$25,000,000 FOR WHAT?
What are we. going to get out of that $25,000,000 this government is to
pay the government of Colombia? By consenting to this payment we tacit
ly admit that this government was in a measure instrumental in the secession
of Panama. It is within this seceded territory that General Goethals per
formed the greatest engineering feat of history by constructing the Panama
canal, which we own.
Central and South American republics are never quite at ease regarding
the United States. There is always a lurking suspicion that we entertain ul
terior designs toward them, with the possibility of extending the folds of the
American flag to cover the entire continent at some future (lay. But we have
no such intentions. We have troubles enough of our own without assuming
those of an alien race whose habits, customs and inclinations are not in har
mony with our own. Is this government so great that it is willing to admit
a mistake of the past and make restitution to the extent of $25,000,000? Or
is it a cold blooded effort to purchase that brotherly love that we all know
does iot exist? Or what is it ? $25,000,000 is a lot of money. It means
much to Colombia. But where do we come in ? Do we simply cough ill
and f'rget, or is there a hidden string to the deal ?
SEVEN HUNDRED YEARS AND STILL FIGHTING
Ireland has been fighting intermittently for something like seven hund
red years for freedom. It has been a long fight, in the face of every pos
sible discouragement and obstruction.
The Irish, like our own people of the original thirteen colonies, want the
-right to govern themselves. Some day they will have it. Ireland in a con
stant. state of turmoil, and with a huge army maintained to keep it in sub
jection, (an be of but little value to England. But a free Ireland, with re
ciprocal trade relations, might be a profitable neighbor. Certainly a people
who have been. "kicking up the dust" for seven hundred years will hardly re
main quiescent as lkng as the same blood flows in their veins. England
miighi t let g'o her hot poker with distinct advantage to herself.
THAT SLACKER LIST
Including the names of valiant ex-service men among the list of slackers
leads unbiased people to suspect that the persons who kept the records should
head that list. The lists sent out by the war department have been found to
be so unreliable the press of the~eountry hesitates to publish them until the
record of each man has been carefully traced. If the records of the waar de
partment an dthe draft boards have been so loosely kept as to be largely un
reliable, then the editorial fraternity is quite justified in refusing to publish
the names of alleged draft evadors until information can be supplied from a
source that is depenldable.
It is better to let a hundred guilty men escape than to publicly humiliate
one innocent veteran.
Governments are like people. If they persist in carrying chips on their
shoulders some one is sure to knock them off.

For Many a Manning Household
To have the pains and aches of. a
bad back removed-to be entirely free
from annoying, dangerous urinary dis
orders, is enough to make any kidney
sufferer grateful. The following ad
vice of one who has suffered will
prove helpful to hundreds of Manning
Mrs. C. M.;Taylor, S. Boundry St
Manning, says: "About a year ago I
was troubled with kidney complaint.
I had terrible backaches and- head
aches bothered me. Ne vous spells
ulset me and my nerves were just a
wreck. I felt tired and languid and
I suffered vith dizzy spells. Finally,
I heard about Doan's Kidney Pills
and bought some at Arant's Drug
Store. I can certainly say Doan's
did me a wonderful lot of good and
quickly relieved me."
Price 60e, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy-get
Doan's Kidney* Pills--the same that
Mrs. Taylor had. Foster-Milburn Co.,

Nirs. M. E. Tennent left Thursday of

The funeral of Capt. Julius A. Mood
took place in the Summerton ceme
tary last Thursday afternoon, May
19th. Almost three years have pass
ed since he gave his all for the pre
servation of -his country. It was in
the Allied offensive of July 1918,
southwest of Soissons, that he fell.
Since that time he has remained in
France in the little cemetery near a
cross roads to the south of Misy-au
Capt. ilood entered the service of
his coutry (luring the Mexican
trouble of 1916. He entered as a pri
vate antd served in this capacity until
he was commissioned in the regular
army. ITis first appointment was with
the 1st Division and he served through
the' war with this organization. At
(ie time of his death he was in com
mand of Co. D, 26th Infantry, 1st Di
visiont as Captain.
It was with a sorrowful heart that
Ohe community met the remains of
it's honored dlead. The Julius A.
ilioil Post of the American Legion
directed the funeral service. The tri
bute paid in numbers present and
flowers has never been seen in our
little town before. Pall bearers were
appointed from associates of his early
life. They were: Ernest Walker, Tom
togan, llenry Felder, Pred Barnes,
Sam Martin, Jack .)ames, Huron God
win and Claude Walker; all members
of the American Legion. 'Tihe Mann
iig and Bishepvnille Posts of the
American Legion were represented.
The good people of Summerton were
specially favored in having Dr. H. N.
Snyder, president of Wofford College,
to address them at the Summerton
Metiodist church in the interest of
the Chri1istian Education campaign
ntow on in the Methodist Episcopal
church South. Dr. Snyder, was as is
hlis isual custom, full of zeal and
eanistnless in presenting the noble
I'Ur'ps; of this movemeit and, am
