Annual Clearance Sale.
The annual clearance sale at
Ooztsville still goes merrily on. The
unfavorable weather and very bad
roads have caused Mr. Ouzts to ex
tend the time until February the
3rd. On Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday following that date the
big store will be closed for the pur
pose of taking the annual invento
ry. Read the advertisement of the
W. M. & J. T. Ouzts Company in
this issue. They always have some
thing to say of interest to the shop
ping public. As the telephone wire
is down leading to Greenwood they
are unable to give the weekly mar
ket quotation, but Mr. Jesse F.
Ouzts, the enterprising manager
can always be depended upon to
give the full market price for all
produce carried to him.

Lee's Birthday Celebrated.
The Edgefield Chapter of the
Daughters of the Confederacy cel
ebrated the anniversary of Lee's
birthday with appropriate exercises
at the Baptist Church on last Fri
day. After an organ prelude by
Mrs. Tillman, Mr. Orlando Shep
pard, Master of ceremonies, called
upon Rev. Walker of the Method
ist Church to make the opening
prayer. Lee's lavorite hymn, 'How
Firm a Foundation was then sung.
The speaker of the occasion, Dr.
M. D. Jeffries, was introduced by
Mr. Sheppard, who said that it was
fitting that so loyal a Virginian
should be chosen to speak on one
of the greatest of Virginia's sons.
The address was most interesting,
being full of personal reminiscen

friends who knew and honored the
Although a mere boy, Dr. Jef
fries remembers the day of Lee's
death, when the announcement was
made at his school house, and the
sadness that prevailed everywhere
when it was generally known.
Schools were closed and farmers
left their fields and assembled in
the churches to pay the last tribute
of respect to their beloved hero.
The audience listened attentively
throughout the address, at the con
clusion of which a collection was
taken for the Arlington Monument
amounting to $5.00. The clos
ing: hymn was ''Sweet Bye and
i Bye" followed by the benediction
and an organ postlude.

Visitors in our midst for the past
week were California Frank and
some members of his troupe. He,
represents the Wild West Show
which entertains so many visitors
at the Georgia-Carolina fair each

it, as his fingers flash with dia
