The Spartanburg Journal says i

on Tuesday morning of last week at

near the Brawley street crossing,

say that never before have tbey been

that Hill's bndy wasro'led under the

Rapid Increase in Values Makes the
Whole South Prosperous
"While it is true that the industrial
development of the South is going
forward with amazing rapidity, it is
nevertheless true that, by virtue i f
tbe extent of the agxlctl ural Inter
;sts of the South, agriculture is yet
the foundation of tbe business of that
section. A change from poverty tr
prosperity of the farmer, and aj
change from land without a selling
value to land in demand at an ad
duce of 50 to 150 percent, over ,tbe
nominal pr cd or one^or two yeart

ation tne'Southern iarmer has gain
ed new courage, new backbone; that
ue has leainea how to market his cot
ton crop; that he has fought to a fin
ish the great battle as to whether the
producer or the speoulatO' is to control
the price of his staple. Having won
this light, the entire nandilng of cot
eon from the field to the factory,
whether the factory be in this couLtrj
or in Europe, has entered upon an sn
tirely new stage in its history. It also
means that land will ba more thor

man, whether he be a farmer, a mer
chans or a manufacturer, Is always
better able to/ work to good advan

Rheumatism is usually worse in Winter because of the cold and damp
ness and other changed conditions of the climate. The occasional twinges
of the disease that are felt during the warmer weather are changed to pierxv
ing pains, the muscles become inflamed and swollen, the nerves get sore and
excited, the bones ache, and Rheumatism, the terror of winter, takes posses
sion of the system. Then the sufferer turns to the liniment bottle, the
woolen clothes, the favorite plaster or some home remedy, in an effort to get
relief. But Rheumatism is not a trouble that can be rubbed away or drawn
out with a plaster; these things relieve the pain and reduce the inflammation,
but do not reach the real cause of the trouble, and at the next exposure an
other attack comes on. Rheumatism is caused by a sour, acid condition of
the blood. The refuse matter and bodily impurities which should be carried
off through the channels of nature have been left in the system because of
indigestion, weak Kidneys, torpid Liverand a general sluggish condition of
the system. These impurities sour and form uric acid, which is absorbed by
the blood and distributed to the different muscles, joints, nerves and bones,
causing the painful symptoms of Rheumatism. S. S. S. goes to the root of
the trouble and cures Rheumatism by cleansing
the blood. It neutralizes the acids and filters
them out of the circulation and sends a stream of
pure, rich blood to all parts of the body. Then,
the pains cease, the inflammation subsides, the
PURELY VEGETABLE. nerves are quieted, every symptom of the disease
passes away, andSthe cure is permanent. S. S. S.
is purely vegetable and does not injure the system as do those medicines con

You should not fail to mark the last resting place of your loved

symbolized by something more lasting than flowers watered by
