wishing unless there's the Will to do it.
The man or woman who says *'I will have |

The ailments of women include symptoms of heart trouble known as palpitation
of tho heart. The palpitation Is so violent at times as to be really painful and
leads tho patient to fear she has heart disease. Ninety per cent of such cases are
not heart disease at all but only a symptom of a liver disorder which has affected
tho normal action of the heart, and on applying tho proper remedies the unusual
throbbing ceases. The stomach and digestion need strengthening and the
depressing effect of theso disorders on the female organism must be corrected.
For the latter purpose there is no more effective remedy to be found anywhero than
Squaw Vine Wine
It convoys a strengthening infiuenco io the deilcalc famale organism, re-establishes
regular and healthy periods, overcomes \Y'j painful symptoms, builds up tho
nerves and puts the generative system in fine healthy condition. For the liver
and bowel disorders one or two doses of Simmons Liver Medicine is all that is
needed. It clears the stomach and bowels of impurities, helps digestion and tho
proper nourishment of the body the result of which is sound, healthy
conditions all through the system.

LARRY OAINTT ASSAILS
THE SENIOR SENATOR
Declares Tillman Is Untrue to His
People. One of Former Loudest
Tlllman Champion Severely Arraigns
His Former Leader.
(News and Courier.)
Would anybody have believed twenty
years ago that the time would ever
come when T. Larry Gantt would turn
on Ben Tlllman and bitterly assail
nim as a traitor? Capt. Tlllman in
those days had no louder champion.
Through the Columbia Register and
in other newspapers Larry, to quote
his own words, "tried to do with his
pen what Ben did with his tongue."
It was Larry, so it has always been
understood, who first suggested to
Tlllman, then governor, the estab
lishment of the State dispensary sys
tem, Larry having gotten the idea
from the county dispensary which
?ab then in operation in Athens, Ga.
Larry is now running a weekly
newspaper, the News-Reporter. In
Whlteville, N. C, Just across the line
from Hojry county, and In his last
Issue he devoted nearly four columns
to a review of Mr. Tillman's career in
the endeavor to prove that by his let
ter urging the election of .lones prov
ed himself a traitor to the "common
people," who put him Into office. Lar
ry being now as enthusiastically for
Governor Blease as ever he was for
Capt. Tlllman. Ills disaffection for
the latter is not, it appears, of recent
origin. He says:
How Tillmun Was Nominated.
"We have seen for years that the
environments of Washington city and
new associations had wrought a com
plete change in Tillman's policy, If
not his vltws, and when he voted for
Lorimer, we knew that the day had
come when the masses of South Car
olina, if not the Democrats of that
state, must search out another leader
who was in closer touch with them
and their Interests. But we did not
criticise Tillman, for we disliked to
help pull down a popular idol, but
juietly waited for that idol, of its own
free will, to tumble from the pedestal
upon which admiring constituents had
Larry has a good many Interesting
things to say in the article which fol
lows this remarkable statement. Per
haps the most Interesting is his dec
laration that the "Reform movemen"
never profited in the slightest degree
the "one-gallus wool hat boys" who
formed its backbone. But his article
speaks for Itself. He declares his pur
pose to write a defense of "the com
mon people of the Palmetto State"
from which "it will be seen that the
charge Tillman makes of Ingratitude
is laid at the wrong door." and with
this professed purpose in view he pro
ceeds as follows:
"When John L. M. Irby. in the fa
mous March convention that gave
jblrth to ithe Reform movement,
brought about the nomination of Till
man (we believe by one vote) after he
(Tlllman) had given up the light and
was found silting on the banks of the
river ready to go back home to his
farm. Ben Tillman was a small dairy
farmer in Edgeflcld county, and report
said he was in the same fix as thou
sands of other farmers at that time,
losing money, if not a practical bank
"No one can deny that Tillman made
a magnificent fight for the release of
his people from practical political
servitude, and taught them their
rights and their power. He triumph
ed, and In their love and gratitude the
farmers continued to heap honors and
rewards upon his head. Even since
1800 he has been holding lucrative
Officers and drawing large salaries. It
Is believed that today Tillman Is a
rich man. Any way, he and his fam
ily have for more than twenty years
been living on the fat of the land, as
it were, and enjoying all the pleasures
and luxuries of life.
The Charge of Ingratitude.
"As it was the votes of the men
whom Ben Tlllman denounced as in
grates, and so severely criticised, that
gave him those high offices, and it was
the men to whom Tillman rightfully
says he owes his scant majority over
Talbert and Dial, who saved him from
a crushing and ignominious defeat, af
ter writing that eleventh hour letter
attacking Govern.>r Blease. No one
denies the good work Tlllman did for
the masses In South Carolina, but no
man who ever battled for his people
was so long and richly rewarded.
Without intending to make any Invi
dious comparison, we would ask, what
general among the struggling Amer
ican colonists did better or more pl
iant service for his country than Bene
dict Arnold the hero of Saratoga? But
Arnold betrayed his country in its
darkest hour, and wont over to the
enemy, and his name will ever be us
ed to oxpress the blackest treachery.
Now, we do not Intend to convey the
Impression that there Is any connec
tion whatever between the careor of
Benedict Arnold and Benjamin Ryan
Tillman, but we simply cite this case
to show thot when a person goes over
to the enemy, when tho cause for
which he has so valiantly fought
seems lost?an In tho fight between
the Blease and Jones factions in
South Carolina, when every newspa
per and great Influence was enlisted
against Blease and pulling for Jones
?the humble masses are wide awake
and silently watching the line-ups. To
our mind, it was Tillman who deserted
the wool-at, one-gallus boys, and
not they who deserted Tillman. The
people judge a man by the company
he keeps, and when Tillman gave his
om;e-powerful aid to an element that
had so vindictively, yea venomously,
fought him In the past, and left as
he thought and every outsider believl
ed, his former adherents and their
gallant young standard-bearer they
had chosen to go down in defeat, he
that moment lost the confidence and
support of the common people in his
State, and to whom he owed much?
In fact the lifting up of Tillman from
poverty and obsciulty into distinction
and affluence, if not Into great riches
for a Southerner.
A Profitless Movement
"Now, let us look upon the other
side of the shield and see what the
wool-hat, onegallus farmers, who had
made Tlllman what he now Is, have
gained by the bitter political warfare
and strife that has been wayed In their
state for some two decades? It is
true that they have been educated as
to their political power and rights
but Tlllman does not deserve all cred
it for this for with the establishment
of the rural postal system the farmers
have made wonderful strides of late,
n other states than South I Carolina
theyi have thrown off the shackles of
political servitude and are now set
tling their differences at the ballot.
Rural voters are getting better in
formed and better educated every year,
and they would have broken the
chains of bondage, placed upon them
by ring-rule politicians, had Ben Till
man never been born.
"But for the sake of argument, we
will give Tlllman credit for all that
he claims. Is there another man In
South Carolina who has reaped a rich
er harvest from the political crop he
planted than Tlllman himself? And
what has those woof-hat one-gallus
boys gained? Did that reform move
ment put one red copper Into a single
farmer's pocket? Did It take one sec
ond's work from his daily toil? Did
it relieve his poor, hard-working wife
of one of the thousands of tasks that
she must discharge during the day?
Did it put another crumb upon his
table or add one fagot to the kitchen
fire? Did It enable him to buy one
speck more of flour for his money or
extend for one instant the day of
grace on that crop lien or note? What
did the farmer receive in return for
quitting his fields to repair to the
ballot box and /ote for Tlllman, and
the other reform candidates, save the
empty privilege of hurrahing over his
victory when the returns were receiv
"The farmer then returned to his
field and ploughed on, ploughed on,
while Ben Tlllman and the politicians
proceeded to reap every grain of the
political arvest. Tillman's arraign
ment of his people for Ingratitude Is
like a farmer nbuslng the faithful mule
that made his crop. The only differ
ence is the farmer did feed and stable
that mule, while those Tillman voters
worked for nothing and boarded them
The Farmers' Alliunce.
"When Ben Tillman first started his
political career, there was a movement
organized that did more than all else
for the relief and uplifting of farmers
?the Alliance. Did Tillman join In
this work and lend his aid and talent
to make it a success? No. Indeed.
When the Alliance was in its swad
dling clothes, as it were, and its ex
istence like the life of an infant hung
in the balance, it was Tillman who
joined its enemies to crush this great
movement for the emancipation of our
Southern farmers, and It was only
when convinced thai his (Tillman's)
political elevation hinged upon the
success of the Alliance that he gave
it his aid. There is not an old Alliance
man in South Carolina btu knows this
to be true.
"But in their forgiving kindness and
gratitude, tho one-gallus boys over
lu deed this and for years blindly fol
lowed Tillman. Does not every one
who has watched that Alliance move
ment know that it saved our farmers
from serfdom, for their lands wert1 fast
passing into the control of the mer
chants and others with whom they
traded, and had not the tillers of the
soil been aroused to the danger that
menaced them, you would today see a
few large landed proprietors in the
South and men who now own the
farn.s be but serfs renting fields that
were once their own. But at a critical
moment It was Tlllimns' voice that
was lifted against the grandest and
noblest movement ever organized for
the relief of the man behind the plow,
A Reaper Always.
"Ben Tlllman has ever enjoyed the
happy faculty of always reaping crops
planted and tilled by others. He waits
until the grain is ready to gather,
when he will give a harvest home
among the laborers of his state and
gather the entire crop into his own
