Advertisements Bring Results.
Place your "Found," "Lost,"
"Want" and "For Sale" advertise
ments in The Advertiser. A gentle
man from Savannah lost a leather
bag between Edgefield and Pleasant
Lane and inserted an advertisement
to that effect in The Advertiser last
week. Dr. J. T. Pattison fou-id the
bag and the advertisement will en
able him to restore the bag to its
owner. Had the advertisement not
been published, Dr. Pattison would
never have known the owner of the
bag. Let The Advertiser help you out
of your troubles. That is part of its
mission. These small advertisements
Let's Avoid Low Water
Friday, Batesburg was visited by a
very disastrous fire entailing a loss
of around $100,000, and Saturday
Columbia has a conflagration of
around $300,000, both occurring in
the business center of the stricken
cities. Strange to say the reports of
both fires in the newspapers stated
that the water pressure was low. Just
why and who was to blame for the
low water pressure, whether anybody
or not, is not stated. Let Edgefield
profit by the misfortunes of these two
cities and never, if it can possibly.be
prevented, allow the water pressure
to be lower than customary or nor
mal. It seems to be the irony of fate,
for a great conflagration to occur
when the water pressure is low. Just
like a fire frequently occurs after a
policy has been canceled or a death
occurs soon after a life policy has
lapsed. Let's bear in mind that the
"fire-bug," whatever that is, usually
seizes the favorable moment when
the water pressure is low.
Send Them the Home Paper.
.Several parents have come in and
subscribed for The Advertiser to be
sent to their son or daughter at col
elge. Have you a son or daughter
away at college? The absent one
would appreciate a home paper. You
may undertake to send the copy of
The Advertiser which goes into your
home every week, but you will over
look it half the time. The paper will
go regularly to them', if you have
their name placed on The Advertis
er's subscription list.
Unveiling of Monument by
Knights of Pythias.
The Knights of Pythias of Augus
ta will unveil the monument erected
by them to the memory of W. C.
Yonce at Johnston, S. C., on Sunday
afternoon, September 25, 1921, all
of the Augusta lodges participating,
as well as the Grand Lodge Officers
of South Carolina and Georgia. They
have also invited the Lodges at Aiken
Edgefield and Johnston, S. C. to par
ticipate, and we trust that a large
attendance will be present.
W. C. Yonce lost his life in the war
:v.id this monument is a fitting testi
monial to his memory.
Live Within Your Means.
No, we are not all going to the
bow-wows on account of boll weevils.
Those who have practiced and are
still practicing economy will emerge
from the "hard times" somewhat dis
figured but still in the ring, while
those who are prodigal with their
earnings will have a rather pinched
existence. True, it will be hard
enough on us all but not so hard on
those who live within their means. It
is astonishing how little people can
live on when they have to. Don't try
to butter*-your bread on both sides,
if you are only able to butter it on
one. Following the prodigality of the
past few year, many of us actually
need the discipline we are now ex
Automobiles Little Used.
One day last week the writer had
occasion to observe how little auto
mobiles are used now as compared
with, say a year ago. Early in the
week we took a buggy ride, not own
ing a Ford or automobile, up the
Ninety Six road several miles above
Meeting Street, and not after leaving
the town limits did we meet or were
we passed by a motor driven vehicle,
of any kind while "goin' and comin'."
One or two years ago we would prob
ably have been kept in the ditch much
of the time while driving .26 miles
in Edgefield county. It seems then,
that money makes the automobiles,
as well as the mare, go.
Cotton Crop Short.
Not until within the past week
have many people realized how short
the cotton crop will be. The rank
growth of the stalk has in many
places misled farmers and only af
ter the harvesting season is over will
it be known how very short the yield
will be this year in this section. Last
week the writer went through some
cotton growing on land above the
average in fertility and yet it will
take ten acres to produce a bale. Fre
quently in cotton as high as a man's
shoulders a single boll would not be
found in a space of ten feet in a
row. The wet weather was favorable
for thu weevil and the little pest im
proves his golden opportunity.
