. While the e'ditor of Tue Adver
tiser was shaking bands with
friends in the great throng at Mc
Keodree on Sunday last Borne one
remarked?"Are you a caudidatp,
-?oo?"? We replied with an em
phatic "No." In the first place, we
have no political aspirations, pre
ferring rather to pursue the eveu
tenor of our .way "far from the
madding crowd." In the second
place, observation has taught ue
tbat'it is the part of wisdom for
a newspaper man to stay out of
politics of every kind whatsoever.
It is unquestionably true that in
a vast majority of cases when
the editor of a newspaper outers
the political arena, his influence,
and the influence of his paper as
well, suffer to somaextent, However
we do not wish to be understood
as discouraging or disparaging;
those of other 'professions and
callings who aspire to enter pub
lic life, for it. is a worthy and
?Bao? .i. .* ..
very laudable ambition.
In this connection, we wish to
express our sincere appreciation
to scores of our friends in all
parts of the county for their es
teem and confidence in urging us,
both in person arid by letters to
become a candidate for the House
of Representatives. .
Vagrancy Cause of.Crime.
In commending' The Adverti
ser's editorial of last week on
"Put the Vagrants to Work,"
Judge James W. DeVoro express
ed the opinion that lack of en
forcement of the vagraut law in
South Carolina is the cause of
much of the crime that is com
mitted. Judge DeVor'e said that
. in his charge to the grand jury
during the recent special term of
court in Lexington, he stated that
the real cause of the muruer of
Mrs. Ellisor by the Tolan negroes
could be traced to the non-en
forcement of the vagrant law.
Had the perpetrators of this foul
murder, who were vagrants of the
moBt "objectionable type, been
'forced either to work upon a farm
or upon the publio roads, they
would not have been roaming
over the country upon a mission
of robbery and murder. *
In this position Judge De Vere
is unquestionably right. ? large
per cent of the criminal class,
whether in town or country,
comes from the ranks of the un
employed. Therefore, the enforce
ment of the vagrant la*w will not
only facilitate tbs work of the
farmers and other lines of busi
ness, but will to some extent pre
vent the commission of crime.
Every rural community and
every town-Edgefield included-^
has & shiftless, idling class. If
these people will not work of their
. own motion, let's enforce the law
against vagrancy and put them to
filling up some of the holes in the
. public roads.
Supervisor Self could use'sev
eral hundred vagrants to advan
. tage right now.
A Bit of Church History.
> Tho writer has frequently won
dered why McKendreo was oc
casionally , called Sleepy Creek
church, and on Sunday last WP
learned a bit of church history
that explains the dual name of the
- church. While engaged in con
versation with Dr. W. D.
Ouzts, who can converse very in
terestingly and intelligently upon
almost any subject, we were ?u.- i
formed that when the pioneer]
Du'ch settlers planted their colo-j
ny in what is- now known as the
McKeijdree, section they estab
lished a Methodist church about
midway between Pleasant Laue i
and McKeudree and called it
Sleepy Creek church! It seems to
have been the custom of mauy of
our Cbriatiau forefathers to name
their churches after some nearby
Btream ; hence, Sleepy Creek,
Stevens. Creek, Mountain Creek",
Horn's Creek and Rocky Creek
churches in this county.
The original. Sleepy Cruek
church was constructed of logs,
the material-of which all of the
buildings of the pioneer settlers
were constructed. After the topee
of years anew and, preuumably,
larger' house of worsbij) being
needed, the present McKeudree
church was erected. A new loca
tion, about two miles east of.the
old mother church, was selected
and the new church, was called
McKendree, being named for a
minister who was serving the cir
cuit at that time. Through babi.t,
many persons for years afterwards
called the new church Sleepy
This bit of church history,
will explain to the younger gener
ation why McKendree church is
sometimes called by two names.
Graded School Closed.
The Pession of 1907-08 of the
Edgefield Graded School closed
with very appropriate exercises oil
Thursday morning. Without omit
ting a single lesson, Mrs". Grenek
er, Misa Jennie. Pattison and M?SF
Hortense Padgett, the teachers of
the first five grades, much to their
credit and to the childreu as well,
arranged a beautiful program
which was faultlessly carritti out.
Quite a number of parents ard
several of the trustees wpre de
. The following is the program:
Song of Greeting.

Mims, Mell Burgess, Annie Mf.y
Timmous, Lucile Chappell. Nega
tive: Rainsford Cantelou, Eldred
Simkins, Glover Lowe, Irene Par
"Fifth Grade :
zie Roper, Evelyn Edmunds and
Ruth Lyon. \
At the couclusion of the pro
gram, Col. F. N. K. Bailey made
a brief statement conserving th*
graded school. He commended
the teachers for their v?ry faith
ful service, stating that in his
opinion more satisfactory work,
taken asa whole, had been done
this year in the graded scboo
than ever before. He said that
the corps of teachers had be^n
enlarged each year as the pablic
funds warranted, and that au
other teacher will be added next
Some uninformed persons are
of.the opinion that Col. Baily re
ceives a portion of the public
money for superintending the
graded school. This is not the
case. As he stated on Thursday,
Col. Bailey does not receive a pen
ny for bis work in superintend
ing the public school, every dol
lar being usedtopay the teachers.
The date in September for the
opening of the next session will
be announced later.

After tho Sunday school was
over, Rev. J. C. Roper, presiding
elder of the Cokesbury district, ?
preached a very timely ard prac
tical sermon upon tbe "Parable of
the Talents." Although the. bour.e t
was literally packed, almost two .
deep in iome of the seats, and the
perspiration trickled freely down ?
one's anatomy, the speaker held .
the close and sympathetic atlen- j
tion or the audience.
.At the conclusion of the ser
mon the sacrament of the Lord's
Supper was very beautifully ob- 1
Next came the social feature of i
the day-an adjournment of two i
hours for dinner. Very boon after I
the church was vacated, the
throng gathered about the score I
or moie of heavily laden tables
that were arrauged about the !
church yard. And if the table to 1
which it was the writer's good
fortune to be escorted is to be
taken as a sample of the dinn-r
at McKeDdree, we might write i
columns about it and then the
half would not have been told, i

Kendree mother. No doubt the-e
were moro people present than the
housewives exp?ctfcd, yet after
everybody's appetite bad been
satisfied great bask^s full of nie
things were left.
When the congregation re-ap
sembled in the afternoon, ibo
Children's Day exercises were
held. Nearly a score cf bright lit
tle boys and girls took part iu ?he
beautifully arranged program of
marches, songs, recitations and
choiusoe,aud all of them perform
ed their parts very creditably.
There was one feature of the ex
ercises that was particularly beau
tiful and suggestive'of heavenly
things. About a dczen sweet little
girls kuelt i,u a-group about a
cross and sang softly and sweetly
.'Jesus keep me uear the Cross."
The beautiful flowers that were
arranged about the altar and
chancel brightened the loveliness
and heavenliness of this scene. At
the couclusioD of the regular pro
gram, Mr. J. L. Minas was called
on for a short talk.
Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Shaffer, Mr.
W. E. Turnerand others are/loi ug
a great work among the children

church, and it is to them tbat
those who enjoyed last Sunday's
