WEDNESDAY. SEP. 26. 1906.
The question that is uppermost
?:r?> in'the miudB of the Edgefield
peopl? at this juncture is, who wilJ
i..:. . . be the successor of the lamontod
_ . Sheriff Ouzts?
? - , -
HOD. G. L. Toole has aunounced
himself a candidate for the state I
senate from Aiken county to uuc
ceed the late Senator Johnson.
- His electiob, which, owing to his
popularity . in Aiken county, ?B
highly probable, would be another
blow to the state dispensary, for
he oppose? thal institution very
strenuously. Seoator Johnson was
- _ an able champion of the dispeusa
ryjn the senate. x
The newspapers are haviog
quite a bit of fuu over cer ain lit

exist in large numbers in the

call iu polite society-have been j

Edgefield aod Greenville spem
ta have exchanged places. The for
mer has had ber day in the matter I
of appropriatiDg the lion's 6hare [
of-the best things ou the political
pie couuter, and now the latter's
turn haB^como. Gieenville has four |
state officers: Goveroor, State
Superintendent of Education, Ad
jutant General, and a Railroad
Xue crop in the region from
.which cottOD is brought to the
Edgefield. market is either very
much later than last year or the j
yield is much les3. Probably both, j
but more probable the latter is j
.the cause for the very light re
; ceipte up to this date, ?as compared
with the same period last year. Up j
to the night of September the 23rd
of last year the public cotton
weigher at Edgefield had weighed
1915 bales, for a like period this j
year only 803' bales have been
weighed. These figures speak for
A member of the Executive
Committee remarked to the Ad
vertiser's representative on Satur
ai day that there are two thiogs that j
the people of Edgefield county are
; especially noted for or delight in
doing-fightiug and votiDg. Woll^
i v if that be true, thoy will not lack
for opportunity this year to gratify
their votiiig proclivities; Two elec
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
. phy become greater aod greater as
its application and use become
more general. Vesstls in distress
many miles at sea have by this
means summoned relief from tbef
shore or from other vessels in the
same waters. By the .wirele?s sys
tem the Navy Department can
keep in constant touch with many
of the war vessels. Only recently
\ *wo battleships that were craisiog
' in different waters received orders
to proceed in haste to Havana.
While en route to Cuban waters
'these vessels were in constant
communication with each other as
' well as with the goverDment sta
. The Greenville News has satis
factorily explained why certaio
"ladies" were arrested io that
fair city for riding "man fashion."
I Oar contemporary says : "The two
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 violatiDg any un
written provincial law regulating
the style of riding^ ou horseback,
but oh account of the disorderly
manner in which they conducted
themselves in the gaze of the pub
lic". Let lurther" criticism of
Greenvillelae withheld. Tfie proper
place for women who are "aoy
tbing else" but ladies is behind
the bars, and the city authorities
should be commended: for having
the courage to put ?them there.
The writer .asked a prominent
business maa in Augusta a few
days ago how the people of that
city looked upon the recently eu-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 Open
for business across the river ou tb*
Carolina side. Can we afford foi
South Carolina to thus become a j
party to the ?vasion of a Georgia
law? If it is good for Georgia to
baye bucket-shops driven out,
would it not also be good for South
Carolina? When our next legisla
ture convenes, ca? it afford todo
less iu this matter than the Geoi
gia legislature did? It was Hou.
James ?. Boykin, a worthy son of
Edgefield, who introduced and se
cured the passage of this law in
Georgia, now will not 6ome mem
ber of the Edgefield delegation to
the general assembly introduce
and secure the passage of a similar
law for South Caroliua?
Closing: Session of The Woman's
' Christian Temperance Union.
. "We have learned that if pro
hibition does not always prohibit,
neither does civilization always
civiliz*, nor education educate,
nor christianity christianize.''
Frances E. Willard.
Only a partial report of the
Woman's Christian Temperance
Union was given in last; woek's
issue. There were so many good
things said and done, that euthu
siam become epidemic, and the
cause of prohibition has never
been more stimulated than by t ht
exercises ot last week in the Metho
dist church. ?
One good Methodist brother, au
honored member of the local Wo
man's Christian Temperance Un
ion said, "I thought wo would
have a good time but bad no idea
of such a time as this."
A very intelligent young
brother" said of Mrs. Burger,
"Sbe did me more good in the ad
dress 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 men 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 Temperance Union 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 the next meet
ing was left to the decision of the
executive board, with invitations
from Manning, Newberry, Chapin,
St. Georges, Edg? field and John
Mrs. Harris of Crawfordsville,
Ga.,, made a pertinent and sug
gestive talk on Sabbath obser
! vance, as the superintendent of |
'that department of the Georgia
Woman's Christian Temperance i
Mrs. Burger at 4 o'clock began j
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 eloquence. While this is
true of Mrs. Burger, it is not all
the secret. Her gifts are legion, j
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 staie of Maiue. In
South Carolina a large majority of
the newspapers invite the public
to partake of intoxicants in 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 6Ubscribo for mag
azines or newspapers which carry
whiskey advertisements. All borior
to them. Our instruction SB white
ribboners is^to repudiate all ad
vertisers of spirituous liquors.
Mrs. Burger stated that sbe had
recently visited the state prison of
Maiue, 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 lack of knowledge
of the dispensary but avowed that
while prohibition does not always
prohibit, neither does high*license
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
Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock
the largest audience cf the con
vention gathered to hear the gold
medal contest. In this seven young
ladies participated, as follows:
Class Motto: "We Contest for
Truth." Miss Bessie Corbett, Pax
ville, "The Kum Maniac;" Miss
Jenet Etheredge, Leesville, ''The
Stray Sunbeam ;" Miss Allie Mc
Cullough, Scranton, "Tom ;" Miss
Ruth Tompkins, ?Edgefield, "The

Williamson, Leesville, "Tbe Re
submissiooist ;" Miss Cora Whit

Cans;" Miss Deborah Z?igler,
Bamberg, "Old Soapy."
The judgps on this interesting
occasion were Dr. C. E. Burtp,
12. H. Folk and B E. Nicholson,
E?qs. The medal a very handsome
>ue with "Oratorical Prize W. C
T. U." inscribed thereon was de
livered by Dr. Burts to Miss Allie
McCullough of Scranton, S. C.
Durjug the interval in which
'he judges made their decision,
Hrs. Burger gave two humorous
readings which were heartily ap
jlauded. After the decision of the
judges was rendered, Mrs. Harris
)f Georgia moved that the conven
tion adjourn. ' "Blest be ?hetie
that binds" was sung with feeling

by the large congregation and

frequent mention.of the music and

A beautiful gold pin was pre

Teachers Examined. .
The County Board of Education
held tbe examination for teachers
in the court house on Friday last,
the 21st inst. It is a significant and
deplorable fact that there was not
a white male applicant. The Ad
vertiser does not discount or dis
parage the lady teachers. God for
bid! Tbey have a mission and are
filling it very satisfactorily, very
But mon are needed for teachers
as well as women and.-uufortunate
ly, their number is rapidly di
miui8hiug. They are abandoning
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 couutry? It would go to the
bow-wows in a trice.
Besides the twelve colored
teachers-some males and some
t?males-who came before the
board for certificates, the follow
ing young ladies applied: Misses.

A li'tie child of M ich aal S i ra

uily increased the inflamation.
Mr. Strauss came to Mr. james
N\ Nichols, a local raercbaut for
i something to stop the paiu. Mr.
Nichols says : l'I advised him lo
