thing of the crosses and trials and
disappointments of earth should
comfort them. The little form was

ing third will come for examination
Tuesday. The requirements of the

not probable that Edgefield's quota
of 203 men can be gotten from the
406. If not, others will be called
for examination next week. In
Lexington county already nearly 400
additional men have been called for
examination. In New York only
one out of five examined are held

Ambitious and Deserving.
Being unwilling to be deprived of
a college education and desiring,too,
to contribute to the expense of a
college course by her own efforts,
Miss Lydia Brunson, the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Brimson, ac
cepted an offer from the publishers
of a leading magazine, The Review
of Reviews, to supply the means
for a college course provided she
did a certain amount of canvassing
for subscriptions for the magazine.
Possessing wonderful energy and
perseverance, spurred on too by an
ambition to secure a college educa
tion, Miss Lydia accepted the offer
and has been soliciting much of the
time since school closed. And we
are pleased to state that her efforts
have been very successful. Where
ever she has been, Trenton, Johns
ton, Ridge Spring, Batesburg, and
other places, besides' a thorough
canvass of Edgefield, she has been
very cordially received and en
couraged in her work. Miss Lydia
has been so sweet, so tactful and so
lady-like in her work that it would
require a heart of adamant to offer
her discouragement. She is determ
ined to secure the needed number of
subscriptions in order to enter
Winthrop college The Adver
tiser joins her host of friends iu the
hope that all whom she approaches
will receive her cordially and give
her substantial encouragement.
The magazine is a good one and is
worth all and more than she asks
for it. When Miss Lydia goes to
Aiken and Greenwood soon we trust
that she will be as well received
and as successful as she deserves.
Card of Thanks.
We take this means of thanking
our neighbors and friends of the
Colliers community for their kind

death of our little baby. We hope
some day to be able to return their
many thoughtful acts.

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
Kemmgton Piano, for which some dealers get $400.00, 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.
This illustration shows style IS. There are three other styles offcr.
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 ofi your hands
making a liberal allowance on the price of a New
Remington. Installment terms can be secured
if desired. For full particulars, write
