German Soldiers Desert.
That some Germans are tired as
individuals of the war, especially
German soldiers, is evidenced by
their alertness for an opportunity
to leave the confines of the Kaiser's
dominion. In order to prevent sol
diers who are on furlough from leav
ing Germany and getting beyond
reach of German authority three
barbed fences, one of which is charg
ed with electricity, have been erect
ed along the border between Germa
ny and Switzerland. But the eager
ness to be relieved of further service
in the army impels a large number
of soldiers to go "over the top" of
these crucifying barriers. German
hunger in the rear and American fire
in the front is proving too much for

In South Carolina the primary
election is protected by having each
voter enroll or register in person. It
behooves every citizen to see, as far
as the circle of his influence extends,
that every citizen registers for the
primary election, which is to be held
this year on August 27.
If you have not already registered,
go at once to the place of enrollment
provided for your club and register. ,
After you have done that do not stop
there. Urge your neighbors and
friends to register. Procrastination
may deprive them of the right of
suffrage. Registration is made as con
venient as possible for everybody and
ample time is given in which to en
roll. Therefore, if through failure to
register, a man is deprived of voting

Adopt a French Orphan.
One of the most distressing re
sults of the war in France is the hun
dreds of thousands of children that
are left homeless, fatherless, and ma
ny of them motherless. Owing to the
great drain the war has been upon
France for the past four years and
the heavy expense incident to its
continued prosecution, caring for
these unfortunate children has be
come one of the great war problems.
Even in ordinary times with nearly a
million orphans left to be cared for
in less than four years, it would be
an undertaking of no mean propor
tions and it is made ten-fold more
difficult with war continuing with
In order to bear their proportion
of the burdens incident to the war,
hundrds and thousands of American
citizens are "adopting" a French or
phan. By this form of adoption they
merely agree to undertake the sup
port of an orphan, the amount neces
sary to meet this requirement being
$36.50 per annum. A number of be
nevolent and patriotic, organizations
especially among women, are like
wise adopting French orphans. In the
Advertiser of last week appeared a
letter from the mother of a little
French orphan who has been adopt
ed by the ladies who compose thc
Edgefield chapter. ti. A. R. Through
a committee in New York an effort
is being made to have 20.000 French
orphans adopted by liberty-loving
friends of France in America.
Would not some people in Edge

this very commendable undertaking?

nest and fervent patriotic address,
declaring with emphasis that loyalty
and patriotism are the keynote of
the campaign. He stated that this
country is in this war to stay until
the Kaiser is defeated, spending if
needs be the 230 billions of dollars,
this country's total resources, and
raising if necessary an army of 20,
000,000. He favors no reduction of
taxes but a just distribution of the
Hon. R. A. Cooper was the next
speaker and he expressed sincere
gratitude to the people of Edgefield
county for their splendid support in
the past. He stated that he is making
this race without obligating himself
to anyone and that he will unhamper
ed serve the whole people if elected
governor. Mr. Cooper stated that he
is unwilling to tell the people that
he will reduce taxes when he sees
no ground for basing such a promise.
The appropriation for the State Hos
pital cannot be reduced, as we must
provide in the best manner possible
for this unfortunate portion of our
citizenship. The appropriations for
the Confederate veterans can not be
reduced, nor can that for education,
and so on down the line. He stated
that he is not in favor of appropri
ating money unless the tax levy is
sufficient to raise the necessary
amount. Mr. Cooper stated that he
will never set aside the verdict of a
jury until he is fully satisfied that
the jury made a mistake. He advo
cates industrial education and home
economics for our schools, stating
that the national government will add
a dollar to very dollar we spend on
industrial education in our schools.
He would not have the power to
bring this about but would recom
mend it. He declared with emphasis
that the war is an issue and will be
an issue until a complete victory shall
come. In conclusion Mr. Cooper stat
ed that if elected he^will at some
time come back to Edgefield and ask
the people here to help him carry for
ward the constructive work which he
will undertake. He closed amid ap

beautiful bouquets by two sweet lit

Mr. J. M. DesChamps, candidate
for governor, followed Mr. Cooper.
In the beginning Mr. DesChamps
stated that the other candidates for
governor would not say for whom
they would vote for the United States
senate, but that he makes no secret
of his support of Senator Tillman.
He stated that if elected governor
he will raise taxes and no other can
didate has she courage to take that
position. Money must be increased
for education. We must have more
and more education. Mr. DesChamps
did not mince words on any issue.
He waxed eloquent at times, especial
ly in his patriotic utterances, stating
that his family has been fighting for
France for 2,000 years. A prominent
boulevard in Paris is named for the
DesChamps. He kept the audience in
a good humor and his speech met
with hearty responses.
The last speaker among the can
didates for governor was Mr. John
T. Duncan, and as the writer was
called from the room soon after he
began we did not hear him.

Doctors For Prohibition
The speech made by Dr. Arthur
Dean Bevan on the occasion of instal
lation as president of the American' |
Medical Association at its recent v
convention was a speech in favor of 0
national prohibition. 0
"There can be no doubt," said Dr. c
Bevan, "that the greatest single fae- g
tor we can control in the interest of (.
the public health of the nation would
be the elimination of alcoholic drink. *
I want to plead for the united action t
of tho organized medical profession
of the country to secure protection
by law against the injury that drink
is doing our people, not as a political ?
measure but as the most important u
public health measure that could be
secured." He also said that for thc
prosecution of the war "we must
organize the entire nation in the most j ^
efficient way possible, and this cannot
be done without eliminating drink." | r.
One by one the big constructive
forces of the nation line up on the
non-alcoholic side of the question.
The only big force left seems to be
that of the men who make and sell
the alcoholic beverages. And as the
manufacturers turn to the production
of soft drinks, or of alcohol for in
dustrial purposes, or of any of the
numerous allied products for which
there is a great and wholesome de
