At the close of this Mrs. Mims read
the two town ordinances on Sunday
closing and the liquor violations, and
the fact was emphasized that the
Sheriff, Mayor and Council are on
oath to enforce these laws, and that
the Mayor has stated that he will
not enforce the Sunday closing law,
although it is an ordinance of the
Town Council. On motion of Mrs. T.
H. Rainsford, seconded by Mrs. W.
L. Dunovant, and passed unanimous
ly by the women, the Edgefield W.
C. T. U. c- 'ed upon the Sheriff and
the May:,, 'nd Council to enforce

This is why women have been striv
ing for the ballot that their opinions
might be counted when it came to
a question of making the streets safe
for their children io walk in. Glad
stone said that the purpose of law
was to make il; as easy as possible
for people to do right and hard for
them to do wrong. This is what we
want the laws of our town and coun
ty to do for our children. We do not
want it to be easy for our boys to go
into places on Sunday where they
may buy cigarettes and cold drinks.
Why have not the fathers of Edge
field made the streets of our town
safe for our boys as the mothers have
tried to make our homes safe for1
them? We call for their loyalty.

Election Carried Unanimously.
The corner of Edgefield county
down near the river voted itself into
McCormick county in the election
yesterday. Three men and nine ladies
voted in the affirmative and not a bal
lot was cast in the negative. We al
so understand that the portion of "Mc
cormick county east of Turkey Creek
voted itself back into Edgefield coun
ty with only one dissenting vote. It
is better for the people involved and
for both counties that this exchange
of territory was made. We regret,
however, to see the good citizens
down near the river leave the old
mother county. They will make Mc
Cormick good citizens. On the other
hand we welcome back to us the por
tion that has been in McCormick for
the past few years.
