THE LARGEST CIRCULATION IN
WEDNESDAY, MAY 3, 1911.
Great names debase, instead of
raising those who know n6t how to
As to The ^Advertiser's circulation,
the figures, published from our sub
scription books, which are open to in
spection, speak for themselves.
As usual, cotton advanced before the
passing of planting time. But South
ern farms have grown too wise to be
longer deceived by this ruse of specu
The Hon. Thomas E. Watson has
been finding sticks of dynamite lying
8 round his farm, which he believes
were placed there by some of his ene
mies. Another penalty of greatness!
The Advertiser extends sincere con-1
gratulations to the Greenwood Journal
upon the success that it is achieving as
a daily. We see no reason why a town
as large, aggressive and prosperous as
Greenwood should not support a daily.
Can it be possible that the day is
coming when there will be a plethora
of mo:iey in South Carolina? The fact
that a Columbia bank loaned the State
$500,000 at three per cent interest a
few days ago at least indicates that
money will be much cheaper in a few
years than the prevailing rate of in
Glad Day Coming.
It was a fortunate day for the agri
cultural interests of Edgefield county
when the farm demonstration work
was inaugurated. Already scores of
farmers have become greatly enthused
over the acres sat apart for demon
stration purposos. It will not be many
years before entire farms wil^ receive
the close attention that these "pet"
acres are receiving now. Then we ex- j
peet to see our old county blossom as
the rose. Certainly the hard-working j
people of our rural districts desarve to
receive larger returns for their labor.
And the glad day is coming when they j
will-our word for if.
Increase the Corn Acreage.
Now that the cotton crop has been
planted and the early corn has been
worked-practically male for that
matter, if the ground was well pre
pared-let all of the forces of the farm
be directed toward increasing the corn
acreage. Do not take chances on buy
ing western corn next spring. It may
kill your stock and will certainly re
duce your cash.
Prepare now for a second crop or
late planting of corn. A drought may
catch the old corn in a critical stage
and cause it to be practically a failure.
Better insure an ample yield by plant
ing largely of a late crop.
Having no funds with which to meet
such an expense, the board of county
commissioners refused at their regular
meeting yesterday to pay the salary of
the special constable appointed by Gov- ]
ernor Blease some time ago. We think
the board acted wisely in refusing to ]
pay the $60.
In the first place, no provision was
made for a special constable's salary in
fixing the levy for the year, and in the
second place it is a needless expense.
At times the magistrates and sheriff
may need outside assistance to appre
hend violators of the dispensary law,
but certainly there is no need to have I
such an extra officer on duty the entire |
So far as.we are informed, no request
was sent to the governor from the peo
ple of this county asking that a
special constable be put on duty here.
We believe that fully ninety per cent of |
the tax payers will commend the board
for refusing to allow this claim of $601
Mission Institute of Western Di
vision of South Carolina.
The mission society at Edgefield
had been anticipating for more than
two months the coming of the Insti
tute for the Western Division, and
Monday morning on the first train,
the delegates began to arrive, com-1
ing in on each train and through
the country until Tuesday morning.
The enrollment of delegates showed
sixty-one in attendance other than
those from Edgefield.
The first session began Monday
night at 8:30 o'clock, the church
being filled with women. The meet
ing was in charge of Miss Sallie
May Burton of Batesburg, Vice
Pres. of the Western Division, and
the devotions were conducted by
Mrs. Harris of Troy. Much regret
was expressed at the absence of Mrs.
I. W. Wingo, State Pres. of the j
South Carolina W. M. U., who was
detained on account of the illness of j
Mrs. C. E. Watson, of Green- j
ville, has been a pioneer in our state
in the work, having been among the
first in our state which was itself
among the very first of all the
states, to take up this work. Her
experience and wisdom have made
her eminently capable of being of
great assistance to the societies, and
her talk on "Tiie Bible and Prayer
in the life of tht Mission Society"
was very instructive and helpful.
"Organization and aims of the Sun
beam Band" was discussed in .Mrs.
Hatcher's characteristic and inter
esting style. This was followed by
an open discussion of various prob
lems of the Mission Society work.
Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock
the meeting was assembled again
with devotional service in charge of
Mrs. T. R. Denny of Johnston.
Mrs. A. L. Crutchfield state cor
responding secretary of the Wo
man's Missionary Union made a
most instructive and ?loquent ad
dress on "Fifty Years of Woman's
Work for Foreign Missions."
Mrs. C. E. Watson followed this
with "Some Probl?me of society
work and how to solve them." At
this time the meeting was divided
into two conferences, one led by
Mrs. W. J. Hatcher demonstrating
her methods of work as Superinten
dent of the Young People's work.
She also outlined a Junior Mission
Study class. At the same time iu
the Sunday School rooms, Mrs.
Crutchfield conducted an outline of
mission study with the book South
ern Baptist Foreign Missions" as
the basis. Mrs. T. R. Denny told
in a very interesting manner of
their method of conducting a class
in this text book at Johnston. An
open discussion on Sunbeam work
followed these conferences, lad by
At the close of the morning ses
sion, dinner, very abundant and de
lightful was served on the grounds
adjacent to the church. The breth
ren had been invited to participate
in this part of the feast, and those
who came were fully repaid, both
in the dinner, and the hospitality
which the ladies of the Institute,
manifested to them.
At the afternoon service the de
votions were conducted by Mrs.
Chas. P. Robinson of Chapin. and
the ''Organization and aims of Roy
al Ambassadors" was most enthu
siastically presented by Mrs. Hatch
er. "Our service through personal
effort ' was illustrated by chart by
Mrs. Watson, followed by an open
The Institute was the most suc
cessful held this season, and was
well attended. Delegates were pres
ent from Abbeville, Greenwood,
Bamberg, Johnston, Trenton, Salu
da, Batesburg. Greenville, Spartan
burg, Lexington, Ridge Spring,
Wards, and many of the country
churches. Edgefield association had
full delegations from a number of
the churches, but it was regretted
that some soci?tie*? were not repre
sented at all. Altogether it was a
very profitable and happy occasion.

the typical Southern home of Sena
tor and Mrs. Tillman. The entire
lower floor of the stately mansion,
including the broad verandas, was
brilliantly lighted and decorated in
the most befitting manner. As the
gue?ts crossed the threshold of this
hospitable home they were welcomed
with a cordiality that is peculiar to
thc old homes of our Southland.
A scene so exquisitely beauti
ful as to baffle any attempt at a de
scription, was the rear dining room
arranged for the bridal party The
color scheme was yellow and white,
Senator Tillman's garden, the .ip
ple of his eye for many years, hav
ing contributed its richest and
choicest lilies as the chief decora
tion. About this heavily laden and
beautifully adorned table, the brid
al party of twenty-fopr were seated.
Here as nowhere else good cheer,
sparkling wit and repartee pre
vailed. At the conclusion of the
beautifully served repast, the bride's
cake was cut, the ring, falling to
Miss Sophie Tillman.
The other guests were served
from a long table on the broad
piazza which was brilliantly lighted
with Japanese lanterns. Edgefield
people are accustomed to great
feasts, but their eyes never beheld
such a superabundance of nice
things as were served on this nup
tial occasion. Not only was the
princely wedding supper beautifully
prepared, but everyone marveled at
the ease with which the great
throng of guests were served.
Another room that presented an
unusual sight was the library in
which the innumerable presents
were arranged on large tables.
Friends from all parts of the coun
try, many of whom could not be
present, evidenced their abiding
love for the bride and groom in a
tangible manner. Prominent among
this almost endless array of cut
glass, gold and silverware, was a
chest of heavy silver, the gift of the
The bride and groom accompa
nied by several friends went over
to Augusta in an automobile for the
night, leaving the next morning foi
Tallulah Falls, where they will
spend several weeks at the home of
a friend of Mrs. Mo'ore. After the
first of June they will be at home to
their friends in Atlantic City, N. J.
In recent years, as well as in
years gone by, Edgefield homes
have been thrown wide open on wed
ding occasions, as well as for other
functions, but with one accord those
who attended the Tillman-Moorewed
ding have unanimously given it first
place among them all-First in its
grandeur and surpassing elegance,
and first in the beautiful spirit th at
characterized the occasion.
Among the out of town guests at
the wedding were:
Mrs. Moore and Miss Moore,
mother and sister of the groom,
from Atlantic City, N. J.; Mrs.
Victoria D. Lee, from Abbeville,
S. C.; Mrs. Jesse W. Tobey, of New
York; Mrs. Sarah M. Gower, of

Neighborhood News From Red
Yesterday being the fifth Sunday
and a kind of off day in the regular
church service caused us to have a
small crowd at Sunday school.
However, those who came out en
joyed being there.
Rev. J. T. Littlejohn, Donald
Smith, Miss Sallie Smith and C. M.
Mellichamp were the only represen
tatives of our church at Mt. Zion
Saturday and Sunday. This was an
unusually small representation of
Red Hill church but last week was
a busy week with the farmers and
the horses and mules w?re too tired
to be driven such a long distance on
Sunday. Those who attended report
a good meeting. The next union in
this division will be held Avith the
Ebenezer church at Trenton on the
29th and 30th of July. There will
very likely be a large crowd there
from Red Hill Hill as at this season
the farmers will probably have some

This is a new undertaking and

studying the lessons we have
splendid opportunity to discuss the
various improvements needed in our
Sunday school system and as teach

with each other and each others
