All of the children of the town are
.cordially invite?I to attend. The

?mall cost. Scores of children always
look with eager anticipation to the

Death of Mrs. M. M. Paul.
After a brief illness of pneumo
nia, Mrs. M. M. Paul passed away
Thursday night. Friday afternoon
the burial took place at Berea, Rev.
J. R. Walker conducting the funer
al. Mrs. Paul was a devout Chiis
tian woman, having been a member
of Berea church from h. r girlhood.
Her sudden death has cn ised much
genuine sorrow among her friends
here and in the Gilgal section where
she was reared. She and Mr. Paul
were married nearly a year ago, her
maiden name being Mi?s Mattie
Cartledge.
County Boc.rd Met.
The county board of equa ization
held its second and final meeting for
1915 in the office of the auditor Sat
urday, all of the townships beinir
represented except two. The ver
bal reports from the members of the
board showed that the work of the
several boards has been done care
fully and conscientiously. As far
as possible all property has been re
turned upon the same basis as last
3ear. County Auditor J. R. Tim
merman has given the township and
county boards the fullest co-opera
tion. We do not believe there is a
county in the State that has had all
returns more carefully examined
than Edgefield county.
No Free Notices.
Hereafter all notices appearing in
the Herald in interest of entertain
ments given for benefit of religious,
social or philanthropic causes, where
j.n admission fee is required, will
he charged for at the regular adver
tising rates. Special arrangements
may be made for the publication of
?nen notices by applying at the busi
ness o di ces.-Spa rlan burg Herald.]
Which indicates an approach to
business sanity. But suppose they |
come right into your sanctum and ?
.oooingly argue how mueh they
would prefer to have it in your
editorial columns, or "in a little
local, because people are so much
more apt to read it there," will you
have the nerve to try to protect
your living at the risk of being call
ed contrary and unobliging?- Yojrk

our Edgefield friends for their rrany
manifestations of sympathy and for
the many kindnesses bestowed dur
ing the illness and death of Mrs.
M. M. Paul. We shall always treas:
ure these kind acts in our memory

Mission Conference.
In response to the call of Mr.
Orlando Sheppard, the moderator
ot' the Edgefield association, all of
the pastors in the association and
probably a dozen laymen attended
the mission conference which was
held in the Baptist church Saturday
morning. All of the churches, ex
cept one or two, were represented
either by the pastor or by a delega
tion of laymen. Mr. Orlando Shep
pard presided over the meeting. Rev.
Mr. McManaway attended as the rep
resentative of the mission boards.
After a general discussion of the
mission situation, a resolution was
adopted directing that a personal
canvass of the membership of all
churches be made in order to meet
the apportionment by the close of
the conventional year. The pastors
were requested to arrange for a
missionary rally in each one of
thi'ir churches during the month of
April.
