Grand Double Bill at Edge?eld
The greatest., event in Edgefield
amusements will take place next Fri

double bill. The Joyland Vaudeville

high class artists, offering 5 big acts,
each one of which has been on all the
big time vaudeville circuits in this
country and several have been all
over the world, will give their full
performance that night. Included in
this company is Mme. Zenda, the fa
mous original mindreader, the seer
who knows all, sees all, tells all. If
there is anything troubling you, just
give her your question and she will
answer you. In addition there will be
?pretty girls, mysterious illusions,
singing, and dancing, comedy turns,
comedy juggling, altogether enough
to more than furnish a full evening
performance. BUT with this wonder
ful attraction will be given in full
the great feature 6-reel picture, The
Luck of the Irish. This picture alone
is worth more than the price of ad
mission, which is only 50 cents for
adults and 25 for children and war
tax. Friday night will be the biggest
night in Edgefield, and no one can
afford to miss it.

"I do not ask for a conspicuous part
In this old game of life;
Or crave fame and wealth in my
Ju* contentment will suffice.
But this I crave, that I might bring
The light and joy and happiness
To some poor soul whose heartstring
Is torn and bleeding in distress.
And to cheer somewhere a lonely
By kind word, deed or smile;
Any way I can to help him start
On the road that is worth jyhile.
Help him who is in darkness, lost
As unguided he has trod
The sinful road that leads astray
Back to the path of God.
