The several Townships and sub-divis
ions are notified to meet on Saturday,
March 10th, at 3 o'clock p. m., and
elected delegates to attend the meeting
of the County Association which is
hereby called to meet on Saturday, the
It \a of the greatest importance that
there be a full representation at this
meeting. Lot every township send its
quota, whether their organization has
been perfected or not. It is essential
to the best interests of this country
that this organization be kept in thor
ough working order. The question of
acreage, of cotton-holding, and of ware
house building will come up at this
meeting. There are a great many peo
ple who are convinced that farmers
should build and own a warehouse.
Then, there is the burning question of
how much cotton shall be planted in
1906. Upon this and kindred questions
must depend the fate of our country.
Turn out farmers, ami let us take coun
sel on these things.

New Harmony and Ebenezer Schools.
Last week County Superintendent of
Education R. W. Nash visited New
Harmony and Ebenezer schools, located
in Youngs township. New Harmony is
taught by Miss Carrie Lou Dorroh, as
sisted by Miss Pallie McKitrick of
Greenville county, while Miss Myrtle
Blankenship presides over Ebenezer.
Both are fine schools located in excep
tionally fine communities.

You Never Know When This Information
May Prove of Infinite Value.
M. P. Leopard, employed at the New
berry Cotton Mills, Newberry, S. C,
says: "I have used Doan's Ointment
and cannot say too much in its favor. I
had itching hemorrhoids for years and
also a breaking out on my legs, and It
almost set my crazy. I could not find
anything to help it. I have seen the
time when I have gotten out of bed and
scratched until my legs were one mass
of blood and I felt as though I could
have taken a knife and scraped the
skin off, but it only made it worse. The
doctor gave me some salve and 3 bought
two or three different ointments and
put them on, but nothing did any good.
Finally I procured a box of Doan's
Ointment. I do not think I had it on
ten minutes before I felt relief. A con
tinuation of the applications as directed
entirely stopped all my misery and no
one knows what a relief it has been. I
can take off my clothes now and sleep
in peace. You can bet your last dollar
on one thing: I can recommend Doan's
Ointment first, last and all the time."

team. Just beyond Mr. Weather's the
mules attached to the wagon became
frightened and were on a wild run when
they crashed into Mr. Saxon's buggy,
almost demolishing the vehicle and
throwing Mr. Saxon violently into the
road. He managed to hold on to the
lines, but was dragged a considerable
distance by the horses in an effort
to join in the race.
Luckily for Mr. Saxon ho got off with
only a few slight bruises about the
knees and shoulders. The wagon team
was soon stopped without doing further
