Quit Breaking Baby's BANK Nearly every father, with the high and noble purpose of providing for Baby's educational future, opens a Bank Account—Tin Banks, Dime Banks, Paper Box Banks, and regular Savings Banks are brought into requisition; and for a time the fund for Baby's education grows like Jonah's Gourd Vine. But a tight time comes—one of those temporary embarrassments we all have—and father BREAKS BABY'S BANK and the fact sadly remains that it generally "stays broke." IT'S SAFER, SURER, MORE SENSIBLE & MORE PROFITABLE to avail yourself of the plan offered by the Educational Endowment Company. This Company puts at fest once for all the question of your child's educational future, helps you to do something almost impossible of your own initiative, relieves the family of endless worry; and secures the co-operation of your children in the carrying out of the plan to give them "the main chance" in life.

Subsequently the Postmaster General and Secretary of Agricul ture requested the Governor to designate the road on which the money should be expended and he on November 25th, advised them that he had selected the road from Greenwood to Carroll ton, commencing at Greenwood and building toward the hills, and on the sanie date advised Dr. Henderson to that effect. The road from Greenwood to the hills appealed to the Govern or because of its location in two counties and would be an object lesson for road building both in the Delta and the hills and for the further reason of the activity and energy of the Greenwood Busi ness League in bringing the mat ter first to his attention and solic iting the designation of the road indicated for the expenditure, promising to provide the $20,000 required to be expended in con nection with the Government's appropriation. • The Business League, its Presi dent, Dr. T.

The Secretary also has up with the traffic officials the question of milling in transit rates with a prospect of securing same, in the event a mill and elevator is locat ed at this point. R W E T W M I A Ward T SCATES NEW QUARTERS. R Scates Bros, have moved into their new quarters at the corner of Market and Howard streets, where they have decidedly the prettiest and most up-to-date re freshment parlor in the State. They have installed a handsome and costly soda fountain outfit, which is as pretty as a picture, and the building has been thor oughly renovated and new' and attractive fixtures installed. We commend these young gentlemen for the enterprise and taste dis played in fitting up their superb new quarters, and wish for them continued success. NO MORE CALOMEL FOR THEM. Goar, S wife, G Smith one Foust. J W Bass. and G Dr. ton, Dr. P G Persons Who Have Tried Dodson's Liver Tone Find It Safer Than Calomel and Just as Sure. Dodson' Liver Tone is a vegetable substitute for calomel that starts the liver to work just as successfully as calomel does, and hundreds of persons have stopped using the powerful drug calomel to use Dodson's Liver Tone, mild vegetable liquid, instead. Calomel often shakes up the liver too much, and brings on bad after-effects and some times salivation—a terrible condition. S. L. Raines drug store sells Dod son's Liver Tone at fifty cents per large bottle, and guarantees it to be harm less to both children and grown-upB. Remember this guarantee and try a bottle, next time your liver gets lazy. ner. Y W Ward, T Bruner, J Shell, P A Insure your Cotton and Cot ton Seed with W. M. Peteet. * - A U*. Mi A; ; t; BISHOP H.
