-man who follows the dictates oi

principle above policy-A man
who seeks to do righteyen though

tact with just such a man in the
person of one of Edgefield's coun
' ' "ty officials.
As the writer entered a certain
office ? few days ago on business,
we-heard a man, who was in the
.act.of drawing a bottle from his
pocket, ask the official for permis
sion to drink in said office. The
official courteously, but in no un
certain terms, declined to grant
the request. The mau was not
offended, yet he seemed confused
and humiliated as he pasBed out,
for the denial, though not intended
as euch, was received by him as a

Perish the thought that a couoty

? shall be a rendezvous for thosf
who drink and carouse. Let them
be''couducted upou the same plane
as are most private offices.

A Statement From 3fr. W. H. Bar
ling, Cashier of the Farmers
To The Public: Whereas,
charges have been mad? and cir
culated that The Farmers Baut
of Edgefield, S. C., was re?pousi
ble for the shortage fouud in tbe
Treasurer's office in this county,
I deem it due to the public a d to
the bank and to myself, who had
the transactions with the treasur
er, to say that the charges made
have-no foundation in fact, justice
and truth. At no time have any
warrants drawn on the treasurer
and paid by said bank been sur
rendered to the treasurer without
giving^him a list of the amounts
of the "warrants, and before he has
ever given me a check for such
paper he has checked off the war
rants with the list. No error has
ever been delected by the bank or
by the treasurer in any traosact
ion between the two. In fact our
transactions with the treasurer
have had such a system of check
ing against them that errors would
abow up at the time without any
In this matter, I desire to say
that The Farmers Bank courtE
honest inves'igatiou., and I join it

Wounds, Bruises and Barns.
By applying an antiseptic dress
ing to wounds, bruises, burns and
like injuries before inflammation
sets in, they may be healed with
out maturation and in about one
third the time required by the old
treatment. This is the greatest
discovery and triumph of modem
surgery. Chamberlain's Pain Balm
acts on this same principle. It ia
an antiseptic and when applied
to such injuries, causes them to
heal very quickly. It also allays
the pain and soreness and prevents
auy danger of blood poisoning.
Keep a bottle of Pain Balm in

time and money, not to mention
tho inconvenience and suffering
such injuries entail. For sale by

Edgefield, S. C.
Dear Sir: But few of the men
who sell the .hundred different
paints in the market know much
about them. All Devoe agents have
a state chemist's c rtificate telling
just what it's made of; they know
a good deal, not only about Devoe
but the rest; we see that they do.
We buy every paint, that has any
sale, and analyze it. Our agent
fi?ds out all about it.
When we know what a paint is
made-of, we know how it will act;
we know how fur. it goes, and how
long it weais.
Devoe is the standard; call it
100. The best of the rest is about
75; the worst about 25; the rest
But the men, who sell them,
don't know auy better. They know
what the maker tails them. That
is: they know that he tells thtm.
They don't know whether ho tells
them Ibe iruth or not.
The business is not conducted
on knowledgs; the less they know,
the more comfortable they are.
