Those interested in looking up the spot where Japan is paralyz ing the Russians are invited to call at the Free Press office and exam ine our map of (he world. It is an interesting thing to study just no vp. The Washington Tost wants to know what is a fire proof build ing." According to Mr. Bryan it is the Kansas City platform, remarks the Raleigh Post. All the millions of cssh in the vaults and safes escaped destruc tion by the fire, so the loss by our Baltimore friends is thus reduced very materially. Yet the loss is severe. Recent reports from the stricken city says that Baltimore will not seek aid outside the city and State, and that rebuilding will begin as soon as the debris, is removed. BUILDING BY LIES. There is no use denying that in some of the towns where there is a desire for northern visitors there is a tendency to lie about what is to be enjoyed This is not only en tirely unnecessary, but positively injurious. The visiting invalid is not disposed to have a lengthy correspondence, and yet desires to keep friends posted as to the cli mafic conditions actually experi enced. He knows that up north the mercury has dropped to per haps 40 degrees below zero in his own town, and vvnile he does not like it, he is gratified to know that where he is it is IS to 20 above zero, mark. lie thinks that a:ood enough news to have to im part, but when he takes up Irs paper and learns from its columns that for booming purposes it is re corded that the temperature has Perfect Confidence. Where there used to be a feeling of uneasiness and worry in the house hold when a child showed symptoms of croup, there is now perfect confi dence. This is owing to the uniform success of Chamberlain's Co gh Remedy in the treatment of that disease. Mrs. M. ' I. Basford, of Poolesville, Md., in speaking of her experience in the use of that remedy says: "I have a world of confidence in Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for I have used it with perfe t success. My child Garland is subject to severe attacks of croup and it always gives him prompt relief." For sale by Underwood Pharmacy and Sadelson &' Flint. ESCAPED AN AWFUL FATE. Mr. H. Haggins. of Melbourne; Fla , writes My doctor told me I had con sumption and nothing could be done lor me. I was given up to die. The oiler of a free trial bottle of Dr. King's New Dis covery for Consumption, induced me to try it. Results were startling. I am now on the roal to recovery and owe all to Dr King's New Discovery.

Tell the truth about our town and let it go at that. It is good enough and will draw, but to lie about what people can get is only to dis appoint and disgust them, when they find that all the glowing ac- counts that go beyond the truth are simply hot air. The result is the would be visitor does not come, or if on hand does, not stay, and so the record "is " not as good as last year more houses empty." I'ake a hint, you would-be town builders, before you become known as town killers. Pictures of what does not exist are printed lies, and like chickens they "come home to roost." LETTER TO B. E GEYER. SOUTHERN PINES, N C. Dear Sir: When you can buy paint for ltss than Devoe; don't; save your money Mr. Aaron Higgins, Plainfield, N. J., always used 15 gallons of paint for his house; Devoe took 1 1 Mr. Ezra Rathmell, Williamsport, Pa., always used 11; Devoe took 6. v Mr. Burt Young, Girard, Pa., al ways ustd a gallon for certain rooms; took half as much Devoe. Mr Nathaniel Barber, Canton, N Y, bought 12 Devoe- used less than 6. You can always buy paint for less than Devoe- don't; save your money. The wearing counts the same way and doubles the difference.
