The Only Honest Way.
The only honorable and honest
way to stop a newspaper is to step
into the office and pay up all ar

name off the list. To fire your paper
back at the publisher marked * re

a year, and never go near the office
is not only disreputable, but super

A Horrible Hold-Up.
About ten yearsj ago my brother,
was "held up" in his work, health'

to be hopeless consumption, writes

and treatment from several doc^rs,
but found no help till hp. used Dr.
King's New Discovery and was
wholly.cured by six bottles. He is a
well man to-day. It's quick to re
lieve and the surest cure for weak
or sore lungs, hemorrhages, coughs
and colds, bronchitis, la grippe,
asthma and all bronchial affections.

To have the pains and aohes of a

free from annoying, dangerous
urinary disorders is enough to
make any kidney sufferer grateful.
To tell how this great change can
be brought about will prove com

Xjnion St., Aiken S. C., says: "I
have used Doan's Kidney Pills and
can say-that I have been greatly
benefited. I suffered a great deal for
several years from kidney complaint.
At times there was a dull aching in
the kidney regions and I also suffer

Cold Spring Fanners Will Com"
pete For The Advertiser's
Prizes to Corn Growers.
Our farmers are busy clearing
ground; cutting briars, filling ditch
es and terraces, cutting wood to
burn during the year, plowing, haul
ing fertilizers and doing other
things which industrious, wide
awake farmers- do. Who says the
Red Hill" farmers will not win both
of the prizes offered by The Adver
tiser, for the greatest number of
bushels of corn grown on one acre,
during the year 1909? . Put us
down for the first prize anyway.
Nothing like trying.
The thin gray lines" are fast
fading away, as one by one those
who faithfully served our South
land, in its darkest hours, answers
to that great call which comes to
soldier and citizen' alike. On last
Saturday the soul of Mr. Whit
Reynolds took its flight, to that
camping ground where he will hear
no more bugle calls until that great
day of j judgment when Gabriel
blows his trumpet. His body was
laid to rest in the Gilgal cemetery
Sunday. He leaves children and
friends to mourn his loss, and to
these we express our sympathies.
Wejead with interest the arti
cles on prohibition published* by
The Advertiser last week, and hope
the editor will reap a rich reward
for his efforts to promote this great
cause. We have seen the great bene
fit of a prohibition law in Edgefield
county and the voters of our com
munity showed their appreciation
of it by signing the petitions to the
Senate and House, sent by the W.

success is for the fanners to -prepare
their exhibits. The directors met
Saturday and completed, the organi

treasurer. The following were
elected members of the executive j
committee: N. G. Evans, W. E.I

and S. B. Nicholson.
The association is not only now
thoroughly organized and- exceed
ingly well- officered but something
over $1,200 have been .subscribed
to the capital stock, which, with
the subscriptions that will be made
later, assures the holding of a county
fair next October or November, the
exact date to be determined later.
Housewives, poultry raisers, stock
raisers - and rfarmers generally
throughout the county should begin
to arrange for making exhibits. If
creditable exhibits are to be made,
the planning and preparation must
j-. Unless the people at large take
an active interest and vie with each
other in the exhibits,. the fair will
be a failure. It will fail to accom
plish that for which its promoters
are chiefly striving: an increase in
stock raising and a diversification
of crops by the farmers of this
coun tv. i
