SEABOARD AIU LINTE RATES, The Seaboard Air Line yesterday died a bond for $5,000 in ltd appeal from the new fertilizer rate order. This means that the Seaboard will maintain the old rate pending the hearing of the appeal. The appeal Is to the Superior Court, end the bond is to secure repayment of the overcharge to shippers in case the railroad loses Its case, and Is finally compelled to put in iorco the new and lower rate. This being go, it would be well for shippers of fertilizers over the Seaboard to keep a memorandum of their ship? ments nnd the amounts paid, so that ?when the court sustains the new rate, as it probably will, they can send in claim for the excess of the old rate paid over the new rate. Unless this Is done tiie shippers will receive no? thing at all. IT IS NKW IUH\. (Raleigh Post.) The following not only explains It? self, but is very gratifying. It settles by law a long disputed point, nnd we be Uave correctly. We are indebted to our old friend.

CHANGE OF CLIMATE WON T CURE CONSUMPTION The Slocum System is Needed. A Curative Medicinal Treatment Founded on Modern Scientific Truths is More Potent -^- ?Than Air Alone. FREE TREATMENT FOR I/UNG WEAKNESS. If those of our readers who reside in the most highly favored sections of this country, where the climate is healthy and invigorating, with a dry and tonic atmosphere, will look about them, they will sec a greater or less number of their friends aud neighbors dying of con? sumption, while many others have already been carried oft by that dread malady. ? These deaths have occurred from time to time amid the refreshing prairie breezes of summer; in the fair and mel? low days of autumn, and also in the dry and suuny seasons of a southern winter. gJSuch deaths amid such favorable sur? roundings afford positive and convinc? ing proof that climate alone will not cure consumption; that neither pine laden breezes nor bracing mountain air will restore weak lungs or build up a constitution that is being undermined and broken down by the insidious germs of a fatal disease. But, on the other band, many thou, sands of testimonials from grateful peo? ple all over this country, who have been cured by the Dr. Slocum System of Treatment, and are today in the enjoy? ment of perfectly restored health and strength, afford the most convincing evidenco that this treatment, aided by favorable climatic conditions and sur? rounding-!, is n positive cure for Con? sumption and all other chronic diseases of the Tbroat, Chest and Lungs. Thcrcforo, those who go to the moun? tains, the seashore or to southern cli? mates, as well as those who already reside in such favored localities, should not fail to take the Dr. Slocum System ! of Treatment if they wish to derive the ' j full benefits of favorable climatic condi? tions and scientific medication. The Dr. Slocum System of Treatment (consisting of Four Preparations) is both medicine and food. The medicines used I in it allay the cough and lung irritation, I heal the soreness and subdue the pains I in the throat, overcome shortness of j breath, improve the appetite and diges I tion, and bring comfort, rest and re i freshing sleep, while its food properties ? are building up the constitution, enricli iue the blood and infusing the sufferer with new life and vigor. No single remedy will accomplish all this, but the Four Remedies embodied in the Dr. Slocum System of Treatment I will. More than a quarter of a century ' has been devoted to perfecting this j System of Treatment; every indication, every symptom in Consumption and other diseases of the Throat and Lungs, I has been carefully studied in the novel opmeiit of this Troatment, therefore those who take it and give it a fair trial, certaiuly avail themselves of all that modern science and skill havo to offer for the cure of Consumption and all forms of wasting diseases. Dr. Slocum's faith in the efficacy ol his System of Treatment is so strong, and his interest in the welfare of hu? manity so ercat, that he will cheerfully send his complete Svstcm of Treatment (Four Preparations)' FREE to nil Suf? ferers who ask for it.

DUMVILLB, Lock Box 277. Suffolk, Vuiginia. At the drug store of J. Milhau's Son?, in New York City, on riroad wav, just below Dey, the clerk from whom a package of Ripans Tabules was bought, said : " Ripans is one of the best sellers in our line. We sell a great many gross a month, and entirely on their merits, too. The five-cent packages seem to sell as freely as chewing gum does." To the inquiry as to what seems to have created tne demand, he said: "Next to the clever advertisements, which make the name known, the very oddity of the name assists the first sale. After that they go on their merits. Those who buy them buy again and again. The de? mand seems to be on the increase constantly. The combination is O. K.
