Durant, April 17, 1904 As there is very little going on in Durant at this writing, your readers need not expect very much of any consequence. The cold winds have made every one cool, both in bodv and disposition. Overcoats that were brushed and laid away for future use ,are now used freely every eve and morn. The coal wagon is busy running from early morn until nature's dewy eve. Berry growers are all in mourning, as their proceeds will be small, on ac- ' count of L the inferiority of the fruit and the consequent small demand and low price at this period of the gath ering season. This is. indeed, a great misfortune, when we consider the great amount of labor and expense it takes to finish up a crop. The news has reached us that our old friend, ex-Gov. Bob Taylor is now an grass widower, he and his better half failing to agree upon the con tract they entered into a short time since. A popular saying has it, that there is no quarreling in the hearing of sweet sound, but it appears to us that there has been a discord some where in the notes of Bob's fiddle. . 11 There are a very few people that will refuse to borrow' money when they have the opportunity to do SO. There is nothing that will so infatuate him ; nothing that will so lead him to 7 • • the belief that there is tin opening for him than when he sees an adver ■ tiaement, ' money to loan. He thinks that he will tow tw.lv. month, t. pay it back and that is a long time. But did you ever think about it, that that money is the worst enemy you've got? It's eating when you are hun gry. It's sleeping when you are wide awake. It's laughing when you are' weeping. It's devouring your corn and cotton when you have no power; to take it up. It's your master and will not allow a moment's rest. It tells you when to rise in the morning' and retire at evening, and then cursesi you for following it. , It is said that if you are a Russian'! sympathizer, read what is dated at. St. Petersburg; and if you side with the Japs, read what is dated from Tokio. Dowie has been expelled from alii public buildings in Australia, because he said old Edward didn't have any religion to spare, about right, if he did say it The meeting at the Baptist church has closed with five accessions. Miss Sadie Sproles is on the sick Old Nelson Miles is a candidate for President on the prohibition ticket. It is he who placed the fetters on Jefferson Davis, yet 'there are South- 1 ern prohibitionists that will cast their votes foi him. Ye gods: We, are a deep-dyed prohibitionist, hut we would vote for Booker Washington first. ■I Well, Dowie isjj 1 H ■I list. Engineer Thomas has been on the list of the sick. Miss Steward, of Birmingham, is] visiting her brother. Mrs. Lyons is in the parental home in Lexington. W. C. Anderson went to Aberdeen* this week. W. B. Potts, the merchant prince of Kosciusko, was here a few days ago. Judge Niles was here a short time since. Mrs. Dr. Cotton has united with the Baptist church. Rev. C. Z. Berryhill called on us a few days ago. What a treat. An exchange says: " How would John Sharp Williams do for a presi dential nominee'/" Just as well as John C. Breckenridge did in 1800 and no moie. Our beloved .John can carry everything south of Mason and Dixon's line on short notice, lie can carry any district in the Southern States after an active canvass, but John will never be president, and it i$ silly in the extreme to put any such suggestion on paper, or of any other t Southern gentlemen. Northern dema gogues and democrats are not will ing to help the country that much. If the average man had his life to live over he would probably make more mistakes than ever. It sometimes happen that two women pose a3 bosom friends be they are afraid of each other. Nothing Equal to Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy for Bowel Complaints in Children.

You want one not only relieves but cures. You want one that is unquestionably harmless. You want one that is pleas ant to take. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy meets all of these conditions. There is nothing so good for the coughs and colds incident to childhood. It is also a certain preventive and cure for croup, and there is no danger whatever from whooping cough when it is given. It has been used in many epidemics of the disease with perfect success. For sale by Swinney & Stigler. Capt. Vernon Moore and L. E. Barr visited Yazoo City Sunday. Good Spirits. Good spirits don'tall come fromKen tucky. Their main source is the liver— and all the fine spirits ever made in the Blue Grass State could not remedy a bad liver or the hundred-and-one ill ef fects it produces. You can't have good spirit* and a bad liver at the same time. Your liver must be in fine condition if you would feel buoyant, happy and hopeful, bright of eye, light of step, vigorous and successful in your pur suits. You can put your liver in fine condition by using Green's August . Flower—the greatest of all medicines f 0r t j, e ]j ver an j R tomaoh and a certain .cure for dyspepsia or indigestion.
