Prompt evica. Reliable goods. Real mechianical condition.
Charleston, Miss.-Mrs. R. V. Heins, of tis place,
says: "I have niever had to usc very muCh medicine,
because if 1 felt headache, dizziness, or colds, bad taste
}in the mouith, which conmes from torpid liver, I would
take a dose or more of Black-Draug~ht, and it would
stralgghten me out and make me feel as good as ncw.
We have used in our family for years
and it certainly is the best liver medicine I ever saw,
It has not onlly saved mec money, it has helped keep my
system in shape, and has never weakened me as so
many physics do. I recommend it to my friends and am
glad to do so." Black-Draught i5 the old, reliable liver
medicine which you have doubtless heard much about.
When you feel badly all over, stomach not right, bad
taste in your mouth, bilious, or have a headache, try
Thedford's Black-Draught. At all Druggists.
Always Insist on the Genuine!

OLDEST OF STATE Mo1TOES
That of Maryland Was. Adopted in
1648-Enshrined In HIstory of
The Maryland suffraglsts who pro
pos altering the state's niotto, "Fattl
Maschy Parole Fewinne" (to use the
old spelling), are proposing to put
rough hands to what should be sacred.
The offensive translation, "Deeds are
itisculline, words are fetinine," is not
the only one possible. The secretary
of state could readily be directed to
give ofilcial approval to "manly deeds
and wotanly words," which would
give women a recognition they enjoy
in no other stato motto.
But the best reason for jealously
guardlng Maryland's motto is that it Is
the oldest the nation can boast-the
(late of its adoption Is placed In 1048
-and Is enwrapped with Maryland
history to a remarkable degree. Throw
away the Baltimore motto and Mary
land might as well turn the portrit
of George Calvert, first Lord BaltI
more, to the wall.
There are other state mottoes that
are open to attack. Alabtina's "11ere
We Rest" suggests an obvious joke.
So doles Washington's "Ily and By."
V'lrginlia's iotto recalls John Wilkes
Booth, Now York's the rather tawdry
dennlaatiion by Longfellow whieh It
Inspired, and those of several other
states-like Kansas' "Ad Astra l'vr
Aspernt"-the rhaetore of commence
ments. Wilie tlese. states Cleave to
their mottoes inrylanel may well be
bolastful of hers an11d Its assoclations.
