Read what he says concerning sea
sonable offerings in every department

Mr. E. B. Holt and Mr. Ory_ Berman
of Greenville to manage this special
.?ale for him. This large double-page
advertisement contains some speeial

Solicitor Callison Coming.
In a letter to Clerk of Court W.
B. Cogburn, Solicitor T. C. Callison
?tates that he will be in Edgefield
Saturday, February 19, for the pur
pose of getting everything in readi
less for the March term of court.
Amy and all witnesses who may desire
;o confer with the solicitor before
;he convening of court should come
io Edgefield Saturday. All magis
;rates should also send all of their
jfficial records to the clerk of court
Dy that date so the solicitor can in
spect them and have everything in
readiness for the March term of
:ourt. Solicitor Callison stated in the
campaign that if elected he would
risit each county seat before the con
vening of court and familiarize him
lelf with the business of the court
so as to conduct it wisely and with
dispatch. We trust that Mr. Callison
will meet with the fullest co-opera
tion in his efforts to conduct the
people's business. It would be well
also for grand jurors to have a con
ference with the solicitor daring this
afficial visit to Edgefield.

Attend Farmers' Meeting. ?
This is a time when the greatest
cooperation is necessary. We might

be hanged separately." We should

Miss Ethel DeLoach Hostess
For Civic League Party.
Miss Ethel DeLoach was hostess at
a most enjoyable progressive conver
cation party Friday afternoon of last
The attarvtive home was fragrant
with masses of spring flowers.
The guests were given a list of
topics: the Library, Civic League,
Our Town, Housekeeping, Gardening,
Flowers, Men, Women, Fruit Cake I
Baked, My First Auto Ride, The Man
I Wouldn't Marry and My Hobby.
"Dates" were then made with each
other for these topics and much mer
riment ensued, as different views on
the subjects were expressed.
After the "dates" were filled a de
licious course of chicken salad on
lettuce heart? pickles, crackers and
ice tea was served.
Post Office Burglarized.
Although Edgefield is something ;
like 100 years old, Monday night was
the first time that expert yeggmen '
have made an "official" visit to this
place. About two o'clock Monday \
night the postoffice was forcibly en- :
tered and the safe dynamited. First 1
the burglars broke into the shop of '
Mr. A. L. Kemp on Jeter Street and
secured a hammer and other tools
which were used in forcing open the 1
door of the post office and wrecking
the safe. The safe contained less than
$100 in cash and about $1,500 in
stamps and other supplies, all of
which was carried away by the bur- ,
glars. It appears that there were
three parties to the crime, two stand
ing guard, on the Opera House cor
ner and the Kemp Grocery store cor- 1
ner on Main street while the third 1
did the devilment inside. There were (
two policemen on duty Monday night, J
Mr. Douglas Leonard and Mr. Eddie 1
Whatley. The regular policeman, Mr. 1
Jack Whatley, was at home with his 1
sick wife and child. At the time the *
first explosion occurred the police- "*
men were warming by the fire in the
club rooms of the American Legion
club. They at once rushed down stairs
to make investigation, and as soon
as they reached the street they were .
fired upon by the two sentinels on
the opposite side of the street. About
eight shots were exchanged between
the officers and the burglars but none j
took effect. As soon as the work of
the man inside the postoffice building
was completed all of them made their j
escape down the street .by the Pres
byterian church, proving themselves
to be expert runners. They left no
clue nor trace that would point to
their identity. The postmaster, Mr.
C. M. Mellichamp, at once notified
the postal inspector of this district.
Later: Responding at once to the
notice of Mr. Mellichamp, the in
spector visited the post office yester
day and after a careful examination
has placed the government's loss at
$2,184.37 as a result of the work of "
the burglars. No clue has yet been 1
fo*nd that would lead to their iden- ]
