Prepare For Coming of Boll
Heretofore South Carolina farmers
have not taken seriously the warning
to prepare for the coming of the boll
weevil, but when conservative men
like Governor Manning, who has re
cently made a tour of the weevil strick
en district of the southwest, sounds a
note of warning in no uncertain tones
it is, time to "stop, look, listen."
There is danger ahead for the farmer
who refuses to believe. Governor Man
ning states that in m's judgment the
weevil will spread over South Carolina
in three years. Even if it be five in
stead of three it is time to begin to di
versify our crops, eliminating cotton as
far as possible. In many counties, in
Texas not more than one bale of cot
ton is produced now to ten bales before
the weevil appeared. The result has
been that grain and livestock must be
raised on the farm instead of cotton.
It will require more than one year to
adjust ourselves to the very radical
change, but as it is sure to come, we
had better begin now. Increase your
pas'.ure acreage. Improve the breed
ing of your stock. Let each farmer
study conditions upon his farm and de
cide for himself just what must be
The Highway to Greenwood.
Everyone will admit that, with the
limited means at hand, it is practically
impossible to make all of the public
roads in Edgefield county modern roads.
But the main thoroughfares that tra
verse the length and breadth of the
county can and should be improved.
And especially should roads be improv
ed that are a part of the leading thor
oughfares of the State. The condition
of the public roads to a very large de
gree reflects the people and the com
munity life of the sections through
which they pass. Then if that be true,
when people who travel through South
Carolina reach the borders of Edgefield
county the condition of our roads should
be better rather than worse than those
of adjoining counties. When strangers
travel within our borders let them go
away praising Edgefield county rather
than criticise us unfavorably.
The public road leading to Greenwood
ii a portion of the main highway from
Florida to the mountains of North Car
olina, and unless we keep step with the
counties to the south and north of us
and improve this piece of road, it will
be the weakest link in the chain, the
worst section of this inter-state thor
oughfare, and we will be criticised for
;ts condition. County pride, if nothmp
..Ise, should cause our people to make
:he road leading to the Greenwood line
it least as good as Greenwood county
makes the road leading from the coun
ty line to the town of Greenwood.
There is yet another reason why this
should be made one of the best public
roads in the county. That portion of
the county which lies north of Edgt
?elg is more remotely situated from a
railroad than any other section and con
sequently produce has to be hauled a
greater distance to and from market.
Having to make this long haul over a
bad road is very expensive. The peo
ple who reside in the section traversed
by this road need a good road to mar
ket probably more than those of any
other section of the county. Further
more, business that now comes to Edge
rield will be diverted to Greenwood if
the road to that market is improved
and the one leading to Edgefield is not
made as good.
Let me have your orders for fruit
trees of all kinds. I represent the

are always strong, vigorous and

ONCE LIVED ON MILK.
Removed by Tanlac. He Says,
"I've Had No Return of
My Old Troubles."
A few days ago, Frank Richard
son, a well-known employe of the
Byrd Printing Company, residing
at 52 We?t Lake St., Atlanta, came
into Jacob's Pharmacy, and in re
lating his experiences with Tanlao,
"About eighteen months ago, J
while I lived in Knoxville, Tenn., I
made the statement that I wouldn't
take ?500 for the good Tanlac did
rae. Well, I just want to tell jou
I still feel the same way about it. I
suffered with the most terrible case
of stomach trouble, which had fol
lowed me for seven long years, and
pulled me down almost to the point
of despair. Tanlac gave me relief
when everything else had failed and
I can never forget it.
"My diet was restricted to milk,
and occasionally a soft boiled egg,
and I wouldn't dare touch meat of
iny kind. I was habitually consti
pated and extremely nervous. No
matter what I would eat, I would
il ways have an awful pain in my
stomach, and this, with my stom
icb, kept me awake for hours every
night. My condition alarmed my
wife, and I was almost at the furn
of the road where I hadn't strength
to'follow my vocation.
"I read about Tanlac helping so
many people who were afflicted as I
was, and I determined to try it. ]
started to the drug store one eve
ning for my first bottle, and I was
so weak from loss of strength and
energy that I fainted. I managed
to get back home.after SO long and
started on my Tanlac, and the first
few doses made me feel better. I
continued improving, and, after
taking the fourth bottle, there was
a most wonderful change in my con
dition.' I found that I could eat
just anything I wanted, and, for
the first lime in years, I could eat
boiled ham and potatoes and felt no
ill after-effect. The pains all left
my stomach, my nervousness dis
appeared, and I could sleep like a
child. My troubles all went away
with those few bottles of Tanlac,
and left me stronger and more ener
getic than I had been in years.
Yes, sir, eighteen months have pass
ed since Tanlac so wonderfully re
stored my health, and it gives me
pleasure to tell you that I have no
return of my of my old troubles to
this good day, and I have kept my
average weight all along. Tanlac
made life a real pleasure to me, and
I go about my work with a feeling
that reminds me of the days of my
