EVERYTHING James Little Stronger From Water to Milk." Thi is the wordinsr on a little folder sent out by the J. W. Barber . . -v v . -ft m Advertising Agency, ot isostou, mass. It, is to finnnnnce the removal of the firm into new and much better equipped offices for the transaction of their extensive and ever increasing business. The significance of the lan guage employed is that the J. . Barber Advertising Agency have moved from No. 7, Water street, to the Penn Mutual building, No. 24, Milk street. This is their third move in the thirty-eight years of their bus iness career and it is believed that they have gone to the best office building in Boston today. To auote the language of the Brook lyn Standard Union: " Mr. Barber's success can be explained best, perhaps, by the one word, "Reli ability," and he exacts from his clients the same token. There are few adver tising agencies probably not another one which can say as he does: "For li02 and 1903 business not a dollar contracted for remains unpaid, and not a dollar there was seventy-nin cents in the year 1903 has been charged to loss." Such conduct of business, where mil lions of dollars are involved, is remark able enough in these- piping days of etrenuousness to comment upon. - A Heavy Load. To lift that load off of the stomach take Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. It digests what you eat. Sourstomach,belching,gas onstomach and all disorders of the stomach that are curable, are iustantly relieved and perma nently cured by the use of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. S. P. Storrs. a druggist at 297 Main street, New Britain, Conn., says: "Kodol Dyspepsia Cure is giving such universal satis faction and is so surely becoming the posi tive relief and subsequent cure for this dis tressing ailment, I feel that I am always sure to satisfy and gratify my customers by recommending it to them. I write this to show how well the remedy is spoken of here." Kodol Dyspepsia Cure was discovered after years of scientific experiments and will posi tively cure all stomach trouble.

SAMUEL WATKINS. THE HELLO GIRL Some Things for Patrons of the Tele phone Exchange to Reflect Upon. Few persons understand the work ings of a telephone" exchange and therefore are not in position to np- jivviuvv tllC 11 Id?, KIl LU7 111- ILKJ 111 and sympathize with her in her work. The following from the Statesville Landmark may give them a clearer understandms: of her duties and make them more patient and reason able in dealing with her: Considered rightly, the "hello" girl treads no primrose path. Did you ever stop to think that you are not the only one who turns in a call to Central during the day? Bless your life, no! Here in Statesville between 8 o'clock in the morning and 6 in the evening an average of about 3,500 calls are made. That means that during the 8 hours that each of the girls is on duty she answers about G calls a minute or one every ten seconds, or, when both are on duty at the same time, you can split those figures in two. That's an average, but when everybody gets in the notion to use the 'phone at the same time, as often happens, it's worse than that much worse. If you were in the "hello" girl's place then, sitting before the board with the receiver clamped to your head, you'd wish you were away and away where there aren't any telephones. You Bee, it's like this: When you ring, a little number drops down and stays until you are given the connection you want, and it does no sort of good for you to keep ringing in fact it causes de lay, for you can't be connected while you are are ringing and so the operator goes ahead and answers some other call. She's the "hello" girl. If you are close by and listen when she is answering calls during a rush it sounds like this: "hello heHoelloelloellelloelloello hell ! Indeed it does. So be patient. If you don't get con nection immediately don't allow your self to think that the "hello" girl is, per chance, asleep, or gone on a journey, or that ehe cannot hear. Just consider that she is dreadfully busy and is doing her level best. It is more than likely 'steen dozen other calls are being turned in at the same time. NOTICE!

Lassiter & Co SHARP-GRAVES. Marriage of Miss Nannie Sharp and fir. Charles C. Graves at Home of the Bride in Vance Connty, Wednes day, Sept. 26th. The marriage of Mr. Charles Carroll Graves to Miss Nancy Forney Sharp was solemnized at the home of the bride's parents, Capt. and Mrs. John H. Sharp, at ''Pool's Rock," Wednesday evening, Oct. 2th. The Rev. Beverly Eggleston, pastor of the Third Presbyterian church of Richmond, Va., performed the cere mony. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Howard Sharp. The groom is the eon of Mr. and Mrs. C. Lynn Graves, of Somerset, Va. Miss Winnifred Washington Watts, of Portsmouth, V a., was the maul of honor, and Mr. Alan W. Graves, of Philadelphia, Pa., acted as best man. Among the guests in attendance were Miss Crisey GUI, of Norfolk, Va., and Miss Lois Wright, and Mrs. Clifford Wayne, of Portsmouth, Va., girlhood friends of the bride, and Mr. Victor T. Boatwright and Mr. T. Walter Matthews, of the same city. The old manor house at Pool's Rock was garlanded and festooned with ferns, pines aud cedar, trellised with bamboo, while here and there was entwined foliage to which Nature in its breath of autumn had lent its glorious shades and tints. Following the wedding through which echoed the dulcet strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march and recessional on the piano with violin accompaniment, came the dance, and in the merry glide and whirl, happy greetings were exchanged and joyful benediction and best wishes were heaped upon the newly married couple. After the reception the bride and groom left on a tour of several Southern cities and will bring their honeymoon to a close at the home of the groom's parents. Mr. and Mrs. Graves will make their home in Portsmouth, Va., where Mr. Graves is identified with the Seaboard Air Line. They will be at home to their friends in November. ATTENDANT. flothers Praise It. Mothers everywhere praise One Minute Cough Core for the suffering it ha relieved and the lives of their little ones it has saved A certain cure for coughs, croup and whoop ing rongh. A. L. Spafford, Postmaster, of Cheater, Mich., says: "Our little girl was unconscious from strangulation during a sudden and terrible attack of croup. One Minute Cough Cure quickly relieved and cured her and I cannot praise it too highly." One Minute Cough Cure relieves coughs, makes breathing easy, cuts out phlegm, draws out inflammation, and removes every cause of a cough and strain ou lungs. Hold at Parker's Two Drag Stores. THE WONDER OF WONDERS AWHEEL. Prodigious Porthos and His Flying Bike. Among the altogether new and etartiius feature loadstones announced by the irreat Adam Forepaugh and Sella Brothers United Shows to signalize their daT'e visit to Hen derson on Saturday, November 5th, Pro digious Porthos, the Parisian Cycling won der, Tvhose phenomenal feat of leaping on his bii-yele across a chasm fifty feet wide has already electrified Europe, is attracting the lion's share of attention and discussion. None of our readers having as yet seen this heroically phenomenal performance, the fol lowing summary thereof, taken from a de tailed description, accompanied bv a half page illustration, pnblished in the New York Evening Journal of March 6th last, will be found of general interest: The bicycle used is of the ordinary safety pattern, except that two stationary pockf't stirrups to hold the rider's feet are substi tuted in place of pedals, which, as it will be apparent, would be worse than useless. Thus mounted and grasping the handle-liars with a grip of steel, Porthos starts from a platform forty-five feet from the ground. Before him lies, at an incline of forty-five degrees, a board path, less than three feet wide and a hundred feet in length, which at the bottom ends in a eharp upward curve, directly in line with and separated by a break of some fifty feet from another plat form ten feet above the ground. A gentle shove from an attendant aud Porthos is off on a brief but fearsome journey, the ending of wh.ich no man, not even himself can fore tell. Should his wheel swerve a single inch from the required direc tion, or he, for the fraction of a second lose unflinching coolness, absolute perfection of control, concentration of instantaneous observation and supreme self-possession.deadly disaster rides with him. So rapidly does he gather speed in his furi ously fleetdesnt that he flashes like a misty streak across the sight, and almost in the t winkling of an eye has reached the summit of the curve referred to, and he and his wheel soar upward and headlong high in air. The momentum decreases until they seem to hover in space, then the bicycle dives down ward and, directed by an instantaneous deli- cateness of manipulation, imperceptable to tne dazed and dumfounded onlookers, lands on the receiving platform, which its two wheels must strike at practically the same moment, as otherwise there would be a dreadful finish, right then aud there. But seemingly superhuman nerve and skill have triumphed, and Porthos rides placidly down a gentle incline, after what might not inap propriately be termed a race with death.

He paid same price for both paints. He used six gallons of lead-and-zinc, 1 gallons barytes-and-zinc. He paid $18 for painting lead-and-zinc. f 30 for painting barytes-and-zinc. The total cost of the lead-and-zinc job was f27; the total coet of the barytes-and-zinc job was f 54. He didn't know he wa buying barytes: the dealer told him that paint was as good aa Devoe.
