Fertilizer wagons are mobilizing
but not- so actively as in former
seasons. Thp impression prevails
that the farmers of this county will
not use as much commercial ferti
lizers as they did in 1915. This is
said to b? due to the advanced price
awd also to the inability to purchase
a well balanced fertilizer.
A committee of citizens have as
sumed the financial responsibility
of arranging for a spring chautau
qua to be held March 3, 4 and 6.
The entertainments will be held in
the opera house on the afternoon

special public service will also be
held on Sunday, March 5. A fuller
notice in detail will be made of the
chautauqua next week.

here he stated that last week he
counted 26 farmers'teams that were
giving free service to the county.
Mr. S. T. Adams of Clark's
Hill made a business trip to Edge

embarked some time ago in the

He has about 6U0 White Leghorn
hens of the purest strain and gath
ers eggs, not by the d?zen, but by
the uushel every day. His eggs com
mand a good price in Augusta.
Off For New York.
Mr. J. W. Peak has recovered
sufficiently <o co to market, having:
left Monday for New York to pur
chase his soring stock of merchan
dise. He is a buyer of large exp?
rience and will select the newest
and best thiner for the patrons of
his store. Within a short time the
new spring arrivals will be on dis
play, and an announcement will be
made in The Advertiser.
New School Building.
Tho trustees and patrons of the
Harmony school are formulating
plans for the erection of a morlern
school building on the site where
the present building now stands.
The building will be well equipped
in every particular. It is probable
that the new structure will cost
$4,000. The Harmonv people never
do anything by halves. If they erect
a new building,,it will be in keep
ing with the progressive spirit of
this ideal rural community.
This issue of The Advertiser re
flects the progressive spirit of the
growing town of Parksville. An ad
vertisement will be found advertis
ing ''Prosperity Day," February
29, for Parksville. Good speeches,
a grand parade and a free barbecue
dinner. This is a new idea for this
section, we mean setting apart a
day as ''Prosperity Day." The peo
ple of the West-side are to be com
mended tor getting out of the old
mt and taking up altogether new
and progressive ideas.
Best For The Last.
The managers of the lyceum
course have kept the best attraction
for the last. The Hungarian orches
tra, composed of six very talented
musicians, will give an entertain
ment in the opera house Thursday
night, March 9. This aggregation
of musicians have played before
some of the largest audiences in the
country and never have any trouble
in making return engagements. A
rare treat is in store for all music
lovers in Edgefield. The date is
Thursday night, March 9.
Parksville's Progressive Bank.
Without solicitation on our part,
the Bank of Parksville inserts an
attractive advertisement in our col
umns this week. This reflects a com
mendable spirit of enterprise and
progress. This is one of the young
est banks in the county and it bas,
through the cartful, conservative
management of its ofiieers, steadily
grown. We feel s>ure that the pub
licity which it will get through
The Advertiser's columns duriog
the next few mouths will result in
more rapid growth in the future
than in the past.
South Carolina Product.
Unlike the funeral and tomb
stone of which Henry Grady once
spoke, the monument erected to the
memory of McKie Meriwether is a
South Carolina product. The crude
granite was quarried near Winos
boro and shipped to Greenwood
where it was shaped into a beautiful
finished product by the Owen
Brothers Granite and Maible
Works. The monument reiects
credit upon this Greenwood enter
prise which is being awarded simi
lar contraots from all parts of this
and other states.
"John Barleycorn" in Opera
" House Friday Evening.
An entertainment will be given in
the opera house Friday evening,
February 25, for the benefit of the
school. Jack London's famous story,
"John Barleycorn," will be shown
in six reels. The placing of this
story upon the canvas in moving
picture theatres has been such a
powerful force in creating prohibi
tion sentiment that a large brewer
offered the producer of the film
$50,000 to suppress it. The story
of "John Barleycorn" is a strong
indictment of the liquor business,
and is endorsed by all temperance
workers. There is not a dull scene.
Some love scenes and romance give
added interest and variety.
The entertainment is for the pur
pose of raising funds for the Edge
field school. The sum of $50.00 is
due for some valuable books that
have recently been added to the li
brar", and it is hoped that the en
tire amount can be realized Friday
evening. Everyone who attends
will receive full value for the small
admiseion fee of 25 cents.
When yon need a buggy try a
Babcock, Hock Hill, Hackney or
Washington buggy. These vehicles
have stood the test of Edgefield
roads for years. Ask the peo ole

Letter From Edgefield Schools.
We were delighted th have Miss
Van Buren visit the school on Mon
day morning. She visited the differ
ent rooms and made interesting a*
well as valuable talks to the students.
Great stress was laid on the fact
that children ought to be trained
from the very beginning to be good
and useful citizens. "Citizenship"
was her topic ot discussion. r She
brought out the fiuiiki that**' the
f.chool children ought to work in
behalf of the town,.especialll) the
students of the high school. J'Ohe
splendid suggestion which she made
was that the students working in
the laboratory should analyze the
milk, meat and water supply of the
town. In doing ibis they ifould be
come more interested in the welfare
of their town, and would do more
toward its uplift. Ever.voue enjoy
ed this talk to the utmost and I
feel sure great profit was obtained
Don't forget "John Barleycorn"
Friday night at ihe opera house.
This is the best movie play that has
ever been presented to Edgefield.
It is the life of Jack London and
is tilled wilh thrilling adventures.
Every man, woman and child in
Edgefieldjshouldjsee this. Admission
for all twenty-five cents.

R. N.Caughman, Prominent
Citizen, Helping Friends
in Unique Way. He
Gives Details in Inter
The spirit of helping others is
abroad in the land, and this part of
the world surely in UPI be growing
better and healthier. A Lexington
man de* i res to help some un f orin-,
nate brother or sister. He has al
ready shown a number of people in
Lexington how to better the state
of their health by taking Tanlac,
as investigation proved. Still, he
wants to continue this good work.
That is the reason hy gave the in
terview published below.
This man, who may be described
as a humanitarian, is R. M. Caugh
man, of Lexington, S. C., one of
the well known citizens of that
town, who is related to many promi
nent citizens of his and Richland
"I bad stomach trouble and indi
gestion for a considerable number
of mouths, and could hardly eat
anything without suffering keenly
soon afterwards," said Mr. Caugh
mari, as the interview began. "I
had intestinal troubles, also. My
appetite failed, and my system be
gan to show the strain it was un
der. I took a lot of medicine, but
it gave me no permanaut relief, he
"I heard so much about Tanlac
that I decided to give it a trial.
The first few doses made a differ
ence in my condition. I improved
rapidly, and about the time my first
bottle was taken, I was troubled no
longer with indigestion and its kin
dred ills. I can eat anything I care
to now. I have a great appetite.
Pork chops, cabbage, and other
heavy foods do not cause me pain.
It was about two months ago tiiat I
stopped taking Tanlac, and I now
have no symptoms, of my former
'I can heartily recommend Tan
lac. I have told dozens about it,
and those I have heard from say
they have been helped. Tanlac is
the best medicine I have.ever taken.
It is worth bragging on."
Tanlac, the master medicine, is
sold exclusively by Penn & Hol
stein, Edgefield; Johnston Drug
Co., Johnston; G. W. Wise, Tren
