Loans may run from 2 to 10 years. St. Francis County Abstract Co. Office in Court House. HUGHES TIMES. It has been several weeks since we have been represented In your valu able paper, so will try and give you a few happenings of late. We have lieen having (juite a lot of rain recently, which lias caused our roads to be very muddy. We owe un sinted praise to Judge RolfeandMr Taylor for the beautiful roads they made through this section of the county, if they did say we only had cow trails when they came over. They tixed line auto roads and we thank them so much. They also graded tin* streets in town, which adds much to both looks and convenience. The farmers are just about through harvesting the golden grain in this vie nity. School is progressing nicely. Both patrons and pupils are highly pleased with Miss Andrews as teacher. Mrs. Lynch, of Marianna, visited her daughter, Mrs. Futrell, last week in town. The hox supper given at the school house Thanksgiving was an enjoyable affair. A neat little sum of *15.AO was realized, which goes to pay on the or gan. There ;s also talk of having a X mas tree here. Let’s don’t ju-d talk, let's have it. Say, “Kronlc Kicker,” don't give all those pecansaway. Come over and help me eat walnuts and hickory nuts, and just slip a few pecans in that “pocket.” Mr W. S. Turnham, of Memphis, was in town Monday on special busi ness. Messrs. Young and Davis spent Sat urday night and Sui day with home folks, returning back to their camp Sunday evening. Singing was enjoyed by all who at tended church Sunday night. Mrs. Arch Pryor and Mrs. Ham mond were pleasant callers on Cat Lake Sunday. There will be preaching at Hughes school building Sunday at 11 o’clock. We hope all will attend. Mr. and Mrs. .1. I). Stoddard were shopping in Hughes Tuesday. Unis. Many Ituined Lives. Hundreds can point to the use of calomel as the cause of decay. Its strenuous effects upon the liver, kid neys and even the heart are known to every practicing physician. Medical science lias found a vegeta ble compound that eliminates the poisons from the liver and accumula tions from tlie bowels in a safer and saner way than does calomel and leaves no ill after-effects. This remedy in the form of Guios hy’s Liv- vku-La x is a proven success. It is for sale in 60c and $1.00 bottles by the City Drug Store, which guar antees to refund purclia'e price if you want it.. It is always protected by the likeness of L. K. Grigsby. Hotel Changes Hands. The Fisher Hotel, which has been conducted for the past eight years or more by Mr. Geo. E. Fisher, whose popularity as a landlord is not con lined by the bounds of this state, changed hands Monday morning, Mr. Fisher stepping out and Mrs. Nena Landers taking charge. The new manager has had considerable experi ence in the hotel business, and her former patrons are confident that the well-known hostelry will lose none of its prestige and popularity under her administration and under its new name, “The Arlington,” by which it will he known in future. Mr. Fisher has moved to his home in the northern part of the city, and his time will be full occupied for a while in building additions to his dwelling and making other improvements which will, when completed, provide him with one of the coziest and most convenient homes in the city. The Times joins in best wishes fur the success of the, Arlington hoping that prosperity beyond her most san. guine expectations may reward Mrs. Landers. TAX COLLECTOR 74JEARS OLD Expected to Resign on Account of Feebleness — Gained Strength and Twenty-four Pounds by Taking Vinol. Corinth, Miss.: - “I am a city tax collector and seventy-four years of age. I was in a weak, run-down condition so that I became exhausted by every little exertion. My druggist told me about Vinol, and I decided to take it. In a week I noticed considerable improve ment; I continued its use and now I have gained twenty pounds in weight, and feel much stronger. I consider Vinol a fine tonic to create strength for old people.”—J. A. Price, Corinth. Miss. As one grows old their organs act more slowly and less effectually than in youth, circulation is poor, the blood gets thin, the appetite poor and diges tion weak. Vinol, our delicious cod liver and iron tonic, is the ideal strengthener and body buildei for old folks because it creates a good healthy appetite, strengthens digestion, enriches the blood, improves circulation and in this natural manner builds up, strengthens and invigorates feeble, run-down, nerv ous and aged people, and if it does not do all we say, we will pay back your money.

Robert Brown, Will Hammond and Walter Crawford, three colored youths, are in jail for burglarizing the dry goods establishment of George Swartz, Jackson street, on the night of the 2nd inst., mention of which was made in last week's Times, The clue which led to the appre hension of the thieves was furnished by as trilling a tiling as a pair of socks. On Monday Street Commissioner George Booley noticed that the socks worn by one of ills crew, young negro named Robert Brown, were in pretty baii shape, and asked the boy w y be didn’t put on another pair In the afternoon Brown appeard wearing a pair of handsome silk hose, a circum stance which set Mr. Dooley to think ing, as lie was reasonably sure that the negro could not have legitimate y come by such costly hosiery. He at once surmised that these socks must tie a portion of the loot from tlie Swartz store, and went quietly to work to investigate. By means knownonly to himself lie spotted the criminals and located the stolen goods Procuring a searcli warrant, which was placed in the hands of Constable Tom Johnson, the dwellings of James Thomas and Hattie Kyle were search ed. In the former there were found two pairs of pants, one dress shirt, one pair of supporters, one sweater, six pairs hose, and a suit case, left there by Walter Crawford, and from the Kyle woman's house were recov ered one pair of shoes, one dress shirt, one work shirt, one suit clotl.es and a suitcase, left there by Will Hammond The stolen articles were positively identified by Mr. Frank Swartz, man ager of the looted store, as the prop erty taken from his place the night it was burglarized. After their arrest the prisoners ad mitted their guilt to Constable John son, in the presence of Commissioner Dooley, acknowledging that lie “had 'em;" that they had committed the burglary and had the goods. A preliminary hearing was had be fore Squire Sam Hodges Wednesday morning and the culprits remanded to the grand jury under *500'bail, failing to give which they were committed to jail for trial at the March term of the circuit court I’ains in Hack anil Hips.

G White, the new min ister of the Baptist, church, accom panied by his mother, his wife and three children, arrived Friday and preached his initial sermon Sunday night. The church was crowded to the doCTrs, chairs were brought In from the Sunday-school room, and still many could find only standing room. The sermon was a strong etTort, and the congregation was more than well pleased with the talented speaker’s discourse. The ministers of the other churches accorded a graceful and brotherly tribute to the new minister by abandoning services and urging their members to worship with the Baptist congregation. The Times joins in a hearty wel come to Elder White and Ms ini' r esting family, and wishes for them all success and happiness in their new home. ■■ ■ - .« No. 40 WEAREVER The Hot Water Bottle of 401 :cs A hot water bottle is on of the most necessarv rubber ar ticles in the home.''
