Report <>f Atlanta Audit Cos., regarding the two last reports of The Dispensary Commission was read and motion made that said report he accepte and made a part of the minutes. REPORT or AUDIT COMPANY. Aug. 22, 1902. Mr. W. B. Smith, Mayor, City. Dear srß ßegarding reports of “Dispensary Commission,” addressed to the mayor and council and dated March Ist. and June 2, 1902. First as to report dated March Ist. 1902. Assuming that the statement of cash and stock on hand is correct and THE BARNESVILLE NEWS-GAZETTE, THUI SDAY, AUGUST 28, 1902. that the amount entered as due on stock ($632.30) covers all liability for ['stock, salaries, license, rents and other expenses incurred to that date it would appear that the total profits to March 2nd amounted to $1,448.55. To arrive at profits for quarter covered by this report it would be necessary to deduct from above amount the inventory of stock on hand at beginning of the quarter less liabilities that have since been settled. In other words deduct “net worth” of the dispensary on Dec. Ist. 1901 from $1,448.55 and it will give profit for the quarter. As I have no data before me will have to refer you to report of Dec. Ist. for this information. The report dated June 2nd. 1902, is silent as regards the $632.30 reported as due on stock March 2nd. and is also silent as to existing indebtedness on stock. Assuming that this $632.30 has been fully paid and is included in item “paid for merchandise $4,088.82” and that there is no existing indebtedness on stock in hand or stock disposed of (luring the quarter, it would seem that the total profits for the last two quar ters amount to $1,746.96 represented by items on statement as follows: Cash on hand $ 642 Stock on hand 1141 54 Paid on old accounts 600 00 Totai sl,"-6 9! Deduct profirs to March 2 1,448 55 Leaves net Profit for last quarter 208.41 On the other hand if the $632.30 men tioned in report of March 2, and on which the June report is silent is still unpaid, the business for the last quar ter shows a loss $333.89 to which should be added any debts incurred since March 2nd and which are still unpaid. It will he necessary to get more definite information on these points before a reliable statement of profits or losses can he made. It is impossible even to determine t he results accomplished in any business from a statement of assets only. If your commission will give a statement of both assets and liabilities at the end of each quarter and when there are no debts give you a statement to that ef fect, you can then easily determine the profit for each quarter and there will be less to take for granted or at which to guess. You will see from above it is impos sible for us to state definitely from the meagre information given in reports referred to, just what amount has been earned by the d'spensary during the last quarter. Respectfully, The Audit Cos. Nothing further, minutes read and adopted and council adjourn ed. W. B. Smith, J. A. Blalock Mayor. Clerk & Treas. Report of Sec. & Treas. of Gordon Institute.

How To Find Out. Fill a bottle or common glass with your water and let it stand twenty-four hours; a sediment or set tling indicates an unhealthy condi tion of the kid neys; if It stains your linen it is evidence of kid ney trouble; too frequent desire to pass it or pain in the back is also convincing proof that the kidneys and blad der are out of order. What to Do. There is comfort in the knowledge so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp- Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part of the urinary passage. It corrects Inability to hold water and scalding pain in passing it, or bad effects following use of liquor, wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant necessity of being compelled to go often during the day, and to get up many times during the night. The mild and the extra ordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized. It stands the highest for its won derful cures of the most distressing cases. If you need a medicine you should have the best.

A boy’s first position in a com mercial house is usually at the foot of the ladder; his duties are plain, his place is insignificant, and his salary small. He is ex pected to familiarize himself with the business, and as lie becomes more intelligent in regard to it, bo is advanced to a more responsi ble place. His first duty, then, is work. He must cultivate day by day habits of fidelity, accuracy, neatness and dispatch, and these qualities will tell in his favor as surely as the world revolves. Though he may work unnoticed and uncomniended for months, such conduct always meets its reward. i once knew a boy who was a clerk in a large mercantile house which employed as entry clerks, shippingclcrks, buyers, beek-keep ers and salesman eighty young men, besides a small army of por ters, packers and truckmen; and this boy of seventeen felt that amid such a crowd he was lost to notice and that any eifort he might make would he quite unregarded. Nevertheless he did his duty; every morning at eight o’clock he was promptly at his place, and every power that he possesed was brought to bear upon his work. After he had been there a year he had oc casion to ask a week’s leave of absence during the busy season “That,” was the response, “is an unusual request, and one which is somewhat inconvenient for us to grant; but for the purpose of showing you that we appreciate the efforts you have made since you have been with us, we take pleasure in giving you the leave of absence for which you ask.” “i didn’t think,” said the boy, when be came home that night and related his success, “tliat they knew a thing about me, but it seems they have watched me ever since 1 have been with them.” They had, indeed, watched him, and had selected him him for ad vancement, for shortly after, he was promoted to a position of trust with appropriate increase of salary. It must be so, sooner <>r a *■£ T T TTX Will sour the sweetest disposition and /\ l\ I fll || transform the most even tempered, lov /"X I j\ j \ J able nature into a cross-grained and irritable individual. 9 fy | * If impatience or fault-finding are | | | J L_| ever excusable it is when the Ixxly is J J tortured by an eating and painful sore. It is truly discouraging to find after months of diligent and faithful use of external remedies that the place remains as defiant, angry and offensive as ever. Every chronic sore, no matter on what part of the body it comes, is an evidence of some previous constitutional or organic trouble, and that the dregs of these diseases remain in the system; or, it may be that some long hidden poison—perhaps Cancer —has come to the surface and begun its destructive work. The blood must be purified before the sore will fill up with healthy flesh and the skin regains its natural color. It is through tiie circulation that the acrid, corroding f^ fluids are carried to the sore or ulcer and keep it irritated and inflamed. S. S.

Rock efeller is succeeding ingrowing a new suit of fine young hair on his perfectly bald head are being watched with interest by all tins baldheaded men in the country. But it is very doubtful whether he will be able to bring the van ished locks back to their original strength. As the New York World says, many are the theories conceived to comfort the bald—most of them fallacious. It has been said by those who care not what they say that there are no bald men in lunatic asylums; the fact being of course that a man may he as “crazy as a loon” and as bald as the egg she lays. Baldness is ascribed to im proper breathing, to lack of ven tilation of the scalp, to early in sedatenessof conduct. The modern tendency is to attribute it, like most other ills, to digestive troubles. Figuratively speaking, men pull out their hair with their own teeth, corkscrews sometime# aiding the process. It would be interesting to know how many millions of dollars are paid out every year by men for hair restorers. Not much hair re sults, but money is kept in circu lation. But if there were a sure cure for baldness the magic bottle would contain, as Dr. Johnson said of Mrs. Thrale’s beer vats, “the po tentiality of growing rich beyond the dreams of avarice.” Its in ventor could buy out the Steel Trust.
