made its appearance and is
ready for the fray. They can
be exterminated, however, by
mixing one ounce of Paris
green in three pounds of flour
and sifting this on the pota
toes. The Southern Cultiva-)

there is no danger of poison

be done immediately after the
first bug is seen, for they can
soon ruin the entire patch.

Remember that designing

the acreage as great as possi

THE BRADFIELD REGULATOR CO
Solicitor J. Wm. Thurmond, of ?dgefield, announces "
he will be a candidate for Congress this year. This y
gressional district comprises the counties of Beaufort, Hr
ton, Bamberg, Barnwell, Aiken,Saluda and Edgefield. ? "
The position of congressman is a very important one,
the record of every candidate ought to be known by the
pie, so they can the better judge of the fitness of the aspii
We give below a sketch of Mr. Thurmond's life :
J. Wm. Thurmond is a son of George W. Thurmond a'n?f
Mary Thurmond, nee Mary Felter. His father has passed
the four score mark and is the veteran of two wars. The
subject of this sketch was born in Merriwether Township,
Edgefield county, South Carolina, on May ist, 1862. His
early education was entirely under his mother, who was anx
ious to have him educated. He entered Curryton Higfj
school in 1876, which he attended for several sessions under
the management of Prof. A S Townes and Rev. Hugh F.
Oliver, respectively. He has been a member of the Baptist
church since boyhood. After attending Curryton Acade
my he taught school and later attended South Carolina Coif
lege one sesson, having entered the Sophomore class. In
1887 he taught school and read law, entering the law offic?
of Sheppard Bros., at Edgefield C. H., in October of that
year. In January, 1888, he was admitted to the bar. Th?
Supreme court in admitting his class said: "Fourteen of the
eighteen applicants have been admitted, ten passed credita
ble examinations and the manuscripts of fojr are so excel
lent as to deserve special mention by this court; they are
those of J. Wm. Thurmond and E. H. Folk, of Edgefield;
Youmans, of Columbia, and E, H. Herndon, of Walhalla."
There was a heated contest in December, 1S88, among a
number of lawyers for the attorneyship of Edgefield county,
which resulted in a victory for the subject of this sketch, he
having received all three votes of the County Commission
ers. This was his first appearnnce in politics. In 1S94 he
was elected to the Legislature by a large majority. He was
a candidate for the Solicitorship of thc Fifth Judicial Circuit
in 1896 and defeated the incumbent by 874 votes.
When in the House he was a very active member, and as
one of a committee of three made a minority report against
the finding of bonds claimed by Samuel Lord as receiver of
the State Bank, and defeated said claim by-a vote of 79 to
29. saving the state sixty thousand dollars.
He nominated the Hon B. R. Tillman for the United
States Senate, also nominated rion. Ira B.Jones lor associate
justice of the Supreme court.
The result of the war left his parents with very little prop
erty, and not over fifty dollars was ever paid out for his
education except what he himself made.
As Solicitor he has never had a single indictment quashed,
or demurrer to one sustained.
Asa citizen, Solicitor Thurmond is a good neighbor, a
liberal and progressive man; and as a lawyer it is well
known that no case suffers in his hands; he is among the
first of the lawyers of thc Edgefield bar, one of the strongest
in the state. Beside, he is not the lawyer to charge for
some little advice on some trivial matter, and many poor peo
ple can testify to his gratuitous services. As a public officer
he has discharged with ability, firmness, success and satis
faction, the trusts committed to his care. Having been a
farmer and plowed many a day himself and being a member
of a family of honest and industrious farmers, his sympathies
are with the farmers and thc laboring people; however, he
would do no man an injustice for any other man.
Mr. Thurmond is an active, progressive worker in every
undertaking, and if he is elected to Congress, this district can
confidently expect its full quota of all governmental advan
tages, appropriations, etc. ' _,_
In December ot 1899, tue subjecT ?TtT??s ?"ketch
Miss Gertie Strom, a daughter of the late Dr, J. H. Strong
and a sister of Hon. W. A. Strom.
Mr. Thurmond has always been a bond fighter and he
saved much for the state and has done much "for certain
townships in this county and Saluda and in other sections of
the state to relieve them of railroad bonds where no rail
road had been constructed.
His record shows that he works for, and secures practical
results, and beside being an able lawyer is a successful busi
ness man, and aman who will not fool or deceive you, and
is just and reliable. The people of this district will have no
regrets f they elect this man to Congress.
