THE CORNER STORE
I EDGEFIELD, SOUTH CAROLINA
The Flag of Carolina.
A FLAG DAY SONG.
We honor every nation,
Every flag for which they fight,
But we love our own State's emblem.
Our flag-the blue and white.
The flag our fathers fought for,
In Charleston by the Sea,
Where Jasper this freedom
To raise for liberty.
Carolina's flag of white and blue!
Forever may it float so true!
Carolina's flag oh! let it wave,
O'er this great people strong and brave!
Carolina's flag! Carolina's flag!
Of white and blue.
The flag of Carolina,
Upraised on Georgia's soil,
Trampled in dust by British,
In London's Tower-their spoil.
The flag of Carolina,
Borne by bravest men of all,
Who led the charge in Mexico,
And placed it on their wall.
The flag our fathers fought for,
The flag they died to hold,
A legacy for children
Dearer than sordid gold.
Raise high this war-scarred banner!
With its folds again unfurled,
Let it keep its ancient motto,
And shout it to the world!
Let it float both pure and honest,
And loyal as it waved
O'er a country blessed with freedom,
O'er a land our fathers saved.
Let it guard with jealous fingers,
Those principles of right,
Which our mothers inculcated
And which kept our homes from blight
And in the final moment
When the lives of each unfold
May we yield a good accounting
To our ancestors of old.
For the heritage they gave us
Was purchased by their might
And o'er nation strong an'! noble,
Waves this flag of blue .id white.
Agath; A. Woodson.

T J Paul, prop, of garage,Jeter St.,
Edgefield, says: Kidney trouble in
my case was brought on being on
my feet continually.I had a dull pain
in my back and I tired easily. When
I was on my feet for any length of
time, my back got sore and stiff.
My rest was broken at night, as the
kidney secretions were too frequent
in passage, causing mo to get up a
number of times. Three boxes of
Doan's Kidney Pills, procured at
Penn & Holstein's Drug Store,

Mr. Lott Urges Large Acreage
Wheat and Oats.
Editor Edgefield Advertiser:
Please urge upon the farmers
through your coiumns the impor
tance of increasing their acreage of
small grain, especially wheat and
oats. Flour, at the rate it has ad
vanced the last six weeks, will be
twelve or fifteen dollars the barrel
by March 1917. Oats at 80 cents
and ?1.00 per bushel is a paying
crop. Every farmer should sow
wheat enough to supply his needs,
and require his oroppers to sow at
least four acres to the plow of his
! best land and four to six acres in
We have two roller mills in the
county that make as good flour as
can be bought*. The display of fine
horse and mule colts, at our county
fair is an evidence that our people
are on the right track. If we have
plenty of grain for man and beast,
we will have easier and better times -
regardless of the boll weevel.
