hickory forest, seven tenant houses with wells and stream. Clay and gray soil, and is now rented for 10,000

Order Wire Fence and Posts
' at Once.
County Agent A B. Carwile says
he is now in position to take orders
for wire fence and posts. The farm
ers of the county are urged to get in
touch with him at once. Whether you
buy through him or not it will pay
you to look over the prices he has
-collected, since he has them from
the large fence houses of the nation.
A few days ago he remarked that he
did not care where the farmer got
his fencing, but he wanted everyone
to be sure that he is getting the best
quality of wire at a reasonable
price. See' Mr. Carwile at once about
A Path to Inter-Racial Peace.
Austin, Tex.-The St. John's Mis
sionary Baptist Association, covering
eleven Texas counties, has issued a
statement warning their people
against "preachers of disorder and
race riot." They especially protest
against a certain -type of Negro news
papers published at the North, but
with wide circulation in the South.
These papers, the Association as
serts, "magnify the wrongs and min
imize the good" in inter-racial rela
tions. They who "brandish before
the eye incendiary articles at this
time are enemies rather than friends
of the race." The Association will ap
proach other colored organizations
on this basis and try to launch a na
tion-wide campaign against propa
gandists who would promote race
antagonisms and in favor of a better
understanding between the races.
Such movement must win the ap
proval of all thinking whites: but
it will effect little without white
backing and co-operation. If white
people and newspapers will in like
manner refuse to "magnify the
wrongs and minimize the good" in
Negro life, and will fr>wn down the
kind of talk which makes for mutual
distrust and bitterness, both sides
of the double ipioblem may be met.
Such a course will give the sane Ne
gro leader, the backing they ur
gently need, and will insure the ful
fillment of . the Associations, proph
ecy .that the races in the South "if
left to themselves, will, in time, ad
just all differences to the good cf all
WHAT EDGEFIELD WANTS
TO KNOW __
The Answer Is Found in the
Statement of an Edgefield
From week to week, from year to
year, there have been appearing in
these columns statements made by
neighbors, which we have all read
with great interest, and many of us
with great profit. But what we want
to know is, do they stand the great
est test of all-the test of time?
There is conclusive evidence on this
point from an Edgefield man:
IW. D. Dorn, Cedar Row, says: "I
can endorse Doan's Kidney Pills for
one box did me a great deal of good
when I was bothered with my kid
neys and bladder. The trouble has
never returned so I can confirm all I
have previously said* in favor of
(Statement given April 12, 1911)
On February 7, 1918, Mr. Dorn
said: "I have every reason to con
tinue recommending Doan's Kidney
Pills. They cured me of a bad case of
kidney trouble some years ago." .
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills-the same
that Mr. Dorn had. Foster-Milburn

Sore Head Among Chickens.
During the past few weeks an epi
demic of sore head has broken out
among the Edgefield poultry plants.
Clemson College says that sore head
is usually caused by spores of a
common mold, (aspergillus fumiga
tus) that develops on old little, corn,
food , etc. For treatment, give water
turned pink by potassium permanga
nate tablets. Once a week during the
epidemic, physic the fowls with one
half cupful of epsom salts. Spray
the houses well with Bordeaux mix
ture or lime-sulphur solution. Clean
up the litter and anything that may
produce mold. Dip the head of the
diseased fowls in solution made by
adding one tea spoonful of creolin
to one pint of water twice daily. Get
bulletin No. 16, "Poultry Culture in
South Carolina" from your county
or home demonstration agent. This
will tell more fully how to treat this
and other poultry diseases.
Campaign for Fencing and
Livestock in Edgefield County.
During the ir.onth of October,
County Agricultural Agent A. B.
Carwile will conduct a county-wide
campaign for more fencing and bet
ter livestock throughout the county.
This campaign will be completed by
the first of November in order that
the farmers may get at putting up
this material before dead winter sets
in. Below are given a few sugges
tions why this campaign will be put
before the farmers:
1. To fight the boll weevil our
county must raise more livestock,
hence the reason for bringing in
good stock and for building more
pastures and grazing plots.
2. Co-operative buying in car load
lots will give a better quality of wire
at a lower price and with more rea
sonable promptness than otherwise.
3. A spirit of community pride
will be developed in the communities
that stock with pure breds and build
the best pastures.
4. Development of the "do things
together" spirit will be brought?
about by working co-operatively in
the communities. Only such a spirit
will lead to prosperity and a good
This campaign has been given a
great deal of publicity and the news
papers are still aiding to their best
ability to aid the county agent to
put this propersition before the farm
ers. They now know that the agricul
tural man is at work and are request
ed to see him at the first opportunity
in order to get these orders placed
before the fall rush.
