spent Sunday at Johnston with Mr.
and Mrs. Yancy May.
Mr. R. L. Dunovant attended the
commencement exercises of Win
throp college last week to witness
the graduating exercises of his
daughter, Miss Mamie Dunovant.
While cotton generally is very
late, one farmer told The Advertis
er's representative Saturday that he
has "squares" and expects cotton
blooms at the usual time.
Ropers and Colliers are now rep
resented in The Advertiser's oom
contest. Mr. B. T. Lanham and
Master Hart Miller were the last
names enrolled. Wo yet have room
for others to enroll.
Miss Mamie Dunovant and Miss
JM&ry Adams Hughes are at home
from Winthrop college. .They have
completed the full course of four
years. Edgetield is very proud of the
record that these ye ung ladies made
at this splendid institution.
Miss Hattie Strom was the guest
of Misses Lila and Ethel Logan Sat
urday, having stopped in Edgefield
while en route from Latta where she
has been spending several weeks
?with her sister, Mrs. Annie Mae
"We passed the prize aere of Mr.
B. R. . Smith Sunday. His stand
seems to be perfect and for the sea
son the corn is all that it is possi
ble for it to be- Of course many un
toward things could happen before
the corn is harvested.
It seems to be the universal opin
ion that in spite of the prolonged
drought, the crop of grain re
cently harvested was the largest
yield ever made in the county. An
unusually large acreage was sown,
very little of it being killed in the
Mr. W. D. Allen and Mr. S. B.

friends of these young men wish
them well, trusting that they will
ha successful in whatever line of
business they engage.
Sergt. R. P. Staley, Corporal O.
L. L. Neely and Corporal James B.
Jones, of Charleston, all members

also of Charleston, have been guests
at the home of Mrs. Moseley.
Misses May Tompkins, Gladys
Rives, Snow Jeffries and Natalie
Padgett reached home Saturday from
the Greenville Female college. In- j
stead of coming directly to Edgefield
after the commencement of theG. F.
C. Miss Helen Tillman went from
Greenville to Sullivan's Island to
spend some time.
Mr. and tirs. J. L. Mirna spent
Sunday at Johnston with Mr. and
Mrs. W. T. Walton. The very suc
cessful manner in which Mr. Wal
ton conducts his farm entitles him
to first place among the farmers of
the county. His cotton is the finest
that we have Been. He only plants
ti ve acres in corn and every acre has
the appearance of being a "pet"
acre. Mr. Walton will thresh about
1,400 bushels of oats from 33 acres.
You can feed both your land ar
stock by sowing liberally (

Messrs. B. F. Zimmerman, D. 0.
Albert and R. M. Scurry returned
from Atlanta Saturday. They at
tended a convention of oil mill sup
erintendents which waa held there
during the week.
The cold snap drove the straw
hats, ice cream signs, peek-a-boo
shirt waists and short sleeves into
their places of hiding, and over
coats, gloves, hot drinks, etc., have
taken their places.
Miss Annie Quarles. the daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Quarles,
came home Sunday afternoon from
the hospital in Augusta where she
recently underwent an operation for
appendicitis. While not entirely
weil, she is steadily improving.
The railroads are arranging for a
heavy passenger traffic northward
for the summer, but unless there is
a considerable change in ythe tem
perature, the mountaineers will
come to Edgefield instead of Edge
field people going to the niountainc.
The mercury dropped lower Mon
day night aud Tuesday than ever
before in this section in June. There
is no record of a lower temperature
at this season in the past. The winds
have been ^whistling and (he fires
roaring as if it wyre January in
stead of June.
Mri. W. L. Dunovant and Mr?.
George F. Mims attended the funer
al of their uncle, Mr. Hugh F.
Buist, which was held in Greenville
Saturday. Mrs. Douorant returned
Monday and Mrs. Mirna went to
Moore, Spartanburg eoanty, to vis
it her brother, Mr. Baiat Aaderaoa.
! Cupid says it is too unseasonable
?for orange blossoms in Edgefield
! this June. That possibly accounts
for the fact that he has been con
centrating his forces elsewhere.
The extremely critijal condition
of Mr. W. W. Adams has cas* a

* The Advertiser has just a few
bushels of Iron peas for sale at the
market price. We find that we

j What will you do with the vast
acres from which you have just har
vested oats? Before thirty days
pass have another growing crop on
th?? land-eith?r peas or corn.
Western corn and hay may be
higher next spring than last.
If those people in Augusta who
are conducting an excursion to
Jacksonville this week had announc
ed that the cold wave was headed
this way, they would have had
practically all of Edgefield on their
trains bound for Florida.
Time hangs heavy on the hands
of the soda water clerks. But we
rather suspect that they miss the
smiles of the young ladies more
than they do the nickels and dimes
that flow into the coffers of the pro
prietors during hot weather.
Little Eleanor Mime, the eight
year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
J. L. Mime, gave a birthday party
Friday afternoon. She invited the
members of her class at school dur
ing the past session to be her guests.
After the guests were surfeited on
games and outdoor sport refresh
ments were served.
The people of Edgefield are grate
ful to the Southern railroad for the
splendid passenger schedule that is
now maintained. ^01 only is tho
time of the departures and arrivals
of the three trains a day each way
convenient, but the trains usually
make the schedules promptly.
Very soon the work of remodel
ling the college building will begin.
The interior will be changed to suit
the needs of the High School.
Edgefield will have one of the best
equipments in the stat? for a High
School and there is no good reason
why we ean not also ~h?ve a school
that will be second to none.
The intelligence of the death of
Rev. Whitefoid McKendree Dun
can, presiding elder of the Colum
bia district of the Methodist church,
caused much genuine sorrow among
his friends in Edgefield. He died at
his home in Columbia Monday
morning and was buried in the
graveyard of the Washington street
church of that city.
Miss Mamie Dunevent has been
eciployed to teach in the Williston
High School. She made a splendid
record at Winthrop during the en

Our young friend Afred Covar,
eldeBt son of Mr. and Mrs. A. B.
Covar, holds a responsible position
with Mr. W. M. Spencer, a laige
railroad contractor of Excelsior
Springs, Mo. Several days ago the
writer received a letter from Al
fred requesting us to give him some
information concerning the pro
posed electric road from Augusta
to Columbia. Possibly Edgefield
can induce Alfred and Mr. Spencer
to build ns a road from here to
Greenwood on credit.

Annual County Home Picnic.
On Tuesday of this week, the
Edgefield County Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union held the
annual picnic in commemoration of
the life of Jennie Casseday, the
originator of the Flower Mission.
For a number of years the W. C.
T. U. has observed this day, and
on Tuesday there were representa
tive? from Philippi, Harmon}',
Johnston, Edgefield and Colliers
unions. Each brought an abun
dant supply of delightful eatables,
and on a long table prepared by
Mr. Scurry, boxc- were filled with
chicken, meats of all kinds, salads,
cakes and pies, and bent to the va
rious homes where dwelt the seven
teen inmates of the county home.
Each one had also a gift presented
with their box, something that they
each most desired.
Although it was June the 10th,
the weather was as cold as Decem
ber and all who went, were almost
convinced that it was a Christmas
visit instead of the flowery month
of Juue. Mr. and Mrs. Scurry had
made ready alor all in the
most acceptable way, by having a
roaring fire, around which a large
circle gathered and planned tor the
serving of the dinner.
Coffee was served by Mr. and
Mrs. Scurry to all who partook of
the picnic dinner.
After everybody had been served
at the home and all the visitors, a
large box of eatables was given to
Mr. Edmunds for the chaiegang
and six boxes to the jail.
A religious service was held at
the chapel, over which Mr. Walter
Smith of the Harmony community
presided most acceptably, music
and the reading of the scriptures,
and a short talk by Mr. Smith com
posed the service.
