National Government to En
force "Bone Dry" Law.
Washington, Maj 16.-Accord
ing to a statement issued here today
by the post office department the
United States government is pre
paring to put the lid on the "bone
dry" liquor law, effective July 1,
which is said by the department of
justice to be probably the most
drastic enforcement of any law here
Beginning on July 1 the govern
ment authorities will do nothing
less than scatter throughout the
country small sized maps and bulle
tins showing in detail the states
which either in whole or in part
have prohibition and where it will
be unlawful, under the federal law,
to address mail matter containing
either advertisements or solicitations
for intoxicating liquors.
The recent law on this subject
provides that no letter, postal card,
. circular, newspaper, pamphlet or
publication of any kind containing
either advertisements or solicitations
for such orders shall be deposited
in or carried by the mails of the
-United State?, or be delivered to
any postmaster or letter carrier
.when addressed to any place or
point in any State or territory in
which it is by local law forbidden
to tdvertise or solicit orders for
Government officials construe the
act as barring from the mails matter
of the character described when ad
dressed to States or political subdi
visions thereof in which it is for
bidden either to advertise or solicit
It is expected that the first bulle
tin will be issued within the next
ten days and by an inspection it will
be a comparatively easy matter to
keep from running afoul of the law.

"No, ma'am," replied the youth;
"I'm through hunting. I wish a
marriage license now, please."

convictions, always throwing the weight
of his life and influence on the side of
right, truth and justice. He was a
member of the Methodist church and
from his early youth took active part
in every phase of church activities.
While a resident of Edgefield and af

The following letter from R. C.
Carlisle, Government Demonstration
Agent for Lowndes and Crenshaw
Counties, Alabama, is an expression
of expert opinion that has been the
means of placing the Jobson Plow on
hundreds of farms in his state. The
letter, written from Fort Deposit,
Ala., to the Jobson Plow Company, is
/'As a government agent whose
duty it is to encourage progressive
farming, I have been looking for an
implement that would break and sub
soil land to the best advantage-one
that would do both of these things at
one operation. I find that your plow
fills this need perfectly, and I certain
ly will encourage my demonstrators
to work with it.
"R. C. CARLISLE."
Mr. Carlisle aiso wrote to V. B.
Moore, Raleigh, N. C., in answer to
inquiries about this plow, as follows'.
"You can break land very easily with
tho Jobson Plow ten inches deep and
the pull will not be any greater than
your No. 19, that cuts only seven menes.

Keep Your Faee Turned Towards the
Sunshine and the Shadows Will
Fall Behind You
Business is going on as usual, and the buying public
seems to realize that to keep their money in circulation
is the best for their country's interest.
The seven-billion-dollar war loan to our Allies is go
ing to be spent in the United States mostly. Imagine,
if you can, seven billion of dollars in "greenbacks," end
to end, they will go around the earth at the equator
nearly thirty-four times, and it would take an express
train running forty miles an hour day and night, continu
ously, for two and one-half years to cover the distance ;
and their need be no fear of a panic at this date, as it is
up to us to keep business going, not holding our money
but circulating it.
We are doing our bit, and will continue business as
usual, and are gratified to see that our customers are do
ing the same.
Come in and pick out a pattern and let us order it
for you. We handle the Pictorial Review line, the most
popular pattern going.
Pick out some pretty sport cotton or voiles and
