WEDNESDAY, NOV. 1, 1905.
?... ,Q.conee county should be accord
' ' ed the first place on the honor roll,
having voled out the dispensary by
a majority of about 10 to 1.
The sales at thr, dispensary on
$? ^Saturday last amounted to $360.
Think of how much better it would
have been bad this umountbeeu
expended for dry goods, shoos,
' 'clothing and groceries. A great
many homes would have been
New Orleans will eoon repair
the damage to he r population that
was made by yellow fever. In
that city during o ne day last week
thirty-six births were officially re
.-, corded. Edgefield seemed to be
in the lead a fpw morths ago but
* we-are now forced to surre nder the
palm to New Orleans.
The bank at Saluda, notwith
^..v tandil g th e fad that it is Iwelve
milts ii?m a railroad, is reaping
? its.sJ^fe of prosperity. At the
^secona annual' meeting of the
stockholders a few days ago an
eight por cent dividend waB de
clared and a balance added to the
surplus fund. This epeaks well for
the manage men I; -
Pjesid(ot Roosevelt's tour c;
v?he scuth has enabled him to ge\
clcEer to the heartB of the south-]
ern people than anything else tbail
he bas said or done since he he4
came the nation's chief executives
Now that they know and under^
stand him better the people ol
this section will not be so prone
to question the Presideui's mo
t ives and criticise his official actf j
. What is the matter with thej
erstwhile, fair city of Augusta ??
She seems to be making fcu unen
viable reputation for herself inj
the matter of granting divorces.
In the E?perior court thirty di
vorce cases were acted upon in ajj
single day last week. We wonderj
-.if any of these were Carolin!
couples who went to Georgia to bi
restored to a state ot "singlej
blessedness", so called.
mee the severe freeze ol
the early?Siftg^ies has lhere beera
so large a crop ofTP?Juji??i 'umjgej
11? is now to be found upon the
Trees.- The yield of 1905 is esti
mated to be about 1,250,000 boxes.
A large portion of the crop has
already been sold on the trees on
a basis of $1 per box. That the
price of the golden fruit will this
year be within the reach of the
; newspaper man is a pleasing
To-day being November the 1st j
-theman who delights in a day's
sport in tho woods can shoulder
bis gun and go after the featheied
tribe without violating the law.
Tho merchants who are heavily
stocked with "shot and shell," as
well as the gunners, delight that
the huntiug season has arrived
The old paitridgo that has been
leathered by many amateur sports
men will at the crack of the gun !
betake himself to the thickest of
the forest for safety.
How many teachers throughout
the county are going to observe
c Arbor Day, Friday the 3rd day of |
November ? State Superintendent
of Education O. B. Marti u is en
deavoring to get the schools to ob
serve the day properly by planting)
trees upon the grounds and in
otbur public places. With very
little trouble or expense the bleak
and barreu grounds that surround
many of the Behool houses in this
.county could be rendered very at
tractive. Trees planted now would
within a few short, years afford
v dense shade, making more com
fortable the play ground for the
children. We hope to hoar that a
goodly number of those who teach
in the public school of the county
have observed Arbor Day.
.The season for the appearance
of the abominable carnival com
panies is upon us. Dates have
already been made by thom in
some of the small towns. Should
an advance agent of any of these
companies make application for a
license to theEdgefield town coun
cil we hope that it will be prompt
ly refused. Ve;y few small
towns that allow them to come
within their gates one time ever
give them permission again. These J
attrac'ions are extremely demora
lizing, from a business standpoint j
as well as otherwise. Large crowds
are drawn to a town by them but
-the money is speut on the cheap
shows and get-rich-quick schemes
instead of for household necessi
ties. Should application for
license be made the couueii cught
fijst to obtain an expression from
the citizens before grauting it.
The wide-awake, progressive
farmer who has gotten out of tho
)ld rut and has adopted modern,
scientific methods instead, is now
breaking deep and subsoiling his
lands. Having harvested the crops
of 1905 the preparation for 1906
should now begin by providiug a
store-house for the winter's rains,
in ord<r that the tender plants
may draw upon this reserve fund
during the drought of next Bum
mer. "Plough deep while slug
gards sleep and you'll make plenty
of cern to soiland to keep."
The damage suit industry is
assuming collossal proportions.
Probably two-thirds of the cases
that are tried in the civil courts
uow-a-days are damage suits of
one form or another. Some of
them unquestionably are cases that
are not founded upon justice. By
ordering a verdict for the defen
dant in an unjust suit for damages,
Judge BJ awley of the United State s
court set and example a few days
ago" that should not pass unheed
ed by some of the lower tribunals.
A station agent of the Southern
Railway brought suit to recover
damagf'S for injuries sustained by
being knocked from the track by
the pilot of au ebgine. It having
been clearly proven that the plain
tiff carelessly walked across the
track while a train was approach
ing, the judged ruled that he was
guilty of contributory negligence,
and ordered the jury to find a
verdict for the defendant com
