Presbyterian Punch and Ice
To-morrow, Thursday, afternoon

of the Presbyterian church will
serve ice cream and fruit punch on
the lawn of Mrs. Kate Minis for the
benefit of their church. We have
no hesitancy in recommending as
strictly first-class, every item on the
menu of the Presbyterian ladies.
Long ago they established a high
standard which they have never al
lowed to be lowered. If they can't
serve the best they will not serve
anything. Furthermore, you will re
ceive' full value for yourmonej7.

they can be induced to turn their
faces to Edgefield permanently.

Every Acre a Prize Acre.
While en route to the Yonce barbe
cue Saturday morning the editor of
JThe Advertiser, made it a point to
go by Mr. B. R. Smith's prize acre
of corn, which has been such a gen
eral subject of conversation. We
have never before seen so many
stalks of corn upon an acre of land.
Instead of being the same distance
apart, the/rows alternate with two
and four feet-a wide and a narrow
middle.1" The c?rn was planted very
close and is almost as impenetrable
as a river-b?ttom cane brake, espe
cially since the wind blew a large
portion of the corn down. It is
impossible to estimate the yield of
th*?, acre with any degree of accura"
cy. The corn has been considera
bly damaged by the wind, to what
extent is difficult to say. Be the
loss what it willjMr. Smith will har
vest a large number of bushels from
this one acre. His son, who is a
member of the corn club, also has
a very fine acre. The fact is every
acre of corn on Mr. Smith's ,farm
has the .appearance of being a prize
acre. He does'nt grow any "sorry"
An Opportunity to Take Cheap
Trip Over Clinchfield
Acting in concert, the chambers
of commerce of Spartanburg and
Columbia have arranged a trip over
the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio
railroad, leaving Spartanburg for
Dante,iVa.,on July 26 and returning
on thc 28th. The officinls of the
road, who are very courteous, capa
ble men. have engaged Pullman
coaches and dining cars, and will
conduct the excursion upon the same
plan that the recent South Carolina
press excursion was conducted,
i The round trip from Spartanburg
tjo Dante, Ya., including Pullman
and dining oar service both ways,
will be $17. If we mistake not, the
Southern railroad will put-on a spe
cial round trip rate. It is gener
ally conceded that mountain
scenery can not be found any
where east of the Rockies which
surpasses that along the ''Clinchfield
Route." This is a splendid opportu
nity to take the trip. Probably never
again will such a phenomenally low
rate be made. Write to Mr. Theo
dore Delion, Jr., Spartanburg, S
C., for further particulars.
The editor ofThe Advertiser re
cently took a similar trip over the
Clinchfield road Avith the Press as
sociation und we unhesitatingly
recommend it, to our readers.
Dr. L. R. Gwaltney is Dead.
Profound sorrow prevailed in
Edgefield yesterday when it became
known that Dr. Gwaltney had pass
ed away at his home in Rome, Ga.,
Monday .afternoon at 3:30 o'clock,
In his eightieth year. Owing to the
crowded condition of our columns
and the late hour of the arrival of
the sad intelligence, we can not say
in this issue what is in our heart to
say of this saintly man and of his
life of service. A fuller notice will
appear next week.

Mr. Editor, I want to ask you to

In gratitude for complete relief

from distressing kidney ills, thou

Doan's kidney pills. Residents of
thia vicinity who so testified, years
ago, now say their cures were per

proves the worth of Doan's kidney
pills to Edgefield kidney sufferers.
RL News'ora, 219 Washington
street, Augusta, Ga., says: "I take
pleasure in confirming everything I
slid .in regard to Doan's kidney
pills in my former public statement,
given in 1903. I have not had occa

since then. About a month ago I
felt a lameness in my back caused
by overlifting and I again began
tining Doan's kidney pills. They re

She Looked After his Clothes,
Two women ware- talking over

N Weakened by Oyer-Work.
Onhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood;
Weak and unhealthy kidneys are re
sponsible for much sickness and suffering,
therefore, if kidney
trouble is permitted to
continue, serious re
sults are most likely
io follow. Your other
organs may need at
tention, but your kid
neys most, because
they clo most and
should have attention
first. Therefore, when
your kidneys/are weak or out of order,
you can understand how quickly your en-''
tire body is affected and how every organ
seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or " feel badly," begin'
taking the great kidney remedy, Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root. A trial will con
vince.you of its great merit.
The mild and immediate effect of
Swamp-Root, the great kidney and
bladder remedy, is soon realized. It
stands the highest because its remarkable
health restoring properties have been
proven in thousands of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
Bhould have the best.
