Instead of taking up the next

The Man in the Ranks.
While we are learning of the
great Generals who have made the
South famous, it no less behooves
us to pause for a moment and look
with tender, tear-dimmed eye upon
the man in the ranks, the man whose
duty it was to give unquestioning
obedience to orders, the man who
knew "not to reason why, . only to
do or die," in defense of his native
The man who dug the trenches
and built the breastworks; the man
who rushed to the onset at the word
of command, who faltered not nor
failed in the discharge of his duty
to his God and his country.
Just after the war between the
states, William Abney, writing of
a beloved young soldier who had
given his life for his country spoke
thus: "The historian of the war,
perchance, will deem that he has
discharged his obligation to posteri
ty, when his stylus has inscribed on
the historic scroll the name of each
Captain or colonel or Knight at
arms, who has figured in the event
ful story, the successes he has
j achieved and his vivats of popular
applause. But it will be the legacy
! of the faithful character to fill up
the chasm left by the more ambi
tious historian, and set down with
gold on lasting pillars the names
and unhonored laurels ofthose war
rior heroes, who though holding 1
subordinate stations in the military
arena, nevertheless dealt doughty
blows and performed prodigies of
valour in delivering their country
from the galling yoke of servitude.

What chances the man in the

Importance of Healthy
Edgefield Readers Should Learn
to Keep the Kidneys Well.
The kidneys have a big work to
do. All the blood in the body is
coursing through the kidneys con
stantly to be freed of poisonous
matter. It is a heavy enough task
when the kidneys are well, but a
cold, chill, fever or some thought
less exposure is likely to irritate,
inflame and congest the kidneys and
interrupt the purifying work.
Then the aching frequently be
gins and is often accompanied by
some irregularity of the urine-too
frequent passages, sediment or re
tention. Thousands testify to the
wonderful merit of Doan's kidney
pills, a remedy for the kidneys only,
that has been used in kidney troub
