land, France and America will by
tacit agreement, if not otherwise,
form themselves into an irrisistible
triumvirate that will make war al
most impossible hereafter. That the
bonds which now link these three
powerful nations together are forg
ed of steel no one will deny. Not on
ly are they forged of steel but no
force hereafter will be great enough
to burst them asunder. As long as
these great powers stand together op
posed to war, what nation would dare
disturb the world's serenity? Amer
ica loves peace rather than war, and
our prediction is that England and
France will never enter a war against
the judgment and wishes of the Am
Drive at Safe Speed.
The Advertiser has never been dis
posed to "knock" automobiles. Ex
cept in a few isolated cases, we be
lieve automobiles are a helpful fac
tor in the world's progress. They car
ry the country people to the towns
and on the other hand carry the town
people to the country, resulting in a
more intimate association and a bet
ter understanding among these two
classes of our citizenship if the urban
and rural population can be referred
to as separate elements of our citi
zenship. Certainly automobiles ren
der rural life more attractive by af
fording wholesome diversions in the
social and religious advantages of the
towns, and also they afford the town
people pleasure by enabling them to
make more frequent visits to the
We preface what we shall say con
demning some automobile owners
with the above words of commenda
tion of automobiles to convince ev
eryone that we have no prejudice
against automobiles or owners of au
tomobiles. There is an increasing ten
dency toward very rapid driving
along the public roads that is to be
deplored and should be discouraged.
Some white and colored people should
plead guilty to this charge and mend
their ways before a horrible accident
occurs, resulting in the loss of life.
Cars that are running at too high
speed are not altogether under the
control of their drivers, cannot be
stopped or "slowed up" in a short
space. Some cars meet or pass each
other or meet or pass horse drawn ve
hicles, at such a rapid rate of speed
that the slight variation from the di
rect course of either car or vehicle
would result in a very serious acci
dent. Whereas if traveling at a rea
sonable or moderate speed there
would be practically no danger.
We have noticed recently that
some young colored people are in
clined to drive at a reckless speed,
endangering their lives and the lives
of other persons who travel the pub
lic roads, endangering both those
who travel in automobiles and those
who ride in buggies. Up to this time
there has not been the slightest ob
jection to colored people buying and
owning cars on the part of the white
people, and there will not be as long
as they deport themselves properly
while using the cars. But driving at
a reckless speed along our public
roads, which in many places are very
narrow, will not be tolerated. Our
white pcoi le, however, should set the
colorea opie the proper example
in this, as well as in other respects.
Many of them feel at liberty to do
what they see their white friends do
ing. If we mistake not, there is a
maximum speed limit fixed by law
for rural highways as well as for
streets in towns and cities. If there
is not such a law, considering the
constantly increasing number of
cars, there should be. And, further
more, it should be enforced. A few
trials and convictions would greatly
lessen the evil of reckless driving.
Let's all of us, to the extent of our
influence and contact with others,
begin to create a sentiment for safe
and sane driving of automobiles up
on our public roads.

A marriage of great interest to
many friends in Edgefield and other
places as well, took place in Edge
field on Sunday afternoon at 3:30
o'clock when Miss Annie Cantelou
was married to Sergt. H. J. Munner
Miss Cantelou is the eldest daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Cantelou
and is much beloved here. She was a
student at the Greenville Woman's
College and the College for Women
in Columbia. Mr. Munnerlyn has been
a visitor in Edgefield for some time,
and is well known here. The marriage
was not unexpected, but was consum
mated earlier on account of the early
leave-taking of the men of the 81st
division of which Sergt. Munnerlyn
is a member. He is a native of Marl
borough county from Bennettsville,
and is a graduate of Wofford College
and member of the Kappa Alpha
fraternity of that college. He is also
on the staff of the headquarters
troop of the 81st division which
stands very high among the divisions.
The marriage took place immedi
ately after dinner at the home of the
bride's parents, with only the imme
diate family and Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
Cantelou and Mr. and Mrs. Bettis
Cantelou present. The ceremony was,
performed by Dr. E. Pendleton Jones,
and Mr. and Mrs. Munnerlyn went
in their car to Greenville where Mrs.
Munnerlyn will remain until the div- | ]
ision leaves for France. Many good
wishes follow them.
