Metal Shingles Fire Protection.
One of the best jobs any farmer
.can do at this season of the year ic
to take off the old woodeu shingles
which make his house a fire-trap,
and substitute metal roofing, oi
rubber roofing. Even in our ci tie.?
where the best fire protection ic
provided, very few home-owner
are willing to risk wooden shingle*,
on their buildings; and in the coun
try, where it is almost impossible to
atop a fire once it gets started, then
ss all the more need for using some
other kind of roof. And it will
pay to put it on before the high
winds of March add new dangers to
the kindling-wood you now have
your house.-Progressive Ps r
Edgefield County Teachers.
Each January for a number of
years, the Edgefield county W. C.
T. LT. has co-operated in offering
p ?zed for the best essays on the
evil effects of alcohol and tobacco.
We believe these essay contests
which have been very faithfully
conducted by most of the teachers
.?f our county, have been largely in
strumental in making a strong and
intelligent temperance sentiment in
our cu un ty.
Edgefield county has been win
ning: bret prize in the slate contest
for several years, and we hope will
com?nue lodoso.Theseare subjects:
Tjie first is "How Does the Busi
:e>? World regard the user of Al
cohol?" This subject is for girls
i;?il beys over fourteen years of
mi*, and the first prize is ?5.U0 in
j ^?-M, second prize $2.50.
'?'he second subject is for all siu
ilcnts in the county fourteen and un
der, and is, 'Why I will not smoke
ci:..treiies," For ibis the prize is
.s'> U? in gold, second prize $2.50.
All essays must be in by March
1. Send them to Mrs. T. H. Rains
ford, Edtrefield S. C., and suitable
judy? s will award the prizes. Liter
ature will bc sent out in a few days
to each teacher in the county, for
usc in instructing the pupils. We
ask that each teacher take this o)>
portunityto instill temperance prin
ciples, and we congratulate each of
them on their successful efforts in
When the essays have been sent
in and judged, the two best will
be published in The Edgefield Ad
vertiser, and we hope at some public
occasion to award the prizes.
Ourcountrj- schools need not fear
to compete with the town schools,
as the students in the country have
been winners of prizes on a num
ber of occasions. For any further

An Appeal to Pupils and Teach
To the Pupils and Teachers of the
Schools of South Carolina.
Heretofore, the Committee bas
invited yon to assist in raising
funds for the Confederate Monu
ment at Arlington, Virginia: but,
ibis time, because of the large
amount remaining to be collected,
and the near approach of the time
of deliverj*, we feel it necessary to |
appeal to you urgently to aid and
cooperate with us.
This monument is to be a tribute
to the whole Confederacy-Armb
and Navy-and it should interest
every citizen of the South.
Sir Moses Ezekiel, the sculptor,
will turn over, during the present
year, to the United Daughters of ;
the Confederacy, this memorial, the t
crowning work of his life, and we
must keep our part of the contract. ^
There are still $18,000 to be raised,
and we are making extra efforts ?
this year to meet our obligations.
If each pupil will give -live or ten
cents and will ask as much from
some friend who will bc glad to '
contribute, we feel sure that your
combined efforts will aid greatly in '
our patriotic endeavor.
January the ?9th, Gen. Lee's
birthday, has been set apart as the
time for collecting these freewill !
offerings; and we believe that you <
will esteem it a pleasure and a priv- J
ilege to do honor to the heroism
and steadfastness of the soldiers of
thc Southern Confederacy.

South Leads in Cotton Mill
Washington, D. C., January 9. '
-President Finley, of the South- ]
em Railway Company, commenting '?
to-day upon the record of cotton
mill construction during the calen- ;
dar year 1912, said:
"The Southeastern States led all
other sections of the country in
cotton mill development in Iii I?.
There were 37 new mills built in
the United States during the year.
Of these 20 were in the Southeast- '
ern States. Out of 533,100 new
spindles 427,000, or 80 per cent,
were in Southeastern mille, and out
of 9,774 new looms, 6,450, or 60
per cent, were in Southeastern mills. :
These figures refer only to new
mills and lake no account of the
large additions made during the
year to existing plants by which
the manufacturing capacity of the
section was largely increased. The
aggregate increase has been so
great as practically to insure the
maintenance of the record made by
the cotton-producing ?Lates in the i
year ending August 31, 1912, when :
the mills of the South consumed <
more cotton than those of all other,
sections of the United States." I <

"Recently, in a Sunday school
class, I repeated the text: "Arise,
and take the young child and his
mother and flee into Egypt," and
then I showed the children a large
picture that illustrated the text in
bright colors. The children stud
ied this picture eagerly. Then they
all frowned and looked rather dis
appointed. Finally a little girl ask
ed: "Teacher, where is the flea?"
