Tax Extension _
The tax extension resolu
tion introduced by Mr. Wells
was adopted by both the sen
ate and the House but was re
turned to the senate by the
governor with his veto. The
senate at once passed it over
whelmingly over his veto and
sent it to the House for action.
The latter body also by an
overwhelming vote showed
its disapproval of the gover
nor's veto. The resolution now
has the effect of a statute

1, with no executions to be is
sued until September.
Supervisor Turns Detective
Mr. A. A. Edmunds not only
makes a good supervisor but
within the last few days has
shown that he would make a
good detective also. Early
last summer Mr. B. R. Tillman
became bondsman for two
negroes, Henry Lanham and
Will Norris, who were charged
with car breaking and larceny.
Just before the August term of
court the negroes left for parts
unknown. Recently Mr. Ed
munds located Henry Lanham
in Augusta and Will Norris in
Columbia. Both have been
arrested and are now in jail
awaiting trial at the March
term of court.
The Dixie Highway
Great is the pity that the
splendid work which was be
ing done on the Dixie Highway
in Buncombe has been retard
ed by the unfavorable weather
making the sand too heavy to
haul. Those who have labor
ed so faithfully and unselfish
ly, both in and out of town,
deserve the highest commen
dation of our people. The
portion of the road upon which
sand has been heavily spread
is during this wet season like
an altogether different road.
We trust that as soon as the
weather permits the for
ces will again be organized
and the good work continue
until the entire road in town

3:30 o'clock Miss Kate Mirns

ried at the Baptist parsonage
by Rev. A. T. Allen, only a few

greatly surprised when the
announcement of the marriage
spread, as their plans were on
ly made known to . a few
friends. The bride and groom
motored to Augusta immed
iately after their marriage and
after a trip of sever?! days will
return to Edgefield the latter
part of the week. Both of
these young people are univer
sally popular in Edgefield and
their friends wish them every
Citizens Mass Meeting at r
Court House Monday
Night March Sixth
At an informal meeting of several
citizens of Edgefield held Tuesday
night the local condition with respect
to law enforcement was discussed.
We are of the opinion that condi
tions can be made better by rallying
our citizens to the cause of law en
forcement. We are going from bad
to worse and -if something is not
done to check the open and flagrant
violation of the Prohibition laws,
calamatous results can but follow.
* Therefore: We the ministers of
Edgefield respectfully ask all our
citizens, both ladies and gentlemen,
to meet, in a Citizens Mass Meeting
at the Court House Monday Night,
Eight O'clock, March 6th, for the
purpose of organizing a Law And
Order League and in every way pos
sible help to make Edgefield a bet

A Country Girl's Creed.
Many of the papers are giving at
tention to "A Country Girl's Creed."
Mrs. Flora Bullock's apostrophe to
country life, written for the North
Carolina Community Progress:
"I believe that the country is a bet
ter place for me to live than the city,
because it is cleaner, quieter and
more beautiful. I believe that I can
find no nobler work than to use all
the knowledge and skill I can obtain
to make my country home a place of
happiness for my family and friends.
"I believe that the community in
which I live is a part of my home and
that I should work earnestly with my
neighbors to bring more helpfulness
and joy into the community life.
"I believe that God did not mean to
shut me in a house, away from the
free air and sunshine. I believe that
all the blessings of the great outdoors
are intended for me. I believe that
for me, too, it is an ennobling privi
lege to work with Nature-to care
for the life giving soil w.ith my own
hands, to sow che seed and help it
grow. I believe that all my life I
should plan to have some work that
calls me every day into the open air.
"I believe in learning to enjoy good
books, good music and good pictures.
But most of all ? believe in reading
in Nature's unwritten books the won
derful stories of lpants and animals;
in listening to the music of birds and
insects, of wind and rain; in watch
ing the ever changing picture of
earth and sky. For I believe that God
has given all these things to make
my country hojne beautiful and dear
to me."-Augusta Chronicle.

Carelessness in Transporting
When a bank sends through the
streets of New York something like
$40,000 in cash one would expect it
to give that highly portable form of
wealth more efficient guardians than
two unarmed negro employees,* one
earning $16 and the other less, and ?a

That the same men often had per
formed such tasks before and arrived
safely with their treasure at their as
signed destinations may' explain the
continuance of the practice, but it
leaves the .beginning of it a mystery
-much more of a mystery, indeed,
than is the fact that in a city where
large sums of money are' left practi
cally unprotected bandits should be
numerous and successful.
The banks, it is stated, suffer no
loss, because the money in transit was
But it that quite true? Insurance
distributes losses; it does not prevent
them or even decrease them.-New
This is criticism well put. It does
appear that there is a woeful lack of
"safety first" in this matter of trans
porting money, and that just a little
more care and a little more precau
tion might be exercised-not only On
the part of-big houses sending out
huge amounts by messengers, but by
industries delivering lesser sums at
plants for payroll purposes.
There have been a huge number
of robberies of late-of these snatch
thefts. Bandits always seem to know
when to attempt "jobs" of the kind,
and, as a rule, "get away" with the
money. One detective, no lesser a
man Byrnes himself has said, that,
in many instances, street robbers who
"go in" for this class of stealing, are
practically invited to commit the
crimes of which they are guilty. If
the underworld knew that shadowing
every messenger carrying a satchel
of money there were a couple of
plainclothesmen, or other men well
armed, there would be a lesser num
ber of attempts at street bandits.
