Mr. Watson is an ex cellent preacher, and the congre gatir^' here were much pleased wi.h'him in everyway. He is about 40 years of age, and his family consists of his wife and four children. It has been frequently sugg°sted, and the suggestion is a good one, for every farmer to place his name and the name of his farm on hiB road gate. Not only would persons dr ving to a place more easily find it, but it would add more pleasure and interest to peo ple driving from place to place. This last result would have spe cial effect with regard to well kept and pretty hr uses.

The view that some folks have of helping out a town or com munity in its struggle for growth is what they can get out of it for self. When this spirit becomes strong enough to defeat others who are honestly striving for ad vancement it becomes a positive curse and a hindering cause. But, shorn of its power, as sooner or later it must be, it takes the sweep of the boomerang and crushes the life that gave it growth. £ It is not generally known, but this town owes ex-mayor Dr. S B. Kluttz a vote of thanks. He not only stood firm in saving the town from entering into an en tanglement or two that in the long run would have been detri mental to its future welfare, hut he went down into his private funds and met current indebted ness when the treasury was prac tically defunct. The doctor is not a candidate and would accept no office, and this is not said to help him get one. It may be said however, that the debt of a few years’ standing was only re liquidated. The News-No Pure Drijg Cough Cure Laws would be needed, if all Cough Cures were like Dr. Shoop’B Cough Cure is-and has been for 20 years. The National Law now requires that if any poisons enter into a cough mixture it must be printed on the label or package For this reascn mothers and oth ers, should insist on having Dr. Shoop’s Cough Cure. No poison marks on Dr. Shoop’s labels-and none in the medicine, else it must by law be on the label. And it’s not only safe, hut it is said to be by those that know it best, a tru ly remarkable cough remedy. Take no chance particularly with your children. ' Insist on having Dr. Shoop’s Cough Cure. Com pare carefully the Dr. Shoop pack age with others and see. No pois on maiks there! You can always be on the safe side by demanding Dr. Shoop’s Cough Cure. Simply refuse to accept any other.
