Bankers Could Find.
Old King Solomon was a wise bird.
He distributed a lot of mighty good
** But he is dead.
> You are alive. You will have to
make your own decisions and determine
your own course oC action and
your own future. It will not do you a
3bK of srood to try to communicate
^ h Sol and hare him so Ire your

. If you got his ear, you probably
Tould not take Ms adrice.
You will have to acquire your wisdom
as Sol acquired his, by gaining a
I broad view-point and taking advantage
of your own experience and that
vi others. Solomon was a mason before
he was a king and a miner as
well, 'so Ms view-point probably would
t be much different from that of
v-.se workers of the present day.
You may be sure that the high cost

? ^rchasing power of a aheksl, minted
from the gold of Ophtr, fluctuated Just
i as does the dollar minted at PMladelphla.
But Solomon fc&ew that thrift and
saving, the stimulation of production
.nzfil the elimination of waste woultt
solve those problems Just as the wise

up a lot of coir, through safe and conservative
investment just as wise

the future in Liberty Bonds, Treasury

an/one ever took any of that coin

He left one bit of advice, the wisdom

Tell? How High Cost of Living Prot>
Jems May Be Solved by Every
Man and Woman.
President Nicholas Murray Butler,
of Columbia University, in a recent
discussion of the high living cost*
"Punishing profiteers is & good
thing, but it won't reduce the cost of
living. If we had all their hoarded
goods it would do little good.
"Only the operation of inexorable
econcxmc laws can bring us back to
tolerable conditions. The remedy is
to save, to practice public economy
and private thrift We must save and
invest in productive industry. Borrowing
for non-productive reasons
In the opinion of the best economist
in the United States the peoples'
greatest weapon against high
prices is the government's Thrift
campaign. Every family should have
a budget Just aa ev***y successful
I business has a bua?et The ura- '
i thing on that budget should be tb*

War Savings Stamps bring 4
per cent interest, compounded every

the belt by investing in United States
securities. The dollar you save today
may be worth twice as much five
years from now.

LIMTTTXG FACTORS IX
Handicaps Can be Overcome. Says j
Clemeon College, November 3.?
Three of the limiting factors at the
present time in pork production in
South Carolina, says V. W. Lewis. Extension
Animal Husbandman, in
discussing the present decided trend
toward a great hog industry, are:
1. Fences and equipment for
handling. Too few of cur farmers
realize the importance of fencing
their farms in order that crops
grown for livestock may be harvested
by the animal instead of by
high priced labor.
2. Feeds grown. Too many of our
farmers in the past have depended
upon corn as the sole ration in producing
hogs. South Carolina can
produce an abundance of forage crops.
3. Disease. The larger part of

Mrs- Lawter Says She Feels Fine
in Many Ways and Praises
"Tanlac is the best medicine I ever
took for stomach troubles, nervousness
and palpitation of the heart. I
sure can praise and recommend it,"
declared Mrs. H. E. Lawter, of 116
Williams street, Spartanburg-, S. C.,
in a statement she gave in endorsement
of Tanlac February 1, 1917.
"I suffered from indigestion, very
bad nervous troubles and palpitation
of the heart," continued Mrs. Lawter.
"I could hardly sleep, but would roll
and toss for hours, and my nerves
were so bad I was kept miserable almost
all the time. I could not eat
anything- hardly, and what I did eat
felt like bricks on my stomach and I
had a kind of choking feeling in my
chest after meals. My heart fluttered
a great deal, and this, I think, was
partly caused by the great quantity

better in every way. My nerves are

I used to be so nervous I dreaded to

I have not been bothered with

I took Tanlac.
