GOLD DOLLARS AT FIFTY CLNTS Will Be a Purchase of Lots aA Before the Grand Auction Sale to Be Held Later in the Month. Watch for Dades ~ Possibly You Say, Why Buy Now ? Our answer is—because the time is opportune to buy lower NOW, and on easier terms than an auction sale will afford you. Because, one thousand or more people that attend the sale will see being erected the first unit of buildings of what will be the largest Cement Plant in the world, producing 2000 or more barrels of high grade Portland Cement a day, and employing not less than 600 men. Thris alone insures a rapid rise in the price of lots—and soon. Because That same thousand or more people will have told and SHOWN to* them that other minerals lay in the surrounding hills in abundance, and that OTHER INDUSTRIES are coming. The thousand or more people will also be SHOWN the most beautiful and awe-inspiring locations for suburban homes tributary to Greater Birmingham, with excellent train service via the Southern or Central R. R., with the A- B- & A. a SURE third. Such progress makes an investment NOW better than Gold Dollars at Fifty Cents. Because You have seen such towns as Bessemer, Ensley and others spring into cities right under your very nose without taking advantage of the first opportunity that was offered to secure lots cheap, and after waking up, found them beyond your reach. The same opportunity exists now at “Leeds’’ that did at the places mentioned above ten years ago, and one year from today we will be selling lots at “Leeds" way above the prices we now ask, and not the choice ones, by a long shot The property is in our hands—your delay will be our gain.

Atlanta, May 19.—Vice President and Mrs. Charles W. Fairbanks on their re turn from Birmingham to Washington spent twelve strenuous hours in the hands of their Atlanta friends today. From noon till midnight but little time was allowed them to escape from a round of enter tainment tendered by personal and of ficial friends. Accompanied by Mrs. Charles H. Ackert, a close personal friend of Mrs. Fairbanks, the party arrived a few minutes after noon. To greet them were Col. Robert J. Lowery, an intimate friend of the Vice President and his host during ids Atlanta visit, and Maj. E. W. Halford; also Major Waltz and Capt. C. C. Clarke, as military aides, de tailed to attend the distinguished guests of the day. The programme of enter tainment Included a luncheon to the Vice President tendered by Colonel Lowery at the Capitol City club, where a dozen guests were invited to meet him; fol lowing this reception at the Ohio club. An automobile drive ending at Ft. Mc Pherson. where the Vice Presidential salute of nineteen guns was fired and a | review of ttie troops at the post and a : reception of the officers were tendered by Col. John T.

Concluding this event, where about fifty leading citizens of Atlanta and Georgia gathered to welcome the Vice President i Informally, several addresses were deliv ered. including the principal one by John Temple Graves. Vice President Fairbanks replied at some length. In thanking the people of Atlanta for their cordial welcome. Vice President ! Fairbanks said there was something In j the hospitality in the south which is un surpassed anywhere. He expressed won der at the transformation that had oc curred in the city since ids last visit I twenty years ago. “There is an evidence of growth,” he said, “of which the At lanta T first saw was merely a prophesy. She has become one of the most import ant gateways between the north and the south. She holds a position of exceptional strategy In the world of commerce and trade. That she will prove worthy of her opportunity, her past and her pres ent are complete assurances." The struggle of two score years ago were spoken of by the Vice President and he praised the people for the prompt resumption of peace and obliteration of the scars of war and said: We Are Fellow Citizens. “We realize that we are fellow citizens of the great republic, undivided in pur pose and one In our devotion to tin* same flag. We are proud of our country, proud of its industrial strength, proud of its splendid citizenship: all eager to promote its high destiny. While we are conscious of its material strength and while we take pride in It we value more than all else the intelligence the high morality and the high patriotism of our country men. We are the joint heroism and the valor of our fathers. We respect those who fought where conscience led. There never lias been produced braver men than the Americans, who opposed each other on the historic fields of the south." Speaking of the ready response of the north and south to tlie* call of arms in the Spanlsh-Anierlean contest he said: “The south is entitled to great honor for her part in that national exigency. I shall never forget an evening 1 spent with William McKinley, a name which is a priceless heritage to us all. He loved the south and the south loved him. He , was then preparing to meet the grave contest which was near at hand. (Jen. j Joe Wheeler came to tender Ills sword to his country's cause. He was cordially j received by the chief executive, who | said: 'So you are to go to war. General ( Would Fight for Flag. Wheeler? •Yes,’ replied the General with j great feeling. I followed my conscience and one*- fought against the Hag. Mr. i President, and 1 want a chance to fight for it before I die.’ This was a brave and j patriotic utterance. It voiced the sent!- j ment which filled the heart of every true soldier who served In the southern army more than a generation ago. General Wheeler sleeps well at Arlington among the nation's heroic dead, his memory revered by every lover of American lib erty." As an illustration of our national unity and the spirit of good neighborship which everywhere prevails, he referred to the l catastrophe at San Francisco. "Waste and want were on every hand." he said, "hut , before the earthquake and fire had com pleted their horrible work and before the terror-striekens were aware of the mag nitude of the disaster their countrymen everywhere, north and south, were pour ing into San Francisco food, clothing, medicine and money to sustain them in their extremity. “The appalling calamity has awakened us to a fresh realization that we are after all a family of eighty millions, hound together in Indissoluble bonds of national fellowship We mav at times differ from each other with respect to governmental politics, but when the supreme moment come our community asserts itself and our affections for each other flames forth to the admiration of the world." The Vice Presidential party left for Washington at midnight. Governor Offers Reward. Jackson. Miss., May 19.—(Special).—Gov ernor Varda man was In Memphis today when advised of the escape of J. E.

May 19.—(Special.)—The train crew of the Louisville and Nashville rail road, running between Myrtlewood, in Marengo county, and this city, ieported today that a perceptible earthquake shock was felt In Myrtlewood this morning about 4 o'clock. The shock is said to have lasted for what seemed a half minute, and the houses rocked to such an extent that many ran out into tlieir yards In their night clothes. Myrtlewood is located upon a hillside, and it is argued that if an earthquake shock really struck that sec tion it would be felt at such a point more than any other. So far as known no re ports have been received of the shock having been felt anywhere else in the neighborhood. Negro Is Killed.

A vacancy lias been declared in the of fice of .Justice of the Peace of City Pre cinct No. 3(1, held by Mr. Moody H. May. This vacancy was brought about by a writ of lunacy being tried by a jury today brought by J. It. Holbrook, a nephew of Mr. May. The jury brought In a verdict that the- Unfortunate man was of unsound mind ;ind the probate judge will appoint a guardian for him. Mr. Alov is one of the oiliest and most highly esioeimd citizens of Dallas county. He has held the office of justice of the peace for about thirty years. To his in genuity and bravery, perhaps, more than any one man. was due the reclamation of Dallas county fi'om the carpet-bagger and scallawag's misrule. Ho was at the head of wliat was known as "The Lightning Committee.” and worked ceaselessly to wards i lie accomplishment of the result achieved. For several years he has been a sufferer from lot Qmotor ataxia, and a few weeks ago wa« found lying alongside a railroad track with a severe wound In tlie head, ■Ills arm broken and other bruises. It is supposed that while walking along the track n train came along and he was either knocked or fell. He has never recov ered from the injuries sufficient to recog nize anyone, although he seems physically wed. At present there are two applicants for the vacancy. Paul Carson, who repre sented this county in the legislature in (899. and Walter R. Shafer, who held n similar position in 1903. Both will have strong petitions before the governor, and it is likely that friends of both will go to Montgomery Monday. Red Men to Mobile. Tomorrow the Selma delegation to the great council of Red Men will leave for Mobile, where that body convenes on Tuesday morning. Those going will be R. E. 1.. N'lel, great Junior sagamore; D.

Mr. McGeever Announces for Sheriff. Mr. Hugh McGeever has shied his castor In the arena, and accepts the challenge of competitors for the office of sherlfr, and asks the electorate of Jefferson coun ty to consider the qualities of head and heart lie haj demonstrated; and from the way his aident friends and supporters are mopping up in every precinct in the county, he will easily lead every con testant In the first race, with chances good for a majority over all. Tie is well and favorably known; pop ular with all classes, and posseses the business qualifications and proper equip ment to fill any office in the county. Ho has demonstrated his breadth of compre hension and fine business qualities by re peated endorsements of his record as a member of the board of revenue, one of the most difficult and important offices in the county to fill. He has shown his appreciation of the trials and hardships of the Confederate soldier; and been marked as one of the kindest and most liberal toward the old veteran. He has shown fairness and justice to all the peo ple of the county by respectful and care ful cons'deration of the suggestions, pe titions or other applications brought be fore that beard; and, wdth his associate commisisoners for the past eight years, displayed tr.e good management and busi ness capabilities to place the financial condition of the county with the very best in the country. With such a record, he enters the list of candidates for sheriff, and asks his fellow citizens to afford him the oppor tunity to make the best sheriff the coun ty lias ever had. If elected he promises to bring to the discharge of the duties of that office Ills best energies and ef forts, and to execute the law with fair ness, but with all the kindness and con sideration for the rights and feelings of ethers that the circumstances will per mit. Mr. McGeever proposes an innovation on past usages of that office, If elected, by selecting Ins deputies in each beat in consonance with the wishes of the voters of that beat, and to pay them good sala ries, instead of fees, for their services. This plan would secure the most accept able, capaMe and efficient assistants, and by paying salaries, make it to the interest of the deputy to maintain order and enforce observance of the law without encumbering the court dockets with too many cases, some of which might never have been heard of, if the inspiration of fees and nay had not brought them be fore the court In order that profit would be realizfd. lie lias ether ideas of the same kind for the Improvement of the service and management of that office, which he would put into force, which would l>e advantageous to the people and prove for the betterment of conditions. A man of his progressive spirit, practical judg ment and fine management could and would make many Improvements on gen eral usages, save expense to the coun ty. fulfill all requirements, and at the same time execute the law and win the approbation of all good people.

If he will not sell ArbucUles' ARIOSA write to us. We will supply you direct. You will get greater value for your money—a better pound of coffee—full weight—than he can sell you under any other name. He cannot sell Arbuckles’ ARIOSA loose, by tho pound out of a bin or bag, because we supply it only in sealed packages that you can identify every time, which protect the coffee from the dust and impurities that loose coffee absorbs—and insure full weight. Coffee exposed to the air loses its flavor, strength and purity. You cannot tell where it came from—neither can the grocer—he may think he knows—but he doesn’t, and all you can ever know is the price ticket. It is worth remembering that outward appearance is no indication of ‘-cup” quality. Grocers as a rule are honest, trust worthy men who would not consciously mislead you. Whenever one of them advises you to take loose grocery store coffee, instead of Arbuckles' ARIOSA, he doubtless believes he is doing you a favor, whereas he is really depriving you of the most wholesome and delicious beverage that you can buy, something better than anything else he can sell you for the price. The sales of Arbuckles’ ARIOSA Coffee exceed the sales of all otherpackage coffees inthe U nited States combined, and the business of Arbuckle Bros, exceeds that of the four next largest concerns in the world, simply because the public actually receives better coffee for their money in Arbuckles’ ARIOSA than they can buy in any other way. Arbuckles’ ARIOSA Coffee is good to drink—it quenches the thirst and tastes good. Most people need it. It aids digestion, increases the power and am bition to work and it makes one feel like doing things—no after depression. United' States soldiers drink more cof fee than the soldiers of any other nation. If your grocer does not sell ARIOSA let us send you a Family Box. On receipt of $1.80, express or postal money order, we will send 10 pounds of ! ARIOSA in a wooden box, transporta | tion paid to your nearest freight station. The $i.So pays for the transportation ' and the coffee, which will be in the original packages bearing the signature ; of Arbuckle Bros, that entitles you to free presents. Ten pounds—ten pack I ages—ten signatures. If you write for it we will send free a book containing full particulars aud colored pictures of nearly ioo presents for users of Arbue kles’ ARIOSA Coffee. The price of coffee fluctuates—we cannot guarantee it for any period. Address our nearest office. Box Dept. ARBUCKLE BROTHERS, 71 Water. Street, New York City. 100 Michigan Avenue, Chicago, 111.
