A STATE BUILDINGThe
State newspaper does not be>
Jieve it a- good plan for the State of ,
South Carolina to provide a suitable
office building for the departments,
basing its opposition mainly
on the ground that it would
* not prove an attractive investment. *We
are not quite prepared to take this
view, but even if it were true, the
State of South Carolina would in no i
sense be embarking in the business of j
becoming a landlord, but only providing
adequate quarters for necessary
actitviies with some eye to the
convenience of the State's citizens ]
%
who have busines with these departments.
\
It is hardly to be doubted that
strictly from an investment standpoint
the State house and the, commodious
grounds surrounding it could be sold
and the officials quartered there
housed at a rental below the interest
on the sale, but would it really be; a ,
profit to the State or Columbia?
The legislature can provide a build- j
ing to house practically all the State's
'agents without increasing the taxes
and it ought to do so.
Persop^t ,b^s|fcess Nnith?:sev- j
eral departments in? <ai-day and limited
as to time in Columbia are inconvenienced
byw the ; present patch\vork,
which reflects little credit 'on the j
State. I
Building costs are not likely to drop (
materially right away. The rental
paid by the State thi^year would more t
than give a 7 p?r ctent. gross, return
t * f ? ?"
on a half million ' dollar building, ^
which even in this, tpine o^ught to provide
a respectable structure.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Tomorrow - is \ ffeV; Year's day the i
beginning of : ai * hfew twelvemonth
which, lik'o others past and gone, will
be full of opportunity for service and
...If' 1
for work. Looking back to New
Year's 1919 it might be well to recall
.With what exhiliration and buoyant ]
hope the American people, fresh from ,
a victorious war, faced a pleasing t
prospect of a return to normal conditions.
Unfortunately the leven of unrest i
and the greed of the profiteer have
delayed and hampered the return to
normal.
For 1920 the only visible cloud on
the bright sky is this same spirit,
which -is yet abroad in the land. It
is the biggest problem we have to
face. Upon its solution will rest our
national prosperity. There was never
more work and fewer workers in the
. United States than today and there
was never more general prosperity or
more opportunity for legitimate money-making
by all classes of people.
But we need to work, we need to forget
war-time profits and war-time
wages and come back to a live-and-let
live basis. We need to submerge
some ol^our natural human greed
and be willing to see the other fellow
have a chance. V ' 1
The new year will afford renewed
opportunity for the practice of the
old, homely virtues of industry, thrift,
honesty and fair dealing. There was 1
never a time when this combination
would not return handsome dividends';
but they should pay more handsomely
than ever, now.
For everybody in America, the prospect
was never brighter. Let's, all put
our shoulder tfhe apd make
it a record breaker. 11/ \ J
The Dispatch-News wishes a happy
New Tear to all of its patrons and
readers. We are under many obli

gallons to them, for helpful encouragement
during the year just closing.
For 1920 ..wevpromise them to do our
best to serve the interests of Lexington
County.
Happy New Year to all!

.. into the Healthy,. Fuli-Blooded
' ' Class
How the red-blooded, energetic, and
attractive man or woman is envied by
those who feel that it will always be
their unfortunate lot to be thin, pule,
and weak-bodied! ; : ' :
And yet why continue'- envy men
and women who possess a vigorous,
healthy physical condition and an attactive,
magnetic personality? Poor
health and lack of vitality an; often
merely the result of impoverished
blood. V ' . i- !
Glide's Pepto-Mangan is for people
whose bodies suffer from lack of
proper blood nourishment. PeptoMangan
enriches the blood and in
" % ? | i . ,
creases the number of healthy 1 j-ed
blood cells, which are so necessary to
carry the proper nourishment, vigorousness,
and strength to every part of
the body. \ i ; ' . ' '
PVivsietwro; introduced (iude's ^en
to-Mangan to the public because they
knew that it contained the very prop3rties
that are so sorely needed to
build up thin, watery blood. For.
ycur convenience Pepto-Mangan is
prepared in two forms, liquid and tablet.
Both contain exactly the same
medicinal value.
Insist on the genuine Pepto-Manjaii.;
To be sure you are buying the
genuine Pepto-Mangan, ask. your
Iriiggist for "Gude's." And be sure the
nam? "Gude's.' is on the package.
