Ulysses Campbell, a Greenville Negro,

Governor Hoyward has commuted
the death sentence of Ulysses Camp
boll, colored, who was condemned to
death in Greenville for killing a ne
gres?, to life imprisonment.
Campbell is the son of an old negro
named Joo Campbell of tho Hunting
ton neighborhood, this county. He bore
a good reputation but is said to have
been a man of weak mind. In a drunken
row he killed the woman, hardly know
ing what he was doing.
Mr. J. P. Saxon of Huntington in
terested himself in the caee, more on
account of tho family of the man who
aro good negroes, and succeeded in ob
taining the services of Hon. Lewis
Dorroh of Greenville for him. Then Mr,
Saxon went to seo the Governor with
Mr. Dorroh and tho granting of tho
commutation was the result.
It was clearly shown that the case
was one in.whlch tho Governor could
well afford to show mercy without com
promising in the least tho ends of jus
The family of the negro are of course
very grateful as they should be, to Mr.
Saxon and Mr. Dorroh for help. In
fact tho man would havo probably been
hung but for tho active efforts of Mr.

to serious urinary dlsordere. Here is
J, H. O'Dell, of Factory Hill, mill
hand, says: "I havo been suffering
from backacho for a long whilo. At
times I could not work on account of
the aching across the small of ray back
and the dull pain gave me no rest day
or night. I could not stand straight
and if I sat for a bit and attempted to
arise I had to catch hold of something
to pull myself up. The secretions from
the kidneys were very red, full of sedi
ment and got like a jelly after they
stood for a while. I could not retain
them any length of time and bad to
rite often at night. I tried several
highly recommended remedies and
used liniments, but nothing did me any
good until 1 got a box of Doan's Kidney
Pills at the Palmetto Drug Co. and
used them according to dlreotions.
They gave me relief almostatonce and
since using them the kldnoy secretions
have gotten clear and natural and I do
not have to got up at nights as I used
to, while the backache has all left me."
