horre to attend the fair none were
more cordially greeted than Mr.

Notwithstanding the fact that both
of them seem to be well pleased
with Georgia, we are constrained to
believe that they are home sick and

Death of Mr. Joseph Allen Mays.
Early Saturday morning last Mr.
Joe Mays died at his home near the
place where he was born 57 years
ago. His death after an illness of
only a few days was a great shock
to his friends. And who was not a
friend of Joe Mays? Where is the
individual who would utter an un
kind word concerning him? He had
his faults just as all other men
have, but his shortcomings were
not such as to cause others to suffer.
As r*. husband he was devoted, as a
oeighbor be was kind and consider
ate, as a friend he was loyal and
true, and as a citizen he was ever
ready to bear his share of every
responsibility or burden. He was
?descended from an old and greatly
honored Edgetield family, one
which has been actively identified
with the Horn's Creek section for
several generations The interment
took place Sunday afternoon in the
fam''y square at Horn's Creek
church, of which church he was a

voted wife. They bad no children.
He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Le

S. B. Mays and Mt. John M. Mays.
Meeting of Chamber of Com
Attention is directed to the call
for the meeting of the Edgefield
.Chamber of Commerce on next
Monday night in the court house.
It is important that there be a good
attendance as the object of the
meeting at Abbeville may meai
much to this section. Anderson, Ab
beville and Greenwood have be*m
working for the line mentioned for
some time past with assurance from
Edgefield that we would do our full
part whenever called on to aid in
the enterprise. The proposed line
will be 102 miles lone, unless it is
extended from Anderson to Easley
as is contemplated which would
make it much longer. Easlev will
be represented at the Abbeville
meeting. This line will open up as
a fine a section of eouutryas can be
found in South Carolina. At the
Abbeville meeting, tentative plans
will be m ide for the construction
of the line. It will be to the interest
of Edgefield to send a strong dele
gation to the meeting.
U. D. C. Meeting.
The regular monthly meeting,
XJ. D. C., was delightfully enter
tained at the residence of Mrs. H.
A. Smith, with Mrs. Smith and Miss
Charlton Dozier st hostesses. The
meeting was very largely attended
and plans for the coming conven
tion were enthusiastically discussed
Mrs. J. D. Holstein in her plans
is manifesting much wisdom and
astuteness and the whole chapter is
entering into her ideas with great
interest and unanimity.
All the committees were re-read
and a meeting of the chairmen wera
-called to discuss the necessary plans.
Lumhes were decided upon and a
number of the out-of-town members
who could not entertain visitors,
most graciously contributed whole
turkeys in as lavish a manner as if
these costly fowls were plain bis
cuits or corn dodgers.
Mrs. Woodson was added to the
Edgefield delegates as historian of
the chapter. After the business ses
sion, a short historical program con
ducted by Mrs. Woodson, was car
ried out, consisting of a poem read
by Mrs. B. E. Nicholson, a reading
by Mrs. J. L. Miras called 'The
pictures that hang on memory's
walls," written by J. Russell
W.ight of Johnston, and an illus
trated talk by Mrs. Susan B. Hill.
An elaborate salad course with
coffee and whipped cream was serv
The Theological C?as?.
This class will meet in the Pres
byterian church next Monday nigh
at 7:30 to discuss the attributes o
God. Our last meeting was quite ;
success, and everybody seemed wei
pleased. We hope to interest yoi
all again. Those who ever expect t<
attend, had better fall in line now
as we are moving forward and th<
present discussion will be related t<
all that follows. The exercise wil
be informal and those wishing tc
ask questions are at liberty to do so
All doctrinal differences will be net
tled by stating concisely the po"i
tion of the different schools, leavinj

To know more of God and to dt
more good is the prime object ol

Hurrah For The Colliers Band
Tiue to their promise, the Col
liers band came up last Friday anc
after escorting the parade to th?
fair grounds occupied the bant
stand and rendered a number of
appropriate selections while the pa
rade was being inspected by the
committee of judges. The Colliers
boys on I j lay claim to being ama
teur musicians but they played on
this occasion as finished band mas
ters. Our county is very proud of
the bright musicians of Colliers.
We doubt if there is another rural
commun.ty in the state that can
boast of so many well trained musi
cians. Every instrument was not on
ly well played but our Colliers hoyt
performed with the ease of veter
ans of the horn. Well done, young
men! The Advertiser most heartily
commends you and thanks you foi
your presence at the fair.

The Automobile Parade,
Thursday afternoon the automo
bile parade was the most attractive
feature of tne fair. There were four
cars. The ?rst to enter was the
handsome Packard car owned and
driven by Mr. Charles R. Dobson.
This was most beautifully design
ed in Southern smilax and thou
sands of white wisteria put on by a
professorial decorator from Augus
ta whose decigns have invariably
won prizes. Silting in che rear on
an elevation was lillie Elizabeth
Bailey who as ihe queen of th* but
leiflies from her seat of vantage,
drove an enorm nu butterfly which
appeared to be living in front and
pulling the car. Mr. D >bson and
Mist Grace Dobson occupied the
car. This car won the first Edge
field prize of $5 00.
The fi rsi prize won by an out of
lown car was $5.00 awarded to the
blue ami white oar representing the
Trenton Daughter* of the Revolu
tion, in which rode Mr. and Mrs.
J. D. Mathis and Mrs. Walter Mil
ler drexaed in colonial cos urnes. Un
the top of the car was fastened au
American eagle in gold and a fl ig
bearing the letters, "Liberty." Thia
car was rauch admired.
Dr. Tompkins' run-about was
occupied by James H. To npkins
and Miss Emily Tompkins. The
car was most artistically designed
in purple and white and won the
EdgehVd second prize.
The Edgefield Chronicle was rep
resented by iheir bande?me new
Ford car, to be presented as first
prize in their subscription contest.
This oar was decorated with adver
tisements of their contest appropri
ately designed in colored banners.
