Caused Complete Change of
A striking instance of how "man
proposes and God disposes" is
found in the experience of Pro.f. J.
F. Enumingerand Maj. T. J. Lyon.
Just as they completed comfortable,
modernly-appointed residences, fit
ted after their heart's desire and al
most within a stone's throw of
what appeared literally sixty days
ago to be their life's work, through
the mut.uions of providence there
came an abrupt and complete change
of plans. If they follow the institu
tion with and for which they
have labored so many years, these
pretty homes must be left and will
be occupied by others. Make our
plans as wo will, "there is a destiny
that shapes our ends." It is practi
cally certain that Prof. Entzrainger
wili go to Greenwood but there is a
probability that Maj. Lyon will re
maiu in Edg- tield. Would that we
could keep b.-th of these exemplary
and very worthy young men here!
Attend The Corn Exposition.
The great National Corn Exposition
opened in Columbia Monday morn
ing and will last two weeks. Won
der how many Edgefield county far
mers will attend? We hope the num
ber Will run well up into th i hun
dreds. It is not probable that an
other national corn exposition will
be held near us again soon, as there
are so many large cities of the for
ty-odd states bidding for it annual
ly. We would not have had it now
in South Carolina bad it not been
for Jerry Moore's remarkable
achievement. Go over to Co
lumbia this week or next. Not
only go once but go twice or three
times if possible. It is not simply
an exhibition of corn but there are
dozens of experts on ha;id from the
national government ami from at
least half of the states who are pre
senting from an expert and scienti
fic standpoint every phase and form
of agricultural life. It is therefore
as much a farmer's institute as il is
a corn exposition, very probably
more so. The wide-awake, ambitious
farmer will not navs to be urged to
improve suet/, an opportunity.

Now for a long pull, a strong
pull, and a pull all together, for the
establishment of adequate educa
tional facilities in Edgefield. When
put to the test our people have
never lagged in educational mat

ever will. Taking into account their
resources, we believe the people of
Edgetield will provide as good
educational facilities as any other
town of like size in the state.
Mr. T. B. Lanham at Home.
Mr. T. B. Lanham, better known
and loved in Edgefield and through
out Edgefield county as Tom Lan

stopped over in Greenville Friday
and Saturday to see his daughter
Miss Ethel Lanham who is a stu

Dr. John F. Vines, who is hold

the school Wednesday morning and
the former conducted chapel devo

youth." Dr. Vines gave us a fine
message, direct from Him and much
good teed was sown.
Mr. Walker surprised us by com

Our community is surely being

The students have given him their
most hearty support, at nearly if
not all the meetings some cadets

From the first the boys were inter

Providas for Care of Dumb Animals.
A new club appealing to lovers o!

novel departure will be the dogs'

with attendants, which will be utilized
for the purpose of taking charge of
members' dogs when visiting the club.
Boarding the animals at the club will
be one of the features, and there will

The latter is a particularly noisy

Death of an ^Estimable Citizen.
After a very brief illness Mr.
.Tames P. Wells died early Mon
day morning at the home of his
son, Mr. C. A. Wells, in his 84th
year. He was one of the oldest and
at the same time one ^f the most
sterling citizens of the county. Mr.
Wells was born Jand reared where
the town of Plum Branch is now
located and moved to the Horn's
Creek section to make his home
soon after his marriage to Miss
Elizabeth Glover, who preceded him
to the upper and better world about
20 years ago.
Mr. Wells entered the Confeder
ate army in the early stages of the
Civil war and rendered gallant ser
vice. When he came home at the
cio*e of the war he rode the horse
which he had ridden in many a con
flict. He named the faithful anima'
"Old Keb" and kept him until his
death many years after the war, giv
ing him the attention of a pet. Mr.

Trapping a Lawyer.
In some cases counsel receive an
swers to questions that they had no
business to nut, which if not quite
to their liking, are what they justly
deserve. The following story of old
George Clark, a celebrated negro
minstrel, is a case in point. On one
occasion, when being examined as a
witness, he was severely interrogat
ed by a lawyer.
"You are in the minstrel business,
I believe, inquired the lawyer."
"Yes, eir," replied the minstrel.
"Is not that rather a low calling?"
"I don't know but what it is sir,"
replied the minstrel, "but it is much
better than my father's and I am
rather proud of it."
The lawyer fell into the trap.
"What was your father's calling?"
"He was a lawyer" replied Clarke
in a tone that sent the whole court
into a roar of laughter as the dis
comfited lawyer sat down.- Week

reconstruction period of 1876.
It was unfortunate for the people
of his day aud generation that J\lr,
Wells did not mingle more with
the people. Being extremely modest
and retiring in his habits, he spent
but little time away from home. He
attended strictly to his own affairs
and never interfered with the affairs
of others. Mr. Wells was a mau
who has alwiys been conspicuous
among those who knew him person
ally for his rugged honesty and
strong,unerring judgment. He spent
his entire life upon the farm, more
than 50 years upon his Horn's
Creek farm, and his very marked
success caused him to be pointed tc
as a model worthy uf being followed
by his fellows.
Mr. Wells was a member of
Horn's Creek church, from which
the funeral was conducted Tuesday
afremoon by his castor. Dr. M. D.
Jeffries. He is survived by one
daughter, Mrs. H. S. Quarles, and
four sons, A. A., C. A., W. G. and
