llivcr. This titatenicnt, however, reaped
to le a faft o'mc. ten or more years
ago, theu the Father of Waters, in
one of lm erratic moods, forced a new
chaniiel for himself and left Vlck-liur(t
jterchej on a high Muff, several miles
Inland. The town, which had lieen one
of the most Important steamboat ports
on tlx? Iiig stream, was thus suddenly
deprived of much of the tralllo that
had raided it to prosper. Strangely
enough the misfortune was an echo of
thf Tamous siege of Vicksburg. nnd
Ofnornl U. S. firant was primarily iv
rjKinslMe for it. In order that the
Union, gunboats might run past the
shore batteries unharmed Grant fought
to divert the waters of the Mississippi
away from the city by digging a new
channel. The great river refused at.
the time to taketho new course marked
out for It, but it eventually did so,
more than thirty years after such ac
tion could be of any use to the Union
Naturally the people of V'ekpburgdid
not accept with good grace the Missis
sippi's belated performance, so damag
ing to their material interests. They
clamored for a restoration of tho old
days when they dwelt near navigable
water and when stately floating pal
aces touched at their wharves ami
trade tloimished. They appealed t
Congress for aid, and the national law
makers made an appropriation For con
structing a canal northward to the Ya
zoo River. This canal was recently
completed, and the water was let inta
the channel deserted by the Missis
sippi. The f.ow was abundant and
filled the space from bank Jo bank,
making Vicksbr.rg once more a river
town. The event caused general re
joicing in the city, which has already
begun to feel the good effects of re
newed traffic Leslie's Weekly..

been disciplined in tho amenities of
life of those who radiate an atmos

Cheerfulness, enforced at first, by

W. J. Hill, of 40 South Union street,
Concord, N. C, proprietor of hardware
and harness store, Justice of the Peace,
and one of the best known residents
of that city, says: "Doan's Kidney
Pills proved a very efficient remedy In
my case. I got a box at the Gibson
Drug Store and used them for disor
dered kidneys and backache, from
which I had experienced a great deal
of annoyance, trouble and pain. The
kidney secretions had bothered me for
a long while, were very irregular, dark
colored and full of sediment. The Pills
cleared it all up and I have not had
an ache in n;- back since taking the
last dose. My back is much stronger
and my health generally is improved
a great deal. I am glad to make a pub
lic endorsement of the Pills, trusting
that it may be the means of relieving
some other sufferer."

medicine which cured Mr. Hill will be
