Edgefield's Cotton Market.
For the sellers of produce to be
pleased is the highest endorsement
that any market can rece ive. Far
mers from considerable distances
are bringing cotton to Edgefield,
and after selling, say they are pleas
ed with the price received. There
are six or seven buyers here who,
judging from the active bidding,
seemsto be anxious io purchase the
staple. The "proof of the pudding
is m the eating," so do not take
The Advertiser's word for it but
bring some cotton to Edgerield and
test the market for yourself. Do
not wait till the gale makes a quan
tity of "storm" or stained cotton
but bring an average sample and
see what the prioe will be. Of course
Edgefield will pay as much as any
other market for stained cotton, but
the point is do not wait and bring
stained cotton then expect the top
of the market for it.
Young People Off For College.
Edgefield is now experiencing a
calm after a storm. Because of the
many young people who came home
from college in the early summer
and the many college friends who
have visited them during vacation,
there has been a constant whirl of
social gayety in Edgefield for the
past four months. However, they
are all returning to college for an
other session, leaving a dead calm
behind. The first installment de
parted yesterday for colleges in this
and other states.

This was very encouraging to
me. The doctors want everybody
to believe that a person taking the
baths munt be under the treatment
of a doctor while taking hot watei
baths and they have made it a Yule
among themselves to take no case
I had my doctor to examine mc
thoroughly and to give the direc
tions how to take hot water treat
ment. The third day after I arriv
ed I went to the Backstaff bath
house and commenced my baths, r J
had heard so much of the bathe
there I did not know how I would
like them but to my surprise I en
joyed them and was anxious each
morning to take the baths about 9
or 10 o'ciock.I soon found I did not
need any doctor's treatment for the
baths. My tenant knew what I
needed as well or better than a doc
tor. I had a friend from Oklaho
ma who roomed with me that had
no doctor. We went together ali the
time,took our baths,he and fared ts
well as I did with the baths. I had
to walk about a half mile to the
bath house. I did very well. 21
baths are cal I jd a full course at a
cost of $13. I also took 12 electric
treatments that cost $1(3. I do not
think the electric treatment did
much good but I went there to get
all out of the treatments I could so
I did all that was required to be
done. Now, the results. When I
went to Hot Springs I weighed 115
pounds. After taking the baths,
which are weakening I left weigh
ing 111 pounds. I now weigh 120
pounds, and have a better appetite
and feel nicely every way. The
aching pam in my hip has left me,
mueles in my thigh are sore and
caused me to limp when I put my
weight on my leg. The doctors
and others said who knew my case
insisted on my staying two weeks
longer. This I ought to have done
but as I had gotten so weak, being
among strangers, I concluded to
come home, hoping to still get more
benefit from my treatment. I still
am in hopes that my leg will get
strong and be at my self again, if J
not I intend to go back again. It, j
will do a well man good to take a
course of treatment at Hot Springs.
I met men from every State in the
Union. We did not know each
other by name but would ask what
state they was from. There was 35
to 50 boarding at the same hotel I
was at. I learned to like them all.
They were comirg in and going out
every day. I was well pleased with

Now, for the place of Hot Springs. I
You can not see much of it at a time i
as it is between two mountains.
There are many costly houses there.
I attended the Methodist church
three Sundays. The church cost
$50,000, the organ $5,000 and aR
paid for. The congregation was
large each Sunday. Ladies and
gentlemen dressed neatly but did
not seem to want to make a display
of their dress. I learned to like the
place and people.
After I had taken my 21 baths,
being there 23 days, I left at one
o'clock on Thursday taking open
cars to Memphis. I reached Mem
phis at 7. lo.Took a sleeper at Mem
phis at nine o'clock* and arrived in
Atlanta at 12.40 next day, then
took a Pullman car at 3 o'clock to
Augusta reaching Augusta at 9.10,
spent the night in Augusta and took
the morning train to Johnston.
The country from Augusta to Hot
Springs through Georgia I did not
see any nice farming land and
through Alabama the land did not
look well to farm on but through
the part of Mississippi I liked it
fine.The crops looked good. I did not
see much of Tennessee from Mem
phis across the Mississippi river to
Little Rock. The land is flat and
some part of it is swampy. I would
not like to live, there as I know"' it
is not healthy. ' From Little Rock,
Ark., to Hot Springs the land is
broken and did not look like good
farming lands. The crops from
Augusta to Hot Springs did not
look to suit me. Cotton did fairly
well but the corn waa short except
in some spots. Crops in Mississippi
were good. When I got over in
South Carolina everything looked
better to me. Of all the places I
have seen this Ridge land and coun
ty for good crops every year and
health and morals of the people is
a head of anything I ever have seen.
So there is no place like home. Since
I have come home I do not know
how to value our lands on this
Going to Hot Springs and back
will pay me for all it cost me to
make the trip while I know it did
me good otherwise. My total ex
pense there and back was $142,
you can make it cost more if you
like. You ean get board from one
dollar a day to $15 a day. I did not
go there to spend money, I went for
health and to see the country, so I
think?l am well paid. I can go
again and get the treatment I
want at the cost of about $80. I
I was as much interested in the
the farms on the road as anything
else, as I was better posted on that
line than anything else.
I wish now to thank all who
wrote me such nice letters and all
that seemed to be interested in my
health and welf ire. I will remem
ber them as my friends and wish
them all well. \

Statement From Mr. Broad
As there has been some com
plaint as to cotton packed on my
press which is standard size, I de
sire to publish the following, letter '
from Barrett & Co., of Augusta,
Mr. Barrett being the president of ,
the cottou exchange.
Mr. A. B. Broadwater,
Johnston, S. C.
Dear Sir-: I have your esteemed
favor of the 11th. It is only neces
sary that cotton should be packed
in presses measuring 27 by 54. If
the bale bulges an inch ol two after
it comes out of the press, no penal
ty will be incurred. The object of
the penalty is to cover irregular size
bales that are not pressed in stand
ard gin boxes.
Yours very truly.
Barrett & Co.
I publish this letter in justice to
those whose cotton is packed on my

Hurrah For Parksville!
The good people of Parksville
shut up shop yesterday and to ?
man wen: out to Parks' mill and
worked the public road leading to
town. This was commendable en
terprise and public spirit. The citi
zens of the town and surrounding
uommuaity came together and gave
a free road working. Supervisor
Edmunds was there with his road
working force and did well the ^
county's part in improving the road
leading to Parksville. This dona
tion of about 100 days service on
the part of the people of that vi
cinity wiil bring large returns. Im- ,
prove the road leading to a market '
and you will increase the quantity of
produce that is sold there and in
the same proportion the volume of
businesss of the town will be in
creased. There are other towns and
communities that can profit by the
splendid example that the people of
Parksville nave set.
Supervisor Edmunds wants it dis
tinctly understood that the govern
or of Missouri copied after him
wheu he proposed to the people all
over the state that they come to
gether on a certain day and work
the public'roads. Mr. Edmunds says
be began thiu new system of road
corking when he was [down in
Meriwether last spring. The good
people there rallied to his assist
ance just as they did <at Parksville
