A IiO ( IT SOIT'IKRN I 'INKS TH2 ST AUGUSTINE SCHOOL, The concert, iven in King's Mr. W. H. Bagley, business ! Duuliters,s Hall on Monday after noon. February 2'drd by si udcnl-i of St Augustine's School. Italeigli was consiih'ieil a succ.-s. J he manager of the Raleigh daily ews and Observer, who by the bv is a brother of the late lamented Worth Bagley of tlir U. S. Navy, first American officer killed in the Spanish American war, writing of the Hand hill section tells in an article of nine columns in length what has been ;iccom plished- in our section. And we take pleasure in re publishing a brief of what Mr- Bagley sa: s. And we desire to assure Mr. Bag-ley that what has been done is only a quarter of what can be done. We all admit that to Mr. J. T. Patrick belongs the credit of laying out and .founding the town and no doubt but that on one of these days a notable Memorial will state that fact ; but Mr. Pat rick has been ably aided by energetic hustling men who have done much to encourage and sustain him in his work and today they are ably push ing our town to the front rank and we predict that within less than five " years Southern Pines will have three times as many houses as it has today and that a building lot that can be bought today, for two hundred dollars will sell for a thousand, mark our prediction. A few years since the corner lot near the bakery sold for sevent five dollars; last month a portion of that lot sold at the rate of near fifteen hundred dollars. Southern Pines is the center and no matter how many pla ces are started all must pay tribute to this place. We th iu k the News and Observer tor the goo'l words it has said and we commend it for the kind reference made to Mr. Patrick whose work we all appreciate.

"rMiittfjar A sallow complexion, dizziness. biliousness and a coated tongue are common indications of liver and kidney d iseases. Stomach and bowed troubles, severe as they are, give immediate warning by pain, but Jix'er and kidney troubles, though less painful at the start, are much harder to cure. Thedford's Black-Draught never fails to benefit diseased liver and weakened kidneys. It stirs up the torpid liver to throw off the germs of fever and ague. It is a certain preventive of cholera and Bright's disease of the kidneys. With kidneys reinforced by Thedford's Black-Draught thousands of persons have dwelt immune in the midst of yellow fever. Many families five in Serfect health and have no other octor than Thedford's Black- Draught. It is always on hand for use in an emergency and saves many expensive calls of a doctor. Muflins, S.

A dose of a good digestant like Kodol will relivo you at once. Your stomach is simply loo weak to digest what you eat. That's all indigestion is. Kodol digests the food without the stomach's aid. Thus the Btomach rests while the body is strengthened by wholesome food. Dieting is unnecessary. Kodol digests any kind of good food. Strengthens and invigorates. llsdcS Efiakcs Prepared only by E.
