Infection and Insect Bites Dan
Mosquitoes, flies and other insects,
which breed quickly in garbage
pails, pond of stagnant water, barns,
musty places, etc., are carriers of
disease. Every time they bite you,
they inject poison into your system
from which some dread disease may
result. Get a bottle of Sloan's lini
ment. It is antiseptic and a few
^Jrops will neutralize the infection
?caused by insect bites or rusty naiis.
^Sloan's liniment disinfects cuts,
* bruises and sores. You cannot afford
to be without it in your home. Mon
ey back if not satisfied. Only 25c
at your druggist.
Summer Constipation Dangerous
Constipation in summer time ?6
more dangerous than in the fall,
winter or spring. Tho food you eat
is often contaminated and is more
likely to ferment in your stomach.
Then you are apt to drink much
-cold water during the hot weather,
thus injuring your stomach. Colic,
fever, ptomaine poisoning and other
ills are natural reBults. Po-Do-Lax
will keep you well, as it increases
the bile, the natural laxative, which
rids the bowels of the congested
poisonous waste. Po-Do-Lax will
make you feel better. Pleasant and
effective. Take a dose to-night. ?Oe

I was troubled with constipation
and indigestion and spent hundreds
of dollars for medicine 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 effeoted.
On returning home I began taking
Chamberlain's tablets and worked
right along. I used them for some
time and am now all right. Sold by

Will Clear the Docket.
There are about 15 cases to be
disposed ot* next week, 10 persons
being on bond and five in jail. There
are four murder cases. We ander
stand that Judge DeVore has stat
ed that it is his purpose to hold
court tho entire week in order to
clear the docket. Judge DeVore is
right in taking this position. The
farmers are practically through with
their work now and have more time
to serve as jurors and witnesses in
August than in October. In the past,
some of the judges have been dis
posed to shirk their duty, onl.\ hold
ing court one or two days and then
adjourning because they wanted to
go away lo the mountains or springs.
The people of the county will be
grateful to Judge DeVore for clear
ing the docket in August while they ,

Do our citizens who oppose coin-j
pulsory education realize the fact,
that chere are now 25,000 more ne
gro children in the public schools :
of this state than white children?
'1 his is exactly what the report of !
J. E. Swearingen, state superinten
dent ol' education, shows, and, he
gets his facts and ligures from the
county superintendents. It' a com
pulsory education law was passed it
would be the white children who
would be compelled to attend
school and not the negro children, j
The negro children are already in ,
school and the white children are '<
staying away from school and the'
compulsory law would be enacted '
for their benefit and not for the j
benefit of the negro children. Be-;
sides the enforcement of the law j
would be in the hands of the school j
trustees and you would not tin I the
school trustees going around chasing
little negroes oat of the cotton patch '
into the school house, btu uiidsuui
mer or midwinter would be selected .
for their attendance on school, when
they are not needed in the fields.
In other words, the enforcement of
the law will be in ti e hands of the
farmers themselves, just as the di
vision of the public school money
is now in their hands. Look for a
moment at the otherside of the pic
ture. If 25,000 more negro chi 1
dren than white children are annu
ally taught to read and write in this
state what sort of race conditions
will we have in South Carolina in
two or three generations? You
might get those who are opposed to
compulsory education to draw you
a picture of that future, and you
will reach the conclusion that a man
who is opposed to compulsory edu
cation is an enemy to his own white
Good Reason for his Enthusi
When a man has suffered for sev
eral days with colic, diarrhoea or
other form of bowel complaint and
is then cured sound and well by one
or two doses of Chamberlain's colic,
cholera and diarrhoea remedy, as is
often the case, it is but natural that
he should be enthusiastic in his
praise of the remedy, and especial ly
is this the case of a severe attack
when life is threaten. !. Try it when
in need of such a re .edy. It never
fails. Sold by all dealers.
Reduced in Price.
Attention is directed to the ad
vertisement of Ford automobiles iu
this issue. As there has been a very
decided decline in the price of Ford
cars, they will doubtless become
more popular than in the past. The
Advertiser has been informed that
Messrs. Hatcher and Edwards of
Johnston have sold 10 car loads of
Fords since the first of January,
and it is probable, with the lowered
price, that they will sell as many
more before the close of the year.
Remarkable Cure of Dysentery.
I was attacked with dysentery
about Joly 16, and used the doctor's
medicino and other remedies with
no relief, only getting worse all the
time. I was unable to do anything
and my weight dropped from 145
to 125 poundn. I suffered for about
two months when I was advised to
use Chamberlain'* colic, cholera and
diarrhoea remedy. I used two bot
tles of it and it gave me permanent
relief"' writes B W Hill of Snow

ailments and disorders that make
life miserable. Take Chamberlain's

Congressman Byrnes Gave Ac
count of his Stewardship.
Mr. Mixson Presented
Yesterday the two candidates for
Congress, Hon. James F. Byrnes
and Hon. R. M. Mixson, addressed
about 10? voters in the court house.
I The meeting was presided over by
lion. J?. E. Nicholson who present:
ed Mr. Byrnes as the first speaker.
Ile jailed attention to some local
matter which concerned" the people
of the district directly. He secured
an appropriation for the purpose of
eroding a bridge in the lower part
of Beaufort county which enabled
the farmers of that section to mar
ket their produce in Savannah. He
also secured an appropriation of
?100,000 for the improvement of
the internal waterways along the At
lantic coast, enabling those residing
along thes<" streams to secure cheap
er rates for transportation. Mr.
Byrnes secured for this di-trict
?20,000 for the improvement of
public roads. Of this sum $10,000
were offered to Ed gefiel cl but suffi
cient money cou'dj not be raised
locally to comply with the condi
tions imposed by the government.
Mr. Byrnes has established tb rural
routes in the 2nd district during the
past three and a half years, enabling
2.500 families to have their mail de
livered at their doors. Mr. Byrnes
staled that he worked for the nomi
nation of Hon. J. Wm. Thurmond
for position of district attorney for
South Carolina, and that he was
greatly disappointed when the
president announced his decision to
nominate some one else for the po
sition. He explained why he voted
to repeal the canal toll exemption
act, thus saving the government
82,500,000 annually The first
speech he made in congress was up
on the repeal of the duty on farm
ing implements, bagging and lies
and other necessities of life. He
spoke at some length of the tariff
legislation and what it has accom
plished. He.stated that the loss of
revenue incident to the decreased
duty has been made up by the en
actment of the income tax law,
causing the burden to fall on the
rich mau. Mr. Byrnes then went
into a discussion of the new cur
rency law at some length. ;He then
referred to his efforts to secure
funds for the improvement of the
public roads. A bill carrying au ap
propriation for road improvement
has passed the House and is now in
the senate. If this becomes a law it
will provide about 8450,000 for the
roads of South Carolina.
In concluding Mr. Byrnes referred
to the prestige that the South has
won by keeping congressmen in
office for a long term of years. This
policy has enabled the southern
states to control most of the impor
The second and last speaker was
the Hon. R. II. Mixson of Barnwell
county. Ile stated that it was a
pleasure for him to come as a farm
er before the people of old Edge
field, he having been engaged con
tinuously in farming since he don
ned the red shirt in 187?. He made
a hurried review of his work as a
member of the general assembly in
1913 and 1914. His initial bill was
one providing that all supplies for
public institutions be purchased in
open market from the lowest re
sponsible bidder, claiming that this
effected a saving of at least ID per
cent. Mr. Mixson ai so referred at
some length to the fight which he
made in the house in the interest of
education, especially the common
schools. He also introduced and se
cured the passage in the house of a \
two-cents rate bill, this measure
meeting death in the senate. He '
supported in the house a senate bill K
to require Clemson college to fur
nish hog cholera serum to farmers
free of cost. Mr. Mixaon favored ,
the pawage of a bill abolishing the
hosiery mill ia the penitentiary and ^
opposed the payment ?by the state
of a sum to the operator of the mill
for alleged damaged sustained
throQgh the violation of the con
tract made by the state. ' In discuss
ing the question of good roads, Mr.
Mixson said that the public high
ways cannot be improved by taxa
tion. Such a large sum would be
required that it would bankrupt the
people to raise the necessary amount.
He strongly urged government aid.
He also advocated the dairying of
the valuable lands on the cost, stat
ing that the government is spending
millions in the west irrigating arid
plains. Mr. Mixson referred to the
fact that in 1?04 he called Secretary
of Agriculture Wilson to account
for an error that was made in the
estimate of the cotton crop, claiming
that the servico which he thus ren
dered had much to do with the rise
in the price of cotton at that time.
Mr. Mixson spoke of the possible
effect which the present war in
Europe will have upon the price of
cotton when it is. marketed, stating
that the.national'governrnent should

Mr. Mixson refeired briefly to
