A Negro Killed.
A negro was killed by another
negro on the plantation of Mr. Geo.
Swearingen Sunday night. We
have been unable to learn the names
of the negroes or the particulars
leading up to the killing, except
that one negro forced his way into
the house of another, believing that
his wife was in there, and was shot
on entering the house. It is reported
that an inquest was held and that the
jury rendered a verdict to the effect
that the killing was jusifiable homi
Are Planting Better Seed.
Farmers are now paying more at
tention to the kind and quality of
seed they plant than they have ever
.done before. One evidence of this
is found in the fact that many of
the merchants carry a tull assort
ment of the choicest field and gar
den seed. A few years ago it would
have been impossible for them to
?ell these seed, while now they can
-scarcely supply the demand. An
other evidence too is that farmers
-do not hesitate to pay three, four
and five dollars for a bushel of im
proved corn or cotton seed, while
a few years ago half of tnis sum
would have appeared to be an ex
orbitant price. Money spent for
good seed is a wise investment.
Annual Meeting of Bank.
The stockholders of the Bank of
Edgefield held their 25th annual
meeting at noon yesterday, and the
statement that has been issued shows
that the institution has had a very
prosperous year, the net profits for
the year being 17 per cent. Of this
amount 10 per cent was ordered
paid out at once as an annual divi
dend to the stockholders and the
remainder was passed to the ac
count of undivided profits and sur
plus, which is now ?34.000. The
bank's capital is $57,400.00 and it
has deposits of 8249,947.67 and
loans aggregating ?302,657.03. The
bank does not owe a dollar for bor
rowed money. The following offi
.cers were re-elected : J. C. Sheppard,
president; B. E. Nicholson, Vize
president; E. J. Mims, cashier; J.
Airen, iSsistUW'UilllBil "Ifiilg 1
was no change in the board of di
rectors except the election of E. J.
Mims a director to fill the place
made vacant by the withdrawal of
J. Wm. Thurmond from the board.
Last Lyceum Entertainment.
The last entertainment of the
lyceum course will be given in the
opera house Friday night by the
Alkahest Artists Company, which
is composed of three very talented
young ladies. A miscellaneous pro
gramme will be given, consisting
of vocal and instrumental music,
readings, recitations and impersona
tions. This entertainment should
be largely patronized in order that
the managers may make the bal
ance that is due on the entire course.
If the attendance is small Friday
night there will be a deficit that
will have to be paid by the manag
ers personally. The entertainment
is worth the price of .".imission and
more. If you attended such an
entertainment in a city it would
cost more than tickets are sold for
in Edgefield. Be sure to attend so as
to contribute to the financial success
.of the course as well as to contribute
to your own personal pleasure. In
contracting for the season's course
.the managers were actuated by pub
lic spirit motives aud we do not
want to see them lose money.

Pure Water Supply.
A recent bulletin that deals with
the water supply for farm homes has
just been issued by the United States
Department of Agriculture. This
bulletin should be in the hands of
every Southern farmer, and applica
tion should be made for it at once.
In disc?ssing the widespread need
for the strictest attention to
the home water supply, this bulle
"A pure water supply is one of
the most important factors in farm
life to-day, as typhoid fever, dysen
tery and other disorders may be
carried by impure waters. Farm
water supplies are very subject to
pollution. Of seventy-nine typical
water supplies in Minnesota, inves
tigations showed that twenty were
good and fifty-nin? polluted. Twen
ty-five of those polluted were bad
only because of poor sur
face protection, and could easily
have been made safe. Practically
all the surface supplies were pollu
ted. During these investigations
twenty-three of the farms examined
showed a record of typhoid fever.
Surface water supplies should not
be used for household purposes, or
for washing milk cans. They should
not even be used for laundry pur
poias unless no other supply is
available. Rain water from the
roof is often polluted by dust,
leaves, and the droppings from
birds. Any person who drinks wa
ter from surface supplies endangers
his health if such supplies are not
adequately protected and then pu

Look to Your Plumbing.
You know what happens in a
house in which the plumbing is in
poor condition-everybody in the
house is liable to contract typhoid
or some other fever. The digestive
organs perform the same functions,
in the human body as the plumbing
does for the home, and they should
be kept in first-class condition all the
time. If you have any trouble with
your digestion take Chamberlain's"
tablets and you are certain to get
quick relief. For sale by all dealers.
