Welcome Service for the New
Pastor Edgefield Baptist
A Welcome Service in honor of
Rev. A. T. Allen, the new pastor of
the Edgefield Baptist church will be
held Sunday Evening at 7:M0 in the
Baptist church. A program is being
arranged for the occasion by the lo
cal pastors and committee from the
several churches of the town. Mr. Al
len has already begun his work in the
new pastorate and has made a fine
impression not only on his own con
gregation but in general upon our
townspeople who have had the oppor
tunity to meet him. We bespeak for
him a successful pastorate in "Old
Edgefield." Edgefield opens her door
to him and with it a great opportu
nity for service in our common cause
of religious uplift and civic right
Not in our twenty years of news
paper experience have we published
an article which provoked as much
comment as did the article by "High
Finance" which appeared in Th-? Ad
vertiser last week. At least more in
quiries and move comment, nine
tenths of which was favorable, reach
ed us through various sources con
cerning the article tba:; we recall
ever to have hean! before. Il was
well written, with a tincad of irony
running through it that most people
discerned and were impressed by ii,
and it was written, too, at a time
when th:- pu!die mimi felt the force
of the statements, which though made
in irony contained more than a mod
icum of real truth. It made a deep
impression upon many readers, sev
eral representative farmers having
stated that they were glad the article
appeared in print at this time. Scores
have been curious to know its author.
Some placed it at the editor's door,
others inquired if a Northern man
wrote it and still others desired to
know whether it was written by i
Democrat or a Republican. The au
thro, a true blue Democrat, was horn,
reared and still lives in Edge field
county and has the best interests of
all the people at heart, particularly
the farming interests. Possibly he
will write other article? for publi
cation. We hope so.
Mr. Ree^e Writes From Florida
Editor Edgefield Advertiser:
I received my first copy of The Ad
vertiser yesterday and I certainly was
glad to get it. It made me feel like I
was up on the old hill reading it, but
when I looked out of my window be
hold there was the Gulf of Mexico to
be seen and not my hill and the little
grand children that I have looked up
on thousands of times in the past. A
man can be 700 miles from home and
reading his home paper makes him
forget for the time being that he is
so far away from loved ones.
Well, I don't know of anything
i special that will interest you people
only to say the people herc are too
lazy to work. This country is very
poor because the vegetation never
dies it is so warm down here. I can
show you a i. astor bean that is ten
years old and it is growing right on.
A great many people were at the
meeting yesterday in their shirt
I sleeves. There is a good meeting bc
, ing conducted here at the Southern
. Methodist church and in the parle on
. Sunday afternoon. The Salvation
. Army is also doing a good work for
] I am still working every day but
I don't know how long it will be be
fore some Yank will say, '"Well, I
. will have to lay you off for a few
, days so as to take care of some Yan
Well, I hope that if 1 ever get back
to Edgefield there will be a great
change in some things that were go
in^ on. The country people thought
the hoi I weevil was a fraud, but ah.
too late. Some people thought God
had nothing io do with farms, mer
chants and banks. The people are
now undoubtedly satisfied that some
power has shown itself. The cotton
question is oil' over there anti it may
prove a blessing:. There are no hard
time here because there are not ten ?
acres of cotton in the county. Nobody
is hard up here who is willing to
work. He will live but it is the high
est place to live in you ever saw.
String beans are higher here than
they are Edgefield. The beans here
are shipped to Edgefield. They sid I
here for 1.") and 20 cents per pound.
Good luck to the Old Advertiser
