Third Liberty Loan.
To the People of Edgefield County:
The Campaign for Subscriptions
to the Third Liberty Loan will
close on May 4th. I am especially
anxious that a Bond of the Third
Liberty Loan be subscribed for by
each ramil) in Edgefield County by
this date. I am publishing a let
ter below which sluws that a com
plete record of all subscribers to
the Third Liberty Loan will be
made and filed in the public records
of our state for future generations
to see who went on this roll of hon
or with their means in their coun
try's defense at this critical hour
when our sons are offering up their
lives every hour on the battle

It is practically certain that if a
route for the Dixie Highway is se
lected for this part of the country
it will traverse Edgefield county,
leading from the Greenwood coun
ty line by way of Edgefield, thence
by way of the Pine House on to
Augusta. The Asheville-Greenville.
Greenwood delegation which stop
ped over in Edgefield for a few
hours while making a hurried in
spection lour of the route for the
Highway expressed themselves as
favoring the route by Edgefield.
This highway is the main thorough
fare from Chicago to Florida and
wheo completed there will be all -
the-year-round-travel over it. The
establishment of the Highway will
place Edgefield more conspicuous
ly on the map and will also be
the means of largely increasing the
patronage of the new Strom hotel.
The road has not yet been se
cured. In fact, there is much work
to be done if is brought this way.
So never fail to speak favorably of
the Dixie Highway, thereby crea
ting such a strong sentiment in its
favor that when the time eotne? for
it to be constructed our people will
undertake the work in real earnest

AGATHA A. WUUDSON,
Edisto District Secretary.
Mr. J. L. Mime Corrects False Re
In order to correct a false and un
just report, to the effect that I am
"growing rich off the government,"
I feel that I should make a statement
concerning thc patriotic service
which I have rendered, and will con
tinue to render, at any personal sac
rifice, as long as the call of duty
comes to me.
It is reported that I am receiving
$10 per day as County Food Admin
istrator. Thc fact is I HAVE NOT
RECEIVED any compensation up
to this time and* WILL NOT hereaf
ter receive a penny for this public
service. I have not only received no
compensation but have had, printing
done for this work at my. own ex
pense. The State Food Administra
tor suggested that I could raise the
money to defray the expense of
printing by public subscriptions, but
instead of soliciting money from
others. I bore the expense myself.
Notwithstanding the fact that thc
work of the board requires much of
my time now each clay, as a member
of the local or exemption board I
have not received a penny for any
services rendered since February 15
and will not receive anything here
after for this service. Between De
?cember 15 and February 15, the
members of thc local board were
paid 10 cents each by thc govern
ment for each registrant classified,
this ?icing just what the judge of
probate is allowed for issuing a
liquor permit. No one could justly
charge a member of the local board
with "getting rich off the govern
ment" upon such small compensation
as that. The clerk of the local
board receives a monthly salary, but
the members of the board have re
ceived no compensation in any form
since February 15.
The several weeks of strenuous
won-: which I devoted last fall to
thc raising of more than $3,800 for
the army Y. M. C. A. work, when on
ly $2.100 was asked from this coun
ty, was purely a patriotic service for
which I received no remuneration.
The efforts which I have put forth
in the Liberty Bond campaign have
lil: owise been without compensation.
It seems strange that one who has
underdone many harrowing experi
ences, one who has had many un
pleasant duties thrust upon him and
who probably has had to bear great
er and gravel- responsibilties, through j
various public duties, than any other
citizen in Edgefield county has been
called upon to bear since the Civil
War should thus be unjustly accused
of "growing rich off the govern
ment." In conclusion, I trust that I
will be pardoned for saying, by way
of answering the charge of "profit
eering" through public service, that
I probably have made greater sacri
fices during the past 10 months,
through the constant neglect of my
private interests, in order to render
patriotic service, than any other man
in the county.

Very Sad Death.
Edfiegeld mourns the death of
Mrs. (-Trimble, who died in Green
ville ?Sunday night. This lady who
was widely beloved in Edgefield is
better known here as Miss Virginia
Johnson. She was ill but a short
time, pneumonia being the cause of
her death. Besides her husband,
Lieut. Grlmble, who is a member of
the Medical Corps at ('amp Sevier,
she leaves a little daughter eleven
months of age. xMrs. Grirnble's
brother, Mr. Linwood Johnson, left
Sunday to be at thc bedside of his
Mass Meeting and Celebration.
Saturday a very large number of
colored people congregated in Edge-!
field, ami the order and deportment
were perfect throughout the day.
This great throng came to partici
pate in the annual emancipation cel
ebration, and also to attend a patri
otic rally which was held in the
court house. Owing to duties in
connection with the local board, the
editor of The Advertiser was un
able to attend. The leading ad
dress of the day was delivered by
Dr. C. T. Walker of Augusta.
Hon. J. Wm. Thurmond, Mr. A. E.
Padgett and Mr. E. J. Minis were
also invited to speak, Mr. Padgett
presenting the Liberty Bonds and j

"Yes, I was actually afraid to
look in a mirror for fear of what I
would see, and I think it is a duty
to tell about it," said Mrs. Annie
L. Marshall, of 313 Lafayette St.,
Schenectady. N. Y., as she bedail a!
"I was pale and thin and used to
lie awake at night," she explained.
"This sleeplessness and nervousness
finally affected my throat, as I could
not speak above a whisper. The
least sound frightened me and I got
so I could not bear to have people
talk to me.
"I was so weak I could not do
my work, and 1 would have to
do ray work, and I would have to
throw myself on the bcd for rest
before I finished. I just suffered
all the time and there seemed to be
no joy in life for me. My sister
told me about Tanlac, a new medi
cine for weak, run-down people,
and begged me to take it. I had
no faith in it, I had tried so many
medicines, but I knew 1 could not
feel any worse, so I got a bottle of
"x\nd, oh, what a change! I be
gan to feel, better right away, and
my appetite increased as I ate three
guod meals a day of really nour
ishing food. I bogan to sleep sound
ly. As I began to build up, my
color became better, my eyes bright
er and I gained weight. Soon the
neighbors began to speak of my
improved appearance. My nervous
ness gone, I began to enjoy hearing
people talk and like their company.
It was no task to do ray house
work, and after I had done it I
could dress up and go calling or to
the movies. It was so different,
and it all occurred in just a little
