Bargains at Corner Store.
In his large advertisement this
week Mr. W. H. Turner tells of
some cut prices that have been
made at the Corner Store on silk
dresses, wash skirts and millinery.
He has had an unusually large mil
linery business this spring, having
been forced to place several dupli
cate orders as the season has ad
vanced. Read the attractive prices
that are now being made at the
Corner Store. This is no fake re
duction but a statement of fact.
Has Made Good.
It gives us peculiar pleasure to
speak a word of commendation of
the administration of Mr W. W.
Fuller, the county superintendent
of education, who is seeking re-elec
tion. We seriously doubt if the
county ever had this important po
sitron so ably filled before as Mr.
Fuller is filling \t. Not satisfied
with the present progress and suc
cess of our schools, he is constantly
striving for better things and does
not let up until he brings things to
pass. Our p?ople are fortunate in
having so capable a man at the
head of our educational system.
A very interesting occasion was

D. A. R. Meeting.
Tuesday afternoon the regular
D. A. R. meeting was held at the
home of the regent, Mrs. N. G.
The annual election of officers re
sulted as follows: Mrs. N. G. Evans,
regent, Mrs. .?. H. Cantelou, vice

There was much regret over the
loss of those officers whose time

Children's Day at McKendree.
There is one annual event or oc
casion in Edgefield county that does
not have to be advertised in order
to attract a crowd, and that is Chil
dren's Day at McKendree on the
third Sunday in May. These annual
occasions have always been so pleas
ant in the past for all who attended
that for it merely to become known,
without any blast of trumpets, that
the exercises will be held, means
that the attendance will be large.
It was our pleasure to be at Mc
Kendree Sunday and witness the ex
ercises by the children. A more
beautiful scene one seldom witness
es. The chancel and altar were taste
fully and appropriately decorated,
supplying a pleasing foreground and
background as the little children re
cited and sang singly and in groups.
All of them were not only well
trained but each one seemed to enter
into the spirit of the occasion, evi
dencing much earnestness and zeal.
Mr. W. E. Turner, the faithful su
perintendent of the Sunday school,
was master of ceremonies. While he
had a large share of the responsibili
ty to bear, yet he had an earnest
and faithful corps of helpers. The
guiding and helping hand of Mrs.
J. M. Shaffer can always be seen in
whatever is undertaken at McKen
dree. Another thing, the children
of McKendree are unusually bright
and gifted. We have visited com
munities in which the presentation
of such an elaborate and varied pro
gram as was given at McKendree
Sunday would be practically impos
sible. So Mr. Turner and the other
grown up people are not entitled to
all of the credit. The Advertiser de
sires to give the sweet little girls
and bright manly boys their full
6hare of credit for the splendid ex
In spite of the large number in
attendance, everybody was given
dinner. The writer was the guest of
Mr. and Mrs. Shaffer and under the,
spreading branches of that large
hickory we feasted upon the best of
everything which was so beautifully
prepared and served that the most
exacting and fastidious individual
could not have found aught that
In the afternoon Rev. M. M.
Brabham who served the Edgefield
Methodist church very acceptably
for three years in the past preached,
selecting as his theme the word
"Mother," while there was but one
word in his tex,t yet his message
I was inspiring and effective, reach
ing the hearts of many persons
present. Mr. Brabham has many
pleasant recollections of his minis
try in Edgefield and asked particu
larly of friends with whom he was
closely associated while among us.
He promised to come down and
visit his Edgefield friends.

Tribute to Mrs. Ella V. Tim
Is there anything truer than the
old Bilde saying that, "death com
eth like a thief in the night?" Du
ring the very early hours of Friday
morning last Mrs. Ella Virginia
Timmerman passed from life into
the great beyond. Mrs. Timmer
man was the wife of Mr. Ransom
B. Timmerman, and the youngest
child of the late Jas. C. Timmer
man and consort Marj' Ann Dorn.
She was in her 59th year and lived
a greater number of years than any
of her nine brothers and sisters who
preceded her to the grave. She is
survived hy her husband, Mr. Ran
som B. Timmerman and the follow
ing children: George M. Timmer
man, James, Anna L. H. Hazel,
and Charlie W. S. Timmerman, and
several grand children.
Mrs. Tiramernian, born of Meth
odist parents, was a life long loyal
Methodist and consistent member
of old Melvendre church.
On Saturday morning at ll
o'ckok her remains were laid to rest
at Bethlehem church, the Rev. 0.
A. Jeffcoat, pastor of the church,
officiating. The love and esteem in
which Mrs. Timmermau was held
was forcibly evidenced by the very
large number of sorrowing relatives
and friends who were present to wit
ness the last sad rites of burial.
Before ?the grave was left the
shapely mound was covered with
many ard varied beautiful flowers
tastefully arranged by loving bunds.
The poet has said:
"We all must die;
All leave ourselves, it matters not
Nor how,-so we die well."
The sorrowing family may find
consolation in this, that she died
well, because she lived well, and in
constant communication with her
