Citizens Meet and Discuss
Committee of Three Prominent Busi
ness Men Selected to Confer
with Railroad Authorities.
At a meeting last Thursday after
noon, which was a'tended by members
of the City CouncM, the Board of Trade
and a sVrong representation of citizens
generally, steps looking to the im
provement of the pasaengor depot, sit
uation as it now exists, were taken. C.
H. Roper was chosen Chairman of the
meeting and W. L. Taylor, Secretary.
On motion of W. L. Gray, a com
mittee consisting of T. D. Darling
ton, C. fl. Roper and J. C. Owings was
selected to represent the city in com
municating or conferring with the
railroad authorities In regard to the
matter. This committee has already
procoeded to prosent to Mr. Childs,
President of the Columbia, Nowberry
& Laurens and Mr. Anderson, General
Superintendent, of the Charleston ?fc
Western Carolina, Laurens' position.
As indicated by the attendance upon
this meeting and the general tono of
the discussion of the subject Lau
rens means business. What is wanted
and what will he urged is the removal
of the passenger depot to a more con
venient location for the traveling pub
lic. As it now stands the crossing of
the railroad inordor to reach the ticket
office and waiting rooms is always at
tended with inconvenience and more or
less danger. Every oce knows this, the
railroads themselves admit it. Now
since several new tracks have been put
In, the inconvenionce Is Increased and
the situation more menacing to the
lives of those who have occasion to pass
Relief quick and sure is the demand
of the hour. Can we get it? The effort
will be made.
"I have bron troubled for some timo

The Laureus Drag Co 's Uencrous Offer
Hyomei Treatment Costs Nothing
It Cures Catarrh.
Many who aro in need of Hyomei, the
treatment that cures catarrh without
stomach dosing, have not yet realized
its wondeful healing powers. They
want everyone who Is troubled with
catarrh or catarrhal colds, to get a Hy
omei outfit from them with tbe under
standing that lc is absolutely free un
less it cures catarrh and frees the sys
tem from the g ^rms of grippe and in
fluenza. The first clay's use of Hy
omei will show by Its exhilarating and
vitalizing effects, that it is do'.ng wo id.
Use It for a full month entirely at The
Laurens Drug Co.'s risk. If, at the
end of thirty days, you can say that
Hyomei has not helped you,they will re
turn your money without question or
argument. The complete Hyomei treat
ment co3ts but one dollar,and consist of
an Inhaler that can bo carried in tbe
pocket or purse, a medicine dropper,
and a bottle of Hyomei. The Inhaler
will last a lifetime,' and if one bottle
does not cure, extra bottles can be ob
tained for fifty cents. It is the most
economical of all remedies advertised
for the cure of catarrh, and tbe only
one where you can obtain a month's
treatment from your local druggist
that costs nothing if it fails to cure.
Try Hyomei for a month. It cannot
harm you, as it is purely vegetable,
and cures catarrh without any stom
ach dosing. If it fai's, the loss falls en
tirely upon The Laurens Drag Co.
On the special occasion of my recout
attendance as Commissioner to the
General Assembly of the Presbyterian
Church at Nashville, I was taken with
a seyero dysentery, accompanied by
great pain. Two doses of Dr. King's
Dysentery and Diarrhoea Cordial gave
me relief and enabled me to be in
regular attendance and participate in
the leading movements of that body.

Gentlemen: 1 desire to call your at
tention to tho amemdment to Section
1210 of tho Code, 1902, found on page
528 of the acts of 1004. It says, "each

Tuesday of July 1905 and on the first

shall appoint for each school district
in their county three school trustees
from tho qualified doctors and taxpay
