Citadel Again Honored.
The superintendent of the Cita
del has just received a telegram
from the adjutant general of the
army stating that as a result of the
in.spection of the Citadel in April it
was again placed on the list of dis
tinguished colleges by the war de
partment. It also asked for the
name of the cadet of the graduating
class designated for the commission
in the army. Col. Bond designated
Cadet Francis Wilkerson Sheppard,
captain of B company of Edgetield.
The appointment is well deserved.
Both Col. Bond, the superintendent
of the Citadel, and Col. Garey, the
array officer who is commandant,
are much gratified over the telegram
This is the ninth consecutive time
the Citadel has been ou the list, and
it is well understood that this lime
it stands close to the top, if not at
that envied position. Col. Garey
said that he was especially gratified,
because the Citadel was now com

ties, such as Harvard and Prince
ton, who have military departments,
and who are striving to get OM the
list, which is limited io ten institu

Letter From Mt. Zion.
(Written for last week.)
On the 4th Sunday in May Rev.
P. B. Lanham preached an excep
tionally good sermon to his congre
gation at Mt Zion church. A larger
crowd than usual was present, b iv
ing ct me together for the purpose
of considering the advisability of
moving the church. The question
was not discussed that day however,
a motion being passed to defer thu
matter till the 4th Sunday in June
A committee was appointed on
this day too, to make arrangements
as to time and place for having a
Sunday school picnic. This will bfi
held when most convenient for thc |
farmers and announcement of tin
date will be made later.
While returning from church thal
day Mrs. W. J. Gaines received a
telegram announcing the sadden
death of her father. Rev. W. A.
Gaines, at his home in Seneca, on
Saturday night, the 27th of May.
She and Mr. Gaines look the 4:4U
Western Carolina train at Augusta
that afternoon and went to the home
of her brother, Mr. J. M. Gaines,
in Greenwood that night. The inter
ment was to have been on Monday
afternoon, but some of the relatives
from distant states could not reach
there in time, so it took place at 5
o'clock on Tuesday afternoon at
Edgewood cemetery, Greenwood.
The funeral services were conduct
ed bi Rev. T. M. Galphin, pastor
of the Baptist church at Seneca,
who accompanied the family to
Greenwood. This solemn occasion
brought together a large concourse
of relatives from this and other
states, and while all were oppressed
by sadness at having to give up the
wise and beloved old patriarch of
the familv, yet there was joy at see
ing face to face near and dear rela
tives who had not been seen in
twenty-five to thirty years. Many
beautiful floral tributes were sent
from distant friends. These com
pletely covered the fresh earth of
the ijrave, so that beneath a canopy
of Howers, this grand old soldier of
the cross was left to sleep from his
long life of arduous toil.

grandfather's funeral and returned

Charleston Woman Would Be
come Unconscious For Half
fANLAC HELPED HER.
After havinp been unable to work
for four months on account, of ill
health, during which period she
suffered from chills, fever, indiges
tion and that most repugnant and
discomforting of all complaints of
belching, which would continue for
an hour at a time, Mrs. L. Boylet,
well known housewife of No. 2
Blake street, Charleston, has added
her name to the thousands who have
found relief in the use of Tanlac.
"I suffered from indigestion and
chills and fever," states Mrs. Boy
let. "My indigestion caused me
terrible pains in ray stomach and
chest, and I would sometimes belch
for an hour at a time. I suffered
something terrible at times. It seem

aches and was extremely nervous,
jumping at the slightest noise. Af

my limbs. In a few minutes they

would continue for hours. Chills
would set in and I would goto bed.
In a short while I wou'd become
unconscious, remaining so for near
ly half a day. I had these spells
about twice a year and have had
them for about four years. Some
time my feet and ankles would
swell to double normal size and
sometimes a large blister wou'd
form on my knees. This would
first turn red and burn ju^t exactly
like a red-hot iron beim* pressed to
me. In a day or two it would turn
into a real blister. When this blis
ter was opened and the water let
out it would turn into a very bad
sore. I tell you, I suffered terri
bly. I had not been to work for
four months because of my poor
health. Sometimes I would turn
black in the face, and have been
pronounced dead while in the grip
of these spells. These two condi
tions were gradually killing me. I
do not believe that I would have
lived very lung if I had not got re
lief when I did.

things that Tan lac was doing, and
