R Word
to Doctors
We have the highest regard for the
xnedic?l profession. Our preparations
are no- sold for the purpose of antagonizing
thei$, but rather as an aid. We
lay it down as an established truth that
internal f&nedies are positively injurious
to expectant mothers. The distress
and discomforts experienced during the
jnonths preceding childbirth can be alleviated
only by external treatment?by
applying a liniment that softens and relaxes
the over-strained muscles. We
make and sell such a liniment, combining
the ingredients ia a maanex
hitherto unknown, and call it
Mother s Friend
We know that in thousands of cases
it has proved more ':han a blessing to
expectant mothers. 11 overcomes morn
ing sickness. It relieves the sense of
tightness. Headaches cease, and danger
from Swollen, Hard and Rising
Breasts is avoided. Labor itself is
shortened and shorn of most of the pain.
We know that many doctors recommend
it, and we know that multitudes
of women go to the drug stores and buy
it because they are sure their ohysicjans
have no objections. We ask a trialjust
a fair test There is no possible
chance of injury being the result, because
Mother's Friend is scientifically
compounded. It is sold at $i & bottle,
and should be us>*d during most of
the period of gestation, although great
relief is experienced if used only a short
time before childbirth. Send for our illustrated
book about Mother's Friend.

We are thoroughly aware of the
fact that the town council hasn't at its
disposal "money to burn," but some
scheme ought to be devised by which
we can secure better lighted streets.
On Snnday [evening a News and
Herald man was in the northern part
of towD, aud except for an occasional
faint gleam of light from an open
door or window of the dwellings
along the street he could see nothing
to relieve the intense darkness. There
was not a lighted street lamp between
Fairfield Street, on wbich the A. E.
P. Church is located and the Fortune
Park road. There are some side
streets where except on moonlight
nights the gloom is jast as deep.
Wheelmen are not disposed to kick
about the ordinance that requires them
to carry lanters, because mey realize
perfectly the wisdom of ifc, but pedestrians
gare very much inclined to
protest against a condition ,of things
that renders it necessary lor <bem to
carry lamp3 or torches as a matter of
personal safety.

The 4th of July, the one hundred
and twentv-third anniversary of the
birth of this- republic, was celebrated
in a very luild way in Winnsboro.
There was no ringing- of bells, no
booming of cannon, nor did the small
boys take advantage of the privilege
usnally accorded them of setting off
fire crackers galore. The bank and
postoffice officials were given a holiday,
"out no other places of business closed.
There was quite a crowd of colored
people in town, attracted probably by
the game of base ball played in the
afternoon between the Winnsboro and
Gladden's Grove. The game was
called at 4 p. m., and proceeded
smoothly through the sixth inning.
At this stage of the game, however,
liie official score; was oougea 10 leave
to catcb a train. An attempt was
made to provide a substitute but the
dusky ball tossers from Gladden's
Groye were not satisfied with any of
the selections made and refused to
play to a finish. "When the game was
called the score stood 15 to 14 in favor
of the visitors.

Tbe "Glorious Fourth" wa9 celebrated
in our little town very enthusiastically,
especially among the
colored people. It is true we never
had any baDds of music or odd fellow
parades, as we have been having here
tofoie, but our streets were crowded
all day. Two [or three little incidents
of excitement were stirred up during
the day. Chief of police W. H. Mackorell
arrested a negro named Anti for
making some little fuss on the streets
and was taki: g himlo the guard house,
when suddenly the -negro made a dart
and escaped. The chief shot at him
several limes bat Anti made good his
escape, jumping wire fences and gullies.
lie was said to be one of Mr.
Tnos. Brice's ftenauts, of Woodward,
Mr. Walter Blain acted as assistant
duiiDg the fourth. The council have
put a hustle on themselves here of
late and are going tu have a better
ov'r. of things in the incorporation,
whhb ha3 been greatly ne?ded for a
lonu tirns.
A company h*.s purchased, conditionally,
a tract or part of a tract of
laud from Mr. Jjha Peay, near here,
with the view of workinga gold mine.
The*- claim that the ore is rich enough
so pay very well, provided there is
enough Iq quantity. They have begun
to work already, and in a few weeks
we hope to see the mine in full blast,
and no doubt if this proves successful
there will be many experimenting.
It was my pleasure 10 attend the
picnic at the Catawba Falls on July
4th. There was only a small number
present. A friend and myself accompanied
by a guide went down the old
canal and took an inspection of the
locks and the old rock house. There
is certainly some of the finest rock
work on these locks and house that
I have ever seen. The locks are about
twelve feet wide and an average of
twenty deep, and each about foity
yards long. This cinal is several
miles long and every hundred
yards there is a basin. Our ?uide informed
us that tnese basins were the
places where the boats met and lay in
to let others pass through the locks
first. The old canal. ,of course.is filled
'up", "bt'it tbe~Tocks are still open, although
they have large trees growing
in them, showing that it has been a
number of years since it wa3 used. As
to the ro?k house our guide informed
us that there were several more up
and down the river. But we could
nrtt nn/)arcf > nrl fho nf tV>i? hnnefl
unless it was used as a depot, which
in all probability it was, as they were
several miles apart. This canal was
opened some time prior to the Revolution
or about that time. It was in
use daring the latter part of the war,
as it is said [the British used it a great
deal. The foundation of the old
armory still remains on- th$ bank of
the canal, which goes to prove that the
British did use it. There are some

whole thing that will never be known.
The question I would like to know is,
who does the canal belong to? I will
have to stop this subject as I know
very little about it, but would like to
know more.
