Facts About The
Great Majestic Range,
It is the only range in the world made of Malleable and
It has, beyond any question of a doubt, the largest and
It uses about half the fuel used on other ranges, and
does better work by far.
2 The Majestic All Copper Nickeled Reservoir heats the
water quicker and hotter than any other. It is the only
reservoir with a removable frame.
The Charcoal Iron Body of the Great Majestic Range
lasts three times as long as a steel body.
Being made of non-breakable material, there is practi
cally no expense for repairing the Majestic.
As for baking, it is perfection, not only for a few months,
but for all times to come.
A GREAT MAJESTIC RANGE lasts three times as long
as a cheap range, but it don't cost three times as much.
PROOF?We don't ask you to take our word for any of the
above statements, but if you will call at our store, a man from
the factory, where Majestic ranges are made, will prove to your
satisfaction, that these are absolute facts, and will show you
many more reasons why the Great Majestic Range is absolutely
the best that money can buy.
I JOHN COOLEY AND BETSEY. |
Did you ever get down and seriously
think how many sorts and kinds of
people it takes to make a world? Out
of the innumerable multitudetjhat could
not be numbered, was John and Bet
It did not take much to feed the two,
and John did not hanker much after
the hot sun shine rather devote his
time to hunting and fishing. The old
man could not hold himself still. Had
a bad attack of palsy. The first time
I saw him trying- to shoot a squirrel
out of (a high poplar tree, thinks I
old fellow you wont hit the top of the
tree, the way that gun is shaking. At
the crack of the old musket, down fell
the squirrel?he got the right wabble
The last time I saw John, he was
poping down from Cooley's bridge to
sec his kin. I called him in and had a
chat with him. John, I have heard of
one of yonr fishing trips down Reedy
river, and wish to know something
about it; I have heard them say that
you were fishing one day at mouth of
the John Suihson creek, for eels, and
you just fished over the bed of willows
that had had been cut off the bank and
piled in the edge of the water, and
?caught right there, eighty eels, and the
smallest one was as large as your
wrist. Now John, honor bright was
this true? "Yes, every word of it is
So he confirmed the old tale. It is
best to allow a little latitude to fishing
and hunting tales.
Betsey could turn the cup and tell
fortunes. "We divinest with the cup,"
you had to make coffee (the stronger,
the better) and fill the cup and let her
drink off the coffee. . Then turn down
the smoking cup, until the sediments
settled on the sides, on turning up the
cup again your fortune was read from
lines on the inside of the cup. The
girls often visited Aunt Betsey to get
their fortunes told, and I never knew
her not to tell a g-ood one.
Always a pretty young man?the
handsomest and richest young man in
the land, arid they would believe every
word the old woman told them.
There has always been a grain of
superstition in us and will be until the
end of time.
All the old militia companies had a
lifer and drummer. John Cooloy was
the drummer for the Hickory Tavern
Company. Thomas Manly, the miller
was greatly troubled with rats at the
mill. We heard that if a drum was
beaten in the house at night, it would
frighten o(f the rats. Wo sent for
Cooley and he drummed over the mill
from cellar to garrett, until bod time.
Abc Machen got out some of the negro
boys and collected a pile of fiint rocks
on the side of the road, and waited
Cooley's return, When near, they
threw a few rocks around him. He ex
claimed "who is that! mind what you
?are doing." They then throwed the
rocks around him, and Cooley broke
into a run, Abe eaid, as far aa he' could
hear him, he could hear the clater of
his wooden shoes. He ran two miles
and fell in the door of Betsey Hice at
the Tavern. She grabbed him and
shook him until the breath got into him
again. "John, what in the world is
matter with you," "Betsey somebody
tried to kill me with rocks as I came
up the big road."
Attack of Diarrhoea Cured by One Dose
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy.
I was so weak from an attack of diar
rhoea that I could scarcely attend to
my duties, when I took a dose of Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy. It cured me entirely and I
had been taking other medicine for nine
day-j without relief. 1 heartily recom
mend this remedy as being the best to
my knowledge for bowel complaints.?
