Kidney Pills are like true friends, the
longer you know them the better they
are appreciated. I can add nothing to
the statement I first made in 1806 af
ter I procured the remedy at the Ven
tura Drug Co., and took a course of
the treatment, which cured me. I was
absolutely free from all backache for
nearly three years, then I noticed a
slight ache, as the result of a cold in
my back. A box of Doan Kidney Pills
disposed of it. I have recommended
this remedy to many, and havo never

THE PROPOSED WORK.
Main and Sonth Harper
Ward 2 Kicker Claims thnt Other Parts
of the Cit y Fail to Got Their
Editor Advkrtiser, Put:?Please
put mo in the Kicker's Column, for I
am protesting against a recent action
of tho Town Council.
I understand that Council by a ma
jority voto recently, decided that the
first act of the new administration
should bo to expend somo six or eight
thousand dollars on Main Street.
And pray what does Main Street so
urgently need? It has already been
graded and macadamized for nearly
two miles and would be considered by
the people who travol it bringing to
market their cotton and other produce
a good street, for it has a rock bottom
to it. But the favored residents say
that parts of it are tn? -rough (rocky)
for a nice drive; besides, a portion is
covered with mud about shoo deep.
Laurens Street had mud this winter
knee deep, and that almost within a
s one's throw of tho public square.
Whilo it may not bo used as much as
Main, it is au important feedor of the
town, being used by one of tho beBt
sections of the county.
Then look at North Harper! Impor
tant as Main and pays more taxes, re
presenting as it does the cotton mills.
This street has been graded and ready
for the macadam. During tho past
winter it was almost without a bottom.
In fact it was so bad right here in town
that we could scarcely get to the ceme
tery to bury our dead.
Coitpled with above is another ^rand
conception ".?; <y;,^ ?;i?t5nguishe.d Coun
cil provided it bad^mVney to burn;
tvijd provrfled further, if It were not de
stined to beoQmo a-**?erltabhi death
tr?p; It is to poiistruct a magnifleont
usling some olght or ten
thousand dollars, across tho ravino on
South Harper, nt Whitten's shop, to
extend from hill to hill on a level with
And pray what does South Harper
want with a bridge? It too has been
graded and macadamized south of the
branoh, and tho short hill noxt to
town does not work up into mud. See
ing these things are true, why does
Council, as now constituted, persist in
this extravagance and discrimination?
I venturo to say that as individuals they
would not consider It good business in
their private affairs; then why should
it be in public affairs? They cannot
think it fair or just to discriminate
against certain sections or classes of
olt'zens; and it certainly cannot be
that that they aro inimical (o any par
So then to come down to tho gist of
the matter: What spirit is actuating
this Counc'.l, to cause it to act so un
reasonably, aoy way? |ts it one of
equity and fair play? A desire to speuJ^,
the people's money to the best advan
tages of all? Or docs it smack too much
of selfishness, or of a spirit of retalia
tion or resentment for something a pre
vious Council had done?
Yes, we do feel oggrleved, because
shamefully neglected so long. We are
law-abid'ng citizens and should have
r ghts. To be ignored invites opposi
tion. Lot Council build up the two re
maining thoroughfares half as good as
Main now is and there will be no more
kicking. Out of the mud fl>st, then
Tho two projects above mentioned

What will Council do? Why, borrow
money of course. But perhaps one Coun
cil has no legal right to bind a succeed
ing Council,and a too flagrant violation
may be contestel. We pload for fair
