As Chairman of Edgefield Co
I wish to appeal to the people o
County and say: "Do as you
done in the past and the pat:

you trail it in the dust of hur

historical banners of the past; ca

The officers said to our boys in
charging the Hindenburg line: "Hold
them boys!" The response came in
thundering tones-"We will hold
them!" The officers said: "They must
not pass!" The boys shouted-"They
shall not pass!" Victory followed!
Most earnestly do I proclaim and
appeal unto the sons and daughters
of old Edgefield County: Rally to the
support of the future historical
reputation of your County; sustain
the Victory Liberty Loan appeal of
your Government; shout forth the e
ternal slogaa: "We must, we will sus
tain the Victory Liberty Loan; it
shall not fail" to the blood-crying
voices of our boys from the battle
fields of France, crying, "Are you
still with us?" Let your answer be
"Our sons of the dust, we are with
you, even unto the end!"
Next, the REWARD! What a glo
rious inheritance for our posterity!
Yours in Patriotism and Victory,

There can be no doubt
as to the merit of Cardui,
the woman's tonic, in
the treatment of many
troubles peculiar to
women. The thousands
of women who have been
helped by Cardui in the
past 40 years, is conclu
sive proof that it is a
good medicine for women
who suffer, lt should
help you, too.
