I Saved Girl's Life
"I want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Thedford's Black-Draught," writes
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
* "It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
* liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe. Black-Draught 5
* saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles,
0 they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford's 0
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no

ite Cost of Fishing. *
10ditor Laurens Advertiser:
I ami sending you a statement of
what It cost Webb Elledge and Court
ney White to catch fish at this place.
White gets his over the trap line and
Elledgo gets his by way of the basket
So on 'he first day of January White
bought live dollars' worth of lumber
and made him a trap and put it In the
river and it Is four hundred yerds
from the house. Ile goes to it six
times a day. Well, from the first day
of January to the first day of April
he walked two hun11dred and ninety
fotr Iiousand yards, which is two
hiu ndred an(d eighty-six miles, six lun
Idred and forty yards and he has
knocked off three toe nails, fallen In
tie river sevenl timles, wo.- out thlree
pair of shoes, takeni twelve dollars
worthl of (ouigli syr'up and cautglt lif
teenl pounds of fIsh.
Mr. El' ledge u )),t his baskets in Oh
river at the same time and at a piace
known as tlie "MeNinch lock"' jils
on1e mile froi the power house. Ile
wevnt to tlemii (!vOry day. So, from the
first day of .lanuary to the ilrst day of
A pril he walked one1 h1111dred and
eihty milles, bought four bushels meal
and onle busilel of onions for bait
which cost himin six dollars, paid onie
dollar and fifty cents for the baskets.
Wore out thIree pairs of shoes, tore a
very large hole in the most important
part of a live dollar pair of pants, fell
in the river three tilcs, and canught
six pounds of fish. So he has cut his
baskets loose and if the waters of Sa
luda river carries them where lie told
th1em1 to go and there is any fish In
tilemti wlen they get tlere they will
fry 3uick. lie has decided that the
best way to get fish is to buy 1111lets.
Ilut White has tile patience of Joh.
He still goe:; to his trap six times a
day, and is trying to buy lumber to
make himl another onIe.
Now Mr. Editor, I am no George
Washington, but tho above statement
is true and 1 am1 willing to sign it be
fore a "Notorious Republican". So
there you are.
