Davis Realty Company.
Mr. M. W. Shive, the manager of
the Edgefield office of the Davis
Realty Company has a full page of
valuable property advertised for
sale in this issue. Now is a good time
to purchase real estate. Crops are
very promising and there will be
considerable surplus money this fall.
Young men who are casting about
for a home or a new location should
look carefully over the fine farms
which Mr. Shive is offering. Better
make a selection before the choicest
farms are taken. Edgefield property,
as a rule, is not listed long. It soon
changes hands when put on the mar
ket. If you are not looking for a
home, you can find a number of
farms among Mr. Shive's offerings
that will make a safe and profitable
investment. It will not be a difficult
matter to realize a few thousand
dollars profit on an investment of
real estate made' now.

red hot coals and sending up a flavor

pany, whose officers are W. A. Col
lett, president and treasurer; W. A.
Strom, vice-president and secretary,
will soon open two stores in the new
hotel building occupying the one

company, is $20,000. Major stated to
The Advertiser's representative that
the grocery store' will be opened for
business on September 1, and that

The gentlemen who have invested
their money in this enterprise are
energetic and progressive and will
not stop short of establishing two
large and very successful stores.
The business is in reach of Edgefield..
possibly some has been going to oth
er markets that should come here,
and they will go after it. The Adver
tiser wishes these two establishments
every possible success.
