Hot Supper by the Baptist Ladles.
The Baptist Parsonage being very se
riously ont of repair, the ladies of that
?congregation have determined upon giv
ing a Hot Supper, in the hope of raising
a fund sufficient to have certain necessa
ry work done upon the Mid building.
And indeed it is so absolutely essential
that the Parsonage should at once be put
in order, lest the leaks and breaks
and defects should require a much
larger sum hereafter, that the ladies de
set ve all praise and all encouragement
for their promptitude in the matter. In
deed if it were not for tho women of the
laud-as we have often before remarked
-there would now be few churches or
parsonages standing in the South. And
when weak women so bravely do what
ought, by right, to be done by strong
men, it behooves tho said strong men to
at least stand by them-to the amount of
their personal presence and a few paltry
cents. This is the plain truth, and there
is no getting round P, let men talk as
egotistically ss they may-and as is their
The ladies will give their Supper on
Tuesday night of next week, October
5th, in Masonic Hall. And there is to be
nf? rattling nor lottery work. Beyond
the cheap allurements of such little in
stitutions as a Post Office, a Fish Pond,
and a Fortune Teller, there will be no
invitation to undue outlay. The ladies
will charge 50 cents admission fee ; and
for this, each one of their patrons will
get a very handsome supper both of sub
stantials ami daihUfls, in fact a supper of
everything on the tables. Nothing but
Ice Cream wiil be extra. And now the
public know exactly what to expect
And if they do not patronize these la
dies very generously indeed, the more
shame to then". And as regards the
quality and quantify of ibo feast - il
those requirement^ bo anything io peor
pie-and we suppose they are to a great
many-no one in Edgefield need be told
that they will be far above am%beyond
all cavil. Be present, therefore, on Tues
day evening, and consider it a privilege
to contribute your mite to st? gi
Robinson's Circus at John-ton.
Persons from our town who happened
at Johnston on Saturday last, thought
that old John Robinson's Circus bail ar
rived at that place; and they at once
made a rush for what they took to be I he
ticket wagons-the crowd around being
so largo and so dense that their \ ?sion
could not possibly pierce through But
what was their surprise to find that in
stead of old John Robinson's Circus, ?
was simply young L. B. Whatley's Store j
-where you can lind everything in the
world-and everything at a bargain.
Yes, Mr. Whalley is drawing a custom
equal to Old John Robinson's. Ho lins
Dry Coods, and Clothing, and Notions,
ami Bo-ds, and Shoes, and Hats, and
