The back yards in Edgefield were
so creditable that the inspectors
found it quite hard to decide what
names should be turned in for the
judges, Mrs. M. B. Tucker, Miss Mae

cide on the prize winners. Then when
the judges made their round they
found it more than hard to choose
the best from their list, which includ
ed Mesdames James Timmerman, Je
rome Timmerman, W. H. Harling, J.'
G. Alford, Wright Holston, Mouzon
Smith, W. T. Reel and W. C. Mad
den. Finally, they gave first prize,
which was three dollars, to Mrs.
James Timmerman and the second
prize, a porch box, to Mrs. Jerome
Timmerman. The Civic League
thanks every one who cooperated in
this clean up campaign and feels
gratified over the results.

Don't worry and "complain about a
bad back. Get rid of it! For weak
kidneys, lame and achy backs, your
neighbors recommend Doan's Kidney
Pills. Read this statement:
Ms. H. W. Hair, 405 Gully Row,
Edgefield, says: "My kidney trouble
came on gradually and I suffered tor
ture with my kidneys. My kidneys
were congested and my limbs and an
kles swelled and were so painful I
couldn't stand on my feet. My back
was weak 'and painful and there was
a steady, dull misery tover my kid
neys. Some days I was able to do a
little work but often had to give up
and rest. My sight was affected and
spots floated before my eyes. I had
headaches and was run down and my
nerves were unstrung. Doan's Kidney
Pills helped me a great deal. Two
boxes of Doan's gave me relief and it
has been a number of years since I
have had a spell with my kidneys."

The Jane Jackson sells at one-third to one-fifth of the cost of cor
bets of like quality-the first time such an offer has ever been made.
The explanation is simple. Heretofore the very finest and costliest
corsets have always been profusely decorated .with elaborate trim*
mings, real lace, gold plated hooks, etc, Jhese frivolities were an
excuse for their extravagant*prices. 1 ._ '
In the Jane Jackson all costly non-essentials are eliminated. But
in artistry, in design, in materials, in all genuine merit, a finer corset,
simply could not be made. So for the first time the very finest pos
sible is priced at a moderate figure. Jane Jackson corsets have all
the appropriate touches of daintiness that women love. Both
"front and back lace styles.
These superlative corsets present the finest achievement of their
makers' thirty-eight years experience. For evecy woman the Jane
Jackson interprets^style in terms of comfortable grace and healthful
Now every woman may be correctly but economically corseted. The
remarkable value of these corsets urges your immediate inspection.
