The Salvationists failed to come.
The weather has broken, but the
rains continue. A very hard one
fell here yesterday afternoon.
Mrs. Dr. C. A. Brooks, of Amer
icus, came up yesterday on a visit to
her mother, Mrs. Georgia Copeland.
Miss Mollie I,owe has returned
from a visit to relatives and friends
near Cataula and Waverly Hall.
Mr. Willie Beall, of Talbot county,
has been spending a few days in
town with his sister, Mrs. H. C.
A continuation of the weather of
the past week must inevitably injure
upland crops. Low lands have al¬
ready been hurt.
Col. J. M. Mobley, Judge W. I.
Hudson, Misses Lula Mobley and
Maggie Cook and Dr. Harold Wil¬
liams are up in Troup county to-day
at a barbecue.
The freshet took off five
or six bridges in the county and in¬
jured a number of others. Every¬
thing considered, however, the loss
sustained by the county is very light.
The protracted services at the
Methodist church were interrupted
last week by the bad weather.
Rev. W. A. Farley was to have
preached Sunday moi ning but could
not get here on account of the rain.
Next Sunday is his regular appoint¬
Dr. W. L. Bullard, cf Columbus,
lias issued a small pamphlet ' entitled
Optical Hygiene, which treats upon
the various diseases of the eye. It
is an interesting work upon a subject
on which Dr. Bullard is remarkably
well posted, as he makes a specialty
of the treatment of diseases of the
eye, ear and nose. The pamphlet
will be mailed to any address free
upon application, and it should be
in the hands of every one troubled
with diseased or weak eyes.
Meriwether Vindicator: Mr. and
Mrs. T. M. Pace, of Cedartown, who
have been visiting Mr. A. P. Dixon
and family at Woodbury, came up to
Greenville Tuesday afternoon to take
the train for Hamilton. Mrs. Pace
is a relative of Mrs. Dixon and ex¬
pected to go from Woodbury on the
Georgia Midland on a visit to rela¬
tives in Harris county, but the wash¬
out on that road near Warm Springs
compelled Mr. and Mrs. Pace to
come to Greenville and take passage
on the Greenville and Columbus rail¬
- The Buena Vista Tati lot says it is
amusing for the Vindicator to speak
ot Mrs.Revill as the Silent Partner of
the establishment. Well, it is remark¬
able how silent our partner can be.
We know of onlv one mortal that can
. keep quiet - , longer tnan our co-worker ____,___
and that happy being is Prof. Jno.n.
Dozier, of the Hamilton Female Col¬
lege. It is a treat to hear him in one
of his silent moods. Gifted, brilliant
and genial as he is, it is a great pity
the good man can't talk. 11 e. Rev.
B. H. Sasnett and our Silent Partner
had a silent party last Wednesday
night at the Vindicator home which
was highly enjoyed by us who did
nothing but listen to the bright witti¬
cisms that kept passing round all the
time. Hamilton has a rate jewel in
Prof. Dozier. May he and his col¬
lege prosper and obtain all the patron¬
age of the surrounding territory.—
BLUE SPRING SPRAYS.
Rain fell between Cataula and
and Blue Spring last Wednesday af¬
Messrs J. E. Reid and J, L. Davis
visited Blue Spring yesterday, also
Mr. J. M. Parker.
Misses Susie and Foundlon Moore
have returned from a visit, of several
days to Salem, Ala.
Mr. Henry Johnston and wife
came down from Chipley Sunday to
visit their aunt, Mrs. J. C. Reid.
Mr. J. C* Reid has several acres of
cotton which upon an average will
amount to one hundred and twenty
squares per staU.
From what we have learned we
think the meeting at Beech Spring
was not very general, but guess from
the number of pigs slain and other
things in accordance there was a gen¬
Dr. C. D. Adams, of Salem, Ala.,
and Mr. C. T. Broyles of Columbus,
paid a pleasant visit to our village a
few days since. Somehow I always
feel good to see broils (Broyles) com¬
ing to our table.
We hope the young man who was
kind enough to let a certain young
lady (Lil) have his coat while travel¬
ing during a recent storm and braved
the “blow” with his duster on may
never get bald-headed.
Fruit drying and pickle and pre¬
serve making is the business of some
of our industrious people while the
sun shines, but the recent rainy spell
has been a splendid time to receive

Although late we happily confess
having spent a very pleasant day at
the Kingsboro picnic. We were well
entertained by the speakers, but the
most interesting feature of the occa¬
sion (to us) was the elegant dinner

by Misses Ella and Fannie Hightow¬
er. “May their shadows never grow

A Novel Bet.
While I am not a betting man, said F J
Cheney, of the firm of F J Cheney & Co.,I
considered it my religious duty to make
that fellow a bet, you see he was about
dead, and I guess be would of died before
spring, if I had not cf got him on the bet.
You know some men had rather loose their
life than lose a hundred, well he was one
of that kind, and we both came near being
out, but I saved my hundred and it only
cost him ten dollars. How’s that ? He
sent for me one day and said the doctors
had ill given him up to die, with catarrh
I told him that I would bet him $100 that
Hall’s Catarrh cure would cure Lira or I
would give hi.n $100 if it failed. He took
the latter proposition. This was three
months ago You see how he looks now,
don’t you, as well ?s any cue,and a dandy.

In Brief and to the Point.
Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered
liver is misery. Indigestion is a foe
to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and
wonderful things in existence. It is
easily put out of order.
Greasy food.tough food,sloppy food
bad cookery, mental worry, late hours,
rregular habits, and many other
things which ought not to be, have
made the American people a nation
But Green's August Flower has done
a wonderful work in leforming this
sad business and making the Ameri¬
can people so healthy that they can
enjoy their meals and be happy.
Rc-member:-No happiness without
health. But Green’s August Flower
brings health and happiness to the
dyspeptic. Ask your druggist for a
bottle. Seventy-five cents.

Dear Sir:—My step son, 16 years
old, has been sick 9 years, suffering
with sallow complexion, thin blood,
loss of appetite, great weakness and
swelling of his feet, legs and stomach.
His face was bloated,puffed and watery
looking (dropsical) his complexion be¬
ing very pale and yellow. He bad no
regular appetite and was too weak to
work, not having worked six months,
all told, in two years. I had tried 6
or 7 doctors and spent $300 to cure
him,but all failed. 1 had offered one
doctor $150 to cure him, but he re¬
fused to take the case. I had heard
so much about your Nunbetter Tonic
Bills I got 5 bottles (for $1) and gave
them to him. He is now entirely well
and has worked for 3 months in the
field steadily,and I consider him finally
Cured. Your pills are a paying in¬
vestment for sick and puny people.
