Heavy Importations of Bananas.
For the past rew weeks the ba
nanas sold in Elsefield have been
superior to those that were shipped
here earlier iu the season. This is
probably due to the recent la:-?:c
importations from Jamaica. Darin?:
the past, month nearly 65,000 bunch
es of bananas have been received in
Charleston, which is the largest im
portation for a like period on rec
ord. Edge?eld is already receiving
some of this choice fruit.

Lost Heavily by Fire.
About three o'clock Monday
morning Mr. Wylie Glover, one of
the leading farmers of the Meri
wether section, awoke to find his
barn enveloped in flames. It is be
lieved that the building wa* struck
by lightning. Mr. Glover's loss was
about $2,500, with no insurance.
In addition to the building, three
mules, two valuable horses, corn,
fodder, cotton seed, commercial fer
tilizers and farm implements were
burned. Mr. Glover came to Edge
field Monday to purchase some
stock to take the place of that
which was burned. Ile came up
Mr. Henry Cooper in the latter's
Karly Monday morning a number
of Mr. Glover's neighbors volunta
rily came together and offered to
render substantial aid in rebuilding
his barn. This is an evidence of the
high esteem in which Mr. Glover
is held by the peopieof the commu
nity. The Advertiser commends
most heartily this beautiful spirit
and substantial manifestation of

Will Serve Dinner.
The Greenwood boosters, about
150 or 200 persons traveling in 40
or 50 automobiles, will reach Idge

the same manner that the Upsbaw

Hom's de? ' neighborhood is one
of the few f. *mers who realizes the
full value of stock on the farm, lie
has a stock of hoirs that for profita

within 12 monihs. She never has
less than a d'i/.en. A last-June pig
of this faith fui old sow also had
pigs last February (at nine month*
of age) and Mr. Ouzts sold these
for$16. If he can continue the
record he is makin"- he had better

Negro Shot Saturday Night.
It seems that two negroes, Will
Steadham and Rich Hamp, both
residents of Edgefield, had a dis
pute or quarrel over a small debt
Saturday afternoon. Saturday night
Will went to the home of Hamp
near Macedonia church and resumed
the quarrel af ter entering the house.
After the passing of angry words
HauiD took his pistol from a drawer
j and tired twice upon Will, one ball
taking effect in the arm and the
other in his side. It is Slid that
Will was in the act of drawing a
pistol at the time he was fired up
on. Will was operated on and his
?intestines were found tobe pur. bur
ied in 19 places, necessitating the
removal of two short sections of
the intestines. At this time ho is
still living but thu chances for his
recovery are slim. Hamp suirender

Steadham has a very unsavory repu
tation, while Hamp on the contrary
is a quiet, hard-working negro.

It was very gratifying to the

vho weredireetly interested in the
uccess of the play, to see so many

rery cordial relations that exist be
ween the two towns. Instead of
>eing jealous and envious of the
mccesB of each other, as are some
mill towns, Johnston and Edge
ield rejoice at each others success.
)nr people must remember the
iplendid patronage which the people
if Johnston gave the Deestnck

Mrs. W. W. Sheppard wa?
thrown from her' horse Thursday
and was painfully bruised. While
riding from ber home to town the
stirrup brokp, causing her to lose
control of the horse which was ge
ing at a rapid gait. When opposite
tho Grice Hotel Mrs. Sheppard was
thrown against a wagon as the
horse tamed. She was carried at
once into the Grice Hotel and a
physician summoned. At first it was
thought that she had sustained se
rious injuries as a result of the
violent fall, but upon making an
examination the physician stated
that there was no serious or perma
nent injury Mrs. Sheppard ts an
experienced rider and would not
have fallen had not the stirrup brok
en. The day after the fall she was
removed to her home and will be
able to be out in a few days.

Composition on "The Cow" by
Alexander Popham of the
There is a great many kinds of
cows, I will name a few of them.
The cow boy, the cow frog, the
cow dog, the steer and the milk
cow. The only cow that counts for
much is the milk cow. John Bull
who comes to school must be a cow
boy, because his maw in name Sallie
cow and he is not a 'milk cow. Cow
boys and steers is kin somehow.
Steers is not very good for milk.
Daniel Webster says that the cow
is a illustrated animal containing
milk. Besides we get cream, clabber,
butter, buttermilk, cheese and whey
out of the cow- The cow carrie?
her milk around in a bag, and gives
out a little every night and morn
ing. I don't know how the cow get?
ihe milk in her bag but we have to
work hard to get it out. When wa
get it all out she is dry and it takes
her a long time to till up again. The
cow always gets to be a grass wid
ow, because her husband quits her
and then she has to live on gras*.
