The members of historic old
Gilgal church are up und doing.
They have succeeded in raising
sufficient funds to repaint and
otherwise improve their house of
worship. A corps of painters left
Edgefield on Monday to begin
work. May this church continue
to flori8h under (he leadership of
its beloved pastor, Rev. P. P.
Mr. James A. Dozier, who now
occupies first place in the shoe
department of the mammoth store
of J. B. White, having been chosen
buyer and manager, visited his
sisters, Mrs. H. A. Smith and Miss
Alleen Dozier on Sunday last.
This promotiou of Mr. Dozier is
no surprise to his friends, for his
pleasing manner, attractive per
sonality and unusual mental en
dowments could not lead him
otherwise than in paths of success.
Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Taylor be
lieve in beautifying their home
pud makiug all of the surround
ings attractive. Would that more
home owners in Edgefield were of
the same bent bf mind. Mrs.
Taylor is a great lover of flowers
and devotes much time to their
growth. Mr. Taylor is causing
'he entire house to lay aside its
dull winter robe and is having it
painted in a very attractive and
beautiful color that is more in
keeping with the season.
If you would be relieved of that
tired feeling take Penn's Bitters.

Would that they could be induced
to build a summer home here. The
red mud and bad roads of winter
preclude the possibility of Edge
field's becoming a winter resort,
but there is uo reason why many
families should not come to reside
among us' in summer, when we
have as beautiful drives asean be

would throw wide ber doors to

On Fri dav afternoon the town
council will elect two marshals to
serve for the ensuing year. We
understand that quite .a number
of applications have been filed,
and we trust that these gentleman
into whose keeping has been com
mitted the administration of the
municipal goveruroeLt will act
cautiously in this matter, weigh
ing carefully the applications that
are before them. A? much depende
upon the officers whose duty it ie
to be on the alert and bring to
justice thone who violate the
town's ordinances ne upon the or
dinances themselves. These offi
cers are in fact the real custodi
ans of the town in the matter of
enforcement of the laws. Unless
they report the offenders aud se
cure the necessary evidence to
convict, the evil doers cannot be
punished. We do not know who
the applicants for thefe positions
are but we urge you, gentlemeu-of
the town couucil, to weigh the
applicants carefully and discard
those who are found wanting.

will be missed most will be in the
home whose inmates he loved go
