Director General McAdoo has issued
an order restoring advertising contracts
between railroads and newspapers which
he annuled soon after he took over the
management of the railroads. No new
contracts can be made but those already
' in existence at the time the order was
issued by Mr. McAdoo will be carried
out. It is clearly stated that no con
tracts shall extend beyond the present
calendar year, but it is hoped that by
the close of the year some definite ac
tion by congress will be taken that
will provide for the future.
Disloyalty Should Not be Tolerated.
The Germans-and pro-Germans in this
country should be given tb understand
that disloyalty to this government, the
one which gives security to their fami
lies and protection to their property,
will not be tolerated in word or deed.
If they are not satisfied to be an Amer

should go back to Germany. This is
no time for disloyalty on the part of
anyone. Our young men are being
sent abroad to tight for liberty and the
rights of humanity, and nobody, we
make no exceptions, should be allowed
to sow seeds ot" discord and disloyalty,
making it necessary, in the end, that a
greater number of our boys be sent

Interesting Letter From Edge
field Young Man in Naval
I arrived here the 10th of March.
This is not a regular training camp,
only a detention camp. That is the
fellows who enlist are sent here for
a period of SI days, andar? not
allowed liberty of any kind in three
weeks, provided no epidemic of
auy kind breaks out. If an epidemic
of any kind breaks out in a compa
ny they are sent out from the camp
to a place called Piney Grove and
are in strict quarantine for a period
of from two to 4 months. I am
lucky enough to be in a company
that hasn't been quarantined so far.
There were several companies quar
antined right around us. J. think
life in the navy is much better than
the army, as we don't have so much
drilling to do. Of course, we have
some duties but none to amount to
anything. The camp is about six
miles from Charleston and is in a
cluster of long leaf pines. Every
thing is kept mighty nice and clean
and we have to live right in every
respect of the word. All sorts of
entertainments are provided for the
boys in blue, also religious services.
There are men hero from all
walks of life and the st.range part
of it to rae is most of the men are
from the north and north-west. I
guess there are about 3000 men
here and I only know of about
seven boys from South Carolina.
Two of them are Maurice and J. F.
White, formerly of Edgefield coun
ty, now McCormick county, and I
assure you it is quite a pleasure to
know that two home boys are here
and I go around to their sections
pretty often and like-wise they come
to see me. Thc fare here is of the
best and no one can complain of
their rations, as we have no two
meals alike. The only thing I don't
like is that we don't get any sugar
hardly in our coffee and tea, but I
am getting accustomed to it now
and can relish it O. K. All of the
fellows here know mess call andas
soon as it is sounded there is a mad
rush for their places in time.
We get up at 5:45 in the morn
ing then have exercises for about
15 minutes and I understand the ex
ercises are very beneficial, if fol
lowed out right. To sum the whole
thing up I think evejry fellow that
can ought to enlist in the navy and
du hi? bit. 'I miss Tiie Advertiser
and as soon as I am stationed I will
subscribe for it. Would be glad to
hear from you or any one else from
home that desires to write to me.

TheTen Commandments of War
Dr, Seaman A. Knapp once ren
dered a momentous service to the
cause of agricultural progress by
summarizing in ten brief sentences
tiie fundamentals of good farming:
and for thousands of people ever
since, Dr. Knapp's " Ten Command
ments of Agriculture" have stood
out like beacon lights in an oceau
storm of language. As this new
year begins the first new year in
moic than half a century which has
found America at wai-it bas seem
ed lo us that some one might ren
der a similar service by analyziug
the countless appeals that have b?en
made to our people, and then epi
tomizing the supreme things which
America asks of the farmer in this
j;i>i<-"The Ten Commandments
of War-Time Agriculture," let us
;i!l them. We believe the ten
iltings mentioned below indicate aa
briefly as it is possible to do the
main things which America asks of
the Southern larmer:
1. Thai he plant a maximum
acreage in food crops.
.i. That he strive for maximum
productiveness of every acre.
3. That he equip and inspire
?very farm worker for maximum
4. That he arrange for a maxi
mum production of meat and dairy
5. That he double garden pro
0. That all women and children
oe enlisted in canning and poultry
7. That every member of the
family aid food conservation.
8. That wise and profitable
marketing of crops be promoted as
a stimulus to increase production.
9. That economy and thrift be
practiced and the resultant savings
lent to America.
10. That all schools, all farm
ers' organizations, all women's or
ganizations, and all business men's
organizations co-operate to give iou
l>er cent efficiency lo this pro
gram.- The Progressive Farmer.

To the Farmers
We are Jobson System dealers
for this county, and as such are ac
tively engaged in bringing the com- !
mon sense methods of easier and 1
more profitable farming to every .
nook and corner of our seclion.
These methods and the remarka- 1
hie Jobson plow have received the 1
endorsement of great Agricultur
ists, Slate officials and practical ?''
farmers all over the country, and
these benefits are being extended to
all parts of the country at a rate '
thal certainly proves its merit and j
genuine, practical advantage. No .
farmer can alford to overlook the ;
opportunity of a thorough investi
gation of this system before going
further with his spring work.
The Jobson plow has no equal in
preparing the land (late or early,
wet or dry) before planting, and it
is also of extraordinary value in ;
working crops and in getting ready
for second crops. In fact, it is
something the farmer needs every
month in the year. A little investi
gation demonstrates this beyond

The Best Way to Sell That Farm.
Yon want to sell your farm? Let
me tell you how to go at. it.
First, go ont in the road and im
agine you aro wanting to purchase
this particular farm: look at it with
the buyer's eye S.M- how the bushes
have grown up in th" fence corners;
how dingy the house looks: how
badly if Ti"ods repainting. Notice
bow bare the pasture looks, and see
how the hills aro washed.
Thc orchard needs trimming bail
ly; and that lino of fence surely is
in bad sh a pi. Tho hen-house roof
is looking bad, too: in fact the
whole farm is run down.
Of course those bushes will have
to be grubbed; the house painted;
that pasture will have to be reseed
ed and those washes filled: the or
chard must be trimmed; tho fence
mended, and the roof fitted. No
one would want such a looking
And by the time al! this is done
you need a rest, (io out in the
road and take ano!her look at tho
farm; and no doubt you'll want to
keep it yourself, it will look so good
to you. - Mrs. II. A. C., in The
