There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven catarrh to be a constitu
tional disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca
tarrh Cure, mannifactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally in doses from 10
drops to a teaspoonful. It actsi directly
on the blood and mnceus surfaces of

dollars for any case it fails to cnre.

On old neighbor and friend, George
Butler, is dead. This solemn event,
this final hour that will strike for us
all,came to him about 5 a. m. on
Menday 6th inst. To him it was
neither sudden :nor unexpected. Ad
monished by recurrent paralytic
strokes, which had sapped his vigo
rous and active manhood, he was fully
conscious that his term of life was
near its close, and contemplated it
with composure. Like the ready
debtor, he was prepared to pay this
final debt to nature without demur or
perturbation. He was the only son
of the late Dr. G. B. Pearson. Of his
sisters, Mrs. Boyce, relict of the late
Hon. W. W. Boyce, alone survives
him. He was twice married. His
wife and four children, three daugh
ters and a son, are left and lament
their great loss.
He wss a loyal soldier o the Con
federacy, and served his country
faithfally and bravely at the front
throughout the war. He was a fond
and devoted husband and fa ther, pos
sessed of a most happy sociai tempera
ment, genial, jovial and generous, a
true and loyal friend., His friends
will always recall to memory with
regretful pleasure his bright, honest
