MRS. WM. ARGHER
Tells Mothers What To Do For
"My fourteen-year-old daughter was
"very thin and delicate. She had a
bad cough bo that I become very much
alarmed about her health. She was
nervous and did not sleep well, had
very little appotlte and doctors did
not help her. Having board so much
about Virol, I decided to give It a
trial. It has helped her wonderfully.
She can sleep all night now without
coughing once; In fact, her cough Is
gone. Her appetite Is greatly Im
proved and she has gained In weight.
Vlnol is a wonderful medicine, and I
will always keep It In the bouse. I
wish every mother know what Vlnol
will do for delicate children." Mrs.
Wm. Archer, 223 Broadway, Long
Branch, N. J. *
This decllelous cod ITvor and Iron
preparation without oy is a wonderful
body-bullder and\ stnCngth-creator for
both young anal yfd. Wo promise
to give back yo\ff money in ovory
such case where Vlnol does not
benefit This Bhowa our faith in Vlnol.

MR. W. D. BYRD MAKES
HIS ANNUAL ADDRESS
Lire Stock Association Met In Colom
bia last Week and Enjoyed Corn
Tho South Carolina Live Stock as
sociation held its annual meeting in
Columbia last week, taking advantage
of the Corn Exposition to enjoy a two
fold meeting. The association was ad
dressed by a number of prominent ed
ucators and agricultural experts and
the entire* meeting was a success in
many ways, the members receiving
great Inspirations to achieve greater
things In the live stock Industry.
Pres. W. 1). Byrd, of this county,
presided over the meetings and was
j re-elected president of the association.
He made a very strong address in
making his annual report to the as
sociation. Among other things, he
Foremost among the sections of the
Union In conditions, resources and op
portunities stands the South; and
foremost among the states o f the
South stands South Carolina. No
Fourth of July oration Is necessary
on this occasion to convince you of
the superior advantages of our state
and of the grand and glorious future
agriculturally, that is immediately be
fore us. If our people will only avaJl
themselves of their opportunities.
Now, gentlemen, in the Interest of
one of the South's and our State's
greatest possibilities and needs this
association was organized and is per
petuated. No one can easily compute
the value of live stock and better live
stock to the farm'and hence to the
country. It means placing the pro
fession of agriculture on a higher
plane, benutiiying the country homes,
improving ou? school houses and
churches and making the rural dis
tricts more attractive to our young
people. Hence the cry of "back to the
farm" which Is heard today from al
most every section?will cease. The
hoy will remain on the farm. In my
opinion it Is easier to keep the boy
on the farm than to bring him back.
When we build up the rural condi
tions, we Improve the towns, cities
and industries in the state. The op
portunities agriculturally of the South
are great. The thickly populated
North and Northwest with short sea
sons, causing them to rush to make a
little feed for live stock, the cold Icy
winters, with expensive barns to keep
the cattle warm, and other difficulties
that we in the South do not have to
contend with, have their eyes on the
Southland of ours, where we have long
seasons and time enough to easily
produce two of three crops a year on
the same land, winters so mild that
the out-put for a cheap barn is suffi
cient to keep the live stock comforta
ble through the winter, and access to
the purest water God has given to
man or beast and cheap lands. I pre
dict, that when they realize the true
conditions and opportunities of the
South the phrase of "Go West, young
man, go West" will change into "Go
South, young man, go South."
It mcntig furthermore, diversifica
tion, which all will admit, In this pro
gressive age, is essential. For any
farmer to be one-crop ridden is a
curse; and not only until the farmers
of our state make their cotton crop
their surplus will they be entirely In
dependent. Also it will greatly in
crease the fertility and productive
ness of our soli, which will enable us
to make greater yields, hence a great
profit. Wonderful has been the ad
vancomont In agricultural methods In
the last ten years, and wonderful will
be the advancement In the next ten.
And well may the Improvements come,
and to help them to come, gentlemen,
Is one of the purposes of this asso

L/isbon, Fob. 3.?We saw in our
rounds in Union and Spartanburg
counties that the farmers have bowij
more small grain last fall than usual,
and they are preparing their lands
better than ever before, getting their
farms In better shape in many ways,
putting up buildings, repairing their
houses in every place that we have
had the pleasure of seeing. We hear
the farmers and merchants say times
are very hard, but we can't see much
work going on ::n>orp; some of thlr,
handing class, we might say the ne
groes. We know some that have not
done a day a work einoe the holidays.
You might ask tin- question, how are
they getting along? Some of them
made some corn, also a hog. We hope
that the merchants will not be ready
to sell this time. Hold them off as
long as they can, then in the fall it
will be better for all concerned. We
world be glad to see the day come
when every farmr could pay cash for
what he bought. This credit system is
ruining the country. We have not
seen a single load of fertilizer hauled
out of Ijaurens up to date. We don't
hear the farmers say anything ahout
guano.- We think later on they will
commence to haul out when the roads
get better. The ground is good wet,
and we farmers may have a rest spell
for quite a while as to plowing. If
the, fruit trees don't mind, Jack Frost
will set them back.
While we were In Union one of our
friends said, If you want to see a
chicken fight you go out to chicken
farm above Union and you will see It.
We said to the gentleman that the
law will not allow chicken fighting.
"Yes, I know It don't but they fight
Just the same, like they sell whiskey,
carry guns, play poker", and added
"that was the reason that I voted for
the dispensary, It was to down the
blind tigers." Then we asked him, was
he going to play poker and fight chick,
ens to down those that did and they
said "No, they didn't fight chickens or
play poker." We said Laurens don't
have many blind tigers from the fact
that Chief Bagwell and his men are
always on their Jobs and we never
hear of a chicken fight in or around
L/aurens, yet It could be. The men
that follow those things are the men

" I had been troubled, a little, for nearly 7 years,* writes
Mrs. L Fincher, in a letter from Peavy, Ala., "but I was
not taken down, until March, when I went to bed and had
to have a doctor. He did all he could for me, but I got no
better. I hurt all over, and I could not rest At last, I tried
Cardui, and soon I began to improve. Now I am in Ttry
good health, and able to do all my housework"
You may wonder why Cardui is so successful, after
other remedies have failed. The answer is that Cardui is
successful, because it is composed of scientific .ingredients,
that act curatively on the womanly system. It Is a medicine
for women, and for women only. It builds, strengthens, and
restores weak and ailing women, to health and happiness.
If you suffer like Mrs. Fincher did, take Cardui. It
will surely do for you, what it did for her. At all druggists.
