untold damage to property, and
many lives have been lost in the

places have lost all hope of making

PLENTY OP TIME IN WHICH TO PLANT.
'arming operations have been
delayed far beyond the expecta
tidus of the people. Rains have
followed close upon rains leaving
little time for preparation. But
everybody seems to be in a state of
readiness, and while the weather
permits, every day will be made to
count. There is yet no caus9 to be
alarmed, for a few days of fair
weather will bring the needed ap
plication of labor and the fields that
hive not yet been touched will be
transformed and made ready for the
seed. Of course this delay makes
disadvantages, but these will be
overcome in due season and orops
will yet be planted in time to
yield bounteous harvest., if
worked inl season. The experiences,
of this sprinlg only tend to emphas j

possible preparations for crops dur a

THE COUNTY DEBT.
The question of county finances
is a source of serious concern to the
people of our neighboring county,
Oconee, as well as with us on this
side of the Keowee.
The responsibility and latitude
represented in the trust reposed in
he County Commissionois of any
,ounty make those officers among
ne most important, if not the most
mportant, public servants, locc'lly
peaking, in the public Service.
['hey are, of all men, the guardians
and disbursers of public funds. ''ho

mgalnst the county rests with them
mnd to them must be credited pub.

he mangement of a county's fi
:ncial afl'iirs above reproach.
rho conditions obtaining in Pick.
as county are such that, at pres
mt, the bulk of the work done fir
he county is done on credit, and
:ertificates of this indebtedness are
ssued to satisfy, in a n+easure, thel
lemand for payment. This sys.
em of payment is the continued
esult of an expedient resorted to
or the purpose of procuring work
or the county at a time when even
i high levy was insulicient to mc'
murrent expenses and pay off a

t appears that the increase in val
1ations has not kept pace with the
nereased demands for work neces
wary through the very prosperity
>f the county. The result of this
is now evident in the present out
standing debt of the county, and
this is growing with every year.
Debt in this form, is a most se
rious hampering. It places the
:ounty at a disadvantage in every
time contract made, and all this
must come as tax money sooner or

indebtedness and let the people

funds now raised, properly ex
pended, are not sufficient to carry
on the improvements without in.

Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, dis
courages and lessens ambition; beauty, vigor
e-r_., and cheerfulness soon
:' disappear when the kid
neys are out of order
.- or diseased.
.0 Kidney trouble has
become so prevalent
that it is not uncommon
for a child to be born
- afflicted with weak kid
neys. If the child urin
th. ates too often, if the
urine scalds the flesh or if, when the child
reaches an age when it should be able to
control the passage, it is yet afflicted with
bed-wetting, depend upon it. the cause of
the difficulty is kidney trouble, and the first
step should be towards the treatment of
these important organs. This unpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of the
kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as
most people suppose.
Women as well as man are made mis
erable with kidney and bladder trouble,
and both need the same great remedy.
