A Narrow Escape.
G. W. Floyd, a merchant of Plunk,

ago, when he ran a jimson burr into his

to amputate it, but I would not con
sent. I bought a box of Bucklen's Ar
nica Salve, and that cured the danger

Rich Gold Mine Near Fountain Inn.
Greenville, October 31.?The richest
gold mine in the State, and probably
in the South, has been discovered near
Fountain Inn. Dr. George S. Lee, gold
geologist and mineralogist, has an
nounced that the nuggets are pure
gold that were found on the favored
spot. Dr. Lee, who has been working
on the project for some time past, was
in Greenville tonight, and he gave it
out that signs of the yellow metal had
been discovered in all parts of a tract
that embraced two hundred acres. The
land is owned by two parties whose
names are held back tor the present.
A stock company will be organized
at once, and the mining of the precious
ore will begin. The geologist values
the two hundred acres at not less than
Withstood Other Treatment, but Quickly
Cured by Chamberlain's Cough
"Last winter I caught a very severe
cold which lingered for weeks," says
J. Urquhart, of Zephyr, Ontario. "My
cough was very dry and harsh. The
local dealer recommended Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy and guaranteed
it, so I gave it a trial. One small bot
tle of it cured me. I believe Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy to be the best I
have ever used. " This remedy is for

Making a Notable Convert.
To be candid, we confess that there
is no keener satisfaction to be enjoyed
than that of making converts. There
fore we "point with pride" to the Den
ver interview of the distinguished Sena
tor Tillman. The Senator, in his rough,
strong way, says exactly what the
News and Courier has been saying for
weeks and months, and we rejoice and
congratulate the State and the country
that we have, after these long years,
got him in tow. The Senator's opinion
about Mr. Cortelyou's ever ready assist
ance for "Wall street gamblers" is an
echo of the News and Courier; his
praise of Stuy vesant Fish is a lesson he
must have learned from these columns;
his delicately worded suspicion that the
President desires a third term partakes
of ours, and the whole tenor of the
great statesman's views of current
events is a condensation of editorial ar
ticles of the News and Courier which
have appeared during the year.
In this illustration lies the true mean
ing of "government by newspaper."
Tho newspaper hammers and diivcs
ideas until an open-minded statesman
absorbs them and, unconsciously, be
gins to give them voice in the full be
lief that they are his own. For years
we have toiled assiduously to train
Senator Tillman to think along straight,
plain lines of i>ohcy, and it is a pleas
ure to observe these signs that his
mind has at last been moulded by us in
such ? a manner that the chances are
that his mistakes, as years ripen, will
grow beautifully less.
But, although Senator Tillman is an
apt scholar, wo aro not yet willing to
assume responsibility for all that he
Some day the Senator will agree
with us about the dispensary law.

A Good Liniment.
When you need a good, roliable lini
ment try Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It
has no superior for sprnins and swell
ings. A piece of flannel slightly damp
ened with Pain Balm is superior to a
plaster for lame back or pains in the
sido or chest. It also relieves rheu
matic pains and makes sleep and rest

DIDNT RECOONIZF. HIM.
Mr. Farley Received Photograph of His
Brother, Living in Mexico.
It does not often happen that a man
does not know hia brother, but that is
what happened in Spartanbug Tuesday.
L. E. Farlej received by mail a pho
tograph of a big, fine-looking man,
wearing a Mexican hat. The picture
resembled a likeness of a colonel in the
United States army, on duty on
the western plains. Mr. Farley won
dered whose picture he had received.
He looked and looked, and wondered
where ho had seen the original. Finally
he showed the photograph to several of
his friends at the court house, and they
helped him solve the puzzle, tolling him
it was his brother, Henry S. Farley,
who was known in Spartanburg about
20 years ago.
Henry S. Farley is a graduate of
West Point. For a number of years he
taught school in New York State, but
is now engaged in mining in Mexico.
Mr. Farley has not seen his brother in
15 years. He, of course, was delighted
to get the photograph. Mr. Farley has
been in the gold mining business in
Mexico for many years, and is comfort
ably well off.?Spartanburg Journal.
