" While in the army I was poisoned in wardly with poison oak, and I did not get well for 15 years.

When I had finished taking the first bottle the pimples began to disappear from my body, and after I had taken three bottles I was well.

CriitchUeld Replies to the Re publican's "Kx-Demorrat." Some one writing in the Union Re publican of this week over the name of "ex-Democrat' makes many malic iously false statements. Prominent among his wild remarks we find the following: "Paul, lie of the noble strain, direct from Abraham Lincoln, an "old liner" from "far b.-ick," far back that no man ever knew he was a Republican until he was c m date for Treasurer a few back." The man who gave exoressio.. to ii. above lie was either a renegade Dem ocrat, toreigner, or failed to ie..d the public prints of the past twenty yen s Onthe2ti.h day of May, l.vtl, the Union Republican itself "says: "Paul W. Crutehfield has le. mail agent on the Salem Branch Kail roaa, in the place of Mr. J. p. v,.st resigned. No belter appointment could have been made. Mr. Crutcli- tieiu is a true and tried Kepublicau. and a most efficient man." Seventeen years and three months have elapsed since the date this item was written by the Republican, and yet this same Paul came from farther back than that date, and he has other proofs equally as strong of his eai Iv and continued allegiance to the 1U--publican party, and that is more than many of the present office-holding crew can say, and we would suggest that if the Republican desires to retain its subscribers it would do well to see that its corps of ex-Democrats stick a little closer by the truth. P. W. Ckutchfiki.d. I. S.

Last week a farmer hailed Mr. Blank (who is one of the insur gents' chiefs) on the street, and here is what passed between them; Farmer I have in a load of tine melons, Mr, Hlank; I want to sell you U. fine one; they are of the new kind. Mr. Hlank What do you mean by the new kind? Farmer I mean that they are prin cipally old-time Republican Insurgent melnus, from principle only, and if a man who is half-breed, turncoat or a new convert will eat some of these melons he will feel like a true Repub lican from principle a little while anyway, Mr. Hlank Well, Mr. Farmer. If you can pick me out one dozen that will not endorse new eon verts, turn coats and foreigners. I will treat the Courthouse ring, and if you have a hue one that will lie still when you hold a piece of pie to its nose you can take that one with the balance of your ioaa to tne u. s. llistrlet Attorney's ollice. Melons of that kind are hadlv needed there. SHKRIFF AND TRKA.SURKR. "A Voice from ('leinmonsvllle" Mukes Nominations. Editors Sentinel Ci.kmmonsvim.k, Aug. 2,'t.

Kingery and Miss Mollie .1. Lucas are the names of the contracting par ties. The ceremony was jicr formed in the parlor at the Rierson House, on Liberty street, by Rev. Dr. Creasy, in the presenile of a few friends, about midnight. It was the old, old story the pa rents of the young lady, for some reason, objected to the match, hence the runaway. The couple arrived here on the N. & W. train at 9:40. There was some delay in getting the license. The bride, who gave her age at 21 years, is very good looking. The groom, we are informed, is about and formerly worked in a mill at Roanoke, but is now engaged iu farm ing.
