Teat's Rhidge. Some months since the
job 'or erecting a new bridge over the
river some where uear the old location,
known a Teat's Bridga, was awarded to
Wm. D.uik, for $1.93 On Friday lal
be finished the work, and Siiyi he Is pre
pared to turn the biido ovc-r to tb
proper authorit es. Y
The task of opening the road on each
idde ol the river remains with the neigh
bors, ho ngreed to do that part, in order
to secure the biiuge at the present poitit.
The County Commissioners s;n uid imme
diately take charge of the matti r, appoint
an overseer, and have the route placed In
good order.
The erection of this bridge will i.ot only
prove of great btnufit to the people of
that section of the county, but will also be
the means of drawiug a large amount of
busiuess to Tarboro. '

Ayer's Cathartic Pills,1
For the relief
and cure of all
derangements la
the stomorli, liver, -and
bowels. Ttiejr
are a mild aperi
ent, and nn ex
cellent purpativo.
Iteing purely veg
etable, they con
tain no lnercurv
or mineral what
ever. -Much seri
ous sickness and
suffering is prevented by their timely use; anl
every family should have thein on hand further
protection and relief, w hen required. Lon ex
perience has proved them to lie the safest, miv
c.st, and lie-t of all the I'M with which llio
market abounds. Jiy their occasional use, tho
blood is purillcd, the'cori-uptious of the system
expelled, obstructions removed, ami the wholo
machinery of life restored to its healthy activ
ity. Internal organs which become clojr-ieiV
and sluggish are cleansed by Ayer'n
aud stimulated into action, 't hus m' ipient dis
ease is changed into health, the value of whicii
change, when reckoned on the vast multitude.?
who enjoy it, can hardlv be computed. Their
sugar-coating makes lliem pleasant to tube,
and preserves their' virtues unimpaired for any
length of time, so that they are ever fresh, and
perfectly reliable. Although searching, they
are mild,' and operatfe without disturbance to
the constitution, or diet, or occupation.
Full directions are given on the wrapper to
each box, how to use them as a Family Physic-,
and for the following complaints, which the?Ci
l'HU rapidlv cure : - '
For Jyp-iMl or IiiH-estion, tit.
lnmnrmi, adinsrnor and JLomt of .4p
tJte, they should be taken moderately to stinui.
late the stomach, and restore its healthy tone
and action.
For A.iver Complaint and Its various
symptoms, Biliou Heartache, Sick
l'leariache, Jaunillce or fin-en M-u-nr,
Hiliou :o!ic and lliliou IVven,
they should be judiciously taken for each cae,
to correct the diseased action or remove tho
ebptruetions which cause" it."
For Ireit"r.r or Uiurrhwu, but one
mild loe is generally required.
For nbramatitni. (out, CrTel,Ial
nitntion nt tlie Heart, JaiM tn (ho
Hide, Plark, and Coin, they should be con-
tinnouslv taken, as reipiired, to clunge the H-
eased action of the system. Willi such change
those complaints disappear.
ForUraimr and Iroilcal iwellliar.
thev should he taken in'largc and lrequcnt ifosea
to produce the effect Qf a drastic purge.
For Juppreion, a large dos-e should hfi
taken, as it produces tlie desired effect by sym
P 'is' a Dinner Pill . take otic or two nils to
promote digestion, and relieve the stomach. .
An occasional dose stimulates the stomach
and bowels, restores the appetite, and invigoi
ates the system. Hence it is orten advnnta
genus where no serious derangement exists;
One who feels tolerably well, often finds that
a dose of these fills makes him feel decidedly
better, from their cleansing and renovating"
effect on the digestive apparatus.
