Grave Trouble Foreseen.
It needs but little foresight, to tell,
that when your stomach and liver are
badly affected, grave trouble is ahead,
unless you take the proper medicine for
your disease, as Mrs. John A. Young,
of Clay, N. Y., did. She says: "I had
neuralgia of the liver and stomach, my
heart was weakened, and I could not
eat. I was very bad for a long time,
but in Electric Bitters, I found just
what I needed, for they quickly relieved
and cured me." Best medicine for
weak women. Sold under guarantee

Presentment of Grand Jury.
The following is the final present
ment of the Grand Jury for the July
term of Court, A. D. 1905:
To the Honorable J. C. Klugh, Presid
We, the Grand Jurors, for Laurens
County, beg to submit this, our final
presentment for the July term of
1: We have carefully examined all
Bills handed us by the Solicitor during
the present term and made our pre
sentment upon each, as was in our
judgment just and proper.
2: We have investigated thoroughly,
all complaints and recommendations
laid before us.
3: We note with pleasure the im
provements being made in and about
the Court House by our Supervisor,
and recommend that he continue the
work until all recommendations in past
presentments be complied with, such
as new blinds for the windows down
stairs, electric lights for the Court
4: The Jail Committee visited the
buildings and premises and found the
same in bad condition. They respect
fully recommend that the proper au
thorities have erected at once a new
cook and dining room, as the one now
used for cooking purposes is altogether
unfit and is rotting down.
5: Also, the plastering up stairs in
the Jail is falling off and is much in need
of immediate attention. We recommend
that this work be done at once and
that a thorough white washing of the
building be not delayed.
6: We further recommend that a new
stable be built at once, and that it be
erected on a more elevated site than
the present one, thus ensueing more
cleanliness; and further that the pres
ent cook room be removed or torn
down and the lumber used in the erec
tion of a buggy shed on some suitable
place on the premises. It is important
that this work be done at once and
should not longer be postponed.
7: The Committee appointed to visit
the County Home report that they
found everything in good order, the
houses in good repair, the rooms of the
inmates neatly kept, and the premises
generally in a clean and healthy condi
tion, and the keeper of the Home, as
well as the County, is to be congratu
lated on the cheerful and contented
disposition of the inmates.
8: The Committee appointed to ex
amine into the condition of the unused
cistern on the lino of the C. & W. C.
Railroad bridge, over Little River,
near the Cotton Mill, have performed
their duty and find that said cistern is
a source of danger both to the health
and lives of the citizens in the commu
nity and immediate vicinity, and this
body, therefore urgently recommends
and authorizes the city authorities to
attend to this matter at once, and in
the event that it is not done within a
reasonable time, then we authorize the
County Supervisor to fill up said cistern
and present the bill of expense for such
work to the proper party or parties on
whoso land the said cistern is situated;
provided, however the proper owners
refuse themselves to do such work.
9: In reference to the health of the
citizens of the city, your Committo ap
pointed for this purpose beg to report
that they find numerous places calcu
lated to breed diseases, to-wit: The
short alley immediately behind Poaey'a
and Bennett's stores, around and about
the premises of Harrison Hunter's
and Brown Franklin's restaurants, as
well as the fenced lot immediately be
hind Bennett's store should be cleaned
up at once by the city authorities or the
users of said prcmses. Wo also find
the same filthy or unhealthy condition
existing in rear of Kennedy Bros.'
store made so by slops and waste water
from Tildy Rice's restaurant. Also, we
find the premises around Ben Madden's
restaurant in the same filthy condition.
Also, the premises in roar of the City
10: Another source of danger to
health is the drainage pipes running
from the Ben Delia Hotel down Jail
alley into Jail street, thence across
Main and emptying into the branch;
and another drainage pipe or conductor
running from the same premises in the
direction of "Possum Hollow." The
same objection also applies to the
drainage pipes running from the Ben
Delia Pharmacy and the Palmetto Drug
Company's places of business and the
Bottling Works. The scum and odor
arising from these sources are ex
tremely obnoxious and unhealthy, and
this Grand Jury would urge that imme
diate stops be taken to provide against
the danger to health by reason of this
imperfect system of drainage. Also, we
find the premises in rear of W. L.
Gray's "Emporium" block of buildings
are much in need of cleaning, and the
drainage also should he looked
after immediately in rear of the Laun
dry in said building.
11: J. A. Smith, J. L. Crawford, C.
W. Taylor and A. R. Holmes were ap
pointed as a Committee to examine the
books of the county and finances of the
county, during the interim of the clos
ing of this Court and the sittings of
the next Court at which time they are
ordered to report to this body.
12: In conclusion, this Grand Jury
would enter its protest against a sys
tem that has caused considerable annoy
ance to the farming interests, in that
creditors holding claims against par
ties for supplies, or otherwise postpone
the collection or enforcement of such
claims until the planting season or in
the midst of the most busy work sea
son, thus entailing much annoyance and
trouble to innocent parties who happen
to have said debtors under contract for
the year, which innocent employer has
to ''stand good" for or settle the ac
count himself, in order to protect him
self in ^holding or retaining the ser
vices of such debtor. Wo would
recommend that our Representa
tives in the Legislature try to
remedy this unfortunate condition
by encouraging the passage of n
law requiring creditors to either en
force their claims in the fall of the
year, or desist from such collection un
til the creditor's contract has expired
with his employer.
13: In the discharge of our duties,
this Grand Jury has to thank the Pre
siding Judge for the instruction afforded
it and also the assistance and advice
?nven us by the efficient and industrious
Solicitor, Robert A. Cooper, and other
courtesies extended us during this
All of which is respectfully submit

"Oh, 1 AM SO TIRED!"
Is hoard daily from old and young, rich and poor. Did you ever stop and consider
the cause of this remark? We will venture to say nine cases out of ten are
caused by improper digestion. This, or other symptoms of Indigestion such as
nervousness, nausea, neart-burn, sour stomach, flatulency and despondency,
should be a warning to you who are in danger of having indigestion, the great
est enemy of American health to-day, fasten its merciless fangs on your health.
Remember, "A Stitch in time saves nine", and a bottle or the celebrated
Kellum's Sure Cure for Indigestion has saved untold misery to people in many
parts of this broad land, by curing them permanently of this miserable disease.
Yes, not like the pepsin digestives that help for a time, but cures permanently
by causing the digestive organs to perform their functions. Nature being such
a great rectifier of its own ills, with the assistance of this powerful medicine,
gives you a healthy stomach and removes indigestion and its symptoms perma
nently. Sold on a $5.00 guarantee. 50 cents and $1.00 per bottle at
