Heal prostrates the nerves, In the
summer one needs a tonic to off-set the
customary hot weather Nerve and
Strength depression. You will feel
better within 48 hours after beginning
to take such a remedy as Dr. Shoop's
Restorative. Its prompt action in re
storing the weakoncd nerves is surpris
ing. Of course, you won't get entirely
strong in a few days, but each day you
can actually feed the improvement.
That tired, lifeless, spiritless, feeling
will quickly depart when using the Re
storative. Dr. Shoop's Restorative
will sharpen a failing appetite; it aids
d' estion; it will strengthen the weak
ened K idncys and Heart by simply re
building tho wornout nerves that these
organs depend upon. Tost it a few

Rev. ('barbon Todd is expected to ar
rive in Laurens from ( hina for a few
months' visit to bis mother, Mrs. W
A. Clarke, and otnor relatives and
friends who will extend a happy wel

Todd, it is expected, will spend only a
few months la-re, returning to his for
eign post early in the fall.
THOMAS CARTER, SR. t
r VV. D. S. ?
**>?? ** **** ******** **** *****
The first cotton planter that I ever
saw was a barrel planter with a center
felly spaced with holes to let out the
seed in spots. It was the invention of
Mr. Carter. He went as far as Eu
faula, Ala., with a load of them trying
to introduce them to the big cotton
planters. Cotton seed was too cheap
there and there were too many negro
women and boys to put them in by hand
for farmers to buy planters, so the in
vention was a financial failure. He
was a first rate cutter of clothing and
did much work on this line. During
tbe Confederate war they made cloth
hats and stitched them on the sewing
machine. It was said that Mrs. Carter
made enough out of the manufacture
of hats to buy her a negro woman.
On one occasion 1 went up to his house
to see him on business and found him
down on the branch at his distillery.
The Confederate congress had forbidded
the making of whiskey out of corn.
Mr. (/arter had collected up all the per
simmons and elder berries and had his
beer tubs full of them fermenting.
"Let me show you what a nice lot of
berry mash I have in my hogsheads."
1 looked at it, rolled up my sleeve and
pushed my arm way down in the tub
and pulled out a handful of the mix
ture. It was as white as corn meal.
What is this, Mr. Carter, that looks so
white? He knowingly replied, "You
seethe more corn meal the better."
It reminded me of the French cook
making good soup out of the white (lint
rock as he had plenty of ingredients to
go with it. So with the whiskey if
you had plenty of corn meal to put on
the persimmons. He made one of the
completest little stills you ever saw out
of a live gallon lard can and a long tin
bugle. It would make one quart of
whiskey at a run. He was a man of in
domitable energy, always busy in his
plantation work shop or at his public
gin. Was also far above the common
average in intelligence.
After the war Mr. Carter went to
Augusta with cotton, caught smallpox
and returned home with it. He had
such a violent attack that it killed him.
Help for Those Who Have Stomach
After doctoring for about twelve
years for a bad stomach trouble, and
spending nearly five hundred dollars for
medicine and doctors' fees, I purchased
my wife one box of Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets, which did
her so much good that she continued to
use them and they have done her more
good than all of the medicine I bought
before. SAMUEL BOYKK, Folsom, Iowa.

Laurens Boys in the Navy.
In a letter to The State Zach Mclihee,
the Washington correspondent, makes
reference to two Laurens county boys
in the United States navy, Messrs
Samuel McOowan and Haskell Dial.
The paragraph is as follows:
"The highest ranking officer in the
pay corps from South Carolina is Pay
Inspector Samuel McOowan. He has
the rank of commander and is one of
the two commanders in the navy from
South Carolina, there being but one
man with a higher rank, Dr. Boyd, who
is a captain. MetJowan is now the pay
master of the fleet in the Pacific, a po
sition of great importance and respon
sibility. There are three assistant pay
masters with the rank of ensign. Em
mett Howard Tebeau, who is now
ashore settling accounts; John Francis
O'Mara, on the Iowa, and Haskell Dial,
on the fisheries steamer Albatross."
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy Would Have
Saved Him $100.00.
"In 1902 1 had a very severe attack
of diarrhoea," says K. N. Farrar, of
Cat Island, La. "For several weeks I
was unable to do anything. On March
IS, 11107, I had a similar attack ami took
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy which gave me prompt
relief. I consider it one of the best
medicines of its kind in the world and
had I used it in 1902 believe it would
have saved me a hundred doctor's bill."

Rev. T. C. Jacks' Last Letter.
At the request of the Hev. J. T.
Taylor, of Ware Shoals, the letter ap
pearing below is printed as suggested
by Mr. Taylor "in order that the chil
dren and others who were brought to
know Christ under the preaching of the
late Hev. Thos. C. Jacks may read his
last personal letter." The letter was
written to a 10-year-old girl at Enoree
who had been led to Christ while Mr.
Jacks was pastor of the Enorce Baptist
church, and "Clara" is another young
girl, friend of Miss Nora and member
of the same church.
The letter follows, dated at Mount
ville, Nov. 2!1, 1905:
"Dear Nora: Received your nice little
letter a short time ago; was glad to
hear from you. I quite often think of
you and (Mara, and I pray the Lord
that you both may always be true
Christian .. Am so glad that you and
Clara go to Sunday school and church.
I have been real sick since I saw you ?
was in be.I about live days, but am up
now, feeling pretty well. Pray for me
that I may continue to improve. I have
a lot of confidence in a child's prayers.
I have been praying for vou.
"If I am well enough 1 may come up
and spend part of Christmas at Enoree,
but do not snow whether I will be well
enough or not. Rye, bye for this time.
"Your devoted pastor,
"T. C. JACKS."
Pain will depart in exactly 20 minutes
if one of Dr. Shoop's Pink Pain Tablets
is taken. Pain anywhere. Remember!
Pain always means congestion, blood
pressure nothing else. Headache is
blood pressure; toothache is blood pres

Headache Tablets also called Pink
Pain Tablets quickly and safely coax
this blood pressure away from pain cen
ters. Painful periods with women get
instant relief. 20 Tablets 2?c. Sold by

Over Thirty'five Years.
In 1872 there was a great deal of di
arrhoea, dysentery and cholera infan
tum. It was at this time that Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy was first brought into use. It
proved more successful than any other
remedy or treatment, and has for thir
ty-five years maintained that record.
From a small beginning its sale and use
has extended to every part of the
United States and to many foreign
countries. Nine druggists out of ten
will recommend it when their opinion is
asked, although they have Other medi
cines tuat pay them a greater profit.
It can always be depended upon, even
in the most severe and dangerous cases.

The saloon is sometimes called a bar;
A bar to heaven, a door to hell;
Whoever named it, named it well.
A bar to manliness and wealth;
A door to want and broken health;
A bar to honor, pride and fame.
A door to sin and grief and shame.
A bar to hope, a bar to prayer,
A door to darkness and despair.
A bar to honored, useful life;
A door to brawling, senseless strife.
A bar to all that's true and brave,
A door to every drunkard's grave.
A bar to joys that home imparts,
A door to tears and aching hearts.
