Every woman loves to think of the
. time when a soft little body, all her
own, will nestle in her bosom, fully
satisfying the yearning which lies in
the heart of every good woman. But
yet there is a black cloud hovering
about the pretty picture in her mind
which fills her with terror. Tne
dread of childbirth takes away much
of the iov of motherhood. And vet it
need not be so. For sometime there
has been upon the market, well-known
and recommended by physicians, a
liniment called
Mother's Friend
which makes childbirth as simple and
easy as nature intended it. It is a
strengthening, penetrating liniment,
which the skin readily absorbs. It
gives the muscles elasticity and vigor,
* prevents sore breasts, morning sickness
and the loss of the girlish figure.
An intelligent mother in Butler, Pa.,
says: " Were I to need Mother's Friena
aeain. I would obtain 9 bottles if I had
to pay $5 per bottle for it."

store. $1 per bottle.

THE FIREMEN FEAST
i Delightful Baaqnet Enjoyed by the Staam
Fire Engine Company
One of the most plea*a-it social
gatherings that ihe reporter for The
News and Herald has enj >yed for a
long time wa3 the banquet of the
uteam fire engine company at the
Duval hotel on last Wednesday nigbt.
Our volunteer fire department have
done noble and unselfish work for the
community on many critical occasions,
and if anv organization deserves to
have a good lime now and then it is
? the fire department. The members
certainly bad a good time Wednesday
night. Thcje firemen are wont to do
' the right thing at the right time, and
8 j it is not surprising that this festive
, i occasion wai carried out just rigbt
w I to give not only the members a most
' | pleasant evening but the invited
j guests.
) Capfc. Jordan acted as toastmaster |
with his accustomed ease and grace.
I "Oar Invited Gaesto" was responded
5! to by Mr. J. E. McDonald. Although
he said that be had been busily engaged
with other matters Mr Mc'
Donald did fall credit to himself and

appreciated in the community.
''Winnsboro, Its Pa?-t, Present and
Future," was mo*t hippily responded
to by Mr. T. K. Elliott. Mr? Elliott
displayed mauy of the elements of the
philosopher in depiciing the characteristics
of our ancestors who founded
Winniboro, and in showing how theic
impress had been lelt oil the place,
aad he showed that he was a man of
versatility by easily gliding from stern
philolophy ioto poetry and humor, all
I of which was to the point.
' "The Press" fell upon Mr. W. D.
1 Douglas?.
k "Our Schcois" very appropriately
found a respondent in Mr J. Frank
1 Fooshe, who, has beeD untiring in his
' energy and work to advance the educational
work of the community. # Mr,
Foosbc gave some school facts that
were as complimentary to Winnsboro
as they were surprising to many of J
bis interested hearers.
"Woman", the last regular toast,
i found a competent advocate in Rev.
C. E. McDonald. Eloquence, wit and
J good poetry ran through his speech.
No one contributed more to the pleasure
#f banquet than be.
Messrs. T. fl. Ketchin, Jno. J. Neil
and Capt. W. G. Jordan, in response
to calls, contributed to tbe pleasure of
the evening by their pleasant remarks.
Tbe banquet was a decided success,
and we trust that the firemen may
enjoy many more of the same kind.

.QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the
largest sale of anv medicine in the
civilized world. Your mother* and ,
grandmothers never thought of using
anything else for Indigestion or BiilAncnocc
Dnctnra tufira Rrarr.fi. and
they seldom beard of Appendicitis.
Nervous Prostration or Heart Failure,
etc. They used August Flower to
clean out the system and stop fermentation
of undteested food, regulated
the action of the liver, stimulate the
nervous and organic action of the system,
and that is all they took when
feeling dull and bad with headaches
and other aches. You only need a
few doses of Greer'o August Flower,
in liqnid form, to make you satisfied
there is nothing serious the matter
with yon. For sale by McMaster Co.,
