THE LARGEST CIRCULATION IN
EDGEFIELD. COUNTY. \,
As men of sense and genius say
much in few words, so on the other
hand the weak and foolish speak
much and say little.-ROCHEFOU
It is to be hoped that the hookworm
is not as prevalent in this county as
the "army" worm is now.
A negro lad was lynched at Honea <
Path Tuesday night by an infuriated
body of citizens for assaulting a little <
orphan girl of tender age.

Patrick Walsh by the erection of a 1
suitable bronze statue. Augusta will 1

The "army" worm might have beena [ i
blessing had it appeared earlier over the
entire cotton belt and curtailed the yield
by one-third. Farmers would not only
save the work of gathering a large crop
but would doubtless realize a larg
er net profit from the small yield. .

for a little waif left on a citizen's door

At one time gold was dc jtless re
garded as the most valuable metal or
substance, giving rise to the expres
sion, "worth its weight in gold." But
in recent years gold has had to take a
subordinate place. Platinum, for in
stance, is? selling on the market for
$47.50 an once while gold is only worth
$20 an ounce.
If, as a result of the war now wag
ing in the East, Turkey is hereafter to
become the dumping ground for Italy's
overflow population, instead of Ameri
ca. we have cause for rejoicing even i
the conflict has caused cotton to- de
cline a few points. The bomb-throw
ing class of immigrants, who are
menace to society wherever they are
foand, generally come from Italy.
The total money in circulation in the
United States amounted to $3,242,715
on October 1st, which would be $34.35
for each man, woman and child. Un
fortunately, the farmer who planted
for 15 cents cotton and is forced to sell
for less than 10 will not be able to
claim his portion of the" per capita cir
culation. Instead of having a cash
balance in his pocket he will be ex
tremely fortunate if he doesn't owe
the "other fellow."
As a result of the eternal vigilance
of Commissioner Watson the quality of
western meal that is being shipped in
to this state is said to be much improv
ed. This is only one of the many valua
ble achievements of Mr. Watson. And
ye; some would have his office abolished.
Edgefield's Greatest Need.
It can not be denied that Edgefield's
greatest need now is additional rail
road facilities. From the day of its
founding up to about twenty years ago
the town was handicapped by having
no railroad connection. While of course
the present railway facilities are bet
ter than none, yet the disadvantages
of being at the end of a spur track or
branch road are too evident, as well as
too numerous, to need mentioning. In
the main, the Southern railway compa
ny has shown Edgefield greater con
sideration than many roads under simi
lar circumstances would have done,
but a competing line, an outlet leading
north, is what is needed now.
An opportunity is presented for our
people to "unbottle" themselves ..by,
securing the road from Greenville to
Augusta, which seems to be a certain
ty. In order to reach Augusta from
Greenville via Greenwood the road
must of necessity, pass somewhere
through Edgefield county, and we con
fidently believe that the people Of the
town, with the co-operation bf those
along the proposed route, can'bring the
road by the county seat.
Let the people of the town of Edge
field bear this in mind, and may they
be impressed with its truth and im
portance: That if this road is built and
does not come by Edgefield it will be
many, very many, long years before
another railroad can be secured for
Edgefield. It is now or never, which
should cause our people to act at
once. . .
To the Patrons of the Colored Pub
lic School of Edgefield Village:
On account of the scarcity of la
bor, and the fields are still white
with cotton; we have decided.not
to open the public School until the
first Monday in November. As we
are to have all new Teachers the
parents are requested and urged to
bring their children on the above
named day, in person.

Death of Mrs. Sheppard.
The dispatch announcing the
death ol Mrs. O. Sheppard, Tr.,
which occured Monday morning at
her home in Atlanta, caused much
genuine sorrow among her relatives
and friends in Edgefield. While
Mrs. Sheppard had been in delicate
health for many ninths,..no one
here knew that she had grown sud
denly worse. For that reason the
3hock was intensified. She was a
sweet-spirited, lovable Christian
woman. Mrs. Sheppard was the
second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.
C. Mobley of Johnston. The burial
took place in the cemetery at John
ston Tuesday afternoon. Besides
her devoted young husband, Mrs.
Sheppard leaves two ' sweet little
