The editor of The Advertiser
has received the following com
munication from the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union- of
Edge-field, with the request that
it be published:
Mr. J. L. Mirna,
Edgefield, S. C.
The Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union has in
structed me, as its secretary to
express, to you onr appreciation
. of, and to thank you for the stand
you take upon the liquor ques
tion. Most especially do we refer
to "your excluding from your col

and retail Jiqnoi h ou se s.
Mrs. W. L. Dunovaut,
July 23rd, 1907.
We are deeply grateful for this
~ expression of appreciation aod
endorsement of our staud upon
the liquor question, especially
when the source from which it
came is considered. The Woman's
Christian Temperance Union it
composed of about fifty high
minded,*zealous, Christian women
and a dozen or more representa
tive men, the latter being honora
The writer has always, private
ly and publicly, endeavored to?
curitail and euppress the use of
intoxicants. Therefore, believing
thai; advertising wiiskey would
contribute to an increased con
sumption, we have stoutly refused
to advertise intoxicating liquors j
for anyone at anyprice. As long
. as the present editor is at the
helm, the^policy of this newspaper j
will remain unchanged.
The foregoing communication
will stimulate and encourage us
to still greater activity in our
efforts to curtail the use of intoxi- j
cants in Edgefield county.

ol Edgefield, Particularly Bet
ter Railway Facilities.
A goodly number of citizens
gathered in the court house on
Friday morning to take steps
looking to the improvement of
?he railway facilities of Edgefield.
Mr. Wm. P. Calhoun was made
temporary chairman and was
urged to accept the permanent
chairmanship but declined to
serve, owing to ill health and the
demands upon his time. Mr. B.
E. Nicholson was elected perma
nent chairman and Mr. S. McG.
Hon. W. A. Strom and Mr. S.
T. Williams were present in the
interest of the proposed electric]
road to Greenwood. The latter:
says he will contribute 100 acres j
Mr. M. B. Sturkey was present
to look after the interests of Plum
Branch. He said his people are
exceedingly anxious for a rail
road to be built from Pl nm
Branch to Edgefield. As prgof of j
their interest, these good people
will contribute $10,000 and secure
sufficient contributions along the
proposed route to grade the road.
Talks were made and the dis
cussion was ODgaged in by Mes
srs. W. P. Calhoun, A. S. Tomp

There.are four proposed roads.
One from North Augnsta to Edge

Saluda and Newberry; a third
from Edgefield to Greenwood and
still another from Ecg-field to
Plum Branch. No particular route
will be selected until some infor

and co-operation will be offered by
parties living along the proposed
Mr. Sheppard stated that he
recently had a conveisation with
Mr. Sullivan concerning the
building of the electric road from
Andersou to Belton, and the cost
of grading and placing ties, etc.,
of that road was $22,000 pnr mile.
Il is estimated that the cost of a
road through this county would
be something like $15,000 per mile, j

Hon. John C. Sheppard Appointed
A Member el The State Board
of Education But Declines to
A vacancy having occurred on
the State Board of Education from
the second congressional district,
Governor Ansel appointed. Hon.
John C. Sheppard to fill the place.
The appointment, however, failed
to meet with the approval of Su
perintendent of Education O. B.
Martiu the chairman of the board.
In fact, he became so incensed
over uot being consulted concern
ing the appointment that in a fit
of madness he wrote Governor
Ausel an insulting letter, for
which he apologized later. Mr
Martin raised no objection per
sonally to the appointee but con
tended that soms one from among
the teaching profession should
have been chosen.
In the interest of harmony and
in order to avoid friction and un
pleasantness between the mem
bers of the board, Mr. Sheppard
wrote Governor Ansel declining
to serve. The following being a
copy of his letter:

1907-The HOM. M. F. Anael.
Columbia, S. C.-My Dear Gov
ernor: When I received your favor
of the 25th instant, in which you
did me the honor to iuquire if I
would accept an appointment to
fill a vacancy on the State board
of education, I did not hesitate to
write promptly that I would cheer
fully acquiesce iii your wishes,
for I believe it to be the duty of
every good citizen-and among
"good citizens" I expect tobe
numbered as loDg as I live-to
discharge any public cufy to
which he may be assigned, if ho
feels that he i& qualified to reuder
"But I notice in tho papers this
morning that yuur action in the
matter is displeasing to the State
Superintendent of Education, for
the reason as expressed by bim
that he regards 'the appointment
aB political rather than educa
"Without taking the pains to
discuss the merits of the objection
thus Btated by the Stat?? Superin
tendent of Education, I write al
once to relieve your Excellency
from any embarrassment in ref
erence to the matter.
"I would not be willing for any
consideration to be thescause of
the lack of harmony in any de
partment to the public service
especially in connection with
matter of such overwhelming im
portance as tho educational in
terests of tho State; nor would "
be.willing to servo in any capaci
ty with auy official who feels that
the service that I might render
would by possibility seriously in
jure the work of bis department
"I, therefore, respectfully re
quest your Excellency to recon
sider your action and revoke the
"Thanking you again for the
honor conferred I remain with
great respect, yours very truly,
"J. C. Sheppard."'
Wbeu it became knowo that
Mr. Sheppard had declined to
serve, the members of the Edge
field bar, realizing that Mr. Shep:
pt?rd would mtike au active and
very useful member of the state
board, met and adopted the fol
lowing resolutions, urging Gov

The Limit of Life.
: The most eminent medical
scientists are unanimous in the
conclusion that the generally ac
cepted limitation of human life is
many years below the attainment
possible with the advanced knowl
edge of which the race is now pos
sessed. Tho critical period, that
determines its duration, seems to
be between 50 and 60; the proper
care of the body during this de
cade caDnot be too strongly urged ;
carelessness then being fatal tc
longevity. Nature's best helper
after 50 is Electric Bitters, the

fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder

If corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or

during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and
the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of the most dis

More than fifty farmers ard
other citiz?ns enrolled their names
as members of the association,
and a goodly number bad joined
at a previous meeting.
Mr. Wm P. Calhoun was called
upon aud spoke briefly of the
great work that the organization
is doing for the farming interests

was iicxc CBTreu-upuir -a mr x-^ru^
at length and more iu detail of
the work of the Cotton Growers'
Association in providing means
by which farmers can coutrol the
price bf their product He, very
properly, laid great stress upon
the importance of marketing the
cotton crop during the Hntire year
instead of during October and
November. This can be doue by
the erection of warehouses iu
which cotton can be stored and
money borrowed upon it.
. Mr. Padgett condemned the
practice of some some farmers
who sell their cottou for future
delivery. If the manufacturers
can buy sufficient cotton before
the marketing season opens to run
their mille several months, they
}f cou-se will not be eager for the
staple when the bulk of it is mar
keted and will not pay what it is
vorlh. The man who sells his crop
Defore it is harvested is doing his
)rother farmer great injustice.
Mr. S. McG. Simkins was asked
o address the meeting. He ex
cessed great surprise l.t. the lack

n those things that promote their
welfare. He urged upon the far
