BOTH HUSBAND AND WIFE
WRITE GLOWING TRIBUTE
November 5, 1917
My husband suffered from rheu
matism and sciatica for about one
year so awfully bad that I just can't
describe his awful suffering. We
had doctors to tend him, but nothing
except the morphine they gave him
eased the awful pains. When he
began breaking ont with boils and
sores he would itch so bad he would
almost scratch to the bone. I
thought sure he would die," writes
Mrs. A. B. Williams.
Her husband, who suffered the
dreadful torture of rheumatism in
its worst form writes: "I suffered
from rheumatism for two years, and
was confined to my room for three
months. I tried everything. The
suffering was so severe I thought I
was forever done with work. I
tried everything I and my friends
could get, but it looked like I was
done with business and work for
the balance of my life, lt struck
me worst in the small of my back
and in the left leg," continued Mr.
Williams. "By chance he heard
of what iron will do for people with
blood and system full of uric acid
and the kidneys not acting right.

stronger and being concentrated is
more economical, a few drops in a

He took it regularly a short while,
and now read what he says:

Letter From State Food Ad
In reply to a letter from J. L.
Mims. County Food Administrator,
asking about the delivery of flour
by merchants who sold it sometime
ago to be delivered on arrival, the
State Food Administrator writes the
Mr. J. L. Mims,
County Food Administrator,
Edgefield, South Carolina.
Thank you for sending the list of
representatives for the school dis
tricts. I will send each of these a
letter appointing him in a day or
two. Answer to your letter has
been delayed until now on account
of the unusual rush of correspon
dence in regard to flour.
Flour may not be sold to * any
customer in larger quantities than
1-8 to 1-4 barrels in town and 1-4
to 1-2 barrel to country customers.
In no case may any person or con
cern have on hand more than thirty
days' supply. Violation of this
rule is considered hoarding, the
penalty for which is ten thousand
dollars fine or four years in the
penitentiary, or both. A previous
contract for the flour can not be
considered an excuse.

Temperance and Child Train
[Paper prepared by Mrs. W. YV.
Faller, of Edirefield and read at a
recent rneetin? of the local union.]
Why these two should be linked
together is a question easily an
swered. It is in child-hood, to a
great extent, that our habits are
formed, and in training our chil
dren too much stress cannot be laid
on temperance. In speaking of
temperance we do not refer to alco
hol or tobacco only. It reaches out
a great deal farther than that.
Webster tells us that temperance is
habitual moderation in regard to
the indulgence of the natural appe
tites and passions, as temperance in
eating and drinking; temperance in
the indulgence of grief, joy or
mirth, thus we see the field is broad
and its teaching should be especial
ly stressed during the child's forma
tive or character-building period.
The real training in temperance
begins when the mother teaches the
baby correct physical habits. The
child that is fed on good, nutritious,
well cooked food and not too high
ly seasoned food, and takes the
proper exercise will be fortified
against intemperance. Tea and
coffee, especially the latter are the
great intemperate drinks for chil
dren. The food that suits the
adult or working people is by no
means suited to the little ones.
In training the child we should
be very watchful of the habits that
il forms for habits acquiredin child
hood, whether good or bad, are sel
dom broken in adult life, and if
they are at all, it is with the greatest
difficulty. We hear and read much
about the importance of preventing
the formation of bad habits. That
is the theory that was worked out
by Mr. Willard, the father of the
illustrious Frances E. Willard. He
had a way of saying to his wife.
"These children must have habits."
Frances said she grew up with the
impression that the only kind of
habit was a good one.
The mother that would teach her
child patience and perseverance
must not be too ready to take the
tasks from the little ones as soon as
it becomes difficult. It is the abili
ty to overcome difficulties that
marks the successful man or wo
man. No mother would like to
have her daughter develop into a
careless housekeeper, and yet there
are many mothers that constantly
pick up after their daughters in
stead of requiring them to pick up
after themselves, with the result
that|they are cruelly robbed of the
training that would make order and
neatness second nature to them.
The great responsibility of rais
ing and training children has been
a matter of concern for all ages.
Whether or not the problem has
been solved is a debatable question,
but in late years I believe more in
terest is being taken, and care ex
pended, and let us hope that the re
sults obtained may abundantly re
pay us for all our labors.
Just Memorize This.
It ain't the rruns nor armament, nor
funds that they can pay,
But the close co-operation that
makes them win the day;
It ain't the individual, nor the army
as a whole,
But the everlastin' teamwork of
every bloomin' soul.
and V. E. Edwards, Johnston, S. C.
No money will be required with
the application but upon notice
from the County Agent. Farmers
who have signed applications must
deposit with a local bank, associa
tion, or individual, designated by
the Secretary of Agriculture to act
as the farmers' agent for that pur
pose, money to cover the cost of
the fertilizer except the freight
cbaree. After this money is trans
mitted to Washington the nitrate
will be fhipped to the farmers. If
applications for nitrate exceed the
supply of about 100,000 tons the
government will allot the supply on
a pro rata basis among those who
applied. Applications must be re
ceived by February 4.

Getting Ready for the
On the battle fields of Europe men are dying by
thousands. Our sons or brothers or other relatives
will soon be active participants. We fear the roll
of the dead or injured may be brought across the
ocean within a few months, although we hope for
the contrary. These men who have cheerfully of
fered their persons as a sacrifice to a noble cause
are appealing to us by thought, if not by word, for
such assistance as we may render. Every dollar
we expend, everything we do, every sacrifice we
make, will assist in protecting the lives and health
of the patriots who are abroad in defense of our
We must not, we cannot, withold anything that
will be of benefit to those splendid men.
While we all should do our part and make all
sacrifices required of us, the appeal for economy
does not mean that less business should be dc
but it does mean that every possible ounce of w
ing power must be devoted to the National pur
pose. This, we are sure, will be the whole aim of
business in 1918.
