caused anxiety as to the atten

red, there were good represent
from Stevens Creek, Edgefiek
rea and Mt. Creek, all grades of
societies being in attendance.
The meeting was called to
by Mrs. Cogburn who made
appropriate remarks concernin
feeling of responsibility in reg?
the office and throughout the se
presided with a manner to elie
terest, and attention to the pro;
Miss Kellah Fair conducted tl
votions, and Miss Hortense Pa
acted as secretary. When the ri
societies was called, responses
made from Edgefield by Mrs. 1
Hollingsworth; Mountain Creek,

Swearingen; Stevens Creek, Mi
R. Blocker and Miss Ruby Rar
The music was good, the org
being Miss Lena Stevens and pi
Mrs. Wilbur Barling, the choir ac
to the volume of song. A very s^
toned Remington piano has been
in the church by Rev. John A.
and this added greatly to the m
Stevens Creek being peculiarly
t?nate in having so capable a pk
as Mrs. Harling.

The meeting was adjourned wit
prayer by Mr. White for our Sailoi
and Soldiers and the recess was sper
most delightfully in conversatio
with friends, new and old. There i
no fellowship like that of Christian
interested in and laboring for a corr
mon cause and that cause such
great and noble one as is the effor
. to spread the gospel of Christ througi
out a lost world.
The dinner was largely, alo'ng th'
sweet line, of substitutes which real

and the results very palatable. Ii
spite of conservation exhortations
but true to the traditions of Steven;
Creek a very enticing row of coife<
pots, the contents especially tempt
ing on so cold a day, was in conspic
uous evidence, and it is extremely
doubtful if any coffee pot went home
full, as doubtful as if any of thc
people went home empty.
This does not mean that the people
of Stevens Creek are not observing
all conservation rules to the letter,
but as one good hostess said, "We
can get 50 cents worth of sugar at
a time, and we would rather use it
for such a cause as this and deny
ourselves until the next allotment
The Sunbeam session is always in
teresting. This time it was peculiarly
so, because of the nature of the pro
gramme, embodying as it did reports
from all the Sunbeam societies and
tha observance of State Mission Day
by the Stevens Creek sunbeams un
d'?r the leadership of Mrs. Alex Wat
The roll was called by thc secre
tary, Miss Hortense Padgett. Berea
was represented by little Miss Jennie
Pope Timmerman in a recitation, "I
want to be a Sunbeam," given splen
didly, Miss Ida Timmerman having
made the report.
Mountain Creek Sunbeams were
reported by little Miss Claree Faulk
ner who set a worthy example to the
grown ups in her clear enunciation
and enthusiasm. Miss Kellah Fair re
ported from Edgefield's Sunbeams.
At this point Mrs. Watson, leading
a long processional of the Stevens
Creek Sunbeams, all of them looking
as if they had just come out of a
band box, and radiating smiles and
[real sunshine, entered the church and
Were seated, and the exercise began,
the scripture lesson being given by
George Bell gave the welcome and
all the Sunbeams sang, "To the
Work." Then Uncle Hiram, imperso
nated by Carl Bryan and Aunt Lucy
by Addie Blocker, came on the plat- J
form in a quandary as to where their
children should attend school this
fall, believing as they did in "Chris
tian Education." It was finally left
to the children, as most things are '
these days, and we hope they will
decide wisely as did these fine little
children of Stevens Creek, for But-,
1er Bryan decided to go to Furman,
Marv Ida Watson to the G. W. C.,
Helen Timmerman to Anderson col

Then Francis DeVore came in and
told of the Good Will Centers and
Lewis Watson and George Bell ap
peared as Catawba Indians and
thanked the Woman's Missionary Un
ion for putting comfortable church
pews in the Indian church at Rock j
Martha Bell gave a selection which
was a full resume of all our State
Mission board is doing, little Ruth
Harling in a voice as sweet as a
j nightingale gave the song, "Jesus
Bids Us Shine," and Ellen Buzzard
came in last dressed in the costume
of a colored "Mammy" thanking the
societies for their kindness in doing
"personal service" for her race.
An offering was then taken for the
Sunbeam treasury of $3.33, and Mrs.
Tillman, who was presiding over the
Sunbeam session called upon Mr.
White to talk for ten minutes on
"the duty of the church in mission-,
ary training of the children." This j
he did most effectively. Mrs. Cogburn :
called for the reading of the minutes
which were approved and on invita-i
tion from Mrs. W. R. Swearingen, |
president of Berea society, the next
division meeting was announced for
that church in May, 1919.
Miss Minnie Lanham was present
and made an appeal for renewed ac
tivity among the Young Woman's ;
and Girl's Auxiliaries.
"Asleep In Jesus."
"Ere sin could blight, or sorrow fade,
Death came with friendly care;
The opening bud to heaven conveyed
And bade it blossom there." j
With sad and bleeding hearts we
bow to the dispensation of an all I
wise Father who doeth all things
well, though ti is hard to see the
wisdom in this sad bereavement. j
On last Friday morning, September
13, at one o'clock, thc death angel1
entered the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Charlie De Armon and took from the
fond parents and little brothers and j
sisters, little Earl, eight year old
son of Mr. and Mrs. DeArmon. The j
little one had been ill only one week.
Weep not, fond mother, at the I
thought of the parting. He has only i
gone before, and awaits you in a
land beyond the skies. Though his
bright life is ended here, he will al
ways beckon us heavenward.
The funeral took place at Hardys
Baptist church at ten o'clock Satur
day morning, the services being con
ducted by the pastor, Rev. P. B. Lan
ham. Mesdames C. B. Murrah and
J. A. Matthews sang very tenderly,
"Shall We Meet Beyond the Skies."
We beg to mingle our tears and to
extend our sympathy to the grief
stricken mother and father, and the
little brothers and sisters, who will
miss little Earl in the home every
hour. Jesus said, "Sui;er the littic
children to come unto me, and forbid
them not; for of such is the Kingdom
The pall bearers were, Messrs. C.

BEN L. HOLSTON.
To the People of Edgefield
Your Government now comes to
you again and asks you to lend it
some of your money upon what will
be called the Fourth Liberty Loan
Bonds. You are asked to lend your
Government this money because your
Government needs it to buy food,
clothing, ammunition, guns, ships,
and every army equipment for your
boys who are fighting for humanity,
for liberty, for democracy and against
autocracy, for Christianity, and for
the maintenance of our freedom and
liberty here in our own country for
which our fathers fought so glorious
ly. Our boys at the front are placing
their lives in jeopardy, offering to
sacrifice their existence for our lib
erties and freedom from the domi
nation of the brutal Hun. Shall we
fail to back them with our last dol
lar if necessary? No, No, No, the an
swer comes from every section of our
country, from every section of our
state, from every section of our coun
ty. We have demonstrated our loy
alty and our patriotism in the cam
paigns for the preceding bond issues.
Edgefield county has gone on the
Honor Roll in the last campaign, and
let us repeat this act of patriotism
again for the Fourth Liberty Loan.
I beg^hat every man, woman and
child here at home join the legion of
the Fourth Liberty Loan and back up
our dear boys who are fighting our
battles over there. This is the only
way we can help them make our
fight. No sacrifice of our means
we could make would be too much
for us to do, even if we were giving
this money without any return ex
cept the maintenance of freedom
and liberty from the domination of
the Hun for our country and for our
Allies. But we are not giving one
cent. Our Government is only asking
us to lend it our money, and receive
interest for the loan of it. And for
what purpose are we lending it? We
are lending it to protect, defend and
preserve our own rights, and receive
interest also for the loan.
I say that no man is too poor to
come to the aid of his Government
in securing this loan. You may thin>c
that you need your money for other
purposes, but no other purpose is
so sacred, so necessary as your boys
and your Government. These bonds
will bring you money any day at any
bank in our country. These bonds
are the best security you can offer
at your bank for money. We desire
everybody to buy bonds this time.
The point has been made and correct
ly that in our Southern section a
smaller per cent of our people have
bought bonds than in the North and
West. Let us change this fact in the
Fourth Liberty Loan Campaign. Let j
us show to the world the figures that
as large per cent of our people are
backing up our Government as in any
other section of our country.
You can not roll back the senti
ment. It is sweeping over our country
from center to circumference, know
ing no section or difference that,
"The man who does not buy Liberty
Bonds according to his means is a
I appeal to the people of Edgefield
county to respond to this call liberal- J
ly. See that your name is written on
this roll of honor. Back up your boys
on the battle front as they are stand
ing up for America. They have es
tablished the record that Americans
do not know how to retreat, and have
inspired the whole of the Allies with
thi3 spirit, until our armies are driv
ing the Huns back towards the Rhine.
Let us show the same spirit here at
home. When, our Government asks
us to lend it some of our money, let
us offer it all to our Government. Let
us show to the world that we are the
greatest people on the face of the
earth, which I know that we are. Let
everybody subscribe to the Fourth
Liberty Loan. Meet the sales commit
tees in your section and do your duty.
A. E. PADGETT, Chairman
for Edgefield County.
Don't Rush Seed to Mill Ad
vises Gov. Manning.
In a statement issued yesterday
Gov. Manning urges the farmers of
the State not to rush cotton seed to
thc mills, and prepare for next spring
by exchanging seed for meal wher
ever practical. The governor's state
ment follows in full:
To the Farmers and Ginners of
South Carolina : As a farmer and one
deeply interested in the farming in
terests of the State, I am impelled to
ur^re upon you not to rush seed to the
oil mills. I urge this because at many
points there is now such congestion
that cars are on demurrage. Farmers
should not load cars with seed until
they actually make a sale. Due to
thc short crop, and to the enormous
demand for cotton seed meal, a short
age for next spring stares- us in the
face. I urj;e the farmers to exchange
seed for meal wherever practical, or
to sell the seed and at once buy the
meal and haul it home so as to make
sure of their supply. I am informed
that some of the mills have stopped
buying seed because they have al
ready got as much as they can han

'UTTITH the approach of winter )rour eye naturally wanders toward
good-looking shoes, that is. unless you are one of those hardy
young men who wear oxfords the year 'round.
In either case, as a wearer of shoes, you will be likely to approve the
new Walk-Over last. With a pair of these shoes on your feet you
will be wearing the type of shoe that you like best, and you will be
pleasantly surprised at the finer appearance your feet make.
Walk-Over Shoes are manufactured at Campello, Brockton. Mass.,
are sold in all the important towns and cities of the world, and the
world over bear the same trade mark.

die, so that at many points it is im
possible for the farmers and ginners
to find a sale for their seed.
"I have gone into this matter with
well informed farmers and others,
and have reached the conclusion that
we should accept the stabilized prices
that have been fixed. This price can
be obtained if the farmers and gin
ners will not offer it in such volume
as to glue the market.
"I therefore urge upon those hav
ing seed to dispose of them gradual
ly, to load cars only after an actual
sale or exchange has been made, and
to secure their meal and store it in
?heir barns for use next spring."
