Entertainment at Trenton.
The following programme was
most creditably carried out in the
auditorium of the Trenton High
School one week ago last Wednes

The stage was beautifully and
appropriately decorated with a pro

position on the stage.
The opening chorus was a tem
perance song by the Loyal Temper
ance Legion of Trenton, who
adorned in their crusader caps and
shields and the young campaigners
outfits made a spectacular appear

beautiful accompaniment by little

much to the programme by a niano

very attractive piano selections were
given by Mrs. Scott ard Miss bouk

North Augusta took the part of the
bride. Mr. Stephen Hughes, the
father of the bride and Samuel
Manget performed the ceremony.
We were sorry not to have the

beautiful scene. Many were known

Permanent Road Building.
Those who travel the public road
leading from Edgefield to Antioch
will see some of the best work that
has ever been done upon the high
ways of this county. Supervisor A.
A. Edmunds and his roadworking
force have shown the people what
they can do by way of permanent
improvement. Instead of working
the long, steep hills a new road has
been opened in several places, which
makes it possible for farmers to
haul twice as much on this road than
they have been able to do hereto
fore. Another commendable feature
is the widening of the road almost
the entire way to Antioch. Most of
the roads in the county are too nar
row, and Mr. Edmunds is acting
wisely in making roads of stand
ard width wherever conditions make
Visit to the B. M. I.
The editor of The Advertiser, ac
cepting an invitation of President
Bailey, had the pleasure of visiting
the Bailey Military Institute Tues
day evening last for the first time
since the institution was located at
Greenwood. On Tuesday evening
the graduating exercises were held,
the literary address being delivered
by Ex Gov. John C. Sheppard. Be
sides 12 full graduates, oneof whom
was Watson Talbert of Parksville,
there were a number to receive cer
tificates for having complett-d cer
tain courses in the institution. The
leading feature of the exercises by
the students Tuesday evening was
the senior oratorical contest, which
would have done credit to any of
the oolleges for young men in the
state. The speeches were well pre
pared and were delivered in a most

nished music for the occasion. The
leader deserves credit for the man
uer in which he has taught those
who compose the orchestra, Iii in
number. There are orchestras in
cities that have been in existence
for a number of years that have no
larger repertoire and do not play
any better than does the B. M. I.
orchestra. Prof. Entzrainger will
plan a short tour for the orchestra
n?xt session and expects to include
Edgefield in the list of towns that
will be visited.
In spite of the financial stringen
cy incident to the war, the B. M. I.
has been filled with students and
has had the most successful year in
the history of the institution. There
were 135 boys in the corps of ca
dets at the close of the session. The
plant or equipment of the institu
tion will compare favorably with
any other institution in the state.

All of the Edgefield
this county, Watson Tal
Morgan, Rai ns ford Ca
and Charlie Bell Littlejohn and Ju
lian Williams, have made a good
record. Col. Bailey and several of
the professors voluntarily spoke of
the very satisfactory work thi.t these
fine set of boys have done during
the past session. Then, too, there
ara thc Snuggs boys, Harold and
Roland, both of whom Edgefield
claims. They have been hard stu
dents and of course have a perfect
record for deportment. They will
be in the senior class next session,
consequently have only one mon:
year in the institution. Harold told
the writer that their sister, Faith
Suuggs, will also finish in the high
school of Augusta next year.
Col. Bailey and his corps of as
sistants are sending ont properly
trained young men who will be
valuable additions to the citizen
ship of the communities from which
they came. The wholesome atmos
phere of the B. M. I. is conducive
to the development of the noblest
and best there is in a boy. Parents,
if you aie contemplating sending
your boy away from home to school
next year, send him to the B. M. I.,
and after he shall have completed
the course there send him to some
higher institution. But first send
him to the B. M. I.
