THE TWENTIETH CENTURY COUNTRY WEEKLY. AS BARNESVTLLE, GA., THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1902. ROOSEVELT TO COME? Has Been Invited to Deliver 4th of July Celebration Address AT CHAUTAUQUA THIS YEAR. The President Now Has the Invita tion Under Consideration. The directors of the Chautauqua Association at tliier meeting last Friday afternoon unanimouisly, extended an invitation to Presi dent Theodore Roosevelt to deliver the Fourth of July address for the Chautauqua this year. President Smith and Secretary Hardy prepared the invitation and furnished the same to Governor Candler and Cols. F. M. Stafford and J. Q. Nash to present to the president at Charleston last Mon day. But because of Providential reasons the President was unable to he at Charleston this week, and the invitation was therefore sent him by mail. President Roosevelt has on pre vious occasions been in correpon dence with the directors of the association and has always ex pressed a desire to visit Barnes ville, and will probably accept the invitation to do so on this occasion. He has the invitation under con sideration at present and will no tify the committee within the next few days. Contracts for the musical part of the program are being made at present and the best talent that can be had will be brought here during the next chautauqua. • NOSE CUT OFF. As Result ofNejjro Fight Which Oc curred Fast Monday. Calvin Andrews and Jim Rus sell, two negroes who work for the Summers Buggy Company, became involved in a difficulty with each other in the yard at the factory last Monday, and as a result of the fight the former cut the lat ter’s nose off with a pocket knife. The negroes were oiling some machinery when they became en gaged in a quarrel 1 that led to the fight. Andrews was at once arrested by Sheriff’ Howard and given a pre liminary hearing before Capt. E. .J. Murphey, justice of the peace, and was bound over to the city court on charge of mayhem. The wounded was carried home and his wounds were dressed by Dr. J. P Thurman. C’ajit. Kinjt Dead. News reached here Tuesday morning of the death of ('apt. .1. | S. King, of Thomaston, which oc-! ourred at his home in that city; after a protracted illness of sev eral weeks. Capt. King was a prominent cit izen and has held many positions of trust. Ho represented Upson county in the legislature one time and was for several years clerk of the Superior court of that county. “There are few persons,” says a soldier who, long since returned to civic ranks, according to the Washington Star, “who know how the name of buck-board came to be applied to a vihicle? It was way back in the ’2ob when the transportation of goods, wares and merchandise was principally all by wagons. Or. Buck, who for long years after was the military storekeeper here,was then in charge of stores en route to army posts in the Southwest. The East Tenn- essee difficulty was experienced by reason of the rough roads, and there were frequent mishaps, mostly from the wagons overturn ing. Dr. Bucks overhauled the outfit, and abandoning the wagon Bodies, long hoards were set direct ly on the axles or hung below, and the stores were reloaded in such a manner that there were no further delavs from breakdowns, and the stores safely reached their desti nation. The idea doubtless was not new, but Dr. Buck’s example was followed, especially when roads were rough, and soon much hauling was done by the use of wheel, axle and boards only. Now the fashionable buck-board recalls the old gentleman to some of us. ’ Bom the Kind You Hate Always Bought BOTH INSTITUTIONS TO REORGANIZE. COTTON MILLAND BANK BOTHTO BE PUT IN OPERATION AGAIN WITHIN A SHORT WHILE Outlook In This l)iro<'(ion is Now Very KncouraKii'K- The meeting of the depositors of the Barnesville Savings Bank last Saturday resulted in nearing the completion of the details of the reorganization of the Barnes ville Manufacturing Cos. along the lines discussed m the previous meeting and published in last is sue of the Nbws-Gazette.

By local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of tin; ear. There is only one way to cure deafness and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out • lid this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be de stroyed forever: nine eases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mu cous surfaces.
