V ? Home Again. ]
Edgefield has almost ceased to t
'have sensations, that is we have s
had so many experiences that it has c
become more difficult to stir the j
public, but when any of the former .
boys come home again and show love j
and appreciation for their native
heath, there is commotion. This was ?
the condition of affairs on Monday f.
.and Tuesday in our town when Frank _
"Fair, John Boykin and Sherrard Ken a
nedy came over from their splendid
'.homes in Atlanta, distinguished citi- *
.zens of that great city, in a handsome r
.automobile belonging to Mr. Fair
?and had a good time in our town with
the friends and companions of their s
youth. These sons of Edgefield had I
been planning several years to come
over together and enjoy such an oc
casion, and the dream really came
All the old and middle aged inhab
itants of Edgefield knew these ab
sent boys when they were young and
.even infants. Mr. Kennedy was the
brother of Professor Robert 'Kennedy
-who taught the Edgefield school suc
cessfully about 1889. He was the
'small brother who left here a bare
foot boy Carrying with him memories
-which he returned to enjoy. He said
"he"had -never, before this visit, walk
ed on the Edgefield school grounds
-with shoes on, and he felt like re
averting to the barefoot days. He is
now the cashier of the largest bank
.'in therSouth, the First National Bank
of Atlanta, and highly esteemed for
his integrity, and no one to see him
would believe from his youthful ap
pearance that he is married and has
children almost grown-up.
John Boykin spent all his child
hood days here, and talked about the
first school he ever attended taught
by Miss Mollie Gwaltney, in the of
.'fice -which , stood in the yard of the
home now occupied by Mr. Orlando
Sheppard. Only very small boys were
allowed to attend this school and
girls and young ladies. Rev. W. T.
Hundley taught then in the old
Academy. The Boykin family moved
to Mt. Carmel when he was young,
and from there he went to Atlanta,
studying law and becoming a can
didate for the office of solicitor gen
. eral of Fulton county. He has been
elected two terms, the last time in
' September, receiving the largest
number of votes of any candidate
'for any office in that county in which
Atlanta is situated.
Mr. Fair left Edgefield more re
cently-than the others is still known
and loved as Frank. He went to
school in the Academy too, and says
it is a sacrilege to have torn it down.
He has made good as everyone knew
he would, and has a lovely home
and a wife and dear little girl. Edge
field friends have visited his hos
pitable home in Atlanta and par
taken of his generous hospitality.
On Monday evening Miss Kellah
Fair entertained some friends of
yore in honor of her guests, Miss Vir
ginia Addison and J. L. Addison,
Mrs. P. M. Feltham, Mrs. A. E. Pad
gett, Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman, Mr. and
Mrs. Bettis Cantelou, Mr. and Mrs.
P. P. Blalock, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. W.
L. Nicholson, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Can
telou and Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Minis.
Mrs. P. P. Blalock, Jr., enter
tained them at dinner on Tuesday
and Miss Virginia Addison Tuesday
evening at tea.
Ladies are often the recipients of
such social attentions, but men are
not often so honored.
Edgefield is proud of her sons, and
is glad of their success, and wel
comes them with open arms.
Women go to the Polls.
The women of South Carolina will
have their first opportunity to vote
on November the. second. Don't let
that opportunity go by without cast
ing your ballot. Go to the polls and
vote. Some may say that your vote
will not count this time so there's
no use of your voting. Don't listen,
you are a qualified voter and wheth
er it makes any difference in the
general election count or not you do
your duty. ?
The county chairman of the
League of Women Voters wil lap
point a woman at each voting pre
cinct to be at the boxes with her com
mittee, so that any woman who may
feel a hesitancy in going where there
are only men may know there will be
a committee of women present. Miss
Marie B. Ames in her first lesson on
citizenship has this to say of election
day: On election day the actual pro-'
cess of electing the electors; differs
according to states, bufc tn any event
whatever the method^ the votes do
not elect the president and vice-presi
dent but merely the electors. In the
State of Iowa the names, of the elec
tors appear on the primary ballot but
do nqt appgar 9fl the ballots on glgg-.
tion day, The nsmei of the presiden
tial candidates do, but in voting for
the names, the voters of that state,
simply designate which set of elec
tO'?l w*sn chose.n If a majority
of voters vo*e ^or *ne democratic
candidates then'ill? democratic elec
tors re chosen, or vice versa.- in
other states the names of the electors ]
under the party he?lSig appear and
%re voted for accordingly, while in
still other states the names of both
candidates and electors appear, al
;hough the votes are, of course, given I
mly to the electors.
Thus it will be seen that the party
able to command the greatest num
jer of votes in each state received
he whole electoral vote of that
;tate. In a few instances a state has
livided its electoral vote. Naturally
f the voter wants a democratic pres
dent she will vote for the democrat

equired to have poll tax receipts,
