Mother's Friend
does expectant mothers so much
good is because it is an external liniment,
to be applied upon the outside, where
much of the strafn comes. It helps because
the pores of the skin readily absorb

tad it absorbed by the parts involved.
I Morning sickness is qurckly banished,
and nervousness is kept completely away.
The sense of dread and foreooding is not
experienced, even during labor itself.
Confinement is short and almost wirnoui

?State Superintendent of Education
McMaban is endeavoring to arrange a
college day at the State fair and has 1
issced circulars of the county superintendents
on the subject. He believes
that it will be beneficial to the
educational institutions 01 me eiaie. i
Friday is the day that Mr. McMahan
suggests would be a good one for the
meeting of the schools and colleges, as
there is not usually anything of much
much importance arranged for this
day. The presence of such a number
of school girls and boys would undoubtedly
be one of the most attractive ,
features of the fair, and Mr. McMaban's
idea is a good one. Should it be
arranged, Mt. Zion oogbt to attend in

A Prominent Young Business Man.
It is onr painful duty to record the
death of Mr Quay D. Williford, one
of the most prominent busiues- men
of the community, tie had been
seriously ill about ten day?, and died
about eight o'clock on Thursday morn
Mr. Williford was born on the 30;h
of March, 1867, and was tbe joungest
son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Williford.
Prepara o.) to his business career be
took a course in the business college
at Louisville. Ky., and begsn business
with his lr. u.r, tho late W. Bf. Williford
, under the fnmname of Q. D.
Williford & Co. Mr. W. LI. Williford
withdrew, and Mr. Q. D. Williford
continued in his own account
with remarkable success In 1893, he
was forced to make an assignment on
account of liabilities as an e.-.dorser.
He then became mansser for his
brother-in law, Mr. J. L. Mimnaugb,

busintsp. His store was always filled
with salable g?ode, and at the time of

largest stock of dry goods ever
brought to Wlnnsboro. Few men in
Winnsboro have been more successful
in bufciness He was progressive, constantly
adding improvement?. He
will be missed in the business aflfnirs
of our community.
