Dear Sir : Replying to your letter dated July 23, 1 9 1 9, con cerning construction of levee from Tiptonville, Tenn., to mouth of Obion River, I have to state that with the passage of the Flood Control Act the Commission has felt that under the limi tations of that act Congress expects the completion of the con trolling levee line prior to considering any new projects, and for hat reason the Commission is compelled at present to defer ac tion on construction of any levees in that locality.

' James Newton Bradshaw died at Elbridge, after a residence there fof a few months, Sept. 24, 1919, aged 85 years. . The remains were brought to Union City for burial and interred at East View with services here by Rev. J. Randall Farris.

When The Day Is Over When the household cares and the worries of everyday life have dragged you down, made you un happy, and there is noth- ing in life but headache, backache and worry, turn to the right prescription, one gotten up by Dr. Pierce fifty years ago. Everything growing out of the ground seems intended for some use in establish ing natural conditions. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., long since found out what is naturally best for women's diseases. He learned it all through treating thou sands of cases. The result of his studies was a medicine called Dr. Pierce's Favor ite Prescription. This medicine is made of vegetable growths that nature surely intended for backache, headache, weak ening, bearing-down pains, irregularities, pelvic inflammations, and for the many disorders common to women in all ages of life. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is made of lady's slipper root, black cohosh root, unicorn root, blue cohosh root and Oregon grape root. Dr. Pierce knew, when he first made this standard medi cine, that whiskey and morphine are in jurious, and so he has always kept them out of his remedies. Women who take this'standard remedy know that in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription they are getting a cafe woman's tonic so good that druggists everywhere sell it, in liquid or tafebtfona. : . ; ' 55853 The Commercial let It Rest.
