In Memory of Little Ruth.
On the morning of March 1(5, 180G, lit

W. H. Hudgens, fell asloep to awake in
the arms of Jesue.
Baby Ruth was a source of great hap

Though our little blossom was plucked
in babyhood, and though the mortal
form of our loved ono lies silent in the
tomb, yet we have tho sweet assurance
that sho is with the Redeemed in Heav

Could wo remove tho misty voil and
see our little darling happy In Imman
uel's love, and hear her sing Ilia praises,
would we wish her hack in this sinful
world to sutler as was her earthly lot.
Oh! what a blessed tio to bind US
closer to Heaven, where baby stands at
the Celestial gato beckoning with her
tiny hands to father and mother to come
up there where all is lovo, joy and happi
God grant, when it is thy will thnt wo

across tho River to be forovor at rest,
where parting comes no more.
"Tender Shepherd, thou hast stilled
Now thy little lamb'b brief weeping.
Ah ! how peaceful, pale and mild
In its narrow bod 'tis sleeping,
And no sigh of anguish soro
Heaves that littlo bosom more."
"In this world of care and pain,
Lord ! thou wonldst no longer leave it;
To the sunny, heavenly plain
Thou dost now with joy recoive it;
Clothed in robes of spotless white,
Now it dwells with theo in light."

Though thou tako what most we love."

What the Word Means?How They are
Made?Newberry Is well Pleased
Waterworks in Laurens.
An Artesian Well is ono sunk
into the earth until the internal
pressure is sufficient to force the
water out in a continuous stream
like a fountain. The name is de
rived from the town of Artois in
France where the first well was
bored. Trading with us is liko
digging a well?you dont have to
do it but once. After that you will
understand why it is that hundreds
of people give ns the endorsement
of their steady patronage. There
are many reasons for this fact, tho
principal one is that our prices aro
right. We dont claim that we can
save you money oo everything.
Some things have an established
value the world over. Nothing is
more certain than that no ono bouse
can always sell tho best goods at
prices lower than ovory ono else.
But there aro many things on
which wo are unquestionably the
lowest and if you will tako our en
tire line, up one side and down tho
other, averaging our prices, it al
ways boils down to that little net
difference of 5, 10, or perhaps 15
cents on the dollar which you save
from our economical way of doing
business. A small store but a largo
capacity for serving you acceptably.
In April and May tako Barsapariila.
Wo have all tho best kinds and
none of tho other kinds. We have
it at fifty cents, seventy-five cent-,
ninety cents, or one dollar. Wo
sell our own matte and that made
by others. Tako your choice but
remember "a little* Barsapariila
flavor, a smell of Barsapariila and
a sarsaparilla lablo on the bottle,
dont make tho kind that cures,
though it may make the kind that
sells" (to those who dont know any
better.) Tho ingredients of our
Sarsaparilla are open to tho knowl
edge of all. No secret nostrum
about it. There's lots of health,
energy and appetite bottled up in
it. Come in and talk the matter
over. Glad to see you whftther
you want to buy or only look. Tho
