LOCAL AND PERSONAL.
Mrs. P. P. Burns of Birmingham
is here visiting her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Orlando Sheppard.
The floral department of the fair
.will be more attractive this year
than it has been in several years.
If you do not care anything about j
the fair, and unfortunately a large j
number of farmers do not, briner
the children in to see the carnival.
It is composed of an aggregation of
good clean shows.
The Corner Store hap two attract

attention to bis large stock of shoes
and to the ladies coat suit and

Although it is as early as Tuesday
morning when these lines are being
penned, several very beautiful floats
and a number of exceedingly artis
tic ligs have already been com.dot
ed. Everything will be in readiness
for the parades Thursday and Fri
100 ladies trimmed Hats in our
millinery department. These hats
are copies of $3.00 and $4.00 mod
els made of fine quality felt velvets
trimmed with fancy wings, ribbon*
and bows in all the newest shades,

L. T. May.
As announced in a formal notice
published elsewhere in this issue the
law firm of Thurmond and Nichol
son bas been mutually dissolved.
Mr. Thurmond will continue to
practice law in the office heretofore
occupied by the firm, and Mr.
Nicholson will occupy the office on
the ground floor of the Addison
building, being next door to the
office of Messrs. Sheppard Brou
There is no work pressing on the
farm at this season. Practically all
.?c: rn has been gathered, most of the
cats have been sown and but little
cotton remains in the field, so come
in to the county fair Thursday and
Friday and bring the whole family.
Encourage the managers by your
presence, if you can do nothing
Inspect my exhibit carefully at
L. T. May.
Come to the fair to-morrow and
Friday and you will see the most
gorgeous parades ever seen iu Edge
field. That is saving a great deal,
considering the successful parades
of former years, yet we are confi
dent of what we say. The Adver
tiser man has already seen some of
the finished rigs and floats, and
there is no gainsaying the fact that
nothing more artistic has ever been
-seen in Edgetield.
It's a very small, selfish father
-who will not stop a day and take
the children to the county fair. You
may not be able to take the whole
family to the large fairs in Colum
bia and Augusta but surely you cati
bring them to Edgefield. The lit
tle fellows will greatly enjoy a day
spent on the fair grounds. The
carnival will give practically a con
tint oue performance.
The concert given by the Beulah
Buck Company, under the auspices
of the Beethoven club at Liberty
bail Monday evening drew an audi
ence which filled the auditorium.
Taken as whole the concert was very
good, the duet and quartet numbers
being particularly pleasing. As a
nader Mrs. Buck proved most)
pleasing, and each member of the
company gave their numbers in a
.way that both pleased and gratified
the audience.-Albert Lea (Minn.)
Be sure and see my exhibit at
L. T. May.
Discard the old cook stove that
smokes and wastes wood. Let us
aell you an Excelsior, Star Leader
or Derby. We buy in large quanti
ties and can make very close prices.

Mr. S. Cheatham is over ac-in

suspect -our good friend is home
sick but will not admit it.
Farmers in all directions are

you will be paid for it,

Oats Sown on West Side.
While the writer was at dinner a
few days ago "Uncle" Iv Morgan
called at The Advertiser office, as is
his wont when he comes to Edge
field. When we returned lo the
office this terse little self-explanato
ry note was lying on our desk:
"Any oats sown on the west side?
Yes, sir. Any of them up? Yes, sir.
Through sowing? No, sir. And if
the sowing of oats continues for the
next two weeks we will have to
clear up the briar patches, buru off
the straw fields and cultivate the
pasture lands next year. Selah!
The elegant country home of Mr.
and Mrs. U. C. Fuller wis the scene
of a lovely wedding last Wednes
day, November 6. It was on this
day that their daughter Miss
Minnie was married to Mr. W7alter
R. Hilton of Abbeville. The Rev.
J. S. Harris of McCormick officiat
ed. The wedding march was played
by Miss Louise Solomons of Troy.
The attendants were Miss Lila
Fuller, Miss Lillie Hackett, Mi?s
Amelia Barnes, Messrs. James K.
McDerman, W. W. Hilton and T.
E. Fuller. An elaborate wedding
dinner was served in true old south
ern style. Early in the afternoon
Mr. and Mrs. Hilton left for their
wedding tour which will include
several northern cities. These young
people have a host of admiring
friends who extend congratulations
and many sincere wishes for a hap
Timmono and Morgan.
This ii the name of the new drug*
firm. The friends of Mr. S., E.
Morgan will be pleased to learn
that he has purchased an interest in
the drug store of Mr. Beauregard
Tim mons and henceforth the style
of the business will be Timmons &
Morgan. They will enlarge their
stock and add many improvements.
The Advertiser salutes the new firm
and wishes it a successful career.
Death of Mrs. Wiley.
The oldest inmate of the County
Home,Mrs. Rosa Wiley, died on the
25th of October and was buried the
next day in the cemetery adjoining
the Home. Mrs. Wiley was a unique
character. She has been living at
the Home for more than 20 years
and will be missed by those who
came in contact with her daily. She
spent most of her time making rugs
of scraps of cloth and material of
that kind. She also made hats. She
possessed a bright sunny disposition
in spite of her misfortune.
Good Cotton and Cotton Seed
Market. Many Regrets That
Mr. Freeman Will Leave
Dear Old Advertiser:- I missed
getiinR in anything in your paper
last week and am getting in late
this week. This Monday morning,
our cotton market opened up with
Augusta prices and by noon was in
advance of the Augusta market.
The result is that only three of us
out of six buyers remained in the
market. Not only the cotton market
in ahead of the Augusta market
but the cotton seed market is up
and above Augusta.
We had another one of Brother
Freeman's good logical sermons in
the Baptist church yesterday like
all of his sermons are forceful, en
tertaining and edifying. Last Fri
day night brother Freeman gave the
young people of the B. Y. P. TJ. a
nice entertainment which was very
much enioyed and appieciated by
all the young people. There has not
been a minister of either the Bap
tist or Methodist churches here that
has been loved and appreciated
more or equal to what Brother
Freeman has with the young of
both churches and they regret his
Our town is moving to the front
with a vim and with a determina
tion to be in the forefront. The
prices we are paying the farmer for
his produce speak well for itself.
Property prices and the demand for
town lots and for farming lands out
side of town is a sign of prosperity,
and one other good feature is that
our people are a unit in booming
our town and especially our high
school, which I think is as good as
you will find in any small town in
the state. Our fanners are sowing
extensively of small grain, i. e., oats
to make up for th i short eiop of
both corn and cotton. A loo of the
small farming especially those who
rent will be hard pressed if the mer
chants and banks don't bear with
them and there seems to be a dispo

chants are able to do to carry
