[headline spans cols. 1-2] FIGHTING AT WEST AND EAST ENDS OF THE FRONTIER LINE ----------o---------- REPORT FROM SWITZERLAND OF BATTLE NEAR THAT COUNTRY. ----------o---------- STRUGGLE IN BELGIUM AWAY FROM LIEGE ----------o---------- Nothing Definite Received as to Either of These Engagements— Alleged That Many Men Have Been Killed and Wounded. ----------o---------- Brussels, Aug. 13.—The fighting yesterday between the Belgian and German armies in the vicinity of Diest lasted the entire day and constituted the first considerable battle of war. It will be known as the battle of Haelen. Shells were still falling at 7:30 last night on the roads around Diest.

The battle centered around Haelen in the Belgium province of Limburg, extending to Diest in the north of the province of Brabant after passing around [Seelburn?]. At 7 o'clock last night all the country between the three towns was cleared of German troops except dead and wounded, who were thickly strewn aound the fire zone. Upwards of two hundred dead German soldiers were counted in a space fifty yards square. The strength of the German column was about five thousand men.

Another, Via Switzerland London, Aug. 13.—An Exchange Telegram dispatch from Basel, Switzerland, says a terrible battle has been fought at [Loelhausen?]. Hospital facilities are absolutely inadequate for the incredible number of wounded. All hospitals are filled and schools churches and hotels occupied to their capacity. Special trains were required to carry the wounded to [Müllheim?], Saint Ludwig and other towns. The latest estimates place the German losses at eight to ten thousand. ----------o---------- Same as Yesterday. Paris, Aug. 13.—Official comunication state that the troops at Liepe are still holding out, Belgians to the west of the city resumed the offensive, drove the Germans back and recaptured level ground after a sharp struggle. Belgians have dynamited many bridges on the railroads in the German's rear, cutting the enemy off from their supply base. ----------o---------- Fighting Carnage Brussels, Aug. 13.—An official communication confirms yesterday's Belgian success over the Germans at Haelen. It says the German casualties very heavy, three- fifths of their troops being killed or wounded, while the Belgian casualties are reported small. ---------o---------- Liverpool Cotton Market. Liverpool, Aug. 13.—Fourteen hundred bales of American spot cotton were sold here today on the basis of 6.50 D for middling. Receipts were five thousand bales, all American. -----------------------o------------------------- GERMANS KIND TO AMERICANS ---------o---------- Will Care for Stranded Tourists in Their Homes Without Cost. ---------o---------- Berlin, Via Copenhagen and London, Aug. 13—A meeting of five hundred Americans in the German capital was informed last night that many German families are ready to take stranded Americans into their houses, without cost. The first on the list willing to do so is Adolf [Wormuth?], lord mayor, who declared he would take three Americans. The banks are also ready to grant important credits to Americans. The president of the Bank of Germany declared he would grant $1,250,000 against adequate security. -----------------------o------------------------- CANDIDATES SPEAK AT JUDSON TONIGHT. ---------o---------- There will be a political meeting at Judson Mill tonight. All the county candidates will be present and it is very probable that Sam J. Nicholls and Jos. T. Johnson, candidates for congress will also speak. The public is cordially invited. -----------------------o------------------------- FIRE ON BUNCOMBE ROAD.

Last evening a fire occurred out along the Buncombe Road probably several miles beyond the San Souci Club House. It is supposed that it was the home of Mr. J. L. Watkins, who lives in that direction. The fire was visible in that portion of the [faded] around the Southern depot.

It seems to have been a blaze of some extent as it continued for a good while. -----------------------o------------------------- FIRST FROM GERMANY.

FRENCH OFF GERMAN SOIL ---------o---------- DIRECT WIRELESS MESSAGE AT LAST RECEIVED FROM BERLIN[S?] ---------o---------- Berlin, Aug. 13—(By direct wireless from [Nuueen, Nuenen?], Germany to Goldschmidt Wireless Company's station, Tuckerton, New Jersey)—German troops took 120 French officers and eleven hundred French soldiers in the fighting at Muelhausen, Alsace. They also captured four French cannon. Another one thousand French officers and men were taken prisoners by the Germans in the fighting new Longway. German soil is now [blurry] entirely of French troops. ---------o---------- There is evidently an error in the above dispatch, for even a Mexican army would not have 120 officers to 1110 privates. It probably should have read 20 officers.—Ed. Piedmont. -----------------------o------------------------- AMERICAN YACHT RACES POSTPONED ---------o---------- New York, August 13.—The New York Yacht club does not consider it proper for the races for the America's cup to be held this October in view of the European war situation. G. A. Cormuck, secretary of the club today cabled H. L. Garrett of the Ulster Yacht club the following.

"We regret that in the view of grave conditions due to the war, we do not think it proper to race in October. We are willing to postpone the series until [1915?]. We suggest a cable reply as soon as possible." ---------o---------- TURKEY SAID TO HAVE BOUGHT TWO CRUISERS ---------o---------- Paris, Aug. 13—It is announced here that the alleged purchase by Turkey of the German cruisers [Gonhen?] and Breslau, announced by Constantinople, will probably be the subject of a damand for an explanation by France and her allies. -----------------------o------------------------- SHOCKLEY-WATSON REUNION

The relatives and descendents of John Peter and Phoebe Watson Shockley, deceased, are invited to meet at Chick Springs on Wednesday, Aug. 10 and enjoy a reunion of said relatives. All are asked to bring well filled baskets and it is hoped that all will attend. _____________________________________ MAP SHOWING BIRD'S-EYE VIEW OF TROOPS OPERATING AROUND FRANCO-GERMAN FRONTIER.

WAR CAUSES FALLING-OFF OF REVENUE ----------o---------- DEFICIT WILL PROBABLY EXCEED ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS ----------o---------- WILL DECREASE FROM A DECREASE OF IMPORTS ----------o---------- Plans to Impose Other Taxes Which Will Supply the Needed Revenue. Internal Revenue Tax, Especially on Whiskey to Be Raised. ----------o---------- Washington, August 13.—Secretary McAdoo and Chairman Underwood of the house ways and means committee conferred today over methods of raising about one hundred million dollars to offset the loss to the United States in imports from warring countries, the tables indicating what might be raised by increased taxes on liquor and adding to the income tax. The experts informally admitted that the probable revenue loss for the year would be nearly $100,000,000. A definite plan of action by Representative Underwood and Chairman Simmons of the senate finance committee, who have been studying the situation, awaits the advice of McAdoo and President Wilson. The normal revenues from imports from the war zone totals about $145,000,000 annually. -----------------------o------------------------- ATLANTIC SAID TO BE CLEAR ----------o---------- London, August 13.—The official press bureau here describing today the disposition of the British cruisers in the Atlantic and elsewhere, urges traders of all nations doing business with Great Britain to send their cargoes confidently and boldly in British or nuetral ships in all directions except the North Sea. The French fleet [blurry] the Mediterranean and England has practically cleared the North Atlantic. -----------------------o------------------------- GERMAN CRUISER OFF TARHEEL'S COAST ----------o---------- Beaufort, N. C., Aug. 13.—A German warship has been cruising off the North Carolina coast about forty miles to sea for the last three days, according to the commander of the United States fish commission steamer Fish Hawk, which has been operating off the Beaufort har[bor?].

A STATEMENT FROM LONDON ----------o---------- No Hint as to Disposition of the Allied Armies in Europe. ----------o---------- London, Aug. 13—Developments in the war zone are vague, owing to the strict censorship over news relating to military movements. The positions occupied by the main French, Belgian and British forces are not permitted to be disclosed, even approximately, so that their plan of campaign cannot be assumed. As to the German forces, indications from various sources point to concentration of the main body with its right wing in Belgium and its left wing in Luxemburg. The German staff is said to have gathered twenty-six army troups along the western frontier, facing Belgium and France. Many of these troops are probably stationed at the great fortresses in Alsace–Lorraine and along the Rhine river. One dispatch asserts the defense of Germany's Russian frontier has been left to armies of reserves. Although these are [gained?] soldiers, it would seem natural to leave as a nucleus for their organization a considerable force from the active army. The disposition and strength of the French in Alsace, where they are said to hold a long line within the German border, are rigidly sucret. -----------------------o------------------------- MORE WORK PLACED ON THE AMERICAN CONSULS ----------o---------- London, Aug. 13.—Since the declaration of war was made public a number of Austo-Hungarians [liable?] for military duty, have applied at the American consulate for service. In accordance with previous interactions from Secretary Bryan, American consuls throughout Britain took over the Austrian consulates.

And Yet Again. London, Aug. 13.—The French foreign minister in a dispatch says the Belgian army and forces around Liege are intact and prepared to resist all attacks. -----------------------o------------------------- INVESTIGATION ASKED OF RISE OF PROVISIONS ----------o---------- Washington, Aug. 13.—President Wilson today directed Attorney General McReynolds to investigate the recent increases in food stuff prices and to take up the question whether any persons responsible can be prosecuted. -----------------------o------------------------- SPECIAL SERVICES.

There will be special services held at St. Mary's Catholic Church, tomorrow and Saturday. Tomorrow, from [5?] to 6 P. M. will be held the [holy?] hour. [On Saturday. Tomorrow,?] of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary will be celebrated with a Mass at 7 A. M. The public is welcome to this service. Saunday, Mass will be celebrated at 10 A. M.

THREE OF THE CANDIDATES AT HOME TODAY ----------o---------- LAURENS' FAVORITE SONS WELL [RECEIVED?] ON THEIR NATIVE HEATH ----------o---------- One Heckler Was Removed by the Police Amid Applause—Aspirants and Newspaper Men Entertained in Private Homes. ----------o---------- Laurens, S. C., Aug. 13.—Laurens county accorded its three candidates for state offices, William C. Irby and Robert A. Cooper, candidates for governor, and J. H. Warton, candidate for railroad commissioner, an enthusiastic welcome home today. According to the usual custom they made no speeches and only exchanged a few words of greeting with their friends.

One of the largest crowds that has faced the candidates during the campaign met them here about 1,300 people being present. Except in [torn] the best of order prevailed.

By reason of the reapirs which the hotels is undergoing all of the candidates and newspaper men were entertained in the hospitable homes of the Laurens citizens.

The meeting was called to order at 10:30 by acting county chairman George D. Browning and opened with prayer by the Rev. J. R. T. Major. The meeting was held in a natural ampitheater with the speakers' stand in the center and the crowd seated on the surrounding shaded slopes.

"We are going to have some [poli-?] cal funerals in this state on Aug. 26th that will be for the welfare of this state," declared W. H. Hamer, candidate for lieutenant governor. His prediction that South Carolina will return to the principle of "the law above the man, and not the man above the law" was received with applause. At this point the police removed a persistent heckler from immediately in front of the speakers' stand amid loud applause from the audience.

Andrew J. [Bethen?] again attacked W. H. Hamer for not supporting Dr. S. C. Mitchell when he was asked to resign by Governor Blease. Mr. Hamer, he said, was an appointee of Governor Blease.

R. A. Cooper, as one of the "Home foks," was received with thunderous applause as he appeared. He said:

"I shall not discuss here the important issues that are before us, but give my time to our honored guests. But you will pardon me in saying (CONTINUED ON PAGE FIVE)

AMERICANS GETTING OUT ----------o---------- FOUR HUNDRED PASS FROM GERMANY INTO HOLLAND ON THEIR WAY HOME. ----------o---------- Berlin, Aug. 13.—A special train with four hundred Americans left this afternoon for Holland. Other Americans leave soon. The leading banks are now paying cash on credit letters. ----------o---------- Now in Holland. Amsterdam, Aug. 13.—A special train carrying four hundred Americans arrived from Berlin this morning. The party was under the direction of the United States ambassador to Germany, James W. Gerard. It proceeded to Rotterdam. They will sail for the United States on a Holland-American liner. -----------------------o------------------------- DENMARK DETERMINED TO REMAIN NEUTRAL ----------o---------- Copenhagen, Aug. 13.—Political authorities believe Denmark's neutrality must be maintained at all costs. Otherwise it would increase economic distress, which is already acute. Large quantities of goods are already being exported to the combatants. Germany has removed her tariff restrictions, but requires shipments to be in large quantities. The export of Danish goods to England commences tonight, the goverrnment insuring against war risk. -----------------------o------------------------- BRITISH FOR SHELLED A JAPANESE STEAMER ----------o---------- Shanghai, Aug. 13.—The Japanese steamer Shikoku Maru was seriously damaged today and one number of the crew killed by a cannon shot fired from the British fort at Hong Kong while the vessel was entering the harbor. It paid no heed to harbor regulations. Two warning shots across her bow didn't stop her and a third shell then struck amidships. A government tug afterward [blurry] the steamer to her berth. -----------------------o------------------------- PEACE TREATIES TAKEN UP. Washington, Aug. 13.—Secretary Bryan's twenty peace treaties, which President Wilson has urged for immediate ratification, were taken on by the senate yesterday in executive session.

STRONG STATEMENT BY PO LOCK AT THE MEETING THIS MORNING. ----------o---------- JENNINGS DENOUNCED GOVERNOR'S RECOR[D] ----------o---------- Paid Especial Attention to Clemen[cy] Shown Men Whose Crimes We[re] Against Women—Criticism of Go[v-] ernor's Refusal to Appoint Non[?] nees. ----------o---------- Marion, August 13.—J. W. Joh[n-] son, county chairman called the 3d meeting of the senatorial campaign [to] order here this morning at 11 o' clock.

1. D. Jennings, of Sumter was t[he] first speaker. His initial rema[rks] were devoted to reasons why [he] entered the race. "In my opini[on] Governor Blease's record is the di[rti-] est record ever made by a white m[an] in any white country," was the w Mr. Jennings prefaced his attack the record of the chief executive. [He] predicted the governor's defeat by [a] landslide, on Augst 25th.

Mr. Jennins said he had visit[ed] [98?] counties and had seen 18,0[00] men; you, 20,000 men, who support[ted] the governor two years and now vote against him for the [faded]." has seen only three men who he changed—"the editor of a newspap[er] in Hampton, the son of the late G[ov-] ernor McSweeney, Eugene McSwee[n-] ey; John F. Grace, who said imaginable things against Blease t[wo] years ago, and John G. Richards, w[ho] is trying to fool the Beasites to into the governor's office.

In the endeavor to show that t[he] governor in continal incansistencies always stood on the side of the "v of womanhood," the speak[er] narrated in detail the case and roles of Richey and Emmerson. also told of the "trial" of Dr. [El?] Sumers. The crowd listed w[ith] rapt attention to his [blurry].

Mr. Jennings said he himself was have signed the petition for Emmerson's parole if the condition was Emerson to take [blurry] Blease of the state with him."

W.. P. Pollock, the second speak[er,] was greeted by cheers when int[ro-] duced. The speaker wanted to kn[ow] if "Haskelism" is any worse th[an] "Bleasism," as exemplified by L. Blease, who refused to app the primary nominee of the party.

He praised Judge Haskel and a he would rather be dead [faded] leader of the "Independents" in than be Cols. L. Blease, alive.

In discussing the immediat[e] question, Mr. Pollock said he is [a] member of the Junior Order [of] American Mechanics.

Mr. Pollock, as usual, severly [ex-] coriated the record of the govern[or] paying particular attention to the [blurry] "Colonels" on the govern[or's] staff.

"Never mind," said a man in [the] audience to another, "He (Mr. P[ol-] lock made one convert --that's m[e.]

The governor quoted his St. M[at-] thews speach, which said that Jo[seph] Kingston deserted the Democratic pa[rty] and "was a candidate for office [of] the Populist ticket."

The chief executive said he is go[ing] to be elected and his enemies [are] desperate and resorting to "d method"; that the were endeavo[ring] to keep away from the King[ston] meeting Saturday. He [blurry] [tapped?] those people of Marines, of whom, he claimed, [faded] for [blurry] Deas, running for sen[ate] against Col. Stackhouse. He launched into an unusually bitter attack on Senator Smith during [the] course of his remarks applying epithet "negro lover" in the

Applause followed the introduct[tion] of Senator Smith, who said that people should not be as much in[tere-] sted in one individual as the pr[ros-] perity of the state.

[column 1 top section]

ZEPPLIN'S INVINCIBLE? ---------o---------- INTERESTING DISCUSSION OF A STRANGE SUGGESTION AS TO THE PRESENT WAR ---------o---------- Commenting the other day upon the extraordinary self-confidence displayed by Germany in defying nation after nation in Europe, we ventured the suggestion that this self confidence might be based on facts of which the world outside of Germany knows nothing. The numerical strength, perfect organization and theoretical all round efficiency of the German army did not in themselves seem sufficient to warrant the assurance with which the Kaiser and his people were setting about the task of thrashing almost the whole of Europe. It was suggested as being not utterly beyond the bounds of possibility that Germany has some other reliance in addition to the known efficiency of her army and navy, that possibly she is the possessor of some potent secret, some new and dreadful agent of destruction against which neither fleets nor armies can stand and which she has good reason to believe will render her invincible even when faced by odds as heavy as those which now confront her.

Now comes Dr. Armgaard Karl Graves and says Germany has precisely such a secret, precisely such an irrisitable agent of destruction. In a long article in Collier's Weekly he tells the world all about it. Dr. Graves seems to be a former German secret agent operating in England and other European countries and gathering information for the GerGeneral Staff for use in case of war. His name figured prominently some months ago, unless we are mistaken in some of the Hearst papers in connection with "revelations" of some sort which, if they were veratious ought to have made a tremendous stir in the world. Nothing much seemed to come of them, however, and that seemed at the time sufficient reason for concluding that one had to take Dr. Graves with a grain of salt. Similarly, what he says about Germany now will have to be taken with a grain of salt or better yet, with several grains. Still, he claims to know what he is talking about and to be telling nothing but the truth, and it is worth while noting what he has to say, although nobody is called upon to believe unless events confirm the Doctor's statements.

One learns from Grave's long and plausible article that Germany's most potent weapon in this war will be her fleet of dirigibles. Her whole military organization is the most efficient that the world has ever seen, he declares, and he gives a full account of it in all its departments and activities; but it is his alleged revelation regarding Germany's aerial navy that give color to the theory that the Kaiser has a surprise in tore for his enemies. So far as the rest of

[article continues on column 2, top section]

the world knows, says Dr. Graves, Germany has twelve Jeppelins available for military service, she can send fifty Zepplins to war. Moreover, most of these are Zeppelins of a type that the world knows knothing of. They are not Zeppelins of the kind that have met with so many accidents and disasters that the military experts of France and England do not believe that the dirigible can be of much practical service in the war. These are two conditions under which Zeppelins are operated in Germany, says Dr. Graves. One is the ordinary, more or less well known system under which all the disasters that have been told about in the newspapers have occured. The other system is a secret known only to the German General Staff and never used except in specific secret tests. Under this system, according to Dr. Graves, 75 per cent of the liability of accident is eliminated and the military Zeppelin becomes an invincible engine of war.

The secret devices of the German war office, he says, have overcome the objectionable features of the ordinary Zeppelin in bulk, heaviness of structure, inflammability of gas, and in[suficiancy?] of fuel capacity. A new metal lighter than aluminum and as strong as steel; a new gas having three times the lifting power of ordinary hydrogen gas, non-inflammable and easily generated by a Zeppelin in midear, which is thus able to replenish its gas bag whenever necessary— those are the potent secrets whic, according to Dr. Graves, Germany has up her sleeve and which have given her an air fleet able to destroy the air fleets and the maritime navies and the embattled armies, and the fortified strongholds of any other war. One of Germany's secret Zeppelins, according to Dr. Graves, could easily sail over to French frontier, dynamite the fortifications of Paris and return without even descending to earth or approaching close enough to the surface to be brought down by the French guns. Aeroplanes would be impotent against it, he says, because it can sail at a height of 10,- 000 feet, with its crew warm and comfortable in its heated compartments, while the [aeroplanist?] who goes up to 6,000 feet is so benumbed cold that he is useless for anything except guiding his machine. From the Zeppelin would fall a rain of a new German explosive which sets fire to anything it hits and which has tremendous expansive force, and whatever ware underneath it, whether it were a fort or a fleet or an army, would be wiped out of existence.

That is all very interesting and it may be true. There are marvelous inventive brains in Germany and nobody knows what they have accomplished in the way of devising new agencies of destruction. Moreover, if the Zeppelin is reaily a failure, it is passing strange that the Germans should have stuck to it so long; and finally, as remarked before, the assurance with which Germany has pitted herself against almost an entire continent looks suspicious. But if the Germans have these marvelous

[article continues on column 3, middle section]

Zeppelins against which nothing can stand, why did they waste thousands of men in the assaults on Liege? Why did they not send a Zeppelin to destroy the Liege forts? Why have they not by this time wiped out the British fleet by raining explosives down upon it from the skies? Why have their aerial squadrons not yet bombarded Paris and London? And why does Dr. Graves, who is himself a German, divulge the secrets which the German General Staff has been at such pains to keep from all the world?—News and Courier -----------------------o------------------------- [return to column 3, top section]

MEAT CAUSE OF KIDNEY TROUBLE ---------o---------- Take a Glass of Salts if Your Back Hurts or Bladder Bothers— Meat Forms Uric Acids. ---------o---------- If you must have your meat every day, eat it, but flush your kidneys with salts occasionally, says a noted authority, who tells us that meat forms uric acid which almost paralyzes the kidneys in their efforts to expel it from the blood. They become sluggish and weaken, then you suffer with a dull misery in the kidney region, sharp pains in the back or a sick headache, dizziness, your stomach sours, tongue is coated and when the weather is bad you have rheumatic twinges. The urine gets cloudy, full of sediment, the channels often get sore and irritated, obliging you to seek relief two or three times during the night.

To neutralize these irritating acids, to cleanse the kidneys and flush off the body's urnous waste get four ounces of Jad Salts from any pharmacy here; take a tablespoon in a glass of water before breakfast for a few days and your kidneys will then act fine. This famous salts is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined with Lithia, and has been used for generations to flush and stiumulate sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize the acids in urine, so it no longer irritates, thus ending bladder weakness.

Vacations as Divoce Preventatives

New York, Aug. 13—There are persons who come frankly out in the open and say that every husband and wife should now and then take a vacation from each other. Dr. Mary Halton, graduate of the University of California, who has done excellent work as a physician, says that there is a true biological basis for vacations from matrimony. If the caveman husband hadn't taken a vacation from his wife every so often, we'd still be living in caves," the doctor averred seriously. "If that ancient ancestor had been content with his woman and his hollow in the rocks, so content that he never wanted to leave them, the race would have made no progress. Now two human beings ought to try to be absolutely sufficient unto themselves. Coming down in the Middle Ages we find that the medieval husband and wives were continually taking vacations from each other. They weren't called vacations from matrimony but they amounted to the same thing. The huns were all the time hurrying off to the Crusades or to other wars and averaged months away from home every year. Now we need a substitute custom since there are few [cats?] and no pre - historic monsters to affect temporary seperations. ["]Both husbands and are the better for each an arrangement," insisted Dr. Halton. "Why, I've known of ever so many cases in which a temporary vacation from matrimony averted a permanent one—a divorce!" she exclaimed. "I've even prescribed furloughs for husbands and wives who got on each oother's nerves. The one possession we guard most jealously is our personal liberty. The wife who [faded] and whines when her husband goes on a men's fishing trip, the husband who objects to his wife's occasional abscences, are doing their best to kill love and destroy the [faded] happiness and goodfellowship of married life."

Traded for African Ivory

Ending a twelve thousand [illegible] age which included the navigation of many unchartered rivers of Africa, where ivory valued at [illegible] was received in trade from uncivilized tribes of natives, the Franzfeldt a German freight ship, has just exchanged one of the most interesting cargoes ever seen here. Her voyage was one of the most unusual of any undertaken in recent years. The freighter left almost four months ago, burdened with cheap [calicos?] of [flaring?] patterns, gaudy watchess and other jewelry of all descriptions, antiquated opera hats, starched [cuffs?] [illegible] and other articles designed to catch the eye of the simple minded African native. Plus [winers?] a delicacy among the wild Africans, was also a part of the cargo. These articles were traded for [faded] elephant tusks, ostrich plumes, animal

[article continues on col. 5, top section]

skins, and miscellaneous products of the African desert and jungle. That the venture was a paying one was conceded by Captain Courdes and the officers of the Franzfeldt who are anxious to repeat the voyage. Even in the remotest regions inquiries were frequently made by the natives for liquor. None was carried for barter by the Franzfeldt althouth other vessels which have carried liquor exclusively, as it has been found to be the best stock of trade. Three small boys, picked up at [Borneo?], and two Zulus, shipped at [illegible], were additions to the crew when she arrived there. They were awe stricken at the sight of the skyscrapers of [Manhalian?] and refused to leave the vessel when other members of the crew offered to show them about on shore. This trip up the bay was a continuous panorama of wonders for the natives.

Why Be Mildewed at 40

What shall a woman past forty do with the rest of her life? Assuming she is a mother, her children are launched by that time upon their individual endeavors. If she is a [childless?] wife, she has probably mothered her husband's activities to the point of excess, and her home has reached a smooth-running efficiency, which offers leisure. If, on the other hand, our woman of forty has preferred butterfly life to wife and motherhood, even romance and gayety begin to wane after forty. If [wage?] [coming?] and responsiblity have occupied her [blurry] year. Finally at forty a woman has won success who can afford to take breath and look around a while. All have a similar problem: What to do with the per[blurry] years after forty? Women of a century ago were not troubled with this problem. They either drudged along in the kitchen or in their [illegible]; or they [dressed?] in respectable black silk and [blurry?] in the cleaning [corner?]. The grandmother is obsolete. Today at forty a woman just discovers herself, and her abilities. Mrs. Fredrick S. Goodwin has made almost a life study of thi[faded] thing, and sums in up concisely: "For the mother type of woman, purhaps the best work is the teaching of [blurry] for nature is a cruel mother. For the rich woman there are practical philanthropies; for the poor woman who has never had a career her [blurry] there is the college course. While for the light minded woman there is a career of social entertaining or the [adoring?] of a baby—That would sober her!" -----------------------o------------------------- [advertisement for Craig Rush Furniture] Strangers and friends all pay the same price if they buy from us.

CRISIS IN COTTON ---------o---------- Some Facts of Importance Bearing on the Situation

(From the Wall Street Journal.)

Cotton growers of the South and all interests related to them in a business way are facing a crisis on account of Europe's inability to take our surplus cottong of from 6,000,000 to 9,- 000,000 bales. If the European war had broken out in the sping, the exchange would probably have been much reduced automatically. If the surplus crop of 1914 can be taken care of otherwise, for a year or so, cotton growers can adjust themselves by diversifying crops so as to [one?] dawn the yield be probably one-half or two thirds of the average production. But for the present they have a product on their hands worth from $3,000,000 to $4,000,000, to [faded] which they are in dire need of help.

Various expedients have been suggested as a means of meeting this situation. Whatever is done must be done quick, but need not be done all at once. The first problem is to take care of about 300,000 bales of cotton nap to [Sepulveda?] [illegible] later during October. [illegible] [illegible line] [illegible line] in all by the end of November would go [illegible] towards preventing prices from slumping. The holding of [1?,-] 000,000 bales of coatton at [faded] a rate would require $22,000,000 capital. On this the owners or trustees could probably borrow $180,000,000.

A second suggestion is to develop the consuming capacity of domesticable, which are now capable of taking about 6,000,000 bales. By the special promotion of [faded] markets under the suspension of the European supply of cotton goods are [faded] might easily enlarge their cloth and yarn production for Latin-American as well as African or Asiatic wares. An expansion of 50 per cent in consumption would enable the home mills with over 1,000,000 spindles to take 9,000,000 bales. That would in itself be a substantial relief provided they could sell the goods.

The domestic market could otherwise develop a larger damand [illegible] ordinary conditions of business. There are no large stores of cotton goods in this country, and the European war is likely to prevent imports. The whole demand for cotton [faded] would then fall on the [faded].

The war has intercepted jute imports, the staple material on which Southern mills have depended regularly on the [illegible]. The [faded] mills at Memphis [faded [faded line] [faded line]

out of cotton instead of jute wrapping bales. At five yards a $15,000,000 bales of cotton would 75,000,000 yards of cloth for this [sin-] gle new item of demand alone.

The policy of the Southern grower[s if] Europe fails to take its share of cotton, would be immediately to [add-] dress themselves to diversifi[cation] such an extent as to cut the crop down to less than 10,000,00[0], that is, one-third below the a ly neccesity requirements to ke[ep the] world's spindles going.

The Piedmont publishes all the alledged war nows that is sent it, but advises its readers not to believe more than a tenth of it. Never in the world's history has such censorship been shown. Not a thing can get out of Europe yet [blurry] the government of the triple [blurry] do not want to get out. Germany and Austria cannot be heard from. Great battles may have been fought, while the world remains in ignorance of them. Newspaper correspondents evidently are manufacturing "news" and some of them are doing it very clumsily. Powers of invention run out when there is nothing to help them along. When no news comes from Europe, New York papers that get out several war extras a day fill them up with rot, evidently written in theor offices and labeled as cablegrams from Europe.

Here are some headlines from a New York World of relevent date:

"Extra! Extra!Extra!—Six German Battleships Sunk—France Whips the Kaiser's Army—Entire Corps of [illegible] lans Mowed Down by French Machine Guns—Paris Delirious With Joy Over First Victory."

In the Franco-Prussian war, hostilities started with a skirmish success of the French at Saarbrucken on Aug. 2. The New York World Aug. 4, [1870?], contained among other headlines, the following:

"The Fight at Saarbrucken—Napoleon's Account of the Storming of the Heights—His Dispatch to Eugenie—Half of the Town Destroyed— The [Mitrailleurs?] at Work—[Moral?] Effect of the First French Victory— More Fighting—Reported Storming of Weissenburg by the French Bazaine's Corps—Engaged-King William Assumes Command of His Army —Position of the Prussians—The Whole of Europe a Vast Camp— England Mistrusted Everywhere— Negotiations to Keep Open the Ports of Hamburg and Bremen, etc., etc., etc."

Some of the dispatches published in The World of Aug. 14, 1870, we as follows:

Three Thousand Prisoners Captured. Paris, August 3—The division of the French army under General Bataille, captured the town of Saarbrucken and took three thousand Prussion prisoners.

The Battle of Saarbrucken. London, August 3—Noon—The following details of the affair at Saarbrucken has been received here:

"The fight began at 11 o'clock yesterday forenoon. The French [passed?] the frontier in force. The Prussians were driven from their strong position by the sharp artillery fire of the French. The latter remained masters of the position, which they won without serious loss. The Emperor and Prince Imperial witnessed the conflict and return to Metz to dinner.

London, August 3.—Saarbrucken was taken by the French this morning. The loss was slight on both sides.

Half of the Town Destroyed. [cut off]

[article continues on column 2]

ing account of Sarrbrucken affair:

Metz, August 2—The French troops passed the frontier at 11 o'clock. They instantly encountered the Prussians, strongly posted on the heights commanding Saarbrucken which were carried by a few battalions. The capture of the town instantly followed, the artillery compelling the Prussians to evacuate it in great haste. Cornoral Froussard with one division defeated three divisions of the enemy. Buildings in Saarbrucken caught fire from the French artillary and half of the town was destroyed. The [miruilleurs?] were used for the first time and are reported to have worked wonders.

Napoleon's Dispatch to Eugenie.

The Emperor, on his return to Metz, after the battle, sent the following telegraphic dispatch to the Empress:

Louis has received his baptism of fire. He was admirably cool, and little impressed. A division of Froussard's command carried the heights overlooking the Saar. The Prussians made a brief resistance. Louis and I were in front where the bullets fell about us. Louis keeps a ball he picked up. The soldiers wept at his tranquility. We lost an officer and ten men. Napoleon.

The City of Metz was illuminated last night in honor of the victory. After the retreat of the Prussians the French did not occupy the place. The Empress with her nieces went this morning to the Chapel of Notre Dame des Victoires to offer prayers of thanksgiving for the safety and success of the Emperor and Prince Imperial.

The Victory Important.

Paris, August 3—The [blurry] claims that the victory at Saarbruck was one of great importance. The Emperor wished to gain possession of Saarbrucken because it commands they valley of the Saar and the railway to Treves. The latter cannot now be of any service to the enemy. ---------o---------- Do not those dispatches of 44 years ago read very much like those of today. What were the facts 44 years ago. Then the garrison of Saarbrucken consisted of two battallions, of infantry and one squadron of cavalry, an outpost guard. In order to control their weakness, they paraded in different combinations of uniforms, even borrowing those of the local fire department. This device decived the French, who [blurry] many days while the German army concentrated. The Little Saarbruken garrison held not well when fighting commenced and then withdrew. If all the population of Saarbrucken were counted they would not have made the two thousand prisoners General Bataille reported he captured.

Germans won the battles of Spichern and Worth just a few days later —real battles that are recorded in history.

As to the reporting storming of Weissenberg, the only inaccuracy in the World was that it was taken by Germans, not French.

On Sept. 3, 1870, the New York papers had big headlines announcing "Great French Victory and [illegible]" and "McMahon effects juncture with Bizaine." Of couse, history records that the Germans captured Emperor Natpoleon, McMahon and over one hundred thousand French soldiers at Bedard. While that battle was hard fought, another German army had Bizaine safely [rejoiced?] in Metz which he later surrendered an army of [illegible] soldiers. The French surrendered at Sedan on Sept. 2, 1870, while the New York papers on Sept. 5, 1870, reported it as a French victory.

In the light of the above, The Piedmont feels that it can safely advise its readers to pay little or no faith to such "news" as the [illegible] is allowing to leak out. --------------------o---------------------- AS TO IRELAND

The traditional attitude of Irishmen toward "perditious [Albion?] hate, but we imagine [illegible] feeling stranger in Amerian Irishmen than in those who have slaved at home because those in this county either left Ireland, or are descendents of those who left Ireland because of intolerable conditions created in the Emerald Isle by England's ruthless rule. However, since the days when Gladstone took up the cause of home rule, England's treatment of Catholic Ireland has steadily improved and it is probably true, as John Redmond proclaims, that Ireland is [blurry] behind England in the present war, though all hatred of England in Ireland is not cleared and may spring into a blaze if the war brings out an opportunity for realization of Ireland's centuries long dream of independence. While adoption of a home rule policy by the English liberals was simply to give England's miserly power in the imperial parliament through a coalition with the Irish members, yet the better treament of Ireland that resulted therefrom will probably serve England well in the present emergency. Had Napoleon Bonaparte ever been able to land an army in Ireland, it would have gotten a hearty welcome and tens of thousands of recuits. A [cut off]

[column 3]

stroyed this. There is no such danger in the present war.

As indicative of the old Irish spirit, which probably still burns in many breasts in this country, we call attention to the fact that the Irish volunteers of New York, in a meeting in Celtic park last Sunday, condemned Great Britain, denounced John Redmond and wished God speed to the Kaiser.

In their resolutions, they pray for German success.

"Because we see among its secondary but inevitable consequences the freedom of Ireland, Poland, Finland, India and Egypt and the destruction of the British Empire, which holds in political bondage and industrial stagnation so many millions of the world's people for the benefit of England alone."

Other parts of the resolution they adopted were as follows:

"We know that the majority of the Irish people throughout the world would welcome landing a German army in Ireland as their liberators and we fervently pray that the fortune of war may bring such an event about, or that the destruction of the British navy may enable Irishmen themselves to accomplish the freedom of their country.

"But in victory or defeat our sympathy and good wishes go with the German army, navy and people in this war and we await only the opportunity and the means of taking military part in it and striking an effective blow for the complete liberty of Ireland."

Commenting upon these resolutions, the Augusta Chronicle, a paper which has been decidedly pro-Irish for many years say:

"This is the position of the Irish Supremists, whose watchword is and has been for years 'England's difficulties are Ireland's opportunity'. Their dream is absolute separation and an Irish republic."

If the unexpected should happen and disintegration of the English empire be the result of the present titanic struggle in Europe, the world may see Ireland an independent member of the family of nations. --------------------o---------------------- MALIGNED.

Those Northern papers which delight in picturing the German soldiers as Vandals and barbarians but expose their own ignorance. A Charleston German, angered by the wilful and ignorant misrepresentation of the people of his Fatherland, writes:

"The German soldiers are no barbarians. They are not only kind hearted and generous, but they are also the best disciplined soldiers in all the world. Indeed, the foremost cities of German militarism are abhorence of barbarism. Even in the midst of a treacherous enemy's country, they have always paid for [victuals?] they could have taken by force. They fight men, as such men are their enemies, but German chivalry has never yet stopped to fight women or devestate property without the absolute necessity for such destruction. Unlike Sherman's army of infamous marauders, who fell like human vultures upon a defenseless section of our Southland, it is well to [recall?] at this time that the possession of Paris in 1871 by German forces was characterized by no deeds of wanton destruction or depredation upon the enemy's country."

If some of those editors would con[faded] historic instead of their preferred imaginations they might not make themselves so ridiculous. Suppose they read the history of Sherman's march to the sea and even [faded] with the history of Van Moltke's march to Paris. --------------------o---------------------- BACK FIRE.

Not so many years ago, what are now prosperous Western states were great prairies. When the grass on these prairies died under the summer's sun or the advances of winter, a [blurry] once started went sweeping over them with the speed of a galloping horse. Hundreds of the [prairies?] seeing a fire sweeping toward them would promptly start a fire where they were and then provide a place of escape. There is reason to believe their policy was initiated on the present European war by at least two members of the triple [blurry]. One phase of this question is discussed their by the Memphis Commercial Appeal:

"When the Austrian ultimatum was delivered at Belgrade, Russia was in the throes of a strike compatible in extent to revolution. The murdering elements had burst into flame, as ehy have done so often before in Russia. In a nation that rallies to the colors the flower of all male inhabitants by forced draft the value of a foreign war to prevent domestic revolution is obvious. In addition, in all Europe Russia sympathy for the Slavs in the Balkans is real. The Czar could not have deserted the Servians with nurturing the spirit of discontent already prevelant. He might in other circumstances have adquiesed when in Austria's design to reach south, for the Russion treasury is plethoric, nor has the country had time to recuper[cut off]

[column 4]

lose by the cataclysm, and it has strengthened its hold appreciably at home. There may have been avidity for peace in Paris and London, but there was none in St. Petersburg."

There probably was no "avidity for peace" in London. The home rule question had reached the point where the ruling party in Protestant England had to crush the Protestant Ulster or break faith with Catholic Ireland. The rioting in connection with Nationalist gun-running in Ireland created a dangerous situation. If the ministry broke faith with the Nationalists, they would lose their Irish support in Parliament; if they kept faith, Protestant England would have rebelled against coercion of Protestant Ulster. There seemed no way of escape without impalement upon one or the other horn of the dillemna. In either event, the Asquith ministry was [dooped?]. The war gave a chance to start a prairie backfire. The situation in Ireland immediately became calm in the face of national danger and the war—if successful— will be popular in England, as it will crush the growing competition of Germany, which England has been unable to meet. That such may have been the motives of the Asquith ministry is entirely possible and such motives would be in general keeping with the history of English foreign policy. --------------------o---------------------- FICKLE FRANCE.

France went into her last war with Germany a monarchy and came out a republic. She goes into this war a republic and there is no telling what her form of government will be at the end of the war. The style d'government in France has changed a great many times in the 138 years that these United States have been a free and independent republic. Either success or failure for France in this war is liable to change her back into a monarchy, though failure would be most likely to have that result. There is no inconsiderable element in France and would take advantage of a crisis to execute a coup. When a government in France fails the custom there is not to seek to reform the government but to change its form as if a mere change of form could rectify evils. The weakness of France in the present context is the lack of a strong central authority, the making of appointments because of popularity of the populace or political pull and lack of [fixity?] in the French chancelor. If she had no allies in this struggle its outcome would not be doubt. --------------------o---------------------- Getting out of the Philippines will do more to assure peace to the United States that all the peace treaties Bryan can negotiate if he lived to be as old as Methuselah and stayed at the hub as secretary of state the balance of his life. If war come with Japan, it will be over these [merged?] islands and not because of anti-alien laws by California or any other state. --------------------o---------------------- It is not remarkable that the Belgian fortresses did not surrender on first attack, especially to an advance guard without heavy siege guns. The forts are built to withstand long sieges with the best field artillery that can be brought into play. Cannon in fortifications can be very much larger than field areas. Remember how long Fort Sumter held out. --------------------o---------------------- Atlanta always claims everything. A dispatch from that city alleges that "there's no policies so hot as that of Georgia." We would gladly award the [palm?] in [Crackerdom?], but truth compels us to say Georgia politics compares in heat with the South Carolina brand as an expiring spark in a volcano at full blast. --------------------o---------------------- The announcement that to meet the falling off of import duties caused by the war, the tax on whiskey is to be increased will make the bibulous agree with Sherman more strongly than ever. --------------------o---------------------- Senator Smith is lucky. Here comes the European war and centers everybody's attention on cotton—and cotton is his specialty. --------------------o---------------------- Was the appearance of the armies of army [worse?] in the fields of this country a prophecy of appearance of armies in the fields of Europe? --------------------o---------------------- Georgia has no luck. "Col." Tom Felder, who was marooned in Europe by war, has escaped and is coming home. --------------------o---------------------- Those Americans coming from Germany through Amsterdam to Rotterdam probably think they are having a ——hard time getting home. --------------------o---------------------- [Blease's?] friends at Chesterfield gave him an umbrella. Was that a hint to get out of the wet? --------------------o---------------------- Have you answered the fellow who asked you to tell him what the war is about? --------------------o---------------------- South Carolina's biennial two-ring travelling circus is about ready to close. --------------------o---------------------- Even if the United States are [cut off]

A Round Trip. The attorney for a great railroad company in a Kentucky town was ex[blurry] a skinny 16 year-old negro boy who had sued for injuries ostensibly incurred in a collision on the highway, relates The Saturday Evening Post.

"You say," he asked, "that when this street car hit that wagon you were riding on the front seat of the wagon?"

"Dat's what is sed," answered the little negro.

"And you say the force of the blow knocked you up in the air?"

"Yes, suh, way up in the air."

"Well, how long did you stay up there?" demanded the attorney.

"No longer than it tuk me to git down," answered the truthful complainent promptly.—Knoxville Journal and Tribune. ----------o---------- No Prayer for Congress. Representative Foss, of Ohio, told the house of representatives why congress opens the meetings each day with prayer, relates the Philadelphia Record. He says.

" 'A constituent of mine was in the gallery a few days ago with his young son. They watched the speaker rap for order and heard the chaplain lead a prayer. The son asked the father why congress needed a clergyman and the prayer.

"Congress does not need prayers, my son,' the father replied, 'but the chaplain looks at congress and then prays as hard as he can for the country. ' " ----------o---------- The Usual Way. A South Side matron recently mixed some hair tonic from a receipt which called for a considerable proportion of alcohol.

After the first application the young woman said to her husband:

"I am afraid some of our friends might detect the odor of alcohol and think it comes from my breath."

"You can remedy that."

Vest Pocket Essay By GEORGE FITCH Author of "At Good Old [Siwash"?] Copyrighted by George Matthew Adams


A LIFEBOAT is a small, uncomfortable craft which is all that is left to travel in after the [3?]00, 000,000 floating hotel has demonstrated the fallability of man.

Lifeboats are stoutly built and can float in the fiercest storm, but they are not popular as a means of transportation. After fifty people have been crowded into a 30-foot lifeboat, it is no more comforable than a street car in the rush hour. Skillful seamen can row a lifeboat several hundred miles to shore if necessary, but in the hands of a few dining room stewards who do not know which end of the oar to grab while rowing, the lifeboat is at best a perilous and uncertain affair.

For many years steamships have carried lifeboats hung from the upper decks and these boats have added greatly to the peace of mind of nervous passengers who have put on life preservers every time a wave hit [blurry]- [blurry] portholes. In fact the lifeboat was generally considered to be a very acceptable substitute for a steamship in case the latter sank until almost two years ago when it was suddenly demonstrated in a most distressing manner that the best lifeboat in the world is of no use whatsoever on the passengers who can't crowd into it.

Since that time ocean steamers have provided enough lifeboats to hold all of their passengers and crew. But as yet very few improvements have been made in the manner of launching a lifeboat in a heavy sea. Up to the present the bottom-side-up method has been used very extensiveley and has proven very satisfactory to those directors of navigation companies who have remained steadfastly at

[headline and article span columns 6-7,middle section] [photo of William Brady] HEALTH TALKS William Brady, M.D. Loose Cartilage in the Knee

[column 6. middle section]

BASEBALL and football players, miners who work in a crouching position, [blurry] clumsy about detraining on the move, and sometimes swollen, trying to turn a somersault, jumping off a street car, experience a sudden twist of the knee joint, followed by locking, so that it is impossible to straighten out the leg.

There is great pain, often enough to produce [blurry]. Some [faded] begins to pull and haul at the injured joint, [blurry] do reduce the [blurry]- cation. Suddently there is a snap, and the knee regins its full power of movement again.

[Treating?] Things Cause Trouble. But this is only the beginning of the trouble. At once, there is more or less swelling and [blurry], which will disappear after a few days of rest. Later on, however, the patient is pretty likely to endure a occurrence of the accident under slight provocations, such as a sudden turning about on the street, or even turning over in bed. This time, and at many subsequent times, the patient will probably succeed in overcoming the locking of the joint by wiggling the leg. Stepping on a car, stumbling off a curb, or even an effort to cross the legs while sitting in a chair may be enough to produce a locking, which will cause great embarassment to the patient. One patient suffered the accident while in a swimming pool; [bent?] her leg upon a spiked fence and was seriously injured in an effort to save herself from falling when her knee locked.

Prolonged rest and careful support of the kneee after the initial injury is the best preventative measure against loose cartilage in the knee, and when the first injury has healed, leaving a portion of the cartilage movable and so subject to pinching between the [bevels?] of the bones, then the wearing of some form of plastic bandage or brace for the knee is advisable.

In the case of a laborer or an athlete who is anxious to continue at his regular occupation, and even in the case of a woman who has suffered much trouble from loose cartilage, an operation may be done. A few years ago surgeons disliked the idea of opening the knee joint—the largest joint in the body—but today, under a aseptic technique, the operation is quite safe. The loose cartilage may either be stitched in place or, what is more customery, removed. This gives complete relief.

GEN. T. M. LOGAN DIED IN NEW YORK TUESDAY ---------o---------- MANY GREENVILLE SOLDIERS SERVED UNDER HIM IN CIVIL WAR. ---------o---------- YOUNGEST CONFEDERATE BRIGADIER GENERAL ---------o---------- Born in Charleston—Served First in Washington Light Infantry. Then in Hampton Legion—After War Located in Richmond—Helped Found Southern Railways Predecessor, the Old Richmond & Danville ---------o---------- Yesterday's New York Times contained the following:

Thomas Muldrop Logan, a Senator and former Brigadier General of the Confederate Army, died yesterday morning at his apartment, 90 Morningside Drive, from a combinaion of diseases in his 75th year. Sen. Logan suffered a nervous breakdown recently and the heat of the last few days aggravated his condition, and this, added to weakness resulting from his advanced age, caused his death.

The body was shipped to Richmond, Va., last night and was accompanied by his nephew, T. M. Logan of Englewood, N. J. The funeral is to be held in Richmond at 11 A. M. today.

Gen. Logan was born in Charleston, S. C. and was the son of Judge William Logan. He was graduated from the College of South Carolina in 1860, just previous to the outbreak of the civil war. Gen. Logan joined the Washington Light Infantry of Charleston and sured with the regiment at the siege of Fort Sumter, he became a Second Lieutenant in Company A of Hampton's Legion. He became a commanding Brigadier General in December 1863, at that time being the youngest Brigadier General in the Confederate Army.

Gen. Logan fought in many of the great battles of the war. He was at the first battle of Manassas and was wounded at the battle of Gaines Mill, near Richmond, in 1862. He commanded his company at the second battle of Manassas. On the morning that Gen. Grant crossed the Chickahominy, Gen. Logan was shot from his horse and seriously wounded while endeavoring to stop the Federal advance. Later Gen. Logan commanded Butler's brigade in Johnston's army until the surrender at Greensboro.

After the war and during the reconstruction period Ge. Logan studied law in Richmond, Va., for two years. Gen. Logan then became interested in the development of the South through the building of railroads. He formed a syndicate of Richmond and New York capitalists in 1878 and consolidated various small railroads into the system then known as the Richmond & Danville, and today called the Southern railway. Up to the time of his death Gen. Logan had large financial and railroad interests. He was president of the Gray Telegraph [blurry] company and spent much of his time in this city, although his home was in Howardsville, Va.

In 1879 Gen. Logan was chairman of the Democratic executive committee of Virginia and in 1896 was chairman of the Gold democratic party of his state. In 1865 he married Kate V. Cox of Chesterfield county, Va., who survives him. He is also survived by a son, James H. Logan of Howardsville, Va., and three daughters, Mrs. H. D. Drune of New Orleans, Mrs. Douglas Forsyth of Virginia, and Mrs. [Alnery?] Morrill of Cincinnati.

The above is of special interest in Greenville, because a number of soldiers from this county served under Logan in the Confederate army. --------------------o---------------------- [advertisement of Craig Bush Furniture Co.]

William C. Irby, who is also a [blurry] today, directed a bitter attack against his fellow townsman, R. A. Cooper. He said in part:

"As the question has been asked why Mr. Cooper and I are in the race and I wish to answer. Consider the fact that a great daily paper owned and controlled by one of the biggest and most powerful bankers in this state is so afraid the people will not know for whom to vote that it carries his name in big type with instructions to vote for him at the top of its editorial page. If he is not with them why are the big financial terests supporting him. The people may at times be disappointed in their man, but the financial interst never. I am fighting these same interests." --------------------o---------------------- [headline and article, spans columns 3-4, top section]

FIRST SESSION OF FARMERS' INSTITUTE A GREAT SUCCESS ---------o---------- Many Enthusiastic Speeches Were Made at the Meeting This Morning. The Event is One of the Greatest Educational Features That the Farmers of This Ever Been Able to Attend.

About seventy-five enthusiastic and progressive farmers assembled at the Chamber of Commerce rooms to hear addresses by the leading agricultural experts and demonstrators of the state. Dr. Stewart, chairman of the institute, after a few preliminary words, introduced Dr. J. B. Bruce of this city.

Dr. Bruce made a short but stirring speech in regard to the work of the Agricultural Committee of the Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Bruce told that a great deal of good had been accomplished in the last year and prospects for the future were extremely bright. Dr. Bruce said that the lower section of the county had advanced ahead of the upper section on account of the Fairview Stock Show associations and that the committee was making plans to interest the people of the upper section so that they would also have something of this kind in order to form afriendly rivalry between the sections. The Doctor said that this had not as yet been carried through but that he believed that it would be in course of a few months.

After Dr. Bruce had finished Dr. Stewart introduced Mr. W. R. Ellis, commonly known as "Bacteria Bill", who is demonstrating in the central part of the state. Mr. Ellis said that he was in the field for better agriculture in this state and in order to get better agriculture it is necessary to improve the soil. Mr. Ellis said that most any farmer could raise a crop if there was plenty of rain and the soil he had to use was in good condition but that it took a scientific farmer to farm through a drought or to raise a good crop on poor land.

Mr. Ellis said that people of the state were leaving the farms and securing positions in the city as they thought that the land of the state was worn out and would no longer produce crops that would pay them enough to work on the farms. Mr. Ellis said that the land might be in a bad contition but what was wanted was the men to get to work and restore the fertility to this land that

[column 4, top section]

they believe worn out and his mission on this campaign was to tell the farmers how to do this. Mr. Ellis emphasized the use of cover crops and stated that cover crops were fivefold in their results. First: they hold the rolling land from being washed away during violent storms. Second: they keep the plant food in the land. Third: they can be used for winter grazing. Fourth; they add organic matter to the soil and fifth: They can be harvested in the spring months.

Mr. Ellis went on to say that the [blurry] with the farmers was that they wanted results at once and would not wait on developments. Mr. Ellis then told the different ways to innoculate seed for cover crops and described the different cover crops and show these could be best [used?].

Mr. Ellis ended his speech by explaining the value of deep seed beds and showed on a chart the results of some experiments with seed beds of three, six, nine and twelve inch depth. His speech was greatly applauded by the audience.

Prof H. W. Barr of Clemson college followed Mr. Ellis and spoke on the diseases of the cotton. He explained the boll [rat?] and showed how the disease worked in the plants and how it got into the seed and ground. He also spoke on cotton shedding and told the amount of water required to raise one pound of seed cotton on different kinds of land. He spoke of the smaller diseases and germs of the cotton plant and several questions were asked him in regard to red spider. Mr. Barr explained the best methods of getting red of the spider.

After Prof. Barr's address, Mrs. Smith tomato club [faded] for Union [blurry] made a stirring speech on the standardization and quality of the goods of tomato clubs. Miss Smith explained that their label stood for and asked that every farmer in the state buy the canned goods put up by these girls in the clubs many of whom are working to pay their way through college. Mr. Willmon, agent for this county, also made a brief but enthusiastic address following Miss Smith.

The events of the morning session were greatly enjoyed by all and the event is considered one of the greatest educational benefits the farmers of Greenville county have had the opportunith of attending in some time.

of his speech, Senator Smith received a cane from his "Farmer Friends of Marion County" who know "he has kept the faith."

Governor Blease prefaced his letter which he received, he said, by "special" delivery:

"County Democratic Committee, Newberry County, Newberry, S. C., August 10th, 1914.

"To Coleman Livingston Blease, Columbia, S. C.

"Sir: You are hereby cited to appear before the county democratic committee of Newberry county, Saturday, August 15th instant, at the court house in Newberry, to show cause why your name shall not be stricken from the roll of the club in ward No. 6, Newberry, S. C. (Signed) Jos. L. [Keitt?] "County Chairman."

He urged the Blease men to stay at the polls on election day, for the ["Anta?"] would try to steal the [blurry] on. The chief executive said that two years ago, when some of his followers came to him telling that an effort was being made to purchase their votes, he told them [ot?] go and get the money and vote for him. They did, he said, and told him about it. Throughout his bitter speech Governor Blease would iterate and reiterate: "I didn't have much business [blurry] here; I just came to make you [blurry], who voted against a Confederate soldier, sick."

When a voter asked him what Polock and Jennings are running for, the governor replied: "you, my friend, should not mention to [blurry] [faded]ames in decent company, I have never noticed them and do not come on the same platform with them. When it comes to putting myself on a plane with blatherskites pouring out black[blurry], to get office, I never notice them."

At the conclusion of his speech the governor was given two bouquets.

The crowd today, which numbered approximately 2,000 persons, was extremely orderly and there was little effort at heckling. From the way the governor talked the crowd was beyond doubt an anti-Blease audience. --------------------o---------------------- WANTED BOTH BLUE AND GRAY PALLBEARERS ---------o---------- Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 13—Lucien Perry Hills, the beloved poet at Atlanta, who died several days ago, let most of his rather large estate to start a fund for the public arts building in Atlanta, as developed when his will was made public today.

NOT MUCH FEAR OF SHORTAGE IN POTASH SUPPLY ---------o---------- Fertilizer Factories Admit Depends to a Certain Extent as Length of War—Seems to be Plenty in the Country at Present to Suffice for Present Needs—Likelihood of its Coming by Way of Italy. ---------o---------- There is a national expectation on the part of the people of this country that the fertilizer business will suffer a setback on account of the war raging in Europe. The world's supply of potash, one of the necessities of fertilizer manufacturing comes from the domains of the Kaisers. The Germans are for the present practically cut off from all intercourse with the outside world. The United States has been trying to develop potash mines in Tennessee, but these have never amounted to much.

Greenville has a local factory of the Virginia-Carolina Chemical Co. The plant has not felt any shortage of potash at the present and will probably not experience any. Of course the supply depends on the length of the war. If it continues long enough it may be that a stringency may be felt. There is nothing to prevent Germany from shipping her potash across Austria-Hungary into the central county of Italy and there disposing of it. It would then be shipped from Italy to the United States. As long as Italy remains neutral such a state of affairs could easily exist and the farmers of the country and manufacturers of fertilizers [would?] never fear any shortage of the precious commodity.

It seems for the reasons mentioned above and the fact that there are 5,000 or 6,000 tons of the precious [commody?] held, by a dealer in Baltimore that a shortage of potash need not be expected or feared. --------------------o---------------------- LIST OF CASES TRIED IN RECORDER'S COURT ---------o---------- David Farris who was tried again today for violation of the dispensary ordinance was found guilty and received a fine of $75.
