The searching investigation that
was made into the affairs of some
of the old line insurance compa
nies a year or more ago revealed
many ways in which the money
of the long-Buffering policy hold
ers had been squandered and mis
applied. The president of one of
the old line companies purchased
furniture to the value of $70,0001
for his offices, when $700 would
have furnished them in comfort
and elegance. The furniture is
now being sold and the mony re-j

Texas Farmers Standing Firm.
It will be gratifying to the far
miners of this section who are
standing by th? demands of the
organized cotton growers to know
that their brethren in Texas are
standing shoulder to shoulder
with them in their tiff nts to ad
vance the price of cotton. It is a
fact worthy of special notice that
some of the Texas farmers are not
only holding the staple they pro
duced on their own farms but are
buying cotton from their neigh?
hors who are disposed to sell.
The following which is a por
tion of a letter written by Mr.
Drury J.|Morgan, of Mexia, Texas,
on October the 22nd, to his father,
Mr. E. G. Morgan, Sr., of Faifa,
this county, will be reassuring to
many of the members of the Far
mers' Union of Edgefield county:
"We are having rain, rain. The
ground is thoroughly wet. and
roads are getting bad. Most every
one had finished gathering before
the bad weather set m. I have had
my stock in my field for mor6
than two weeks.
"I have not sold any of my cot
ton have ten bales on hand (made
on 45 acres) and guess I'll have
them until I get 15 cents for it or
we get pretty hungry one. Our
men are sticking like they mean
business out hore.
"We have nearly 2,000 bales in
our warehouse, with lots of it at
home, and there is LO disposition
to take less than the price set by
the union. Some farmers are buy
ing where their neighbors want to
sell. The banks are liberal enough,
and we cdn now if we witt.
"Crops are going to be short
taking the state over, very short.
South Caroliua and Georgia are
the only states that are making
good crops, it seems. 1 he buyers
in Texas are trying to borrow cot
ton by paying $60.00 per bale and
offer to give the farmer the benefit
of any rise in price, but the rack
et don't work. It takes 15 cents to
m J ve a good union man's cotton
' "Financially Texas is iu good
shape *o hold for 12 months if
necessary. Of .course, there has
been considerable cotton sold but
most of those fellows have about
sold out now.
"Everything is moving alouir
nicely now. The boys have begun
to go possum hunting and coon
fights are entertaining some of
them. Dock and geese are going
south but no frost vet, just rain
that's all." '

able management of Mr. T. J.

ommended for everything but if you havekid
ney, liver or bladder trouble it will be found
just the remedy you need, lt has been tested
in so many ways, in hospital work, in private
practice, among the helpless too poor to pur
chase relief and has proved so successful In

Are You Sure Your Kidneys are
Many rheumatic attacks are due
to uric acid in the blood. But the
duty of the kidneys is to remove
all uric acid from the blood. Its
presence there shows the kidneys
are inactive. Don't delay with
"uric acid solvents." You might
go on till doomsday with them,
but unfil you cure the kidneys
you will uever get well. Doau's
Kidney Pills not only removes
uric acid, but cure the kidneys
and then all danger from uric
acid is ended.
Rupert B. Calvo, bookbinder,
employed at The State Publishing
Co., official printers for the State
of South Carolina, living at 1010
Lumber St., Columbia, S. C., says :
"I thought 1 had rheumatism and
treated for it on that belief. I
used all kinds of liniments. The
pain was in my back and hips
clear to the shoulders. The lini
ments did no good and 1 toot to
blood medicines but they did not
help me. I took a loi.g trip in
hopes that the change of climate
might help me. I wa? away for
three months but could see no
change for the better. I heard of
Doan's Kidney Pills and deter
mined to try them, and got a box
it a drug store. They completely
removed the pains cut of my back
and I have not felt a touch of the
old trouble sioco I us.ed them."
