Judge DeVore Indulgent
Judge DeVore is not only an ex
cellent lawyer and dispenser of jus
tice, buta kindhearted, unselfish
gentleman. While he had to "sweat'*
it out in his official judicial robe
while court was in session, he gave
the jurors and newspaper reporters
the privilege of laying aside their
coats and make themselves as com
fortable as they could when the
heat in the court hon-c was almost
unendurable. It is needless to say
that the recipients of Judge De'
Vore's consideration appreciated it
and availed themselves of it with
alacrity.-Orangeburg Press and
.'Follow Thou Me."
Rev. P. P. Blaiock filled tbe pul
pit of the Baptist church Sunday
morning last, selecting as his text
these words of the Saviour, "Follow
Thou me." Mr. Blaiock developed
his theme along helpful and practi
cal lines, the scripture which he ex
pounded and the truths to which he
! gave utterance being easily applica
ble to the lives of those who heard
his very excellent discourse. He
spoke throughout with his accus
tomed earnestness i;nd fervor. Mr.
Blalock's Edgefield friends were
glad of this opportunity to hear
Mr. Ouzts Appointed.
Mr. J. P. Ouzts has been duly ap
pointed as postmaster to succeed
the late Capt. W. H. Branson. He
went to Washington Friday to file
his bond and returned Saturday
with his commission. Mr. Ouzts for
mally took charge cf the office
Tuesday morning, having appoint
ed Capt W. A.. Collett assistant
postmaster. Mr. Ouzts' appointment
has met with very general satisfac
tion. He is a good business man and
will manage the affairs in a manner
that will be acceptable to both Un
cle Sam and the patrons of the
Visited Paper Mill.
Mr. S. T. Williams was in town
Monday for the first time since his
recent stay in the mountains, and it
was exceedingly interesting to hear
him speak of the paper mill which
he visited near Asheville. It con
sumes 31 cords of wood each day in
making a coarse heavy paper. The
acid that is extracted from the
wood as it is being converted into
pulp is collected in ranks and ship
ped to western tanneries to be used
in tanning hides. The entire plant
covers 14 acres and represents an
investment of $5,000,000.
Meeting of Rosebud Club.
The members of th Rosebud clnb
held their regular weekly meeting
at the home of Miss Helen Dorn
Thursday afternoon. The little hos
tess had arranged a miscellaneous
grogrammo which was thoroughly
enjoyed by all of the members pres
ent. In a guessing contest the first
prize was awarded to Miss Florence
Miras and the second prize to Miss
Willie Peak. At the close of the
contest refreshments were served.
Instead of holding the regular meet
ing next Thursday, the members of
the club will give a picnic, this be
ing the last of the season.
Seed Likely to Advance.
Mr. W. E. Holston, the oil mill
man, spent Saturday and Sunday in
Edgefield. Owing to Mr. Holston's
experience, close observation and
conservative judgment, what he
says upon the oil and seed outlook
for the season can be received and
depended upon as expert testimony.
He says the' seed supply has been
cut short considerably and that oil
shows some advance, with the pros
pect of continued advance, which
means that seed will likely com
mand a higher price later.
Monthly Meeting of W. C. T. U.
On Monday afternoon September
llth, 1911, the ladies of the W. C.
T. U. met at the home of Mrs. Ma
Notwithstanding the fact, that
we had thunder, lightning and rain
at that hour, a goodly number of
our ladies were present, and we had
a very helpful meeting.
' A nice program had been arrang
ed by Mrs. Beauregard Timmons,
who presided over the meeting with
Mrs. Greneker read a paper: "Do
weak hearts need alcohol."
"Do alcoholic liquors aid diges
tion," was read by Mrs. Lott
"Is coco-cola a harmless drink"
was read by Mrs. Tillman.
A very interesting and instructive
talk was made by Mrs. Tillman on
the W. C. T. U. work at Chautau
qua, New York, where she spent
five weeks this summer.
Mrs. Minis, our president, not
being able to be with us, had a very
sweet and encouraging letter, read
by Mrs. Lott. Her words are al
ways "fitly spoken" and enjoyed by
all, because she has the love and
confidence of us all. If all our
members worked as she does onr
Union would be much stronger.
It being the time for election of
officers for another year, the follow
ing were elected, Mrs. J. L. Miras,
President; Mrs. Greneker, Vice
President; Mrs. Hugh Wates, Sec
retary ; Mrs. W. L. Dunovant, Cor.

and winning ways made us all feel

The Very Worst
Clement J. Driscoll, at a dinner
in New York, told a number of
amusing stories about his strenuous
life as a commissioner of weights
and measures last year.
"A friend of mine," said Mr.
Driscoll, "noticed one morning that
his grocer looked very sad.
"What's the matter, old man?"
my friend asked jokingly, "The
weights and measure man hasn't
been dropping in on you has he?"
Yes, he has," snapped the gro
"But you don't really mean to
say," exclaimed my friend, that he
caught yon giving only 15 ounces
to the pound?"
"Worse than that!" groaned the
grocer, I've been giving 17!"
