Colored Soldiers Deport Them
v selves Well.
According: to the following dis
patch from Columbia to the Green
ville News the negro soldiers at
Camp Jackson are making a good
record for themselves:
"One of the best indications thatj
Columbia will not have any serious
trouble with the negro soldiers at
Camp Jackson, says a dispatch of
the Greenville News, is that, al
though there have been upwards of
3,000 negroes at the camp for the
past several weeks, not a single one
has been arrested by the military
police. One negro soldier was ar
rested by the civilian police on a
charge of being drunk, and this is
the only arrest of a negro soldier
here to date.
Col. Edwin Bell, commander of
the military police, said Tuesday
morning that the conduct of the
negro soldiers have been most ex
emplary. "The donning of the uni
form of the army has not given them
the 'big: head" as some persons
expected it would," said Col. Bell.
'On the contrary I believe it has
instilled u desire in them to make
themselves worthy of the uniform
they wear and of the responsibility
it has placed upon them."
Colored Fair Association.
The colored fair which took place
at the fair grounds on Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
of last week was a decided success.
While the crowds were not so large
on any one day as those of last year,!
the average attendance on the four
days measured up well to the expect
ations cf the promoters of the enter
There was a good display of stock
and horses, some driving around
the arena most of this time.
There were several carnival feat
ures, which added to the interest of
the fair, and yet there were no
objectionable things attending them
as is the case so often with carnivals.
The exhibits were splendid.
The farra products, some of which
were arranged from individual,
farms were displayed in a very
creditable and artistic mannen
The canned fruits and vegetables
were varied and many. One notic
able jar was tomatoes placed whole
in the can and arranged very at
tractively. Another pretty arrange
ment was with Elberta peaches.
The fancy work booth was un
usually good, showing that many of
the persons who did the work, were
experts. Many quilts with splendid
applique and intricate patterns were
Altogether the management seem
ed to think that the fair of 1917 was
the best yet.
Meeting of the Edgefield Chap

Mrs. Jefferson Wright was hostess
at a very interesting meeting of the
li. D. C. Chapter last Tuesday af
Mrs. E. P. Jones' the president,
was in the chair, and presided with
her usual dignity. The session
opened with the Lord's prayer by
the Chapter. In the absence of the

requested to read the minutes and
take dawn the proceedings of the
The first business on the program
was a report from the committee on
the Constitution and by-laws. Mrs.

mittee read the State Constitution
and by-laws and discussed the vari

board. The matter of instructing
our delegates as to the amounts of
pledges to be given next year was
now taken up, after which the
meeting was turned over to the
historian, Mrs. Wright, who had
prepared a most interesting pro
gram on Jefferson Davis. A paper
was read by little Miss Elizabeth
Lott on the life of Davis, which she
had prepared to read before the
Bald-Eagle-Chapter. Mrs. Marsh

Rev. John Lake Writes Letter to
Editor of The Advertiser.
Thank yon for the June 12th and
June 27th Advertisers, and the four
July numbers, all six received yes
terday, and eagerly devoured, like
six home letters. I got a letter from
cousin Eliza a few days ago, and I
wrote her we had been so long with
out home mail that we were afraid
the submarines had sunk a lot of it.
A day or two later I got a good
letter from Ed, and now othei mail
has come from friends and loved
ones, and it certainly gives joy to
these Wayfarers. When the Edge
field boys whose names I see in the
paper, get to France they will know
how it feels to be so far from home
and loved ones; and how glad they
will be to get the letters, the pa
pers, any shape of news, from
the home State and county and
town! My heart goes out to them,
and I wish I could write a personal
letter to each and every soldier boy
and sailor boy as he goes-some of
them my own kinsmen, some my
old neighbors, and the sons of my
old neighbors. Whether they ever
get back to dear old Edgefield or
not-God grant that they may,
though,-may they go with their
confidence in God. who is able to
keep them from falling, and to give
them a place in the City that has
been prepared for those who love
him and trust in his Son.
In a way I know what it is to be
on the firing line. China, of late
years, like Mexico, has been in a
chronic state of revolution, and an
other revolution ison now, whiie |
the Parliament (Congress) illegally
dissolved in Peking, is reassembling
here in our city of Canton, and in
our end of the city at that. But
whatever comes, the last abortive
i effort to put the emperor back on
the throne shows that the Chinese
are determined to have a republic.
To get it, the people of this part of
the country have gone throughsome
fiery trials, and more than once I
have been in the line of fire. But
our God is good, and we are safe
till our time comes-may this
thought comfort many an Edgefield
boy's father ard mother during the
trying days ahead of us.
How we shall watch the papers
for oews from the front, especially
for news of our own Edgefield boys!
And now we shall follow with our
prayers, from this battle front,
those who go to the other battle
fronts! In a sense, all battles for
the right are one-and will be won!
Our best love to you and your
dear wife and boys and girls and to
the love ones, on both sides of the
house, and to all the old friends in
Edgefield county. I am writing at
once to let you know the papers
have at last reached us.

Norris N. Smith, of Rome,
Ga., Tells of Bad Stomach
Condition and What
Vitona Did For Him
Home folks-neighbors are most
frequently the people who know and
?who are willing to tell the world
about the benefits derived from a
medicine originated in their midst.
When they speak in the highest
praise of the tremendous help a
medicine is to them, declaring they
would not be without it in their
home under any circumstances, and
do this without any pecuniary re
ward, you can always place absolute
dependence upon such statements.
Here, for instance, is a statement
from Norris N. Smith. He is a
well known Real Estate man of
Rome, Georgia, from right near
which city the mineril is found from
which Vitona is made. Here is
what Mr. Smith says:
"For sometime I had suffered
from a general run-down condition.
I had a bad stomach trouble of some
kind, and could eat and retain but
little solid food. Frequently after
a meal, even though I would eat
v?ry lightly, I would be sick on the
stomach, and in a short time would
lose what I had eaten. I began us
ing Vitona because I had heard of
its good effects, and I was told that
it would give me relief. Within one
week's time, after taking as directed,
I began to show a steady improve
ment, and in a short time was ab
solutely cured. I feel entirely well
now, and contribute my condition to
Vitona. I would not be without it
in my house under any circum
