Sick Half the Time.
In diseases of the kidneys and urinary organs men and women once strong,
hearty and vigorous are soon reduced to comparative helplessness, at times
they are able to get about and do odd jobs, at others prostrated completely.
This was the experience of thousands of persons who owe their present good
health to the great heaiing effect of ! PRICKLY ASH BITTERS. Why endure
all this distress when aj-emedy that has proved its power and effectiveness in
such ailments can be so easily obtained. PRICKLY ASH BITTERS is a kid
ney tonic, liver and stomach stimulant and bowel purifier combined, therefore
it exercises its cleansing and restorative influence uniformly in every part of
the body. For the weakening irregularities peculiar to women PRICKLY
ASH BITTERS bas obtained the very highest endorsement. It corrects
stomach and bowel disorders in children.
Here i a victim of neglect.
Bad digestion was the starting point. lie
ignored the warnings sent up by an over
loaded and suffering stomach, hence the dis
order spread until it has seriously weakened
the entire digestive apparatus, involving the
kidneys, liver, bowels. It is the beginning of a sick spell,
A person in this state of health finds work a burden.
Strength and energy are gone, he can't eat with relish, he
is tired, cross, nervous and dull a truly useless and ' disa
greeable person. The worst part about it is that such a
person is liable to take any dangerous disease that ma' be
about. Pneumonia, Consumption, Bright's Disease, Chol
era, Typhoid or Yellow Fever, Malaria, Smallpox would
find in him an easy mark because his system is weakened by impurities which are poisoning
his very life-blood. In this condition a powerful system cleanser and regulator is urgently
needed, and for such purpose what more effective remedy can be found than justly celebrated
PricKly Ash. Bitters
A Remedy that Has Proved Its Value For Blood, Kidney and Bowel Disorders
In a Brilliant Record of Cures Performed.
It is the RIGHT medicine for such purpose, the best and greatest blood purifier, system
cleanser and regulator. It combines the fine tonic properties of a kidney medicine, stom
ach, liver and blood purifier with a genial regulating influence in the bowels. It will gently
urge the vital organs to a better and more complete performance of their duties, give them
strength and tone and restore healthy activity throughout the body. When the system has
'been cleared of obstructions and the kidneys resume fully their office of Purifying the
Blood, the general condition takes an upward turn. Appetite and digestion are improved,
the eyes are brighter, the hollow cheeks fill out, the complexion loses that sallow, muddy
cast, giving place to a clear skin and ruddy glow. These are the signals of returning
health, and they bring that thrill and joy of living and interest in life's duties that only
those in perfect health enjoy.

Mr. J. W. Temple, manager for
the Cumberland Telephone & Tele
graph Co. of the local exchanges
and county toll lines, was notified
last week that he had been pro
meted to be the company's special
agent in this section of the State.
Thirteen years ago on the 13th of
September Mr. Temple took charge
ot the Union City exchange with 13
subscribers. By the force of per
sistency and capable management
he has to-day a list of nearly six
hundred subscribers, with 13 opera
tors, exchanges at Troy and Rives
and toll lines extending through
the county in every direction. The
company has just recently read
justed the city wires, replaced the
old poles with large and substantial
new ones. They now own their of
fice building, which is furnished
throughout with antique oak fix
tures and a new apparatus supply
ing a metallic circuit, inese new
arrangements are not quite com
plete, but in a few weeks they will
be ready to take the place of the old
exchange appliances and then Un

years ago. His character and stand

lished, and he epjoys the highest
esteem of his neighbors'.
We congratulate Mr. Temple in
this change. His duties, we pre
sume, will carry him to various
points where he is to look after the
company's interests. His successor,
we understand, will be Mr. R. L.
Carter, the present assistant. Mr.
Carter has been in the novice here
for several years. He is a young
man, capable and worthy in every
way, and we believe will fill the po
sition as well as any man they
could name. Mr. Carter came here
from Clinton, Ky., and has demon
strated that be is a workman ol
ability and a good citizen.
The change will go into effect id
a few weeks.

it to successful completion. Frank
Watts is a product of Union City
