It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds, liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles, they went in on her, but one göod dose of Thedford's Black-Draught made them break out,' and she has had no more trouble. I shall never be without « u I I t N BLAck-DraugHT m in my home." For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi- Jj malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar ^ ailments, Thedford's Black-Draught has proved itself a safe, g ÿ reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.

FARMER'S TELEPHONES A dollar a mooUi does not go far enough after it gets into the telephone company's treasury tw f 1 satisfy the manager who has to § y the upkeep and operating cx nses on a big rural line system, d keeps a little small change to f hand over to stockholders yaee J in six months. He has to cut loo f many corners, and run too many J chances of getting caught short J of a bank balance by a sleet Ü storm or a law suit. Twelve dollars a year is too low 1 for farmers' line service on the I average system, with the quality 1 and cost improved as it has been I in the last few years. It is time to start after this rate. The farm cari afford to pay more—why should not they be induced to rec ognize value received? Of course we know what the farmers do when it is proposed to raise the telephone rate. But can this go on forever? What is the best way to get this thing into better shape? Some have done it rTelephony. (The Inde t Telephone JovmeL i j-, ■ A ■r j. ■* ——:— j L — — --- : I Mrs. J. H.

Will ^ ^ ] onty or wan t$ i 1 , . noTi I No human being can answer question i i j that question today, though some may make a ludicrous bluff at do J in g so. i At no time in the life of the present generation has the birth! 1 0 f a new year been fraught with! so much uncertainty with regard [to the world in general and our iown country in particular. We all hope and pray that the| end and that the world r return to some semblance of war may may sanity and commercial stability. But there is no certainty—only an intense longing for something j that is not. w , AYe are pinning our faith to t ej ability of our country to keep,^ ree from foreign entang cments, but again there is no certainty only an abiding faith that may be |£ founded upon the phantasies of' 1 our dreams. AVe are looking and longing for j the day to come when men will cease to butcher one another and return to the more humanizing pursuits of a peaceful life. But our longing results only in more looking and longing. There is no peace. We anticipate a year of great commercial prosperity for the people of our own country, and it will be theirs if no unforseen, combination of incidents overturn ! the tranquility of the nation. But! in this, too, there is an "if," and the if i* not of our making. We are promised a vear of un exam pled activity among the fac- j torn*-, and in ti e fields, and in all j of the marts of trade, but much of j it will Jepend upon the actions of | other nations than ours. And we are today a government and a| people without friends among j other peoples of the earth. We have grown and expanded devel and until we are the a and richest of all the countries of the world, and vet our great wealth is today an actual menace to our peace and security of the future, for the nation that is hungry for gold will not be choice in its mode of attack when the time for inva is of sion comes. But let us face the future with optimism and with faith, with eyes open to every essential fact, and with a firm determination to persevere and to conquer in the face of all obstacles. Let us dare to be just and right in all of our dealings with nations and with individuals, and when sa . nit ^ returns the world we ^ oa I ) as a%e 1IS P n L 0lir ® wn 0 ' . der ff.v placing the country in a at s " a l e of defense sn men _ Slir /A lS atta ^ k +1 and then let ns give the world to understand that we are a just and righteous people; that we seek to i do haim to no man or collection j<# men, and that we have nothing - j in our hearts but good will to ward all»people, The new year will bring ns i something, but what that some thing is to be will depend greatly upon the course we ourselves pur sue. !

It develops that the storm of Tuesday night which for some time seemed ta have swept Cor inth and vicinity, extended from the extreme western belt to the Atlantic Coast, and as a result there is considerable damage in property. Thus far no lives are reported to have been lost. The property damage in around Corinth is somewhat severe, tho uo one person suffered such a great extent. A large tree near the Pollock home on Foote street was blown across one of Miss Annie Pol lock's greenhouses, smashing the glass top. The grand stand at the ball park was demolished. The residence of J. M. Hamm that was under construction on the Turner Hill west of Corinth that was blown over during the high wind, will be moved and re placed. J. P. Walker reports a chimney flue and several panels of fence at his place blown down. One of the warehouses belong ing to the Pocahontas Lumber Co. was damaged to some extent, and several trees were blown down in the different parts of the county.

It may bring us much or little, as we choose. The question is, what do we choose ? in the parlance of the street, "it is up to us." One thing we need is greater commercial activity. But how are we to promote it? We need a closer community interest between the farmer and his family, and the town man and his family. In many ways each is dependent upon the good will of the other, but few of us'seem to realize this. In years past farmers Lave been shipping their products away to market in small quantities and re alizing small profits while the ra pacious middlemen have rolled in the gold that should have found its way back to the farms. And the loss to the farmer is likewise a loss to the town and the com munity in general. We should not permit another year to go by without remedying this glaring defect in our system. It can be done. The business men of Corinth should all get together and devise some method whereby they can market the products of all of the farmers quickly, economically, and without the aid of so many It may take a hungry go-betweens. little brain work, and a trip or two to some central market in or der to put the seeme into practi cal working order, but it can be done if it is undertaken in the a of i j ^ ,| 1(> f armers .
