Governor Cooper Designates
Day for Welfare Canvas.
Governor Cooper issued a procla
mation designating April 7, 8 and 9
as Jewish war relief days in South
Carolina and calls upon the people of
the state to respond to the appeals
for starving peoples in Europe. The
For centuries the great majority of
Jewish peoples have been oppressed
politically, and in other ways have
been harrassed. They have had no na
tion and no home, excent under the
dominion of other people. But the
Jews have not allowed their race to
be lost, despite autocracy and the un
friendly attitude of many of their Eu
roDean rulers. Palestine, their ancient
home, has long been under the heel
of the cruel Turk; old Russia, where
approximately half of the 14,000,000
Jews of the world reside, was none
too kind to them. Autocratic Austria
Hungary, where another million lived
gave them small opportunity for self
assertion. Relatively few Jews have
enjoyed the freedom of England or
France, and only some 3,000,000 to
4,000,000 enjoy the -freedom of the
The Jews have subsisted in the
hope of a better day. The dawn of
that day is at hand, for rights of the
smaller peoples have been written in
to international ethics. But the Jews
of Europe ean not see nor attain this
and are ia rags. Their plight in Po
land is pitiable, as it is in other parts
of old Russia; neither do those resid
ing in old Austria-Hungary enjoy
Having given generously to varions
war funds and having fought well ita
the battle lines, the Jews of America
now ask their Gentile fellow citizens
to come to their assistance. They caa
not alone rescue their brothers in Eu
rope. Their appeal to the populace aa
a whole is a worthy appeal. The world
owes mach to the Jews of old and te
the Jew af to-day.

April 7, 8 and 9 as Jewish war relief

E. N. Smith Writes His Mother'
February 19, 1919.
; My dear Mother:
I will write you all a few lines to
let you know I am getting on fine
and hope this will find you all well
and enjoying life.
I have written you be?ore, but my
mail has been misplaced." I have not
?heard from home but one time since
I have been in France. What is the
matter? I would like to hear from
you all. I looks like everyone has for
gotten me. L hope they haven't. It
seems like I will never get to come
home but hope to between this and
July, but I clo not know.
When you get this letter, please
wi te to me.
We have a great deal of rain over
here every day, sometimes for a
[month. I am having a very good time
now. Am on guard. Do not know how
long it will last. I would like to stay
here in France all the time but would
like to come home now that the war
is over. I have some good boys to be
with. They seem like my brothers, I
have been with them so long. I go on
guard at 12 o'clock and off at four,
and again at 12 that night and have
nothing else to do but eat and sleep.
That is pretty good, fer I love to
sleep you know.
How is the influenza? No so bad,
I hope. It liked to have killed me ?but
I am all right now.

Why Colds are Dangerous.
You are often told to "beware of
a cold," but why? We will tell you:
Every cold weakens the lungs, lowers
the vitality and paves the way for the
more serious diseases. People who
contract pneumonia, first take cold.
The longer a cold hangs on, the great
er the danger, especially from the
germ diseases, as a cold prepares the
system for the reception and 'devel
opment of the germs of consumption,
diphtheria, scarlet fever and whoop
ing cough. The quicker you get rid
of your cold, the less the danger of
contracting one of these diseases.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has a
great reputation as a cure for colds
and can be depended upon. It is
pleasant to take.
