was mailed on Wednesday and
by Saturday night 18 sets of tires

Elsewhere in thi? issue appears
a call for a mass meeting to be

fact that two counties have by
, large majorities voted out whiskey
and two or three other counties
. have on foot movements'looking
to the voting ont of the dispensary,
some of our representative citizens
. think that Edgefield should act in
the matter also. So it is for the
purpose of testing the sentiment
of the people upon the question of
"dispensary" or "no dispensary"
that the meeting for the first Mon
day in July has been called. There

A Day at Collier.
EDGEFIELD, S. C., i
June 17th, 1905. [
DEAR ADVERTISER :
This has been a day spent at
Collier to be remembered. The
capital of Collier township is
Mathis' Store, situated on the
Martin Town*road about 5 miles
north of Republican church, about
5 miles east of Red Oak Grove
church, about 5 miieB south of
Antioch church, and about 8 or 10
miles weBt of Horn's Croek church,
situated there in a thickly settled
community in the midst of the
Millers, Mathiues, Craftons. Ham
monds, Adamses, McKies, Princes,
Whalleys Edmunds, MimseB,
Parkmans, Cturseyg; Stephens^?,
and otheis equally hospitable. It
is one. among the mo6t favored
spots in all Edgefield.
Some years ago the beloved and
lammted Dr. Robt. McKie, seeing
the inconvenience that tho par
ents and children of this com
munity had in attending Sunday
school at the above named
churches, organized "P e a c e
Haven" Sunday school, at Collier.
A Sunday school building was
erected and, if I mistake not, was
dedicated by Dr. L. R. Gwaltney
and others. Since its organization
the school has prospered. About
a year ago the building was struck
by lightning and destroyed by
fire. The good people of the com
munity came together as a ningle
man and rebuilt it.
The occasion to-day was Child
ren's Day under the auspices of
Peace Haven Suuday School, The
programme which cons;sted of
songs and recitations was gotten
up, and the^ouug maidens misses,
youths'and boys were trained, by
Mrs. Tom Miller aud Mrs. Wflf
Whatley. I wish I had the pro
gramme before me so that I could
give it together with the names otj
all those who took part in the exf|
ercises, I can only iiay that ni
programme were ever gotten ul
more befitting sucli an occasion?
and carried out more perfectly bjfl
