A TRUE BOWEL
A Remedy That Purifies the Bowels
Mildly, Strengthens the Bowel
Channels and Promotes
A General System Tonic.
By no means the least of the valuable
properties of Prickly Ash Bitters is ita
admirable effect in the bowels. Any
active cathartic will empty the bowels,
but it takes more than a mere cathartic
to cure them. What is needed is a tonic,
a restorative; one that will strengthen
the bowel channels and prevent the re-
turn of constipated conditions. Prickly
Ash Bitters contains these desirable
qualities to a remarkable degree. It is
a mild laxative that moves the bowels
comfortably, the drasticbowel drenching
and paralizing effect of strong cathartics
being noticeably absent. It not only
empties the bowels comfortably, but it
regulates the bile—the liquid which
moistens the inner lining of the bowels
and makes it possible for the waste
products of the body to pass through,
and finally, it relieves those conditions
produced by imperfect digestion which
fills the stomach and bowels with gas
and fermenting matter. Prickly Ash
Bitters is in short a handy household
medicine and should be kept in every
home. There are constantly occuring
in every family little ailments which are
easily checked if given attention but
which prove serious if neglected and it
is in correcting these troubles that
Prickly Ash Bitters has established its
claim to be a "family medicine." It
relieves women of sick headache, sour
stomach, dizziness and promotes regu-
larity in the monthly periods. Children
with worms, those who are sickly, rest-
less and irritable, who eat too much
candy or sweet stuff, who complain of
colic or disturbance in the bowels, will
immediately improve and grow strong,
ruay and cheerful under its cleansinj
and invigorating influence.

Methodist Congregation Will
Arrange tor Annual
A Democrat representative at-
tended the Wbites Grove camp
meeting Thursday, and spent a
very pleasant and profitable day.
The camp meeting is something
new for the Methodist cburcb in
that community, and was inagu-
rated with a view to making it
permanent, and judging from the
success that has attended it thus
far we feel sure that It will be no
trouble to have an annual gather-
ing. It is an ideal place for such
meetings. The location is in a
beautiful grove which is a part of
the three acres of ground given to
the church more than twenty-five
vears ago, by George White, de-
ceased. It is tbe purpose of the
congregation to build a perma-
nent tabernacle under which to
hold services, dig a deep well
and arrange everything for the
convenience of campers who will
be invited from all over the dis-
trict and county.
Whites Grove is only four
miles south-west from McKinney
and it will be a delightful place
for people to go out from town
and camp. The following fami-
lies are now camped on the
Rev D L Coale, the pastor, J
G Williams, M C McMahan, J T
Crowder W M H orn, John Moore
Will Williams, John Ilolomon
and Dick Emerson all of tbe im-
mediate neighborhood, and Joe
Robbius and family of Lebanon,
and John Nale and family of Mc-
Kinney. These families repre-
sent about sevonty persons.
Plenty of good water is furnish-
ed, cows are kept on the ground
for milk, and a cold drink and
confectionery stand is run for
the benefit of the church. The
campers have good tents and ev-
erything conveniently arranged
for cooking. The writer and
wife had the pleasure of spread-
ing their dinner and supper with
Mr and Mrs M C McMahan, and
Mr and Mrs J T Nale. Four ser-
vices are held daily under a large
teut; the early morning devo-
tions, preaching at 11 a m, 4:30
and 8 p iu. We heard two tine
sermons by Rev D J Martin of
Piano, who has been assisting the
pastor. Rev Coale, in the meet-
The 11 o'clock service Thurs-
day morninig which was turn-
ed into an experience meeting was
one of the finest it has ever been
our pleasure to attend.
Rev F A Rosser the presiding
Elder has also done some fine
preaching. The singing is under
the direction of Miss Clyde El-
kms, organinst, aud Mr Ed Mil-
br of Blue Ridge assisted by a
large choir of home talent. Tbe
meeting began last Friday, and
the attendance has been fairly
f;ood during the day with very
arge crowds at night, many go-
ing out from McKinnej. The
interest is splendid, and there has
been about fifteen conversions.
Rev Coale. the pastor, is one of
the most zealous, energetic young
preachers iu the North Texas
Conference. He has been on tbe
Allen circuit for two years and
has done a grand work. Besides
the many revivals he has
conducted in which hundreds
of souls have been saved
he has organized three new
churches—Fannie Harrington and
Coale's Chapel and Wetsel, and
built two houses of worship—
Fannie Harrington Chapel and
Wetsel, the latter being now
under course of erection.
Whites Grovts Methodist
church is more than a quarter of
a century old, and has something
like ninety members, composed
of some of the best people of the
county. The present board of
Stewards are: J G Williams, W
M Horn and W E Williams.
Trustees: M C McMahan, J G
Williams and W M Horn.
We hope to see the permanent
camp ground* which the congre-
gation have in view, established,
and feel sure that hundreds of
families over the county will at-
end each year
Uncle Jake Graymn Who Came
to Collin la 1049.
Princeton Bank Opened.
Tbe Princeton Bank, a branch
of tbe Collin County National
Bank, has been opened up for
bu«inees with Wallace C WiUon
of this city in charge. Mr. Wil-
son has built a residence at
Princeton and wil move bis fami-
ly there at onoe.
Uncle Jako Grayum, of near
Dump, mingled with old friends
on our streets Friday and re-
membered us with a pleasant call
to renew his Democrat subscrip-
tion. He also subscribed for The
Democrat for his daughter, Mrs
filen Sutber of Silo, I T., snd
subscribed for two copies of tthe
Dallas News st our clubbing rate.
Uncle Jske is one of our coun-
ty's few surviving pioneers, hav-
ing come to Collin in 1849, when
only 15 yesrs old. He is rather
modest in conversation, but when
drawn out can recount msny in-
teresting experiences and inci*
dents of frontier life in this
county. The writer beard him
tell of a bear bunt, for instance,
in which he climbed a tree and
caught two cubs which he threw
down to his brother who caught
them in a big coffee sack. The
late Uncle Wess-Kirbey had pre-
viously shot and killed the old
mother bear. The place of this
capture was on land now owned
by Aaron Snyder. Mr Grayum
raised tbe cubs to be nets An-
other time, one night, he chained
his dogs in the yard, after killing
three wild cats in order to keep
them from treeing again. Times
have wonderfully changed since
Uncle Jake's advent to that sec-
tion of county which has always
been bis home. Within tbe span
of his lifetime the worthless vir-
gin prairie and wildwood laud
have alike been transformed into
a continuous agricultural section
of unsurpassed fertility and thick-
ly inhabited by a prosperous, in-
It is a great convenience to
have at hand reliable remedies for
use in cases of accident and for
slight injuries and ailments. A
good liniment and one that is
fast becoming a favorite if not a
household necessity is Chamber-
lain's Pain Balm. By apylying it
promptly to a cut, bruise or bum
it allays the pain and causes the
injury to heal in about one-third
the time usually required, and as
it is an antiseptic it prevents any
dangei of blood poisoning. When
Pain Balm is kept at hand a
sprain may be treated before in-
flammation sets in. which insures
a quick recovery. For sale by

Emperor and Prohibition.
Emperor Menelik of Abyssinu
has issued an edict prohibiting
tbe impoitation of alcoholit
drinks into his Empire. Frencl
wines and Germau beer have, he
says, found their way to his cour^
He has watched their effects ant
has como to the conclusion tha^
if he does not put a stop to the
drinking that is going on his Em-
pire will soon fall prey to othej
nations. The Emperor has n^
objection to European arts an<
sciences, but he sets his facl
against European poison, and del
clares that he will punish importf
era of alcoholic liquors by forcim
the liquors down their throats ui
til they die. In the preamble
his edict he savs that drunkci
ness is pernicious, enfeebles
race, and destroys the body ant
mind. He desires that his peo]
plo remain strong, healthy indef
pendent, and, aa a means to tba[
end, prohibits alcoholic drinks i|
every part of hie domains.—ej
