wives of drinking men, if we would

and rid Edgefield county of all mak

done. The proper place for the men
who make and sell the stuff is on the
chaingang' or behind the bars. You
men who have boys, your boy is not
safe as^ long as whiskey is made in
your community, and the automobile,
which practically eliminates distance,
puts the still miles away almost at
your very door. Your boy may be
tempted to speed away to a still al

edge of his whereabouts. Our young
men are not safe as long as the stuff
is made in ]Sdgefield county. Let's

"The public schools all .over the
State are. disintegrating with the
close of the present session and must
be re-organized or organized all over
again, by employing new teachers.
This big thankless job is on the
shoulders of the school trustees who
almost without exception are men
who will give the best that is in them
to the performance of this great task.
Employing school superintendents
:and teachers, especially when the
.funds are limited, is a great under
taking, one greater than most people
realize. In the performance of the
task that lies before them, trustees
meed sympathy of the parents rather
than .tieir criticism. You may think
that trustees make an unwise choice
in filling school vacancies, forgetting
that were you in the place of the trus
tee possibly you would not do as well.
Sympathize with :them rather than
criticize school trustees.

An event that will occasion no lit

in Charlotte was the marriage of Mr.
Jos. S. Sease to Miss Mary Griffis, of
Edgefield, S. C. ,which occurred Sun

With even his best friends ignorant
of his motive, Saturday morning Mr.
Sease left to go on his vacation with,
presumably harmless intentions.
Spending the night in Edgefield, next
morning he went with an automobile
party consisting of the immediate
family, to the Methodist church and
after the services requested the
preacher to perform the ceremony.
