and gladness wherever she goes.

Mr. Crouch's Home Burned.
About seven o'clock this morning
the residence of Mr. Guy Crouch in
south Edgefield was found to be on
fire. Mr. Abney Parks discovered the
fire and gave the alarm. It seems to
have caught in the ceiling of the
Tcitchen. The alarm was not given in
time fer the fire company to save
the b?liding, as it had been burning
probably half an hour before the fire
engine reached the place. However,
the eight members of the fire com
pany who were first on the scene
turned two streams on the flame in
a few minutes after arriving and ex
tinguished them before the building
was totally burned. The origin of the
fire is not known. Practically all of
the furniture was removed from the
building but it was considerably
damaged.. Mr. Crouch had insurance
to the amount of $2,000 on the build
ing and $500 on the furniture.

me at Trenton.
Last year, 1920, South Carolina

The Porto Rico potato is our hobby. One man near here raised one

potatoes on record. Is fine for table or market. Good to eat when
