A Night of Terror.
Awful anxiety was felt for the
widow of the brave Gen. Buanham
of Machias, Me., when the doctors
said she would die from pneumonia
before morning," writes Mrs. L. II.
Lincoln, who attended her that fear
ful night, but she begged for Dr.
King's New Discovery, which had
more than once saved her life, and
cured her of consumption. After
taking, she slept all night. Further
use entirely cured her." This mar
vellous medicine is guaranteed to
cure all throat, chest and lung dis
eases. Only 50c and $1.00. Trial bot

Stood Off Death.
E. B. Munday, a lawyer, of Hen
rietta, Texas, once fooled a grave
digger. He says: "My brother was
very low. with malarial fever and
jaundice. r I persuaded him to try
Electric Bitters, and he was soon
much better, but he continued their
use until he was wholly cured. I
am sure Electric Bitters saved his
life." This remedy expels malaria,
kills disease germs and purifies the
blood ; aids digestion regulates the
liver, kidneys and bowels ; cures
constipation, dyspepsia, nervous
diseases, female complaints ; gives
perfect health.

A Goed Meeting.
A revival meeting began with the
Hickory Valley Baptist church ou
the 15th inst., and continued one
week. Rev. Ross Moore, of Jack
son, was with us and did the preach
ing to the delight and permauent
good of all who heard him. The
church and Christian peoplenf the
town and community were greatly
revived and strengthened, aud about
twenty professed faith in Christ,
and there were sixteen additions to
the church.
While the meeting formally closed
on Saturday night, yet we had two
very important services yesterday.
One was the baptizing, which oc
curred at Crew's Pond, in the pres
ence of a large crowd of people, at
3 o'clock p. m. The other, was a
service held in the church at night.
Bro. Moore ran down from Jackson
in the afternoon to be with us in
this service. He preached an able,
interesting sermon from Ps. 87:2,
at the close of which the right hand
of church fellowship was extended
to the newly received members.
The church then entered into the
consideration of building a house of
worship. The writer read some ap
propriate passages of Scripture and
briefly commented on the same, and
after prayers for God's direction,
subscriptions were solicited and five
hundred and forty dollars were sub
scribed. Committees were appointed
to solicit further contributions, and
to ascertain where and on what
terms a suitable location could be
procured, and also to secure some
plans of a building and the cost of
We mean business, and while our
means are somewhat limited, yet we

cases. It cures when all else fails.

of Asthmaline received in good condition. I cannot tell you how thank,
f ul I feel for the good derived from it. 1 was a slave, chained with putrid
aore throat and asthma for ten years. I despared of ever being enred. I
saw your advertisement for the cure of this dreadful and tormenting dis
ease, asthma, and thought you had overspoken yourselves, but resolved
to give it a trial. To my astonishment, the trial acted like a charm.
Send me a full-sized bottle."
