HYOMKI'S SUCCESS IN LAUKENS.
Cared Many Cases of Catarrh. Lanrens
Drug Co. Will Refund Money
If It Fails.
No other medicine or treatment for
catarrh has ever achieved suoh quick
and remarkable success in 1.aureus as
Hyomoi. The fact that The Laurons
Drug Co. when they first introduced
Hyomel sold It under a positive guar

Compared with the dangerous stom

If it had not possessed unusual merit,
an oti'er like this would have resulted
in an enormous loss. But curing as it
did, Hyomel soon gainod an enviable
reputation and made many friends who
recommend it far and near. Its success
here In Laurens has been remarkablo,
and The Laurens Drug Co. are still
selling it on their personal guarantee

tried numerous remedies, but without
them doing me one bit of good. The se

as blood, full of sodimont and I could
not hold thorn, especially at night
when my rest was broken on account of

RIALTO CANNING OUTFIT.
Easy to operate, Durable and Price Within Reach of All.
This is what practical people say of this machine:
Eaurens, S. C, April 8th, 1904.
Mr. A. B. Crisp, Mountville, S. C.
Dear sir?Three years ago I purchased a Rialto Canning
Outfit and I can cheerfully recommend it to any one wishing to
buy as one of the very best, simple and easy to use with success.
I would not be without it for double the price. I have canned
enough peaches, beans, corn and okra each year to pay for it.
Very respectfull, Mrs. John F. Bolt
Clinton , S. C, Mar. 14, 1904.
To all whom it may concern :
This is to certify that I have used "Rialto Canning Outfit''
for the last season and regard it very excellent and all that is nec
essary for a small outfit. The work done with it last season
proved entirely satisfactory and I would not be without it.
Respectfully, J. B. Parrott.
Carroll, S. C, Mar. 17, 1904.
Mr. A. B. Crisp, Mountville, S. C.:
My Dear Sir:?I bought of your lather, four or five years ago, a
/Rialto Canning Outfit," and to say I am well pleased would not
express fully the wo; th and merit of the machine. I do not think
any stove room is complete without one, as it enables any house
keeper to put up all the vegetables and fruit that they may need
to supply the family and some for market.
Yours truly, W P Turner,
