Mr. Merchant, have you read
"The Advertiser's Proposition" in
The merchants of the town have
very generously conated piizes
for the Chrysanthemum Fair.
Now, The Advertiser gives them
an apportuuity to win a prize.
Read "Tho Advertiser's Proposi
tion" in this iscue.
Mr.vW. H. Turner is making a
great success with his millinery
department, also with, his ladies
coat suit department. Sis new
advertisement this week should
be of special interest to the ladies,
At their elegant home in south
Edgefield, Hon. and Mrs. J. Wm.
Thurmond entertained in honor
of Judge George Johnstone last
evening, all the members of the
Edgefield bar being present.
The familiar f*ce and form of
Hon. J. W. DeVore bave been
greatly missed by his friends,
particularly in tbe court room.
Mr. DeVore has been quite sick for
several weeks but we are glad to
state that he is now able to sit up.
P was reported on the streets of
Edgefield on Monday morning
that the Trenton hotel, which is

before any considerable da.nage

The Day Selected.
Friday, November the 8?b, bas
been- selected as the day for hold
ing the Chrysanthemum Fair.
Tbe occasion was a greater suc
cess last year than even the rorm
b?rs of' the. association expected
it to b*, bnt from the present out
look the Fair of11907 will by
great odds eclipse that of last
year. The floral parade, will be
the crowning feature this year.
Already a score of contestauts
have eutered, one or two ladies
from Trenton beiug among them.
The Advertiser's Proposition.
Realizing that through the
Chrysanthemum Fair the Edge
field ladies were enabled a year
ago to raise a. goodly sum .of
money for the improvement of
tbe village cemetery, and reali
zing further that on the success
of the Fair.this year depends the
amouut that will be again raised,
The Advertiser purposes aiding
these good ladies in every possi
ble way to make a success of the
occasion. Now, they believe that
much will be added to the Fair
by having all the stores decorated.
And that this will cause the Fair
to be more largely attended and
better patronized, no one will
question. Therefore, iu order to
induce the merchants to decorate
their store fronts, The Advertiser
will, provided as mapy as ten
merchants enter the contest, give,
free of cost, a quarter page adver
tisement, oue insertion, to the
merchant that bas the most at
tractive ht?re froi.t on the day of
the Fair. This priz-i is placed at
the disposal of tho lad.es, and
will be awarded by a committee of
judges to be selected by them.

Valuable Bridal Present.
Recently Mr. Jobn M. May
purchased the home of Mr. Wal
ter Adams in south Edgefield, and
bas given it to his daughter,
Ethel, as a bridal p.?sent. This
was an act of thoughtful generosi
ty that is seldom equalled. Mr.
and Mrs. Kemp, who ar? at pres
ent with Mr. and Mrs. W. H.
Harling, will pccupy their home
about November the 1st.
The FIoral Parade.
The coming Chrysa?themu m
Fair, with the floral parade as a
distinctive feature, is now the talk
of the towu, particularly among
those who purpose entering the
contest. The parade will consist
of -decorated buggies, carriages,
wagons, ox carts, goat wagons,
donkey teams, etc. Already about]
fifteen entries have been booked
and there will be a number of |
More Than Half a Crop.
A few dava ago the writPr asked
Mr. L. R. Bruosou about the out
look of the crops above Cleora
that had to be replanted after the
terrific hail storm of last summer,
and be paid thtit if a killing frost
will bold off a little longer half a
;rop or possibly/ more will bp
made. The crcps in that section
being late were not injured by the
drought in August and September.
A slight change in the raiiway
schedules went into efftct on Sun

will leave Edgefield at 3:30 in
stead of 4:20 p. m. The arrivals

Dr. Smith Loses Heavily.
The many friends in Edgefield
and vicinitv will regret to learn
tbKt Dr. Ernest C. Smith, of Wil
li Bron ? recently lost his eaw mill,
grist mill, gin house, four balen
of cotton aud about 400 bushels
of cotton seed by fire. The prop
erty was unmsured, making the
total loss about. $3,000. Though
the loss is heavy, Dr. Smith is
not a man to be dowu cast Ky
such reverses of fortune. He will
with greater determination than
ever press forward and replace
that which has been reduced to
ashes by the merciless flames.

The Court of Common Pleas
convened on Monday morning,
and the first case called was the
suit for $1,000 damages against
the Southern Express Company
brought bv Mr. B. P. Covar. The
plaiutiff, iu whose -favor a verdict
of $15 was awarded, was repre
sented by Hon. J. Wm. Thur
mo?d and S. M. Smith, Esq., and
the defendant company by Mes
srs. Sheppard Bros.
Th next case was also a suit
for $1,500 against the Southern
