e evening of Jan. 29th., by the

more on the afternoon of the
thour train being about four
.ours late. I reported at the
ospital next mo~rrnng and at
ee placed m sself under Dr.
Vinslow's treaanmt. On the

horoug' emmination and pre

room and hoisted on an elev-ator
to the operating room, placed on

over my face and in less than two

similar, though not exactly the
samle as that by ejloroforn. it
seems to ine that the ether acts
quicker, and I sauk into a Iwo
found sleep without any tinkling
of bells or other seusation; and
in my case there was no nauseat
ing after effoets, as produced by
chloroform or morphine.
After the operation, which,
though terribly severe, I did not
feel, I was returned to my room
and laid on the bed, :,a Charies,
my son who, witnessel the
operation undertook to arouse
me from my death like slumber
by calling; "papa! papa',' and
slapping my fac2 and .shaking
me. After awhile I heard his
voice, as if he were a great dis
tance away, and finally I was
enough awake to ask how long
before the operation, and be
answ-ered: "oh! it is all over,"
From that time on until I left
the hospital, which was the
night of the 1st., of Mar., I found
myself in the hands of traind
riurses, modest, polite and
unassuming young la.ies, who
were to me as ministering angels
of mercy day and night. I had
but to touch a button at the head
of my bed and one would coni-d
and wait on me as kindly and
tenderly, as if she had been my
own daughter. And they did it
all so unpretentiously, without
any official stiffness. I under
took once or twice to apologize
for disturbing them 6o often,
especially at night, but the reply
was, it is no trouble, I am here
for that purpose and no apology
Dr. Winslow and his assistant,
young Dr. Charles Bagley, were I
also kind and very attenti-e to I
we and were always very polite.
The kind treatment that I received
at this hospital, with the fact !
that'my son saw m- :era times t
every day, went far towards sooth- t

ure- dtal of attention on the
part of all its readers. It was
som, t.ijn entirely inew as far as
this pr'per was concerned. The
firim, etch ai Mercantile Compny,
who made this new departure,
were highiy pieased with the re

practical business way from this
large advertisement. This first
big full page advertisement was

men . a featunre which was by no
means .wW. With the opening
of the fa! seasom they used a
full pag. ajdvertisement again
for two times in succession and
just in a few wmeks repeated the
same dose. Another merchant
then camne in with a full page ad
vertisement . and serval otbers
both in Winusboro and in other
towns followed with half page
advertisements. Then in the
beginning of the year the Cald
well Dry Goods Company came
in with a two page adyertise
ment that was a good one sure
and others followed with full
and half page advertisements.
Within the past twelve months
there have appeared in the News
and Herald twelve full page ad
vertisements and a good many
more half page ones.
There is not a single one of
tliese large advertisements that
has not attracted some attention
on account of the good display.

Has been the result of our efforts to supply
the trading public with a higher grade of
furniture than ever before brought to the
Winnsboro market. Even our most sanguine
expectations have been more than met. For
instance that large lot of Fine Rock
ers which we bought with hesitation are
now about all gone and we are daily expect
ing a larger and more varied shipment of
Rockers of the same high grade, and even
finer ones. As to Mattresses, espe
cially those of the higher class, the demand
has been very unexpected, and it has been
necessary to make a third big order, and
these ase now expected. Those beautiful
H a l R a cks too have been selling ex
ceptionally well and still others are coming
in. In fact the demand for all kinds of- Fur
niture of the higher grades has been such
that we shall spare no pains' to keep at all
times the very best in every line. When you
are wanting strictly hi'gh grade furniture,
you can't do better than come here, and you
will find this the best place too for the best
medium grade furniture forithe money.
How about a Washing Ma
