J. W. Crawford, salesman at Tho

backache and trouble with the kid

years and being constantly on my feet
was very hard on my back causing a
continuous dull aching pain across my
loins. At night I could not rest my
back, no matter what position I as
sumed. The secretions from the kid
neys wero unnatural and irregu'ar and
this with the backache was playing me
oat fust. I tried ail kinds of medicine,
took doctor's proscriptions and wore

But that isn't all? Devoo lasts

The annual reunion of Co. f. S. c.
Volunteers was celebrated at Vfarbor*
oiigh's Mill, Wednesday, August, PJth
ilist. On account of the unfavorable
weather forecast the altendance was
not much as wou'd otherwise have been.
Still a nice attendance was present, es
timated betwoon 400 and BOO, and one
<>f the best disposed crowds to be seen
on BUch occasions.
'The program was carried out as fol
lows: Prayer by J. O. Temploton; Poll
Call: Song, When the Poll is Called Up
Vonder; Recitation by Miss Irene Oil
lard: Song, Dixie: Recitation by Miss
Irene Snood: Song. Bonnie Blue Ping.
Mr. J. P. Dillard rond tho roll and
out of 112 dat marched bravely away
for the defense of their country more
than 42 years ago only (ifteou answered.
More than these are alive, perhaps 22
in all. The war record is that 142 coin
posed the company, 2.'1 of whom were
killed on the field, 17 won; discharged,
11 discharged and died of wounds, and
the remaining tit surrendered.
The officers in command were Capt.
Owens, killed at Malvern Hill: Capt.
Dunlap, killed at Shepards Town:
('apt. .lames M. McCiU'loy, who lost an
arm at the second battle of the Wilder
ness and who now lives at l/iurens.
The next in rank was Capt. James P.
Sloan, who was appointed but never re
ceived tho command, being wounded at
Gettysburg and remained a prisoner
the rest of the war at Johnson's Island.
After the regular program was con
cluded Judge Allan Barksdale was
called on for a few remarks. Judge
Barksdale emphasized the lamentable
fact of the need of more southern liter
ature, especially of southern history,
writ ten and taught by southern men.
He gave an instance occurring in his
own state of a Nor thorn teacher sarcas
tically refusing to countenance impor
tant historical events in the South dur
ing tlio civil struggle. His plea was
for history written as it was made.
Some reference was made to Korshaw's
Brigade at Cold Harbor, Frazier's
Farm, and the '"Camp Kettles" at Mal
vern Hill. Mention was made of the
?'scary" times going over Telegraph
Road, where a run w.isconsidered
better than a bad stand. In a pictures
que way tho Judge described his own ex
perience along this road. He was con
gratulated on the high speed he devel
oped with his heart on tho tip of Iiis
toes, as he passed one soldier whom the
day-light had pierced and another sit
ting on one side of tho road with his
skull on the other, lie told of his los
ing his arm at Chickaniauga. in the hos
pital at Atlanta and also al Columbia
and how he kept his promise to bo
home when transportation was refused.
Frequent mention was made of his
kinsman, the venerable Dr. J. A.
Barksdalo, who occupied a seat near
the speaker. Mr. Barksdalo eulogized
the southern women for their courage
and heroism dining tho lonely times
they were by themselves: no suffering
and anxiety to be compared with them,
not that of poverty and personal dis
tress but the care and consideration for
the loved away from home. lie closed
with a fervent prayer that all may
meet "When the roll is called up yon
der" and hoped for a continuance of
southern patriot ism.
JUDGE THOMPSON'S SPEECH.
Hon. O. G. Thompson followed with
a short speech giving some well chosen
illustrations, showing at what disadvan
tages the southern army were under.
Capt. J. P. Dillard in his jovial humor
did everything to amuse and entertain
A long .table had been well loaded
from the well tilled baskets and barbe
cue hash was dispensed to the full sat
isfaction of all present.
The afternoon was passed in a very
pleasant manner, the soldiers recount
ing heroic deeds while tlio younger
ones tried to prove to tho beautiful
typical southern girls that they were
equally its patriotic.
In all the day was well enjoyed and
all are anticipating another just such
reunion at Langston's Church, on Aug
ust, Ii?, 1001 where.it wasunamlous that
the next one should bo hold.

White Stone Lithia Water!
Is the lightest water on the market. We rcali/.i that this is claiming a great
doal, and we couhl not nll'ord to make this assertion unless wo knew thai we
con hi prove It bo bo true. But it does 1 ol take ?n export to tsst the foftness of
a Mineral Water. When earh mating a mineral water, if it is a hard wat?r the
gases will not bo absorbed in the wat r, and when tho bottle is opened, the gas
es esoapo, and the water is left flat and hard, while If it is a soft water, like
White Stone Lithia, it will rc'aln its gases for hours after being unstopped.
