Good Work on Plank Road. .Several reports have reached us of the good work" that Supervisor Edmunds ia doing in claying the heavy sand beds on the old Piauk road below Trenton. If the county puts this road in first-class condi tion, it seems that the citizens, es pecially the automobile owners, should devise some way of keeping the bad places repaired. It is im possible for the county's road work ing force to-cover the roads of the county more than once in 15 or 18 months, and in that time the best of our roads need much repair work. The automobile owners wbo use the road to Augusta frequently should devise some some way of keeping the road in good order af ter Mr. Edmunds does the .heavy work. Celebrated Civic Worker Com ing.

The death of Mr. John Galloway last Wednesday afternoon marks the passing of another gallant vet eran. Mr. Galloway was in his 72nd year.

He was a mem ber of Rocky Creek church but the interment took place in the ceme tery adjoining Philippi church, where some of his relatives were buried. The funeral was conducted by Rev. H. B. White, the' pastor of Rocky Creek church. The Edgefield friends of Mr. Galloway will miss his visits to our town. Mr. Galloway is survived by his wife and four daughters. Mrs. J. C.

Miss Garrick Waa Told Her Case Waa Hopeless. "You have about three months to live." Miss Effie Garrick, of 1110 Huger street, Columbia, was told after she had undergone an op eration for stomach trouble, more, than a year ago. Miss Garrick said "I did not die, bet I did continue to feel terrible until I recently; fonnd a means of combatting my troubles. , Miss Garriok says she believes she has at last found a means of restoring her health, which, all too soon for her years, has threatened daring the past years to break down oomoletely. She was a sufferer for. a long time with stomach troubles, and other kindred ailments, which reduced her health to a ?. state which made her almost wretched all the. time, she said. Tanlac, the master medioine, Miss Garrick believes, will prove its superior worth in her case, as it has in hundreds of other cases in South Carolina. Her state ment follows: . "I have suffered for ten years with stomach troubles, indigestion, nervousness, sleeplessness and head aches. My system all the time has been in a very much run down con dition. More than a year ago I be came so ill I felt that I would die. After I had undergone an opera tion, I was told I could hardly live more than three months. "Of course, I did not die, but I did continue to feel terribly. Nt th ing seemed to relieve my troubles. I took many kinds of medicines, but to no avail. I would have head aches frequently, and they were so painful I thought surely I would go orazy, so nervous would I become. While I had headache, I - would be forced to stay in bed. I would suffer with a full, heavy feeling about my stomach after eating, and I was forced to eat only a light diet. MY condition has been steadily growing worse during t?ie past ten years. "I decided to try Tanlac, as a sort of forlorn hope, as I had read so much about its wonderful effects. The first bottle relieved my stomach trouble to an extent that I consider remarkable. 1 began to sleep wei!, and my appetite became so enor mous, so much did it improve. I would have to get something to eat. My system responded imme diately to Tanlac and built up rap idly. "Tanlac is a great medicine, and I am always glad to recommend it. It is due many good words, for it is so valuable a remedy." Tanlac, the master medicine, is sold exclusively by Penn & Hol stein, Edgefield; Johnston Drug Co., Johnston; G. W. Wise, Tren ton. Price $1.00 per bottle straight. WAR UPON PAIN! Pain is a visitor to every home and usually it comes quite unex pectedly. But you are prepared for every emergency if you keep a small bottle of Sloan's Liniment handy. It is the greatest pain kill er ever discovered. Simply laid on the skin-no rubbing required it drives tho pain away. It is really wonderful. Melvin H. Soister, Berkeley Cal. writes: "Last Satur day, after tramping around the Pan ama Exposition with wet feet, I came home with my neck so stiff that I couldn't turn. I applied Sloan's Liniment freely and went to bed. To my surprise, next morn ing the stiffness had almost disap peared, four hours after the second application I was as good as new." all 25c druggists.-1 Fertilizers with Pota Fertilizers with Amii atv O',- ' Call on the E< fort] Armour's, Royster' Che We will be able Gall on R, C.
