Use Every Precaution.
Fires are generally more numer
ls at this season than any other
[me of the year. Fast, because a
reater number of chimneys or fire
laces are used than at any other
?ason, and, second, because dry
?aves, which are easily ignited, col
let in the valleys, on piazzas and
|ther places over the roof. By ex
ercising a little precaution a heavy
)ss by fire may be averted.
Will Leave Edgefield.
Capt. 0. P. Bright has been pro

From among us will be deeply and
rery generally regretted. The South

Ithan Capt. Bright.
School Warrants Unpaid.
Considerable dissatisfaction ex
lists among the holders of school
?checks that were issued during the
session of 1910-11, for the reason
?that there are no funds available
(for the payment of these claims.
! The county treasurer can not pay
them as heretofore because the
school funds now being collected
for 1911, or as much as be necessa
ry, are pledged to the State Sinking
Fund Commission to pay the #18,
000 borrowed last spring to put the
schools on a cash basis. The out
standing claims for the session of
1910-11 aggregate something like'
$12,000, and, it appears now, will
not be paid until prevision ia, made
by the legislature.

How They Do in South Georgia.
The following is an extract from
a personal letter received by the
editor from Mr. R. W. Timmons,
who for the past three years has re
sided in Ashburn, Ga.
"We like south Georgia. This is
a fine farmipg section. Hardly any
farmer makes less than a bale of
cotton to the acre and many make
two bales. This is also a hog and
corn country, many farmers owning
as manyas50or 75 hogs. TheypLint
large fields in peanuts and turn the
hogs on them to fatten."
