pies, Candidate for Sho
Term for United State:
I wish to say to the people of S

am grateful for their confidence,

second race for the short term
United States senate.
I wish to call to the attentioi
every person interested that the
ord will bear me out in ever ha1
stood four-square on every issue
principle that has been advanced
our Government in this time
strife, having been most profour
in sympathy with the allies from
incipiency of hostilities. I have b
deeply concerned since the cloud
war has hovered over our great
tion, and the record will show t
immediately upon a declaration
war I tendered my services to
President and our nation and fr
him I received this acknowledgme
"The President thanks you cordii
for the good will which prompi
your kind message which has heir
to reassure him and keep him'
heart," and ^ince have re-assui
my position and sincere interest
every way possible, as further e
denced by the following letter
June 17, 1918, td Mr. John Lowe
chairman of .the Special Committ
for War Service, Washington, D.
"I am in receipt of your letter

card which is herewith returnedf
I wish to say that I am in the cai
paign for Governor of this Stat
but. nevertheless', I stand ready

at any time I may be needed. I w
serve in any capacity and will do
for only my actual expenses. I wou
be glad to do so for nothing if I we
financially able to support myse
while in the service.
I wired Hon. Woodrow Wilso
President of the United States, (
April 6, 1917, as follows: 'Since
State of War has been declared b
tween the United States of Amerii
and Imperial German Governmen
I extend to you my services in ar
capacity.' This telegram expresses ir
position now as weil as then."
This record is not shown as a ma
ter of defense, and any statement (
insinuation to the contrary by an
man or set of men is wilful, delibe:
ate and untrue. I further wish to ad
that I am not running for an offic
that, will detain me long from th
service. The term of the office I nc
hold as attorney general of Sout
Carolina, to which I have been thre
times' elected will expire in Januar
next, and that of the short term i
United States senate expires Marc
3rd next, and whether elected or de
feated it will only be a short tim
before I will answer the call of m
Government under the recent Draf
Act, and will be with the boys wh
have gone forth in this great cause
and will do my part then and thor
for my opponents and those agains
me in this election as freely as I wil
for those who are with me and hav
j been with me in this political ambi
tion, and I am proud to say that th'
time has come or will soon be a
hand when I can don the khaki ii
defense of our Government and thi:
great cause for humanity, freedom
liberty and justice.
In the discharge of the duties bj
the one who is elected to the Unitec
States Senate, it is encumbent upoi
him to cooperate and exercise his ev
ery power to aid the President anc
the nation in its efforts to carr j
forth to a successful conclusion thc
great undertaking before the natior
and the allied world. I am heartilj
in favor of sending every available
man in America, as went forth the
ancient hosts of the Lord tc bring,
victory and glory unto the cause o?
humanity, and I wish to reassure the
people of South Carolina that my ev
ery effort will be set forth with this
sole purpose in view, returning from
the seat in the senate to the army to
do my bit as a soldier in actual ser
vice, which I feel will be a greater
honor and for a nobler cause than
any other in the sight of God and
As to the other issues, the short
time in thc senate would doubtless
give no opportuity to bring them to
a successful conclusion. They can be
j properly presented and concluded in
due course of time. As to this, I wish
to reiterate that I believe in support
ing labor in its legal efforts and pro
tecting capital in its lawful invest
ments for they go hand in hand and
their intercourse should be compati
ble. Also, that some enactments
should be made to adjust the condi
tions of labor confronting the farm
ers and others, and that the allot
ment allowed dependants should be
handled through the various local
boards and withheld from those who
refuse to work on account of having
this donation from the government.
The farmers and homes in South
Carolina are feeling the effects of
the independence of those who are
sharing in this bounty. I do not be
lieve in deprivations or injustice,
but I do believe that the "Work or
Fight" system should apply to every
?able bodied man and woman in Am
Cold Spring News.
The dry weather is causing the
farmers to have a lot of work to do
as the cotton is opening fast.

MRS. MILES SAYS SHE FEELS
"LIKE A NEW WOMAN"

"I am now twenty-nine pounds
heavier than I was when I began
using Tanbie and 1 feel like a new
woman in every way," said Mrs.
Annie Miles, residing at 445 Ever
green Ave., Jacksonville, Fla., a
short time ago.
"For twenty long years I suffered
with stomach trouble and indiges
tion and tried everything I over
heard of for it, but it kept getting
worse all the time," she continued. I
"I just had to force myself to eat
enough to keep alive, and what I
did eat caused me to suffer hours of
agony from gas that would rise on
my stomach. I had awful head
aches and dizzy spells constantly
and was so nervous I could hardly
sleep. I fell off in weight and
got so weak and no account that I
felt that I could never be well
"One of my neighbors tola me
what Tanlac had doDe for her, and
I started taking it. I began to
pick up right away. I kept on
gaining until I had gained twenty
nine pounds, and my strength has
come back to me in force. I can
eat anything I want and everything
I want and everything I eat tastes
good. My nerves are all right now
and I sleep like a child at night
and get up in the morning feeling
fine. Tanlac? has made me strong
and well again."
