Yon are not doing all that you
ought, in the matter of prepared
ness, unless you have planted largely
of tomatoes for canning- Mr
George F. Mims can supply you
with strong, vigorous, home-grown
plants fresh from the bed. His
plants will live, if properly put out.
But, if through careless planting,
they do not live, then go back to
him and he will sell you 6ome more.
Mr. Lott Has Resigned.
Besides the personal friends of
Mr. Lott over the county, those
who are interested in scientific agri
culture will learn wi'h regret of the
resign J lion of L P. N. Lott, our
county demonstration agent. For
the past five or six years he has
served in this capacity and has teen
instrumental in getting a large
number of farmers out of thefcold
ruts. Mr. Lott's labors have not
been confined to this county alone,
having been assigned special duties
in attending and addressing farm
ers institutes in different parts of
the State. It has not been announc
ed who Mr. Lott's successor will be,
but it is hoped that those higher up
will not let our county remain long
without a demonstration agent.
A Near-$erious Accident.
Saturday afternoon about six
o'clock while Mr. Joe Hammond,
Miss Blanche Jumper and Mr. Will
?U/ctS Whatley w?re returning from
a fish-fry in an automobile the car
skidded while rounding a curve nnd
turned over in the Martin Town
road just below the home of Mr.
D. T. Mathis.
The two young men were thrown a
considerable distance and Miss
Jumper was caught under the car.
As soon as the young men could
take stock and get themselves to
gether they raised the car and extri
cated the young lady who was un
conscious for two hours. She was
carried to the home of her sister,
Mrs. W. T. Prescott, and after a
thorough examination the physician
stated that she had received several
severe bruises but no serious injury.
It was Mr. Whatley's car and he
was at the wheel but no blame at
taches to him.
In some unaccountable way the
machine became unmanageable.
A marriage in which much iaterest is
being manifested by friends in all parts
of the county is announced by the fol
lowing invitation, and The Advertiser
in advance sincerely congratulates
these two widely beloved young friends:

Baptist Revival Services.
During the past ten days very
successful revival services have been
conducted in the Baptist church,
afternoon and evening. The preach
ing has been done by Rev. D. P.
Montgomery, who has been engaged
in evangelistic work for about 25
years; He is a native of South Car-j
olina, and was educated at Furman ,
University, but has spent most of
his time since entering the ministry
in the West. Recently he moved
his family to Greenville, where he
has purchased a home and will re
side permanently. The return of
Mr. Montgomery to his native State
is a kindly dispensation of Provi:
dence at this time. Through him
Edgefield has been greatly blessed.
In addition lo the professed conver
sion of a large number, the spiritual
life of all who have sat at his feet
from day to day has been greatly
quickened. Never has the gospel
been more plainly or more effective
ly presented in Edgefield than by
him. He has won his hearers by
his intense earnestness and his en
tire consecration to God's service,
and it is profoundly regretted by
those who heard him from day to
day that to-night will be the closing
service. After spending a day or
two with his family in Greenville
he, together with his musical direc
tor, Mr. E. L. Faircloth, also of
Greenville, wdl begin a revival
meeting at Ridge Spring Sunday.

We wish to thank our friends
