_a$V^_lf^^^a_ Cured of severe compound
ijr cold and cough by
J HMO ?.From Dec. 20, '08, to March 1, '09,
X / X Off'/ 1 had three bad colds, one on top of the
n (. / other. I got so weak 1 could hardly
SSL i/amP^rT^ *^ ^et around- Nothing seemed to help
MKfl^E^^HlBkF^ me until I began to take Vlnol. The
jtflFcF change was magic. Three bottles com
^? ffif^MiiW^ pletely fixed that compound cold ami
??sRHSW^^^ f^y^mwS^r "topped the terrible cough ami what I
^|roSwk^^&- surprises me most, at the same time \
, \r TS^uV \/^*\j^SB/fi* It cured me of a severe stomach trouble
that has bothered me for 20 years.
Vlnol Is certainly a wonderful medicine."
Mr.Toppan is one of Lynn's most prominent and highly respected
merchants, whose word is as good as his bond.
The reason Vinol is so successful in such cases is because it
contains the two most world-famed tonics?the medicinal, strength
ening, body-building elcmei ts of Cod Liver Oil and Tonic Iron.

curing entries devolves largely on
the teachers In the rural schools, to
each of whom Superlntedent Pitts has
ivrltton a personal letter.
The agricultural department of the
government is back of this movemenl
co gut the young boys of the country
Interested in tho growing of corn. Al
ready in many of the counties i>r the

ias been somewhat backward In tak
ing hold, but with tin* efforts of Sup
erintendent Pitts, assisted b> the
teachers all over the county, this year
should see a large club of hoys striv
ing for the prizes, which by the way.
,u addition <?> the honor of being
winner, are well worth working for.

work in South Carolina.
Hoys, you do not have to pay any
thing to enter; all you must do. is to
select your acre for planting, do your

do the planting and the gathering of
the crop. Of course you may ask ail
vice from others, hut do your own
work and use exactly one acre ol

'I THE BUS* BEES. |
By W. D. S.
During tho civil war I was do'.illled
to guard the government stores at
Martin's depot. The provisions were
being stolen at night from the depot.
Our sheriff Samuel Anderson resided
I here. He was a lover of bees and
kept them for their honey. A swarai
came OUt one day and settled on a
peach tree. Mr. Anderson attempted
to hive them and they stung him so
badly that he gave up the job. Aaron
Caspory a .lew was in business at
Marlins and he made it good deal of
sport at Mr. Anderson foi being run
off by the little bees
"Why I can rake up those bees in
my hands and put them in the gum."
"Caspery! You let those bees alone.
Von have been drinking peach brandy
and honey and they will sting you
to death.'' Caspery marched down to
the peach tree, caught hold of the
limb and gave it a vigorous shake,
and the bees covered him. Von never
heard such yelling, slapping and light
ing as Caspery and the bees had. I
ami Mr. Anderson did nil we could
to get the lues off him, and went to
doctoring htm up. I thought he would
surely die. He swelled up till his
eyes were closed anil his head was
is big as a pumpkin. In a few days
Aaron was all right again. I guess
he was never fond of honey after this

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional rem
edies. Deafness is caused by an in
flni.I condition of the muscous lining
of the ICustachlan Tube. When this
tube is Inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or Imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed, deafness is the
result, ami unless the Inflammation
can be taken out and this tube restor
ed to its normal condition, hearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out
of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is
nothing but an Inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness (caused by Ca
tarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for Circulars
