Fled at He ream of Alken Woman.

Alken. Jan. 11.?Some excitement
was caused last night by the attack
made by a negro upon a resoectable
widow who lives on the outskirts of
the city, and while the matter was
kept very quiet it became known this
morning that half a dozen men
searched for several hours for the un
known negro, without, however, locat
Having remained in town until after
dark the woman was walking home
and had reach a point near "Orange
drove," the winter home of W. But
id Duncan, when the negro, who had
been following her for some distance,
taking advantage of the darkness and
the seclusion of the place, advanced
more rapidly behind hor. Frightened,
the woman stopped and demanded of
the negro to know where he was go
! Ing. He replied he was on his way to
the race track to look for a job. lie
was told then to go on, and not to be
following behind, as he had been do
ing. At tills the negro sprang at the
woman and struck her a blow in the
side. As she fell she screamed, and
; Some one at a nearby house opened a
door and asked what was the trouble.
The negro took to his heels and dis
appeared in the darkness. He was
tracked by the sheriff and a number
' of men across an open field, but ali
trace of him was lost.
The sheriff still has hope of catch
ing him as the woman gave a very
clear description of her assailant.

Tillslde. Jan. 13.?Many thanks to
the generous correspondent from Mad

me in last week's Advertiser. The
writer is glad that the Madden writ

"votes for women". If women were
allowed to cast a baiioi. lue majority
would support the Christian element. I
Dispensaries and blind tigers would
cease to exist, grafters and gamblers
would wear the stripes, and a clean
government would prevail. Men don't
seem to care enough for a clean gov
ernment to cast their ballots for it.
or even voice their sentiment for it.
So long as men cast not their ballot
for this kind of government, so long
as the grafter and gambler go free:
so long as the voters vote not for a ]
clean government and for officials to ]

According to an editorial In a news
j paper of P>t. Paul. Minn., there's a
possibility of abandoning the annual
governor's conference on account of
Cole L. Blease. The editor says a
man like Blease would attend with
out an Invitation, hence the question
of abandoning. It is evr thus. Well,
this we know, that the Calhouns and
Haynes have disappeared from the
horizon of South Carolina.
There are people in Hillside who
are old in years, yet them can nelth
! er read nor write. There are fathers
; and mothers, here who are in that pit
iable condition. Can they be wholly
blamed? No. If there had been a com
'< pulsory education law twenty-five
j years ago these people would have
been educated: their children would
have seen better advantages. These
' people see. partly, what th lack of ed
ucation means yet they do not fully
appreciate its true value. Every
child should be given an education. If
; the parents do not wish for their
children to attend school, they should
be compelled, by the laws of the state,
to see that they attend a certain num
ber of months each year, unless hin
dered b ysickness, or other sufficient
reasons. These same boys and girls
that tottle after us row. must some
day be the citizens?the main pillars?
of this state. These children are the
future citizens. Someday (and not
long hence) this government must
rest upon the shoulders of the chil
dren of today. Shall it fall into the
hands- of uneducated people? Let's
have a compulsory education law, and
thus pave the way for a greater state.
; for, by thus doing we spread .lowers
over, and make smooth the pathway,
over which the feet of the future cit
izen must trod.

Delicate girls who are approaching the age of womanhood are usually subject to
this disease. They are pale because the blood Is weak and watery. Their
complexion has a sickly greenish cast which gives the disease its name. They
have no vitality and it exposed to any unusual excitement, excessive labor or
cold dampness are liable to contract some aisease that will disastrously effect
their whole future lives. It is a most critical period. The right remedy to
relieve this condition and bring back the rosy hue of health is
Squaw Vine Wine
It is a palatable remedy, a fine, pleasant tasting medicine. Its agreeable flavor,
however, is no criterion of its efficacy. It does the work expected of it more
promptly than the harsh, bitter tasting medicines. It begins the restorative process
with the first dose and if used for a reasonable period, the mise?y. weakness and
pallor disappear, the spirits r s^, the appetite becomes good, the sleep sound and
restful and the thin, vitiated biood is rev talized and goes coursing through the
veins, carrying new life, strength and energy to ail parts of the body.
