Dragging Road of Great Benefit.
Mr. Robert Parks, the capable
town marshall, used a split-log drag
on some of the streets last week
very effectively. It accomplished
about as much where the earth was
loose as the road machine and was
lighter, considerably lighter on the
mules. While the spirit of co-ope
ration is in the air let as many far
mers as can afford to give the time
drag several miles of public roads.
The dragging that was given the
road between Edgefield and Mr. D.
B. HolJingsworth's, and also the
road leading to Antioch has been of
A Very Pleasant Occasion.
Wednesday Ur. Frank Jones
gave a private barbecue out on his
plantation north of Edgefield and
honored about (50 of his friends
with invitations. He proved to be
a most gracious host and his moth
er, Mrs. Hettie Jones, who was
present md added much to the oc
casion was likewise a charming hos
tess. The occasion was ideal, being
suggestive of a large family re
union. Everybod3* knew everybody
else and the hours under the pines,
poplars and sweetgums were spent
most pleasantly. The table was fill
ed to overflowing with barbecued
meats, hash, tomatoes and other
things that accompany such a feast.
Near by was a bold spring of ice
cold water flowing from the foot of
a large poplar tree. Iced lemonade
was provided bountifully and even
body drank dozens of glasses
Dr. Jones, knowing how gifted
Norman Voungblood, the veteran
chef, is in serving a barbecue din
ner, engaged bira to prepare the
splendid repast, and it was season
ed and served in a manner that was
fit for a kaiser or king. After everj
body had partaken freely of the
dinner there were many baskets full
left, so Dr. Jones turned the table
over to about 15 or 'JO of his farra
hands and they enjoyed the feast
to a degree that words can uot ex
press. Soon after his friends had
left the table and were seated in
groups under the trees, in buggies
and automobiles, Dr. Jones passed
around Havana cigars that soon had
the air laden with a fragrance or
aroma that was pleasant to inhale.
AU who were honored with invi
tations are greatly indebted to Dr.
Jones and his mother for their
thoughtful kindness and Jhope that
after another short year passes it
will be their pleasure to gather
aronnn Poplar spring for another
great feast and several hours of de
lightful social intercourse.
Sunday at Stevens Creek
Following our custom of many
years, that of attending at least the
first day of the annual protracted
meeting at Stevens Creek church,
we spent Sunday among: those yooci
people, enjoying the day immensely.
Recently the members of the church
made some improvements in the
interior arrangement ol' the church.
Two rooms have been constructed
in the north end and the rostrum
projected considerably forward, an
extension tu tho platform being
made on the east side to provide for
the organ and choir. A modern
baptistry has been constructed im
mediately in the rear of the speak
er's desk, the two rooms being used
for dressing rooms when the ordi
nance of baptism is administered.
This addition or improvement was
wisely planned and the workman
ship is the best. So large is the
building that suiHcient room has
been left to seat thc large congrega
tions that gather on special occa

expressed thc hope that some of the

At tho dinner hour everybody was
invited to gather around the long
table where the good old Stevens
Creek hospitality was dispensed.
A dinner which was almost limit
less in quantity and variety was
served in a manner that has won
for the good people of Stevens
Creek the reputation of being most
charr ing hosts and hostesses.
MRS. PILGRIM WOULD
HAVE TERRIBLE AT
LIKE HORRIBLE DREAM.
She Declares First Bottle of
Taniac Completely Re
lieved Her Had Been
In Bad Health 10
After suffering three long years
without "a minute's relief" from
stomach trouble, Mrs. Rena Pil
grim, of 15 Harris street, Anderson,
S. C., found complete relief in the
lirst bottle of Taulac she took, ac
cording to a statement she gave the
Taniac representative. Her state
M suffered from stomach trouble,
which caused continual pain for
three years. I did not have a min
ute's relief. I could not eat any
thing, and I was so weak I could
not do my housework. I had been
in bad health for ten (l?) years, and
my ailments had been very bad du
ring the past five (?) years.
"My nerves were all torn to
pieces, too. Nearly every day for
about nine months, and less fre
quently during the two previous
years, 1 would have terrible at
tacks, nerves Lad something to clo
with them, I suppose. These at
tacks would continue an hour or
longer and I would become uncon
scious. Members of my family sev
eral times thought 1 was dying, and
I thought so myself. When these
attacks wore off it seemed as if I
had a horrible dream, and I would
be too weak to sit up or talk, even,
for two or three hours after the
spells ended. Before I took Taniac
I was so weak I could not do my
my housework and I would have to
go to bed three or four times and
rest a short while during the time I
was cooking each meal. I did not
dare eat meat, and everything I ate
would cause me terrible pains.
I had tried so many medicines
and had spent so much money with
out getting relief that I had lost
faith in medicine almost and had
About lost hope of ever getting well
again. I was persuaded to take
Taniac, though, and when I began
taking it I could not walk across
"Well, I am a well and happy
woman now, and it is all due to
Taniac. I do ray cooking, wash
clothes occasionally, and go to town
and anywhere I eire to, for my
strength has been returned. The
very first bottle of Taniac ended
those terrible attacks and stopped
the pain in my stomach. You can
imagine how grateful I felt when
I was freed of those pains after
three long years of steady suffer
"Since I began taking Taniac I
have taken two trips to Georgia to
visit relatives. I never get tired
now and I lind a lot of pleas

years of age, but I am going around
a lot now to.make up for the time
I lost during the past (icu years.
I can eat anything now and a

tirely different woman now, so great
has been the change since mj
health was improved. I feel fine
when I had t? lushed the second bot
tle of Taniac, and I have not taken
any in over a month. I bought six
bottles at one time, but I ?rave one
to a friend, and other members of
ray family took thc rest. I took
just two (2) bottles.
"I sure can recommend Taniac,
and I have persuaded a lot of my
friends to take it. If you had seen

you would say it hrs worked a real
miracle for me. That is just the
size of it; Taniac worked a miracle

Mr. Mouzon Dorn Died at Hos
pital in Columbia.
Saturday afternoon at two o'clock
Mr Mouzon Dorn of the McKendree
community passed away at one of
the hospitals in Columbia, where he
underwent an operation several days
ago. His body was brought home
Sunday morning and interred at
McKendree Sunday afternoon about
two o'clock, his pastor, Rev. M. M.
Brabham, and Rev. H. B. White,
pastor of Stevens Creek church,
officiating at the funeral.
The death of Mr. Dorn deprives
the McKendree community of one
of its best citizens, leaving vacant a
place that can not be easily filled.
He was a man of sterling qualities.
He was thoroughly dependable. As
husband, as father, as friend, as
neighbor and as a citizen of the
community he was without a peer.
Evervbody had a kind word to say
about Mouzon Dorn. He always
attended strictly to his own affairs
and never meddled with the busi
ness of other people. He was an
upright, God-fearing man whose
life and example in the community
was always helpful and wholesome.
Mr. Dorn is survived by his wife,
two sous, Mr. Thomas and Mr.
Mouzon Dorn, and three daughters,
Mrs. W. H. Timmerman,
Mrs. Walter Manly and Mrs.
F. P. Walker. The Advertiser ex
