The 1920 census places Georgia's
.negro population at 1,206,365. We
wonder that the colored population of
Georgia is so large, as so many of
them are slain over there for one
cause and another.

Most Deplorable Feature.
Of the many unfortunate things
incident to the general business de
pression that exists over the country
that which is most to be deplored is
. the taking away from many boys and
girls the opportunity of securing an
education. How often have we heard
in the past persons say they grew up
right after the Civil War and were de
prived of an education. Great is the
pity that any shall have to say in the
years to come that they were depriv
ed of an education because of adverse
conditions existing after the great
World War. Parents should see to
it that their, boys and girls be given
an opportunity of securing an educa
tion. If a sacrifice must be made, let
it be made in some other way rather
than that of sacrificing your children
upon the altar of ignorance. They
should not be thus handicapped for
* * * *
Entire Farms Abandoned.
During the past decade, as the boll
weevil approached nearer and nearer
us, Edgefield people have heard of
abandoned farms in weevil stricken
districts. It appears now that the wee
vil, together with the financial strin
. gency, will cause a considerable num
ber of farms to lie idle in this county
this year. This is to be deplored. It
means that somebody has been brok
en up-unable to farm this year. Not
. only will individuals suffer from such
- a condition but as a whole the county
will suffer. The churches and every
- thing of a public nature, as well as
private interests, will suffer. But it
-will not be long before everything
will be adjusted to the new and
^changed conditions. When Europe,
;yet prostrated by the effects of the
..war, : is ..again on her feet, there will
?come a great demand for our raw ma
terial, especially the South's raw ma
terial, and again our Southland will
blossom as the rose. It is not probable
that pny farm lands will lie idle in
this county after 'this year.
Plans For American Legion
Captain George Hains of Augusta
will be the chief speaker for the
American Legion picnic which will be
iheld on the school house grounds on
Friday, April 8th. Captain Hains was
an officer in the Fifth Division and

attorney of Augusta and one of the
most prominent speakers in the city.
He took a leading part in the forma
tion of the Augusta Post of the Amer
ican Legion, one of the largest posts
in the Georgia department. In addi
tion to Captian Kain's address there
will be several two minute talks by
ladies who will stress the aims and
.purposes of the Woman's Auxiliary.
These talks will probably be made by
Mrs. Black of Johnston, representing
* the D. A. R. and Mrs. J. L. Mims

men from the Court House to t
school grounds if it is possible to s
cure a band. The Camp Jackson a
chorities are unable to furnish a ba:

made to raise sufficient funds to ei
ploy a band for the occasion; if'tl
effort succeeds the parade will foi
at the Court House at noon, othe
vvise there will be no parade and t
exercises will start at 12:15 p. m.
the school house grounds.
The. ladies are cooperating wi
the ex-service men and a bountif
dinner is assured. Barbecue hash w

sacks will be provided for the sac
race, but all entries for the three-le^
ged race must provide their ropes fe
tying their legs together. Only e:
service men will enter the contest
Announcement of the picnic wi
be made in all the county churchc
next Sunday and all the school teacl
