shown at the tconvention:
* The Chesterfield County Con
vention was notable for its repre
senta'tive attendance, being comn
pbsed of leading men from prac
tically every -club in the county.
It'.was even more notable for its
unity and enthusiasm. especially
ia its action endorsing the candi
* dacy of Hon. W. F. Stevenson
for Congress. Partisan lines
which cut deeply mnto his vote in
this county two years ago have
been obliterated and a united
county is behind him, and the en
thusiasm shown on the subject
on last Mvonday warrants the
prediction that his majority in
this county will be the greatest
ever given a candidate here who
had an opponent." Cheraw
Chroniele, May 4.
"It is said that Chesterfield
~County is united as she has not
been in thirty years before. This
uuity means much for the peace
of the county during the coming
campaign and it may mean much
more. It may mean that Ches
terfield county will furnish the
next representu-ive from the
Fifth Congressional District to
the United States Congress.
"'If the enthusiasm for the
Hon. WV. F. Stevenson manifest
ed at this convention represents
the sentiment of the people of
-the county, Mr. Stevenson ic sure
of every vote to be cast i. this
county next fall---and that wvill

The first forward ste) for a
tter and cleaner town is to get
I of the flies.
Let us all work together for
e down fal! of the deadly.
rm laden fly which causes
,000 baby deaths annually.
Have you sge the wonderful
trap which is on exhibition at
r. J. L. Bryson's residence? It
worth going around to see, for
has already proved its value as
fly trap. It is made of a bar
4, both heads of which are re
oved. A yaid wide strip of
ire screen is cut to form a cone
hose base covers the end of the
,rrel hoop, the apex being about
i inch in diameter. This is set
to barrel. apex up. Next the
)p hoop is removed and fitted
ver with the screen, forming a
d snugly fitted, but readily
amoved, for emptying out
les. The barrel is then set upon
board platform, with two inch
locks to raise edges to admit
ies. Bait; sweetened water,
rown sugar, a fish head, any
ing not stick enough to hold
ie flies, is placed on the plat
)rm. Flies swarm to the bait,
nd after feeding or when dis
irbed will attempt to escape by
ising to the light, when they
ass through small hole in top of
creen cone and are trapped. As
e presence of the flies in the
arrel attracts others, it is not
mptied until a day's quantity
re caught, when they are all
illed by pouring boiling water
ver them, and they are dumped
ut by removing the lid and in
erting the barrel. Of all the
iultitude of patented and com
iercial fly killers placed on the
iarket. in the last dozen years,
his is by far the most effective,
nd they are so inexpensive. The
letter Winnsboro club is trying
ard to have a fly-free town, and
7e ask that you make an inspec
ion of this fly trap, and be con
inced that it is what we need.

This applies to every line of busi

One of the most successful ad
vertisers in America today is L
T. Cooper. the manufacturer o
the medicine, Tanlac. On on
occasion Mr. Cooper said, "Ho
air will put a balloon up, but i
won't keep it there." When
offered Tanlac to the world some
thing over a year ago I did s(
with the firm conviction that
was offering to the people,th
best and purest proda6t-of it
kind on the Americar-market to
day and I did no I 'sitate to ex
-end'ast sums for advertising
because'K Krew the more th<
people kne' about it the mor<
they would buy it.
The success of the preparatiot
was immediate, and the people
everywhere were quick to recog:
nizeits tenuine merit and woe
derful curative powers. I have
never claimed Tanlac to be
"cure all"~ or that it would per
form unheard of wonders but ]
stated facts-stated them in 2
straight-forward and businese
likegvay and in a manner that
has commanded confidence in the
conservative claims set forth.
Underlying these claims has
been real value not from a dol
lars and cents point alone. but
frpm health as well. The phe
nominal success the preparatiion
has now achieved is familiar tC
everyone. No matter where you
go Tanlac is a household word.
It has brought a new romance tc
the modern business worid. It
is a story of an acceptance and
appreciation of merit never be.
fore obtained by a proprietary
medicine. Conservative busi
ness men to whom the actual
figures of the production of Tan.
la have been presented, have
scouted them untii the prooff was
The production of Tanlac now
stands at the rate of almost 5,
000,0000 bottles per year, or to
be more ccrrect 4, 8000, 000. The
sale of 1,000,000 bottles during
the first nine nmonths probably
exceeded any record ever before
made by a proprietary medicine.
Through the Atlanta office
alone approximately 400.000 bot
ties have been sold and distribut
ed since December 1st, and the
South alone now requires over
1,000,000 battles per year.
These enormous sales mean but
ne thing and that is merit. One
bottle is sold in a neighborhood
through advertising, but ten
more are sold after the first bot
te produces results. People are
always willing to tell about their
ailments, but they are more than
willing to till otters of any medi

thing they can't keep to them
