Measles In Greenwood
Rev George W Davis sp:nt a
portion of last week in Greenwood,
with Mrs Davis and children. Mr?
Devis went up there before Xmas
"and while there the children have
been taking time about having
the measles, so Mrs Davis has
been nursing instead of enjoying
her visit. They have all bloomed
now, and will reiurn as soon as
it, is advisable to bring the chil
dren, It was unnecessary to leave
home to catch the measles-Edge
field is up-to-date and can fur
nish measles, mumps, whooping
cough, etc., on short notice.
Remember " the Park."
We do not believe in always
making- remarks, but we have
rema* ked several times about the
condition of "the park." Our rea
sons for doing so was that we folt
a pride in Edgefield. It would
make a mule laugh to know that
Edgefield called his hitching
ground a "park," Why the idea of
a park being used as a place for all
sorts of refuse-ashes, straw, pa
per, excelsior, etc. It is a disgrace
for the mouument, erected by the
good ladies in memory of thu Con
federate dead, to be surrounded by
filth and shaded by decayed trees.
If Edgefield has any pride for her
dear, old and far-famed town, let
it be known by having the barn
lot, knowu as "the park," cleaned
aud kept in a respectable condi
tion. Remember "tho pa k."
Handsome 1902 Calendars.
We have received a beautifi..
calendar of the New York Life In
surance company, presented by
tb>ir agents. Gaffney & Mims.
Messrs Gaffney and Mims have
.been Edgefield only a few months,
but by their pleasant mauner 'and
strictly business methods have
built up an enviable business and
madp. hosts of friends.
~^We all admire pretty girls and
pretty pictures, and need aLd ap
preciate calendars. Mr E J Nor
ris has given us two calendars, one
is from thc McCormick machine
vori ir.tl . \h picture, of a
L- u HS in her hand a pla
cird reading 'buy the McCormick
mower, and reaper," and of course
Mr Norris, the agent, is the one to
buy from. Remember this.

The members of the Edgefiela
Baptist church were greatly sur

resignation was presented to the
conference last Sunday mevning.
The resignation was as unex

Why should citizens of Edge
field patronize outsiders when they
can get the same high class of art
from their home photographer. It
is an undisputed fact that Pho
tographer Mims, who is a resident
of our town, can make just as up
to-date photographs as any man,
but some people had rather help
built, up a resident of Columbia
or elsewhere, than to build up old
Edgefield by patronizing home.

Bring your cotton to Edgefi? ld and
