odist church observed last week as a
time of prayer for the various en
terprises for which their church is

eral occasions, and enjoyed an hour
of comradeship with the good women
of the Methodist church.
The New Overland Car.
Attention is directed to the attrac
tive advertisement of the Overland
4 car on our second page. It was put
to the severe test over 250,000 miles
of mountain roads and every part of
the car met the heavy demand upon
it. Ask for a demonstration of the
popular Overland 4. Either Mr. J. P.
Bland of the Consolidated Auto Com
pany of Johnston or Mr. J. D. Hol
stein, Jr., of Edgefield, will be pleas
ed to explain the many advantages
of the new car to you. They are al
ready selling in Edgefield county as
rapidly as they can be received by
the dealers above named.
Woman Seriously Injured.
Early this morning a negro wo
man, Annie Carter, was struck by
the trailer of the county truck near
the station and seriously injured.
- "She" crossed ?he street in front of the
truck and turned to speak to one of
the convicts on the truck and was
struck and knocked down by the
wheel of the trailer. The truck which
was loaded with steel for the Stevens
Creek bridge was being driven by
Mr. James Burnett but absolutely no
blame attaches to him. By not taking
heed of the dangerous position she
was in, the woman contributed to her
own injury. It is probable that she
.will die of the injuries. The accident
is greatly deplored.
Our popular young merchant on
the corner has brought a beautiful
bride to grace the handsome Reel
mansion. Sunday afternoon Mr. W.
Albert Reel motored to the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Moultrie, as
has been his wont foi some time,
.and taking the second daughter of
the home, Miss Carrie Moultrie, in
his car they hied away to Rose Cot
tage at Red Hill, the home of Rev.
J. W. Kesterson, who united them in
holy wedlock. This step was some
what of a surprise to our people.
While they knew that Cupid had
?onie " unexpressed plans concerning
the lives of these two young people,
yet no one knew tl at their love affair
would be consummated so early.
Edgefield extnds a cordial welcome
to Mrs. W. A. Reel, who already had
a number of friends here.
No doubt nil of our boys who were
in the naval and military service
were eager to return home, some for
one reason and some for another.
But the host of friends of Mr. Fred
Hamilton can now understand why
he eagerly and anxiously awaited the
day of his discharge. Sunday after
noon he and Miss Ruby Watson, the
youngest daughter of Mrs. Ida Wat
son of the Pleasant Lane section,
motored to Augusta and were mar
ried at the home of Rev. Z. F. Bond,
pastor of the Second Baptist church.
On their journey of unalloyed bliss
these two widely beloved young peo
ple were accompanied by Sloan Wat
son, B. E. Timmerman, Dixon Tim
merman, Clyde Hamilton, Miss Ida
Timmerman and Miss Lallie Hamil
ton. This was the second surprise
marriage to take place last Sunday,
Mr. Hamilton's friends knowing noth
ing of his plans in,advance. Mr. Ham
iltdn has leased the home of Mrs.
Emma Marsh on Jeter Street where
he and his beautiful young bride will
in a short time be at home to their
False Rumor Corrected.
The impression is out that we are

Only a Cold.
Are you ill? is often answered
"Oh! it's only a cold," as if a cold
was a matter of little consequence,
but people are beginning to learn
that a common cold it a matter not
to be trifled with, that some of the
most serious diseases start with a
cold. As soon as the first indication
of a cold appears take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. Remember that the
sooner you get rid of your cold the
less the danger, and this remedy will
help you to throw it off.
All persons are hereby forbidden
to hunt, fish or trespass in any man
ner whatsoever on my lands. All who
fail to heed this notice will be pros
ecuted under the law.
