Rev. Jofm Lake and wife, of
South China, were granted a fur
lough by the Board in order that I
they might come homo and recup-1

of workers at the front, they have
written that they will not come

A Sad Bereavement.
Mr.and Mrs.J. W.Alford,of Coving
ton, Ga., have recently come into
our midst, Mr. Alford having charge
of the installing of electric lights
in our town. On Saturday night
last their little girl, Elizabeth, who
has been ill for a week or more,
passed into the beyond, at the home
of Mrs. Marion Jones, where the
family were boarding. This dear
?little girl was at. the interesting age,
?being just five years old, and was a
beautiful child. Mr. and Mrs. Al
ford are left with one little boy,
strangers in Edgefield, and yet hav
ing a place in the hearts of the peo
ple. Many expressions of smpathy
have been heard, and though they
are not known personally to many
in Edgefield, they are recipients of
their condolence and prayers. On
Sunday afternoon at 5:30 o'clock
this little girl was laid to rest in the
cemetery at Edgefield, Rev. J. R.

A very interesting service took
place at the Baptist church on Sun
day afternoon when three members
of church, O. Sheppard, Esq., Mr.
W. B. Cogbnrn and Col. F. N. K.
Bailey were set apart as deacons of
the local church. Mr. Sheppard had
held this office in the church with
which he had previously been con
nected, and did not have to be or
dained, the other two, receiving the
laying on of hands.
Dr. T. M. Bailey and Dr. Dorset
were expected to be present on this
occasion, but were detained. It was 1
regretted that Dr. Bailey's health
interfered with his presence. Dr.
Dorset was detained on account of
Dr. Hatcher is greatly beloved in
Edgefield, and his coming was a
great joy to many. He was looking
remarkably well, and full of youth
ful exuberance. He will never grow
old. His address was on the ideal
deacon, and was a delightful inter
pretation of the scriptural require
ments for that important office. He
paid tribute to those who were
being made deacons, and made an
orginal and very interesting exhor
tation to tbem based on the six
abilities which he enlarged on,
viz: agreeability, adjustability, pre
sentability, honorability, service
ability and indispensability. This
unique way of presenting the ideas <
he had in mind, was extremely in
teresting. After the ordination ser- J
vice closed, all the members of the J
church as well as the officiating I
ministers went up and shook hands '
with the newly installed deacons,
and all the people took this oppor- f
tunity ot, greeting Dr. Hatcher ?

Cooperative Canneries to be ;
Established in South Caroli- '
Mr. W. W. Adams, J
Edgefield, S. C. . ;
Dear Mr. Adams:
traveling Imm. Agt. has interview- <
ed personally and by correspond- j
ence a man in Patterson, N. J., who
is anxious to start a small number
of co-operating canneries in South
Carolina. I might say Mr. Finster
has investigated and found this man ,
to be a thoroughly practical expert
along this line, and who means \
business. I ara writing you for in
formation on the status of canned (
goods supply in your town. Also to
ascertain if you have any truck -
growers, farmers, or business men
in your community who would be |
interested in the establishment of a
small cc operative cannery at your ?
.re going to try and estab- j
1' . number of these co operative
"ories with a central ware house
.nd selling point in the state. It is
our intention to have utilized large
ly surplus for canning.
We are starting on February <
12th, a tour of about fourteen towns :
in connection with this work. We !
hope to establish a factory requir- ?
ing a small amount of capital at i
each of these points. It is our inten- <
tion to visit your town February
16th and meet your local men in i
this proposition. Won't you give <
this prompt personal attention and <
interest as many growers and busi- \
ness men as r>ossible in this work; i
calling a meeting definitely for the j
above date at 11 a. m. I
It is imperative that we get busy ?
and get as large a representative
body of men as possible to attend
this meeting. You can see doubtless
without my mentioning it that the
season is rather late and it will re- 1
quire effort on our part to enable the
grower and all interested to get the I
most possible out of this undertak- 1
ing. Another thing, it is necessary i
to get this started to allow plenty 1
of time for ordering seed and is- <
suing instructions for handling of
crops. For the best results it will (
be necessary to obtain certain va- ?
rieties of vegetables and have these 1
distributed to all growers. By or- i
ganizing co-operatively we will be i
able to save considerable money for z
the growers in obtaining supplies. ?
Also impress upon peo.de you in- t
terview, the fact that the growers, c
being financially interested in the c
proposition, will be the ones to
benefit by co-operative buying. 1
Mr. Finster and myself intend to t
attend these meetings having with f
us where possible the expert man- i
ner interested, also Com. Agr. Wat- i
