Faribault, Minn. She says: "Let me tell you how much
good Cardui has done me. As a young girl, I always had
to suffer so much with all kind of pain. Sometimes, I wai
so weak that I could harc'ly stand on my feet I got a
bottle of Cardui, at the drug store, and as soon as 1 had
taken a few doses, I began to feel better.
Today, I feel as well as anyone can."

number of troubles and irregularities, peculiar to women,
which, in time, often lead to more serious trouble.

relieve weakness, headache, and other unnecessary pains,
the signs of weak nerves and over-work.
For a tonic, take Cardui, the woman's tonic

Issue of Veracity.
A sharp Issue of veracity was raised j
yesterday between Senator W. J.
Johnson of Fairfleld county and IL I).
Rantin former editor of the Fairfleld
News, a weekly paped published at
Ridgeway when Mr. Rantin took the
stand before the legislative commit
tee he declared that Senator John
son had given him the Information
that $50,000 bad been paid by James
S. Famum for immunity. During
last year there appeared In the Fair
field News an editorial to the effect
that Famum had paid $."?0,000 and
that seven indictments were wiped
out against him. The statement was
made directly. Mr.-Rantin was the
editor of the paper at that time. He
declared yesterday that the informa
tion bad been given him by Senator
Johnson. At the last meeting of the
commission Senator Johnson denied
that he knew of any additional money
being paid by Farnum to Attorney
General Lyon or any other State of
ficial. Members of the investigating
committee said yesterday that Sena
tor Johnson will be recalled to testify.
It was brought out that Senator John
son was a stockholder in the Fairfleld
News when the editorial appeared.
The witness appearing yesterday
expressed high opinion ns to the
ability of the members of the Ansel
commission. The governor dismissed
the commission on the grounds of,
A letter was received by the com

opville. former secretary of the Hlease
commission, who resigned. Mr. Kelly
staled that on account of court busi

.Limes v. Wallace a member of the
Blenso commission appearing before
the committo yesterday, insinuated
that Attorney General Lyon and T. B.
Felder had deposited some money in
a bank in Cincinnati which they bad
collected from Dennis Weiskopf who
bad overcharged the Stiite of Sou"i
Carolina for labels and intimated th..t
it was the intention of Lyon and Fel
der lo cover up the money as it had
not been reported to the Hlease com
mission. Mr. Wallace stated that the
first that the Hlease commission knew
thai this money was on deposit in
Cincinnati was when P, H. Nelson
brought out the fact on cross-exami
nation of one of Mr. Lyon's witnesses
In the trial of the famous "label
At this point Attorney General
Lyon called the committee's attention
to the fact that Mr. Wallace was "giv
ing bis opinion as evidence and that
the opinions were false." Mr. Lyon
also stated that he had In bis posses
sion a copy of the written contract
entered into by Mr. Felder with
Weiskopf by which it was agreed to
pay to the Slate $7,000 when Weis

BLACK LOW SULLIVAN.
My ancestors lived In Charlotte
county, Virginia. This section was
so overrun and eat out by the armies
of the old Seven Years War. that my
people decided to move to a quieter
place, so they came down on the
Ogechec river near the old capitol of
Georgia, Louisville. They got into a
hornet's nest again, were called out
for six months' military duty under
Capt. Game Harvey and Col. Twiggs,
and while absent from their home, the
Tories and Indians made a raid on
them; stole their cattle and provisions
and two negro men, Matt and Low.
Matt joined a tory command and was
hung by them for some impudence to
the captain's wife. Our folks stayed
one year over there and moved to Lau
rens County, S. C, on Little river,
near Odell mill. After the close of the
war, Charles Sullivan went to Charles
ton after farm supplies. While in the
city he ran on his old slave Low. dress
ed out in a British red coat. He told
Low he was going to carry him back
with him. He consented to return if
his wife was allowed to come with him
He claims to have married a free wom
an In Charleston. When the family
moved up into Greenville county In
1784 a Baptist preacher, William Webb,
came out to visit his old neighbors
who had emigrated south. On a visit
to Ch.irles Sullivan, Low's wife was
waiting on the table at dinner, and
heard the preacher tell about their old
Virginia friends that they had left
up there. Low's wife told him she
knew all those people and had heard
him preach in Virginia. On his return
he mentioned about Low's wile living
with a certain family. The gentleman
got interested in the conversation and
had him to give a minute description I
of the negro woman. He came out all
the way from old Virginia to take a
look at her, and she proved to be his
slave that had run away during the
revolutionary war. Her owner carried
her back to Virginia. So Low lost his
wife. Low fell into the possession of
Hewlett Sullivan, who bought him an
other wife and made this agreement
with him: when you and Sylvia have
twelve children 1 will set you free.
They raised fourteen children. Low
beat his master Hewlett two in num
ber, who raised twelve children. Low
moved Into a cabin to work for him-]
self. When his wife died he was
moved hack, so he could be looked af
ter In his old age. Low was the an
cestor of Charles P. Sullivan's body
servant, Spencer, who was well known
in Laurens. and of Capt. O. W. Sulli
van's, foreman, Long Tom Sullivan.
