While money makes the mare go, it
also blocks the wheels of justice. But
for his wealth, W. T. Jones, the Union
wife murderer, would have been hang
ed or consigned to the penitentiary two
or three years ago. Had he been a ne
gro or poor white man the sentence
would have been enforced so long ago
that the public would practically have
forgotten the details of the heinous
crime, which he committed, yet Jones
sits quietly in jail making, through nis

hope that he may yat evade the stripes.

Every Shoulder te the Wheel.
To the end that the fair next fall
shall be the best yet held, the members
of the county fair association met Mon
day and began actual work for the
fair. The officers of the association
and the men who are in direct charge
bf the management are greatly en
couraged and enthused over the out
look for the fair of 1911. The grounds
are better improved : and better equip
ped than heretofore and it is believed
that th 5 people generally will take
more interest in the fair n?xt fall than
they have done in the past. Let it be
known once for ali that the county fair,
although pronounced a success in the
past, can never be the success that it
should be until the farmers themselves
give.it fuller support. It is primarily
and essentially an agricultural fair,
organized for the avowed and specific
purpose of developing the agricultoial'
interests of the county, yet unfortu
nately for some reason but few far
mers have heretofore taken an active
interest in the fair. However, we
have good reason to believe that such
will notbe the case in the future.
If what has been accomplished in ^he
past can be done with the support of
only a few farmers, think of what are
the vast possibilities of success with
the support and co-operation of hun
dreds of representative farmers.
We appeal to th? farmers-being
tempted to call half a hundred by
hame-to put their sleouliers to the
wheel and let's make the fair of 1911
the best-very best-county fair held
in the state, lt can be done.
Very Interesting Meeting at
Modoc. Johnston and The
For Their Enterprise.
On last Tuesday night, I attend
ed one of the most interesting- meet
ings it was ever'my privilege to at
tend, and I have been in som<? good
ones. This meeting was held at the
hospitable home of Mr. J. O. Mar
shall of Modoc, under the auspices
of the Woman's Missionary Socie
ty of the Baptist church. It was a
public meeting, and the Bible
study class of Clark's Hill, con
sisting of Mr. and Mrs. Sales, Mrs.
Leggat and daughter, Mrs. Laura
Bunch, Mrs. Stackhouse and oth
ers, whose names I do not recall,
came up to assist the good warnen
of Modoc in this meeting. The ex
ercises were good, real eye-openers,
and we do so much wish our good
anti-missionary friends could have
been present to have gotten the facts
and figures as presented, especially
by the Rev. and Mrs. Sales. We
respectfully invite these good peo
ple of the mission study class of
Clark's Hill to Parksville, and as
sure them, that our hearts and
homes are wide open to them. The
only thin;, to mar the pleasures of
the occasion was the extreme ill
ness of Mr and Mrs. J. 0.
Marshall's sweet little babe of a
few months. We hope the little
one, fctill quite sick, may be spared
to their devoted parents.
We have heard it whispered that
there is a probability of the vicin
age of Parksville joining in the re
quest to join in Greenwood. We do
hope for the present, this report is
not true, for we do long for the
time to come to vote again in old
Edgefield. Truly, we want a chance
to vote again so bad. Well, we are,
some of us, just hankering for an
other vote. We think we can im
prove the public service, at least
we want to call some of our so-call
ed public servants to taw. We are
just dying to vote.
Where, oh where, is the county's
chain gang. It has been absent from
this part of the public domain un
til the sight of it would be a show
to some. Here children have been
born, /taught to crawl, walk and
talk, since the chain gang has been
among us. To these children, the
first sight of the chain gang would
be quite a show, causing them to
discuss for a long time the quaint
ness of this public institution. Let
the chain gang come, if for no other
purpose, than to teach the children
now coming on in the Dark Corner,
what Edgefield has.
We are sorry to report that Mr.
Sampson Strom, formerly of Edge
field, but now of McCormick, Mrs.
Mattie Strom and Mrs. Sudie Stone,
of Rehoboth arc on the sick list.
Miss Annie McDonald who has
been visiting her sister, Mrs. Joe
weeks has returned 'home bringing
Mrs. Branson and little Cathleen
with her. To say that many were
proud to have Miss Annie return is
to put it mildly.
Misses Sallie Parks and Barbie
Christian worshipped yesterday
with the Plum Branch saints.
Misses Kathleen Parks, Claudia
Barrett, Myrtle Garrett and Mr.
Robert Bussey worshipped with the
Modoc Christianity Sunday.
We were blessed with a nice rain
Saturday night, which was greatly
:eeded, and will greatly help little
corn and cotton, though not enough
for smail grain. We are sorry to
say, that small grain in our locality
is sorry. The best we have seen is
the crop of Mr. W. W. Fowler,
who is developing into a first*class
Before we close, we desire to pull
off our hat to the Edgefield Adver
tiser, and to the goodly city of
Johnston, both for enterprise, the
one in doing things worth telling,
and the other.in telling it in an inter
esting way. We remember John
ston when there was only one store,
kept by Capt. Tom Jones, and a
shack of a depot, and we are by no
means an old mau; when the sur
rounding country was considered a
barren sand bed, etc., but look at
her magnificent churches, stores,
residences, etc., well calculated to
excite the envy of older towns. We
pull our hat and bow very low to
Johnston, to her people, who are
God-fearing and law-loving having
possibly the best governed, dryest
town of its size in the state.
TheB. Y. P. JJ. last night was
well attended, and we especially en
joyed the solo rendered by Mrs.
Margaret Wales. Mrs. Wales is an
accomplished pianist, and is always
helpful to our young people.
Dr. and Mrs. W. G. Blackwell
are off for a few days visiting rela
tives and friends in Columbia. We
hope for them a happy visit, and
safe return. More Anon.
Death of Sweet Little Babe.
The writer was deeply pained
yesterday afternoon to receive the
information of the death of the lit
tle babe of Mr. and Mrs. .'. 0.
Marshall of Modoc, which occurred
Monday night. Our heart goes out
to the bereaved parents. All that
human skill and loving attention
could do to prolong the life of the
dear little one was done but to no
avail. Jesus w ho bade the little one
to His bosom. Just why jhe only
child of the fond parents should be
taken we can not understand now
but it will be revealed at that day.
Modoc Missionary Society.
As we have some two or three
different correspondents from our
town, I will not interfere as I only
want to say a few words in behalf
of our ladies' missionary work in
our community. "We had on the
9th a very interesting meeting at
Mrs. J. O. Marshall's for" the pur
pose of organizing a mission study
class which would be beneficial not
only to our society but to all
who may take a part in it, and most
especially all who do not believe in
such work. I wish that all could
have been present and heard the talk
Mrs. Sales from Clark's Hill gave
us on mission work. Mr. Sales also
enlightened us very much on differ
ent subjects. We all enjoyed the
meeting and after it was over re
freshments were served. I am sure,
notwithstanding Mr. and Mrs. Mar
shall's baby was quite sick, we all
enjoyed their hospitality. Mrs. Mar
shall is always ready to do all she
can for the benefit of her church
and Saviour. Their baby has been
quite sick for ten days and is very
sick yet. The good people of Modoc
who all are always ready to lend a
helping hand have been kind to
offer every assistance. They have a
trained nurse now to assist them
and we hope to see a change for
better. We all extend our deepest
sympathy to the anxious parents for
their little one.
I will not take up all the news as
I said my subject was only on mis
sion work this week.We want to get
up our mission study class at our
earliest convenience and want all,
old and young, men and boys, to
join us. We are also glad to say
we organized a young people's un
ion on last Sunday night at our
church. There are a number of
young people in our community
and we hope they will take an inter
est and see who can be the most
help in all such work. Sunshine.

The nission study class of which
mention was made last week met
as appointed at Mrs. Sharpton's and
was a decided ( success. A large
crowd was put and deep interest
was manifested through the entire
program. One of the features of the
evening was a map journey by Mrs.
S?le who took us from Augusta,
Ga., to China, telling us of many
interesting things, not only about
the trip over but also of the mis
sionaries and their work. At the
close she made a strong appeal for
the famine sufferers and was re

are all much interested in our mis

Miss Turner's Recital.
Miss ! Madge Turner gave her
graduating recital in music Friday
evening. In her faultless rendition
of several difficult selections from
the old masters, she revealed a very
high order of musical talent which
has been developed to an unusual
degree by her persistent toil through
the years since her childhood. In
her relation to the S. C. C. L Miss
Madge occupies a unique and very
enviable position, holding three di
plomas, representing the literary,
vocal and instrumental music de
partments. Col. Bailey in announc
ing that this is the first time in the
history of the institution that a
young lady had won three diplomas
commended Miss Madge for her
diligence and faithfulness as a stu
dent since matriculating.
Variety was given to the program
by exceedingly well rendered reci
tations by Miss Florence Peak and
Miss Gladys Rives. When the
names of these two bright lasses ap

(Speecn before naval cadets, Flens

I will give yon in addition, some
advice upon a question which, in
the interest of the nation, I have
very much at heart, the question of
alcohol and of driuking.
I know very well that pleasure in
drinking is an old heritage of the
Germans, bot we must, by self-dis
cipline, free ourselves from that
I can assure you that in the
course of my reign of 22 years, I
have observed from experience that
of the great numbei of crimes which
have been appealed to me for decis
ion, nine-tenths were due to alcohol.
Formerly, it used to be consider
ed a very smart thing for youth to
take and carry a great quantity of
alcohol, and I myself, as a young
officer, had occasion to see such ex
amples, but never imitated them.
Those ideas belong to the Thirty
Years' War and no longer fit our
Without speaking of the results
of drink, which , I do not need to
describe, I wish to call your atten
tion, especially, to one efi"ect of in
temperance which touches your fu
ture profession. As you will ob
serve for yourselves, in the course
of your service on shipboard, naval
service demands a height of effort
which is hardly possible to surpass.
It is necessary that you be able to
endure this continual heavy strain
without exhaustion in order to bjfi
fresh for emergencies.
The next war and the nexfcnaval
?bj&tle^will demand^of^you gound
nerves. Nerve power will decide the
victory. Now, the nerves are under
mined and endangered from youth
up by the use of alcohol.
Later, you will have opportunity
to see the target ships and the -effect
of modern projectiles upon vessels,
and from this you will be able to
form an idea of the condition in a
battle. If you are in one, you will
see frightful devastation and a mul
titude of things happening. Victory
will lie with the nation that uses
the smallest amount of alcohol.
That, gentlemen, must be your po
sition. Then through yqu the troops
will be shown an example, and that
goes farthest with the men.
Therefore, this is what I expect
from you-that here in the naval
academy or on shipboard, in all
comradeship and i.iendliness, which
need not suffer in any thereby, you
watch yourselves and each other in
this regard, that you do not count
the use of alcohol one of your privi
There are in the navy in the
course of formation or already form
ed, Good Templar Lodges and Blue
Cross societies. Many officers and
some hundreds of men belong to
them. I hope that you will do every
thing which you can to persuade
the men to join. I do not need to
call your attention to the example
of the British navy, where 20,000
officers and men already belong to
these societies, to the very great
benefit of the navy.
This is a matter of very great
importance to our navy and to our
people. If you train the troops to
renounce alcohol, I shall have sound
and sane subjects. This is a matter
of great future importance, for the
men when they leave the service
will carry the thought back to the
whole country. If you will uphold
these principles, it will uplift the
people morally. I pray for your co
