A Word of Warning.
Oar handsome young friend Jun
ios Bailey of Johnston who graduat
ed from the Newberry college last
summer is now making business (?)
trips to Edgefield on Sunday after
noon, and if he doesn't mind some
of the young men in this part of the
country will put him out bf busi
ness. Already we have heard one
say, "Junius Bailey had better shin
ny on his own side." Knowing the
?reat danger our young friend is in,
we issue this friendly word of warr
B. M. I. Opening.
Greenwood, Sept. 26.-Bailey
Military Institute, South Carolina's
newest educational institution, be
gan its first ."session yesterday with
every available room in the bar
racks occupied. Many applications
had to be rejected. The school is
headed by Col. F. N. K. Bailey,
formerly of the S. C. C. I. of Edge
field, and the people of this city see
a bright future for this institution.
The school's equipment is the most
modern in the state. It is situated
on a ten-aore campus on one of the
prettiest sites in the city. Two large
and handsome brick buildings, bar
racks, and administration building
constitute the school's splendid
The Woodward Lumber Com
An old and very reliable lumber
?company of Augusta asks for a
share of the patronage of the people
of this section. We refer to the
Woodward Lumber Company which
has made a splendid reputation for
thoroughly reliable dealing. It is
equipped wich the most modern ma
chinery and tarns out the most beau
tifully finished material of every
kind that is used in building of all
kinds. They will make estimates
and submit prices if you will make
your wants kn own fe) them either in
perron or by mail. The men at the
head of this large establishment
have had long years of experienoe
and are fitted for serving the pub
lie to the best possible advantage.
A Satisfactory Cotton Market.
Already cotton is being hauled a
long distance to Edgefield. Before
the season is over we expect to see
the staple brought 20 miles and
more to this market. After work
ing hard all the year, it behooves
the cotton grower to sell where he
can realize the most for the product
?of his labor. Bring your cotton to
Edgefield as long as it is a good
market, and when the market here
falls short of what it should be
then carry your cotton elsewhere.
But farmers who have sold cotton
both at Edgefield and ocher places
this season do not fail tu say they
are pleased with the price paid by
the buyers at this place. There is
no doubt that Edgefield is giving
the cotton growers a good market
J. Willie Levy Company.
We call the attention of our read
ers this week to the new advertise
ment of the J. Willie Levy Compa
ny of Augusta in which this popu
lar storo tells its Edgefield friends
of its readiness in all departments
to serve them. In addition to a well
selected stock of the celebrated
"High Art" clothing for men and
boys, the Levy store has a well
GQ?ipped ladies' department OD its
second floor that is second to none
in Augusta. The ladies are not only
invited to visit this department to
see the most stylish garments of the
season but they are invited to maka
the Levy store their shopping head
quarters while in the city. We have
always found the J. Willie Levy
Company to be thoroughly dependa
ble in every respect.
Large Class in Music.
The large music class of the Hisrh
School is a substantial compliment
to Miss Marcie Gwaltney, the mu
sic teacher of the school. Notwith
standing the fact that there are sev
eral private schools in town that
receive pupils at a lower rate than
the price fixed by the trustees for
the High School, Miss Gwaltney
has as many girls as she can teach.
The trustees were fortunate in se
curing the service of so talented a
teacher as Miss Gwaltney. We make
the statement without fear of suc
cessful contradiction that the fe
male colleges of the state have no
more superior musical talent than
the head of the music department
of the Edgefield High Sohool.

will until further notice give illus
trated talks at the Methodist church
every Thursday evening on his trip
abroad last summer. These interest

Arrived Last Night.
Rev. T. B. LaDham arrived last
night in Edgeneld, having left his
far-away home in Medina, Ohio, as
soon as he received the announce
ment of the death of his mother,
Mrs. Hattie Lanham, early Sunday
morning. He Wfuld have reached
Edge6eld Monday night had he not
missed connection in Cincinnati.
Mr. Lanham's friends have greeted
him very affectionately and deeply

Seriously Injured by Fall.
The Edgefield friends of ?Mr.
Johu T. Nicholson were deeply
pained to hear of his serious injury
last week. While walking from
his home to Ridge Spring he fell
while in the act of stepping across
a ditch, fracturing his hip. It is
greatly feared that he will never be
able to walk again. We are de
lighted to report however tLat he is
resting comfortably and that his
condition is somewhat improved.
Death Removes a Prominent
The sudden death of Mr. James
U. Rives at his home at 8:30 o'clock
Monday night was a great shock to
the community. His friends knew
that he had been somewhat indis
posed for a week or more but did
not suspect that his disability was
of a serious nature. He was at his
store a part of Monday and went
driving in the afternoon. Surely,
this emphasizes the fact that 'In
the midst of life we are in death."
Mr. Rives was born and reared
near Montgomery and spent his ear
ly life in Alabama. When he first
came to South Carolina he looated
in Columbia and was for a number
of years connected with one of the
largest dry goods establishments in
the capital city. Later he moved to
Aiken and embarked in the mercan
tile business there very successfully
for a number of years. About five
years ago he and his younger broth
er, Mr. E. S. Rives, came to Edge
field and purchased the dry goods
business of the lamented James M.
Cobb and have, since coming to
Edgefield, by dint of hard work and
close application to business, steadi
ly increased the volume of their dry
goods business. It is probable that
this unceasing application, day af
ter day and sometimes far into the
night, caused Mr. Rives' physical
Mr. Rives was not a self-centered
or self-seeking man. On the contra
ry, he was generous and public
spirited, being willing to bear his
share of the community's burdens,
whether these pertained to the
maintenance of the school, churches
or in the advancements of the town's
interests materially. Realizing that
he was always willing to spend and
be spent for the community's wel
fare, the people of his ward elected
him a member of the town council
two years ago, and in that capacity,
as well as in every other where duty
called him, Mr. Rives was loyal and
faithful in the discharge of duty as
he saw it.
Being genial and affable in man
ner, .Mr. Rives rapidly made friends
after locating here, and while he
still loved Aiken and her people,
which was quite natural, yet he was
loyal to Edgefield. This was now
his home and he endeavored to be
helpful in every way possible. He
was a n.graber of the Baptist church
from early manhood, bringing his
membership with him when he
came to lildgefield. The funeral will
take place in Aiken tb-day at one
o'clock, his pastor, Dr. M. D.
Jeffries conducting the funeral.
Other friends will accompany the
family to Aiken.
Mr. Rives was in the 53td year
of his age, and is survived by his
wue, four daughters, Mrs. J. H.
Nicholson, Misses Maude, Gladys
and Elizabeth Rives, one sister,
M rs. Ora Myers, of Aiken, and two
brothers, E. S. and G. J. Rives, the
latter being a.resident of Greenville.
