LARGEST CIRCULATION IN
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER, 16, 1912.
The man who lives in vain, lives
worse than in vain. He who lives to
no purpose lives to a had purpose.
"When Greeks joined Greeks, then

Governor Blease has extended execu
tive clemency to 393 cases since he has
been'in office, 226 of this number re- J
ceiving pardons and 197 paroles.
Not a single dollar of corporation
money has been used in conducting the
national D?mocratie campaign. That
is vfny it is so necessary that you con
tribuate as an individual.
Since the football season has opened
the airship casualties will not be so

If the Democrats were only one
tenth part as loyal to their party as the
Greeks are to their mother country,
the coffers of the national treasury
would be constantly overflowing.

Governor Biease acted wisely and
well when he refused to pardon John
J. Jones, the young lawyer who killed
Abe Pearlstine at Branchville a year
ago. This was a very atrocious mur
der and no reasonable ground can be
found upon which to base executive
clemency. The governor has stated
that he may reduce the ten-year sen
According to a recent estimate pre
pared at the request of the governor by
the department of commerce and agri
culture the population of South Caroli
na has increased 35,030 since the 1910
census was taken. Wonder if Edge
field has contributed her quota of this
increase? The figures of the last cen
sus were not very creditable to her. <J
The estimated population of South Car
olina at present is 1,551,430.

Times and Democrat.
Why? When one set of men refuse to
work for a company why hasn't that
company a right to send elsewhere for
men who will work. Suppose a far
mer's cotton pickers walk out of his
field, positively refuse to work for him.
Hasn't this farmer the right to em
. ploy others to work for him? Certainly
: he has. Then, why hasn't a company
'ethe same right?
The County Fair.
The managers feel greatly encourag
ed over the outlook for the fair. Be
sides the splendid exhibits^ of stock,
poultry, field crops, merchandise, art,
faney work and household department,
a first-elass aggregation of shows will
afford pleasant diversion for the great
throng that will attend. The amuse
ment company has an excellent band
that will furnish music throughout each
day of the fair. There is no doubt
about it, unless the weather man
frowns upon us, the Edgefield county
fair will be one of the very best to be
held in the state this fall.
Bear in mind though that every ad
ditional exhibit contributes to the suc
cess of the fair. Will you not have an
exhibit in every department? Look
about the farm, take stock, so to
speak, and you will be surprised at
how many very creditable exhibits you
.can. make. Farmers generally are tak
ing more interest in the fair than in the
past. Can you afford to be left out?
Should Reject Fraudulent Advertise
Just as an honest merchant will re-1
fuse to offer for sale articles for food
that are known to be unsound and there
fore injurious; just as an honest law
yer will refuse to accept a case in
which sharp practice and manu
factured-te8timony must be employed
in order for his client to win, so should
a reputable newspaper refuee to place
before its readers advertisements that
bear fraud, deception and positive in
jury on their very face.
A few day9 ago we were surprised
to see in a leading Piedmont newspaper
an advertisement occupying prime po
sition with a prominent headline some
thing like this: "Liquors Can Now be
Made at Home For Twenty-five Cents
a Quart." The advertisement was at
tractively worded and was calculated
to catch the unwary, such sentences as
these being used: "With a concentra
ted extract a 9mooth and mellow whis
key, liquor or cordial can be made,
saving the liquor dealers' enormous
profit." "With this new method a
quart of delicious and healthful liquor
can be made for 25 cents, equal if rot
better than that sold for four times
The individual who offers this liquid
"gold brick" for sale should be indict
ed ^>y the postal authorities for using]
the mail for fraudulent purposes, and
the publisher who will exploit the so- j
called merits of euch an article of mer- j
ehandise deserves to be severely repri
manded by the thoughtful readers of |
Publishers of newspapers should
draw the line by refusing to accept ad
vertisements of this character, wheth
er the article be represented as a bev
erage, drug or foodstuff. The Adverti
ser will never knowingly be uaed by
conscienceless men who would thus
play upon the'credulity of people. In-j
stead of tempting thoughtless persons
ko purchase fraudulent articles of this
class, a newspaper should warn the
unsuspecting against them.
Missionary Rally at Ebenezer
The missionary rally at the Bap
tist church was a very pleasant and
nspiring meeting, all the denomi
nations joining in heartily as is the
maracteristicot the community and
nade the day one long to be re
membered amongst the church go

it the morning service. He made
i very forceful presentation of his
ivork in China. Mrs. Lake and Mrs.
Snuggs spoke at thc afternoon ses
sion, and in their gentle manner
rave some interesting facts about
,heir part of the work in the for
eign field. A collection of about
?125.00 was raised for the two
ichools of which Mrs. Lake and
tfrs. Snuggs are the principals.
The meeting as a whole was filled

A Horse is Not A Machine
A horse cannot give continuous service. It tires easily and sometimes mast have rest in the middle
of the day.
But the "Hupmobile" is Different.
Always in condition and fresh at the end of the run. It never tires and will take you anywhere, no
natter what the distance. Saud and hills make no difference, nor do muddy roads for .that matter.
The perfect simplicity of the working parts means fewer repairs, less attention-eliminates the
heavy expense bills. A truly economical and efficient car built for the purpose of giving uninterrupt
ed service at low cost of upkeep.
THE DEEPER YOU GO INTO DETAIL THE GREATER
WILL GROW YOUR REGARD
The inside, not the outward appearance of a car, establishes its true value. For this reason, we ask
you not to let your first favorable impression end with your admiration for the graceful design, the
low strong lines, die comfortable upholstery of the l<.i-.:-stroke Kupp "32." We prefer that you go
deeper into the car and examine its motor, transmission and axle construction.
WHAT MAKES PULLING POWER?
First-The relation of piston stroke to cylinder
Second-The design of the motor.
Third-The efficiency of the carburetor.
Fourth-Simplicity of the chassis construction.
Fifth-The degree to which friction is reduced
Sixth-The weight of the car.
LET US SHOW YOU
How these essentials have been accomplished in
the Hupp "32."
First-The stroke is neither too long nor too
short, but in ratio to the bore is as 1.7 is to 1.
Seoond-The cylinders of the motor are oast
en bloc; the valves at the side are protected from
dust and dirt. Three liberal crank shaft bearings
are provided to preclude the possibility of undue

Bosch magneto, 105 inch wheelbase, 32x3i
inch tires. Roadster, $900.
Third-The carburetion is absolutely automat
ic, insuring correct mixtui j at all speeds and un
der all loads without adjustment.
Fourth-The chassis is clean of every co inpli
cation: the motor, clutch and transmission are a
compact weight-saving unit, permanently aligned
and dispensing with a shaft and universal joint
between clutch and transmission.
Fifth-Friction is reduced to the limit by the
finest ball and roller bearings; there is but one
universal joint between transmission and full
floating rear axle, giving a practically straight
line drive and the least possible lost motion in the
transmission of power.
Sixth-The weight of the car ?9 from two to
three hundred pounds under that of equal size
Each of these points is of unusual advantage;
collectively they enable the motor to give its
maximum power and set the Hupp "33" apart
and above cars of its size and price.
