Edgefield County has two vacant
four year scholarships at Clemson
College. This means that two of
our boys can be titted for work
through life, and it may be a sur
prise to announce that these two
scholarships went by default last
year because the only two appli
cants failed to make the required tiO
per cent for entrance. Edgefield's
boys must not let such opportuni
ties pass, and I shall expect at least
thirty in the Court House for the
examination Friday, July 11th.
We also have one-year agricultur
al scholarship. This examination
is different from the o:ie for four
year scholarships, but will be held
on same date. Youi State gives
you these, boys, so come for them.
Work will begin prompt by at

The Johnston Baptist Church.
To th? First Baptist Church of
Edgefield, S. C.,-Greeting.
Dear Brethren: At a called con
ference of our church, held last eve
ning after prayer-meetiug, the un
dersigned was directed to convey to
you the heartfelt and sincere sym
pathy of this church for you in the
loss of your House of Worship. The
Providences of our Father are oft
times mysterious, but they embrace
and include all the ills and acci
dents of Life. If this be His will,
and no one will question it, then it
is well- Praise His Name.
This whole community, and es
pecially our church, is stirred on
account of your loss; and expres
sions of regret and sympathy are
heard on all sides. No one doubts
the courage of your noble band.
May the House be a beautiful
building, where the Father will
meet his children. We pray for
T. R. Denuy,
Baptist Church Will be Rebuilt.
Wednesday of last week while
The Advertiser was being printed
the Baptist church was destroyed
by fire. During an electric storm
lightning struck the church spire,
causing it to ignite. A large num
ber of people responded promptly
to the alarm but owing to the great
height of the spire and roof it was
impossible to extinguish the flames.
Practically everything in the build
ing was saved and doubtless can be
utilized in some way in furnishing
the new church.
Until a new house of worship is
erected the members of the church
will hold their regular services in
the High School building. After the
service in the school auditorium
Sunday morning a business session
was held. It was decided that from
the $5,200 insurance all indebted
ness of the church, amounting to
$1,200, be paid at once. In addition
to the site, the members have about
?4-,OOO as a nucleus for a building
fund. A committee was appointed
to consider the matter of rebuilding
at once, bemg instructed to report
as early as possible to the church.
At the conference Sunday morning
the resolutions, which are published
elsewhere in this issue, were adopt
ed. Resolutions of sympathy from
the Johnston Baptist church and
letters from Rev. T. P. Burgess
and Dr. C. E. Burts were also read.
A beautiful incident in connec
tion with the conference Sunday
morning occurred while the indebt
edness of the church was being: dis
cussed. When the church purchased
the pipe organ several years ago a
certain sum of money was borrowed
from Mrs. M. E. Barker in order
to complete the payment in full to
the organ manufacturers. The
church still owed Mrs. Barker a
portion of the original loan. Wheo
the organ was mentioned in con
nection with the fire, Mrs. Barker
stood .n clear, gentle tones
suited that she would donate the
amount of the note and interest to
the church, the total amount being
about 8425. The thanks of the
church were extended to this Chris
tian lady by a .rising vote.
Rid Your Children of Worms
You can change fretful, ill-tem
pered children into healthy, happy
youngsters, by ridding them of
worms. Tossing, rolling, grinding
of teeth, crying ou' while asleep,
accompanied with ?ntense thirst,
pains in the stomach ind bowels,
feverishness and bad breath, are
symptoms that indicate worms.
Kickapoo worm killer, a pleasant
candy loz?nge, expels the worms,
regulates the bowels, restores your
children to health and happiness.
Mrs- J. A. Brisbin, of Elgin, III.,
says: '*1 have used Kickapoo worm
killer for years, and entirely rid my
children of worms. I would not be
without it. " Guaranteed. All drug
