. Edgefield, 8. C.
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 12, 1902.
A cordial invitation is ex
tended to our subscribers and
friends to call at our office
while attending court. We
shall be glad to see them.
The first week in Decem
ber the Methodist conference
and the State Baptist conven
tion will meet in Newberry
and Greenville, respectively.
Owing to the congested
dockets and the increasing
demand for extra terms of
court in many of the counties
the question of increasing the
number of circuits and judges
is being agitated in all parts
of the State.
It seems that Booker T.
Washington, of Alabama, has
greater pulling power with
President Roosevelt in the
matter of South Carolina ap
pointments than has John G.
Capers. The former present
ed the claims of one Cru rn,
colored, for the Charleston
collectorship while the .latter
urged the appointment of one
Talbot, white. The Presi
dent has made known his in

The Census office has an
nounced the result of the first
month's ginnery canvass of
the 626 special agents. Every
one of the 29,314 cotton gins
in the country was visited.
The number of bales ginned
from the growth of 1902 up
to and including Orfober 18th
was 5,925,872, of which 601,
431 were ginned iii South
Carolina. The government
estimate is that 60 per cent.

estimate as correct this year's

THE ELKS CARNIVAL.
Instead of the fail attraction
heretofore known as Merry
makers' week, Augusta will
have a solid week of fun and
frolic furnished by the Elks'
Carnival. The Elks have
planned, and carefully arrang
ed every detail of the attrac-|
tion and it gives promise of
surpassing' anything of ?he
kind ever held before. They
have secured many free shows
all of which are instructive
and cannot be objected to on
moral grounds. Several very
large bands will provide sweet
music for the open air con
The busiest of men, feeling |
the need of diversion, will lay
aside business and attend at!
least for one day. The gates
of the city will be thrown
wide open on Monday morn
ing next and all are invited to
enter and participate in the
pleasures of the occasion.
Edgefield will send a large
crowd. Remember the date,

Salt pork is a famous old
fashioned remedy for con
sumption. "Eat plenty of
pork," was the advice to the
consumptive 50 and 100
Salt pork is good if a man
can stomach it. The idea
behind it is that fat is the
food the consumptive needs
ern method of feeding fat to
the consumptive. Pork is too
rough for sensitive stomachs.
Scott's Emulsion is the most
refined of fats, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feeding him fat in this
way, which is often the only
way, is half the battle, but
Scott's Emulsion does more
than that. There is some
thing about the combination
of cod liver oil and hypophos
phites in Scott's Emulsion
that puts new life into the
weak parts and has a special
action on the diseased lungs.
A sample will be
sent free upon request.
Be sure that this pltture in
thc form of a label is on thc
wrapper of every bottle of
Emulsion you buy.
