Nine. Years on Panama Canal.
A report has recently been pub
lished marking the completion of
nine years of work at the Panama
canal under American jurisdiction.
Little actual work was done for the
first three years. Now 99 per cent,
of the concrete work has been com
pleted, and only 20,000,000 cubic
yards of dirt are still to be exca
vated. The total expenditure so
far has been 8200,110,000. Exca
vation is proceeding at the rate of
2,500,000 cubic yards pei month.
Dogs Being Trained.
Sheriff W. R. Sweaiingen takes
the bloodhounds out now several
times a week for exercise and prac
tice. He engages a colored boy to
run for a mile or more and then
puts the dog on his trail. Thus far
these human sleuths have proven
very satisfactory. Sheriff Swearin
gen wants to keep the dogs con
stantly in fine trim so when they
are actually needed to trail a crimi
nal they will not be a disappoint
ment. The county made a good in
vestment when the two bloodhounds
were purchased. The fact that these
well-trained dogs can be taken to
any part of the county in an auto
mobile in an hour and put on the
trail of a fleeing crimiual will have
a deterrent effect upon the would-be
U. D C. Officers Re-Elected.

retary; Mrs. C. E. May, treasurer;
Mrs. A. A. Woodson, historian,

crosses. The programme of the
meeting was arranged as a celebra
tion of the birthday of Jefferson
Davis, interesting papers being read
by Mrs. J. M. Wright, Mrs. N. G.
Evans, and Mrs. Ida F. Sheppard.
Encouraged by the success of their
former entertainments, plans were
discussed at the meeting last week
looking to the giving of another
entertainment the latter part of this
month. At the conclusion of the
programme and after all business
matters had been disposed of the
hostess served delicious refresh

Will People Never Learn?
Scarcely a week passes that The
Advertiser does not receive some
thing for publication that is not ac
companied by the name of the au
thor. Surely in this enlightened
age it should not be necessary to
state repeatedly that no communi
cation of any nature whatsoever
will be published in The Advertiser
unless the name of the author is
given. The name will not be pub
lished if we are requested not to do
BO, but it must be on file in our
office. We received this morning
an article for publication, one
which we would have been pleased
to publish, but could not do
so because of our inviolate rule
never to publish anything that is
unaccompanied by the name and
address of the writer. It should'nt
be n' cessary to make this announce
ment of policy from time to time
but it seems that people will never
Improve the Thin Soil.
Look <-ver your farm and see if
the dry. ted places have not given
you the most trouble in the matter
of stands. Owing to the absence of
vegetable matter, the evaporation
was greater there than elsewhere.
This made it practically impossible
for the seed to germinate during
the dry season. The easiest and
cheapest way to improve such spots
is to sow peas on all your thin
land. Velvet beans are also grow
ing in favor for this purpose, but
it is probably rather late to sow
velvet beans. We oonfess that we
have never had any experience with
The newspapers of Edgefield
have always been very generous
with their space in advertising en
tertainments to which an admission
fee was charged. They have never
charged for this space at advertis
ing rates, it being their custom to
accept tickets to the entertainment
in lieu of payment in money.
Through a misnomer these tickets
have been called "complimentary"
tickets, when in point of fact they
were not complimentary tickets at
all. If a paper renders services
to the amount of $6, $8, or $10 and
receives therefor two or three tick
ets that are worth but 35 or 50
cents each, surely they can not be
called complimentary tickets. Tick
et* that are presented to persons
who have not contributed in any
manner to the success of the enter
tainment are complimentary in the
true sense. In the past this news*
paper has allowed itself to be
placed in a false light-that of re
ceiving tickets as a free gift. Fre
quently the editor of The Adver
tiser has had to go and ask for tick
ets of the persons who were charged
with their sale. While we had
done advertising to the amount of
live times tho value of the tickets
requested, we were placed in the
humiliating position of begging
tickets. In the future we do not
propose to be thus humiliated or
Hereafter when The Advertiser
is asked to advertise an entertain
ment to which an admission fee is
charged, unless a reasonable num
ber of tickets (or an order for tick
ets) are sent lo The Advertiser office
in payment for the advertising, we
will pay for the tickets wo need, as
others do, and then present a bill
for advertising the entertainment.
As they always do moro advertising
than the tickets cost, some papers
adopt this policy altogether.
Those who give entertainments
hereafter will please bear in mind
the foregoing, as The Advertiser
will not deviate from it in a single
instance. Either send tickets or an
order for tickets to The Advertiser
office before the entertainment or
pay the advertising bill when it is
presented after the entertainment.
We will have paid cash for the
tickets to the entertainment. We
make this announcement so as not
to be placed in the false attitude of
receiving "free" tickets or begging
