EBGEFIELD, S. C.? WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1921
Missionary From Brazil Spoke.
Death of Mrs. Workman.
Teachers Went Home
The second primary passed off in
about the same manner as the first,
the voters, men and women, coming
early. Some of the very patriotic cit
izens were kind in using their cars
for some who wanted to vote, but
were unable to walk the distance. To
vote and vote right, was the pervad
ing spirit of the day.
Sunday night at the Baptist church
the "congregation had the pleasure of
hearing Miss Pauline White speak of
her mission work in Brazil. For sev
eral years she has been a missionary
there and is doing a great work.
She told of the great field ::or work
and its needs and told many personal
experiences that made her talk ex
ceedingly interesting, which made
hearers more than ever, feel that
nothing but their best should be giv
en in promoting the work. Miss
White is in South Carolina for a
year's rest, and at present is visiting
brothers, sisters and other relatives
in the state. While in Johnston, she
and her mother are guests sf their
aunt, Mrs. Georgia Turner. Mrs.
White now has three mi?sionary
children, Rev. Maxcy White of Bra
zil, Miss Pauline White ard Miss
Leda White who is in training as a
Mrs. J. C. Workman died at her
home here on Saturday evening after
a few days' illness and the deepest
sympathy is for the family so sud
denly bereaved. About a week ago a
pimple appeared on her face near
the mouth, and in two or three days
it appeared infected, and this spread
so rapidly that her condition was
critical, and bio ?d poison developing,
the end soon came. Everything possi
ble was done to save her and friends
and neighbors were y.v^J?nd and.
symp?thetic and helped to minister
to her. Mrs. Workman was a beauti
ful Christian character and a mem
ber of the Baptist church. She was
of a loving and gentle disposition, a
kind friend to all and was a devoted
mother. Besides her husband are
left three children, Mr. Charlie
Workman, Miss Emmie Workman
and little Mildred Workman. Mrs. Al
bert Lott was her sister, and she had
several brothers who resided near
Cross Hill and at Newberry, and all
of these were at her bedside. On Sun
day morning, the body was carried,
on the train, to Cross Hill, her girl
hood home, and interred by the
graves of her two sons. The funeral
services were conducted by Rev. W.
Mrs. Sallie Stanfield of Aiken has
been a guest in the home of her

during the latter part ofthe week.
Mr. and Mi*s. Percy Culbreath and
Messrs. Percy and Mellville Cul
breath of Tampa, Fla., have been
visiting in the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Harry C. Strother..
The litle son of Mr. and Mrs. Luke
Smith who suffered a sunstroke dur
ing the past very hot weather is now
considered out of danger. The little
fellow was unconscious two days,
and was in a very critical state.
Mrs. Sallie Rice Owen has return
ed to Bamberg after a visit to Mrs.
John Wright. She has been spending
the summer in the mountains.
. Mrs. James H. White returned on
Friday from a stay in the mountains
and with relatives at different points,
and is much improved in health.
Miss Ella Jacobs was enabled to
cast her vote here on last Tuesday,
through the kindness of the depart
ment of the school in Columbia
where she is teaching, having been
sent over in a car for this purpose.
Through the kind and patriotic
spirit of some of the gentlemen here,
a car was turned over to the teach
ers here in the school, one of Lees
ville, Batesburg and Lexington, and
they were driven to their homes and
thus enabled to cast their vote at
the second primary. ,
The friends of Mr . M. W. Crouch
are delighted to know that he is so
much improved and they hope that
he can soon be out with them again.
News has been received of the
marriage of Miss Florence Wright,
the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben
Wright which occurred recently at
their home at Tampa, Florida. Miss
Wright made many warm friends
during the three years she resided
here, and the best of wishes are
wafted to the happy young couple.

only relief, but now he is improving
and it is hoped that all danger is

out victorious this time.

guests began to arrive, the reception
continuing until 6:30.

the Governor, he has granted anoth

Mr. E. H. Folk, Jr., Writes ||
Very Interesting Letter
As is often the custom of thosel;
who leave the bounds of Edgefield to;;''
write letters back to the "Advert?s-, '
er," I feel that I should likewise tak?^
advantage of the opportunity 1,0''
write back my impressions of Geof-. '
gia, ("Gorgi" to a big per cent of;.'
the natives), gathered in the short...
space of some 48 hours.
From Augusta to Savannah by;;
the Central of Ga., R. R., there are
a number of fair sized towns thatfi
one would be unable to distinguish^
from any low country town in South; j
Carolina save for one vital factor-.,
that is the presence of hogs and lit
tle hoglets rooting contentedly iii;
the main and only street. Edgefield
may be noted for her dust and mud;
.Constantinople for her dogs; but the
average small town of Georgia;
stands preeminent in the matter oil
hogs promenading the streets.
From Savannah to Brunswick
there is scarcely a town one tenth"
the size of Trenton. Most of them are j
slightly smaller than Park Hill, which?
isn't very densely populated itself. I.
This town feels like an island; in
stead of water there is an interven
ing waste of swamp, lagoon and'
marsh. The woods have quite a trop
ical appearance. Tall cypress trees
and live oaks pennanted with gray
moss. In many of the swamps are-;
palmettoes which are especially beau

people, of whom some 300 or 2500' j
are now estimated; to be in bed with
"Break Bone Fever." This rather
cheerful ailment has effects, I am:
told, ,as follows: head aches worse ,
than after being- crowned with a
pumpkin; bones, back, arms, legs,;,j
etc., feel like they are going to pop :
"certain that you are going to die;
but you don't. Wonderful to relate!
Brunswick is one of the most beau
tiful places I have ever seen. The
streets are nearly all paved and the
public buildings set in groves of
live oaks are particularly impressive.
When I went down to the docks,
Brunswick is situated on an inlet
nine miles from the ocean, I was
struck with the expanse of marsh on
the other side of :he river-as far
as che eye could see is one level
green stretch of marsh. Here and
there you may see s. few white water
fowls contrasted against the billiard
table effect of the marsh. Sidney La
nier wrote famous verses entitled
"The Marshes of Glynn." (Brunswick
is in Glynn county.) Sometimes when
inspired I am going to help complete
that work by composing lines to the
"'Mosquitoes of Glynn."
Tonight on the hotel porch I met
a Mr. McCreary from Augusta, who
is a cousin of Mr. Willis Duncan. We
spent a very pleasant hour together,
or at least I did, talking over ac
quaintances. This was the first
chance in two days that I had talked
with anyone from near home. He
asked me what "line" I was "hand
ling." And I told him that I was go
ing to handle a rather out of date
article, in short, Latin.
Well, even "break borie fever"
doesn't last as long as this iftter.

Governor Issues Order for
. Henry Smith.
Governor Harvey yesterday direct
er Supervisor Askew of Union coun
ty to repossess himself of Henry
Herry Sniith, paroled prisoner, and
place him on the chaingang to com
plete his sentence. Smith's parole ex
pired August 1, but was extended 90
days by Governor Harvey.
Recently Smith was fined $10 for
being drunk and disorderly, the
chief executive was advised, and af
ter an investigation he advised the
supervisor to take charge of the
man. Smith was convicted of violat
ing the prohibition law in Union
county in the spring of this year
and sentenced to serve eight months.
He was paroled during good behav

Miss Florence Mims Compares
Newest Western State
t With Oldest Eastern
v.. I came not long ago, from about
the newest Western State to the old
est'Eastern State, and the vast dif
ference betwen them, is not in im
agination and literature alone, but
tn. the surest reality.
.The one resembles'wood, new
felled and rough hewn, and the other
jp like the most highly polished ma
hogany, wanting nothing to perfect
?, except perhaps the worth added
Ra few more years,
? The ancestors of these people
pioneered in frail boats across the
atlantic, as the Westerners blazed
a trail in "Prairie Schooners" over
yhe plains. The people of New Eng
land are the descendants of pioneers,
while many of the inhabitants of the
W,est are the pioneers themselves.
??nd that is where the vast differ
ence comes in. Blazing trails has
gone out of style in "these parts."
2?T'Tw? England has progressed to the
decollete gown and the cut away
coat civilization, while the West is

' I have actually sat in an audience
of Western people and pointed out
to a friend in thc next seat, a man
and woman whom I knew were pion
eers, who were associated with the
clod and with the dugouts that were
the first Western homes.
?rjHere, I have looked around me and
seen people that seemed made of
culture. You feel that the recipe for
their kind is polish, plus refinement,
pius courtesy, and so on, mixed in
proper proportions, that somehow to
try to improve .them would be, "to
paints the lily, to gild refined gold or
pour--perfume on the violet." Both
?ypes.,are all right. I am not compar
two to the. disparagement of
process of evolution. The East sim
ply began earlier and the present
generation is not to be credited with
the early start.
What I really am leading up to
is the difference in the state of mind
of each which after all, is the most
important thing about any people.
For "as a man thinketh in his heart,
so is he."
The West (and when I use that
term ? mean the middle West, par
ticularly Oklahoma,) has not yet
learned that business is the means
through which we earn a livelihood,
that it is not life itself, that material
progress is not self development,
but only a back ground for it, that
Democracy isn't calling every man
your friend and inviting him to your
home whether you are congenial with
him or not. Demovracy is something
bigger than that, something m,ore
Someone has said that "Education
in a Democracy must average
teach the high to come down, the
humble to rise and all of us to walk
together." That is what Democracy
itself should do.
The Easterner has pioneered, and
known the bad and good of pioneer
ing, has built firms and handed
them down from father to son, has
made plans and seen them succeed,
and made others and seen them fail,
has tasted the bitter and the sweet
of life for generations, and the
knowledge of the keen edge of joy
and failure, have settled down to
their respective places in his mind.
Then he has an introspective glance
and found that consideration for the
other man is pretty nearly as impor- ;
tant as consideration for oneself.
My friends, that is what's so good ,
about the South and the East, the .
courtesy which characterizes both. ?
The Westerner has all sorts of ?
good thoughts in his heart, but he is ,
an amateur as yet, and doesn't know ?
the technique of self expression. The .
Westerner does the obviously polite t
thing, and does it awkwardly, as (
though he fumbled in his pocket for
his book of etiquette to find the right
thing to do, and then had left his
glasses at home, and couldn't read it
The Easterner is polite with a ,
suaveness and smoothness of perfec- (
tion denoting long practice.
The Southerner, bless his heart,
loes all the Easterner does, and does
t better-with style.
Bostonians may be conservative
n poliitcs and in customs, but they
ire broad in their ideas of courtesy.
Kindness has a good effect on the
loer of the deed, and is an inspira
ion to the recipient of it. Like
nercy, it blesses him that gives and
lim that takes./

most Sunday schools.
Our neighborhood has settled
down to business. Everybody is busy
now endeavoring to harvest and take

a hard winter for us. A good rule is
to make the best of every day as it
comes; think less about ourselves and
this world, and prepare for the life
to come. Then we would have little
time to worry about weather condi
