LIFE IS ENDED.
One Of the Oldest aud Most Belored
1 Citizens or Laurens, His Death lias
Brought Sorrow to Many Hearts.
Mr. Harvey W. Anderson, one of
Lauren*' oldest and tn >st esteemed cit
izens, died at the family residence on
Main Street, at 1 o'clock Saturday
morning last, la February he had an
attack of pneumonia and was very ill
for two or three weeks. Aided by a
strong vitality, he gradua'ly responded
to the careful medioal treatment and
nursing and was considered on the road
to recovery. A week before his de
mise, however, he suffered a relapse,
complications of the heart and other
organs immediately set in, and he
steadily grow weaker from day to day,
his condition becoming hopeless Frl -
day night. Mrs. Johnston and Miss
Pauline Anderson, daughters of Mr.
Anderson, tho former tho wife of Con*
gressman Joseph T. Johnston, who had
returned to Washington after a long
stay at their father's bedside, were re*
called early In the wc-k, arriving on
Mrs-. Anderson, who was Miss Amelia
Richardson, and six children survive.
The eldest daughter h the wife of Con

Mr. Anderson was b jst known to the

connection with the oflice began long
before the war. He was Cleveland's
appointee under his first administra
tion, and during his second term Mr.
Anderson wai assistant to Postmaster
T. B. Crews. His father, Edward An
derson, was postmaster back in the 10 's
and 50's, but his son, Harvey Ander
son, conducted the affairs of the oflice.
It was in this capacity he was so well
known and unlversal'y esteemed. He
was ever considerate, painstaking, ob
liging and efficient. Mr. Anderson was
also engaged la mercantile pursuits at
various times before and after tho Civil
War. During the war, however, he
was connected with the railway service,
being engaged as conductor on the
Laurens road. His rai'road du?'es
wero discharged with the same courte
ous manner and conscientious care that
always characterized the performance
of every service, public and private.
Everybody was Harvey Anderson's
friend?ho had no enemies. He was
especially fond of children to whom
he was greatly endeared by his kindly
He will be missed in the places where
he had been so long and so faithfully
Identified and all pay tribute to him In

a strong, enthusiastic Mason. In point
of service and efficiency his connection
with Palmetto Lodge, No. 19, A. F. M.
as Its time honored Secretary is per
haps unexcelled, he having been
chosen to this position in 1854 or 1855
and continuously tilled the place with
the exception of one year, covering a
period of nearly fifty years.
The funeral which took place Sunday
afternoon was one of the largest and
most imposing seen in Laurens in a
long time, The Masons had charge of
the ceremonies. At 3 o'clock a short
service was held from his late resi
dence, conducted by Rev. W. B. Dun
can, pastor of the First Methodist
Church This concluded, the funeral

GO TO THE RESCUE.
Don't Wait Till It's Too
Late, Follow Example
of a Laurens Citizen.
Roicue the aching back,
If it keeps on aching, trouble comes,
Backache is kidney ache,
If you neglect the kidneys' warning,
T?ook out for urinary trouble?diabetes,
This Laurens cltlzsn will show you
how to go to the rescue.
James Vincent, mill hand, living on
factory bill, says: Doans's Kidney
Pills did my back and kidneys a lot of
good. I have suffered for several years
with backache and nobody knows what
it is but those wbo have had it. I
thought I was doomed to pass the
ba'ance of my life with it, but I am
thankful to say that since I used Doan's
Kidney Pills I have not had the back*
ach? once. Before I used them I had
it about all the time, night and day,
and the constant dull aching across
the small of my back was sometimes so
bad I could nob get about at all and it
kept me awake all night. Nothing I
did gave me relief although I did every
thing I knew,put on liniments and wore
flatters, but nothing helped me until
got Doan's Kidney Pills at the Pal
metto Drug Go.'a store. They did
the work and cured me. Since taking
thorn my health haa been better than
during the past fifteen years.

pria'o prayer, after which Bishop Mill
son Capors was gracefully introduced
by Rev. W. D. Duncan. Bishop Ca
pers was a fellow-soldier and life-long
friend of Gen. Hampton, and made
not so much what is generally termed
an address, as a beautiful and sympa
thetic talk to tho children, taking as
his theme tho statesmanship and char
acter of Gen. Hampton.
Mr. Cooper followed with a short
talk, In which hs strongly urged tho
correct teaching of Southern history to
Mr.Foatherstono was oven more brief
than Mr. Cooper, but arose to allude,
in a few well-chosen words, to the high
record of Bish op Capers, in war as well
as In peace.
