On Fridav we played baseball
with Aiken. Although our team
tried their level best our side lost
with a score of 7 to 4. The Aiken
pitcher is about the best pitcher we
have ever encountered on the held.
In the game be struck out seven
men in three innings. Our tine
pitcher was nearly up to him hav
ing one man less struck out than
the Aiken pitcher. The game was
exceedingly fine: a very large crowd
being present. The cheering for
both sides was both loud and good.
In two more weeks we hope to play
a return game with them and this
time we hope to beat them if we
can. Several more games with

Young Cedar Creek Farmer
Writes Interesting Letter.
Editor The Advertiser: I will atr
tempt to ?rive yon a few happenings
from the immediate locality of Ce
dar Creek. This is the name of the
creek which runs through our farra
for two miles. It rises in front of
Mr. S. E. Morgan's home on lands
owned by Mr. A. B. Covar, where
the clay was obtained and hauled to
Mile's Mill or pottery and made in
to fine earthen ware many years ago.
lt then runs in westward direction
through Charlie Cheatham's place
to Mrs. J. M. Cobb's Abney place,
through Henry Cohen's, Mrs. Mary
J. Norris and Mr. L. T. ?Uy's, the
wide-awake merchant prince of
Edgefield. Thence to Mr. J. A.
Mays, the champion bird hunter
and truck farmer, on through J. M.
Mays', J. W. K. Smith's to C. H.
Wells, the groat financier of Edge
field county, almost to the equal of
the late J. Pierpont Morgan in
business prosperity. Thence to lands
of Mr. Frank West, Hon. Thos. H.
Rainsford and Dr. C. P. DoVore,
who owns the hills and valleys of
Cedar Creek and Horn's Creek by
the thousands. Cedar Creek empties
into Horn's Creek just below Dr.
DeVore's old mill site. Now this is
what I know of Cedar Creek. It
runs through some as fine lands as
ever a crow flew over.
My school is not yet out, but I
had to stop the first of March to
take a special course in farming.
We did uot do much ploding until
the past ten days but have made
good progress since then. We, com
menced to plant corp on the 29th
March and have .planted about for
ty acres, only have about 10 acres
more to plant. The oat crop is
promising and more than usual was
sown. We will not plant much cot
ton. Have a special cotton and corn
patch this year and will juin your
corn club. I want to get into the
I intend to make the improving of
cotton and corn a specialty.
Mr. J. R. Cantelou is plowing
up the finest field of oats I ever saw.
He surely wants a cotton crop to
plow up those oats. The land was
sown in oats last year than sown in
peas then in fall bedded with two
horse plow. The oats are ?-imply
tine and are over half a stand.
We want to plant some cotton
seed by the 15th. Our neighborhood
is taking on some new life. Mr. S.
D. Mays, who is carrier on R. F.
D. No. 2., has completed and mov
ed into his cosy cottage on High
Point Hill. He has a beautiful view
of the surrounding vicinity.
Mr. L. Yancy Bryan, that get-up
aud-get cotton farmer, has bought
a part of the Jasper Miller tract and
cut every brier, bush, tree on it.
He has broken it up thoroughly and
harrowed same, then terraoed and
ditched it. He has bedded it up and
is now ready to plant in the best of
shape. He says he expects to make
enough clear over and above actual
expenses to pay for the land this
Mr. Bud C. Byran has bought
Mrs. Sallie Collett's place and mov
ed on it. He is doing some tine work
there. Bud is a hustler. No doubt
he will do well. ,
Mr. L. T. May has bought a
place from Mrs. E. H. Talbert on
the Boulevard road.
Mr. W. E. Ouzts has had a quan
tity of fine lumber eawed and has
built a barn and will erect a mod
ern cottage when bis crops are laid
by this summer.
Col. S. B. Mays and wife, Mr.
and Mrs. J. W. Kemp and family,
Eddie Talbert and Mrs. S. D. Mays

Mr. B. L. Helston and family
spent Sunday with Mr. Bud Bryan
This being my first letter will
close wishing you and your good j
paper much success and thanking
you for the space and your patience.

OUGHT TO PAINT.
I ought to have painted last year,
but I hated to pay $2.25 a gallon.
I've got to paint this year, it'll
take a little more paiut; I suppose
1 gallon in 10; and a littlemere
work, 1 suppose 1 day in 10.
My job would have cont last year
about $2.50; it is going to cost this
$2.50 gone. I suppose it'll be the
same again, if I wait again.
What if paint goe? down to
$1.75 a gallon? $2 50 on the job!
I shan't wait; what a fool I was!

Coughs and Consumption.
Couphs and cold when neglected,
always lead to serious trouble of the
lungs. The wisest thing to do when
you have a cold that troubles you
is to get a bottle of Dr. King's New
Discovery. You will get relief from
the first dose, and finally the cough
will disappear. O H Brown, of
Mnscadine, Ala., writer: "My wife
was down in bed with an obstinate
cough, and I honestly .believe had
it not been for Dr. King's New
Discovery, she would not be living
to-day." Known fur forty-three
years as the best remedy for coughs
and colds. Price 50c and $1.00.
