EDGEFIELD, S. C., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21, 1922
"Clean Up Weeli" Observed.
Death of Mr. J. S. Park
man. Afternoon Pic
"Clean-up-Week" was observed
here during the past week, the move
ment being put on by the council, and
a prize of $5 was offered for the
most attractive back yard. At many
of the homes the back yards are just
as attractive as the front, with flow
ers, shrubbery and shade trees, and
the town, in a general way, is a pret
ty spot. The movement, though was
a good one and such will keep any
town an attractive and healthy place.
The council went around on a tour
of inspection and found it a hard
matter in making a decision, for
everywhere looked so nice. They are
wishing it had been a blue ribbon of
fered, so then a blue ribbon could
have been tied on every back gate.
The times do not ^?rmit of $5 being
placed at every gate..

The Summerland Creamery.
Batesburg, June 19.-The Sum
merland Creamery, which has been in
operation less than two months, is
proving to be just what the farmers
of this section needed, according to
D. C. Dadger, District Dairy Hus
bandman, who reports that the cream
ery is' helping to put the farmers on
a cash basis-the greatest need per
haps of South Carolina farmers to
The creamery, the establishment
of which was promoted by the Ex
tension Service, is run in connection
with the Batesburg Beverage and Ice
Co.. so that the power refrigeration
and space were provided without the
usual expense of money and time for
these things. Beginning with an ini
tial churning of only 122 pounds of
butter, it is now receiving 1200 to
15000 pounds of cream per week
from which are made 600 to 700
pounds of butter. A first class prod
uct is being made and there is no
trouble in selling it to advantage in
Columbia, Augusta, Aiken and Bates
burg. In fact, the supply cannot meet
Since the creamery has been in
operation, the Manager, Mr. M. P.
Hazel, has also put in a milk-feeding
station for poultry, which provides
a market for all kinds of poultry. The
broilers received are placed in bat
teries and bed on buttermilk mash
for fourteen days and then shipped
to Northern markets at a fancy
During May the creamedy and the
poultry market paid to the farmers
a little over $1400. Of this amount,
the creamery alone paid $760. The
farmers in the vicinity of Batesburg
are naturally very well pleased, and
if it continues to manufacture the
quality of butter now being turned
out, it will have a splendid growth.

"Uncle Iv" Morgan Writes
June 6, 1922* \
Dear Old Edgefield Advertiser:
I am now entering into my seven
ty-ninth year, since the tenth of this
month, and with the exception of a
short period of my life I have been
reading The Advertiser since I was
a ten-year-old boy.
I notice occasionally the question
is asked by some of your correspond
ents, "Where is Uncle Iv?" And my
answer is, I am still in Georgia, ex-i
cept a part of every Friday, the day
the paper from Edgefield comes, and
for a while my mind is over there, as
I read the letters from almost all
sections of the county.
On last Saturday the 11th nine of
my thirteen children now living took
dinner with me. Children and grand
children in all, twenty-nine, and a
birthday cake with seventy eight lit
tle red and white candles placed in
the center of the table ,and as each,
one took their seats at the table they
lit a candle and after burning them
a while they were blown out.
And the thought came to me, yes,,
our lives will go out, and the verses
of two songs have been ringing in.
my ears all this week. One of the
verses goes like this:
"A few more days shall come,
A few more seasons roll,
And we will be at rest with those
that sleep beneath the tomb."
The other song has these words- *
"The evening sun is sinking low,
A few more days and I must go."
Go where? The old body of flesh;
to the grave, but where does the ten
ant of the body go? Well, 'tis owing
to how we have treated this tenant if
we have invited the Christ in to keep
the tenant (the soul) company, then
all is well with the soul. Yes, my
soul and your soul. And when death
calls us from this world, we have ai}
house not made, with . hands eterna^
in the heavens, where ?Christ has gone
to' prepare a place for all who will,
accept that home.
And in closing let me say to the
young that the best time to prepare
for that home is while young. Why?
Well, you can put out a little tree,
and with care make it grow up
straight, but when the tree grows
large it is too late then to straighten
it. Don't wait till old age comes on to
prepare for eternity.
Love to all of old Edgefield from:
