In his valuable.paper ou "Good
Roads," read before the Edgefield
Agricultural club, Gen. Butler
struok the key note when he ad
vocated v tho appropriation of
funds from the national treasury
for the improvement of the public
highwaye throughout the country.
The government makes the rivers

Addressed by Mr. James Henry |
A very profitable meeting of the
Edgefield 'Agricultural club was
held on Saturday last, the presi
, ; dent, Mr. J R Cantelou, presiding.
Mr, James Henry Rice, Jr., sec- j ]
retary of the State Audubon so
?iety, was present ny invitation
and addressed the meeting. Th
purpose for which the society was
organized is the enforcement of
the laws for the protection of
game and fish. Mr. Rice is em
ployed to go vup and down the | \
state prosecuting the violators of
the law and to create public sen
timent for the better enforcement
of game laws. N
Mr. Rice being thoroughly, con
versant rwith every phase of the
subjeot gave his hearers many
. facts that were indeed revelations r
to them. The ?peaker showed
clearly the need for belter pro
tection of birds that destroy in
sects. As an example, he related I j
the experience of the farmers\*
? around Blackville, S. C. Last
year it was reported to him that
the hay crop in that vicinity was
8lmoet totally destroyed by the
army worm. He looked into thep
conditions and found that some
months previous to that time
5,500 robins had been slaughtered
io and near Blackville, and each
robin will devour 200 army
worms io a day. Thus we see
what a valuable bird the robin
?\28 as an insect destroyer.
Mr. Rice cited a case' in 'the
eastern part of the state where
considerable corn was damaged
by the bill bug, and an investiga
tion revealed the fact that the
-.partridges, which feed largely
upon these bugs, had been almost
exterminated in that section.
Wherever "partridges are s laugh
- tcred in great numbers cut worms
and bill bugs attack corn. Mr.
.sRice stated that Marlboro county,
the-largest corn growing county
in the state, can not raise corn
after the lapse of ten years unless
the killing of partridges ie stop
ped within the borders of the
Mr. Rice mras'paxticuiarly severe
upon the hunter who slaughters
birds for market, stating that not
one should go unpunished. In
Aiken last year he found 10,000
partridges in cold storage ."'rle stat
ed that when game is sold a pre
mium is- put upon its extermina
Mr. Rice also referred to the
wanton destruction of fish by
poisoning the water of creeks and
rivers with lye and green walnut
juice, saw dust and dy narnu
being siso used to kill fish. He
appealed to his hearers to orgao
ize and by concert of action pun
isb such flagrant violators of the
game and fish laws.
This splendid address made a
profound impression opon all who
were present, end our people hav^
become interested and aroused as
never before. Their eyes haw
been opened to the necessity ot
protecting game and fish.
Upon the conclusion of Mr.
"Rice's address Gen. M C Bu'lei i
read a carefully prepared euri J r,
very valuable paper upon thu eui -1 c
ject of good roads. We hoped to I
be *ble to publish this paper but
the crowded condition of our col
umns makes it impossible, owing
to its length.
At the suggestion of Mr. S
MeC. Simkins "Good Roads"
will be topic for discussion at the
next meeting of the club. Some
specialist on good roads will be
invited to address the meeting.
The next meeting will be held
ou the 2nd Saturday afternoon in
November at 2 o'clock.
Enters Upon Sixth Year.
Before announcing his texr. 'on
Sunday morning, Dr. C. E. Burts
stated that he had just entered
upon his sixth year as pastor of
the Edgefield Baptist church, and
that soma remarks upon how the
members of a congregation or
church can aid the pastor would
Dot be inappropriate. Dr. Burts'
.suggestions and gentle remon
strances, all uttered in the most
beautiful spirit, were indeed time
ly and will lead to more loyal
support and service from the laity
of the church. During the past
five years Dr. C. E. Burts has
labored fearlessly, faithfully, con
scientiously, in Edgefield, and
God has richly rewarded bis
labors. His field of service has
not been confiued to our town.
The county, eveu to the remotest
corner, has^ felt and has been
benefitted by.; the quickening,up
lifting power; af hip in fluence and
personality. May he be spared to
labor anioug'us many, very many,
years to come.
Announcement Concerning the
. Floral Parade.
Friday the 30th of October will
be Edgefield's gala day, wheu all
the towu will be full of people,
and merriment and life will
characterize the occasion. The
floral fair will open on Friday
morning, October. 30t'b, in the
armory ol Mr. W. W. AdamH' hall,
and iu the adjoining rooma lunch
and oysters will be served for the
The greatest event perhaps will
be the parade on Main street
