Mr. Editor: The cold, the snow,

are yet living in good health, able
to work and enjoy three good meals
Our hills have been beautiful for
the last ten days, covered with
peach blooms. The foliage has
just commenced to make its appear

tiful harvest, which will be, if there
is no more killing frost.
Mr. W. S. Middleton and W. M.

There has been very little farm
work done. Messrs. Middleton and
Rich are ordering car after car of
guano for the farms, which is a sign
that we expect to plow after awhile.
Messrs. W. S. Middleton, and
H. E. Bunch each purchased a fine
mule this week. We have been
working the roads and have more
to do, unless we are stopped by the
officer of the law.
I am proud of the stand you take
in regard to the rotten dispensary.
I always thought you were a man
of back-bone, now I know it. Give
rae a man with a back-bone as big
as a tent pole, who is not afraid or
ashamed to denounce evil. I de
spise a double back action, revolv
ing turn somer-sault man. I endorse
Dr. Jeffries' position. If you are
going in to make money out of evil,
why not take all in? There are
other and cheaper evils that bring
in a handsome revenue. The idea
of investing a dollar to make ten
cents. Why not give the dollar in
stead of throwing it away? I can
safely say that 99 per cent of Clark's

WORMAN. H.".BUTCH, President;
ductor about the hardships of a
conductor's life. He said ''it's not
near so hard since Georgia passed
the prohibition law. No drunken
crowds to handle." I said, do
you think prohibition beneficial?"
"Why certainly'' he said. Icare not
what anyone says, there is not one
tenth the liquor drank now as here
tofore. Of course there is no hope
foran old sot, but you can no more
keep a crowd of drunkards than
you can a standing army without a
recruiting office. The old sot will
soon pass away. It is the young
men, the hope of our country that
I am anxious about. The dispensa
ry is the finest recruiting office that
it is possible to establish, which no
one can deny. We will meet them
at the ballot box. I havp confidence
in the manhood of Edgefield county.

Danger In Delay.
Kidney Diseases Are Too Dan
gerous For Edgefield Peo
ple to Neglect.
The great danger of kidney
troubles is that they get firm hold
before the sufferer recognizes them.
Health is gradually undermined.
Backache, headache, nervousness,
lameness, soreness, lumbago,.urina
ry troubles, dropsy, and Bright's
disease, follow as the kidneys get
worse. Don't neglect your kidneys.
Help the kidneys with the reliable
and safe remedy. Doan's kidney
pills, which has cured people right
here in Edgefield.
Mrs. M W Padgett, Edgefield,
S. C. says: "Off and on for several
years I have used Doan's kidney
pills and I know them to be an ex
cellent medicine. When kidney
trouble made its appearance in my
case ray back began to pain me and
I felt tired and restless. I lost much
sleep and it was not until I began
taking Doan's kidney pills that I
found relief. They are the best kid
ney medicine I know of and I glad
ly recommend them for the benefit
of other kidney sufferers."
