Labor Saving Machnies.
Tractors, like trucks and automo
biles, have come to stay, having pass
ed the experimental stage. Owing to
the acute labor situation, which will
probably never be better, it behooves
farmers to adopt every labor saving
machine possible, especially when
such machines do the work so much
i better thaR where more man power
is used. Gasoline power is more ef
fective on the farm than man power
and mule power where gasoline can
be used. Tractors plow deep, pull har
rows to pulverize and can cover a
large area in a day. If you have not
purchased a Fordson tractor, one
that is within the reach of small farr
mers, you should confer with Yonce
& Mooney or H. G. Eidson at once
about one. Owing to congested
freight conditions they are hard to
Campaign Meeting Thursday.
The second county campaign
meeting was held last Thursday at
Cooper school house, Mr. John P.
Mealing acting as chairman. The
candidates for solicitor were not
present, attending a large meeting
in Saluda county that day. The can
didates for th? senate and^house
spoke along about the same lines,
with some slight variation, that were
Reported last week at the Johnston
meeting. As the speaking began late
it ran far into the dinner hour and
everybody went from the school
house to the long table where a
princely barbecue dinner was served
in limitless quantities-meats, hash,
tomatoes,, pickle, corn, bread, etc.
The day was very pleasantly ' spent,
the social feature in the afternoon
being enjoyed by all present, as the
afternoon was not marred by any
speeches. The people these hot days,
as a rule, do not want to hear pub
lic speaking. And who can blame .
them?' The next county meeting will
be held at Antioch church tomorrow, j
Death of Mr. T. M. Tllover.
Wednesday night, July 28, Mr. T.
M. Glover died at his home in the
Meriwether section. While he had
been, in feeble health for some time,
his death was unexpected and a
great shock to his friends and loved
ones. During the afternoon before
his death he visited in the commu
inity but became very weak on re
turning home. Within an hour after
complaining of feeling very unwell
he passed away without pain or
struggle. The immediate cause of his
death must have been heart failure,
as he had suffered from heart trou
ble for a year or more. Mr. Glover
was not a Confederate veteran, be
ing too young to don the uniform in
the sixties, but no citizen in Edge
field county ever rendered more loy
al service than he in 1876, a time
when every red-blooded man was
needed at the front in the fight for
white supremacy and honest gov
ernment. Mr. Glover was in his 70th
year, being the last of the older gen
eration of a .prominent and honored
old Edgefield family. He leaves his
devoted wife who, before their mar
riage was Miss Ida Scott. They had
no children. The funeral was con
ducted at Sweetwater church Thurs
W. C. T. U. Meeting.
The August meeting of the W. C.
T. U. took place on Monday after
noon with Mrs. Walter L. Nicholson
at her lovely home just in the su
burbs of Edgefield. It was a pleasure
to welcome several visitors from
other places, among them being Mr.
and Mrs. J. D. Mathis , Miss Susan
Mathis of Trenton and their guests,
Mrs. Mattie Jennings, formerly Miss
Jordan, who attended school in Edge
field as a girl and Mrs. Jordan of
Lake City, Florida, Mrs. Felix Tim
merman, Miss Timmerman, Mrs.
Watson Timmerman and Mrs Susie
Mrs. E. J. Norris conducted the
devotions and the victrola furnished
several sacred selections.
Mrs. Mims gave a statement of
the meaning of the Volstead act
which was to make the enforcement
of the prohibition law more rigid
and more effective. Mr. Volstead
stood out against the wine and beer
amendment, as has also each state
which has submitted this amendment
to the people, by a larger majority
than when the original prohibition
bill had been passed. Women are en
joined everywhere to watch keenly
any statement on the part of the pol
iticians which will indicate their in
tention of modifying the prohibition
laws. The question was asked by one
of the women present if one of the
senatorial candidates did not express
himself as opposed to the Volstead
act, and Mr. Warren's statement was
called to the attention of the meet
ng at Edgefield in which he made
an appeal for the exercise of states'
rights in being able to serve and
