South Carolina seems to be over
run with shows, circuses and car
nivals this fall as never before,
. which is an unmistakable indication
that prosperity is abroad - in the
Thirteen may be looked upon by
superstitious persons as- being an
unlucky tiumber, but who ever
, heard of a cotton seller objecting
t to those two little figures when thej'
represented the "top o' the market.''
In a recent advertisement exploit
ing the merits of his merchandise,
a certain distiller spoke of his
"honest goods." Since the investi
gation by the old dispensary com
mission, not a few question whether
there is any ''honest" product of
the "still" on the market.
Convention ol Physicians.
There will be held a convention
in Columbia this week that is of in-,
t ernational importance. Physicians
and specialists from all parts of the
United States will come together
to make a careful study of pellagra.
The new disease has become alarm
ingly prevalent. As there have been
more cases in this state than in al
most all of the other states com
bined, South Carolinians seem to
be easy victims. The reports from
the pellagra convention will be read
w ith great interest
? The State copied Dr. D. A. J.
Bell's article published in The Ad
vertiser concerning the trial of Bill
Broadwater and commented upon
it editorily, commending Dr. Bell's
fearless and uncompromising stand
for law and order. The following is
copied from the State's remarks:
If there were one man in each
township in South Carolina with
the interest in public affairs, with
the jealousy for his State's reputa
tion, and with the moral courage
to declare himself as- is evinced by
Dr. P. A. J.? Bell, of Parksville,
Eclgefield county, there would be a
more wholesome public sentiment
in South Carolina, fewer murders
and more hangings."
Real Friends in the South.
x Northern persons who question
the friendship and kindly feeling
tha.t the southern white people bear
for negroes should have witnessed
a touching scene that occurred in a
Georgia court room last week. A
negro man was indicted for shoot
ing a woman of his own race at a
hot; supper and was found guilty of
mtirder,with recommendation to the,
mercy of the cdurt. The man had
been a trusted and faithful sei vant
foi many years, and a little white
girl only seven years of age appealed
o the presiding judge to "save
arlie." Such ' manifestatiops ,of
pdship are not infrequent in the
Will be Bound Ha?cl and Foot.
! It is alleged, andi; generally ac
cepted as true, that'^a majority of
tte steck in the largo cotton' seed
oil companies that practically con
trol the price, of 6eed is owned by
the fertilizer trust, and unless steps
are taken to check these mills in
their efforts to gobble up "or crush
the small mills, farmers will. in a
few years be bourid hand and foot'
by the fertilizer, trust. * lt matters
not what price is asked for- fertili
zers farmers will have tp'pay it; on
the other hand, if the price of cot
ton *?eed is controlled by a trust
farmers will have to tako what it
offers, there being no competition
to'regulateor-fix the price.
. WoaldvFill a Volume.
The good things that have been
said, and 'hat one can still hear,
about the lute Mr. L. F. Dorn would
611 a large volume. Indeed, we have
never known any man who passed
his entire life in the private walks,
eschewing publicity in every form,
whose death was so universally de
plored or about whom so many
kind and affectionate remarks were
made. Whenever or wherever Mr.
Dora's name is mentioned beauti
ful tributes can be heard. And one
thing is especially notieeable,that in
nearly every eulogy one hears ?ome
kind act, some special service, is
referred to. His life was one of ser
vice, a life worthy of emulation by
every young man in the county.
High Class Entertainment.
The managers of the lyceum
course are to be congratulated upon
the splendid success of their first
entertainment. The Scotch Singers
were so strongly recommended that
our people had their expectations
very high but they were not in the
least disappointed. The violin solos,
readings and impersonations, vocal
solos, duets and quartettes, were all
of the highest order. The second
lyceum attraction will be given in
November and will measure up to
the standard set by the Scotch
A New Back For an Old One- -
How it is Done in Edgefield.
The back aches at times with a
dull, indescribable feeling,1, making
you. weary and restless; piercing
pains shoot across tfie region bf the
kidneys, and again the loins are so
larne to stoop is agony. No use to
rub or apply a plaster to the back
in this condition. You cannot reach
the cause. Exchange the bad back
for a new and stronger one. Follow
the example of this Edgefield citi
? B Gray, barber, Main street,
Edgefield S. C., says: "I am very
willing that my name should be
used as an endorser of Doan's kid
ney pills as I know they are a
valuable remedy. For years I was
bothered by backache which be
came quite severe at times. There
was also a disorder of the kidneys
which caused me additional annoy
ance. A few weeks ago I learned
about Doan's kidney pills and con
cluding to give them a trial, I pro
cured a supply at Peen & Holstein's
drug store. A short time after I be
gan using them, I felt much better
and I am continuing to take them
feeling sure that my trouble will
soon be disposed of."

The Marriage Question. n
A couple of guests at, the Spald- j
in g were seated in the lobby of the
hotel the other day engaged in ear
nest conversations upon the oft-dis
cussed question of marriage, says
the Duluth Tribune. One of them
put it this way: 0
"Before a man's married he's a
dude; after marr?ige he's subdued. "
Before marriage he has no buttons
on his shirt at all. Before marriage
he swears that he would not marry
the best woman on earth; after
marriage he finds that he hasn't."
Thc other was not to be outdone

A Literal Distinction.
Bishop Potter was knownx as
quite a wit, and often took delight
in turning his humor loose on his
associates, but here is an instance
where the joke, although quite un
intentional, was on the bishop. He
was to preach ata certain parish in
the. "West in, the' evening, and the
3ongregation was not a little amused
at the- somewhat ambiguous an
nouncement of their worthy pastor,
'Remember our special service
next Sunday afternoon. The Lord
will be with us during the moraine
services, and Bishop Potter in the
