Card Concerning Electric Light
To the citizens of Edgefield.
Those of you who appreciate the
fact that we live in the progressive
year, nineteen hundred and eleven,
and that time has changed the
modes and customs of half a cen
tr. ry ago, those of you who appr?
cia >. the needs of today.
Fifty years ago? to have intro
duced electric lights at the offer of
to-day would have been absurd; but
it will be just aa absurd to reject
them today as i;, would have been
? have accepted them in eighteen
hundred and sixty one..
Edgefield needs the lights and
must have them.
Should the Johnston light and
power businessT he merged into a
corporation, and Edgefield take half
the stock, which is ?15,000 the two
towns could be lighted, at almost
the samo expense of, ono; for one
electrical engineer could superin
tend both towns, tlie same condi
. S apply to a line-man and a fire
Whereas if we were s?panle
-si,sou wculj go to expense, other
wise il goes to profit rather than ex
Edgeleld should take half inter
est in the corporation,and iftherevo
n . fr ?rn the individual patronage
be in proportion to Johnston, tho
yearly proceeds wonld be at least
10,300 with an expense of ?3,000,
which leaves ?7,800 and this amount
would pay for your street lights,
pay the interest on the ?15,000 bor
rowed to invest ac Hr/o, and leave
?150. This business is in its infan
cy, and is growing rapidly for this
month's advance over last month is
?50.00. A two town business is far
better than a one-town business and
.von aro offered half interest in a
better business than a one town
plant. Think well.

It was the writer's privilege to
spend Suiiday al the home of Mr.
and Mrs. V.'. T. Walton, near
Johns;.wi. At our request Mr. "Wal
ton showed us over Iiis farm, stroll
ing leisurely from field to field.
This ideal farm presents the ap
pearance of a large, well kept gar
den; We have no hesitancy in say
ing thal thc fields have been better
prepared for cotton and com than
90 per cent of the vegetable jrardens
in the county. Mr. Walton iias al
ready planted his corn, only seven
acres. But on this he expects to
make 500 bushels. All of his colton
laud is almost ready for the planter.
Nothing is more inspiring to one
who has an inherent love for the
farm thnn to hear Mr. Walton in
his modest way tell of bis past and
pi-esent achievements upon . his
farm. He is not given to talking
much'but by plying him with ques
tions, as a lawyer would a witness
upon the stand, one finally succeeds
in securing a large fund of inform?
tion from him.
Mrs. Walton is easily one of the
best houskeepers in the county and
served a meal that would delight a
king. Not only does Mr. Walton
bountifully supply his pantry from
his farm and garden but has provid
ed the home with every possible I
comfort and convenience. It will in
spire anyone to visit the delightful!
home of Mr. and Mrs. Walton..

The editor of The Advertiser had
a brief conversation with Mr. P\ N.

the outlook for the farm demonstra

has accepted the position and has
entered enthusiastically upon his
work. Already he has enrolled^
about twenty farmers who have
signified a willingness and desire to
cultivate an acre under the direc

is very enthusiastic over the wo^rk,
having put heart, soul and body in
