Real Ford Service.
The Yonce Motor Company calls
attention this week to the importance
of having your Ford car properly
looked after, by mechanics who make
a study of Ford machines. Mr. Yonce
?has in his employment a mechanic
who was trained in the Ford factory,
consequently he is in a position to
give Ford cars and trucks the best
possible attention. What can be bet
ter than having your Ford car repair
ed with genuine Ford parts by a
Ford-trained mechanic? That is real
Ford service from start to finish. The
Yonce Motor Company sells the Has
sler Shock Absorbers that are sold
with ten days' trial free.
Wires Damaged by Falling
For the first time since the elec
tric light plant was installed the ser
vice was stopped Tuesday morning
about eleven o'clock by damage to
the wires by trees being blown across
them. Superintendent Hading and his
assistants got busy at once and re
paired the damage, turning on the
current again about six o'clock Tues
day afternoon. However during the
time that the plant was out of com
mission, The Advertiser had no power
and all the machinery in the office, in
cluding the linotype machine, was
stopped. This accounts for the delay
of nearly a day in publishing the pa
per this week.

Tribute to ray Dear Little Mc- ,
Kie Waunita. I
Baby has left her cradle for the ".
happy shore. We were not prepared'!
to part from our darling. Like a bolt
from a cloudless sky came God's I
message "Come." We weep and won- '
der why God took this pure darling
from us; so pure, so sweet, just three .
months old. Our darling is not dead, ;
the star has gone down to rise in par- ?
adise, to brighten heaven the more. 1
She now is a bright, shining angel in
God's home with no tears in her eyes,
no pain and no trouble.
Sometime our eyes shall see our
darling, that sweet face still in our
memory: sometime that dear little
hand will beckon to us to come. When
the baby angel meets us, as we go to
join the happy band, we shall know
'our darling by her shining eyes and
face. We can see her now, her sweet
voice floating to us through the calm j
air, that whispers "I'm watching for |
thee." She is not dead-she no longer
needs our poor protection. God Him
self doth rule day after day.
She is not dead-there is just a
night between, and sometime we will
see her, she will never be taken from
us in heaven. "Consider the lillies of
the field how they grow, they toil not,
neither do they spin, and yet I say
Solomon in all his glory was not ar
rayed like ene of these." God has tak
en thee to His holy resting place.

I First Sunday School Conven
Editor The Advertiser:
In reading Mrs. Minis' interesting
paper, read before the Sunday School
convention, it brought to my mind
memories of the days that are gone.
Forty-nine years ago the Sunday
School convention of Edgefield coun
ty was organized at Horn's Creek
by electing J. P. Mealing as president,
Luther Broadus, vice-president and
Dr. Pat Adams as secretary.
Among the select choir on that oc
casion were Capt. Markeri, William
Bryan, Hugh Harrison, Will Penn,
Dick Bonham, Hammet Teague and
some others that I do not now recall.
Miss Emma Roper, now Mrs. J. N.
Fair, presided at the organ. She is
the only one of the ladies and Dr.
Teague of the men now on this side
of the river as far as I know.
The opening address was delivered
by D. D. Branson who gave a.history
of the Sunday School movement from
iti beginning up to that time. Out of
eight or ten preachers who were
present, not one of them are now liv
The Horn's Creek communty at
that time was noted for its prosperi
ty, hospitality, gallant men and beau
tiful women. In thinking over the
happy hours spent there in my youth
ful days, I can to some extent, sympa
thize with, what must have been the
state of mind of him who wrote:
"I feel as one who walks alone
Some banquet hall deserted.''
One must grow (what the world
calls) old, in order to realize how fast
times change. Of all the hundreds'
of people who were present at that
first Sunday School convention, you
would be surprised to know how few
are living to-day. There were no min
utes published the first year but the
sceond year at Stevens Creek the
minutes will show a long list of del
egates that are numbered among
chose who sing in nobler, sweeter
strain, the power of Jesus to save.

Letter From an Edgefield Boy |
in Coblenz, Germany.
Dear Mr. Minis:
I will write you a few lines to let
1,-ou hear from me. I am well and hope
you are too. Am still in Coblenz but
;hink I will be back in Edgefield by
;he middle of September.
I sure have had a wonderful trip
?ince I left home. Was on two fronts,
;he Meuse- Argonne and St. Mihiel,
md believe me, that country was
sure torn up. Of course I was not in
;he trenches at all, was a litle behind :
;he lines dishing out c. c. pills and
painting the boys with iodine. j
I have seen French towns that did ]
lot have a house standing at all. A <
few rock walls were all that was left, ?
and all kinds of dug outs that the i
Huns had dug. They did not think i
they would ever have to leave them, s
but when the Yanks got in after them <
they left in a hurry. I have heard the ?
big guns bark for 72 hours without <
stopping so you know they had to i
move. The Germans said it was the
Vanks that won the war, but they
hate the French and English worse
than they do us.
You know the English tried to
move the Huns from the Verdun
front and couldn't do it, so we had a
song about them being a bunch of
"Yellow Backs." Of course, the Brit
ish navy took a great part in winning
the war-so did their anny-but the
Tommies could not fight like the
Yanks, I have the Germans' and
Frenchmen's words for it.
After the armistice was signed I
left D-and came back down in
France as far as Dijon. Then left
there in a Ford and came through
Toul and Metz to Coblenz. I have
been to the outposts in Germany,
about 30 miles further in than Co
blenz. I was out there when the peace
treaty was signed. We were there
ready to go at once, further into Ger
many if they had not signed. Guess
we would have been in Berlin by now
for we were fixed for going if we had
to fight our way. But as the trjaty
was signed, we wll get home instead
and all be happy.
I have seen about two-thirds of
France and one-third of Germany,
but me the U. S. A. for mine all the
time. France has lots of pretty girls
and some of the boys over here have
married a few of them, but I will take
an American girl or none at all.
