The Underwood Supplement.
In this issue or The Advertiser is an
entire supplement, selling forth the
? lalnis of Oscar W .Underwood, of Ala
bamn, ns a candidate for the presiden
cy. The supplement will of course he
readily recognized as an ndvortlscmenl
and for that reason, especially, we de
sire that It be given a respectful read
ing. It Is rather unusual for a can
didate to take up so much space in a
newspaper. In fact, outside of the
mero announcement cards, they have
not gotton hold of the advertising game
and do not seem to appreciate Its ad
vantages. Of course, free advertising
all of them try to and some do obtain,
but Mr. Underwood goes at it in the
right way. He pays for it.

CANTATA IS POSTPONED.
King of Israel, Which uns to be Sung
Last Muht, will be Presented next
Tuesihi) Muht. Very, Attractive
The sacred cantata "King or Israel"
which was to have been rendered last
night by the Laurens Choral Society
at the First Methodist church, was
postponed, on account of a death
in the congregation of the church, un
til next Tuesday night. The cantata
is a beautiful one and will doubtless
draw an immense audience next Tues
day evening. When the practices first
began. H was thought by some that
It would hardly come up to the ex
pectations of a critical audience, but
since all of the parts and choruses
have been mastered, It Is said that
a distinct surprise Is in store for those
who doubted Its merits. Several more
pi actlces.wlll be held In order to keep
In form and to Improve In those parts
that needed finishing off. A silver
(and gold) offering will be taken up
for tho benefit of the Kings Daughters
and as their nuances have reached a
very low ebb on account of an un
usually heavy drain, It Ib hoped that
a large contribution will be made.
Don't Re Afraid to Eat.
Kot what you want when you want
It and "Dlgestlt." Two or three tab
lets after meals digests all the food,
prevents distress, relieves indigestion
Instantly. "Dlgestlt" Is a little tablet
easy to swallow, absolutely harmless.

money will be refunded.?*>0c. Ask at
