HEYWARD RESIGNS OFFICIAL DUTIES
To Devote His Time to His Campaign for
the U. S. Senate.
Ex-Gov. D. C. Heyward has resigned
the presidency of the Standard Ware
house Company. The resignation was
^accepted at a meeting of the board of
directors yesterday. The business of
this enterprise has grown so much, and
there are so many details to be looked
after, that Gov. Heyward considered
that, in justice to the directors, he
should resign, as he has entered into
the campaign for a seat in the United
States Senate. Gov. Heyward will
continue as president of the Columbia
Savings Bank and Trust Company, for
that requires now very little of his
time, being solely a savings institu
Gov. Hey ward has been president of
the warehouse company since its or
ganization. There are several branches
?at Columbia, Newberry, Greenwood,
Anderson, Orangeburg and elsewhere.
It is not known who will succeed Gov.
Heyward. A committee was appointed
to take this matter in charge and to re
port at a subsequent meeting.
Gov. Hey ward said yesterday:
"To many of my friends who liad
urged me to become a candidate for the
Senatelast fall I had said I was devot
ing myself to business and was out of
politics and could not see my way clear
to become a candidate for the Senate
without sacrificing my business inter
ests. But the death of Senator Lati
mer changed the political situation and
I then decided to enter the race. As I
expect to devote myself very largely
to the campaign from now on I felt it
only just to the warehouse company to
give up the presidency of that con
Gov. Hey ward has already started on
his campaign. He has visited many
party of the State, and is receiving en
couragement everywhere. He realizes
that he has for opponents men who are
themselves politically strong, but he
feels all the more encouraged for that
reason, because he is practically the
last to announce himself.? State.

A VISION COMES TRUE.
Mother Dreams That Her Son is Struck
and Killed by a Car.
New York, April 2. Separated from
her son, Wm. G. Cooper, of 184 Clare
mont avenue, by nearly 100 miles, Mrs.
Ella Cooper, of Philadelphia, on Sun
day night dreamed she saw him killed
by a Sixth avenue elevated train. So
vivid was the mother's dream that she
hurried to this city.
Her route across the town from the
Pennsylvania Railroad ferry lay through
West Twenty-third street. By a re
markable coincidence she reached Sev
enth avenue a few seconds after her
son had been struck and seriously in
jured by an east-bound trolley car.
From the window of the car in which
she was seated she recognized the face
of the man lying on the ground Sur
rounded by a large crowd.
She jumped from the car and rushed
to his side. When he regained con
sciousness his mother's face was the
first thing that met his gaze. Believ
ing her to be in Philadelphia, he could
not account for her presence.
In his dazed condition the doctors
who responded with the ambulance
from the New York hospital thought it
best not to tell him of the psychic phe
nomenon which had brought her to his
Mrs. Cooper bore up bravely during
the strange reunion, but when the am
bulance drove away she fainted. How
badly Cooper is injured it will be im
possible to tell for several days.

When Smith Came Home.
"When Smith Came Home," which |
is to be presented at the Opera House
in Laurens on Friday, April 17, proba
bly has more funny characters in it
than any farce ever written. There is
the innocent but excitable man who has
been entrapped into becoming one of a
band of anarchists and who labors un
der the delusion that eve/yone is an
hk i>t from them bent on accomplishing
his death. Then there is the man who
writes tracts and never takes anything
alcoholic, but who is discovered in' a
most amusing state of intoxication.
There is an amateur detective who
pines to outrival Sherlock Holmes and
who goes about tracing unknown crimes
to the doors of unsuspecting persons.
Then there is the butler and his wife
and a pretty little trained nurse who
get themselves and everyone else in
volved in the most extraordinary pre
dicament, not to mention several minor
characters who add their share to the
fun making. It is a real farce with
real laughter and real enjoyment.
This company will be here by a spe
cial return engagement, having played
in Laurens in February. Everyone
who saw the company then was highly
pleased and an overflowing house will
greet them next Friday night.
The Harn well Sentinel has thin to say:
"The 'When Smith Came Home Com
pany' played here on Monday and Tues
day nights to good audiences and pleased
all who went out to hear them. This is
a good company and whenever they
come back to Bamwell they are sure of
a hearty welcome and a full house."

I coffee imitation ever yet produced. This
clever coffee substitute was recently

coffee is made from pure toasted cereals

fool an expert who might drink it for
coffee. No twenty to thirty minutes'
tedious boiling. "Made in a minute"

Notice Cotton (Jrowers.
To Cotton Growers of South Carolina:
The executive committee of the South
Carolina division of the Southern Cot
ton Association has requested me to is
sue an address in reference to the acre
age for 1908.
Whatever may be the motives that
prompt it, it is a fact, nevertheless,
that the cotton mills in America are
running on short time?some limiting
their hours per day, and others run
ning only certain days in the week. |
The effect of this will be to curtail the
consumption of raw cotton.
It is unquestionably true that we
have made a small crop?in fact so
small that if the mills were running on
full time it would hardly prove ade
quate to the demand. It is earnestly
desired by the manufacturing interests
to so curtail the use of raw cotton that
they will have on hand a surplus at
the time the new crop comes in.
If the acreage in cotton is not re
, duced we will be confronted, perhaps,
by a surplus of the old crop and a large
acreage staring us in the face. With
these conditions the price of cotton
I would be put below the cost of produc
! The effect upon every branch of in
dustry and the people throughout the
. South would be pitiable indeed if we
are again to have low price cotton.
The situation is entirely in the hands
of the farmer, and I earnestly plead
? that they raise an abundance of home
supplies, and this in itself will neces
' sarily reduce the cotton acreage. I can
assure the farmers of South Carolina
i that throughout the Southern States
an earnest appeal is being made to the
farmers to adopt the course which I
recommend to you. I deem it my duty
to sound this note of warning in ample
time to forestall a large crop for 1908.
If we can make our supplies at home,
our debts will be small and will not
need much cotton to pay them. Let
every farmer profit by the experience
of the past and make enough at home
to enable him to be master of the situ
ation. One course offers continued
prosperity; the other financial embar
rassment, inabilitv to meet your obli
gation and the thousands of other
evils that exist in the South when cot
ton is cheap. Hold your spots and plant
provisions. E. D. SMITH.

EAT WHAT YOU WANT
Science Has Now Found the True Way
to Cure Indigestion.
The first thing to do in the case of in
digestion or stomach weakness is to j
strengthen the muscular walls of the
stomach and intestines so that they will
care for the food that is eaten. In no
other way can this be done as well as
by taking a Mi-o-na tablet before each
meal. This restores strength to the
stomach muscles and stimulates the
pouring out of gastric juices, so that
the food digests readily and its nourish
ment is retained in the system to build
up energy and vitality.
Use Mi-o-na and you will have no
more sick headache, heartburn, bad
taste in the mouth, coated tongue* spots
before tho eyes, sleeplessness and the
many other symptoms that are the di
rect result of indigestion.
Laurens Drug Co. gives with every
60-cent box of Mi-o-na a guarantee to
refund the money unless the romedy

That languid, lifeless feeling that
comes with spring and early summer
can be quickly changed to a feeling of
buoyancy ana energy by the judicious
use of Dr. Shoop's Restorative. The
Restorative is a genuine tonic to tired,
run-down nerves, and but a few doses
is needed to satisfy the usor that Dr.
Shoop's Restorative is actually reach
ing that tired spot. The indoor life of
winter nearly always leads to sluggish
j bowels and to sluggish circulation in
general. The customary lack of exer
cise and outdoor air ties up the liver,
stagnates the kidneys, and ofttimes
weakens the heart's action. Use Dr.
Shoop's Restorative a few weeks and
all will be changed. A few days' test
will tell you that you arc using the right
remedy. You will easily and surely note
the change from day to dav. Sold by
