prevent the next war being labeled

what the conference decides upon.

Though considerably less than a

South's Oldest Newspaper. '
Although published in Georgia, the
people of Edgefield have for genera
tions looked upon the Augusta Chron
icle as a South Carolina paper, a
home paper. Consequently the people
here deeply- sympathize with Mr T.
J. Hamilton, its editor and president
of the company, in the great loss
which he sustained last week. Al
. though several years ago the Chron
icle met a like fate, that of having
its plant destroyed by fire, yet n a
short time it arose from the ashes
better equipped to serve its large
clientele than ever. And. we prc diet
that this, "the South's Oldest News
paper," wuTsoon be better equipped
than ever, continuing to be a very
potent factor for the upbuilding of
Greater Augusta. The merciless
flames may destroy the Chronicle's
mechanical equipment temporarily,
but they can not destroy the daunt
less spirit which has characterized it
all down through 135 years of exis
tence. The Advertiser sympathizes"
deeply with its esteemed contempo
rary and would that we could do
something to aid in its Immediate res

Increase Wheat Acreage.
Farmers will diversify now. No
other course is. open to them. The
cotton acreage must and will be re
duced. Now what crops will be plant
ed instead? One that should be al
lotted a generous portion of the in
creased acreage of food crops should
be wheat. Bread and meat can no
longer be purchased in the West.
The Southern farmer will not have
the wherewith to buy, so unless many
of them produce it at home their
families will go hungry. In order to
supply the pantry with flour next
year, the wheat acreage of Edgefield
county must be greatly increased this
fall. Already much wheat has been
sown but not enough to "bread" the
people of the county. The time for
planting is growing short. True it is
better to sow the latter part of No
vember but by the middle of Decem
ber is not too late. If you have not al
ready sown largely of wheat, say
double usual acreage, begin sowing
again as soon as the condition of the
soil will permit. If you harvest more
wheat next summer than is needed
for family consumption, it can read
ily be sold for cash. '

When the many friends and rela
tives of Mrs. S. W. Gardner, Sr.,
learned of her death on last Mon
day November 14th, they were sore
ly grieved, as everyone who knew
her loved her and her death was so
sudden. She seemed to be in" fairly
good health on the morning of her
death. After finishing her breakfast
she was stricken. For several months
her health had been steadily failing.
"Cousin Mollie," as she was called
by so many friends, was an energetic
business woman and had led a most
active life. She was a great home
loving woman and took great inter
est in her home and always had a
good garden. Her children and ?neigh
bors, have been remembered many
times with her. vegetables, fruits and
flowers. "Cousin Mollie" always had
something nice for her friends and
loved to do#good deeds for them.
She was a high toned Christian wo
men, being a member xpf - Hardys
church from early girlhood. Though
she was not able on account of fail
ing health to attend her church, she
never forgot the church and did her
duty towards it in other ways. There
never lived a more refined or modest
woman. She was known far and near
for her purity of character. Before
her marriage she was Mary E. An
derson, and she and her husband had
always lived in this community. She
was a faithful and devoted wife and
her kind husband loved her most
tenderly. He never forgot "Mollie"
one time in his life. During all of
their married life he watched out for
her interest always and now in his
sad lonely hours we shall not forget
him and beg to mingle our tears with

Well Known Newspaper Says
Will Work for the Lord
One of the most unusual state
ments that ever appeared in a news
paper is the following^ from a recent
issue of the Fountain Inn Tribune
published at Fountain Inn, in Green
ville county, whose editor, Robert
Quillen, widely known as a writer
for magazines and newspaper*" syndi
cates and as the editor of "Small
Town Talk" in the Saturday Evening
.'Of all hard jobs in the world, that
of making a public confession is the?
hardest. But if it is the only square
thing to. do, it must be done. This,
therefore ,is an open letter to the
young fellows at Fountain Inn-the
"good fellows, the fellows I love and
loaf with at times-the fellows I
have taken 'drinks with and fellow
"All this while I have been a mem
ber of the church-just that and
nothing more. And when my con
scious bothered me about*taking a
drink when I could get it, I said to
myself : 'Why, I am a liberal support
er of the church; I pay the tithe; I
am a gentleman and a man of intel
ligence; there's no harm in my tak
ing a drink, when I want it, for I can
"I said that, but I was a liar. And
while posing as a church member and
a follower of Christ and yet reserv
ing the right to take a drink ?t my
pleasure I was considerably lower
down than a snake's belly.
"This is a bitter dose to swallow,
fellows, but I had it coming to me.
And if my conduct, has led any of you
to believe that a man can retain "his
honor while carrying water on both
shoulders, I want to make it clear
that it's an impossibility.
"Pm through. I'm 3^ years of age,
and have never struck a lick for my'
Lord. From now on I am His, to use
as He thinks best and I'll stick to?
Him if it costs me everything I have
and every friend I have.
"I'm ashamed, fellows. Forgive me
for having been square.
The United States government
and Americans generally owe a debt
of gratitude to the Daughtres of tht
American Revolution for their gene
rosity in lending Continental Mem
orial Hall for the plenary meetings
of the conference on limitations of
armaments. Thfc National Capital is
fortunate in having such a building.
It is admirably adapted 'to the uses
of the conference. The delegations
are seated where all can see and hear
well and there is ample room for the
advisory delegations that are in at
tendance. The balconies afford addi
tional space for the diplomatic corps
and for the general public. The light
ing of the auditorium is excellent,
and the acoustic properties are all
that could be desired. The corridors
enable visitors to meet and mingle
without confusion. %
The sessions of the conference
have been marked by dignity and sim
plicity. The audjence is keenly re
sponsive, but always orderly. The
delegates, some of the men of world
wide fame, are always in view and
can be easily .heard by every one
within eyesight. No other building
in Washington would have been as
suitable for this international gather
