he has never seen finer chrysanthe

exhibited at Edgefield's Fairs.
It was a great disappointment to
Mrs. Abner Broadwater that her
v.iry fine chrysanthemums were ex
cluded from the Johnston Flower
Show, having arrived about ten min

acted as judge, pronounced them to
be among the finest chrysanthemums
that he had ever seen anywhere.

Very Elaborate Stag Dinner.
Mrs. John R. Tompkins is an
artist, a musician, is skilled with
the needle, an excellent housekeep
er, and her esthetic taste and very
unselfish nature make her a queen
among entertainers. Wednesday
evening last Mr. and Mrs. Tomp
kins gave a stag dinner in honor of
'heir brother-in-law, Hon. H. F.
Powell, and, with one accord, the
twenty-odd guests declared it to be
the most delightful function of the
kind ever held in Edgefield. Al
though no member of the fair sex
appeared upon the scene it could be
easily discerned that a woman of
exquisite taste and possessing un
usual gifts as an entertainer planned
and directed everything pertaining
to the dinner. The menu which was
more elaborate than that of the lun
cheon given in Columbia in honor
of the Presideut was as follows:
Oyster Cocktail Salted Wafers
Stewed Oysters Oysterettes
Turkey Cranberry Sauce Celery
Green Peas on Rosette Wafers

Resolutions by Friendship Ma
Whereas it has pleased Almighty
God, the Great Architect of the Uni
verse to remove by death from time
to eternity Dr. Robert C. Mason,
therefore, be it resolved:
1st. That by the death of Bro.
Mason, Friendship Lodge loses one
of its oldest, as well as one of its
most worthy and faithful members,
the country a patriotic and upright
citizen, the medical profession an
energetic and successful physician
and his family a kind and indulgent
father and husband.
2nd. That we extend to the be
reaved family our hearty sympathy
in this great sorrow, and commend
them to our Heavenly father who
in all his dealings with his children
never makes a mistake.
3rd. That a blank page in our
minute book be inscribed to his
memory, and that the Lodge be
draped, and that the brethren wear
the usual badge for thirty days.
4th. That a copy of these resolu
tions be sent to the family, and that
they be published in two county

Gold Already on Hand.
Hundreds ol' indhiduals allover
the county are eagerly awaiting the
announcement of the result of The
Advertiser's corn contesi. The an
nouncement has been delayed, on
account of the late planting of some
of the "pet acres." At the earliest
possible moment, after all of the
corn has been gathered and tile cen
tral committee has made its report
the result will be made public. The
Advertiser already has the gold on
hand, ready to be awarded. In
whose pockets will it jingle?
Have Learned at Last.
Farmers are responding all along
the line to The Advertiser's appeals
in the matter of sowing wheat and
oats. Mr. C. M. Williams, one of
the leading wheat growers of the
co' nty, some time ago reserved
about seventy-five bushels of wheat
to sell for seed instead of having
it ground into flour. As The Adver
tiser man is in the market for some
seed wheat, we asked Mr. Williams'
son a few days ago whether his
father could supply our need, and
his reply was: ' We have sold all of
the seed wheat we had and could
have sold 500. bushels more." To
speak plainly: the farmers of Edge
field county (the writer included)
are "learning some sense." They are
tired of putting their hard earned
dollars into the pockets of the
growers of western eora and wheat.
They have learned that they can
grow these necessities at home
cheaper than they ~ can* buy them,
even with fifteen cents cotton.

Red and Blue Ribbon Contest
We learned Monday, through
that very excellent citizen, Mr. John
W. Adams, that the members of the
Colliers Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union have inaugurated a
very spirited Red and Blue mem
bership contest. The plan is this:
The membership is divided, one
side adopting red as their color and
the other wearing a small piece of
blue ribbon. The two sides vie with
each other in their efforts to secure
the greatest number of new mem
bers. The side that loses-secures
the smallest number of members
entertains the members of the win
ning side. Such contests not only ad
vertise the organization and increase
the membership of the local union
but'afford'a great deal of pleasure
and diversion for the members.

The Farm Wood Lot.
The first snow of winter should ba
made use of in getting up the supply
of fuel for another year, says Ameri
- can Cultivator. It ls much better to
do this before the snow becomes so
deep as to make the work harder. The
careful farmer has looked over his
wood- lot and calculated as to what
portion should be taken out for wood
or timber. As these products are be
coming scarcer every year, it ?should
be the aim of every farmer to tc the
best care of the wood lot and select
out the trees for wood and timber that
lt may be kept in a thrifty, growing
condition right along.
The past season, owing to the long
period of dry weather, much timber j
was killed by the forest fires that pre
vailed in so many places, causing dis
aster and loss. Of course on such
tracts the burned and ruined trees
will have to be removed and used to i
the best advantage possible. The value
of the wood lot should" eyer be in mind |
and its future usefulness insured.

Important nitrogenous concentrates

Grote and His Wife.
The wife of the historian Grote
must have been an extraordinary wo
man. She rode without a saddle, she
was not afraid to put off in a boat
without a man. and she was plucky
enough to marry her lover without
permission and return home without
saying a word about it. Sydney Smith
described this lady and her lord in his
happy fashion, "I do like them both
so much, for he is ladylike, and shelf
a perfect gentleman."
