TIlE ROAD PROBLEM.
The Couiity Board of Comnmis
sioners of Pickens county have
had a heavy burdon to carry thro'
the present term, The begining
of this term found the roads in a
condition, in some places, well nigh
impassable. The county fund
available for road improvement
was altogether inadequate to do
the work alone. The legislature
at the 1002 session made some~
amendments that helped temnpora,
ily, but even the law now of force
is not suffluient through which to
do the work that ought to be done
on the pubio roads of Pickens
county. There is too great an in.
COnsistency between the value of
the number of the number of days

Dr. Miles' Nervine is a specific for nervous

"I feel it is my duty to let you know that
rour medicines have cured my little girl of
tine, of spasrms. She commenced having them
it the age of three. Our family doctor said
he would outgrow them but she did not.
Xe took her to another physician who said
ter trouble was cpileptic fits in a mild form.
le did her no good either. She w s so
tervous she could hardly walk. As I had
dready used I)r. Milez' Nervine and found
t a good remedy fot myself I commenced
iiving it to my child. I gave her in all ten
ottles of the Nervine and one of the Illood
'urifier. That was over two years ago and
lie ha. not had an att::ck Since we comi
nenced the treatment. She is no longer
.oudle with n.rvousness an,l we consider

a as tin-ane for thrcc monthls from the effects
of I.aG;rippe. Sti bottles of i. Miles' Ncr

for sick headache with tmI.d re'ults. We all
