The question that is uppermost
in the minds of the Edgefield
people at this juncture is, who will
be the successor of the lamont3dj
Eon. G. L. Toole has aunou need
himself a candidate for the state
senate from Aiken county to nuc-|
oeed the late Senator Johnson.
His election, which, owing to his
popularity in Aiken county, is
highly probable, WOP ld be another
blow to the state dispensary, for
he opposes that institution very
strenuouply. Senator Johnson was j
- an able champion of the dispensa
..ryjn the senate. .
The newspapers are having
quite a tit of fuu over cer'aiu lit

call in polite society-have been

Edgefield and Greenville seem
ta have exchanged places. The for
mer has had her day in the matter j
of appropriating the lion's share
of tho best things on the political
pie counter, and now the latter's
turu has.como. Gieenville has four
state officers: Governor, State
Superintendent of Education, Ad
jutant General, and a Railroad
Xbe crop in the region from
which cotton is brought to the
Edgefield. market is either very
much later than last year or the
yield is much les3. Probably both,
but more probable the letter is
the cause for the very light re
ceipts up to this date, as compared
"with the fame period laBt year. Up
to the night of September the 23rd
of last year thp public cotton
weigher at Edge?eld had weighed
; 1915 bales, for a like period this
- year only 803' bales have been
weighed. These fgures speak for

- Committee remarked to the Ad
vertiser's representative on Satur
. day that there are two things that
. ' the people of Edgefield county are
^'. especially noted for or delight in
doing-fighting and voting. Well,
I if that be true, thoy will not lack
for opportunity this year to gratify
their voting proclivities. Two eluc
tions have already been held with
in the last thirty days, another
has been ordered, and still one or
two more may become necessary
all within sixty days.
The marvels of wireless telegra

The Greenville News has satis-1
factorily explained why certain
"ladies" were arrested in that
fair city for riding "man fashion."
Our contemporary says : "The two j
females who were arrested in
Greenville were not ladies. They
were anything else. They were ar
arrested not solely for the reason
that they were violating any un
written provincial law regulating
the style of riding on horseback,
but on account of the disorderly
manner in which they conducted
themselves in the gaze of the pub
lic". Let iurther" criticism of
Greenville be withheld. Tfie proper
place for women who are "any
thing else" but ladies is behind
the bars, and the eily authorities
should be commended for having
the. courage to put ?them there.
The writer .asked a prominent
business man in Augusta a few
days ago how the people of that
city looked upon the recently en-j
acted anti-bucket shop law. He j
replied that a great majority
heartily approved of the law, but,
said he, wbeu the law goes into j
effect some of the shops will tfpen
for business across the river on tht
Carolina sid?. Can we afford foi j
South Carolina to thus become a
party to the evasion of a Georgi 8
law? If it is good for Georgia to j
bay8 bucket-shops driven out,]
would it not also be good for South
Carolina? When our next legisla
ture convenes, cab it afford todo
less iu this matter than the Geor
gia legislature did? It was Hon.
James ?. Boykin, a worthy son of
Edgefield, who introduced and se
cured the passage of this law in
Georgia, now will not some mem
ber of the Edgefield delegation to
the general assembly iutroduce
and secure the passage of a similar
law for South Caroliua?
Closing Session of The Woman's
' Christian Temperance Union.
1 "We have learned that if pro
hibition does not always prohibit,
neither does civilization always
civilize, nor education educate,
nor christianity christianize.''
Frances E. Willard.
Only a partial report of the
Woman's Christian Temp?rance
Union was given in lasf; week's
issue. There were so many good
things paid and don?, that euthu
siam became epidemic, and the
cause of prohibition has never
been more stimulated than by the.
exercises ol last week in the Metho
One good Methodist brother, au
honored member of the local Wo
man's Christian Temperance Un
ion said, "I thought wo would
havo a good tim? but bad no idea
of such a time as this."
A very intelligent young
brother said of Mrs. Burger,
"She did me more good in the ad
drees of Monday evening than all
the sermons I have listened to in
a year." One of the ministers
said, I felt as if all the meu ought
to slip off and cot talk or preach
any until people had somewhat
forgotten the eloquence of Mrs
Burger, and had dropped back to
the ordinary. It was to this degree
that Mrs. Burger's ch?rms. capti
vated the people of Edgefield.
The ministers of our town are
great and good, and equal to all
occasions. The local Woman's
Christian Temp?rance Uuiou will
never be able to express all they
feel in reference to the kinduess
and sympathy and good fellow
ship which tbey manifested to
their distinguished guest.
Tuesday afternoon from 2:30 to
to 4 o'clock, the business of the
convention was resumed. The
time and place of tho uext meet
ing was left to the decision of the
executive board, with invitations
from Manning, Newberry, Chap?n,
St. Georges, Edg? field and John
Mrs. Harris of Crawfordsville,
Ga.j made a pertinent and sug
gestive talk on Sabbath obser
vance, as the superintendent of
that department of the Georgia
Woman's Christian Temperance
Mrs. Burger at 4 o'clock began
her address ou "Excuses". "And
they all straightway began to make
excuse*" This address was for the
most part a convincing argument
for-prohibition, not founded upon
sentiment, or personal opinion,
but upon facts."It is said that
knowledge of one's subject is the
secret of eloqueuce. While this is
true of Mrs. Burger, it is not all
the secret. Her gifts are legion.
She admonished the church of
Christ to banish the liquor traffic,
the great obstacle in the pathway
to progress in spiritual things.
She gave some striking facts in
regard to the state of Maine. In
South Carolina a large majority of
the newspapers invite the public
to partake of intoxicants iu their
advertising columns. In the pro
hibition state of Maine there are
only seven newspapers which will
advertise whiskey. It looks as if
sentiment against the sale of
liquors, 'is become more crystal
ized in Maine than in South Caro
lina. There are numbers of men
and women in the United States
who refuse to subscribe for mag
azines or newspapers which carry
whiskey advertisements. All horior
to them. Our instruction as white
ribbonors is-to repudiate all ad
vertisers of spirituous liquors.
Mrs. Burger stated that she bad
recently visited the state prison of
Maine, and there found in this
much berated prohibition state
only 192 prisoners. How does that
compare with the dispensary state
of South Carolina? Mrs. Burger
confessed her Jack of knowledge
of the dispensary but avowed that
while prohibition does not always
prohibit, neither does high/license
i or the dispensary prohibit. The
state of Maine, she said, had more
comfortable homes and more com
forts in the homes, than those
found in any state of the union,
although fifty years ago the poor
est state and with the least natu

ladies participated, as follows:

The County Board of Education
held tho examination for teachers
in the court house on Friday last,
the 21st inst. It is a significant aud
deplorable fact that there was not
a white male applicant. The Ad
vertiser does not discount or dis
parase the lady teachers. God for

filling it very satisfactorily, very
But mon are needed for teachers
as well as women and. uufortunate
lv, their number is rapidly di
miuisbiug. They are abaudouing
the profession of teaching for other
lines of work, that are more remu
nerative. God bless the women !
But for their work and influence
in the horne, in the school, and in
the churches, what would become
of the country? It would go to the
bow-wows in a trice.
Besides the twelve colored
teachers-some males and some
females-who came before the
board for certificates, the follow
