We have been largely instrumental in inducing the people of
Sumter, Clarendon and Lee Counties to grow their own food.
We put our money into a flour mill to encourage the planting
of wheat. We have added a rice mill to our plant to help the
situation. We feel that the people appreciate our efforts in this
We now beg to announce that we have arranged to install with
the least possible delay an additional flour mill of 100 barrels
capacity to take care of our trade.
We are turning out the finest flour that can be produced. Our
"FLAVO" flour, "nature-flavored has no superior.'
Bring us your wheat, rice and corn, either to grind or to sell.
We will pay the highest cash market price at all times for grain,
and guarantee you satisfaction in every way.

board could not tell what the French
were shouting, but they understood
from the tone of the babel that Amer

Soldiers aboard the Lepape and other
vessels in the expeditionary fleet
threw loose coin to the French chit-.

the French soldiers. The good-natured

Citadel Man in Command.
Major (then captain) Edward Croft,
a Citadel graduate in the class of
1896, a native of Aiken, was in com
mand of the soldiers on board the
Lenape. He handed the following let
ter to Mr. Grant, expressing appre
ciation for the splendid services of
this efficient Clyde officer:
"Office of Commanding Office'r of
Troops, U. S. A., C. T. Lenape,
June 27, 1917.
"Mr. W. H. Grant, Chief Steward,
U. S. A. C. T. Lenape:
"Dear Sir: Before leaving the ship
I desire to extend to you my congrat
ulations for the efficient manner in
which you have conducted your de
partment and my thanks for the ex
cellent food you have furnished the
troops and passengers during the
voyage fram New York to France.
I hope that it may be my pleasure to
travel with you again soon. Very
"Cartain, Twenty-sixth Infantry,
Major Croft ran true to South Caro
lina form during the voyage and in
sisted on getting his hominy regular
ly. When the Clyde line oflicers on
board learned of this, they realized
that they had as troop commander a
genuine Southerner and that they also
had an officer of the best type. Major
Croft on several occasoins embraced
the opportunity to express his appre
ciation of the way in which the steam
ship was handled.
Mal de Mer Attacks Soldiers.
Except for ont day, the voyage to
France was pleasant. That clay was
rough and as the Lenape rolled, sol
diers were afflicted with mal de mer
and showed no hesitation. Several
of those on duty in the crow's next
got the full benefit of the ship's roll
ing and were none the happier for
the experience. They did not find the
footing any too comfortable in get
ting from the shrouds up the jacob's
ladder into the crow's nest.
Friends of Mr. Grant will be pleas
ed to know that his son, Harry A.
Grant, holds the rank of sergeant ma
jor in the American aviation corps.
At present he is on duty at the aero
school at San Antonio, Texas. lie was
ordleredl some time ago from Honolulu
to G;overnor's Island, New York, and
thence to Fort Sam Hlouston. Sergt.
Major Grant has achiev'ed a splendid
recordl in the service, so much so that
comnmissioned officers have taken the
oppIortunity to send Mr. Grant letters
in whic they congratulate the young
man on his accomplishmients. In view
of his ability, it appear:; likely that.
he will soon be promotedI to a lieu
tenancy in the aviation corps.
Mr. Gri~ant has been transferred,
since the return of the Lenape from a
lFrench seaport, to the Apache, of
which John N. Staples is the capitain.
For fifteen years Mr. Girant and Capt.
Edwin Kemble were together on the
Ariapahoe, the Mohawk and the Le
nape, in order. Capt. Kemable is at.
present recovering fror,, a minor acci
dent. The port. captain of the Clyde
line was giveun the commission as cal..
