When Mr. Henry Hughes Hill

brought a peck of seven-top wheat
with him and sowed it on about a
quarter of an adre of land. He is
experimenting with this very pro
lific variety to see whether our soil
and climate are suited to its growth.
Those who have seen the wheat es
timate the yield at about 40 bushels

drought. The outcome of Mr. Hill's

All Teachers Re-elected
The announcement that all of the
teachers of the Edgefield Graded
School have been re-elected for an
other session will be pleasing infor
mation to the patrons of th.e school.
In addition to the six teachers who
have labored so faithfully in the
past, Miss Lillie May Bailey has
been elected for the next session,
making seven teachers in all. Edge
field is peculiarly blessed in having
such a strong corp of conscientious,
painstaking, efficient teachers. We
seriously doubt if any other town in
the state oflikesize has such excellent
graded school advantages as Edge
field. These faithful teachers can
not be commended too highly for
their services. Parents, when you
chance to meet these ladies tell
them how you appreciate their work
as teacher. It will encourage them
and stimulate them to do even bet
ter next year.
Bought Controlling Interest in
Bank. y .
Mr. J. B. Norris and his'son,
Mr. George R. Norris, have pur
chased a controlling interest in the
Columbia Savings Bank and Trust
Company. It is capitalized at
*200,000rof which 8100,000 is held
as a trust fund. The bank has a
surplus of ?37,000. It has not yet
been announced who will be chosen
president, of the bank under the new
management, but has been stated
that Mr. J. B. Norris and his son
Mr. George R. Norris will engage
actively in banking. These gentle
men have been identified with a
number of large commercial and fi
nancial interests since locating in
Columbia some years ago, and their
Edgefield friends congratulate them
upon their good fortune in acquiring
the controlling interest in one of
Columbia's leading banks.
The Cause of Many
? There is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden
deaths are caused
by it-heart dis
heart, failure or
apoplexy are often
the result of kid
ney disease. If
kidney trouble is
allowed to advance
ed blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrh of
the bladder, brick-dust or sediment in
the .t?rine, head ache, back ache, lame
back, dizziness, sleeplessness, nervous
ness, or the kidneys themselves break
down and waste away cell by cell.
Bladder troubles ?lmost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
better health in that organ is obtained
quickest by a proper treatment of the kid
neys. ,Swamp-^oot corrects inability to
hold urine and scalding pain in passing it,
and overcomes that unpleasant necessity
of being compelled to go often through
the day, and to get up many times during
the night. The mild and immediate effect
of Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy j
is soon realized. It stands the highest be
cause of its remarkable health restoring
property.es. A trial will convince anyone.
Swamp-R?ot is pleasant to take and is
sold by all druggists in fifty-cent and
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle and a book that tells all
about it, both sent free by mail. Address,
Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y.
When writing mention reading this gen
erous offer in this paper. Don't make
any mistake, but remember the name,
Swamp-Root, and don't let a dealer sell
you something in place of Swamp-Root
if you do you will be disappointed.
