pleased to learn that there Is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure in all
Its stages and that is Catarrh.?
Hall's Catarrh Gure Is the only
positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Oure is taken Internally,
acting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of the disease, and giving the pa

constitution and- assisting nature
in doing its work. The proprietors

Democratic Convention to order and
effected an organization with Dr. Jno.
R. Smith as President^ Dr. Jno. 8.
Wolff as Vice President and W. S.
Powers as Secretary. The conven
tion, it was apperent was divided into
Irby and Tillman faetlo is about equal
in strength. It soon became apperent
however, that the Corservatlves or
antl element, about twenty votes, were
with the Irbyltos and with this help
they carried the day putting Dr. Smith,
in the ehair. This was a pretty fight
gallantly fought by the leaders of the
Tillman forces. Dr. A. C. Fuller in
troduced the resolutions which appear
below, supported in a strong speech by
Judge O. G. Thompson and others?
There was but one solitary, lone, lone
sone "no" heard in response to the
negative demand from the Chairman.

Whereas, the free and unlimited coin
ago of gold and silver is a time-honored
and fundamental doctrine of Jeffersonian
Democracy, tho maintenance of which
is of essential and vital consequence to
the interests of the great producing
classes with which we are identified;
ami whoreas the goldbug Democracy,
instigated by selfish greed, are Beeking
by. false pretenceB, insidious encroach
ment, and the contraction of the curren
cy as to silver and United StateB Treas
ury notes, and tho establishment of a
single gold staudard, to further enslave
the people and confiscate thoir property;
and whereas the question of financial
reform is the groat, burning and vital
queiition ot the National campaign now
pending; Bo it therefore?
Resolved 1st, That we demand of tho
National Democracy, when assembled
in convention at Chicago, a clear and
unmistakable utteranco for free silver, 16
to 1, the Ibsuo of all paper money by tho
government in sufficient volume, and a
system of banking which will provido
against the concentration and conges
tion of money in tho large cities to the
detriment and ruin of the country.
2d, That we demand of the National
Democratic Convention the nomination
of a candidate for President who is a
bona fide, unconditional and unmistaka
ble friend of free silver.
3d, That no one should be sent as a
delegate to represent ub in the May
convention in Columbia who is not in
full accord with these principles.
Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly for
The illustrated "Lee of Virginia"
series is continued in the May
number of Frank Leslie's Popular
Monthly with a paper by Henry
Tyrrell, relating to General Lee's
part in the momentous events of
the years 1859-18G2. These events
include the John Brown raid at
Harner's Ferry, the secession of
the Southern States and outbreak
of the Civil War, General Lee's re
signation from the United States
Army, and appointment to the com
mand of the Confederate forces of
Virginia, his campaign in the
West, the establishment of Jeffer
son Davls?at Richmond as Presi
dent of the Confederacy, the first
battle of Bull Bun, and General
McClellan's invasion of Virginia by
way of the Peninsula and advance
upon Richmond. Akin to this
subject is a charming sketch writ
ten by Mrs. Jefferson Davis, de
scriptive of life in tho "White
House of the Confederacy" during
the war. Mrs. Roger A. Pryoradds
an interesting chapter and an ex
quisite portrait to her "Ancestry
of General Lee." Other notable
features of the number are the il

denly stop, look upward and around
us and our minds are occupied with
more pleasant thoughts for they
are completely absorbed In the
beauties of nature. First we gaze
over the hill sides and level fields
which only a few months ago
looked so cold and barren but are
now so pretty and green. Then our
eyes slowly turn In another direc

beautiful does it look robed in its

soem to be a roal sourco of pleas

so bravoly for their country and
our country, and it is our duty to
ever remember them on that day
and try to make them feel that
their love and work is appreciated
by their children and friends. We
should never let tho thought that
our fathers and friends fought, bled
and died for our country, pass from
our minds, but keep the thought
ever fresh in our memory that it
may be an inspiration to us to help
them keep Up their unnual re-un

Seldom is it our duty to chroni
cle so sad a death as that of Mr. P.
F. Moore who died several weeks
ago at his home at this place. For
several months ho had boon in de
clining health and lifo was almost
despaired of, but with all this when
tho final summons came it came
with a gxoat shock both to his fam
ily and community. Brother Moore
was a man who was loved and re
spected by all who knew him; he
always had a kind word for every
one whom ho met. He united
himself with the Lanford Bap
tist church some five or six years
ago and lived a faithful member of
that church until his death. He is
greatly missed by us all. He was a
noble man, an exemplary Christian
a kind father, a devoted husband
and a true friond. The funeral
services were conducted in the
Baptist church, by tho pastor
Rev. J. T. Littlejohn. The church
was filled to overflowing, which
proved his great number of friend
in which he was held by the com
munity in which he lived. Every
thing that was possible for loving
hands to do was dono to prolong
his stay horo on oarth, but no, tho
Lord saw best to call him homo
His work was done, his lifo ha
budded and bloomed and upon th
brittle stem which bound him to
earth was sovered, we have every
reason to believo that ho was
transplanted in Heaven. Ho spoke
beautifully and calmly of death
and said only a few days before h
died that he could almost lay his
hand on his son who preceded him
to the gravo two years ago. May
a kind Heavenly Father who 1
ever ready to comfort deal gently
with the grief stricken family
and may they evor be ready to
say, Thy will, Oh! Lord, not min
be done. Gkhaldinf.
