Some time last year, The Adver
tiser mau, when asked about pur
chasing an automobile, stated that
an order would be placed when the

Considering the number of ama
teurs among the automobile drivers
in Edgefield, the town has been
very fortunate in not having a col
lision or serious accident in some
otber form. Let all rapid drivers re
duce their speed on the main thor
oughfares before a fatal accident oc
curs. Should you be the cause of the
death of a little child or some other
person, you will regret that you
ever saw an automobile.
Good Crop on County Farm.
Some of the finest corn we have
seen is on the farm surrounding the
County Home, which is in charge
of Steward J. R. Scurry. He has 35
acres in corn and only four acres in
cotton. Mr. Scurry not only supplies
the Home with everything that is
needed but also supplies some things
for the cbaingang. He has about 15
shoats that will make tremendous
hogs by Ifall. The large garden is
well supplied with all kinds of
vegetables. He is now having a
large acreage planted in sweet pota
toes. Mr. Scurry has proven over
and over again that he is the right
man for the position of steward of
the County Home. He is not only a
practical farmer, managing every
thing pertaining to the Home in a
business-like manner, but he is kind
and sympathetic in his attention to
tlie inmates of the County Home.

ing the institute. There will be sev
eral specialists to deliver addresses,
among them will be a lady who will
say many things that will interest
the ladies and will ausist them in
solving their problems. The school
improvement association will serve
a barbecue dinner on August 5 in
order to raise funds with which to
make some contemplated improve
ments on the school building. The
Advertiser will make a fuller notice

Dr. Pendleton Jones read the

Reception for Teachers, Stu
dents and Baracas.
The Young Woman's Auxiliary
of the Baptist denomination in
South Carolina are being organized
in all of the Baptist schools of the
state, in order to impress them
with the missionary idea as they are
taking their college courses. Many
of the mothers are identified with
this young women's missionary
movement, and for that reason it
was deemed a worthy idea for the
Woman's Missionary Society to en
tertain all of the teachers and stu
dents of Edgefield, and with them
the Baraca class to whom th?y al
ready owed a debt of gratitude for
their entertainment at the dining
room shower last wnter.
Invitations were issued last week,
and at the spacious and hospitable
home of Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Jones,
on Tuesday evening this reception
was held, all of the mission society
and Y. W. A. members being hos
tesses. Beautiful decoration? of
lovely flowers met the eye of each
as they entered, delightful nectar
having been served on the veranda
as the guests arrived.
The wide ball and adjoining
rooms were filled with guests who
enjoyed the pleasant conversation
with friends'until the time for the
evening's program arrived. Mr. J.
L. Mims announced the numbers,
the first being a piano duet by Mis
ses Ruth Lyon and Helen Dorn.
Dr. E. P. Jones gave a very hu
morous but gracious greeting to the
guests of this occasion. After this
Miss Nelle Jones gave a piano solo.
Miss Nan Gunter was called upon
for two vocal solos, so greatly do
the people of Edgefield value her
Miss Margaret May also rendered
a beautiful piano solo, "Rondo Ca
priccioso," and Miss Ouida Pattison
recited a humorous and entertaining
selection from Josiah Allen's wife,
entitled "irying the Rose Act."
At the conclusion of this very
pleasant program, refreshments of
ice cream and cake were served by
the Young Woman's Auxiliary the
guests lingering until an unusually
late hour in such pleasant and con
