The editor of The Advertiser bas
learned with profound regret that
* Mr. J. T. Bigham, editor and pro
prietor of the Chester, Lantern has
< sold his paper and will retire from

Blind tigers are scared out of
their boots in Spartanburg. A white
" man of considerable prominence
was convicted last Friday on three
counts for the unlawful selling of
liquor and was sentenced by Judge
Klugh to pay a fine of $1,500 or
serve eighteen months in the peni
tentiary or on the chaingang. It is
encouraging to see that the circuit
judges are-opening their eyes to the
"fact that light fines and short terms
of imprisonment do not deter the
tigers. A sentence or two imposed
in every county like the Spartan
burg sentence will drive the unlaw
ful sellers of liquor into other lines

the County* Union and State Ex
ecutive Committeeman from the
second Congressional district, an
nounces in this issue that. a mass
meeting wild be held in . ie court
N house Friday, December the 4th,.
under the auspices of the Farmers
IXnion. President Harris, a practi
cal and successful farmer, will be
present and address the meeting.
Vfce trust that he will be greeted by
a very large number of farmers and
business men of other callings. The
Farmers Union is a splendid or
ganization and The Advertiser very
earnestly hopes to see it grow and
prosper throughout our county and
Establish Fertilizer Plant.
For two years commercial fertili
zers, like everything except cotton,
have gradually advanced in price.
>. No doubt there has been reasonable
and just ground for this advance, as
the material of which fertilizers are
made has advanced. But we rather
apprehend that the consolidation or
combination of large fertilizer
manufacturers which is being plan
ned will cause still further advance
in price. Now, it is for the farmer
to decide whether he will continue
to use large quantities of commer
cial f ertiiizers at the prevailing high
price, with a possible advance, or|
will he make manure on the farm
and reduce his fertilizer bill.
The Advertiser is not antag
onistic to the fertilizer manufactur
ers, nor do we oppose a liberal ap
plication of commercial fertilizer,
especially wher judiciously used,
bu't'we believe that the farmer who
has cows, horses, mules, and woods
from which to obtain straw, is un
necessarily burdened with large
guano debts. He is ina position to
set in operation a fertilizer plant of |
Supply your lot, cow and horse
stables well with straw, and by that
means establish a fertilizer plant of
your own. Then, early next year
supplement your home-made manure
with commercial fertilizer. And
next fall you will find your land im
proved, your yield increased and
your fertilizer bill decreased. Try it j
Tust one year.
Mass Meeting Called.
Bursuant to the call a meeting of
the Edgefield Agricultural Club was,
held in the court house Saturday]
afternoon, the president Mr. James
R. Cantelou, presiding. On account
of the small attendance the regular
topic was not discussed. Several
short talks were made upon the ques
tion of organizing a County Fair
Association. Upon motion of Mr.
j^McG., Simkins, a resolution was
adopted 'calling a mass meeting of
the citizens of the county for the
1st Monday in December, in the
court honse immediately after the
public sales are held. A committee
consisting of Mr. S. McG. Simkins,
Mr. J. M. Mays and Mr. Bettis Can
telou was appointed to invite several
speakers to address the mass meeting
in December. After retiring for a
conference the committee reported
that they fbad unanimously agreed
to invite Hon. John Gr. Mobley, of
Winnsboro, president of the South
Carolina Agricultural and Mechan
ical society Congressman J. 0. Pat
terson, and Congressman A. F. Le
Mr. Cantelou, the president of the
club, was ?called upon to give an ac
count of the several fairs that he
has visited this fall. During his
remarks Mr. Cantelou stated that,
while he saw some fine stock, Mr. J.
M. Mays can raise finer colts than
any he saw, and that Mr. S. E. Mor
gan has a colt that would have won
first prize had it been placed on ex
hibition. Mr. Cantelou also said
Mr. Julian R. Strother can grow fin
er turnips than any exhibited at the
Georgia Carolina fair. All of this
proves beyond doubt* that our peo
ple can come together and have a
first class "fair of their own next

for Monday, December 7th, sp as to
make the attendance large and to
create enthusiastic interest among

Kind Words That are Highly
In a very interesting letter to th?
News and Courier on Monday, the
Edgefield correspondent, Mr. S.
McG. Simkins, made the following
very kind reference to The Adver
"Although the Edgefield Adverti
ser is the oldest county- newspaper
in the state, its present owner and
editor, who is strong and talented,
is among the youngest newspaper
men in South Carolina. The Adver
tiser in its old age is becoming, and
very interestingly and intelligently
! so, quite reminiscent. In last week's
issue it reproduced the graphic story
of the great conflagration that visi
ted our town in the '80 s. In this
week's issue lt gives a running his
tory of "The Edgefield Female Col

was in operation during the carly
'50's. The Rev. John R. Gwaltney
was-its president and professor of
ancient and modern languages; Col.
Janies T. Bacon, professor of music;
Mr. R. H. Mims, professor of draw
ing and painting. All of. these gen
tlemen are alive. Of Editor Bacon
the whole state is fully informed,
his past and present writing placing
him constantly before thc people.
Mr. Mims, who is now the oldest
citizen of Edgefield^ still works at
the profession of which he was a
teacher, while the venerable Dr.
Gwaltney is at Rome, Ga., connect
