Rev. Carlisle P. B. Martin, L. L. D. Waverly, Texas, writes: “Of a morning, when first rising, I often find a troublesome collection of phlegm, which produces a cough, and is very hard to dislodge; but a small quantity of Ballard’s Horehound Syrup will at once dislodge it, and the trouble is over. I know of no medicine that is equal to it, and it is so pleasant to take. I can most cordially recommend it to all persons, needing a medicine for throat and lung troubles.” Price 25c, 50c, $1.00 bottle.

A Pounding. The good people of the hospitable little town of Farmerville sought to make the pastor of the Baptist church happy. On Wednesday last, early in the afternoon they began to visit the home of the pastor and not only did they bring with them words of comfort and cheer, but they bought hams, eggs, butter, sugar, rice, coffee, flour, cheese, and in fact everything that it takes to set a good table and make the cook happy. This is a good example and we hope other churches will learn a lesson from this and make their pastors happy. Yours Truly, J. T. KING.

On Saturday night, at Lillie, Aaron Nations shot and killed Reuben Mekin. Both parties are negroes, and lived on Mr. J. S. Farrar’s place. It seems that Mekin had been boarding with Nations and became so abusive of the latter’s family that he was ordered to leave. On Saturday night he returned and the two negroes had a fight, which was stopped by a young white man who happened along. Mekin then left with the threat that he would kill Nations before day. He came back, but instead of being the killer, he was himself killed. Nations gave himself up, and was Monday released on a bond of $200.00.

I can not recommend it to highly, it will do all you claim for it.”

In these days there seems to be as many writers as there are readers. The spread of authorship and its egregious pride is hit off in this dialogue from the Fliegende Blatter: A guest at a hotel table reading the bill of fare says, “Your bill of fare is great!” “I am glad to hear it,” replies the head waiter. “I am its author.” – Ex.
