Edgefield Gains Good Citizen.
Having been eleoted to the posi
tion of weigher and assistant book
keeper of the Beaver Dam Mill,
Mr. Ernest Quarles will move his
family to Edgefield about the mid
dle of August and will occupy Mr.
R. C. Padgett's residence on Jeter
street. Mr. Quarles and his esti
mable wife will be very cordially
welcomed to Edgefield. We can
always make room for such good
Checking Up Books.
Notwithstanding the fact that
Edgefield has as capable and effi
cient county officials as any county
in the State, once or twice each
year a subcommittee from the grand
ury makes an investigation into
he records and vouchers of each
fifi ce. The subcommittee which is
compose this year of A. E. Padgett,
W. H. Dorn, P. B. Day, Jr., W.
L. Dunovant, J. R. Cantelou and
J. W. Stewart, began its work of
Attended District Meeting in
The district medical association
held itt quarterly meeting in Aiken
Monday. The Physicians who at
tended from Edgefield were Dr.
W. D. Oazts, Dr. J. N. Grafton
and Dr. EL A. Marsh. This dis
trict is composed of the counties of
Lexington. Saluda, Aiken and
Edgefield. These distiict conven
tions are always well attended and
much real b nefit is derived from
these meetings by the physicians.
Crops Recovering From Injury
Mr. H. W. Dobey was in town
Monday aud upon being: questioned
by The Advertiser's representative
as to the condition of the corn and
cotton that was injured, by the
hail in his section about a month
ago stated that the improvement
has been marvelous. Young ootton
was more seriously injured than
that which was more advanced, con
sequently the yield will be less.
The corn ha3 been cut off but not
so much as was expected at the time
the hail fell.
Entertained in Honor of Miss
The most elaborate and most
beautifully planned social function
of the season was the reception
given Thursday afternoon by Miss
Sophia Emma Dobson at "Fair
view," her elegant country home,
in honor of her cousin, Miss Maid
elle Boatright of Ridge Spring. In
vitations were issued to more than
half a hundred ladies of Edgefield
and vicinity. As the guests arriv
ed they were served with punch by
Misses Anna Hollingsworth and
Sophia Dobson, standing beneath a
large oanopy of pink flowers.
After a very pleasant social half
hour each guest was handed a score
card upoa which was printed in
gold the word "Fairview." Upon
this card was recorded the guesses
in the advertisement contest which
had been arranged by the hostess.
An examination of the cards at the
close of the contest showed that
Mrs. B. E. Nicholson possessed the
greatest gift in supplying the names
of the advertisments as suggested
by the clippings from magazines
and papers, consequently she was
awarded the prize, a pair of 6?k
hose. The sweltering heat of the
July afternoon was in a large meas
ure counteracted by the iced re
freshments that were beautifully
served. Pink ice cream was served
in blocks with the letter "J>" in
green in the centre, the same deco
ration and coloring being observed
in the cake which was served. Pink
and green heart-shaped mints were
also served. All of the refresh
ments were ordered by express from
the leading caterer of Atlanta.
Piney Grove Picnic.
The editor of The Advertiser ac
cepted an invitation Saturday to the
annual picnic at Piney Grove school
house which is located east of Phil
ippi ohurch, being about twelve
miles from Edgefield. After an
nouncing in what neighborhood the
picnic was held it is needless to add
that the day was pleasantly spent.
The journey was made in an hour
by means of an automobile, the car
being occupied by Messis. W. B.
Cogburn, James T. Mima, I?. E.
Nicholson, J. D. Holstein, Jr., and
the writer. Mr. Holstein who was at
the wheel on this occasion, as on
numbers of others, proved to be
an expert in handling an automo
As the weather and the crops are
about the only topics of conversa
tion in Edgefield county now, ex
cept among courting couples, we
naturally observed the farms very
closely as we sped along. From
the time we left Edgefield the crop
outlook steadily improved. Even
in the hail-stricken section the cot
ton and corn have "come out" won
derfully. Crops in the eastern sec
tion of this county are always more
forward by at least two weeks than
those of the western and northern
sections; and this year is no excep
tion. As we have already stated,
the appearance of the crops im
proved as we journeyed eastward,
the climax being reached when we
arrived at the home of Mr. Alvin
Derrick. Taken as a whole, we
believe his crop is unsurpassed in
the county. In the first place Mr.
Derrick has fine fresh land that is
as level as a dining tibie, and upon
it he grows splendid crops. In ad
dition tc knowing huw to do things
Mr. Derrick has the will and ener
gy to do them.
The attendance upon the picnic
was somewhere around 600, and a
more orderly occasion we have nev
er seen. The people gathered in
groups under the pines and chatted
informally until about one o'clock,
7hen all were invited to partake of
the splendid feast that had been
spread upon the long table. Besides
the usual picnic dinner an inexhaust
ible supply of hash was provided.
After the great throne: bad been
fed many baskets full were left.
Truly, the hospitality of the good
people of the Piney Grove commu
nity is unbounded.
The patrons of Piney Grove
school are greatly interested and
enthused over education, this being
evidenced to some extent by the
manner in which they have im
proved their school building. It is
well lighted, well ventilated and
beautifully painted inside and out.
Not yet satisfied with what they
have accomplished in the way of
providing an adequate school equip
ment, they are still raising funds
with which to make other improve
ments. The patrons of the school
sold iced drinks Saturday in order
to swell their treasury, realizing a
considerable sum by that means.
Early after dinner ahort addresses
I were made by Hon. B. E. Nichol
son, Rev. Mr. Booser, and Col. P.
B. Mayson. As some of our auto
mobile jparty had engagements at
Edgefield early in the afternoon,
the writer only heard the address
of Mr. Nicholson. He discussed
on a high plane, as is alwayd his
wont, some of the current issues.
Mr. Booser and Col. Mayson spoke
after the car bearing our party had
disappeared over the hills bound
The writer heard a numbet of ex
pressions commending the good
people of that and adjoining com
munities for their public spirit in
holding these annual picnics, which
bring the people together under the
the most wholesome influences. It
is now generally known that no dis
order of any kind will be tolerated
at Piney Grove, consequently the
[boisterous, liquor-drinking fellows
remain away. Nota drop of whis
key was in evidence, notwithstand
ing the close proximity to liquor
soaked Aiken couuty.
P. S.- We do uot intend to ap
ply a match to the kindling under
the traditional "political pot" by
referring to the matter, but it was
not difficult to discern that the
hand-shaking for the political jam
boree of 1914 has already begun in
Edgefield. Now this is entre nous,
and not intended to arouse the po
litical "bees." Let's keep them in
the hive until next May, if possible.
A Voice From Gettysburg.
E litor Advertiser: It is not my
intentiou to write up this great
gati "ring of the blue and gray. The
big ?i ?lies will do that. We ar
rived st Gettysburg June 30, 9.30,
with very few exceptions every
body ;s highly pleased, the air is
ladeu A- i th benedictions, the elec
tric currents bid us welcome, but
man air! nature with one acclaim
bid us ".ruest welcome. This is a
grand io union, and will in the end
prove a blessing to the whole coun
try. There never was one like it
in the history of the ages, nor there
never wi I! be the like again. Get
tysburg steped fifty years back in
the halo of history and looked
again upon an army of blue and an
array of gray, meeting at her door
steps to join in the semi-centennial
celebration of the greatest battle of
the war between the states, and to
show to the world that bullet and
saber scars are not so deep as the
feeling of American brotherhood.
Each day veterans in blue and gray
trooped into the little town which
lies so peacefully among the ever
lasting hills since Lee and Meade
turned their legions southward so
The officials estimate the number
of veterans up-to-date to be 45,000
probably the greatest array that
ever assembled on Gettysburg field
after Lee and Meade left it to glory,
and to history. The central figures!
ina wonderful picture, are these
veterans of *'the greatest fighting
force the sun ever shone on" shook
off the weight of age and fought
over again the battle that marked
the high tide of the confederacy.
They are here to honor the men
who fought and died on both sides
of the three days conflict of half a
century ago, and to commemorate
deeds of heroism unparalleled and
unequalled. It is an. army united
in sentiment, and united in fact;
for the blue linked arms with the
gray. They marched the duty road
together from the village; they sat
down at the same mess tables and
would tell M each other of their close
calls; and it there was any ranker
in any heart, any feeling of bitter
ness, it did not come to the sur
There is an unique flag dying in
the big camp tent which has been
an object of almost adoration to all
who have seen it, and it is agreed
that it accurately represents the
sentiments of every one. On one
side is the stars and stripes, on the
other a relic, the Confederate battle
flag. Beneath in white letters are
these historic declarations:
"Let us have peace.-Grant."
''Duty is the sublimest word in
I walked alone to-d y to where
Longstreet formed his line of bat
tle, and through the wheat-field,
and peach-orchard, down to the
foot of Little Round Top a dis
tance of about five hundred yards
or more, wi;ich was made at double
quick time, reaching the objective
point it was then war to the knife.
It was fifty ye irs ago this morning
since we made this charge, but I
could in mv imagination hear the
roar of the cannon, the whistling
bullets and the shouts of the men as
across the mtadow they flew sweep
ing the field with the bayonet. I
stand today 3, where Pickett form
ed his grand division of Virginians
to make the charge across Mission
Ridge to Little Round Top, a
charge that has gone down in histo
ry, story, and song, I can see his
picture now as he draws hie sword
from its scabbard in the evenirtg
? sunlight, with his long black hair
waving in the evening breeze, and
his eyes sparkling like the diamond,
and as he cried with a loud voice
tirat division, forward guide center,
and as I followed his line of battle
I could hear that same command
echoing through the meadow and
over the hills "guide center."
The battle flag of the 7th S. C.
Regt, did go back with me to Get
tysburg, and I unfolded it again on
the same plat of ground that it
floated just fifty years ago. It was
very popular among the boys in
blue. A number of ladies came over
and took the picture of the flag,
one lady toi?"1 rae that she had nev
er seen a confederate flag, and had
never talked with any perton from
the south before. This new meet
ing of the blue and gray, at this
battlefield will do more in bringing
about a better feeling between the
north and south than anything that
has ever taken place before in the
history of the nation.
I have never enjoyed any gather
ing in my life more than this, and
it is my opinion, after seeing and
hearing what I did, that everybody
was delighted while there, and went
away with a broader mind, a higher
idea of life, and a better man. Of
course there are men who did not
see it that way, and men who would
find fault with everything-, every
where. But it was more like an old
time Methodut love-feast, than any
thing else that I could think of,
each was glad to see the other,
every countenance was full of be
nign pleasure the whole time we
were there. Why should it not be
so, since we are a re-united country,
we claim protection under the same
flag, we are governed by the same
laws, we read the same Bible and
worship the same God, our future
hopes, and future destinies are the
same. 'The strife is over!"
