AH that is lacking is training and this

Who can tell us why we have had no

in this respect at least, about five years
behind some of the other counties.
Billy Sunday did not miss the mark
very far when he said in a sermon in
New York the other day: "If you turn
hell up-side down, you will find on it
these words 'Made-in-Germany' ".
In sections of the country where
there is a plethoric condition in the
money market the bonds sold "like hot

Southern people made an admirable
"Uncle Sam" asked his people for
$2,000,000,000 through a bond issue and
they promptly handed $2,000,000,000
over to the old gentleman. Don't you
know that response make3 the great
man in the White House feel just fine?
Among the subscribers for the Lib

Every liberty-loving, free-born, high

die a thousand deaths than live under
the Hohenzollern yoke of tyranny.
For that reason American manhood will

Forts of Embarkation.
The announcement was made several
days ago that Charleston and Savan
nah have been selected as ports from
which troops and supplies will be ship
ped to Europe. Apparently, these
ports have not received the considera
tion in the past from the national gov
ernment that they should have receiv
ed. It is conceded that, from the
stand-point of deep water, accommo
dating some of the largest craft afloat,
Charleston ranks among the first ports
of the country, and yet it has never
received recognition in a large sense
from the government. Even the navy
yard in Charleston is not regarded as
of any considerable value and had it
not been for the persistent efforts of
Senator Tillman, it would doubtless

Incomes and Wealth Widely Differ.
Some idea of the relative wealth of
the two section, as well as the vary
ing incomes, can be gained through the
income tax collected during the year
now closing. In the State of New
York the enormous sum of $110,431,
480 was collected under the federal in
come tax law, while in South Carolina
only $547,649 was collected. A num
ber of things have contributed to this
enormous wealth of New York in
comes representing of course a pro
portionate amount of wealth.
In this connection it would be inter
esting to know how much money has
gone into the State of New York du
ring the past 50 years in federal pen
sions alone. That which has found its
way into South Carolina is infinitesi
mally small as compared with New
York. The interest on pensions alone
in New York, compounded for 50 years,
would amount to an inconceivable sum.
Another thing that has enabled New
York to amass such immense wealth
has been her commerce, which con
sisted almost exclusively of manufac
tured goods, while that of the South,
and South Carolina in particular, has
consisted of raw material. The profit
on manufactured goods is enormous as
compared with that on raw material.
Indeed, much of the time South Caro
lina's raw material has been sold at or
below the cost of production. Under
such conditions New York and other
Northern States will grow richer by
leaps and bounds, while South Carolina
and other raw material producing
States will increase in wealth at a
much slower pace.
Should Make No Change Now.
The State Board of Education is
planning for the adoption of a large
number of new next books for the pub
lic schools, which means that thou
sands of dollars worth of books that
are reasonably well preserved will be
discarded altogether as worthless or
disposed of for a mere song. Were
the matteroT making a change at this
this time discretionary with the board,
it should have deferred the sweeping
change until the next year or the year
The Advertiser has never been in
sympathy with those who believe that
the same book9 should be used indefi
nitely without the. adoption of newer
and better books, books that are more
in keeping with modern methods of
teaching. But on the other hand, in a
crisis like the one which now confronts
I us, we do not believe parents should be
forced to incur considerable expense in
order to change text books. Continu
ing the same books for a year or two
would save a considerable sum at a
time when economy is being preached
on every hand, and the schools or pu
pils would suffer but little.
Government's Estimates Not Guesses.
Whenever the heads of departments
in Washington, after making all possi
ble research and investigation, make an
estimate it can generally be relied
upon. Occasionally they go far afield,
but sources through which the depart
ments receive information are them
selves not infallible. When the call
was made for registration under the
selective draft law, the director of the
census was requested to examine his
records bearing upon the male-inhabi
tants between the ages of 21 and 30,
inclusive, and make an estimate of the
number who would be liable for regis
tration. The figures were placed at
10,000,000. A great many persons
were skeptical, stating that so large a
number would not be included in the
The practically complete returns

were operated besides 512 special
cars on the twelve regular trains
operated into and ont of Washing

without undue delays, special pre

In Memory of Mrs. Victoria
"Leaves have their time to fall!"
From season to season we learn
from youth to silvery age to look
with joyous eyes, upon the faces of
the beautiful flowers as they smile
up from where they have been en
tombed by winters icy hand. It is
only the truth graven upon the
leaves of our mind, that when a
friend passes from view, cut down
by the north wind of death, that
the star of faith, rises luminous
upon our overwhelming grief
a id we know that as the leaves
return to the trees and the flowers
to their stems, so the loved ones are
beyond the changing shadows of
times effacing fingers.
Just a month has borne its record
beyond the space of time. Amidst
the nearest of earth, Mrs. N. G.
Evans (Victoria Gary) like a leaf in
the autumns golden light, of a well
spent life, this historic woman passed
away, in her beautiful home in
Edgefield; coming in the summer
of lite to take possession of the
homi.' her famous brother M. W.
Gary, bequeathed to her, she with
a dignity, born of a great mind,
dispensed royalty to poor and rich,
a beautiful hospitality, springing:
from a noble christian heart. To
know* her was a liberal education.
Her recollections of men like R. E.
Lee and others, with whom she was
socially thrown as the wife of Cap
tain N. G. Evans of the U. 6. A.,
afterwards Gen. of the Confederate
Slates army, her simple language
and raarveleous memory was a thing
of beauty-from Witherspoon line
age the great signer of our wonder
ful document gave charm to her
every action. You came from her
presence with a feeling created by
her, that you had given this lovely
woman much pleasure.
Abbeville yet will point with sin
cere pride as being the resting place
of ?his wonderful family who have
given to the nations Signers. Sena
tors, Jurist, Doctors, Warriors and
high minded, "pure as snow and
chaste as ice," mothers and daugh
ters. They are true in friendships,
sincere in theil belief.?.
They sleep in majectic peace,
awaiting the time that mu9t come
to all, the great day of returning
life, when friend shall see friend in
the glorious Resurrection Morn."
To her family and friends we give
sympathy, for "flattery can not
smooth the dull cold air of death."
We all await the "inevitable hour."
To choose that momentous hour is
brightened by the luminous person
alty of the dear mother's love for
"He who doeth all things well,"
and so her children know that from
under the eod the beautiful soul has
fled in exquisite beauty to the great
White Throne, where she awaits
one and ali of them she loved wise
ly and well.

MRS. DELLINGER DECLARES
SHE LIVED IN CONSTANT
DREAD - FEARED
"I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT I'D
JUST GO ALL TO PIECES,"
J SHE SAID.
" I hope my statement will bring
benefit to others," said MRS. L. A.
DELLINGER, of Cayce, S. C., a
suburb of Columbia, as she began
to tell on April 28th of the great
results Tanlac gave her. "I took
three bottles of Tanlac and I'm
free of all ray ailments now and I
feel fine. I have not taken any
medicine since I quit taking Tan
lac. I was so poor and thin and
weak when I started talune- it, but
the medicine made me strong and
hearty. I suppose I gained at least
ten or fifteen pounds in weight.
"When I began taking Tanlac I
was suffering awfully with a nerv
ous stomach trouble and I was just
so nervous I could not hold a con
versation with anyone. I don't
know why, but I would just go all
to pieces. My appetite had almost.
gone and I was awfully dizzy al
most all the time. I thought, too,
that something dreadful would hap
pen to me and I lived in constant
dread. At times it felt as if my
heart would jump out of my body,
too. But thanks to Tanlac, I am
now free of those troubles and I'm
glad to recommend Tanlac to any
who suffer as I did,"
