tharities of Laurens county for Wes- \
ley Hill, the negro who is believed to |
'have murdered W. R. Bryson, a prom- j
inent farmer of Mountville, last Sat- i
urday afternoon. Special deputies
hare been called into service for the
sete-rch. They trailed the negro
through Laurens, Newberry and Lexington
counties and into Richland j
Sheriff Buford sent two deputies to
Prosperity, but the crowd had crossed j
the Saluda river on trail of the negro. |
Wesley Hill's two brothers, Joe and
Charlie Hill, and a negro woman, Orie
Williams, have been arrested.
Joe and Charlie Hill were taken to
Columbia Tuesday night from Lexing-1

Laurens county. They are charged j

She is in jail at Laurens.
The posse of about 20 men in search

of its members came to Columbia
Tuesday morning, while the others j
continued the search in Lexington!
county in the neighborhood of Lees- j
ville. The party in Columbia searched
several houses where Wesley Hill was
believed to be hiding. Deputy Sheriff
Reid spent Tuesday watching thei
'bridge across Broad river where it
was thought Wesley Hill might come
from Lexington county.
Soon after Mr. Bryson was shot Joe

of the shooting, was arrested near
Mountville. The negro is said to have
confessed that he helped Wesley Hill;
to escape and promised to take the j
posse to the house where he was hid-!
ing. Monday afternoon Joe Hill was;
carried on the Columbia, Newberry anl
Laurens train to Kilgore Hill, about
three miles north of Prosperity. From;
there he took the posse to the huose of |

It is understood that the posse then
divided, part remaining in Lexington .
and the rest going to Columbia. Al- ,
though Deputy Sheriff Reid took Joe j
and Charlie to Laurens Wednesday j
morning, the other members of the
party remained in Columbia.
The late W. R. Bryson, who was
shot Saturday at his farm near Mountville,
was about 35 years old. He had j
a "wide family connection in Laurens
county. He left a wife and two children.
According to the report from Laurens,
Mr. Bryson had ordered the negro,
Wesley Hill, to stay off his place.
Saturday he saw the negro on his land
and followed him down the road. A|
short while after four shots were
heard. A negro boy found Mr. Bryson's
body lying in the road. Suspicion
at once fell on Wesley Hill, and
the search for him was begun Saturday

grossly that the customs inspectors

IMPROVE FARM LIFE.

William Jennings Bryan, who fre- j
quentlv lays aside politics for the discussion
of other questions of equally!
absorbing interest, delivered before
the conservation congress, recently
held in Kansas City, a. most interesting
address on "Conservation and the
Improvement of Farm Life," which
makes an appeal that all who take to
heart their country's future prosperity
and that of their posterity will do well
to heed. There o,re those who cherish
Mr. Bryants views on political topics
and those who do not. The questions
of the conservation of our natural resources
and the development of farm
life are essentially so devoid of political
bearing, that all must be deeply
impressed with his hearty endorsement
of the movements which are to

For obvious reasons the address can
not be given here, but suffice it to say
that Mr. Bryan looks for the protection
of our water sheds, the conservative
cutting of timber, reforestation of
denuded timber land and the extensive
use of irrigation to reclaim arid
areas; and emphasizes the dire misfortune
that is sure to come if the

Can any argument be more con vine-!
ing than this? Ca? any of our tillers
of the soil, "who contribute so largely
to the welfare of the country, still!
doubt, after reading this, that the rural
telephone is their rock and their salva- j
jtion? We venture to state that nothing
in recnt years has proved so beneficial
to the farmer as the telephone
which has been placed at his command.
Only one use has been mentioned
above, though it is one "which probably
appeals most strongly to the farmer's
better self or better-half.
The rural telephone, however, has
other uses which make it. invaluable
as a time saver and an annihilator of
space. The vigorous campaign which
has been carried on for some time
past by the Western Electric company,
which holds the unique position
of being the largest manufacturer of
telephone apparatus in the world, has j
been the means of convincing a great
host of farmers that their homes will
be better safeguarded, their social life:
made more agreeable, their facilities j
fnr hanrilins: hnsiness increased, and.!
in general, life made easier and more j
attractive as a result of the advent of!
the rural telephone.
The farm is a great, vital factor in
our economic problems and must not
become devitalized, else the end will
not be far to seek. The telephone will
help in a very great measure to prevent
such industrial decay and, more
than that, will open up new fields of
CALOMEL GIVES ONLY
mrimAn i mr nm irr
So Powerful it Shocks Liver and
Leaves it Weaker Than Before?
Dodson's Liver-Tone a Perfect
Nearly everybody who has ever tried
calomel for constipation or a sluggish
liver has found fiat it gives only a
temporary relief. For calomel is such
a, powerful drug that it shocks and
weak-ens the liver and makes it less
ible afterward to do its duty than in
the first place.
This is onp of thf> reason?; whv W. G.
Mayes' drug store would rather sell
Dodson's Liver-Tone to you than calomel.
We know that Dodson's LiverTone
is a pure vegetable liver tonic
that will cure constipation quickly and
gently without any danger of bad after-effects.
We guarantee it to do
this with a guarantee that is simple
and fair. If you buy a bottle of Dodson's
Liver-Tone for yourself or your
children, and do not find that it is a
perfect substitute for calomel, then
come back to the store and get your
money. If you -don't get value for your
money out of this tonic, it's your right j
to expect your money back, and we j
will gladly give it to you.
