LOCAL COAL SEALERS DISCUSS COAL SITUATION AND MARKET CONDITIONS Our version of the coal , situation as it now looks-and exists is that there is a possibility of the miners' strike extending into the fail months which will put the northern markets for domestic cqal open and for prompt shipment the factories are now buy ing southern coa at fabulous -prices, thereby causing the mines in opera tion to produce straight run of the mines, or steam coal, charging the same price as lump. The car shortage is looming up as a disturbing element as is also the contemplated railroad strike, all of which is a menace to the coal indus try. ; s. Therefore, don't you ono and all think it advisable to place your coal orders with us now while we can take care of you at fair prices. We are still handling Bon Air, Cumberland Block and also the fa mous Blocton, Alabama, which is low in ash and highest in heat units of any coal that comes to this market. CITIZENS ICE AND COAL CO.

W. C. T. U. . Mrs. Seid Waddell was hostess to very pleasant meeting of the W. C. T. U. Friday afternooD, May 26, with Mrs. Chas. Miles, Sr., leader. As the department of medical temperance was to be discussed, she selected 8th chapter of Matt, and in an impressive way, spoke of the need of and service of physicians, but the great , need of the One Physician, "who heals all our in firmities." Our State Supt. Medical Temperance, Mrs. W. J. Caldwell, of Rives, then gave some startling facts of the perni' cious means resorted to by the antl prohibitionist to create a taste for nor- cotica among children. Little Sarah Chapel's readings were very much en joyed. She gave as an encore" from Les Miserables, Jean Valjean and the Candlesticks, in an original and pleas ing manner. A short business session was held before the close of the program. Rumors in regard to increased sale of moonshine whiskey aroused indig nation, and a committee was appoiotd to appeal to the law abiding citizenship for help to get rid of this nefarious business, A plan to put in a Sunday School Film ServiCej for Surjday afternoons in tne riay Mouse, already secured, was discussed. The ministers and mission nary societies had already been asked to co-operate arid other organizations will be solicited. Closing with the Aarouic bfnedic- tion, a social hour with refreshments was enjoyed. We were glad to have as visitors Mesdames St. John Waddell and Ella Maloner of Memphis. A Kind Act. Last Sunday afternoon one of the prisoners at our jail silently ex pressed his gratitude to one of our teachers who had a few days before taken two of her pupils to visit them. by slipping a dollar to her while she was handing him some literature. Somebody did a golden deed; Somebody proved a friend in need; Somebody sang a beautiful e' ng; . Somebody smiled the whole day long; Somebody thought, " 'Tis sweet to live;" Somebody said, "I'm glad to give;" Somebody fought a gallant -light; Somebody lived to shield the right; and we can, too.

White. On June 4, 1922, the dark angel of death entered the home of Mrs. J. F. White and claimed for its own her loving husband, Mr. John White. He had been in ill health for some time. However, death was sudden and unexpected. All the children and their families hovered over the bed of their dying father, and all that medical aid and loving hands could dd, was done, with no avail. He fled to the Great Beyond like a candle go ing out, not a struggle, not a mur mur, but like the sun going down. He was born on Apr. 10, 1856. He had lived a Christian life for many years, fnd Number Seven loses a no ble citizen, a kind neighbor and a faithful friend. He was married to Miss Cordie Smith in 1884.

The Tom Thumb Wedding was given last evening to a large audience and all present expressed themselves as being highly pleased. All of the people in the production did excellently.and their quaint antics while impersonating the grown-ups added much to the amuse ment of the audience.

No bad results have been reported to the State Veterinarian's office as a re sult of animals eating mildewed clover either greeu in the field or dried in the form of hay. We personally know of quite a number of animals that have eaten it without any bad results. It is the . opiniou of the writer that this mouldy growth on the leaves of red clover is harmless to live stock. This opinion is based on the writer's pro fessional knowledge of moulds or mil dew in general and their relation to producing diseases in animals indirectly through the medium of the feed. We advise that the clover be cut and cured for hay as has been done in former years when the mildew was absent. Department of Agriculture Bulletin. Christian Church.

CARDUI HELPED REGAIN STRENGTH Alabama Lady Was Sick For Three Years, Suffering Pain, Nervous and Depressed Read Her Own Story of Recovery. Paint Rock, Ala. Mrs. C. M. Steean, tt near here, recently related the fol lowing interesting account of her re covery: "I wa3 In a weakened con dltlon. I was sick three years In bed, offering a great deal of pain, weak, nervous, depressed. I was so weak, I couldn't walk across the floor; Just had to lay and my little ones do the work. I was almost dead. I tried every thing I heard of, and a number of doctors. Still I didn't get any relief. I couldn't eat, and slept poorly. I believe If I hadn't heard of and taken Cardui I would have died. I bought six bottles, after a neighbor told me what it did for her. "I began to eat and Bleep, began to gain my strength and am now well and strong. I haven't had any trou ble since ... I sure can testify to the good that Qkrdui did me. I don't think there is a better tonic made and I believe it saved my life." For over 40 years, thousands of wo men have used Cardui successfully, in the treatment of many womanly ailments. If you suffer as these womon did, take Cardui. It ma? help you, too. At all druggists. E 85 Palm Beach Suits Cool Silky. Mohair Tropical Worsteds Well made and faultless in fit, all sizes and models!

Per- j sonally I prefer a game between our boys, schools or neighboring towns ' to one by professionals. The former ! show as a rule the school or town spi- rit while the professionals work more like a machine set in moti'en. The games we have had so far are noted for the kindly feeling and lack of wrangling. There never was a place for the latter. Some of the games have been terribly one-sided, due to some of the teams' superior strength, yet the games go on and are enjoyed. Like everything else, there is great space for improvement and I beg to mention one of the biggest gaps I have noticed. They set 4:30 as the time to begin. They seldom start be fore 4:45, then the worst of all Is the waste of time during the game. They seem to lack pep, ginger or "get-up." In changing from at the bat to the field they will throw, pitch and drag along like men of seventy years, all of which to my mind is the fault of the umpire in not calling a batter promptly. Tuesday afternoon the game, lasted for at least two hours and thirty or forty-five minutes, which will kill any game on earth. It lasted so long that the umpire called In a substftute while, he could go to supper. The game should have Clagett Go been played in not more than one hour and forty-five minutes.
