THE PUTNEY COLUMN
SUCCESSFUL ORANGE FAIR.
School Exhibits Particularly Qood Lec
ture In Meetings Have Dome Results
Premium List.
The fifth annual fair of Putney
Orange was held Friday ufternoon and
evening. Although the plans were not
as extensive as lust year the fair was
Interesting and Instructive. The school
exhibits were particularly good and
were a surprise to somo who had not
kept In touch with the work of the
different grades. District No. 5 Is a
small school with few grades, and they
have moro time for, taking up domestlo
science, sewing, etc., than tho schools
where there are more pupils and more
grades.
Many of the apples shown were from
orchards which had been sprayed for
the first time. Many of the young peo
ple on tho farms have attended the
meetings and heard the .lectures on the
subject of caring for tho orchard. Some
of tho farmers at the fair .expressed
wishes for their sons and daughters to
plant new orchards the coming year,
thus encouraging the boys to stay on
the farms. Those who have had a good
crop of potatoes had good exhibits, and
are disposing of them for a good price.
Andrew Wooley's trace of the old
Holder! corn was handsome, while a
newer variety exhibited by Arthur Lov
cll was of very long and slender ears,
and deserves special mention.
Tho old-fashioned supper served from
6 to 8 o'clock was well patronized, as
was the Ice cream parlpr.

Honest Advice to
Consumptives
Somehow there exists a vast amount of
scepticism as to the possibility of curing
Consumption. We state none but facts,,
and are Blncere In what we assert.
If we were afflicted with Tuberculosis,
we should do precisely what we ask
others to do take Kckinan's Alterative
promptly and faithfully. The reason we
should do this and warrant we have
for asking all Consumptives to take
It, Is that we havo the reports of many
recoveries, one of which follows:
1010 Susquehanna Ave., I'lillu., Pa.
"Gentlemen: For two years I was af
flicted with hemorrhages of the lungs,
the number totaled nearly one hundred.
Our family physician advised another
climate, as to remuln would probably be
fatal. However, I remained, and In Feb
ruary of 1002, I was taken with a severe
attack of pneumonia. When I recovered
sufficiently to walk about the houso I was
left with a frightful backing cough,
which no medicine I bad taken could alle.
vlate. It was at this time. March, 1002,
that I learned of and started taking
Kckman's Alterative. In a short time
my cough was gone and I was pronounced
well. Since that time I have had two
si lull t attacks of pneumonia and I have
resorted to no other medicine to effect a
cure.
"I am at present In excellent health. and
feel that as long as I cap obtain Eclt
man's Alterative, I have no fear of Con
sumption, I cannot sneak too highly for
the good It has done."
