"The social features of the Far mers’ Uuion is in evidence most in the summer season,” said C 0, Moore yesterday. "Hundreds of Farmers’ Union picnics have al ready been held in different sec tions of the State and crowds have been in attendance number ing from 300 to 5,000 people. Fre quently town and oitv people have gone out and shared in the pleas ure of these social gatherings. A pars of the time is consumed with speech-making on topics of inter est to farmers and their organiza tion and the other part in ming ling together oil the grounds in social conversation. The social condition of farm life needs to be greatly improved and the union is a force tnatis bringing about a closer relationship between neigh bors and is developing better ru ral life conditions. With the constant association of farmers iD their local unions comes a discus sion of community interests and plans are evolved iur better rural schools, tbs establishment of ru ral telephone service, the irnpor t.ftlinn r.f hnt,teT live St-CCk into the community through neighborhood oo-operation. “President Alexander and I have been devoting our full time in the lecture field since the mid dle of July and the work will keep us busy until the last of Septem ber. We are ably assisted in this work by A. C. Shuford of Cataw ba, Dr. J. M. Templeton of Wake, P. P. W. Plyler of Union, and others. With more than sixty counties in the organization, it takes our leoture force to supply the domaud at this season. ‘ Our membership in North Carolina appreciates the coming of the national convention to Charlotte and visiting members are expected in great numbers by Tuesday of next week. President Barrett seldom makes an address to the public. His ability devel ops most as a presiding officer, and there will not be a dull mo ment in the executive meetings from the time he raises his gaval Tuesday until the close of the ses sions. “With the officers of the nation al organization will come promi nent men from the various St-ateB who have been olosely identified with the Farmers’ Union for years before this organization waB planted in North Carolina—men who bavo followed it through its early struggles and know its weak points and its strong points, who knows of its defeats and its vic tories and the difficulties that must be met and overcome. The convention that assembles in Charlotte Tuesday will be the most representative body of Amer ican farmers that has ever met on North Carolina soil.”—Charlotte Observer. WORTH MOUNTAINS OFJ0LD During Change of Life, says Mrs. Chas. Barclay Granite ville, Vt. — “I was passing through the Changed' Life andsuffereb from nervousness and other annoyin; symptoms, and 1 can truly say tliat Lydia E.Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound has proved worth mountains of gold to me, as it restored my health and strength. I never forget to tell my friends what LydiaE. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound lias done for me during this trying period. Complete restoration to health means so much to me that for the sake of other suffer ing women I am willing to make my trouble public so you may publish this letter.”—Mrs. Ciias. Barclay, R.F.D.,Graniteville, Vt. No other medicine for woman’s ills has received such wide-spread and un qualified endorsement. No other med icine we know of has such a record of cures of female ills as has Lydia E. Finkham’s Vegetable Compound. For more than 30 years it has been curing female complaints such as inflammation, ulceration, local weak nesses, fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic pains, backache, indigestion and nervous prostration, and it is unequalled for carrying women safely through the period of change of life. It costs but little to try Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound, and, asMrs.Barclaysays.it is “worth moun tains of gold ” to suffering women. EXECUTOR s NUIICE.

Ulla Township, this county. It says : Mooresvilie, Aug. 29.—N. P. Plummer, a prosperous farmer of Mount Ulla, was in the city today exhibiting a strange freak in the shape of a bird with a human face. It was evidently of the owl species, but unlike any that has ever been captured in these parts. For several years along the back creek bottoms in this neighbor hood, Mr. Plummer Bays, people working in the fields were often startled by a cry like a human voice, giving signals of distress, but upon investigation nothing could be found. The bird was captured last Saturday, having been discovered by Mr. Plummer while crying like an infant, he having slipped upon it unawares. The bird would not eat, and while exhibiting the fowl on the streets, the human-like thing died in his arms, crying. ‘ Go-go.” Its voice was clear and it oould talk pUiner than the ordinary parrot.

Welcome Words to Women Women who suffer with disorders peculiar to their sex should write to Dr. Pierce and receive free the advice of a physician of over 40 years’ experience —a skilled and successful specialist in the diseases of women. Every letter of this sort has the most careful consideration and is regarded as sacredly confidential. Many sensitively modest women write fully to Dr. Pierce what they would shrink from telling to their local physician. The local physician is pretty sure to say that he cannot do anything without “an examination.” Dr. Pierce holds that these distasteful examinations are generally need less, and that no woman, except in rare cases, should submit tc t.‘ N Dr. Pierce’s treatment will cure you right in the privacy oil your on n home.
