Monday's crowd looked like old
times, but many of the old faces
are supplanted by the new gener
ation... This section fs blessed
with showers and good crops not
accorded even some" sections of
this county We did not know
any more about the election from
the crowd Monday than we knew
before. Our readers will know
more about it after they read
the Independent than they do at
this writing. The results will be
known by ten o'clock Thursday
night... The little scrap in
Mexico does not get any position
in the headlines We will try
to get the tabulated vote for our
readers in next isue We
have no space for any dead mat
ter or ads, so you will have fresh
ads as well as other matter, and
the ads are just as valueable
reading and often more so a3
pure reading matter The
picnics and barbecues will now
go into winter quarters The
greatest war the world ever
knew looks inevitable,, and is
really on The watermelon
crop was consumed Monday, from
the piles of rubbage in every
alleys The world's war will
be a death knell to cotton, and
a lowering of prices on every
thing else we raise in excss of
home consumption We trust
the results of the election will
show that the use of red liquor
does not carry McNairy elections.
.......That work on double-tracking
the M. & 0. has not gotten
under headway yet. Every
one must expect a general stag
nation of business while the wars
rage. We ought to be thankful
that the big waters may keep
them off our toes In air bat
tles so far no hospitab are need
ed. Baskets for the fragments
only are' needed The Ger
mans are the best trained sol
diers in the world. Five millions
seems invincible Unless the
government valorizes cotton and
stores it, issuing certificates for
same, it will not bring 5 cts. in
the open market ..Now we
see whether we need a merchant
marine. The American flag would
be exempt from capture, while
we are neutral and at peace....
American tourists across the big
pond are trying to get back, but
all are stranded for money and
vehicles to come back on. Let
ters of credit and sich do not go
in times of war We can use
our battleships to send gold
across and bring back Qur tour
ists. We have no other crafts
floating our flag.
QUIT TAKING RISKY CALOMEL
Here is a vegetable tonic that is
far better for you to take than the
dangerous drug and poison called cal
omel. You never can tell when calo
mel is going to "get you." That's the
worst thing about taking so uncertain
and dangerous a drug for constipation
and liver trouble. Calomel is liable
to salivate you or4 "knock you out"
for at least a day the very next time
you take it.
B. L. Browder has the mild vegeta
ble remedy . that successfully takes
the place of calomel. This remedy is
Dodson's Liver.Tone, a very p'easant
tasting liqu'd that gives quick but
gentle relief from constipation, torpid
or "lazy" liver.
D )dson's Liver Tone is fully guar
anteed, and if you buv a large bottle
fo fifty cent an ! it doe not mtirety
fatisfy you, the drug store where yr.u
bough-, it will promptly give you your
m n v back wi'h a smile
DodsWs is fine for bo h children
and grown people. adv
