A Plea For Tlio Negro.
From the Canebrake (Alabama) News.
Tho open season foi niggers is now on.
Our much-respected fellow-towusmah,
Colonel Jackson, went out for a few
hours last week and bagged three fine
bucks. The Colonel says Ihe sport is
unusually good this season, but that tbe
woods are full of hunters.
This makes us want to say something
concerning the wanton slaughter of
about the only game left ns. While we
do not wish to cast any reflection upon
Colonel Jackson as a game hog, still it ia
plain to be seen tbat something must lie
done or this sport will soon be a thing of
the past.    *
Tune was when niggers were so plentiful in Alabama that it wasn't even
considered sport in kill oue. There I*
something wrong, and the trouble lien
with our game laws. While other gsme
is receiving the limit of protection at tint
hands of the slate, the genteel pastime
of bunting the frolicsome nigger goes nu
in a manner that threatens the end of,
tbis noble sport within a short time.
Where ouce crowds of jovons men anfl.
boys were wont to gather in the night io
the bark of the dogs and chase tin,
cunning and lucioiis 'possum over hill
and dale, they now assemble to tree thn
Ir sky nigger. Something must be done
and at once or this game will soon join
the bnftato and the moose nnd snoile-r
inspiring forjn of recreation will he only
a memory.
We call on all true sportsmen to join
ns in this move which has for its object
the preservation of an edifying spun,
l'rotect our game!

no hope for a resumption of work in tha

that a 20-stump mill was so recently
completed and it has only taken six
weeks to show that the expensive machinery was worthless as far as tlio Chap-
leau was concerned. The mill would not
save the values in the ore, even if tlie
output of the mine had allowed ol the
continuous dropping of the stamps. The
result though unwelcome was not unexpected.

The blood may be in bad condition,
yet with no external signs, no skin
eruption or sores to indicate it. The
symptoms in such cases being a variable
appetite, poor digestion, an indescribable
weakness and nervousness, loss of flesh
and a general run-down condition of the
system—clearly showing the blood hat
lost its nutritive qualities, has become thin
and watery. It is in just such cases thai
S. S. S. has done some of its quickest and
most effective work by building up tht
blood and supplying the elements lacking
to make it strong and vigorous.

In Justice to Herself, Her Husband and Her Children, Her
Health Should Be Her
First Consideration.
Thousands of women endnre the tor*
tures of living death and at last sue-
oumli to the diseases peouliar to their
sex without knowing of the life and
health which might be theirs if proper
treatment had been nsed. How pathetic is the story of thousands of
young mothers who every year are car*
ried to their graves leaving little children to struggle alone in the world
without the tender oare and wlte conn*
•el of • mother. And hov» deplorable
when it is known that there is a remedy so exactly suited to the needs of
suffering women that it cures the
most stubborn of their diseases.
Immediately after the birth of her
first child in 1800, Mrs. Grace Campbell, of Mo. 391 Logan street, Grand
Rapids, Mich., now 28 yeurs of age,
was afflicted with a complication of
diseases. Her story, us told in her
•wn words, follows:
"lhe birth of my first child left nie
in a deplorable condition. My system
was broken down and I suffered from
general debility. I was exceedingly
nervous and rheumatism also troubled
me. My appetite failed and the most
delicate and inviting food failed to
tempt me. I was thin and pale, and
had neither energy nor ambition. My
case had been growing steadily worse
for two years. I had used several so-
called remedies but found no onrative
qualities in them.
"In the summer of 1898 I was visit*
ing my grandmother in Ludington,
Mich., and there learned of tbe wonderful eures effected by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People. I tried the
pills and had not finished one box before I felt much better. I continued
taking them through the year and the
result was a perfect cure. I am no
longer nervous or rheuamtic and have
more than regained my lost flesh. I
certainly recommend tbe pills to all
who need them and their results have
always been beneficial."
