Rural Carriers Organize. Mr.
Adams Fatally Injured.
Death of Miss Mar
On last Thursday the rural car
riers of Edgefield and Saluda coun
ties met at Johnston for the purpose
of organizing the Edgefield-Saluda
counties rural carriers association.
There were sixteen present, and it is
expected that by the next meeting
every carrier will have enrolled. Of
ficers elected were: J. T. Herbert,
president; Avery Bland vice president
and J.T. Aull, secretary and treas
urer. Delegates were elected to the
State Convention which will be held
at Gaffney, August 13-14. It was de
cided to have a barbecue on Labor
Day, the first Monday in September,
and a committee was appointed to
make all necessary arrangements.
The barbecue will be at Johnston, or
some nearby picnic spot.
Mr. Junius Adams was fatally in
jured on Friday afternoon at a saw
mill near town. While securing the
lever of the log cart \his flew back
striking him across the body. Medi
cal aid was secured very quickly, but
nothing could be done for the young
man, except to ease his suffering. He
lived until Saturday afternoon, and
the burial took place Sunday at
Good Hope church, Rev. C. G. Man
gum conducting the services. Mr.
Adams was about 32 years of age/
and leaves a wife and two little chil
dren, also his mother, and two sis
ters, Mrs. L. A. Whittle, of Pelham,
Ga.,- and Mrs. Forrest Smith of
Greenwood and one brother, Mr.
Goodman Adams of near Saluda.

Some of tho- farmer^of this section
have grown large ?rops of cante
loupes and musk melons and these
have been crated and large numbers
shipped to northern markets. The far
mers have been much discouraged
over the returns, there being little
or no profits in the sales and ship
ments. Several new varieties have
been grown and the melons were of
a superior quality.

The collections of the various
classes of the Baptist school on Sun
day morning last went toward pur
chasing new books for the library. A
Sunday school library is a most ex
cellent thing, and a force for good,
as it instills into the minds of the
youthful readers nothing but good
thoughts and good impulses. The re
installing of the Sunday school li
brary was a most worth while act on
the part of the school. Several years
ago the school afforded a fine libra
ry, but from constant use, the books
gradually wore out, and for a while
the library was discontinued. No
Sunday school should be without its .
well selected library.

Distance Greater by Way of 1
While coming from Anderson one '
day last week Mr. W. A. Pardue, hav- (
ing some business in Augusta, decid- ^
ed on reaching Greenwood that he -1
would go by way of McCormick just *
to take a look at the much talked of
road. He found the highway in very t
good condition but the distance from ?
Greenwood to Augusta is 8 miles i
greater by McCormick than by Edge- t
field. Furthermore, for several miles t
before reaching the river very sharp t
curves make travel, according to Mr. s
Pardue, somewhat dangerous, espe- ?
cially at night. In the main the Mc- "v
Cormick is well kept up but Mr. Par- c
due thinks it is rather narrow. Being
eight miles nearer to Augusta by ?
Edgefield we should have no trouble i
in holding the travel if we will keep X
the Dixie Highway in Edgefield coun- j
ty in a first class condition. This by \
all means should be done. Mr. Par- r
due further stated that he has reason J
to believe that in a short time the a
Aiken authorities will put in good t
condition the stretch of road be- a
tween Edgefield and North Augusta, n
With this improved, this main thor
oughfare should be made one of the ?
best in the state. a
Mrs Helen Nicholson Hostess
at Tea. t
Tuesday evening Mrs. Helen S. h
Nicholson entertained at tea for s
twelve guests in honor of Mr. and C
Mrs. T. B. Greneker and Mrs. D. D. a

guests were Messrs. Henry Howard -vi
and James Bussey of Augusta. o
Splendid Audiences Hear Co
Sunday morning Congressman-|
D. Upshaw of Atlanta arrived.
Edgefield for his third visit to 0
town, and his popularity was evin|
by the great audiences which gr?*
ed him at the appointed times. >
At the Baptist, and Methodist Sa
day schools he gave a characterisi
message and reminded the young pe
pie of the motto he had taughtjtbj
on former visits, "Let nothing |j
courage you, never give up." Ma:
of them had never forgotten it
were glad to greet the author of-"fl
inspiring motto which will inspire^
new activity and energy the flaggy
zeal of all who need it.
At ll o'clock in the Methodi
church, a full congregation greet?
the speaker who also read the Seri]
ture lesson. Rev. G. W. M. Taylb
who is always very felicitous in.h
manner of extending courtesy, intr
duced Mr. Upshaw as one of ti
splendid laymen of the South who,
helping to establish great ideals an
welcomed him most cordially.
Mr. Upshaw made one of the b??
addresses Edgefield has ever hear
m "Christian Citizenship on the Job.
He urged the carrying of religio
and Christian citizenship outside th
murchhouse door, and living the hig
life every day as well as Sunday^ Mi
Upshaw would have made a fortan
as an actor. His facial expression
are remarkable when he chooses ;t
ise that gift.
He spoke highly of Congressmai
Byrnes from this congressional, dis
;rict. He ends all of his lectures wit]
m evangelistic appeal and manifest
;o the world all unconsciously th?
.eason of his own heroic - persever
?nee-it is his v ision of the Infinite
A very delightful feature of th*
norning service was a vocal duet bj
dr. and Mrs. Wheat, of .Ch?rlesto:
vho sang with Mrs. Wheat's accbrn
?animent, "Come Unto Me
Veary." Mr. and Mrs. Wheat'hav?
ung in the churches of Columbia anc
Ulanta and their contribution to thc
ervice was greatly appreciated.
Sunday afternoon at 4:30 Mr. Up
haw spoke to the congregation at
Macedonia where he was greeted
pith great enthusiasm, and ?poke on
'Sobriety, Industry and Progress."
Ie led the singing of some of the old
ime and beautiful melodies, one of
he choruses being, "None but the
ighteous shall see God."
Sunday evening the Baptist church
iras filled to its capacity in a union
ervice of all the people of this com
lunity and others, when Mr. Up
haw spoke on "The Americanism
hat will save America."
This was one of the Chautauqua
sctures which Mr. Upshaw gave all
ver the North and West during last
hinter. It was full of power and a
reat appeal to a great audience.
Ir. Upshaw called on the women to
nroll and cast their ballots for those
rho stood for the enforcement of the
8th Amendment and who are loyal
0 the Constitution.
He said at one of the meetings
hat no man who bought liquor from
bootlegger, or blind tiger was a loy
1 citizen, because he is disloyal to
he flag of our country which pro
ects his home. Any man who drinks
he products of an illicit place of
ale, is disobeying the law of the land,
nd as guilty a criminal as the man
rho sells it for he is aiding and en
ouraging the breaking of the law.
At the two metings seventy two
ollars and sixty cents was collected
i baskets which was given to Mr.
Jpshaw as an appreciation of his
resence and messages. The meetings
rere under the auspices of the Wo
?an's Christian Temperance Union.
L similar meeting had been planned
t the regular time of mpeting but
he revival service was in progress
t the time and the time for a publie
?eeting was postponed.
The members of the Woman's
Ihristian Temperance Union hope
nd pray that these meetings on
unday have helped all the men and
romen who heard the message and
hat each one in the audience will
elp to guard the bulwark of our
trength as a nation, which is the
institution of the United States,
nd will not give ear to any lurking
nd dangerous suggestions of those
rho perhaps unwittingly would trail
ur sacred banner in the dust. ?
Mr. Tillman Urges Farmers
Engage in Dairying.
Editor Edgefield Advertiser:
These, ideas may be of some vah
I am therefore submitting them f
such consideration as farmers ov
$he county care to give, and if a:
good comes as a result I will feel 1
With boll weevils prevalent cott
is no longer a staple crop. Neither t
banker nor the farmer can afford
regard cotton as safe, sound ai
sure means of producing the mon'
to meet obligations with. Ev<
though those who plant cotton mai
a reasonable crap occasionally
when we have a hot and dry July ai
August-there is the element of u
certainty always, and a safe and co
servative business man will not a
vance much money on the crop ai
take the chance. It is a fact, wh(
we have a wet July and August
cotton crop is an assured failure.
In trying to find other things
have experimented with sweet pot
toes, Irish potatoes, snap beans, oat
vetch hay crops and rye. My exper
en ce leads me to believe I must lea\
off the truck crops. I have ' installe
too, a small dairy. It is about th;
dairy I am going to write.
Good dairy cows will pay. Will prc
duce a weekly return of a certain an
sure amount of money, and usuall
enough to operate on. There is, o
course, the question of managemen
and handling in the proper way. 1
has seemed to me all that regio:
above Edgefield C. H., is peculiar!
adapted to cattle. It is rolling, as ?
rule, washes away easily when plant
ed to crops which require shallow cul
tivation and I am convinced that cat
tie-good dairy cattle-will rebuih
the worn lands and rehabilitate thosi
farms which have gone to pieces, an<
give the farmers themselves a staph
and certain source of some monej
But not every man can succeet
with cattle. Dairy cattle require clos<
attention and must be given real care
as to feed and milking
When the temptation comes tc
slack off in the early morning hours
and not strip the last gill, remember
BE FAITHFUL. The cow thinks
when you do not take it, you do not
want it and the following morning it
will not be there.
When feed time comes be accurate.
Feeding is an exchange of ration for
milk. When improperly mixed there
is a throwing away of all the cow will
not digest, and she will not digest
feeds improperly mixed. The proper
feeding of the cows is the first prob
lem to solve. The feeds can be raised
at home-all of them.
Feed all of the roughage a cow will
Kindness is a cow's conception of
goodness, and to her a kind master
takes the place of a Beneficent Fath
er. She will respond to grooming and
she will instinctively know when there
is an unkind or vicious feeling in
your heart. Be gentle. In thinking
->ut the handling remember she is
the real producer and your work will
come to naught, if she quits on you.
Be clean. Little children perhaps,
hovering between life and death, will
drink a cup of the milk you send out.
To have it germ laden and dirty,
ought to interfere with your sleep,
because this is a bad form of slack
Fundamentally then, be honest
with your cows, be kind, be clean.
In this way one will produce the max
imum from each animal; it amounts
to giving her a fair exchange of feed
for ber milk, and it should be the
pride of a dairyman that his product
is clean food.
In the production of feed, one can
feed successfully dairy cows on oats
ground, with velvet beans ground, us
ing a pound of each for the mixture
of a grain ration.
The beauty about this mixture is,
in farming to produce oats and corn.
We always plant peas in stubble af
ter oats, and this will improve the
soil. And we should plant velvet
beans in the corn. These improve the .
Fundamentally then, we can go to
the milk cow and get a stable and
certain source of income; in feeding .
her, we can, in the production of
feeds, use crops which will leave the '.
lands richer at the end of each year,
and with time and perseverance come
out of the wilderness of uncertainty
and doubt which is apparently en
gulfing us. I do not believe there is a
quick fortune in dairying. But, in
farm management, in increasing the
fertility of the soil, and having a
source of ready money with which to
carry on business I have found the
dairy cow a friend in need.

Miss Nannie Harris was the guest of
honor at an informal but delightful
reception. Miss Harris has been at
Cedar Grove for several weeks where
she has ben enjoying a needed rest.
She is the musical director for all
the city schools of Augusta and other
educational centers in Richmond
county, and is greatly valued in the
city of Augusta.
A very catchy and interesting con
test was arranged, in story form and
rhyming so that the parts of an au
tomobile spelled a romance with
Willys-Knight being the victorious
hero. This was not an advertisement
of the Willys-Knight car, but chosen
because he had a name that jrhymed.
The most keen witted aspirant for
the prize proved to be Signora De Fa
britiis, who received a miniature auto
and the second prize was won by
Mrs. Henry Hughes Hill.
At the close of an hour of most

Death of Little Frances Moore.
While, on account of her serious ill .
ness, it was not altogether unexpect
ed, yet the death of Frances Moore,
the only daughter of Capt. and Mrs...
L. Y. Moore, which occurred Mon
day morning about nine o'clock cas.t
a gloom over the entire community. -
The immediate cause of her death ,
was pneumonia which followed an.
attack of typhoid fever. Throughout,
her illness, Frances received the.
closest and most devoted attention..
Besides her family physician and a.
trained nurse, her parents were un
ceasingly at her bedside, throughout
the long days and weary hours of the
night, leaving nothing undone that
would in any manner contribute to
her comfort. Everything possible
from a human standpoint was done
to prolong life but God saw fit to call
her unto Himself, transplanting her
from a world beset by human ills and
woes into thai; upper and better realm
where happiness is unceasing and
eternal. The sympathy of the entire
community goes out to the three de
voted brother!; and to the grief-strick
en parents who gave themselves
wholly and so unselfishly to minister
ing to her every wish and need. This
affection and sympathy of the Edge
field people was expressed by the nu
merous and very beautiful flowers
that were sent in throughout the en
tire day yesterday.
The body was taken to Columbia
this morning for interment in the
family square in Elmwood cemetery,
the family being accompanied on this
sad mission by a number of close per
sonal friends who would share their
grief with them.
