ASYLUM DEMANDS NEW RULES.
Patients From Other States Must Be Ex*
eluded for Lack ot Room.
The report on the admission of
^jon-resident patients to the state hos
pital for the insane was filed with
Governor Heyward Juno 7th by
Dr. B. W. Taylor, president of the
board of regents and Superintendent
Babcoek. The report goes fully into
the history of matters, and says: "It
appears that about ton years ago
practically no patient was refused ad
mission to the hospital so long as there
was room. Later, pay patients, not in
the state, were refused by direction of
the board of regents. In 1901 Governor
McSweeney corres]x>ndcd with the au
thorities in North Carolina and Georgia
relative to alleged South Carolinians in
those states who could not be admitted
to their charitable institutions under
existing conditions. The governor of
North Carolina decided to enter into a
compact with Governor McSweeney
relative to the removal of insane pa
tients to their own states.
"Now, the refusal of patients is con
trary to the time honored traditions of
charity administration in South Caro
lina, but with a daily average of over
1,260 patients in the hospital, every
available bed is a distinct asset for
helpness and needy South Carolinians.
Five hundred and twenty-seven patients
were received last year and up to June
1 this year there were 223 new admis
sions while 13 new patients were re
ceived the first four days in June.
"Under the stress of such circum
stances the officers of the hospital call
on the probate judges through the gov
ernor to guard the interests of the state
and the hospital by refusing to send in
all prospective patients wdio are not
strictly citizens or South Carolina and
by virtue of this citizenship entitled to
the charities of the state. Evidently
the authorities at the hospital have de
ferred the evil day of excluding any un
fortunates whose cases are referred to
them, but a time has arrived for
rightly enforcing the law and thus pro
tecting the interests of the state. It
looks as if the examples of our neigh
bors, North Carolina and Georgia,
would hereafter be followed and their
citizenship too, be forced back upon
Stocking the Streams With Fish.
Congressman Johnson has received
notice from the United States fish
commission that 10,400 fish have been
placed in Enoree river and its tribu
taries upon application of citizens en
dorsed by him. Mr. Johnson wishes to
have applications from all over his
district for fish to stock the streams
with and will see that all are promptly
filled. Any streams or ponds in the
Fourth District will be stocked if pro
per application be made. Address
Congressman Johnson, Spartanburg,

Miss May Henderson returned to her

An alarm of fire was given in the city
last Saturday morning at 3:15 o'clock
from the county jail. The fire company
promptly responded but it was ascer
tained that it was only some rags and
trash which had been placed on top of
one of the sheet iron cages that was
It is conjectured that some of the
prisoners had put it there and set fire
to it in the hope that the sheriff would
throw open the doors of the jail when
when the alarm was given and give
them an opportunity to break jail. If
so the game did not work.
It is the habit of many persons, when
an alarm of fire is given, to discharge
fire arms indiscriminately. During the
excitement Saturday morning, some
one fired a shot which took effect just
above the knee on the horse belonging
to Dr. C. L. Poole, which was out in
the lot. The horse is at present incapac
itated for use, but it is not permanently
Death of Mrs. Douglas Barksdale.
Mrs. Lily Pair Barksdale, wife of
Mr. C. D. Barksdale, died at her home
in this city at ten o'clock last Thurs
day morning. Mrs. Barkskale had been
in ill health for several years, but her
last illness was very short and her
death a shock to many of her friends.
Her husband and sisters, Mrs. Lucy
Phifer of Newberry and Mrs. Bettie
Clarke of Gainesville, Ga., were with
her at the end, but her only child, Miss
Laura Barksdale, who received her dip
loma at Hollins Institute, Va., a few
days ago, did not arrive until several
hours after her mother's death.
Mrs. Barksdale was a daughter of
Dr. Drury Fair, who died at Selma,
Ala., in the sixties, and in that city she
was married to Mr. Barksdale, on the
9th of June, 1881.
Since her marriage she has lived con
tinuously at Laurens and her charming,
womanly personality, unusual intellect
and culture have greatly endeared her
She was a devoted member of the
Presbyterian Church and until her
health failed, was active in Church

U. S soldiers who served in Cuba dur
ing the Spanish War know what this
disease is, and that ordinary remedies
have little more effect than so much
water. Cuban Diarrhoea ir, almost as
severe and dangerous as a mild attack
of cholera. There is only one remedy
however, that can always be depended
upon as will be seen by the following
certificate from Mrs. Minnie Jacobs of
Houston, Texas: "I hereby certify
that Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy cured my husband
of a severe attack of Cuban diarrhoea,
which he brought home from Cuba. We
had several doctors but they did him no
good. One bottle of this remedy cured
him, as our neighbors will testify. I
thank God for so valuable a medicine."

Cadet Wm. R. Richey, Valedictorian.
At the commencement exercises of
the Calliopeon and Polytecturic literary
societies of the South Carolina Military
Academy, held in Hibernian Hall, Char
leston, on Friday evening, Cadet Wm.
R. Richey, Jr., of Laurens, delivered
The "News and Courier" of the 10th
has this to say of Cadet Richey's speech:
Valedictorian William R. Richey spoke
on "The Cause of the Downfall of Na
tions." He had evidently prepared his
oration with much care, and his delivery
was forceful and strong. He spoke of
the downfall of the dynasties of ancient
days, and deplored the material ideals
which the people of today are setting
up for themselves. He was greeted en
thusiastically. After the close of his
speech proper, he addressed his class
mates in a few well chosen words.
Cadet Richey, who is a son of Mayor
W. R. Richey and a bright and promis
ing young man, is of the graduating
claas of the citadel.
Just What Everyone Should Do.
Mr. J. T. Barber of Irwinville, Ga.,

Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy at
hand ready for instant use. Attacks of
colic, cholera morbus and diarrhoea come
on so suddenly that there is no time to
hunt a doctor or go to the store for medi
cine. Mr. Barber says: "I have tried
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarr
hoea Remidy which is one of the best
medicines 1 ever saw. I keep a bottle
of it in my room as I have had several
attacks or colic and it has proved to be
tbc best medicine I overused." Sold by

NOW IS THE TIME FOR HYOMEI.
Par Easier to Cure Catarrh Now Than at
Any Other Season.
Now is the time to use Hyomci, when
the early summer days make it so easy
to cure catarrhal troubles. The Ilyo
mei treatment breathed for a few min
utes three or four times a day in May
or June, will do good twice as quickly
as it diu in January, and nearly every
one knows that used fathfully then, it
completely rids the system of Catarrh.
Hyomei is a purely vegetable pre
paration whose active curative proper
ties are given when it is breathed by
the aid of the pocket inhaler that comes
with every outfit. It destroys all germ
life in the air passages, purifies the
blood by supplying additional ozone,
and its healing volatile, antiseptic fra
grance reaches every corner 01 the re
spiratory tract as no medicine taken
through the stomach can possibly do.
The complete Hyomei outfit costs but
one dollar, and consists of a neat in
haler that can be carried in the purse
or vest-pocket and will last a lifetime,
a medicine dropper, and a bottle of
Hyomei. Extra bottles of Hyomei can
be procured, if desired, for titty cents.
At this season of the year when ca
tarrhal troubles can be so quickly and
readily cured, the merits of the Hyo
mei treatment should be carefully inves
tigated by everyone and a complete out
fit should be in every home. The Lau
rens Drug Co. give their personal guar
antee with every Hyomei outfit they
sell to refund the money if it does not
give satisfaction. There is no risk
whatever to the purchaser of Hyomei.
