Does It Pay To Buy Cheap?
A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all right, but you want something
that will relieve and cure the more
severe and dangerous results of throat
and lung troubles. What shall you do?
(Jo to a warmer and more regular cli
mate? Yes, if possilble; if not possible
for you, then in either case take the
only remedy that has been introduced
in all civilized countries with success
in severe throat, and lung troubles,
“Boschee's German Syrup1” It not only
heuls and stimulates the tissues to de
stroy the germ desease, but allays infla
matiou, causes easy expectoration,
gives a good night's rest, and cures the
patient. Try one bottle. Hecomended
many years by all druggists in the
world You can get this reliable remedy
at—Pound, kincunnon & Elkin.

Questions Answered.
YeB, August Flower still has the
largest sale of anv medicine in the civi
lized world. Your mothers’ and grand
mothers’ never thought of using any-,
thing else for Indigestion or Billious
ness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldem heard of Appendicitis, Nerveous
Prostration or neaat failure, etc. They
used August Flower to clean out the
system and stop fermentation of un
digested food, regulate the action of the
liver.*stimulate the nervous and organic
action of the system, and that is all
they took when feeling dull and bad
with head aches and other aches. You
only need a few doses of Green’s
August Flower, in liquid form, to make
you satisfied there is nothing serious
the matter with you. Y'ou can get
this reliable remedy at Pound, Kincan
non & Elkip.

Swarms of Lawyers Seek the
Victims of a Wreck.
Columbus, Miss., Sep., 8.—
Since the wreck at Barry, Ala.,
last Monday in which thirty-five
colored residents of this city were
killed and eighty or more were
seriously, if not fatally injured,
the town has been swarming with
solicitors, claim agents and at
torneys trying to effect a com
promise, and other working up
litigation against the railroad.
Any number of inducements have
been offered the negroes by the
Birmingham attorneys to get their
cases, hut most all have given
them to local law firms.
A Girl’s Character.
A girl cannot be too careful
about her character, for, like a
snowy lilly the least blemish tar
nishes its beauty. Some girls
really do uot meau auy harm, but
they seem to like a delicate sense
of propriety, and frequently in
vite criticism of an unkind nature.
They laugh loudly, make acquaint
ances too freely, and consider
reticence a requisite best suited
for our grandmother’s day. The
girl who is slow to make acquaint
ance is, generally speaking, the
best sort of girl. When you get

thing. It checks the familiarity
of others, and affords a superior
attitude of mind. The girl who is

now in session at the Court House

be assured of a hearty response
from this devoted body of pub
lic servants. These teachers have
left their homes and are here de
fraying their own expenses,
working faithfully in order that
they may get strength to better
serve the public. This is a sacri
fice that is made by no other
body of men and women and
should meet with endorsement
aud encouragement from the pub

school work such as Pedugogy,
Psychology aud subject matter
are being presented aud masterly

W hat Is Home?
Recently a Loudon magazine
sent out 1,000 inquiries on the
question, “What is home?” In
I selecting the classes to respond, it
was particular to see that every
one was represented. The poor
est and richest were given an
equal chance to express their sen
timents. Out of 800 replies re
ceived, several geme were select
ed as follows:
1. Home—A world of strife
shut out, a world of love shut in.
2. Home—A place where the
small are great and the great are
3. Home—The father’s king
dom, a mother’s world aud the
child’s paradise.
4. Home—The place where w e
grumble most and are treated
o. Home—The center of our
affection, round which our heart’s
! best wishes twine.
7. Home—The place where the
stomachs get three square meals
daily and our hearts a thousaud.
7. Home—The only place on
earth where the faults and failings
of humanity are hidden under the
sweet mautle of charity.
