Children FOR FLETCHER'S CASTORIA C ry Editor Advertiser: The sidewalk leading from the square westward in front of Adam Henrich's and Mias Biggie Allen's lot is in a dangerous condition and has been tor many months. The attention of the street commissioners and of the board of aldermen has been called to this matter, and still nothing has been done. The planks, what few are there, are in many instances lying endwise and the ends sticking up from three to five inches, and both eods of many planks are loose. It is dangerous to travel the walk in the day time and it is doubly so at night. Unless this walk is fixed, it is almost certain that someone will be seriously hurt and the town will then have on ita bands a large damage suit. The curve of the street at that point prevents the elec tric lights from reaching this walk, rendering the danger greater at night. This walk is traveled more than any walk in town, and should be immedi ately put in first class condition. The people of Lexington are paving high taxes and should fce entitled to some corresponding benefits. If the pioper ty owners will not put the sidewalks down, there is an ordinance requiring the board of aldermen to have it done and charge it up to the property ers. Why has not this been dc these instances? own one in Yours truly. TAX PAYER. Stlflcr-Lvon. Mr. Edward 8. Stigler, of Stigler.

This is the MAXWELL of course. We selected this car to eell above all others, for the simple reason that we did not want to sell a car that would afterwards be giving ns trouble, and making trouble for as with our customers. After a careful study of the proposition we found that the MAXWELL was far and away the car we wanted. And now we have secured the Agency. Ask any man who knows anything about Automobiles and he will tell you how good the Maxwell is. We don't mean by Ahis the man who has a car and is so wrapped up in that car that he doesn't know or care anything about any other car. But we mean the man who knojva about Automobiles generally, and who keeps posted about them by reading the best literature covering the subject. a § S I 2 They Stand Up and We are Going to Prove it to You. We have some cars coming and we invite you to watch them. S s i Id the MAXWELL line we can offer you cars ranging in price from $550 up to $1,600 and we are ready to guarantee you that any one of them will do the work. Furthermore, we will be right here so that you may pitch into us in case your car doesn't suit you. You will not have to write to us, but you may walk down and discuss the matter at length. We have no fear that you will want to. Then too, we expect to sell a good many Maxwell Cars here, and will keep on hand a complete supply of Maxwell parts so that it will be unnecessary to be always ordering something. We're here, we've got the car that's right, we're ready to back it up. Come to see os and have a ride. If you ever get in a Maxwell car you willl never get out again without wanting one.

YOU*. r GEO. BOTTLE * 80NS. "Tbs Gates of MeN ShsB Not Prevail Against It." Sometimes when the davs are dark and dreary and I look upon tbe world with tbe jaundiced eye; when every thing seems to go wrong and thieves prosper and honest men are in want, it seems that the battle against wrong isn't worth the while. Sometimes when it seems to me that the world is going to tbe devil at a sixty mile gait and that God has hidden bis face from us and forgotten the bow of his promise that is painted in the sky of love and mercy, I recall with gladness this quo tation that fell from the lips of that Teacher of Teachers who said in re ference to his church that "Tbe gates of hell shall not prevail against it!" How much comfort there is "to be had in knowing that we will triumph "in tbe sweet bve and bye. " I am so glad that we have that assurance. I am glad that we know that our labors shall not be in vain. I am glad that the influence of The Prince of Peace is growing greater and more pronounced in the lives of true men and women. I am sorry though, that in tbe face of this promise, this assurance, that fell from tbe lips of tbe Carpenter's Son some of us are prone to grow faint and weak and wan to lay down the burden because the day is hot and rest 'neath the shades of the trees of sin. I am sorry that we grow so doubtful as to the final outcome of things as to say that tbe world, after all, is growing worse. Yes, I am sublimely sorry of all this but I am exceedingly happy that "the gates of hell shall not pre vail against it. " Tell me that this old earth is growiog worse after hav ing come in direct touch with God himself? Tell me that the Holy Spirit ie casting its power? Tell me that Christ has died in vain and that tbe Almighty God let bis son suffer untold agonies for naught? I would rather believe that there is no God I would rather believe that such men as Peter, Paul, John, Luke and all tbe other apostles never existed save, perhaps, in the imagination. I wonld rather believe the Bible a book of fancy wrought legends. God save tbe Plan of Salvation from such friends. God, save me from such beliefs. I am glad that I believe that ' 'the qates of bell prevail against it." S. S shall not Auction sale.
