last week. Found the crops very poor
with few exceptions and In many plac
es needing rain very badly. There
was a large crowd at Glenn's Hotel

buj little politics. Featherstono, Mc
Leod, and Blease were the only men

think that Featherstone is in lead and
will end up that way. At any rate
Featherstone is going to be In second

them when they're sick.
Robert P. Sexton. Laurens St.,
Laurens, S. ('.. says: "I do not hesitate
, to recommend Doan'S; Kidney Pills,
as 1 believe they are a valuable kid
ney remedy. Several i'ears ago I was
suffering from kidney; trouble and my
back was weak and lame. There was
also a constant, dull ache through
my loins. I could not sleep well and
upon arising In the morning, felt
tired and languid. I was also caused
annoyance by too frequent passages
of the kidney secretions. 1 tried num
erous remedies, but until I took Doan's
Kidney Pills, procured from the Pal
j metto Drug Co., I never received the
least relief. The first day after us
ing them I noticed a change for the
better and after I had taken the con
tents of tWO boxes, I was cured. Dur
ing the time that has since elapsed. I
have had no kidney trouble and I give
Doan'S Kidney Pills the credit."
