operties. ? Swamp
Root fulfills almost
every wish in over
pain in the back, kid
neys, liver, bladder
and every part of the
urinary passage. It
corrects inability to
hold water and scalding pain in passing it,
ar bad effects followinguse of liquor, wine
ar beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
through the d&y, and to get up many
times during the night.
Swamp-Root is not recommended for
everything but if you have kidney, liver
ar bladder trouble, it will be found inst
the remedy you ne?d. It has been thor
oughly tested in private practice, and has
proved so successful that a special ar
rangement has been made by which all
readeis of this paper, who have not ali
ready tried it, may have a sample bottle
sent free by mail, also a book telling
more about Swamp-Root, and how to

First Honor Graduate.
v We congratulate our fair young
friend and neighbor, Miss Ellen
Dunovaut, upon the splendid record
she has made ait the College for
Women.. ^Sorne time - ago she was
elected president of her class and
was during the past session business
manager of the college annual, but
greater than all of these honors was
the position she occupied in her
class. Of the sixteen who gradua
ted last week, Miss Ellen was the
first honor graduate. Any young
lady should be very proud of a di
plomafrom the College for Wo
men but to hold one as a graduate
with highest honors is one to be
coveted. Again we extend sincere
congratulations. Buncombe, Pig

Guerard, at worse home she died,
were'brought to Edgefield Thurs

home that she loved so well and in
which,.she had passed so many hap
py years. Rev. Royal Shannon
house conducted the funeral.
. Mrs.\ Guerard waa a woman, of
unusual force and strength of mind.
Her life was one of Christian ser
vice. In the benevolent work of her
church, Trinity Episcopal church,
she easily ranked among the lead
ers. Her wise counsel and -well poised
judgment were sought and deferred
to whenjany new enterprise or work
was to be undertaken. "Mrs. Guer
ard will be greatly missed, in the
hvitrtej but nowhere will the loss
?.-vcasioned by her death be more
cuehly felt than among her co
