Selma, April 28.—(Special).—The annual encampment of the Second Infantry regi ment of the Alabama National Guard may be held in Selma, and whether held in Selma of not, the date for the encamp ment 'has been set for July 9. Colonel Charles R. Brlcken was In Selma today, having come on purpose to confer with Lieutenant Colonel Ernest Carter, and to see if the owners of the street railway and Elkdale park wanted the regimental encampment. Several years ago. when Colonel Brlcken was a major, the regiment encamped heret and Elk dale park proved to be an ideal place for the encampment. The tents can all be located in the shade, and there is an the regiment encamped here, and Elk dale being one of the best in the Btate. The drill ground is in front of the park, and is a splendid one. In fact, it has been pronounced by all military men who have seen It as ideal. Selmians will give a cordial welcome to the regiment if it !• decided to bring it here. Colonel Brick •n states that the encampment will be held at Selma or Montgomery, dependent upon circumstances. Interesting Trial. It Is not often that a great deal of in terest Is evidenced over a trial before a justice of the peace In a country pre cinct. There will be held Monday, how ever, a trial at Marion Junction, this county, in which justice will be meeted out to Dan Whitt and John Crawford, both negroes, that will attract much at tention. The two negroes are charged will selling whisky illegally, and one of them is also charged with carrying con cealed weapons. The weapon was found upon his person when 'he was arrested on the above charge, and there was also ’found two rounds of cartridges for the pistol. A large list of witnesses have been sum moned to the trial, and it is possible that others besides the two negroes arrested will be implicated in the matter before tlie case Is finished. The two negroes are in the Dallas county jail at this time, but will be carried to Marion Junction Monday. In Society’s Realm.

Nine ty men and women in every hundred have kidney trouble and don't know it, because It's only when the trouble reaches an ad vanced stage that it’s recognized as kid ney disease. We imagine we have dyspepsia, heart disease, nervous prostration and a hun dred and one ills, but nine times out of ten the real trouble is that the kidneys are so weak and diseased that they are utterly unable to carry the waste mat ters out of the body, and the uric acid ac cumulates in the system, and slowly but surely paves the way for Bright’s dis ease, diabetes, blood poisoning and a hor rible death in convulsions. Ask your doc tor if this is not good, solid, common sense. EXAMINE YOUR URINE It's the infallible test of kidney trouble. If your morning urine, on standing still 24 hours, contains a sediment. Is cloudy, or shows floating particles, your kidneys are seriously diseased and must be treat ed at once. There Is only one remedy that can be used with absolute safety and confidence, Warner's Safe Cure, put up for years at Rochester, N.

(let' Hicoo,Gfc "Exactly the Same” But Different, i 1 \ The vital question in clothes buying is this— Has the cloth been treated with the best tailoring methods ? For with the actual cost of the cloth but about one-third of the total cost of a suit, slip shod tailoring can rob the most worthy cloth fabric of its honor. So you see that seeing “exactly the same pattern” at another store does not mean “exactly” the. same tailoring or “exactly” the same suit as you’d find it at Porter-Neels. Schloss Bros. Suits, $15.00 20.00 25.00 30.00 35.00 Of course you may be a judge of ‘-all-wool,” or you can resort to a test that proves “all-wool,” but the only test of tailoring is in the wearing—and then you find out too late if a suit goes wrong. With Schloss Bros. Suits and Rogers-Peet Suits there’s never anything problematic. In the hands of these manufacturers a suit gets its full measure of good cloth fabric, and tailoring worthy of it. If they didn’t they wouldn’t be here. It’s just such care of every detail that Porter-Neel compares without discredit with men’s stores in cities of a million people.

A delicious luncheon was served at the conclusion of the games. Thursday afternoon Miss Genevieve Smith was hostess for the Young Ladies’ Card club, and a most enjoyable and charming affair it was.

RICHARDSON WILL NOT BE CANDIDATE FOR SENATOR Huntsville, April 28.—(Special.)—Repre sentative William Richardson, who lias j Just been renominated without opposition to represent the Eighth district In the Sixtieth Congress, hag set at rest the fre quent reports that ho will be a candidate for senatorial succession. In an inter view tills afternoon before leaving for Washington he said: "I am aware that my name has been mentioned in connection with the election or choice of alternate senators. I have given tiie matter much thought and con sideration, and I have received many flattering and highly appreciated assur ances from friends in my own district as well as throughout the state of their earnest support. I am free to say it is more than probable that if any actual vacancy existed at this time from Ala bama in the United States Senate I would become a candidate for the same, either in a primary election or before the gen eral assembly of the state. But. as you know, no such vacancy exists, and from the depths of my heart T hope It will not exist for many years to come. "Senators Morgan and Pettus, by uni versal consent, deserve the homage of re spect and affection so generously ac corded them throughout Alabama, as well as the whole country, for their splendid public services. I do not Intend nor do I desire to reflect on the views or the attitude of the distinguished gentlemen now seeking to fill expected vacancies to occur in future, nor am J criticising the edict of my party, yet for myself I can-; not reconcile a candidacy under the pro posed procedure for the selection of alter nate senators to be In harmony with th« natural and accepted proprieties between man and man in the ordinary walks <>f life. Hence, I shall not bo a candidate for senatorial succession. "I am especially and profoundly grate ful to the democrats of the Eighth con gressional district for their renewed ex pressions of confidence In my renomina flori for the Sixtieth Congress, and my chief aim and desire will he to serve anti promote the material Interests and wel fare of the people of my district, my state and my country to the best of my ability.” MISSION SOCIETY MEETS.
