Gone to Washington.
In response to a telegram from
his uncle, Eugene Timraons left for
Washington, D. C., Monday morn
ing to accept a position. Being a
lad of exemplary habits, one who
has not despised the instruction of
God-fearing parents, Eugene is well
grounded in Christian principles,
and, therefore, it is not at all likely
that he will be lured into forbidden
paths in the national capital.
Entertainment for School.
On Friday evening, May 28, the
teachers of the graded and high
schools will give an atractivo play
in the school auditorium for the
benefit of the school. Much time is

oughly enjoyed. The money realized
will be used to pay for wiring the
school building and for the pur
chase of books for the school libra
ry.

School will close June 2. TheMc
Duflie literary society will hold
public exercises in the auditorium
Thursday night June 3. The grad
uating exercises will be held Friday I
night, June 4. The speaker for
the occasion has not been chosen
3 et. The members of the gradua
ting class are, Miss Evelyn Broad-1
water, Miss Emmie DeLoach, Miss
Willie Mae Hart, Walter Mays and
Edgar Strother.
For Cotton Weigher.
The first of the several candidates
to announce for the position of pub
lic cotton weigher for Edgefield is
Mr. W. D. Allen, whose formal
card appears in this issue. Mr. Al
len is not only largely connected
but has many loyal friends who will
give bim active support. He is
from every standpoint well fitted
for the duties of this position. For|
several years he has been in the em
ployment of the Beaver Dam Mill
and there had considerable expe
rience in handling cotton. If elec
ted to the place, Mr. Allen will

Fine Seed Irish Potatoes.
By referring to our classified
column of advertisements this week
you will find that Mr. R. A. Wash,
better known by his friends as Gus
Wash, can supply you with home
grown Lookout Mountain potatoes
for planting at the very reasonable
price of 81.5? per bushel. Last year
Mr. Wash made 80 bushels of these
potatoes on one-quarter of an acre.
It is conceded that the Lookout
Mountain potatoes rank among the
best varieties. They are finely fla
vored, cook ,well, keep well and are
prolific. The yield which Mr.
Wash made is sufficient testimony
as to their producing well. Better
see Mr, Wash in person or drop
him a card. Do not fail to plant a
late crop or second crop of pota
toes, using the Lookout Mountain
variety.
Governor Manning For Law.
Governor Manning is administer
ing the affairs of his office with
great vigor, and it is his dominant
purpose to enforce the law. It may
?eem a bit old-fashioned but the
j? adamen tal concern of a govern
y it is to maintain order, through
^ irocesses of law. It is not an
Cfo tant factor that the Governor
orator, though it is gratifying
AA him speak well, nor is it de
.^fiy at a Governor build a per
* 'cal machine through ap
?and concessions. It is
Tever, that a Governor

Carberry Canner.
I ara agent for the Carberry
Water-Seal Canner. This canner
has four big points of merit:
It is simple, scientific, safe and
successful.
The Cai berry Canner has been
purchased in ten state agricultural
colleges for use at lectures and dem
onstrations.
It economizes time and labor. I
shall be glad to show them to those
persons in the county who need a
canner. Write to me at Clark's

Whooping ough.
Well-everyone knows the effect
of Pine Forests on Coughs. Dr.
Bell's Pine-Tar-Honey is a remedy
which briners quick relief for
Whooping Cough, loosens tne
mucous, soothes the lining of the
throat and lungs, and makes the
coughing spells less severe. A fam
ily with growing children should
not be without it. Keep it handy^
for all Coughs and Colds. 25o at

A FAIR WARNING.
. '--- ?
One That Should be Heeded by
Edgefield Residents.
? ? * '
Frequently the first sign of kid
ney trouble is a slight ache or pain
in the loins. Neglect of this warning
makes the way easy for more serious
troubles-dropsy, gravel, Bright's
disease. 'Tis well to pay attention
to the first sign. Weak kidneys gen
erally grow weaker and delay is
often dangerous. Residents of this
community place reliance in Doan's
kidney pills. This tested remedy bas
been used in kidney trouble over
50 years--is recommended all over
the civilized world. Read the fol
lowing Edgefield proof:
Mrst G T Padgett, Edgefield,
says: "My back ached and pained
all the time. In the morning when
I got np, 1 was so sore and stiff that
I could hardly bend over. I tired
easily and it was an effort for me to
do my housework. I also had head
aches and dizzy spells and my sight
blurred. I got Doan's kidney pills
at Penn & Holstein's drug store and
they relieved me from the first.
Whenever my back gives me any
trouble now, .1 take Doan's kidney
pills and they never fail to give me
relief.'?
Price 50o at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's kidney pills-the ?ame
that Mrs. Padgett had. Foster-Mil
