Joseph Addison, a Prince Qoorgo'a

. on the Maryland highway commissioner
by the remarks of Oliver Metcerott, or
this city, and others who urged the
building of. the highway over the old
stage route Instead of tho Sheriff road
Addison pointed out how the State
could save thousands of dollars In the

prosperous t farmer, to give enough
gravel to build llfteen miles of the high
way. Mr. Metzerott was Impressed with the
appeal of Peter Campbell, president of

way commissioner that Maryland has
the opportunity to show Congress how
judiciously sho can spend Federal money
. for roads, and that sho can do it by
' selecting the old stage route.

back were awful. I was extremely
nervous, and couldn't sleep, and was
seldom free from headathet. I felt
tired all the time, and was easily Irri
tated and worried I lost a great deal
of flroh, and finally got so weak and
run 'down I could hardly drug myself
around. All the medicine I took seemed

perfectly. Honestly, I wouldn't take all
the money In Washington for the good

night. I don't know what It lo to havo
the headache now. All the tired, bad
feelings have left me. I can now do
my housework with a pleasure. Dreco
has done me1 so much good. I can hardly
keep back the tears of gratitude, and I
