Mr. Owdom Urges Improvement
O? Augusta-Ninety Six Road.
Mr. Editor: I would like to say
something about the public road
from Augusta via Edgefield to
Ninety Six. From Augusta to
Edgefield it should be ' layed in the
sandy places and re-surveyed a part
of the way from Edgefield to Nine
ty Six. It should be graded and
contents put at all water places, so
that autos and such machines would
not have such jolts. Mr. Gaines
has suggested this movement after
he made one trip. Then people
that have to make merry should
help to put this road HO it will be a
pleasure to travel inste d of being
such a hardship on man and beast.
Our ancestors pulled over these
hills and through these sand beds
for the past 100 years, so the only
.way to get this in shape is io go to
?work on it. Everybody would be
benefitted and not any one hurt ex
cept other places which may be get
ting Edgefield's trade now. Au
gusta should give liberally to this
good road movement as it would
send many that way that are not
going now. The masses of the peo
ple don't generally go ahead them
selves. They have been waiting
until some good roads oolitisian
comes trying to ride into office
promising them that they will look
especially after their interests, but
all such has been a failure. So we
must po to work and have this
thing done ourselves. As your old
home is on this road and you have
always shown a desire to help in a
good cause and when you come
this way you may be called on to
make a Sunday school address and
if you have come a very bad road
you won't feel much like making

Oak Grove Academy Concert.
The following aecount of a school
closing which was published in the
issue of The Advertiser of January
5, 1859, will be of interest to many
of our readers.
Mr. Editor: I beg yoa to grant
me a little space in your columns to
9peak of a concert given by Mr.
Moses and hiR pupils of the
Oak Grove Academy, two miles
from Kirksey's Cross Roads, Edge
field district, S. C.
The concert took place in the
Olive Branch church near the
school house, on Thursday night
the y.3rd of December. As one of
the auditors I feel it would be un
just not to make some publie men
tion of the charming scenery and
music of that evening.
The home was lighted with un
common brilliancy and a fashion
able and appreciative assemblage
partook of the mental feast which
was gratuitously offered in due
time. In front of the pulpit a large
platform was erected upon which
two fine pianos rested. In the back
ground a frame work stood, from
which hung a red curtain and sev
eral handsome oil paintings, the
work, I think, of the music teacher.
The whole was interlaced with
sprigs of cedar.
Soon, in due order from behind
the curtain came forth twelve beau
tiful maidens from twelve to seven
teen years of age, dressed in elegant
ta6te. Their charming presence in
spired me with the idea of angela
come to whisper sweet things to us.
The playing and singing of these
pupils indicated fine taste and effi
ciency in the teacher, and native
talent and application in the pupils.
The duets plaj'ed at the same time
by four scholars on two pianos went
off with spirit and precision. "These
duets were accompanied by the
teacher on the violin which added
Lo the attraction.
The songs, duets and choruses
were judiciously selected and charm
"Gentle Annie" is a beautiful
and plaintive song which was sweet
ly expressed by Miss Emma An
drews, who pleased her hearers with
many more songs and polkas on the
''The world is full of beauty when
the heart is full oC love," "Ol Wil
lie we have missed you," "Would
I were with thee," "The shepherd
boys lament" with beatiful echo,
were most charmingly given by
Miss Harriet Devore, who also ex
hibited much skill in "Hoars there
were" with variations, new year's
aohoUisoh, etc., on the piano.

Miss Ida DeVore sang like a
sweet little bird "Come to the old
oak tree," which was repeated in
chorus by the interesting class.
The very fine duets "What are
the wild waves saying," "0, call
my brother back," were excellently
sung and played by Misses Harriet
and Beaufort DeVore.
"Uncle Sam's farm," "A few
days" "Come maidens come," were
bravely and beautifully expressed
by Eliza Bailey, who also played
"Rosalie ?schottisch" and other
things finely on the piano.
Mus Martha Stalnaker and Miss
Ida DeVore played duets handsome
ly together on the piano.
The pleasing dcet "When night
comes over the plains," ?was sweet

had not reoovered from a severe

The choruses "Sparkling and
bright," "Merry month of May,"
"How dear is the day," "We greet
with joy this happy dayy' "Come
away school mates," 4 Come out
out with me on this fine morning"
etc., were all admirably performed
by the beautiful twelve.
Mr. Moses occasionally played
and sung to the high gratification
of all. Just before the closing march
on two pianos and violin, Miss Ida
DeVore, in behalf of the pupils of
Oak Grove Academy, with abrief
and graceful speech, presented Mr.
Moses a beautiful gold pen and pen
cil and an elegant book in token of
esteem and appreciation of his ser
vices as their music teacher.
In'fine the whole entertainment
was highly delightful to all who
were present. '
Mr. Moses, from the New Eng

this country, is an acoomplished,effi

Most Children Have Worms
Many mothers think their chil
dren are suffering from indigestion,
headache, nervousness, weakness,
costiveness, when they are victims
of that most common of all chil
dren's ailments-worms, peevish,
ill-tempered, fretful children, who
toss and grind their teeth, with bad
breath and colicky pains, have all
the symptoms of having worms, and
should be given Kickapoo Worm
Killer, a pleasant candy lozenge,
which expels worms, regulates the
bowels, tones up the sy-tem, and
makes children well and happy.
Kickapoo worm killer is guaran

Making Law Mean Something.
Solicitor Hill of Spartanburg county,
has issued a call to the foreman of the
grand jury and all the magistrates in
his office tomorrow to discuss methods
of enforcing the criminal laws. Sell
ing cocaine and carrying concealed
weapons are two matters he proposes
to go into particularly. This appears
to be a very sensible thing to do,
doesn't it? Yet have you heard of its ev
er being done before? Why shouldn't all
officials and the people generally wake
up and put some ginger into law en
forcement? Isn't it about time to sit
up and take notice instead of shirking
the enforcement of law against crime!"
We refer to the attitude of our people
