Our Boys "Over There" Enjoy Toasted Cigarettes
Through the patriotism of the citizens of this country
thousands of smoke kits are being distributed to American soldiers in France.
Authorities agree that men in the trenches need cigarettes almost as much
as food and munitions.
Doctors, nurses, and commanding officers all join
in the demand which has awakened in this country a great movement to keep
our boys supplied with smokes.
Millions of the famous LUCKY STRIKE Cigarettes
are "going over" all the time. There's something about the idea of
teh toasted cigarette that appeals to the men who spend their time in cold
wet trenches and billets.
Then, too, the real Kentucky Burley tobacco of
the LUCKY STRIKE cigarette gives them the solid satisfaction of a pipe,
with a lot less trouble. Adv.
"How is your nephew doing Sally?"
"He's pretty bad, miss, and yesterday they done took him
to the horse-pital to perform a autopsy on him."

Denounces Tillman and Blease
Laurens, April 24 -- N. B. Dial, who is giving considerable
time to promoting his candidacy for the United States senate by making
visits over the State, particularly, the Piedmont section, today gave out
the following statement on the situation. Following the formal announcement
recently made by Former Governor Blease:
"I am convinced that the voters thoroughly concur
in my view that among other reasons, Tillman is too old and feeble to be
reelected, and that Blease by his attitude toward the war and the national
administration has practically eliminated himself from the race."
"The winning of this war is the vital issue of
the day, dwarfing every other subject into insignificance.:
"We read that ex-Governor Blease in a recent speech
at Greenville stated that he was originally opposed to the war. As
we recall only about four senators voted against war measures, hence if
Mr. Blease had been in the senate he would have been an unwilling support
of the policies of government. It is generally known that he was
opposed to the nomination of Mr. Wilson for president and during his term
of office was continually at logger-heads with the war department.
he even went so far at to disband the military companies of our State.
Furthermore he was so antagonistic that he objected to the Georgia troops
passing through South Carolina.
"No one knows better than the ex-Governor that
his offer to raise a regiment would be declined. That was mere twaddle.
he had often seen where a similar offer by ex-President Roosevelt had been
"While we Americans are all peace loving people,
and while our president did everything humanly possible, consistent with
national honor to keep us out of the struggle, it is inconceivable that
any true American citizen of broad vision can say he was opposed to this
"Without going into all the details of its causes,
the barbarous manner in which the Germans have conducted it, our
aims and objects, anyone who is in sympathy with right, democracy, humanity,
would have cast his lot as we have done and any who take a contrary view
certainly are selfish and narrow interpreters of the duties of one nation
"It would be a grave mistake to send a man to
the senate who can not attend vigorously upon his duties and very unfortunate
to send a man who is not heart and soul with the president in supporting
every measure necessary during this crisis."
"The objects for which we fight will be attained;
we and our allies will win this war, and the time is not far distant when
liberty loving people of all lands will bless the day where the United
States unsheathed her sword.".
