At the meeting of the city council
on Tuesday night Aid. D. W. Ramsaur
of Ihe fourth ward tendered his resigna

of his successor in the spring election.
Alderman Ramsaur is one of the
younger and more progressive of Pa
latka's prominent business men, and he
feels that in justice to his private busi
ness interests he can no longer serve the
city. He has been on the council three
years, and is one of the hold-over alder
men. He tenders bis resignation at this
time in order that provision can be made
in the coming election for a successor
for his unexpired term. There will ho
general regret in Palatka that Mr. Ram

A Common Cold.
We claim that if catchinir cold could
be avoided gome of the most dancerona
and fatal diseases would never be
heard of. A cold often forms a culture
bed for germs of infectious disease.
Consumption, pneumonia. diDbtheria
and scarlet fever, four of the most dan
gerous and fatal diseases, are of this
class. The culture bed formed by the
cold favors the development of the
germs of these diseases, that would not
otherwise find lodgment. There is
little danger, however, of anv of these
diseases being contracted when a good
expectorant cough medicine like Cham
berlain . t ough Keniedv is used. It
cleans out these culture beds that favor
the development of the eerms of these
diseases. That is why this remedy ha
proved so universally successful in pre
venting pneumonia. It not onlv cure
your cold quickly, bnt minimizes Ihe
risk of contracting these dangerous dis
eases. For sale by Ackerman-Stewart
