All Democrats Should Vote.
At the approaching general election
all Democrats in South Carolina should
vote and vote right. Some designing
men are making an effort to create a
split in the party in this State, but we
io not believe they will have a cor
poral's guard for a following. White
men in South Carolina may have their
differences in the primary election,
behaving themselves oftentimes un
seemly, but when the day comes for
the two great national parties to meas
ure their strength white men come to
gether and join forces against a com
mon foe. The Republican party has
always been an enemy of the South
and we can not afford to do aught that
will even in the remotest degree
strengthen its strongholds. We do not
believe true South Carolina Democrats
can be led astray.
That Greenwood Mass Meeting.
Shocked by several recent tragedies,
one having resulted in the death of
four men, the citizens of Greenwood
held a largely attended mass meeting
last week for the purpose of taking
such steps as will be necessary to
bring about a better enforcement of
the law, especially the prohibition law.
It is conceded in every part of the
State that conditions have wonderfully
improved under prohibition, but, like
every other law, if we are to receive
the greatest possible benefit from the
prohibition law it must be enforced.
The object of the Greenwood mass
meeting was to bring about a better
enforcement of the prohibition law.
The chief way in which prohibition
improves conditions is through the cur
tailment of the consumption of whis
key. We need in Edgefield county a
further curtailment of liquor consump
tion. During the past month Edge
field has had two or three homicides
among negroes that were due to whis
key. While there are but few viola
tions of the liquor law now in this
county, there is too much being ship
ped in under the gallon-a-month law,
and unfortunately-seventy-five per cent
of the shipments are consigned to ne- !
groes. Unless the heavy shipments of
whiskey to Edgefield, this being the
central distributing point, are decreased
we will have other and still more shock
ing crimes resulting.
It is singularly true that in propor
tion as people prosper they plunge more
heavily into vice and wrong doing.
Seventeen cents cotton seems to have
unchained the devil and all of his imps
in some places, but let us, by holding
a mass meeting or through other means,
devise some way of keeping him
shackled in Edgefield.

Mother's Suffering From
DAUGHTER SAYS THE UNEXPECTED
HAPPENED AND TELLS OF
How Tani ac had driven away all
signs of pellagra, which her mother
had so badly that the bones of her
hands showed through the sores,
and how the same medicine had
given her great relief for different
troubles, was described in a very
remarkable endorsement of Tanlac,
given by Mrs. Belle Hopper, ol No.

suburb of Spartanburg.
"I suffered from headaches and
felt very badly, declared Mrs. Hop
per, in her statement. My system
was in a very badly run down con
dition and 1 was very weak. Tanlac
had helped my mother so much
that I decided to take it, and foe
Tanlac gave me a great appetite
and I began to want to work all the
time, though I had been too weak
to work. The medicine got me in
good shape in every way.
"My mother, whose home is at
Chesuee, S. C., Buffered from a very
bad case of pellagra and she had
been in bed for two years before she
began taking Tanlac and she had
been almost helpless for a year or
two before ?he had to stay in bed
all the time. Her system was in a
very much run down condition, and
her hands and face and feet were a
solid mass of sores. She had ho
appetite at all and she had lost a
lot of weight.
Really, my mother was in a ter
rible condition. The doctors told
her she had the woist case they
ever saw, and the bones of her hands
showed through the sores. She had
taken a lot of medicine-almost
eveiy kind of tonic she ever heard
of-and had several doctors, but
she says Tanlac did her more trood
than all of the other medicines she

though before she took Tanlac we
thought she would never get over
this disease. She was in an awful
condition, really, but she looks like
another woman now and it is all
due to Tanlac.
"She has a good appetite now and
has gained a lot of weight. She
sained three pounds on the first
bottle. We have neven seen any
thing like it. It is hard to believe
any medicine could do as much, but
Tanlac sure did give her the most
"I am glad to recommend Tanlac
because it just broke up the case o
