The Press Association meets in

A Tennesseean died Tuesday at the

The highest evidence that official

"The collector of internal revenue

The early history of the baby

The farmer who sells his cotton

The Press and Banner is doing
good work in its efforts to stay the

W?V'Get Ever-?* With South.
It ?oerns that the Republican ma
jori., in congress will retaliate for
the South's having been in the saddle
for the past several years. One evi
dence is found in the steps taken
looking to the prevention of the pur
chase of Southern Camps, Camp
Jackson being among them The Re
publicans in congress . not relish
having such large sums of govern
ment money paid out in the South,
forgetting that practically all of the
enormous pensions paid to Union sur
vivors of the Civil War have been
paid out in the North.
Times Have Changed.
There was a time when people,
most people, scouted the idea having
our courts impose a jail sentence,
withouc option of fine, on violators
of the prohibition law. But gradually
public sentiment has changed to tr
point of not only sanctioning su?. <
sentences but demanding that they
be imposed for flagrant violations.
The sessions court of the new
'county of Allendale made a good rec
ord by imposing ? sentence in the
first case tried, that cf violating the
prohibition law, of two months on
the chaingang without option of fine.
I More Warehouses Sh?uld Be Built.
I Some people learned years ago
I that generally a heavy loss is sus
jtained by keeping cotton all winter
and spring out in the weather but
?others did not learn the expensive
lesson until the past season. Probably
'never before has there been such a
widespread damage to cotton from
exposure to weather as there was to
the crop of 191S. This is due to two
causes. First, there was a larger
?quantity of cotton held than usual
and, second, to the excessive rain.
Many who sustained loss from
'damaged cotton will soon begin to
provide storage rooms on their farms
or they will, if they hold cotton j
j again, place it in warehouses in |
. towns and cities.
Some idea of the heavy loss sus- i
j taine i can be gained from the foi-1
[lowing sent out by the State Ware-,
"A farmer recently sold 16 bales
i of cotton which were left in the
weather after ginning. The rotten
.weather damaged cotton in this lot
amounted to 2,300 pounds, or over
?four bales. The loss in money a
mounted to $690 at 30 cents a
pound. This farmer could have ware
housed his 16 bales in almost any
warehouse in the State system, had
there been room for it, for six years
for $690 and at the same time it
'would have been insured against fire.
"A second farmer disposed of 60
j bales of cotton a week or so ago on
iwhich the "country damage" amount
Led to 7,500 pounds, a loss at 30 cents ;
'a pound of $2,250. He might have put
i his GO bales in a State warehouse,
thus portecting it from the 'eather
and against fire, kept it there for six
'months it lay rotting in his yard and
?save at least $1,818 of the $2,250 he !

How Bad Backs Have Been
Made Strong-Kidney Ills
Ail over Edgefield you hear it.
Doan's Kidney Pills are keeping up
the good work. Edgefield people are
telling about it-telling of bad backs
made sound again. You can believe
the testimony of your own townspeo
ple. They tell it for the benefit of
you who are suffering. If your back
aches, if you feel lame, sore and mis
erable, if the kidneys act too fre
quently, or passages are painful,
$canty and off color, use Doan's Kid
ney Pills, the remedy that has helped
so many of your friends and neigh
bors. Follow this Edgefield citizen's
advice and give Doan's a chance to do
the same for you.
J. G. McNeill, Battle St., says:
"Six years ago when I was living in
Greenville, I was afflicted with a
lameness in the small of my back,
which was undoubtedly caused by my
kidneys. My kidneys didn't act right,
being sluggish. I got a box of Doan's
Kidneg Pills and used them and they
removed the trouble."
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply .ask for a kidney remedy-get
Doan's Kidney Pills-the same that
Mr. McNeill had. Foster-Milburn Co.,
