Should Receive Attention Now
There is perhaps at this time n
subject of greater importance to th
people of Union County than lat
gardens, the food crops that provid
for our wants during the early fal
and winter months at small expens
for labor and seeds, and the sures
possible defense against the high cos
of living. Prices on all food are ad
vancing and we cannot rely upon buy
ing from the more progressive peo
pie outside, even though we have th<
price. All excess food is schedule)
to go to the soldiers. Realization o
jthe truth of the above and inspiratioi
I make the remainder a matter of de

The late summer and feed seed sup
ply should be secured from a reliabl
dealer, and preferably from bulk
such seeds usually being higher ii
germinating properties and less ex

Among the vegetables which may b<
planted now, are carrots, salsify
beets, English peas, potatoes ,onioi

etc., while during the period from Au

may still be planted, an^additionally
rape, mustard, kale, spinach, lettuce
etc. Cuttings taken now from th<
large tomato plants and placed ii

Every home should provide a coh

NOTICE TO VOTERS N
or iiiunii nnmiTii
ur UNIUN Mil
1 wish to call attention to all pros- ?
pective voters that they must register
during the months of July and August,
whether they have heretofore
registered or not. Our Constitution
requires registration every ten years, ^
and all persons registered before the
first day of July, 1918, must register
again during July or August, or they
will lose their right to vote. It is
therefore very important that you j"
register now, unless you have regis- i
tered since the first day of July. The'
books will he onen every day (except
Sundays) during July and August, at
the Court House. ^
I wish further to call attention to
the Democratic voters of Union Coun- ?
ty to the fact that they must enroll on ^
their respective Club Rolls by the last
Tuesday in July, which is the last day ^
of enrollment, the club books shall
close on that day. This is important. 05
In order to vote in the August Pri- m
xnary such enrollment in absolutely a<
necessary. Failure to enroll will prevent
you from voting. Art entirely1
new enrollment this is required. See^
to it that you enroll at once. The time I
is short?the 30th of this month being -n
the last day. The places and names
of enrolling committees are being ^
published in the paper.

All merchants must report monthly
iiles of sugar to J. 11. Ix?e, Spartanurg,
S. C., and secure from him perlits
to purchase additional sugar,
ales must be confined to two pounds

a certificate that this sugar is to

again call atention to the fact that
ie food administration condemns the
ving of barbecues as tending greatto
the waste of meats. They trust
lat none of our citizens will be so
npatriotie as to continue this cusim,
but if some should be found who
re willing to ignore the wish of the
Dvernment they appeal to the pa iotism
of the citizens as a whole to
op it by refusing to patronize the
ime. This applies to private citizen,
lice-holder, and candidate alike.
