Buy a .Bale of Cotton.
Washington, D. C.,
Sept. 15, 1914. M
Editor Edgefield Advertiser, Edge
field, S. C:
My Dear Sir: If you have not :
already done so, I suggest that you ;
urge the "buy a bale movement."
Every mah who does not raise cot
ton should buy at least one bale at
ten cents from some farmer who is
forced to sell. This will not only help
that individual but will help all
others. This movement is alroady
having a good effect in the north.
I shall buy at least one bale in
each of the couuties of my district.
I know that you will do your
part in urging that every man who
can do so join the buy abale move
ment."
Very truly you i's,
James F. Byrnes.
Orphan Work Day. i
Our people have become familiar :
with the meaning of the words Or
phan Work Day. They mean sim
ply this, that there are ' in our or- '
phan institutions a great number of 1
fatherless children, dependent upon ;
the loving care of the Christian 1
people in this State. As the only 1
m .'ans of their support is from the 1
voluntary gifts of generous men.- 1
women and youth, it may very well ;
happen and it does happen, that the
supplies for the support of these 1
thousands of orphans, ran short at '
the end of the summer, and i m me- 1
diate relief is needed. And hence 1
the inventive mind of a zealous
Georgia Methodist preacher made '
the suggestion that on the last Sat- 1
urday of September, whioh is the '
26th day of this month, oar people '
proceed diligently to work as usual
and that they divide the proceeds 1
of that day's work or their regular
income for that day, to the support (
of such a one-of our orphan ius ti tu- }
tions an appeals to them..
There are in South Carolina, the '
Thornwell Orphanage at ^Clinton,
the Connie Maxwell Orphanage at 1
Greenwood, the Epworth Orphan- ?
age at Columbia, each with about 1
300 pupils in charge, (and every r
one of them in need of prompt as- 1
distance); then there is the Church 1
Home at Yorkvilie with about 100 1
pupils in all more than a thousand -
children. The churches and Sab
bath Schools of the various denom- c
mations should vie with each other }
io seeing who will do the best for '
their orphans. Gifts from indi- 1=
viduals can be sent at once or later; 1
the gifts from Churches and Sunday
Schools immediately after the 27th x
day of Septerabtr when the collec- 1
tions will be taken up. Send to l
the institution of your choice. 1
We can give you anything you
want in a Studebaker wagon. ,

From Mrs. Lake to The Bap
tist Courier.
Dear Dr. Cody: Mr. Lake nas
written you how we appreciate the
iff gular vi.its of the dear old Cou
rier up here in our loneliness, and
How that I am well and getting ray
Strength back, I want to add my
testimony to our appreciation of
your kindness. Beginning with the
?sue of'September 10, won't you
flease send the paper to us care of
Foreign Mission Board, 1103 East
Slain St., Richmond, Va., until
further noticed And let our corres
pondents know, please, that that will
be our address for the next few
weeks-in fact, no matter where we
ire in this country, letters so ad
iressed will reach us.
Our two months' stay here has
?en a great blessing to us after our
fork for the Board, in South Caro
ma and Tennessee during the in
?nsely - hot weather. Mr. Lake's
red throat has been greatly benef
ited by rest from the strain of
preaching, while this climate has
done much in helping me to rid my
system of the South China malaria.
The doctor's advice is not to be in
?k> big a hurry about going South,
so our return journey will be a
roundabout one. We are to speak
at several points in New England, j
Jfotli to audiences of Chinese from
?ir Sz Yap field, in their native
fpngue, and to the churches who are
interesting themselves in the work
ipr them. These engagements in
Slade Boston and Portland, Me., in
which latter place we are invited to
ladress a convention of workers!
??foong the Chinese in several states.
3?e ecpect to be in Richmond early
Ifc October, and then tc go on to
gear old Carolina.
oOar united love to all The Cou-1
fiSr family and all The Courier'.
Baders.
Sincerely,

Animals Have Odd Fears.
ELEPHANTS, MOXS AND Tl ti EUS I'ls
MKE MICK AM? RATS.
It is well known that many peo
ple have an inexplicable aversion to
certain animals. Most people have
a horror of snakes and other things
that cree]) the earth. Captain Win
fred Gonzales, the Director of the
German Zoological Annex, with
Sim Brothers' World's Progressive
Shows, in speaking of the peculiari
ties of animals, says: 1 An i m af?,
like human beings, have th^ir ?ikes
and dislikes. Put certain animals
together and you will expect a light,
while another two will become thc
friendliest of comrades. Women
are proverbial for their horror of
mice, but one would hardly expect
an elephant to show fear at sucha
tiny foe. This fear was recently
shown at Winter-quarters, Macon,
Georgia, where the Sun Brothers
spent their Winter months' lay off,
during some experiments to find out
the likes of animals in a* menagerie.
The huge animal spotted the mouse
as soon as it was placed in its en
closure. The elephant gave evi
dence of fear immediately.
"With one of his big feet it could
have smashed the tiny intruder out
of existence. Instead, it stood forj
a few minutes motionless, and ap-1
parently helpless with fright. Noi
until tiie mouse had been remove?!
was the elephant to be pacified, and
it was some hours before it regain
ed its normal courage.
"Mice, indeed, .inspire fear, or
something akin to it, in a great
many animals. A Bengal tiger
trembled and uttered long mournful
howls the whole time that a mouse
was in its cage. Two rats were in
troduced into a lion's cage, and the
same fear was shown by the larger
animal for the smaller ones. There
have been many suggestions put
forward for this extraordinary dis
like of these large animals for mice.
One very probable one is that mice
and rats have a peculiar smell which
is highly repulsive to th'Mr ene
mies. A Puma, however, has no i
such fear. When a rat was intro-1
duced into its cage, the huge cat
made a spring and that was a
goner."
The Sun Brothers will exhibit
their big animal annex and their
many clever sights and perform
ances, afternoon and night, on Fri
day Oct. 2, Edgefield, S. C.

TRENTON NEWS.
Death of Henry Miller.' Box
Party at School. Marriage
of Popular Young
People.
The announcement of the death
of Mr. H. C. Miller at the home of
his honered parents Mr and Mrs J
W Miller came as a terrible shock
and caused a feeling of genuine sad
ness throughout hil horne town and
the entire community. Tak?n very
Middenly ill, there seemed no hope
from the first and at noon on Mon
day his manly, generous life was
taken by Him who giveth and
Him who taketh away.
Mr. Miller was a gentlemanly gen
tleman^ with genial, affable' and
courteous manners-he enjoyed a
wide popularity. It is natural then
that his passing has occasioned
deepest sympathy and regret, and
that tears are mingled with those of
the heart broken loved ones who sit
under a dark cloud of sorrow, long
iog for a voice that is stilled.
Mr. Miller was thirty-seven years
of age and eleven years ago he mar
ried a lovely Winncboro girl Miss
Gussie Des. Portes who with beauti
ful little Henry Clay Jr., survives
him. Besides these and his heart
broken parents, he leaves two broth
ers, Messrs A. ?. and F. W. Mil
ler. The funeral service was held
from the Baptist church, Revs. E.
C. Bailey and J. K. Wa'ker per
forming the last sad rites and his
remains were tenderly laid to rest
in Ebenezer cemetery, beneath a
mound of beautiful flowers, tokens
from sincere friends and relatives.
Don't forget the box party at the
school house on Friday night of
this week, the proceeds of which
will go to the school improvement
fund. There is a genuinely good
time in store for those who attend.
Mr.^T.om Carpenter after a .de
lightful visit to relatives here has
returned to his home in Gastonia,
X. C.
Miss Marie Marsh, Miss Helen
Clark, Miss Mattie Harrisou will
leave home on Tuesday to resume
their school duties. M Us 'Marsh
L'oes to Columbia college, while
Miss Clark and Miss Harrison re
llim to Coker.
Friends here of Mrs. Bud De
Loach deeply sympathize with her
in her recent sorrow. ?
On Thursday morning last at An
ierson, the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Addison, relatives whom the bride
kvas visiting, occurred the marriage

he possesses all those adwirau??
raits that go to make a perfect wo
aan. Mr. Eidson is a gentleman of,
xemplary traits of character and is .
?ne of those fortunate few of whom
?very one has pleasant things to say; ,
