CALLING INSURANCE LOANS.
"As to the insurance situation,
the Darties who have been handl
ing our cotton expressed them
selves as entirely satisfied with
the situation. and I feel no un
easiness. The Laney-Odom bill
has been passed in other States,
and every time this action has
been taken, they have forced its
repeal by the same methods that
the Southeastern is adopting in
South Carolina. It seems that
they wish to force the calling of
large loans and through this
bring sufficient pressure to bear
on the governor to get him to
call an extra session to repeal the
act. Times are different now
from what they have been and
so far as I am concerned, I am
not willing to see a corporation
dictate the policies of the State
of South Carolina. I have here
tofore suggested to the general
assembly a system of State in
surance and if the legislaturE
were called together I,should ad
vocate this policy. This issue ih
made, and certainly the StatE

power in our State governmen
to protect our people agains

companies in every county ir
South Carolina. The farmers o:
Anderson, Oconee, Union, New.

Marlboro and Darlington are nov
getting insurance on their dwel

than 50 cents per $100, while th<
farmers in the other counties o:
the State have been paying $1.2(
per $100. I find in looking ovei
my mail this morning that in thE
county of' Lee orders have beer
issued to raise the county insur

"Another reason why insur
ane is so high in South Carolinm
is t:hat there are too many com
panics and too many agents. I
looks to me as if when a man ha:
failed to make a living in an'
other line of business, he eithe:
goes into politics, selling books
or trying to write insurance. I
would be a good thing if a large
number of these companies woult

ance to earn a living had to gt

tive occupation. In the hearing

~ During the past eight or ten
years mny system has'been in such
a rui down condition that I was
1peculiarly liable to take cold.
These colds would sometimes con
tinue two or three weeks and
would be quickly followed by an
other. Cold would frequently
settle in my limbs, back and
shoulders, causing me intense
pain .of a neuralgaie nature. Dur
ing several winters I have-worn
plasters on my back almost afl
the time. At times I was forced
to arise at night and bathe my
limbs in a strong linimemt to re
lieve the ache. lEven in the sum
mer months Iwas greatly troubled
with colds, which my system
seedied unable to throw off.
When I had a cold I felt miser
able and as if I were about to'
fall to pieces.
"I began taking Tanlac and
took five bottles before I stopped.
Now I enjoy -a freedom from
colds I have not known in years.
Before I took Tanlac I would
catch a fresh cold every pay day,
when I went into the cold pay
1car, and would feel-terrible for a
wekor more. Last week when
I paid off employees no ill effects
came from the exposure, and the
day was very cold.
"For years I was peculiarly ef
fected on my right (side, where
there was a lump which would
swell up and become sore and
painful when I would take cold.
I could not sleep on.that side, but
the lump disappeared while I was
Itaking Tanlac and can now rest
well on that side. I feel splendid
in every way. During the past
,five years I had to stayin at
[nig*ht because I knew I ol
take a severe cold if I went out
S1and be almost.sick, but now I can'
go out at night and go around in
my shir't sleeves without suffer
ing later from cold.
"I have tried many kinds of1
medicines, but failed to get the
least benefit. I have removed in
a very short time while taking
Tanlac a condition which had
1caused me great suffering for
ten years. Your medicine gen
