"I believe," says an old subscrib
er, "that every time The Youth's
Companion enters a home it does
that home a genuine service."
That describes the purpose of pub
lishers exactly. The paper is not
filled with mischievous or idle
thoughts to fill an idle hour. It
provides healthy pastime, recrea
tion that builds up. It is to the
minds of eager and impressionable
young people what sound athletics
are to the bodies.
At cost of less than four cents a
week The Youth's Companion op
ens the door to a company of the
most distinguished men and wo
men in America and Europe.

Now that the city sewer system
is completed several property own
ers on Main street have employed
Geo. W. Kemper to connect their
basements with the main pipe, and
work on same is now being done.
Among those who will have their
basements connected up this fall
are the Richardson Hotel, the First
State Bank, R. T. Blenkner, T. B.
Hurly, and Donovan Bros, on one
side of the street, and the Burke
County State Bank on the other.
In the basements of all these
buildings and several others there
is water which has been standing
for many years, and the stench
from same unless pumped out al
most daily is unendurable. Under
this condition the floor above the
basements have been unhealthy to
say nothing of the unpleasant odor.
It is hoped that those who own
property on Main street and have
not yet. made arrangements to in
stall the sewer system in their cel
lars will do as soon as possible.
In addition to connecting his
building with the sewer system H.
L. Richardson is also connecting up
with the city water works system,
thus giving him running water at
all times in his hotel together with
a place to dump all sewerage.

Since the old-fashioned theory of cur

given up by scientists, many different
salves have been tried for skin diseases.
But It has been found that these salves
only clog the pores and cannot penetrate
to the inner skin below the epidermis
where the eczema germs are lodged.
This—the quality of penetrating—
