WE SAY FAREWELL.
The Daily Picket bids farewell
to its friends and supporters with
this issue, and retires from the
field for the present, if uot for
ever.
The Daily Picket was the ven
ture of my late father, Capt. Em
met L. Ross and wras established
by him nearly eighteen years ago.
Possessing gi’eat talent and the
advantages of a fine education, the
paper was most creditably con
ducted by him up to the time of
his death in 1891. The older
readers are familiar with the sad
circumstances that made me his
successor.
Assuming control at an early
age, I realized my inefficiency for
the responsibility, and bht for the
encouragement of the good friends
that have stood by me so stead
fastly through all thpse years I
would have faltered in my efforts.
My friends made the paper, not
I, and to them I will ever be
grateful for' the leniency with
which they have accepted my
shortcomings and the good will
and patronage bestowed.
The Daily Picket has managed
to thrive under many hard strug
gles, and it is not that I feel dis
couraged, or am going to cease
publishing a paper that 1 suspend
the daily. It is my intention to
devote more time to making the
Weekly Picket a better paper for
the town and county, and also to
the special line of business in
which I have engaged in connection
with iny newspaper work, an
nouncement of which is made in
this issue.
This evening, the little paper
that has visited you in your hours
of joy and sadness bids yun fare
weli. Thankiug'you most kindly
for all favors, with many good
wishes.
Yours truly,
Howard G. Koss.

The Waste of the Body.
Every seven days the blood,
muscles and bones of a man of
average size loses two pounds of
wornout tissue. This waste can
not be replenished and the health
and strength kept up without per
fect digestion. When the stomach
and digestive organs fail to per
form their functions, the strength
lets down, health gives way, and
disease sets up, Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure enables the stomach and
digestive organs to digest aud
assimilate all of the wholesome
food that mav be eaten into the
kind of blood that rebuilds the
tissues end protects the health and
Strength of the mind and body.
