them in aiding in the agricultural de
velopment of the county. They ask
the co-operation of the farmers in
this very worthy undertaking.
Popular Summer Resorts.
The waters of Salter's and Smith's
ponds seem to possess unusual charm
for th? people of Edgefield, young
and old. Scarcely a day or night pass
es that an auto party does not visit
one or the other of these "summer
resorts." They are about all the "re
sorts" that most of us can indulge in
these deflation days, and the writer
has not had time thus far to repair
to these near-home resorts.
Superintendent Arrives This
Mr. W. 0. Tatum, Jr., who has
been elected superintendent of the

tember. Mr. Tatum comes to Edge

is a graduate of Wofford college and
has had several years' experience su
perintending schools. The Advertiser
bespeaks for him cordial and whole
hearted support and co-operation
from our people.
First Sermon in Edgefield.
Mr. Douglas Timmerman preach
ed his first sermon in Edgefield in
the Baptist church Sunday morning.
Although he had but a short time in
which to prepare the sermon, it was
a splendid, well rendered discourse
which would have done credit to a
veteran in the ministry. His manner
in the pulpit was easy, graceful and
altogether pleasing to the large con
gregation which' assembled to hear
him. At the close of the service scores
rushed to the front to express their
commendation and to bid him God
speed in his life of sacrifice and ser
vice of his Master. The Edgefield
church is very proud of Douglas Tim
merman, as was shown by the ova
tion Sunday morning.
Mass Meeting of Farmers.
Elsewhere in this issue is found
an announcement^ of a mass meet
ing of farmers to be held in the
school building at Johnston, Thurs
day morning, August 18, at ten
o'clock. While probably other things
of interest to farmers will doubtless
be discussed, yet the leading ques
tion will be dairying. Experts and
specialists from Clemson College and
from the United States Department
of Agriculture will be present and
deliver addresses that well be help
ful. There is no denying the fact that
farmers, and consequently every oth
er interest and business, stand face
to face with an insurmountable
brick wall, so to speak, and they
know not which way to turn for re
lief. The mass meeting at Johnston is
called for the purpose of opening up
some new avenue of relief. The time
has come when we must leave off cot
ton as certainly and as speedily as
we would desert a sinking ship. Fur
ther dependence upon cotton as a
money crop spells BANKRUPTCY.
Attend the mass meeting at John
ston Thursday of next week.

BETTIS CANTELOU |
Always Send Name.
Will people ever learn that when a
communication of any nature what
soever is sent to a newspaper for pub
lication the name of the writer must
accompany it? The Advertiser re
ceived an interesting news letter for
-publication this week but no name
accompanied it, consequently it re
mains on our desk. Again we repeat,
always send your name with an ar
iitcle intended for publication. If re
quested, the name will not be publish
ed, but it must be in possession of
the editor or the communication will
not be published.
Card of Thanks.
I am deeply grateful for the very
generous support which I received in
the election at Edgefield Saturday
from the people of every section
which patronized the Edgefield cot
ton market. It shall be my purpose
also to show my appreciation of this
manifestation of confidence in me by
a continued effort-to do my full duty
to all who sell and buy cotton at
Edgefield. I shall always be on the
job and will always render honest
and faithful service as public cotton
weigher at Edgefield.
