Detective Holland, who had some
thing to do with the case in which
Daniel Murphy, of OJrangeburg, was
convicted of the mnurder of Treasui er
~ Copes, is in jail in Edgetield on [nc
charge of suborning witnesses. Sone
time a :o an engine was wrecia d in
Edgetielt County, on the C. C. G. I C.
it. I. Holland undertook to In doVU
the wreckers. Finally h1: :va-le a case
against a Ian :vnimc:i Rafas Weailhir.
The Augu-ta Herald says thi upon
1 thorough ilvestiga'ion the solicitor
came ti) the cor:c!usion that tho whole
t ca-e was imanufac;tured!, at,4l turned
Weather loose, and arrcsted two of
Holland's witnesses on I he charge of
periary, and Holland hintcelf on t
charge mentioned above. According
to the Herald, the solicitor will push
I the cases vigorously. It will be re
membered that the principal witiness
agailSt M-Urphy-th1C alleged murderer
- of Treasurer Copes-was a woman of
. ill repute. It was suggested sometime
ago that the woman knew nothing
about tLe murder wlidtever, and was
paid to testify as she did. The fact
that Holland has been caught up with
in a similar garne, goes to show that
whether Murphy is the right man or
not, he has no doubt been convicted by
false testimony.- lorkkille En yirr.

most remedies for children are composed of opium or morphine ?
Do You Know that opium and morphino are stupefying narcotic poisons ?
Do You Know that in most countries druggists are not permitted to sell narcotics
without labeling them poisons ?
Do You Know that you should not permit any medicine to be given your child
unless you or your physician know of what It is composed ?
Do You Know that Castoria is a purely vegetable preparation, and that a list of
its Ingredients Is published with every bottle ?
Do You Know that Ca.toria Is the prescription of the famnous Dr. Samuel Pitcher.
That It has been in use for nearly thirty years, and that more Castoria is now sold than

Do You Know that the Patent Office Department of the United States, and of
other countries, have issued exclusive right to Dr. Pitcher and his assigns to use the word
"Castoria" and its formula, and that to Imitate them is a state prison offene ?
Do You Know that one of the reasons for granting this government protection Was
because castoria had been proven to be absolutely harmless?
Do You Know that 35 average doses of Castoria are furnished for 35
cents, or one cent a dose ?
Do You Know that when possessed of this perfect preparation, your children may
