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.

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 rejected.  
  "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 war. 
  "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 to another." 
  "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.".
