he is routing all north-bound tourists
Over the Dixie Highway by way of
Edgefield. This means a great deal
for Edgefield. Many of the tourists
will stop here for a short rest if not
for the night. Just a few days ago a
party in a large touring car spent
over $75 in Edgefield, which- means
that that amount of outside money
from an entirely unexpected source
was brought to Edgefield. Let noth
ing be left undone that will attract
tourists this way. It will be a great
advertisement for our new hotel and
for the town. By all means we should
keep the main thoroughfare which
traverses the county in the best pos
sible condition. The Edgefield Cham

placed along the roads at all public
places and at all crossings, making it

How she petted me, called me her lit
Whenever I was sick or would cry.
And she'd sing to me those quaint
In the way her race alone can sing.
And when I hear them sung now my
' heart longs
To receive again her sweet blessing.
God made her with an outward dark
The reason why I do not know,
But underneath it her breast within
Beat a heart as white as snow.
.Of all people of earth there is no
Look for them whereever you may,
' That will measure up to the negro in
With his happy good natured way.
Patient, forbearing, they hold no
Against those who would oppress,
Welcoming all to drink from their
A friend to those in distress.
All they ask is justice, contentment,
And he judged by what in them is
No social equality is asked, just pre
And a chance to live, labor and rest.
If some have changed in character

Who should blush with shame?
He didn't do it, so it does not fol
That he should bear the blame.
