Qur wife is gone. Gone to visit our
mother-in-law. Gone back to the old
borne and the real cream. Back to the
old oaken bucket and mud pies of mem
ory. We are not saying this to make
other men envious whose wives are not
gone. But it, is sort of a whistle to
keep up courage. For a long time the
opportunity to hang out all night and
make a monkey of ourselves has looked
good. Now, with no restraint on our
conduct, no tearful wife waiting to
throw her hooks into our hair, no'one to
lie to, nobody to pacify with artful in
ventions, no person to care a whoop
whether we go to the bughouse or not,
now that the very hour and moment is
pregnant with witchery and our horo
scope is psychologically correct for' a
period of debauchery, we get to sleep at
8.30 and mope off to bed like a mollusk.

A GOOD PRINTER
lr. Lewis iurtnett left Pickens Sun
day for Ilopewell. Va., where he goes
to join his wife and two sons and they
will make their home there. Mir. -urt
nett has been a printer on The Sentinel
for the past four years and we greatly
regret to give him up. He is not only a
good printer, but the steadiest one we
ever saw, and a gentlemia with it. lie
is also endowed with that rare but
happy faculty of attending to his own
atfairs and letting other people attend
to theirs. The best wishes of The Sen
tinel are with Mr. 3urtnett at all times
and wherever he may be.

the ceremony the happy couil e hur

awaiting them. Only a few friends

M. E. Chuich's
Doctors Had Almost Given His
. Daughter Up to Die -No
One Thought She
WAS A LIVING SKELETON 4
Through Use of Acid Iron Min- 4
eral Daughter Was Restored *
to Health, Says Rev. 4
C. B. Newton. O
The following tribute to a medicine
from Reverend Doctor 0. B. Newton, 4
Pastor M. E. Church, speaks volumes 4
for the medicinal value of natural
iron as it is now concentrated, tested,
snd bottled by the Ferrodine Chemi- 4
ral .Corp. under the nam- of Acid
Iron Mineral. Ile said: I
"My little girl suffered from gastri
Lis, acute lBright's disease, and level
op'd symptoms of pellagra. For sev
eral months she was an invalid and 4
reduced almost to a skeleton. No one
who saw her thought she could possi
bly live. The best medical skill avail- 4
able was applied but with no results.
She only grew worse until physiciaslis
told us not to b.e surprised at her 4
death at any time. Our attention was
first Lalled to a kidney and ,bladder
pill and we gave her part of one fifty- 4
(eet bottle, after which we gave her 4
.\e id Iron Mineral regularly. She is
now well and has all her faculties well 4
developed again and you would not
guess she had ever had a sick day in
her life by her appearance. We have 4
recomnhIUel(ded A-I-M to several 4
friends and do most heartily recom--(
mend it to anyone suffering from any O
trouble which it claims to relieve." 4
Respectfully, (signed) O. 13. Newton,
Pastor M. E. Church, South, Chatham 4
Unlike many prepared remedies
containing iron, Acid Iron Mineral
does not. act as a -laxative, but the 4
necessity of keeping the liver and
bowels working normally being so ap
parent, the Ferrodine Chemical Corp. 4
puts up an A-I-M Liver Pill in 25c
boxes which are recommended as E
part of the treatment when using -
Acid iron Mineral. These little pills
are the best we can .recommend and
are very inexpensive.
Note:-Acid Iron Mineral is just
a bhhly concentrated form of natural
medicinal iron, non-alcoholic and very
ectonomical. Whole families should
take it. It never injui-es the teeth,
vues from two to six times as far and
is many times more powerful and ef
licient than other inferior prepara
tions. A half teaspoonful in a tumbler
of water after meals makes a delight
ful, invigol'ating and most unusual
tonic, stomach, kidney, and bladder
regulator. Cleansing the blood, en
riching and purifying it, watch how
quickly the appetite increases and
the user gains weight. Most dlruggists
sell Acid Iron Mineral in both a large
and small size bottle. Get a bottle to
