Some small, knee-pants boys/, ii

irettes, which they purchase un*,
tully from merchants in Edge
ield.,' We do not believe the mer*
lants vj?late the law th?nWlves by
eiling cigarettes; ta minors- bnt
ome of the clerks do, either wilful
ly or thoughtlessly. Our merchants
should! instruct their clerks not to
riolate.the law. Ref using ..to. sell
cigarettes to minora will not prevent
their getting them . altogether but
it will "make cigarettes more difficult
to-obtain, as well as show, the boys

A Wise Step.

The^aotion of *he Farmers' Union
in deciding to. offer--prizes fol*
best yields of wliea? and oat* will
result in much benefit t? the farinera ]
of the county, and weare sure jt'vril! j

H?he production of .these cereals in

We believe the inauguration* .oJN
? these contests : has ^en - about thje J
wisest thing ever clone by the Farm
ers' Union in this county.-Anderson
. Daily Mail. ' t;
The Advertiser bas been doing
single handed in Edgefield; what
the Farmer's Union is doing in An
dereon' county. .We are putting,
.fifty-odd dollars in,actual cash into
these contests, to. say-nothing of the
I time, personal effort and space giv
en them in our columns. But we
are satisfied that ' the contests". are
accomplishing the- purpose for
which they were inaugurated, that
of stimulating the farmers.to grow
more corn . and grain; therefore, we
feel amply compensated.for the out- J
lay. . /
Queen of The Carnival.
The ladies who have been appoint

His Kiding Ability Tested.
A New Jersey farroer,whose farm
is near, a school for boys, was great
ly annoyed by the depredations of
the youngsters. Finding two of the
boys helping -themselves to his
choice apples, be! ushered them from

of his boot.
The following day he found the
same boy? loitering in the vicinity
of his orchard, fence.*. .
"What yoong, scamps hangin'
round here for?" he shouted. I
told yoti yesterday what, you'd git
if I caught you on my land ag'in."
"Yes, sir we remember," exclaim
ed the spokesman. "We didn't come
for, apples this time. '. We came to
ask you to join our football eleven."
