The usually quiet town of Pick.

it was last Thursday morning when

Even his intimate friends wore

hocked beyond measure to know
hat he was dead.

)ay but little attention to it. The
ay beforo his death, he seemed
[uite cheerful, and stated that he
xpected to be out in a vory few
ays. But he was taken sudden
y worse Wednesday night and all
uman agencies for his relief wore
a vain, and the noble, manly spir
t took its everlasting flight about
o'clock Thursday morn ing.
The shock to the grief stricken
amily beggars description.
Our deceased friend was in the
8th year of his age, and was a fine
peciman of physical manhood.
Since March 1897, he had been
onnoctedl with his brother,in-law
. L. 0. Thompson in the publi
ation of the Pickens Sentinel.
Ie was also actively engaged in
usiness with his father, under
lie firm name of H. A. Richey &
le was a member of the town
ouncil, and was its efficient clerk.
The deceased leaves a stricken
ousehold, consisting of father,
iother, one brother, James T.,
,nd seven sisters; Mrs. Martin,
irs. Flora Lathem, Mrs. J. L. 0.
L'hompson, Mrs. B. B, LaBoon,
Iisses Olga, Sadie and Ola Belle.
After brief funeral services at
ho home, the remamna were taken
~harge of by his brother Masons
if Keowee Loege, of which he was
member, and interred with the
olemn and beautiful rites of that
noient and noble order.
Seldom in the history of the
own has a larger attendance gath
'red to pay the last token of re.
pet to a departed friend.
The sincerest sympathy of the
ntire community goes out to the
orely bereaved family.

"It has been five years since I was cured of
heart trouble by your 1lcart Cure and Nerv
ine, and I dm just as sound as a dollar in
that organ today. For seviral years I had
been suffering with my heart. Breathing
had become short anl difficult at times,
short, sharp pains about the heart, sometimes
accompaned with fluttering would make
me feel faint and languid. The least excite
ment or mental worry would almost unnerve
mre. I felt that the trouble was growing
worse all the time, and after trying many
remedies prescribed by physicians without
obtaining relief, I was induced to give your
remedies a trial. I was relieved the second
day, and after taking three or four bottles all
symptoms were removed and have never
showed signs of returning."--REv. oEo. W.
KIRACOPE, Chincoteague, Va. ,
There are many symptoms of heart disease,
which so closely resemble those of more com
mon nervous disorders as to frequently mis.
lead the attending physician. Often in cases
of heart trouble the stomach. kidneys, liver or
lnngs become Iffected. Again the symptoms
may be those of weakened nerves, as tired
feeling, sleeplpssness, tinwidity, the patient is
easily excitable and apt to worry without
cause. If you have the least suspicion that
your heart is weak study your symptoms and
