Just as Beaufort had finished settling

Less Crime in Chicago.
For the first time in 44 years more
than 7,000 saloons in the city of Chica
go were closed last Sunday. Hereto
fore, they have totally disregarded the
Sunday closing ordinance. Asa result
of the closed saloons, the criminal
record for that day was considerably
less than usual. There were only 16
arrests for drunkenness in the city
Sunday and 47 on Saturday, against an
average of 243 arrests for the two
days for several months past. And
yet some people say the consumption
of whiskey has little or nothing to do
with the increase of crime.
Protect Dumb Brutes.
Edgefleld probably has too ?any or
ganizations now, but there is just one
more that wouldKfill a niche that is at
present unfilled. An active organiza
tion for the prevention of cruelty to
animals would prove a blessing to
scores of animals in this and other sec
tions of the county. The society in
Augusta for the prevention of cruelty
to dumb brutes is doing splendid work,
and could the cruelly treated beasts of
burden give expression to their grati
tude for the protection thus afforded,
theyjwould doubtless let those who are
engaged in this humane work know
how grateful they are. There
are not a large number of owners of
dumb brutes that mistreat them, but
the few who do should be dealt with
as the law provides. Whether we have
an organization or not, let's be on the
alert for those who mistreat the faith
ful horse, mule or ox, letting them
know that they are violating the law
and will be called to account.
Suggestion to Our Law Makers.
In Edgefield and several other coun
ties of the State, the criminal docket
is generally cleared in two or three
days, seldom indeed is the entire week
consumed. But under the law no civil
business can be tried by the jury sum
moned for the criminal court. The
law should be so changed that the
court can go at once into the civil cal
endar as soon as the criminal docket
is cleared. Were such a change made,
a considerable saving could be effect
ed, both to the tax payers and to the
presiding judge. Frequently in Edge
field the judge disposes of all criminal
cases by Tuesday or Wednesday night
and has to return home at considerable
expense only to come back the following
Monday to hold civil court, and the
tax payers have the expense of bring
ing a jury here for two days* work,
when the same jury could continue
throughout the week, disposing of
many civil cases. Were such a change
made, the lawyers could anticipate the
work of the court and have their civil
cases ready a3 well for the latter part
of the week set now apart for criminal
cases as for the following Monday.
Then, too, such a change would tend
to relieve the congestion of the civil
calendar which at the time it exists.
U. D. C. Meeting.
The regular monthly meeting of
the Edgefield chapter, TJ. D. C.
met Tuesday afternoon with Mrs.
A. E. Padgett. In the absence of
Mrs. Holstein, the president, Mrs.
R. A. Marsh was in charge of the
business part, and Mrs. Pendleton
Jones conducted the historical pro
gram. Committees were appointed
for the ensuing year on hospitality
and publicity, and Mrs. C. E. May
was appointed pianist by the his
torian and a choir of the best voices
was also selected, giving selections
on this occasion.
Questions weie asked and answer
ed concerning the early days of the
Confederacy and a paper was read
by Mrs. Pendleton Jones on some
of the famous Edgefield men of the
GO's, special mention being made of
generals Mart Gary and N. G.
The chapter decided to use the
year book and the arrangement of
these was placed in the hands of the
president and historian.
At the close of the meeting a
very dainty salad course was served
by the hostess, assisted by Mrs. R.
C. Padgett and Miss Virginia Ad

Just as soon as the land will do to

better for your land to plow under your
