The pickpockets will not reap
their usual harvest at the fairs this

the spare cash is yet in the cotton
fields and it is probable now that
some of it will remain there far

The streets of the town have been
well worked in many places since

streets very rough in many piases.

to report that he is now steadily
growing better. During his series of

Order of Friday's Parade
All who enter the parade Friday
afternoon are urged to assemble in
Mrs. Evans' Grove at two o'clock
marp. The parade will be formed
promptly at that hour by Capt. W.
A. Collett, the marshal of the day,
and proceed at once to the fair
grounds in the following order:
Procession on horseback
Decorated school wagons
S. C. C. I. senior class
Wagon of clowns

All who enter the parade are
urged to be at the Evans grove
promptly at the appointed hour.
Ordinance Should be Enforced.
The Advertiser seldom makes
suggestions to the town council but
the need for the enforcement of an
ordinance already existing, which
provides a penalty for leaving
horses standing . on the streets un
hitched, is so imperative that we
can not longer resist making the
suggestion that the seemingly dead
ordinance be revived and enforced.
When a driver leaves a buggy or
wagon standing in the street with
out hitching the horse the animal is
liable to bot?me frightened and run
away, causing other horses to be
come frightened also, possibly en
dangering life and damaging prop
Yesterday the writer saw two
mules that had been left by the
driver run with a wagon. The ani
mals were but little frightened at
first but became more and more
frightened as they ran. Suppose a
run away team should strike a bug
gy that is occupied by a lady or lit
tle child, which is liable to occur
on the streets of Edgefield any day,
very serious injury or loss of life
Let the ordinance be enforced.
