Pat Vagrants to Work.
At this season when farmers
are behind with their work and
need extra labor, there is no ex
cuse for idleuess on the part of]
anyone. There are, however, a
score or more of negro . boys and
men about town who have no
regular employment, being loaf- j
ere and vagrants. It is the purpose
of the town council to force this
, idling class to go to work or make
' them leave town.
This should be done in justice
to the farmers in this vicinity who ?
need labor, also in justice to the
people of the town, for somebody
is supporting these vagrants.
There are also a number of wo
men who are not earning a liveli
hood by the sweat of their brow
that should be made to work or
be forced to leave town.
Let's inaugurate an active cam- j(
paign against idlers and loafers,
lithe citizens at large will co
operate with the authorities, the | j
town can be purged ot vagrants in
a short Time.
White vagrants should be dealt
ri tb in the same manner as col jr- j ]
jd vagrants. There are some white,
men in town who have no visible [j
meant* of support, and yet they do
not work. Such men are a burden j
upoo any community, and are a t
Vjery undesirable class of citizens, r
Prohibition Reduces Crime.
Judge Broyles, of the AtlaDta
police court delivered an address
on May the 6th.before the annual
meeting of the Georgia Sociologi
cal society, in which he set forth
the advantages of prohibition as
follows : .
"Has prohibition decreased
drunkenness and other crimes in
Atlanta? I refer you to' the dock
et of the polic? court for the first
four months of 1907, when the sa
loon was with us, and the first
four mouths iii 1908, when the
saloon was absent. I simply give
the figures. As Daniel Webster
said of Massachusetts. 'There she
stands; she speaks for herself.'
"Number of cases tried for tbe
5rst four months of 1907, 6,056.
4. "Number of cases tried for the
Bret four months of i 908, 3,139.
"Showings deorease during pro
hibition of 2,917.
"Number of 'drunks' for the
5rat four months of 1907, 1,955.
"Number of 'drunks' for the
?rst four months of 1908,471.
"Showing a decrease during y?ro
libitiou of 1,484 cases of drunken
ness in four months.
"And yet there are many people
ffho know nothing of the facts
running np and down the state
ind yelling at the top of their
roices that 'Prohibition does not
"Yes, these dry, inanimate fig
ares speak to those who listen a
wondrous story. They tell of hun
ireds. yes, pf thousand*!, of faith
ful wives into whose pale and wan
Faces the roses are beginning to
"They tell of hundreds, yea, of
ihousands, of little children who
io longer pale and tremble at the
jouud of their fathers' footsteps
apou the threshold of their hum
bie homes! They tell of hundreds,
pee, of thousands, of long suffer
ing and devoted mothers who no
longer Bit late into the night wait
ing and praying for their wander
ing boys-but now, with her boys
3afe with her at home, there is a
new light in her patient eyes, aud
a new song in her devoted heart."
The people of Edgefield do not
have to go to Atlanta, however, to
be convinced of the advantage of
prohibition in curtailing lawless
ness. The police records of our
town w hile whiskey was sold com
pared with the records under pro
hibition furnish onvinci ng
proof at our very door. Further
more, the Edgefield jail bas been
without a prisoner for two months,
which is the first time probably
in the entire history of the county
that the jail has been without a
prisoner for BO long a time,
ff Memorial Exercises.
Probably nowhere in the &tate
orin the entire south wis Me
aorial Day more fittingly or more
beautifully observed than in
Edgefield on Monday. At three
o'clock the Daughters of the Con
federacy, the Confederate veter
ans, the Behool children, and the
military, consisting- of the Edge
field Rifles and the S. C. C. I.
corps of cadete, gathered at the
court house, formed a procession
and under the direction of Gen
Thoa. W.- Carwile, marshal of the
day, marched to the opera house.
The column was beaded by the
Riflemen, next came the cadets,
then the gallant veterans, who
were followed in tarn by the boya
and giris and members of the
local chapter U. D. C., all beariag
wreaths and flowers to be placed
upon the gravea of the Confeder
The large s' ge in the opera
house waa beautifully decorated
with flowers, evergreens and the
Confederate colors. A larger au
dience than waa present on this
occasion probably never assem
bled in Edgefield before. Gen.
M. C. Botler, aa master of cere
monies, requested Rev. T. P. Bur
gesa to open the exercises with
prayer. A aolo, "Just bbfoie the
battle, mother,'' waa next eoftly
and sweetly sung by Mra. John
R. Tompkins. A recitation, "Me
morial Day," by little Miss Flor
ence Peak was the next number
on the program. Gen. Butler then
introduced Prof. Yates Snowden,
of the University of South Caro
lina, the orator of the day. For
moie than half an hour the
speaker held the earnest attention
of the audience while he read a
very admirable address. Great is
the pity that so valuable a paper,
from an historic standpoint, can
not be printed and circulated
among the younger generation.
After a chorus of patriotic ?ira
by more than a acore of Behool
girls, clad in Confederate colors,
the Crosses of Honor were present
ed by Gen. M. C. Butler to a num
ber of veterans. It was very gen
erally regretted that all who had

Extracts From Letter From Mrs.
Lula Lake Brockman.
Tbe following aro some extracts
from a letter written by Mrs. Lula
Lake Brockman, to a friend. Air.
and Mrs. Brockman, and Mr.
Brockman's mother, with the
baby, Willis Blocker Brockman,
one-and-a-half years old. are now
living in Soochow, China, where
Mr. Brockman is ? professor in
the University of Soochow:
"It seems to me we get busier
and busier as i he days go by, bul
we aie happier for it. l am teach
ing one period each day in the
Laura Haygood Memorial School,
a girl's school under the Woman's
Board. I teach a class in English.
You would be surprised to U9ar
how well tbey read and spell.
"Mr. Brockman is ju6t as busy
now as he can be. He has such a
splendid in flueuce for-good among
the Ch?mse, as well as the for
eigners. We are going to more and
more Chinese meetings now since
we understand the language bet
ter, and going into the homes of
the people more I have been to
four meetings this week, and this
is only Thursday. But still we
have time for other things. We
get up at 6 o'clock, have break
fast at seven. Mr. Brockman goes
to school at eight o'clock, aud I
give from then until nine entirely
to the baby. We build block
houses, play with.the Teddy bear,
etc. If the day is pleasant, we
spend that time out of doors. Al
ten, I go to my ilass at Laura
"We have tiffin at 12:30. At
one I begiu' my Chinese studv
with my teacher. We study till
three or four o'clock, and then we
go for au exercise, pay calls or go
to meetings.; The evenings we
usually give to reading. Usually
Mr. Brockmau reads, while moth
er and t isew or do other things
that can be done quietly. The
baby goes to sleep at six and
sleeps well until next morning.
"Once a week, we have a Chi
nese meal, and eat it with chop
sticks. Most of our garden is
planted with corn, green pea?,
bunch beaus, lettuce, okra and
radishes, and will plant other
thirgs its soon as the grouudis
dry euo'agb. lt is raining now.
We have a splendid garden spot,
and Mr. Brockman ^nj ys the
work. It gives us exercise. We
have some p?tty flowers to">. Sent
to Edgefield for a yellow jessamin
vine, but I do not know that it
will come to us alive. One of our!
friends had a rose sent from
home and it bas doue nicely. I sm
going lo try to get a Mareeba! Niel
some of these days. Do you re
member the oue we had in Edge
field? We have Dad a beautiful
violet bed this winter. It. has boeu
full of blooms most ' of the time.
We Bep.t a large bunch to one of
the hospitals the other day. The
Chinese love flowers so much and
they do not have violets. I enjoy
so hearing from the friends and
loved.ones in Edgefield."

Corn and Cash.
Corn in the crib is just like
cash ic the bank.
Most farmers who have corn at
this season also have cash.
Theie are very few farmers who
have cash and no corn.
The man who buys corn at this
time has to send out of the couu
try cash that would be very ac
ceptable at borne.
If York county should raise all
the corn she needs there would be
a great deal mora cash than there
is, because approximately speak
ing, every bushel of corn that
comes here from the West pinch
es one dollar oft' tbe circulation.
All good business men have
more or loss appreciation^ the
extent to which corn is a money
crop. It is only those who have
less business capacity who hold
that there is uo money in com.
It is very rarely the case that a
farmer who makes enough corn to
ruu him uutil the next crop gets
into financial difficulty, and it is
almost as rare when a farmer who
fails to riake sufficient corn to
run hie place gets to the next crop
without trouble.-Yorkville En
