Upshaw Defends Southern Valor
(Continued from Page One.)
country, 'tis of thee" with as much
love and loyalty as the school boys
and girls north of the Ohio river
have sung it for me in recent months
-and when 1 likewise solemnly and
sacredly declare that nowhere on the
American continent will there be
found readier response to the call
of our common country than among]
the sons of southern heroes, "griz
zled and gray," who followed Stone
wall Jackson and Robert E. Lee;
nor do I do violence to the ameni
ties or the proprieties of this cru
. cial national hour when, in this
well provoked and natural defense
of my own section I declare that
our nation owes the South a cumu
lative debt of gratitude for nurtur
ing upon her ample and patriotic
bosom, that scholar-statesman of]
poise and power. Woodrow Wilson,
who is the impartial president of]
the whole nation and the inspiration
of the whole world. Let us be done
-forever done with even the possi
bility of such little sectional flings,
whether inadvertent or deliberate,
that "the East can't fight and the
South won't fight."
It is a glorious commentary on
the unbroken and unbreakable soli
darity of our common patriotism
of the complete wiping out of all
political, credal and sectional lines
when senators and congressmen,
North and South, through the corri
dors of the president's heart, in this
pivotal, anxious hour, throwing
their arras of unquestioning faith
and iupport around our nation's
leader who must be for many dark
and trying days "a man of sorrows
and acquainted with grief."
And what true American did not]
read today with an unspeakable
thrill of enthusiasm the words of j
former President Taft stating Amer
ica's attitude toward German un
surpation with all the clearness and
loyalty of President Wilson himself
-or who did not feel his heart warm
within him or perhaps wipe the
tears from his eyes when he read on
yesterday how Charles Even Hughes
grandly fit to be presiaent, declared
to the Brown university alumni in
New York: "He is our president
now, and all differences shall be for
gotten as we pledge our loyalty to
our president and our country in
this grave and solemn hour!"
And every man sprang to his feet
in thrilling expression of the loft
iest type of our united Americanism.
It is enough. Thank God we haye
Sj at last one country, ono flag and one
united purpose, to make that flag a
. protection to each other and a bless
ing to the world.
WILLIAM D. UPSHAW.
Editor The Golden Age, Atlanta,
P. S. Since starting this article
on the train, the news comes that the
inevitable break with Germany has
occurred. And if the worst, God
help us, must cora", the country will
have an "ocular demonstration" of
the fact that the E:ist CAN fight
and the South WILL light for the
honor and safety of tne Flag we
love. W. D. U.

Interesting Letter From Rev
George W. Bussey.
Dear Advertiser: It has beei
some time since I had a word wit)
you, though I enjoy your weekl;
visits as much as ever. It seem
like the visit of an old friend whei
you come. Matters are moving
j smoothly her? in spite of wars am
cold weather. We have had som<
lof our Edgefield "boys" up her?
this week, in U. S. court, Messrs
Thur;riond and Mays. Though thej
are rising towards the top, I love
to remember them as Edgefield
boys, and their parents as raj
friends of former days. I rejoice
in their success.
We have had a treat in our fami
ly of late to have had my daughter
Hattie with us for several weeks.
She now lives in Chicago. She has
just left us to return home. The
following concerning her departure
appeared in the Greenwood Journal
a few days ago:
"Mrs. Hattie Waldrop returned
yesterday from Spartanburg, where
she went Saturday to visit her un
cle, Mr. J. L. Bussey and other rela
tives. She will start back to Chi
cago, Tuesday but will go by Mar
tin, Ga., and stop a few days with
her brother, Rev. A. W. Bussey on
her wav home. She has just re
ceived a letter from her son who
has returned from the border with
Gen. Pershing's expedition in Mex
ico. He belongs to the infantry
and has been in the army three
years. He has been promoted to
second lieutenant and will enlist for
four more years. Perhaps some of
the young men here remember little
Hugh Gilchrist who went to school
here when a boy. His father, W.
A. Gilchrist, lived here until Gov.
W. A. Gilchrist, his cousin, went
to Waycross, Ga., to take charge
of the development, of Gilchrist
Park which is the largest section of
the city of Waycross. While there
he died, and my daughter married
Mr. Waldrop and moved to Chicago.
She has two of three sons with her
there, both in business."
My health is fine and I have
plenty work to do.

A SAFE TEST.
For those who are in need of a
remedy for kidney troubles and
backache, it is a good plan to try
Doan's Kidney Pills. They are
strongly recommended by Edge
W. B. Paul, painter and papery
hanger, Butler St., Edgefield, says:
"I was bothered by kidney trouble
nearly all my life. It grew worse
when I had the measles some years
ago. Doan's Kidney Pills removed
the pains and strengthened and reg
ulated the action of my kidneys.
My health became better than it
had been in many years." (State
ment given April 12, 1911.)
Over three years later, Mr. Paul
said: "I have very little trouble
with my kidneys now, but when I
am bothered that way, Doan's Kid
ney Pills never fail to relieve me."
Price 5c. at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills-the same
that Mr. Paul twice publicly,
recommended. Foster-Milburn Co.,

Leading Southern farmers will tell you that 400 pounds of
SWIFT'S RED STEER BRAND FERTILIZERS will make from
20 to 50 pounds MORE LINT COTTON PER ACRE than other
brands of fertilizer. Even at 15c per pound, every 10 pounds more
lint per acre reduces your fertilizer cost $7.50 per ton. Figure this
out for yourself. You can prove it this year by using SWIFT'S.
The reason is that SWIFT'S FERTILIZERS are always made,
from highest quality and highest-priced materials, skilfully com
pounded, double mixed and thoroughly cured.
The difference between SWIFT'S and other fertiliz?rslWILL
ALWAYS SHOW UP AT THE SCALES.
This same increased production applies "to all other crops.

Five Days Later Was

WEEKS BEFORE SHE STAR
TED TAKING TANLAC. IM,
PRO VE AIENT WONDER
COULD NOT KEEP EVEN COLD WA
TER ON HDR STOMACH AT ONE
TIME. STRONG AND HEAR
Though ehe declared her condi
tion at one time was so bad that she
could not keep even cold water on
her stomach, Mrs. J. G. Johnson,
of 587 North Church St., Spartan
bnrg, declared that Tanlac made
such a rapid improvement in her
condition that it got her out of bed
and enabled her to do light house
work in three days. Mrs. John
son's remarkable statement and en
dorsement of Tanlac follows:
"I had catarrhal fever and what
I thiuk was a slight case of the
grippe. 1 was very much sick at
my stomach and I vomited so much
I could not keep even cold water on
my stomach, much less my food. I
had dizzy, fainting spells a let, too.
I had become so weak and sick that
I had to stay in bed. I stayed in
bed three weeks and could not even
sit up, and I was under treatment
all the time, but I did not seem to
be getting any relief, except that
nausea was helped. I did not gain
any strength at all, though, and I
finally lost heart in that way of try
ing to regain my strength, and I
threw away all medicines and be
gan taking Tanlac.
"A friend who?e husband had
been helped ever so much by it kein
after me until I began taking this
medicine, and she certainly did me
a great kindness by doing so, too.
"My relief by using Tanlac was
as follows: I was able to be up-and
going to the table and eating a reg
ular meal and doin? light housework
in three days, and in a weak I dis
charged the cook and began doing
my housework by myself. I was
able to go to church five days after
I started taking Tanlac. The Tan
lac gave me back my appetite right
at the start, and soon drove away
that nausea that I then had at times,
and 1 could just feel myself getting
stronger right along.
"I never bava known any medi
cine that would make a sick person
act well so quickly, and especially
one who was as sick as I was. 1
just took two bottles and I am feel
ing line now and am still getting
stronger and heartier, even if it has

getting rae well, too, and I certain

York Physician Will Refuse to
Write Whiskey Prescririons.
They were discussing: the DuRant
quart a month bill in a York county
drug store the other day after it had
passed the senate and a certain well
known doctor delivered himself of
"Well, if it is passed I am one
physician who wilf absolutely re
fuse to write a prescription for li
quor for anybody or under any cir
cumstances. If the bill becomes a
law physicians will be continually
almost worried to death. Every
booze fighter and most of the booze
fighter's friends will be seeking pre
scriptions. Suppose you do write
them. The records of the clerk of
court's office will be open for in
spection and it could easily be seen
that not only I, but every physician
was writing scores of whiskey pre
scriptions. Then some folks would
say that I am selling liquor pre
scriptions. No sir, none of that for
me. I remember how it was several
years ago when the drug stores sold
liquor on preserip:ions of physicians.
I was pestered to death for prescrip
tions and I have actually had peo
ple to steal my prescription blanks
from my pockets and forye ray
name to prescriptions for liquor.
No, sir I will not write a prescrip
tion for liquor for my best friend."
