Card of Thanks.
We tender our sincere thanks, and appreciation to our neighbors and friends for their kind attention and loving sympathy during illness and death of my beloved wife. J. C. Lowrey and Family. An Explanation. In last week's paper there was published the substance of a sermon which I gave, by request, to the editor. I want to say that I am not responsible for the headline, "Able sermon." This was the contribution of my friend, the editor. Owing *o the fact that my initials were at tached, one might think and justly so, that I was rather egotistic, with out explanation. E. C. B. Presented Play on Lawn. Last Friday night one of Shakespeare's plays was presented on the college lawn in Greenville by the class of expression of the G. F. C. The Greenville News was lavish in its praise of the perform ance, calling especial attention to the very excellent manner in which Miss Gladys Rives performed her part. Miss Gladys possesses unusual gifts as an elocutionist, which would enable her to present the most diffi cult part in a highly creditable man ner. Musical at Trenton. Friday night next beginning at 8 :30 o'clock the music department of the Trenton High School will give a recital in the school audito rium.

Mr. Joe Brunson, one of the Edgefield Kransons who strayed off to Aiken some years aero, spent last week swapping yarns, fighting mos quitoes, and incidentally catching a few fish up on Beaver Dam. His an nual visits to Iiis brothers are always enjoyed by his Edgefield friends and relatives as well as by himself. Mr. Brunson >tops in town both going and coming, meeting with his friends here. His visits to The Advertiser are always thoroughly enjoyed. He attended the Memorial exercises Saturday and mingled with the old soldiers, which added to their pleasure as well as to his own. Mr. Brunson, The Advertiser suggests that you make your fish ing excursions quarterly instead of annually. . i Kenrick-Lamb Marriage.

Sheppard, R. A. Marsh. Service at Gilgal. Rev. John A. Holland will preach at Gilgal next Sunday morn ing instead of Rev. P. P. Blalock. As Mr. Blalock has been connected with the S. CC. I. faculty, and the commencement this year is the last one to be held in Edgefield he thought it best to attend the com mencement exercise next Sunday morning, and for that reason re quested Mr. Holland to fill the Gil gal pulpit for him. Mr. Holland is an interesting speaker and we are confident that the congregation will enjoy hearing him next Sunday. Candidate For Re-election. Mr. J. G. Byrd announces his candidacy this week for re-election to the position of public cotton weigher for the town of Edgefield. He has served one term and durin: ?hat time has made a record to which he can point with pride. The position of cotton weigher is a very difficult one to fill, as the interests of the buyer and seller are both at stake and to give satisfaction in cases of wet or damaged cotton is not an easy matter. Mr. Byrd has .nade an honest effort to do justice to all, and so far a* we are informed has succeeded about as well as it is pos sible for mortal man to do. He asks for re-election upon the record he has made. Program Woman's Mission So ciety Baptist Church. Subject, The Great Southwest. "The Missionary, with his Bible was the Nation's Pioneer Man."

The further we get away the tight er grows the "cords of love" that bind us to Edgefield and Edge field county. Yet we would not re trace our steps. Christ and duty calls to far away fields of labor.

The continued drought is causing the farmer some anxiety in regard to getting a stand of cotton. The gardens tes need ram. We ha.e heard a good deal of complaint about the fruit crop being killed, but in this section there seems to be a very nice crop so far. The rural schools are closing now all over the county and each week sees the close of one or more.

Lexington, May 12.-George Bell Timmerman, solicitor of this cir cuit, is to-day in receipt of a letter from the deputy clerk of the United States court at Philadelphia in which he states that the United States district judge has overruled the motion of Joe Grant, the negro who is wanted in Edgefield county for the murder of J.

Mr. Timmerman felt confident all dong that the decision would be igain8t the negro and in favor of the State of South Carolina, and is just is confident now that he will win n the United States court of ap )eals> and that the detention of the kegro only means a stay of justice md that Grant will soon be brought >ack to this state to face trial at ?dgefield.
