To The People of Laurens County:
It has been said that I ought to with
draw from the Senatorial race as Col.
Irby has withdrawn from the race for
United States Senator. In my an
nouncement I propose to stand by Irby
because he was the exponent of straight
Democracy. He has withdrawn and I
still stand on the same platform I did in
the May Convention, for straight De
mocracy, and a united people. I also
propose to abide the decision of the peo
ple at the Democratic primary. Conse
quently I am in the race until the close
of the polls on the fourth Tuesday in
August, and hope to be in it on the first
Tuesday in November.
Alex j. Smith.
Senator Irby, as ho withdraws from
the Senatorial race, carries with him
to private life a large share of publio
respect. He is stronger in defeat th?!\
he nas over been in victory. It is due
to the fact that it was not in him to de
mean and humblo himself constantly
before a bullying boss that his retire
ment is forced. Tho man in Irby has
como out. Some of, us have opposed
him, sharply, acrimoniously. Now wo
are ready to lot bygones be bygones.
We believe that In this withdrawal he
has acted with dignity. An exhibition
of spite at his old friends might have
been pleasing to us of the opposition
but it would have only provoked a sneor
at Irby's expense. Senator Irby has
risen higher In public life than he can
hope to rise again. The chances aro a
hundred to one against his returning
at any time to tho senate and a smaller
offiop vould have nothing to tempt blm.
The chance is before him to win the
regard of his own peOpu "Q a private
citizen. Ho has made a good start.
We wish him well.?Charleston Post.
The death ot that gallant comrade and
veteran, General I. G. McKissick leaves
the position of Brig. Gen. 2d Brigade
S. O. Division U. C. V. vacant. Gen. Mc
Kissick was unaminiously chosen at the
recent Charleston re-union. It is pro
bable that the place must soon be filled
by election. The name of Comrade B.
H. Teague, of Alken, was suggested at
tho Charleston re-union as a Comrade
enthusiastically interested in the cause,
but he gallantly declined to enter the
race against the gallant incumbent. I
now beg to offer the name of Comrade
B. II. Teague for the distinguished
place. He served as a private in Co.
"B" Hampton Legion and surrendered
as a mere boy at Appomatox.

Duncan's Creek Church.
This venerable church, organ
ized in 1766 will be 180 years old
this summer. For nearly three
years Rev, W. 8. Bean has been
preaching to tho congregation
which Is scattered far away from
the old stone church. It is a beau
tiful situation, on a hillside, sur
rounded by other ranges of lofty
hills, while the creek flows through
the valley between them. It Is ex
pected that a meeting will be held
there this summer, in August, pro
bably, to commemorate the attain
ment of the venerable age of 180
years, and to reVive the historic
memories of the old church. We
would be glad to get from any one
sketches of any of the families once
associated with the church, the
earliest settlers, the places where
their descendants have scattered,
and any information which would
throw light on the early days of
the church. The Presbytery which
ordained Rev. John Newton, the
first settled pastor in Georgia, met
in this church. Borne of the first
elders were native Irishmen who
had received ordination in Ireland
and were elected elders at Dun
can's Greek. Any contemporaneous
history, old letters or records of any
kind which might be used in this
connection would be gladly ob
tained, and the editor would use
them carefully and return thom jo
the owners. The elders think* that
the first Records of (be Church
have been lost, as the only records
now In their possession go back in
the beginning of this century. The
Clinton church is a daughter ol
Duncan's Greek, which is stated in
Dr. Howe's History of the Synod to
be the first church organized west
of Broad River. Let all interested
help us to make this a memorable
occasion, and rovive an interest In
the memory of the fathers whose
piety founded this sanctuary lu
what was then a wllderness.-South

A better man than Mr. Ellerbe
may yet be announced, but with

se, Wis. ?Gentlemen: For forty years I
used tobacco in all its forms. For twenty
five years of that time I was a great suf
ferer from general debility and heart
disease. For fifteen years I tried to quit,
but couldn't. I took various remidies,
among others "No-To-Bac," "The Indian
Tobacco Antidote" "Double Chloride of
Gold," etc., etc.. but none of them did
me the least bit of good. Finally, how
ever, I purchased a box of your "Baco
Curo" and it has entirely cured me of
the habit in all its forms, and I have in
crcaaOd thirty pounds in weight and am
relieved from all the numerous aches
and pains of body and mind. I could
write a quire of paper upon my changed
feelings and condition.
Yours respectfully. P. H. Marbury.
