Sweei potatoes have been selling
readily on this market at one dol
lat per bushel. Besides shipping
several hundred bushels last week
to other markets, Mr. Mark Toney
sent two wagons loaded with po
tatoes to Edgefield that were very
quickly disposed of. Even small,
pig-tail, "stringy" potatoes were
eagerly sought after. This should
encourage farmeis to grow more
of them. Like cotton, there is al
ways a steady demand for pota
toes at good prices.
Mr. C. A. Long, who, whether
it be in mid-winter or mid-sum
mer, early spricg or late autumn,
alway? has something to sell, was
.supplying the Edgefield house
wives with teuder salads, mustard,

The erroneous announcement
to the effect that the salary of the
coroner of this county hi-d been
raised to $700 by tho legislature
caused anathemas to be s' wered
upon the members of the E afield
delegation to the general assembly
by some tax payers. As a matter
of fact there was no increase in
the coroner's salary. He will re
ceive only $125 per annum as
heretofore. The salaries of magis
trates ware raised $25; the su
pervisor's salary increased from
$600 to $700, and that of superin
tendent of education from $500 to

forest fastnesses to multiply and
recruit their rankB, promising to
return again after a twelvemonth.
In view of this promise hostilities
have ceased, and young America
bas lain down his rocks, sling shot,

been without resulta. Sinners
were turned from the error of

reconsecrate themselves. The en

The members of the Woman's
Mission society of our Baptist
church have iuvited Rev. J. Hart
well Edwards, the pastor of the
Baptist church at Ridge Spring,
to preach the anniversary sermon
before the society on Sunday next.
We trust that Rev. Mr. Edwards,
who is a deeply pious, scholarly
gentleman, will be greeted by a
large congregation at eleven
o'clock on Sunday morning. A
collection-a self-denial offering
will be taken at this service for
the cause of home missions. For
some years it has been the custom
of the ladies to put forth a spe
cial effort at this season for the
spreading of the gospel in the

The B. Y.P. U. Convention.
The state convention of the
Baptist Young People's Union
will be held at the Citadel Square
church, Charleston, beginning the
4th of April aud lasting through
the 7th. These aunual gatherings
are always thoroughly eujoyed- by
all who attend them. Besides the
great benefit derived from the
gospel meetings of the convention,
at which very able sermons and
addreeses are delivered by the
foremost men of the denomination
the social feature is exceedingly
pleasant. An opportunity is afford
ed-for the Christian young people
to come together from every sec
tion of the state and mingle to
gether iu social intercourse. The
Convention will doubtlessly be
largely atteuded, for it does not
require much persuasion to induce
one to visit the quaint old city of
Charleston at this season of the
year. The puople of South Caroli
na's metropolis know how to en
tertain their friends and guasts
royally. The Edgefield union wi!'

Elsewhere in this issue we pub

two banks that are tho pride ot
Edgefield, the bulwarks of our
town and vicinity from a finan
cial and commercial standpoint.
These instituticns have stood by
tho farmers in their struggle to
maintain the price of cotton. The
combined loans of the banks
amount to more tbau four hun
dred thousand dollars, which
shows that they turned a deaf
ear to no one wbo offered banka
ble paper, borrowing mouey to
lend to the farmers when their
funds become exhausted. The
handsome dividends that are paid
to the stockholders, thu increasing
surplus funds, the steady growth
jin tbe volume of their business
show that the Edgefield banks are
cautiously, conservatively, dis
creetly managed, and upon their
splendid showing the officers are
to' be congratulated.

Fat is of great account
to a baby ; that is why
babies are fat. If your
bab}^ is scrawny, Scott's
Emulsion is what he
wants. The healthy baby
stores as fat what it does
not need immediately for
bone and muscle. Fat
babies are happy ; they do
not cry ; they are rich ;
their fat is laid up for
time of need. They are
happy because they are
comfortable. The fat sur
rounds their little nerves
and cushions them. When
they are scrawny those
nerves are hurt at every
ungentle touch. They
delight in Scott's Emul
