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.

Miss Etta Shuster yesterday received her appointment and commission as postmistress at Farmerville. Miss Etta is a most worthy young lady, and we feel sure she will give universal satisfaction in her new position.

World Wide Reputation. Whites Cream Vermifuge has achieved a world wide reputation as being the best of all worm destroyers, and for its tonic influence on weak and unthrifty children, as it neutralizes the acidity or sourness of the stomach, improves the digestion and assimilation of food, strengthens their nervous system and restores them to health, vigor and elasticity natural to childhood. 25c at R. HAAs, Agent.

Mr. Joseph W. Bryant and Miss Addie Vinson, both of the town of Orlander, county of Cleveland, Ark., were married in Farmerville on Monday last.

They only had 90 miles to travel overland before they could become husband and wife.

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.

Mr. E. N. Lindsey, formerly of this place but now a resident of Tremont, was on yesterday married to Miss Dollie Farris, at the home of the bride’s father, Mr. C. M.

THE GAZETTE wishes the young couple the full bliss of their anticipation.

The building of the Farmerville & Southern railroad has put new life into the people of Farmerville. The Farmerville Hotel, owned by Maj. John Donley, has been repaired and dressed off with a new coat of paint. A bank is soon to be started, and other improvements are under contemplation. Marion has also waked up at the prospect of a railroad and is constructing new residences and business houses. All of the old men who had about made up their minds to die in peace have shaved and dressed up and appear fully fifteen years younger.


THE GAZETTE is informed that the people of the should-be enterprising town of Monroe are reporting that they have heard that all hands have quit work on the Farmerville and Southern Railroad and that the enterprise is dead. This is not true. The enterprise is not half so dead as the business men of Monroe seem to be. Work has not stopped, neighbor, nor will it stop until the road is completed to Farmerville from — we regret to say — a junction with the road running from Bastrop to El Dorado.

If your business men were as alive as the road they would be making some effort to bring it s southern extension to Monroe. Unless an effort is made you will let this road miss you for the southern extension will run somewhere near Tremont if it does not go to Ruston. With saw mills all along the line our trade will be worth something to you and as little as you may think of it trains will be running into Farmerville by Jan. 1, 1904, and the line located south.

We hate to see Monroe sleep for we know and love its people. About one mile of the road is graded and instead of work having stopped we are looking for larger forces daily. The following from the Shreveport times should wake you up:

“Many, La., May 22. — Maps of this parish with requests to secure the rights of way from owners along the route have been received by a certain party here from those at the head of a road projected at Farmerville to join the Orange and Northwestern in Sabine county, Tex. The names of the road your correspondent has not learned.”

FOR THOSE WHO LIVE ON FARMS. Dr. Bergin, Pana, Ills., writes, “I have used Ballard’s Snow Liniment; always recommend it to my friends, as I am confident there is no better made. It is a dandy for burns.” Those who live on farms are especially liable to many accidental cuts, burns, and bruises, which heal rapidly when Ballard’s Snow Liniment is applied. It should always be kept in the house for cases of emergency. 25c 50c and$1 at R. Haas, Agent.
