Attention is directed to the article
of Mr. B. R. Tillman in this issue in
which he calls a meeting of the farm
ers of Edgefield county for Saturday,
February 19, in the court house. A
full attendance is desired. Unless
farmers co-operate and pull together
they will find themselves drifting
from bad to worse.

Dr. Lee Called to Chester.
This issue of The*Advertiser cop
ies a dispatch from The State an
nouncing the call of Dr. Lee to Ches
ter at a slaary of $4,000. If Chester
should be so fortunate as to secure
him, they would indeed be blessed.
Edgefield as a community and the

greatly and unanimously that he re
main with us.
He has been great in his undertak
ings and eminently successfulT their
accomplishment, great in his influ
ence and in his preaching and we
would not be willing to part with
Charged With Forging Checks.
Brady L. Holmes, Edgefield coun
ty's colored poet, is in jail charged
with forging checks on banks of
Johnston. About ten days ago he car
ried a bale, of cotton to Johnston, sold
it to one of the local buyers and re
ceived a check therefor in the usual
form of cotton checks .issued by the
buyer on his local bank. Holmes made
a close study of the signature and
forged the name of the cotton buyer
to two checks on one of the banks of
Johnston and received the cash for
them. The original and genuine check
which was given him in payment for
the bale of cotton he brought back
with him to Edgefield and had one of
the banks here to cash it. Upon inves
tigation it was found that similar for
geries had been committeed in 1919
and again in 1920. It is believed by <
some that the other forgeries were ;
committed by Holmes. It is alleged -
that he has handled considerable
money in the past two or three years.
Some of it being spent on a trip to
Baltimore where it is said he took a
course in medicnie. It is probable
that Holmes will have to face the ?
charge of forgery at the Mrach term :
Keep your eyes ,and ears open.
Good times are just ahead.

The exercises at Gilgal church were
somewhat varied Sunday morling,
differing from the usual order of ser
vice by having a marriage ceremony

a position immediately in front of
the pulpit and were united in the holy

left for Mr. Cloninger's home.
Novel Party Given by Mrs. J.
On Thursday afternoon of last
week the series of benefit parties for
the Civic League opened with a very
novel entertainment given by the
president, Mrs. John G. Edwards.
Unique invitations announcing that
"there are paupers a plenty, million
aires a few, but every one has five
senses, come and prove that's true,"
were issued. ,
After the guests assembled, they
were bidden to survey a table in the
hall, on which a number of articles
were arranged. Then they were con7
ducted into the living room, where
Mrs. Mamie N." Tillman played a
medley of old favorite songs. After
this, tiny vials containing a great va
riety of fluids were passed to the
guests to smell, after- which little
Janie Edwards and Esther Ruben
stein carried around a big cretonne
bag with many articles for the guests
Each one wrote down as many
items from memory as possible and
Mrs. Kate Kernaghan and Miss Kath
erine Minis proved that their five
senses were most acute, tying on
their score, Mrs. Kernaghan cutting
successfully for the dainty souvenir.
The nicest test was on that of
taste. A delicio^, fruit salad with
crackers and ice tea was served and
each one was bidden to write down
the fruits used irt the salad.
About four dollars was contributes
ed to "the League fund and will be
used to get books for the library.'

The Augusta papers are full of
the coming of Paul Ryman, a dis

would come to us, but it happ?ns 1
that there are a few open dates just l

the financial pressure and this is
Edgefield's opportunity^ to hear this j
