Mass Meeting Called.
The Advertiser has been requested
to announce that a mass meeting will
be held in the Court House Fri
day afternoon at six o'clock for the
purpose of considering ways and
means of providing a new hotel for
Edgefield. As this is one of the town's
greatest needs, the meeting should be
Baptist Services Sunday.
During my absence next Sunday,

serve God. I shall be grateful for
faithful service during my absence.

.9 Land at Auction.
Next Monday and Tuesday an op
portunity will be given prospective
home builders to purchase desirable
lots. An auction sale as advertised in
a page advertisement in this issue
will be conducted by^the South At
lantic Realty Company. Read care- jJ
fully the property that is listed and I
attend the sale. Doubtless there are i1
persons residing now in the country!'
who contemplate moving to Edgefield. :
If so, now is the time for them to,*
secure one or more desirable lots. J
An Old-Fashioned Barbecue. J
Wednesday afternoon Mr. George ? ^
W. Adams invited half a hundred j
young people out to his "Breeze I
Hill' farm to enjoy an old-fashioned;,
barbecue. He engaged an experienced 1
chef who prepared and served the
feast in the most approved manner.
At the close of the feast all went into
the residence where passed several
very pleasant hours "tripping the
light fantastic" to the bewitching
strains of a victrola. The occasion
was one of rare pleasure to all who
were honored with invitations.
.Work Soon to Begin.
"Material is being placed in the lot
?near the Baptist church for the erec
tion of the parsonage. Instead of en
gaging a contractor to furnish the
material and complete the building
for a given sum, the building commit
tee will purchase the material and
employ the labor, having engaged
Mr. James Langston to superintend
in the work. Mr. Langston is conceded
to be one of the best workmen Edge
field has ever had and the committee
bat. made no mistake in securing his
services. He did much of the work
on the new church.
Very Early Sweet Potatoes.
C. W. Watson, the champion po
tato raiser and plant distributor,
brought us the largest new crop
sweet potatoes of the famous Porto
Rica variety which grow extra early
and very large. Unlike many other
kinds, they cook sweet when first dug.
This is the kind that he ha.i sold a
very large number of the plants o /er
Edgefield and other counties the past
season. Better see Mr. Watson now
about supplying your plants for next
Must Have a Hotel.
What will become of the strangers
who come within Edgefield's gates if
the town has no hotel accomodations?
It is within the range of probabilities
that the Hotel Dub?se may close its
doors to the public. Under present
conditions no one can blame the pro
prietor for adopting such a course.
Then, what will people do who are
forced by circumstances to spend the
night here? Private homes will be
closed to' them. Edgefield should and
must have a modern hotel.
Likes Edgefield Better.
Mr. Osmond Williams who has been
making his home in Blenheim, Marl
boro county, during the past year,
came to Edgefield this morning from
Columbia where he has been with
Mrs. Williams who underwent a sur
gical operation at the hospital Mon
day. She stood the operation splen
didly. Upon being asked how he liked
Marlboro, Mr. Williams stated that
Marlbof o is a good county bue Edge
field is a better one. He will probably
remain a year longer in the Pee Dee
section however. Mr. Williams has
gone to Cleora to visit his father, Mr.
C. M. Williams.
. Capt. George B. Lake.
In its report yesterday of the Con
federate re-union which is being held
in Greenwood this week, the Index
contained the following paragraph
which is of interest to The Adver
Capt. C. A. C. Waller vouches for
the truth of this incident of the late
George B. Lake, of Edgefield. When
the explosion took place at the Cra
ter one of the men said that as he
was blown up in the air he met a man
coming down who cried out, "Rally,
boys as soon as you hit the ground."

Increased Capital Stock.
The charter of the Bank of Tren
ton empowered the institution to is
sue stock to the amount of $25,000
but up to this time the bank has is
sued only about $16,000- in stock.
Tuesday 3 meeting of the stockhold
ers was held for the purpose of in
creasing the paid-in capital to $25,
000 and all of the new issue was tak
en in less than a day. The par value
of the stock is $50 per share but the
accumulated surplus has made the
stock worth $85 per share and the
new stock was issued on that basis,
the premium being passed to the sur
plus account, making the paid in cap
ital now $25,000 and the surplus
517,000. The Bank of Trenton has
been well managed and its volume of
business has steadily grown. 1

J. W. Geraty, a truck planter of
South Carolina, declared that if the
proposed duty was made effective the
cost of potash would be prohibitive to
farmers. He told the committee that
to produce nearly normal crops the
first year the German supply was cut
off because of the accumulated a
mount in the land, but said that for
the second year the yields fell off 30
per cent and that this year crops on
land for which potash was necessarv
would be only 25 to 30 per cent of
normal. The American product, he
said, is inferior to foreign potash.
