Edgefield, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, OCT. 14,1903.
Notwithstanding the whole-1
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.
It is 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 year; by 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.
Boys had better look/to their
laurels. One of the large tele
graph companies has as an
experiment discharged- its
messenger boj'S in Kansas
City'and employed girls in
stead Who would not rather
be handed a telegram _by a
sweet smiling girl than by a
boy with a cigarette in his
mouth puffing away like a lo
The law abiding citizens oi
Saluda have become alarmed
over the pre valance of law
lessness .throughout the county
and in casting about for the;
cause and a remedy, Jiave de
cided that liquor drinking:-|
the dispensary-is the chief
cause. A petition is bein?
circulated asking the- state
board of directors to abolish
the dispensary or close it in
definitely.; The action of the
board will be awaited with
th? keenest interest.
The trial of James H. Till- (
man, charged with the mur
der of N. G. Gonzales on Jan
nary 15th last, is nearing the
' end.. _ The very able argu
ment from both sides closed
yesterday afternoon and Judge
Gary will deliver the formal
charge to the jury this morn
ing. Then after due deliber
ation the twelve men who
have patiently listened to ev
ery detail of the case will ren
der a verdict or a mistrial
will be ordered. When it will

A STRONG ENDORSEMENT.
We were greatly pleased to
receive on Saturday -last the
subjoined letter from one who
has been running ah advertise
ment with us at intervals dur
ing the past year. ; It is a
very strong endorsement of
the ADVERTISER as an adverti
sing medium. The follow
ing is a verbatim co^y of the j
ett.er with addre:s omittei
I Mr? J. L. Hims,
Dear Sir:-We herewith enclose!
you copy.of advertisement we had
rnnniog in yoor paper last month,]
and wish it continued for four is
sues, to occupy same space, and
We have received more erquiries
as a result of advertising in your
paper, than any other three papers
in which we advertise.
Yours Veiy Sincerely,
A certain thrifty farmer
being asked how he achieved
success on so small a farm,
replied. " I make it a rule, 1
when I go to market, to bringf
home more money than II
carried away. In other
words, I endeavor to sell in
value, more than I buy, and to
grow everything on the farm
for my own use that the land
will produce." This would
be a^ood rule for ever}' farm-|
er, whether large or small.
However, in order always to'
have produce that can be con
verted into cash requires a
diversity of crops. Cotton
brings in money during thc
fall season and stock, grain,
etc., should be marketed the

The e\ent of tho week, was the
'Husband's banquet" given by "New
Century CTTIb" on Friday evening last.
Thursday afternoon a committee of
bright, happy women assembled in
the Stevens and ' Kthredge hall, and
began I he transformation. Qu'te a
number of buggies and carnages,paper,
trash and boxex looked pandemonium
at a casual glance; however, in a very
shuCx while the vehicles occupied one
third -of the sp%ce and were hidden
from view by along crimson curtain.
Phis left quite a large space separated
bj pillars. Beyond thc-pillan was a
table arranged for sixty two guests.
On Friday^lfferuoon the work proper
began, ai;d rapidly aud in perfect har
mony the decorating.and arranging
continued until cries oft satisfied ad
miration could be heard from ali.
Uri I li ?int lamps from abive show d a
loaded table. Crystal glasses spark
ling svith pure water glistened at sixtA
two platt s piled wilh ham. turkey, po
tato and chicken salad, pickle, bread
and beaten biscuit, while fruits and
confections in abundance app-arcd it
variousplac.es. All of this was made;
beautiful by pot plants, and vasisuf
lovely Howers. Four charming girls
were selected to serve ice or?-aiii and
cake, and coffee. At the bead of the
stairs to the ri^ln, was arranged Hie
reception room. Art squares mai
handsome rugs covered llii- ll.jur,
leather and velvet couches resred
temptingly against the -Rail. Tin
pilla's were covered with the oiub
colors and the ^paeos b tween were
lilied with curtinns and scrams.
Messrs. Stevens cfc Ethc-redge's hand
some b.iggy rc bes were thrown over
piled boxes giving the appearance ol
tapestry; A number ol* exquisitely
lovely palms added to -cl??
home-like appearance. At eight o'clock
Friday eveuxrg the guests began io
arrive aud were received by a commit
tee, hats and wraps being carefully ar
ranged in buggies and carriages be
hind the curtain. The admiration ex
pressed, and amazement depicted oh
the countenances of the gentlemen at
the beautiful transformation amply
repaid the ladies for their trouble. At
the close of supper Mrs James White,
with an appropriate quotarion follow
ing each,announced the coasts ana the
gentlemen to respond' They were
"yeomen's.Clubs," "The New Century
pleb," ^Husbands," ^Southern ?leti
and Women." These -were responded
to respectively by Bey. P. B. Grant,
Mr.'S. G. .Watson,Rev.Mr. Martin and
Mr. C. J;T'errell,all were good, wit and
humor abunding. Mrs. Lucia Latimer

this the guests were bidden a hear"

The Baptists of this place have call

Mr. Lanham is held by the con
gregation which he has serv;d so faith
fully for two years. Tho' the creeks
rise and submerge the bridges, and
tho'the roads become quagmires he is
ever true tb his appointmer'.--.
