the carefully prepared program was
well presented. The popular and
efficient superintendent, Mr. W. B.
Cogburn, presided and announced
the program. The Sunday school
attendance numbered 239 and there
were scores of others who attended
to witness the beautiful exercises.
The school is graded according
to the most modern system or meth
od, and last Sunday was annual pro
motion day. A large number of pu
pils were passed up to a higher
class or grade. The school now has
22 classes and is steadily growing.
A special collection, amounting
to about $40.00, was taken for
A beautiful feature of the morn
ing was the presentation of a prize
which was awarded by Mrs. J. B.
Keunerly. At the beginning of the
year Mrs. Kennerly offered a prize
to the scholar in her class who
made the best record for attendance
during the year. Mrs. Kennedy's
class record showed that Master
Harry Paul had not missed a single
Sunday in the ?year, so he was
awarded the prize, a beautifully
bound copy of the Bible. This was
presented in an appropriate manner
by Prof. T. J. Lyon.

Good Democratic Record.
The tariff is only a part of the Un
derwood revenue law. In reducing
taxes on consumption, of which the
consumer pays far more than the gov
ernment receives, and substituting a
tax on incomes, which falls on the
well-to-do in proportion to their ability
to contribute to the support of the gov
ernment, the Democratic party has
been true to its promises, faithful to
Its traditions and guided by the best
opinion of expert economists. The law
provided not only a sufficient revenue
but a surplus that covered the year's
costs of the Panama canal, until the

Mr. Wilson has been president for

Backache is Discouraging.
But Not so Bad if You Know
How to Reach the Cause.
Nothing more discouraging than
a constant backache. Lame when
you awaken, pains pierce v?u when
you bend or lift. It's bard to work
or to rest. Backache often indicates
bad kidneys. Edgefield people rec
ommend Dean's kidney pills. Read
Mrs. E. P. Jackson, Cedar Row,
Edgefield, sayB: "I suffered greatly
from a weak and lame back which
became so bad thac I could hardly
get around. My sides and hips also
got sore and lame and loss of sleep
made me weak and exhausted.
D?an's kidney pills rid me of the
attack." (Statement given April 12,
1911.) Over three years later, Mrs.
Jackson said: "My back or kidneys
seldom trouble me now, but when
they do, Doan's kidney pills always
give me quick relief."

In college-at the University of

Mrs. McDonald dictates the office

does the typewiiting.
I was in young McDonald's of

There were several clients to call
during that time. The telephone
kept a-ringing. There were mes

law officers. There was the hum of
business activity and business meth
ods and plenty of business-to me
it seemed the busiest law office I
ever fell into.
Veterans in the law tell me Wal

the law is deep; that be is as pains

SAYS HE THINKS TANLAC IS
"FINEST REMEDY IN THE
WORLD" TO PURIFY
Because of the hardship he was
forced to endure during the four
years he was a soldier for the United
States array during the Civil War,
Mr. B. F. Dixon, of Converse, S.
C., R. F. D. 1, a suburb of Spar
tanburg, savs, in a statement given
August 7, that his health was un
dermined and that he never really
enjoyed good heaith after the war
Mr. Dixon was wounded six times
by bis then Southern enemies, sev
eral times seriously. But his health
now is better than it has been in a
long time, he says, ind he gives
Tanlac, 'the master medicine,' credit
for bringing about the great change
in his condition.
Mr. Dixon took just two bottles,
he says, and he gained eleven
pounds. His statement follows:
"I suffered particularly from
stomach trouble. I had almost com
pletely lost ray appetite and I was
just worn down. I am SO years of
age, and I had lost so much strength
that I staggered when I walked.
Also I had lost considerable

weight and I was very nervous.
My condition finally became so bad
and my nerves were sc disturbed
that I could not sleep well and I
would lie for hours in bed before I
could get to sleep.
"Rheumatism also caused me con
siderable pain, and, besides these
pains. I suffered considerably with
crampy pains. My nerves were so
bad and my strength so little that I
could hardly write my name.
"I had [suffered with these
troubles for years. I don't know
just how long. Finally, I heard
about Tanlac aud began to read the
advertisements, and later I decided
to take it.
MI bought the first bottle and it
did not seem to help me much. The
reason of that, I know, was because
I was in such bad shape. But I
bad faith in it and bought the
second bottle, and that was the
bottle which gave me wonderful re
"The relief the two bottles of
Tanlac gave me was as follows: I
gained ll pounds in weight, and
that certainly is a lot for man of
80 years to gain. Tanlac relieved
my sleeplessness and I got to where
1 could sleep almost like a dead
person. It gave me a great appe
tite and I was soon eating three
square meals a day. It broke up
my stomach trouble and I gained a
great deal of strength. That short
ness of breath left rae, and ray
nerves were quieted and strength
ened. I do not suffer with rheuma
tism now either.
"I think Tanlac is the finest rem
edy in the world to renovate any
one's system and to build it up.
Tanlac is good-there can't be any
better. I think. I am certainly
glad to recommend Tanlac, for it is
an extraordinarily good medicine,
and I know from my experience
that it is good for all il is claimed
to be. I have tried it and I know
what it will do. If I ever need
medicine again, I certainly will take
