THEDFORD'S !buckdraught| THE GREAT IrJHinr MEDICINE Thedford's Black-Draught has saved doctors* bills for more than sixty years. For the common fam ily ailments, such as constipation, indigestion, hard colds, towel com plaints, chills and fever, bilious ness, headaches and other lib* complaints no other medicine is necessary. It invigorates and reg ulates the liver, assists digestion, stimulates action of the kidneys, purifies the blood, and purges the bowels of foul accumulations. It cures liver complaint, indigestion, sour stomach, dizziness, chills, rheumatic pains, sideache, back ache,kidney troubles, constipation, diarrhoea, biliousness, piles, hard colds and headache. Every drug gist has Thedford's Black-Draught in 25 cent packages and in mam moth size for $1.00. Never accept a substitute. Insist on having the original made by the Chattanooga Medicine Company. I believe Thedford's Black-Draught i* the but medicine on earth. It is good for any and everything. I have a family of twelve children, and for fow years I have kept them on foot/ and healthy with no doctor but Black Draught. A. J. GREEN, lllewan, La. Counter Catalogue 10 cents.

(Crowded out last week.) Several fine rains have been falling and this is considered to be the finest spring we have had for some years.

A school landjinspector was on the Flat last Thursday with Smith the liveryman from Hot Springs, and took dinner with Geo. Tice. The cattle men .had a round-up meeting at the old^Warren ranch Mon day. GRATOS. Wanted.

This is not a gentle word—but when you think how liable you are not to purchase for 75c the only remedy uni versally known and a remedy that has had the largest sale of any medicine in the world since 1868 for the cure and treatment of Consumption and Throat and Lung troubles without losing its great popularity all these years, you will be thankful we called your atten tion to Boschee's German Syrup. There are so many ordinary cough Remedies made by druggists and others that are cheap and good for light colds perhaps, but for severe Coughs, Bron chitis, Croup—and especially for Con sumption, where there is* difficult ex pectoration and coughing during the nights and mornings, there is nothing like German Syrup.
