FACTS ABOUT THE
GREAT MAJESTIC RANGE.
I'M ? ? II IIIIIIIIWMIIIilll IUI I ? IIIIII?? Ill'llMI I IWIIIIMII IBM? I? III
It is the only range in the world made of Malleable and
I Charcoal Iron.
It has, beyond any question of a doubt, the largest and
It uses about half the fuel used on other ranges, and
(does better work by far.
The Majestic All Copper Nickeled Reservoir heats the
water quicker and hotter than any other. It is the only
reservoir with a removable frame.
The Charcoal iron Body of the Great Majestic Range
lasts three times as long as a steel body.
Being made of non-breakable material, there is practi
cally no expense for repairing the Majestic.
As for baking, it is perfection, not only for a few months,
but for all times to come.
A GREAT MAJESTIC RANGE lasts three times as long
as a cheap range, but it don't cost three times as much.
PROOF ?We don't ask you to take our word for any of the
above statements, but if you will call at our store, a man from
the factory, where Majestic ranges are made, will prove to your
satisfaction, that these are absolute facts, and will show you many
more reasons why the Great Majestic Range is absolutely the best
that money can buy.

Funeral Exercises Were Held nt Rabun
Creek Church Last Wednesday.
The funeral and burial services of
Mr. L. Rutherford Roper, whose death
occurred in this city last Tuesday, took
place on the following day at noon at
Rabun Creek Church. Hilly five hun
dred people were present, a large num
ber going from the city.
The Church service was conducted
by Rev. E. C. Watson, pastor. In his
remarks he referred very feelingly to
the friendship that existed between
himself and the deceased, paying a
beautiful tribute to him as a true friend,
officer and soldier.
At the conclusion of this service the
casket was borne to the cemetery
where the Woodmen of the World took
charge, conducting the burial according
to the ritual of that Order in a very
impressive manner, with Messrs. C. A.
Power, R. W. Nash and .I. VV. Kellett,
officiating. The active pall bearers
were Chief W. S. Hagwell, M. II.
Stone, .1. T. Langston, W. II. Jernigan,
and Henry Dodson of the Laurens po
lice force, and Chief S. C. Reid of
Clinton. The honorary pall bearers
were seven members of the Traynhnm
Guards, J. Arthur Taylor, Marion Wil
kes, Erskine T. Babb, J. Cope Hender
son, Jeff Armstrong, f). R. Simpson
and Luther Bragg.
He Was Highly Esteemed.
Throughout the illness of the late
Mr. L. Rutherford Roper anxious In
quiries were made daily as to his con
dition and when his death was announc
ed there was a general expression of
sorrow and regret. He had the esteem
and regard of everybody and was looked
upon as one of the best officers the
city has had in a number of years. He
was next in authority to Cheif Bagwell
an/l this officer has expressed profound
and sincere regret in the less of such a
valuable man. In fact all the men on
the force feel the loss keenly and his
memory will ever be rcverrcd by them.
And the same may be said of Mayor
Babb and each of the aldermen in whose
confidence and esteem the deceased
held a high place.

strength, do as Mrs. N. F. Rowan, Mc
Donough, Ga., did, She says: "Three
bottles of Electric Bitters cured me of
chronic liver and stomach trouble, com
