treasury of the Y. W. C. A.
The proposition has been accepted,
and a meeting was held on Fridav

Committees have been appointed
to cauvass the town, and before this
issue is published, everybody in
Edgefield and probably Johuston

and captured by a chautauqua tag.
On Thursday, every store and of

W. C. T. JJ., and notice was given
that tickets would be on sale Friday

delightful environment, listening to

the attention of the teachers again
to the importance of bringing their
schools in a body to Edenfield Fri

program is again published in full

eous character is such as to
provide pleasure for everybody who
attends. The trustees should give
the teachers their full co-operation
in their efforts to bring Ihe entire
school to Edgefield. Let not a child
be left at home. The day's diver
sion and pleasure will be an oasis
for the children, breaking the monot
ony ot routine work.

Mother Goose Coming to Edge
One of the strange things about
the noted author of Mother Goose
rhymes, is that no one has ever been
able to find ont his or her name.
The reason is, that she is immortal
and unwilling to allow herself to be
revealed to mankind.
She will appear in Edgefield in
the Opera House incognito on Fri
day evening of this week, and with
her will ceme all her children. Per
haps If you go, you will get ac
quainted with the real Mother
Goose. A great many wonderful
things happen here in Edgefield,
and maybe this will be one of the
thinsrs. Go to the Edgefield Opera
Mouse on Friday evening and see
Mother Goose and her children.
