By taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
vegetable Compound
The following letter from Mrs,
Orville Rock will prove how unwise
it is for women to submit to the
dangers of a surgical operation when
it may be avoided by taking Lydia
E. rinkham's Vegetable Compound.
She was four weeks in the hospital
and came home suffering worse
than before.
Here is her own statement.

a long time. My
physician treated
me for seven months
without much relief
and at last sent me
to Ann Arbor for
an operation. I was
there four weeks and
came home suffering

My mother advised
me to try Lydia

Morgan Street Improvements.
Messrs. G. W. Dodson and II. B.
Horner have moved their street grad
ing and concrete paving forces from the
East Main addition to Morgan street,
or that portion of Morgan running
from Dr. Nailling's home on Main
street to Mayor Coble's residence on
College street. The street has been
well graded and made wider, the old
fences removed and men are now en
gaged laying an up-to-date concrete
walk from Vine to College.
These gentlemen own the old Walk
er property, purchased from Mrs. W.
B. Sowell, the Charlie Wells property
and removed the buildings to Baptist
ville, and have recently bought the
eastern section of the northern half of
the old Alex Brackin property. This
gives the owners something like a
dozen splendid residence lots facing
the improved street, which we under
stand will soon be placed on the mar
ket. ,
These gentlemen are hustlers and
when they say "move," the lots will
have to go, and they will be more than
apt to sell before the improvements are
completed, as the location is ideal
right in the center of the city, con
venient to the Public School and the
Methodist, Baptist and Cumberland
Mayor Coble has recently transform
ed the A. J. Corum house into a $3,500
two-story building, C. W. Miles, Jr., is
completing a modern $4,500 house,
both on Morgan, and it is reported no
lots will be sold in. this section unless
the purchaser is prepared to build a
nice house.

a life-long Christian and a charter

Killed With Gun.
One of the greatest tragedies or acci
dents happened Saturday, the 11th inst.,
about 3 o'clock at the home of A. P.
Lunsford. His son, Claud, was shot
and instantly killed by Lexie Harris, &
neighbor boy about twenty years old.
Harris wanted to borrow Claud's gun.
He told him he could get it. Harris
then went to the house, got the gun
went back to the barn where Claud was
fixing feed, only one other party being
present It seems. Only a few friendly
words were passed between the two boys,
when Harris remarked, "I am going to
shoot you," raised the gun and fired.
Harris'claims it was an accident, but it
seems that the neighbors and family are
both undecided as to whether it was an
accident or done intentionally. It cer
tainly is a mistake about Harris being
an orphan. He is the son of Harve
Harris, who lives near Caruthersville,
Mo. . A. P. Litnsford.

The making of wine is said to have

One of their earliest kings, Jensheed,
who, it is said, was only five or six
generations from Noah, was the dis

"He waa Immoderately fond of
grapes," aays the narratl re. which la
found in 8ir Johh Malcolm's "His'tory
of Persia," "and desired to preserve
some, which were placed in a large
vessel and lodged in a vault for future
use. When the vessel waa opened
the grapes had fermented and their
Juice in this state was ao acid that
the king believed It mut: be poison
ous. "He had some vessela filled with it
and 'Poison' written upon each. These
were placed in bla room. It happened
that one of hia favorite ladles waa af
fected with nervoua headache; the
pain distracted her so much that she
desired - death. Obaen ag a vessel
with 'Polaon' written on It, she took
it and swallowed lta contenta. The
wine, for such it had become, over
powered the lady, who fell down into
a Bound Bleep and awoke much re
freshed. "Delighted with thla remedy, she re
peated the doses ao oftn that the
monarch's polaon waa all drunk. He
aoon diacovered thla and forced the
lady to confess what she had done. A
quantity of wine waa made and Jen
aheed and all hia court drank of the
new beverage, which from the circum
stance that led to lta dlacovery ia to
thla day known in Persia by the name
of Zeher-e-khoosh, or 'tht delightful

When Marshal MacMahon .waa
