The electric light commission
purchased an engine aud generator
Monday but did not have sufficient
information at hand to warrant]
placing orders for the poles and
wire. These will be purchased in a
week or ten days. Work of install
ing tue pla lit will begin as soon as
the material arrives, but as the bad
weather of winier will retard the
progress, the lights will hardly be
turned on before next March. -jThs
members of the commission are pro
ceeding cautiously so as to get the
best possible returns from the money
realized from the recent bond issue.
Advertising Has Paid Him.
Mr. Jesse F. Ouzts, Jr., the en
terprising manager of the W. M.
ifcJ.T.Ouzts Co. was told som? time
ago that his large advertisements in
our columns would not be profitable,
but his experience has been to the
contrary. In a letter of a few days
Mr. Ou-its stated that his October
business this year, with cotton at
niue cents, was *>l,u72 more than it j
was last October, with cotton selling
then at 14 cents. This unusual
increase he attributes to the advertis
ing done iti our columus. He has
also bought more counlry produce
than a yearago. Mr. Ouzts sold Mr.
Y. M. Faulkner $110 worth of j
chickens and eggs last week, all
being one week's purchases. We di
rect attention to Mr. Ouzts' adver
tisement in this issue.

Among the recent visitors in
Edgefield were Mr. and Mrs. J. Ca
rey Lamar of North Augusta who
were accompanied by their daugh
ter, Miss Sadi. Lamar, and son,
John Carey, Jr. While here they
were guests of Mrs. Mamie N. Till
man. Mrs. Lamar is very pleasant
ly remembered as Miss Lollie Ad- j
dison by her Edgefield friends, who
always greet her most affectionate
ly when 6he comes among us. Be
sides having other large business in
terests in Augusta, Mr. Lamar is
one of the leading real estate deal
ers of that city. They came to
Edgefield in their new Cole auto
mobile, which was easily one of j
the handsomest cars that has been
in Edgefield for some time. Mr.
and Mrs. Lamar will attend the
automobile races in Savannah the
latter part of the month in their

county fair. Let it be borne in mind
that the bigger and better thc fair is
made, the larger will be the benefits
that accrue all along the line.
An Elegant Reception.
Dr. and Mrs. Jeffries have been
very cordially received/ since their
arrival in Edgefield, and have had
many tangible evidences of their
hearty welcome, but on Monday af
ternoon at the home of Mrs. A. A.
Woodson, an opportunity was pre
sented at which many of the people
Of our town might together give
special greetings to this already be
loved pastor and his family, Mrs.
Jeffries, and the two gracious young
daughters, Misses Anna and Rose.
Representatives from all the de
nominations were present to add
The color scheme for the decora
tions was pink and green, and a
most original effect was made in all
the reception rooms, having varied
designs and sizes of baskets all fill
ed with pink roses and green. Vir
ginia creeper and Dorothy Perkins
roses were the trailing vines which
were most tastefully arranged in the
reception roora where the pastor
and the receiving party stood. The
idea of ?South Carolina and Virgin
ia being united on this occasion was
carried out in the souvenir cards
which had a pen and ink drawing,
representing South Carolina ana
Virginia with hands clasped.
Vocal music by Miss Eliza Mims,
Mrs. Maner Lawton and Mrs. R. G.
Shannonhouse was a most enjoyable
?feature of the afternoon. Each roora
and hallway was most beautifully
decorated in magnificent pot plants
aud trailing vines, and lovely flow
ers, and the hostess was most pro
fusely complimented for the ex
quisite taste everywhere displayed.
As the company gathered in the par
lor for music and conversation an
original poem was read by Mrs. R.
H. Miras which conveyed in a most
unique way our welcome to Dr.
Jeffries, and was too good to keep,
so is herewith reproduced to go
down in the annals of time, with
other valuable Edgefield history to
be a memory of our diversified tal
ent. A picture of the oldest church
in Virginia was presen^d to Dr.
Jeffries, and to Mrs. Jeffries a sou
venir book containing views of
South Carolina and Virginia, in
which all the guests had registered
during the reception.
After this and other pleasant di
versions had been enjoyed the guests
were served hot coffee with delight
ful sandwiches of many kinds. A
oake was cut which was of a com
posite nature because its exterior
was indeed a work of art iced in
pink and white by Mrs. R. H.
Miras, and baked by that inimitable
connoisseur of cakes, Mrs. J. W.
Peak, also containing other ingredi
ents uncommon to cakes-in fact
it was no common cake-which con
sisted of two messages, one to Dr.
Jeffries and the other to Mrs.
Jeffries which added cordial greet
As long as day lingered the guests
were loath to depart, and the scene
is now a happy memory to all those
who were fortunate enough tb at
The following is the original
poem by Mrs. R. H. Mims:
We welcome you our pastor with glad
and grateful heart
Since our dear Brother Burts thought
From Edgefield friends to part,
We welcome you most heartily and
hope you'll long remain,
To teach us needed lessons which may
not be in vain.
We welcome Sister Jeffries with open
heart and home
And ask for us her kind regard and
help throug coming years.
We welcome little Snowbird her sweet
and modest air
So like the lovely suowdrop
That blooms in gardens fair,
And Rose the sweet young floweret
Just budding into bloom.
We welcome her with all the rest to
bless our every home.
Now since no letter's finished without
a postscript long
I hope you'll bear with patience until
I end my song:
No land's without its valley
In Scotch we call it glen,
And sure I am in Scotland
Full many glens are seen
And just as sure I am of this
Ben Lomond and Ben Nevis,
Have never seen, a finer glen,
Than handsome young Glen Jeffries.
"You'd scarce expect one of my age,"
Please mark the trite quotation,
To write or speak like modern sage
On this most rare occasion.
And now dear friends we've waited
long to find a faithful pastor,
We'll try with loving duty all to win
bis love and favor.
And hold him on from year to-year
The bond still growing stronger
But brevity's the soul of wit,
So I'll not tax you longer. 8
