Mr. W. P. Gordon's business as
public cotton grader is picking up as
activity increases in business circles.
He went to Trenton yesterday and
graded 163 bales of cotton and has
orders to grade several hundred more
bales. Those Trenton farmers are
wise and know the advantage of hav
ing their cotton graded.
The new system of working the
roads adopted by Supervisor Ed
munds seems to prove satisfactory.
He appoints overseers and they no
tify all persons who prefer working
on the roads to paying the road tax
report for duty on a certain day. Mr.
L. Y. Bryan has recently worked thc
road from the town limits to his home
by way of the Gary place.
You can form some estimate of a
school teacher by their interest in
the County Teachers' Association. An
alert, active teacher who is eager for
new ideas and new methods is always
glad of an opportunity to meet with
other teachers for an exchange of
ideas and methods. The indifferent
teacher is generally in thc teaching
profession for the salary and nothing

AH Teachers and Trustees
On account of the very unfavor
able weather, it was decided last
Thursday that it would be the part of
wisdom to postpone the holding of
the teachers' meeting and the lun
cheon to the teachers one week, until
Saturday, February 5. At that time
the trees were breaking down with
ice and the roads were in a dread
ful condition. Some of the teachers
did not receive the notice of post
ponement and came Saturday last,
the day at first selected. Those who
came then and all other teachers and
school trustees in the county are in
vited and urged to attend the meet
ing of the teachers and the luncheon
by the members of the W. C. T. U.
next Saturday, February 5. We be
lieve the day will bc both pleasant
ami profitable to all who come. Im
mediately after the adjournment of
the teachers' meeting thc ladies of
the Woman's Christian Tmperance
Union will serve a luncheon in the
dining room of the hiprh schood build

J. W. STEWART,
! Teachers' Association Next
It was genuinely regretted that
there should have been a condition
last week which interfered with the
meeting of the Edgefield County
Teachers' Association. The snow and
the rains made it impossible for a
full meeting of the teachers to be
held especially those from the rural
districts. This is to renew the invi
tation for the coming Saturday, when
the Woman's Christian Temperance
Union will serve a luncheon to all
those who come and hope by the de
lay to have a better dinner than they
could have had last Saturday. There
will be no postponement this time. If
roads are impassable make your plans
to come by air plane or by rail, or
come the first fair day and stay over.
The luncheon will be served to all
who come whether it be a hundred or
ten. Come and be one of the hundred.

Item of Interest Omitted From
Sunday morning coming from the
Presbyterian church, a lady accom
panying the writer said "You did
not mention in The Advertiser any
thing about the dinner at the Tim
mcrman-Williams wedding. Why was
that?" The reply was that it was.
written because the delinquent scribe
remembered distinctly the process of
thought gone through in planning
what was to be written. "No,"- said
the lady, "not a word appeared about
the dinner." Such an oversight could
not be neglected, so the continued
account of a most delightful occasion
is herewith added.
There is one rule of etiquette
which is continually broken and that
is the one which forbids the asking
uf what the hostess had to eat. It is
a very foolish rule too, for what's thc
harm in wanting to know what your ;
friends had to eat at a dinner or j
party? At any rate the newspapers j
know the people want to hear, or they i
wouldn't be publishing it for% their j
benefit. It isn't just idle curiosity j
either, it is genuine interest, and '
a desire to know, that they may see j
if they themselves can follow suit on j
some succeeding occasion.
At least a half dozen people had
asked this question and it was with j
genuine pride anti, pleasure that the i
request was granted by those *vho
were privileged to be a guest on this
happy occasion. Perhaps this is the
reason it was not in the paper. Some
times*a friend says "Why did you
not tell me that bit of news before?" j
and the answer is, "Oh, I thought I j
had told you," when the fact it was I
to another that the news was told.
Immediately after the beautiful
marriage ceremony had taken place,
by which time it was near thc noon
hour, friends began to enter with
the refreshments, a bountiful and
well selected menu for the noontide,
consisting of chicken salad, turkey,
cranberries, crackers, pickle and
several varieties of delightful sand
wiches, passed more than once.
When the first course had been
finished hot coffee and whipped cream
with fruit and pound cake were
served, followed by mints^vhich have
become an indispensable accompani
ment or ending to a wedding feast.
. It was a most appropriate and
bountiful dinner for the noon hour
and enjoyed by all the large number

It's a star that leads from strife.
It's sunshine on a chilly morn,

Clouds of gloom and poverty.
Kindness brings a rich reward, too,
When it's freely given;
For it will return and bring back
