Menace to Industrial Life.
The Advertiser does not know wheth
er the report is correct or not, but the
belief is current that the germ seed of
the labor troubles in the Anderson
mills were brought into South Carolina
from the North. It is unfortuuate that
the existing satisfactory conditions, as
to the relations between capital and
labor, in this State are to be disturbed
by outsiders. Would that we could
keep out these fomenters of strife!
They are as great menace to our indus
trial interests as the boll weevil is to
our agricultural interests. In saying
this, we mean no reflection upon or
ganized labor. The Advertiser advo
cates organization and co-operation
along all lines. But let the power or
force gained through organization be
used with wisdom and justice.
Woodrow Wilson Four More Years.
President Wilson can now settle down
to the even tenor of his way, having
the assurance that a majority of the
100,000,0('0 American people endorse
his administration. Considering the
fact that he never at any time "played
politics" and frequently ignored long
established precedents, thereby antag
onizing many persons and interests, his
re-election in the face of Republican
millions spent in the campaign is all
the more remarkable. In all of his
official acts he had an eye single to the
welfare of the people, never sinking to
the sordid and selfish plane of strength
ening his political fences by prostitu
ting his power.
The American people, and particu
larly the people of the South, have
great cause for rejoicing. Yea, more
-all of the people of the earth should
give thanks for Woodrow Wilson's re
election, for he has, in every exigency,
stood as impregnable as Gibraltar for
humanity of every nationality.
For Larger Crops.
The possibilities of increasing
the yield of ordinary crops by early
and ample preparation of the soil
have never fully been realized.
Many who have let the various du
ties that all must meet interfere
with the work of preparing the soil
properly, can scarcely understand
what it would mean in additional
yield to prepare on time.
Moisture is often the determining
factor in growing crops in certain
localities. It is a fact that land
hat lies till spring without turning,
con never be prepared so it will re
tain moisture like land broken in
fall or winter to get the benefits of
winter rains aud freezes. Timely
breaking deepens the soil so it will
retain moisture; it incorporates veg
etable matter to be decomposed and
converted into humus, that life
giving substance that absorbs mois
ture, and helps change chemical
constituents into available plant
It is very important that the land
be prepared early It will need all
the time, all the rains, all the freezes
it will get to become mellow and
ready for the seeded. There is not
likely to be any work on the farm
more important than preparing the
land for the next crop-Farm and

Death of Mr. W. B. Penn.
After a lingering illness extend
ing over a period of many months,
Mr. William Britton Penn passed
away early Saturday night. Not
until within the past few weeks,
however, was Mr. Penn confined to
his home. From the time that the
fatal malady seized Mr. Penn he
consulted a number of specialists
and received up to the last moments
of his life the best of medical at
tention, but no human agency could
arrest the disease. Through his
long physical decline he received
the most devoted attention^ of his
niece, Mrs. Julian D. Holstein, with
whom he made his home. Trained
nurses also ministered to him at dif
ferent times, particularly during
the weeks preceding his death.
Mr. Penn, though in appearance,
before he became ill, but little more
than past middle-age, had passed by
two months his 64th birthday. He
was born and reared in Edgefield
and was descended from old and
honored families. His maternal
ancestors were among the founders
of Edgefield, occupying first place
among its early citizenship, and his
father came from distinguished old
Mr. Penn has always been promi
nent in the business and commercial
life of Edgefield. The oldest busi
ness house here is ?he drug store es
tablished in 1845 by his father, tho
lamented George Lee Penn, and in
heriting it from his father, he con
ducted il with very marked success
for nearly 50 years. About 10 years
ago Mr. J. D. Holstein became as
sociated with Mr. Penn and reliev
ed him of the active management of
the drug business. By close appli
cation to business and through the
exercise of splendid judgment, Mr.
Penn accumulated considerable
property. He has been a director in
Thft Farmers Bank for a number of
Possessing the business acumen
that he did, it would doubtless have
been largely to Mr. Penn's advan
tage had he removed, in early life
to a larger field. This, however, he
was unwilling to do because of his
love and loyalty to Edgefield. He
loved every inch of her soil and had
an abiding affection for the people
among whom he was reared. Not
only were his friends, who were le
gion, found amon& the immediate
citizenship of the town, but the an
nouncement of his death was receiv
ed with distinct sorrow in every sec
tion of the county. The Penn Drug
Store, whose prestige he bad a large
part in making, is one of the land
marks of Edgefield and from it
medicines for the prolonging of life
and the alleviation of human suffer
ing have been dispensed throughout
three generations. Through this
means Mr. Penn, for nearly 50
years its proprietor, was brought
into intimate and sympathetic touch
with a large number of people. The
numerous and very beautiful floral
tributes were silent evidences of Mr.
Penn's wide popularity.
He was a member of the First
Baptist church, from which the fu
neral was conducted Sunday after
noon by his pastor. Dr. E. Pendle
ton Jones. Mr. Penn was never
married, making his home with his
niece, Mrs. Julian D. Holstein. His
other nearest relatives are a niece,
Mrs, Katie LaSueur of Huntington
Park, California, and a nephew,
Mr. George L. Sullivan, who was
reared in Rome, Ga.

"I weighed ninety pounds when I

Columbia, in a statement she re

she said she took a year ago and
which restored her health.
One year after she took Tanlae
Mrs. Lee gave the following en
dorsement of the remedy which
gave her such remarkable results,
her statement follows:
"Before I took Tanlac 1 suffered
from nervousness, and this trouble
very bad. Also, my system in gen"
eral was run down and weakened. I
was so nervous that I would jump
if anyone spoke when I was not
expecting it or if anyone knocked
on the door. I had no appetite at
all, and really I did not eat as much
as a cat.
"My strength had almost left me
and I could hardly walk across the
door. I was so weak and nervous.
I suffered awfully with headaches
and it seemed that there was noth
ing that would stop them. I could
not sleep at all hardly and a few
minutes after I would get to sleep
I would jum p and be wide awake.
There was very little rest for me
at night. I felt badly all the

read SJ much about it, and I took
four bottles. That was a year ago,
and I feel as well now as when I
quit taking Tanlac. I well woman,
when the fourth bottle was gone,
so great was the results Tatilac gave
"The Tanlac helped me so much
that I feel like I was sixteen years
of age, though I am much older
than that. I weighed ninety pounds
when I began laking Tanlac, but
I now weigh 125 pounds (again of
25 pounds) or more. The Tanlac
quieted my nerves and strength

My nerves are fine now and I feel
"Pam always glad to recommend
Tanlac, and I do so because it is a
remarkable medicine, and it did all
I could want it t to do for me. It
just broke up my troubles. It has
been a year since I took Tanlac and
I feel as fine now as I did when I
quit taking it."
