WARRANT ISSUED FOR TEACHER.
Sparinnburg Man Accuses Young Lady
Teacher of Assault and Battery.
Spartanburg, April 2.-W. R. Zim
merman, of Duncan, came to Spartan
burg today and swore out a warrant
against Martha Hellam3, principal of
the public school at Duncan, charging
her with assault and battery in whip
ping his young son. Mr. Zimmerman
alleges in the warrant that the whip
ping occurred after school had been
dismissed and the child was not under
the control of the teacher.
The school was dismissed yesterday
afternoon, Mr. Zimmerman states, and
all the children were taken on a fishing
trip to Tyger river except his two sons,
who were sent home. Mr. Zimmerman
rigged up lines and sent the boys to
the river to fish. They went to Moor's
Spring, where the school children were
having a jolly time, and Mr. Zimmer
man declares his youngest son was
seized by Miss Hollams and given a
thrashing. Miss Ilellam's side of the
affair will not be known until the inves
Several weeks ago an effort was
made to oust the young lady by sevearl
patrons, but she won in the fight, the
trustees refusing to prefer charges
against her. She is said to be a young
woman with plenty of pluck.
MISS HELLAM'S FRIENDS INDIGNANT.
Spartanburg, April 3.? The friends of
Miss Martha Hellams are mortified and
indignant that W. R. Zimmerman, a
patron of her school, swore out a war
rant for her arrest, charging her with
whipping one of his sons. The friends
of the young lady are standing by her.
She is a woman of excellent character,
high ideals and a splendid teacher. She
.has taught in several schools in the
county, and her work has given entire
satisfaction. It is said that Miss Hel
iums has been harrassed considerably
by certain patrons of her school, and
that many indignities have been heaped
upon her. They claim that she will be
fully vindicated.- News and Courier.
"One Touch of Nature Makes the Whole
When a rooster finds a big fat worm
he calls all the hens in the farm .yard
to come and share it. A similar trait
of human nature is to be observed
when a man discovers something ex
ceptionally good; he wants all his
friends and neighbors to share the
benefits of his discovery. This is the
touch of nature that makes the whole
world kin. This explains why people
who have been cured by Chamber
Iain's Cough Remedy write letters to
the manufacturers for publication
.that others similarly ailing may also
vise ? and obtain relief. Behind every
one of these letters is a warm-hearted
wish of Uie writer to be of use to some
one else. This remedy is for sale by

My friend, Capt. A. B. Byrd, the
other day related the following incident
One Jim Ford had a legacy due him
from his father's estate, and the estate
had to be settled in the Ordinary's
office before he could get his money.
Final notice of settlement was pub
lished in the county paper and when
the day arrived Jim came up to town
and employed a lawyer to see that
everything was done exactly right.
This lawyer was a noted attorney bo
fore the war, named Tol Hendrix. He
and Tol marched around to Judge Wm.
Watts' office to settle up the estate.
Jim, as a prudent man, carried along a
little cash ?about thirty dollars?to
pay the oilice and lawyer fees. They
went into the settlement and soon had
everything ready for distribution.
Ford paid Judge Watts his costs, and
tlyjy rose to go. But before leaving
the oilice Ford said to 'Squire Hendrix:
"How much do I owe you for making
this settlement ?"
"Well, Jim, the work has not been
much, but the responsibility upon me as
an attorney of having everything accu
rate in this settlement is considerable.
So I will make my fee three hundred
Jim said to 'Squire Watts: "Please
hand me a chair, I want to sit down.
I feel sorter shaky in the knees."
So this big fall in the cotton market
has made many of our Union friends

THE POSBY RUCK. ; ;
BY W. D. 8. !|
Reedy river makes a sudden bend
half a mile above the bridge and the
water fiowa to east side under that rock,
which makes the channel deep on this
side. The approach from the land is
nearly level with the top of the rock,
the rock hangs over some ten feet
water side. Frank Posey lived
by and his wife jumped into the
nd drowned herself. Ever since
this occurrence the rock has been called
the "Posey rock."
Frank Posey married the daughter of
John C. Calhoun, an old whig soldier of
the Revolution, who resided on South
Rabun creek. Mrs. Posey left two
daughters, who often visited my elder
sisters. One of these girls married
little Tom Bonner and they moved to
W?cox county, Alabama.
While on this subject I will tell some
more fatalities of Reedy river. At the
mouth of the branch some fifty feet
above the bridge Mr. Craven, an Eng
lishman, and a hatter by trade, walked
into the river one night and drowned
himself. Years after this a young man
by the name of Anderson Riley was
swimming in this hole. An old man
standing on the river hank unthought
edly called out to him, "Look out, An
derson, you are. swimming right over
the place where Craven was drowned!"
Quick a3 lightning he sank and before
assistance reached him he was dead.
In those days this bend of the river
had 26 and 30 feet watery now you can
wade across it.
At the ford below the mill Thomas
Moore was returning home late one
evening and in wading over he fell and
was found next morning drowned.
One of these men had a jug of whis
key tied with a rope around his neck
and when he fell the weight of the jug
kept his head under the water until he
was drowned. Young man, if you
must have a jug get you a Taylor jug,
one with no bottom.

Hon. Jos. A. McCoIlough in Laurens.
Hon. Jos. A. McCullough, of Green
ville, and one of the recently appointed
receivers of the defunct State dispen
sary, was in Laurens a few minutes
Thursday, enroute to Greenwood, where
he attended the funeral of Mi'. W. G.
In the few minutes at his disposal
Mr. McCullough talked quite freely
with THE Advertiser reporter con
cerning the dispensary affairs and the
pending litigation. He does not seem
much perturbed by the numerous and
harsh criticisms directed against him
by the newspapers of the State, but
seems to be convinced that he is pursu
ing a correct and justifiable policy
which will be for the State's interest.
Regarding the enormous bond fixed
by Judge Pritchard for the commission,
in order to elfect the supersedeas pro
ceedings, Mr. McCullough seemed con
fused by the account as published in
Thursday's Columbia State. From this
article he could not learn what the at
torneys for the commission purposed
"Anyhow," said Mr. McCullough, "I
am sincerely desirous that the proceed
ings shall be as speedy and as amicable
as possible. The matter must be car
ried to the United States Supreme
Court in some form, and I hope it can
be done without anyone being ruled in
contempt. I hope the supersedeas bond
can be arranged.
"There has been no recent meeting
of the three receivers," he continued,
"and there is no likelihood of a meet
ing soon. We await instructions from
Mr. McCullough explained that the
supersedeas bond meant an order stay
ing all proceedings as they now stand
and carrying the matter direct to the
U. S. Supreme Court, for its decision.

Our National Danger.
Time to Cry a Halt Before Complete
There are thousands, both men and
women, who do not take time to eat
properly. They rush through life, and
as a result we have an age of indiges
tion, nervousness, irritability, sleepless
nights, and morose disposition. Our
national danger is stomach weakness,
due to the strenuous life.
With the discovery of Mi-o-na tab
lets, which strengthen the walls of the
stomach and stimulate secretion of the
digestive juices, there is no longer any
excuse for indigestion.
Sick headaches, palpitation, yellow
skin and coated tongue are a few of
the many distressing results of indiges
tion that Mi-o-na never fails to cure.
Laurens Drug Co. sell Mi-o-na in 50
cent boxes, and guarantee to refund

CATARRH IS CURABLE
Successful Experiments in Abating and
Curing this Disease.
Catarrh is an entirely unnecessary
disease and should not be tolerated for
a single day now that Hyomei is so gen
erally known and has made so many
cures in Laurens and other towns.
Modern science has disproved the old
theory that catarrh was a blood disease.
It is a germ trouble, and the remedy is
Hyomei, which medicates the air you
breathe, killing all catarrhal germs.
As^there is life and health in the air
of th'e pine forests, filled with fragrant
and healing balsams, so there is life
and health in breathing- Hyomei.
