July 18, 1918.
Hon. G, L. Toole,
Aiken, S. C.
Dear Mr. Toole:
Y'our highly appreciated letter re
ceived. They are happy minutes,
hours and days when a soldier gets
a letter like yours from God's peo
ple at home. Your acquaintances
over here surely want you elected
to Congress. I hope that I will be
able to congratulate you in my next
letter. If they send you to France,
I hope to see you there. You would
like France. We are putting up a
hard fight, and the French people
are full of smiles when they see an
American. ' Oui troops are passing
through the town daily. The wo
men are raking and gathering the
crops. Every town has it* super
visor, who looks after the farming
interest. The country is great for
wheat, oats and rye, but I have not
seen any cotton or corn. Spring
sown wheat is ripe, but it is impos
sible to gather it now while there is
so much fighting ?o?ng ou.
Best regards to your family.

Lanham Dorn our manly boy of
fifteen with bright prospects of mak
ing a strong man and true, has been
?raftcd by the all wise and loving
One to serve in the realm of glory
where there is no death.
Therefore, be it resolved by the
Sunday school of Che First Baptist
church of Edgefield, that while we
deplore his carly going and shall miss
his faithful attendance, we recog
nize the right of our Father to call
His children to Kim, we bow to His
decree and say, ''Thy will be done."
That wc extend our loving sym
pathy to his honcrcd Christian par
ants and all of the dear ones of his
family in this great bereavement.
That a copy of this memorial be
spread upon a page of our minute,
book and a copy be sent to his family.

A Streng Endorsement of the
Candidacy of Hon. R. A.
Cooper and a Stirring Ap
peal to the Democracy of
Viewing the political situation in
South CaroliLna from the stand
point of a layman who has taken no
active interest in politics in a num
ber of years except to invariably ex
ercise that highest duty and prerog
ative of every American citizen; the
right to vote for whom I conceive to
be the best fitted men for public of
fice, and unquestionably if we ad
here to principle and let it guide us
in determining our choice for gover
nor in the approaching primary there
will not be the remotest doubt of
the election of that "Simon-pure,"
unwavering and intensely loyal Dem
ocrat, Robt. A. Cooper, whose record
has always been unassailable, and as
spotless as it is possible for human
beings to attain.
Speaking of loyalty-in a crisis
like this, when our nation is involv
ed in the nfost stupendous war in all
history against a barbaric and power
ful foe, when our gallant boys, the
very flower of young manhood, are
freely sacrificing their precious lives
on the altar of our country to pre
serve the liberty of all nations, to
make the world safe for democracy,
to forever destroy German Militar
ism and so that America will always
be safe from the ruthless Hun in
vader, and safe for our women and
children to live until the Millenium
shall dawn-in these momentous and
testing times it strikes me that loy
alty, unswerving loyalty to our na
tional government in the successful
prosecution of war, is the supreme
issue of the hour; and that it is the
imperative duty of every red-blooded
patriotic Democratic voter to rigidly
apply this test to all candidates, both
State and National and whenever
there is a trace of disloyalty in the
record of any candidate to without
J exception, vote against any such can
The ?splendid official and public
record of R. A. Cooper is exemplary,
whether as an exponent of law and
order when he served as solicitor in
his circuit, which position he filled
for a number of years with such
ability and distinction, his promin
ence in church work and last but not
least, his untainted and flawless rec
ord as a consistent supporter and
defender of the administration of
our great and matchless President,
Woodrow Wilson, should command
for him at once our favorable con
sideration which will undoubtedly
make him the logical choice of a
large majority of Edgefield Demo
crats on next Tuesday and which will,
I confidently predict, be the fore
runner of his triumphant election as
governor of our proud old Palmetto
Bleasism in South Carolina is not
dead, but only sleeping in a semi
morbid condition from the heavy
dose of political ether administered
to its leader two years ago, and on
the 27th inst, they will concentrate
their mightiest elTort and voting
strength on Blease for senator and
Richards for governor, so let the an
ti Blease voters put the seal of their
condemnation on Blease's disloyal ut
terances and record by concentrating
their votes solidly on Dial and Coop- !
er and thus demonstrate to a watch- 1
ing nation that we are a loyal, liber- 1
ty-loving, patriotic people. " A word .

To the Voters of Edgefieid County: ?
Thc congressional campaign has I

three opponents I think 1 have sue- i
cessfully answered. (
Now that the campaign is over I
warn my friends against the circu
lation of eleventh campaign stories. ,
Inasmuch as I believe in fighting j
fair I do not intend to make any
charges against my opponent* other 1
than those made in their presence at
the campaign meetings, and I do 1
not want my frienas to make any 1
charges against them. If any ad- 1
ditional charges are made against 1
me by my enemies, 1 think you will
agree with me that they should have '
been made while the meetings were 5
on, and I had opportunity to an
swer, and the fact that they were (
not made at that time should be s
sufficient evidence of their untruth i

We have in this country 104 vari
2ties of domestic fowls which have
been described and recognized as
standard breeds. There are various
Ldassifications. Among these are such
terms as fancy and practical; eggs
[ind meat; according to their place of
For instance, all of thc recognized
breeds are said to be practical except
the Bantams and Games, which are
said to be fancy or ornamental.
Under the so-called egg breeds are
irrouped most of those that originat
?d around or near the Mediterranean
Sea. They are active birds, largely
non-sitting, and do not as a rule do
ivell in close confinement.
Thc Mediterranean breeds are Leg
horns, Minorcas, Spanish and Anda
lusian. They are small, of excellent
type and noted for the large number
3f eggs they lay.
The Leghorns are typical and the
most popular of this group. They are
lardy; feathers lay snugly to the
aody; weight is from three to five
The American races contain what
s "generally known as general pur
pose fowls or dual purpose fowls. The
Drpington is an English breed, the
ethers are all of American origin.
Among the most popular are the
Plymouth Rocks and other Rocks, Wy
tndottes, Rhode Island Reds, etc.
In the Asiatics, we have the Cochin
3hina, the Bramas and the Lan
mangs. These are, generally speak
ng, the meat breeds. The French is
represented by the Houdan; the
Dutch, by the Hamburgs; Indian, by
