STHE WATCHMAN is sorry to
learn that the baby child of Mr.
and Mrs. A. B. Hundley was
painfully burned last week. Che
child was playing in thefire with
a piece of paper, which igniting,
carried the flame rapidly to its
clothing. The little ode was
divested of its burning garments
as soon as possible, but not until
it had received several severe
burns. The accident occurred
in New Orleans, where Mrs.
H Iundley and children are visit
ing her parents. We hope the
little one, by this time, is all
right and on the road to recovery,
and that it may be spared the
affliction of suffering long the
consequences of a burning by

A Chll Cure.
t We met a man from the coun
r try the other day who had been
I having 3d-day chills for a long
g time. That was the day for the
'- regular visit of his old enemy,
but for the first time in many
g weeks it failed to put in an ap
t pearance. He couldn't account
- for the failure ot the chill to take
t its wonted hold on any other
t hypothesis than that the rough,
, rugged, bumpy aud ratty road,
down the big hill leading into
town, had kept him and the
wagon jolting about so much
that the chill in the attack upon
him missed its customary lodg
- ment and got lost in the tall
t pines that skirted the road on
f either side. At any rate he
L, missed the chill, didn't buy the
- chill cure he came to town for,
- and went back home sorer in his
bones, but better off by 50 cents.
Moral: If our merchants want
to sell their chill cure medicines
t they bad better contribute to

the old-time domestic remedies
ae generally discarded in favor
of ne Afandartl blood purifier,
