Grand Carnival and Parade
Representing the Allied
Countries, in Edgefield
The patriotic ladies of Edgefield
in their untiring efforts and never
ceasing energy'to do something for
the comfort of the soldiers at the
front, have undertaken an entertain
ment that by far surpasses anything
ever given hore before, being in the
form of a Brilliant Street Carnival
and Spectacular Parade, represent
ing all of the allied countries that
are engaged in the World Wide
War. The proceeds from this enter
tainment will be equally divided
between the Red Cross und the
League for Woman's Service. Need
we say "A generous patronage is
desirW", when the whole nation is
at war! When our men and boys
are across the seas, or preparing to
leave for foreign battle grounds,
ready to sacrifice personal interests
even life itself-in defense of the
principles of Liberty and Truth
these are thoughts which should
inspire us to unselfishness and de
voted service, and cause us to re
member the unfortunate, homeless
sufferers, who have nobly risked all
*!.<*t life holds dear in this struggle
against the forces which make for
war, death and destruction.
Edgefield has long been noted for
her beautiful women, and on this
occasion a score or more of her
choicest "buds"-rivaling in beauty
and grace, the belles.of former days
will participate in the parade.
There will be the stately beauties
from the Court of St. James-re
presenting England; the fair-haired
and blue-eyed Scotch- "lassie" will
will meet her "laddie" when "Coro
in' Through the Rye", and as he
ardently and persistently wooed her,
she will softly sing, "We Hai Better
Bide a Wee", and Nellie O'Rouke
and Pat 0. Flinn, bearing garlands
of thistles will sing in charming
style some lovely old Irish ditties.
The pretty, petite, chic and charm
ing damoiselies of Paris, will shrug
their shoulders and enchant men's
souls with their bewitching manners
and gowns of brilliant hue and in
imitable design. Hailing from
Verona, where Romeo loved Julitt
will be the dazzling eyed and bril
liant complexioned Italian girls, who
will be surrounded by young swains,
whose lips seem mute, but whose
eyes will woo, to the music of the
banjo, the harp, the violin and the
flute. Fair Japan! The pride of th8
Orient! Her wee and winsome and
dusky and slit-eyed daughters will
appear wearing kimonas, and carry
ing fans and parasols that will rival
the rainbow in brilliancy of colors.
Belgian's homeless starving child
ren, barefoot and neglected, will
appeal to all. They are to sell
candy, the proceeds to be sent to
these unfortunates who are so
cleverly impersonated by the partici
pants in this fioat. The Red Cross
Relief float will be a touching re
minder of the noble work that is
being done on the battle fields and
the destitute and devastated coun
tries. A large ambulance, bearing
wounded soldiers and cared for by
the Red Cross nurses, dressed in
uniforms, will arouse much interest,
and cause everyone to have a greater
love and veneration for the memory
of Clara Barton, the founder of the
Red Cross Society. America!
Your country and mine!
Whose sons are all warriors and kings,
While thy daughters are queens' divine.
Your country needs your money!
Buy a Liberty Bond.

Hope Morn Would
Find No Stove In
Mrs. B?rgin Thought Chances
Were Heavily Against Her
GRKER TALKS IXTERKSTIXGLY OF
HER REMARKABLE EXPERIENCE
"I was in an awful condition
when I began taking Tanlac and
had been for two years, but Tanlac
got 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 10th in
endorsement of Tanlac. "I was
suffering from the after effects of
malaria. My system was out of
order, I was weak and run down
and my face was as yellow as a
pumpkin. My feet and legs felt
like they were dead or asleep, and
tingled all the time. Really, I had
begun to wonder if I ever would re
gain my health, and I didn't think
I had a chance, for so much medi
cine had failed to help me. In fact,
I felt so badly that I often told ray
family at night I hoped there would
be no stove in the house in the
morning so I would not have to
cook breakfast. I had stomach
trouble very badly, too.
"Tanlac is the grandest thing in
the world for a condition like I
was in, and it soon got ray stomach
in good shape, my face cleared up
and regained the right color and
my appetite soon came back. No
matter how bad a headache I had,
one dose of Tanlac relieved it.
Soon the Tanlac bad me feeling
tine 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 so much to get me well.
Those tablets are the best I ever
"I am glad to recommend Tanlac,
for it is the finest and, of course,
the only medicine that ever helped

Why Our President and Congress Showed
Good Sense in Creating the Liberty Loan Bond for
Raising Our Money
Because the billions raised in this way would have
otherwise been raised by direct tax on the people and
industries. This would have been a heavy burden on
those who could not afford it. So the best plan was
to have those who were willing to turn their money
lose to help make the war tax small as possible.
THIS STORE HAS PURCHASED ITS BOND!
GET YOURS NOW!
Only one week left. Our local banks can help you
get one. Every dollar that you invest in one helps to
win the war in the way of purchasing supplies, etc.
Don't forget that we are now ready
to show you anything in the Dry Goods

cold weather that is bound to come
will command you act when you can't. \
