Wednesday, October 1.
LOCAL AND PERSONAL,
Miss Josie Sheppard has entered
upon her duties as a teacher in a
graded school at Ward.
Misses Elizabeth and Jnne Rains
ford returned to Columbia last Wed
nesday to resume their studies at
the College for Women.
Miss Lillian Deas, a charming
young lady from Augusta, was the
guest of Miss Grace Dobson several
days last week.
Dr. F. Percy Byrd came over
from Batesburg and spent Sunday
here with his brothers, Mr. W. A.
Byrd and Dr. J. S. Byrd.
Some days now cotton wagons are
almost as numerous on the public
square as fertilizer wagons were in
Mr. J. S. Smith is at home again
after spending long enough in
Washington to get the Wilson ad
ministration started off properly.
* Miss Pauline Byrd will leave Fri
day for Laurens to teach foi the en
suing session the same school she
taught last year. \Ber services as
teacher gave entire satisfaction.
Another evidence of the increas
' ing popularity of the Edgefield cot
ton market is found in the receipts
here last week. The cotton weigher's
figures went up by leaps and bounds.
Mr. Jesse F. Ouzts, the efficient
jianager of the big store at Ouzts
. ville, was in Edgefield OB business
Saturday. Every fall he &elle a i.Tge
quantity of cotton feeed to th' r"
here and then makes heavy purr- !
chases of mc:.1 and hulls.
t The Advertiser inadvertently
overlooked last week the return of
Mr. Francis Sheppard to The Cita
del. Mr. Ira Armfield, a hand
some young brother of Mr. Roy i
Armfield, came by Edgefield while
en route to Charleston to enter
open his junior year at The Citadel.
Mr. Julian Key came over from
Columbia and spent the week-end
^"here with his parents. Mr. and Mrs.
*~ C. H. Key. We are inclined to the
belief, however, that the parental :
i . roof ?6 not the sole attraction ;in
Edgefield for this exemplary young
man. But who can blame him?
Doesn't it make a farmer smile to
receive around ?80 for a bale of cot- <
ton and the seed from the bale. But i
who can blame him? It makes the i
merchants and doctors smile about ]
as broadly as it does the farmer. The <
more cash farmers receive, the more 1
others in turn receive. <
Miss Sophie Lowrey, of Edgefield, <
S. C., arrived in Buchanan Sunday,
and will be found in the millinery
department at Strickland Bros, at
which place she made such a suc
cess last season. She would be pleas
ed to have her friends cal! upon her ,
at that place,-Buchanan (Ga) t
Who said Mrs. Pankhurst will be ]
invited to attend the state conven
tion of the Daughters of the Con- !
federacyr If she is coming, the
Daughters' must let the editor of 1
The Advertiser know in advance so 1
he can leave tewn or take the pre- j
caution to increase hi? life and
?fire insurance. 1
That new depot must be open to
receive the Daughters of the Con
federacy who will attend the con
vention from all parts of the state.
Unless the passenger accommoda
tions are good at the time the con
vention is filed, the hundred and
more ladies will go away with a
very unfavorable impression of
Edgefield,and who can blame them?
In this issue will be an announce
ment of the fall opening of the
Johnston Millinery Store which is
conducted at Johnston by Mrs. M.
E. Norris. She has made large pur
chases of fall hats and trimmings
and invites the ladies of every part
of the county to call at Johnston
Millinery Store and inspect the sty
lish fall millinery which is now on
Merchants should not worry be
cause business has not opened as
briskly as 13 or 14 cents cotton led
them to expect. The cotton which
has been sold haB for the mest part
been used to pay some pressing ob
ligations, which means that later
cotton will be spent for household
necessities that are sold in the stores.
The baaks and fertilizer dealers are
-having their day now and the mer
chants1 day will come later.

Card of Thanks.
We take this means of thanking

;he late illness of our mother, Mrs. r
Hattie Lanham. Words can not c

lave in our hearts. We hope somp
Jay to be able to give expression to

iess in return.

Rural Telephone Lines.
Edgefield county is backward in ?
:he matter of establishing farmers' *]
telephone lines. While there are (
several lines in the county a
:hat are satisfactory and prove to
oe a great blesuing to the owners
jf telephones, yet there are a num
ber of communities that greatly
need telephone connection with c
?ear-by towns and with adjoining c
rural communities. The Advertiser "?
has been informed that the South- J
ern Bell t Telephone Company will i
soon take up the matter of con- 1
structing rural lines in this county. ?
We trust that scores of farmers will ]
take this progressive, step, It means (
much, both socially and in a busi- i
ness way, for rural homeB to be con- i
nected with their neighbors and
with the market. Let's all work to
the end that a number of lines be
constructed over the county.

Meeting Closed Friday.
For more than ten days Dr. S. A.
Steel labored faithfully in Edge
field, closing tbe special services at
the Methodist church Friday night.
It is generally believed .that in ad
dition to the increase in the church
membership his efforts will result in
lasting good to the community.
There have been four' additions to
the Methodist church by letter and
fiye by experience as a result of the
Death of a Christian Woman.
Withont a sigh, withont a pain
and without a murmur, Mrs. Hattie
E. Lanham passed away early Sun
day morning at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. W. H; Dorn.. For
more than a year her health had
been steadily failing. Hoping that a
change would be beneficial, eight
months ago she went to Medina,
Ohio, and visited her son, Mr. T.
J?. Lanham, returning two weeks
ago. Instead of improving while
away from Edgefield she Bteadily
grew weaker. After coming back
home ber condition soon became
more acute, medical skill and the
most devoted ministrations of loved
ones failing to stay the malady.
For many years Mrs. Lanham has
been an angel of mercy in Edge
field. Her comforting presence was
always found in the sick room
whenever she was needed. This was
especially true during her younger
and more active years. She was a
consistent Christian, having been a
member of the Baptist church from
early life. Her memory will live
long in Edgefield and in the Anti
och community, where she was
reared, because of her kindly, sym
pathetic nature and because of her
readiness to serve others.
Before her marriage to Mr. T. J.
Lanham who died about 20 years
i go, Mrs. Lanham was Miss Hattie
Ed i ms. She leaves two daughter?,
Mrs. W. H. Dorn and Mr?. X "P.
Nixon, and one son, Mr. T. B.
Lanham, one brother, Mr. J. T.
Mims, one half-sister, Mrs. J. B.
&dams, and one half-brother, Mr.
M. A. Miras.
The burial took place Sunday af
:efnoon, the funeral service being
conducted by Dr. M. D. Jeffries.
Rally day last Sunday at the
Methodist church was a great suc
jess. About 20 new Sunday school
nerabers were added. The school is
crowing in good work also.

Avoid Sedative Cough Medi
If you want to contribute direct
ly to the occurrence of capillary
bronchitis and pneumonia use cough
medicines that contain cod i ne, mor
phine, heroin and other sedatives
when you bave a cough or cold. An
expectorant like Chamberlain's
cough remedy is what is needed. '
That cleans ont the culture beds or
breeding places for the germs of
pneumonia and other germ diseases. ,
That is why pneumonia never re
sults from a cold when Chamber
lain's cough remedy is used. It bas
a world wide reputation for its
cures. It contains no morphine or
other sedative. For sale by all deal
