Death of Mr. Lewis Wood.
Saturday Mr. Lewis Wood came
to Edgefield in his buggy, being ac
companied by his mother. Upon
reaching home Saturday afternoon,
Mr. Wood fell upon the ground un
conscious as he got out of his bug
gy. He suffered a stroke of
apoplexy,' passing away Sunday af
ternoon without regaining con
sciousness. The sudden death of
Mr. Wood was a great shock to his
friends and loved ones. So far as
his Edgefield friends could tell
while he was here Saturday, he was
as well as usual. The funeral was
conducted at Antioch Monday by
Rev. J. W. Kesterson. He will be
greatly missed by his neighbors and
and a large circle of friends.
Besides his devoted wife, who
was Miss Gardner before her mar
riage, Mr, Wood is survived by 10
children, Grover Cleveland Wood,
William Glenn Wood, Mrs. Jerry
Robertson, Mrs. Mattie Robertson,
Lewis E. Wood, Mrs Minnie Ouzts,
Miss Angelle Wood, Frank B..
Wood and Miss Lillian Wood,
Two of sons, Grover and Henry
are in the army, having volunteered

Another Call For Men.
The calls for men for military
duty are being made oftener than
formerly by the Provost Marshal
General. Small increments, instead
of large ones, are being ordered into
camp now. The board has received
a call for four white men to be en
trained between the 1st and 10th of
May. The exact date will be an
nounced later. This increment will
be sent to Fort Scriven, Ga., near
Savannah. This is the first time
that men, other than those volun
tarily inducted, have been ordered
beyond the State.
Many persons do not understand
why the local board does not draft
and announce the names of the men
as soon as the notice of the call ap
pears in the newspapers. The offi
cial notice to the men of their hav
ing been ordered must contain the
exact date aud hour to report for
entrainraent, and this information
has never been furnished the board
for several days after the official
call is made. The board ALWAYS
HAS A WELL FOUNDED REA
SON for every act, or for a failure
to act, as the public mayview the

the board should not be indulged

The New Hotel.
Matters looking to the erection of
a modern hotel fronting on the pub
lic square are gradually taking defi
nite shape. Mr. VV. A. Strom,
than whom no better man could
be placed at the bead of such
an enterprise, is already makicg pre
liminary arrangements. He will
soon open a biickyard in Edgefield
and make all of the rough brick
needed tor the hotel. Of course,
the pressed finishing brick will be
bought elsewhere. Mr. Strom can
also have the heavy rough lumber,
of which there is a large quantity in
such a building, sawed from bis own
woods, thereby effecting another
large saving. He hopes to have
actual work of construction under
Furloughs for Agricultural
The local board has received reg
ulations governing the issuing of
furloughs for men in the training
camps to engage in agriculture
, where they-are needed at home on
the farm. A supply of application
blanks for the granting of these
furloughs have also been received
by the board, and they will be sent
to men in camp or given to the
parents or other relatives of the
men upon request. The application
is made for the furlough and filed
with the local board, but the authoi
ity of granting the furlough is
given solely to the commanding of
ficer of the unit to which the sol
dier is connected. The regulations
state that furloughs will not be
granted to men who are soon to be
transferred from the camp at which
they are at present. In other words,
no furloughs will be granted in
cases which would result in an in
jury to the military service. The
local board has no authority to
grant the furloughs. This is dis
tinctly stated in the regulations.
The impression prefails that, as the
need for men to assist our Allies in
France is very great, but few fur
loughs will be granted.
To Ministers of Edgefield
I have received request from Mr.
E. W. Robertson, State Chairman
Liberty Loan Committee, that I
communicate with all clergymen
and ministers of Edgefield county
that Sunday, April 21, be observed
as Liberty Loan Sunday, and that
each devote a portion of his sermon
at least in making an appeal to his
people of the vital necessity of back
ing the boys at the front by the
purchase of Liberty Bonds. This
request comes from the following
order from Washington:
"Secretary McAdoo has designa
ted April 21 as Liberty Loan Sun
day. He is sending a letter direct
to one hundred and fourteen thous

Liberty Loan sermons- Will you

NOT DUE TO SEX ALONE.
Edgetield Women Have Learned
the Cause of Many Mysterious
Pains and Aches.
Many women have come to know
that sex isn't the reason for all
backaches, dizzy headaches and
urinary disorders. Men have these
troubles, too, and often they come
from kidney weakness. To live
simply, eat sparingly, take better
care of one's self and to use Doan's
Kidney Pills, is bound to help bad
kidneys get better. There is no
other remedy so well recommended
by Edgeiield people. Read this

lowing statement April 12, 1911:
"Several years ago I used Doan's
Kidney Pills when I was suffering
with a weak and lame back. My
sides and-hips were sore and lame
and I couldn't sleep well on that
account. Doan's Kidney Pills rid
me of that attack of kidney trouble
and I am glad to endorse t.hem."

have proved themselves splendid
when I have used them in the past.
