Cards containing the following an
nouncement' were received in Edge
Miss Nelle Braxton Jones
Mr. Thomas Lawrence Nicholson
This announcement which has been
the leading topic of conversation in
Edgefield for the past few days was
not altogether a surprise, as Cupid
does not always effectively conceal
his plans. Miss Nelle Jones came
home from Converse college Sunday,
where she has been engaged in spe
cial work since the opening of the
present session, and will remain here
permanently, or at least until her
marriage to Mr. Nicholson early in
The faculty of Converse compli
mented Miss Nelle with an elaborate
announcement party in the parlors
of the college last week and two
other friends in Spartanburg also
gave delightful social functions in
honor of the' bride-elect.
Mr. Nicholson was reared in Craw
fordville, Indiana, and volunteered
for military service early in the
World War. He was on duty about a
year at Camp Hancock and served
a year overseas. Upon receiving his
discharge from the army Mr. Nichol
son located in Chicago where he is
engaged in the brokerage business.
Edgefield friends of the bride-elect
will eagerly look forward to the con
summation of their plans in June and
in advance extend hearty congratu
lations and cordial good wishes.

Street Improvement Needed.
If the county launches upon a mod
ern roads building programme the
towns of Johnston, Trenton and
Edgefield will have to look to the
improvement of the streets. Unless
Edgefield gives more attention to
working the streets, the remote ru
ral districts will have better high
ways than will be found almost under
the shadow of the Court House.
Lumber Business Grows.
The lumber business in and around
Edgefield continues to grow and if it
continues many years there will not
be left a tree for a bird to light in.
However, we are not fighting the
lumber interests. They mean too
much to the prosperity of our people.
Preserve the small trees and they
will provide fuel and lumber suffi
cient for coming generations.
Possible Railway Extension.
It has been intimated to Capt. 0.
P. Bright, the secretary of the Cham
ber of Commerce, that if the people
of Edgefield will make the proper
showing.the officials of the Southern
Railroad will extend the road to
Greenwood, giving Edgefield a north
ern outlet to the world. This is Edge
field's greatest need, now that we
have a modern hotel in sight. Let's
put every shoulder to the enterprise
and possibly we can draw the cork
that has had the old town bottled up
for more than thirty years.
Look at Your Label.
There are some of our subscribers
who have neglected to send in their
renewals and we call attention to the
expiration of their subscriptions so
they can rejnit before our list is revis
ed. The Advertiser will never return
to the old system, as the cash in ad
vance plan has met with the approval
of practically all of our subscribers.
All are treated alike and the paper
will be discontinued if not renewed
upon expiration. Look at your label
and renew at once. Unless you do we
shall be forced to stop the paper.
Don't delay. Act NOW.
Ice Manufacturing Plant.
Mr. W. F. McMurrain has com
pleted his ice plant and turned out
his first block of ice Monday. The
capacity is eight tons for a run of
24 hours. This is a new enterprise for
Edgefield and we trust that it will be
altogether successful. We^ confident
ly behove it will. Mr. McMurrain, the
proprietor, is a capaole, energetic
young man who does not stop short
of success in whatever he under
takes. There should be no dearth of
ice henceforth in Edgefield the year
round. Mr. McMurrain can supply

The April W. C. T. U. will be held
with Mrs. N. M. Jones on April 5,
when Mr. A. B. Carwile has been in
vited to make a talk on the attitude
of the Boy Scout movement towards
the smoking of cigarettes. This ques

discussion at the present time. Kan
