The Beautiful Triplets.
Wherever the three little girls,
triplets, of Mr. and Mrs. W- F.
.Vance go, they are always the cen

Thursday and on every hand they

greatly admired by old and young.
Their names are Effie, Eva and
Ethel. They are all the same size,
look alike and are always dressed
alike. The wonder is how even their
parents can tell one from the other.
' Well Kept Cemetery,
While passing Philippi church
Saturday the editor of The Adverti

impressed with the excellent man

iron fence and every portion seems
to receive constant attention. We

With the heavy shipping season
practically over, the Clark's Hill
peach growers can now take a rest,
and incidentally figure out their net
profits. While much fine fruit has
been grown this year, shippers say
the season has not been altogether
satisfactory. Peaoues have not
commanded prices that comported
with their very excellent quality.
This was especially true of the
Elbertas, the supply at the time be
ing greater than the demand. Mr.
L. G. Bell, one of the Clark's Hill
peach growers, told the writer Sun
day^hat he shipped 250 crates last
season and made more money
on them than he did on G50 crates
this year. From these figures one
can iojtn some idea of how unsatis
factory the season has beeti.
