The following verses ar so appli
cable to the case, I quote them here:
Farewell, Big Boy, farewell,
'Twas painful. to my heart
To see thy chances of escape
Was that old steer and cart.
Methinks I see thee now,
With axle-trees all broke,
And wheels with nary hub at all
And hubs with nary spoke.
But though the mud is deep,
Thy wits will never fail;
That faithful steer will pull thee out
If he don't pull out his tail.
I am receiving so many nice polite
'>uns these days from vice accommo
dating and courteous creditors, and I
feel that it would be impolite for me
not to acknowledge receipt of them,
and as I can not afford postage to
reply to all personally, I ask space
in your valuable paper to thank each
and every one of them for what they
have done for me. And I hope that
they may live long and continue their'
good deeds to myself and others; and,
in the language of the immortal Em
met, "Let no man write my epitaph
-let not my epitaph be written until
they are paid."

CEABLIE ROBINSON STARS IN
ANNUAL FAIR WEEK GAME
.n the a'al sair week. game of
foot-ball, Clemson defeated Carolina
by the score of 3 to 0.
On the Clemson team were three
men from Fairfield county, who play
ed the entire game, Charlie Robinson,
Dutch Tennant, and Harvey. It can
be said of Charlie that he won the
game by his drop kick in the last few
minutes of the fourth quarter. This
former Mount Zion star tried one
kick but it was blocked and the ball
was recovered by him, and on the
next attempt he placed the ball
squarely between the bars for the
only score of the game. He not only
kicked this drop kick, but he punt
ed as well if not better than Snipes,
the Carolina punter, during the whole
game. He also made several pretty
tackles during the game.
Tennant, the husky guard, played
an unusually good game. He was right
there when it came to breaking up
line plunges. He seemed to have put
"pep" in the team as he was seen sev
eral times to slap the players on the
back and also talk to them.
Harvey, the young fellow who hails
from Woodward, played a hard and
steady game. He is one of the best
players on the Tiger team and can
stand a lot of punishment, as he show
ed in this game.
On the sidelines was another old
Mount Zion star, who was ready and
rearing to get in the game, and that
was Andrew Cathcart, better known
as "Gilly". From all reports it seems
that "Gilly" will be a regular next
Winnsboro and Fairfield are proud
of these sons and they will be watched
with interest in the remaining games
of their college career.

FA(S IN HIS CASE.
It is doubtful if there has ever
-been a medicine endorsed by so many
ministers of the Gospel as has Tan
lac. Indeed, there is scarcely a faith,
creed or denomfation, in all the land
in which one, or more, of the clergy
men has not publicly expressed their
indebtedness to the Premier Prepar
ation for the benefits they have de
rived from its use.
One of the latest to speak out in
this connection is Rev. B. M. Bridges,
a widely known and beloved Baptist
preacher, residing at Mooresboro, N.
C., whose statement follows:
"Tanlac has given me a good ap
petite, toned up my system and re
newed my strength in such a grati
fying way that I am glad to recom
nend it to anyone who is in a run
down condition. For ten years past
I have had such a severe case of in
digestion that I could not find any
thing to eat that agreed with me.
Finally I became very nervous and
could get but very little sleep or
"It seems that I took nearly ev
erything to get myself right, but
nothing helped me until I ran across
Tanlap. My nperves-are so much bet
ter now thai my sleep is sound and
refreshing. rI enjoy my meals and
have also g4ined weight. I can say
from nexpernce .that Tanlac "is a
sple ehcine and tonic, for it
has up wonderfully."
