Annual Excursion.
On August 1-2 the Southern rail
road will operate a special tram
from Augusta to Washington, D.
C., making the very low rate of
>'12.75 from Edgefield to \u? na
tional capital and return. This will
give those who desire to taite a sum
mer trip a splendid opportunity to
visit Washington. From an educa
tional standpoint there is no other
city in America that offers so many
attractions to visitors. A week
could be spent in Washington very
profitably and then lhere would be
many things of interest yet to be
seen. We would like to see a num
ber of Edgefield people take advan
tage of the very low rate to Wash
ington. There are also special rates
offered to points in Virginia and
North Carolina. Read the large ad
vertisement of the Southern rail
road in this issue.
Consider the Knocker.
One of our exchanges said recent
ly: "Newspaper men have a hard
time. If we say nice things in our
paper, we seldom hear from them,
but if we make a mistake, or if
some one fails to see what they
think we ought to see, the paper is
criticised."
That's too sadly true. Its an old
saw "that the doctor buries his mis
takes, but the newspaper man can't
hide his." Did it ever occur to
you, how few mistakes creep into
the newspapers. 'Tn yesterday's
issue of The Daily Intelligencer,
there were nearly 200 separate arti
cles and items. Is there a merchant
in Anderson who can <ro on day af
ter day, wrapping np 200 s?parait?
articles without making some mis
takes?
Newspaper workers are a proud
race of peuple. They love their
\ ork. They are jealous of its good
repute. And whenever you hear a
sore head or a failure, or a chea,,
job hunter, knocking newspapers,
don't believe what he says. He
might be the biggest and meanest
liar in creation. The best way is
to read the newspaper and see for
yourself what lt is. Thc man who
can't use newspapers for his selli>li
ends abuses them.-Anderson In
telligencer.
Heart Disease Almost
Fatal to Yourtg Girl
"My daughter, when thirteen years
old, waa stricken with heart trouble.
Sho was so bad wo had to place her

so she could sr-t
her breath. Ono
doctor said, 'Poor
child. sho 'a likely
to fail dead any
time.' A frkmd
told rac Dr. Miles'
Heart Remedy had
cured lier father,
so I tried rt, and
she began to im
prove. She took
a great many bot
tles, but she la
ypnred to me to
day, a fat. rosy
chocked girl. No one can Imagine the
confidence I have in I>r. Miles' Heart
Remedy." A. R. CANON. Worth, Mo.
Thc unbounded confidence Mr.
Canon has in Dr. Miles' ll curt Rem
edy is shaftH by. thousands of
others who know its value from
experience. Many heart disorders
yield to treatment, if thc treatment
is right. If you are bothered with
short breath, fainting spells, swell
ing of feet or ankles, pains about
the heart and shoulder blades, pal
pitation, weak and ^hungry spells,
you should begin usi:i?{ Dr. Milos'
