In Celebration of Education
Friday at one o'clock the Literary
Society of the Edgefield High School
gave the time for a discussion of Ed
ucational subjects, and on invitation
of Prof. W. 0. Tatum, Hon. James 0.
.Sheppard and Mrs. J. L. Mims were
present and spoke on two phases of
?the subject. Mr. Sheppard spoke first
and reminded the hearers of the
status of our state in the matter of il
literacy as at the bottom, but later
.encouraging data which gives South
Carolina the top place in having
changed the percentage of low fig
ures more than any other state in the
The students listened very atten
tively to Mr. Sheppard's remarks.
Mrs. Mims had been asked to talk
on Prohibition and Education, and
used the idea as to how education on
any subject may bring about great
results, taking the histroy of the pro
hibition movement, which has in
fifty years by education of the peo
ple brought the 18th amendment to
pass, and whatever the propaganda
of the opponents may be, the move
ment is successful. Evangeline Booth
who is head of the Salvation Army in
America says that if there is no im
provement in present conditions, the
passage of the 18th amendment is
the greatest thing our country has
December Meeting of U. D. C.
Mrs. Bettis Cantelou was hostess
on Tuesday afternoon for the meeting
of the Daughters of .the Confederacy.
An inclement afternoon did not deter
the members from taking advantage
of being entertained in this hospitable
lome, and enjoying the program.
Mrs. P. M. Feltham, president, was
in charge of the meeting, an d Mrs. B.
. 12. Nicholson read an appeal for the
raising of a monument in commemo
ration of The Crater Tragedy in Vir
ginia, there having been many South
Carolinians who went through *the
sufferings of that occasion, among
them, Mr. George B. Lake. The Edge
field chapter contributed towards this
fund at the State Convention in
Greenwood, in honor of Mr. Lake.
Plans were made to send a contri
bution of eatables to the County
Home at Christmas, the articles to be
sent to the home of Mrs. J. H. Cante
lou, whence they will be sent. All
^contributions should be sent in be
fore the 23rd. The names of all Con
federate veterans were mentioned,
and some remembrance will be sent
to them by the chapter.
A report of the State U. D. C. con
vention was given by Mrs. Woodson,
who was the only delegate from
Edgefield in attendance. Mrs. Wood
son read a beautiful poem written
3>y a lady from Summerville which

Fill a Stocking at De Ia Howe.
Did you know that you had an
empty stocking getting ready to be
hung under De la Howe's mantel
shelf? You may have more than that.
If you have none to hang from your
own, you may have as many as a
dozen or two out of the 109 over
there. Just imagine 109 empty stock
ings all in a row, and that many dis
appointed little folks, your Kittie
folks, and all on Christmas morning!
A sight to make the angels weep!
There are 19 boys and 20 girls
over there from 6 to 12 years of age;
13 boys and 19 girls from 12 to 14;
15 boys and 23 girls from 14 to 17.
Pick out yours and write Mr. J. B.
Branch, the superintendent at Wil
Bngton, S. C., that you will send
enough to fill your stockings-and
live happy ever after.
A small casa payment and our easy
terms on the balance would make the
purchase of a Ford car for your fam
