crime would increase From day
to day the actual experience has
shown that all these predictions
are being shown to have had no
foundation The latest comes
from the State of Wilkes. The
Wilkesboro Chronical says:
“Along just before the prohibi

told in pathetic, tearfull tones
that if prohibition carried the or

I owns Need Advertising.
Towns no Ibbs than business
firms need to advertise. A town
may not fail quite so quickly as
a private enterprise from lack of
advertising, but the death is just,
as certain in tlie long urn. A town
n eds to have outsiders know its
advantages, its actual conditions
as to industries, or opportunities
for business, cost of living, etc.
Many an excellent town suffers
from the fact that its advantages
are not widly known, just as many
a worthy c mmodity suffers tie
cause it has not been advertised.
The newspapers are undoubted
ly one of the greatest means of
advertising their town. “By
their newspapers men shall know
them’1 is the semibibical phrase
that applies to towns.
The western real estate t wn
can teach the average eastern city
many things on the subject of ad
vertisement. There is a case of
advertisement or die completely,
and they rather prefer to adver
tise. The result is that people are
interested and money is invested
in the towns
It is the same old fact that nev
er changes—namely, that adver
tising is necessary and that the
more a thing is advertised up to a
certain very high limit the great
er the net returns will be. 1' ,wus
are no exception to the general
rule,—Ridgway, (Pa.) Advocate.

Never, positively never poison your lungs. If you
cough—even from a simple cold only—you should
always heal, soothe, ami ease the irritated bron
chial tubes. Don't blindly suppress it with a
stupefying poison. It’s strange how some things
finally come about. For twenty years Dr. Shoop
has constantly wanted people not to take cough
mixtures or prescriptions containing Opium,
Chloroform, or similar poisons. And now—a little
late though—Congress says "Put it on the label.
If poisons are in your Cough Mixture.” Good!
Very good 11 Hereafter for thisveryreasonmothers,
and others, 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, but it
is said to be by those that know it best, a truly r»
markable cough remedy. Take no chance then,
particularly with your children. Insist on having
Dr. Shoop’s Cough Cure. Compare carefully the
Dr. Shoop package with others and note the
difference. No poison marks there I You can
