Rev. B. M. Bridges Gives Facts in I His Case It 1 1. n !t ful if there has ever been , a medicine endorsed by so many min isters f the Gospel as lias Tanlac. In deed, there is scarcely fa 'uli. creed or denomina tion tl land in which one. or more, of the clergy men has aot publicly expressed their indebtedness to ,',tlie Premier Preparation for the benefits they have derived from its use. s One of the latest 10 speak oar in this - connect ;on is IJi-v. II. M. l!iiiifes, a wide ly known and beloved Baptist preacher. presiding at Moorosbro, N. C, whose 'T statement follows: "Tardac has given me a good appetite. atoned Uli my system and renewed my . . strength in such a gratifying way that 1 am glad to recommend ;t to anyone who is in a run-down condition. For t.n years past 1 have had such a sevre case ij. of indigestion that I could not tiud any thing to eat that agreed with use. Finai'y I became , very ivrvoas a:.d could -get ,stut very little sleep r lvst. "It .seeing that I Took nearly every thing trying to get myself right, bat noili- ing helped me until ran across Ta li lac. My nerves are so much better now that my sleep is sound and refreshing. I enjoy my meals and have also gained weight. 1 can say from experiioice that Tanlac is a splendid medicine and roaie. for it has; built me up woiah'rfuily." Tanlac is sold by all good diar.gists.

While the l'nite.1 States supreme court is preparing; to review a ease de urminnig the exact rights of the middle man, former Yi-e President Marshall waxes facetious on the snhincr Kun I Marshall: , 'The wife of one of the chief facto :nms of th,.

Although ic.ot people would rather laLe a chaiK-e on the medic than leave the crepe-hanging gentleman for their n lath es to deal with, there are few who do not wish the generous difference be tween what the farmer gets for his pioibicts and what they themselves pay for those products at the counter 'could linger in thir pockets instead of the pockets of the go-betweens. It i- recognized by every intelligent ii'fson that Middh-incn as a class per tot ;u a tiselul. serviee. (Mherwise they would never have appeared in eco nomic scheme. I'.ut there is a growing realization that many of them are su perfluous and many of them take a larger to!! of 'the stuff passing through their hands than their service to the commun ity justifies. Accordingly the movement for direct relations between producer and consumer is bound to grow and steadily restrict the middleman's Held of opera tions. i'OIil'ST ENEMIES. If the f(ife.sts in America are to be preserved, the peo.idewill have to be on guard against insect and fungus enemies and tre diseases as well as against wasteful wood choppers and finest fires. According to an authority on forestry, if something is not done to check the ad vance of the. saw fly. within ten years there will not be a stick of tamarack left in Michigan, where once this timber abounded. Similarly other valuable tim ber in other places is infested with vege tables and insect pests against whose depredations no adequate measures are Icing taken. This is one of the most difficult prob lems of forestry not only because of its scope but because men are prone to think that, no matter what may be true of city trees or home wood lots, the big woods can take care of themselves. The advauce of civilization has les sened the ability of the forest to fight its wn battles. Man in his planting and pushing into the wilds has spread tree pests from one region to another and im ported kinds never known before. In nrnir.g over the soil he has set "free wide-ranging agencies of destruction, even as he prepared for healthy growth in his garden. While he has made the forest his servant as he advanced, he has not served .the forest. It is no wonder ;he trees o down under the unequal bat tle. If man wishes to save the forests for himself l e must save them from the forces he has loosed against them. - Liberty bonds decline as business ;ains. This irregularity in the Liberty bond market is considered by bankers as the natural consequence of the economic turmoil through which the country has passed.. As a general thing it is the 1 ' "' I'll TO - 7&s r 'ij i 1 is - ' P? i V- :.iJ-? ;!

A professor at a Texas institute of learning declares that bathing is merely a fad among Anglo-Saxon and Japanese raws and that the only advantage a per son can derive from bathing is the so cial prestige of a pleasant body odor, that there is no health value in the bath itself. Well, the social prestige is worth all the trouble the old-fashioned H"Satur day night" causes. Somebody has given us Vermontcrs the reputation of being a lot of tax lodgers. The Boston Transcript has heard that more than half the property in ti e state escapes taxation and thinks there must be a lot of Yankee kigenuity up among the Green mountains.

( Keene Sentinel.) In recent vears Halloween, instead of being "All Saints' Night" las often seemed to be rather "All Devils' Night." In many a neighborhood boys have turned a once harmless festival into a riot of noise and destruction. Inevi tably a movement is started for a "safe and sane" Halloween. In many cities efforts have been made, as this year's Halloween approaches, to curb lawlessness and to turn the chil dren's fun into channels no less pleasant but much more decent and sensible. In one city the real estate board has taken ti e lead. The board is interested chiefly in the protection of property from juve nile marauders, and will patrol the city for that purpose. Its efforts are sec onded, however, by those of business and church organizations 'and the public schools. The children are urged to sub stitute games and parties for rowdyism, and are helped in making their plans and getting their materials. It is time that such a reform was in stituted. Pad social Customs cannot be cl anged all at once, any more than bad .habits can be in an individual: but per severance should bring as noticeable im provement in this matter as it has in the Fourth of July celebrations.

Dealers 'come to sell me 'aulos with their tirA that will not" skid, but I show them sundry mottoes I have pasted in my lid. "What is home without a bundle" is the one Tea n't forget, an along the road I trundle, striving to keep out of debt. On the plain and by the river still I plod on aching heels; better that than tool a flivver that is mortgaged to the wheels. Thoughts of creditors dou't grind me as I journey through the land, with my wiener dog behind me, and my, cudgel in my hand. In Ihia world of debt and pleasure I'm a delegate npart; for I think man's greatest treasure is an independent heart; it ia great if one is able to remark in trumpet tones, and be guilty of no fable, "None can say I owe him bones. There's no man beneath our banner who can say I'm . in his debt;" thus I speak, in stately manner, while my eaves drip honest "v . sweat. So I walk beside the river, so I journey up the hill, and I will not own a flivver till I'm fixed to foot the bill. Copyright by George All Saints' day.
