The growers of sea island cotton
are in earnest ajbout the matter of
controling tibe price of long staple
cotton. Each planter has agreed
to contribute two dollars for every
bale of cotton grown to a common
fund, which will be used to erect
a warehouse for storing Bea island
cotton. After the warehouse is
- erected no long staple cotton' will
be sold unless a good price is offer

That parents are fully aroused
to a sense of. their duty and
responsibility in the matter of

fact that the colleges that have re

that the rising generation as

which augurs well for the future
of the home, society and the state.
Law S?ouldbe Changed.
Last week -Judge Gary sentenced
a blind tiger in Laurens county
a county with a dispensary-to
pay a fine of 4800 or serve one
year on the county ohaingang.
This violator of the law was con
vected on four counts, is why so
large a fine was imposed. The law
which makes provision for im
prisonment or a fine should be
changed so as> to make the sen
tence in such' cases as the . one
above cited imprisonment at hard
labor with no alternative fine.
The sentencing of a few blind
tigers to the county chaingang
would have a very deterrent effect
upon violators of that class. The
man who makes his money selling
blind tiger liquor does not mind
Activity Heede? Atoas; Industrial
Leesville with a population of
about ono-fourth of that of Edge
field is to have a $100,000 yarn
mill. Are our paopJe going to
stand idly by and be outstripped
by every town in the state? The
statements of the two local banks,
which are published in this iasue,
show tkeir combined internet
bearing deposits to be about
.$170t000. This, as viewed from one,
standpoint, is idle money. The
depositors place it in bank at five
per cent because they are unable
to invest it at a higher rate. Many
of thom are doubtless on the alert
for permanent investments ata
(higherrate of interest than sav
ings banks can afford to pay. This
investment could be found in the
j establishment of sundry indus
trial enterprises in our town.
Edgefield needs such enter
prises as a yarn mill, knitting
mill, laundry, furniture factory,
mattress factory, overall factory,
brick-yard, and bas ample capital
for the erection of these manufac
Without inoreased activity
along industrial lines our town
will never grow and develop to any |
very great extent. The desired end
[can be accomplished if someone
twill take the lead; scores will be
ready to follow.
What Leesville aud other towns
! are doing Edgefield can do. Do
you not think so?
Mr. John C. Morgan Writes an In
teresting Letter From San An
tonie? Tesas. Visits Pecan
Groves, Beautiful Cities,
Edgefield Advertiser: - When I
last wrote I was in the northern
part of Runnoll county, which is
a reddish black soil, not the real
black waxy land. I told you of my
trip from Ballinger up there by
private conveyance. Well, on my
way back tb Ballinger I went a
different route, which led through
an extremely dry section, where
th? crops are nearly a failure. In
many places it will take j rom ten
to twenty acres to make a bale and
some places more Many of the
farms are deserted. On this road
were large ranchee and in many
places mountains. I saw only one
large flock of sheep, but saw a
good many cattle, mules and
horses. Here I saw the little prai
rie dogs by the hundred and oc
casionally his companion, tbe owl.
From Ballinger I went to Brown
wood and spent the night with a
kinsman, J. W. Jennings, who
took me around the city. It is a
real pretty one, and there are
many magnificent bouses here and
much wealth. Howard Payne col
lege for both sexes ie here and it
is a fine Baptist school.
Among other things I was driven
to see a large Pecan grove of one
hundred and fifty acres, many of |
the trees being filled with nuts.
There were numerous trees out
side of this grove also. I J eft
Brown wood for Cameron and for
many miles the country is moun
tainous with a scrubby growth of
oaks on it, not large enough to
make much wood. In Belle and
Milam counties the lands are bet
ter, but crops short, land being J
/partly timber and prairie.
From Cameron I went south and
for quite a distance the lande were
river bottoms. Then came miles
of post oak lands and then for
miles the country is level, some
places being real prairie, others
scattering live oak with moss
growing on it, looks very much
like southern part of South Caro
lina. A large per cent of this conn
try is grazed, but what crops there
were tolerably good. In some
places cotton was nearly all]
I reached here the 9th and .have
been taking in the many places of
interest and beauty, with my
niece. Miss Fannie'Morgan, who j
lives here. One oftthe noted places
is the ?lamo in the heart of the
city. It just thrills one to stand
on the spot where the heroes
Crockett, Bowie, Travis and others
died so bravely.
Just south of the city is the
noted hot sulphur well with its
stream of water gushing through
a four inch pipe. This water ie j
said to be nearly a sure cure for | j
rheumatism and most skin diseas
es. There is a fine hotel here for <
invalids. Near the city are some <
very ancient ruins. We visited one
of them, the San Jose mission,
founded about 1720, one of the
windows is considered to be one ?
of the finest gems of architecture (
in Amerioa. Some of the walls aud
towers are yet preserved. This is a
quaint oity, different from any
that I have seen. It is in so many
rays a mixture, the ancient and
modern. There are thousands of
Meandering through the city,
is a beautiful river of clear water, ]
?rith many banana trees growing
>n its banks, also other tropical
slants. In fact, the city in many
vays is semi-tropical. If I were
'ich, I would like to live here.
There are many parks, some of j
hem perfectly beautiful, with j
dear streams filled with innumer
able fish, which you can see swim
ning about, and floating grace
uliy on the water is the maj es tic j

hem were two large black bear,

arks I found buffalo, elk and
eer. In this city is fort Sam
[ouston, one of the largest army
osts. This city is so beautiful and
ttractive that I can 'hardly quit
riting about it. Its population is j

"Cotton Bales Day."
In order to improve ^the price
and attract more cotton to the
local market, the niSfcnants and
business men of Aiken have ar
ranged to ho!d "Co* ton Sales
Days." The first ooe will be.on
October the 3rd. The idea is to
have as mucb cotton carried to
Aiken on that day as possible, aud
then have several out-of-town buy
era to come and bid on the large
lot. Already 355 bales ? have beeD
pledged for October the 3rd. A
better plan would be for Aiken to
have' wido-awakp, aofcive buyers
on her streets every day-from
Monday morning to Saturday
night-and let tbe?e buyers pay
all that the prevailing market or
price warrants.-Tr * ' ^ would

Dr. Kilmer, the emi

Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root ls not rec

just the remedy you need. It has been tested
in so many ways, in hospital work, in private
practice, among the helpless too poor to pur.

every case that a special arrangement has
been made by which all readers of this paper
who have not already tried it, may have a
