the shortage in our customary
amount of pica in this issue.
Diedrich has long been com
plaining of failure of his vision.
He is now possessor of a hand
some pair of gold-rimmed spec
tacles. He declares he can
row set twice as much pica as
before. Hence the editor will
be obliged to write more.
Lew Addey has resigned his
post as first cornetist with the
Valley band, and his absence
will be felt, for we all remem
ber the delightful notes that he
wrung from his golden-voiced
instrument during the hillside
concerts of the past summer.
Lew gives as his reason for
withdrawing the allegation that
he was the only member of the
band able to properly read his
notes. He expects to start a
music studio in our village.
There ought to be a good open
ing here for one, if we are to
believe all that Mr. Addey says.
Dud Einks, bur popular
.hooting gallery operator, who
has been missing from these
parts during the summer
months, he having been play
ing the county fairs, has re
turned to spend the winter with
the home folks. He has rented
a store room on Main street and
has set up his targets for busi
ness. Each day a goose is to
be awarded to the patron with
the highest target average.
Tuesday Eben Dodds was in
from the south for the day. He
got likered up a bit, and allow
ed he would take a shot for the
prize. Eben misunderstood the
rules of the game and blazed
away at the goose. He won, but
engagement, her name being
linked with those of several
young men, some worthy and
some otherwise. Miss Boots,
putting aside her natural mod
esty, owing to the gravity of the
situation, requests us to brand
as false these rumors concern
ing her, and to say that she is
not at present contemplating
matrimony. When the question
was pressed whether a certain
young man had popped to her,
Miss Boots declined to answer,
though a guilty blush came to
her velvety cheeks. The editor
is not in the habit of going
about with a blanket over his
head, and therefore he has
been hearing stories appertain

marry, just yet, and we reckon
we will have to take her word
for it, and let it go at that for

Olaf Mitten, who took part in
the two presidential straw
votes taken at Spencer's store
a few weeks before election,
says he has been accused of
voting for Chafin. He, with the
others who participated, refus

the time, but now that he is
wrongfully charged, he requests
this paper to say for him that
he did not favor Chafin. He says
Wilson was his man from the

diligent inquiries and is unable
to find any man in that straw

he voted for anyone but the

XOT SIRE OF SUIT.
(Bisbee, Ariz., Review.)
The bride, a beautiful girl of the
blonde type, wore a handsome cos
tume of blue silk cut princess, and car
ried a bouquet of carnations tied with
mull of the 6ame color. She was
attended by the charming Mrs. Pat
Nathan, who wore a robe of cloth of
gold and a picture hat to match. The
groom was attended by his best man,
Billy Graham, Lowell's distinguished
son, the black-smith-statesman, who,
c!ad in a high silk hat, a white neck
tie, and apparently a dress suit, made
a dashing figure.

This is what I call systematic ca

to rectify the trouble by absorbing
the poison and carrying it out through
the kidneys. The result Is sickness;
called auto intoxication. It Is exactly
this kind of thing that happens in
systemic catarrh. The catarrhal se
cretions that do not escape by the in
ternal organs are absorbed by the
blood vessels and carried through the
system and the result is systemic catarrh.

One of the most, beautiful and most

scenes ihat was ever presented to a
Wilson assemblage mvM be witnessed
Tuesday night when Lawrence Brett,
the president of the Brett Dredging
company, will lead to Hymen's altar
Miss Mildred Roney, the highly talent
ed and brilliantly polished and very
fascinating daughter of our highly es
teemed townsman, Captain R. G. Ron
ey, one of Wilson's most prominent
and influential business men, for in his
noble lire of splendid usefulness he
has exhibited the resplendent virtues
or loftiest citizenship. And as Miss
Roney has richly inherited his vir
tues and the charms and graces of
her elegant mother, she is one of the
most popular and lovable maidens in
Wilson. And in addition a vast array
of the most ravishing personal charms
! she has musical talent of the hieh-
est order, being avocalist of sublim
est powers, for she has a highly cul
tured voice of richest, melody and rar
est sweetness, and her seemingly
heaven tuned notes are as pure and as
sweet as the Image of the morning
star, when bathing in the dewdrops
that lie nestling in the fragrant pet
als of the flowers. And Mr. Brett
la a high toned gentleman, and is
worthy of the brilliant jewel that is
to sparkle in the basket of his love
and devotion, and he is indeed to be
congratulated, for under her lovelight
every scenewill be a picture of para
dise, every word a poem of enchant
ment, ind every sound an echo of
celestial harmonies, for with the love
of such a jewel won, heaven with its
rapture has on earth began.

"Pull out one gray hair and a dozen
will take its place'' is an old Baying,
which is, to a great extent, true, if no
steps are taken to stop the cause. When
gray hairs appear it is a sigri that Na
ture needs assistance. It is Nature's
call for help. Gray hair. dull. lifeless
hair, or hair that is falling out, is not
necessarily a sign of advancing age, for
there are thousands of elderly people
with perfect heads of hair without a
6infrle streak of gray.
When gray hairs come, or when the
hair seems to be lifeless or dead, some
good, reliable hair-restoring treatment
should be resorted to at once. Special
ists say that one of the best prepara
tions to use is the old-fashioned "sa?e
tea" which our grandparents used. Ine
best preparation of this kind is Wyeth's
sage ana ouipnur nair nemeay, a prep
aration of domestic sage and sulphur,
scientifically compounded with later dis
covered hair tonics and stimulants, the
whole mixture being carefully balanced
and tested by experts.
Wyeth's Sarre and Sulphur is clean and
