Our Rural Public Schools.
The time is so short for children
to get what benefits the rural pub
lic schools afford that parents are
justified in making almost any rea
sonable sacrifice to give their chil
dren a chance to attend every day
in the session. That there will be
sickness and other misfortunes to
prevent some from attending every
school day of ten happens, but farm
work, as important as it is, should
not keep children away from school
if it can possibly be avoided.
More attention is now being giv
en to the schools than usual. It
would seem that there is a strong
sentiment among rural people to
improve the schools and see that
the children of fanners have better
advantages. There are so many
improvements that might be made
that it would not be easy to suggest
the most important. But there
will be no disagreement upon the
importando of regular attendatice.
Before better schools can be de
manded it will be uecessary to get
the full benefits of those we now
have. Then we shall have the help
of oar ueighbors and friends in
whatever is determined for the im
provement of the schools.

America's Greatest Foe.
A saloonless nation by 1020 is to
day more than a slogan-it is a na
tional imperative. The necessities
of war banished vodka from Russia
and absinthe from France. The
immediate requirements of a con
structive peace demand the removal
of John Barleycorn from the civili
zation of the United Sut?s.
Are we concerned to see this re
public prepared against the possible
aggressions of a foreign foe? Then
we must not forget that in a very
vital way P-r-o-h-i-b-i-t-i-o-n spells
preparedness. Before the recent
disturbance which called large num
bers of our young men to the bor
der, recruiting stations were turning
back G5 per cent of all applicants as
physically unfit, the vast majority
of them as the result of diseases for
which alcohol is directly or indi
rectly responsible because it breaks
down the will that controls pas
Safety and efficiency have com-1
bined to force prohibition upon an I
ever increasing number of indus
tries, great and small. Drink-be
fogged brains are no longer intrust
ed with complicated machinery.
"Rule G" has driven the casual
drinker as well as the "boozer" out
of the engine cab and away from
the switches. Even the saloon ad
vertises for bartenders who are to
tal abstainers. And it is a stupen
dous folly to intrust the priceless
ship of state to less than steady
hands and unclouded minds.
America trembles today with the
impact of world forces from with
out, with the convulsions of social
unrest within. We are at peace,
but it is a momentous peace-a
peace for which we must pay the
price. God is teaching lessons toi
the races, lessons that no people'
may escape- Let us pray that we
shall learn this lesson without
passing under the rod of war. But
learn them we must. And learn
them we cannot until we purge our
selves of this drunkenness.
I do not greatly fear an enemy
that may embark from some distant
shore to do us hurt. I do fear this
liquor foe that burrows his insidious
way deep into the very vitals of our
power, that not only smites the liv
ing but drives his poisons into the
loins of potential fathers and into
wom'bs of potential mothers to pre
damn the race with the eugenia taint
of alcohol. Give Ameiica clear
minds, clean bodies, and unspoiled
soils, and she will prove sufficient
for her momentous present even as
she Ins answered every question
that challenged her glorious past,
and the conclusion is inevitable that
any institution that robs the stale of
these-clear minds, clean bodies
and unspoiled souls-is an unmiti
gated evil ;uid must be destroyed.

BACKACHE 13 DISCOURAG
But Not So Bad If You Know
How to Reach the Cause.
Nothing more discouraging than
a constant backache. Lame when
you awaken, pains pierce you when
you bend or lift. It's hard to work
or to rest. Backache often indi
cates bad kidneys. Edgeiield peo
ple recommend Doan's Kidney Pills.
Read this case:
Mrs. E. P. Jackson, Cedar Row,
Edgefield, says: "I suffered greatly
from a weak and lame back, which
became so bad that I could hardly
get around. My sides and hips
also got sore and lame and loss of
sleep made me weak and exhausted.
Doan's Kidney Pills rid me of the
attack." (Statement given April
Over three years later, Mrs. Jack
son said: '*My back or kidneys
seldom trouble me now, but when
they do, Doan's Kidney Pills always
give me quick relief."

simply ask for a kidney remedy

TWO WAYS TO COOK CABBAGE
Both Will Be Appreciated by Those
Who Are Fond of This
Susskraut.-Take a good-sized henri
of cabbage, cut it tn about six or eight
pieces and wash. Have a kettle of
boiling water ready, put the cabbage
in, add a small pinch of soda, let boll
until tender, then take the kettle,
stand it in the sink and let, cold water
run over it until you can put your
hands into It, then squeeze all the wa
ter out of the cabbage, then chop lt
Have a frying pan on the stove, put
a small tablespoonful of lard In lt or
drippings (butter, of course, makes lt
still better). Take a medium-sized
onion, cut it up fine and fry till brown.
Add.a tablespoonful of flour, stir a lit
tle, then add the cabbage and thin It
with hot water or soup stock (a pood
cupful is best), salt and pepper to
taste. Let lt cook up a few minutes,
then serve. It Is fine with any kind
of meat gravy over it.
Bairish Kraut.-Take a good-sized
head of cabbage, shave lt fine and wash
it. Have a large iron kettle or a pan
on the stove ; put a good tablespoonful
of lard In It, then take a medium-sized
onion, brown it slightly, add the cab
bage and just a little water (a scant
half a cup), cover tightly and let lt
steam until tender. Stir occasionally
so lt will not burn. Add salt to taste,
and a few minutes before serving, add
a good tablespoonful of vinegar. (Of
course if you don't like the sour taste
leave the vinegar out.)

to work any. I had been keeping a

"I had no appetite at all and had

I have had a headache so badly
that I would not know anything for

my housework, nor anything else,
and I had begun to fear I would
not live long. I was so very mis

troubles that I really did not care
whether I lived or died.
"The endorsement a friend gave j
of Tanlac, in which he told of what
Tanlac did for his wife, influenced,
