*MONEY AND ITS BENEHTS. "
Everybody knows what money
is. Wc probably hear that word
used more than any Qther in the
English language ant] today tho
world is talking money abovo and
beyond everything else. It is tho
drcam/>f thc young man and maiden
to some day have money. It is the
desire of those who already have a
goodly portion of the world's
goods to get more money. In fact
it is fast eclipsing everything oise
if it has not already done so. It
is the key which unlocks every
door but that of eternal life and
some people are sacrificing even
that for money.
"Money is the root of all evil,"
says tho Bible and wc sec that
fact illustrated day by day. Men
rarely ever do evil for anything
else than money. Or at least
it is the cause of more evil than
any other ono thing. No matter
what the apparent cause of a wrong
is if you will trace it back to its
source you will invariably lind
that money is the starting point
and that from it all of the latter
consequences How.' People will
rob, steal, lie. burn, and even
commit murder for money. It
was the love of money which
caused Benedict Arnold to be
tray his country. That arch trai
tor of them all Judas Iscariot gave
his Eord into the hands of his ene
mies for filthy money. Homes are
ruined for money. Character and
virtue are sold for money. In
short there arc all kinds of crimes
and whole lists of evils which arc
laid at the door of money.
Here in our own state wc have
?nd can cite many examples of tho
abuse of money. All are familiar

high in the social and religious
circles, once they got connected
with the dispensary seemed to
lose whatever force of character
?nd principle they had along this
line and would join in the grab
game, the stealing of '"blood"
money as it was often called. A
terrible abuse of money that was
and will long stand as a blotch up
on the otherwise fair and proud
name of thc state of South Caro
Various are the abuses to which
mont y is put. Men gamble, buy
their way into the legislative halls,
stand as guardains and the lawma
kers of the people and pose as vir
tuous and high minded men, when
in fact they aro nothing but frauds
and vampires. Sucking the very
heart out of the poor people for
money. Causing untold su Hering
and misery for the getting hold of
the hard earned wages of the la
boring people, and then turning
philanthropists in the latter days
of their lives, money is being
abused wofully by some men.
Another very llngrant abuse ol'
money is war. Men and nations
array themselves in armies and
Meets, pillage, bum and kill and it
takes money to carry all this on.
The history of thc world bears us
out in this Statement and will fur
nish evidence OH almost every page
of one of the greatest abuses to
which money has Ween subjected
from almost the timi- man was first
Wc can't take space lo incut ion
all the abuses of money, Trusts,
monopolies, liulawful combina
tions, the shielding of thc crimi
nal because he is a man high in lin
money world, the sale ofJhpiOrb.V
the state and county, and many oth
cr examples of tho abuse of nioner
could lie told bul those will have
Standing in contrast and pre
scnting a pleasing side of tho pict
ure if we can so image money
is the good will and Hie cheer which
money is causing everyday. Men
nie able to supply the needs of
this life and to live in comfort
with money. They can get all con
voniencnces and to uso an everyday
commercial expression. It is tho
whole thing:. Education tho Chris
tianizing of tho world, aro some
of tho benefits which aro dorivod
from tho right usc of money. Not
counting physical comforts-and
tho good will which is accomplish
ed in this is almost innumerable
tho carrying of tho gospel of peace
to the heathorn and unsaved by
means of money more than repays
for all abuses.
In furthering peace and good
will among mankind money is
nccccssary. And this is brought
about not so much by money but
by conditions which arise through
the right uso of money. People
who are at first warlike and wick
ed become educated and enlight
ened through the means and influ
ences which money creates. Then
follows a passing and a getting a
way from thc animal instincts and
thc impulses of first blush ana a
getting nearer to the higher and
more nobler allairs of life. Tho
promotion of the brotherhood of
man is one of tho grandest and
most magnificent teachings of tho
world and of the present day gen
We might outline other uses of
money. Follow the child which is
trained from thc cradle through
manhood and on into after life by
the right use of money and we can
see a good example of its right
handling. Thc child is trained
properly, honoring its parents and
worshiping its God, grows up to
make an ideal man or woman and
passing away leaves behind an
honored name. This life is a
blessing to humanity and meets all
of the requirements of the use for
which money was intended.

consideration thc matter of obtain

hnaliy reaching tuc modern cut is
due perhaps more to education
than to any thing else. All of the
good results from education along
some linc. With education has
come onlightment and all of tho
higher aspirations of the human
race. The lifting above tho com
mon level and that power which
enables man and woman to stand

every day life is resulting from
education anti makes firmer and
more real their fast hold on the
Hock of Ages. It has ever been.
thus and will always bo so. Al
though we sometimos think that
thc people today aro money mad,
vet when we view the good which
is being accomplished through thc
right use. of money wc will see
that our first impression is wrong.
There are a gi cat many good and
noble men and women still lefi and
we verily believe that the world
today is nearer the Brotherhood of

ever has been before in all history. [

It docs scorn that women havo

and pains that afflict humanity;
they must "keep up" must attend
to duties in sp*.to of constantly
aching backs or headaches, dizzy
spoils, bearing-down pains; they
must stoop o vor, when to stoop
means torture? They must walk and
bend and work with racking pains
and many aches from kidney ills.
Kidneys cause more suffering than
any other organ of the body. Koop
thc kidneys well and health is easily
maintained. Read of a remedy for
kidneys only that helps and cures (
tho kidneys and is endorsed by v
people von know.

very thankful for what Doans Kid
ney Pills did for me and willingly
recommend them. 1 was bothered
for a long time by dull, nagging
backaches, tho pains often extend
ing into my loins. Headaches and
dizzy spells occured frequently. I
could not rest well at night and
morning arose so tired and lang
uid that I did not feel like commenc
ing thc day's duties. I was also
bothered by a frequent desire to
pass the kidney secretions from' c'
this I decided that my kidney were
out of order. Reading about Doan's
Kidney Pills, I had my husband
procure a box for me at J.T Doug
las drug store and I began taking
them, following the directions
closely. They gave me moro relief
than any remedy I had previously
taken not only stopping thc back
aches but strengthening my kidneys
and restoring my lost energy."
