I heard this text preached from: "Go
forward don't look back; don't dally
on the road ! Keep your eyes to the
front, and keep a-movtng forward !" I
hope no reader of THE ADVERTISER will
get discouraged and say, It's no use for
me to try to do anything. What has
been done in the past can be done
again. Try again, and imitate the vir
tues of those worthies that I am trying
to tell you about in our county paper.
10. B. Gambrell was born over in An
derson county, and he was kept be
tween the plow handles until he was 21
years old. He then wanted to be no
longer a drone?a hewer of wood and
drawer of water. He felt hampered
for the want of an education, having
never gone to school a single day. He
purchased a blue-back spelling book and
started to learn. Went six months to
an old-field school. That was bis edu
cation. He then went to clerking in
country stores for Matheson, McCul
lough & Sullivan. He stayed for years
with us. He was a fair scribe, a good
calculator and bookkeeper. He sold the
goods, put them on the blotter, then
transcribed the articles to the day
hook and collected all goods sold on
?redit to each purchaser on the ledger.
Country merchants paid their clerks no
big wages, boarded them, and the ex
pense of clothing was not excessive. So
lie saved his wages, bought a tract of
land and purchased stores as he was
able. Put a white tenant on the place
to look after the hands and keep up the
farm. In middle life he concluded he
was now able to support a wife. He
married a Methodist girl who made him
an excellent wife, and she was a help
meet to him indeed. Her Christian life
bad a wonderful influence on him,
brought him into the church and made
him a lifetime member of Mt. Bethel
Young man, don't say I can't. Try
again. What has been done can be
Uemember that when the stomach
digestion must always follow. But
strengthen these same weak inside
nerves with Dr. Sboop's Restorative,
and then see how quickly health will
again return. Weak heart and kidney
nerves can also be strengthened with
the Restorative where heart pains,
palpitation or kidney weakness is found.
Don't drug the stomach nor stimulate
the heart or kidneys. What is wrong.
Go to the cause of these ailments.
Strengthen the weak inside nerves with
Dr. Sboop's Restorative and get well.
A simple, single test will surely tell.

The Way Prisoners In Montenegro Ar*

out for i walk. For two hours every
morulng and again for two hours in

own sense of honor to prevent their
going farther afield unless they be

chains. Tho authorities provide them
with housing, of course, and with
clothes?not uniform ulso with a Ore
at which to cook their foo\i, and they
give them fourpenee a day eacl;

selves. Two of them go to the market,
every moruln. to buy provisions fo?
the day. They are not required to work
unless they choose, and they are classi

of their offense, but according to their
standard of life and general behavior.
