AMERICUS, GEORGIA, MONDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 19, 1915 JOHN W. WHEATLEY In the death of John W. W’heatley, one of Georgia’s best citizens has laid down the burden carried through a period of more than four score years. The passing of this venerable and highly esteemed citizen is not only a loss to the community in which he had lived for sixty years, aid i ing in its development and material growth, but to the entire state as well. 1 He was a business man of sagacity and achieved success in the com mercial world, while in all walks of life as well he commanded the es teem and confidence of his fellow ra :n. His long life’s journey was an honorable one, and he sleeps well. MONEY IN CONVENTIONS Americus is goon t» entertain several state conventions. The first to come this way will be the state Sunday school convention; then the Epworth league convention; and later on the state gathering of the Woodmen of the World. While Americus will take pleasure in entertaining the delegates from all parts of the state still there is a mercenary side to every convention that is also pleasing. It is nice to have these visitors in our city and to entertain them and convert them into Americus boosters. But when we can do this and at the same time carry on a thriving mercantile trade with them, so much the beter. Statistics published by the national chamber of commerce state that on an average every convention spends $lO per man per day. That means SIO,OOO a day for every thousand delegates. The Athens Banner published the follow ing the day the W. O. W. con vention closed their state convention there a few days ago: It is estimated that the convention of Woodmen left at least $7,- or SB,OOO cash in Athens during their stay of three full days here. There were in all more than a til usand delegates and visitors. The delegates received $4 a day and m leage. More of them spent more than their per diem than otherwise. Many of the ladies did considerable shopping; the men, too, spent a good deal of money. So we welcome every single convention. First of all because we like to entertain good substantial people like the delegates are. Second be cause we know we have the best county in the state and want to prove it to them; third, because we want the trade they will bring. We will not be entirely satisfiei that winter is in the discard until we can sit down before a dish of new Irish potatoes.—Savannah Press. Had some Sunday up here in Americus. A statement from the United States treasury department brings out the fact that even the coast of neutrality runs very high. Brunswick News. Wall Street’s recent boom was on two stocks which have not been paying dividends. That does not so ind much like Wall Street, but it is an evidence of a transition from gloom to gladness, and may be the fore runner of bi’ger things.—Dublin Courier-Herald. $ Uhicago went overwhelmingly Republican in the election for mayor last week. The women voters turned the trick against the Democratic candidate. That’s what the Democrats get by letting the women vote.— . Sandersville Georgian. It is said that the prohibition forces of Georgia are going to make a desperate fight this summer to amend the present law so that the state will have prohibition sure enough. It is also said that they will try to include Savannah in the amended bill.—Dublin Citizen. net's see, speaking of the sale of munitions of war, it seems to us that * Xhere was evidence a few years ago that a big German manufacturing concern was found to be stirring up strife among some of the nations att Europe in order to sell them arms and ammunition.—Cedartown Stand ard. Since the defeat of the ship-purchase bill by the combination of seven democrats with the republicans of the senate, ocean rates have ad vanced 65 per cent. —which is a very nice thing for the shipping trust, trart. bad for American commerce.—Cedartown Standard. Sure! That is what the bill was defeated for. The shipping trust is having its own way -—and those seven democrats are responsible for it. —Greensboro Herrld- Journal.

This is the first Instance In which so celebrated a musical artist has appeared on a great chain of Chautauquas.

She Is a beautiful southern wo man of whom the south Is especially proud. Her fame as a singer Is world wide. CUE FOE THE CHILDREN'S TEETH (By Elise Ward Morris.) Every mother knows, or should know, the importance of keeping the ' baby’s mouth sweet and clean. She carefully follows the advice of doctor or nurse, in mopping out the little mouth with antiseptic lotions, and lat er anxiously watches the tender little gums for the appearance of the first ooth. But when all the teeth have agonized their way through, then somehow, the average mother forgets that her little one has teeth to be car ed for. “Oh, they are just the first teeth,” the careless mother says. “So long as they do not hurt, why bother about them?” Any reliable dentist will tell you Hightower’s Book Store Americus, Georgia Engraving a Specialty J that on the care of the first teeth much of the strength and beauty of the ' second will depend. From the time the first teeth have fully matured, af ter all irritation has subsided, the baby’s mouth and teeth should be cleansed night and morning with a very soft camel’s-hair toothbruch. A mild solution of boric acid, or a few ■ drops of peroxide on the brush, must be used in the little one’s mouth at ; least every other day. The average child of two or three will understand that he must not swallow the mouth > wash, and will spit it out readily en > ough. But if there is any difficulty : simply moisten the brush and go over every little tooth very carefully. If the i child objects to the taste of the mouth DRINK IN BOTTLES f- 1 < There are hundreds ot imitations of Coca Cola, but there are none that have ever reached within hail ing distance of the “Old Reliable” as a public favorite. AND THERE’S A REASON Always pure, always fresh, always whole some. Accept no substitute. AMERICUS COCA COLA BOTTLING CO, J. T. Warren, Mgr. wash add a few drops of peppermint. The addition of the peppermint will increase the value of the solution rath er than lessen it, as it is excellent for the little digestion. Needless to say. the prepared dental pastes and lotions used on your own teeth will not serve for the child, unless it has reached four or six years. Even for a child of six it is far better to have your den tist give you a formula for a mild powder than to purchase those sold in . the drug stores. While the reliable manufacturers offer only chemically , pure preparations, the pastes and pow ders may contain ingredients hard on j a child’s stomach if swallowed —and , it goes without saying that the little ’ one will swallow a portion of whatev | er goes into its mouth. Make a thorough examination at least once a month of the child's teeta 1 to find possible decay. While a tooth that is clean stands far less danger of decay, sometimes, despite the best of care, the little first teeth become bad. § This may be an inheritance, or it may be caused by an over acidity of the blood due to improper diet, or other amendable causes. ; IF KIDNEYS ACT BAD TAKE SAETS i i Says Backache is Sign You Have Been r Eating Too Much Meat. i, ’ When you wake up with backache 1 and dull misery in the kidney region it 1 generally means you have been eating too much meat, says a well-known au ' thority. Meat forms uric acid which r overworks the kidneys in their effort 2 to filter it from the blood and they 1 become sort of paralyzed and loggy. 1 When your kidneys get sluggish and clog you must relieve them, like you relieve your bowels; removing all the body's urinous waste, else you have backache, sick headache, dizzy spells; your stomach sours, tongue is coated, and w'hen the weather is bad you have rheumatic twinges. The urine is cloudy, full of sediment, channels of ten get sore, water scalds and you are obliged to seek relief two or three times during the night. Either consult a good, reliable physi cian at once or get from your pharma cist about four ounces of Jad Salts; take a tablespoonful in a glass of wa ter before breakfast for a few days and your kidneys will then act fine. This famous salts is made from the acid of graces and lemon juice, com bined with lithia, and has been used for generations to clean and stimulate sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize acids in the urine so it no longer ir ritates, thus ending bladder weakness. Jad Salts is a life saver for regular •neat eaters. It is inexpensive, can not injure and makes a delightful, ef fervescent lithia-water drink. j; L. G. COUNCIL, Preß*t Inc. 1891. H. S.
