JOHN G. CAPERS.
He Will Not be Judge and May Not
be Reappolnted to the Position
He Now Holds!
Washington, Jan. 15. ? President
Roosevelt, it is stated, on the best au
thority, has told District Attorney
Capers that he will not be appointed
to the Judgeship in case provision for a
new Federal Judge for South Carolina
is made by Congress. There is some
doubt, also, about Mr. Capers being re
appointed to the position he now holds.
Tho term of District Attorney Capers
ended on December 16. ThenjL has as
yet been no reappointment, for the rea
son that an investigation is being made
against Mr. Capers.
At the department of justice It is ac
knowledged that formal charges have
been filed affecting the efficiency and
character of Mr. Capers. What these
are, or who filed them, the department
will not disciose. They arc of a char
acter, however, calling for investiga
tion, and this is under way.
It is the President's purpose to re
appoint Mr. Capers to his present posi
tion, unless this investigation should
disclose facts that make such reappoint

Supreme Court Decides That They Must
Washington, Jan. 15.?The case of Gra
ham and Marsh, the former Auditor and
the latter Treasurer of Greenwood
county, S. C, vs. S. Allen Folsom and
others, has been decided by the Supreme
Court of the United States, adversely
to the county. The opinion of the court
was delivered by Justice McKenna and
affirmed the decision of the United
States Court for the District of South
Carolina. The action was brought to
compel the payment of interest on
$18,000 worth of bonds issued by town
ship Ninety Six of Abbeville, after
wards Greenwood county, South Caro
lina, to aid in the construction of the
Greenville and Port Royal Railroad.
The road was never constructed, but
the Circuit Court held for Folsom on
the ground that he was an innocent
purchaser. The case involved the val
idity of a South Carolina state Ipw, di
recting that taxes should not be collect
ed to pay bonds given on railroads that
were never built, but the court held
that the obligation of contract could
not be thus impaired.
Christmas at Watts Mills.
The Rev. W. D. Hammett writes
the Baptist Courier:
It was quite a joyful occasion with
the Watts Mill Church and Sunday
School on last Saturday night before
Christmas. A well filled Christmas
tree and well trained children with ad
dresses suitable to a Christmas offering
was given to as many or more people
than could find room in our building.
Miss Ellis, our lady missionary, was
quite efficient in the training of the
children for the occasion; all the chil
dren acted their part and spoke this
Christmas greetings with exactness
and very impressively.
On Wednesday, one week before the
time, they began to train and prepare
the children, but all was a success, and
above all let me say among quite a
number of the receivers of many nice
presents. I was presented with a nice
overcoat by the Watts Mills Church.
This was quite a treat to their pastor,
who was ready for the emergency. We
are very proud of our little Watts
mills school and I expect to give them
two full Sundays another year. Pray
for us that it nvey be the best of all.

100 Years Old.
A frame house can be kept in good
order for 100 years if painted with the
L. & M. Paint about once in ten to fif
teen years. This is because the L. &
M. Zinc, hardens the L & M. White
Lead and gives the paint extraordinary
life. It also makes it cover an enor
mous surface, so that four gallons L.
& M. and three gallons Linseed Oil will
paint a moderate sized house.
L. & M, costs about $1.20 per gallon.

ter Cotton Mills, Rock Hill, S. C,
"Twenty-two years ago I painted my
residence with L. & M. It looks bet

three years ago.
L. & M. costs about $1.20 per gallon.
Seven gallons at $1.20 per gallon, or
$8.40 will paint a moderate sized house
and it takes seven gallons of other
mixed paint at $1.50 to do it. because
Linseed Oil sold to you as paint costs

Committee Has Reported the Impractica?
bility of Carrying Out the Plan -Many
Defects Pointed Out.
. Columbia, Jan. 11.?The joint com

to-day adverse to instituting the bi

with other provisions of the constitu

While the amendment was correctly
entered on the journal of the Senate it
was not on the journal of the House and
House journal was quoted in substantia

that as this was required by tho consti

Further, there aro other constitutional
provisions which would have to be
amended in order to carry out the
biennial session idea. The next session
under the amendment would be held in
1908, whereas officers of State will be
elected this year, and unless there was
a session in 1907 they could not be in
stalled. There are provisions referring
to filling vacancies by the Governor and
he can so fill them only for one year,
while the term might be for two years.
An annual tax is proposed, and that
cannot be continued under the biennial
The committee says there are at least
four constitutional provisions which
would have to be adopted before bien
nial sessions could be inaugurated with
out conflict with other provisions. The
committee declares, therefore, that the
whole matter will have to be re-sub
mitted, and for that purpose the com
mittee w?l submit the necessary bill.
No action was taken on the report, but
it will be printed and disposed of later.

WORK WEAKENS THE KIDNEYS.
Dean's Kidney Pills Have Done Great
Service for People Who Work
Most Laurens people work every day
in some strained, unnatural position
bending constantly over a desk?riding
on jolting waKons or cars?doing labori
ous housework; lifting, reaching or pull
ing, 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 hehind in their work of
filtering the poisons from the blood.
Doan's Kidney Pills cure sick kidneys,
put new strength in bad backs. Lau
rens cures prove it.
J. H. Odell, of Factory Hill, Hill
Mill hand, says: "I have been suffer
ing 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 mo no rest
day or night. I could not stand straight
and if I sat for a bit and attempted to
arise I had to catch hold of something
to pull myself up. The secietions from
the kidneys were very red, full of sedi
ment and got like a jelly after they
stood for a while. 1 could not retain
them any length of time and had to
rise often at night. I tried several
highly recommended remedies and used
liniments, but nothing did me any good
until I got a box of Doan's Kidney
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 natural and I do
not have to get up at nights as I used
to, while the backache has all left me."
