With the ex-Kaiser, the path of

The political campaign has opened
in Greenwood by the announcement
of a candidate for auditor.

The press and pulpit are crying

We wonder how many people ever
expected to see cotton sell for $1 per
pound? It is true that it is long sta
ple cotton which brings that price,
but it is cotton.

Some Greenwood people are no
longer satisfied with the kind of
bornes "Paw" and "Maw" lived in
and are building residences that cost
thirty thousand and upwards. Well,
that's a pardonable ambition.

One of the old poets admonished
his readers to "hitch their wagons to
a star." The grocery wagons are
about the only kind now that are
hitched to the stars and the "long
green" can scarcely reach them.

. Speaking of "figure heads," what
ever they are, King George of Eng
land stands at the head of the list.
About all one ever hears of him do

riage, possibly royal limousine now.

Not being satisfied with Ger
many's failure to experience real war
on her own soil, Mars put it into the
hearts of the German people to wage
war among themselves.' Real peace in
Germany is about as far off as Tip
perary used to be.

Have a thought for the dumb
brutes. The lateness of farm work
will doubtless cause many farmers to
rush their stock too much. Having
been idle in the stables practically
since fall, draft stock can not at first
stand heavy work as well as they can
later. Shield them all you can.

Somehow President Wilson is look
efl upon in many quarters as being
hard-headed, and if he fails to heed
the advice of his friends to keep out
of the presidential race this summer,
he will prove himself to be very, very

"Reduce Cotton Acreage.
The farmer who stoutly refuses to
believe the boll weevil to be a real,
live, hurtful enemy and goes on
straitway preparing for the usual, or
perchance increased, cotton acreage,
will sooner or later find himself again
in the unfortunate plight of 1914. If
so, he has no one to blame but him
self. He is going headlong into trou
ble fully informed of the danger. The
beavy blow of 1914 came as a bolt
pi thunder from a cloudless sky. No
?varning was given farmers to pre
pare for the worst. They planted
their usual acreage in cotton in the
.spring of 1914, entertaining the hope
that the price in the fall would be
around 12 cents. After Germany
stabbed the world in the back, the
blow being felt around the world,
and nowhere with greater force and
.with more direful consequences than
right here in the cotton belt of the
South, the price dropped to five cents
.with no market even at so low a
price. Guard against a repetition of
the 1914 disaster. Reduce the cotton
acreage and correspondingly increase
the acreage of food crops. ,
Be Careful With Fire.
To urge the people in Edgefield to
be careful with fire after the recent
conflagration is about like urging a
man to lock the stable door after his
horse has been stolen. Well, maybe
so, but The Advertiser can not re
frain from reminding them that
there if greater danger from fire at
this season than at any* other. The
high winds which generally prevail
at this season not infrequently fan
an erstwhile dying ember or spark
into a flame. Then too, there is more
dry or combustible matter lying
around at this season than any other.
Leaves are frequently allowed to ac
cumulate on roofs of houses and are
ignited by sparks.
Then there is the seemingly harm
less family ash-box which is a very
prolific source of fire. Ashes are tak
en from the stove or fire-place in
wooden or pasteboard boxes and then
placed carelessly about the premises,
instead of being carried out and emp
tied upon the ground. Taking it all
in all, this is the season of most fre
quent fires. Be careful with fire
about your home. It is too late after
your property is in ashes.
