I am a Candidate for the Prudential Hundred Thousand League this Year
Help me to the goal, that I may win one of the best Life Insurance trips. I have a good start so far of the one hundred thousand.
As we have something better than others, and something better than usual, I feel warranted in a good sum advertising expense to inform the people.
To give you an idea of the dependable soundness of the PRUDENTIAL'S Policy and its popularity, the Company' issued and revived more Life Insurance
in one year (191G) last year, than any other of the more than 260 companies operating in the U. S. had in force from its entire record of existence, excepting eight, ac
cording to the Blue Book published by the Spectator Company in 1916.
The Prudential Issued and Revived in 1916 $591,000,000 Life Insurance
THE REASON: The PRUDENTIAL has the STRENGTH of GIBRALTAR. It has the lowest rates with annual
dividends, further reducing the premiums. The policy is plain with no catches. The policy pro
vides without cost, that if the holder becomes physically disabled, he is excused from paying the
premiums, and this without effecting the policy.
You can surrender a 20-pay life policy with annual dividend
off at the end of 20 years to the Company for more cash than
you have paid the Company. Drop me a card and I will see you.

Celebrated Seventh Birthday
Several hours of Tuesday after
noon were made to seem very short
to the little folk who were honored
with invitation? to the birthday
party of little George Edward Shep
pard which wa9 given by him at
the home of his grand patents, Mr.
and Mrs. Orlando Sheppard. Vari
ous contests and games that are
of especial interest to children were
engaged in until all grew weary aod
then they were refreshed by delicious
ice cream and cake. A number of the
guests presented the popular little
host with some token of affection
and the host presented each guest
with an attractive whistle, some
thing that every little boy prizes as
much as big brother does an auto
mobile. The pleasure that each
little guest derived from the very
delightful occasion is reflected or
evidenced by a remark made by one
little fellow upon reaching home:
"When I have a party I want one
just like George Edward's."
Hundreds of Acres of Food
While in Charleston last week,
the editor of The Advertiser took
an automobile ride of 15 miles one
afternoon up the Ashley river to
Magnolia Garden, which is uni
versally conceded to be one of the
beauty spots of the world. A de
scription of ita bewitching beauty,
at this seasoD, would baffle a poet.
However, that is not the feature to
the joy-ride which we set out of1
mention. For almost the entire
distance we passed through fertile
acres devoted exclusively to truck
farming. How we did wish, at this
time when growing foodstuffs is
being stressed, that hundreds of
Elgefield county farmers could sie
the sights of the Ashley. Much of
the land had been drained and
several hundredacres plantedin Irish
potatoes, beets and cabbages, all ex
cept the latter being about ready
for market. In some of the potato
fields-not patches-there were
scores of negro women at work
stooping as if they were picking
bugs from the potatoes. The speed
at which our chauffeur was traveling
made it impossible for us to see just
what was being done by this small
army of low-country women. The
acres upon acres of food crops pre
sented an inspiring sight. Upon
our return home our few rows of
potatoes appeared as only a grain
of sand on the seashore. However,
if the bugs will not be too greedy,
we hope to make enough potatoes
"to do us."

An Aged Lady Sustains Injury.
The entire community was great
ly depressed Tuesday afternoon
when it became known that Mrs.
Victoria Evans had fallen and frac
tured her hip. She was visiting in
the home of Mrs. Orlando Shep
pard and fell while in the hall. A
physician was summoned and she
was removed to her home. After
making a thorough examination the
physicians announced that one of
ber hips was fractured by the fall.
Dr. Guerry was called into consul
tation, reaching Edgefield Tuesday
night about 1 o'clock. Mrs. Evans
is receiving the best possible atten
tion and is resting as comfortably
as could be expected.
The sympathy of the entire com
munity goes out to this aged and
widely beloved lady who has passed
her 80th year.
Are You Economizing Every
Way You Should?
People who are using best judg
ment are those who are economizing
every way possible. The best way
to economize on cattle feed (espe
cially milk cows) is to feed Buco
Meal and Buckeye Hulls.
Feed twy parts of Meal and three
parts Hulls, wet Hulls ten to twelve
hours before feeding, then mix
meal, and you will get best results.
Both Buco and Buckeye Hulls
for sale at the Addison Mills, at a
very low price. Good reports from
all who have tried this feed.

Address by Rev. Richard Carroll.
The announcement that Rev. Car
roll would speak caused a large
number of Edgefield people to as
semble in Macedonia church Sunday
afternoon, almost half of the assem
blage being white people. Rev.
Carroll and his work are well known
in Edgefield. He has been visiting
Edgefield at intervals for nearly
twenty years, and attracts a larger
number of persons to hear him each
His address Sunday afternoon was
preceded by appropriate remarks by
Mr. Orlando Sheppard. In his ad
dress Rev. Carroll gave his hearers
some wise counsel, never at any
time using language that would
arouse the prejudice or displeasure
of any reasonable minded person.
He urged the white people to be al
ways kindly and just in their deal
ings with negroes, and urged the ne
groes to render honest and faithful
service. He also advised the ne
groes to remain in the South instead
of yielding to the allurements of
Northern agents. His address was
well received in the afternoon, and
at night he again spoke, but espec
ially to the colored people.
While Rev. Carroll is in the em
ployment of the Baptist Home Mis
sion board, at this time he is
engaged in the cause of ciyic or
food preparedness, and along this
line gives his people some advice
which will be of great profit to
them if heeded.
Whenever Rev. Carroll comes to
Edgefield hereafter he will be cor
dially welcomed, as he always proves
to be helpful to the people among
whom he mingles.
THAT MORNING LAMENESS
If you are lame every morning,

Mrs. G. T. Padgett, Edgefield,
says: "My back ached and pained
all the time. In the morning when
I got up, I was so sore and stiff that
I could hardly bend over. I tired
easily and it was an effort for me
to do ray housework. I also had
headaches and dizzy spells and my
sight blurred. I got Doan's Kidney
Pills, at Penn cfc Holstein's Drug
Store and they relieved me from
the first. Whenever my back gives
me any trouble now, Doan's Kid
