The Progressive Farmer, 1 year, 1.00 All 3 for a year each, only $1.50 Entered as second-class matter January |9th, 1905, at the post office at Salisbury, N. C., under the act of Congress of March 3rd, 1879. • __ Salisbury, N.C. Feb. 3rd, ’15 “A poultry olub girl.” That sounds good. Some people seem to thii k graft is alright so long as they are the beneficiaries thereof. Most people ave of the opinion that the war in Europe will last until it is over. North Carolina ib iwid to have the handsomest Governor’s man sion in the United States. Penn sylvania oomes next. A bill to make the minimum sentence of bank deafulters ten years, was voted down by the Sen ate. That was a specimen of namby-pambyism. Yes, Salisbury is the only place intheoonntry where a lot of puie. ly private clubs are cared for by the county under the non de plume of a community center. Those who refuse to see the dif ference between the Catholic reli gion and political Romanism are like the fellow who pays no atten tion to the directing signs at the fork of the roads. Mr. Ex-P. Taft is quite ready with suggestions as to the conduct of national affairs recently. Will Mr. Taft have to be thrown down j the stairs three times before he^ Sill realize that the people do not j ant his advice. Perhaps he iej oonsoienoe stricken j The unmitigated gall of the P K. ii exemplified in the fact that it givei notice that it will soon provide ralea and regulations for the oontrol of the people’s prop erty, the old coart hoase. Did the people eleot them for this pur pose or the ooanty commissioner!? We see one W. H. Taft thinks the one-term idea for our presi dents is a good one. Of oourse we wonld not dare to whisper where Mr. Taft might hear it, bat just between as, it seems that thiB is a question the people have p oven their ability to settle satis factory for themselves. There are something like 2,200 members of the Junior Order United American Mechanics in Rowan County, all tax payers and voters who are doing a great work fostering education, and patriotism morality, yet they get no room in the old oourt house. Why should selfseekers be given the prefer ence. The Pestiferous Klub, after hav ing the merchants of the town waste their substance and time trying to prove to the denizens of London that Salisbury’s the place, and in one instance took money from mere boys and gave it to an interloper and fraud, has the 'e merity to say it will continue to do business at the same old stand and, we suppose in the same old way. Our people are now reaping the reward of their folly. I was taken with a severe headache and cold, which finally brought on constipa tion and bowel trouble. Physics of all kinds were used, and we were obliged 1 to resort to the fountain i "yringe for help. I could dnnk castor oil like water, but it did no good. Salts were of no use. The doc tors were puzzled. After using three bottles of Peruna i consider myself entirely well. Mr. John B.

Vanceboro, Maine, Feb. 2 —An other international problem inoi dent to the war thrust upon the United States today by the aotion of Werner Van Horn, who operat ing on the Canadian side of tn* border dynamited the railway bridge over the St. Croix river and tben escaped into Maine.

WHEN THE 1ID What Then?—The Family Suf fers, the Poor Mothers Suf fer—Mrs. Becker Meets This Distressing Situation. Collinsville, 111. —“I suffered from a nervous break-down and terrible head aches, and was tired all over, totally worn out and too discouraged to enjoy life, but as I had four in family and sometimes eight or nine boarders, I kept on working despite my suffering. “ I saw Vinol advertised and decided to try it, and within two weeks I noticed a decided improvement in my condition and now I am a well woman. ’ ’ —Mrs. Ana Becker, Collinsville, 111. There are hundreds of nervous, run down, overworked women in this vicinity who are hardly able to drag around and who we are sure would be wonderfully benefited by Vinol as Mrs. Becker was. The reason Vinol is so successful in building up health and strength in such cases is because it combines the medici nal tissue building and curative elements of cod’s livers together with the blood making, strengthening properties of tonic iron. We ask every weak, ner vous, run-down man or woman in this vicinity to try a bottle of Vinol on our guarantee to return their money if it fails to benefit. Smith’s Drug Co., Salisbury, N. C.
