convention will be held Monday,
June 25, at ll o'clock at the office
of Mr. A. S. Tompkins to arrange

in forty-years, will spend the month
of July here with their niece, Mrs.
J. L. Mima. Mr. and Mrs. Adams
are residing LOW in Lavonia, Ga.,
where they have been making their
home for the past year.
Edgefield was well represented at
the first term of court of McCor
mick county Monday. Among thoae
attending from Edgefield were Pre
siding Judge J. W. DeVore, Ste
nographer O. B. Anderson, J. Wm.
Thurmond. O. Sheppard, B. E.
Nicholson, W. W. Fuller and W.
Mrs. James S. Byrd and her two
little children are spending this
week in Columbia with her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. John Fitzmaurice.
The home circle in Columbia haa
been conaiderably broken by the
war, as Mrs. Byrd has three broth
ers who have volunteered and are in
different branches o?r the service.
The friends of Mr. J. P. Ouzts
are very happy over bis continued
improvement. He has now gained
sufficient strength to drive out to
his farm. He experiences some dif
ficulty in walking, except short dis
tances, which is probably due in
part to his failure to take much ex
ercise during the past j ear or more.
Mr. Stanley Crews, who left The
Advertiser a few weeks ago to en
list in the Laurens company, failed
to pa68 the physical examination and
returned to-day to Edgefield to his
place on The Advertiser foroe. We
welcome him back to Edgefield, and
a welcome equally as cordial is ex
tended bim by some of the fairer
sex, so we understand.
The man who wears the broadest
smile now is- the one who is still
holding his cotton-cotton which
four or five months ago was worth
only about 17 cents. 1 he price now
is fluctuating around 25 cents. A
"quarter" a pound for cotton is
enough to make any old grouch
smile. If not, he is a fit subject for
the electric chair.
Mr. M. D. Lyon, who enlisted in
the navy several weeks ago, is now
on the battleship Pennsylvania. In
a card received from him he says:
x like the navy fine. I am getting
just lots of nice things to eat. I
had watermelon to-da.v." After this
announcement about the melon, all
of the colored people who registered
will desire to join the navy.
The Advertiser's been are multi
plying very satisfactorily. Early
in the year we purchased two colo
nies or hives of bees with which to
Bght the boll weevil. These two
mother colonies recently "swarmed,"
providing us with two strong young
.-olonies. So we now have four bee
2fum on our premises, which rapidly
recruits our army with which to
5ght the weevil. Practically every
nome-owner could have several col
onies of bees. They not only feed
:hernselves but help feed the family.
Another marriage has occurred
it Hardy's. Sunday morning after
:he sermon Mr. George Wright and
Mrs. Mary E. McCarty were
narried by Rev. P. B. Lanham.
The Advertiser joins a large circle
jf friends in extending sincere con
gratulation to Mr. and Mrs. Wright.
Fords irr Good Hands.
Mr. George F. Mims and Mr. C.
\. Griffin tie for first place in the
natter of giving a car scrupulous
;are, but Mr. J. K. Allen is easily
?ntitled to first honor in the matter
>f converting a well-worn car into
i new one* Mr. Allen used a Ford
ive years and sold it the other day

Help the Red Cross.
Only a few mtn and women will
se called upon to go to the front,
)ut all will be needed to serve in
lome capacity. One way in which
ill can serye is to contribute to the
Red Cross fund which will provide
:or ministering to our boys who are
lick and wounded in France. The
leed will be great. Do your part
ivhen the committee calls on you.
Very Satisfactory Registration.
In the matter of full and com
plete registration, we believe that
Edgefield county's record will com
pare favorably with any other coun
,y in the State. Three or four ne
groes have been reported to the
:ounty chairman as having failed to
.egister, and an investigation is now
5eing made of their cases. All
"slackers" or persons, if there be
my, should b3 reported to the coun
ty chairman at once.
Working Meeting Street.
Supervisor R. N. Broadwater has
put his road-working force on the
Meeting Street roads, and will not
remove it until that road has been
put in first-class condition to the
Saluda line. We stated that Mr.
Broadwater has placed his force on
that road, when we should have said
his foreman has the work tempora
rily altogether in hand. Nobody
?xpects the supervisor to give even
a thought to rocks and gullies and
such common place things for some
time to come.
For the next three weeks I will
pay forty cents per 100 lbs. for
all kinds of Scrap Iron except old
boilers. Rush it in as my price
will decline after three weeks.
Coal shipments now enroute and I
will be glad to name summer prices
to be delivered in July and August.

Mr. W. H. Turner, the popular
manager of the Corner Store, an
nounces in his half-page advertise
ment this week that he will give a
special sale Friday and Saturday of
this week and will donate 10 per
cent, of the cash receipts to the Red
Cross. By patronizing this popu
lar store Friday and Saturday a
contribution can be made through
the Corner Store to the Red Cross
fund, a very worthy cause. Mr.
Turner deserves the highest com
mendation for his generous offer.
Comfort Bag Meeting.
A very pleasant gathering of a
lat ge number of the W. C. T. U.
members was held with Mrs. J. L.
\lims on Thursday afternoon when
32 comfort bags containing all the
necessary articles and a motherly
letter to some South Carolina boy.
Pillow cases for the Red Cross
were also brought in, and some of
the ladies took lessons in knitting,
making the sponges for hospital use
and to put in the comfort bags.
Those who have not yet completed
their bags are requested to send
them in by Thursday afternoon.
They will be put on exhibition Fri
day and Saturday morning in Smith
Marsh Co's, window for the benefit
of those who wish to see and make
them. Directions will also be dis
tributed. As the ladies passed out
on their way home, through the
generosity of Mrs. Agatha Wood
son, delightful punch was served.
A Red Cross Rally in Court

pointed in connection with the
American Red Cross Relief Fund

My Club Plan
In order to get
the Remington Pi
ano well introduc
ed in South Caro
lina, I will sell to
100 customers the
Jxemmgton Piano, for which some dealers get $100.00, at the astonish
ingly low figure of only $270.00 per instrument. Until 100 are sold, I
can offer you this low club price. They will go rapidly at this extreme
ly reduced price.
THE RE?fE?OTSM PUM9S
This illustration shows style 18. There are three other styles offsr
ed at the same price. The pianos are finished in either mahogany or
oak. All Remington Pianos are made by the Starr Piano Co Rich
mond, Ind., in the largest and most complete piano plant in the
world. The pre-eminent quality in all Star-made pianos is the tone,
which is rich, smoothe, full, pure and brilliant. The touch is light and
elastic, responds easily to every shade of emotion of the performer.
Join this Remington Piano Club before one
hundred are sold. I may not be able to offer
such an attractive price later. If you have an
old instrument, we will take it off your hands
making a liberal allowance on the price of a New
Remington. Installment terms can be secured
if desired. For full particulars, write
