On account* of sickness Rev. P.
P. Blalock could not fill the engage
ment which he made to preach in
the First Baptist church au Orange
burg Sunday. He was taken sick
Friday and "his physician advised
him to cancel the engagement,
stating thatrit would be exceedingly
unwise and imprudent to go to Or
Trenton's Floral Fair.
The annual floral fair will be
held at Trenton Saturday next in
the old Methodist church. Turkey
dinner will be served as heretofore
for the benefit of the cemetery. The
Trenton ladies are noted for both
their fine flowers and fsumptous
feasts, so all who go will enjoy the
day thoroughly. The Advertiser be
speaks for these good ladies a gen
New Firm Progressive.
H?d not the rain interfered with
his plans, Mr. Lovick Smith, the
popular manager of the Smith-Marsh
Company, would have had a beauti
ful float in the parade for his firm.
The float was partially built but the
inclement weather made it unwise to
expose the expensive merchandise
that was to be used in the decora
tions. Mr. Smith says his firm will
have a place in next year's parade.
He realizes that it is a splendid op
portunity to do some effective ad
vertising, as well as contributing to
the success of the fair.
The Amateur Races.
The amateur races that were held
at the fair (these being altogether
devoid of objectionable features)
Friday afforded pleasant diversion
for those who like to see "fleet
footed horse flesh in action."
The first was Oantelou & Wil
son's "Free Giver" against Mr. B.
B. Jones' bay. The former won.
The second was Dr. J. H. Carmi
chael's horse against Dr. A. H.
Corley's gray, the latter being de
clared the winner.
The third was Mr. B. L. Miras'
horse against Col. P. B. Mayson's
thoroughbred, the latter winning.
The fourth was Col. May so Q'S
against Dr. Corley's gray, the gray
being the winner.
A Series of Sermons.
Dr. M. D. Jeffries announced
Sunday morning that he has planned
to preach? a series ol Sunday evening
sermons on ten young men of the
Bible. The first of the series upon
"Jacob, the grasping young man,"
was preached Sunday evening last
and has boen very favorably com
mented upon. Dr. Jeffries' subject
for next Sunday night will be
"Esau, the easy-going young man."
The Sunday evening service may be
varied from time to time by occa
sionally using other themes than
one from the series above mention
ed. Dr. Jeffries very earnestly de
sires that the young people of the
town hear these special sermons.
Much will be said also that will be
of value to the older people.

The Annual Parade.
That the almost continuous down
pour last Friday made the holding
of the parade impossible that after
noon was very generally regretted.
Some who had planned floats and
rigs had to give them up altogether
on account of the unfavorable
weather, and it appeared for a time
that the parade would have to be
abandoned entirely. But, undaunt
ed by rebuffs, discouragements and
adverse conditions, the ladies who
had labored so assiduously from the
outset for its success would not let
it fail. Announcing the parade for
Saturday afternoon, the ladies of
the parade committee got together
all of the rigs, floats,school wagons,
etc., that had not been injured by
the rain and held an exceedingly
creditable parade, one that would
do credit to a muoL largor place
With Capt. W. A. Collett as
marshal of the day the parade was
formed in the Evans grove in the
Mounted squad from Edgefield
Rifles. Commissioned officers of the
S. C. C. I. momnted. Horse back
riders, Miss Bessie Woodson with
Master James Hart, 1st prize; Miss
Mamie Cheatham with Master Oscar
Cheatham. The Advertiser's decor
ated vehicle. Trades display of
Beaver Dam Mill, 1st prize. Lott
school wagon, 2nd prize. Beaver
Dam school, 1st prise. Decorated
rigs, Misses Edwardina Blalock and
Josephine Woodson 1st prize, Miss
Janie Harris and Dr. A. H. Corley.
Child's rig, Master Irvin Padgett
and Miss Ouida Pattison, represent
ing "Uncle Sam" and "Miss Co
lumbia" 1st Drize. Wagon of c'owns;
Float of U. D. C., and float of Dix
ie Chapter, auxiliary of U. D. C.
1st prize. A prettily decorated auto
mobile representing Capt. Bright's
moving picture show was the lait to
enter the parade.
Although they were not awarded
a prize on their exquisitely beauti
ful rig, Miss Harris and Dr. Corley
were showered with compliments.
The child's rig was also a centre
of admiration. Not only was the lit
tle turn-out decorated in the best of
taste but the costumes and demean
or of the occupants were faultless.
The fair association is under last
ing obligations to the members of
the parade committee for the valua
ble services which were so unselfish
