COURT IN NEWBERRY.
Heavy Docket (or Solicitor Cooper to
The Court of General Sessions for
.dewberry county will convene on next
Monday morning at 10 o'clock, Judge
James C. Klugh, of this circuit, pre
siding. Solicitor R. A. Cooper, of
Laurena, will appear in Newberry for
the first time as solicitor, having been
elected since the creation of the two
additional circuits, and this being the
first court held in Newberry under the
ten-circuit Act. Mr. Cooper's first
court was in Abbeville last week, and
he disposed of the business before him
with dispatch, making a fine record in
beginning his work.
There are a large number of cases on
the docket for trial, and many bills which
will be handed out to the grand jury.
It is hardly possible that the business
can be disposed of in one week.?New
berry Herald and News, June 23.
Two Negroes Shot.
Cal Turner, a negro from almost
everywhere, is dodging the officers up
in Sullivan township.
According to reports Cal got into a
little game with several other negroes
at Prospect Church (colored) Sunday
June 18th, and just to make things in
teresting and possibly memorable a
shooting bout was rung in. |
Cal seems to have got the drop on
the bunch for he brought down two,
one of whom, Will Young Sullivan, was
shot in the back and dangerously
wounded. Rufe Childress who caught
the second ball from Turner's pistol
was not seriously shot.
Only one remedy in the world that
will at once stop itcniness of the skin in
any part of the body; Doan's Ointment.

Public School Libraries.
Mr. Editor; Allow me space to say a
few words in regard to public school
libraries. During the year 1904 more
than four hundred libraries were estab
lished in the state. The work did not
begin until sometime in March. I think
it is remarkable that such a large muri
ner has been established in such a short
time, though there are some few schools
yet that have not obtained libraries,
but we hope to see them follow suit.
The time has come when every voca
tion in life demands a better knowledge
and greater skill in the educational
sphere. In the rapid advance toward
ppreater excellence, education plays an
The Pennsylvania Railroad had long
held to the policy of requiring the young
men entering the mechanical depart
ment to have some technical training,
both in theory and practice, and to se
cure this, technical colleges were estab
lished. There they received the proper
training. And now to secure the pro
per training and developement of the
child and to give him a broader view of
things in general, public school libraries
should be established in every school in
the state. Here the pupil can spend
his idle moments in reading good litera
ture, something which will be beneficial
to his future welfare. "Busy pupils
^are idle if they might be better em
The establishment of these libraries
will tend greatly to lessen the illiteracy
throughout the State. It would be in
teresting to know what interpretation
we might put on the following, "Ye
?hall know the truth and the truth shall
make you free." But there are some
things worse than illiteracy. It is the per
petuation of the condition which makes
illiteracy. From the present stage of
? advancement the illiteracy of the future
will be inexcusable. We can then pro
vide for this by establishing libraries in
every school throughout the different
counties. The education of the children
cannot wait for the reformation of the
the teacher?they must have some
other means of developing their mental
The school gives the preliminary pre
paration for education, and the library

No class of pupils can grow in knowl
edge without access to a library. This
library should contain only the best
Noble poems and choice prose from
master writers do more to stimulate
education than any number of didactic
articles on that subject.
High ideals and exalted visions put
men to climbing sooner than any
amount of sober and well-meant ex
Now in conclusion we hope to see
every school throughout Laurens County
have a good library.

WORK WEAKENS THE KIDNEYS.
Doan's Kidney Pills Have Done Oreat
Service for People Who Work in
Most Laurens people work every day
in some strained, unnatural position?
bending canstantly over a desk?riding
on jolting wagons or cars?doing labo
rious housework; lifting, reaching or
pulling, or trying the back in a hundred
and one other ways. All these strains
tend to wear, weaken and injure the
kidneys until they fall behind in their
work of filtering the poisons from the
tdood. Doan's Kidney Pills cure sick
kidneys, put new strength in bad
backs. Laurens cures prove it.
J. H. Odell of Factory Hill, Mill
hand, says: "I have been suffering from
backache for a long while. At times I
could not work on account of the aching
across the small of my back and the;
dull pain gave me no rest day or night.
I could not stand straight and if I sat
for a hit and attempted to arise I had
to catch hold of something to pull my
self up. The secretions from the kid
neys were very red, full of sediment
and got like a jelly after they stood for
a while. I could not retain them any
length of time and had to rise often at
night. I tried several highly recom
mended remedies and used liniments,
but nothing did me any good until I got
a box of Doan's Pills at the Palmetto
Drug Co. and used them according to
directions. They gave relief almost at
once and since using them the kidney
secretions have gotten clear and nat
ural and I do not nave to get up at nights
as I used to, while the backache has all

charming young hostess welcomed her
guests. A game of Nations was much
enjoyed, the tally being kept on score
cards decorated with great cleverness
with Gibson heads.
A tempting course of refreshments,
ice cream, cake and punch, was served.
Those present were Mesdnmes Perrin

On Tuesday evening Miss Jones again
entertained but this time the invitations
were for a Whist Party, which proved
to be one of the most charming func
tions given this Summer. The guests
spent a merry, informal evening, deli
cious refreshments appearing on the
card tables at the end of a hard fought
game a whist. The guests were: Miss

The Farmers' Union of Texas has re

the condition of the cotton crop. John

that these 160,000 reports show reduc

He says that at the present outlook

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 is 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
nim, as our neighbors will testify. I
thank God for so valuable a medicine."
