forward to the Grims barbecue on

Lost Two Good Mules.
Mr. W. G. Wells has had the
misfortune to lose two good mules

three weeks ago and died soon after
being carried to the house. Thc
other one was taken sick while com
ing home with a load from Augus
ta last Thursday. Mr. Wells brought
the mule to Edgefield for treatment
but it died in a few minutes after
reaching town. The loss of two

Official Corn Inspector.
Judging from the number of in
vitations that the editor of The Ad
vertiser is receiving from far and
near to inspect fine corn, it seems
that he has by common consent been
appointed-official corn*inspector for
the county. In order to accept all of
the very kind invitations we will
have to buy, beg or ^borrow an auto
mobile, or send for Wright and his
airship. But an airship would hard
ly be safe7as it might become en-j
tangled in some of the tall prize
corn that can be seen bert: and yon
der over the county. The excessive |
rain has caused much ot* the petted
corn to grow taller than its owner
desired. Well, seriously, the writer
purposes visiting many parts of the
county during the next few weeks,
as we desire to see as much of the
fine corn as possibler-We'Tfave been~
making corn a study-a ?hobby, if
you please-during the [past two
years, therefore to our eyes there is
nothing more attractive or more in
spiring than a field of very fine corn,
which can be seen on ajmost every |
farm this year. t)o not be surprised

Often The Kidneys Are
Weakened by Over-Work.
Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Bloody
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
to follow. Your other
organs may need at
tention, but your kid
neys most, because
they do 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 o* the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
should have the best.
