ROYAL DAKINQ POWDER CO., NEW YORK,
IRBY LOTS TO BE
Ad Uncommonly Flno Opportunity Of
fered to Investors?A Good Time
to Obtain a Home.
The sale of the Irby lots on South
Harper, Academy, Chestnut and Man
ning streets and Irby and '"odd avenues
will take place at 11 A. M. tomorrow
in front of the court house.
This is the handsomest piece of prop
erty ever offered in lots at public sale
in Laurens. Last week an Advertis
er man rode over this property in com
pany with a real estate man. A care
ful examination of the property will
surprise oven a Laurens man, generally
familiar with the property, as to its
value. While some of the lots are bet
ter than others, The Advertiser
risks the assertion that a purchaser
cannot f tiI, even though ho buy with
out seeing tho property, to obtain a
good lot. Of the 65 lots, there are two
that are not paralellograms. They lie
at the north western corner, on Acad
emy and Ohotnutstreo's. There is not
a single lot that is not roady for the
placing of a house- requiring no expen
diture for filling gullies. There is not
a gully on the place. Most of tho
lots have beautiful trees.
The only interest that The Adver
tiser has in this sale is that it would
like to see the town show an apprecia
tion of Laurens properties. The build
ing up and developement of the city
would help the whole community. The
success of this aale will lead to others
similar In future and eaoh and every
one will mean the improvement <>f Lau
Be sure therefore to inform yourself
as to these properies and be on hand
promptly tomorrow at tho sale.
It should be s'ated that the new
streets, Irby Avenue and South, North
and East Manning streets, have already
These lots should be specially at
tractive to peopla who now live in the
country and who have some idea of
coming to town in future. Persons
d??iring the school advantages of tho
town can obtain homes at this time at
lower cost than ever again perhaps.
The school law is that persons who
are taxpayers in this district may send
their children to the city schools with
out paying tult'on, even if they no not
live in the district.
Thus one may by owning a lot send
half a dozen children to the Laurens
schools free without moving to town.
The influence of climatic conditions
in the cure of consumption is very mueh
overdrawn. The poor patient, and the
rich patient, too, oan do much better at

tion, and a regular use of German Sy

ing is made certain by German Syrup,
so is a good night's rtst and the ab
sence of that weakening cough ard de

A Careful Pcrsual Will
Prove Its Value to Ev
ery Laurens Reader.
The average inn t is a doubter, and
there is little wonder that this is
so. Misrepresentations make people
skeptics. Now-a-days the public ask
for better evidence than the testimony
of strangers. Here is proof which
should convince every Laurens reader.
J. W. Crawford, salesman at the Hub,
redding at 102 Public Square, says: "I
can recommend Doan's Kidney Pills
very highly. I used them for backache
and trouble with tho kidneys, My back
ached for a couple of years and being
constantly on my feet was very hard
on my back causing a continuous dull
aching across my loins. At night I
oould not rest my back, no matter what
position I Assumed. The secretion*
from the kidneys were unnatural and
irregular at<* this with the backache
was playing me out fast. I tried a>l
kinds of mediolno, took doctor's pre
scriptions and wore plasters but it was
time, labor and money wasted. Read
ing an advertisement about Doan's Kid
ney Pills I wont to the Palmetto Drug
Oo.'h store And got a box. Tboy wout
right to the spot and vanished the
backache and restored the kidneys to
their normal condition. My rtst at
night is now undisturbed."

j Germaine, the wizard, occupies an
altogether unique and envlablo posi

his oxtensivo travels, his performances
have called forth tho unqualified en
dorsement of press and public every
where, and have won for him the justly
earned title of Amorlca's Cleverest
Maglciun. Ills usually pleasing and
magnetic personality, his consummate
mastery of his art, combined with the
suave manner In which he perpetrates
his clever and fascinating deceptions
upon bis audienco, make his perform
ance the mo3t unique of its kind and
him a favorite with young and old,
with average as well as highly critical

transference, which completely ballle
the acutest mind.
His l'opertolre being oxtensive, he
has always a few surprises up his
sleeve. Among others, tho famous Im
postors will bo reproduced. Many of
the favorite feats along tho line of mys

his fertile imagination, ever creating
now and novel denouements. Most
fasoinat'ng are his duplications of tho
mysteri?s of Indian Fakir?, which he
imbues with all tho weird phautasy of
the far east.
Germaine will bo accompanied by his

Is the lightest water on the market. We realize that this is claiming a great
deal, and we could not ait'ord to make this assertion unless wo knew that we
could prove it to bo true. But it does not take an expert to test the toftness of
u Mineral Water. Whon carbonating a mineral water, if it is a hard water the
gases will not bo absorbed in tho wat-u*, and when the bottlo is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water is left Hat and hard, while if it is a soft water, like
White Stono Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after being unstopped.
Read what some prominent persons you know nave to say of tho merits of
the Whlto Stone Lithia Water:
Chester, S. C, April 23, 1903.
J. T. Harris, Esq.,
White Stono Spring, S. C.
Dear Sir?I do unhesitatingly state
that tho efficacy of Whlto Stono Lithia
Water, not from Its splendid analytical
analysis, but from my own personal ob
servation, is a very valuable agent in
eliminating the impurities of the blood
through its marked diuretic effects,
and in so doing restores the secretory
and excretory organs of tho body to
tlieir normal physiological state. So in
this proves i's properties to he of great
value in assisting digestion, assimila
tion and increasing the appetite. There
fore wo can recognize it as a mineral
water of powerful tonic properties and
should no highly recommended in stom
ach and liver disorders, blood disturb
ances, rheumatism, gout, diabetes,
Brisrht's disease and in ?11 inactive
conditions of tho kidneys and convales
I feel myself, that I am justly duo an
acknowledgement of tho happy effects
I derived from its use.
