REPLIES TO "AUNT KATE".

"profane" expren3s's ft but mildly.
Blease has this one redeeming point
at any rate. He is willing to serve
the masses of the people-those who
need his help most. My grandmother
used to say, "Take care of the dimes
and the dollars will take care of them
selves." So it is with our government,
if it takes care of the poor the rich
can take care of themselves. I again
ask the question "What is Smith do
ing to help the southern cotton grow
The national government loans mon
ey to these southern banks at 3 per
cent and look -what the fanmers have
to do to borrow it from them. Help
Ing the people indeed! It is helping
only those who do not need h)elp.
Another point: Bleaseism has al
ways been open and above board. 1Hv
oi your nuch praised Jennings admit
ted that he admired that principle in
Blease, for 1he always knows where
Blease stands. I am told that last
spring in the county convention the
Bleasclies called for an open ballot
while the anties Contended for a pri
vate ballot. You call rest assured
Aunt Kate that you wvill never be bush
whacked by a Hlleaseite. For this same
reason it Is quite clear that Ifclntosh
Was not, shot. by a illeaseite last 81111
m'er in Columbia.
And right now, while I think of it,
I wIshi to remind Aunt Kate that
Blease and his supporters are co
workers, and not coat-tail swingers
any more than the anties are.
I pity the poor unll fortiutnate men who
failed to cast their aloilt in their
own interest wiei they had the oppor
tunity to do so.
.Some are (evidently so st pr'omely
happy over having gained their point
that they are utterly oblivious to the
real condition of their surroundings.
That( to my mind) Is where the real
And yet, perhaps "Where ignorance
is bliss. 'tis folly to be wise." And

ANOTHER DOCTOR'S EXPERI
ENCE WITH EX-ZEMA-FO
Dr. B. F. lawley, 3646 Chestnut
St., Philadelphia, writes: "Some
mon-ths ago my attention was called
to EX-ZEMA-FO, claimed to be a
specific for eczema. The remedy was
highly lauded by an eminent jurist,
who obtained complete relief from its
use. I am somewhat loath to employ
or recommend secret or proprietary
medicines or lotions not knowing their
compouid: but oil investigating I was
convinced of its harmlessiess and em
ployed it in some dozen or more cases
with perfect satisfaction. A strange
thing occurred during my observa
tions,%'viz.: A member of my4 own
family was suddenly afflicted with
general eczema. I used E)C.ZEMA
FO freely with the satisfaction of
procuring both lprompt ad lasting re
lief. My senst of /edical ethics
would prevent ine tendering you
this testimonial t my feeling of
grat'efulness in aving obtained both
the product and necessary informa
tion from you, may perhaps justify
my sending you this communication.
You are entitled to this." So confi
dent are we that EX-ZEMA-FO will
relieve any case of eczema or other
skin trouble that we agree to refund
the purchase price if results are not
satisfactory. 50 cents and $1.00.
