These organizations are to be de
mobilized here. Other organizations
of the Thirtieth Division, which are
to be demobilized at other camps are
to be sent here also for disinfectio
before being sent to the camps of de
mobilization. Therefore, all the offi

Master of Income.
Fortunate are men of any occupa
tion who control their income and do
not permit it to control them. Such
men will not become self-centered;
they will not seek special favors
from the state or government, nor
from individuals with whom they
deal. They will enjoy their income
and use it to their own interest and
to advance the interest of soceity.
Fortunate is every farmer who re
gards his farm as a home where he
may live and enjoy life; where he
may read, study and meditate upon
those things that are better than
wealth; where he may rear his chil
dren and enjoy the companionship
of his family and the fellowship of
It will require large crops and
profitable animals to do this; it will
demand hard work and dilligent study
to supply the necessary comforts of
life; it will bring hardships and de
privations to meet the demands of
progressive farming, but when one is
free he will get pleasure and satis
faction in meeting his obligations.
But this is our privilege as farm
ers and citizens to accumulate hon
estly as much wealth as we can and |
use it for th?-, benefit of ourselves,
our families and for the advancement
of the state and nation.-Farm and
Dairying is Profitable.
Usually no division of activity on
the farm is more profitable for the in
vestment and labor involved than a
few or a herd of good dairy cows.
No Jarm, however smal], operated
by the owner or a tenant, should be
without a few milking cows,, properly
cared for and fed.
The milk or cream from a cow is
marketable throughout the year at
good prices, and furnishes a regular
and steady income every week. Farm
ers of Oklahoma can feed and take I
care of milking cows cheaper than in j
many other sections of our country, j
Milk and cream are in great demand ;
in the state, and has always received
good prices. High prices of dairy j
products are practically assured for j
many years to come.
The most profitable method of
handling dairy cows by the average
farmer is to market cream and use
the skim-milk for bringing up calves
and pigs. As the dairy grows, a mar- j
ket may be found for selling sweet;
cream or milk to a nearby city. I
Dairying is profitable for the fol- j
lowing simple reasons:
1. It provides a steady, cash in-1
come throughout the year.
2. Grass and rough feeds can be
turned into a food product which
commands a high price.
3. It keeps labor on the farm
profitably employed during the en
4. Dairying increases the product
iveness of the land by furnishing ma
nure to fertilize the soil.
5. Dairying can begin with little
capital, and can in a few years bring
prosperity to any farmer or tenant of I

the cemetery fund met Friday after
noon for the purpose- of selecting a

of them it was finally agreed thift six

Death of Stanmore Griffin.
Tuesday morning Mr. Stanmore
Griffin died in Columbia at the home
of his mother, Mrs. James Griffin, af
ter' a lingering illness extending
through many months He became a
victim* of tuberculosis which steadily
sapped his strength and vitality. He
was in his 25 year and was the only
son of his mother. When Stanmore
left Edgefield he was quite a small
boy but is pleasantly remembered by
many of his age and generation. His
body will be brought to Edgefield this
afternoon on the two o'clock train

the village cemetery. He is survived
by his mother and three sisters.
Deserved "Well Done."
After serving the Trinity Church
about 14 years as rector, serving the
churches also at Trenton, Ridge
Spring and Batesburg, Rev. R. G.
Shannonhouse left Edgefield Friday
to enter upon his labors at Fitz
gerald, Ga. May heaven's richest
blessings accompany him and abide
with him and his family. From the
time Mr. Shannonhouse came to
Edgefield from Union, he has been
faithful in season and out of season.
Not only has he served the members
of his parish well but he has been ac
tively identified with thc community
life, having willingly put his shoulder
to the wheel in every movement that
had for its end the uplifting and up
building the community. He will be
greatly missed. Mrs. Shannonhouse
will likewise be greatly missed. Like
her husband, she gave largely of her
life to others, using talents with
which she was richly endowed for the
pleasure and edification of others The
best wishes of The Advertiser and
other friends go with these good peo
ple to their new homo.
Lieut. Dunovant at Home.
Last Saturday night Lisut. R. G.
M. Dunovant arrived in Edgefield
with his honorable discharge in his
pocket. Sustaining the reputation of
hi? gallant ancestor?, Gill Dunovant
volunteered for military service just
before receiving his. diploma, from
Woffqrd College, it being issued to
him later. He went at once to the of
ficers' training camp and soon receiv
ed a commission as lieutenant. In o
bedience to the commands of the war
department, Lieut. Dunovant went
overseas for foreign service in the
summer of 1918 and for four or five
months before the armistice was
signed he was in active service, being
on the front line much of the time.
He relates, with some degree of re
luctance, many war-time experiences
that are thrilling and replete with in
terest. Several weeks ago his com
'pany was sent back to the United
States and was mustered out. All of
Edgefield honors such young men as'
Lieut. Dunovant who gave up every
thing for their country.
Court of Common Pleas.
Instead of extending through two
weeks as was expected at one time,
the court of common pleas, which
convened Monday, will last only three
or four days.
The first case called Monday was
the suit brought by Mr. John W.
Marsh against Mr. W. P. Johnson for
$2,900. Some time in 1917 Mr.
Johnson-sold Mr. Marsh 100 bales of
cotton to be delivered during Octo
ber and November of that year at 20
cents per pound. Mr. Johnson deliver
ed 40. bales and Mr. Marsh brought
suit for the difference between the
contract price, 20 cents, and the price
at which cotton was selling at the
time the cotton was to have been de
livered, 29 1-2 cents, for the remain
ing GO bales. The "jury rendered a
?verdict of $1,535 for the plaintiff,
j The court is engaged this morning
with the suit of Mr. A. C. DePass a
garnst Mr. A. E. Padgett for the re
covery of about one acre of land, the
ownership being in dispute because
of the change in the course of Tur
|key Creek, this stream being the
?boundary line between the lands of
I Mr. DePass and Mr. Padegtt. At the
hour of closing our forms the court
is engaged with this suit. All of the
petit Jurors not sitting in this case
have been discharged.

DIZZINESS IS ANNOYING
As Many Edgefield People
Know Too Well.
When the kidneys are weak or dis
ordering, they fall behind in filtering
the bl^d of poisons. As these poi
sons attack the nerves, the result is
felt - in spells of vertigo, just as
drunkenness will make a man dizay
from the poisoning of alcohol. Dizzi
ness, headache, backache and irregu
larity of the kidney secretions are all
signs of weak or disordered kidneys
and should not be neglected. Use
Doan's Kidney Pills, the home-endors
ed kidney remedy. Read this Edge
field resident's statement:
Mrs. J. P. Samuels, 5 Battle Row,
says: "It was in 1914 that I used
Doan's Kidney Pills for the first time.
At that time my kidneys were giving
me a lot of trouble. The most com
I plaint was with my back and it felt
stiff and lame all the time. I couldn't
tstoop over and dizzy speHs bothered
me. My kidneys acted irregularly
and caused me a g-jat deal of an
noyance, too. F' ally, I began to use
Doan's Kidne Pills and they prompt
ly relieved me of the trouble."

simply ask for a kidney remedy

that Mrs. Samuels had. Foster-Mil

put in a tire, will heal all punc

any way with vulcanizing.
Rappid Sealer at the pres

inflated. It prevents breaking

cause of a large percentage of
