TEE LARGEST CIRCULATION DN
It is with our judgments, as with
our watches; no two/ just alike yet
each believes his own!-POPE.
T?je Advertiser would 'be satisfied
withfjust one slice from the mammoth
che?j?e weighing 12,000 pounds that VHS
recently.exhibited at the National Dai
ry Show in Chicago.
There will be no decline in Edgefield
dirt. In spite of the low price and
gloomy outlook for cotton, the land
sold at public outcry Monday brought)
good prices, in the main.
As long as the men persist in smok
ing fine cigars and enjoying luxuries
that are peculiarly their own, no objec
tion can be raised to the price paid for
the latest millinery creations by the
dear creatures. ?
The annual conference of the Meth
odist church of Soutn Carolina will
convene atBennettesville on November
,29th, with Bishop John G. Kilgo pre
siding. The Stale Baptist convention
wiil be held in Greenwood on December
For long-drawn-out trials, that of
McNamara now in progress in Los
Angeles will make a new record. It is
probable that several months will be
consumed in drawing a jury. Another
instance of "the 'aw's delay," due
chiefly-to legal red-tape.
An exchange remarks that President
Taft ';nas journeyed 300,000 miles on
government business." But wouldn't
it be more accurate to say the Presi
dent has traveled much of this distance
in the interest of the Republican par
ty? Wonder how much government bu
siness was attended to during the re
cent jaunt through the west?
The growing of tea in South Carolina
has passed the experimental state, and
it is probable that the production will
soon be increased to such an extent as
to become a real factor in the tea mar
ket During the present year 12,000
pounds of tea of the highest quality
-.fcas-been produced. South Carolina tea
has already become famous for its su
perior quality, selling for $1 per pound
at retail stores.
The upward tendency of the lard
market will doubtless cause cotton seed
oil to advance proportionately, Which,
in turn, should, cause farmers to realize
more for their cotton seed. Consider
ing the large yield, if cotton growers
were paid as high price this year foi
seed as they were last, it would not
matter much ' about the price of lint.
Maybe Burbank can yet be* induced to
produce a limitless variety of cotton.
Ty Cobb seems to be as great success
on the stage as on the diamond. The
theatrical company with which he is
now connected was peculiarly fortunate
in securing him before coming on its
southern tour. This young Georgia
athlete has always been a favorite
among the lovers of out-door sport,
and now that he is practically the
world's champion as a base ball player
his popularity has been ^greatly in
"There is a limit at which forbear
ance ceases to be a virtue," and, in
the matter of tipping, the traveling
men say the limit has been reached. It
is estimated, that the custom of tipping
hotel waiters, .bell bqys and porters has
levied an annual 'tax upon drummers
which aggregates something like $15,
000,000. Being driven to self-protec
tion, drummers in many sections will
refuse to patronize hotels that allow
their employes to accept tips.
Urging Curtailment of Fertilizers.
The State Farmers' Union is already
urging a curtailment of fertilizer pur
chases for next year. First, because
ot the price and, second, because ol
the residue now in the soil, a por
tion of this year's fertilizers being un
consumed by the growing crops.
What the outcome of this agitation
for a reduced consumption of commer
cial fertilizers will beean not be foretold
but this much is certain that farmers car
not afford to increase the fertilizer bur
den without first fortifying themselves
against low price cotton.? At the pre
vailing price of cotton the annual fer
tilizer debt of this state is too heavy.
'Farmers will have to return to th<
ways of their fathers, which is to make
more barn yard manure and supplement
this with commercial fertilizers.
. Will Improve The Advertiser.
For some time it has been the ambi
tion of the editor of The Advertiser t<
make the.paper all-home-print, discard
ingthe ready-print pages, but in th?
past the patronage has not warrantee
the large expenditure of money noces
sary to make the change. However,
wcouraged by the steady and substan
tial increase in patronage of the past
year, we have definitely decided t<
make the change. To this end. The
Advertiser has sold its old style prt'ss
and has purchased a larger and falter
press. Within u fortnight's time, as
soon as the new press arrives, the
change will be made and Edgefield will
launch as a permanency an ali-home
print newspaper, the equal of news
papers of larger towns, such as Green
wood and Newberry. I

was received by them from Mr.
Borner, the representative, stating
that they would have to arrange

The flower show which will be
held on this date, 11th, promises to
be good and the ladies are enthu

on Friday except the cut ones, and
the doors will be open on Saturday
until 10 o'clock for the flatter

open for the public. During the day
the D, of C. will serve a good tui

oysters, 35 cents.

Happenings in and Around
Here we are again and since we)
last wrote there has been a consid
erable change in the weather.
Most of the farmers are abouti
through harvesting and we don't
think if the price of cotton should
rise they would be so discouraged
with farming as most of the crops
turned out so much better than ex
pected this season?
The bank which has just been
gotten up here of late will open upi
in the old store which was last-run
by B. M. Bussey, property now of
C. H. Seigler. It has been remodled
ana painted, which makes it very
neat and comfortable looking. We
learn that Mr. A. V. Bussey will
be the president of the bank. Ac
cording to the faithfulness of Mr
Bussey in his position , that he has
just given up, we feel that they
could not succeed in getting a
better president? /
Mr. A. V. Bussey is having his ]
house painted and we learn that
the church will soon be newly
painted. We hope some one else
will do likewise. The appearance
of our little town is certainly im

Modoc are anticipating taking

Mrs. P. B. Bussey has bean on
the sick list for the past few days,
but we are glad to report that she
is much better now.
Second Trip to Market.
Mr. W. H. Turner always keeps
abreast of the procession. He is
never satisfied unless he has the lat
est novelties and the newest things
in all kinds of merchandise for the
patrons of the Corner Store. In order
to keep his stock supplied with
everything new he makes a second
or mid-season trip to market. He is
off this week on his second trip for
th?? fall and winter season. While
away he expects to "pick up" some
bargains in etable merchandise.
