Child's Gets Head Fast in a Chum.
There was a novel occurrence
near Stanton poBtoffice in Wilkes

hands an old fashioned churn, Mg
at the bottom and little at the
top. and while holding it upside
down, playfully placed it on the
head of a two-year-old boy.
The child turned his chin up
ward and the churn cjuld not be
removed. The large end of the
churn had to be sawed off and
then great difficulty was experi
enced in getting the first stave
knocked out without injuring the

Location Changes on April 22nd.
Asheville, April 14.—Prepara
tions are making at the internal
revenue office for the formal
transfer of the office to States
ville. Collector Brown has seltc
ted Monday, April 22nd, as the
probable date for moving the of.
fice and, if that day is finally
definitely decided upon, the sev
eral offices in the Feueral build
ing now occupied by Collector
Brown and his force of depu
ties and clerks will be vacated by
the middle of the week of April
22nd, It is probable that little
time will be lost in removing the
office. It is practically certain
that all the present employes of
the office, with the exception of
C. B. Moore, will accompany Col
lector Brown to Statesville. Mr.
Moore has been named as stamp
deputy for Asheville and he will
consequently stay. There is much
packing in progress in the revenue
department and these prepara
tions will continue until all re
cords are collected and made ready
for transfer.

I have tried many medicines but

Lady Teacher Tires of Life and Ends
her Existence With Carbolic Acid.
Morgauton, .ipril 11.—Thocom
muuity was very much shocked to
hear this morning that Miss Jessie
Ball, a member of the faculty of
the School for the Deaf, bad dis
appeared yesterday afternoon and,
after being searched for during
the uight by the principal of the
school and male teachers, no trace
>f her could be found. Searching
parties composed _of the citizens
then started in every direction
and about 11 o’clock this morn
ing her body was found about one
halt mile from the school on a
wooded hillside near the Southern
railway. A bottle labeled carbolic
acid was found by her side. Her
face was terribly burned from the
acid. The greatest mystery en
velops this death, there being not
the slightest clue to any reason
for suicide. Miss Ball taught her
classes as usual yesterday and
said she would not attend the
teachers’ meeting in the after
noon, as she was not well, and
started off for a walk.
She had destroyed all letters,
taken off her rings and watch and
lett her trunk unlocked, some
thing unusual for the teachers to
do when leaving the building.
She had been rather despondent
for several weeks and complained
of net feeling well, having lost 25
pounds in weight. It was hoped
that some note might be found,
but so far there is nothing to
throw any light upon her tragic
death. Miss Ball has been a
teacher in the oral department of
the school for the deaf since 1904
and was from Detroit, Mich.' Her
family have been notified, also
Professor Goodwin, who is in
Raleigh. The body has been en
balmed and will be shipped to
night to Detroit, Mich.—Special

Frightened to Death.
Thrown into a state of nervous
prostration by reading an account
published in a newspaper of her
supposed death, Mrs. Louisa
Duley, aged 49 years, expired last
night. Through an error the
death of a woman of the same
name was reported as having oc
curred in Mrs. Duley’s home aud
as she read the story she fell from
her chair to the floor. A physi
cian waB called but was unable to
learn the reason for Mrs. Duley’s
collapse. She bceame rational
later and after talking a few min
utes began to cry: “I am dead, I
am dead, I saw it in the paper,”
and died iu hysterics.—Evans

Kentucky’s Wooden Calf.
Before long the milkmaid will
be a thing of the past in Ken

wooden calf. The calf is a four
legged concern covered with the
hide of a real animal, with a hol
low stomach lined with zinc. The
mouth is lined with rubl er and
the jaws work on hinges. The
worst kickers among the cows
stand still and submit te being
milked by this mechanism, which
is operated by a gasoline engine.
The calf vigorously switches its
tail during the process.—Ex.

The largely increased demand for Sun Cured
tobacco, created and sustained by the distinctive
quality of the original Reynolds’ Sun Cured tobacco, —
has encouraged other manufacturers to place on the
market imitation brands and tags which are made to
look so near like the genuine Reynolds' Sun Cured
that unsuspecting chewers and dealers receive the
imitations under the belief that they are getting the
genuine Reynolds' Sun Cured tobacco.
Look close and see that the letters on the tag
spell R-e-y-n-o'-l-d-s’ Sun Cured, and you cannot
I be deceived in getting what you ask for and want,
—the best value for your money that can be produced
from the genuine Sun Cured tobacco, grown where
the best sun-cured tobacco grows.
and see that you get the original and genuine Sun
Cured tobacco.
It’s like you formerly got, before Reynolds’
Sun Cured was offered to the trade, costing from
60c to $1.00 per pound, and is sold at 50c per
pound in 5c cuts, strictly 10 and 15 cent plugs.

I have found a tried and tested cure for Rheu- j f
mat ism! Not a remedy that will straighten the ; V
distorted limbs of chronic cripples, nor turn bony I ft
growths back to flesh again. That is impossible. 11
But I can now surely kill the pains and pangs of f
this deplorable disease. | \c
In Germany—with a Chemist in the City of I ft
Darmstadt—I found the last ingredient .with ;
which Dr. Shoop’s Rheumatic Remedy was made I f
a perfected, dependable prescription. Without \z
that last ingredient, I successfully treated-many, I ft
many cases of Rheumatism; but now, at la6t, it uni- j
formly cures all curable cases of this* heretofore f
much dreaded disease. Those sand-like granular t
wastes, found in Rheumatic Blood, seem to dissolve j r
and pass away under the action of this remedy as
freely as does sugar when added to pure water. 1
And then, when dissolved, these poisonous wastes
freely pass from the system, and the cause of r
Rheumatism is gone forever. There is now no f
real need—no actual excuse to suffer longer with
out help. We sell, and in confidence recommend
