"After our child had suffered
from severe bronchial trouble for
a year," wrote O. T. Richardson,
of Rielmnlson's Mills, Ala., "we
feared it had consumption. It had
a bad cougbt all the time. We
tried many remedies without
avail, and doctor's medicine seem
ed as useless. Finally we tried
Dr. King's New Discovery, and
are pleased to say that one bottle
effected a complete cure, and our
child is again strong nnd
healthy." For coughs, colds,
hoarseness, lagrippe, asthma,
croup and sore lungs, its the most
infallible remedy that's made.

Also Rents the Business Room
Just West of the One He
Now Occupies.
Krom Wednesday's Pally.
M. Fanger closed the deal this
morning whereby he becomes the
owner of the business building he
now occupies fur a store room
and also rents the rot i in just west
of him, now owned by C II. Smith.
This gixes Mr. Fanger the two
rooms he formerly occupied. A
rent many changes ami altera
tions will be made in both rooms
within the next few days in order
to convert them- into one large
business emporium. A large
archway will be cut in the walls
between the rooms, as in former
lays, and the west room will be
used exclusively for his cloak and
suit department for both ladies'
and gentlemen's wearing apparel,
while the east portion of the
building will be used for his dry
goods and millinery lines.
Mr. Fanger has already pur
chased bis largo line of Wooltcx
Cloaks, Sluts, etc., for ladies, and
a large line of gents' furnishings'
and clothing, and in order to
handle the line he is compelled to
have more room.
Elsewhere in this issue of the
Journal will be found a large ad
vertisement announcing his "Bin
One-Half Price Alteration Sale on
Millinery." In this space you will
note that he offers every bat In
the house at just one-half price,
in order to close them out before
the carpenters and plasterers gei
busy in making the changes in
the rooms. Besides this, it is a
well known fact that Mr. Fanger
never carries over -anything In
the millinery line, nnd when he
says he is making a one-half
price sale he means it. Here is
your chance to get millinery at a
genuine bargain.
Of course he says he will make
a great many bargains In other
departments of his store. during
this sale, but the millinery line
must be sold and sold now, and it
one-half saving is an inducement
to the buyer it certainly should
move the goods.
