Can't Sell Western Corn.
Several days ago the editor of
The Advertiser met a p-'.minent
drummer on the street who re
marked as he spoke that he had
something against us, and then
went on to say that we have been
writing so much about growing
oom at home that he is unable to
Bell any western corn. He stated
that in the past he had no difficulty
in selling almost any merchant in
the county 100 or more bushels of
corn but now these same merchants
laugh at a drummer who offers
western corn fo. sale, stating
that there is ample home-grown corn
in the community. Our reply was
that we are very grateful if The
Adveitiser has been the means of
curtailing to such a great extent
the shipment of western corn into
lie county, expressing the hopei
that the day is not far distant when j
no western corn will be shipped in.

Death of Dr. J. H. Carmichael.
It has been a long while ai nee thin
community was as greatly shocked
as it wa-t early last Sunday nitfhl
when the announcement was mnde
, that Dr. Uar III ich iel had passed
away at his home As on the day be
fore he was upon tbe street* and
attended to hit professional duties
! Ht) usual, but tew outside, of the
home, knew of his sickness. From
iii earlv hour Sunday he wa- some
what indisposed and pass.-d a po*
lion of the day in bed. Hui norie of
nia friends or the members of his
family realized that the indisposi
tion was nf a serious II alu re. Karly
in the ni^ht, about 8:3U o'clock, he
sat up for a few minutes and, ex
preying a desire for something '.?
eal, Mrs. Carmichael went in the
?titling mom for a triase of milk, and
upon lier return she found bim life
.e>a Tlie indisposition, whatever it
was, apparently affected his heart.
The ii loom that was ca*t over the
community, the expressions of re
gard and pro 0md Bonow ?hat were
heard from every one, thc ol ot-i itt; of
many places of business during the
funeral, the large attendance upon
the funeral in spite of the heavy
rain, the uumerous and very beauti
ful doral tributes, all of these bore
testimony lo the high place which
Dr. Carmichael filled in the commu
nity life and the very high esteem
entertained for him by his neigh
ou.'S and friends. In fact, had not
the weather been eo meiern, nt,
scores of friends from many miles
would have gathered to pay a last
i ri bute. He was beloved not only in
Edgefield and in the immediate vi
cinity but throughout the county.
Dr. Carmichael '^as reared near
Augusta but came to Edgefield"
about ?7 years ago and has made
his home in this county almost con
tiuuousiy since. During that time
he has in the practice of his profes
sion ministered to the sick and
suffering in hundreds upon hun
dreds of home'., and ha was alwaj>
as faithful in his attention to those
who were unable to compensate him
as he was to those who possessed a
goodly portion of this world's goods
Asidejfrom his professional skill,his
gentle,sympath- tu nature made him
an angel of mercy in many a sick
roora. Under all circumstances he I
was gentle, genial, jovial, cheerful,
his opsimistic spirit always nuking
those brighter and happier who
came in oontact with him. Dr. Car

Has Signed With Columbia
Mr. J. G. Holland went over to
Columbia Saturdav to confer with
ike manager of the baseball team of
the capital city and as a result of
the conference he wa* employed for
the approaching season. His friends
here are delighted that he will bn

had the following to say:
''Joe Holland, former star base
ball and football player ?t Clemson
college and for several season* a
sncces-.ful performer in professional
ball, haa come to t-rms with the Co
lumbia club, and Manager Harbison
announced yesterday that Holland
would be a member of the 1?14

come as pleasant news to Columbia
fans. He is well known all over the
"Holland was last season with
Asheville in the North Carolina
'eague. His record for the season is
good. He batted .292 and led the
ou fielders of the league in fielding,
making a lone eriror during the sea
"Mr. Holland spent yesterday in
Holumbia, and hf is delighted that
baoeballl events have taken such a
turu ai lo allow him lo play for the
capital city of his home state. A

ball official, acting as nra ni re in
several important big battles last
season and during previous seasons.
"This was the only big happen
ing yesterday in Columbia's base
bill camp. With Holland in tow,
the management has a right to feel
easier, for in getting him, a good
all-round, beady ball player has
been secured. Holland was offered
the mauagdment of the Roanoke
dub of the Virginia league for this
season but refused the offer."
Too Many Farmers Haye Stoop
Io almost any gathering of farm
ers one can see many men who are
bowed and round shouldered, many,
if not most of them, prematurely.
This is largely a matter of habit, 1
though, of course, hard work, and
especially hard work on young mus
cles, has a great deal to do with it
in many cases.
No habit can be worse for the
general health than that of stooping.
In the straight figure every organ is
in its no rm .Vi place, each working
with the least possible amount of
friction and loss. The abdominal
organs are properly supported, al
