Scared the Mule.
There is a gentleman living in the
Western portion of this county, whose
mules are cared for and they show it.
If there is anything that a mule de
lights to do it is to show his keep. Some
times he does so at the expense of his
best friend. Not long since this man's
wife started to Laurens driving one of
these 'peart' mules. Long before she
reached [the city the mule spied a big
white rock with "Davis, Roper & Co"
painted on it and shied; a little further
he spied a stump adorned in the same
manner and cut the same dido; still
further on he had the same experience
with a bridge with like decorations.
Ry this time the good lady was much
worried with trying to keep the pam
pered animal in the road, and rather
warm with the exercise, as well as
with her friends, Davis, Roper & Co.
At this stage she drove up to the store
of that well known firm and asked for
a drink of water. The polite clerk
made haste to fetch her a think that
was cool and refreshing anil just as
she was in the act of putting it to her
lips behold there was Davis, Roper &
Co. painted in the bottom. No! she
exclaimed, there are on every tree, every
rock, every stump and every bridge be
tween here and home and 1 will die be
fore I will drink off them.

My back has caused considerable mis

times, compelling me to lay oft work.
A man without a sound * back is not
much good at my work as it requires
heavy lifting. There was a dull heavy
pain and weakness across my loins and
whenever 1 caught cold it caught in my
back and knocked me out as effectively
as though I had been hit with a club.
The secretions from the kidneys caused
me great inconvenience by disturbing
my rest at night and were irregular in
appearance and contained brickdust
sediment. i used numerous remedies
but nothing had any good effect until i
read about Doan's Kidney Pills in our
papers and procured a box at the Pal

them the kidney secretions cleared up

Ralph Bingham was tho best one
man attraction that has been heard in
Laurens for sometime. Mr. Bingham
is u versatile genius and tho many
things he does are all done well. De
cidedly the most delightful part of tho
program was the musical numbers.?
His violin solos "Thc-Prayer-Cavaleria
Rusticana," a selection from "II Tro
toro" and a little gem of an encore
charmed the audience. Mrs. Lucas as
his accompanist is entitled to an equal
division of the honors. Mr. Bingham
considered himself fortunate in secur
ing on no notico at all, so capable,
truly ["sympathetic and competent an
assistant. Mr. Bingham has a full
powerful voice and his descriptive
song "Shakespeare's Seven Ages" was
also enjoyed. We must compliment
this audience on their quiet attention.
Tho coughing, restless, noisy ones were
conspicuously absent. The late comers
were perhaps too ill with the grip to
get out. Of the readings the selection
from Whitcomb Riley would perhaps
receive a majority. The Negro Picnic
at Louisville was nevertheless a close
Having written ourselves down as
one in love with Mr. Bingham there is
just one criticism we would make and
it is this: Let the audience do mere of
the laughing. Mr. Bingham does not
want to be considered 'a lecturer. He
is an entertainer worthy of the title
and having gained the sympathy of his
audience can well afford to trust them.
The contagiousness of laughter is well
understood and its aid may have to be
invoked by some less gifted than Mr.
Bingham but in our opinion he not only
does not need to invoke the aid of this
human weakness?it even detracts af
ter a time from the full enjoyment he
would otherwise create.
