R. D. SMITH
TAFT COMING TO CHARLESTON
President Will Visit That City on
November 5th and 6th.
News and Courier.
WashiagZton, D. C., August 2.
Presi'ent Taft to-day definitely de
cida)d that he would visit Charleston
this fall. He will arrive there on the
efternoon of November 5th, leaving
,here early on the morning of Novem
ber 6th, for Augusta. He will re
main in the latter city until the 8th
at 7:30 o'clock, going then to Co
lumbia. where he will stay four or
five hours. leaving some time during
4he day for -Wilmington. This was
the statement made at the White
House to-night to the News and Cou
rier correspondent, and is auth-entic.
No special invitation was extended
Mr. Taft to-day, but this morning he
informed Secretary Carpenter that h,
had simply decided that he would
place Charleston in the list of cities
- to be visited by him this fall on -his
Southern trip. It will be seen from
this statement that the President will
have but one night in Charleston,
but it is possible that he may be in
duced to make his stay there longer,
in view of the fact that his itinerary
at this time allows him two full days
in Augusta, and these may be short
eked without seriously interfering
with the plans. Several weeks ago.
whien Mr. Taft first began plans for
his Southern trip, he stated that he
would certainly visit Charleston if he
should be in that part of the country,
and the determination reached by him
torday is tihe fulfillment of his desire.
The President also promised Repre
sentative Aiken some days ago that he
would visit Anderson this fall, and
he will probably go there on one of
the days he is in Augusta, as .the
plans provide for the Columbia trip
direct from Augusta.

Why not a pair of tweezers in the

useful they are to pull out stubborn

will really prove of great assistance.

Soldier Balks Death Plot.
It seemed to J. A. Stone, a civil
war veteran, of Kemp, Texas, tha4 a
plot existed between a desperate lung
trouble and the grave to cause his
death. ''I contracted a stubborn
cold,' he writes, ''that developed a
cough that stuck to me, in spite of all
remedies, for years. My weight ra.n
down to 130 pounds. Then I began to
use Dr. King's New Discovery, which
restored my health completely. I now
weigh 178 pounds.'' For severe Golds,
