It appears that enough beans have
been shipped from Edgefield within
the past few weeks that, if arranged
end to end, would make a necklace
of sufficient length to encircle the
globe. But the pity of it all is they

jeans of the growers. By the time
they reach the bean eaters of Boston
the express company and railroads
gobble up the profit.

Long may they remain on duty at.
their present posts.
The members of the Baraca class
of the Baptist Sunday school held
their annual picnic at Smith's pond
Friday afternoon, extending into the
night. Runabouts, touring cars, se
dans and coupes loaded with pleasure
seeking men and women and boys
and girls formed a merry pageant,
leading to this popular watering
place-water for dipping rather than
sipping. After disrobing and partial
ly enrobing again many of the throng
took a plunge in the water before
partaking of the meats and sweets.
While some were as graceful as
nymphs, others moved around por
poiselike-yet all had the time of
their lives. The climax came when the. 1
feast ?including genuine Edgefield ,
i barbecued hash, was spread upon the
tables under the trees.
Indicated Nobility of Character ^
It is indeed refreshing to observe J
manifestations of nobility of charac
ter in a boy who has just entered his
teens. An unmistakable indication of s
nobility of character in a boy is for ^
him to be constantly thoughtful of
his mother, ever ready to contribute *
to her pleasure and comfort. A few
days ago a knee-pants Edgefield boy 1
climbed an apple tree to pick the *
choice fruit, rather than knock it to
the ground to be bruised and broken.
Presently he was heard to exclaim in 3
great glee, "Here's the biggest, red- ?
dest apple on the tree. I'll keep it for
Mama." He did not hide it away in.
his pocket to be eaten and enjoyed'*
by himself. But upon seeing the beau
tiful apple, the choicest on the tree, n
he at once thought of mother. How ?
beautiful was the impulse of that no
ble boy! Far more beautiful than the |t
luscious apple itself!
W. C T. U. Picnic at County
If one picnic at the County Home
could be better than another, the one
of 1922 was the best of all. A goodly
number from Johnston and Edgefield
and Meeting Street attended and a
bountiful dinner with iced tea and
lemonade was served to all who came
and eleven boxes of good things to
eat sent to the homes of tlu inmates.
Mr. and Mrs. Allen were greatly
interested and very helpful and hos
pitable and made the day more pleas
ant by their sympathetic cooperation, s
After dinner, exercises by the (
Loyal Temperance Legion of John- a
ston were held in the chapel under y
the direction of Mrs. J. H. White, s
their heroic and indefatigable l?ader. c
Notic? is hereby given that Certifi- c
