He Lies to an Old Veteran to See What He’d Say. "I went up to Chlckamauga with Judge Newman and Col. Barbour Thompson," said Private John Allen to the Atlanta Constitution. "I walked about the field and heard hundreds of old fellows talk ing about the spots on which they had been wounded and telling all manner of marvelous stories. I was at not Chlck amauga, but 1 was in other battles, and when a man tells you that he can turn and pick out spots where all sorts of things occurred in a battle this many years afterwards you may put him down as a liar. "Well, everybody up (here was lying, and I had to do a little myself. "X was standing by the railroad station at the fijot of one qt ttye hills when an old veteran accosted me and asked if I knew when the next train left for Home. " 'No.' said I, 'this is the first tltpe I have been here in thlrty-t\?o years, and, my friend, when I stand here and look upon this hill, recalling the charge I made up It through a shower of shot and shell, how I dashed my horse right through a federal battery, leaping seven different cannons arid emerged from a shower of bullets unscathed, I wonder that I am alive today.’ "As the old fellow listened to my story his eyes filled with tears. He walked up and, putting ills arm about me, said: “ 'Young man, you were spared for some great purpose.' ”—Exchange. SELMA. The Cotton Seed Oil Mill Began Operations Yesterday-Two Days’ Racing.

At the request of Congressman Under wood the Birmingham Public library has been designated a depository fur public documents. It is the custom of the gov ernment to furnish these documents free to one library in each district, and a few weeks ago Congressman Underwood wrote the officials in Washington asking that the public library of this school be designated as such depository. The response to the request came yes terday morning stating that it had been granted. THE riUSCULAR SYSTEM of every weary, thin or thin blood ed person does its work with con stant diffieultyand fatigue. They feel “worn,” or tired out, “run-down" or nervous. Feeble people who are dyspep tic, find that ex ercise after a meal is sure to cause lessened power to digest food — be cause there is so little blood, and what there is, is carried off from the gastric organs to the muscles. What is needed is plenty of blood, and that of the right kind. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery makes pure, rich blood, and to gain in blood is nearly always to gain ill wholesome flesh lip to tbe ileal thy standard. Every one should have a certain surplus of flesh to meet tile emergencies of sick ness ; to resist the attack of consumption, grip, malaria and fevers. Thin blooded people are always getting sick, and none of tbe organs of the body can get along with out the food they require for work, which is, pure blood. To gain and to keep strength and flesh is the secret of health, usefulness and happiness. With new blood and re freshed nerves a confident feeling of return ing health comes also. Nervous manifestations, such as sleep lessness, nervous debility and nervous prostration are in nine cases out often “the cry of the starved nerves for food." If you feed the nerves on pure rich blood tbe nervous symptoms will cease. It is bad practice to put the nerves to sleep with so called celery mixtures, coca compounds or malt extracts ; what it needed is a blood maker. The “ Discovery ” is composed of vegetable ingredients which have an es pecial effect upon the stomach, liver, and blood making glands. For the cure of dyspepsia, indigestion, liver complaint, weakened vitality, and for puny, pale peo ple, Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discov ery cannot be equaled.
