agrayate it. Most if not all of the patent catarrh remedies are
unsatisfactory and expensive. None of them are cures. We have
after years of close observation and experiment found a remedy
which' wilt eiverelief as long as it is used and is inexpensive. A
50c boitle lasting about 2 or 3 months. It is pleasant to use.

To the Reporter:

lines as we have been silent for a

the best scribe and could think of so
many funny things to say but think
she is going back to Abilene in a few
We had quite a-nice rain the other
night with some hail but not enough
to do any harm. ""t
The good people of Trent and vi-
cinity met last Saturday night was
two weeks ago and tt-mporarily or-
ganized a literary and debating society
John W. Baker was elected temporary
chairman. A committee on pro-
gramme was then appointed and the
following subject was set for discussion
the next Saturday night following:
Resolved that the dishrag is more
benitlcial than the broom to the house
keeper. We can truthfully say that
the little insigmdcent thing called a
dishrag won a great victory over the
large handle broom. And last Satur-
day night the discussion was "Which
is the most useful to humanitv the
cow or the horst?" and the judges
thought the horse got a little better
of the cow. Anyhow we must thank
Pro. Looney for voting in favor of the
Big Sykes and Bro. Bumps were the
other two judges.
The subject for next Saturday night
is "Which has caused the most woe
and distress war or intemperence?"
Now Callie look out when you take
your girl out buggy riding that a heel
fly don't get after you instead of your
horse for we believe you have some
likeness pf the cow
Don't forget Mr. Baker to goose
the poor old cow when you go home
tonight and get the baby his supper
Be sure and don't make him divide
up with you.
The next timjjou come to Trent
Bob be sure you wear your horse
leather boots and ride your horse
leather saddle and bring aloog a's 1
your raw hide larut male of horse
Miss Lydia Baker we are sorry to
say is agaip on the sick list.
Miss Flora Brown came up from
the capi lul last Saturday evening to
visit the family of Mr. and Mrs. James
Poor Vitk is so sick. Vick we
