Lives at Home.
Mr. Luther Brunson was in town
Monday looking for receptacles for
his home-made syrup. With an
abundance of home-made biscuits
and home-made pyrup about the
place, he will have no difficulty in
keeping tiie "wolf" from the door.
We believe that Dr. Wylie will
agree with us in saying that no bet
ter diet can be found for children
than home-made syrup, the kind
that doos not need the "pure food"
label. It's a pity that there are not
more home-made things about the
average homo and fewer tin cans.

Edgefield county, is a leading young
lawyer of the Lexington bar. He is

his profession. Many admiring
friends will eagerly look forward
to the Reel-Callison marriage.
