For the past four years the Wo"

their state missionary. Miss Ger
trude Bramfield, whoso first labors
in our behalf were in Horse Creek
Valley, where Miss Bramfield and
her devoted friend and wise co-labor
er, Miss TI. If. Wright, lived. They
were a benediction to all the three
or four towns in which they exercis
ed their influence. For the past year
they have been city missionaries in
Greenville. Miss Bramfield has
visited the Edgefield association on
a number of occasions, and is belov
ed and appreciated for her great
worth and attractive personality.
Now the information comes to us
that Miss Bramfield will not longer
serve as our missionary, but is to be
married in June to one of South
Carolina's most beloved ministers,
Rev. F. M. SatterWhite, of Sum-^
ter. After June she will therefore
reside in Sumter. We are glad that
she will become a South Carolinian.

An arrangement has been effect
ed whereby the public square and

down the dust, which at ti mes is not
only exceedingly disagreeable but it
is a menancc to the health of the
town. The merchants will purchase
a sprinkler at once and at a meeting
of the council Monday morning the
authorities agreed to supply the
water and provide a team and driv
er for the sprinkler. B. F. Zimmer

mills, has consented to furnish the

accentuated the disagreeable situa

steps be taken to alford relief.
