The price of cotton is vying with the
aeroplanes in reaching new altitudes.
It has been stated that only one in
every 100 Americans is altogether sound
physically. Are you the one, or do you
belong to the 99 who are below par?
"Trustees of Furman University Re
fer Hatter of Fraternities to Faculty,"
says a headline. Better for the insti
tution and student kody both that fra
ternities be ousted altogether.
The Germans had might as well
abandon their plans of annexation of
Belgium and prepare for its restoration.
It can be stated in advance that the
Allies will consent to no terms of peace
that will not restore the nationality
and former status of Belgium as far. as
it is possible to restore it.
This war has developed prophets
world without end. Some people say
they are neither prophets nor sons of
prophets, and yat they go straightway
and pose as prophets, making very bold
statements as to what will occur as
outgrowths of the war.
Some papers announced in bold type
that Gen. Perishing dined with King
George and his better-half, as if that
were a very great honor. Why, biess
your life, an American citizen, espe
cially one of the type of Gen. Perish
ing, is an uncrowned king himself.
The National Prohibition Scores.
The'.submission to the States of the
national prohibition amendment to the
constitution has been approved by the
senate judiciary committee. Give the
people an opportunity and they will
adopt the amendment by an over
whelming majority. The dispensary
was better than the open barroom; the
gallon-a-month law was better than a
county dispensary; the quart-a-month
law is better than the gallon-a-month
law. But none-a-month, for beverage
purposes, as will be the case under na
tional prohibition, will be vastly better
than a quart-a-month. The nation has
for several years been approaching the
coveted goal step by step, and the sub
mission of the constitutional amend
ment will enable us to reach it by one
Mr. Evans for Speaker.
As announced some days ago, Edge
field has an aspirant for the speaker
ship of the house in the person of Hon.
N. G. Evans. There are already two
other avowed aspirants and it is proba
ble that still others will announce later.
Mr. Evans is well qualified for the du
ties of this position and the people of
Edgefield must leave nothing undone
that will contribute to his election
when the legislature convenes in Janu
ary. Should this honor fall to the lot
of this worthy son, Edgefield county
-..viii likewise be honored. Let's leave
nothing undone that will contribute to
the strength of Mr. Evans in the house
when election day comes.
The Pernicious Cigarette.
That cigarettes are a menace to
American manhood is disclosed by the
large number of cigarette smokers
who fail to pass the physical examina
tion when they volunteer for service in
the army and navy. Vary few young
men smoke cigarettes in moderation.
There is something in the paper or to
bacco of which cigarettes are made
that causes the victim to smoke more
and more. The beginning is made with
two or three cigarettes a day. Later
a. package is required to satisfy the
craving that is produced, and later
still, after ! the victim becomes en
thralled, several packages must be
smoked each day.
It is needless to go into the why and
wherefore of the injury caused by
smoking cigarettes. Apparently help
less victims are seen on every hand,
and so evident are the injurious ef
fects of cigarette smoking or boys
and young men that proof, other than
the numerous tragedies in the form of
distorted and wrecked lives, is alto
gether unnecessary. Cigarettes are be
ing recognized more and more as a
national menace for that reason it will
not be long before the same forces that
have put John Barleycorn to route will
at no very remote day concentrate
upon the cigarette. Hasten the com
ing of that day!
Registration Facts and Figures.
Practically everybody is manifesting
the keenest interest in the rules that
are now being formulated in Washing
ton governing the drafting for and ex
emption from military service. The
announcement has bsen made that
these matters willjbe handled entirely
by local boards-probably new boards
altogether-under well defined regula
tions issued by theJWar Department.
It is gratifying to Governor Man
ning, also to the county boards and
registrars throughout the State, that
South Carolina was amongflthe first to
make a complete report of registration
to the Provost Marshal in Washington.
The total number who registered in
this State were 127,534, of which
60,629 were whita and 66,906 were
negroes. There were also 447 aliens
and 58 alien enemies who registered
but were not reported in the total. Of
the whites who registered, 40,555 asked
for exemption, and 44,831 negroes gave
grounds for exemption.
Velvet Bean Meal.
Harmful as they are, the people of
this section'are indebted to the war
and the boll weevil for the velvet
beans. This cereal or grain or vegeta
ble, or whatever it is, has been grown
extensively in some parts of the coun
try for'a number of years but it has
never been able to gain admission into
this cotton-bound section until the
boll weevd menace and high price of
foodstuiTs, as a result of the war,
made it necessary for farmers to grow
food ior man and beast on the farm.
A large acreage has been planted in
Edgefield county and throughout South
Carolina, *nd we feel confident, from
what we have seen and read of the vel
vet bean, that all who have planted
these comparatively new beans will be
well paid. Considering the food value '
of both stalk and grain, together with
the increased fertility of the soil, there '
is no better crop of the kind to be
found anywhere. The ground beans
or meal makes a very strong and very ?
In this connection it is pleasing fo ?
note that a former Edgefield young
man, who is now one of the foremost 1
business men of Columbia is installing
a plant for grinding velvet beans into 1
meal. The following is from Monday's
issue of the Columbia Record:
"Mr. B. R. Cconer, pr?sidant of the
Adluh Milling company, has recently
let contracts for machinery for a plant
to grind velvet beans into a very satis
factory stock feed. The machinery
alone in the new plant will cost more
than $10,000. The value of the plant
can be seen at once from the govern
ment estimates which place the num- ,
ber of acres in this State which are 1
planted in the velvet bean this year at 1
1,000,000 with an estimated yield of 1

"1 was in an awful condition
when I began taking Tanlac and
had been for two years, but Tanlac
Kot me back in good health," was
the emphatic statement of MRS.
D. J. B?RGIN, of Greer, S. C.,
in a statement she gave May JOth
in endorsement of Tanlac. "I was
suffering from the after effects of
malaria. My system was out of
urder, I was weak and run down
ind my face was as yellow as a
pumpkin. My feet and legs felt
like they were dead or 'sleep' and
tingled all the time. Really I had
tiegun to wonder if ever I would re
;ain my health and I didn't think I
jsd a chance, for so much *medi
jine had failed to help me. In
.act, I felt so badly that 1 often
.old my family at night I hoped
.here would be no stove in the house
m the morning so I would not have
o cook breakfast. I had stomach
.rouble very badly, too.
"Tanlac is the grandest thing in
.he world for a condition like I
ivas in, and it soon got my stomach
in cood shape, my face cleared up
ind regained the right color and
my appetite soon came back. No
matter how bad a headache I had,
me dose of Tanlac relieved it.
Soon the Tanlac had me feeling
line and strong, and after I had
taken two bottles I was well and
strong. I took some of the Tanlac
Tablets and they helped Tanlac ever
?O much to get me well. Those
tablets are the best I ever took.
I am glad to recommend Tanlac,
for it the first and, of course, the
joly medicine that ever helped

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 my housework. I also
had headaches and dizzy spells and
my sight blurred. I got Doan's
Kidney Pills at Penn & Holstein's

from the first. Whenever my back
