culty is kidney trouble, :"id the first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of
the kidneys and bladder and not to a
habit as most people suppose.
Women as well as men are made miser,

and both need the same great remedy.

Mr. Prescott to Leave Us.
After due consideration, and
yielding to the wishes of his father,
Mr. Wallace T. Prescott has de
cided to move out to, Dr. W. E.
Prescott's early in the new year to
reside permanently. Besides his
large farming interests, Dr. Pres
cott conducts a large country store,
and Mr. Prescott leaves Edgefield
to assist his father in looking after
his large business interests. He will
still retain his half interest in the
firm of May & Prescott, the status
of the firm remaining the same.
Edgefield will give up Mr. and
Mrs. Prescott with sincere regret.
Their loss will be very keenly felt.
Miss Mims' Master-Piece.
Within the last few days Miss
Eliza Mims has completed what
those who have seen it believe to
be her master-piece-the finest pro
duct of her creative genius. It is a
life size portrait of Mrs. Amanda
Watson of Anderson*, Mrs. C. E.
Burts' mother. While the people
of Edgefield have recognized and
appreciated Miss Mims' talent all
along, those whose good fortuno it
is to inspect this special piece of her
handiwork will be convinced that
she is constantly developing the
talent with which the God of nature
has so richly endowed her.
. Several days ago a gentleman
called the writer's attention to a
decision that was recently rendered
by Judge Aldrich to the effect that
a man has a right to place poison
on his own premises, even if the
fowls of a neighbor are poisoned
thereby. Where grain of one par
ty,1 for instance, is being destroyed
by the chickens of another the own
er of the grain, under Judge Al
drich's decision, has a right to poi
son the intruding chickens.
The gentleman who called our
attention to the decision regarded it
as being founded on justice. He
stated that if there were no
law bearing upon such cases one
man could purchase a quarter of an
acre of land, erect a fowl house and
raise a thousand chickens at the ex
pense of adjoining landowners.
Car of Mule-footed Hogs.
A novel sight for Edgefield was
the car of 100 mule-footed hogs
that arrived from Darlington, Ida
ho, last Thursday. They had been
on th? road 17 days, traveling a dis-,
tance of 3,500 miles. In addition to
the car of hogs, Mr. Wayne Dar
lington had a car of horses and a
large number of turkeys and pig
eons, besides his household effects.
We understand that the freight
alone on the four cars from Idaho
amounted to about $1,400. Mule
footed hogs are an unusual sight in
this part of the country. Instead of
being divided or cloven, their feet
are shaped like those of a horse or
