' WOMEN IK TitOUBLE.
5he Approach, of Motherhood is the
Occasion of Much Arriety to All*
Every woman dreads the ordeal
| through which she must pass in becom[
ing a mother. The pain and suffering
! which is in store for her is a source ol
I constant anxiety, fear and dread, to
say nothing of the danger which the
! coming incident entails. The joyous
anticipations with which she looks for*
ward to baby's coming gives way to an
indescribable dread of the crdeal when
she fully realizes the critical and trying
event which will soon approach and
have to be endured.
Women should hail with delight a
remedy which insures to them immunity
from the pain, suffering and
danger incidental to child-bearing.
Suca a remedy is now offered, and
women need not fear longer the hour of
childbirth. "Mother's Friend"?is a
scientific liniment?and if used before
confinement, gently and surely prepares
the body for the great requirement?
and changes it is undergoing, insures
safety to both mother and child, and
lakes her through the event with comparative
ease and comfort. This wonderful
remedy is jpraised by every
woman who lias used. it.
What woman is not interested in
"Mother's Friend?" This wonderful
remedy has been tested and its priceless
viiue proven by the experience ol
thousands of happy mothers who
have used it during the most critical
period of woman's life?the approach
and culmination of motherhood.
It has won their everlasting praise,
for it gave them help and hope in
their most trying hour and when
most needed. Every woman may soma
day need "Mothers Friend." The
little book, "Before Baby is Born,'1
telling all about it, and when it should
be usei, will prove of great interest and
benefil; to all expectant mothers, and
will be sent free to anv address upon
application to the Bradneld Begulaioi
Cbmp* jay, Atlanta, Ga.
?Catawba Falls has for a number of
years been a favorite resort for camping
parties, and each summer a crowd
from here goes up and spends several
days, at least, on the banks of the
river. The first party to visit there
this summer left town on Monday
evening, and will remain about a
week. The party consists of ten or
twelve young fellows and a jolly timo
is anticipated. Messrs J. J. Neil, Jr.,
Henry Gooding, C. F. Davis, E. P.
Davis and Jack Pressley are among
the crowd.

THE FAIRFIELD SUMMER SCHOOL

r,very small, and there were
not ci gb present to mike it worth

short lime they adjourned until Tneslmrtrniror.
Prnfc. P,_ A. Rraeaer
and C. E. Johnson are the teachers in
char&e and Miss Merritt is one of the
instructors. It is most disappointing
to these teachers to have the school
open with such a s]im attendance and
it is to be hoped that each day the
number will increase. Last summer
the attendance was good and the
county teachers seemed to take a great
interest in the work, and it is greatly
regretted that less interest is being
manifested this summer.

These old wells around town are
nuisances anyway, and should be

particular is a trap set for such dangerous
experiments as it is entirely
hidden by shrubbery and weeds. Had
this old well not been so nearly choked

enough to render assistance so quickly,
he would in ;all probability nave lost

MR- F. H. McMASTER.
One of Fairfield's Sons a Candidate for the
Legislature from Charleston.
Tbe Charleston Post contains a card
from Mr. F. H. McMaster, of thai
city, announcing himself as a candidate
for the bouse ot representatives. .
Mr. McMaster is a son of Mr. Gr. H.
McMaster, and is a native of Winnsboro,
but for- several years he baa
made his^home in Charleston. He is
a young man of sterling worth and
fine character, and will, we are sure,
make a fine ran for the place, flere,

are sure that no better mail could be
elected, and they know that he will
render good and faithful service.
The race will be watched with interest,
and he has the best wishes of this
community for his success.
The following from the Charleston
Post is a notice of Mr. McMaster's
speech at a recent political meeting.
It will be read witn interest here:
Mr. F. H. McMaster, candidate for
the House of Representatives, was the
next speaker. Mr. McMaster proved
a forceful speaker and had the crowd
with him from start to finish and
made a splendid impression.
He declared that he stood on the
platform of Jervey and Daokin and
was a straightout Democrat from start
to finish lie said he was against imperialism
and for home rnle.
Mr. McMaster said he was an upcountry
man and was proud of it, but
he loved Charleston and had made it
his home. If he wis elected he
would feel highly honored and would
serve the people to the be^t of his
ability, [and would show the people
throughout the Slate that Charleston
does not draw factional lines, as has
been charged.

THC SUMMER SCHOOL AT WIJiTEROP.
Mr. Editor: I wish I had the time to
write yon fully abont many of the
excellent . things the teachers of the
summer tchool are enjoying. In t.d
- ?- -n.
anion to tne nnny vaiuatne courses ui
study .that are beiog offered by the
various members of tbe faculty which
is exccedirglv strong Ihis \ear, several
iectures arc being given by various
prominent u,en and these are proving
of tbe greatest value and interest.
Already Prof. Hammell, Prof.
Angder, Dr. Cbas. Foster Smith, and
Dr. J. P. Kicard have lcclured to large
audience?.
Without doubt the most inleresliDg
and instructive of these lectures was
the one by Prof. Haramell on the 6nbjecl
of wireless telegraphy. Prof.
Hammell is in charge of ths department
of physics, bere in the vummer
school, and is doing most practical
work, his pupils makiDg all the necessary
apparatus in the class room.
From the very first his regular course
of study has grown in popularity with
the teachers here in attendance, and
bis extra work in manual training has
been equally enjoyable. Having won
su:h laurels to himself by his class
room work, all were anxious to greet
Vim An iVio Thfln tnn Ihn

attractiveness of having a lecture on
so new and great a subject as wireless
telegraphy increased the interest in
the lecture and ihe lecturer.
Instead of being, as many would
have supposed, a dry, scientific lecture
on an obstruse subject, it was a simple
conversational discussion of a simple
principle of science, illustrated by
num3rous drawings and a full set or
telegraphic apparatus. Simplicity of
language and manner characterized the
hour that was so er>j ?yed by all. To
bernii with there was apparatus lllus
~ ~ C k t
tratingibe very hr#.*.:..~e of telegraphy,
when Ihewii. to u.c return
current was used. Tbeu the second
step of ihe use of the ground wire was
Hlnstrat'd in f-nch a simple ard prrc
tical way that even the very young
might have understood it. Next came
the third stage?the use of no wirp at
all?and this third in fact i<? the > m.
plest of all. Suffice it to say that Piof,
Ha mm ell had his receiving apparatus
on the rostrum in the chapel and the
sending machine in a distant room.
I No wire connected the two, and yet a
message was sent, though two walls
intervened. Not only was a naestSLgr
sent, but by a means of a curre?.generated
in the way a
light was lighted. Tin.a in addition
1 to these simple experiments, he also

showed bow a message could be taken
or sent from a train in motion.
As soon as She lecture was over, I
tried to arrange with Prof. Hammell
to come to Winnsboro to give our
town the benefit of his great work, and ^
after several days he b*6 arrauged his g
work to be with us on the ?veniog of t
the 15th of this month. Prof. Davis ?
most heartily endorses tie idea of t
having him with us as does also Mr. c
Matthews. Both of these will have t
something to say in regard to Prof.
Hammell as a man and as a lecturer.
1 am sure that Winnsboro has not
1?? -x ; T E
naa a more lmereisuijg jeciure eiuro x .
have been in the town. Tbe great ?
interest centers in the wonderful ?
talent of the man who lectures and the c
simple way in which he presents a
snbject of which be is a master indeed.
I might add ihat Prof. Hammell was
one of tbe first Americans to test the
nse of the Xrays, and that with these
he has performed seme experiments
that bare thrown much light on medical
praetic?. All the apparatus be
aees was made by his own bands, and fl
is of a very high order of workman- I
ship. In Prof. Hammell'a presence
one is before one of tbe greatest
teachers of physics in America and an
inventor of the highest order. To
kno v is to aiimire him. and (be more 1
you know hiin the greater tbe admira- b
tiou. I am sore I have been very g
fortunate in fecuring him to lecture in a
Winnsboro, anJ I hope, Mr. Editor, c
that \oa will do all you can through f
your paper to encourage a large nt- ?
lend-itce. lam pnre thit rvt?ry.mai, |
woman ai.d child that hears him will ?
be grateful that it has been their 8
privilege to bear so distinguished a ?
man discuss so new a subject. Hoping
that a very large audience will greet
him at the court house on the evening
of the 15ib, *
