On Saturday last, about the
hottest day of the year, the sales
, of the North Augusta dispensary
amounted to $1,000. A very large
portion of this sum was spent by
working men who could ill afford
it and whose families doubtless
needed their daily earnings. In
making money through the sale
of liquor, Aiken county is de
priving*; rrsny a"'destitute home
of some of the actual necessities,
to say nothing of. comforts and
luxuries. Shame upon Aiken !
Legal and Illegal Sale of Liquor.
Some how or other the errone
ous impression prevails in the
minds of some parsons that the
unlawful handling of whiskey
only exists in dry counties. Why,
bless'your life, a big, full grown
liquor"still was seized in Aiken
county last week while in. opera
tion. Some folks claim that the
legal sale of liquor will "put
down" the illegal sale. If that be
true, how is it that a distillery
was found in Aiken? You can bet
your last dollar that those who
operated this illicit distillery did
uot jgive their "corn juice'' away
to their neighbors and friends.
The only difference between
Aiken and Edgefield is this: Ai
ken has her dispensaries and
some blind tigers, and Edgefield
has no dispensaries and some
blind tigers. Edgefield ha3 elimi
nated the greater evil entirely and
is reducing the lesser as public,
sentiment sgaiust it increases.

lu hi3 nrgumeut against the
"special box" resolution before
tue county Democratic executive
committee ou Saturday Hou. J.
William Tburmoud took a strong
and mauly staud for prohibition
in our,town and county. He stated
that he was au ardent advcoate of
tho dispensary and believes now
that it accomplished much good
in cloding up the barrooms
throughout tho state, but siuce
prohibition has been tried-every
one is compelled to admit that
conditions have improved tre
mendously. Mr. Thurmond stated
that iu his judgment not one
tweuty-fif'.h as much whiekey is
sold nowas was sold before pro
hibition went into effect.
He stated further that a farmer
who resides soma twelve miles
above Edgefield recently told him
of the very marked improvement
in the conditions upon bi8 farm
siuce the legal sale of liquor was
abolished. Whereas formerly wherj
his tenants came to Edgefield aud
purchased a supply of liquor from
the dispeusary be could scarcely
manage them, while now they
give him no trouble.
Rescinded "Special Box" Order*
Jt will bo recalled that at a re
cent meeiing of the county Demo
cratic executive committee a
resolution waa adopted by a vote
of 5 to 2 providing for the placing
of a . special box at the polls in
which the voters could cast their
ballots upen "local option" or
"prohibition." Making thia an
issue so late in the campaign rras
deemed very unwise by many,
consequently the resolution met
with considerable opposition. Sev
eral members of the committee
and quite a number of citizens
urged Couuty Chairman B. Ev
Nicholson to call a meeting to re
consider the matter. He, howevu1,
wa." unwilling to call a matins
withoutfifRt having a fuller ex
pression fron? the corumitee;
theijfore, be addressed a letter to
each member io order to getan
expression from them. Thirtepn
of the niuateen members of the
committee replied, and of this
number ten favored calling the
meeting to re-considpr the reso
Incompliance with the call of
Mr. Nicholson, a meeting was
held ou Saturday, there being six
teen members of the committee
present. After cousiderable dis
cussion both for and against the
resolution, a motiou to rescind it
was adopted by a vote of 10 to 5.
Map of Edgefield County.
While in conversation with
Prof. Jerome H. -Courtney sever
al days ago, he informed us "that
he is contemplating making a
map, of Edgefield county. There is
now no complete map of the coun
ty in existence except the old,
out-^f-da^e Bol?s map which was
made in '1871. Since that date,
Aiken, Saluda and Greenwood
counties have been formed, which
not only reduced the area but
very y materially changed the
boundary lines of the old counly.
There is great need for a map of
Edgefield county as it exists to
day, giving the townships, public
loads, principal streams, location
of eburch?s, principal school
house, couutry residences, towns,
railroads, etc. This is a gigautic
undertaking, but we know of no
one who-is better qualified for the
work than Prof. Courtney. Ko re
ceived his technical ??training at
the Citadel and has bad much
actual experience in surveying.
In fact, he assisted Mr. W. H.
Nicholson in making a survey of
the entire boundary liue of the
county several years ago, aud bas
the field notes of this survey now
in his possession, which would
very materially aid him in the
contemplated undertaking. We
trust that Prof. Courtney will
meet with* sufficieut encourage
ment to cause him to begin work

Card From Mr. Merritt
Editor Edgetifild Advertiser:
? will appreci
ate it *.vry much if you will allow
me througn too coi um 19 of your
paper to thank the patrons of tho
Southern llailw-iy and Southern
Express Companies at Edgefield
for the universa' courtesy and
patience accorded me in th*
transaction of bus i uesa. If affair*
here now are iu any b-?tr.->r (?hapa
than when I cam* here, it is not
because '-Caesar" bas not had all
that he his but because 'he people
know what belongs to them, and
are perfectly satisfied wheu they
get it. I am uot leaviug here for
a better town or better job, but ?
because I have some little prop-j
erty interests at Ridge Spring that
ueed my persoual attention. A
long-time ago a great city was
destroyed because there could not
be found iu it five just persoue;
now I_ am real sure that in the
little city of Edgefield th9re can't
be found to-day five unjust per
sons. I am sincerely iu love with
historic Edgefield^ and hope the |
good things of life will continue
to congregate here, until there is
LO room for any more. Again
thankiug the people one aud all
for their charity aud encourage
ment, I am,

REPORT OF GRAND JURY.
State of South Carolina,
County of Edgefield.
To Iii* Honor J W DeVore, Presid
ing Judge of the August terni of
We, the Grand Jury of Edgefield
County, beg leave to submit the fol
Report of Committee on Poor House
and County Farm.
We find fourteen inmates now in the
County Home, nine of this number arc
white, five are colored. The inmates
are cared for as well as present condi
tions will permit. Mr. Scurry, the
Steward, informed the committee that
all of the inmates were well fed and
caved for in a material, way, and it was
brought to our attention that while the
poor and helpless of our County were
being supplied with the physical neces
sities for this life, the little Chapel for
conducting religious services was sel
dom used. We most respectfully ap
peal to the Christian people of this
county not to neglect this important
We furthermore call the attention of
the Court to the condition of the dwell
ing houses on the County farm. The
Steward's home and four of the homes
for the inmates are in a very bad con
dition. We urge upon the Court the
necessity -of providing comfortable
homes for the Steward and the in
mates. Unless this is attended to be
fore winter, we recommend that the j
inmates be removed to some place in
the county where they can be protect
ed from the cold.
We find the barns, stables 2nd cow
sheds in good condition. There are on
the County farm three mules, one
horse, five milch cows, four yearlings,
and thirty hogs, all in good condition.
About as near as your committee
could estimate, there are about one
hundred and fifty bushels of com, plen
ty of fodder and hay to feed on until
the present crop is harvested is har
vested. The present croji.is in good
condit ion. The Steward says that he
made last year about eight hundred
bushels of corn, three bales of cotton,
j two hundred bushels of sweet potatoes,
twenty-five bushels of peas, killed
about three thousand lbs. pork. We
suggest that in the future the County
direct thc Steward of the Poor House
! to make a report in writing to thc
i Grand Jury, and "let it be embodied in
! the reports of the Poor House Cornmil
? tee to the Court. This has not been
: the cistern, and we did not require- it
i of the present Steward, but your Ccrr.
j mittec" cannot make an intelligent re
; port unless in thc future the Steward
i bo required, as other public officers,
: to file, in writing, his report, or keep
i books, or some kind of record accessi

j We find as nearly as we can estimate
j it 150,000 feet of lumber belonging to
j th.? County, exposed to the weather,
aiid with no protection against fire,
j stacned in the woods near the County
j Home. We urge that some disposition
j be made of this lumber before it is a
! total loss to the County.
