If it's a hog, give it an extra ear of
corn each day. If it's a mule or
horse, give it a little better groom
ing as well as extra feed. If it's a
fowl of some kind, give it a little
better treatment for the next month
and iis plumage will wonderfully
improve. We confidently believe
that the average Edgefield farmer is
above the average farmer in the
State in intelligence and in adopt
ing modern, progressive ideas.
Now let's come together November
1, 2 and 3, and have the BEST
COUNTY FAIR in the State.
Little John Sheppard Mims.
The little son, John Sheppard, of
Mr. and Mrs. B. L. Mims, which
lacked but a few weeks of being
two years old, died Thursday af
ternoon of pneumonia, and the sym
pathy of the entire community has
gone out to them in the hour of
their unspeakable grief. Just as
Jesus gathered the little children
about him as he sat in a Judean
home, so He has taken this dear lit
tle one to his bosom. For what
cause or reason, the finite eye can
not discern, but the AU-wise hand
has taken this darling little one,
plucked as a rosebud as the petals
begin to unfold, before it suffered
many ills to which humanity is heir
and before it was tarnished by the
things of earth. God gave little
John Sheppard to his fond parents
nearly two short years for some
purpose and while earthly ties have
been severed, yet some time in the
years to come there shall be a re
union in that heavenly home. An
appropriate service was held in the
home Friday morning by Dr. Jones
and the little Jform was tenderly
placed beneath the sod in the village

Card From Mr. Cheatham.
To the People of Edgefield County:
I take this means of thanking my
friends for the generous vote given
me in the second race for County
Commissioner. I feel grateful for
this vote and will try to conduct
myself in the future as I have al
ways tried to do in the past. I did
not, as you know, get enough votes
to elect me, but I appreciate every
vote I did get. I went into this
race free from promises and came
out without making promises to
anyone and conducted my race, in
every respect, upon a high plane
and if I should ever offer myself
again for any office within the gift
of the people it will be my purpose
and aim to conduct my campaign
along the same lines.
A Beautiful Reception.
Thursday afternoon Mrs. Susan
Hill and Mrs. Wallace C. Tomp

ed by Mrs. D. B. Hollingsworth,
Mrs.' N. G. Evans, Mrs. H. A.
Smith and Mrs. C. A. Griffin and
wore'directed into the parlor where
they were presented to the guests of
honor. Mrs. Hill, Mrs. Tompkins

a miniature belt as a souvenir of
Card of Thanks.
I wish I could express in words
the gratitude that I feel to the peo
ple of Edgefield county for their
splendid support in the election last
week. When it is borne in mind
that this is the first time that I have
ever offered for public office, the
large vote which I received should
make anyone profoundly grateful
to the people for this manifestation
of confidence, and in return I prom
ise the very best service of which I
am capable..! shall endeavor to make
my administration such as no one
who voted for me will havecause to
regret. Again I wish to say that I
am profoundly grateful.
R. N. Broadwater.

to another State, and the thought of
Mary H-going away just made
me miserable. So I went to my
daddy (that is what children called
their fathers in those days) and told
him all about bow I felt and how
I loved Mary H-, and to my
surprise my daddy asked me what
I loved her for." Now catch the
lesBon young men and boys. 'T
said well I just love her, and my
daddy again said, 'Well, Sam, what
is there abont her to cause you to
love her,' and then he asked me
these questions: 'Can she cook?'
I don't know, daddy. 'Can she
milk the cows?' Don't know, dad
dy. 'Can she wash and iron the
clothes, Sam?' Don't know, daddy.
Well, Sam, what do you know
about her?' My reply was, I know
she is a mighty pretty woman. 'I
admit, Sam, tLat she is pretty, but,
Sam, it takes more than beauty in a
woman to make a man a good wife.
Now, Sam, I want to ask you about
a young woman that you do know
something about-it is Polly Sulli
van, just over on the other hill
from us. Is she not a good looking
young woman?' Yes, daddy. 'Can
she cook?' Yes, daddy. Can she
milk the cows?' Yes, daddy. 'Can
she wash and iron the clothes?' Yes,
daddy. 'Well, Sam, there is a
young woman that will make a man
a good wife, but if you think Mary
Hi-is the one that suits you, I
believe I will go over this evening
and see Polly Sullivan myself (for
he was then a widower). I think if
I can get ber she will make me a
good wife, but I will give you the

thinking, and it wasn't many min
utes before he went out to the lot,
and was not long in getting over
to where Polly Sullivan lived, and
daddy was too late.
After telling the above he then
said beauty is all right, but it takes
something beside beauty to make a
good wife. So uncle Sam married
