Letter From North Augusta
That Will Interest Many of
The Advertiser's Readers.
Dear Advertiser:- Boom, boom,
we are always on a boom not only
in North Augusta but the world
over. We plod not in the footsteps
ef our fathers, taking life easy and
living to a great old age but we
hustle and bustle in autos, in busi
ness, in pleasure, in flying machines
and Titanios which reminds one of
the old negro's sermon.
"Mortal man born of woman, few
of days and full of trouble, here to
morrow-gone to-day he kick out
he foot he die."
Yes everything booms but r?li
frion. There seems to be no time to
spare for the old time religion.
We sing fast, preach fast, and
pray fast and get through as the
little boy said, ' with that old job"
and hustle on to something else.
My, what a pleasure it is here in
North Augusta to read such philo
sophical letters in The Advertiser
as "Uncle Iv" my old school mas
ter writes. I shall never forget the
days that he laborod so persistently
to pound a little knowledge in this
His beard was, even then, long
and white. I was a boy, not old and
gray and wrinkled. May the old pa
triot live many more days to dis
pense his sunshine and wisdom.
Then too it is a pleasure to read
the letters in The Advertiser, of the
boys and girls who are the children
of my old schoolmates.
Many former Edgefield citizens have
cast their lots here. The Cogburns,
Holsteins, Faulkners, Medlocks,
MoClendons, Rambos and others
breathe the goosberry air of North
We were sorry to see that the
Edgefield convention endorsed only
one of her senatorial aspirants. To
endorse one and ice water the other
of her noble sons seems unfair and
unjust and unworthy of Edgefield.'
''Equal rights to both and advanta
ges to neither" should be the motto
of all fair minded men.
And then too, we have in mind
the forceful injunction of ''Rotate,
Rotate" by him who ousted Butler
and Hampton, the great heroes of
the Confederate war.
The finest crops I know are in
and around North Augusta. Gar
dens too are fine. Plenty of cabbage,
beans, Irish potatoes, lettuce, rad
ish and turnips.
Our new county seems a dead un
certainty but the sun, moon and
stars rise and set all the same, and
we, like John Brown, will go
Both The Advertiser and The
Chronicle make their weekly visita
to my shack and I still feel inter
ested in old Edgefield and her good
people. As soon as Edgefield gets
some roads whether grown from the
seed or ordered by wireless I mean
to take a trip through her borders.
Long live the candidates and good

Paid For Horse Taken by
Thursday Mr. Albert R. Nichol
son, who was a Confederate soldier,
received a check from Washington
in payment for a horse which was
taken from him 57 years ago by
thc Federal authorities. Two days
before Mr. Nicholson surrendered
at Amelia Court House, Va., his
horse was taken from him by
Yankee soldiers. Soon after the
surrender as he was about to de
part for home, he had the good for
tune to "pick up" a horse that be
longed to the Union army. The
animal bore thejbrand "U. S." as did
all other federal property. While
in the field plowing, after being at
home about two months, the horse
which Mr. Nicholson had ridden
from Virginia was seized by Yan
kee soldiers that were stationed at
Edgefield at the time. Havingbeen
informed that other Confederate
soldiers in this section had been
reimbursed by the national govern
ment for horses that were seized
without authority by Yankee sol
diers soon after the surrender, Mr.
Nicholson made out a claim for
damages which he had thus sus
tained and through the assistance
of Congressman James F. Byrnes
he succeeded in having the claim
If other veterans who sustained a
similar loss will present their claims
properly attested they will likewise
be reimbursed. The time for filing
such claims will expire on tho first
of Jone, so no time should be
