To The Farmers of Edgefield
For the convenience of farmers
who desire to have their cotton
graded, I wish to say that I will go
out in the country where as many as
50 bales or more can be bunched to
gether, I do not mean that any one
man must have 50 bales but if a few
farmers in a place will get their cot
ton lined up at their respective
homes I can grade it all on one trip,
to that neighborhood.
My duties while here in Edgefield
are to grade cotton and inform far
mers of the value of cotton before
sale, and I am sure every progressive
farmer desires to know what he has
to offer before selling. Now ihat the
price of cotton is far below the cost
of production, and the difference in
price for the various grades are
wide it is absolutely necessary that
you have it gi-aded.
I am now receiving some cotton
below middling, and when a grade
drops below this point the differ
ences are wider than if it graded
above middling, for instance on Au
gusta market this week St. Low Mid
dling is quoted one and one-half cent
off middling; Low Middling four
cents off middling.

People in Aiken Talk of Whip
Aiken, Oct. 23.-Reports of the
whipping of Peter McMahon of Yon
kers, N. Y., has been discussed free
ly in Aiken since widespread publi
cation. No one, however, can be
found who professes to have any
knowledge of the affair.
A search of the records at the
Aiken county court hour 3, shows that
prior to this summer the daughter
in question had the custody of her
father, who is aged and infirm, in
New York city, Atlantic city and
other places and that the court de
termined that his daughter's mental
condition was such that she was not
a fit custodian for her father, she
having suffered from various mental
troubles, and having been the inmate
of several sanatoriums.
The legal custody of the father
was then vested for the balance of
his life in his two sons-in-law, and
he is now in Aiken living at the home
of his married daughters.
The court records further show
that with his consent and the writ
ten consent of the daughter the
property of the father was divided,
under the supervision of the court,
and with its approval, and that the
daughter in question, because she
was unmarried, was allowed $20,
000 more than the other two daugh
ters. Her share under the division
amounted to $50,000, while the two
married daughters who assumed the
care of their invalid father, for the
balance of his life, and gave heavy
bond for his proper support, received
but $30,000 each.
In this court proceeding the daugh
ter in question was represented by
reputable attorneys of Columbia, and
she consented, in writing, to every
step taken by the court. She has re
cently had the proceedings examined
by her counsel, who advised her
that they were regular in every re
spect, and that she had been most
bountifully provided for.
Financial Loss Due to Colds.
It is estimated that the average
man loses three days time each year
from inability to work on account of
having a cold. Much of this loss can
be avoided by treating every cold as
son as the first symptoms of the dis
ease appear. Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy has won a wide reputation
and immense sale by its cures of this
disease. Try it. You are certain to be
pleased with its pleasant taste and
the prompt relief which it affords.
