l: will be remembered, remarks
the Anderson Mail, that several years
ago steps were taken an 1 ' election
held on tho question of forming a
n ?w County out of portion -. . f Ander-1
soil and Greenville, with Williamston
as the county s.at. Tho election fail
ed to carry. The Willhiiimton people
tiro thinking of reopening the mat
ter for a new county to be called
Piedmont, with practically ', ? same
boundaries as was proposed and sur
veyed when the effort was math- be.
The following from the Wllliam
ston Advertiser this week tells about
"Without any special activity on
the part" of anyone there are a good
?many people throughout this soctlon
commencing to talk of the feasibility
of forming a new county to be cou?

and tho lower part of Greenville Coun
ty, either similar to or in a modiflod
form to thai which was proposed ami
attcmplod some years ago. As boforo
stated Cure has been no individual
or collective effort made, therefore
no preliminary steps taken whatever,
but the statement is generally made
that large numbers of people who once
were opposed to the idea are now
favorable to the plan.
"if the idea should materialize ami
he sucoofssful, tho new county would
embrace some of the finest atld richest
sections of both Anderson and Green
ville counties, triul in the amount of
population and valuation of taxable
property it would class with the best

The minister brought for his first
message a most interesting and in
structive exposition of the 32nd Psalm
II.? said that the Psalm c.r n verses
wns divided into three sections; the
Ilrst four verses showing tho sinner
under conviction of sin unconfesscd;
tho second section ?f three verses
showing tho sinner forgiven and tin
last tour verses setting forth Cod's
care of the sinner accepted.
Tito spenkor said that sin Is tho root
of evil in human life, the "missing of
the mark" of Clod's perfect holiness!
Transgressions arc the wrong deeds
and thoughts that spring from Mils
evil root, and iniquity is the unbal

You ladies, who have pale faces, sallow complexions,
dark circles under eyes, drawn features and tired, worn
out expressions, you need a tonic.
The tonic you need is Cardtll, the woman's tonic.
It is the best tonic for women, because its Ingredients
are specifically adapted for women's needs. They act <>n
the womanly organs and help to give needed strength and
vitality to the worn-out womanly frame.
Cardui is a vegetable medicine. It contains no min
erals, no iron, no potassium, no lime, no glycerin, no dan
gerous, or habit-forming drugs of any kind.
It is perfectly harmless and safe, for young and old to use.
The Woman's Tonic
"After, my doctor had done all he said he could for me,"
writes Mrs. Wm. Hilliard, of Mountainburg, Ark., "I took ( ai
dui, on the advice of a friend, and it helped me so much.
"Before taking Cardui, 1 had suffered bom female
troubles for five years, but since taking it, I am in good health.
"I think there is some of the best advice in your book
that I ever saw." Your druggist sells Cardui. Try it.
