dressed in a Monte Carlo, holdingr the

There are times when it becomes
necessarv to perform a sad duty, and in
the decision of Dr. A. J. Eriggs of Sum
merton to change his residence to Dar-1
lington. we are moved to express our
sincere sympathy with the good reople
of that section. There is no gaiusaying
it, Doctor Briggs' re~noval is a decided
loss to that community, both in a pro- t
fessional and a social way. He does
not leave Summerton for any lack of
appreciation of his services, because his
practice was extensive, and among the
best paying people in the county, a
practice which he built on his merits
as a physician. Doctor Briggs goes to''
Darlington where he may personally u
supervise some valuable property in
terests. We know the people of that
community feel keenly his moving away
from them. for in him they not only had
a physician whose skill merited confi
dence. whose heart is in his profession,
and whose ministrations were as benev
olent as they were skillful. He was a
household favorite as well as a need.
As a citizen he is progressive, always
ready and willing to aid in the building
up and the betterment of the commu
ity, genial in his contact with men.
intelligent and honorable, a man who
is a community's pride. It is with re
ret that such a man decides to make
Eis home elsewhere. We do, without'
the slightest hesitation, commend Dr.
A. .T. Briggs to the people of Darling
ton as a physician of high character
and skill, and a man worthy of highest
T em'ency of the Times. t
The tendency of medical science is
toward preventive measures. The
best thought of the world is being given
to the subject. It is easier and better
to prevent than to cure. It has been
fully demonstrated that pheumonia.
one' of the most dangerous diseases
that medical men have to contend with,
can be prevented by the use of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy. Pneumonia
always result from a cold or from an
attack of influenza (grip), and it has
been observed that this remedy coun
teracts and tendency of these diseases i
toward pneumonia. This has been<
fully proven in many thousands of cases
in wvhich this remedy has been used
during the great prevalence of colds
and grip in recent years, and can be
relied upon with implicit conlidence.1
Pneumonia often results from a slight<
cold when no danger is apprehended:
until it is suddenly discovered that<
there is fever and dilliculty in breath
ing and pains in the chest, then it i
announced that the patient has pneu
monia. Be on the safe side and take
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as soon
as the cold is contracted. It always
cures. For sale by The R. B. Lorvea
