K SHOALS TO BE DEVELOPED.
uthern Power Company to Resume
?" *- i-i.?
rK flailS?MIIII ill uir
Chester, Jan. 6.?Much interest was
fcnanifested in business circles here
today when it was learned that the
Southern Power company had decided
to go ahead with the development
at Lookout shoals and r.ot to develop
the 'Fishing creek site in Chester
county. For a great many months
the company was held up in its proposed
development there by the high
p price demanded for one or two tracts
L? that were necessary to its purposes,
but recently the company and the
landowners ihave come to terms and
the company now holds the deeds to
I Ball the land it wants. This would inBtecate
that the development of the
water power at that place will now
W proceed. The Lookout shoals will be
second to the dam at Ninety-Xine islands
in point of storage capacity and
larger than the dam at Great Falls.
The dam will have a height of 80 feet
and sufficient land has been bought
to protect the company from backwater
troubles and law suits.
This will make the fifth dam in
H the system operated by the Southern
m Power company. The first was tne
[ initial venture of a native of Chester,

L city as a surgeon, Dr. W. Gill Wylie,
r in the Catawba gorge near Rock Hill
and which is now in the pigmy class
of the list. At the time the Rock
Hill plant was erected it was a question
with the engineers whether the
^ electric current could be sent profit;
ably as far as Charlotte, 18 miles, on
J account of tl:e probable loss by leakage.
That was in the early da}*.s of
electrical power development, when
the entire ousmess wai> pivmc;uauv.
A man touching his fingers, it is said,
K' to the end of a wire 100 miles long,
'1 will be likely to find the current
' there about as strong as it is at the
generator in the power house.
SALES NEARLY $3,000,000.
Dispensary Auditor Mitchum Makes
Estimate on 1918 Business.
j Columbia, January 6.?Close on
to three million dollars' worth of
whiskey, beer and wines were sold by
the county dispensaries in South
Carolina during the year 1913, according
to an estimate prepared today
by State Dispensary Auditor
Harvey W. Mitchum.
^ Mr. Mitchum estimates that the dis^^^pensaries
disposed of $2,863,731.65
^^H|wrth of alcoholic beverages during
H& year. The amount sold was
27. for the year 1912.
the estimate is taken as approximately
correct last year's sales outdistanced
those of 1912 by $201,
^ The estimate by Auditor Mitchum
was unofficial. It is impossible to get
the exact figures yet, owing to the fact
that reports from all the counties
PJ having dispensaries are not in for tie
^ month of December.
? There are twelve counties that are
now operating under the dispensary
system, with Orangeburg, in addition,
just having commenced with the New
Year, Lexington's dispensary is tied
up in the Courts.

SICK KIDNEYS ACT FINE AND
BACKACHE SDIPLY VANISHES
The most effective and harmless
way to cure backache and regulate
out-of-order kidneys, or end bladder
trouble is to take several doses of
Bloodine Blood and Kidney Tablets.
You will distinctly feel that your
kidneys and urinary organs are being
cleanee, healed and vitalized, and
all the miserable symptoms such as
backache, headache, nervousness,
rheumatism and darting pains, inflamed
or swollen eyelids, irritabilty,
sleeplessness, or suppressed, painful
of frequent urination (especially at
a?* /1ieft*AGC lno xn'n or q f

ter taking the first few doses.
The moment you suspect any kidney
or urinary disorder, or rheumatism,
begin taking this harmless preparation
as directed, with the knowledge
that there is no other medicine,
at any price, made anywhere el?e in
the world which will effect so thorough
and prompt a cure as a fifty
cent box of Bloodine mooa ana Jtvianey
Tablets, which any druggist can
supply you with.
Don't be miserable or worried another
moment with a lame back or
clogged, inactive kidneys or bladder
misery. All this goes after you start
taking Bloodine Blood and Kidney
Tablets, and in a few days you fee1
and know that your Kidneys, liver and
urinary system are healthy, clean and
normal and all danger passed. Accept
only Bloodine Blood and Kidney

teresting interview by H. G. Hastings
of Atlanta, chairman of the agricultural
committee of the Atlanta Chamber
of Commerce and manager of the
Georgia State Com Show, which is
presented annually in the state capital
"We are facing," says Mr. Hastings,
"an era of agricultural production such
as the world has never before witnessed.
Every year since the first
corn club was organized, the movement
has seen more than remarkable
growth. One year's record has become
insignificant when that of the
next year doubled it; and by that, I|
mean that many more boys, have gono |
into the worK ana nave vastly increased
results not only by their own
efforts, but through inspiration to fa-'
thers, brothers and neighbors until t
millions of dollars have already been
added to corn production in the Soutn.
"And yet this is but a forecast of
what is to come. There are now being
organized as an outgrowth of the
corn club work, Three and Four-Crop
Clubs. The boys will plant oats and
cowpeas on their former corn acre,
thus diversifying their crops and renewing
the soil, while a new acre will
be taken for corn cultivation. In some
sections cotton has been added to the
list, on a third acre, and the rourCrop
Club boys have already gone to
"Another outgrowth of the corn club
is the Pig Club. Southern boys have
learned the truth of the story of the
farmpr whn sprt 'n a
more prosperous neighbor to buj a
shoat. The neighbor sold him the
shoat, but with it presented hiai a
t;ack of corn. 'You have got the
ihoat under your arm,' he told the
I irmer, 'but I want you to remem5>er
hat the hog is in the sack."
