Practically all of the Edgefield
merchants have just completed tak
^ ing stock, but their ledger will hard
ly show a profit for J 914.
The Advertiser wishes to inform
' the Edgefield girls that Pete, the
43-retk, is selling kisses for 5 cents a

He always receives a cordial greet
ing from his Edgefield friends.
Mr.. Orlando Sheppard went to
Charleston Tuesday to attend the
fanerai of Col. C. S. Gadsden, the
chairman of the board of visitors I
of the Citadel.
If we are to judge by the "chuck,"
"chuck," "chuck" of his gasoline
engine, Mr. Henry Powell has
?ground enough corn during the past
30 days to feed a million people.
For breakfast: Kellogg's corn
?akes, crown pearl grits, Swift's
premiara bacon, hot biscuits of Co
lumbian flour, country butter, Luzi
snne coffee at

Will Remain at Home.
Mr. R. E. Morgan has come to
reside permanently with his family.
For the past year or more he has
jo with the Virginia Bridge and
Iron Company. This large corpora
tion prized his serviceH very highly
and insisted that he remain with
them but he decided to return to
his home and engage in farming
this year, so as to be with his fami
ly. His friends here and in all parts
of the county will be delighted to
learn that he will not return to Vir
* Director of Penitentiary.
Yielding to the solicitations of
friends, Hon. Thomas H. Rainsford
bas decided to become an applicant
for one of the vacancies on the
board of directors of the penitentia
ry. . This section of the State has
not been represented on the board
in a long time and for that reason,
aside from his fitness, the friends
of Mr. Rainsford should have no
difficulty in securing the place for
.him. He is well qualified for a po
sition on the board, always manag
ing his private interests with signal
nueces?. Having been a member of
he house for several terms and a
member of the senate for four
years, Mr. Rain'sford has many
friends over the State who will give
bim loyal support when the vacan
cy is to be fille,d iu joint Be*sion.
Two Young Ladies Visiting.
Thone long, lonesome looks on the
faces of some young men around
here are not caused altogether by
the destruction of human life over
in Europe nor by the low price of
eotton, nor even by |the general fi
nancial depression existing every
where, The troth of the whole mat
ter, as we found out this morning,
is that Miss Sarah Nicholson ha?
gone away for a stay of a couple of
weeks with ber brother, Hon. W.
H. Nicholson and his bride in
Greenwood, and Miss Elizabeth
Rainsford bas gone. Not exactly
gone for good, but only for a few
day* to visit her relative Mrs. Bus
sey in Augusta. We hope they will
not tarry long for we are already
tired of the aforesaid lonesome
Letter From a Little Girl.
Dear Mr. Miras:- Willyou allow
me just, a little space in your paper
to thank my friends and neighbors
for being so kind as to take chances
for the missionary quilt. Mrs. S. B.
Mays was the winner of the quilt.
You may think it strange that I, a
little girl eleven, should be thanking
ray friends instead of the society.
The society made out the list of
members and asked me to get up the
chances. I must say that my friends
were very liberal, some taking as
roany as five chances at ten cents a
There may be many souls led to
Christ with those dimes. We were
glad to know that so many were in
terested in the great missionary
work. The quilt brought $4.00. .

Put Your Money in the Bank.
Every farmer who ha? any money
on hand, even if only 125, will do
well to start the New Year by open
ing a bank account. We fear that
it is true that the greata body of
Southern farmers thin season have
made times harder tban they need
to have been simply by failing, even
when they did sell cotton or tobac
co, to put what surplus money they
had into circulation. Put your
money in the bank and check on it
as needed; or if you will not need it
for six months or a year, put it in
the savings department and let it
be drawing interest. There are nu
merous advantages of putting your
money in a bank:
1. It is businesslike and more
safe. By paying bills with cheeks
\ou escape the trouble and expense
of money orders, you impress the
men you deal with as being more
businesslike, and * you have the re
turnedchecks as receipts that can' t be
2. You will be less likely to spend
the money than if it were in your
breaches pocket. You will begin
to want to see your bank balance
increase rather than decrease, and
the first thing you know you will
become a man of thrift. You will
have the "saving habit" and begin
to get interest money from others
instead of paying interest money to
3. The banks help those who help
them. If you deposit even a small
sum in a bank and show yourself
thrifty, sober, industrious, you will
presently find yourself able to bor
row money to hold your crops or to
izet money at six or eight per cent
for buying supplies instead of pay
ing live to ten times as much inter
est in the form of "time prices."
Put your money in the bank, and
start out io be a "business farmer."
Diversified Crops in the Cotton
Certainly anything that can be
done to help the South iu its imme
diate emergency should be done.
But the final remedy for such a sit
uation as the cotton planters are
facing now must come from finding
new uses for cottou, and the result
ing increase in demand, and from a
greater diversification of crops in
the cotton states. The cotton planter
now vtry generally buys hay and
corn for cash. He must get in the
habit of raising such necessities for
himself. It has been ascertained
by the department of agriculture
that whereas the average Ohio farm
has 125 fowls, the average South
Carolina farm has only 14. The
best friends of the South and of its j
planters believe that the true way
to guard against the ups and downs
of "King Cotton" is to raise at
home the crops now bought from
the West and increase the produc
tion of small farm animals.-Re

Outside of a few very special ser
vices, the last prayer meeting, Sun

at the Method ist Church were record
breakers for attendance. To all we

Seeing the Old Year Out
[BY JOHN LAKE.]
Father, now the dying day
Calls for me no more!
Sad at heart I turn away
Human help is o'er!
Once I might have made it brighter,
Made its heavy burdens lighter,
Made its record cleaner, whiter
Than the days before.
Father! oh, the dying year!
Dying in this storm!
Gone my chance to give him cheer,
Make him glad and warm!
Oh, I've made the old year older;
Oh, I've made the cold year colder;
Oh, I've kept my selfish shoulder .
From the year's reform!
Day and year in one white shroud,
Lying at my feet!
How the recollections crowd
Round that winding sheet!
Round that bier the ghosts of hours
"Frittered idly, ghoBts of powers,
Ghosts of blessings sent in showers.
Rise my soul to greet!
If I see the glad sunlight
Of another day,
If I see the new year bright,
O my God, I pray,
May I never lose another \
Chance to help a fallen brother,
Chance to cheer a weeping mother,
Chance to smoothe the way!

Prompt Action Will Stop Your
When you first catch a Cold (of
ten indicated by a sneeze or cough),
break it up at once. The idea that
"lt does not matter" often leads to
serious complications. The remedy
which immediately and easily pene
trates the lining of the throat is the
kind demanded. Dr. King's New
Discovery soothes the irritation,
loosens the phlegnm. You feel
better at once. "It seemed to reach
the very spot of my Cough" is one
of many honest testimonials. 50o.
