Pensions Being Paid.
Judge Kinnaird is making scores
of battle-scarred veterans and faith
ful widows of veterans happy by
handing out the pension checks this
week. A list of the pensioners is pub
lished in this issue of The Advertiser.
All those in Class A receive $90 and
those in Class B receive $51.75. Com
ing especially at this season of the
year ,ready cash money is very accep
table and has almost double the pur
chasing power that the same amount
of money had a year ago.
The first crossing of bats between
the home team and a visiting team
occurred Saturday afternoon in a
spirited game between Vaucluse and

the Addison Mills team are very en
thusiastic over baseball and are
throwing themselves into it unreserv
edly. The young men up town have
also organized a team, which will
give both teams better opportunity
for practice. We see no reason why
Edgefield should not have the strong
est baseball team in this section of
the State. Let's stand behind both of
the Edgefield teams and. encourage
them in this manly sport.
New Firm Opens For Business.

Dixie Highway Hotel. This will be a
strong firm. Mr. Berrian has been in
the automobile business for a number
of years, having been connected with
the Yonce & Mooney garage for the
past three years, and Mr. Cheatham
is a skilled and specially trained bat
tery mechanic. They will handle the
Columbia batteries and guarantee
their service to give entire satisfac
tion. They will furnish water and ex
amine your batteries without charge
and if any battery which they send
out fails to give satisfaction, it will
be made satisfactory without further
Practical Illustration of Benefit
If one doubts the thoroughness of
the work of a tractor and the fact
that it can do far more effective work
than with mule, or hourse power, he
should go out to the farm of Mr. J.
R. Cantelou and see the effect of trac
tor plowing on young corn. Some time
ago Messrs. Yonce & Mooney had a
Fordson tractor demonstration on the
farm of Mr. Cantelou, using heavy
plows and harrows behind the trac
tor. Later Mr. Cantelou planted this
land in corn. Where the work of
breaking was done with the tractor
the corn has come up to a good stand
and an the land immediately adjoin
ing, just a furrow or two away, the
corn is up only to a half stand. In
fact, one can stand some distance
away and easily see the difference in
the color of the corn. Thta where the
work was done by the tractor appears
to have been planted a week or ten
days earlier than -the other, and it is
very probable that this difference will
be apparent in the coming months
and at the harvest time. A tractor
does the wo'rk more economically and
more thorough than can be done by
horse and mule power.
For a Severe Cold.
^"Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
cured my daughter, l Anna, of -a se
vere cold and cough a few years ago
and ever since then I have never miss
ed an opportunity to recommend this
medicine to anyone euffering from
throat or lung troubles. I cannot
speak too highly in praise of it,"
writes Mrs. D. J. Shelley, Earlville,
N. Y. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
contains no narcotic and may be giv
en to children with perfect confi
dence. It is a pleasant syrup so they
do not object to taking it.
Just received a nice line of Walk

Chaplain Taylor Resigns From
. Edgefield Post, American
Dear Mr. Editor:' ,
.Please allow me to make a state
ment through your columns with ref
erence to my resignation from the
Chaplaincy and membership of the
Edgefield Post American Legion. I
feel that such a statement is due the
public, the members of the Post who
were not present at the meeting last
night and myself.
The American Legion is an organi
zation composed of ex-service men.
Its object is to perpetuate the mem
ory of the men who fought and died
for the cause so dear to us all and to
promote the true spirit of American
ism and American ideals. It will be
recalled that at a certain public meet
ing held on the public school grounds
a few weeks ago things were in evi
dence, which I need not mention here
that in the judgment of some of us,
brought the Post into a very embar
rassing position. It. seemed to me that
the people who had gathered from
all over the county for the occasion
had been done a grave injustice. I felt
that as the Post was responsible for
the program, that the women and
children who were there in large num
bers had been sinned against.
At our meeting last night an effort
was made to correct this wong in or
der that the Post might be put before
the public in the true spirit of the or
ganization. A statement was mad? at
this meeting which is most shocking.
It was ?aid by one present that.the in
vited speaker brought with him a bot
tle and passed it around before the
ceremonies began and that a past of
ficer and another officer did not hesi
tate to drink of its contents. An in
vited speaker bringing a bottle of
boot-leg liquor to such a meeting
In my own judgment there is very lit
tie difference between the bootlegge
and the fellow.who buys the stuff
Both the man who sells, buys or
drinks bootleg liquor breaks the law,
He lacks that much of being the cit
izen he ought to be. The issue was
clear cut as to whether the Post
would correct itself before the public
and make some kind of amends to our
mothers and sisters and friends pres
ent on that occasion, or whether the
Post would condone such things. By
majority vote it was decided that
nothing could be done and from the
impression ,1 got from this majority
such matters are not to be taken se
riously. Men may violate the law and
drink liquor as'they wish and it is|j
all right. Personally, I wish to dissent
from such action. I am willing to
leave the matter to the judgment of
our people of Edgefield. If the Post
wishes the commendation and respect |-|
of the people of Edgefield, it must
keep a clean house. But under the
present management there is no idea |^
of housecleaning. In fact there is a
spirit of willful gloating over situa-1 j
tions that are embarrassing to others
For these reasons, I felt that my | ]
resignation was in order and accord
ingly tendered the same. . '

Power Farming ?S? Fordson
The Fordson Tractor is taking care of every power iob ; it is taking the drudgery^
out of farm work and solving the labor problem. Power farming with the Ford
son reduces the cost of preparing land to almost one half what it would be with
horses, and saves a third to a half of the farmer's timer What machinery-does for
the factory, the Fordson Tractor is accomplishing on the farm-it is increasing
production at lower costs and making farm life attractive
lons per hour. It will run the electric
light plant, operate the milking machines
and straw baler-will take care of every
kind of. belt work.
The Fordson plows 6 to 8 acres in a
10 hour day, handling two plows with
ease in the average ?soil. It requires an
average of only 1 12 to 2 gallons of
kerosene to the acre.
It is the ideal year-round tractor. It
will pay for its fall and winter keep in
many ways such as road work, hauling
grain to the elevator, pumping water
and moving granaries.
Apply this power farming idea in pull
ing your binder. More and more farm
ers are making themselves independent
of unfavorable conditions by using the
Fordson tractor linked up with a light
thresher. By seizing the right moment
and being able to do the job without
waiting and in quick time, crop losses
are avoided and profits increased.
The Fordson operates with kerosene.
When used on belt work, running at
full power at 1,000 R. P. M., the fuel
consumption does not exceed 2 3 4 gal

Tourists Coming This Way.
The Dixie Highw.-iy is bringing
;ourists by Edgefield i nd it i's expect
ed that the number ?? (rill steadily in
crease. Mr. Vause recently had two
luto parties stop with him, one of
;hem being composed of Mr. and Mrs.
ailbert Parent and son of Walker
rille, Ontario, and Miss Van Wormer
)f Grand Rapids, Mich. Their bill
vas $18 which shows what this main
;horoughfare means to the success '
)f the hotel. Then, in these times of
noney stringency it means something
;o have some cold Canadian cash left
fi Edgefield. Another party was com
posed of Mr. and Mrs. John Goltra I
)f Westfield. N. J. Mr. and Mrs.
Latch and Mrs. Latch's parents, Mr.
md Mrs. Hudson of Ohio, auto tour
sts, camped near the home* of Mr.
31yde Jackson Friday night. All of
;he tourists spend some money along
;he way, and nothing should be left
mdone that will encourage their
:?ming by Edgefield from Florida,
furthermore, it is a good advertise
nent and may lead to northern and
lorthwestern settlers purchasing
ands and locating in the county.

mise to many friends of the bride
