.Several reports have reached us
of the good work" that Supervisor
Edmunds ia doing in claying the
heavy sand beds on the old Piauk

Death of a Confederate Veteran.
The death of Mr. John Galloway
last Wednesday afternoon marks
the passing of another gallant vet
eran. Mr. Galloway was in his
72nd year. While he has been
gradually yielding to the weight of
increasing years for some time, yet
until quite recently his health was
good. Mr. Galloway was a good
citizen, a man of sterling qualities
and always managed his business
and farming operations with more
than usual success. He was a mem
ber of Rocky Creek church but the
interment took place in the ceme
tery adjoining Philippi church,
where some of his relatives were
buried. The funeral was conducted
by Rev. H. B. White, the' pastor of
Rocky Creek church. The Edgefield
friends of Mr. Galloway will miss
his visits to our town.
Mr. Galloway is survived by his
wife and four daughters. Mrs. J.
C. Harris who resided in our town
several years was his daughter.

no effort was made to keep account

than a year ago. Miss Garrick said

she has at last found a means of
restoring her health, which, all too
soon for her years, has threatened

a long time with stomach troubles,
and other kindred ailments, which
reduced her health to a ?. state which
made her almost wretched all the.

will prove its superior worth in her
case, as it has in hundreds of other
cases in South Carolina. Her state

After I had undergone an opera

"Of course, I did not die, but I

I took many kinds of medicines,
but to no avail. I would have head
aches frequently, and they were so
painful I thought surely I would go

While I had headache, I - would be
forced to stay in bed. I would
suffer with a full, heavy feeling

I was forced to eat only a light
diet. MY condition has been steadily

WAR UPON PAIN!
Pain is a visitor to every home
and usually it comes quite unex
pectedly. But you are prepared for
every emergency if you keep a
small bottle of Sloan's Liniment
handy. It is the greatest pain kill
er ever discovered. Simply laid
on the skin-no rubbing required
it drives tho pain away. It is really
wonderful. Melvin H. Soister,
Berkeley Cal. writes: "Last Satur
day, after tramping around the Pan
ama Exposition with wet feet, I
came home with my neck so stiff
that I couldn't turn. I applied
Sloan's Liniment freely and went to
bed. To my surprise, next morn
ing the stiffness had almost disap
peared, four hours after the second
application I was as good as new."
