Lewis and Clark Exposition Ncaring
Completions-Will be Ready on Time.
BY PRANK L. MERKICK.
Portland, Ohk. ? Work on the
grounds and buildings of the Lewis and
Clark Exposition, which will he held at
Portland, Oregon, this summer, open
ing June 1 and closing October 15, is
progressing rapidly. Eight exhibit
buildings have been completed and the
installation of exhibits begun, while
the remaining structures are ncaring
the stage where the finishing touches
will be applied. The mild Oregon win
ter has permitted the work to progress
without an interruption and when the
President presses the button on open
ing day everything will be ready and
- waiting?something unusual in exposi
Not only are the buildings far advanc
ed, butthc landscape picture also. The
grass is green and roses bloom in the
open air all the year round in Portland.
Thousands of rose bushes have been set
out on the lawns and terraces, and
these kept fresli by the winter rains,?
Oregon knows no frost bites nor sun
strokes?are awaiting the spring sun
shine to bring forth a riot of color.
All the main exposition structures are
in the style of the Spanish Renaissance
except the Forestry building, which is
a true American type, being construct
ed of huge logs in their virgin state,
thus exemplifying in its composition,
<L the timber resources of the Columbia
" river region. The structure is 200 feet
\ in length by 102 feet in width and its
I extreme height is 70. In its construc
r tion two miles of five and six foot fir
logs, eight miles of poles and tons of
shakes and cedar shingles were used.
The railroads have r.iade exceptionally
low rates to Portlan.1 for the Western
World's Pair and many people in the
East and Middle West are expected to
take advantage of them to see the
great Pacific Northwest.
NATURE TELLS VOU.
As Many a I.aureus Reader Knows Too
When the kidneys are sick,
Nature tells you all about it.
The urine is nature's calendar.
Infrequent or too frequent action;
Any urinary trouble tells of kidney ills.
Uoan's Kidney Pills cure all kidney ills,
Laurens people testify to this.
Robert Sexton, wheelwright and
blacksmith of 202 Laurens Street, says:
"I can recommend Doan's Kidney Pdls
for what they did for me. They cured
me of a very severe case of backache
from which I bad suffered greatly and
could find no relief. A nasty dull ach
ing across the loins bothered me day
and night, and when through with the
cares of the day to go to bed and get a
good night's sleep was something I had
not been able to do for a long time.?
The secretions from the kidneys gave
me trouble, were dark colored, strong
and full of sediment and disturbed my
rest at night on account of their too
frequent action. I used numerous medi
cines and wore plasters without benefi
cial results. Seeing Doan's Kidney
Pills advertised I went to the Palmetto
Drug Co.'s Store and got a box. The
change for the better was noticeable
almost at once and since using two
boxes of them according to dircc
tiocs my back haa not ached, the
secretions have become normal and
I do not have to get up at night at all.
I feel fifteen years younger tnan I did
before I used Doan's Kidney Pills."

Mrs. A. C. Dillard Struck by Burglar.
Mrs. A. C. Dillard, who resides on
North Liberty street, had a thrilling
encounter with a daring negro burglar
this morning. At the time, she was in
the act of going from the dining room
of her home to a bed room, where her
husband, who came in on an early train
from Atlanta, was sleeping, and when in
the hallway she met a negro, who wore a
light overcoat aud gloves. The negro
struck Mrs. Dillard and she fell. He
then made his escape from the house,
and when once free in the yard, he
scaled over a garden fence and disap
peared, eluding arrest. After being
knocked down, the woman screamed for
her husband, who appeared on the
scene, but the negro had made his es
cape. Mrs. Dillard was not seriously
hurt by the blow, but she suffered se
verely from the nervous shock.
The negro was > vidently out for
stealing, and doubtless belongs to that
daring crowd of sneak thieves who for
several weeks past have been walking
into residences of the city from the
front door, taking overcoats, wraps or
cloaks from a hall rack, and walking
away. The police are working on the
case, but so far there are no develope
meuts. -Spartanbut'g cor. t?> Greenville

J. Walter Cray, Jr.. of Greenville re

The suit was a damage ease against
the Southern Railroad for injuries sus

lanta on Dee. 17th, 1003. The amount
of damages claimed was $15,000.00.
Mr. Gray has quite a number of
friends in Laurens who will be pleased
to know that he is to be indemnified
somewhat for his injuries.
