Mothers should always keep in good
bodily health. Tney one it to their

seo a mother, with babe in arms,
eoughing violently and exhibiting all
the sympto.i s of a consumptive ten
dency. And why ehou.d this danger
ous condition oxls*, dangerous alike bo
mother and child, when Dr. Boscheo's
German 8 rup would pub a stop to it
at once? No mother should be without
ibis old and tried remedy in the house

any lung, throat or bronchial trouble
In herself or her children. Tho worst

Cow Thelf.
Early Saturday morning, a negro,
who gavo his nairo as Young Hix and
claiming Woodruff as his home, tried
to sell a protty Jereey heifer to a local
butcher, whose suspicion was aroused
by tho negro's conduct, and after par
tially closing a trade, with tho negro he
doclined to bo'dupod. A policeman
took up tho case but when be ap
proached Hlx ho abandoned tho yoar
llng and has not been seen since.
It may be a piece of superfluous ad
vice to urgo peoplo at tnis season of
the year to lay in a supply of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy. It Is almost
sure to bo neoded befo - ' Inter is
over, and much more pro?. and sat
isfactory results are obts J when
taken as soon as a cold i. ontracted
and before it has become settled in tho
system, which can only be done by
kooping tho remedy at hand. This
remedy Is *o widely known and so al
togo'.her good that no one should hee
Itato shoot buying it in preference to
any other. I t Is for sale by The Lau

The Event of tlie Xcear?Hints to Pros
pective IC?trrbkorH?A Great Gather
ing of Prosperous Carolinians.
Th? first Greater South Carolina
State Fair will be held on tho new
grounds recently purchased by the
State Agricultural and Mechanical
Society, and which have been lUted up
with all modern Improvements for the
comfort and convenience of both ex
hibitors and visitors. This will be the
thirty-sixth Fair since the rcorganiza
tlon of the Society after the civil war,
and will be held the last week in Oc
tober, from the morning of the 26 th
to the evening of the 28th.
Every county In the State should be
represented In the exhibits, for there Is
no doubt but what great good resultH
to all the exhibitors at every Fair, the
premiums being only a small part of
the benefits. A great many farmers
and stock breeders count only what
prizes are won, but this should not be
the case, because the greatest benefits
are obtained In advertising what you
have for sale and in meeting with the
progressive men from other sections
of the State and obtaining their Ideas
and seeing the results of their
methods. The management of the Fair
is making every effort to secure new
exhibitors. Arrangements have been
made by which freight charges are
paid on all exhibits from this State,
free stalls are provided for stock, and
free bedrooms are furnished all ex
hibitors who are willing to stay on the I
grounds all the time. * Numerous res
taurants on the grounds furnish meals
at all hours of the day or night at
reasonable prices, and feed for stock
Is delivered right at the stalls at the
regular market prices, and besides,
there are officers who look after all
exhibitors and see that every one is
satisfactorily located. All exhibits
may be shipped directly to the
grounds, for there Is ample side track
provision for all the cars. Solid cars
should be billed "Secretary State
Fair, Columbia, S. C, care Fair
Ground Tracks," and they will be
rushed right through to destination.
Some exhibitors may think they can
not make their entries properly, but
Secretary Lsve will take pleasure In
giving all necessary aid, provided ap
plication Is made to him prior to 10
?'clock Tuesday morning, as the Fair
opens at that hour and no entries can
be made later. All exhibitors of live
stock should arrive on the grounds not
later than Friday or Saturday before
the Fair, so as to get the stock quiet
after shipping and get them to eating
well before being put into the show
The premium list is very liberal this
year, and it is to be haped that the
management will n?eet with success
in inducing a very large number of
new exhibitors to attend the Fair,
so that the Fair will become repre
sentative of every section of the State
and of all the resources of Carolina.
Information and premium lists will be
cheerfully supplied upon application
In {person or by letter to Secretary
Love at Columbia. Let all Who are
thinking of exhibiting, or who have
fine products or stock, make up*thelr
minds right now to exhibit, write for
a premium list and then make their
entries at once. Join the procession
that is making this State one of the
best in the country.
First, soak the corn or bunion in
warm water to soften it; then pare it
down as closely as possible without
drawing blood and apply Chamber
lain's Pain Balm twice daily, rubbing
vigorously for five minutes at each ap
plication. A corn plaster should bo
worn a few days to protect it from tho
shoe. As a general liniment for
sprains, bruises, lameness and rheu
matism, Pain Balm is uneqtialed. For
salo by Laurens Drug Co. and Dr. B.
F. Posey.
Tills Will Bo Truly u Greater Stato

Amplo Arrangements.
The fitnte Agricultural and Mechani
cal Society purchased one hundred
acres of level land in the southern
part of Columbia last spring on which
to hold its annual South Carolina State
Fairs. This change was made neces
sary because the old grounds were too
small to accommodate the large num
ber of exhibitors and visitors who an
nually attended the great fairs, and
tho buildings were no longer suitable
for the purposes for which they were
built. On the new grounds there Is
room for everything and for every
body, and they are more conveniently
situated to the transportation lines
than the old grounds were. The dis
tance is less than a half mile from the
new union depot, and the grounds are
reached by several fine roads and by
the street car lines,'and no trouble will
Be experienced in handling the large
crowds that are sure to visit Columbia.
Visitors will find everything brand new
this year. The buildings are all modern
In construction, large, airy, and com
fortable, all one story, with numerous
exits and wide aisles. One building Is
devoted entirely to the handiwork of
women, and Is set apart from the other
buildings so that the fair sex may en
Joy themselves without interruption.
Another building is devoted to the agri
cultural exhibits and Implements, and
another to the commercial exhibits.
Then, the poultry building occupies a
very prominent location and is very
large and roomy. The live stock barns
are so arranged that all visitors can
safely and conveniently pass through
all of them and see all tho stock at any
time, and the management specially
requests that visitors avail themselves
of this opportunity.
The regulation mile race track Is lo
cated in the southern part of the
grounds, and Ib a beauty. The races
may be viewed from the Fair grounds
if it be preferred to do so, but a large,
comfortable grand stand Is located at
the finish of the home stretch, where
the races can be viewed to much better
advantage and with more comfort. The
quarter stretch is not separated from
the grand stand, as was the case on
the old track, but all are combined
under one inclosure, thus Increasing
the social part of the meet.
The Midway or Pike Is located near
the main entrances, and will be filled
with all the modern shows and attrac
tions, with wares from very part of
the world, and with people from every
part of the world. The uthletic
grounds are located Just opposite the
Midway, on tho other side of tho
entrance. Here will be played two
excellent games of football during
Fair week.
The railroads have offered very
cheap rates on account of the first
Greater State Fair, and thoy will run
most convenient schedules from all
sections of the State. In view of all
the attraatlonB that have been ar
ranged for, there Is no risk In saying
that the large cr*wd of last year will
be doubled this fall, and that this
great gathering will be more easily ac
commodated 'han in any former yenr.
Every one ought to attend the only
big fair and social event in the State.
A well known (raveling man who
visits the drug trado says no has often
heard druggists inquire of customers
who asked for a cough medicine)
whether it was wanted for a child or
for an adult, and if for a child thoy al
most invariably recommended Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy. Tho reason
for this is that they know thero is no
danger from it and that it always cures.
There is not tho least, danger in giving
it, and for coughs^ colds and croup|it is
unsurpassed. For salo by Laurens
Drug Co ? and Dr. B. F. Posey.
