Life in the County Yet.
Mr. John Nicholson spent a part
of last week here with relatives,
and we found him to be the most
optimistic man we have seen since
the war began. He is not "blue"
and he does not think anybody else
has real cause to be "down in the
mouth." Mr. Nicholson told The
Advertiser's representative that re
cently a tract of GU acres of land
near Ridge Spring sold for $10,000
cash, cash mind you. Let's all flee
to Ridge Spring. They deserve to

Death of Mrs. Pearce Ouzts.
The sudden death of Mrs. Pearce
Ouzts at her home in Edgefield was
extremely sad, leaving besides her
husband eight children. She was a
member of the Baptist church and
the funaral was conducted from the
First Baptist church Monday after
noon by Rev. P. B. Lanham.
Before her marriage, Mrs. Ouzts
was Miss Ella ?Stevens and was rear
ed in the Meeting Street section.
This good woman lived for those
whom she loved, her chief delight
being found in promoting the hap
piness of the members of her fami
ly circle. May the Grest Physician
be tenderly near those who are be
Living on Eight Acres.
Mr. P. B. Whatley spent last
Thursday in Edgefield on business.
For the past year he has been resid
ing in the suburbs of Augusta on
the Savannah road. Mr. Whatley
says he has made a living this year
on eight acres of land. While he
still owns his home tract of 400
acres in the Faifa section, he only
owns eight acres adjoining his Geor
gia home. He has made an eiiort
to purchase more but the owners of
property adjoining him will not sell.
Mr. Whatley is a good, level-head
ed business man./and would succeed
anywhere, whether it be on the red
hills of Edgefield or in the sand
beds, of Georgia. His Edgefield
friends are always glad to see him.

A Real Sacrifice Sale.
Mr. W. H. Turner has decided
to reduce the tremendous stock of
the Corner Store. In order to ac
complish this end he has reduced
prices very low. as will be seen in
his full page advertisement this
week. Such a bargain-giving sale,
coming at a time when people need
the merchandise and have limited
means with which to buy, is a great
stroke of fortune. Nothing will be
reserved. The cream of the large
stock can be had at about invoice
cost, the pi ice being less than cost
in many instances. Surely the peo
ple will not have to be urged to
patronize the Corner Store during
the next few weeks. The quality of
the goods and the very low prices
will be sufficient inducement. Begin
your tOhristmas shopping now at
the Corner Store.
Death of Miss Rose Strom.
At the home of her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. T. C. Strom, in the Anti
och section, Miss Rose Strom passed
away Wednesday last. For several
years her health has been steadily
failing, her condition becoming such
that for the past six months she lhas
been confined to her bed. During
her illness she suffered intensely but
bore it through the long days,
weeks and months with patience
and fortitude that becometh one
who is a consecrated Christian.
Miss Strom was the light and joy
of the home, her aged parents lean
ing heavily upon her. She was be
loved by many devoted friends in
] all parts of the county. In the Re
hoboth section where abe spsnt the
early years of her life and in Edge
field where she made her home for
some time Miss Strom was greatly
beloved, and the announcement of
her death, while not unexpected,
caused much genuine sorrow.
Besides her father and mother,
Miss Strom leaves one sister, Mrs.
R. N. Edrnuuds, and six brothers,
R. P., O. S., E. L., M. E., H. T.
and George S. Strom. She was an
active member of Antioch church,
from which the funeral was con
ducted by her pastor, Rev. J. T.
Littlejohn, Thursday morning.
State Mission Pageant and Sun
On Sunday evening in the Bap

was extremely inclement, thare was
a very good attendance to witness

mie N. Tillman, leader of the Edge
field Sunbeam society, with the
members of that society imperson
ating th"! various enterprises under
the Baptist denomination in South

the attention of the indifferent mul

The processional of all the Sun
beams was very effective, and the

Dry Cure for Pork.
For each 100 pounds of meat
weigh out five pounds of salt, two
pounds of granulated sugar and two
ounces of saltpeter, and mix them
thoroughly. Rub the meat once
every three days with a third of the
mixture. While the meat is curing
it is best to have it packed in a
barred or tight box. For the sake
of convenience it is advisable to
have two barrels, and to transfer,
the meat from one to the other each
time it is rubbed. After the last
rubbing the meat should lie in
the barrel for a week or 10 days,,
when it will be cured and ready to
smoke. To cure nicely it is desira
ble to have a cool and rather moist
place in which to keep it. This re
cipe should not be used where the
meat must be kept in a warm and
dry place, as the preservatives will
not penetrate easily and uniformly.
