Changes in Bpard.
Mr. A. A. Edmunds has retired
as supervisor and Mr. R. X. Broad
water has been duly installed. Mr. j
Edmunds has given the people four
years of faithful service. His ad
ministration has been economic and
businesslike. The record he has
made is an honor to him. We be
lieve that Mr. Broadwater will also;
make the people a good official and
that they will have no cause to re
gret placing him in this very im
portant position. The new county
commissioners will not enter upon
their duties yet, as the term of Mr.
Broadwater will not expire until
February 1st and that of Mr. De
Vore March 1st.
Wednesday afternoon the home
of Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Lyon on

a highly esteemed citizen of that
section. While Mrs. Clark's Edge
field friends give her up reluctantly,
they are delighted that she will yet

Year of Good Business.
For the past two years, the years
immediately following the declara
tion of war, Edgefield merchants
took stock in order to determine the
amounLof their loss, but this week
Edgefield merchants are taking
?tock in order to ascertain the
amount-of net profits for ,the year.
This has been a fall of big business
for all Edgefield merchants.
Tuesday at noon Miss Elizabeth
Morgan and Lewis F. Holmes
were married at the home of the
bride's motlier, Mrs. Julia Brooks
Morgan, the ancestral Brooks home,
five miles north of Edgefield. The
ceremony was performed by thc
Kev. Henry Bell White, the pastor
of the bride. The parior wts deco
rated for the occasion, smilax, holly,
ferns ami pal ins being used. The
wedding was a very quiet one, only
a few friends and relatives being
present, immediately after the cer
emony a salad course was served, fol
lowed by a sweet course. Early in the
afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Holmes left
for his home in the Philippi section
of the county. Fora year or two !
Miss Morgan has been making her
home in Edgefield and her friends
here regret to give her up.
Two Blue Ribbon Boys.
Of course there are more than
two young men in Edgefield, who
are faithful to duty, but The Ad
vertiser feels that lhere are two in
the postoftice who deserve special
mention at this time. We refer to'
Mark Miller and Watson O nz ts.
During the period just preceding
Christmas .when there was constant
demand on their strength, to say
nothing of their patience, they meas
ured up to everything that could be
expected of them by an exacting
public. r?he outgoing and incom
ing mails were all heavy but these
young gentlemen handled every de
tail with seeming ease, being court
eous and obliging all the while. It
is due them that they should be
commended for the manner in which
they have served the patrons of the
office during this period of stress
and strain. . This does not mean,
however, that Mark and "Wat"
are not faithful and efficient all the
time, for they are. So The Adver
vertiser herewith pins a blue ribbon
on the lapel of each of these faith
ful young men.
Accepts a Better Position.
The friends of Mr. J. D. Smith,
who has been one of the superintend
dents of the Addison Mills, will re
irret that he has moved to Greer to
make his home, having accepted a
more lucrative position with the
Apalachian Mill than held here.
His removal takes one of the most
active and most loyal members of
the J. O. U. A. M. from our midst.
The Advertiser wishes him every
possible success in his new Held.
A Week in New York.
Mr. James 0. Sheppard had the
good fortune to spend a si-lid week

but to "see the sights.'' A week
before Christmas he accompanied
the children of Mrs. \V. W. Shep
pard to .New York, whither they
went to spend the Christmas season
with their mother. Our young
friend saw thc metropolis from the
Battery to the Bronx and from the
subway to the topmost point on the
