COL. lEUUUSOJi COMPLIMENTED.
As Judge at Neu berry He is Among
His Friends.
Ti?e Newberry Observer, a paper
which is always judicious iu its com
pliments, says:
' Col. Jno. W. Ferguson, who 1? pre
siding here over the equity court this

several years in this county, and many
a man and woman is wiser and better
for the instruction and training re
ceived at his handg. Col. Ferguson
married a Newberry lady, Miss Mary
Dorroh, a daughter of Dr. Win. M.
Don*oh?the father and daughter are
both dead. Col. Ferguson began the
{>raotlce of law at Laurens soon af;er
eaving Newberry and has been emi
nently successful, ?and is regarded as
one of the safest and soundest practi
tioners at the bar in South Carolina."
Notice To Subscribers.
For some reason or other subscribers
to The Advertiser have been slower
in paying their subscriptions this fall
than ever before in tho life of tho pa
per. Meanwhile the cost of producing
the paper is no less than heretofore
and many expenses are heavier. The
prospect is discouraging. The Ad
vertiser therefore hopes that tho
many whose subscriptions are due will
be prompt to send their money or bring
it. Nothing would give greater pleas
ure than to furnish a free paper but it
is absolutely impossible.
Those who wish to have the Semi
Weekly News and Courier and The
Advertiskr?threo papers a weet:?
can got them through The Adver
tiser for $l.fiO for both papers. tf.
A STA RTLING TICST.

Electric Bitters excellent for stomach
and llvor troubles so I prescribed
them. The patient gained from tho

months." Electric Bitters are posit
