who love him more than the newly
acquired friends of his adopted

to the south of us.

A Sad Bereavement.
All of Edgefield was saddened by
the passing away on Saturday last
of the precious little baby, the only
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. P.
Nixon. Hattie Nixon was just three
years old in February, just at that
most bewitching age, when they
are BO a part of the mother and fa
ther. So dependent, and yet begin
ning to say and do the little things
that are so winsome.
This dear little girl had been in
Edgefield enough to make every
body who knew her, love her and
when her illness was announced
about ten days before her death,
many awaited anxiously the news of
her improvement-but this hope was
never realized and at a little after
noon onSaturday ber spirit passed out
into that more congenial land where
children are so loved.
Little Hattie has gone to Jesus,
who took little cnildren in his arms
and blessed them in this world, and
said, "We must be like them if we
wished to see the kingdom of heav-.
en.
The little body was laid to rest
in Willow brook cemetery here on
Sunday morning, the funeral ser
vice being conducted at the grave
by Dr. E. P. Jones. Many loving
friends and relatives followed the
little body to its last resting place,
and roany flowers covered the cas
ket. May the comfort . of a higher
power be bestowed on the mother
and father in their bereavement.

This Is
Top Dresser Year
If you have fertilized your crops lightly at planting time, or used fertilizer
lacking in potash, it is not too late to remedy this, provided you Top or
Side dress with a fertilizer containing sufficient proportions of all three
necessary elements of plant food-Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia and Potash.
Do not make the mistake of using a material that contains Nitrogen
(Ammonia) only, such as Nitrate of Soda. To get the increase in fruitage,
as well as stalk and foliage, use ROYSTER'S TOP DRESSERS, which
not only provide ammonia in quickly available form, but also phosphoric
acid and POTASH.
