Congressman Byrnes Writes ]
Hon. G. L. Toole, Aiken, S. C.
Dear Sir: I read your letter in
which yo'? invite me to meet you
between now and Deo. mber first in
order to discuss whether ? should
or should not be re-elected con
gress. The Democratic primary|
will not be held uutil August ?t?,
lUlS, and a man cannot lile a pledge
as a candidate before MAJ.or June
next year. Between now and then
there may be other crentlemen who
desire to become candidates for
Congress, and should I meet yon
next week, I know of no reason I
could assign tor refuting to meet
the following week some other gen
tleman who thinks he will be a
caudidate next year.
I believe that at this period in
our history what time and energy
the men and women of this District |
can spare from their personal busi
ness affairs, they are devoting to
the advancement of the cause of
their country, and they are little in
terested in the personal political
ambitions of men who expect to be
candidates for next summer. They
know that regardless of joint dis
cussions held now by men who ex
pect to be candidates, under the
rules of the Democratic party they
will have inflicted upon them next|
summer a joint discussion by men
who are candidates for Congress.
One such discussion in two years is)
enough. Therefore, at this time,
ten months before the primary elec
tion, I will not join you, either in
joint discussion or in a newspaper
If, as \ ou intimate, your invita
tion is extended because you fear I
may not be present at the meetings
provided for by the Democratic!
party next summer, I desire to say
that I have never failed to give to
the people an account of my stew
ardship, and you can rely upon it|
that I will be there. If you pay
the entrance fee and become a can
didate I shall be glad to discuss the
matters referred to by you, point
out the statements in your letter
that are misleading and those that
are untrue-misleading and untrue,
I am satisfied, beciuse of lack of j
information, and not from a desire
to misstate them. I can also assure
you that if any additional questions
are asked by you or by others, I
shali answer them, and I may ask a
few on my own account.

Price of Food Stuffs.
The writer recently came across
a bill of goods b- u<rhl of Kl i nek
and Wickenborsr, in Charleston, in
1S53 To compare prices then and
now may be interesting'. The price
of the following articles will indi
cate the price of goods then in
Java coffee 'JO els; stan-h 10, ba
con ll; hams 15; flour 7.25; rice
4 els; lard 14; sugar 12; tea 1.00;
vinegar 80 nts; grits etc., in pro
portion. Since that time the
prices have been like the the tides
of the sea-going and coming. Now
it is about spring tide, and if it
keeps rising we'll be submerged.
But we ought not to be alarmed;
for we do not think that prices will
rise because, unless the unexpected
takes place, with all the Neutral
Countries cut off there is no place
to ship our stuff except England
and France-both of which are
self-supporting as ourselves, with
the exception of Cotton which alone
is raised here and in Egypt and
parts of South America. We can
not ship cotton to Neutral Coun
tries. Therefore with the demand,
by Neutrals and the enemies, cut
off I do not assert but ask the ques
tion-how can cotton go any high
er or much higher?
Now use your own head-not
mine-but do not forget to use it
before you hold too long or buy too
quick! It may be very pleasant to
have Utopian dreams about high
prices for cotton, but if we read
the standard literature of the wor'd
and figure just a little our dreams
may become unreal. I believe that
wool will be very high in this coun
try and a substitute, with asbestos
and other products, for some cot
ton goods. I am giving no advice,
because, while it is patriotic and
dangerous too, nevertheless, it is an
article people get nothing for even
if it fills the other man's pocket
with wealth-who tooK the advice.
So use your own head-but use it!

OF DOLLARS FRUITLESS

FOOT IX THE GRAVE AT OXE
People both old and young, who
suffer with stomach trouble, would
do well to read the following highly
interesting statement given by Mrs.
Mary Gillam, of 53 Riverside, An
derson, on March 3rd. Mrs. Gil
liam is of an advanced age.
"1 suffered from an awful case of
indigestion," said Mrs. Gilliam,
"and I was so weak I could hardly
walk and really I should have been
in bed. My feet and leus burned
all the time, my whole system was
weakened and run down and I was
very pale. My appetite had left
and I never became hungry. My
health had been bad for several
years. Hundreds of dollars worth
of medicines had been bought for
me, but none gave me much relief,
r.nd 1 steadily became worse and
lost weight until I was skin and
bones almost and seemed to be
slowly starving to death.
"Soon after I started taking Tan
lac, my appetite returned and my
stomach was strengthened and the
indigestion left me. Now I am
eating heartily and my food is di
gested and nourishes me. I gained
twenty-five or thirty pounds after
I started taking Tan I ac. The home
folks laugh at me now because I
eat so much. 1 waa just about big
enough to make a shadow wheu I
started Tan lac, but now I am at
'Tanlac is the finest restorer and
tonic I ever used. It soon got me
strong enough to do my house
work, despite my years, and it is
the only medicine I ever took that
gave ne permanent relief, and I
guess it can be truly said that I had
one foot in the grave when I began
taking it. Tariiao certainly is our
stand-by now, and both my husband
?a? .m.vself think the world of it,
for 1 expect it. gave me a number
of years more of life."

A TWICE-TOLD TALE.
One of Interest to Our Readers.
Good news bears repeating, and
when it is confirmed after a long
lapse of time, even if we hesitated to
believe it at first hearing, we feel
secure in accepting its truth now.
The following experience of an
Edgefield man is confirmed after
Mrs. E. Jackson, Cedar Row,
Lidgefield. says: "I suffered greatly
from a weak and lame back which
got so bad that I could hardly get
around. My sides and hips also
got sore and lame and loss of sleep
made me weak and exhausted.

Over Three Years Later Mrs.
Jackson said: ''My back or kid
neys seldom trouble rae now, but
when they do, Doan's Kidney Pills
always give me quick relief."
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills-the same
