Thus far "flappers" haven't "flap

well not to be abreast of the times

k The Apostle Paul wrote frequent

certain it is that Edgefield people are
more bonded than free.

Water, one of life's essentials, is

The reason most of us are having

Edgefield county polled 1,540
votes in the primary two years ago
and should poll 2,500 this year. How
ever, the number depends upon the
enrollment. Only those who enroll
can vote in the primary.

The individual who thinks no
more of the welfare of his country

is not as good citizen as he or she

Somebody said away back yonder,
'When thi?ves fall out honest men

let us hope that when Republicans

A Good Selection.
The vacancy on the board of trus
tees of Clemson College has been
??led by the election of Mr. B. E.
Geer of Greenville as a life trustee.
Mr. Geer is a high-minded, forward
looking man whose name would do
honor to any college or university.
For a number of years he was a mem
ber of the faculty of Furman Uni
versity and gave up that position to
actively engage in cotton manufac
turing in Greenville upon a large
scale. He is also connected with oth
er industrial enterprises. By those
who know him best Mr. Geer is look
ed upon as one of the foremost men
of the state.
Mr. J. E. Reese Arrested in
Information was received in Edge
field Saturday that Mr. Joseph E.
Reese had married a Miss Oliver of
Otto, N. C:, at Mt. Airy, Ga., on July
5 and the Georgia sheriff was in
structed by wire to arrest him and
hold him until Sheriff W. R. Swear
ingen could come for him, the charge
against Mr. Reese being desertion of
his family in Edgefield. He . has not
visited his family here since Decem
ber 28. Sheriff Swearingen went for
Mr. Reese Saturday but the Georgia
authorities refused to release him,
unless bond in the sum of $5,000 be
given. He is held there to be tried
upon the more serious charge of big
Successful Revival Meeting.
The revival services which came to
a close at the Baptist church Wed
nesday night were a pronounced suc
cess. The very earnest sermons of
Dr. Vines twice each day resulted in
adding 21 names to the church roll
and many church members were
greatly benefitted. All of the ser
vices were well attended, even from
the opening of the meeting, which
indicated that the people were in a
receptive frame of mind arid heart.
The pastor and Mrs. Allen also gave
themselves entirely over to the ser
vices, making it easier for Dr. Vines
to do his part of the work. Those
who sang and played the instruments
also added much to the effectiveness
of the meeting. Through Dr. Vines'
preaching the following united with
the church by letter: Mrs. W. R.
Swearingen, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Mor
gan, Miss Nellie Bryan, Mr. and Mrs,
J. W. Gilchrist, Mrs. J. P. Timraer
man and Mr. Louis Wood. The fol

life four years ago, June 22, 1918.
A precious one has gone from us. A
voice we loved is still. A place is va

dear Lillie has gone never to see her
on earth again. But it. is sweet to
think that we will meet her in heaven
some day in the bye and bye.
I often sit and think of you, dear
Lillie, when I am all alone, for mem

call its own. Two short days she bore
great pain and seeking a cure was all
in vain. But God who doeth all things
