WEDNESDAY, OCT. 1, 1902 g
The city of Augusta has
granted 83 licenses to retailers
The Democrats have it on
to the Republicans. The latter
have no Speaker while the
former still have Bryan
noted for his much speaking.
The Elks of Augusta are
making great preparations for
the fair to be given by them
this fall. It gives promise of
surpassing any thing held
Tho Chamber of Commerce has
not planted any new industry yet,
but it has attracted scores upon
seoras of inquiries as to Augusta.
More people are asking about Au
gusta now than at any time in
twenty years .-Augusta Chronicle.
The Business League is to
Edgefield what the Chamber
of Commerce is to Augusta.
The League will not only ad
vertise and boom our town
but will, we confidently be
lieve, be the means of estab
lishing several new enterpris
At a meeting of the Busi
ness League, held on Mon
day evening last, a committee
of ten representative citizens
was appointed to meet with
the citizens of Ropers this af
ternoon to discuss the propos
ed electric road from Augus
ta. The result of the confer
ence will be reported at a
called meeting of the League
to be held in the court
house Friday evening at 7:3o
A great majority of our peo
ple are anxious for the road
to be constructed to Edge
field, and are willing to offer
every reasonable inducement
to the owners of the* Aiken
Aiken county lawlessness
is being well advertised. On
accounts of the numerous
hold-ups and assaults by ne
groes the county treasurer
states in his annual advertise
ment: "I do not think it
would be doing justice to my
self or the county to risk my
life and their money by travel
ing through the a country 'n
private conveyance as hereto
fore, so in the future I will
only go to such points as can
be reached by rail." We
would not be surprised to
read such an announcement
as the above from a county
treasurer of one of the states
of the far west, but we must
confess our surprise at such
an announcement coming
from a county bordering on
Edgefield. If the proper pun
ishment was meted out to
these highwaymen the cause
for such precaution on the
part of the county treasurer
would be removed. ?222

THE BRADFIELD REGULATOR CO.
. ATLANTA, QA. Q
When we are experiencing,
from a monetary standpoint^
seasons of plenty (?) in the
south, the north is passing
through a famine. At this sea
son heavy drafts are made
upon New York banks for
money to move the crop. This
demand upon Wall street
banks was greatly increased
a few days ago by the unusual
fluctuations on the stock ex
change which carried the rate
on call loans to 20 per cent.
Think of money being loaned
at 20 per cent on Wall street
where the prevailing rate is
from four to six per cent.
Vacation is ended. Ding
dong groes the school bell all
over the land. From the remote
corners of the rural districts
through the hamlets and vill
ages on to the densely popu
lated cities can be heard the
echoing and re-echoing of the
call to books and the study
hall. The boys and girls have
bidden their pleasures a long
farewell. The beaming, smil
ing countenance has given
place to one of dejection. The
young ladies and young men
having reached the age at
which they duly realize the
grave responsibilities that a
wait them later in life take
more seriously to the task.
Having put away childish
things-aims and ideals-they
?seize and improve every op
portunity of intellectual de
That parents realize more
keenly than ever the impor
tance of educating their chil
dren is shown by the large en
rollment of the country
schools, graded schools and
colleges. Parents have awak
ened to the fact that no great
er legacy than that of a good
education can be left to their
children. Greater by far than
silver and gold, vast estates or
cattle upon a thousand hills.
One that moths nor rust can
corrupt nor thieves break
through and steal. May this
tidal wave of en th us ia m and
interest in the education of the
youth of the land continue, for
on this hangs the peace and
prosperity of our country.
NORTH NOT AN ELDORADO
OR A CANAAN.
Occurrences that have tran
spired frequently within the
last few years prove two
things beyor.d peradventure.
First, that the much boasted
friendship of the northern peo
ple for the negro does not ex
ist in fact. Second, that the
southern white people are the
only true friends of the color
ed race. The northerner who
is not on the spot and who
knows nothing of the real
condition of the negro delights
in moralizing and philosoph
izing upon the race question.
There are a few who con
tribute from their abundance
toward the improvement of
the race, but these are the ex
ceptions and not the rule.
Many northerners clamor
for social equality and politi
cal recognition for the negro
They preach this to others but
what do they practice A recent
dispatch from Illinois states
that 54 negro families, some
of them owning improved
farms, have been compelled
to sacrifice their property and
leave. There has been many

different sections of the south ;

Eight cents a pound is
what a young woman paid for
twelve pounds of flesh.
She was thin and weak and
paid one dollar for a bottle of
Scott's Emulsion, and by tak- |
ing regular doses had gained
twelve pounds in weight before
the bottle was finished.
Eight cents a pound is j
cheap for such valuable ma-j

less, some get nothing for
their money. You get your ]
money's worth when you buy
