attack upon the Incumbent, repeating
his former charges ami denying that

be had said that be was paid this
amount out of the tax-payers' pock

Mr. Evans declared that in a certain

In Bad Fix
"I had a mishap at the age of 41, which left me in bad
fix," writes Mrs. Georgia Usher, of Conyers, Ga.
"I was unconscious for three days, and after that I
would have fainting spells, dizziness, nervousness, sick
headache, heart palpitation and many strange feelings.
"I suffered greatly with ailments due to the change of
life and had 3 doctors, but they did no good, so I concluded
to try^ Cardui.
'Since taking Cardui, I am so much better and can do
all my housework."
The Woman's Tonic
Do not allow yourself to get into a bad fix. You might
get in so bad you would find it hard to get out.
Better take Cardui while there is time, while you are
still in moderately good health, just to conserve your strength
and keep you in tip top condition.
In this way your troubles, whatever they are, will grad
ually grow smaller instead of larger?you will be on the
up-grade instead of the down- and by and bye you will
arrive at the north pole of perfect health.

years." He stated that Wade Hamp
ton had voted for him for the United
States Senate in 1896, and had de
clared that all honest men should vote
for Duncan. The people cheered Dun
can at many points in his speech, and
there was loud applause at if. ion.
Mr. l'eatherstone had spoken twice
in Chester, once during the campaign
m' 1808 and again two years ago. when
ihe county voted out liquor, he had
no apologies to make for discussing
the issue today, which he did in ills
usual forceful manner. In refering
to State-wide prohibition, Mr. I'eather
stone said: "I want Charleston and
Itlchlnild to take their dose along with
the rest Of thom."
In referring to the lax question, the
speaker stated his belief that the in
crease in values from year to year
should provide for the increased costs
of the government; that no increase
of levy should be necessary.
Mr. Hyatt again stated that he was
the "only thoroughbred" prohibition
ist in the race. He made love to the
farmers in fine style and told them
how he had struggled from those days
of poverty on the farm, when, to the
obtain an education, he had studied
by the light of pinowood knots after
a day of toil, how he was trying to
help every farmer in the Stale to rock
ing chair existence, lie warned the
people against the tendency toward
extravagance, which pervaded not on
ly Individual but public life, in the
affairs of government.
He promises, if elected to the gov
ernorship, to inspect all the offices,
and all Slate officers and see that bus

Hyatt was well received.

and had done his share of work in be
half of the dear fanners, lie wants
to see the growth of the educational
facilities of lb'1 Stale, the continu
ance of prosperity, and the better
ment of tax conditions. He was cheer
ed when he announced his doctrine
of local option as to the liquor ques
tion. Mr. Mc l.eod spoke fluently to
day, diiving home his arguments in
Capl. .lohn (1. Itlchnrds said he was
not going to insult the Intelligence of
the people of South Carolina by devot
ing nil his time to discussing whiskey,
the people are tired of it. Ho was very
much amused at Hyatt's claims as a
farmer. "Yes." said Mr. Richards.
"Ho rides to ids farm every morning
In an elevator to the fourth or fifth
story of the skyscraper, in Columbia."
The speaker said there were five law
yers in the race, one insurance man.
and one farmer, the last being himself.
Ho hooted at Hyatt's Claim on raising
the price of cotton, declaring the.
Farmers' Union and the Cotton As
sociation did it. ('apt. Richards today'
withdrew his batteries from toward
Fentherstono and turned them on

more than do any of the other candi
dates. Tom lung the same themes, be
nevertheless serves up his arguments
in varying styles. He again attacked
those persons in South Carolina who)
were endeavoring to disfranchise
thousands of white voters by the pro
posed changes In the primary, declar
ing it to be an effort to get back to
the old way before the primary had
been Introduced, when a few men
ran the government. Mr. Biease
boasted that he "had never got beat
for any office in his home county;
more than some of bis opponents
could say." He predicts that the next
governor will bo a Nowborrlan, He
tombed on tho whiskey question, de
claring for local option, saying thai
"if the people of ehester want pro
hibition (and if they believe they have

today's news dispatches of raids on
illicit distilleries and the opinion ot
officors that prohibition was a farce
