First Lyceum Number.
On account of war conditions, the

Friday night, November 2, the
Sweetwater school, which is taught
this session by Miss Mattie Lyon,
will give a Halloween party to raise
funds with which to improve the
school building. The occasion will
be one of unusual pleasure to all
who attend. Those good people, as
well as the popular young teacher,
know how to provide the very best
form of entertainment. There
should be auto parties in attendance
from all adjacent communities.
Contribute to the success of the
party by your presence. Refresh
ments of all kinds wiil be served.
Material and Labor High.
There is a demand for more hou>i s
in Edgefield. Owing to the high
"cost of building material it does not
pay as au investment to build houses
to rent. We would like to see more
home owners in Edsetield -and
suggest that those who need bouses
and are unable to secure them, build
a home through the local building
and loan association. The high cost
of all kinds of material, together
with the scarcity and high price of
labor, has somewhat retarded build
ing everywhere. The need is im
perative for more houses in Augusta,
osptcially since the great fire, but
the high cost of material has kept
many persons from building.
Entertainment Friday Night.
The ladies who compose the
mission society of Stevens Creek
church will give an entertainment
Friday night of this week at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. M. A.Watson.
In addition to serving refreshments,
tuel'e will be several other attractive
features. A handsome quilt will be
auctioned to the highest bidder.
This will be a fine opportunity for
some old bacheler to obtain addition
al coverin' for the winter. Tell
your friends about the opportunity
to spend several hoursvery pleasant
ly at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Watson, meeting and mingling with
their friends from other com
Court of Common Pleas.
The court of common pleas has
been engaged since Monday with
the suit brought by Mrs. Lucy V.
Glover against the Georgia-Caroli
na Power Company for damage
in the sum of $0,400 alleged to
have resulted from the water im
pounded by the dam which the de
fendant company constructed across
the Savannah River. Damages are
claimed upon two grounds-first,
the land of the plaiutiff has been in
jured by the water sobbing the
land and second because the
impaired sanitary eoncitions
have rendered the place, it being
now practically impossible to em
ploy labor on the farm. The testi
mony has been completed and to
day the sheriff will take the jury in
automobiles to inspect the premises.
Both sides to the suit are represent
ed by able counsel and every inch
of ground is being fought, the plain
tiff being represented by Hon. J.
Wm. Thurmond and Hon. B. E.
Nicholson and the defendant by
Sheppard Bros., Elliott and Herbert
of Columbia and lion. Boykin
Wright of Augusta.
Edgefield's Part in the Recent
W. C. T. U. Convention at
The love which the local Wo
man's Christiau Temperance Union
has to the cause was manifested by
the interest taken in the recent state
convention which met at Aiken
from the 19th to the 21st inclusive.
Those who attended wers, Mrs.
W. B. Cogburn, Mrs^ A. E. Pad
gett, Mrs. J. W. Stewart, Mrs. B.
Timmons, Mrs. J. L. Hart, Mrs. J.
L. Mims, Mr. and Mrs. N. M. Jones,
Mr. W. B. Cogburn also went over
for the Sunday morn.ng service.
Betides those mentioned in the
Johnston letter from that union,
there was a large delegation from
Treuton, including, Mrs. T. P. Sal
ter, Mrs. Anna Edison, Mrs. J. D.
Mathis and little Susan, Mrs. M.
M.Padgett, Mrs. Ruby Shealy, Miss
Emma Bouknight, Mrs. Clarke;
from Philippi, Miss Ollie Jackson,
Mrs. Mary Cullum; Harmony, Mr.
and Mrs. Walter Smith and John
Owens Smith, Mrs. C. A. Long,
Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Yonce and
Little Susan Mathis and Daisy
Smith were also participants in the
song contest, and]little Lucy and
Hammie Scurry, their father Mr.
J. R. Scurry bringing them over to
Aiken. We couldn't help think
ing that ' after all our own Edge
tield county girls and boys sang
more sweetly than any of the oth
ers, and the judges who did not
not know one from the other, did
give the medal to one of ours, John
Owens Smith of Harmony and men
tioned Elliott Lewis honorably.
Looking around over the audi
ence it was a great joy to see so
many Edgetield people participa
ting in so great a cause.
Those who remained during the
whole convention enjoyed a feast
of good things and liad the satis
faction of seeing the largest dele
gation which has ever attended
Mrs. Ella A. Boole of Brooklyn
was the honor guest of the occasion,
along with some of the state offi
cers, being entertained in the home
of Dr. and Mrs. P. J. McLean, Dr.
McLean being a splendid host for
the convention and showing his ap
preciation of the value of the or
ganization and of the white ribbon
hosts around the world.
Among the delegates elected to
the national convention in Wash
ington Dec. 1, Mrs. W. B. Cogburn
was the first to be nominated, be
ing one of the pioneer promoters
of the cause in Edgelield county,
as South Carolina is only entitled
to three delegates, this is quite an
Among the resolutions passed by
the convention was one protestiug
against the opening of moving pic
tures on Sunday in Columbia. A
telegram bearing this protest was
sent to the Ministerial union in our
capital city to be presented to the

CAN'T DENY IT.
If This Had Happened Elsewhere
Instead of Edgefield You
Might Doubt lt.
The average man is a doubter.
This is not surprising-the public
have been humbugged so frequent
ly they are skeptical. Proof like
the following will stand investiga
tion. It cannot be disputed.
W. B. Paul, painter and paper
hanger, Butler, S*., Edgetield, says:
"I was bothered by kidney trouble
nearly all my life. It grew worse
after an attack of measles. Doau's
Kidney Pills removed the pains and
strengthened and regulated my kid
neys. My health became better
than it had been in many years."
Over Three Years Later Mr. Paul
said: **I have very little trouble
with my kidneys now. When I am
bothered slightly that way, howev
er, Doan's Kidney Pills never fail
to relieve me."
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills-the same
that Mr. Paul has twice publicly
recommended. Foster-Milburn Co.,
