To relieve the worst forms of Rheumatism, take a teaspoonful of following mixture after each meal and at bedtime : Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-ha- lf one ounce Lompound Kargon, ounce; Compound Syrup Sarsapa-rill- a, three ounces. The harmless ingredients can be obtained from our home druggists, and are easily mixed shaking ihem them well in a bottle. Relief is generally felt from the first few doses. This prescription forces the inactive kidneys to filter and strain from .the blood the poisonous waste matter and uric acid, which causes Rheumatism. As Rheumatism is not only the most painful and torturous disease, but dangerous tolife, this, simple recipe will no doubt be greatly valued by many sufferres here at home, who should at once prepare the mixture to get this relief. It is said that a person who would take this prescription regularly, a dose or two daily, or even a few times a week, would never have serious Kidney or Urinary disorders or Rheumatism. Cut this out and preserve it. prescriptions Rhuematism Good which really relieve are scarce indeed, when you need it, you want it clog-ged-- DAY OH NIGHT Cowgill's Drug store (Incorporated) Teachers Pull State's Leg.

Xmas giving and Xmas visiting are more or less akin, and the pretty debutante, as well as the older girls, are already beginning to worry over which Invitation to accept. You will accept alright ; but there are other things which for lack of experience, this item might be well kept in mind. Well, no not ybu, gentle reader, not the Hickman or Fulton county girl but the others, you know. Suppose we begin at the very beginning. You have been asked by let ter for a short visit of a week or two. Be sure in answering it to repeat the days for which your hostess has asked you. This is the first rule on .your part. Also state in your acceptance the train on which you arrive and, if you wish add, the train on which you will depart. Whether or not you do the latter, never fail to do the former. Don't miss that train or change your mind and take another one. at See about your baggage-check- s the station yourself, unless you are met by a man of the family or a competent man servant who insists upon taking this duty on himself. It is best to give your checks to the baggage expressman who comes through the train, pay him and get a receipt. Have the change, in your pocket-boo- k to pay for the trunk when it arrives at the house. Never bor row the money from some one in the house or let your .hostess pay (or it. There is no intimacy or even relationship among friends that will allow this. From the moment you set foot in the house, whether the visit be for days or weeks, remind yourself over1 and' over that all the things in it, from the telephone tc the chambermaid are another persou's property, and that you must ask permission for their use. Do not make demands on the ser vants" in the house. They have oth er duties. When they offer their services to you accept them grac iously, but do not call the maid to fasten your gown fifteen minutes before dinner is served when she has to wait on the table. Ask the hours of meals and be punctual. Write that In your mind in letters,of fire. It makes no dif ference whether you are hungry or not, at the appointed hour be at the "fudge," the new "Divinity Fudge," a sweet thnt Is no moro ex pensive, that takes but little more time, but that Is far more delicious. Melt n cupful of sugar In a saucepan; when melted, pour It Into another saucepan In which thero Is already n cupful of cold milk. Put this pan on tho fire and cook slowly until the two have blended; than add two moro cup-filof granulated sugar, and one more cupful of cold milk, and reheat, cooking slowly until It Is of proper consistency to remove from the stove. At this time add a heaping tenspoonful of butter and a cupful of finely chopped nut meats; beat the mixture with a large spoon until almost cold, then spread It over buttered pans, and line for cutting, like fudge. For those who like cocoanut candles the following recipe for what Is known as "Cocoanut Strips" Is productive of an Inexpensive and palatable dainty: Cook two pounds of light brown sugar with a cup of water and a tablespoon-fu- l of butter until the mixture bolls. Cut the meat from a fresh cocoanut into shreds, and add it to tho syrup, cooking until it threads. Whip with the egg beater until it is creamy; then spread It in buttered nans and mark in strips for cutting. ' Another cheap candy, called "Nut Creams," Is made by boiling three cupful of granulated sugar with one cupful of rich cream. When of proper consistency remove from tho fire, whip briskly with the egg beater, and add one cupful of choftd. nut uieat. Spread over buttered tins and cut in squares. An excellent Imitation of one of the time-honore- newer delicacies. In place of the sho may make ls rrult and nut delicacy that cannot to tho housewife at Christmas time Is made by chopping a cup of nut meats with two cupfuls of dates, half n cupful of figs, und half a cupful of Maraschino cherries thn hnvo been drained tree, from liquor When chopped, and they should not ho chopped too line, mold into the shapes desired, and dip each piece Itrto n, syrup made by boiling half a pound of sugar with half a pint of water until It will harden like candy. Slices of orango or pineapple, and dates, figs or any kind of nuts may be coated la the sn 1110 manner. Now that maplo sugar may be obtained without great jiltTlcultr, an ox cellcnt candy may be made by boiling three cupfuls with a cupful and n half of sweet milk and half a tablespoon ful of butter for about ten minutes. At the expiration of this time beat with a spoon until the mixture Is both creamy and thick. It may then be spread In buttered tint to cool, or, for the sake of variety, the candy may be divided Into three equal portions, oho part to be served plain, another mixed with nuts, and the third with chopped candled cherries. Salted nuts are now so great a favorite that no elaborate dinner would seem completo without them, As ordinarily prepared, however, the salting of nuts Is quits a serious task but If the cook desires to savo tlmo in cooking them she may attain the ssme result more easily by dropping them lard by Into a kettle of deep preference and letting them remain from 10 to 15 minutes. When done they must b drained thoroughly being salted to taste, and they will be found to bo just as palatable as the nuts that have bevn prepared by the far more laborious process. If you are In search of a novelty. Instead of salting all the nuts for the Christinas dinner, .try the experiment of "brandylng" some of thorn. To do this, soak the nuts for about 36 hours In brandy French brandy, peach brandy or applejack will do then cover them with a thin fondant, or merely roll them In powdered sugar The result will be hailed with delight.

Christmss is really the world's festival every tribe and people upon the earth's surface observe it in some form. The forms may vary but the spirit is everywhere the same. The different nations of the world celebrate the virtues and illustrious deeds of their great men and we on this side of the water do the same when we celebrate the birth of Washington in February, or the birth of the nation in July, but in December the world celebrates an event which far surpasses the birthday of Washington, or Wellington, Napoleon, or Alexander the Great, even the birth of a nation. It is the birth of the world's Redeemer, who was given as an atonment for sin.

There is much cheer in a kind word and a "Merry Christmas." The value of a Christmas gift lies in the testimony it gives of the affect that prompts it. Beautiful and right it is that gifts and good wishes should fill the air like snow flakes at Christmas tide.

The various states, without, we believe, a single exception, have exempted the homes from seizure for even a just debt. In short, the protection and sacredness of the home goes side by side with that of the person.

The vote as announced by the committee is us follows t Miss Dosia Carpenter 122845 Miss Mintie Stoker 101760 Miss Virginia Royster 11975 Miss Pearl Stone 8800 Miss Ivy DeBow 3640 Miss LillieKnoer 1130 Miss Lillie Coffey 1100 The young ladies have been working hard from the beginning, but the greatest work has been done during the past two weeks. Many of the votes secured by the young ladles and their friends were held back until Saturday, the last day, when the rush began. From Saturday morn ing until the contest closed, the Courier force could hardly look after the demands of the workers. Satur day was our banner day, and it will take us two weeks to enter on our subscription list all the new names that were turned in. We scarcely had time to go to our meals ; it was the most strenuous day of our news paper experience. The Courier looked like a polling place on election day. The workers for the candidates beseiged the office all day, each anxious to hand in a name or a bunch of names. The parties managing the cam paign for the different contestants, while opposing each other, worked in a friendly way, and all through the contest a spirit of good nature prevailed. At midnight when the count of the vote was finished, the Courier editors delivered orders to the contestants or their representatives for the prizes which they had won. The first prize the Forbes Piano went to Miss Carpenter ; the second choice of a ladies gold watch or cut glass water set went to Mis? Stoker; the third, went to Miss Royster. We have made every offortto obtain photographs of the winners, but have failed to get all of them. Later, we ill print a likeness of these hand some young ladies. Since the contest started, we have added hundreds of new names to our list, and can now say that we have the largest paid. circula tion of any paper in the state. Speak subscriptions ing of Is touching the key-not- e of the contest. To be plain, the contest was inaugurated for no other purpose than putting the Courier list on a strictly basis. As matter of fact, the profit, in dol lars and cents, on the contest is of no consequence it required more than $950.00 to put us even; but it has served admirable our sole ob jectsreaching hundreds of new nomes ana getting our list an pain in advance. We have spent hundreds of dollars in getting ready for this new' business basis, and are glad to announce that hereafter all sub- criptious will positively be discon tinued at their expiration. Hereafter the Courier will not be forced on the subscriber. There is just as good reason for the grocer sending you another dollar s worth of grocer ies because you bought a dollar s worth last year, as there is for the editor sending you his paper because you subscribed for it last year. Its a poor buslnesss policy, ami from this date, we.cut loose from it. Our subscribers will be notified 15 days before their time is out, and if they do not respond, our mailing clerk has positive instructions to take your name off the list. 1 ac honest man or woman will not object to paying a dollar in advance and the rascal (several of them we have reason to know) cannot work his old game of taking the paper for a year and then marking it "refused" at the postofrlce, send his wife around to work the same thing in her name. This rule will apply to the richest man on our list as well as the poorest. The Courier will be printed, it only for the office force to read. of-fi- visited oney Ii'.ar.J ii sometimes fill IH I uLUhiv 1 " - here ate department stores, 10,000 people, loyinjw.fr born every four mln- child anJ a Jeath occurs every seven in tft"i nallnn Appointed by the Dictum of an Appreciative Buying Public Through Merit in Providing for Men and Young Men. 50c to uttl. nf wa I . reused cry day '.li Efll iw 1 Ai i In the greater $1.50 $2.00 to 4.50 50c .f,.

This renders it exceedingly difficult to work coal pits below that depth. This is the reason that Great Britain's Coal Commission has decided that mines are not workable below 4,000 feet. The thickness of the solid rocks building up the crust of the earth is at least 30 to 40 miles. At that depth the heat is such as would re duce everything on the surface of the earth to liquid. But the pressure of the overlying rocks is so great that until the relation of the heat to the pressure is known it cannot be said whether the earth at that depth is fluid or solid. restoration of The problems of any day are the for the permanent Indications of the keenness of Its con- peace throughout this section of the fidence.

As they whirled round, the lights on the mountain ash grew dim, and about the tree a soft incense gathered, and took on the form ot a lady of wild, un sneakable beauty, clad in vapory, trailing robes. When the dancers gave over, she was standing beside the tree In tn center ot tne ring, and gazing at Dan Derrick. There wat a kindness in her glance, but. for all that, poor Din'a knees shook under him. "Well, all's well that ends well," Hut you were a very she said. bold man.

The Lulbegrud church, a few miles from Mt. Sterling, burned Tuesday morning. This church was 115 yearsold, being built in 1793, and was the oldest as well as one of the most historic in the State. It was made of logs and weather-boatd-ehad a fire place four or five feet in width with a chimney of stone on the outside. The house was constructed so as to have twelve corners representing the twelve Apostiles, and in appearance resembled a cross. It was founded by the Particular or there being Old School Baptists, very few of them now in this state. The church was named from Lul- beerud creek by .one of Daniel Boone's party when in camp in that neighborhood. "Raccoon" John Smith and Boone, a descendant of Diniel Boone, preached in this church in days. William Rupard, pioneer who died a few years ago, was its pistor for forty . years.. Service were held once a month, but the membership had grown very small. The blaze is supposed to have caught from fire left in the building Monday when a funeral was conducted.

Hon, and Saturday, at the suffrage neaaquariers in the Martha Washington hotel, a staff of stenograhers and se rretaries was at work organizing the campaign on a tremendous scale. This petition addressed to the senate and house of representatives reads as follows : "We the undersigned citizens of the United States more than 21 years of age hereby petition your honorable body to submit to the legislatures of the several stales for ratification an amendment to the national constitution which will enable women to two ways by which women may procure the franchise," said Miss Hay. "First, the legislature of each state can submit the are deter We will pay particular attention to people from the country and attend to their wants vote."

The diver found the bottom! of another river which runs under Bird's Point and Cairo and the Mississiopi antl Ohio rivers, at right angles with the two rivers. This underground river is believed to be as large as the Mississippi, though with not so swiit a current, and the water is of a different color and will not mix with the water of the Mississippi. The scarcity of fun at this point is attributed to this new found underground river, where the fish are supposed to have gohe. The Haliiday Brothcts, of Cairo, are going to sink a shaft to see if the river can bjjocated under their property in Cairo, and if it is local cd, property may be very cheap in Cairo and Bird's Point. Scott County Citizen. Law and Order League. In response to a call from the city dads for a mass meeting, Friday night, about 400 citizens of Hickman met at the court house, and organiz ed a Law and Order League for the purpose of helping the city oTGcials cope with the present state of law lessness. The organization was per fected by electing: J. W. Cowgill, Pres. F. T. Randie, Judge F. S. Moore, Secy. And the following to constitute the Advisory Board: J. A. McClure and L. C. Lunsford, East Hickman; S. L. Dndds and Dr. J. M. Hub bard, Old Hickman ; R. M. Metheny and J. J. Kyan, West Hickman. This new organization will endeav or to make the way of the transgres sor as hard as possible, and much enthusiasm was manifested. Good short talks were made by Judge Roney, W. H. Jones, S. L. Dodds, R M. Metheny, J. W. Cowgill and others. This is a commendable undertak ing. I he league can, and will doubtless, do much good. They will wage war on qvery form of evil and law violation. Bootlegging, profanity, pistol toting, gambling, drunkenness, etc., will all be given prompt atten tion. The W. C. T. U. is really responsi ble for this good move thanks to the ladies and they are not going to be satisfied until the laws are enforced in every particular.

OchRfr IMir-L-tt- l PlaH When the saloons were "voted out of Hickman several years pist, the citizens of Hickman and vicinity formed a Law and Order League, I suppose, to uphold the law and sup press the sale of liquors by bootleggers, and for a short time it served its purpose, or, I suppose it did for there was a short period in which there was very little bootlegging, but judging from present conditions this must be dead, as it seems that the bootlegging business is There must, undoubtedly, be some way by which so much drunkenness on the streets could be stopped. Where do they get the whiskey Can a man go to Hickman on Saturday afternoon and mail an order to Cairo or Nashville and get it the same day ? Yet they get the goods somewhere, or at least they get drunk. Now, dear Christian people of Hickman, and all who would like to see our city noted for its good coii-duand high morals, the Great God of Heaven, helped in our battle to drive the saloons from our little city, and the same God rules the universe today, and will assist us to put an end to this bootlegging and drunkenness.

Closo at hand aro scores of different ltlnds of steam enginesmodels of perfection together with railway carriages, stations, tunnels, signals, and all tho rest of It, Just like a real railway. Over thero wo catch a glimpse of tho a complcto plating machine, and hundreds cf clccirlcal toys which pro going to bo all tho rago this season among thoso who can bo favored with costly playthings.

All tho drivers aro really very clover in Tolland. and A' long Uno of spirited rocking-horses marks the way to tho dolls' praucln Jwistce.' This Is essentially tho girls domain. It Is scarcely posslblo to conceive anything which s not here represented. Somo of tho houses are largo enough to be called mansions, they are provided with a complcto staff of servant, sn ample larder, a thousand and one s Ho-gce- forts, and, to round off the luxury of It all, a smart motor car stands at tho front entrance, awaiting tho appearanco of my lord and lady. Was thero ever such a show of dolls seen before? They seem to be everywhere, displaying their finery. Tho undress doll Is away on a top shelf, because, tho popular doll must bo In tho fashion In tho way of dress. Tho adult doll, with hair dono In the latest style, Is ono of the features of the place. Baby dolls nro apt to bo tiresome, but tho grown-uparo always on their best behavior. Of course, tho universal ambition to soar In tho air Is represented In Toyland, otherwise the placo would bo Incomplete; tons which fly up to tho celling, tops which sing In the air, plums, apples, pears, and otbor fruit danco about most gayly. Swimming men, dancing Scotchmen, snowballs s tufted with small toys, circuses como In view as and humpty-dumptyou wandor along; whllo games galoro call aloud for Inspection. Toyland certainly never was so full of splendid things for thoso who can spend dollars and cents. Tako another turn, howover, and we como to Tiny Town, where tho purchasing power of tho penny is best represented. Sots of kitchen utensils, traction engines, gunboats, cruisers, motor omnibuses, railway engines, black smiths, sawyers, county council trams, lighthouses, dancing ballet girls, dolls' furniture, sewing sets, gold fishes In globes, minus tho clnborato mechanism of tho moro oxponslvo type, but all mado to work. Comical figures, magnetic divers, shooting galleries, skin animals, and hundreds of musical contrivances aro priced at a few cents. In tho courso of n short ramble through Toy-lan- d It Is Imposslblo for us to seo all that Is to bo seen, but It Is clear that Santa Claus has never bad such a busy tlmo in making arrangements for his Christmas evo visit, Tho season according to tbo great toy emporiums whose wondorful stocks aro rovlowcd above will probably mako a record from tho business standpoint. Each succeeding year brings a growth In .the demand for better class toys; and it la a happy circumstanco that tbo English maker is awakening to tho possibility of big business in this direction. Tho German snatched tho soldlor trado from the French, and for years maintained a practical monopoly; but in. turn tho German has been completely ousted by tho Englishman. In, somo of tho largest toy places In Loudon this Christmas not a slnglo foreign mado soldier will be sold. The sama success Is apparently awaiting English enterprise In regard to dolls' houses. Germany still holds tho Held as regards dolls, s y little com but in tho course of tlmp even this mar undergo f Tnrlanri a change. Games bid fair to become extremely popular. Dlabolo. or "the devil on two sticks," has already captured Tarls, and tho demand -, in London suggests the likelihood of Its becoming a great craio there. At a moment when the toy lndutry In France Is on tho wane, tho famous caricaturist Cnran d'Acho comes to tho rescue.

Unablo to repress tho humorous strain In his soul, he Imcharparted to his creations a acter which has already mado them tho rago of Paris; and to Judgo from tho Burlington they will ere long becomo qulto a craze mirth-provokinAr-ca- From the cheap mechanical toy which Impedes our progress through tho streets, as displayed on the pavement by tho enterprising camelot, to tho wonderful creations which tho Naln UIcu, that paradise of French children for nearly a century, has provided for tho pampered darlings of tho wcnlthy, tho predominatIs ing clement In tho French toy of mechanical lngounlty. Nover has this been moro noticeable than in tho novelties which the manufacturers are preparing for tho coming holidays. The avcrnge French maker of toys scorns to offer tho llttlo ones such slmplo things as our childhood knew; and tho wooden doll and aro to bo found only in tho woolly poorer districts. Dolls made of wood thcro arc, hut the wood Is only a casing for wondorand ful works, and tho lamb must bo abla at least to frisk. Among tho moro cxpcnslvo tqys. and onp which wjll give tho small boy with a gun an opportunity to prove, himself a crack shot, la tho pigeon shooting device, which Is nn attractive novelty. Upon a polo about eight feet In Is affixed, much after tbo height a cross-ba- r fashion of a parrot's perch, except that tho cross-piecIs mobllo, and Is mado to swing in a circular direction by means of a slmplo nrrangoinont of weights llko thoso of a cuckop clock. At each end of tho cross bar is a colored cardboard pigeon, with outspread wings. Tho machlnory is sot in motion, and a shot from a toy gun knocks tho bird down. Mlnlaturo automobiles thcro aro in plenty, but, tho latest filing In tho toy motorcar lino is run by electricity, and hus, if you please, a powerful olcctrlc headlight and movablo hood. It is doubtful, however, If 0011 to magnificent a plaything as this can haVd tbo atto-da- y baa-lamllfe-slze In London. youngstor which traction for the was provided by tho llttlo tin "automobile a catastrophe" which was tho great novelty of last Christmas, and promises to bo popular upto-dato again this year. This diminutive car held two doll passengers, tbo chauffeur and bis lady. You wound It up, and it sped along tho floor right merrily for a few yards, when suddenly terrible shock tho catnitrophe? thero was Tho car came to pieces, and Uie unfortunate wore hurled Into the air and fell in pitiful heaps beside tho machine. Sometimes tho realism was so intenso that the luckless motorists fell under tho shattered machine, and then their fato was too horrlblo to dwell upon. You picked up tho pieces, and put them together, and revived the doll corpses, and set the car going again, and so on. You could have the moat exciting accidents all day long. Hut automobiles nro vleux leu now, and even steering balloons of tho Santos Dumont type no longer find favor with the toy manufacturers. This Chrlstmns, the relit Noel who Is tho French child's 8anta Claus will scatter toy aeroplanes along his path. To be sure, they havo to bo suspended by a string from tho chandelier, but If the string is a black thread It Is hardly visible, and tho illusion quite successful. Aproos of flying things, tho top of that denomination which figures among the novelties is a most fasctnntlng affair, though why "top" Is not clear. A light metal disc mado to represent n bird or a butterfly, with wing tips upon a ring, is placed upon tho floor. What appears to bo a wand, finished with a rubber cup, is pressed against tho center of tho dlso and briskly withdrawn. Tho dlso whirls rapidly and rises In tho nlr, flying off in various directions.
