Death of Mrs. Sallie Beall. Rum
Away Horse Injured Mrs.
Yesterday, Saturday, October
10th, Mrs. Sallie Beall, mother of
our esteemed friend, Dr. Joshua
Beall, a former citizen of Edgefield,
now of Blythe, Ga., was laid to rest
in the McCormick cemetery beside
< her husband, Mr. Joseph Beali who
preceded her by many years.
Dr. Beall, Capt. Geo. Beall, Mrs.
Lou Henderson and Mrs. Gus Tray
lor, children of Mrs. Beall, with
many grand- children, who now live
. in Georgia, attended the funeral.
Six grand-sons acted as pallbearers,
as follows: Messrs. J .R. and Ii. H.,
Beall, J. F. and C. C. Henderson
A*. L. Traytor and J. L. Dye.
The funeral was preached by Rev
J. H. Carswell in the McCormick
Baptist church, which Mrs. Hen
derson helped to institute and dedi
After the funeral the most shock
ing accident the writer ever witness
ed,not to ba a fatal one, took place.
A fiery young horse hitched at the
brow of the hill overlooking the cern
etery, broke loose jost as the con
gregation was dismissed at the
grave, ran down through the cem
etery, toaiing hown and breaking
up tombstones and monuments and
finally tearing the buggy to pieces,
and liberating herself at the foot of
the hill. Running to the top of the
hill to see if any occupant had been
thrown from the buggy, we found
that the horse had run over Mrs.
Lou Henderson and she lay bleeding
and unconscious upon the ground,
?her head pillowed upon her hus
band's lap, who had tried to turn
the horse. Immediately some one
startled the audience by announcing
- that Mrs. Henderson had been kill-,
ed* and such shrieks and cries we
never heard. However, Drs. Fuller
? and Bell were" quickly by her and
au examination proved no broken
pones;, andonly one cut in the
left lera pie by a rock on the
ground, with bruises and '.ontasionfll
;?*-ie was carried to-the Connor hotel*
whe^ her wounds were dressed by

lated amount ea<
the physicians. What made tli? mat
ter doubly sad Mrs.Henderson is just
recovering: from a paralytic stroke
of a year ago. At four o'clock,
j twohours after the accident.she was
I resting well and her physicians feel
that if she has no. recurrence of the
paralytic stroke she will recover.
. It looked at one time, that, as we
had laid tho mother to rest, we
would have also to lay the afr! icted
daughter by her side.

Wheat and Oats.
The weather looks threatening
this, Monday miming, but why
should we complain aftpr two weeks
of beantifnl sunshine, and as
the old adage says, farmers have
been busy making hay while the
sun was shining.
Cotton is opening fast and labor
bas been sufficient to keep ,up with
it Very little is being held for high
er prices, as present prices are con
sidered fairly good. We consider
our crop about two-thirds gathered
and most every fanner will make
more than was expected sometime
The yield of corn also is much
'larger than last year. We observe
many.fine hogs to be fattened for
pork this fall. Why should not our
farmers wear broad smiles and feel
happy for the many blessings of
God during the past year?.
A large crop of grain will be sown,
possibly more wheat than for a num
ber of years. A liberal amount bf
fertilizer will bo used,- especial

Central Committee of Judges
In planning the corn contest the
awarding of prizes has been taken
entirely ont of the hands of the
growers of the corn and the editor
of The Advertiser. Committees
judges were appointed for each
neighborhood to measure the land
and see the corn gathered and weigh
ed. These committees have been
instructed to file their reports with
a central committee composed
Judge W. F. Roath, Judge J. D. Al
len and Clerk of Court W. B. Cog
burn. This central committee-will
carefully examine the reports made
by the several committees over the
county, reporting to The Advertiser
who made the largest and
second largest yield of2 corn
The first and second prizes
will then be presented to the two
farmers named by this central com
The editor of The Advertiser has
done his utmost to have this contest
conducted fairly from the beginning
and for fear that some one would
say we awarded the prizes to some
favorites or special friends, we deci
ded to have the central committee
three men of unimpeachable intet
rity, make th? awards. We under
stand that the official reports are al
ready coming in ami in due season
the final result will be announced

their reports completed they are r
