County Democratic Convention.
The county Democratic conven
tion met Monday with lOuJdelegates
present, all of the 20 duns being
tully represented. The convention
was formally organized by the elec
tion of B. E. Nicholson as presi
dent and J. L. Minis and S. J. Wat
son secretaries. Resolutions were
adopted endorsing S. T. Carter,

structed to vote as a unit in th? I
State convention. A. E. Padgett ;
was elected a member of the State
executive committee. i
The length of the supervisor's
term of office, whether two or lour
years, was generally discussed and i
the sentiment of the convention was 1
strongly in favor of making the I
term four years. Supervisor A. A. ]
Edmunds was present and gave his ]
reasons for contending for four I
years, reading letters from the at- <
tornuy general giving the law bear
ing upon the matter. While no 1
definite action was taken by the i
convention relative to placing this <
office in the primary it is practical- <
ly certain that there will be no elec
tion for county- supervisor until i
lyu;. Mr. Edmunds will hold the i
office for two more years. In this
connection it ts but proper to state t
" that the taw fixes thc term of office
for the conrity commissioners the ]
same as that, for supervisor, their 1
term then being four years ?it this i
The convention was altogether I
harmonious. Immediately alter the :

followed by a very pathetic, but in
festing article read by Mrs. W.

Mrs. J. W. Stewart read the last

lescription of her paning hours.
!)ne of her last, messages was one of
'love to ail White Ribbon friends
n the state, the nation and the
mrorld." After the singing of "Shall
We Meet Beyond tue River1', the
nemorial session closed.
A very pleasing feature of thc
programme was a quartette of ladies

refreshments, were a dainty salad

Tribute to Mrs. Sarah J. Wates.
Dear Advertiser: Permit me to
lay a Mower upon the newly made
grave of our, dear, friend Mrs. Tee
I have many strong friends, I am
thankful to say, but never had .
truer, more constant, more faithful
one than poor Tee Jennings, after
ward Mrs. Wati-s. Poor child al
ways frail, it serins fate had de
creed that her life should be one of
service, one of t rial, and afflict ion.
but its all ovei now, and instead of
mourning we should be rejoicing.
Her life was short, but fragrant,
fragrant in deeds of devotion, in
deeds of love, and sunshine. And
because we shall see her frail form
no more upon the earth. I beg to lay
this poor tribute upon the mound,
so to speak, that holds all that is
mortal of a choice spirit, gone home
to God while we pray Gods bless
ings upon her devoted sister so
crushed by this sad dispensation.

The "Skule" at Red Hill.
Prof. Obediah Threewitts and his

; for the expense of arranging the
?hall, was divided equally between

the merry party that went from
Edgefield greatly enjoyed the trip.
They partook of a delightful picnic
dinner on the roadside about sunset.
