With this issue THE GAZETTE begins the 25th year of its existence. Before it reaches another mile-stone we hope and have strong reason to believe that the iron horse will be making rapid and regular trips to Farmerville, and with its wake will follow a bank, cotton oil mill, numerous saw mills, (?) canning factory and other enterprises of that character, building the old town with new (?) houses, additional residents and an active and thorough-(?) population.

Cancer Cured!!! Mr. W. Pickett, Smithfield, Ill., writes, Sept 10th, 1901: “I had been suffering many years with a cancer on my face, which gave me great annoyance and unbearable itching. I was using Ballard’s Snow Liniment for a sore leg, and through an accident, I rubbed some of the liniment on the cancer, and as it gave me almost instant relief, I decided to continue to use the liniment on the cancer. In a short time the cancer came out, my face healed up and there is not the slightest scar left. I have implicit faith in this preparation, and it cannot be too highly recommended.” 25¢, 50¢ and $1.
