To His Excellency, D. C. Hey
ward, Governor of South Carolina:
We have the honor to submit here

done by the State and county dis
pensaries during the fiscal year

aind within a fewv days we will have

insufficient amount to conduct the
business of the dispensary on a cash
In conclusion, we are gratified to
say that the business of the dis
pensary has been conducted with
harmony and success in all its de
partments, and while the volume of
business has increased, we attribute
it to a more rigid enforcement of
the law rather than to an increased
cosumption of liquors.

Mr. John H. Cullom, Editor of the
Garland, Texas, News, has wrillenl a
letter of congratulations to the nianu
facturers of Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy as follows: "Sixteen years ago
when our first child was a baby he was
subject to croupy spells and we would
be very uneasy about him. We began
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
1887, and finding it such a reliable rem
edy for colds and croup, we have never
been without it in the house since that
time. We have five children and have 0
iven it to all of them with good results.
One good feature of this remedy is that
it is not disagreeable to take and our
babies really like it. Another is that
it is not dangerous, and there is no risk
from giving an overdose. I congratu
late you upon the success of your rem
edy." For sale by Smith Drug Co.,
