When nt the Sanatorium I heard several of the patients say they did not know howr they would get rid of their old asso ciates on their return home. I have found this the easiest battle to fight, for If a man Is your friend lie will not offer you a drink, and if you do not keep whis ky or drink it, your drinking associates will soon drift from you, and instead of •ponding your evenings with them you will spend your time with your wife and babies, whom you know to be your true friends.

The First National is one of the strongest banking institu tions In the state and this action on the part of the government is considered quite a compliment, inasmuch as very few banks outside of the larger cities are ac corded such honors. This is the only national bank in tho Seventh congres sional district at present. Want Morning Accommodation Train. The merchants of this city have inaugu rated a movement to try to secure a morning accommodation train over the Rome and Decatur division of the South ern railway from Rome, Ga., to this city. If such r train is put on, it would bring an immense amount of business to this city which is now going elsewhere and legitimately belongs to this city. There is a mixed passenger and freight train, arriving over this road from Rome late in the morning, but it Is seldom on time, and there is little dependence to be put In it. Attalla Bank to Pay Dividend. It has been stated on reliable authority that the receivers of the defunct First National bank of Attalla will pay a dividend to the depositors of that insti tution, which failed soveral months ago. The stockholders have been assessed for the amount of their stock, and most of them have responded promptly. The fail ure of the hank has worked quite a hard ship on a number of people, some of whom had all their savings of many years in the bank. The surveying corps of the Interurban Electric railway, who are locating tho route of the proposed railway between this city and Tuscaloosa by way of Birming ham, have reached Ashville, in St. Clair county, and if the weather Is favorable will reach this city the latter part of next week. A great deal of interest Is being taken in the matter here, as it will open up a fine country which heretofore has had no railroad facilities. The Alabama conference and camp meeting of the Seventh Day Adventists Is in progress in Attalla, and will continue until August 2G. Several of the most prominent members of file sect in the United States are in attendance and the meetings are being largely attended. The Gadsden delegation of Masons re turned from Guntersville last night where they Instituted a chapter of Royal Arch Masons, six candidates being given the royal arch degree. State Grand Secretary George W. Beauchamp was present and assisted in the ceremonials. The follow ing from Gadsden were present: H. L. Ison. J. D. Dunlap. M. L. Foster. W. J. Beggs, E. W.

III HlgBlClIllp Alda (Communicated.) NATHAN L. MILLER EOR STATE SENATE SOME REASONS WHY THE DEMO CRATS OF JEFFERSON COUNTY SHOULD ELECT HIM TO THE OFFICE. To the Democrats of Jefferson County: Jefferson county Is allowed seven repre sentatives In the lower house of the legislature and one member of the senate. Thus, while these seven representatives may be selected from different parts of the county or apportioned among the several elements of Its population, the senator stands for the whole county and belongs to all the people. If there ever was a time when the dem ocrats of Jefferson county should unite In the selection of a senator who nas a broad sympathy with all classes of cit izens and who Is sound on these Issues which concern the welfare of the greater number of the people, It Is now. The de velopment of the resources of the county on a larger scale than ever and the even distribution of the benefits of that devel opment depend much upon the laws which will be enacted at the forthcoming ses sion of the legislature. In Mr. Nathan L. Miller, a servant of the public from his boyhood and a life long democrat, you have a candidate who Is worthy in every way of your suf frages. Senator of All the People. In the first place, we desire you to note that In making announcement of his candidacy, Mr. Miller showed a proper sense of the great responsibilities which would rest upon him In the event of elec tion by declaring he would give his “time and attention to the duties of the office, and w’ould endeavor faithfully and hon estly to represent the best Interests of all the people of Jefferson county and state of Alabama.” A Grand Keynote. And subsequently he clearly defined his position as to the issues, which are agi tating the people of the state, as well as these issues which are limited to Jeffer son county and tho city of Birmingham, but are proportionately as important. The grand keynote of all these declarations by Mr. Miller Is sounded In this paragraph of a card to the democratic voters of tho county: “I am now, and always have been, unqualifiedly In favor of government by the people and opposed to govern ment by the corporations.” Consequently, yon are prepared to be lieve him when he says: Original Advocate of Rate Reform. “I am In favor of the regulation by law, of railroad corporations, and all other corporations; and, as a part of such regulation of railroad corpora tions, I am in favor of a genuine and effective provision against excessive and unreasonable rates, and against the practice of discrimination of every kind. I Include within such regula tions car service.” (Mr. Miller was one of the original ad vocates In this state of an elective rail way commission, clothed with adequate powers.) And again, when he declares: Opposed to Trusts. “I am opposed to all combinations, associations and agreements which tend to stifle competition.” Favors Municipal Ownership. And again, when he replies to certain inquiries of the Birmingham Board of Trade. “I will favor any reasonable or fair amendment or new act necessary to authorize the city of Birmingham and other municipalities of the state, to own and maintain municipal water works system.” The True Friend of Labor. A man with such views cannot be un friendly to labor. Mr. Miller maintains that workingmen have as much right to form unions as capitalists have to organ ize corporations, but both should be sub ject to the laws of the land; and he would therefore oppose the repeal of the anti boycott act, which forbids boycotting by persons and black-listing by corporations. Ho is also opposed to any amendment of that law which would in any wise impair its efficiency. Against Bucket Shops and Gambling. in his opposition to gambling, Mr. filler draws no distinction us to the form un der which it is conducted. In its results it is immaterial whether a young man is ruined by his dealings with a bucket shop strictly so called, or with a brokerage concern, or in betting on horse races. Mr. Miller favors the suppression of all those [ concerns in dealing with which many of I the youth of the land are ruined, and all are tempted, and lie favors laws which will drive out of Alabama all concerns by whatever name called, and irrespective of the methods used, which afford fa I cillties for hazarding money in stock | speculation and dealing in futures. Mr. ! Miller will make the enactment of laws, I abolishing exchanges, brokerage houses, I bucket shops, and all similar institutions, a matter of special Importance in his sen atorial career; and any bill seeking to legalize pool-selling or any other species of gambling or betting will receive his' earnest opposition. Mr. Miller favors such increased facili ties for the despetch of judicial business as the growth of the county requires. A Self-Made Man. So much for his principles and con victions. We shall now briefly sketch his history. Mr. Miller is a self-made man, in the sense that he ha3 reached his present position in life by his own exertions. Born In %torgan county, in 18GG, he came to Jefferson county with his father, a practicing physician, in 1883, and in 1885, at the ago of 39 years went to work as deputy clerk and register of the city court. He was appointed clerk and register throe years later by Judge II. A. Sharpe, and fitted the office ac ceptably for nearly eleven years, retiring in September, 1S98, to practice law'. The I duties of clerk and register are laborious and exacting. The fact that Mr. Miller discharged them faithfully, and yet i found time in which to study for his j future profession shows great capacity for work, but docs not realize the full measure of his energy and zeal. During t the greater portion of that period ho was secretary of the county democratic ex ! ecutlve committee, and part of the time ' secretary of the state democratic execu ! tive committee, as W'ell as secretary of | campaign committees in several state and j county campaigns. Trained In the Beat School. There is no better place than a court house in which to acquire a working knowledge of the complex life of the peo ple and the varying conditions which ob tain in the county. Mr. Miller could not have selected a more suitable school wherein to prepare himself for higli public service and to prove that he is a born servant of the people, by the unfailing courtesy, which he extended to Jurors, witnesses, litigants and attorneys and the public In general, and all persons having business with that court during his term of office will recall his efflsitncy and courtesy In conducting the affairs of the ofTice. A General Practitioner. Mr. Miller continued to practice law' alone until 1904, when he formed a co partnership with Judge Sharpe, ills old friend, who had Just rounded out a bril liant term of service as one of the Justices of the supreme court. Mr. Miller's Indi vidual practice was general. He did not make a specialty of damage suits, nor did he seek patronage exclusively from corporations. This Is true of the firm. The Highest Reason. Convincing as all these facts are, there is still a higher reason why the candi dacy of Mr. Miller should appeal to the democrats of Jefferson county. The eyes of the people of the United States are now turned to the democratic party with the hope and expectation that it will correct the abuses which have sprung up in a long period of republican rule. The principles of the democratic party, mis understood, maligned and even ridiculed for years, are duly recognized and ap preciated at last. In Alabama, as in other states, the command Is, "Put none out Scots on Guard," trust no office to any but real and loyal democrats. A Democrat True and Tried. Mr. Miller is such a democrat. An out spoken, aggressive supporter of Mr. Bry an from the beginning, he was secretary of the state campaign committee in 1896, and in addition to doing a great deal of work without compensation, gave freely of his private means to the meagre cam paign fund; nnd no consideration of per sonal friendship or personal interest caused him to falter in his allegiance to the platform of his party in those try ing days. Having given so freely of time, money and talents to his party Mr. Mil ler for the first time solicits recognition, and in doing so is constrained by the law 01 service which he has obeyed all his life, and not by money consideration, for the office, as everyone know’8, is lean pay. An All-Sufficient Answer. As you see him, Mr. Miller will go to the senate with a practical knowledge of the wants and requirements of all his constituents, and with a personality which will command the respect and consideration of his colleagues. Fellow democrats, the welfare of the party, the state, the county and the city demands the election of Mr. Miller. Du your duty and send him to the senate. JOHN L. KAUL. Chairman. (Communicated.)

LIMESTONE PLANTER COMMITS SUICIDE James Jackson Fires Bullet Through His Heart on Farm Near Athens. Athens, August 18.—(Special.)—James Jackson, one of the most prominent and wealthy farmers In this county, shot and killed himself at his residence on his rich landed estate in the west part of the county late yesterday afternoon. He was a man worth many thousands and was a successful planter. Ho wrote a note while at his dinner table and left it with him family, saying to them as he left the room, "Do what I have said In that note.” He then went to his room and im mediately tho family were Btartled by a gunshot and rushing to his room found him dead by his own hand, having fired a .44 bullet through his heart. He was a very large man, Jolly and popular with his neighbors. He was about 45 years of age, and there Is no known reason for his suicide. Ho and a brother attempted to set up a will they claimed was left by their father, who died some months ago, and the trial >was long drawn out here, and resulted In some ugly facts being brought out and the Jury declined to admit the will as the last of their father, and then suits were filed by a sister, asking for an accounting of the estate of the father and it is said this preyed on the mind of the man un til it Is presumed he had rather face death than the result of the trial. He leaves a large family. French Growers Organize. Meridian. Miss., August 18.—(Special.)— The Meridian Fruit and Truck Growers' association was organized today with the following officers: R.

At beginning of treat ment I used 60 grains of morphine every twenty-four hours by mouth. I was reduced to sliln and bones. I have gained twenty-six pounds since, and feel better than T did before commencing to take morphine. During treatment I was not confined to my bed one day. but was working from 4:30 in the morning until 8 o'clock in the evening, and then went to bed and slept all night. I haven't taken any opiates of any kind since the 13th of December, 10(55. neither have I used Morphlna-Cura since that time.
