A Remarkable Record.
Mr. T. C. Mathis of the Collier sec
tion commenced farming on his own
account when he was 26 years of age,
and now he is 66 years. He has farm
ed continuously during that time and
has owned only two horses, which
shows what good treatment will do
for stock. It pays in -dollars and cents
to take care of livestock. Mr. Mathis
kept the first horse he bought 24
years and then traded it for another
?. and this faithful animal died last
k, after having been owned by
Mr. Mathis 16 years. Not many per
sons who have farmed for forty
years have such -a record for the
keeping and treatment of the faith
ful beasts of burden.
Cotton Seed Selling Too Low.
We do not understand why cotton
seed are selling below a dollar a
bushel. It appears to us that farmers
are not getting a "square deal," to
usi a pet phrase of Col. Roosevelt.
If the number of bales of cotton are
short, certainly the number of bush
els or tons of seed will be short in
the saine proportion. And yet cotton
seed are selling for about one-third
less than they should. If farmers
were organized, as they are trying
to do, this situation, we believe,
could be impn ved. Cotton seed are
selling for as much at Edgefield as
anywhere else, but they are too low
j Buildings at Fair Grounds Sold
Pursuant to an announcement
which has appeared in The Adverti
ser, the buildings and improvements
on the fair grounds were sold Mon-:
day at public outcry, Sheriff W. R.
Swearingen acting as auctioneer and
he did it as well as a veteran in the
business. Each building was sold*
separately, the aggregate sale^
amounting to $1,245.75, which will
leave a small balance in the treasury*
after the indebtedness of the Fair
Association has been paid. The first
large building as you approach the
fair grounds was purchased by Mr.
A. L. Kemp for a little less than
$400, and the second building, in
which Mr. B. L. Mims stored his fer
tilizers last season was purchased by
him for $410. As a whole the prop
erty sold well.
U. D. C. Entertainment.
On next Thursday, October 16th,
there will be an entertainment given
at the home of Mrs. B. B. Jones, un
der the auspices of the Edgefield
chapter U. D. C. Some years ago
the chapter undertook to place a
small, Confederate marker at the
grave of each Confederate soldier
and about sevc. ty-five were placed.
Now there are more needed and we
also want to spread out into the
county and mark the graves of men
buried in the country grave yards.
This entertainment is to be one of a
series to raise a fund for this pur
pose. Mrs. Jones is planning a de
lightful program and refreshments
will be served. Admission will be 25
and 15 cents.

The drive for raising Edgefield
county's quota of the State Memo
rial Fund for the erection of a Me
morial Building at State Capital in
honor of the men and women who
serv?d in the recent World War has
begun, and I now make an earnest
appeal to each and every member of
the various committees appointed to
aid in this work, and whose names
have been set forth in the county pa
pers for several issues thereof, to
help me in obtaining subscriptions
to this cause. I shall appreciate your
co-operation and assistance.
The question with us is-Shall we
permit History to denominate our
county as a DELINQUENT in the
final discharge of its duty to its sons
and daughters who contributed their
services and lives to the VICTORY
which we now enjoy? We have never
been so dnominated, shall we now?
Pride dictates to the contrary.
