THE STATE GIVES FIGHTING
CHANCE TO TUBERCULAR
Work on the woman's building,
colloquially known as a ''shack," is
being rushed, and the State tuber
culosis camp ai. State Park will soon
be able to tai:e care cf the in wo
men to whom the institution will ex
tend its shelter and medical help.
This building is, the gift of the last
legislature to the people of the State,
and was earnestly advocated by the
. women of the State, by Governor
Manning and by the Columbia Rec
This camp is six miles east of Col
umbia on the hir'-test point of the
property acquired by thc- State some
six years ago through the wisdom
and foresight of Dr. J. W. Babcock
and associates. The tuberculosis
camp is separate and distinct from
the Slate hospital, and is not even
under the same management, but is
under the control of the Stat;? Board
of Health. Dr. Ernest Cooper of Col
umbia is the resident physician.
The ward for male patients was
opened just one year ago and more
than 35 patients have been receiv
ed and given benefit. Some have gone
home entirely restored, judging from
th ?T appearances. Others have been
greatly benefited. One gained 72
pounds in six months time. The feat
ures of the treatment are rest, care
ful, regular hours, plenty of sunshine
and fresh air. The men's shack is lo
cated on the highest point on the
property, and commands a view of
the hills for many miles. The woman's
shack will be equally as attractive
as to location and will be fitted with
The woman's shack will be ready
for the reception of patients in about
two weeks. There will be three free
beds, and the counties in the State
will be given opportunity to apply
alphabetically for the benefits there
of. The other beds are to be paid for
at the rate of ?1.00 a day, which
pays for medical attention, diet, med
icines and everything else. Dr. J.
Adams Hayne, State health officer,
says that the camp has the best cook
in the State, and that the $1.00 really
just pays for the table fare.
Dr. Hayne begs the people of Col
umbia to visit the camp on Sundays
or other days, just a 20 minutes ride,
and they will find a lot of cheerful
young men, making a brave fight to
get back upon their feet and back
into the busy world. Some of them
are Columbia boys. Some have been
patients at the famous camp in the
. Adirondacks,?-and declares that the
treatment and the tonic atmosphere
of State Park are just as beneficial.
There may be a house warming
when the woman's building is regdy
to be occupied.
It is planned to keep on extending
this plant until finally not less than
250 men and women can be taken
care of and nursed back to health
and told how to go out into the world
and take care of themselves.-Col
An Announcement Vitally Im
At the meeting of the South Caro
lina Press Association in York, June
7 to .10, a resolution was unanimous
ly passed indorsing the campaign
that Mrs. I. Rembert is con
ducting for a State Sanitarium to
care for the unfortunate, who have
been stricken with tuberculosis. As
you know the press of the State is a
powerful agency in correcting
wrongs. I think that it is the duty of
the editors to join heartily in this
movement to create sentiment in fa
vor of the sanitarium. I realize the
heavy demands on space now, but a
short notice every now and then in
the interest of this movement will be
highly appreciated. It is a form of
public service and the problem of
stamping out the dread disease is one
that every newspaper should help to
Within the next few days Mrs.
Rembert will send you slipsheets to
be inserted in your editions. I will
personally appreciate your carrying
these in your paper. The sheet will
contain a message for humanity.
The following is the resolution that
was adopted at the meeting of the
Press Association in York:
"Resolved that the members of the
South Carolina Press Association
print an article describing the South
Carolina Sanitarium and the work of
the institution during the first week
in August." "T
"Resolved further that this asso
ciation pledge its support and co-op
eration of the movement towards the
eradication of tuberculosis, and that
it give its aid to this work now being
done under the auspices of the State
Board of Health of South Carolina."

Governor Manning Pleased
With Campaign and is Con
fident of Re-Election.
Columbia, S. C., August 3,
1916. Special.- "I am very much
pleased with the progress of the
campaign and am confident of ray
re-election," said Governor Man
ning here Tuesday before leaving
for Sumter to begin the sixth weeks
swine: around the state: Governor
Manning is bearing up well under
the incessant strain of campaigning,
is very enthusiastic over the sup
port that he has found in every
part of South Carolina and is thor
oughly optimistic over his chances
of serving the people a second term
as their chief executive.
"It is a campaign that is worth
fighting," emphatically continued
the governor; 'there is no place in
it for compromise or for a neutral
position. The issues are as closely
defined as they were in 19M. The
main question is simply whether the
law shall continue to be enforced
and respect for the law upheld on
the plane to which it has been
restored in the past year and a half,
or whether the verdicts of the ju
ries and the decrees of the courts^
shall be set aside.
"Besides this there is the im
provement in condition of labor to
be carried on; the education of our
boys and eirls to be continued
along the line already mapped out;
and the welfare of the unfortunates
in the state hospital for the insane
to be safeguarded with sympathy,
intelligence and care. For all these
things I stand.
"Those who would violate the
law will vote against me; those who
oppose tho le? islation I have rec
ommended and signed for labor's
betterment will vote against me;
those who oppose better education
for the children of the state will
vote against me, and they will be
wise to do so, for these things to
my mind are fundamental and I
will not compromise them.
"Bul the course of the campaign
has already shown that these per
sons are in the minority; that they
do not and cannot control the state;
the cause of progress in law en
forcement and education will go
forward. This cause, which was my
platform two years ago and is ray
platform now, is becoming each day
more and more a fixed policy de
manded by the level-headed masses
of the people.

MR. BETTIS CANTELOU,
Edgefield, S. C.
Dear Sir:-Referring to our conversa
tion relative to the Vapor Plug which
you attached to my Ford automobile.
On a trip to Greenwood from Edge
field and return, I was impressed with the
small amount of gasoline consumed. As I
have been for more than a year makins
the trip almost weekly, I therefore de
cided to make an accurate measurement,
and accordingly had my ten-gallon tank
filled before leaving Edgefield. I made
the trip to Greenwood, and after arriving
there Mr. J. P. Abney and myself meas
ured the grasoline in my tank and found
that I bad made the trip of 36 miles on
one gallon and three quarts of gasoline.
I am satisfied that your plug not only
saves gasoline, but that it likewise gives
the engine more power, which is easily
perceptible to any one that is accustomed
to driving his machine.
Yours very truly,

Continuing. Mr. King said: "My

down condition, complicated with
other peculiar troubles and a very
bad case of indigestion. She had
been in ill health a long time be
fore she began taking Tanlac, and I
once paid out *75 for medical ser
vices for her, and she did not get
as much benefit then as she did from
her first bottle of Tanlac, which
cost just one dollar.
She had no energy and felt bad
ly all the time. She was not able,
hardly, to do anything around the
house, and was under a doctor for
a solid year, but got no better. She
now has taken two (2) bottles of
Tanlac, and it has proven in her
case the best medicine in the world.
Her strength has increased a great
deal and her appetite is better than
it has been in years. Nothing she
eats causes her indigestion now.
She sure is pleased with the results.
It is just wonderful the way she has

whole year with a very peculiar and

dozen doses of Tanlac broke up.

over half a day. He would get so
weak he would have to stop for the
day. This summer he was not any
better.- Charlie's appetite would be
good until he got to the table, but
then he would become sick. Often
at night his breath would almost
leave him. He lost a lot of weight
and strength. I had taken him to
a dozen doctors, but he got no bet
