feasting, and turkey dinners were the
rule. In some instances there were
family parties and reunions; others en
tertained friends and neighbors, while

own homes fared on the beet of good
things. In the afternoon there was
the matinee at the La Belle theatre,
end the show at night, a* well as the

sort of weather whleh tbreantened

veloped nothing but a brisk wind
with a alow falling temperature,
which by night made overcoats com

Palacjos Hardware Co.
The first entertainment given by the
pnblio schools for the present school
year, was the concert at the audi-
torium Tuesday evening, given by
pnpils of the 4th, 5th, 8th and 7th
grades for the benefit of the school
library. Miss Trnitt, Mr. Richards,
the Boy Scouts and the Rlohards Or-
chestra assisted the echool pupils,
contributing number* to the program
that were much enjoyed. A large
crowd was out to beer the "young
hopefuls,” encouraging them by both
their presence and hearty applanse.
Although the admission charged was
only 10 and 16 cents, the proceeds
from the oondert amounted to some-
thing over $36. Thl* will go toward
adding needed reference books and
otber accessories to the library.
The features of the program were
descriptive and costumed playlets and
musical sketches. The 4th grade pre-
sented the "Mother Goose Conven-
tion;’’ 6th grade, the “Harvest Time;’’
7th grade, "The Winning Ways of
Grandma’s Days.” end '-A Corn
Pageant” by the 6th grade. In all
theae the pnpils were well drilled and
handsomely or grotesquely costumed
as the scenes demanded. Personal
mention Is precluded, but all will
agree that the tnrkey gobbler when he
came on the stage, whs the center of
attraction. The impersonation of the
Thanksgiving bird was quite realistic.
The Boy Scoots gave an exemplifica-
tion of first aid to the injured, a scout
long and yell,"and attracted much at-
tention and favorable comment.
Next Friday evening e part of Mis*
Garrett’s music class will give the
old time concert mentioned elsewhere
to which everybody la Invited, and no
admission charge will be made.
Some Fine Apples
The Beacon has Mr. T. P. Gillespie
to thank for some extra fine apples
left at onr office Tuesday. The apples
were from Mr. GilleCpie's orchard at
Lawrencevlile, IU., several barrels of
which were shipped to him here by
hie daughter, Mrs. O. J. Barnett, along
with a lot of hickory note and other
nuts from the home place. The ap-
ples left the Beacon editor wero of
the Roman Beanty, Wineeap, Aiken
Seedling and Bltok Twig varieties,
and were fine specimens, free from
blemish or pest. Mr. Gillespie tells
ns the apple orop In hi* ssotion of
Illinois Is especially large and fine
this year—one of the, beet produced
In recent yean. We are especially
grateful to friend Gillespie for his
kind remembrance, since the trait
osme from near whore the Beacon
man first landed on the earth, and
while enjoying the Amlt it was no ef-
fort of the memory to recall the days
of early childhood.
Mrs. Dr. Wagner Injured
Mrs- Dr. Jennings-Wagner was the
victim ot what was near s most eeri-
one accident Monday while making a
professional call in the Dunbar neigh-
borhood. She was making the trip
in her auto, and on the road near
Dunbar a low hanging telephone wire
was caught by the top of the oar, the
wire striking Mrs. Wagner across tbs
face, cutting a deep gash in the
oheek, and dislocating several teeth
and fractnnng the jaw bone. Not-
withstanding the severity ot her in-
juries the plucky lady drove back to
town in her oar and went at once to
the dentist who extracted the Injured
teeth and some fragments ot broken
The many friends of Mrs. Wagner
will be glsd to know that under skill-
ful treatment her jnjnrie* are making
satisfactory progress In healing, and
that very soon she will have folly re-
covered from the distressing sooiden t
which might easily have bean much
more serious, tbs unfortunate victim

Calomel Salivates And Makes
Aots Like Dynamite on a Sluggish
Liver and You Loa* a Day's Work.
There’s no reason why a person
should take sickening, salivating cal-
omel when 60 cents buys a large bot-
tle of Dodson’s Liver Tone—a perfect
substitute for calomel.
It is a pleasant, vegetable liquid
which' will start your liver just as
surely as calomel, bub it doesn’t make
you siok and can not salivate.
Children and grown up folks oan
take Dodson’s Liver Tone, beoanse it
is perfectly harmless.
Calomel is a dangerous drag. It is
merenry and attacks your bones. Take
a dose of nasty calomel today and yon
will feel weak, siok and nauseated
tomorrow. Don’t lose a day’s work.
Take a spoonful of Dodson’s Liver
Tono instead and von will wake up
feeling great. No more biliousness,
constipation, sluggishness, headache,
coated longue or sour stomach. Yonr
druggist says if yon don’t find Dod-
son’* Liver Tone aotz better than
horrible calomel your money iz wait-
ing for yon.
