Shower in Honor of Miss Nich
One of the most delightful occa
sions, this autumn season, was a
shower given in honor of Miss Lil
lian Nicholson. This took place at
the new and pretty home of Alias
Sallie Dnnovant. The guests on en
tering the ball were greeted by ma
trons and maidens with the bride
to-be ready to shed upon . them
some of her delightful vivacity aud
good will. The souvenirs were paint
ed with the favorite goldenrod, the
flower of October.
At first there was only a small
group but noiselessly aod quickly
the roora was filled with a crowd
of those care free creatures, girls,
in whom everybody finds an at
traction. To complete the amuse
ment of the afternoon we needed
music which was rendered by a
skillful musician, Miss Emily Tomp
To add to the enjoyment of all
present and lend delicious excite
ment and ? sense of rivalry, the
contest wa6 begun which is almost
always indispensable. We found
this one quite a novelty, spelling
namee of doctors, musicians, law
yers, mathematicians and histori
ans from a certain number of tho
letters of the alphabet.
Next carne the part of the after
noon's pleasure to which we all
looked forward. Certainly quite the
most unique and ingenious work
manship was here displayed, before
us stood a well with sides of golden
rods and dainty decorations, with
the chain and wheel quite as sub
stantial and well made as we find
in our yards. Our guest of honor
was required alone to pull np the
bucket fi om t he well, and instead
of being one "moss covered'' aud
"dripping with coolness," it was
filled with the daintiest and fanci
est of parcels. As she opened and
admired each one, we all looked
with wonder and admiration at
each gift from a friend and thought
that as each one might be used they
would serve as a reminder ol' her
Pleasures were literally heaped
upon us, for there appea/ed before
each one a delightful salad course
quite like, some magic wand .had
wavid it into existence. Laugh
ter for a time lulied, but not for
long, for the entrancing strains of a
violin were heard giving us another
feeling of supreme happiness. Pleas
ures that are so glorious can not

Not An Isolated Case.
Many Similar Cases in Edge
field and Vicinity.
This Edgefield woman's story
given here is not an isolated case
by any means; week after week,
year after year, our neighbors are
telling similar good news.
Mrs. L K Dunn, Edgefield, says:
"Kidney complaint fastened itself
uoon me and soon undermined ray
health. My kidneys and bladder
both caused me much suffering and
finally I became afflicted with dizzy
spells, which grew constant. Dean's
kidney pills haying done a world of
good in our family, I decided to
try them. I was not disappointed
with the results, for they helped me
in every way, removing the kidney
and bladder weakness and restoring
me to good health. I have had no
trouble whatever with my kidneys
for two years and give all the credit
of this cure to Doan's kidney pills.
You may continue to use my for
mer endorsement of them."
Price 50c at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doau's kidney pills-the same
that Mrs. Dunn had. Foster-Mil

Cure For "Hard Times."
In a paragraph The Edgefield
Advertiser comprehends the one
and only cure for our present eco
nomic ills when it says: If you
would adopt the live-at-home plan
of conducting your farm, do* not
neglect the fall and winter garden.
With corn in the ciib, several hogs
in the pen and abundant supply of
'greens' in the garden, the 'wolf
can be kept from the door in spite
of the war."-Columbia Record.
Ten days ago we put on what we termed a Mutual Benefit Sale to run for ten days.
Hundreds of people flocked to our store, and were surpris id to find that we had cut
the prices so low on seasonable merchandise-just such goods as they were in need of
at this time.
Many have come and supplied themselves with Shoes and Dry Goods for the whole
family. This they could not have done if we had not made such low prices.
Others wished to buy while they could secure such bargains, but could not make
arrangements to do so until later, and asked us for their sakes to continue the sale.
We know we are making a Great Sacrifice, but in order to give all a chance to get
their Fall Dry Goods and Shoes at the VERY LOW Possible Prices
. We Have Decided to Continue the Sale
for Ten Days More
Don't miss this opportunity. We honestly believe we are making the lowest prices
ever known in Edgefield. Then, too, this is the very beginning of the season, and we
are offering you fresh new goods.
Remember we don't
ask you to buy unless
you are convinced you
can save money by do
