As friends in different parts of the
county have been so kind as to com

Make Public Statement.
The members of the state board of
education who are responsible for the
radical change in text books
have at last made a public statement
concerning their recent official acts.
We have carefully read the statement
which removes the cloud of suspicion
that was about to rest upon them be
cause of their continued silen -e.
Just as we have been inclined to be
lieve all along, their erring has been
one of judgment and not a preconceiv
ed plan to defraud the people or the
state by promoting personal ends as
members of the board.
As we see it now, the only thing for
which the board can be censured is
their disregard of the people's interest
by making so radical a change in the
text books to be used hereafter in the
public schools. Whenever the time ar
rives for the re-adoption of old, or
adoption of new books, some changes
should be made, but never so great a
number as 80 per cent of the old books
When it became apparent to the
members of the board that so many
of the old books, now in the possession
of parents, were being condemned,
practically destroyed, they should have
reflected seriously before voting to
substitute other and more expensive
Notwithstanding the statement of
the other members of the board in

to make for their action, we still think

Altogether Too Personal.
A colored citizen of a Georgia
town had provided on one occasion
a rare feast for a number of his
friends, among whom was included
the pastor of the Mount Calvary
c hurch, says the New York Press.
The piece de |resistance of this
banquet was a fine goose. "A fine
bird, Peter!" exclaimed the minis
ter, casting a sly glance at his host.
"As fine a bird as ever I see! where
did yo' git it."
The host suddenly took on an
added dignity. "Excuse me, sah,"
said he, "but dat 'pears like a
mighty pussonul question sah! When
yo' preaches a specially good ser
mon, sah, does I ever ask yo' where
yo' gits - it? Anyway sah, dat's a
triv'al matter, it seems to me."
Newsy Letter From Rehoboth.
Dear Advertiser: I will again

On Sunday last, quite a large
crowd attended services at Reho
both. It was our privilege to have
Dr. Derieux of Greenville with us.
In the morning he preached to a
crowded but attentive audience, his
text being from the 23rd Psalm,
"The Lord is my Shepherd." After
the church was filled to its utmost |
capacity, Jour pastor, Rev. J. T.
Littlejohn, seeing that a large
crowd still remained outside, gath
ered them beneath the oaks and
there preached to them.
In the afternoon, Dr. Derieux
preached a most excellent sermon
before the Woman's Missionary So-|
ciety, his text being taken from
Matthew's gospel. At the close of
the afternoon service, the ladies col
lected the little mite boxes which
were distributed among them some
months ago, and had an opening,
realizing the sum of $25.55. We
couldn't help but notice the bright
smile upon the face of our good
president, Miss Carrie Burkhalter,

was vary much pleased with the
collection. In fact, every member

acreage this fall.

A Correction Made.
Your typesetter is so gracious to
make anything at all out of my
chirography, I hesitate to ask for a
correction, but last week, the mis

his name to said prayer. I then

many a gem, etc." stating that the

Next Tuesday, July 18th, the
young people from the northern
half of Edgefield and from the
southern portion of Greenwood will
gather in the grove near Mr. J. J.
Griffiis' home for a day of pleasure.
All farm wonk being practically
over, the attendance will doubtless
be very large. Mr. Griffis is spar
ing no efforts or expense to have
everything in readiness. He has
become famous through the excel
lent dinners that he serves on these
annual occasions. A band will be
on hand to furnish music for the
dancers, and all who attend the
Griffis picnic will spend an exceed
ingly pleasant day.
Stock raisers who have not al
ready called should go at once to
the stables of Messrs. Wilson &
Cantelou and see their celebrated
stallion Free Giver. He represents
the highest type of horse flesh to be
found in this country. His record
for speed, his excellent qualities, his
adaptability for all purposes, his
size, perfect form and beautiful col
or, to say nothing of his thorough
bred sires and grand-sires, should
cause Free Giver to become very
popular among the stock raisers and
lovers of good horses in the county.
Messrs. Wilson & Cantelou should
receive the thanks of our people for
bringing at very great expense this
new blood into this section. Ask to
see Free Giver.
Members of the Harmony far
mers union are requested to meet
at Harmony, Friday 14th. Very im
portant business to be attended to.
A full attendance is desired.

Capt. Tom. S. Getzen, a son of
the Rev. Sammie Getzen, of sacred
memory, who has lived since the
war in Florida was here one day
last week on a visit to his cousin,
John C. Morgan and Mrs. Mollie
Cartledge. He told his friends many
war reminiscences, and said most of
his old comrades are dead, but he
would be delighted to see Henry
and Elbert Dobcy, Sam Horne and

Getzen has got rich in Florida,

A crowd left here in an automo

crowd consisted of Messrs. W. P.
and W. R. and and J. C. Parks, J.
and Luther Stone, R. N. Edmunds,
S. Ridlehoover, Warren Stone and
others from McCormick. They re
port a great meeting. Although
Tom Watson is erratic and cranky
on missions, he is not afraid of the
world, the flesh and the devil, and I
would be glad to see him elected to
the United Slates senate from Geor
gia. He is not afraid to expose the
rascals, who most of all dread pub
licity and for this reason, I would
like to see him go to the senate. The
only cure for political corruption,
in my opinion, is, publicity, and
this Tom Watson does with a mas
ter hand, though sometimes in dis
credit. Georgia could do worse
than send Tom Watson to the
United State's senate.

This standard bred Stallion will stand for services
at our stable. We will exercise utmost care in breed
ing mares, but we do most positively refuse to assume
any damages that may occur. Our risk is greater
than yours. Terms: $15.00 spot cash for season with
privilege of returning next season if horse is still in
our possession, or $25.00 to insure living foal. This
becomes due when mare is parted with or bred to
another animal. We reserve the right to reject any
or all mares.
