Faithful Colored Man.
"Uncle" George Johnson who
was possibly more widely known
than any other colored man in the
county died early Monday morning.
He was highly respected for his loy
alty and faithfulness by the white
people, being probably more highly
esteemed by them than by the mem
bers of his own race. As soon as
his death was announced some of
"Uncle" George's friends among
the white people raised sufficient
funds to defray all expenses incident
to his burial, which took place at
Pleasant Grove church Monday af
ternoon. Dr. Jeffries, who was ac
companied by several other gentle
men, officiated at tie Agrave. There
are not many like "Uncle" George.
He will be missed in Edgefield.

One of'the most attractive dis
plays at the ; Georgia-Carolina fair,
demonstrating possibilities on a
small .farm, is the individual exhibit

furnish a lesson that could well be
studied by any visitor who is inter;
ested in modern farming. . vi
The exhibit is made entirely from
Mr. Adams' small :farm? which
makes it more worthy of note, in
the estimation of visitors, In it
are found corn, hay, sweet and
Irish potatoes, meal, flour, hams,
bacon, canned goods of alt kinds,
domestic goods of all kinds, the
exhibit being complet? in'every
