THE CORNER STORE
Mr. and Mrs. J. A Millford, of
Greenville, have announced the en
gagement of their daughter, M?BS
Dora, to Prof. R. B. Curry, of
?Greenwood, the wedding to take
place in Greenville. December 5th.
Raise More Livestock.
Why are there not more pastures
in the county such as Mr. Yancy
Bryan nason Horn's Creek? Surely
the scarcity of beef cattle will war
rant the building of other and lar
ger pastures. Friday we saw Mr.
George Adams of our town driving
a large "bunch" of cows and year
lings to his pasture west of Edge
field near the Key bridge. The boli
weevil and the ''black root" in cot
ton will force the farmers to diver
sify their intereats, giving more at
tention to livestock. Why will thev
not begin before they are forced?
School Grounds Improved.
Through the efforts of the com
mittee recently appointed the High
School grounds have been greatly
improved. Old ditches anu gullies
have been filled and new terraces
and ditches made in the proper
place. Superintendent T. J. Lyon,
with the aid of the lady teachers

ment if ter the session opens. Grass,
shrubbery and flowers will be plant
ed. Edgefield has one of the most
picturesque school properties in the
? tate, and there is no good reason
why it can not be made the luost
beautiful. Let us build upon what
nature has given us. We feel confi
dent that the ladies of Edgefield
will at the proper time gi^e Maj.
Lyon and the lady teacLers their
full co-operation when an effort is
made to beautify the campus.
Farmers Will Sow Vetch.
We have been greatly encourag
ed by learning upon inquiiy that
more farmers will sow vetch this
fall than usual. The Advertiser re
cently bought 100 pounds of seed
that we will sow the last of Sep- ,?m
ber or early in October. Do not
wait till all of the cotton is harvest
ed, if you expect to sow vetch in
stalk land, but follow the pickers
with the plow, say after the second
or third picking. It will be too late
to obtain satisfactory results if you
wait nntil all of the cotton is Open
and picked. We have no hesitancy
in saying to farmers who have never
tried vetch that it is better than
sowing peas in summer. The only
difference is that the land must be
inoculated or ebe results the first
year will bo disappointing.
Do Thou Likewise.
Mr. H. Y. Dorn stopped the wri
ter on the street a few days ago and
said: "I have sold my first bale of
cotton and want to pay another
year for my paper out of it." There
are several hundred other subscrib
ers who should follow Mr. Dom's
example. Why wait for us to mail
you a statement? Your label shows
to what time you have paid. As we
have carried you all summer, will
you not come in and settle prompt
ly as you sell cotton?

An Enthusiastic Meeting.
One of the most representative
and at the same time one of the
most enthusiastic meetings ever held
in Edgefield was that in the court
house Monday night by the mern
bera of the chamber of commerct
and other citizens who met for th?
purpose of discussing the matter ol
securing a trolley line from Augus
ta to Gleenwood by way of Edge

who discussed different phases ol
the matter, each one evidencing ac
active interest and a determination
which we confidently believe will
ultimately result in something tan'

made when subscriptions were call

short time a considerable sum wae

A. Strom being the largest sub

and Mr. S. T. Williams also put
down generous amounts. Our own
people also subscribed generously.
The people to the north of Edge
field mean business in this matter as
much so as those who reside at the
county seat. Hon. J. P. DeLaugh
ter was present, representing the
lower part of the county, and he
also spoke enthusiastically, backing
up his interest with a substantial

zema and Skin Eruptions.

ing. Skin emptions cause them not
only intense suffering, but hinder
their growth. Dr. Hobson's Eczema

their life miserable. "Our baby was
afflicted with breaking out of the
