Nursery Fills Great Need.
Many mothers of the Baptist
church who have found it impossible
to attend church because of the lack
.f some one with whom to leave the
fcaby or small children can now at
tend by taking their babies with them
and leaving them in the nursery in j
the basement of the church. Reliable
colored women have been engaged to
?are for the little ones. Last' Sunday
morning there were twenty-two ba
bies and small children in the nursery
during the preaching hour, which
?hows that many mothers appreciate
the efforts of Rer. R. G. Lee in pro
riding a place for their little ones.
Death of Mrs. W. E. Turner.
Mrs. Turner, the beloved wife of
Mr. Ed Turner, died at her home near
McKendree church Friday night a
.out 10 o'clock after being ill about
ten weeks. Mrs. Turner became a vic
tim of influenza in January and in
stead of recovering grew steadily
weaker. She was a noble woman, a
devout Christian and onie of the most
active members of the McKendree
?hureh. Having made a profession of
religion early in life, her influence in
the home and in the community has
always been ennobling and uplifting.
Her death will leave a large place un
filled. Before her marriage Mrs. Tur
aer was Miss Dora Ouzts, a member
.f an old and honored family of the
community ia which she spent her en
Besides her devoted husband, Mrs.
Turner leaves two daughters, Mrs.
Bessie Hall and Miss Narcie Turner,
and six sons, Milledge, Coke, Frank,
Fired, Hollie and Heyward Turner,
tiie youngest being about fifteen
years of age.
The funeral.was conducted Sunday
aaorning at ll o'clock by Rev. M. M.
Brabham, the beloved pastor of Mc
Death of Mrs. C. C. Fuller.
For several years Mrs. Charles C.
Fuller had been an invalid, most of
the time on a rolling chair, but her
family and multitude of friends
hoped that he would be spared many
years to be a comfort and counselor
to her large and devoted family. The
family were summoned to her bedside
Sunday night and Monday morning
at 4 o'clock her spirit passed out, and
with her the large and happy family
circle is broken.
Mrs. Fuller would have been 87
years of age her next birthday, but
until her late illness and decline in
health was very youthful in spirit.
She was for many years president of
the Woman's Mission society at
Bethany where she held her member
ship, and from which church the fu
neral services were conducted on
Tuesday afternon at 4 o'clock, her
pastor, Rev. Mr. Smith of McCormick
officiating. It was appropriate that
her beloved form, before being con
signed to the grave, should be carried
to the church which she had loved so
long and to which so many years of
her life had been consecrated.
* Besides her devoted husband, Mr.
C. C. Fuller, she leaves four sons,
W. W. Fuller of Edgefield, Dr. R. M.
Fuller of McCormick, Dr. C. C. Fuller
of Greenwood and Mr. Earle Fuller
who resides at the old home where
his mother died. The- daughters are,
Mrs. J. N. Robinson of Augusta, Mrs.
Felix Moorer of St. George, Mrs W.
A. Byrd of Edgefield, Mrs. Waiter
Hilton of Greenwood and Misses
Irene and Lila Fuller at home.
Sad Death of a Young Mother.
All of the Philippi section, and
many other parts of our county,
were saddened wh^n it was learned
thal; Mrs. Lewis Holmes, so well
known in Edgefield as Anna Belle
Morg' a had passed away from her
happy home near Philippi. Mrs.
Holmes spent several years at the
South Carolina Co-Educational In
stitute at Edgefield, both she and Mr.^
Holmes being students at that ochool.
She had been ill since last fall, and in
the University Hospital of Augusta
part of that time. Nothing could con- 1
quer the physical trouble which as- !
sailed her, and in spite of all the Hos
pitals, physicians, love and prayers
and attentions of her friends and
loved ones, she was called up higher
and her remains were laid to rest at
Philippi on Friday aftenoon, her pas
tor, Rev. Mr. Baker officiating.
She was a member of the church
and the Mission society and the W.
C. T. U., and zealous in all the best
causes of her community, even with
three little children in the home to be
cared for. This happy and worthy
home was being improved, and soon
a new and more commodious place
of residence was to be erected and
everything was encouraging for a
long and prosperous journey togeth
Mrs. Holmes leaves her husband
and three small children, and her
mother, Mrs. Julia Morgan and sis
ters and brothers. The sympathy of
our whole county goes out to this
young father and the motherless chil
dren and the devoted mother.
The soldier boys are still coming
home and are receiving a most cordial
welcome, not only from their imme
diate families and loved ones but
from the people generally. Since last
week the following- have arrived
from Camp Jackson with honorable
discharges: Preston Lanham, Claude
Lyon, Wallace Hammond, Elbert
Dorn, Frank Smith, William Bryant,
Yates Quarles and Stobo Prescott.
Visit From Young Soldier.
The Advertiser was honored with a
visit Monday morning from Mr. John
Derrick and his son, Cephas Derrick,
who was recently granted an honor
able discharge from the army. Cephas
volunteered for military service in
stead of waiting to be drafted and
made a good record, being a corporal
at the time he was discharged. He is
one of a number of splendid boys
who reside in the Philippi section,
which is easily one of the foremost
sections of Edgefield county.
Large Attendance Expected.
A special effort is being made by
the pastor, superintendent and teach
ers of the Baptist Sunday School to
have 300 persons present next Sun
day morning. The attendance has
been steadily increasing for some
time and it is confidently believed
that the attendance next Sunday up
on the Baptist Sunday School will be
the largest on record. All of the peo
ple in Edgefield next Sunday who are
not sick should attend some one of
the several Sunday Schools. Few are
too young and none are too old.
No Cheaper Ford Cars Yet.
Those who have been waiting for
a cheaper Ford ear before buying will
be disappointed. T'-.e Yonce Motor
Company publishes in its half-page
advertisement this week a letter from
the Ford Company in which the posi
tive declaration is made that the
mueh-talked-of Cheap Ford Car will
not be put on the market for several
years yet. So it is useless, if you need
a car, to wait longer to purchase a
Ford. Four styles of cars are shown
in the advertisement above referred
to and Mr. Yonce will take pleasure
in demonstrating either car, if you
are not acquainted with Fords. Every
body in Edgefield county knows what
Ford cars are. That's why they are in
such great demand. Read what Mr.
Yonce says this week.
Leitter From Robert L. Adams
to His Sister.
My Dear Sister:
I received your letter and read it
with pleasure. I am always glad to
hear from anyone at home. I am very
tired, have been working very hard.
Orders are now, that we will leave
the first of April. I hope things won't
change for I sure do want to get cut
of the army and hope to see the day
when I can place my feet on the boat
and come hocking across the deep,
blue sea and meet my loved ones at
home once more.
How are all my things getting on?
Take good care of them for me. I
hope I will soou be there to attend to
them myself. Do not look for me un
til you see me though, for orders '
sometime change. j
I will be glad when I can see you
and tell you all about France and my
experiences. Paul and I are having a
big time with the French girls. I think
they are very pretty. I'll send you a
picture of myself, you can look at it
while I am far away.
It is most bed-time and I will close.
Pray that I may reach home safely.
Write me soon.
Your Brother, 5
