The grapes were es|«cial)y tine, thu bunches well formed, evenly matured and very sweet, in fact better grafts than we have seen grown in the lower valley. The walnuts are a novelty, although Mrs. Jones says th» trees, which are about 18 years old now. have lorn more or less for several years. It will not prove disappointing to a great many people if in time the pro-; ducts of tlie foothills take a leading place in the commerce of this section. A couple of urchins of rather tender years to lie engaged in such an exploit broke into the Grange store last Sunday afternoon Manager Chas. Nelson hap pened to lie in the office, and hearing a noise in the back room, went to investi gate. He found one of the boys inside, having effected an entrance by the re moval of a pane of glass. By due pro cess of "pumping," the name of his con federate was learned and the confession elicited that their purpose was to secure money from the till.

The aches and pains of Rheumatism become a constant companion to all who are victims of this disabling disease. Much suffering could be avoided if the first warning pains of Rheumatism were heeded and the proper treatment at once taken. But the people generally are not acquainted with the cause of the disease, though thousands know its tor tures. Those who use liniments and ointments cannot understand why they grow worse each winter, and find them selves gradually becoming unable to get around as they once could; yet they know that their trouble came on at first as little aches and pains, which hardly attracted their attention.) Everybody should know more about rheumatism; they should know that it is a peculiar condition of the blood upon which all the liniments in the world can have no effect whatever. The best blood remedy is needed—one which is able to go to the very seat of the disease, ana force it out. Swift’s Specific (S.S.S.) is the right remedy for Rheu matism, because it is the only blood remedy free from tnereury, potash and other minerals which intensify the dis. ease, causing stiffness of the joints and aching of the bones.

It reaches even the worst cases where the doctors have made cripples with their prescriptions of potash and mercury. Mr. D. R. Johnson, an extensive lum ber dealer of Blackshear, Ga., writes: ‘ My wife was for years a sufferer from Rheumatism, and was treated constant ly, but could obtain no relief. The pain was first felt in her left shoulder, and extended in all directions, increasing in severity. The doctors said the dis ease was liable to strike the heart at any time, in which event death would be inevitable. "Every kind of treatment recommend ed for Rheumatism was given her, including many blood remedies, but none did her any good. She waa grow ing worse all the while, and was reduced to a mere shadow of her fotmer self. "It was at this critical period that Swift’s Specific was given her; the med icine seemed to reach the disease promptly, and she at once began to im prove. One dozen bottles effected a complete cure, and she has had no touch of the disease since.” Every one afflicted with Rheumatism Should take a remedy which cau reach their trouble.
