117 Acres of Good Farming Land
on Aiken road, three miles from Trenton. One of the best
communities in Edgefield county. The soil is a red-pebble
sand, and is in a high state of cultivation. It lies well and is
easy to cultivate. The dwelling has four ro?ms with a hall,
and is very pleasantly located in a small oak grove, with a
good well of water, fruit trees and outbuildings, two tenant
houses in good shape, and about 6 acres of bearing asparagus.
This place is right ready for a man to make money on-there
could be no better investment in the county. It will be sold
cheap, so don't let this opportunity slip by you. Will be glad
to show you over it at any time.

. The High Cost of Fatigue.
No ooo can rightly value labor
saving machinery on the farm un
less familiar with the effects of over
strain and overwork.
You may look at your health anc
"Strength as a bank account; yoi
can't draw on it forever witbou
making deposits. In other words
after a period of work during whicl
more energy is expended than ii
generated, one must have a perioc
of absolute rest in order to regair
the usual amount of energy-anc
the greater the fatigue the longei
the rest needed.
With labor-saving machinery, J
farmer cannot only do more work
per hour but can with safety work
longer hours because less human en
ergy is expended and it therefore re
quires less time for the worker tc
recuperate. No one should work
till utterly exhausted, for this in
jures efficiency for several days.
Real fatigue therefore costs money
in reduced efficiency, doctor's bills
and funerals, and from a money
standpoint it is economy to reduce
farm labor and drudgery to the min
imum. And in this connection it is
well to remember that not only does
machinery return a cash dividend by
reducing the cost of fatigue but so
does anything which promotes rest,
relaxation, and repose-such thing?
as good music, bathing facilities,
easy chairs, etc.,-and which there
fore help the body to replenish the
energy expended during work.
How much is fatigue and "dog
weariness" costing your family each
year? What better way of saving
money is there than to invest it in
Statement From Andrew Simkins.
Mr. Editor of Advertiser:
Dear Sir:-Will you please allow
rae a small place in your paper to
correct what I regard as a great in
justice to rae?
Now, Mr. Editor, the colored
people of tbis community have been
celebrating the Emancipation Proc
lamation for years, and I have been
their chairman for some time. We
had decided or had arranged to
hold our celebration on April 13.
A committee, headed by Mr. J. H.
Cheatham, met the committee of the
9th day of April, saying that they
were sent from the Teachers' Asso
ciation to inform us that they had
decided to have a patriotic mass
meeting on April 20. The com
mittee, headed by J. H. Cheathara,
asked that the two meetings be
combined and held on the sama
day to save time, which was agree
able with both committees. After
wards we went to the editor of the
Chronicle and told him what we
wanted, and to publish it in the
next issue, which he did.
Now, Mr. Editor, I see from your
paper of April 3 a piece headed,
"Mass Meeting," signed by J. Ii.
Cheatham, board of Council of De
fense, that the mass meeting "will
take the place of the usual 9th of
April celebration, wbich means
nothing, and is empty in so far as
any good that could be accomplish
ed. Past events hoid nothing for
us in this case."
?s'ow I want J. H. Cheathara to
understand that he did not speak
my sentiments as to the celebration
of 9th of April, and I don t think
the sentiment of the colored people
of Edgefield county.
I would have ignored J. H.
Cheatham's announcement, but I
see he signed my name to it.

Close to Nature.
In the great analysis of things,
real life is made up of the simple
things, generosity, kindliness, for
giveness, sympathy and human un
derstanding. In no field of endeaver
is there so much need of this real life
as upon the farms. Good common
sense, character and integrity the
farmers have and in quality the
equal of that to be found in any
other sphere of life. Always close
to nature they partake of nature's
wonderful fountain of the things
that are best.
It is only when we draw apart
from nature that we become obsess
ed with the things that are not best.
Holding close to nature we keep
close to each other. The whole
philosophy of human brotherhood
is based in human understanding.
As we come to understand each
other better we realize how depen
dent we are, one upon the other;
that in a number of minds there is
apt to be a wider knowledge than
is possessed by one mind; that co
ordinated they will plan tho future
better, solve vexing problems more
easily, accomplish more by building
with each other than pulling against
each other. Cooperation, these days,
is the key to progress.-Farm and
