America has the M's that are so
much needed-men, means, munitions.
Millions of patriotic Americans are
awaiting their country's call and will
follow Old Glory wherever duty leads.
The Germans are not like Truth.
When crushed to earth they, as a na
tion, will not rise again.
If rumors of war with America make
the old^Kaiser sick, what will actual
warfare do for^him?
Since onions have advanced to twen
ty cents per pound, we haven't heard
of anybody objecting to butter a la
onion. _ _
Expressions of discontent among the
masses in Germany that are leaking
out, in spite of the censors, portends
greater trouble for the royalty than
has yet befallen them.
The ex-czar of Russia is said to be
the wealthiest man in all the world, his
estate exceeding two billions of dol
lars. However, we would not be in his
shoes for his shekels.
The liquor forces no longer point to
prohibition in Georgia as a farce. The
"bonedry" law just enacted by an
extra session of the legislature called
for that purpose will keep Jacksonville
and Chattanooga liquor out of Georgia.
The Spanish-American war was an
eye-opener to the world as to America's
fighting force, and we entertain the
belief that the war we are about to en
gage in will again make the world take
notice that America is on the map and
is in the front rank of the world powers.
Men, men, men, men!-The cry
everywhere is for men, more men. The
army needs men; the shops need men;
the mines need men; the farmers
need men. There is no place for
the idler, the drone. Men who will
not work should be made to work,
It would probably be a fine thing, at
this juncture, if Germany would do one
of her characteristic Smart-Alex stunts
by sending one of her sub-marines to
our Atlantic coast just to "showoff."
It would have an admirable effect
that of causing our men to fall over
each other to reach the naval recruit
ing stations. America throws out a
challenge to Germany to send one of
her devilish little diving craft into At
lantic waters at this time.
Commendable Activity of Methodists.
Whenever an individual or organiza
tion rests upon its oars, is satisfied with
past and present achievements, that
very moment decay and disintegration
set in. Unless there is a constant de
sire and effort to press forward, mak
ing the achievements of to-day step
ping stones to greater undertakings cn
to-morrow, there can be no growth or
permanent development. Acting upon
the principle or natural law that stag
nation means decay and activity in
creases life, the members of the great
Methodist denomination have projected
great things, for which The Advertiser
heartily commends them.
First, an educational campaign bas
been launched in South Carolina by the
Methodists of both Conferences to raise
the enormous sum of $300,000 for the
better equipment of their three col
leges, Wofford, Lander and Columbia
college. While this may to some ap
pear to be an Herculean undertaking,
especially with the nation about to
thrust itself in a world-wide war, yet
we confidently believe this great body
of Christians, more than 100,000 strong,
will press forward until every dollar of
the coveted sum is secured.
A second great task which our Meth
odist friends have undertaken, one
which likewise calls forth our hearty
commendation, is the erection of a
magnificent house of Worship in Wash
ington, D. C., at a cost of $400,000.
The structure is to be of white Georgia
marble and the cost is to be borne by
the Methodists of 16 Southern States
This is a noble conception-a com
mendable undertaking! Washington
is noted forhandsorre secular and State
buildings-the peers of any in the
world-then why in the name of the
Great Cause should not churches like
wise in a visible and tangible way mag
nify the Christian religion in the na
Organize an Edgefield Company.
War with Germany is inevitable, and
every loyal American says let it come.
Further forbearance will mean a for
feiture of national honor and the sacri
fice of principles for which our fore
bears fought, bled and died.
When the national congress convenes
in extra session Monday an open de
claration of war will be made, which
will be followed by a call from the
President, the Commander-in-Chief of
our military forces, for men to rally
around the flag. When the call comes,
South Carolina will gladly furnish her
quota of men, and Edge-field county, a
county that has never been found lag
ging, will send to the front thc flower
of her manhood to battle for the
RIGHT against MIGHT.
The Advertiser would urge ir. advance
of the hour of enlistment that our
young men form a company of their
own, rather thurn enlist in other coun
ties and States. The advantages o?
organizing a local company ore too
numerous to need reciting. Let broth
er fight beside brother, neighbor be
side neighbor, enjoying the splendid
fellowship and comradeship that comes
only through such association.. And
too when the historian shall have re
corded their deeds of valor, let the
Edgefield of to-day, like the Edgefield
of the past, have credit for the prow
ess and achievements of her brave
boys. Let Edgefield men gather pres
tige for Edgefield and ma'-.e history for |
Edgefield rather than for some other
county or State.
This county can send to the front as 1
brave a set of men as ever drew sword,
and again we urge that they go out as j
an EDGEFIELD COMPANY.
Negroes Prefer the South.
During the past six months there has
been a considerable exodus of negroes
from the South, particularly from the
weevil stricken districts; Hundreds
have gone North from sections of this
On account of the return of foreign
ers in large numbers to Europe to en
list in the army, there has been a
dearth of labor in the mines and pub
lic works of the North, and in order to
fill the places made vacant by the re
turn of immigrants to their native
heath, large Northern corporations
have sent representatives through the
South inducing negroes to seek employ
ment in the North. The offer of high
wages and free transportation caused
many to go. However, upon reaching
their Northern destination, most of
them have not found that section the
Utopia that it was represented to be.
The severity of the Northern climate
in winter has worn heavily upon them.
Then, too, to offset the higher wages
than is paid in the South, the demands
of employers are far more exacting.
Even white Southern people have ob
served that the average Northern cor
poration i? almost brutal in its lack of
sympathy and this has impressed un
skilled negro labor to a greater extent.
After their curiosity has been satis
fied and the novelty of the change
wears off most of the negroes prefer
to return to the agricultural South,
realizing that the industrial North is
no place for them.
The following letter published in a
Georgia paper was written by a negro

Mr. Robert W. Glover Died in
Mr. Robert W. Glover, a respec
ted citizen and a -worthy, straight
forward, honorable man, d?ed yes
terday morning at an early hour, at
hie home, 1444 Broad Street.
Mr. Glover is survived by his sor
rowing wife, Mrs. Maggie Glover;
two brothers, Edwin Glover, of
Chattanooga, Tenn., and A. A.
Glover, of Worth, S. C.; and sis
ter, Mrs. Dr. J. E. Greene. He

field County, S. C. He was the
son of Arthur A. Glover and Eliza
Hughes Tillman Glover.
Up to a short while ago, Mr.
Glover was of the Augusta detec
tive force. He was a conscientious
and painstaking officer, and the.
commissioners of police and lieu
tenants speak in the hiebest terms
of his ability. He was honest and
trae in all things. His intimate
friends know that, though not a
man of means, he, in his big-heart
erl ness, gave of his earnings in
charity. Many a poor soul, at po
lice headquarters, has known of
Bob Glover's generosity.
Mr Glover has not been well for
for some time. He suffered from
Bright's disease. He felt it very
keenly, in the police shake-no, that
he would have to do patrol duty
and said that he did not believe he
would be physically able to perform
the work. He was given the place
of wagon officer at headquarters, an
attention which he appreciated very
However, he had this assignment
only a few nights before he had to
give up. 'His illness told on him
rapidly. Loving hands and the
best of medical skill ministered to
save him. But, as stated, he passed
away quietly, shortly after 3 o'clock
Mr. Glover had scores of friends
who have learned of his death ?with
the deepest regret and who feel
deeply for his good wife and family
in their sorrow and bereavement.

Mrs. J' F. Burgess, of Belton, on
February, 24, while praising Tan

been a sufferer for a long time from
indigestion and several other ail
ments that were the result of the
indigestion. I had severe choking
spells and it seemed that there was
a lump in my throat as big as a
hickory nut, and it was impossible
for me to eat without hurting after
wards and I had no appetite, either.

troubled a lot with sleeplessness.
Part of the time I was so weak 1

housework, and shortness of breath

"I had heard so much about Tan
lac, and my condition, it seemed,
would not improve, so I decided to
give Tanlac a chance to better it,
and Tanlac did all right. It reliev

er have nervous spells now. I was
freed of the indigestion, too, for
which I am thankful, and I soon
was strong and able to do my work.
Those choking: spells were ended.
In fact, I am in good health and
have been since a few days after I
started Tanlao, though I quit taking
Tanlac six months ago. I had
been in bad health about two years
before I started taking Tanlac, bat
about a year ago I became so mach
worse that I had to have a servant

SOWIE FACTS ABOUT AFRICA
Every Eighth Person of the Popula
tion of the World Lives in the
Nearly one-fourth of the earth's
land surface is comprised within the
continent of Africa. It is as far around
the coast of Africa as it Is around the
world. Every eighth person of the
world's population lives in the Dark
Continent. The blacks double their
number every 40 years and the whites
every 80 years. There are 843 lan
guages and dialects in use among the
blacks of Africa. Only a few of the
languages have been reduced to writ
ing. Thirty-five years ago tho export
of cocoa from the Gold Coast amount
ed to $20. Today is is over $8.0U0,00?.
The coal fields of Africa aggregate
S00.000 square miles ; its copper fields
equal those of Norm America and Eu
rope combined, and it has undeveloped
iron ore amounting to five times that
of North America. Africa h;?.s -10,000
miles of river and lake navigation, and
water powers aggregating 00 times
those of Niagara Falls.
If Africa had thc same proportion
of railroad mileage as the United
States according to its size, it would
have a million miles of track instead
of the 25,000 miles now in operation.
One area in Africa unoccupied by mis
sionaries is three times the size of
New England, a second would make
four states like New York, a third
would cover eight Iowas, and a fourth
is IS times the size of Ohio. Through
out Africa there is one missionary for
every 133,000 souls.
Almost the entire continent is now
under European flags. France has a
colony in Africa 20 times the size of
France itself. The British flag flies
over a territory as large as the United
States, and extends almost without in
terruption from the Cape to Cairo, a
distance of 6,000 miles.-World Out
DOGS ARE REAL DEMOCRATIC
They Share With the Small Boy Entire
Freedom From Snob
With the real boy a dog is very
much at home and entirely at its ease.
Perhaps it ls happiest with a crowd
of boys at their play, or starting off
on a holiday tramp. That man must
indeed be a "grouch" who has not
many times envied both boys and dog.
His envy is sharpened by the reflec
tion that the dog knows and under
stands the boys better than he himself
could hope to do.
The dog must be a bit of a tramp,
perhaps even a rowdy, taking joy in
the rough and tumble of life. Fortu
nately few dogs are the worse for
their breeding or capable of being
spoiled by education. They are never
snobs. It has often been observed
and here is a point for the considera
tion of the students of the canine na
ture and social order*-that dogs seem
to prefer what Is worn and shabby to
the spick and span. It is the same
with boys, who have a natural repug
nance to anything in the way of fur
niture and carpets that ls too fine to
be used. There Is no better teacher
of democracy than the dog, if he has
but half a chance. And boys are apt

REMEDY FOR STOMACH WORM
Drench of Copper Sulphate Has Been
Found Most Satisfactory by Ohio
Sheepmen having flocks infested
.with stomach worms and tapeworms
may free the animals of such pests by
treatment before turning out to
spring pasture. For this purpose a
drench of copper sulphate has been
found most satisfactory In the flocks
of the Ohio experiment station.
Two fluid ounces of a solution made
by dissolving an ounce of copper sul
phate (blue vitriol) in two quarts of
water is sufficient for a yearling, and
a two-year-old sheep needs three
fluid ounces. A long-necked bottle or
a rubber tube and funnel may be used
to give the dose. Most effective re
sults follow when the sheep are fasted
for a day both before and after treat
ment Water should not be given for
a few hours preceding and following
Digestive disturbances, poor appe
tite, loss of flesh and general weak
ness indicate the presence of worms.
Lambs are most seriously affected, the
experts say. Ridding the sheep of
worms in the spring will result in
fewer losses in the lamb crop.
