Prizes Presented Pupils Edge
field School in W. C. T. U.
Contest
This year the W. C. T. U. in
-addition to the four county prizes
1st and 2nd for best and next best
.essays on alcohol and cigarettes,
-offered a prize in each grade of the
graded and High school of this
town.
Tuesday morning after the devo
tional exercises Maj. Lyon very
courteously gave an opportunity
for presenting these prizes.
In introducing the ladies Maj.
Lyon spoke of the world interest in
total abstinence or prohibition, ol
how the nations of the world are
aroused and alive to the fact that
the use of alco hol does cripple and
destroy efficiency, that they are re
organizing the commercial as well
as moral value ofj total abstinence.
He told of some man who had given
the subject serious thought ascrib
ing much credit to the W. C. T. U.
for making sentiment and setting
in motion this great tidal wave of
temperance that is sweeping the
world.
We do believe that this essay con
? test, which has been conducted by
by the W. C. T. U. for many years,
has been and is an agent in this
. great cause. The world is reaping
? the harvest of this seed-sowing of
years.
Nine grades entered this contest
and the successful pupils are as fol
lows:
Third grade, John Wells.
Fourth grade, Eleanor Minis.
Fifth grade, Thelma Jackson.
Sixth grade, Edith Ouzts.
Seventh grade, James Porter.
Eighth grade, Neta Ouzts.
Ninth grade, Janice Morgan.
Tenth grade, Florence Mims.
Eleventh girade, Willie Mae Hart.
. The W. C. T. U. desired that
the prizes, though simple, would be
- something to impress upon the mind
of pu Dil the cause and at the same
time give pleasure and inspiration.
They could think ot nothing more
fitting and combining all the quali
fications than < photographs neatly
framed of Frances E. Willard and
Lillian M. N. Stevens.
After the presentation of the
prizes announcement was made of
the winners in the county contest.
First subject-"How Will Pro
hibition Improve Conditions in

Prominent Johnston Busi
ness Man.
Mr. J. L. Mime,
Edgefield, S. C.
Dear Mr. Mirna:
I write to say you cer
tainly get out a fine paper.
I have always regarded the Edge
field Advertiser the best paper in
the county. Now I am convinced of
that fact.
Your last issue was a gera edition
for a county newspaper.
Your write-up of the Edgefield
educational rally dav was simply
replete. The Johnston people ougrht
to feel greatly indebted .to you for
the most, excellent write-up, tho.
splendid boost, you gave our town.
I am tempted to say that I am
afraid you were most too copious
in the many nice things you say
about us.
I have always loved your most
excellent father and mother, for the
great assistance they gave me when
starting out in life, hence I have
watched with great interest and
pride the success of your father's
boys.
With best wishes for you and
yours, I am,
Your friend,
Landreth's Garden Seed.

the church and a blessing to our
town. The social feature of the con
vention was enjoyed.
The sixth annual Columbia dis
trict Sunday school conference,
which convened here during the
past week was one of the most in
structive and inspiring conferences
held in this district. There were at
tending, nearly one hundred dele
gates and to these a cordial wel
come was extended and their pres
ence here meant much to the town.
All of the sessions were held in the
Methodist church tho Rev. Jas. W.
Kilgo, D. D. piesiding elder, pre
siding over the conference, Rev. J.
R. Walker being elected secretary.
There were many splendid address
es and plans were laid for christian
education. The standard of efficien
cy was well discussed and the fol
lowing subjects were presented:
Teacher training class, Rev. L. D.
Gillespie; "Missionary instruction,"
Rev. R. E. Turnipseed; "Annual
observance of children's day," Dr.
Kilgo; "Worker's council, Mr. A.
E. Driggers; "All the church en
rolled in Sunday school work," Mr.
A. L. Gunter; "Our text book,'* J.
A. Steele. The importance of the j
oradle roll was brought before the ,
conference, the Rev, D. W. Keller
discussing this, and the home de-,
partment was presented b\ Mr. J. ?
L. Quinby. A matter that was heard ?
with joy was the fact that ten young :
men were looking forward to the j
ministry as a life work, M. A.
Cleckley and Daniel Jeffcoat, of
Swansea, having been granted li
cences to preach after passing an
approved examination. Each day a
basket dinner was spread undsr the
large shade trees surrounding the
church and there was a general in
termingling of friends. Several of
the preachers remained through
Sunday and Dr. J. A. Steele pastor
of the Leesville M. E. church
preached a most impressive sermon
in the Baptist church.
Mr. and Mrs. Wilmot B. Ouzts
have announced the engagement of
their sifter, Miss Nina Ouzts, to
Dr. George Dawson Walker, the
happy event to transpire some time
in June. This ia learned with cor
dial interest for these are two of
Johnston's most beloved young peo
ple. '
Mother's day will be observed
here on Sunday by the Baptist Sun*
day school and it is hoped that
every one will wear the emblem of
the day, a white flower. The idea
of a national mother's .day was
originated by Miss Anna Jarvis of
Philadelphia, and the 2nd Sunday
in May was the chosen day. The
white carnation has been designated
as the flower to be wpm in honor
of mother.
Mrs. F. M. Boyd has gone to
Chester to visit her mother, Mrs.
Stewart, and while there will enjoy
the chautauqua.

Cartledge are contemplating attend
