attractive advertisements this paper

point but also attractive because it
carries the announcement of great j
bargains in seasonable merchandise.

est store, is offering some very low
prices in stylish wearing apparel for
women, men and boys. They bought
largely before the decline in the
price of cotton and in order to meet
their bills that are falling due The
Economy Store will make heavy sac
rifices. The Economy Store is located'
in the new hotel building next door
west of the store1 of Stewart & Ker

Death of Mr. C. M. Wates.
Edgefield was deeply saddened
when the announcement of the sud
den death of Mr. Charlie Wates was
received here. He had not been
strong since he had influenza last
winter, followed by pneumonia, his
health having failed greatly in the
past two months. He was up and
about the house last Sunday but re
marked to his wife about three
o'clock in the afternoon that he
would lie down for a short time.
Soon afterwards Mrs. Wates entered
the room and found her husband
Mr. Wates was born and' reared in
Edgefield county, where his ances
tors have lived for many generations.
He was 31 years of age and was the
only son of the lamented Mr. and
Mrs. P. R. Wates. About five years
ago Mr. Wates^ embarked in the
wholesale grocery business in Au
gusta and had been very successful,
residing at 925 Broad Street. About
a year ago he united with the First
Christian church of Augusta, the
pastor, Dr. Wilson, conducting the
funeral in the Baptist church here
Tuesday morning. Mr. Wates had
many splendid qualities and because
of his generosity of spirit and genial
disposition he was beloved wherever
he was known. About four years
ago he married Miss Alice Atkinson
of the Republican section of this*
county, by whom he is survived. They
had no children. Mr. Wates is also
survived by three sisters, Mrs. G. W.
Bussev. of Modoc: Mrs. J. M. Brad
ley of McCormick, and Mrs. J. H.
Ramsey of Springfield. The inter
ment took place in the family square
in the Edgefield cemetery Tuesday

into the parlor where an array of1
gifts without cards were to be seen,
a chest of silver from the bride's
family, cut glass and handsome china
and many miscellaneous articles of
value and taste. As the music began,
with Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman at the
piano, the door of the opposite room
was opened, and a scene of loveliness)
greeted the eyes, a room made all
white and green with an improvised
altar in white chrysanthemums, be
hind which glowed many candles.
As the door opened, three dear j

Golden Wedding Celebration.
Monday, October 11th was an oc
casion of much joy and happiness in
the hospitable home of Dr. and Ben,
Adams of Plum Branch.
This beautiful sun shiny day seem
ed typical of the married life of Mr.
and Mrs. J. B. Adams, Sr., which was

The friends and relatives gathered
from far and near, Edgefield, Mc
Cormick and some from Greenville,
from eleven till one-thirty.
The hall and parlor were tastefully
decorated in smilax and golden rod.
Mrs. Adams was Miss Hettie Mims,
daughter of Capt. Ben Mims, much
beloved in his day. This bride and
r"om of fifty years were the recip
ient of many useful and various
presents, which shall be mementoes
of their kindred and friends through
out their remaining years.
This lovable woman and kind
hearted man, we believe, felt as
young and happy as on their wed
ding day, mingling with their friends
and expressing what joy it was to
have them there.
After seeing and talking with
those whom we had not seen for
quite a while, Mendelssohn's Wed
ding March was played by Miss Hel
en Dorn from Edgefield and a great
niece of the "bride," the crowd
marched out to the bountifully
spread table under the shade trees
by the side piazza, then you must
find your plate with your own name
written on a golden heart in it, then
