Exhibit of Majestic Ranges
One of the most attractive exhib
its at the oounty fair, one that al
ways pleased the ladies as they
passed, was that of the celebrated
Majestic ranges which are sold by
Messrs. Jones & Son. No kitchen is
.complete without a modern range
and there are no ranges on the mar
ket that are superior to the Majestic.
Dozens of ladies in Edgefield and
vicinity are singing the praises of
the Majestic ranges. The exhibit at
the fair was very creditable and
was generally admired.

An Appeal For The Orphanage.

from Dr. A. T. Jamison, the super
intendent of the Connie Maxwell
Orphanage, stating that only $439
of the $900 pledged by the Edge
field association for the support of
the orphanage for the current year
has been paid up to this time. The
pastors in the. association should
take a collection at once for the or
phanage and send it to Dr. Jamison
in order that our association may
meet its pledge. As tho convention
al year closes November 30, there
are but ten days left. Prompt action
should be taken by all of the church

Bright, Sweet-Spirited Contest
Mrs. K. L. Norris, the lady from
Jacksonville, Fla., who is managing
The Advertiser's contest, says she
has never in her experience of five
years had brighter, more amiable
or sweeter spirited contestants than
those who have entered our contest.
It is always a pleasure for her to
greet them in the office. The con
test which The Advertiser conduct
ed so successfully three years ago
was exceedingly pleasant from start
to finish. The young ladies then,
just as the contestants now, found
much real pleasure in their work.
When the end came there were ne
heart-aches or wounded feelings.
They were then all rewarded in pro
portion to the work they did, and
that will be the case iu this contest.
Every young lady who enters the
contest and does active work to the
close will receive a prize which she
will value all along down through
the years, being a pleasant reminder
of The Advertiser's contest.
