Card of Thanks -
I desire to express my sincere
thanks to my neighbors and the pub
lic generally for the faithful service
rendered , when my house was
threatened with destruction by fire
Sunday afternoon. But for their
timely assistance my home would
now be in ashes. Again I wish to
express my profound gratitude.
Mrs. Ida F. Sheppard.
Colored Firefighters Commend
The Advertiser must not let this
opportunity pass without commend
ing the colored people of Edgefield
for responding so generally to fire
alarms and for rendering such
valuable service after reaching a
fire. While Mrs. Sheppard's home
was threatened with destruction
Sunday afternoon the faithful ser
vice that was rendered by the color
ed men came directly under the
writer's observation, and we com
mended some of them for it at the
time. Though they had absolutely
nothing at stake, the colored men
worked as valiantly as did the white
men, at times risking their lives and
damaging their clothing. We do not
l-elieve that there is any place in the
country where the two races live
together more harmoniously than
right h?re in Edgefield. May this
always be true! Whenever the col
ored people of Edgefield have ap
pealed to their white friends for aid
in time of misfortune, sickness or
death in their homes, the latter have
always shown their friendship by
generous aid and we are pleased to
see that the colored people are dis
posed to reciprocate whenever op
poriunity arises.. It portends well
for the future.
Pianos on Easy Terms.
Do not fail to read the liberal
*erms on which yon can now buy
pianos from Holland Bros. They
ire direct factory representatives,
md are selling for the manufaetur
>r. The manufacturers have finan
cial means to extend the most liber
al terms that may be desired.
Any piano at two hundred and
nifty dollars and under can be
bought on payments of six dollars
pee month. From two h:mdrcd and
.fifty to three hundred dollars at
seven dollars per month. Price
from three hundred dollars to three
hundred and fifty at eight dollars
per month. Price four hundred
dollars at ten dollars per month.
There is absolutely no difference be
tween cash and time except six per
cent interest on the money on all
deferred payments. The factories
have all the money. 'hey need to
carry on their business, and do not
make;great concessions in order to
get cash. They have placed their
pianos at the bottom price and are
selling direct to the customer
through their representatives.
Beautiful iron and enameled b.'ds

Ramsey & Jones. ,
For Supt. of Education.
I hereby announce myself a can
didate for re-election to the office of
Superintendent of Education of
Edgefield County, subject to the
rules of the Democratic primary,
and solicit the support of the voters
of Edgefield county. If elected, I
pledge myself to a conscientious
discharge of the duties of the office.

Very Valuable Estate.
The Terrell Smith estate has
been splendidly managed by Mr.
Orlando Sheppard for Connie Max

Sheppard his already realized $15,
000 from the estate and has the
home tract of 320 acres yet unsold.
This will easily sell for ?5,000,

Celebrated Eleventh Birthday.
Saturday afternoon last the ele
gant country home of Mr./and Mrsy
Manly DeLoach presented a scene
of unusual gaiety and. merriment,
the occasion being the celebration
of the eleventh birthday of sweet
little Emmie, the eldest daughter of
tjhis happy home circle. The eleven
candles that beamed so brightly
upon the little company bespoke
the age of the queeuly little hostess.
Many little folks from the surround
ing community uer J honored with
invitations and a hippier afternoon
they haye never experienced, all
doubtless wishing that little Em
mie's birthday came every week.
After participating in many games
delicious refreshments were served.

Often The Kidneys Are -
* Weakened by Over-Work,
Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood.
Weak and unhealthy kidneys are re
sponsi bl? for much sickness and sufferi ng,
therefore, if kidney
trouble is permitted to
continue, serious re
sults arc must likely
io follow. Your other
organs may need at
tention, but your kid
neys most, because
they do most and
should have attention
first. Therefore, when
your kidneys arc weak or out of order,
you can understand how quickly your en
tire body is affected and how every organ
seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or "feel badly," begin
taking the great kidney remedy, Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root. A trial will cou
vince you of its great merit.
The mild and immediate effect of
Swamp-Root, thc -great kidney 3nd
bladder remedy, is soon realized. It
stands the highest because its remarkable
health restoring properties have been
?proven in thousands of the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
?hould have thc best.
