Mr A. V. Moorman Pa88e4 Away After a
Aflter a lingering illness of several
iiooths, Mrs. Addle V. Moorman died
T1hursday night at her home on McBie
Avenue. Her death had been hourly
expected for several dqys, but this fact
did not lessen the shock to ?ter devoted
faintly and relatives.
Mrs. Moorman was born in Marion
County, November 25, 1857. Her fa
ther was Mr. Joseph Davis, who died
when Mrs. Moorman was quite youtug.
A few years later, her mother be
came the wife of Rev. J. 13. Campbell,
of the South Carolina Conference, who
is now presiding elder of the Rok Hill
district. The devoted affection which
has always existed between step-father
and step-daughter was something very
beautiful. When a little over twenty
years of age, Miss Davis was married
to Mr. Robert Moorman, of Newberry,
whose death occurred in October, 1896,
as the rosult oi an untimely accident.
A short while after her husband's
death, Mrs. Moorman removed with her
family to Greenville and purchased the
lovely home where she died.
Mrs. Moorman had since her child
hood been a member of. the Methodist
Episcopal Ch urch , Sou th. Her charac
ter was that of a true, pure Christian
and throughout ber illness she was sus
tained by an unfaltering trust in her
Saviour, with no fear of death. Around
her bedside in the last hours were her
mother, her children and other rela
The deceased leaves one daughter
and two sons who, at their mother's
request, will make their future home
with Mrs. L. W. Simkins, of Laurens,
a sister of Mr. Moorman. Mr. W. S.
Davis, of Marion, is the only brother
of Mrs. Moorman, and Mr. William
Hill and Mrs. . W. 11111, of this city,
are her half-sisteri.
The funeral services were held yes
terday afternoon at the Buncombe
Street Methodimt, Church and were con
ducted by the pastor, Rev. W. A.
Rogers and Rev. Ii. It. Br-owne, of St.
Piaul's. The inLermttnt was at Spring

The friende of prohibition in New
berry County are requested to organize
their respective townships at once, and
s3lect one of their number to represent
them or the county executive commit
tee, \and send his name o me not later
than April the 30th, when I will call
the committee together to elect a county
chairman. I desire to have the county
thoroughly organized for the cam
paign, and I ask the support and influ
ence of all friends of temperance and
all temperance organizations to make
this the strongest prohibition county in
the State. This is a light for the pro
tection of our homes and to free our
solves from the curle of whiskey in
every form. The sale of intoxicating
liquor as a beverage is calculated to
ruin our homes and the young men of
the State, atid it is In order to do away
with the existing agencies for its sale,
and lot prohibitionists themselves
make and enforce laVs that will im
prove the present condition of affairs,
that we have undertaken this work and
not to have to put up with so-called
prohibition laws made to suit the ad
versaries of prohibition.
The prohibitionisttof the State of
South Carolina, in convention assem
bled, on the 14th day of April, 1898,
hereby adopt the following platform:
First. We declare our allegiance to
the regular Democratic party and our
suggested nominees stand p)lcdged to
abide the result of the Democratic pri
Second. We declare that we are un
alterably opposed to the manufacture
and sale of alcoholic or malt liquors,
except for mechanical, medicinal, sci
entiflc or sacrameutal purposces.

subject, is narrated by him tas follows:
"I was in a most dreadful condition.
My skin was ainio8tyellow,eyes sunkeui,
tongue coated, pain continually in
back and sides, no appetite-gradually
growing weaker day by day. Three
physicians had given ime up. Fortu
nately, a friend advised trying Elec
tric Bitters; and to tny great joy and
surprise, the ti rst bottle mo ade a decided
improvement. I continued their use
for three weeks, and am now a well
man. I kn( w they saved my life, and
robbed the gravd of another victim.''

The strength which comes to us from
eating nourishing food is better than
stimulation, because it, is new strength.
The health which belongs to I strong
I:ody, well nourished by proper food
(properly digested), is the only health
that is lasting.
The difference between Shaker Di
gestive Cordial and other medicines
is simply that it helps nature to make
strength. It does not profess to cure
sickness, except as that sickness is a
result of weakness caused by food not

to American ti toops oil the island oc
murring from the climate.
The death rate among the 'panlsih
%emy is due to the fact that they are
badly fed, and there are no sanitary ar
rangements porfected in camp life.
