Almost a Miracle.
One of tho most startling changes
ever seen In any man, according to
W. B. Holsohaw, Clarendon, Tex., was
effected years ago In his brother "He
had such a dreadful cough," he writes,
"that all our family thought he was
going Into consumption, but he began
to use Dr. King, New Discovery, and
was completely cured hy ten bottles.
Now ho Is Bound and well and weighs
218 pounds. For many years our fam
ily has used this wonderful remedy
for Coughs and Colds with excellent
reBuiyj." It's quick, safe, reliable and
guaranteed. Price 50 cents and $1.00.

Noted Author, Traveller, nnd Lecturer
to (live Free Entertainment to Lau
rens People Next Thrusduy Night.
Messrs. S. M. & E. H. Wilkes &
Company have Induced the world-wide
humorist "Cedariue" Allen to come
to Laurens on April 18th, next Thurs
day, to give one of his lectures "Feel
ings, % JAdks and Foreign Fllghtw."
This firm is going to foot the entire
bill for the lecture and invites all the
people of Laurens to be present to
bear him. It will be given In the opera
bouse, beginning at 8:30 o'clock p. m.
Mr. Allen is a noted humorist, au
thor and traveler and his lecture will
be confined almost entirely to sub
jects of interest to any audience. He
will give bis experiences and impres
sions as a globe trotter and as a stu
dent of human nature, interspersing
his remarks with humorous touches j
that are bound to be pleasing.
The Jamestown (N. Y.) Evening
Journal has this to say of him:
"George Hoyt Allen, known as|
"Cedariue" Allen, gave a most de
light tjrnfyel lecture on "Fcdllngs,
Folks and Foreign Flights" in thel
auditorium of the Y. M. C. A. Friday
evening. Those who have read "Itl
Tickled Him", a travel book by Mr. |
Allen, found that the same peculiar
humor running through the book was
also a distinguishing feature of the
lecture. The audience was given the
full bone lit of Mr. Allen's observations
of life nnd customs in the Far East.
* * He closed with a few words on!
India, concluding with a story of a
curio dealer who refused to sell ev
en to the king of England on Sunday.
The lecture was a good hour in lengthI
and was entertaining and instructive
Mr. Allen will also give a practical
demonstration of the parcels post In
I CROSS HILL NEWS
Cross Hill, April 15th.?A good
many of the patrons were present at
the school auditorium to bear the
speaking contest last Friday, to de
cide who should represent Cross Hill
at the county contest next Friday ev
ening. Six boys made speeches as
follows: Fred Coleinnn, "Chnrocter of
Napoleon"; John Carley, "The Black
Horse and its Rider"; James Koon,
"Conspiracy of Catalino"; William
Loaman, "Dedth of Copernicus"; Dow
ey Nelson. "SpnrtiCUS the Gladiator";
Simmons Pinson, "Death of La Fay
ctte". Prof Culbertson of Mountvllle,
Mr. S. A. French and Dr. Klugh were
the judges. They decided that Dewey
Nelson must represent Cross Hill at
Laurens. ' Dewey received a medal
given by a citizen. All the soys ac
quitted themselves splendidly. Their
training is a credit to the school. The
school here will close the 3rd of May
With commencement exercises, a pro
gram of which will appear later. Prof.
Smith and his corps of teachers have
had a successful school year. Every
thing has moved on so nicely.
There was a wild west show in town
last Friday night, it attracted the us
Mr. W. 11. Austin attended the mon
ument unveiling In Columbia last
Miss Cleo Walker, of Laurens, vis
ited her people here last Saturday and'
Mr. Wilkins, a young business man
of McCorinlck, was the guest of Mr.
and Mrs. FL A. Austin Saturday and
Last Thursday was a great day in
Columbia and this correspondent is
glad he contributed bis mite to help
build the monument to the Women of
the Confederacy, The many men "who
forgot the trials of their wives and
mothers and did nothing" ought to be
glad that others carried on the work
to completion. This correspondent
was not quite old enough to be in the
war but remembers vividly the self
denials, trials and sufferings, in sus
pense and anxiety, for the boys at the
front by their mothers and sisters.
We think the monument a fitting and
much delayed tribute to their faith
fulness. It nlways seemed strange to
me that so many "who had a heritage
from patriot mothers were willing to
let others pay the tribute."
There will be an entertainment at
the school auditorium next Tuesday
evening, April 23, "Simpson's little
brenkfast party", given by home talent
all for the benefit of the school.

Before You Buy Your Car, Get a Parts
Price List and Look Up Your Taxes
To tell you lo get a Paris Price List before you buy a ear is like
telling you to look into your taxes before you buy land. Parts
Prices and Tax Rates are a good deal alike. They both < ome
after you buy.
Any good business man knows about his taxes before he invests
his money. But if more automobile owners gave attention to
parts prices, some cars would rarely be seen on the streets.
Right here is where Studebaker square dealing gets your
Compared with the list prices of the Cars, Studebaker parts
are sold at lower cost than parts of any other car whatsoever.
Studebaker parts supplies are maintained at 36 branches all over
the country and by our 2,500 dealers.
Studebaker Parts Price Lists are the most convenient ever issued
and the owner of any E-M-F "30" or Flanders ,(20" car
can always secure spare parts. No discontinuing parts supplies
with Studebaker. Remember these things; you can profit by them.
Next week we shall say something of real guarantees, near-guar
tees, and plain "no-account" guarantees. You may be interested.
