Wrangling over n Petty Case in Po
Columbia, March 13.?"Bitter earn
ings of a cheap politician and dema

reputation of any lawyer. I, there,
fore, have no comment to make on
the utterances of the Chief Executive,"
said City Attorney Harry N. Edmunds
this morning, In reply to the criticism
of Governor Blease contained in his
letter to acting Mayor Keenan. This
is the latest turn in the sensu tion
sprung by the fining of the negro
chauffeur of the Governor for exceed

talk this morning.
What the Governor Says.
In a leter to Mayor Pro Tern Keenan
Governor Blease said:

we will see which paid the dearest?

Harrison Neely on Saturday morn

Neely, when he paid the $3.75. If you
find that you have lost in dollars and
cents by the transaction, I presume
you "will not complain. If Harrison
Neely finds he has lost, I will guaran
tee you he will not complain. 'He who
laughs last laughs best.'
"As to the opinion of the attorney
you enclose, I presume he learned at
the State campaign meeting in Colum

out of the way on the stage and took
charge of his meeting, that I neither
receive political or other instructions
'.As to the last sentence in your let

hearing at any time upon your griev

been asked for any hearing, and when
you are I presume it will be time
enough for you to grant it. When I
do ask it I am sure you will grant it.

it is directed, save Sumter Earle, may

A Woman Is Wonderfully
The delicate structure of a woman's body is a source of wonder to medical men.
So complicated are its parts that only the most learned are capable of understand
ing it. Women do not know themselves. They do know, however, what It
means when any of these delicate parts get weak or disordered. They alone know
the suffering, the misery, the prostrating offect when the generative system
becomes irregular. The disturbance not only robs them of strength and the
enjoyment of health, but they have work to do and It must be done In spite of a
body that is weak and suffering and a mind that is harassed by the dread of an
Invalid's fate. Happily, most of these ailments of women are curable and one of
the most dependable medicines for the relief of such troubles Is Dr. Simmons
Squaw Vine Wine. It is prepared expressly for the diseases of women. It is
a successful medicine. One that builds up the Nervous System and strengthens
and regulates the generative organs. It stops the painful symptoms promptly,
tones up the nerves, makes the body strong, the digestion good, and restores a
feeling of Wellness, of power to perform the household work without fatigue.
Ailing women should try this remedy. It will give them back the health, strength
and vigor of girlhood days. /
