Entered as second-class matter Jan. 19th. 1S05, at the post office at Salis bury, N. 0., under the act of Congress of March8rd, 1876. Salisbury, May 21st, 1913. Saturday, June 14th, is known v as flag day and The American Flag Association with head offices in New York city, is making an effort to have the day fittingly observed throughout the nation. This is very commendable and we hope to see the day become one of great popularity. Let every one who has an American flag make an effort to display it on this date. The Southern Kailway has just issued a very handsome sixty-four page pamphlet relative to the points on its lines in Western North Carolina. It is beautifully lllustated and printed and >s of maoh interest to tonrists. The first point mentioned is Salisbury, then follows a brief statement of every stop between here and Ashe vill». The Watchman is in debted to R. H. DeButts, D. P. A., Charlotte, N. C., for a copy. The Watchman is very glad to note that Senator Overman has re introduced his immigration bill and certainly hopes to see it, if not something stronger, become a law. Our nation has always been exceedingly generous to all na tions, worthy and unworthy alike, so much so that this generosity has become a fait, and the time for proper restriction has arrived. We have now about all the un desirables that we can hope to as* simulate for years to come. The Landmark has always con tended Safe a judge should be on hand to^pei court at the regular hour, guless, providently hinder ed ; that hefshould hot be guilty of an offence which he would no* tolerate in witnesses and jurors— and that opinion is not ohanged 1 y the alleged tardineis of Judge Long. It can say with truth, however, that Judge Long is prob ably the most industrious worker on the bench with the possible ex oeptiou of Judge Whedbee; and inasmuch as he finished the busi ness of each week’s term of Rowau court by the middle of the week he may not have deemed in uec cessary to be in a hurry to open court on time. This is not said as an apology for him but simply to state the facts. The Watch man's intimation that the Land mark criticises only at long range is contrary to the faots, as that paper well knows.—Statei ville Landmark. The Watchman did not inti mate that Judge Long is habitual ly indolent or oareless of hii duties. It may be possible he was providentially prevented frcm catching the 6:45 morning train in otateBville, josfc as it is possible the same mysterious power pre vented the unmerous judges the Landmark has so persistently and justly critioised. It is impossible to believe that Judge Long would have allowed his court to be held up a half day by any one. The Rowan Superior oourts have be come very small affairs since the eitablishmont of the County Court, so we will not attempt a comparison of the speed possible by various judges. The Watchman thoroughly un derstands that a newspaper gen erally makes an enemy whenever it criticises any one, no matter how j.ist the cause, but as it is un av ar»of Statesville’s judge having any privileges not enjoyed by oth ers and as The Landmark has quite frequently criticized judges of other places, this paper did not wa it our neighbor to fail us at such an important though delicate juncture. However, like many another, The Landmark gees eff half-cocked occasionally. Potdt06 Slips—Ws would like to fig-, ure with good farmers whoI would like to grow sweet potatoes.

BRONCHITIS SUFFERER Takes Druggist’s Advice With Splendid Result. If anyone should know the worth, of a medicine, it is the retail druggist who sells it over hia counter every day in the week, and is in a position to know what remedy gives the best satisfaction. Mrs. Frank H. Uline, of West Sand. Lake, N. Y., says: “For a number of years I was a great sufferer from bronchitis. Last July I had an attack which was more severe than any, and my friends thought I could not recover from it Then I was advised by my druggist to try Vinol, which I did, with wonderful results. My cough, has left.n:e; I have gained in weight and appetite, and I am as strong aa ever I was. I advise all who have bronchitis, chronic coughs, or who are run down to try Vinol.” It is the combined action of the medicinal curative elements of the cod’s liver, without the greasy oil, aided by the blood-making and strength-creating properties of tonic iron that makes Vinol so efficient. Remember, we guarantee Vinol to do just what we say — we pay back your money if it does not P. S. Stop scratching, our Saxo Salve stops itching.

Owing to the grand jury's ac'ion id regard to the uew c:urt house now under construction here, Chairman Trott has de.ided to g-t the very heBt advice pr curabl before taking steps to hold up the work or to withhold payments to the contractors With this idea in view he wrote to Senator Over mau to secure a government ex port, if possible, aud the Senator was fortunate in beiDg able to do so. Beside the correspondence be tween Senator Overman aud Mr. Trott the latter has received a let ter informing him that Geo. O Von Nerta, a government expert and the man who made the final examination of the big post office building in Atlaut-i, will arriv/e Friday and is expected to make a thorough and impartial examina tion and report accordingly and, upon this report the commiBsioi - ers will depend largely as to their future action. Further comment is not necessary until the report is made. The following communication took place between Senator Ovtr man aud Mr, Trctt: Salisbury, N. C., May 14, 1913. H jn. Lee S. Overman, U S, Sen ate, Washington, D. C. My Dear Senater: At the last term or the Supe rior Court cf Rowau County the grand jury, after aujnvestigation, reported that the new court house in course of construction was im properly built and improper bal'd ing stone and material was being used. The court house iB still iu the hands of the confactors, The King Lumber Company, and als< iu the hauds of A. Ten' Eyck Brjwr, architect. The county has a $50,OCO bond from the build ing cofnpany for the faithful exe cution of the coutract, and of course we, as commissioners, will not receive the building until it is according to the plans, specifica tions and contract. The construction of this build ing is in the hauds of the archi* tect and we are required to pay over a percentage as he directs us to do. However, as the grandjury has called our attention to the matter we desire to be fully ac quainted with the true state of facts iu order, if we see proper to do so, we will have some grounds to justify the refusal to pay fur ther vouohers. io this end I am writing you to be good enough to s^nd us a gov irument expert in granite, brick and construction work. If possi ble we would like to have him at once to make a full, careful and Complete examination of our new oourt house building. We further request that yon send us a mau who is in no way connected with any granite, brick or other material firm, person oi ooporatiou so that we can get at the exact situation. In other words send us a mau who is em ployed by the G verim-ent as a;i expert on materials and construc tion . We, as the Board of Commis sioners and as citizens of Rowan an County, are deBirous of doing our duty and secure for our c juu ty the very best oourt house pos sible, and we want the material and ooustructnu to he exactly ac cording to the ooutract we found when we came in as commission ers. We will pay the expenses of tho Government expert if we can secure him. We trust you can do this for us, Senator, as we believe it is neces sary and will greatly assist us in getting a court house according to contract. With kind regards', I am, Very truly yours, (Signed) H. C.Trott, Chairman. Board Co. Commis U S. Senate, Washington, D. C. May 17, 1913 Mr. H. C. Trott, Chairman, Board Co. Commis Salisbury, N. 0. My Dear Sir: I am in receipt of your esteem ed favor of the 14th instant in which y u rtq n st. me to get an expert in granite, brick aud con struction work to Salisbury to make a full, careful aud complete examination of the new court house building in Rowan County which is uow in process of erec tion. I have taken the matter up with the supervising Architect, Treasury Department, and ho promises to send to Salisbury on Thursday next one of the beBt. ex perts he has, provided you will pay his expenses. He wrii pvob ably arrive in Salisbury on Thurs day morning and spend two days, and will be glad to ixamiue the building and make an impartial report. I am glad to serve you in this matter.

Women Are Constantly Being Restored to Health by Lydia E. Pinkham s Vegetable Compound. “Worth mountains of gold,” says one woman. Another says, “ I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham s Vegetable Compound for all the other medicines for women in the world.” Still another writes. “ I should like to have the merits of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound thrown on the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women could read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills.” We could, till a newspaper ten times the size of this with such quo tations taken from the letters we have received from grateful women whose health has been restored and suffering banished by Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound. .... Why has Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound accomplished such a universal success? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on doing its glorious work among the sick women of the world for more than 30 years ? Simply and surely because of its sterling worth. The reason no other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim ply because there is no other medicine so good for women’s ills. Here are two letters that just came to the writer’s desk—only two of thousands, but both tell a comforting story to every suffering wo man who will read them—and be guided by them. FROM MRS. D. H. BROWN. Iola, Kansas.—“During theChange of Life I was sick for two years. Be fore I took your medicine I could not bear the weight of my clothes and was bloated very badly. I doc tored with three doctors but they did me no good. They said nature must have its way. My sister ad vised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and I purchased a bottle. Before it was gone the bloating left me and I was not so sore. I continued taking it until I had taken 12 bottles. Now I am stronger than 1 have been for years and can do all my work, even the washing. Your medicine is. worth its weight in gold. I cannot praise it enough. If more women would take your medicine there wrould be more healthy women. You may use this letter for the good of others.”— Mrs. D. H. Brown, 809 North Walnut Tr»ln Tfan MRS. WILLIAMS SAYS: Elkhart, Ind. —“I suffered for 14 years from organic inflammation, fe male weakness, pain and irregulari ties. The pains in my sides were increased by walking or standing on my feet and I had such awful bearing down feelings, was depressed in spirits and became thin and pale with dull, heavy eyes. I had six doctors from whom I received only temporary relief. I decided to give Lydia E. Pinlcham’s Vegetable Com- \ pound a fair trial and also the Sani tive Wash. I have now used the remedies for four months and cannot express my thanks for what they have done forme.—Mrs. Sadie Wil liams,455 James Street, Elkhart, Indiana. fa^B^Write to LYDIA E.
