church in July of this year, to which
all of the former members, hose
who were members at that time, will

delightful occasion given in Brother

Addison Building Bought for
Edgefield has at last been fortu
nate enough to secure a central and
convenient location and building for
the beginning of a hospital. The Ad
dison building which was recently
purchased from Mr. John L. and Miss
Virginia Addison by Hon. J. Wm.
Thurmond and W. A. Strom, has
been re-sold for ten thousand dollars
to the Directors of the Edgefield Hos
pital Association. We are not as yet
in possession of information in re
gard to the future plans of work.
The location is near the Baptist
church and which Col. Bailey used
for a dormitory for his school sev
eral years. It was the former resi
dence of Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Addison.
Baptist Parsonage Completed.
The beautiful parsonage across the
street from the Baptist church is
completed and Dr. and Mrs. Lee are
now occupying it. Dr. Lee pays it is
the prettiest house in tow nd chal
lenges every one with ?tty one
to come and disprovr statement.
He has invited ev vody to come
and make themseh . at home, so that
it is a sure enough "house hy the
side of "the road," where he can be a
friend to man. There is no doubt
about it either, that there is a charm
in going that way which did not ex
ist a few days ago.
There has always been a rivalry
between the parallel streets leading
to Buncombe and from time imme
morial these . streets have been call
ed respectively, "the back way" and
"the front way." At last, we believe
the back is coming to the front. And
when the hospital is fully installed,
all roads will lead this way, the sick
going to be cured and the well to
carry them sympathy. It is a gay
sight already to see at morning and
noon the troops of children in their
gayly colored caps and sweaters
thronging by going back and forth
