What Is It?
Monday is the day for the regu
lar meeting of thc County Medical
Association. We trust that the
eighteen physicians o.: the county
will put their heads together and
agree upon a name for that hither
to nameless or multi-named dis
ease that has infected a section of
the county north of EJgefield.
Nobody seems very much con
cerned about it," there being more
curiosity exhibited as to what- it
is rather than fear of direful re
sults from it. Everybody, however,
desires to know what the disease
is, whence it cometh and whither
it goeth. Tru'- it hath been given
many names, some of them peing
"bull etch." elephant itch, eanip
itch, chicken pox, an eruption,
small pox and so on. ad infinitum.
Mr Frank A. Tompkins.
When one's vital organs ara
being gradually consumed by a
a lingering, incurable malady and
each succeeding day accentuates
the suffering, making lite indeed
a burden, the end-though it sev
ers ties than which there are none
cu earth dearer-brings with it a
sigh of relief. Although the separa
tion from friend or loved oue may
cause untold anguish of mind and
heart, yet there is a sweet satis
faction in knowing that their pain
racked form will suffer no more.
Thus it was with the long illness
and gradual death of Mr. F. A.
Tompkins who breathed his last at
the home-ol his sister-in-law, Mrs.
Eva. Lewis, during the earl}' hours
of Sunday morning as loved ones
watched Ly his bedside. Many
persons were grieved by the in
telligence of the death of Frank
Tom pk i na, for everybody who
knew him esteemed b i IL. as a
friend. His genial and amiable
disposition, bis frank and affable
manner, his constant and un
selfish devotion to his friends, his
warm-hearted and generous nature
drew men to him, forming bonds
of friendships that naught could

is survived by a devoted wife, three

Still the wonder grows why more 1
people in the vicinity of Edgefield
Io not grow fruit, especially
peaches, for the market. lu the
?asteru part af tho county, around
Johnston, fruit is very profitably
^rown, and in the western or i
southwestern section, around
Clark's Hill, hundreds of dollars
are annually realized from all
varieties of fruit, and tomatoes.
The success that Mr. S. B. Mays
has had with growing aud shipping
peaches is proof positive that there
is money in fruit growing right
here in the central portion of the
county. Mr. Mays has realized
this year $90 net from ono acre in
peaches. Somo fuiy that there is
greut risk in having tho crop kill
ed by the cold of early t-pring.
This cnn be successfully answer
ed by tho experience ol" Mr. Mays
who has had only one failure
during fifteen'or more year?.

The' past phenomenal success of

Mr. David Strothnr, who speaks

So great was the throng that not
