Candidate For Congress.
Hon. G. L. Toole of Aiken spent
Monday in Edgefield mingling with
the crowd in attendance upon court,

friends. He told The Advertiser's
representative that he is a candidate

port of the people upon the record
he has made as a public servant.

Mill Not Coal Dealers.
Mr. T. A, Higbtower, the manager
of the Addison Mill, states that he
has received many urgent appeals
recently for coal, persons asking
him to sell them coal, and some
have rather been offended because of
his refusal to comply with their
wishes or demands. Mr. Ilightower
says his supply is limited, as the
railroad has seized recently more
than 100 tons of the mill's coal, for
its own use, while in transit.
Furthermore, he has not paid a
license as coal dealer and has no
right under the town's ordinances to
sell coal. For these reasons he will
be unable to supply the local con
sumer with coal. Mr. Higbtower
of course supplies the needs of the
people who reside in the mill village
and are in his employment.
