In spite of the very unfavorable
year for growing corn, some of the
yields from the prize acres will be
very satisfactory. Surely with a
favorable year, such as we hope next
year will be, some one will reach
the 150-bushel mark. We shall not
be satisfied until the record of
Edgefield county compares favor
ably with the leading corn growing
counties of the state.
The popular store of Smith
Marsh Company has two advertise
ments in this issue calling especial
attention to the shoe department
and the ladies' suit department.
Certainly the ladies will not supply
their needs without first visiting
this popular store and inspecting
thier stylish offerings. Surely the
most exacting taste can be suited.
Their prices are very reasonable.
Dr. F. M. Routh delivered a
very instructive address in the court
house Tuesday evening on the
hookworm disease. [Ile is very anx
ious for a larger number of people,
especially school children, to meet
bim in the conrt house every Sat
urday. The other sections of the
county, as shown by Dr. Routh's
report in this issue, are taking more
interest than are those at the coun
ty seat. This should not be the case.
Maj. R. S. Anderson who is
managing the tournament that is to

been planned for the fair. Maj. An

The School Improvement Asso
ciation of Edgefield is planning to
hold for the benefit of the organi
zation, a baby show on the last Fri
day in October, and in connection
with this they will also have a
chrysanthemum exhibit. There is
no more laudable undertaking than
this one to make the school room
and grounds more attractive for our
children, and we hope this show
will meet with great financial suc
cess. Let everybody co-operate with
A surprise wedding of much in

U. D. cTlV?eeting.
The first fall meeting of the TJ.

ing ia the absence of the president.
Several matters of business were
discussed, and it was decided to
have f.oat in tho county fair parade.
Interesting papers were read by

Nicholson, the latter being an origi
nal paper prepared by Mrs. Nich
olson on the coast defense of Char
leston. At the close of the program,
the hostess, Mrs. Padgett, served a
delightful and elaborate salad course
with ice tea.

Meeting at the Springfield Col
ored Baptist Church.
Editor The Advertiser:
Please allow me space in your
most woi thy Journal to speak of
the happenings in and around our
little town. The union meeting of
the third division of the colored
Baptists was held at Flint. Hill Bap
tist church on the fifth Sunday last
of which Kev. W. M. Peterson is
the moderator. Tho meeting was
a most excellent one and everything
passed off quietly. We are forced
to believe that the colored people
of this county are fast learning how
to respect themselves, and we are
glad because as soon as they learn
this they will know how to lespect
and revere the white people also.
While the services at tho union
meeting were about to close even
though we had been bountifully
blessed with preaching as well as
many good speeches we had listen
ed to, a thrilling message came to
us that if it would be suitable, that
the Rev. Mr. Lake a great missiona
ry from China. (Mr. John Lake)
would preach at Springfield Baptist
church. An immense crowd left the
union meeting and came forward to
hear this noble man of God. The
gathering was an astonishing sight
for this was the first night gather
ing that we have had at Spring
field Baptist ohurch (colored) in 19
years, and while the house waa
completely packed from oenter to
circumference, this was before that
spotless divine had arrived, Rev.
Lake. We reserved about one fourth
of the church room for our white
friends to be seated. Among the
worshippers came the Hon. W. A.
Strom and family, Dr. J. H. Self
and family, Mr. J. T. Ouzts and
family and other honored white
friends of which space will not ad
mit me to mention, and of course
tbi? is not out of the ordinary;for we
always have our white ?rienda with
us when it comes to a religious gath
ering. At this time the Rev. Mr.
Lake arrived and was introduced
by Rev. W. M. Peterson in a very
hightoued way to the audience.
Rev. Mr. Lake arose and prefaced
his discourse and read as a lesson
the 55th chapter of the prophecy
of Isaiah, and then proceeded to
preach, using as a text the 6, 7, 8
verses of the preceding chapter.
The Dr. was at LIB beat and like a
Cicero, and with the eloquence of a
Webster and the mellifluous lan
guage of a Chinaman took the au
dience on his wings of eloquence
and Hew back to great cities of
China and then darted almost out
of space touching upon that peace
ful Pacific on which he had sailed
for many days, and he closed amid
many hearty applauses, then clasp
ing the hands of many of his color
ed friends, they desired to hear him
sing a song in the Chinese language
which he and his devoted wife
proceededjto do closing amid cheers,
after which we had the benediction
by the Rev. Mr. Lake.
