'Healthgrams' On Skin
Flashed to -Thousands
One of Nature's signals is an unhealthy skin. It is a
scientific fact that the skin indicates the condition of the
blood and the blood is the building material for the body and all its
vital parts. Unless the.blood is nourished and kept rich and healthy,
it will evenually react on the organs it feeds and reduce the indi
vidual to a pitiable condition. Little do people realize the physical
allments that drain away strength and 'vitality and that can be
traced straight to the poor supply of blood. Pimples, Eczema, Salt
Rheum, Rlheunuatism, Carbuncles, Boils, Catarrh with its obnoxious
results and the tendency to ea';aly catch cold,
Malaria and scores of other eqlually serious all
inlnts, are all ntanifestntionis of bad blood. For
over 50 years S. S. S. has been a mighty remedy
for these disorders. Thousands of imen and
K ~women have been relieved or actually cured by
S. S. S. Many of them had spent years and
'eN5WAWTS. hundreds of dollars for' other remedies in a
fruitless endeavor to regain health--a iarvel

says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman's
tonic. She says further: "Before I began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain would kill me. I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking three bottles
of Cardui, I began to feel like a new woman. I soon
gained 35 pounds, and now, I do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
I wish every suffering woman would give

and it always does me good."

Unable to State That Definite Steps
Have Been Taken to Solving Insur.
Columbia, March 23.-Senator Mc
Iaurin-returned this morning from the
north where he went on business con
nected with the insurance situation.
Senator McLaurin had a talk with Gov.
Manning at the capitol and will later
make a detailed report of his trip to
the north, in which he will discuss
what Is practical to be done. The sen
ator in the course of the morning gave
out an address to the people on the sit
uation; only a small section of which
Is here printed:
March 23, 1916.
To the People of South Carolina:
I have just been north, in an en
deavor to reach some adjustment of
the insurance trouble in this State. I
am making a detailed report to Gov
ernor Manning, containing some spe
ciic conclusions. I feel that I owe it
to the people of the State to let them
understand the situation, as I view it.
The companies, whether "board" or
"non-board," were informed by cer
tain people in ths State that an extra
session of the legislature would be
convened on account of the one hun
(red thousand dollar appropriation to
the asylum. They were also led to
believe that the insurance legislation
was intended to punish the insurance
companies and to arbitrarily fix the
rates. I (lid what I could to relieve
this impression and think that I suc
ceeded to some extent.
I found, however, that the situation
was completely dominated by three-or
tour big companies, and that there
was not common ground u1pon hwich I
could treat with them. While they
are doing business in New York, New
.Jersey and other states where the
rates are supervised by the State, they
said that they were fighting for a
principle and that they contended for
the right to go into any State and fix
I te rate of insurance, and that the
authorities in such States had no right
to qluestion these rates. 1 explained
to them that all we wanted in South
Carolina was to insure that there
should be competition; that under
present conditions there was competi
tion between the agents for business,
but none at. all between the compan
ies fixing the rates. I expressed my
perfect willingness to have the matter
of fixing rates somewhat on the line
or the New York law, with a repre
sentative of both the companies and
the State acting jointly, but they were
absolutely determined in their posi
These men are so far off from the
people, and get their information from
sources that are so antagonistic to
popular thought, that I concluded it
was best to say ntohing more to them
at the present time.
In my report to Governor Manning
I shall discuss what is practical for us
Some of the companies to whom I
talked--the younger and more pro
gressive-are not in sympathy with
t he v'iews of the old complanies, but
do0 not care to antagonize them. it is
hard to make great financiers in New
York understand the situatilon from
this cad of tihe line.

At the close of the great war be
tween the States Capt. John Davis
had collected a considerable amount
of provisions at Laurens Court House.
He used the rooms where Owings &
Owings now have their store for his
commissary. The question came up,
what disposition should be made of
the Confederate government supplies,
as the states had lost their fight. It
was ngreed upon as our soldiers had
returned home with only worthless
Confederate money in their pockets
they should have these supplies for
their families. Word was sent out for
a general gathering of all the soldiers
at Laurens on the next salesday.
A big crowd collected on that day
and a rush was made on the store
room, every man for self. Some got
sacks of flour, sides of bacon and corn,
others rolled out barrels of sugar
syrup. You could see a man getting
astride of his barrel, while some of his
party were bringing up the wagon to
haul off his stuff. I saw one felow
sitting on his gale of cotton, while his
comrades were bringing up the team.
Several bales of cotton were hid in a
little Cuddy hole in the rear of the
storeroom, but the old Confeds found
them and soon they had them out
on the street. Capt. Davis had sever
al barrels of whiskey in his stock.
The old men of Laurens thought it
wouldn't do for the crowd to load up
on whiskey on that day, so they had
the liquor hauled off and hid in a cel
lar until after the raid was over. I
don't know who fell heir to the spirits
after the big divide. If it was made
out of sorghum skimimings the man
that tried to drink it ought to have
had his throat lined with tin.
After the commissary was cleaned
out, soieColne reported that Capt.
lithett had two hundred government
mules in a pasture down on Little Riv
er. A crowd made for the bottom and
soon the mules were located and
captured. Some of the men got one
mule, others got two. Some of the
Laurens merchants signed papers with
Capt. Rlhett that the mules were his
own property, not the Conifederate
States, so the m1en had to return the
mules. If Capt. Ithett had taken the
government mules for a debt due him
by the Confederate States, I think our
soldiers had as miuch right to this
stock as Capt. Ithett. When Sherman
was approaching Columbia, Capt
lthett movedI the mules and wagons
to Laurens. A squad of the Sixth S
C. Cavalry rode into Laurens on theii
way to N. C. They found the Capt
stationed there. They got a little whis
key and told the captain they were
going to carry him to the front, so he
could be in one fight before the war
closed. While they were getting oft
their halters to tie him, he made a
dash into his commissary and closed]
the door. lie raised a window in
the rear and made his escape into a
neighboring store wvhere ihe was h(d
