postmaster for Edgetield, the plaes j
' i a v i 11 jr been filled sine" thu death
of the late postmaster by Mr. Mark j
Miller, who nerved for a number of |
years as assistant. Having made j

pofce of filling the office, Mr. C. M. j
Melliohamp was nominated several
weeks ago for the place, and infor
mation has been received in ridge
field to tile effect tfiat this nomina
tion was confirmed by the senate
Monday. This means that within

pabl? wi.ll makti good in this impor

postoflice in the county, and that
