Edgefield, ?. C
WEDNESDAY, OCT, 14,1903.
Notwithstanding tjve who
sale stealing that has been
practiced in the Postoffice De
partment, the total" cash re
ceipts for the year recently
ended passed, for the first |
time, the billion-dollar mark.
Edgefield is not alone in the
matter of being unable to
meet all obligations when due.
?tis stated that Richland coun
ty has no money with which
to pay the expenses of the
Tillman trial and having bor
rowed all that is allowed under
the law cannot borrow any
. more this year.
The exhibits, such as stock,
. poultry and farm produce,
. that are usually seen at the
State Fair will be supplement
ed this yearby the state ex
hibit at the Charleston exposi
tion. This will be a drawing
card, as many who could not
attend the Exposition can. go
to the fair. ..- . '

The law abiding citizens of

over the pre valance of law

cause. A petition is being
circulated asking the state

A STRONG ENDORSEMENT.
We were greatly pleased to
receive on Saturday -last the
subjoined letter from one who
has been running an advertise
ment with us at intervals dur
ing the past year. It is a
very strong endorsement of
the ADVERTISER ?^ an adverti
sing medium. The follow
ing is a verbatim copy of the
etter with address omitted :
. Mr. J. L. Mims,
Dear Sir:-We herewith enclose
you copy.of advertisement we had
running in your paper last mouth,
and wish it continued for four is
sues, to occupy same space, and
We have received more etquiriesj
a? a result of advertising in your
paper, than any other three papers f
in which wo advertise.
Yours Ve;y Sincerely,
A certain thrifty farmer
being asked how he achieved
success on so small a farm,
replied. " I make it a rule,
when I go to market, to bring!
home more money than I
carried away. In other
words, Lendeavor to sell in
value, more than I buy, and to
grow everything on the farm
for my own use that the land
will produce." Thib would
be a.good rule for every farm-]
er, whether large or small.!
However, in order aiwaj's'toI
have produce that can be con
verted into cash requires a
diversity of crops. Cotton
brings in money during the
fall season and stock, grain,
etc., should be marketed the

The e\ent of tb*? week, was the
'Husband's banquet" given by "New
Century CT??b" on Friday evening last.
Thursday afternoon"a committee of
bright, happy-women assembled in
the Stevens and'Kthredge hall, and
began the transformation.. Qu'te a
number of buggiesand carnages,paper,
trash and boxex looked pandemonium
at a casual glance; however, in a very
shorf while the vehicles occupied one
! third; of the space and were hidden
from view by along crimson curtain.
This left quite a large space separated
bj pillars. Beyond the-pillan was a
table arranged for sixty two guests.
On Friday af tero oon 1 be work proper
began, a?;d rapidlj aud in perfect har
mony the decorating.and arranging
continued until cri?s ol satisfied ad
miration could be heard from ah.
Brilliant lamps from' abt.ve show-da
loaded table. Crystal glasses spark
ling with pure wafer glistened a?; sixt}
two plat? s piled with ham. turkey, po
tato and chicken' salad, picKlc, bread
'and"beaten biscuit, while fruits and
'confections in abundance appeared it
various places. All of this was ni ad o
beautiful by pot plants.' 3,111 vas-s of
lovely-Howers. Four charming girls
were selected to serve ice oivam and
cake, and coffee. At the head of ther
stairs to the -right, was -arranged the
reception room. Art squares and
handsome rugs covered tho- ll?>or/
leather and velvet couches reseed
temptingly against the . v,all. The
: pilla? s-were covered with the club
colors and the spaces b tween were
filled with curta 123 and serpens.
Messrs. Stevens & Etlicredge's hand,
|,some b.iggy robes were thrown over
piled boxes giving Ibo appearance ot
tapestry-. A number ol' exquisitely
lovely palms added to '. thc"
home-like appearance. At eight o'clock
Friday evening the guests began to
(arrive and were ?*feoeived by a oommit
I tee, hats and wraps beingcarefullyar
.ranged in buggies aud carriages be
hind the curtain. The admiration ex
pressed, and amazement depicted ob
the countenances of the gentlemen at
the beautiful transformation amply
; repaid the ladie 5 for their trouble. At
tbe close of supper Mrs James While,
with an appropriate quoiarion follow
ing each, announced the leasts ana the
gentlempjt to respond' They were
