- Green Sickness
Delicate girls who are approaching the age of womanhood are usually subject to
this disease. They are pale because the blood Is weak and watery. Their
complexion has a sickly greenish cast which gives the disease Its name. They
have no vitality and if exposed to any unusual excitement, excessive labor or
cold dampness are liable to contract some disease that will disastrously effect
their whole future lives. It is a most critical period. The right remedy to
relieve this condition and bring back the rosy huo of health is
-?? ?? dr. Simmons''!
Squaw Vine Wine,
It !s a palatable remedy, a fine, pleasant tasting medicine. Its agreeable flavor,
however, is no criterion of its efficacy. It does the work expected of It more
promptly than the harsh, bitter tasting medicines. It begins the restorative process
with the first duse and If used for a reasonable period, the misery, weakness and
pallor disappear, the spirits rtse, the appetite becomes good, the sleep sound and
restful and the thin, vitiated blood is revitalized and goes coursing through the
veins, carrying new life, strength and energy to all parts of the body.

Greenville Board of Trude Issues Spe
cial insurance Edition of "Greater
The Greenville Board of Trade ha?> 1
just Issued another edition of its lit
tle periodical "Greater Greenville",
this time the contents being devoted
to insurance, both tire and life. The
life Insurance articles are devoted to
giving reasons why the home compan
ies should be patronized, showing that
by keeping the state's Insurance pre
miums at home the Interest rates on
money will be decreased and more
funds will be at hand to loan for in
dustrial Improvements. It Is a sad j
fact that the north is scraping the
cream of the south's earnings through
insurance premiums. The articles on
fire Insurance are devoted largely to
showing the enormous and useless fire
waste in this country. One statement
went to show that the fire loss in the
United States for ten years Is equal
to the value of two out of the last
ten cotton crops. "In 1907 the per
capita losses in the cities of the six
leading Suropean countries amounted
to but 33 cents, while in the United
States they were $2.51," an enormous
difference. The closing article of the
little booklet gave six precautionary
measures for avoiding fires:
How to Prevent Fires.
1. A large part of the fire waste of
this country is directly due to untidy
conditions. Heavy losses naturally

4. Open flue holes should be pro
