It is a noteworthy fact that the
Kaiser has not recently made a boast

When the Kaiser takes refuge in

If the Germans can not be made
to feel the war at the point of the
bayonet on their own soil, they should
be made to feel it through EXACT

The weather man seems to be
working hand-in-hand with the fuel
administrator. We are now well up
in November and but little fuel has
been consumed this fall.
, A great need in the South is for
our citizens to arouse from their po

election. Too few of our men take
the general election seriously.

The United War Work is a cause
that should appeal with irresistible
force to every patriotic heart. Such
a cause, unlike Liberty Bonds and
War Savings Stamps, is a real test
?f our patriotism.'
The American people, together j
with the other Allies, will not be de
ceived by Germany's camouflaged
constitution. There must be a real
reconstruction in Germany before
there eau be permanent peace.
Edgefield county will be in the
forefront in its hominy supply this
fall but may "lag in the number of
porkers being made ready for slaugh

now, is hog and hominy a-plenty.
There was a time when every pos

Begin Food Crop.
Now is the time to begin planning
for a large food crop for 1919. It
will be recalled that when the Food
Administration found it necessary to
take over the sale and distribution
of flour last year it was then too late
for ma/iy farmers to provide home
grown flour for their own pantries.
Now is the time to sow wheat for
next year's harvest. Farmers cannot
only increase the food supply of the
the country by sowing largely of
wheat but they can be independent
to some extent of the Food Adminis
tration by having their own home
grown food products in their pantry.
Be patriotic and independent by pro
ducing large food crops in 1919. Be
gin right by sowing a large acreage
United War Work.
The subscribing for Liberty bonds
and the purchasing of War Savings
Stamps involved no sacrifice on the
part of our people. By this means
scores and hundreds of persons have
been benefitted by being forced in
1 a way to save some of their earnings.
? What we hold now in government se
curities in the form just mentioned
is no test of patriotism.
We will, however, within the next
10 days have appeals made to vs
for contributions to the .United War
Work which will be a test not only
of our patriotism but of our appre
ciation of the sacrifices that our boys
?"over there" are making for us. The
! man who gives one dollar who should
! give ten dollars merits scorn rather
than praise and likewise the man
who gives five dollars when he is fi
I nancially able to give twenty-five dol
lars proves that he is selfish, unpa
triotic and lacking in appreciation of
the sacrifices that the American sol
diers are making for his home and
j By contributing to the United War
Work we are giving direct aid to our
boys. The money will be expended
under government supervision for
their personal comfort and pleasure.
The goverment can not provide
wholesome diversion for our boys
during their leisure hours, but the
Y. M. C. A. and other kindred organ
izations can and will provide these
things if we will only supply neces
sary means. Surely no appeal should
have to be made to our people here
at home who in the main are prosper
ing because of the war which our
boys are waging. Should not we wil
lingly share with them this accumu
lated wealth? We feel confident that
the people of Edgefield county will
go far beyond the amount, $11,000,
that is asked of them.
Sugar Allowance Increased.
The following telegram was re
ceived by William Elliot, food ad
ministrator for South Carolina, from
Herbert Hoover at Washington:
"The rapid manufacture of the
new Beet Sugar crop in the West
and the new crop Louisiana Cane
sugar in' the South together with the
freer railway transporta*.!? n condi
tions, the reductions that we have
in the consumption of sugar in the
manufacturing trades and the patri
otic conservation in the past four
months enables uso to increase the
household allowance of sugar from
two pounds per person per month to
three pounds per person per month
with the same ratio to public eating
places as from November 1st. This
makes good our promise to increase
the household allowance of sugar at
the earliest possible moment that our
supplies would justify and make it
possible fo rthe householder to more
freely use the apple, cranberry, and
rrape fruit products and the use of
the fruits canned during the summer
"The regulations are also revised
to the extent that any person may
purchase his whole family allowance
at one time if he so desires; that is,
any family may purchase a month's
supply, for the entire family in one
purchase from tb?e retail trades."
Yours very truly,
Food Administrator for South Caro
