"What God Hath Wrought."
As we sat in Mr. W. P. Yonce's of
fice late Monday afternoon and "lis
tened in" on the radio wires to a mu
sical program that was being render
ed in Atlanta we thought of the first
telegraphic message which was sent
after the Morse code was invented,
between Washington and Baltimore,
"What God hath wrought." Truly it
is wonderful. Owing to the presence
of so much electricity in the atmos
phere at this season, at times it is
difficult to hear distinctly but it
seems that after nightfall more sat
isfactory results are obtained. Fre
quently Mi*. Yonce can receive mes
sages, market reports and musical
concerts from Pittsburg, Philadelphia
and New York. By installing the ra
dio equipment Mr. Yonce has render
ed the community a great service and
he deserves the appreciation and com
mendation of our people. He has an
attachment to his instrument which
will render the messages audible some
distance from the machine. Having a
radio equipment in our midst keeps
Edgefield abreast of the other pro
gressive towns of the state.
One Negro Boy Killed Another. *
Saturday afternoon Monroe John- t
son, a negro boy 13 years of age, j
shot and instantly killed John Oli
phant, another negro boy ll years of
age. They resided near Pleasant
Grove church. It seems that the two
boys were left at home together and ?
about two o'clock Saturday afternoon j
the shooting occurred. Whether acci- (
dental or whether the crime was com- t
mitted in a fit of temper, is not \
known. But very probably it was ac- t
cidental. After Monroe shot John he j
dragged his body some distance from (
the house and placed it in a gulley, i
stating that he did this because he t
was frightened. The shotgun was fired -\
at close range, the entire load passing t
through the little boy's body. An in- ?
quest was held by magistrate J. B. r
Tompkins Monday and the verdict cf 1
the jury was to the effect that John e
?liphant died of a gunshot wound in
flicted by Monroe Johnson, who was
placed in jail. At iihe inquest and af
ter being placed in jail the youthful
slayer seemed not to realize that he
had committed a dreadful crime. J <

A New Celebrity.
A new name has recently been
?added to Edgefield's list of celebri
ties. We refer to that of Mrs. Alleen
Smith who is making a name and
fame for herself as a composer of
songs. The words of her song, "I
Want a Little Sister," have recently
been set tc music by George Craff,
J.r., one of the foremost musical com
posers of the day, and printed by
the World Music Publishing Corpora
tion of New York. Mrs. Smith has
also composed other songs that will
be issued from the press in a short
time. The words of the above song
are as follows:
"Mama," said a bright faced lad,
I'd be so happy if I had,
A little sister of my own,
So I'd not .have to play alone,
"Then pray to God in Heaven above,
He sends us little ones to love."
Oh Dod I want a little sister,
I wants her, oh, so bad
I'll give her all my playthings
And everything I has
Now Dod please send my sister,.
And send her right away
Just tell me where I'll find her,
In the house or in the hay.
Sister, have you come to stay?
Oh, I'm so glad, let's go and play,
But Mama took the little one,
And said "She's very much too
young," . .
"Well Mama, I'll call Dod and say,
I want a sister what can play."
