B. C, Brown, 12 Canal S^., Sumter,
S. C, says: "I used Doan's Kidney
Pills and they did me more good than
all the other remedies I had previous?
ly tried. I suffered severely from a
lame back and some days was not
able to work on this account. It hurt
me to stoop or lift, I could not rest
well and no position I assumed was
comfortable. In the morning upon
arising, my back WBi SO lame that 1
could hardly get about. The kidney
secretions also contained a dark sedi?
ment and were too frequent In pas?
sage, l finally procured Doan's Kid?
ney Pills at China's drug store and
they cured mo. 1 have not had a

The tax levy for 1909 for ordinary
Qounty purposes was 2 3-4 miles. It
is now estimated that the levy for
1910 must necessarily be raised to
approximately, 6 mills, although it is
barely possible that the county can
squeeze through on a 5 1-2 mill levy.
The extension of the Alcolu Rail?
road from Durant's to the city, a dis?
tance of about t?n miles, would give
Sumter a direct route to the Pudding
Swamp section. Mr. Alderman will
bring his road to Sumter if the peo?
ple of Sumter want it. This is a
hard fact, not hot air. Do we want
the Alcolu road and an opportunity
to obtain a large share of the trade
of Southeast Sumter county, eastern
Clrendon and western Florence?
To bring this railroad Into Sumter
would be a notable achievement for

Florence 's going after the Alco

nothing to secure it, although it is a
well known fact that it wouid be
much easier to induce Mr. Alderman
to extend his road to this city than
it will be for Florence to annex it.

you cannot be too careful. You cannot
