EDGEFIELD, S. CL, WEDNESDAY, JULY 14th, 1909;
FARMERS UNION MET.
Delegates Elected to the State
Obtained by President
In response to the call of Presi
dent W. R. Parks, a meeting of the
Farmers' Union was held in the
court house Saturday morning.
Quite a number of delegates from
the local union? were pr?sent, and
after reading the minutes- and dis
posing of regular routine business
the following delegates to the state
convention which meets in Colum
bia, July 22nd,' were appointed: W.
R. Parks, J. M. Wright, George
Cartledge and HY W. Dobey. Mr.
J. M. Wright was elected business
agent. This organization has accom
plished great good for the fanners
of this and other states, 'therefore'
'we trust that instead of letting (he
interest wane, the farmers will put-f"
new life into the organization.
Here is what some of the mem
bers of the Union haye been doing:
' Hon. W. R. Parks sowed six bush
els and one N pint of wheat, on ten
and a half acres of land last fall
and threshed 339 bushels of wheat
'therefrom, which is an av?rage
yield of over SS bushels per acre.
There is no good reason why far
mers should now be^paying $8.00
per barrel for flour. What Mr.
Parks has done this year, every
other farmer can do. ~~
Mr. B. D.. JKitchings out 9,000
pounds cf good crimson clover hay
from an acre and three quarters of
land. Hr. Ki tebin g3 is a wide-awake,
progressive farmer and appreciates

Twin City Power Company Will
Increase Capital Stock From
One to Three Million
As stated in The Advertiser, last
week, the/ investment of northern
capital in the "extreme, western edge
of the county by the Twin City
Power Company means much to
Edgefield county. Recent develop
ments have revealed the . fact that
this enterprise is of greater magni
tude than our people ever dreamed
of. Tne company was originally
capitalized at $1,000,000 but last
week made application to the Secre
tary of State for permission to in
crease the capital to $3,000,000,
which wilt1 make it rank among the
largest corporations in the South.
After the mammoth plant is comple
ted and the property is returned for
taxation at sixty per cent of its val
ue, just as all other property is re
turned, it will lighten the? tax bur
den very materially. *
The people of the county are in
debted to Mr. L. F. Dorn for this
stroke of good fortune. The Twin
City Company owns thousands of
acres of land on the Georgia banks
of the river, besides its large hold
ings on the Carolina side, and its
promoters could have had it incor
porated under the laws of Georgia
instead of Soth Carolina, making its
property returnable for taxation in
the former state. Through the in
fluence of 'Mr. Dorn, who has been
the company's local manager for
several years, it was made a South
Carolina corporation, consequently
whatever benefits accrue will.be
reaped by the people on this side of
the Savannah. A thousand thanks
to Parksville's progressive citizen.

the News and Courier had the fol

Advertise-and Do It First
The catalogu? houses are far and
away the best advertisers on deck to-,
day. Why? Take their book and
read. You will find a description .
that describes. A picture that sho*
"how the-thing looks." A price
that tells how much it costs. That
is the sum and substance of their
advertising-and it gets the business.
The local newspaper is the Nbest ad
vertising medium on earth for the
local merchant-if he will only use
it. He is on the ground. He has
the goods. If he is out of an article
he can get it quicker than the custo-'
mer-if he can'the had better try
another house. He stands behind
his goods. He is there tomorrow to
rectify the error of today. But he
must get the attention of the buyer
-and he must get that attention be
fore the catalogue man does. The
most effective way is through the
columns of the local newspaper.

'Sign of Improvement
The follqwing was told, accor
ding to Judge, of the patient of a
well known New York physician:
The patient,. an elderly gentle
man, became quite ill while -the
doctor was absent, upon a vacation,
the indisposition being the result
of Jtoo frequent potations. A female
nurse was at once engaged td care
for him in his hotel.
A lady, resining in the sanie ho
tel, became aware of his illness, and
interested herself to the extent of
one morning inquiring concerning
his condition of the chambermaid.
"Share, ma'am," replied Maggie,
"an' I think he clo be gettin' along
very well. The nurse was sitjtin' on
his lap this monning!" .

The World's Work has a timery
editorial upon the- efficiency of the
agriculturist in the south as against 1
that of the farmer of the north.
Iowa receives $1,088 a year for ag
ricultural products for every farm
laborer/within her borders. New 1
Hampshire receives $477, North 1
Carolina $149 and South Carolina 1
$147. The net product per acre is' !
40 per cent less in the South than,
in the North Central States. Con- !
tinning, the World's Work says:
"The reason for this discrepancy '
is not in the soil, for-whether or ;
not the soil of the Carolinas is capa- 1
ble pf as much as that of Iowa-it
certainly is as rich as the soil of
New Hampshire. The land and the [
climate are favorable. The fault
lies with man7 and not inherently :
with him, but with his training and
with his methods. With no larger
agricultural population than she has
now, the south could produce three
times her present output if her popu
lation were as efficient as that of
New Hampshire. Dr. Seaman A.

We' meantto write you last week
abo ut our 4th of July picnic at Lor
rick's pond but work was so pressing
that we neglected it. This little
gathering is an unusual affair. This
makes, if we,mistake not, the fourth
year we have celebrated this day
in a very quiet pleasant way. We
have no amusement except to come
together as friends, enjoy a friendly

speaker. His sermons are full of
wise counsel and it is hoped that
his work here will be productive "'
of gr?at and lasting good. Do our
people appreciate the opportunity
of hearing such a powerful man of
God? What seems to be the drift
of man? Is it toward materialism,
the world, towards that which gives
pleasure for a season and then leaves
man weaker, or do we ever stop to
think^rjf the God given blessings we
enjoy every day and turn aside from
the busy rush in life to give the
Creator praise and thanks for what
he has done for us. Our children
are growing np to manhood and
womanhood. Are we using every
opportunity to give them the proper
training, not a hand and head
training merely bat a heart training,
the foundation for character.
