We feel that we should apologize to our readers for the lack of general news matter

in today’s paper. Just before going to the press an unexpected demand was made

for advertising space which forces us to leave out of the paper reading matter which

we would like very much to print, much of it already in type.

We hope our readers will bear patiently with us and we promise that if our business

continues to grow we will install necessary equipment to handle it. We have added

more than one hundred new subscribers to our subscription list since taking over the

management of the paper, and it is this rapid growth in our circulation that is

bringing so great a demand on our advertising space.

We are looking forward to the day — and we honestly believe it is not far

distance — when the business of the paper will justify the installation of type

casting machines and speedier presses. Then we can enlarge the paper to

accommodate our advertisers with out necessarily cutting our reading space.

“I used Thedford’s Black-Draught first for constipation,” said Mrs. C. E. Buntin, of

R. F. D. 5, Starkville, Miss. “I would feel dull, stupid and have severe headaches,

even feverish. I had an uneasy, tight feeling in my stomach. I read quite a bit about


Liver Medicine

I began using it and soon my bowels acted regularly and I was greatly relieved. I

used it every once in a while for about 18 years. “About two years ago I found I

was having indigestion, a tight smothering in my chest, then severe pain, especially

after eating sweets. I commenced taking just pinch of Black-Draught after meals,

and by doing this I could eat anything. “I gave Black-Draught to my children for

colds and headaches. I can certainly recommend it.” Black-Draught is used, with

satisfaction by millions.

Had rheumatism for years, found help at last.

There is no need to suffer with rheumatic pain. For nearly half a century thousands

of rheumatic suffers the world over have been getting quick and positive relief with

a very simple home treatment. “I tried every liniment you can think of,” writes

H. Roundtree of 2714 Grand Avenue, Dallas, Texas, “But Sloan’s Liniment is the

best. Relief is obtained in one night.” And it is amazing — the comfort that Sloan’s

gives to even the most longstanding rheumatic aches. No need to rub. A little

Sloan’s patted lightly on — and a healing tide of fresh, germ-destroying blood

begins tingling through the aching place. Before you can believe it, the pain,

swelling, and stiffness are relieved. Get a bottle today. All druggist — 35 cents.
