Meeting Now Going On
Attend the big meeting at the
Cotton Warehouse now in full
blast. This place was secured
so that there would be room for
everybody, the town and country
people will have plenty of room.
Rev. R. H. B. Gladney says that
a place has been set apart for
the colored people. We regard
this a good feature. Let every
body hear the gospel.
Quite a number of the members
of the New Odd Fellows at Stur
gis attended the Odd Fellows'
celebrtaion here last Friday even
ing and was royally entertained
by their host. Ridgely Lodge
No. 23 here. All of them express
ed themselves highly pleased
that we heard say anything.
Everybody had a pleasant time
on the occasion. A most excel

Mr. Geo. D. Hart ness lias es

of the A. Gressett Music House
of Meridian. The instrument
is new and one of the best made.
It would have never been
placed where it is had it not been
of the best extant. The house is
one of the best and most reliable
in the South and almost as old as
Meridian itself. It lias kept pace
with the city, which is the larg
est and most prosperous city,
probably, within the borders of
the State. It sells thousands of
instruments the State
in competition to such cities as
Memphis, Mobile and New Or
leans close by.
As above indicated and a fact
this Music House is one of the
largest in the South and home

honorable in all their their deal

State and with all their custom

you need anything in the musical
It seems to have become an op
en issue now that any man who
is a cigarette smoker is not an
eligible candidate for popular
faroi. A word to the wise is suf
ficient, and we would suggest to
any cigarette smoking candidate
if any, and were we in the sug
gestion business, we would go a
step or two further to advise al
such to “cut it out. ” There is
no joke about this, some only
smoke one now and then so as to
run all the gates. If you don't
smoke’em, don't do it.

We’ll furnish the paint to

ever other paint he likes; sann

by one-tenth to seven-tenths,
we’ll give him the paint. If our
half isn't sounder six years lienee
we’ll give him the paint. Any
We say one tenth, because
there are two or three paints
with about that difliercnce; we
say seven—there are dozens of
paints with about that differ

A Mineral Water that Defies Drags j
Nature’s Great Blood Tonic I
The recent drug exposures in this Country have proven to all that deadly poisons w
and stimulants lurk in many Patent Medicines. You never know when you might be tak- J
ing some of that class.
Nature has made ample provision for restoring vigor and vitality to humanity, and f|
the public, as well as doctors, resort to Natural Remedies, when all others have failed.
Are you troubled with Dyspepsia, Nervousness, Malaria, Kidney or B
Bladder Trouble, Chronic Diarrhoea or Dysentery, and above all, that
dreadful disease Scrofula, which has almost baffled human skill, or Diseases pecu a
liar to Females?
Piedmont-Bedford Concentrated |
I Iron 1 Alum Water j
Is Nature’s Remedy for Nature’s Ills. Yes, when you consider that disease comes }
from impoverished or run down conditions of the system, this Natural Mineral Water
furnishes the system what it needs.
The analysis of this Water, shown on the bottle, tells you what Nature thinKs
you should talle when sicK, and the doctor who reads it will agree.
Do you think the grouping together in this Water of 17 different minerals, which
are recognized by medical writers as most powerful blood tonics, could have been B
accidental? Reason answers, NO !
An 18-oz bottle of Piedmont-Bedford Concentrated Iron and Alum water contains
all the minerals of 25 gallons of the average natural water —Then why buy a barrel I
of water when you can get a bottle of minerals at the trivial cost of
one dollar. The dose is a teaspoonful in a glass of your own spring water. p
How this Water acts upon the system is not clearl *r known. It is judged mainly
by its works. It has cured all the diseases above, and many more, evidently ||
through its action as a powerful BI*OOD TONIC.
We have many valuable certificates, which we will be glad to enail, if you are B
interested. ECHOLS CO., Lynchburg, Va. |
