LARGEST CIRCULATION IN
EDGEFIELD COUNTY.
Wednesday, July 29th.
It neves occurs tc fools that merit
and good tortuue are closely united
GOETHE
* _?
Less than 30 days to the first primary.
The war cloud 'that overshadows
Europe is larger than a man's hand.
The European war has already
caused wheat to advance eight or nine
cents per bushel.
The pardon record of the past three
years is giviner South Carolina almost
as much notoriety as the wholesale
graft of the old State dispensary.
Now that they have peace in Mexico
they do not know what to do with it.
Finally "Uncle Sam" will have to take
Mexico under his permanent protection.
Should England become involved in
the war between Austria and Persia
the cotton growers of the South and
all lines of business would feel the
effects of this war.
If you did not place your name on
the Democratic club and through the
failure to do so you are' debarred the
privilege of voting, you have no one to
blame except yourself.
Within a few day3 it will be known
how many votera have enrolled over
the State for the primary. The figures
will give some idea of what per cent
of the total vote two years ago was
fraudulent.
Sufficient rewards have been offered
for the apprehension of the villain who
attempted to kill Dr. McIntosh of
Columbia to induce the leading detec
tive agencies in the country to place
their best men in the field.
Talk up the Edgefield High School.
While the first year was a success, let's
make the second year a greater success.
The faculty has been strengthened and
there is no reason why our High School
should not be one of the very best in
the State.
The Governor posed Tuesday in
Columbia for th" moving picture
machine. But we do not believe the
"movies" can save him from defeat.
It will require votes to elect him and
, reports from ail parts of South Caro
lina state that he is losing ground every
day.
The treasury department in Wash
ington is not disturbed by the large
amount of gold that is going abroad on
account of the declaration of war in
Europe. "Uncle Sam" still has in cir
culation and stored in his vaults nearly
two billion dollars in gold. That is
enough to keep the wolf from the door.
Call at the office of clerk of court
and ask Mr. Cogburn to ?show you the
photograph of the legislature of 1868
which Senator Tillman recently sent
him. By sending these'photographs to
every clerk of court in the State Sen
ator Tillman has rendered an in
valuable service to his constituency.
Spartanburj's Good Fortune
The Journal and the people of Spartan- |
burg are to be congratulated upon the
removal of Mr. Harold Booker from .
Greenville to the "City of Success" to
reside. For the past five years Mr.
Booker has edited the Greenville Pied
mont, increasing very largely the in
fluence and prestige of the excellant y
paper. Hereafter he will labor as faith
fully for the continued success of The
Journal of Spartanburg. Mr. Booker "
- is a man of force and a writer of un- z
jsual versatility. H?3 leading edito
rials, together with his pointed 'para
rraphs, never fail to interest the
ueople, increasing the popularity of
the paper which he edits. Congratula
ron* to The Journal upon its good
fortune!
Maintain Your Equilibrium
Do not lose your head. While this is
a very homely expression, yet it is al
together apropos at this time. As the
campaign draws to a close many men
who are greatly enthused over politics
are liable to make remarks during poli
tical discussions that will give offense.
In the years gone by we have known
near neighbors and worse still, men
closely related, to engage in heated
political discussions in which offensive
language was used, causing an estrange
ment that has not bien fully healed to
this day.
How foolish this is. Inj your sober
moments think seriously and take a
broadview of the situation. Nine poli
ticians out of ten care absolutely
nothing for their followers after they
have received their votes. The office
seekers may pretend to stand first, last
and always for the people's interests,
but what they are after primarily is
a sufficient number of votes to elect
them. Why should you sacrifice
the pleasant relations of friends and
those akin by blood in order to aid the
self-seeking politician? Furthermore
the average politician is short lived.
He may be in position to render you
temporary assistance now but soon
he will be cut clown like the grass of
the field and another will 'come upon
the scene, while you must live in the
?.ame community with relatives and
friends for the remainder of your earth,
ly sojourn.
Consider well before sacrificing long
scanding lies in order to serve some
office seeker. Always maintain your
equilibrium, especially in matters pei
taining to politics.
Spent Very Pleasant Day.
After worshipping in the Baptist
church IL Johnston last Sunday
morning the editor of The Advertis
er and Mrs. Mimd spent the remain
der of the day in the home of Mr.
aud Mrs- P. C. Stevens. Have you
ever wondered why Mr. Stevens is
such a Brobdinag or giant in statue'-'
Well, it is because he has such a
big heart that it requires a big bodr
io house it. And , Mrs. Stevens is
likewise noted for her goodness and
greatness of heart. She has been for
a number of years the leading spirit
in the woman's missionary work of
the Ridge association. This is but
une of a number of commendable
enterprises i. which she is engaged.
Mrs. Stevens is also interested in
the county fair and will work for
its success. After discussing the
"burning issues" in particular and
politics in general, incidentally se
lecting and electiug a ticket from
coroner to the L'nited States senate,
Mr. Stevens and the writer took a
stroll over his splendid farm of 8U
acres, which is so valuable that,
like city lots, it will bell for so
much per front foot instead of so
much per acre. Mr. Stevens has the
ri nest cotton that we have seen,
competent judges having estimated
that much of it will make two bales
to the acre. His corn in spite of
lack of rain is also very line. Had
it not suffered, every acre of his
held would have rivalled some of
the "pet" acres of a few years ago.
Mr. Stevens is a zealous advocate
of planting the best seed obtainable,
whether it be cotton, corn, wheat,
oats or simply sor? hum. He pur
chased some of Mr. D. R. Coker's
prize corn and rye. From half
bushel of rye, planted on about an
acre, he has threshed 2i> and one
half bubhels.
Mr. Stevens is gradually equip
ping his farm in the most up-to-date
manner. He has orx'i of the best
barns in the county, it being con
structed from the material in the
old Harmony church. He will soon
install a complete water system for
his house and premises.
COstly Treatment.
I was troubled with constipation
and indigestion and spent hundreds
of dollars for medicines and treat
ment, writes C H Hines, of Whit
low, Ark. "I went to a St. Louis
hospital, also to a hospital in New
Orleans but no cure was effected.
Un returning home I began taking
Chamberlain's tablets, and worked
right along. I used them for some
lime and am now all right." Sold 1

Significant Remark
When the candidates for the senate
began discussing the asylum investiga
tion one of the contemporaries had a
headline: "Candidates have got to
asylum at la?t. "-Greenville News.
The patriotic calamity howlers who
were lately so fearful that the Wilson
government would have to borrow
money to meet current expenses will of
course be pleased to note that the
Treasury comes cut ?of the fiscal year
with a* very comfortable surplus
even when the income tax has been
working little mme than half time.
Farm & Ranch.
. Billions Out of (?round
Latest Government estimates place
the total valuation of the year's crops
above ten billion dollars. This is more
than the total real estate assessment
of any State, not excepting New York,
.'.ome countries which consider them
selves important cannot muster, all
told,, such a sum of worldly goods. A
country which takes so much out of
the ground in one year-not reckoning
products of forest, mine and waters
is some country in a material way. -
Charlotte Observer.
Down on Pistol Toting
We now call for a governor who will
see that the pistol-toting law is enforced
to the letter. Every coward in the
state at present carries a man-of-war
in his hip-pocket, and at the slightest
provocation "pulls" and fires, sure
th'tt an easily obtained pardon will
be forthcoming. We stand ready to
sopport any lawmaker who will have
laws enacted, making pistol-toting an
jffense worth ten years at hard labor.
Show us a dead man in the road, with
i bullet hole over his heart, and we
.viii show you ten men in the crowdy
ibout who are prepared to send other
rictims along the pistol-shot route, and
who really rather hunger for the chance
to "pull."-Marion Star.

used two bottles of it and it gave
me permanent relief," writes B W
