Senator Smith T
Columbia, July 14.-The peoplo of
South Carolina who have been fol
lowing the work of the San -Francisco
Convention will be interested in'the
important part whch Senaftor .10 ..D.
Smith played in the deliberations.
The ?work of Senator 'Eknith is best
described in tihe 'following article
from the 'Florence Daily Tlimes:
Friend,, of Senator 1111ison d). Smith
in Florence county are beginning to
interest themselves in his behialf as
a candidate for le-election to tho
'United States Senate, not that they
are fearful of the Senator's failing to
carry the comnty by a large majority,
as usual, but -because of the fact
that they are anxious to reconize
the Senator's great work Ih the Sen
ate by giving hini a nutch larger
majority than ever before.
Senator Sumith has be -n at San
FranleI Soo aille d t het( 11 ]( Nat'r!Onll
Denocratic conlventionl. lie will re
turn to his home at laync hburg to
mliorrow ant1d is expected in Florence
fo a conferie with his friends later
inl tlie WCek. SeIator Sm111ith will he
late entering the campaign, his op-1
polnents having already covered a
large part of the State.
In Itis letter to the peopile of' the
State which was reard at tle opening
lleetitng ot' the amttpa!gn he trCeouniit
('d his achievemets in tle Senate and
stated that he felt It his duty to at
tend the convention ati( as a member
of the piltform committee. do yhat
lie could for Iiis state atnd te South.
It happened that Ie ta 'comtplir.hed
much, Ithe port faellities pa nk in the
platforit, for which he is responisible
being of deejp sigiificance to this sec
tlioi. This, however. was not I te
only item in which his influeice was
felt. Seiator Smith happily has thlie
knack of get ting things donle atid his
activities at tile convention bore fruit
just as they have (one in the Senate.
The followiing rather remarkable
tribute to Senator Smith Is taken
from the Raleigh News and Observer,
the 'paper owned by Josephus laiels
Secretary of the Navy and will be of
interest as poinilng out. the estetii in
which Senator Smith is hel( inl tile

-Spartanburg, July 18.-Pellagra has

w1icre the disease formerly raged in

lounced tony by Surgeon Joseph
loldberger of the United States pub
lc health service. The laboratory and

will be distributed among the other
lkospitals of the public health service,
mnd so far as the local force of pel
lagra investigators is coneerned, the
research Work will come to ai end.
Te biggest single factor in the
itainping out of this disease has been

theory that pellagra was caused by
the buffalo gnat, an(d his argit 111011
galined much credence ainlong local

Iheory, as the disease was found to
exist In sections where the buffalo

Dr. Goldberger declared that the af.
ter effects of pellagra were much
worse than the after effects of S;)an
Isli Inffuenza. After all active symp
tois of pellagra have disappeared, the
patient has invariably experienced fre
quent and prolonged periods of las
situde and general debility, and in
many cases it has reIuired several
years to build ip the patient to his
former state of effielency.
In the treatment of pellagra, Dr.
Goldberger stated that mili has been
found to be a factor of inestimable
im portance. A slogan particularly at:
pIlicable in the* local campaign against
pellagra was "Own a cow."
