A TESTIMONIAL-
Farmville N. C. July 1st 1907.
To whom this may concern.
This is to certify that I suffered
with constipation and
for years. In
fact my stomach trouble was
contracted during the civil war
while living and serving on the
frontier with Co. E. N. C.
Reg, Daniel's Brigade. Upon
returning from the war my
health gradually became worse
until my was such,
that I almost gave up to die I
was treated by the best skilled
physicians within reach,
without results,
and finally I was advised by Dr.
C. J. to discontinue
all medicines and drugs and try
the waters of Green Spring, on
the late Howell Joyner's farm,
which I did. From that day I
never took another dose of
cine, and to my surprise in a few-
days.
I found that I could eat
any thing I pleased without any
unpleasant feeling or burning
I sensation in my stomach. My
constipation was changed into
and instead of retched
and tired some nights I enjoyed
sweet rest and blissful sleep.
In two months I gained from
lbs. to lbs. Furthermore
during my suffering from
I had on both my less
what the doctors pronounced
eczema ulcers, which were as
large as the palm of my hand.
I began bathing them in the
I water and they healed in two
weeks without leaving the least
sign or scars. Twelve years have
elapsed since I began using this
water, and I have not felt the
least of indigestion or
seen any sign of ulcers I can
truthfully say I only wish all
suffering humanity knew us
much of the virtues of the waters

AGRICULTURAL MEETING.
Important Occasion fur Farmer of
Pitt
Under an made
by Congressman John H. Small

States department of agriculture.
He conies very highly com-
mended. He is well informed on
tobacco culture, but is an all
around good man. The other
men from this Bureau will be
Mr. who is an expert on
cotton. Mr. will bring
with him one of his devices for
testing cotton seed, which is a
simple arrangement whereby
farmers can screen out poor seed.
There will also be an expert on
drainage, probably. Prof. J. D

There will also be an expert
from the bureau of public-
roads, probably, Mr. Spoon, who
is most familiar with the con-
of sand-clay roads. We

appears, at the present time to
afford the best solution con
better public high

There also be an expert
from the bureau of forestry. The
conservation of our forests is a
most important matter,
become more important in the
future. This man will have
him views, and he will
be able, to give an ex-

short concise talks, in which they
will lay down a few

them perfectly to the

to take charge of the meeting,

Judge Long took the position
that if it was the purpose of

people of Greenville and Pitt

remember it, the first movement
for such school came from Pitt
county. Certain it is that the
people of that county have
heroically for the school,
and they have nothing
done to have the school located
at Greenville. All the
which made application

Greenville has been selected
as the site for the Eastern Train-
School for lady teachers,
which was authorized by the last
Legislature to be established in
the eastern part of this State.
There was quite a contest or
competition between a number
of towns for the proposed school.
Kinston. Rocky Mount. Wash-
New Bern. Edenton and
Elizabeth City all made liberal
offers, but Greenville
and won the prize.
It certainly speaks well for
the liberality and

These liberal bids also indicate

It may strike the average man
as a strange thing that the
of North Carolina, with
the large appropriations that are
made to it by the State and it
splendid prestige as a seat of
learning, should furnish so few
of the prominent leaders in our
political life. The two Senators
of the United States are Trinity
men; a third of our congressional
delegation are Wake Forest boys,
and our solicitors, judges,
and other prominent
come largely from the de-
colleges. All this,
too. in the face of the fact that
the Chapel Hill alumni are
as loyal as a band of Masons, and
in the various conventions are
always on hand to pull the wires
in favor of the graduates of their
alma mater. There must be a
reason why the University
lag behind the others in the race
for the offices, for everybody
knows that office is a passion
with the average Chapel Hill
man, and many a fond father for-
sakes his own church college and
sends his boy to the University
under the mistaken notion that
his chances for political promo-
are increased by having be-
hind him the influence of this
great college. A very wise and
observant gentleman gave us the

that the average man still has
