fountains similar to ones in use on '

many schools in South Carolina. A ^

tary purpose but ls not ornamental. ?

House Burned Saturday Night.
The Weir place on the road leading
west of Edgefield was destroyed by
fire Saturday night. It was owned by
Mr. S. E. Morgan and was occupied
by one of his tenants. The fire occur
red about 10:30 o'clock and the origin
is unknown. The fire fighters respond
ed to the call but as the building was
situated on the edge of town, a con
siderable distance from the terminus
of the water .main, it was impossible
to save the building. The fire was too
far advanced to be extinguished by
chemicals. As Mr. Morgan carried,
some insurance on the property, it,
was not a total loss.
The Floral Fair.
The announcement made a short
time ago that the ladies of the Civic
League contemplate holding a floral
fair next fall should meet with hearty
approval and a general response from
the flower growers of Edgefield and
vicinity. Not only will such an under
taking contribute to the success of
the work of the League but the cul
tural value of growing and exhibiting
flowers will make it worth all it costs
in time and effort. Begin at once to
plan for an exhibit at the floral fair
next fall. Planting time is now on and
if you neglect to plant flowers you
will have none to exhibit. Plant a va
riety and urge your next door neigh
bor to do likewise.
Fordson Tractor Demonstra
Messrs Yonce & Mooney held a
demonstration of Fordson tractors,
plows, harrows and other implements
on the farm of Mr. W, M. Rowland
near Meriwether station yesterday.
Through such demonstrations, show
ing not only how the machines do the
work but how well they do it, farmers
can not be other than convinced of
the wisdom of purchasing such mod
ern ,labor-saving machinery. There
are other progressive farmers besides
Mr. Rowland in the Meriwether com
munity and Messrs. Yonce & Mooney
should be able to place Fordson trac
tors on sevei'al farms. Changed agri
cultural conditions makes a change
in implements necessary. The old way
of doing things no longer brings sat
isfactory and profitable results.

Arrested in North Carolina. }
Friday Sheriff Swearingen went to ^
Henderson, N. C., for Chamberlain
Martin for whom a warrant had been
issued for disposing of property un- 3
der mortgage. Being unable to meet ^
his obligations and unwilling to face
criminal indictment Chamberlain left 1
for parts unknown several months
ago, believing probably that he could
elude his ci-editors and evade the law. 1
But. Chamberlain failed in his plans. <
Mr. Talton Prince who is in the em
ployment of the contractors 'who
bored the deep wells for the Edgefield
water system saw Chamberlain in s
Henderson and reported it to the au- c
thorities in Edgefield, which resulted (
in his subsequent arrest. Sheriff c
Swearingen' arrived with him Satur- c
day night and placed him in jail, t
Chamberlain's father has satisfied all ]
outstanding debts and the charges c
have been withdrawn. Honesty is al
ways the best policy. Just as surely
as your sins will find you out, so sure
ly will your.creditors find you, it mat
ters not where you may go.
FOR SALE: Com, fodder, meat

THE UN I VERS AL CAR
. During all the years the Ford Model T One Ton Truck has been on the mar
ket, we have never had one complaint of rear axle trouble. We have had no
complaints of motor trouble. As the motor and the rear axle are the vital funda
mentals in a motor truck, we have the right to conclude that the Ford One Ton
Truck has not only met the demands of business, but has done so in a satisfactory
and econo: Ac way. There is no other evidence so convincing as that which
comes from .jng practical experience. Ford One Ton Trucks are serving along;
all industrial and commercial lines. You will find them everywhere. If these
statements were not facts, the demand for the Ford One Ton Truck would not
be as large as it is, because people are not buying trucks which do not give
service. Coupled with the dependability of the Ford One Ton Truck in all classes
of usage, comes the economy in operation and maintenance. On the farm, in
factory delivery, for the merchant, manufacturer, and contractor, in these days
of modern business methods, this worm-driven One Ton Ford Truck has become
an actual necessity. Come in and talk it over.
