To Those Who Doubt.
THAT a majority of our buying public have implicit
faith in our advertisements is daily proved by re
sults. That there are some people in this community who
do not believe in the truth of any printed statement “goes
without saying. They are not to blame for this, perhaps,
however, “a burn child dreads fire,” you know. So an oft
humbugged buyer is shy of being humbugged again. This
store reaches out for the doubting ones, and desires to prove
to them that in all its advertising, it states facts, —only facts
—plain, pure and simple.

BROUGHT NINE AND A QUARTER.
Another Advance in Cotton Market
Monday.
Nine and a quarter cents waspaid for
cotton in Americus yesterday; not for
one bale but for all the best grades on
the market.
An adyance of fifteen points in con
tracts caused the jump.
And just now it really seems that
much higher prices may be expected,
though the prudent farmer is not
going to miss a good thing by re
fusing nine cents now.
It is so much more than he expected
when the crop was planted. However,
he is to be congratulated upon the
present price of cotton.
It is indeed a long lane that has no
turning point.
The drought is simply playing havoc
with the crop and the yield will be
largely curtailed. In fact, no one
would be surprised to see the market
soon reach ten cents.
Everything depends upon the con
tinuation of the burning drought.
Probably forty bales were received
here yesterday and, as stated, prices
ranged from 9 to 9 1-4 cents. There
are several buyers in the field and the
demand is good.
Better have a good medicine and not
use it than to need it and not baye it.
See? Then just before you get hurt,
buy a bottle of Dr. Tichonor’s Anti
septic. It is a record breaker for
Wounds, Burns, Bruises, Scalds,
etc., for man and beast. 50c. a bottle
at all drug stores.

GIVING WARNING TO EMPLOYES
Those Who Will not Pay Debts Will
be Fired.
The Seaboard Air Line Railway is
sued recently a circular relative to the
payment of debts, which will be of in
terest to employes. In plain words
the circular goes on to state that em
ployes who do not pay their just debts
will be dropped.
According to the circular, it is or
dered that immediately upon the serv
ice of any garnishee process, upon any
officer of this company, that such
officer at once advise by telegraph the
general counsel and paymaster, the
name of the employe whose wages are
garnisheed; how and where employed;
the amount due him from the company
on the date of service of process;
whether married or single, and the
hour and date of service; that imme
diately upon receipt of notice the pay
master will advise the division super
intendents of the facts of the case, and
division superintendents will make a
record of the same, and if it appears
that the wages of the said employe
have been at any time heretofore gar
nisheed, then the superintendent shall
at once discharge said employe from
the service of the company.
Neither can employes give orders
upon the paymaster for amounts duecr
to become due. The circular says
farther:
“The practice of employes giving
orders upon the paymasters for amounts
due or to become due is prohibited,
and if any such order is at any time
hereafter given, the paymaster is here
by prohibited from accepting or pay
ing the same; that he shall at once no
tify the superintendent of the division
upon which the party giving such order
is employed, and said superintendent
shall make a record of the fact and dis
charge the party giving such order
from the service of the company. Di
vision superintendents are enjoined to
enforce this regulation firmly, as it is
necessary to an efficient service, and
the company cannot continue in its
service men who interfere with the
successful operation of the paymaster’s
department by a failure to meet their
obligations.”
These circulars have been posted in
Americus and at other points along the
line for information of employes.
Cold Steel or Death.
“There is but one small chance to
save you life and that is through an
operation,” was the awful prospect set
before Mrs. I. B. Hunt, of Lime Ridge,
Wis., by her doctor after vainly trying
to cure her of a frightful case of stom
ach trouble and yellow jaundice. He
didn’t count on the marvelous powers
of Electric Bitters to cure stomach and
Liver troubles, but she heard of it,
took seven bottles, was wholly cured,
avoided surgeon’s knife, now weighs
more and feels better than ever. It’s
positively guaranteed to cure 8 tomach
Liver and Kidney troubles and never
disappoints. Priec 50c at E. J. Eld

PUMPING ONE MILLION GALLONS
Great Consumption of Water During
Hot Weather.
Americus consumes a vast quantity
of water, which has been increased
considerably during the torrid weather
of the past ten days. Supt. Ansley
said yesterday that sometimes as much
as a million gallons per day was
pumped through the mains, the aver
age daily consumption being from
800,000 to 1,000,000 gallons. A great
deal of this is used for street and lawn
sprinkling, and while there is no sign
of a diminution in the supply of water,
consumers should exercise care and
not waste it. The weather is still in
tensely hot, and unless it rains soon
the supply may be diminished. En
gineer Nix has the pumping station in
excellent condition, and just now the
city has all the pure artesian water
wanted.
TO CLENSE THE SYSTEM
Effectually yet gently, when costive or
bilious, to permanently overcome habit
ual constipation, to awaken the kidneys
and liver to a healthy activity, without
irritating or weakening them, to dispel
headaches, colds, or fevers, use Syrup of
Figs, made by the California Fig Syrup
Co. only.
KILLING DOVES BY HUNDREDS.
Great Slaughter at a Roost North of
Americus.
Americus sportsmen are having a
great time with the doves since the
season opened a week ago. There is a
roosting place two miles above the city
where the doves come by hundreds
late in the afternoon. A day or two
ago a party of local sportsmen took
stands near the roost and killed more
than three hundred of the birds as they
came in toward nightfall. They are
plentiful this season, and dove pies
can be seen on many dinner tables here
just now.
A Monster Devil Fish
Destroying its victims, is a type of
Constipation. The power of this mur
derous malady if felt on orgons and
nerves and muscles and brain. There’s
no health till it’s overcome. But Dr.
King’s New Life Pills are a safe and
certain cure. Best in the world for
stomach, Liver, Kidneys and Bowels
Only 25 cents at E. J. Eldridge’s drug
Store.
LAYING DOWN GRANITE BLOCKS.
Said That Work Will Be No Longer
Delayed.
As stated in Sunday’s Times-Record
er, the city authorities will today be
gin the long delayed work of curbing
College street. A start will be made
at Barlow and the work completed to
Lee, a distance of about GOO feet. When
thia is finished a start will be made at
Furlow, one block away, and pushed
along Lee to the artesian well, a dis
tance of three fourths of a mile. Sev
eral carloads of granite are on hand
here for tnis work and property owners
on both streets are extremely anxious
to see the curbing put down without
any further delay.
