Very Cordial Welcome.
For some months Mr. T. J. Paul has
spent every week end in Augusta,
and occasionally his visits would ex
tend far into the week, but his
friends were not until recently fully
apprised of the reason, for his fond
ness for Augusta. On December 28,
last, Mr. Paul and Miss Leila Jeffries
were married at the home of her
mother, Mrs. Genie Jeffries, but as
it was impossible for her to leave
her mother then to make her home in
Edgefield, Mr. Paul did not make a
public announcement of their mar
riage until recently in Edgefield.
Saturday he made his last week-end
trip to Augusta, for Monday he
brought Mrs. Paul with him to reside
permanently in Edgefield. They are
for the present occupying rooms in
the Addison building. Edgefield ex
tends a very cordial welcome to Mrs.
Planting Late ? Potatoes.
More attention ought to be given
the growing of late potatoes in this
section. There is a ready market in
the South for more potatoes than the
South grows any year. Two varieties
are recommended. The Lookout
Mountain and the Peachblow. The
peachblow is an improved variety of
the Lookout Mountain. In Virginia
enormous yields of these potatoes
are grown, often as many as fifty to
one. ? see no reason why fine crops
should not be grown here.
Do not plant, before the first of
August. If you plant them in July the
probability is that the long hot dry
September spell will catch them when
the young potatoes have formed and
they will be injured. Planting after
the first of August will more likely
enable them to weathe'r out that spell
and when the rain comes late in Oc
tober they will make.
Plant them in deep rich soil, bot
tom land preferred. Lay off your
rows late in the afternoon and early
next morning drop your potatoes and
cover them with a big furrow to pro
tect them from the hot sun. In a few
days, before the spud comes through
drag off the furrow,' leaving your
field as near level as possible. A half
ton 7-5-5 per acre is necessary to get
a good crop. They require little work
Iii order to supply the increasing demands of our patrons for
modern and improved battery service we have installed a com
plete battery station. We can charge and repair any type of
battery or we can.make a new battery for your car, as we are
so well equipped in every detail.
We will rent you a battery while yours is being charged, so
you will not be deprived of the use of your car.
Oar Prices are Reasonable
If you want an early delivery, better file your order for a
Ford car at once.

Death of Mrs. F. L. Tim
The sudden death of Mrs. F. L.
Timmerman, Jr., in Edgefield at the
home of her parents, ' Mr. and Mrs.
John H. Cogburn, early Sunday
morning cast a gloom over our com
munity. All severing of human ties
is sad but the taking of a young moth
er, leaving a little son but a little
more than a day old, is inexpressibly
sad. During Saturday Mrs. Timmer
man was resting well but grew worse
Saturday night. She received the
best possible attention during her
short sickness, everything possible
being done that would in any way
contribute to her relief and comfort.
Before her marriage Mrs. Timmer
man was Miss Carolee Cogburn. She
was born and reared in the Meeting
Street section of the county; In her
girlhood days she attended school in
Edgefield three years, winning several
medals for her excellent record. She
also made many friends here who re
member her very pleasantly. Soon
after their marriage about two years
ago Mr. and Mrs. Timmerman made
their home in Atlanta. During her
stay in Atlanta, she placed her church
letter with the Frist Baptist church,
of which she was a member at the
time of her death. Last fall Mr. and
Mrs. Timmerman moved to the Be
rea community, where they have since
Besides her devoted husband
and a dear little son, Mrs. Timmer
man is survived by her parents, two
brothers, Earl and Stevens Cogburn,
and five sisters, Mrs. C. J. Eager of
Chattanooga; Mrs. Clint Hill of
Meeting Street; Mrs. J. H. Major of
Washington, D. C.; Mrs. D. C. Flem
ing of?Columbia and Miss Reba Cog
burg of Atlanta. <
The funeral was conducted Mon
day afternoon at two o'clock at
Stevens Creek church by Rev. W. P.
Brooke and the interment took place
in the family square in the cemetery.
The rain has about stopped in this
community and we hope for a week
or two of fair weather so the farmers
can plant some more corn, as there
has not been very much planted yet.

Gasoline production is an industry
concentrated in the direction of a
few corporations. The public is at
their mercy. They are entitled to just
treatment, they should be heard for
their cause, but it is highly necessary
that the representatives of the public
exercise energy and vigilance to see
that it is not ruthlessly imposed upon
in a period when other prices are de
clining and the buying power of the
dollar is increasing.
