being urged to keep the ' ??ntenary
Movement in their minds and hearts.
We cannot accomplish our aim or

neglected on account of our lack of
interest in this great movement?

Watch Your Label.
Watch the label on your paper and
renew your subscription before it ex
pires. We are compelled to discontin
ue the paper at the date of expiration
of every subscription. Absolutely no
exception is made of anyone. The
government has made us discontinue
the old way and enforce the paid-in
advance system. We find that a vast
majority of our subscribers like thc
new way better.
Mass Meeting Called.
A mass meeting will be held in the
court house Saturday morning look-;
ing to making plans for the curtail
ment of the cotton acreage. Those j
who are in New Orleans attending
the cotton conference will report in
person the result of the conference.
This meeting Saturday should be at
tended not by the farmers only, but
by bankers, lawyers, doctors, mer
chants and business men generally.
Farmers are not the only class who
are interested in holding up the price
of cotton. Every business and pro
fession are as vitally affected. We
must make a long pull, a strong pull
and a pull all together, if we expect
to win this fight.
Another Naval Hero Returned.
One of Edgefield's most popular
and beloved sons, J. H. Carmichael,
came over for the week-end and was
the guest of Julian Strother. Ham
mond was one of the first naval vol
unteers and served on the U. S. S.
Nashville which cruised in the Med
itteranean, on the coasts of Spain
and Africa and back and forth on the
High Seas. Those who have been for
tunate enough to hear him talk say
he has many wonderful incidents to
relate in a most charming manner.
He is now at'Kathwood, S. C.
Death of Mr. M. S. Walker.
After a lingering illness which ex
tended over several years. Mr. M. S.
?Walker died at his home six miles
northwest of Edgefield, Thursday
night. He had been confined to his
bed for nearly two years. Mr. Walker
was in his 8S th year at the time of
his death. While he did not mingle
with the outside world, Mr. Walker
was a great reader and was weJJ in
formed upon the leading topics of
the day and could converse very in
terestingly upon such matters when
his friends called to see him. Mr.
Walker's life was one of almost en
tire seclusion, having visited Edge
field but twice since the Civil War.
He possessed remarkable business
ability and managed his farming in
terests very successfully, especially
in the active years of his life.
Mr. Walker is survived by an only
brother, Mr. Herbert Walker, who
resided with him. The interment took
place in the family burying ground
at the Talbert place.
Church Debt to be Paid.
Rev. Robert G. Lee issues a church
calendar every week in which he not
only announces the services for the
week but keeps the members of his
congregation informed upon every
phase of the church life and activi
ties. The weekly calendars have .prov
en to be a great stimulus to the work
of the church. In the calendar of last ?
Sunday, Mr. Lee announced that,,
next Sunday an effort will be made '
to raise sufficient money to pay off ?
the debt on the church building. He-j
preached a very earnest sermon Sun- j
day morning bearing upon the special |,
undertaking, which greatly increased ,'
the enthusiasm and interest in the,
movement. A full attendance of the
membership of the church is desired
next Sunday. The debt on the church
must be paid oif and then soon there
after thc building can be dedicated,
to thc service of God. Although the \'
building has been completed four .
years or more, it, has never been ded- y
icated because of the debt hanging
,.v; r H. It ought to be raised in full |
Tiext Sunday. ,
Death of Mr. J. G. Byrd.
Although not unexpected, because ?
of the sc-rjous illness of the past two
weeks, the death of Mr. J. G. Byrd
which occurred at his home near Bc
rea, Wednesday, caused much gen
uine sorrow in Edgefield. Not only
have his frequent visits to Edgefield
during practically all his life caused
him to have scores and hundreds of
friends, but during the two terms he
served as public cotton weigher at |
this place he was brought into very
intimate relations with our people
and the more they saw and knew of
him the more he became endeared to
them. Mr. Byrd was quiet and unob
trusive in his manner yet he never
failed to impress favorably the people
with whom he came in contact, be
cause of his high sense of honor and
his rectitude of character.
Mr. Byrd was in his 58th year at
the time of his death and all of his j
life lie had lived in the same commu- j
nity. He was held in the highest es- j
teem and his demise leaves a large j
vacant place in the community left.
He was generous anti public-spirited,
always willing to do his part in every ?
thing that was undertaken for the .
public welfare. During the war just j
closed. Mr. Byrd was 100 per cent,
loyal and patriotic, willingly giving ;
un his eldest son, William, to go to ;
the front. Mr. Byrd was a Mason and
was buried with Masonic honors.
The funeral was held at Gilgal
church Thursday afternoon, being
conducted by his pastor, Rev. P. ?B.
Mr. Byrd is survived by his wife
and the following children to mourn
his loss: William J.; Mrs. Ollie Grif
as, Mrs. Joseph Cartledge, Oswald,
Osie, Holloway, Hammond, Ellie Ed
na and Warren.
For the Children.
Too much care cannot be exercised
in selecting a cough medicine for
children. It should be pleasant to
take, contain no harmful drug and
most effectual in curing their coughs
and colds. Long experience has shown
that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
meets these conditions. It is a fa
vorite with many mothers.
Death of Much Beloved Con
Edgefield county lost one of its
?best citizens last week when Mr. Si
las Y once, familiarly known as "Un
cle Silas," died in Charleston. Ac
companied by his physician, Dr.
Stone and his son, Mr. Wilbur Yonce,
Mr. Yonce went to Charleston Tues
day of last week to have his foot
treated by a specialist. . After Mr.
Wilbur took his father up to his room
at the hotel Tuesday night, he and
Dr. Stone went out in the city to visit
the brother of the latter, and on re
turning to the hotel they found that
Mr. Silas Yonce was in a dying con
dition, having beep gassed'. It seems
that Mr. Yonce turned the gas on the
heater in the room and failed to light
it or extinguish the flames of the gas
heater without fully turning off the
gas. He was suffocated by the escap
ing gas in the room. The odor of gas
was detected in the building by the
manager just before Mr. Wilbur
Yonce returned to the hotel and up
on investigation it was found to be in
the room of Mr. Yonce. Life was al
most extinct when his room was en
tered. Every possible effort was made
to revive him but he was discovered
too late for any human effort to save
The announcement of his death
caused much genuine sorrow among
his friends in Edgefield and wherever
he was known in the county.
Mr. Yonce was in his S5th year and
for more than forty years he was ah
elder in Mt. Calvary church. He was
the incarnation of all that was true
and honorable and upright. No man
in thc county, particularly in the
eastern part of the county, wielded |
a wider and more wholesome influ
ence than "Uncle Silas" Yonce. Truly
a good man has gone to his reward.
He served for four years in the
Confederate army, rendering faith
ful and gallant service for his coun
Mr. Yonce died about four o'clock
Wednesday morning and his body
reached Johnston Wednesday night.
Thursday afternoon the funeral and
interment took place at Mt. Calvary
church, the funeral being conducted
by Rev. J. II. Kinard.
He.is survived by his beloved wife
ind three children, Mr. E. L. Yonce,1
Mrs. Arthur Herin and Mr. J. Wilbur,
