C. A. Fun day Afternoon. Sunday afternoon at 5 o'clock a very interesting meeting was held at the Young Men's Christian Associa tion hall. It was open to both ladies and gentlemen, and by the time for opening a large number had gathered. Mr. Hicks, the local Secretary, pre sided. The music was lively and in spiring. The solo by Mr. Kenneth Pfohl, which was well rendered, added much to the attractiveness of the hour. Mr. W. M. Lewis, State Secretary of the Y. M. C. A.'s of North and South Carolina, made the address, using as a basis the scriptural ac count of the healing of Naaman, the Syrian. The lesson drawn from this account was the importance of little things. Mr. Lewis showed how all were en dowed with some talent, and God re quired them to use it, in the best pos sible way. He described the work now being done by the Young Men's Christian Associations in the army, as one work in which all could en gage. Mr. Lewis has been closely con nected with the army work since war was declared, and his description of camp life showed plainly the positive need for this work. He told of the work being done among the North Carolina troops, by the State Com mittee, of their tent with the second regiment, and the many privileges of fered the soldier boys. The tent is a large one, about 24x40 feet, equipped with chairs, organ, tables, games, reading matter of all kinds, bibles, hymn books, correspondence tables, where free writing material is furnish ed.

Mr. Smoak ex pects to solicit subscriptions and he feels confident that he will meet with success. A new track will induce our dealers in horse . flesh to purchase some hne steppers for VV inston. This would mean good races every few weeks. John Coleman has the fastest horse in Winston. Smoak & MeCreary have a pacer that makes very good time.

The latter replies that the State is short only eighty of fur nishing the full quota of about 3,800. The General further says he can raise twenty regiments in a week, of new or ganizations. No one can im agine who it is at Washington who gives currency to these persistent slanders of North Carolina. Gov. Russell, in a dispatch to the Associated Press, denies the accuracy of the statements by the War Depart ment that North Carolina has been slow in offering volunteers and has not raised its quota of troops as called for in the President's two proclama tions. He adds: "Our three regi ments were organized promptly and large number,have been offered in ex cess of quota. ' ' Could patriotism farther go?

Horrible as aro tho conditions which Contagious Blood Toison produces, tho ef fects of the treatment universally prescribed by the doctors aro even, more dread ful than the disease itself. Hoping to counteract tho poison already in tho blood, they fill their patient with mercury and potash, the most powerful mineral poisons.

Besides doing the disease no good, mercury and potash do the system irreparable harm, causing tho bones to acho and stiffen often the hair will fall by the handful, and when these drugs aro taken aa long as the doctors require it, the finger-nails will drop off, and a complete wreck of the system results. This is no overdrawn picture, for the world is to-day full of these hobbling mercurial wrecks. I was afflicted with Blood Poison, and the best doctorB did me no flood, though I took their treatment faithfully. In fact, I seemed to fret worse nil the while. 1 took almost every Bo-called blood remedy, but they did not seem to reach the disease, and had no effect whatever. 1 was disheartened, for it seemed that I would never be cured. Upon C advice of a friend I took S. S. S., and befian to improve. I continued the medicine, and it cured me completely, building up my health and increasing my appetite.

It is like self -destruction to take the physicians' treat-1 ment for Contagious Blood Poison; their record with the ample proof of this. Those who fill themselves with potash and mercury aro forging their own chains and shackles. Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) is the only cure, because it acts on the only correct principle that of forcing out every particle of the poison, and forever ridding the system of it. No other remedy can do this, because they all contain minerals. S. S. S. is the only blood remedv ernarantend rnrlv and One Thousand Dollars will be paid for proof that it contains a particle oi pocasn, mercury, or any other mineral.
