Balzer, Melony & Comar get Klim
Sales for the Entire State
Balzer, Molony & CGmar of 143
Calhoun Street, Charleston, are be
ing congratulated by their many
friends on having been appointed tho
General Distributors for Klim milk
for the State of South Carolina. Their
years of experience as Klim sales
men moko them invaluable men in
this new capacity.
Chance to Get a Klim Agency
Talking to a reporter the other day,
Mr. Balzer said that bis primary in
terest right now was to find good livo
men and women throughout the state
who would bo interested in selling
Klim. Considerable headway is being
made but he pointed out that thero
were thousands of towns and villages
in tho state where Klim is known to
the housewives, and he wants an agent
in each town. It certainly looks iiko
a good chance for men wno are look
ing for something good to work on,
or women who would like spare timo
work. From what Mr. Balzer says,
tho work is ensy and interesting, and
pays well. Ho wants to hoar from
any man or woman who is interested.
How to Get Klim Now
Until the state organization of dis
tributors is solidly under way, Mr.
Balzer wants it known that he ls
ready to ship Klim by parcel post to
the numerous South Carolinans who
are using it now. The prices which
will prevail for these parcel post ship
ments are as follows:
Klim whole milk - 1 lb., $ .70
" - 2" j lbs ,1.15
*.- 6 ' lbs., :? 80
Until there m an agent in your
town, send Balzer, Molony & Comar
your order, together with ? money
order to their address given in tho
first part of tlii3 article.
Now Organization Means Much
"With every little town ip South
Carolina having a Klim distributor,"
Mr. Balzer went on to say, "much
will have been accomplished towards
giving tho different communities a
steady supply of good country fresh
"According to figures recontlycom
?riled, many of tho farms in tue stato
lave no cows. That means that good,
fresh milk like Klim is needed. Be
causo of its uniformly high standard
of purity and quality somo of our
greatest baby specialists are recom
mending it for infant feeding. You
can be sure that the value of such. a
product will be quickly recognized by
South Carolina housewives. It is just
what is needed to supply the milk
we lack." _ (Adv

Where- Lies Responsibility?
Madison, May 8, 1922.
Editor Kooweo Courier:
Please allow me to speak, through
tho columns of your paper, Just a
few words to our honored County
Supervisor and bis board, our county
delegation and tho citizens of Oconoo,
li) rogard to tho road and bridge sit
We are very thankful for tho pros
pects and promises wo nov/ have of
having some work done on tho
"places" that wore once called roads.
We are also mindful of tho many
considerations of tho past, e^on down
to the administration of th\ late \V.
C. Foster, whoso untimely death
marked tho closo of road building
and maintenance in tho northwestern
Corner of Oconoe.
Tho "rJicos1' referred to above,
which will hereafter be termed roads,
aro badly in need of some attention.
Our prosent Supervisor on his cam
paign tour in 1020, expressed him
self of tho opinion that wo had been
given a dirty deal, and to-day <wo
find ourselves holding tho sumo band.
Is lt not time for a "square deal"?
Indeed it island therefore wo experi
enced a pleasant thrill when inform
ed by Mr. Shockley himself that ho
shall bo in our section In a very few
days. Humor has had lt that, owing to!
lack of money, the Supervisor would 1
send tho "chain gang" lo the "peni-j
tentiary," and I shall bo frank to
state that tho comment was general
that in such n transaction justice
would not have boen dono to ibo peo
plo of Oconee unless Ibo Supervisor,
his board nnd tho Oconee delegation
wore sent there, too, for tho remain
der of their terms of ofllce. 'However,
we shall be glad to forgive and for
get tho past, once ..our roads aro
worked out, so push forward, Mr.
Shockley, resting assured that your
good work will bo much appreciated,
and that the name of J. C. Shockley
will take its placo in history along
side that of tho late W. C. Foster
and others as a man who dealt
''square" to all In Oconee.
Yet, with all theso bright and
promising prospects, there is sllll a
frightful, ghostly story in our story
book-one whose sentiment and sen
sational incidents would rival our
most efflcient imaginative fiction
writers; yet wo must record it no?
as fiction, but as reality.
Yours ago it was deemed essential
to tho welfare and prosperity of Oco
nee to construct and maintain a
bridge over Tugaloo river, known as
Ibo Prather Bridge. In tho last days
of 1918 this bridge was washed away
and to-day (1922) wo still have no
bridge. Of course, this bridge would
give us a direct route to Toccoa, Ga.,
thereby benefiting the city of Toccoa
as well ns the citizens of Oconee; but
ls the lack of this br idge benefiting I
Westminster, (Walhalla, Seneca or j
any other Carolina lown? if it is, H
;- nIDst tho expense of tho rural citi
zens ol oar county. The people who
uro most accommodated by this,
bridge reside r.i irom tb roo to twenty
mik from 'Am town of Wcwininster.
Wo have seon our farm products
go to waste for lack of marketing
facilities. We have known our rela
tives and friends to be sick and In
need of our attention and comfort,
yet wo could not go to thom. Yes,
wo have seen our dear little children
sick and suffering-soon our moth
ers suffer and die without the proper
attention of n physician, and all on
account of the lack of this bridge.
Some ono might ask if wo depend
upon doctors from Toccoa, and wo
answer that, for some reason (prob
ably bad roads) the doctors of West
minster do not want the practice of
this corner. Upon making this state
ment to the Supervisor and his board
a few months ngo, lt was suggested
by ono that if wo would pay tho doc
tor ho would attend us. Now, we
challenge this honored member to
' cite us to any of our unpaid doctor
[bills in the State of South Carolina,
in order that wo may at once settle
tho same.
Wo have begged and plead for this
bridge until we are almost exhausted.
Wo have tried to be patient and man
ly. -Wo are loyal to our State and
willingly pay our State and county
taxes at the same ratio as tho rest of
tho citizens of Oconee, and local
school tax that rivals any rural dis
trict in U|e county. Yet we "ask for
bread and are given a stone; we "ask
for fish and* aro given a serpent."
We pleaded with tho Supervisor
and ho referred us to the Oconee del
egation. Wo pleaded with tho dele
gation and they referred us to the
Supervisor. Wo pleaded with them
together. Opposition was made to
levying a special tax for this brldgo
on tho ground that tho boll weevil
bad hit the people of tho lower part
of tho county In tho cotton belt, and
a higher tax would bo a burdon to
them. Just hore let us boast that,
although wo get no consideration at
tho hands of the road and brldgo of
ficials, this "honored visitor," tho
boll weovll, to whom you pay
so much respect, is no rospector
of persons, and is paying us a call,
too. This fact makes lt moro nocos
aary that this brldgo be built, for
how can wo livo on the farm under
boll weevil conditions without sys
tematic marketing, and how cnn wo
market without a market? With tho
above opposition beforo tho County
Board and county delegation, the Su
pervisor and lils board then passed
a resolution lo build this brldgo from
tho "first funds becoming available
for Oconee county." Our noblo Son
otor, hoing present and bearing tho
resolution, complimented us upon
gaining such a stop toward tho build
ing of the bridge, and promised "to
remember this resolution on the floor
of thc Sonnte." With all this, things
looked optimistic to us-. But, alas)
wo ure now told thnt '.here is no bono
on earth for this bridge this year.
Where is tho hitch? Did Senator
Mason "forget" lo "remember" us
and lot tho appropriation bili go on
through without providing any funds
whatever for Oconoo? Did ho re
mombor us and cut Oconoe's appro*
