Had the people of the South or

i.The lyceum attraction given in
the opera house on Moncjay ?yjibiq0
delighted everybody .--fmra -the
humblest, to thc greatest. Thc music
was very attractive and beaut i fal.
Tho students themselves perhaps
charmed most, and the pictures of
tho Hawaiian islands were the best
of the kind ever seen in our town.
Altogether, it was the most enjoy

''Love Story Number."
The February number of one of
the leading magazines which is fresh

contemplates presenting each of thc
following young gentlemen with a
copy: Dr. Corley, Leslie Kernaghan,
Allen Samuel, Henry Mcdlock, Joe
Holland, and Vivian Mims with a

two copies might find congenial
companionship among the members
of The Advertiser's force.

be amused by a special committee.
There is no objection to their com

Often The Kidneys fire,
Weakened by Over-Work.
Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood,
Weak and unhealthy kidneys are re
sponsible for much sicknessaudsuffering,
therefore, if kidney
trouble is permitted to
continue, serious re
sults are most likely
io follow. Your other
organs may need at
tention, but your kid
ne}'s most, because
they do most and
should have attention
first. Therefore, when
your kidneys are weak or out of order,
you can understand how quickly your en
tire body is affected and how ever)' organ
seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or " feel badly," begin
taking the great kidney remedy, Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root. A trial will con
vince you of its great merit.
The mild and immediate effect of
Swamp-Root, the great kidney and
bladder remedy, is soon realized. It
stands the highest because its remarkable
health restoring properties have been
proven in thousands of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best.
Sold by druggists in
fifty-cent and one-dol
lar sizes. You may
have a sample bottle
by mail free, also a
pamphlet telling yon HMM o t swamp-Hoot,
how to find out if you have kidney or
bladder trouble. Mention this paper
when writing to Dr. Kilmer & Co.,

take, but remember the name, Swamp
Root, and don't let a dealer sell you
something in place of Swamp-Root-if
you do you will be disappointed.
