WALTBB S. MABSH,
Worth Price of Paper.}
Do not fail to real the very in
teresting letter of Dr. W. D. Ouzts
in this issue, in which he tells in a
most fascinating manner of his ob
servations on a recent trip to Balti
more. Having the privilege of read
ing this article-taking the journey
with Dr. Ousts-is worth the sub
scription price of the paper.
Tuesday afternoon of last week
sweet little Mary Marsh, the five
year-old daughter of Dr. and Mrs.
Tl. A. Marsh celebrated her fifth ?
? "birthday by inviting a number of j
lier little friends to spend a few hap
py hours with her. After many lit
tle games were played, the little J
folks were carried into the dining

hostess was the recipient of a num
ber of tokens of affection from her ?

On Wednesday afternoon next, at
3:30 o'clock the 6th of December,
there will be held in the Baptist
church, a meeting of the mission
societies of all denominations, and
all committees, in preparation for

that every christian woman in Edge
field may lay aside everything at
that hour and come to the service
that by prayer and united presence
we may ask for a special blessing
upon the coming meeting.
Mr. Roper's Plan Good.
Mr. J. H. P. Roper told The Ad
- vermeer's representative several days
ago that he is sowing several acres
of wheat in addition to his usual
acreage of oats, so as to be certain
to make an abundance of feed for
his stock. Mr. Roper's idea, whioh
is a good one, is that should the
- oats be killed he can cat the wheat
for feed, and, on the other hand,
should the oats make a normal
yield, he will harvest the wheat for
floor. Other farmers could with
profit adopt the same plan.
Grove Lodge No. 52.
The regular meeting of the Grove

Very Satisfactory Season.
The Advertiser has been inform
ed that the Beaver Dam ginnery
has ginned about a thousand bales
of cotton more up to this date than
it did during tho entire season last
year, the figures being about 3,200
up to this date as against 2,200 for
last season. The large increase is
due to the enlarged capacity of the
ginnery as well as to the increase of
the yield in this vicinity. It is
probable that the total figures for
the 1011-12 season will reach 4,000
A Sterling Citizen.
The first to announce himself a
candidate for the office of judge of
probate is Mr. William T. Kin
naird who is widely known and
largely connected throughout the
county, having married a sister of
the late Judge J. D. Allen. Mr.
Kinnaird is a sterling citixen who
is known far and near for his high
character and exemplary life. If
Mr. Kinnaird is elected he will
make a capable and faithful officer.
Growing Peanuts Profitable.
Mr. J. T. Gardner who resides in
the Antioch section made 200 bush
els of Spanish peanuts this year on
six acres. Ninety bushels were made
on an aore and a half. Mr. Gardner
finds ready sale for the peanuts at
11.50 per bushel. He brought a one
horse load to town Saturday and
sold them for $60. The peanuts were
made on thin land with compara
tively little fertilizers. There is no
excuse for farmers growing so much
cotton when the soil of this section
will pr*duce many other crops
Corn Contests Have Borne Fruit
Several farmers have been kind
enough to say recently that but for
the line upon line concerning corn
growing that has appeared in The
Advertiser during the past two
years, they would not have made
corn enough to do them this year.
They were encouraged and stimu
lated to give corn more attention by
our reminders from time to time to
grow more corn at home. Being as
sured that the contests of the past
three years have accomplished some
good, we will conduct another con
test next year.
All Cribs Full
Almost any old fanner could
make more cotton than he could
gather this year, but very few have
more corn than they know what to
do with. Our young friend Alex
Watson has filled all of his cribs
and is not yet through gathering.
His total yield of corn will be in
the neigborhood of 500 bushels.
Should The Advertiser's supply
run low we will know whero to
send next summer.Speaking of mak
ing corn, the writer is fattening
four hogs on old corn-odds and
ends of last year's crop.
The progressive firm of Quarles
& Mellichamp of Red Hill will in
augurate a dissolution sale, begin
ning on December 8th and lasting
through the 16th. The Advertiser
job office is printing this firm a lot
of circulars which will be distributed
next week giving prices which will
convince people of the great bar
gains that will be offered. It Is by
mutual consent that these young
men dissolve their business. In
order to ie3uc<j the stock, prices
will be made very low.
Linen Shower in Honor of Miss
The leading social event of last
week was the linen shower given
Wednesday afternoon by Mrs. Jas.
E. Hart in honor of Mis*
OraR .ves, who on yesterday after
noon became the bride of Mr. John
Hugh Nicholson. The hostess re
ceived the half a hundred guests
very graciously and made every
moment pass exceedingly pleasantly
from the time they entered the
beautifully decorated parlor? until
adieus were said. After the numer
ous and very elegant tokens were
presented to the bride-elect, all of
the guests were provided with pen
oils and paper and wrote in a few
brief I sentences greetings to the
bride. The slips of paper were col
lected and then read aloud by Mrs.
Mamie Tillman, affording muoh
amusement for the entire company.
By oommon consent, the honor of
writing the most original or apropos
greetings was accorded to Mrs. B.
E. Nicholson. Mrs. Hart served a

An Elegant Five-O'clock Tea
Miss Lois Shores, of Spartanburg,
who is a visitor in the home of Rev.
and Mrs. P. P. Blalock, was the
guest of honor at an elegant five
o'clock tea that was given by Mrs.
Mamie N. Tillman Monday af
ternoon. Sparkling repartee and
"skirmishes of wit'' were inter
spersed with vocal and instru
mental music. While the social feat
ure was very pleasant, doubtless the
most enjoyable half hour was that
spent "over the tea-cups," the hos
tess having provided a delightful
menu for her guests. The occasion
will afford pleasant memories for
the dozen and more young people
who were present.
Highly Creditable Journal.
The November number of the
Co-Ed., the college journal published
by the literary societies of the S. C.
C. I., hal appeared. It would do
credit, both in the excellence of its
subject matter and in mechanical
appearance, to any of the largest col
leges in the country. The writer read
it with very keen interemt and delight,
being justly proud of what our
young ladies and young gentlemen
are achieving in the journalistic
field. The Advertiser extends con
gratulations and hearty good wishes
to the makers of the Co-Ed.
