CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH REMEDY
THE BEST AND MOST POPULAR.
"Mothers buy it for croupy children,
railroad men buy it for severe coughs
and elderly people buy it for la grippe,"
say Moore Bros., Eldon, Iowa. Wo
sell more of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy than any other kind. It seems to
have taken the lead over several other
good brands." There is no question
but this medicine is the best that can
be procured for coughs and colds,
whether it be a child or an adult that
is afflicted. It always cures and cures
quickly. Sold by Laurens Drug Co.
and Dr. B. F. Posey.
When the fire occurred on the premi
ses of the Thornwell Orphanage on the
4th of November last, there were hard
times for a while for two hundred or
phans. They had neither pantry nor
storehouse, and had "Old Mother Hub
bard gone to the cupboard" she would
have found that the cupboard was not
bare; it was gone! All the pickles and
preserves and dried fruit and other lit
tle supplies fixed in the summer for the
winter's use, were gone up in smoke.
And in addition, all the (lour and meal
ami rice and sugar and molasses and
bacon and vinegar and tea and coffee
had been fuel for the devouring (lames!
There was not even a kitchen left,
much less a storehouse; but the people
(God bless the people, their hearts are
always right), well, the people came to
the rescue and now we have completed
and are ready to open a handsome new
building, 100 feet one way by 05 the
other. It is covered with tin and it
took fifty-five squares to cover it. The
(loers of the kitchen and dairy are of
the best cement; the walls are of brick
laid in cement. It has been furnished
with ranges and stoves. The Majestic
Range Company of St. Louis have
given us a splendid new range and two
portable bakers. Hut it woefully lacks
something! There is not a dust of
meal nor grain of rice, nor a cruise of
oil nor a pound of sugar,-there is
nothing- in the storehouse. Why, not
even a mouse has gone there to hunt
his dinner, not a fly is looking out for
the pickings! And yet on that store
house 260 children with their teachers
are dependent for their duili 'oread.
It is time for a house-warming! Let
us have it. What have you at hand
that you can send? Do not wait for a
committee to call on you or a preacher
to get after you. The third week in
April is our reception week. Every
body will he at home. If you get your
gifts sent in that week it will not be
late. Somebody asks, "What are the
children going to do till then for some
thing to eat? "If you are the one who
asks, we will just say that there are
fifty-two reception weeks at the Thorn
well Orphanage, but the third week in
April is reception week in particular.
It is to commemorate the lire and to
make us feel good that once more we
have a kitchen and a dairy and the
trimmings that go with them. Do not
forget. Send something, everything!
Fill up that storehouse for once. It is
a right good Sized one and there is no
danger of over-crowding.
God bless you. dear friends, and may
He put it into your hearts to make
glad the fatherless.

Death of Mra. Rhett Reld.

last at the home of her parents, Mr.

Rubbing the back won't cure backache.
A liniment may relieve, but can't cure.
Backache comes from the inside?from
Doan's Kidnoy Pills get inside?
They cure sick kidneys.
Here is Laurens proof that this is so:
Charles Loke, mill hand, of Factory
Hill, says: "Doan's Kidney Pills in my
opinion are the best backache cure in
this world. They cured mc and 1 have
had backache for at least two years,
and have been so bad at times I could
not get out of bed, much loss go to
work. I have had my wife rub it with,
liniment until it was all a blister. I
tried numerous remedies, but without
them doing me one bit of good. The
secretions from the kidneys were as red
as blood, full of sediment and I coidd
not hold them, especially at night,
when my rest was broken, on account
of my having to get up a number of
times. I learned of Doan's Kidney
Pills and sent to the Palmetto Drug
Co. for a box. I did not believe they
would do mo any more good than the
other remedies \ had tried, but 1 was
mistaken I felt better the very next
day, and mv back gradually became
strong and the aching disappeared. I
do not have to get up at nights now at
all and the kidneys have become regu
lar and natural in action."
