State Memorial Fund. Thanking you,

Colored People Planning to
Erect School Building.
The colored people are trying to
build a graded school in the Lime
stone section. We have consulted or
tried to consult ali of the white peo
ple. All that we failed to consult was
due to inconvenience and not that
past kindness was not appreciated.
Those to whom we have spoken seem
?o be deeply interested. We want it
understood that this is to he an
academy built for the purpose of
having the colored children taught
by colored teachers. It is not to build
up a political atmosphere, but we
will break down such influences and
do away with race prejudice. Color
ed boys and girls and being taught
in Northern colleges and as soon
as they finish they drift North.
We have been discouraged by
some few colored people who do not
seem to understand what a graded
school means, which shows that edu
cation is needed very badly. But we
did not feel so badly since we knew
that this is a community where mu
tual friendship exists. We are plan
ning an educational mass meeting
to be held on November 13 and 14
to raise money to finish the building.
The public is cordially invited. A
great many of our white friends
have voluntarily promised to help us
raise the $1,000 needed. Several
white. people have already given
liberally and we believe all will help,
knowing the need. We are here
where masses of colored children
have not been taught and we feel re
sponsible to God, if they fail to even
learn to read and write their names.
Oh, may our white friend and color
ed as well, help us. God will crown
His laborers with abundant success.

Strong Lyceum Course for the
A letter from the Piedmont Ly
ceum man has this to say, "Our sales
on the Knowlton Glee and Banjo
Club have been so large that they
cannot possibly reach Edgefield un
til late in October or the first days
of November, probably November '
"The Cambridge Players come
about two or three weeks later. We
had expected' to get the Knowltons
to Edgefield during the week of Oe
tober 20th, but the demand for them .
in the territory named above has '.
been unusually heavy. Mr. Milton is !
to reach Edgefield early in October
to assist you in your season ticket i
We shall be glad to have you put
the Lyceum course in your budget.
The people. who bring us these at
tractions are high toned, Christian
gentlemen, and the men and women -
who compose the several companies
are clean of life and of the best of
our citizens-many ' are educators,
artists of a high type and lecturers 1
on ennobling themes. Even the fun
and }oke is clean and of a high or- !
der. These attractions are all of the
best talent procurable, by the best
Lyceum companies, and come to us '
with a guarantee that we may wel
come any one of them into our
homes with perfect safety.
It is of vital importance that we
cultivate a taste for clean pleasure
in ourselves and children. The type
jof entertaining to be found in the or- j
dinary vaudeville lowers our moral
.standards and weakens our moral
?bre. Do not forget that every thing
we see and hear leaves its impress
upon our characters, and children
.are more influenced than those of '
nt at ure years. We will have especial !
thought for the children as we ai
rways have and shall reserve the
front rows of .c-,ats for them.
The Civic League is not conduct- .
ir.g this lyceum course for anything
but the good of our community.
Do not forget that this is your
-course and tell your neighbors about
it. So far a3 we know there is no ;
other course in our county for the
winter and we shall take pleasure in
placing our season tickets and adver
tising sheets all over the county. If
?vre do not come to you in our ticket
sale, please notify us and we will
mail you your tickets upon the re
.efeipt of price which will be published

Increased Pastor's Salary.
At a conference held last Sunday
immediately after the morning ser
vice the members of the ' Baptist
church unanimously adopted a reso
lution increasing the salary of Dr.
R. G. Lee, the pastor, from $2,000
to $3,000, his first year's pastorate
closing with the month of Septem
ber. This increase is well deserved.
There is no more indefatigable
worker in Edgefield than Dr. Lee,
his strenuous activities extending
over the entire seven days of the
week and frequently far into the
night. Dr. Lee has repeatedly shown
too, that his activities are not con
fined to his immediate membership,
nor to the town of Edgefield, but he
stands ready to serve everybody and
every part of the county. Long may
he live to labor in Edgefield and |

We carry a full assortment of the
celebrated Pathe phonographs, prices
ranging from $32.50 up, owing to
the style of cabinet. The Pathe is
second to no other talking machine
on the market. In fact it has several
valuable features that other ma
chines do not possess. Instead of 'a
needle to wear out, a sapphire ball
glides over the records and repro
duces the sound. No needles to buy,
no needles to change, no needle to
wear on the record. The tone is soft
and sweet, and can be regulated as
one may desire. Come to our store
and see and hear the Pathe machine
play. Get our price, which is within
reach of all.
