At the family residence of Mr. James
Y. Pitts, Brewerton, on the 29th ult.,
at <5 a. m., occurred the marriage of
his daughter, Miss Ernestine, to Mr.
Asa S. J. McKissick, of Macon, Ga.
The wedding was a very pretty one,
and it was a very happy party of friends
that assembled in the old mansion
house to see the loved daughter of a
highly respected and well-known
family wed the man of her choice.
The ceremony was performed by Rev.
James M. Dallas, of the Presbyterian
church, and was beautiful and impress
The bride was becomingly dressed in
a travelling suit of brown cloth, with
hat to match, and she looked very
handsome and happy. The yjung peo
ple received the hearty congratulations
of their many relatives and friends for
their future welfare and happiness.
Mr. and Mrs. McKissick left Don
ald's Wednesday morning for Florida,
where they will spend their honey moon.
Their future home will be in Macon,
Many Sleepless Nights, Owing to a Per
sistent Cough. Relief Found at Last.
"For several winters past my wife
has been troubled with a most persist
ent and disagreeable cough, which in
variably extended over a period of sev
eral weeks and caused her many sleep
less nights," writes Will J. Hayner,
editor of The Bulletin, Hurley, Colo.
"Various remedies were tried each
year, with no beneficial results. In
November last the cough again put in
an appearance and my wife, acting on
the suggestion of a friend, purchased a
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
The result was indeed marvelous. Af
ter three doses the cough entirely dis
appeared, and has not manifested itself

Postmaster Calls Attention to Practice
of Placing Coins in Boxes.
Acting under instructions from the
Postoffice Department at Washington,
the Laurens postmaster "wishes the fol
lowing notice given publicity:
Postmaster George S. McCravy de
sires to call attention to the practice of
some patrons of rural delivery of plac
ing loose coins in their boxes each time
they desire to dispatch letters, instead
of supplying themselves with postage
in advance of their needs.
This practice imposes undue hard
ship on rural carriers in removing loose
coins from boxes, and delays them on
the service of their routes. ?
The postmaster therefore urgently
requests that patrons of rural delivery
provide themselves and keep on hand
? supply of stamps consistent with and
in advance of their needs.
It is also very desirable that rural
patrons place in their mail boxes small
detachable cups of wood or tin in which
to place coins, when necessary, in pur
chasing supplies of stamps.

A weak stomach means weak stom
ach nerves always. And this is also
true of the heart and kidnevs. It is a
pity that sick ones continue to drug
the stomach or stimulate the heart and
kidneys. The weak nerves, not the or
gans themselves, need this help. This
explains why Dr. Shoop's Restorative
has and is promptly helping so many
sick ones. It goes direct to the causes
of these diseases. Test this vital truth
