Of all tin- nasty, muddy places to lie

thousand fed traversed Ms small area
during thai week and stirred lip tho

MOOD OF Till Hi ll BANQUETS.
Mr. fc'entherstono Compliments Now*
berrj Church's plans.
Mr. ('. C. Featherstone, of Laurens.
who was at a banquet given by the
men of Central Methodist church,
Nowberry, recently wrote an ar
ticle to tho Southern Christian Ad
vocate Impressing a vitally Important
truth connected. with church life as
bo terms it, that "the church would
he vastly bettor off if she emphas
ized more the social side of religion."
There can he 110 doubt of the truth
and correctness of tho position of Mr.
Keathetstone. ?Herald and News.
Mr Poatherstono says he attended
tho Methodist banquet In Nowberry
purtly out of curiosity to sec what
sort oi' thing a "church banquet" is.
lie says the banquet is usually asse
elated with liquor drinking. I won
der if Mr. Fonthorstone never attend
ed a Knight of Pythias banquet and
if he over saw "liquor drinking" there.
Ulli Mr. Fcatherstone then writes a
good and sensible article on the Im
portance of the church emphasising
the social side. "The Idler" in Herald

The rentiers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is he only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being
ii constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's Cata
rrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system, thereby de
stroying the foundation of the disease,
and giving the patient strength by
building up the constitution and as
sisting nature In doing its work. The
