Struck by Lightning.
.Some folks say lightning will not
strike a building that is covered
with metal but lhere are times when
such buildings are victims of tba't
subtle energy or force. The county
jail was struck Thursday afternoon
during the terriffic storm, and
this building is covered with metal
shingles. It did not however strike
the roof but the bolt struck just be
neath the eave of the building. In
stead of concentrating upon one
part of the building the lightning
seemed to spread through it. There
was one prisoner in jail but he was
uninjured. The family of the jail
er were on the first floor and were
considerably shocked but not seri
ously injured. When the building
was first struck smoke came from
the chimneys and windows, having
the appearance of being on fire.

A Delightful Party.
Saturday evening Mrs. Edward
Johnson entertained royally for her
guests, Miss Johnson and Miss
Mrs. Johnson's home was a very
central place for the party, being
near town. The guests were greeted
at the door by Mrs. Charlie Griffin.
The decorations were pink, the
lights being softened by the decora
tions. Several talented young la
dies played on the piano during the
Rook was suggested, and tables
and decks of rook cards were found
all ready prepared. Lively and
exciting games entertained the com
pany, as few things besides rook
can do. It was great fun whether
the players were "set" or not. The
term peculiar to rook, that I just
used, is a secret fear to all rook
players when they bid very high,
for fear they will not make their
After rook had been enjoyed the
guests were served with refreshing
punch, by Miss Norma Shannon
house and the Misses Holston.
Cards for progressive conversa
tion had been already pinned on the
guests, as souvenirs, and soon the
dates were made and the bell was
tapped for the first conversation.
These lasted five minutes and then
there were further dates to be filled.
This gave everybody a chance to
meet and talk to everybody else.
During the fourteenth on?-* the
guests were served with delightful
pink cream and cake, thus carrying
out the color scheme, Miss Brook

Afraid to Leave
OFTEN HAD TO REFUSE
BETTER PAYING POSI
Helped by Tanlac.
"It would be a hard matter to
estimate the good Tau lac has done
me," said W. Day Barrett, 2ol3
Burroughs Street, one of the best
known raen in Savannah. Mr. Bar
rett has been a city salesman in the
grocery line for sixteen years, and
his enthusiasm over Tanlac is no
surprise to the many friends who
knew ot his previous condition of
health and now realize what it has
done for him.
'Tve been a little better than a
nervous wreck for three years," he
continued, and have heen treated by
no less than fifteen doctors right
bere in Savannah. I was forced to
tum down better paying jobs, trav
eling, because I was afraid to get
away from home in this condition,
and at times I was actually afraid to
go out on the street I was so weak
4T suffered with headaches and
neuralgia and ray stomach was in
bad condition all the time and it
seemed like I couldn't get anything
that would-set rae in order or enable
me to digest ray fcod. I couldn't
eat anything that wouldn't sour on
my stomach and give me pain or
make me miserable. I was thin and
had very little strength. In fact,
the least little exertion would ex
haust me and I was hardly equal to
anything. I would have pains in
my back and joints continually, and
would be so nervous and exhausted
at night I couldn't sleep at all. I
would often have to to take stimu
lants to enable me keep on going.
"One of the doctors who treated
rae suggjsted that I try Tanlac and
see what it would do in ray case,
and besides that, a close personal
friend begged me to take it. So I
started in on it about a month ago,
and I couldn't tell you in a week
how glad I am that I got it, for it's
the very thing. I haven't taken but
two bottles yet, but I've actually
gained several pounds in weight and
it's simply picking me up aud get
ting rae over every one of my
troubles just as fast as it can. As I
said before, there is no estimating
the good it has done me. It is a
great medicine beyond all doubt
and I am going to keep on taking
it until there is no chance of these
troubles coming back on rae."
Tanlac, the master medicine, is
sold exclusively by Penn & Hol

Co., Johnston; G. W. Wise, Tren
