MIt, B. Y. MMJUOWN'S
VISIT TO BROTHER.
Laurons was honored Monday by a
visit from Mr. 13. Y. McQuovvn, of Clin
ton, who has just returned from a trip
to Bee bis brother, Mr. J. M. McQuown,
in Columbus, Miss. Tins was the first
time the brothers have met in twenty
two years, Mr. J. M. McQuown having
visited here then. Numbers of people
in Laurens county enjoy the friendship
of or acquaintance with Mr. McQuown,
especially the readers of The Adver
tiser, for many years ho being a regu
lar contributor to the columns of this
paper under the pen name of "Sloeum
Gilson." While in the city Monday he
talked very interestingly of bis trip to
Mississippi and the genuine pleasure o/
the visit to his brother.
"it was the greatest time of my
life," said he. "To say that I enjoyed
myself does not express it at all: it
wits simply grand and I was happy
every minute of my time. My brother
and 1 were both in the war, although
not in the same company or even the
same regiment, he enlisting in Company
K, 19th Mississippi, at Baldwin, while
1 was a member of Company P, Mtb
South Carolina. He moved to his pres
ent home just forty-two years ago and
engaged in the manufacture of wagons,
buggies, etc., in which business he has
made quite a success and is now well
fixed so far as this world's goods is con
cerned. Needless to say that he did all
a man could do to make me enjoy my
stay with him; he was a host royal."
Continuing the narration of his visit,
Mr. McQuown said that the greatest
day of his life was Thursday, the 13th
of August, when he witnessed a sham
battle between parts of the United
States troops, then in camp near the
city of Columbus. "Hut," said he,
"the battle wa^ not the greatest feat
ure of the day; it was the banquet ten
dered the old Confederate soldiers at 2
o'clock after the battle was over. There
were ninety-four of us old soldiers there
and 1 have never in my life sat down to
such a spread as was ours that day;
but the best of all was that wc were
served by the officors of the United
Stales army. They waited on us. I
shall never forget that day so long as I
Mr. McQuown says that the crops out
in Mississippi are not very promising,
the corn being quite poor and the cot
ton suffering from the extremely wet
weather. The writer was much inter
ested in the conversation with Mr
McQuown oven when it turned to poli
tics and the plain-spoken, honest old
veteran differed widely with him on
some questions and even censured him
for some of his views. Hut the differ
ence of opinion did not prevent them
becoming friends and will not likely de
stroy the pleasant acquaintance newly
made. ?Mr. McQuown is a reader and a
strong friend of The Advertiser; be
did not take his departure boforospeak
ing in glowing terms of Col. W. W.
Ball, now of Charleston.
Thinks it Saved Iiis Life.
Lester M. Nelson, of Naples, Maine,
say ; in a recent letter: "I have used Dr.
King's New Discovery many years for
coughs and colds and I think it saved
my life. I have found it a reliable rem
edy for throat and lung complaints and
would no more be without a bottle than
I would bo without food." For nearly
forty years New Discovery has stood at
the head of throat and lung remedies.
As a preventive of pneumonia and
healer of weak lungs it has no equal.
