Mrs \j B. Hartley, of Batesburg,
who passed through this city tonight)
en route to her home, having gotten

Miss Lena Biease is a member of a
well-known family of Batesburg. and
a cousin of Governor Biease. She mar- j
ried L. B. Hartley, some years her se- j
nior, on the 19th of April, 1903, in j'
Batesburg, she says. The husband ,
lived at Batesburg, and his father and
several brothers reside there now. The
young mother to-night, in speaking of (
her married life, said that it was not
a happy one.
Secured a Divorce.
' The two children are named Julian,
aged nine and one-half years, and Lester,
aged eight years. For several years
after they married Mr. and Mrs. Hartley

Hartley went to August? to work, and
about three years ago Hartley took the
two boys and went to Alabama, where,
she says, he subsequently secured a.
divorce, Mrs. Hartley resuming her

about two years ago. She says when
she returned to Btesburg her former
husband had taken the cnildren away. .
.The mother says she began a long
and patient search to locate her two
chUd^en, following clue after clue.
Finallv after two years she says she ,
located her former husband in the lit- ,
tie town of Samson, one hundred miles j
south of Montgomery, on the Louis- :
ville and .\asnvnie Kanroaa. I,
The mother next laid plans, she said,,
for regaining her children. She in
tended invoking the aid of the law,
and about six weeks ago went to j
Birmingham,, and from there to Montgomerg,
Ala. Getting in command of
c- ? ,
ine situation she claims she found j.
that the vouneer of toe boys was sick, i,
and this with other information led
her to decide to take .he other boy, .
Julian, and come back to South Carolina.
On Friday of last week she says .
she moved to Elba thirty-five miles',
from Samson, where the boys were, i

Monday morning, in a racing car, she
declares she sped across country to .
Samson. As the children were gather- .
ins: at the school the mother says she
called Julian to the car in which she
pulled iiim in. opened the throttle and
, headed for Elba, across country. The
boy was at first bewildered, says the
mother, bin soon recognized her and
was wild wivh joy. saying he wanted
to come back to South Carolina.
With her boy in her lap the run was
made to Elba in thirty minutes. From
Monday until Wednesday the mother
cave shp hid in the eountrv with her

From there she came hrough Atlanta,;

Professor Budlong's case of eczema

the state of Connecticut. His letter is
another interesting1 demonstration of
what is being accomplished by the
famous specific D. D. ?>., Prescription.
"It may be of interest to you to knowthat
your life-giving preparation, D.
D. D. Prescription has been of incalculable
value to me. I was covered

Greenville was the running over

and without malice aforethought,
wandered upon the tracks
in search of preferred Southern Railway
After leaving Columbia, the train
arrived at the junction at Alston,
without mishap, but shortly after
leaving that place, the ticket collec
tor and a negro on the rear platform
had a dispute about some matter
not fully set forth, which resulted
in some profanity from the
dark-skinned one, and a firm warning
from the collector. The negro,
however, it is said, did not follow
the terms of the warning, and the
result was that he was forcibly

train proceeded on its way the negro
is said to have fired three times at
the coach, but the bullets all went
After proceeding some distance
further, t'he passengers were informed
that a large pile of lumber
and other material, was on fire just
beside the track. The train was
stepped for an investigation, and the
officios in charge finally decided that
the fire could be passed safely with
proper care. All the passengers
were asked to move to the other
side of the coaches, to avoid any
chance of danger from broken window
glasses, heat, etc., and the
train moved on.
Having thus nassed Scvlla and

were beginning to feel easy, wnen a
series of loud "boots'' from the engine
set all to wandering again.
Immediately after, there was a
heavy jolt and upon investigation it
was found that a large cow had been
run down and killed.

Overcome by Simple Remedy.
Hurried and careless habits of eating,
irregular meals and foods that
do not harmonize, tend to weaken
the digestive organs and result in
different forms of stomach trouble.
If you are one of the unfortunates
who have drifted into this condition,
eat simple foods only, slowly, regularly
and take Vinol, our delicious
cod liver and iron tonic.
Mrs. H. J. Smith, Thomasville, Ga.,
says: "I suffered from a stomach
trouble, was tired, worn out and ner
vous. A friend advised me to take
Vinol. My stomach trouble soon disappeared
and now I eat heartily and
have a perfect digestion and I wish
every tired, weak woman could have
Vinol, for I never spent any money
in my life that did me so much good."
The recovery of Mrs. Smith was
due to the combined action of the
medicinal elements of the cods' livers
?aided by the blood making and
strength creating properties of tonic
iron, which are contained in Vinol.
| We will return the purchase money
I every time Vinol fails to benefit.
