Gov. Rlease has been Invited to the
oration of the day at the Feasterville
Social Club picnic. Tho newspaper
account of tho Invitation says tha\
"refreshments will he served by the
clnb, but those attending will be ex
pected to bring dinner." If those who
are to attend nro expected to bring
dinner, what kind of "refreshments"
is the social club expeclod to furnish?
The thirty two page Trade and In
dustrial edition of the Walterboro
Press and Standard is an achievement
?which the editor of the paper and the
'people of Colleton county might well
feel proud of. Not only could lOditor
Smonk justly lay claim to the most
"pictorial edition" of a newspaper
ever published In South Carolina, but
he could also lay claim to have print
ed more original reading matter than
any other paper in South Carolina,
perhaps. Doubt less this edition of the
Press and Standard will be put away
and jealously guarded by the people
of Colleton county.

AT LOGGERHEADS AGAIN.
Disregarding entirely the quostlon
?whether tho Greenville, Spartanburg
and Anderson Railroad corporation
has, ever had or ever will have any
intention of entering Laurens. it
seems to us that the City Council had
absolntely no grounds for turning
down tho petition of the free holders
as It did last Wednesday when they
asked that an election be ordered to
decide whether $17,500 In bonds should
be voted to aid In procuring that road.
In disregarding the petition of a ma
jority of the free holders of the city,
the Council virtually declared that
free holders were not competent to be
entniBted with tho disposition of their
own property. This action would
leave anyone to believe that Council
considered that the citizens of the
town did not have enough business
ability to manage their own affairs
or decide for themselves what they
?want: .Council really says "Citizens
of Laurens, you do not know what
yon are asking for; this railroad is
trying to, mako a catspaw of you and
vie are the only ones that see the
joke. Why, you have no business
?with this ejoctlon and we will not give
it to you."
But, has Council any right to refuse
this election? The act as passed by
tke legislature declares that upon the
Slalom of a Buftlclont number of free
Bfers, the Cfcy Council shall ho em
vqwftred sad directed to order the olec
th#p as to whetfa?r the bonds shall be
fcaaied or not. .It seems to us that
'isn th* law Volares that Council

Have You Tried It?
There is a bottle of Cardui waiting for you at the
drug store. Have you tried it?
If not, we urge you to do so, before your roubles
have obtained such a hold on you, that nothing will drive
them out . . . .
Even now, it may be nearly too late. But try it any
how. If anything can help you, Cardui will. It has helped
in thousands of cases, where other medicines had been
tried in vain. Why should it not do the same for you?
The Woman's Tonic
"My daughter, Octava, would have been in her grave
today, had it not been for that fine medicine, Cardui,"
writes Mrs. Laura Lawrence, of Drennon Springs, Ky.
"Nothing 1 tried helped my daughter, until she had
taken Cardui. I had sent for the doctor, when I thought
of your medicine and got a $1 bottle. When she had
taken four doses she became all right. I often recommend
Cardui to my friends." '
Your druggist sells Cardui with full instructions for use
on the bottle.
