At the last meeting of the D. A.
R. it was decided to celebrate Flag
Day by a lawn party at the home
of Mrs. J. L. Mim8. This party has
been d af erred on account of the
continued sickness of little Eleanor

Probably the largest yield of
wheat ever made in the county was
recently harvested by Mr. T. A.
Broadwater. He sowed four bush
els last fall on about five acres and
harvested 177 bushels. If such a
yield can be made with such an un
precedented drought prevailing,
surely with everything more favora
able Mr. Broadwater can surpass
his own good record.
Made Many Friends in House.
Hon. J. P. DeLaughter announc
es this week that he is a candidate
for re-election to the House of Rep
resentatives. Ile has served only one
term and during that timd has made
many friends among the members
of the house. Mr. DeLaughter is
not one who is constantly seeking a
place in the limelight, preferring
rather, in his modesty, to be in the
background. Nevertheless he does
much solid work, both in enacting
good laws and in defeating bad
ones. He has made a record of
which he is not ashamed.

Death of Miss Eva Crouch.
Trenton, June 8.-The people of
Trenton and surrounding country
were greatly shocked and grieved
yesterday afternoon when it was
learned that Miss Eva Crouch of
Trenton had died at the home of
her aunt, Mrs. J. M. Rushton, in
Johnston, at 3:30 o'clock, Sunday
Miss Crouch was visiting her
aunt and was taken very suddenly
sick Friday afternoon. She was
about 18 years of age, a graduate of
the Johnston institute and a very
bright, attractive and lovable young
girl. She will be greatly missen in
the Trenton Baptist church and
Sunday school, where she was an
active worker. She is survived by
her father, Charley Crouch, four
brothers, Guy, Harold, Curtis and
Roy Crouch, and one sifter, Miss
Connie Crouch. The funeral will
take place at Ebeneser cemetery
Tuesday afternoon at 5 o'clock.
The Baptist Church.
The pastor has missed two Sun
days from his pulpit in the last 30
days, being out of town the greater
part of the month. The duties which
ltook him away are over with now.
Services will be held regularly on
Sunday mornings. Sunday Behool
and morning service, in the High
School auditorium; Sunday and
Wednesday nights at the Presbyte
rian church. Members and friends
may come with the assurance that
there will be services at the appoint
ed times. You need your chwrcb

The Edenfield Cook Book will
be completed next \i eek, and a copy
can be procured for 50 centsjfrom
the committee of ladies of the Bap
tist church who compiled the
recipes and had them printed for
the benefit of the churoh building
fund. The book will be aotually
worth twice the amount that is ask
ed for it. The many simple recipes
that produce delicious viands will
help to solve the high-cost-ofdiving
problem which so many of us in
Edgefield have to grapple with daily
and hourly. The Advertiser job de
partment will have the book ready
for delivery next week.
Children's Day at Plum Branch.
Children's Day was observed in
the Methodist charch at Plum
Branch last Sunday. The exercises
were carried out by the children in
perfect order and great credit is due
to Rev. B. H. Covington and his
wife and the others who had charge
of the training of the children. A
large crowd was present. A bounti
ful and delightful dinner waa served
on the ground. In the afternoon
there were addresses by B. E. Nich
