Books and Papers Wanted.
Mrs. Woodson is very anxious to
receive the papers, data, and other
material promised her for the U. D.
C. History, at once. The book is
now being copied and-it is necessa

to send to the State Historian in
August. Send as soon as possible
to Mrs. Agatha Woodson,

Candidate for Supervisor.
There are now six candidates for
the office of supervisor, the last to
enter being Mr. Edmund Schmidt,
who resides in the lower part of the
county. While Mr. Schmidt is not
known over the county so well as
the other aspirants for this office,
yet there is ample time for him to
visit every section and let the peo
ple know of his qualification and
fitness for a proper discharge of the

Candidate For the House.
The formal announcement of
Capt. N. G. Evans which ap pears
in this issue makes the fifth candi
date to enter the race for legisla
tive honors. He needs no introduc
tion to the Edgefield people, having
for 25 years or more been one of
the leading members of the Edge
field bar. Capt. Evans is fully capa
ble of representing the county in
the general assembly with credit to
himself and to the county. As to his
platform, whether it be fashioned
after that of Gov. Blease or Judge
Jones, we can not say, possibly
neither, but The Advertiser will
wager a 40-pound watermelon that
Capt. Evans will yell himself hoarse
any time for Woodrow Wilson as
against the 4 bull moose."
Woman's Mission Societies At
The annual Woman's 5lissionary
Union of Edgefield association will
mee*, at Edgefield Baptist church on
Thursday and Friday, the 29th and
30th of August. We hope to make
this the mo6t successful meeting ever
held by our women.
We already have the assurance of
having with us the two people in
the world whom we should all most
wish to see and hear. In- a letter
j nst received from Oaklaud, Calif,
John Lake and Mrs. Lake, our mis
sionaries announce on our pressing
invitation that they will be with us
at our annual meeting. This would
be enough, if there were nothing
else. But Mrs. Hatcher is coming
to give the Sunb .'am leaders and
mothers another o? her inspiring
talks. Mrs. Hatcher has talked in
the Baptist church thirteen times,
and she tried to elude us this year
and get out of it, but we finally se
One of the sessions will be given
entirely to woman's work, another
to the Young Woman's Auxiliary
in charge of Miss Eileen Ouzts, and
1 another to the Sunbeam work under
[the supervision of Mrs. Tillman.
We expect that between now and
that time that every cent of appor
tionment shall be raised by every
mission society, Y. W. A, and Sun
beam band. It will be a shame if
we do not.
Can we afford to meet our m is
sionaries face to face with a dis
couraging note? Good forbid that
we should, but rather let it be a
jubilee occasion indeed.
There is a deficiency of $800.00
still to be raised in our association,
and it is time for a supreme effort
to be made. Let there be no delay,
for immediate action is necessary.
If leaders are unable to measure up
to the obligation, let other members
come to the rescue, and show their
real interest in the spread of the gos
pel by the sacrifice and successful
accomplishment of your ideals.
The program in detail will be
published at an early date.

Card From Rev. John Lake.
In The Advertiser's mail this
morning was a card from Rev. John
Lake bearing the postmark, Oak
land, Cal. Don't tell him you saw
this in print, nevertheless it is a
fact, we could not read a line of it.
By making out a word here and
guessing at another one there, we
learned that it is his purpose to
reach Edgefield the latter part of
August or early in September. We
have filed away the card and will
have him to read it for us when he
comes-that is, if he can. The front
side and the back side, the top side
and the bottom side, are all cover
ed with lines that run up and down,
across and round-and-round. Did
we say lines? That is a mistake.
There is but one line of it all. From
the salutation to the closing word,
'John," there is but one stroke of
the peu. Whether the aforesaid card
was written while Mr. Lake was in
the throes of mal de mer or in the
midst of an irridescent dream re
sulting from the conte::.plation of
the transcendent joy of onoe again
setting foot on "My own, my native
land," will not be knowu until he
arrives and deciphers it for us.
