community, and a member of thal

Dr. C. E. Burts Going to Colum
For several weeks, the people of
Edgefield of all denominations, of
every name and station, and of the
county at large, and the state as
well, have awaited with great inter
est the decision of Dr. C. E. Burts,
as to his remaining in Edgetield, or
accepting the call which had been
extended him to the First Baptist
church of Columbia.
Everything: that was legitimate
was done to induce him to remain
among the people of Edgefield, al
of whom have learned to honor and
love him for his own sake and for
his work's sake. A meeting of all
the men of the church was bald at
which he was present and at which
time he was assured of the great so
licitude of the church to have him
remain. The ladies of the church
also held a similar meeting and ex
pressed their earnest desire that he
should continue his labors among
us. All these spontaneous expres
sions of the church and community
were but the natural result of the
fact that since Dr. Burts came to
Edgefield, the church of which he
was pastor had become stimulated
and strengthened, enlarged and en
riched, beyond any other experience
of the past. The county at large has
found his presence and assistance a
benediction and inspiration. The
view point has been enlarged and
the horizon broadened by his great
mind and heart.
No one believed that Dr. Burts
really wanted to leave Edgefield,
and the people among whom he had
lived in so much harmony and good
feeling; for since his coming to
Edgefield he has had many and in
viting opportunities to leave this
field for others, in many cases more
convenient and lucrative. It was the
concurrent belief thar, if he should
leave, it would be at the call of
duty, and to him the right and
wisest thing to do.
And now that he is going and
will probably be with us but a few
weeks longer, everyone recognizes
and realizes his unusual gifts and
peculiar ability to fill any field and
occupy any position to which he
may be called, and so we feel that
although our particular field may
be deprived of his valuable services,
that the Baptist denomination at
larg? in South Carolina will be
profited by his entrance upon this
greater and broad*r field of activi
Our gratitude for his generous
services in the.riaak-'arid his ftb*4mg-j
[ififlu?nce among 'all the people of
our county, will remain throughout
the years, and our constant hope
for a long and happy and useful
life will attend him in his broader
field of activity in our capital city.

In an experiment recently made
by John Perkins, residing on rural
route No. 2. Henniker, N. H., the
results obtained far exceeded his ex
pectations. Mr. Perkins was so
pleased that he made a statement
for general publication, saying:
"For a number of years I was an
iuvalid from a combination of
troubles. I suffered terribly from
constipation and piles, and was so
stiffened with rheumatism that I
could not arise without assistance.
I wa9 also troubled with dizziness.
My stomach was out of order, my
appetite fickle, I felt dull, weak and
tired all the time, and was in a
generally rundown condition.
"My wife and daughter having
both used the Cooper remedies with
beneficial results. I decided to try
them. They proved helpful beyond
all expectations. The New Discov
ery soon put my bowels into good
condition, and the piles disappeared.
My appetite improved, and I began
to relish my meals, having no diffi
culty in digest ing all that I ate. The
dizziness soon left me and has not
"I used Cooper's Quick Relief
liniment as an aid to the New Dis
covery for my rheumatism, which
has not troubled me now for a long
time. The Cooper remedies worked
wonoers for me."
L T Cooper, whose medicine was
used by Mr. Perkins, claims that
stomach trouble is responsible for
nearly all illness, and that if the
stomach is restored to normal and
healthy activity, such diseases as
rheumatism, kidney and liver troub
les, etc., will quickly disappear.
His preparations have certainly
made a remarkable record. Weare
agents for them in this community.
