The Advertiser's Course Commended.
The editor of The Advertiser has
been very generally commended for
reluming the "soft answer", last week
to Mr. W. G. Ouzts' tirade upon the
. editors of the local papers, instead of
bringing so grave a matter to the low
plane of personal abuse, thus becloud
ing and detracting from the issue.
We severely condemned Mr. Ouzts
and Mr. Watson for becoming so affil
iated and allied with Joe Tolbert and
his crowd as to be included in the offi
ciai list of delegates to the Republican
.convention, and Mr. Ouzts had the op
portunity last week of explaining his
connection with the matter to the sat
isfaction of our people, had he such" an
explanation, but instead of pulling him
self out of the hole in which he alone
thrust'himself he made bad matters
worse. Mr. Ouzts and Mr. Watson
were offended with the newspapers for
giving publicity to the matter when, as*
a matter of fac? the offense, if any
were committed, was committed by the
?erson who placed their names? on the
original official list of the convention as
published in The State, we mean the
one which was declared official before
the list of delegates Was juggled with.
One man said to us, "If my name had
been put on a list of delegates to a Re
publican convention, I would shoulders
shotgun and huni up the man who put
it there." Nobody has yet heard of
Mr. Oozts or Mr. Watson shouldering a
shotgun and hunting for the person
who put'their names on the li?t of del
egates to Tolbert's convention.
Let Wiley Ouzts and Alex Watson,
and every [other wavering Democrat,
know, here and now, once and for al),
that they cannot "stand in" with Tol
bert and with the people of Edgefield
county at the same time.
Determined , to Establish a
The mass-meeting which was held
in the court house Monday night
looking. to the , establishment of a
creamery in Edgefield was well at
tended, Ropers, Trenton and other
jout of town communities being rep
resented. There was a general discus
sion, both pro and con, but the over
whelming preponderance of senti
ment was in favor of establishing a
.creamery at Edgefield. It will supply
a need in this crisis that nothing
else can or will supply. Mr. Cushman,
Clemson's representative, whose ad
dress, by the way, was somewhat of
a. disappointment to many present,
rather discouraged the enterprise.
JMr. Hazel, the proprietor of the
.Batesburg creamery; was present and
of course favore the shipping of
.cream by the farmers of this county
to his creamery, but the fact that he
:is now making a succss of his enter
prise indicates that a like success
can be mad? at Edgefield .Mr. Bal
antine, the manager of the Bank of
Weitem Carolina, at Batesburg, was
present and his practical, to-the
point remarks were encouraging,
showing what benefit to the farmers
of that section the Batesburg cream
'ery has been. One established at
.Edgefield will be of as great benefit,
or even more, to the farmers of our
Mr. Hazel stated that a creamery
'will be operated at a loss unless it
receives sufficient cream to make 1,
,000 pounds of butter per week. He
"has steadily increased the volume of
his business to that quantity..-: He
statedAhaf Mr. H. H. Sanders of our
county is his ?largest regular shipper
Mr. B. T. Lanham was present
Monday night but did not partake
the discussion, but he told The Ad
vertiser's representative Tuesday
that he had made a careful estimate
and found that the farmers of
Horn's Creek and Ropers, in the ag
gregate, carry 500 pounds of butter
to Augusta every week, a distance of
from 17 to 20 miles. So it becomes
evident that if this cream could be
diverted to an Edgefield creamery,
which would have to be transported
a distance of only from 5 to 9 miles,
?dgefield could begin, including Mr.
Sanders and the cream shipped from
Trenton, with almost as mueblas Mr.
Hazel is now receiving at Batesburg
one year after hs began operatior
There is much encouragement
those who are back of th?' enterp
and they will not let up until
creamery is established. Hon. M.
Wells who was chairman of

devoting much time and effort to
enterprise was authorized to appi

Mt. Canaan Association. Pass
We read in Ephesians 5 chapter,
16 verse \. "Redeeming the time be
cause the days are evil." We view
with/ ah., n the great' migration of
our people from the farms . to the
cities and towns, especially the
.Northern cities and towns. Unless
we continue to .cultivate the-land
and make it bring forth its fruits
for our sustenance and comfort we
must suffer and slip backward. We
deplore this unrest and discourage
ment among our people. We, tjhe
Ministers,^ Teachers and Deacons of
this associations desire to put our
selves o]a record as bitterly opposing
this migration. /\
Resolved first, We will begin a vig
orous campaign in our field of labor
and communities against this mi
gration from the. farm. We pledge
ourselves to do all in our power to
quiet and encourage our people to
stay on the farm., -ft'^M
- Second, We appeal to land owners
and merchants and the business .men
to help us to stay this movement f5r
we know all will suffer if this move
ment is hot stopped.
Third, We look with alarm upon
the many hundred uncultivated
farms and the deserted churches in
our territory. We believe these con
ditions can be changed if we all will
work and cooperate together and set
tle this unrest and save,the farm and
Fourth. We appreciate the fact
that the land owners the merchant,

times, but we must cooperate and

Sparks Circus at'Greenwood.
Sparks World Famous Shows are ;
hilled to exhibit at 'Greenwood, Sat-1
urday," October 14, and' from the
newspaper reports preceding them
their exhibition will be worth going
many" miles to witness.
< r0f the many features carried by j
the show this season,- some of the
Animal Acts are without doubt the
most wonderful and . thrilling ever j
presented to an American .audience.
The big group of fighting forest-bred |
lions/.all full grown males,^give an
?xhibition that is full of. thrills, and
the audiende is left with a positive
feeling of awe at man's wonderful
mastery over the brute creation;
Another extraordinary feature
with the show is Capt. Tiebor's
troupe of educated Seals and Sea
Lions. These interesting sea animals
perform the most seemingly impos
sible feats; balancing chairs, umbrel
las and whirling brands bf fire while
climbing ladders, walking tight ropes
and riding the backs of galloping
horses. This feature baffles descripr!
tion and must be seen to be. appre
"Many other, wonderful'things are to.]
be seen with: this .mammoth show, and
the main ' performance beneath the
ba rents will present a ,number of
the most ^marvelous foreign acts of

ried with the show is complete in
every detail, and contains rare and
curious specimens of the earth's most'j
interesting and curious animals.
A mile long street parade of daz

handsome horses, interspersed with
three brass bands and a steam sap]
