Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After Ten
Tears of Suffering.
"I wish to say a few words in praise
of Chamberlain's Colio, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy," says Mrs. Mattio
B?rge, of MartinsviHe, Va. "I suf
fered from chronic diarrhoea for ten
years and during that time tried va
rious medicines without obtaining any
pormanent relief. List summer one of
my children was taken with cholera
morbuF, aud I procured a bottle of ibis
remedy. Only two doses were required
to give her entire relief. I then de
oided to try the medicine myself, and
did not use all of one bottle before I
was well and I have never since been
troubled with that complaint. One can
not say too much in favor of that won
derful ratdlcine." This remedy Is for
sale by Laurens Drug Co.

Senator Bon Tillraan spoke in Bis

J. D. Leonard, a prominent Spartan
burg county man, died last week.
Mr?. L?e Bogao was killed near
Cowpenp, Spartanburg county, Sunday
by a runaway mule.
Monday Willio McMillin, a negro
bell boy at the Spartan Inn, Spartan
burg, fell 50 feet out of a window and
Eliza Gray, a negross, tritd to com
mit suicido in tho Anderson jail last
week. It is said to be very unpleasant
to bo in jail at this season of tho year,
in Anderson or elsewhere.
Last week near the site of tho Paco
let ware-house, washed away in the
flood, a bit of cotton was seen sticking
through tho sand. It was found to bo
a part of a bale. Othor balos wero
found beneath and in all $60,000 worth

completely buried and lost.
COIRS WERE FOUND.
Three Old Spanish Dollars Discovered
A negro plowing ou Mr. W. W.
Jones' place near here last week plowed
up three old Spanish dollars. One was
dated 1779 and the others were noarly
as old. They were perfectly pre
serve:}, The field where they wore
found had been recently c'carod and
had not beou cultivated for many years.
Emphasixes Its Superiority.
The best test of the merit of an arti
clo is the way it sells. Bransford Mills,
at Owensboro, Ky, where "Clifton"
flour is made, run night and day, and
yet they cannot supply tho demand for
"Clifton." In this city, as elsewhoiv,
it is the standard by which other flours
are guaged, and tho statement that "it
is just as good as "Clifton,"only makes
its superiority the more pronouncod.
