An Appeal From Mr. T. A.
1 want to ask for a few more
-wjrds in your paper in regard t<
getting a jrood road from Edgefield
to Augusta. We should ask the
legislators to pass a special act t<>
?empower the county boards of Ai
ken and Edgefield te clay the road
from Belvedere to the 16-mile post.
I suppose $4,000 would do the
.work and this would be of great
help to the fellow with the 1-horse
and 4-horse team and much to the
fellow with an auto. Anyone from
30 to 35 miles can carry produe*
and return tu Augusta in a day's
.time. I know much of the needs of
this work being done on this sand
road for I have traveled it on foot,
horse back, io buggy and wagon
and if the law makers bad to travel
it and know how bard it is to get
along with a light load and how
hard it is on man and beast, the\
surely *ould grant this n quest. So
if we can't get the trolley line let
Ha have the sand and clay line.

Mrs Annie Cheatham Norman
The friends of Mrs. Dr. Norman
of North Augusta, nee Miss Annie
Cheathem, and of ber parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Walter Cheatham. were
.bocked by the announcement in the
papers Moaday morning that Mrs.
Norman was thrown from an auto
mobile near Augusta Sunday morn
ing, death resulting in a short time.
Mrs. Norman was greatly beloved
in Edirefield. Be>ides many rela
tives, she had a host warm personal
friends here. When as a child and
as a yoting lady she visited in Edge- j
?eld she was always most affection
at el y greeted, her gentle mannei
and kindly, sweet spirit makim.1
friends of ail with whom she came
in contact. Everybody loved Annie
^beatham, who in December mar
ried Dr. Norman, a prominent
young dentist of Augusta.
The Advertiser extends sympath\
to her devoted parents, brother an?1
sisters. The funeral took place ai
Hardy's church Moneay, the Rev
P. B. Lanham conducting the fun
Crowned With Full Fruition.
Just as the reaper goes forth and
garners the eolden sheaves that ar?
ripe unto the harvest, so in callint
Mr. James T. Ouzts up higher th?
Great Harvester brought to a clos<
a life that was crowned with ful'
fruition. He died at his home ai
Elmwood early Tuesday morning
after being ill with acute indiges
tion for only a few hours. He bad
passed his eightieth mile post. On
the 30th of December Mr. Ouztt
celebrated his 80th birthday with a
family re-union. He was alwaye
prudent and temperate in his habits,
consequently his health was unusu
ally good for one of such an ad
vanced age. His mind was strong
and vigorous and in body Mr. Ouzth
was as active as many men 10 oi
20 years his junior. The unexpeo
. ed announcement, of his death
Tnesday morning was a surpris?
and shock to his Edgefield friends.
Not only on account of his ripe
??ld a?e and larne experience bul
also because of his splendid judg
ment and sound discretion Mr.
Ouzts' advice and counsel were fre
quently sought. Among his neigh
bors and friends he wielded a potent
influence that was always whole
some and helpful. He possessed de
cided business acumen, always man
aging his farm and other interests
with signal success. Mr. Ouzts
was a God-fearing man, an active
member of McKendree church,
from which he will be buried tim
ifternoon at three e'clock.
He was a staunch friend of Tb*
Advertiser, his death depriving itt
editor of a personal friend whom
we shall greatlv miss. He nevei
came to Edgefield without calling
at The Advertiser office, always
speaking words of encouragement
lo those who make the paper. In
return for this kindly sympathy and
also because of his h aviug been a
subscriber for so many years, the
paper has been sent to him for ?
decade with the compliments of tin
editor. And henceforth for his
sake we shall ask the privilege ol
sending The Advertiser to Mrs.
Mr. Ouzts is survived by b\>
wife, six daughters, Mrs. Corri?
Adams, Mrs. J. 0. Herin, Mrs..!
M. Shaffer, Mrs. W. H. Harting.
