A large number of ladies left
this morning to attend the 10th
annual meeting: of the Woman's
Missionary Union, auxiliary to the
Edgefield Baptist association,
which will be in session to-day and
to-morrow at Bethany church. The

Big Fall Stock.
Mr. l>en Hubenstein has returned
from Kew York where he purchas
ed a large stock for the Rubenslein
stores. Ile found many bargains
that will be given the patrons of
these popular stores. Mr. Ruben
stein has made very large purch?ses
for his ladies' coat suit depart?, ?nt,
having decided to give more atten
tion to this line than heretofore.
Very soon these stylish suits will
begin to arrive and and will be dis
played at the Rubenstein stores.
Watch The Advertiser for the an
nouncement of their arrival.
Back From New York.
Mr. W. H. Turner returned
Monday morning after spending
several weeks in New York pur
chasing fall merchandise for the
Corner Store. In the main Mr. Tur
ner's trip was very satisfactory. He
purchased all of the goods he need
ed at practically before-the-war
prices, but he had some difficult?
in finding certain lines of imported
goods and also domestic colored
goods in which foreign dyes are
.ised. It required some longer than
usual to complete the fall purchas
es for the Corner Store but Mr.
Turner has succeeded in purchasing
a stock with which he is satisfied.
To say this means a great deal, for
Mr. Turner is a discriminating buy
er and is not satisfied with anything
?hort of the newest and best.
Dr. Prescott's Oats.
Dr. W. E. Prescott has planted
the Fulghum oats two gears and is
entirelv satisfied with this celebrar
ed variety. He is offering about 400
bushels of these oats to the farmers
of the county for seed at ?1.50 per
bushel. No better seed can be found
anywhere. He harvested his oats at
the proper stage, had them care
fully threshed and then passed
them through a machine for rempv
ing all weed seed and int* : ect
grains. Dr. Pre cott has already
received several large orders from
Georgia and if those desiring Ful
ghum oats wait too long the supply
may become exhausted. Better com
municate with Dr. Prescott at once.
Minister Gonzales Tells of Pros
perity of Sugar Planters.
William Gonzales, the American
minister to Cuba, arrived yesterday
<>n board the steamship Mexico
from Havat.a for his* annual leave
of two months. After spending a
few days in this city Mr. Gonzales
will go to Washington for a short
"The most interesting thing in
Cuba at the present time," said Mr.
(-Gonzales, ''is the wonderful ad
vance in the price of raw sugar,
which commenced with the an
nouncement of war, and has con
tinued in a steadily upward move.
When I left Havana on Saturday
sugar was selling at between five
and six cents. Unfortunately for
the Cuban growers they sold their
sugar fur unusually- low prices.
A number of planters and bankers,
among them several Americans, had
poolings' of from 5,u0b lo mon?
ihan 200,000 bags, and these men
have profit ted enormously."
He told of one planter who had
been losing heavily, and had debts
of over ?l,<JU0,00u, but fortunately
had not sold his last year's crop.
With the present prices the man
sold his sugar and made enough to
leave him with more than >"l,U0U,
000 after paying al! of his debts.
"It is believed in Cuba that high
prices, perhaps not so high as du
ring the condition of actual war,
but approximating twice the prices
of the past year or two, will be
maintained tor the next crop, and
to a lesser degree for thc two suc
ceeding crops. Such tremendous
profits as this would place Cobain
an exceedingly strong financial con
dition in spite of the losses which
are now suffered in the dnlness of
the tobacco market, which the war
