Produce of the Day Farm.
. What is it that Mr. P. B. Day
does not produce on his valuable
farm below Trentou? Early last
?spring his. fine seed com created
considerable favorab'e comment
around Edgefield; 'later his straw
berries were eagerly bought J>n
this market, and still later Mr.
Day's peaches were much sought
after. Now we have au excellent
ppecimen of the produce of his
farm along a different line. A
colored mau brought six very
fine chicken roosters-four Ply

crease with each succeeding year.
It was ou account of this large
growth that be took Mr. M?UOB in

Mims, besides being a young man
of unimpeachable character, is a
very capable business mau, and
we predict that this well e?tal5

with even greater success in the
future than it has in the past. At
tention is directed' to the notice
of copartnership published else

Sedgefield Rifles Make Charming
At about the ninth hour oe
Thursday evening last the Edge
field Rifles and a number of iuvi
ted friends assembled in the ar
mory, where . they passed several
hours mostdelightfully.Capt. Col
lett formed his company and
drilled hi9 men for a ?hort while,
in order for the visitors to' see
'hat progress they are making in
military affairs. The veiy excel
lent manner in which the mem
bers of the company drilled was
indeed a surprise to all who wit
nessed them. A surprise, because
a very large per cent of the men
were a few short months ago the
orudest and most inexperienced
material, from a military, itand
poiut, that it is possible to find.
They are, however, well officered,
and if the men in the ranks will
take as great interest and pride in
the company as those who sh apo
and direct its affairs, the Eden
field Rifles will before many
months be one of the leading mi
litia companies in the state.
Something more than a drill was
provided for the pleasure and en
tertainment of the guests - on
Thursday evening. A princely oys
er supper was provided by the
p.oldier ?J boys. Both etewed
and fried oyeters, with olives,sau
ces, pickles and coffee were de
lightfully sarved iu great abun
dance. The supply appeared to be
equal to the demands of a regi
ment, while but little more than
one company was present. Soon
after the supper the fragrant fumes
of fine cigars filled the ball. The
cigars, like the other good things
of the evening, were also supplied
from the treasury of the company.
