mony at the parsonage.
Mr. Parsons is one of the best

Death of a Little Girl.
The grim reaper, Deathi, has
again invaded our neighborhood
and plucked a beautiful bud
from its parent stem, and borne
it away to the realms above to
bloom in paradise.
May E velyn, youngest daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. John ngle
ton, of Peters Cr'eek section, left
her loved ones behind the rmorn
ing of September 6th at the
tender age of three years, four
months: and three days. She
was a lovely child, the pride of
fond parents, and aged grand
parents, a great pet of her
brother, and sisters. A great
number of friends and Te1atives
extend their deepest sympathies
to the bereaved family in their
sad affliction.
Asleep, in Jesus, oh, how
To be for such a slumber meet
With Holy confidence to sing,
That death hath lost its venom
-R. L. Hames is in the city
today and is well pleased with
the future outlook of our town.
Mir. Hames, who is an excellent
meat cutter, ought to move here
and join, forces with R. H.
Crane in giving us a good mark
et. We believe "'Bob" can be
induced to move here and we
can assure him of a warm wel
come and a hearty support of
our people in any line of busi
ness he should engage in,-Lib
erty Gazette. A nice bouquet
for Mir. Hames and deserved.
We don't believe "Bob" can be
induced to leave Pickens. He
knows Liberty is a good town,
but thinks Pickens better.

complaints among people living In the
Southeastern States, can be effectively re
lieved in the shortest possible time by
R. L. T.-Richardson's Laxative Tonie.

five years by Dr. Richardson,. of Andersorr,
E. C., in his daily practice as a family
physician, and has behind it thousands of
testimonials from many prominent South.
Carolinians and citizens of other neighbor
ing states. R. L. T. is a wonderful cor
rector of liver troubles and the greatest
tonic on the market today. You can abso
2utely rely on it in any case of chills and
fever or malarial poison, constipation or
If any member of your family need a
tonic that strengthens and builds, go to
your druggist today and get a fifty-cent or
