Statement of AH Banks.
The quarterly statements of all
of the seven banks in the county are
published in this issue. They show
about what money is owed by the
people of the county in notes and
mortgages and also show how much
tht people have on deposit with the
banks. Every surplus or idle dollar
in the county should be deposited in
some one of the seven banks in the
county. It is better for the individ
uals and better for the banks for
money to be deposited in banks rath
er than keep it on one's person or
about the house where it is liable to
be burned or stolen. Learn to keep
your money in a bank and pay your
bills by check. Then you will never
have to pay a bill twice.

Columbia's Newest Hotel.
The DeSoto is Columbia's newest
hotel centrally located on Lady
street. It was built by Mr. George
R. Norris at a cost of over $100,000.
The building is modern in every de
tail. It can furnish accommodations
for about 100 guests and has a pri
vate or connecting bath with every
room. The furnishings of the hotel
are strictly first-class. The DeSoto
supplies a need for increased hotel
accomodations in Columbia and
should prove to be a success from
the outset. Edgefield people should
stop at the DeSoto, thereby encour
aging Mr. Norris in his new enter
prise. The Advertiser wishes for the
splendid new hotel a full measure of

Friday night, January 6. This was one
of the best meetings in a long time.
An unusual number were present,
and many participating in the discus
sion of matters coming up for at
tention which at times was lively,
gave life and interest to what is gen
erally looked upon as very dull rou
tine business. It is expected to so ar
range the meetings that interest and
attendance will be increased, and in
fact improvement has already been
noted. A called communication will
be held Friday night, January 27. At
the close of the last meeting refresh
ments, consisting of sandwiches and
cold drinks, were served.

Mid-Winter Meetings Im
It sems well nigh impossible to
hold mid-winter meetings of a gener
al character in Edgefield. The weath
er, bad roads, seeming indifference of
the people in winter, or something
else keeps many from attending. A
meeting of the Sunday school su
perintendents of the Edgefield Bap
tist association was called for Friday
last at the Baptist church here but
not a sufficient number atended to
hold the meeting. A mass meeting
of farmers was called for last Mon
day in the Court House but only a
corporal's guard came to attend the
meeting. But if we expect to improve
conditions along every line, our peo
ple will have to bestir themselves
twelve months in the year, instead of
hibernating about two months in the
year. In this Southland we are not
snow and ice-bound as they are in the
colder sections of the country and
we really have little to lay upon the
weather fer our inaction. True the
roads are getting bad but our people
should have become somewhat accus
tomed to bad roads by this time.
Y. M. C. A. Workers Visited
Three representatives of the State
Young Men's Christian Association,
T. B. Lanham, W. V. Martin and B.
A. Schnell, came over from Columbia
and conducetd special services in the
churches here Sunday. In the morn
ing Mr. Lanham addressed the men's
class of the Methodist Sunday school
and also delivered an address at the
hour of the morning services at the
Methodist church and Mr. Martin
conducted similar services at the
same time at the Baptist church. In
the afternoon at 3 o'clock Mr. Schnell
conducted a service for boys at the
Methodist church and Mr. Martin ad
dressed a men's meeting at the Bap
tist church. At night a mass meeting
was held at the Baptist church with
Mr. Lanham in charge. All of these
services were helpful and inspiring.
It was regretted that the inclement
weather prevented the attendance
from being as large as was expected.
Mr. Lanham was born and reared in
Edgefield and is always very cordial
ly greeted by his Edgefield friends
when he returns to his old home.
