Calomel is a F- rm of Mercury, and if It Stays in tee Human System, Its Effect is Terrible. Ask Your Doctor. Any physician will tell you that mer cury, if it remains in the body, will soften and rot the bones, a disease doc tors call necrosis, of the bones. Calo mel is a form of mercury, and to keep clear of danger it's a safe plan to take no calomel at all, especially as there is a better remedy. Both children and grown people will find a perfect substitute for calomel in Dodson's Liver Tone, a pleasant vege table tonic that induces the liver to act and which has never had any bad after effects. In fact Dodson's Liver Tone will do every thing that calomel does without any of the dangers of calomel. A large bottle costs only fifty cents, and S. L. Raines drug store will re fund your money if you are not satis fied. .Jf*, * V 1 VC' ■ s': j l j J » * ffi I ' V' * * v*~ /V •t » * it y -\ \s v ^5 PocahcSifas % dean.

MISSIONARY MEETING, The monthly business meeting of the Methodist Missionary Society was well attended and all felt that it was good to be there. Mexico and the negroes in the south was the subject studied, and was spec ially interesting due to the present unrest in Mexico. Special prayer was offered for the safety and welfare of our Missionaries at exposed points. Our school in Mexico and for the negro in the United States were located and opportunity for service among these needy ones was discussed and a fair attitude toward them assumed. Mrs. C. W. Crockett, our delegate to the Home Mission Annual Conference at Macon, Miss., read a splendid report and was urged to submit it for pub lication in our city papers, which she very reluctantly consented to do.
