Mr. C. C. Mengel, President Mengel Box Co.,
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.

Death of J. N. Bradshaw. '
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.
Mr. Bradshaw was first married
to Mary Elizabeth Ramsey in 1866
and to the union six children were
given, four of whom survive as fol
lows: Mrs. Robt Batts, Mrs. Geo.
Allen, Mrs. Nora Herring and. W. P.

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. : . ; '
