Success of Edgefield Young
Mr. Wallace Prescott, the son of
Mr. and Mrs. L. H. Prescott, is mak
ing a fine record in one of Green
wood's large cotton mills. .Although
he is but '21 years o?f age he" has,
during, the shorty, space of three
months that-he has been in Green
wood, been promoted to , assistant ?
superintendent of the weaving room^
Wallace applied himself very close
ly while working in. Edgefield and
attended Mr. Tucker's textile school ^
at night last fall. Hjs success proves
that there is always room at the top
for a young man who is willing to
apply himself. Our prediction is -that ^
Wallace Prescott has only begun to
rise/ Just watch his career. ~~ .

Big Circus in Augusta.
" Most interesting of all incidents on
circus day and which is, free to all
who wish to avail themselves of the
opportunity, is the arrival and unload
ing of three special trains bearing the
paraphernalia and animals for the
majestic Hagenback-Wallace Circus,
which is to exhibit in Augusta, Mon
day, October 16.
One must witness the unloading of
these-special trains to realize all^the
paraphernalia necessary for this
show to carry in order to present its
mammoth exhibition. And in the wit
nessing of this work one is declared
scarcely capable of realizing the
j skill necessary in loading and pack
j ing of the cars.
Every animal cage, every wagon,
every trunk,- every tent and every
piece of material must be placed in
an exact location. To have any article
vary an.^mch necessitates the re
loading of a car, it is said.
Mucli time and work is reported
devoted in the winter months in ar
ranging details. As the complete pro
gram?is arranged, work is commenced
in laying out the cars. As the open
ing date .draws near, the workers are
drilled iii the loading .of.'the para
phernalia. -Every workman has his
exact duty to perforar* and it must
be done like: clock-work. Every ar
ticle mast be placed ata definite mo
ment. ? f< t
'It is assumed that in no industry
is as much material placed on thr?e
!speci?l trains as is carried on the
cars bearing the Hagenback-Wallace
The exhibition will be given on the
circus lot at; Augusta and . a-down
town ticket office will be opened dur
