Big Sales for Lnurens.

fifteen years from a small business to

both newspaper and circular, and the
people knew from experience that the
bargains offered would be bargains.
The firm of J. E. Minter & Bro. is
younger, but they are hustlers, and
their business methods show a clear
insight into business principles. They
likewise had made a tremendous elfort
to bring the people in.
0. B. Simmons Co., veteran mer
chants and particularly good business
men, did their share in attracting the
crowd to the city and to their store,
where there is likewise a special sale in

from the constant stream of customers
and the bundles brought out, the days
business must have been satisfactory.

the advertisements in this week's paper
can only carry a vague idea of the
great values being offered.

where the good old bishop exerted him
self to the utmost to show her every
thing that was worth seeing. The
queen paid ninny compliments to her
host, and having learned that lie was a
family man graciously Inquired how
many children he had. It happens that
the Danish word for "children" Is al
moat Identical In Round with the Ice

worthy bishop, whoso knowledge of
Danish wns not bo complete as It
might have been, understood her maj

and promptly answered;
"Two hundred children!" cried the

"Busily enough, ploacte your majes

CURE FOR HAY FEVER.
Laurcns Drug Co. Say Hyomei Will Give
Relief?Sold Under Guarantee.
The season for hay fever is almost
at hand, and many people feel that
they will be obliged'to go away in or
der to avoid the sneezing, watery eyes,
and other annoying symptoms of this
disagreeable summer disease.
The Laurens Drug Co. wish to an
nounce that when Hyomei is used as a
preventive, or a cure, there will be no
hay fever. They advise daily treat
ment with Hyomei for two or three
weeks before the usual time for the
appearance of hay fever. If this is
done, the attack will be prevented.?
However, if the preventive treatment
is not started soon enough, and the dis
ease makes its appearance, use Hyo
mei six or seven times daily, and relief
will be given at once.
There is no stomach dosing when
Hyomei is used. Breathed through the
neat pocket inhaler that comes with
every outfit, its medicated air reaches
the minutest air cells, killing all germs
and healing the irritated mucous mem
The complete Hyomei outfit costs
but $1, extra bottles 50 cents. It is the
only treatment for hay fever sold by
Laurens Drug Co. under a guarantee
to refund the money if it does not give
Spoke at Fourth of July
He Says Wail and Vote on Dispensary
Question in a General
Senator Tillman spoke at the Fourth
of July celebration in Greenville last
Tuesday, delivering a speech on agri
culture. About 2,000 people heard him.
After proceeding for a while with his
speech he was urged by some of his
auditors to give them something be
sides points on farming and selling cot
I ton. They wanted to hear one of his
old time political speeches. But the
senator spoke under mental restraint
and stuck to his text pretty well all
the way through. At one time, break
ing off from his line of thought, he
referred to McLaurin and then had this
to say about the dispensary:
"The real fight on the dispensary will
be in the Democratic primary when
those not registered and who arc de
prived of the right of voting under the
Brice law will be entiled to vote ?
There are 30,000 men in South Carolina
who can't vote under the Brice law.
You have got no business fooling with
the dispensary until the primary. Let
all of the people determine it. I will
say this however, that we have got to
put the dispensary in the skillet to
scald and clean it, and if we can't do
that then I'm in for killing it. If it's
rotten they've made iL rotton. I'll bo
in the race next year for the Senate if
my health don't break down and I'll
see the men who are trying to mur
der it by underhanded methods. I will
meet them teeth to teeth. I have al
ways called a spade a spade, and if it
is true that I have been tamed by my
stay in the Senate it was because I had
to mingle with mummies. But. now if
you want to settle the dispensary, let's
wail and vote it out of the State, not
out of a few counties. The latter plan
will give you a sort of negative prohi
bition. After the dispensary you will
get prohibition and what next?"
Voice: "Blind tigers."
"Why that fellow speaks now as if
he was one them," Tillman replied.
"Yes, you will have free liquor. Some
of you will get it shipped in in jugs,
and the school fund will be cut and
other things will happen. Then the
people will cry for high license. Thai
in its essence is the old bar-room sys
tem with constitutional limitations. I
want to say here that there is no war
rant under the law for those beer dis
pensaries. They are just ordinary low
saloons. The dispensary lias been made
an evil by the Legislature.
