We havo the highest regard for the
medical profession. Our preparations
-\re not sold for the purpose of antagonizing
them, but rather as an aid. we
lay it down as an established truth that
internal remedies are positively injurious
to expectant mothers. The distress
and discomforts experienced during the

leviated only by external treatment?by
applying a liniment that softens and re*
l&xes the over-strained mttscles. We
snake and sell such a liniment, com*
bining the ingredients in a maxrncf
hitherto unknown, and call it
Mothers Friend
We know that in thousands of cases
it has proved more than a blessing to
expectant mothers. It overcomes mom*
4n<r s?r*lcn?s<i_ It relieves the sense ei
tightness. Headaches cease, and dan*
ger from Swollen, Hard and Rising
Breasts is avoided. Labor itself if
shortened and shorn of inost 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 snre their physicians
have no objections. "We ask a trial?

chance of injury being the result, because

Saturday, July 21st, was Children's
Day at Bethel Chnrch. As nenal, it
was a perfect success. All the children
deserve credit for the excellent
manner in which ihey acted. Their
perfect recitations and the spirited
manner in which ihe songs were rendered
showed that they had the interest
of Childen's Day in their hearts.
In addition to the program, we had
an address by Mr. English Camak. It
was an earnest, heartfelt talk, fall of
wisdom and advice to nis young comrades,
and indeed we older ones would
do well to give heed to his remarks on
that occasion. English is one of "our

his career, and hope that bis ambitious
dreams for the falure will be

We also had an instructive talk from
our young missionary, Miss Agoes
Knff. ohe gave us an insight L> '.he
training school for missionaries in
Kansas, of which she is a member.
Like herself, her talk was sweet and
interesting, and listening to her seemed
to bring the cause ot missions nearer
to U3. We are proud to know that
one of our own girls has enlisted in
active service for oar Master. God
bless her, and grant that her sweet influence
may lead many to Christ.
We must mention little Elizabeth
Speigner. That child is a prodigy.
Her recitations and singing would do
credit to a large girl, whereas she is a
mere baby, possessed with a wonderful
voice and memory.

'No.' I went home and brought him

as I have said all over this State, that 1
piohibition wili not verk. It will not
do what is claimed W it. I would
welcome, as quickly as any man., pro- ?
hibition if it were possible for it to be, j
and wobld mean temperance. But
j prohibition will not reach temperance.
and why? Because it has been tried
and has failed in other States and in
counties of Soutn Carolina. Col. Hoyt I
will cite Maine, but I tell you that pro- e
hib'.ti',n in Maine is a failure, and I'll ^
prove i' by the Dernocraiic platform of t
Maine itself. They have made the c
liqnor question the fundamental plank t
of their campaign for this year after ^
trying prohibition for forty years. ?
Under prohibition blind tigers will jj
flourish, and the final outcome will be d
the old barroom system. It is safe to *
say that Gary made a good imaressiou j
a [on the people, and gained strength ?
here. s
A. H. Patterson says that Gary always
concludes his speeches by saying
"Tote for Bryan and Garv." Voice: *
"Hurrah for Bryan." There is one B
thing that Gary always does, and that j
is to hope for the c!2 6oldiers. Bnt
we never have seen anything that he
has done for tbem. Smith took down
his speech in Charleston, and the
charges thai I have made against him
for dodging in Charleston are true,
and I'll prove them. He declares here
that he is for the dispensary, bat ia
Charleston it son ;ded like local w
option to me, and I believe the .
people there so understood him. I am |
for the dispensary, and I want it
understood, I dou't dodge it. Gary
was cheered in Charleston but I wasn't
and it was because I fold them that if
I am elected governor, I will enforce
the dispensary law, and I tell you so i
to-day. Governor McSweeney has '
not done it, and doesn't seem to be \
very anxious to do so. He never sees n
anything. I have asked him if he
didn't see the open bar rooms in t
Charleston with ail their bar fixtures, ^
but he didn.t see them. Vole: "You'll ,,
never be governor." All .he news- r
papers are fighting me, because they
know that if I am elected governor
the law will be enforced, and this is
not what they want. They think that
this prohibition issue will result in p
open bar woms in the long run, and
that is what ih^f want. I am thank- t
fal for the primary because in it I can ?
appear before the people and Jet them ,
know what I am and not depend upon *
the newspapers for it. I don't believe y
prohibition is possible, and I stand
before you to show you why it is not,
and ,1 don't depend upon the papers
for anything. I have becu honored
br my "connty since I was twentythree
years old and am still honored, II
and defy any man to bring against me ^
any charge. We have tried prohibi- ,

enforced. The dispensary law is the n
best law ever put upon the statute .
books of Sontb Carolina, and stands a
monument to the Eelorm movement. '
Governor McSweeney was the next
speaker, and in his speech he showed
how he had labored to give the people
of South Carolina an honest government
and one rnn upon a common
sense basis. He said under my administration
the dispensary law has
been better enforced thsn in any
previous administration. Gov. Tillman
could not enforee it, nor can any
other man until the people want it enforced.
I have reduced the constabulary,
and saved money, and restored
Order and peace, and have instructed I
my constables to perform their duties
on all occasions, and Pi! remove them
if they don't do it.
Cel. Hoyt made a rery earnest appeal
to the people tor prohibition de- ^
daring that it is the only solution.
He says, "I stand alone, on the one ?
issue prohibition. I am fought by "
every-candidate, from Senator Tillman ?

I rely upon the people for their 6up? *;
