THE LARGEST CIRCULATION IN
A man is called selfish, not for pur
su ing his own good but for neglecting
President Taft has averaged more
than six speeches a day for the past
41 days, rivaling the Hon. William
Jennings Bryan In volubility.
A Ninety Six farmer has made 100
bushels of corn per acre this year at a
cost of 30 cents per bushel. Even were
the cost twice as great it would be
cheaper to make corn at home than to
ship it from the West,
The Advertiser is pleased to see that
Commissioner of Agricultura E. J. Wat
son is growing in popularity with the
maises of the people. This shows that
his efforts in their behalf are being ap
In spite of the earnest protest of the
press and a large portion of Charles
ton's citizenship, it appears now that
the race course will be established in
that city. A commission has already
been granted the promoters by the sec
retary of state. The legislature should
take a hand in s matter and outlaw
the racing'and gambling as has been
done in Florida.
Need Grows Greater.
Judging from the number of embry
onic cotton picking machines that have
been announced by the press recently,
every individual who possesses a modi
cum of inventive genius has concentra
ted his energies upon perfecting a me
chanical device for gathering in the
6taple. Happy day it will be when
some of the devices now in embryo
are pronounced a success from a practi
cal standpoint. As the days become
shorter and Jack Frost approaches near
er the need for the machine grows
Congressman J. 0. Patterson.
Barnwell county is not alone in the
loss sustained through the death of
former Congressman J. O. Patterson.
During the three terms in which he
served this district in congress he made
his value felt as a friend and servant
of the people. He was active, alert,
faithful and conscientious in the dis
charge of every duty. Congressman
Patterson was no respector of persons.
The humblest citizen in his district re
ceived the same kindly consideration at
his hands as did those in high position.
He had many warm personal friends
throughout Edgefield county who are
deeply s?ddened by his death.
The Management Encouraged.
In providing adequate equipment for
the advantageous display of exhibits
In the proper management of the en
terprise in all of its intricate details
In the performance of duty by the faith
ful superintendents of the several de
partments-In the order and deport
ment of those who attended-In the ful
filment of every promise and pledge
made by the management-In the va
riety and quality of the exhibits in all
departments, the fair was unquestiona
bly a success.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
very inclement weather curtailed the
attendance, the management should be,
and is, encouraged as to the future.
The people generally are taking more
interest in the fair and will, we feel
confident, give increasing support and
co-operation from year to year.
The Edgefield county fair of 1912
must be the best county fair in the
HON. T. E. WATSON
(Continued from page 1.)
As to the failure of prohibition
to prohibit, Mr. Watson said our
statutes are filled with prohibitory
laws that are violated, yet no one
would be so foolish as to say these
laws should be repealed because they
are violated. Mr. Wats?n !said the
thunders of Sinai have sounded
down through the ages "Thou shalt
not kill," and just as the first man
born of woman killed the second,
so have men continued to kill each
other. They will keep on killing
each other but no one, would advo
cate a repeal of the law prohibiting
Discussed The Tariff.
Instead of protecting the trusts
by tariff legislation favorable to
them, Mr. Watson advocates taxing
the luxuries of the wealthy class,
such as silks, satins, diamonds and
liarle, instead of levying a tax on
the every-day necessities of the poor
man. Mr. Watson says it is possible
for the working man in England to
live without paying a cent of taxes
by doing without foreign products,
but not so in this country. Mr. Wat
son advocates an inheritance tax so
as to reach the accumulated for
tunes of the North as they pass
from one generation to another.
Advocates White Man's Government.
Mr. Watson said: "lam fora
white marrs government. I have
made mistakes in the past, and after
mature thought I am convinced that
we ought to treat the colored man
absolutely right as an individual but
give him no political rights. Let the
people of the NortL understand that
wherever the white man plants hi*,
foot to live he rulys or dies. The
time has come when the South must
assert herself and come again into
her own, letting the North know
that we are going to settle this
question in our own way."
Defended Position on Fcrio-a Missions.
While in the act of taking his
seat, after sp .aking for more than
an hour, Mr. Watson yielded to ap
peals from the audience to continue
He resumed by defending his po
sition on foreign missions. Mr.
Watson says he is a missionary Bap
tist, having united with the church
at the age of fourteen. He further
stated that he favors giving the gos
pel to the heathen nations but not in
the way that the Protestant church
es are pursuing. While being in
sympathy with missions, he says
charity should begin at home. Mr.
Watson opposes paying missionaries
the salaries which they are now re
ceiving while the need for more
money is great at home.
Made Friends in Edgefield.
On this question, as on prohibi
tion and possibly others, the audi
ence was divided in sentiment. The
views of some co-incided with Mr.
Watson's, while the convictions of
others were at variance with his.
However, the best of order and feel
ing prevailed throughout the hour
and a half. Every individual in the
great throng seemed eager to catch
every word of this distinguished
Mr. Watson made friends in
Edgefield. Everybody wa? glad of
the opportunity to hear him.

Thia is The Case With Many
Too many citizens are handicap
ped with bad backs. The unceasing
pain causes constant misery, making
work a burden and stooping or lift
ing .iii impossibility. The back
aches at night, preventing refresh
ing rest and in the morning is stiff
and lame. Plasters and liniments
may give relief but cannot reach the
cause. To eliminate the pains and
aches you must cure the kidneys.
Doan's kidney pills are for sick

C., says: "Last year I had an at
tack of kidney complaint. When
ever I caught cold it settled in ray
kidneys and caused pain and lame
ness all through ray back. I often
found it almost impossible to stoop
and 1 lost much sleep at night, ow
ing to pains and other kidney dis
orders. Finally, Doan's kidney pills
were recommended to me anc11 be
gan using them. They did rae a
world of good, driving away the
backache and improving my health.
Of late I have again used Doan's
kidney pills to great advantage. I
endorse this remedy for the beuefit
of other kidney sufferers."
