claims to have discovered a
process whereby he can con

Before cotton has "done
half its do" the speculators
and manipulators are already
. predicting a 12,000,000 bale
crop. Granting thai such a
crop will be made, when we
consider the advance all along
the line of manufactured and
unmanufactured products the
farmers should receive ten
cents for every pound of it.
That was a singularly un
fortunate, and at the same
time fortunate, mix-up in
North Carolina last week. It
was a head-on collision of an
excnrsion train loaded with
colored people and a freight
loaded with watermelons.
Being HEAD-on the human
freight was uahnrt while thc
juicy melons were scattered
and battered, provoking many
a smile from ear to ear.
The farmers are feeling
good, the merchants are feel
ing good, the bankers are
feeling good, and the loafers,
too, are feeling good over the
prospect. There will be
something doing in Edgefield
this fall. It is quite probable
that a greater volume of bus
iness will be done in Edgefield
than for many, many years
Our town is on the eve of
a boom, an era of prosperity,
the like of which has never
been seen before in its histo
ry. This, too, not because
of the efforts of broad-mind
ed, r ide-awake, public-spir
ited men but in spite of their
indifference. Who could
measure the possibilities of
Edgefield's future were her
citizens to arouse from their
lethargy and put their shoul
ders to the wheel?
In many sections of the
cotton belt there are, besides
the usual causes, insects that
curtail the cotton crop. Tex
as usually has her boll weevil
and the farmers of Alabama
are now spraying to kill
worms before the worms
kill the cotton. About the
only thing that ever causes a
short crop in Carolina (Edge
field farmers excepted, of
course ) are drought and lazi
ness-lack of water and lack

Just as the county an

teachers have increased th
interest in the^ cause of edi

institutes caused the farmei

Canning factories in man}
towns over the state are run
ning full time and selling
their products of fruits anc
vegetables at prices that yield
profitable returns. Edgefield
could have one too if we had
just one citizen who had e
nough get-up-and-get about
him to undertake it. The
soil in this vicinity seems tc
be especially adapted to grow
ing tomatoes. Then why
thould they not be grown in
large quantities and canned
for the market? The writer
purchased several weeks
ago some tomatoes of a local
merchant that were canned, ii
we remember aright, in El
lenton, S. C. Why send
money to build up other towns
when it could be kept al
home? Tomatoes can be
canned here just as profitably
as they can at Ellenton. This
is not only true of the canning
industry, but of many others.
What about the crooked
ness and narrowness of the
street leading by the Baptist
church to the college grove?
It is nearly as crooked as is
the way of the man who is
overloaded with "fuss x"
and is almost as narrow as
some of Edgefield's public
spirited (?) men. Some
months ago something was
said of the council taking the
matter in hand and devising
ways and means of straight
ening and widening this
street which is so narrow in
places that two vehicles can
'scarcely pass each other.
Would not summer be the
best time to do this work so
the ground will become firm
before the heavy *rains of
winter? And the bridge a
cross the branch should be
widened. It is so narrow
that only sweethearts cross it
abreast. What say you, gen
tlemen of the city council?
