Seven consecutive days spent in
the court house examining regis
trants, as was done last week by the
members of the local board, is equal
to the arduous trench duty of Eu

weeks elapse there will be three
worn-out war veterans here in Edge
field. _^ _
Dr. Lightfoot in Edgefield.
The Mission Society of the Bap
tist church, having as their subject
on Friday afternoon last, "Camp
Evangelism," invited Dr. E. M.

made by the audience for a phono
graph at the turberculosis hospital

was heir1 after the address.
Coulv* Be Infinitely Worse.
It is extremely unfortunate that
farra labor has to be disturbed at
this seasou through the draft sys
tem. Some farmers are yet unde
cided about their plans for the year.
However, Germany must be de
feated and in order to accomplish
this end an army has to be raised as
early as possible, and in order to
send an army to Europe men have
to be sent first to the training
camps. All must therefore be pa
triotic and heroically rise to the oc
casion, making whatever sacrifice is
required of us. As bad as our situ
ation is, even the woist of us, it is
not one-tenth as distressing as that
of the European nations. Condi
tions could be infinitely worse.
Miss Elizabeth Woodson Army
Miss Elizabeth Woodson (Army
Nurse Corps) was notified on Satur
day to proceed without delay to the
base hospital at Camp Gordon to
enter upon the duties as a regular
army nurse. Later, as soon as the

fully made up, she will leave for

Miss Woodson is a daughter of
Mrs. Agatha Woodson, whose two
sons are in a machine gun battalion
at Camp Wheeler.

The board has completed the

cept those who have failed to fill

The rtquirement for successful
farm managers in the future will be
the ability of young men to operate
machinery rather than their physi
cal strength to handle hand imple
ments. There was a time when
strong men able to use the hoe, the
ax and the grub hoe were in great
demand as farm hands. Today the
farm hand who can UBe machines
and the latest improved farra imple
ments are wanted.
But successful farm managers are
few. There are still farra hands,
though, they are not as easily hired
as formerly. Hut young men with
the ability necessary to manage the
farm are very hard to find.
The time will come, doubtless,
when land will be so high thal it
will take young men without capi
tal many years to pay for a home.
This is true now in some localities.
But it does not seem that the time
will ever come when good farm
managers will not have great op
portunities. Those who are com
p?tent to manage farms will have
far greater opportunities to earn
enough to pay for farms of their
own than many employed in cities
The boys and young men on
farms should have every opportuni
ty to learn some of the details of
farm management as well as farm
work. Whether they live on farms
of their own or seek employment
on other farms they should know
how to manage the farm.-Farm
CAN'T DENY IT.
If This Had Happened Elsewhere
Instead of Edgefield You Might
The average man is a doubter.
This is not surprising-the. public
have been humbugged so frequent
quentlythey are skeptical. Proof
like the following will stand inves
tigation. It cannot be disputed.
W. B. Paul, painter it paper
hanger, Butler St., Edgefield, says:
"I was bothered by kidney trouble
nearly all my life. It grew worse
after an attack of measles. Doan's
Kidney Pills removed the pains and
strengthened and regulated my kid
neys. My health became better than
it had been in many years."
Over Three Years Later Mr. Paul
said: ''I have very little trouble
with my kidneys now. When I am
bothered slightly that way, howev
er, Doan's Kidney Pills never fail
to relieve me."
Price (?Oe. at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills-the same
that cured Mr. Paul, Foster-Mil
