the lovllest character. A link is broken

her home which never can be filled.
4th: We extend our deepest sympa

May not be all that Is meant by dyspepsia
now, bat it will be It neglected.
The uneasiness after eating, fits of nerv
ous headache, sourness of the stomach, and
disagreeable belching may not be very bad
now, bot they will be if the stomach Is
suffered to grow weaker.
Dyspepsia Is such a miserable disease
that the tendency to It should be given
early attention. This Is completely over

The Law Department of th?
South Carolina College.
In addition to the regular lectures by
the professors of law of the South Car

are pleased to be able to announce for
the < ? mini; pension a very attractive
aeries of lectures to bo contributed by
.?nint? of the lending members of the
Mr ii< ? I and llnr of .South Carolina.
Amol one who hnve consented to
dellve. ..or or more lectures to the law
classes of the College are: Hon. Charles
It. Hlmonton. IJ. H. Circuit Judge; Hon.

The trustees and faculty feel that in
aecurhiR the assistance of these dis
tinguished Judges and lawyers they
have accomplished something that will
prove of the greatest benefit to thone
tuklng the law course in the South
Carolina College. The number of those
enrolled In the law department during
the last two years hus been the largest
In the history of the college, nnd the
hope In entertained that the prospect
of these additional lectures may still
further Increase the growing number
of law students.
The great value of the training af
fixed by schools of law has been too
thoroughly demonstrated to render
necessary any arguments In their sup
port. The day of preparation for tha
bar by solitary study in a lawyer'*
office has practically passed. Kveryone
familiar With the working of a law
school must bays bf?t) Impressed with
the Increased Interest aiid *?al thaf re
sult from the mere association of young
men who have come together for the
common purpose of studying law. The
dally discussions of questions of law,
not only with the professors, but also
with each othhr, beget an enthusiasm
for the law which possibly, |n pofqe \n?
stances, could never have been acquired
The advantage of attending a profes
sional school In the State in which a

with the ie? isions and statute law of

at such a school add very materially to
his future uscfulncu ft$ a c|tiii?n. *^bn
career of lawyers as a eins? Is more apt
to be of a public nature than that of
those engaged In any other profession
or buslness.|| Not only are all of the
Judges of the State drawn from the bar,
but the occupants of the legislative and
executive otrliee are al?q drawn very
largely from trie saivt? source. As so
many of the m?mbera of the legal pro
fession are naturally destined to public
careers, it Is of no iikIp Importance
that the young men who have decided
to become lawyers should come Into
close touch with other young men of
their own State who hare choren the

A law school, however, should be
patronized not alone by those Intending
to practice law. There is hardly a eall
Ing In life for which one would not be
better prepnred by having taken a
course In law. Almost everyone who
has made an earnest study of the law
will agree with Rurkc that It Is a
"aelenee which does more to quicken

all other kind* of humat) learning put

Court of the State, of the State Circuit

State, and to witness the practical ad

White Stone Lithia Water.
Is the lightest water on the market. We realize that thU i9 claiming a great
deal, and we could not aft'ord to make this assertion unless we knew that we
could prove it to be true. But it does not take an export to test tho softness of
a Mineral Water. Whon carbonating a mineral water, if it is a hard wtitor the
gases will not bo absorbed in the water, and when tho bottle is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water Is left flat nnd hard, while if It in a soft wator, like
White Stone Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after being unstopped.

the White Stone Lithia Water:

Water. I can heartily recommend it

J. O. C. Fleming.
After a servico of one season at
White Stone Lithia Springs, ai resi
dent physician I do not hesitate to say
that the effect of the wator upon thoso
who drink it for any length of time,
has been perfectly marvelous, invari
ably an increase both in flesh and ap
petite was perceptibio in one week,
proving it to be a mineral wator of
undoubted powerful tonic property. Its
peculiar adaptability to diseases origi
nating from disorders of the kidnoy,
bladder and liver, such as Dropsy,
Bright's diseases, Diabetes and uric acid
calculi, and all forms of Dyspepsia,
Rheumatism and Gout is to be ex
pected from the splendid analysis. It
has been noted frequently that visi
tors before coming here had to follow
every meal with some form of correc
tive, or confine themselves entirely to
prcuigested foods; soon discard thoae
entirely, being delighted to find that
tho water alone?nature's OMn remedy
sufficed. Of the many who drink this
water this soason for ten days consecu
tively,not one but experienced decided
benefit and a perceptib'.e gain in welgt,
varying from two to five pounds.
