j Hon. J. T. Gunter Again Elected.
! As a result of the primary
S election lield yesterday Hon. J.
j T. Gunter will again occupy the
j office of Mayor of the City of
Columbus for another term,
while the Council "will be com
posed of the same members with
the exception of Mr. E. S. Moore
'as Councilman from the fifth
ward. For School trustees Mr.
W. M. Kilpatrick lead the ticket
with others in the following or
der, W. C. Gunter. VVT. N. Puck
ett, and Wm. New by.
This election closed one of the
quietest campaigns the city has
witnessed in some time and was
peacable and orderly throughout,
the election being held with no
sign of rowdyism, and the cam
paign being conducted with the
best feeling between the rival
candidates. The total number
of votes polled was 404, and, while
a good vote for Columbus, yet,
considering her boasted tenthous
and population, it should have
been larger. A large number of
those who appeared at the booths
to vote were disqualified from
the fact that they had failed to
register and pay taxes, which
partly explains the small number
of votes polled.

Growing Aches and Pains.
Mrs. Josie Summer, Bremond, Tex
as, writes, April 15, 1902: "I have
used Ballard's Snow Liniment in my
family for three years I would not
be without it in the house. I have
used it on my litlle girl for growing
pains and aches in her knees. It
cured her right away. I have also
used it for bitten feet with good suc
cess. 'It is the best liniment I ever
used.' " 25c, 50e, $1.00. Sold by

Death of Mr. Henry Hackleman.
The funeral of- Mr. Henry
Hackleman, whose sad death oc
curred at his home near Mill
port Sunday morning', was con
ducted from the residence Mon
day, the interment occurring in
Tabernacle cemetery. Mr.
Hackleman was the brother of
Mr." J. C. Hackleman of this city,
and his death was all the more
sad in view of the death of his
sister, Mrs. McCullough, which
occurred a few weeks ago. The
deceased was a man who bore
the good will of his neighbors
and his presence will be missed
from the community which for
many years had been his home.
He leaves a heart-broken wife
and four children to whom The
Dispatch extends sympathy.
We are glad to report Miss
Bessie SnelJ, who has been quite
ill at the infirmary for some
ime, much improved in health.
Women -and the Baltimore Fire.
A generous and graceful
tribute to the calmness of women
in danger is that paid by Mr.
Lynn Roby MeekLns, editor of
the Baltimore Herald, in his ar
ticle in the June Delineator. He
tells not only of women who
worked in the thick of the de
struction with and for their em
ployers, husbands and fathers,
and of the brave and cheerful
way in which, when all was lost,
they set to work at humble occu
pations to support themselves,
but of their ability to rise quite
above the consideration of ma
terial things in the recognition of
essentials. l'One young hus
band," he says, "made his way
home and, pale and trembling,
approached his wife. 'I am
ruined,' he exclaimed. 'My dear,'
she replied, smiling through her
anxiety, 'you are not hurt a bit.'
That was the woman's view of the
situation. It was mainly personal."
Will overcome indigestion and dis
pepsia, regulate the bowels and cure
liver and kidney complaints. It is
the best blood enrieher and invigora
tor in the world. It is purely vegeta
ble, perfectly harmless, and should
you be a sufferer from disease, you
will use it if you are wise.
II. N. Andrews, Editor and Mgr.
Cocoa and Roekledge News, Fla.,
writes: "I have used your Herbine
in my family and find it a most ex-,
cellent medicine, Its effects upon
myself have been a marked benefit.
I reccomend it unhesitatingly." &c.

Death of Bertie Love.
"We regret to note the sad
death of Bertie Love, daughter
of Mr. Bob Love of this city, who
died at her home Sunday morn
ing at 3 o'clock after an illness of
only a few hours duration. The
deceased was about eleven years
of age and was taken ill Saturday
morning rapidly growing worse
in spite of all that physicians
could do to ease her suffering..
The funeral occurred from the
residence Sunday afternoon, Rev.
A. J. Miller conducting the ser
vices. The following acted as
pall-bearers: Messrs. D. D.
Richards, J. O. Parsons, J. F.
Perkerson, Charles Jacob, Henry
Noland and J. D. Halcomb, Jr.
The e4ld draughts of air, too keen
and cutting winds, sudden changes of
temperature, scanty clothing, undue
exposure of the throat and neck after
public speaking and singing bring on
coughs and colds. Ballard's Ilore
hound Syrup is the best cure.
Mrs. A. larr, Houston, Texas,
writes, Jan. 31, 1902: "One bottle of
Ballard's llorehouud Syrup cured me
of a very bad cough. It is very
pleasant to take." :I5c, 50c, $1.00.
