Strange to say, every time we looked at the dentist the throbbing pain lessened, and by the time lie had merely looked at it the aching had about ceased.

To the Public: There being many reports that I had sold friy business to Mr. D. P. Stuart, and said reports being put out by Mr. Stuart, I take this meth od of stilting that I did tell Mr. Stu art J would sell to him. On that day-I left for Mobile and New Or leans,- Mr. Stuart saving that an in ventory of the stock in my drug store could be taken by Mr. Austin and Mr. Carter, my two clerks; and further, iii. the presence of Messrs. D. F. C'.wr and Jno. L. Dudley, lie said that if the stock inventoried $5,000.00 or $500.00, he was to pay me the cash and take it. In my absence the inventory of the goods J had was taken, and to talled o^a counting machine by Mr. B. R. Kuykendall; it amounted to $3,766.38. I showed it to Mr. Stuart, and he l$ft pie, saving he would see me again itia few minutes; return ing, he asked me for my stock book to carry home Saturday night, sav ing that he and Dr. Mooney wanted to look over it. I told him he could not carry it out of the store, but was at liberty to stay in my store, use my desk as long as he and the doc tor desired and look over the in voice. He walked out, and baa not mentioned buying to me since. I had nothing to do with the in voicing nor the adding of same, but ic.it il to tne men wiiom mr. ouian selected—he saying at the time that no'boys ever lived whom he consid SjreitV more honest, and that he was Wfiifhg and ready to pay me and trike the business when they fin ished. He told me several times lie had the money ready, but I can’t say why lie failed to take charge. I am still in, and I am running tiie drug business in Scooba and ex pect to continue until my creditors close me out. I write this in justice to myself for the injustice which has been done me, as I see it, and to lot my friends know the exact situation in toto and in truth. I have and will continue to appre ciate your valuable patronage, and will extend all favors consistent with business principles. ' l! injpelf,will do the prescription work frcm-now on.
