Shoals to Issue
RESULT OF MEETING.
Sepaiate Corporation Will be Organized
to Operate Ware Shoals Railroad
as Common Carrier.
A dispatch sent out from Ware
Shoals Wednesday night concerning
the special meeting of the Ware Shoals
Mill stockholders says:
At tho special meeting of the stock
holders of the Ware Shoals Manufac
turing Company held hero today the
capital stock of the company was in
creased from $1,000,000 to $1,300,000,
tho $300,000 increase being preferred
-atock. The proposed increase of $500,
000 was reduced to $300,000 and the
new stock will be issued as scon ns the
necessary arrangements can be made.
The preferred stock will bear interest
at the rate of 7 per cent, per annum
and may be redeemed for par value and
a f> per cent, bonus nt the end of live
The meeting passed off very quietly
and the opposition to the increase was
much smaller than had been expected.
Tho treasurer's report for the eight
months ending February 29 showed the
company to be in excellent condition
despite the financial uncertainty of the
past few months.
The question of the operation of the
Ware Shoals railroad also came up at
the meeting and it was decided to or
ganize a separate corporation to op
erate the railroad. This will be done
and the road made a common carrier as
soon as the necessary arrangements can
A good many of the local stockhold
ers expressed themselves as being very
well pleased with the result of the
That languid, lifeless feeling that
comes with spring and early summer
can be quickly changed to a feeling of
buoyancy and energy by the judicious
use of Dr. Shoop's Restorative. The
Restorative is a genuine tonic to tired,
run-down nerves, and but a few doses
is needed to satisfy the usor that Dr.
Shoop's Restorative is actually reach
ing that tired spot. The indoor life of
winter nearly always leads to sluggish
bowels and to sluggish circulation in
general. The customary lack of exer
cise and outdoor air ties up the liver,
stagnates the kidneys, and ofttimcs
weakens the heart's action. Use Dr.
Shoop's Restorative a few weeks and
all will be changed. A few days' test
will tell you that you are using the right
remedy. You will easily and surely note
the change from day to day. Sold by

Corn and Cash.
Corn in the crib is v jst like cash in
Most farmers who have corn at this
season also have cash.
There are very few farmers who have
cash and no corn.
The man who buys corn at this time
has to send out of the country cash that
would be very acceptable at home.
If York county should raise all the
corn she needs there would be a great
deal more cash than there is, because,
approximately speaking, every bushel
of corn that comes here from the West
pinches one dollar off tho local circula
All good business men have more or
less appreciation of the extent to which
corn is a money crop. It is only those
who have less business capacity, who
hold that there is no money in corn.
It is very rarely the case that a
farmer who makes enough corn to run
him until the next crop gets into finan
cial difficulty, and it. is almost as rare
when a farmer who fails to make suffi
cient corn to run his place geta to the
next crop without trouble. -Yorkville

Warning to Letter Writers.
A young man who is very particular
about his washing recently wrote a
note to his washerwoman and one to
hi* sweetheart, and by a strange fatal
ity he put the wrong address on each
envelope and sent them off. The wash
erwoman was sent the invitation to take
a ride the next day, but when the young
lady read, "If you tumble up my shirt
bosom any more, a? you did last time,
I'll go somenvhere else," she cried all
tho evening, and declared she would
never speak to him again. ? Washington 1
