COUNTIES NOT LIABLE.
So Decides Judge Brawley With Re
ference to Greenwood.
For several years the owners of the
bonds issued by Sullivan Township in
Laurons county and the various town
ships in Greenwood, Edgefield and
Greenville for the purpose of aiding in
tho building of the Carolina, Kooxville
& Western railroad, have been trying
through all the Courts to force tbe pay
ment of tho bonds. Appeal has fol
lowed appeal and everybody is more or
Jess familiar with the various turns in
Tho corporate oxistence of the several
townships having been abolished by a
constitutional amendment, suit was
then instituted to recover judgment
against the counties named on account
of these bonds. Judge Brawley of tho
United States Circuit Court has just
filed his opinion in tbe case of Folsom
against Greenwood county in which he
Hiistained the demurrer and dismissed
Ferguson & Feathorstone who have
represented Sullivan township and the
county from tho first, have just cause to

"It is a pleasure to sell a medicine
when our customers come in aftorwauls

them," said The Laurens Drug Co., the
popular druggist, to a Advertiser
man, "and that is why we like to sell

soern rash but our oustomers have said
so many good words in its favor that we
do not expect to have many packages

This show* the great faith in the
merit of Ml-o-na. It is really a most
unusual medlolne and the rapid in
crease in sales since the Laurens Drug

that it does all that it claims to do
cures dyspepsia, regulates digestion
and enables those who use it to eat
just what they want and when they
