Farms the Right Way.
Our friend Jack Harling was in
town Saturday and told the writer
that he has about three barrels of
old home-made flour on hand, and
that he has the best prospect for a
wheat crop he has ever had. Mr.
Hoover should send him a gold
medal. If we bad more Jack Har
lings over the country, we would
not need any flour regulations.
The New Hotel.
We believe that Mr. W. A.
Strom, who, as President Wilson
would say, is a forward-looking
(progressive) citizen, will soon sup
ply one of the town's greatest needs
by erecting a modern hotel on the
beautiful lot which he recently pur
chased facing the public 8quare.
Whatever Mr. Strom does he does
well. Hence we are looking for a
building soon to be erected on the
vacant'corner that will be a distinct
ornament to Edgefield for many
years to come.

A. E. Padgett, Chairman,
Liberty Loan Committee for Edge
Charlotte Tarrant Kuss has that
splendid authority of manner on the
platform gained from a convincing
and happy series of success in con
cert work. Her appearances number
engagements with several of the
most famou" orchestras. The Daily
News, of Galveston, Texas, says,
"She handles the harp with a queen
ly grace, and the music she .draws
from it carries one back through the
mazes of legend and history to the
days of empires and kingdoms cen
turies back, when the majesty of
the harp was supreme in the realms
of instrumental music. She has
delicacy of touch and a keen in
terpretation that stamp her as an
artist." Miss Kuss will be one of
the performers at the lyceum enter
tainment in the opera house Mon
Another Call For Men.
The local board has orders to
send 7 white men and 22 colored
men to Camp Jackson during the
five days following April 26. The
exact date for mobilization will be
announced later. The board has
the same instructions for filling this
increment of 29 men that it had for
tilling the last order for five white
men, which is to omit, in selecting
die men, all who are actively and
assiduously engaged in farming.
Simply residing upon a farm is not
sufficient ground for deferred mobili
zation. The registrant must be per
sonally and actively engaged in
As soon as the local board re
ceives official notice of the day and
hour of entrainment, the men will
be selected and officially notified of
the call to serve their country. All
registrants whose order number
places them in the current quota,
but who are actively engaged in
farming and desire to remain for
the present on the farm, will be
required to file an affidavit with the
board to the effect that they are
now engaged on the farm.

Patriotic Mass Meeting in Court
Through the efforts ef the Wo
men's Liberty Loan Committee, of
which Miss Elizabeth Rainsford is
the capable and enthusiastic chair
man, a patriotic mass meeting was
held in the courthouse Saturday af
ternoon at three o'clock. In spite
of the fact that a similar meeting
was held at Johnston at the same
hour, which meeting was also well
attended, a very large . number of
persons, both ladies and gentlemen,
gathered to hear the speakers The
meeting was oiesided over by Hon.
B. E. Nicholson, who requested
Rev. A. L. Gunter to open the
meeting with prayer.
The first speaker presented was
Mr. A. E. Padgett, who, instead of
speaking extemporaneously, read a
comprehensive and exceedingly in
teresting address upon the world-war,
closing with an earnest appeal to
the audience to purchase Liberty
The second speaker was Ex-Gov.
John C. Sheppard, who has all three
of his sons in the military service,
two of them being now in France.
Gov. Sheppard was at his best on
this occasion, and his eloquence
kindled anew the fires of patriotism,
making each one of his hearers re
solve to do his or her utmost in
winning the great war. He like
wise stressed the urgent necessity of
our people subscribing largely for
the third Liberty Loan Bonds.
The last speaker was one who,
althongh this was his first visit to
Edgefield, yet his name was famil
iar to hundreds of Edgefield people
who have read from day to day his
articles on agriculture which have
appeared in the Augusta papers.
We refer to Mr. N. L. Willet ot
Augusta, who was a guest in the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H.
Rainsford while in Edgefield. Mr.
Willet'8 theme was "Soldiers of De
mocracy." Besides giving maDy in
teresting facts in connection with
the war, Mr. Willet's very valuable
address contained many timely ad
monitions and much originality of
thought. It was declared by many
to be the best address of the kind
ever delivered in Edgefield. Not
withstanding the fact that Mr. Wil
let read his address from manu
script, he held the closet attention
of the audience from the opening to
the closing sentence. There were
many expressions of indebtedness to
Miss Elizabeth Rainsford for invit
ing this distinguished gentleman
from Augusta to deliver an address
on this occasion.
The patriotic rally was held on
the anniversary of America's enter
ing the war, and the meeting gave
an impetus to the Liberty Loan
drive. The ladies who compose
the Woman's Liberty Loan Com
mittee acted wisely in arranging the
meeting, and have followed it up
with personal work, which has been
attended with very gratifying re
Special Service at Trenton Pres

ing in Pennsylvania. The flowers
in church were very beautiful, Mrs.
P. B. Wise being organist.

pose. Ask for 2-ounce original package. The

The very severe winter through
which we have just passed was not
altogether without its blessings.
The low temperature which pre
vailed nearly two months will doubt
less improve sanitary conditions.
Many disease germs and harmful
insects were destroyed. Now if we
will begin early and improve the
sanitary conditions of the town
irenerally, the health of the commu
nity during the hot months that are
to follow will be greatly improved.
In order to accomplish this end there
should be a general spring cleaning
from the centre to the circumfer
ence. Now if this is done, it will
not be done by the town authorities,
but by the individual home owners.
If the entire premises surrounding
every home is well cleaned and put
in order then the entire town will|be
clean. .Mr. Hightower is having
every nook and corner of the mill
village thoroughly renovated and
whitewashed. Now let's continue
the work in every part of the town?
taking up the good example set by
Mr. Hightower. With almost &
perfect system of natural drainage,
there is no good reason why Edge
field's health record should not be
among the top of the list.
Make beginning by cleaning up
your own premises.
