School Election Friday.
Every voter in the Edgefield
school district should cast his bal
lot Friday in the election ordered
for the purpose of voting upon the
question of making an additional
levy of three mills for school pur
poses. Not only should every vo
ter cast his ballot but The Adverti
ser will go a Btep further by saying
that every ballot should be cast in
favor of the additional levy One
of this community's most valuable
assets is its splendid school but the
school can not be maintained, even
at its present standard, to say noth
ing of making continued improve
ment, without adequate funds. The
present levy does not provide suffi
cient funds, and for that reason the
trustees are asking the people to
vote the additional levy. The in
crease in taxes, should the three
be voted, will only be one
mill more than the taxes of
the past few years. The legislature
bas for several years made provision
for the levying of two mills to pay
off some indebtedness on the school
building. With that levy of two
mills taken off and the addition of
three mills means only a one-mill
i-?crease. Let's have a FULL
VOTE and every ballot for the
cause of education.
Pleased With Military Life.

Sam's" fighting forces. Capt. Col
lett says it is all work and no play,
the regular routine beginning early
in the morning and lasting practi
cally all day. So arduous are the
duties that some of the young men
are lacking in endurance and have
to leave the camp altogether. It is
needless to add that Collett is mak
