on the ground that their teachings were

The Germans are right. Not. every
thing that poses in the guise of religion,
is real religion.
No town is worthy of a newspaper if

stockade.-Fort Mill Times.
In the management, of a newspaper,
an editor should net give a thought to
either the good will oz ill will pf the
people; but -conduct it upon a high,
honorable, independent, plane. Above
all, let it not be the servile 'tool of any
individual^ set of . individuals. Like
?e minister, a newspaper man who!
endeavors to please, everybody finally
pleases nobody, and in time his paper
will lose the confidence and respect of ?
all of the people.
Captain O. P. Bright.
.Editor The Advertiser: Capt. 0.
?vT. Bright has been the conductor on
the Edgefield-Aiken train 'for a
number of years; and, as such, he
has given universal satisfaction to
the patrons of the Southern Rail
way. The people here hoped that he
had become a fixture. He liked his
run and not long since purchased a
nice Lome near the station and set
tled down as one of us. Report says
that under a rule adopted by the
conductors themselves that another
man is claiming his run and will
oust him unless the people can help
/him retain the run. It seems that
one conductor who has seniority
over another in the matter of ser
vice can claim the run of his junior
and get it. The railroad company
has nothing to do with that ar
rangement. Under that rule another
man is claiming Capt. Bright's run
and under that rule, he can get it.
The people of Edgefield are very
much exercised over the matter and
desire that. Capt. Bright should hold
his, position )vithout in any form
having any thing against the con
ductor who is likely tok succeed him.
They just simply desire to retain
Capt. Bright because he has mad? a
good, accommodating and polite
conductor, hjis purchased property
here and has become a citizen of the
town and is closely identified with
society and the best interests of the
town. It is hoped that yet his senior
will allow him to remain and claim
Mr. Cobb's River-bottom Corn.
. The fine corn is not all to be
/found in the rural districts. Some
exceedingly fine a?res can be seen
within the borders of the towns.Mr.
J. M. Cobb- who resides in south
Edgefield has a three-acre field of
corn that any farmer in the county
would be very proud of. It was the
writer's privilege to inspect Mr.
Cobb's corn several days ago, and
it is indeed an inspiring sight The
stalks are large, tall, stately, and
seem to defy the winds. Many?
stalks have two large, well develop
ed eara and some have as many as j
three. The one thing that impressed
us most .about this beautiful riv
er-bottom, corn was the exceedingly
heavy ears. Such ears as Mr. Cobb's
fills a crib rapidly,, and they are the
kjnd that fatten a horse efuickest.

In my communication of last
iveek, speaking of the. growth of
this community, I had reached the/
point vh?rel was ready next to tell
about our school affairs. The scat
tered population, and a lack of
unanimity among thc patrons, has
for years made it almost impossi
ble to have a school in this commu
nity. Some winters there would be
no school, and others, five or six
pupils would go for three or four
months, the daily attendance finally
dwindling to two pupils. In the
absence of a regular school, the
Trustees divided the money for this
end of the School District as fairly
as.they could . between the patrons
who sent their children to other
In 1905, however, the Board of
Trustees met, and fixed on a defi
nite plan for maintaining a perma
nent school in our midst. The
school house waa moved to a more
suitable point, and a small school
collected, of which Miss Magaret
Smith became the efficient teacher,
both for that year, and the year fol
lowing. The next winter, some of
the patrons moving away, our
school hibernated again. Then,
in 1906, more population com
ing in, new interest revived in the
school, and it became active again
with Mrs. W. J. Gaines in charge.
During that year there were ten
pupils enrolled. This . past year,
Mrs. Gaines was again our teacher,
with a schdol roll of fifteen names.
Still other children have come with
in reach since the last school open
ed, so that hy next winter it is
prpbabletfhere will be twenty pu
pils. If now we can get a new
school house, m o ref centrally loca

Dr. Gwaltney's Life ,One ?f
Edgefield's Greatest 'Bless
Dr. L. R. Gwaltney was spared to
bless the world for eighty years,
lacking only a few months, and one
fourth of his long life was spent in
Edgerield, the dearest spot on earth
to him. The first ten years of his
labors in Edgefield, from 1858 to
1868, was in the prime of
active, vigorous young manhood,
and the other stay of ten years, a
second blessing bestowed' upon
Edgetield by a beneficent Pi ovidence,
was in the evening of his life, our
community reaping the benefit of
his mature years and large experi
ence. * 9
The Ed gen" eld of to-day, con
trasted with the Edgefield of fifty
years ago, as pictured by some of
the oldest inhabitants, evidences a
very marvelous transformation, and
that the saintly Luther Rice Gwalt
ney was the leading factor, both di
rectly and indirectly, in bringing
about this wonderful improvement
of conditions can not be questioned.
1 He left his impress upon two dis
tinct generations. After ten years of
s eed sowing in Edgefield he was
transferred to other fields of ser
vice, remaining away thirty-odd
years. When he 'again came to us
another generation had come upon
the scene and their lives were quick
ened, their ideals raised by his' God
ly valk and conversation.
.It is not the writer's purpose to
indulge in a lengthy eulogy of the
beloved Dr. Gwaltney, for to do sd
would be like "gilding refined gold,
or painting the lily." His life spoke,
yea, speaks now, for itself. Though
he is with the saints in glory, he
shall still live here in Edgefield. To
generations that ?hall follow Dr.
Gwaltney will be held up as a para
gon of right living, an embodiment
of Christian virtues and graces of
Just as he was universally belov
