Arrived from Overseas.
The Advertiser was honored with
a call fra m John Agner yesterday
afternoon. He has just arrived from
France, having secured an honorable
discharge through an application
from his father, Mr. Sam Agner, be
cause he is greatly needed on the
farm, certainly more than-the govern
ment needs him at this time. John
conversed freely and very interesting
ly upon what he saw and actually ex
perienced during the eight months
that he was on overseas duty. He was
granted his discharge on March 13,
this being his 28th birthday. This
young man was very cordially greet
ed by his friends in Edgefield. There
are other Edgefield boys in France
that should be granted honorable dis
charges, as JohnAgner was.
I desire to state to the public that
I will throw open the doors of my
new store for business Saturday
morning. Many good things to eat
will be ready. Will give a fuller no
tice next week.

Easter Egg Hunt.
An Easter Egg hunt was given at
the home of Miss Lottie Corley last
Saturday afternoon. Quite a number
of little children and young . folks
gathered there to find the eggs hidden
in the tajl clover and grass. While the
crowd was gathering they played
games out on the lawn. La'ter the eggs
were found. Albert Seigler won the
prize, a box of candy.
After all the eggs were found, re
freshments were csrvcd. All the chil

of eggs. The hous . v a ; beautifully

How Diphtheria is Contracted.
One often hears the expressoin,
"My child caught a severe cold which
developed into diphtheria," when the
truth was that the cold had simply
left the little one particularly suscep
tible to the wandering diphthera
germ. If your child has a cold when
diphtheria is prevalent you should
take him out of school and keep him
off the street until fully recovered,
as there is a hundred times more dan
ger of his taking diphtheria when he
has a cold. When Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is given it quickly
cures the cold and lessens the dan
ger of diphtheria or any other germ
disease being contracted.
