Learning to do Without.
lt -is really remarkable how most
people are learning to do without
many things that were heretofore,
especially in the past few years, con
sidered imperative necessities. Hav
ing but little cash available and with
practically all of the stores discour
aging credit, certainly long standing
accounts, people have been forced to
curtail their puchases. While it may
prove to be somewhat inconvenient,
this thing of having economy forced
upon us, yet after all it is a fine thing.
Nobody is actually suffering by not
?iaving every want gratified while
they are undergoing this needed dis
cipline. The war-time prosperity made
money plentiful and also made credit
too cheap, but with the turn of the
tide we are all getting some needed
training which will be helpful in the

Let Nothing Prevent.
.If your boy or girl has attained the
college age, do not decide this early
that you will be unable to send him
.or her to college next fall. Conditions
may improve before the opening of
next session, and even if there is no
improvement, let nothing keep your
children out of school or college.
There are not many things The Ad
vertiser would advocate mortgaging
your home for, but we would not hes
itate one minute in the matter of
sending your son or daughter to col
lege. Never mortgage your home to
3xny an automobile, but do jiot hes
itate in mortgaging it to send your
son or daughter to college. It is the
(iest possible investment you can
make for them. After the college age
is passed it is then too late. Say with
all possible emphasis, "Come what
may, my boy or my girl must go to j
vcollege next fall." "

Much of our. worry and trouble is
imaginary. We are always crossing
bridges before we reach them. Early
in the year, it appeared to scores and
hundreds of farmers of this county
that it would be impossible for them
to farm this year. No way seemed
open to them. At every turn they
were face to face with a brick wall.
Up to this time almost the normal
acreage is planted in one crop or an
other. By living one day at a time
people have been able,'in the main,
ito .carry forward their work in a
^reasonably satisfactory manner. Of
/course none of us have any money,
lout we ."have bscome resigned to that.
The fact is, we- do not need so much
. money when we lead a simple life.
None of us are expecting a full or
normal yield this fall, because we did
-not fertilize in the usual way. But to
offset this will be the small expense
-J>ill. What we do make will be ours.
The fact is the Lord is providing
for us in this exigency as He always
-Hoes, and after the period of read
justment passes we shall look back
and see that it all happened for the

}. Negro Overseer Guilty.
,,The Georgia jury which passed up- ,
'on the guilt or innocence of Clyde i
Manning, the human implement with
which the wholesale murderer, J. S.
Williams, accomplished his diabolical
deeds, has adjudged him guilty of
murder "with a recommendation of
m?rcy. This verdict automatically
gives the negro the same sentence
which was given Williams. It is. a re
flection on the jury which tried Wil
liams that he was not speedily exe- .
cuted. Nothing short of swinging at
the end of a good strong hemp rope,
should be the fate of such .a brute.
If he is guilty at all, and who would
dare say he is not, he should have'
paid the extreme penalty of the law.
Manning has probably gotten what
le deserved, but his penalty should
not be as severe as that of William.
By failing to suit Williams' punish
ment to the degree of the crime,
Georgia juries have gotten them
selves into a rather embarrassing
plight by giving Manning the same
punishment as Williams. It is not
that Manning's penalty should be less,
Jbut that Williams' should be mere.
Although at times things seem to
b? drifting from bad to worse in
South Carolina, we do not believe it
is true. South Qarolina will be ? bet
ter State and a better place to live
in a decade hence than it is today.
Leaving- out all other contributing
factors to this future betterment, we
are forced to believe that the rapid
ly increasing number of educated wo
men will put the old commonwealth
on a higher plane. There was a time
in the history'of this country when
it was regarded almost a crime to
educate women, but that day is gone
gorever. 'If the education of either
sex had to be neglected, we would say
educate the women first. There is no
estimating the far reaching effect of
an educated motherhood. As a rule
a mother makes the home atmosphere
and the home atmosphere largely
makes the boys and girls.

Our Schools First:
Nobody is being criticized for it,
but it is generally conceded that for
several years Edgefield has not had
as good public school as the town
should have. Just what has been lack
ing is not easily determined, yet it is
a fact that some other towns of Edge- .
field's size, and even smaller, have
better graded and high schools than
we have. It is probable that they have
more funds available for school pur
poses, but with the funds in hand it
seems that our schools could be made
to do more effective work.
As all of the teachers resigned at
the close of the session just ended,
the trustees have upon them the Her
culean task of re-organizing the
tea ching'force. In this great under
taking, they should receive the co
operation of the patrons of ' the
school. Do not criticize, but rather
sympathize with them in this great
A mass meeting has been called for
Thursday afternoon in the court
house to consider matters pertaining
to the school .Let as many of our
people as possible, both men and wo
men, attend this meeting, giving
first place to our schools.
Summer Session of School of
Singers to be Held in
The charm and atmosphere of
Edgefield, South Carolina, are too
well known by people of this section
to need any further praise, but this
summer it promises to add to its tra
ditions of ante-bellum lore, the in
teresting experiment of being the site
of the summer session for the "School
for Singers" under the personal guS
pervision pf Signora De Fabritiis,
whose artistic and personal success
in the city of Augusta has been of
amazing magnitude, considering the
shortness of the time that this able
musician has been in'the South.
Signora De Fabritiis is one of those
people who combine the "Art of Sing
ing" with the "Art of Teaching."
She feels that to each individual, his
or her voice is their most treasured
possession and in her teaching she
builds painstakingly and with enthu
siasm, not only the vocal instrument,
and the musical side, but lays great
stress on the development of the body
and on the emotional significance of
This teacher, whose reputation
was firmly established in the great
center of culture in the East, for
many years, is a firm believer in the
value of intensive and continuous
study for the voice student. The deli
cacy of the vocal organ renders it
particularly liable to disequilibrium,
and in order to secure the perfect
mascery of the instrument, frequent,
if not daily lessons are necessary.
The students who will be with Sig
nora Dr Fabritiis this summer ses
sion in Edgefield come from different
parts of the South and we hope that
they will find Edgefield an ideal spot
for a summer school and that this
movement started this year may be
come a permanent factor in the edu
cational life of OUT community.
Mr. Quarles' Home Burned.
Wednesday night of last week the
home of Mr. Henry W. Quarles in
the Red Hill section was destroyed
by fire about one ?o'clock. The fam
ily had supper and retired about the
usual hour and were awakened by the
heat or noise of the flarhes about one
o'clock. The fire had made such head
way when discovered that only a few
articles of furniture could be saved.
Mr. Quarles' loss was very heavy as
he had only $700 in insurance. It is
presumed that the fire originated in
the stove room as that portion of the
building burned first. His friends sym
pathize with him deeply in the heavy
loss he has sustained.

Mrs. Catherine Warren DeLoach
has announced the engagement of
her daughter, Miss Ruth DeLoach,
and Mr. Frank II. "ell Huggins. Their
marriage will take place Wednesday,
June 8. While nothing definite has
been generally known, concerning this
approaching marriage, yet the visits
of this young man from the Pee Dee
section to Edgefield, naturally arous
ed interest and speculation, making
their plans which. were so quietly
and secretly laid a subject of conver
sation among their friends. Miss Ruth
DeLoach is universally popular in
Edgefield and the only regret among
her friends in connection with her
marriage is that she will leave Edge
field to make her home permanently
in Manning. Mr. Huggins is not al
together a stranger in Edgefield, hav
ing graudated from the South Caro
lina Co-Educational Institute while
it was located here. Many of our peo
ple remember him very pleasantly.
Death of Mrs. Walter Adams.
. Early Monday morning Mrs. Wal
ter S. Adams passed away at her
home and the announcement caused
much genuine sorrow in Edgefield. It
was while on a mission of mercy Fri
day morning ministering to Mrs. Tay
lor, the wife of Rev. G. W. M. Tay:
lor, that this good woman was strick
en with apoplexy and she never re
gained consciousness. Mr. Taylor
found Mrs. Adams prostrate and un
conscious on the piazza of the par
sonage and she was carried at once,
to her home but a few doors away.
[She received the most loving atten
tion from her devoted husband and
other relatives and friends from the
time she was stricken until the end
came, but no human agency could re
Mrs. Adams was a devout Chris

weary in well doing. She was an ac

from girlhood, always cheerfully do
