the bloody tyrant. But I say th'-.t
if I am ever needed I will respond,
for it is my greatest ambition to
serve the people. Then I say to
you Teutons and Teuton sympa
thizers, that if you believe on him
ye shall have everlasting life of hell
fire and comforts ot pain; so pre
pare ye the way for your lord and
father of the Fatherland."
I think most of us think that this
reward is just for him. I would
rather be a lowly French peasant
and wear wooden shoes than to be
that imperial impersonation of force
and murder known as Kaiser Wil
helm of Germany. Yes, I would
rather live in a mud hut with the
?grape vines growing over my door
than to be that blood-thirsty tyrant
of so called modern Germany.
Sometimes I fret because I am in
this, but when I think what it is
for, I say "no," now is the time or
it will never come. If we neglect
it now, we will face Germany later."
It would never do for a German
army to touch our shore. Some
say that is not possible. Well, if
we do not put our shoulders to the
wheel now a time may come when
even the wheel would not turn with
all the help that we can render.
We have got to send a large army
to meet the Germans on foreign
Then you people at home have
got to back the government by tak
ing liberty bonds, raising more
foodstuffs and by economizing. But
of course when it comes to that I
know Edgefield is doing her part,
and is willing to do more. We
have to let pleasures take care of
themselves and help to take care of
the government, because we are the
ones that make the government.
So I can say the boys of Camp
Jackson are doing fine, and are
ready to go to the front, and if the
dear people of old Edgefield want
to know how to help us, is by help
ing the government as I have inti
mated, for it takes care of us, and
by sendin? a ??ood -word of oheer,
for if you are behind us we are
more than for you. There is no
use of worrying about the people of
Edgefield, for you could tour the
whole country and you would not
find a more energetic, hospitable
and loyal people than old Edgefield,
as well as the whole state of South
Carolina. I think I would rather
live and die there in preference to
any other on the ylobe.
If any one from Edgefield ever
conies over to visit the camp, just
call around to warehouse seven, the
hardware warehouse of the camp,

KOW FARMERS MAY GET
FLOUR WITHOUT MEAL.
Food Administration's Plan for
These Who Have Their Own
Columbia. Feb. 'J.-The national
food administration has given au
thority for a modification of thc
pound-for-pound law in order tc
give relief to the farmer in South
Carolina who has his own curt
ground locally. Much dissatisfactior
has been caused amon<r farmers
who felt that it was unreasonable tc
ask them to buy Northern or West
ern meal when they had their owr
home ground meal which they coule
use. There was np protest concern
ing reduction of consumption ol
flour, but simply that the farmci
did not wish to buy meal from hil
store when he had better meal 01
grits at home.
Under the new rule the farmei
can have his corn ground by a mill
er, who will give him a certificate
This certificate must be filed wit!
the grocer by the farmer, whereupor
he can buy an equal amount of flour
not in excess of half a barrel.
This plan was recommended bj
practically the unanimous vote ol
the county food administrators al
their meeting in Columbia on th(
4th instant, and has been advocatet
by a large number of prominent peo
pie having knowledge of condition;
in South Carolina.
The national administration wa;
by wire immediately consulted aboui
it, and on Saturday gave its consent
to the plan. For the information o]
county food administrators and foot
representatives over this State, mill
ers and farmers, the following is ?
description of the procedure neces
sary for farmers to obtain flour up
on a miller's certificate:

CONVINCED OF TANLAC
BY AID GIVEN WIFE
Husband Says She Added Fif
teen Pounds on Four
Knew Tanlac Would Help Him
Greatly When He Began
lt. And He Tells
Cases in which two or more peo
ple in the same family have been so
greatly benefited by Tanlac that
they have offered a double endorse
ment of this famous master medi
cine are common. When you see a
person relieved of suffering and
mad strong again, it is the most
natural thing in the world for you
to want the same benefits. This is
how Charles E. Whitmore, of 103
Bradford St., Albany, N. Y., hap
pened to take Tanlac.
"My wife, who bad been all run
down and nervous, and getting
weaker right along, began to take
Tanlac," Mr. Whitmore explained.
"Well, of course, I watched the re
sults, and it was wonderful to see
the way it built her up. On four '
bottles she gained fifteen pounds. I 1
had been doubtful about Tanlac, I
but that settled me. When I started 1
Tanlac I could hardly eat one good 1
meal in a whole weak. From suf- 1
fering with a bad stomach I had be
come nervous and restless at night, ?
and all run down. Instead of di- I
gesting, ray food would just lie like .
lead on my stomach and sour and *
ferment and form gas. Because I J
had sour stomach-acid stomach- 1
so long, my mouth had gotten sore. 1
I could not sleep restfully, but c
would wake up every hour or two c
and would roll and toss. I was J
tired in the morning, and by raid- ?
afternoon I was so tired out it seemed '
I couldn't get through the day. I 1
had lost all ambition, and I did not
care. Seeing what Tanlac had done i
for my wife encouraged me to take ?
it, and I was not surprised when it ?
began to brace me up right away, i
It did as much for me as it did for i
her. I slept right through the f
night, woke up rested, with a good *
appetite, and was able to enjoy ray i
meals. My food digested, and the c
gas, bloating and sour stomach dis- t
appeared. I felt like a new man, ?
and the old tired, worn-out feeling <.
went with the rest of my troubles.''' (
When Mr. Whitmore's stomach c
became weak, his system probably t
began to clog with waste matter, f
Wiiat he needed was a good system i
purifier, .stomach tonic and recon- .
stractive, and Tanlac did the work

mill and has it ground. He signs a
certificate which the miller will
have, stating number in his fumiiy
or tenants for which he buys. the
amount of flour he has on hand; and
agreeing to use in his household
equal weights of Hour and substi
tutes. Thereupon the miller signs a
certificate as to the number of
pounds of meal ground. This certifi
cate is then filed with the grocer,
and thereupon the farmer can buy
an equal weight of flour, but in no
case in excess of one-half barrel.
This relieves the oidy difficulty
that has been encountered in South
There has been no objection what
soever to the reduction in consump
tion of flour, and the farmer has
been patriotically ready to reduce
his consumption of flour, but he
very naturally did not desire to buy
more of what he already had an
abundance in Ris home.
