ny celebrating the opening of the
handsome new office building. The
only building of its kind in the
state. It stands complete without a

cific coast, dividing their time be
tween a visit to their daughter, Mrs.
H. VV. Hughes, in Portland, Ore
gon, and the Panama Exposition.

tended side-trip into Alaska. He
estimates that during his absence
he and Mrs. Tillman travelled a
distance of about 15,000 miles, and
instead of having his strength deplet
ed Senator Tillman seems to have

Celebrated! Eighth Birthday.
Saturday afternoon Allen George
Thurmond, the little eight-years-old
son of Hon. and Mrs. J. Wm. Thur
mond, celebrated his birthday, in
viting about, 50 of his little friends
to share the pleasure of the afternoon
willi him. Every moment of the
stay of the little visitors at this de
lightful home was made very pleas
ant, so much that they were reluct
ant to leave and already wish that
it will be a very short year before
the charming little host has anotner
birthday party. Many tokens of es
teem were presented to the host by
his friends. Refreshments were
served in abundance.
Finest Sweet Potatoes.
Although the season has not weft
opened and but few reports, are ijn,
yet we do not expect to see anybody
surpass Mr. E. P. Arthur in raakihg
sweet potatoes. He brought The
Advertiser a peck of as fine sweet
potatoes a few days ago as we ever
saw. They are an improved variety,
resulting from 'personal attention
given them by Mr. Arthur himself.
Last year he planted his Nancy Hall
potatoes and. pumpkin yams so as
to obtain a new variety, and
it has been this latter variety that
has enabled him to succeed so well
this year. Mr. Arthur plowed up a
row 70 yard? in length and gathered
6 bushels. We are grateful for the
generous portion he brought The
Ad vertiser.
Trenton Warehouse Bonded.
Last Thursday Mr. J. G. L.
White, deputy state warehouse com
missioner, made a hurried visit to
Edgefield and also visited Trenton.
While at the latter place he arrang
ed with the owners of the cotton
warehouse to include it in the chain
of warehouses that are being oper
ated under the management of
State Warehouse Commissioner
John L. McLaurin, Senator Till
man signing the necessary papers
for the warehouse company. There
are several advantages in becoming
one of the chain of state warehouses.
A lower insurance rate is secured
and the warehouse keeper is bonded
which makes it easier to secure a
loan from a bank on the warehouse
receipts.
Very Heavy LOM.
In a letter to the editor of Thc
Advertiser, Mr. W. T. Walton
stated that his loss from the burn
ing of his barn and 22 bales of cot
ton laut week will be about $1,300,
less six bales of cotton that was
saved. After picking the cotton
that was burned he saved a sufficient
quantity to pack six bales. In addi
tion to the cotton, he also lost some
farm tools. Mr. Walton stated that
at one time last year he could have
sold the cotton at 10 cents, but as
he did not need the money decided
to hold it longer, feeling too that it
was well protected from the weath
er. The danger of cotton being
struck by lightning is something
that we never take in to account.
There was so little danger from fire
that Mr. Walton thought it unnec
essary to hare the cotton insured.
His friends in all parts ot the coun
ty sympathize with him ia his heavy
loss.
Meeting of Card Club.
The regalar meeting of the Thurs
day Afternoon Card Club waa held
?at the home of Mrs. J. D. Holstein.
?Four tables were arranged for the
spirited game. The decorations
consisted of a profusion of beautiful
roses. At the close the score was
recorded by Miss Virginia Addison,
the Mecretary of the club, no an
nouncement being made until the
close of tho series of games. The
I consolation prize was awarded to
Miss Annie bee. The hostess served
ice cream and cake.
Another Death in the Home.
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Hammond of
the Colliers section have the deep
est sympathy of their friends in all
parts of the county. One month
ago they buried their son, Marcellus,
who died of typhoid fever, aud
Monday their eighteen-year-old son,
Clarence, died of the same malady,
the funeral taking place at Red Hill
Tuesday afternoon. The funeral
was conducted by Rev. J. T. Little
john. This promising boy who vvas
just ?ntering upon young manhood
was very popular in the Colliers
?community. Just why these de
voted parents had their second son
taken is a dispensation of Provi
dence which the finite mind cannot
understand, but it will be revealed
at that day. We exteud sincere
sympathy.
