REPULSIVE FEATURES.  Blackheads, pimples, greasy faces and muddy complexions, which are so common among women, especially girls at a certain age, destroying beauty, disfiguring and making repulsive features which would otherwise appear attractive and refined, indicate that the liver is out of order. An occasional dose of Herbine will cleanse the bowels regulate the liver and so establish a clear, healthy complexion. 50c at R. Haas, Agent.

The Bernice Record says: Sam Roberts, son of Judge Roberts, met with a serious accident Sunday. While performing some duty in the engine room at the Bernice mill a chipping of steel flew into his left eye, it is feared, ruining the sight. He left on the afternoon train for Ruston for treatment. He was accompanied by Dr. John Talbert. [We have since learned it was necessary to remove the eye.]

The Perfect Liver Medicine.  Mrs. M. A. Jolley, Noble, O. T., writes: “I have used Herbine for a number of years, and can cheerfully recommend it as the most perfect liver medicine, and the greatest blood purifier. It is a medicine of positive merit, and fully accomplishes all that is claimed for it.” Malaria cannot find a lodgment in the system while the liver is in perfect order, for one of its functions is to prevent the absorption of fever producing poisons. Herbine is a most efficient liver regulator. 50c at R. Haas, Agent.

The Boss Worm Medicine.  H. P. Kumpe, druggist, Leighton Ala., writes: “One of my customers had a child, which was sick, and threw up all food, could retain nothing on its stomach. He bought one bottle of White’s Cream Vermifuge, and it brought up 119 worms from the child. It’s the boss worm medicine in the world.” White’s  Cream Vermifuge is also the childrens’ tonic. It improves their digestion and assimilation of food, strengthens their nervous system and restores them to the health, vigor and elasticity of spirits natural to childhood. 25c at R. Haas, Agent.

Mrs. James R. Fuller, an estimable lady of Shiloh, wife of Capt. J. R. Fuller, president of the Bank of Bernice, died last Wednesday evening after a protracted illness. Her remains were laid at rest in the Shiloh cemetery Thursday. Mrs. Fuller had been an invalid for several months with lung affection, and as her condition gradually grew worse, her family entertained by little hopes for her recovery. Still the death of this good woman was quite a shock to her wide circle of friends. She leaves an aged husband and several children to mourn her death; but they can be comforted with the blessed thought that this dear wife and devoted mother has only gone to her heavenly home.

Two young men who live not a thousand miles from Farmerville, having been at outs for sometime, met last Friday and had a real genuine, all-wool-and-a-yard-wide gloveless contest. They fought like true pugilists of the 24-karat grit. After they had pounded each other with their fist until wearied down, they finished the job by kicking at each other in a way that would have done credit to a Texas mule. Such a brave and determined fight should have been concluded by the belligerents shaking hands and making friends. But we regret to say such was not done. Fighting of all kinds should be discouraged; but if men must do it, let them adopt this weaponless plan. It leaves a number of bruises, and possibly a few scars; but it leaves no widows or orphans, calls for no grave or felon’s cell.

A cowardly incendiary set fire to the two buildings, in Junction, occupied by Ed. Parnell as a wholesale grocery and feed store. Oil was freely used and when people got there, at 1 a. m., Friday they could not get near the burning buildings. It was also found that a small safe in building, in which Mr. Parnell had about $100 and some papers, had been broken into, but Mr. Parnell, who has been here since fire, thought this was for a blind. He also said he thought he knew enough to say that the fire was not a result of the so-called feud. The Junction Democrat, places loss to Mr. Parnell, and others who had goods stored in buildings, at $17,000, about half covered by insurance. He places Mr. Parnell’s loss at $8,500 — insurance $5,000. Citizens of Junction have offered $1000 reward for party who started fire and we sincerely hope he will be caught and punished. –El Dorado Tribune.

What are Humors

We learn that a few citizens of Farmerville have bargained with Mrs. J. M. Lee for her interest in the block of ground north of the public square in Farmerville. It includes seven lots, and the price agreed upon is $1500. The Farmerville State Bank is to get the lot in the north west corner of this square for $300.
