Spring Ailments. There is an aching and tired feeling; the liver bowels and kidneys become sluggish and inactive, the digestion impaired, with little or no appetite, no ambition for anything, and a feeling that the whole body and mind need toning up. The trouble is that during winter there has been an accumulation of waste matter in the system. Herbine will remove it, secure to the secretions a right exit, and by its tonic effect, fully restore the wasted tissues and give strength in place of weakness. 50c at R. Haas, Agent.

CURES WHEN DOCTORS FAIL. Mrs. Frank Chiasson, Patterson, La., writes June 8th, 1901: “I had malaria fever in very bad form, was under treatment by doctors, but as soon as I stopped taking their medicine the fever would return. I used a sample bottle of Herbine, found it helped me. Then bought two bottles, which completely cured me. I feel grateful to you for furnishing such a splendid medicine, and can honestly recommend it to those suffering from malaria, as it will surely cur them.” Herbine, 50c bottle at R. Haas, Agent.

Spring Humors

Closing Exercises of School. The closing exercises of the Farmerville High School last Thursday evening and Friday were very entertaining, and the large crowd present on both occasions attested the interest our people took in them. The program Thursday evening at the court house consisted of dialogues, recitations, drills, and plays, interspersed with music by the Farmerville brass band. All the participants acquitted themselves creditably. At the picnic Friday in the Lee grove, Miss Rosa Ramsey and Mr. Louis Pace read papers, Miss Mabel Gilbert rendered a recitation, and Messrs. John Roaten, F. F. Preaus, C. H. Jameson and Robt. Roberts gave appropriate addresses, at the close of which resolutions were unanimously adopted endorsing the good work of the school faculty during the past year and regretting their voluntary retirement from the work. An excellent basket dinner was then spread in the grove and everybody ate to their heart’s content, after which the balance of the day was pleasantly spent in playing games and chatting.
