the life of Jefferson Davis, a poem
being read by Mrs. li. A. Marsh
and a short sketch by Mrs. P. P.

Lyceum for Edgefield.
Arrangements have been comple
ted for a very attractive lyceum
for Edgefield. The season will
open early in October with a lec
ture by George R. Stuart of Ten
nessee. Unusually strong attrac
tions h ive been engaged for the en
tire course. Many of the small
towns are unable to contract for
high priced attractions because of
the comparatively small number
who patronize the entertainments.
The course has been made possible
here by a committee of representa
tive citizens who guaranteed the
payment of the amount required for
the course. Ernest E. Padgett is
secretary and treasurer of the com
Electric Lights Turned On.
There will be no more dark
nights in Edgefield, ?.t least not un
less some accident befalls the newly
installed electric light plant. As
the result of an election held early
last fall, bonds to the amount of
?15,000 were issued iot tho pur
pose of installing a plant to be
owned and operated by the town.
The unfavorable weather of the
winter and frequent rains in the
early spriiig so delayed the work
that not until Monday was the
work on the plant completed. The
streets were all lighted Mon
day night for the first time.
It appears now that the plant will
prove to be entirely' satisfactory.
When the wiring is completed the
town will be well lighted on the
principle streets the lights being at
close intervals- The work of wir
ing residences, stores and other bu
siness places is being carried for
ward as.rapidly aa possible, and in
a short time the plant will be ope
rated to its full capacity.
