It is a reflection upon South Caroli

The overwhelming predominance of
girls among the. graduating classes of
the the graded schools of the state this
year is only a matter of "history re
peating itself." Sumter stands,alone,
a notable exception to the rule. Of
the graduates of the Sumter graded
schools there are 23 boys and 14 girls.
Major T. J. Lyon, commandant of
the South Carolina Co-Educational In
stitute, is being urged by a number of
his friends to become a candidate for
Adjutant and* Inspector General. Ma

Mot a Candidate.
Many very kinds friends-some by
letter, others in person-have recently
urged the editor of The Advertiser to
b ecome a candidate for the House of
Representatives, and while we greatly
appreciate these manifestations of es
teem and confidence, to all of them we
haye said, "No." Although a lauda
ble ambition in others, nothing would
be more distasteful to the writer than
a scramble for public office. We in
finitely prefer to pass our days pursu
ing the even tenor of our way in the
private walks of Ufe. Therefore, let
it bc known once for all that the editor
of The Advertiser is not seeking, nor
would he accept, legislative honors.

The outlook for additional railroad
facilities tor Edgefield grows brighter.
During the p?st twelve months sever
al leading business men of Greenville,
together with some northern capital
ists, have been formulating plans for
. the construction of an electric railroad
from Greenville" down the Savamiv.h
I valley to Greenwood. Several pros
pecting visits have been made to Edge
field, looking to a continuation of
the road from Greenwood to Augusta
by way of Edgefield.
Several days ago Mr. A. E. Padgett
received a letter from Mr. J. P.
Charles, secretary of the Greenville,
Greenwood and Augusta Railway Com
pany, in which he said among other
things: "Everything now looks en
couraging for the construction of our
road." Mr. Charles also stated that
he will soon come to Edgefield to look
after securing right of way for the
road. When he comes, let our citizens,
both of the town and country dis
tricts, give him the fullest and
There seems to be no question
about the fact that the proposed road
will be constructed to Greenwood, and
we believe that if the promoters meet
with sufficient encouragement it will
finally be continued to Augusta.
Very Profitable Union in Third
Division, Illness of Mrs. Sa
The union meeting of the 3rd
division of the Edgefield association
convened at Parksville Saturday
28th inst, agreeable to appoint
ment, and was a great meeting.
Contrary to expectations, on ac
count of the backwardness of thc
farmers and good seasons in the
ground, a fine congregation as
sembled to participate in the dis
cussions of the various subjects.
The enrollment showed represen
tatives from all the churches, whc
gave good encouraging reports
from their respective churches, a?
they were enrolled. The first query,
possibly, elicited the most interest,
which read: "Can a~ person believi
in the teachings of the new Testa
ment and oppose foreign mission
aries," Brethren H. E. Bunch, J
C. Harv ley. and E. G. Morgan, Sr..
and T. H. Garrett all made strong
and convincing addresses in favoi
of missions. In fact, the concensus
of opinion, among those who ex
pressed themselves, seemed to be
that in this enlightened age, all in
telligent Christians, [who were ?L
fact, as well as in name, believed ii
foreign missionaries. Parksville it
a missionary church in faith ano
practice, but we were of courst
glad to hear the discussion.
Brethren P. H. Bussey, T.G.
Talbert, . J. G. McKie and othen
talked interestingly on our "Socia.
hindrances," and "religion in the
home" with an occasional gooc
speech from our devoted pastors.
Kevs. L. B. White and T. H. Gar
Sunday morning the exercises.
were in the hands of Supt. J. M.
Bussey, which were interesting, and
at eleven o'clock a most interesting
cospel sermon was preached by
Rev. McDowell, of Ninety Six and
the able representative of the Bap
tist Courier. The collection taken
after the sermon amounted to
$13.50 and was given to state mis
Sunday afternoon was devoted to
B. Y. P. U. work, and Mr. W. W.
Fowler made an excellent speech
on the subject: "ls the B. Y. P. U.
worth while." He showed that with
out the spiritual and devotional
features, it was not, but with these
allied with the great layman's move
ments, it-waa doing1 and would ac
complish a grand work.
An excellent paper prepared by
Mrs. L. B. White on the ' relation
of the B. Y. P. ;U. to the church"
was read by Miss Martha Dorn. The
next paper: "Benefits to our j'oung
people of B. Y. P. U. work" was
prepared by Mrs. T. H. Garrett and
read by Miss Addje Bell, and elicit
ed much favorable comment.
- TheB. Y. P. U. outlook was
ably discussed by Brethren AV hite
and McDowell, which closed possi
bly the best and most interesting
session of this division.
The next meeting goes to Red
Oak Grove in July and we go back
to our work looking forward, to a
At night our B. V. P. U. held an
interesting session at which time,
Bro. McDowell gave us some good
advice, the subject being "Our re
lation to others."
We are sorry to report the seri
ous illness of Mrs. Sarah Parks,
widow of the founder of Parksville
who is in her 85th year. She is a
sweet old lady, whom everybody
loves and whom everybody calls
"mudder," out of respect and def
erence to her good, motherly qnull
ities. She told" tin' writer she was
simply awaiting thu summons, re

hope she may spared yet lo the

we feel safe in saying, that we had
the largett gathering on Sunday,
ever assembled in religious gather

the people could get in the house,
and the best of order prevailed.
Rev. Mr. McDowell is having
good luck in getting subscribers to
day for the Baptist Courier. "Nearly

intelligent and know a good \hing
when they see it. In fact a man1 who

R. F. D. Carriers Met.
Pursuant,to the call of the presi
dent, Mr. T. R. Denny, a small
number of the rural mail carriers
attended the meeting of the county
association that was held in the
court house Monday, May 30th.
But for the fact that" farmers are
very busy at this season, the attend

was an ideal one. The stage was
beautifully decorated and upon it
sat the teachers and the pupils of
the 10th and 11th grades, the min
isters of the town and the;school
trustees. Just before the services
began, the school in a body marched
in, each grade headed by the teach
er, and it was most interesting to
note the bright and animated faces
of the boys and girls. Dr. Snyder,
of Wofford colleg had been invited
to be present, and his remarks were
more oh the order of an address
coming from a layman, as he-ex
pressed it. His general theme was
the development of the mind, ma
terially, morally ana socially. DY.
Snyder is a very* scholarly speaker,
and was listened to by an apprecia

Farmers throughout the county
have their hands so full that they
scarcely know what todo first: Old
corn needs plowing, wheat and oats
are ripe, cotton is waiting to be put

be set out, corn should be planted

sufficient to keep farmers stirring

proves the worth of Doan's kidney

pleasure in confirming everything
I said in regard to Doan's kidney
pills in my former public statement,
given in 1903. I have not had oc
casion to use this remedy but once
since then. About a month ago I
felt a lameness in my back caused
by overlifling and I again began
using Doan's kidney pills. They re
moved the trouble at once and I
have not had a return attack. I can
