New Warehouse Completed.
The splendid new warehous?
which has just been completed by
Mr. B. B. Jones and the broad new
sidewalk in front adds greatly to old
Edgefield. It is just such modern
improvements as this that are mak
ing the old town new. Mr. B. B.
Jones always builds well when he

building operation in contemplation.
Good Crop Prospect.
Everywhere one goes in the coun
ty the crops are fine, very fine. Usual
ly they are "spotted," a good crop in
one section or on the farm and else
where, even in a near by community,
the crops are poor. Not so this year.
On thin land and on strong land the
prospect of a large harvest is good.
Of course a full crop is far, very far,
from being made. One can never tell
what cotton will do in the end. A
fine prospect can go all to pieces in
less than a week. Nevertheless, there
is cause now for ,great rejoicing.
