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

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

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

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

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
