Buy Your Fall Goods Early
Desirable merchandise is scarce, and prices are daily advancing. You will profit by supplying
your needs now. You will gain nothing by waiting, in fact, the information we have is that all dry
goods will advance very much higher than they are now. Cotton, the one product of which 75 per
cent, of the goods used by the average consumers, is selling very high, and we believe it will go
higher, and of course cotton goods will advance. We, with many years of experience and close ob
servers of the market conditions, had fore-sight enough to go in the market early, when prices were
much lower and purchased our fall stock. The result is, we are now prepared for Fall Business with
a very large stock of merchandise. When this supply is exhausted we have no assurance as to what
the prices will be- Our customers that make their purchases early will obtain goods at practically old
prices. We strongly advise early buying, whether you buy of us or not.

very keen. Saturday was cold, and

A Living Worth Making.
Our ueighbors know us. We
may not be pleased always with
what our neighbors say about us or
how they describe our dealings with
others, yet the fact remains that our
neighbors know more about us than
io addition to making a living on
the farra we should strive to make a
life We should do the things that
help make the community, leave an
influence that is elevating among
young people, and thus develop in
to ripe, old age relined and benevo
Not all of our energies should be
taken in making a living. Some of
the thought ordinarily give to less
important things should be tiren to
making a life.
Let the making of a life be para
mount among young people. If this
is done there will always be a living
commensurate w'th the life-a liv
ing that typifies and exalts the life
that is worth living.
This kind of character will be
worth more than the wealth that
could bo accumulated and the end
of such a life will bethe beginning.
Such a living makes life brighter
and better. Such a living is worth
making.-Farm cfc Ranch.
A SAFE TEST,
For those who in need of a reme
dy for kidney troubles and back
ache, it is a good plan to try Doan's
kidney troubles and backache, it is
a good plan to try Doan's kidney
pills. They are strongly recommend
ed by Edgefield people.
W B Paul, painter and paper
hanger, Butler street, Edgefield.
says: "I was bothered by kidney
trouble nearly all my life. It grew
worse when 1 had the measles some
years ago. Doan's kidney pills re
moved the pains and strengthened
aud regulated the action of my kid
neys. My health became better than
it had been in many years." (State
ment given April 12, 1911.)
Over three years later Mr. Paul
said: "I have very little trouble
with ray kidneys now, but when I
am bothered that way, Doan's kid
ney pills never fail to relieve me."
Price 50c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's kidney pills-the same
that Mr. Paul has twice publicly
recommended. Foster-Milburn Co.,

with visitors and tourists. It was in
deed fine. The buildings unique
and the exhibits a revelation to me.
I would be compelled to write a
book were I to go into detail of all
this exposition revealed to me, say
nothing of the entire Southern Cali
fornia. From San Diego I returned
to Los Angels and started next day
for San Jose (pronounced lian
Hosay) the county seat of Santa
Clary county, one of the banner
counties of this state, noted partic
ularly for its prune crops it is said,
supplying most of United States
with this wholesome dried fruit.
San Jose is one of the oldest towns
of California, dating back to 1782
100 years ago. It is called the gar
den city, and certainly well named
for it is the abiding place of abun
dant ai.d luxurious flowers of every
kind and description. In fact Cali
fornia is one grand garden, flowers
growing and blooming the entire
year, out of doors, the geraniums
and heliotrope growing from 8 to
ld feet high. Certainly California
may well boast of her climate.
Flowers, fruits that are abundant,
grapes particularly fine, and the
wine grapes grown in profusion.
That is now causing much agitation
on account of prohibition that is to
be decided at the November eleciion.
Prohibition ?s being opposed by
the wine grape growers and that
seems natural enough as they have
vast acreage in vineyards.
At present writing I am visiting
friends living 12 miles West of San
Jose, a town of 3,000 inhabitants,
called Los Gatos. It is a beautiful lit
tle town in the foothills. These hills
are green the year round I am told.
Many beautiful bungalows are here
and there, as well as some preten
tious homes of the wealthy.
To-day, Sept. 21st, we are having
the first rain since last April and
accompanied by slight lighting and
thunder, which all say is of rare oc
curence here. I am very much im
pressed to observe the independence
of the women in this far West
State. They are surely very busi
ness-like, quick witted, and the ma
jority of them attending to their
household duties, tine cooking with
out the aid of servants, and seems
to me can get through oceans of
household cares, including care of
their children ?fcc, Then rinding

But not all care to register or vote.

HAD BEEN IN VERY BAD HEALTH
OVER TWO YEARS AND ALMOST
PAST GOING FOR FOUR
Though he had been almost c^ -
stantly under treatment for four
months, and intermittently during
the previous two years, and though
he had wasted away until he was
hardly more than skin and bones,
and could hardly walk because of
his weakness, G. G. Anderson, of
900 Whaley St.,- yard foreman at
Columbia for the Atlantic Coast
Line railway, gained 24 pounds on
seven bottles of Taolac and was re
stored to good health, according to
the statement he recently gave in
endorsement of ''the master medi
cine." His statement follows:
"I suffered from a greatly run
down and weakened condition. I
bad been in very bad health for sev
eral years, and just before I began
to take Tanlac I had been continu
ously under medical treatment for
four months. I was told I had
"For almost two yeras I had been
so weak I could hardly work. I
was just skin and bones, I was in
such bad health, I scarcely ever ate
more than a few bites at a meal.
I was in bad shape. One time,
shortly before I begar. taking Tin
lac, I was under treatment contin
uously for 21 weeks and steadily
got worse. I just could not eat,
and what little I did force down
hurt me and caused me to feel puff
ed up and gave me a severe pain in
my chest. My nerv ;s were very
bad, too. Really, I was just about
past going at all.
"I had read about Tanlac, and
finally I lost heart in the treatment
I was under and began taking
"The relief Tanlac gave me was
as follows: 1 took seven bottles and
gained 24 pounds. I picked up
right away and added a lot of
strength- When the seventh bottle
was gone I was really a new man
in health and strength. I did not

had taken the second bottle jf Tan

in strength and weight. Soon I
was eating three b;g meals a day,
so great an improvement did Tan

I feel fine now, and I have been a
different man ever since Tanlac
built me up.
J aro glad to recommend Tanlac
and to give you this endorsement,
for it may help others to find a way
to regain their health. I sure can
recommend Tanlac highly, for I do
not know of a better stomach rem

for many kinds of stomach reme
dies that did me no good."

?jig Circus and Great Spectacle
Occupy Five Trains Crammed
The big event for which the
youngsters and grownups have been
impatiently waiting is drawing near,
for on Wednesday Oct. 18, Ring
ling Brothers' circus is to exhibit
afternoon and night in. Augusta.
Expectancy eever ran so high be
fore and it is likely that this dis
trict will send a large delegation to
feed the elephants. Unusual inter
est centers around the gigmtic spec
tacle, "Cinderella," with which the
famous showmen are this season
opening their wonderful main tent
program. "Cinderella" is proba
bly the best loved of all fairy tales
and to see it produced with more
thon 1000 persons, hundreds of
dancing girls and glorious pageants,
indeed gives promise of making
childhood's golden dreams come
true." In the same great tent, will
come the marvelous circus numbers
in which 400 men and women per
formers, scores of trained animals
and a galaxy of special features are
introduced. The majority of the
acts are entirely new to America,
the Ringling Bros. having secured
the pick of those European perform
ers who have been obliged to seek
engagements in this country because
of the war. The all-new street pa
rade will take place show day morn

All the male citizens between the
ages of 21 years and 60 years, except
those exempt by law, are liable to a
poll tax of One Dollar each. A capita
tion tax of 50 cents each is to be paid
on all dogs.
The law prescribes that all male citi
zens between the ages of 18 and 55
years must pay $2.00 commutation tax
or work six days on the public roads.
As this is optional with the individual,
no commutation tax is included in the
property tax. So ask for road tax re
ceipt when you desire to pay road tax.
