We are profoundly grateful for
the numerous very kind expressions
that have come to us since the last
issue of The Advertiser was pub
lished, which contained our personal
statement concerning the report as
to our receiving large sums Iroin
the government for services ren
dered. These expressions have been
?ade by many friends in person
and through letters. This extract
from a letter written by a business
mao in the county, who is not only
without a peer among his fellows
but whose irood opinion is sought
by many, is highly appreciated:
" I read your 'Personal Card' in
last week's paper, and am writing
a word to express to you my dis
gust and feeling of shame that any
ene would so far forget himself as
to suggest the idea that you 'are
gettingj*icli at the expense of the
government." I wish you would
pay no furtbei attention to such
talk. No good and true man be
lieves them. These rumors ?lo not
deserve the dignity of a passing no

Lines Upon Departure of Pop
u^.ar Edgefield Soldier.
There is a boy who's name is "Rim,"
A good old guy ia he.
But now lie's left and gone to war
To fight for liberty.
How hard it is to give him up,
For he's so dear to us.
But off to France he soon'frill go
And help settle all this fuss.
When we go hack to Edgefield,
And see where he has trod,
Our hearts are deeply sadder.
Still he's in the hands of Go:l,
When wo see the old Oil Mill,
The place where he lovod to work,
It makes our hearts rejoice and leap
To know nothing he would shirk.
"Rim" worked hard at the Mill
Many, many, hot summer days,
And by his will he worked his way.
Up into all our praise.
He's working now for Uncle Sam,
A good and worthy man
And in the name of God we give
This sacrifice for our homeland.
Now that he has left us.
And sad our hearts may be
We still remember dear Old "Rim"
And iraitatt! such a boy as he.
We trust the cruel war will soon end
At last the victory won,
"Rim" and all^ihe boys come bnck,
Then America will be proud of her

Grateful Mother of Anderson
Woman Gives Fraise To
Remedy Proving So
"There is no other medicine to
equal Tanlac. My daughter says so
apd so do I," was the unqualified
endorsement of Tanlac by Mrs. J.
C. Dixon, of 21 lu Main St., Equi
nox, Anderson. The daughter she
referred to is Mrs. J. C. Bailey.
"My daughter was in a terribly run
down condition, had no appetites
and she suffered a great deal with
her nerves. She suffered almost all
thc time with severe pains across
her back, and she frequently com
plained of indigestion.
"She had been in really bad
health for over a year when she be
gan taking Tanlac, but the medi
cine lugan to build her up right
away. The Tanlac relieved those
ills and strenuthenened her ip a
truly wonderful way. Her nerves
were strengthened, her appetite re
turned and she did not have trouble
willi her stomach. I am glad to
recommend Tanlac, for 1 think
lhere is no remedy to equal it."
