Mr. Bacon's Illness.
During the past week our entire
town bas been greatly depressed
over the illness of Mr. James T.
Bacon. Having exerted himself too
much during the intensely hot
weather he suffered a nervous break
down,accompanied by complications
During Saturday and Sunday he
was considered seriously ill, but we
are happy to state this morning
that his condition shows some im
provement. He is receiving the best
of attention, and many prayers are
ascending for his recovery.
Who will Bring First Bale?
New cotton is being marketed over
the state, but in this section the
crop is two or three weeks later
than last year. Mr. R. N. Broad
water who usually markets the first
bale of new cotton at Edgefield told
The Advertiser's representative Sat
day that he will be unable to win
that distincttion this year on ac
count of the fact that his oldest cot
ton, about 22 acres, was destroyed by
hail. Hg says however, that bis
young cotton is exceedingly fine.
LATER: Mr. Asa G. Broadwater
brought the first bale of nev/ cotton
to market Tuesday and sold it to
Messrs. W. W. Adams & Co. for
12 cents'per pound.
The Gilgal Meeting.
Assisted by Rev. E. M. Lightfoot

eight additions to the church. The

throughout the meeting. Rev. Mr.

the signal victory of prohibition in
Orangeburg county. He was one of
.the pioneer prohibitionists of that
county, while pastor at Orangeburg
having sown seed that bore abun
dant fruit in the late campaign.
Prepare to 5owWheat. .
There is no reason why a suffi
cient quantity of wheat can not be
grown in Edgefield county to sup
ply the people of the county with
flour. We were informed by a re
liable gentleman Monday that Hqn.
W. R. Parks sowed six bushels of
wheat last fall and harvested 300
bushels. Better plan for a few acres
of. wheat this fall. Those who are
acquainted with conditions in the
west say it will be a long time be
fore flour will sell at old prices
again. Supplying your pantry with
home-grown food will not only
swell your bank account but render
you immune from pellagra.

The annual session of the Wom

Life Insurance with me, helping to

enjoy life up therefor two weeks.
The splendid Prudential with its
Low Rates, Special Benefits and
Privileges, its Simple, Strom
and Attractive Policy, has enabled
me to write over $50,000.00 life in
surance so far this year. I have
signed a pledge to write in all this
year $100,000.00 for the Prudential.
The Prudential has the Strength of |
Gibraltar, and altogether it is a pleas
ure to do business with them. A
man at age 30 with a wife age 26
can get a Life Policy for $1,000.00
on both lives, for.$29.77 per year.
When either of them dies the $1000
is paid to the other, surviving. Oth
