James Davis lanes a non wnn a bandit.
James M. Davis, son of O. D.
Davis, of this city, now book
keeper for the First Natioual
Bank of Denver, Colorado, and
who assists private parti a with
their bookkeeping of evenings,
had quite a round with a Denver
bandit Saturday night the 20th.
The bandi1 entered an open door
in the rear of J, B . Dounovan’s
drug store and with drawn revol
ver called upon Messrs. Donn.i
vau and Davis to “shell out.”
They “came across” with 75 cents
and $1 09 respectively, but this
was not a “starter” for the des
perado, so he sprang upon Mr.
Davis who managed to hold his
revolver and prevent its use. Dur
ing this melee Donnovan scurried
about and got a revolver and
came to Davis’s assistance. The
bandit however fired once, the
bullet entering Mr. Davis’s hand,
but not materially injuring it.
Donnovan finally got into a po
sition to fire without injuring
Mr. Davis so he stuck a hot, bul
let in the bandit’s ribs and
brought the scuffle to a c! mo. Thf
bandit’s gr p loosened as hf
groaned ‘ You’ve got me ” A
jcall was sent in for ati ambulancf
and the man died en route to thf
hospital. Mr. Davis probablj

Moore yesterday. "Hundreds of

quently town and oitv people have
gone out and shared in the pleas

condition of farm life needs to be

worth mountains

never forget to tell

restoration to health means so much
to me that for the sake of other suffer

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.

Bird With Human Face
Monday a special was sent to
The Charlotte Observer from
Mooresvilie which tells of a pe
culiar bird captured in the Blaok
Creek neighborhood ‘[of Mt. 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. His “ Favorite Prescription” hao cured
hundred:, of thousands, some of them the worst of cases.
It is the only medicine of its kind that is the product of a regularly graduated
physician. The only one good enough that its makers dare to print its every
ingredient on its outside wrapper. There’s no secrecy. It will bear examina
tion. No alcohol and no habit-forming drugs are found in it. Some unscrup
ulous medicine dealers may offer you a substitute. Don’t take it. Don’t trifle
with your health. Write to World’s Dispensary Medical Association, Dr. R.
V. Pierce, President, Ruffalo, N. Y.,—take the advice received and be well.
