The petit jury for the second week court is published this week. A jury for the third week will be drawn next week. The Edgefield deabrs are selling new baggies right ulong. The high price of cotton is causing som? of the old vehicles to be discarded. The Daughters of the Confederacy will meet at the home of Mrs. M. A. Taylor Tuesday afternoon, Octo ber 21, at four o'clock. Miss Georgia May Wates has) been engaged to teach a school near Lake City. She left Saturday to enter upon her duties. Judging from the large quantity | of sweet potatoes that are being offered for sale on this market, the 1913 crop will be a good one. The demand for seed for green lots and cover crops has been so great that it has been difficult for j merchants to keep a supply. Mr. and Mrs. Carroll Cogburn are over from Atlanta spending a j few davs here with Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Cogburn. Surely there is enough corn in the county this fall for some old-time corn shuckings to be held. We have sot heaid of any in a long: time. Do you realize that the county | fair will be Jreld in less than a month? You naven't long now in which to plan exhibits. Better be gin at onec. Cotton seed meal is higher than last year and the indications are that it will advance still more, which means that commercial ferti lizers will be higher next year. The members of the Presbyterian church have had the church wired for electric lights. The Presbyteri an flock is comparativelv small but ,'they are active and progressive. The annual flower show will be Leid at Johnston Tuesday, Novem ber 4, and as usual a large number j of people from Edgeiield will at-1 end. FOR RENT: The Holstein place j near Antioch.

Zimmerman came down from Greer Friday and remained several days. He is held in very high esteem by the people of Edge field, which accounted for the many hearty handclasps which he receiv ed. Some farmers in the Colliers sec tion who have been in the habit of hauling cotton to Augusta are now bringing it to Edgefield. The mar ket with the highest price gets the cotton. That's why the public square here is crowded with cotton wagons almost every day. There are now 89 automobiles in the county. At least that number have been registered but it is proba ble that some of them have been discarded on account of wear. The numbers run as high as 90 but as thirteen was omitted, on account of the ill luck that is alleged to ac company it, there have been only 39 cars commissioned. Mr. J. Russell Wright of Jo! ston was a visitor iu Edgefield y terday. Mrs. Rosa John of Birmingh is here visiting her sister, M Elizabeth Cobb.

Wed not get one in time for the meeti of the Presbytery. Maybe we w get a modern little passenger s tion in time for the patriotic vi men who are coming early in I cember. This is ideal weather on the la cotton. As the acreage is qui large in this county, especially the clay section, it is very earnest hoped that the favoiable weath will continue. Mr. T. B. Lanham left Saturdi morning for his home in Medin Ohio. He stopped over in Gree ville to spend Sunday with h daughter, Miss Ethel Lanham, wi is a student of the Greenville F male oollege. Will not some one give attentic to the enclosure around the mom ment before the U. D. C. convet tion meets? It's well to have comp; ny sometimes to make a communit as well as the individual have "house cleaning." The last ginners report showi according to information furnishe by the census department, that u to September 25 thore were 4,87' bales of cotton ginned in Edgefiel county, while for the same tim last year only 3,318 bales ha been ginned. An item appeared in one of tl daily papers Monday to the effe< that Auditor D. W. Dent of Lej ington county was the first to mak his report to the Comptroller Get eral, while as a matter of fact Edg< field's very capable auditor, Mr. J R. Timmerman, made his repor early in September-just one mont before Mr. Dent made his. Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Holstein lei Sunday to spend two weeks in Nev York. While away Mr. Holsteii will purchase the Christmas holida; stock for the popular 6ture of Peni & Holstein. It is probable that be fore returning Mr. and Mrs. Hoi stein will make a hurried visit tc friends who reside neai Boston. Edgefield reluctantly gave up Mr J. H. P. Roper and his estimable family. They left last Thursday to make their home in North Au gusta. These good people are valua ble additions lo any community.

There it no more energetic man in the coun ty than Abney Parks. Mr. James Boone believes in carrying some product of the farm I with him to sell when he goes tc j town. Last Saturday he readily dis posed of a 130-pound hog which he killed and dressed before leaving home. Mr. Boone has sever il others which he will convert into cash in like manner. The roster of the newly formed companies of the Bailey Military Institute shows that the Edgefield boys are sharing largely in the hon ors. Our young friend Harold Snuggs, the eldest son of Rev. and Mrs. E. T. Snuggs who is an un usuallj bright boy, reports from the B. M. L for us. By reading The Ad vertiser, the parents of the Edge field boys can keep in touch with what they are doing. The most enthusiastic clover grower in the county is Mr. P. C. Stevens of Johnston. He is more en thusiastic over a clover cover crop than Johnston and Edgefield both are over the Augusta Trenton-Edge field-Columbia-Greenwood trolley lines.And you know that when Pierce Stevens gets heated up over any thing there is a good deal of heat there. But that's all right-he is converting a sand bed into a gold mine. Mrs. Alex Oczts united with the Baptist church Sunday fmoming by letter from the Rehoboth church. Mrs. R. S.

You can see what chance there is of another good one there; perhaps one in ten at the most. Bad paint is dearest; middling is dear; co6ts 2 or 3 times as much as the best. No matter about the cost a gallon that isn't it; the cost a square foot; the cost a. iob; better yet, the cost a year. There's a whole education in paint in this advertisement. Devoe. Stewart & Kernaghan sells it. Notice of Final Discharge, To All Whom These Presents May Concern: Whereas, Mrs. Ella L.

W. T. Kinnaird, J. P. C., E. C., S. C. ? Sept. 29, 1913-5t. Cheap Paint. There are 1,000 "cheap'' paints and a dozen really cheap ones.

After following the directions for an hour and twenty minutes he was through all danger." Sold by all dealers. Avoid Sedative Cough Medi cine. If you want to contribute direct ly to the occurrence of capillary bronchitis and pneumonia use cough medicines that contain codine, mor phine, heroin and other sedatives when you have a cough or cold. An expectorant like Chamberlain's cough remedy is what is needed. That cleans out the culture beds or breeding places for the germs of pneumonia and other germ diseases. That is why pneumonia never re sults from a cold when Chamber lain's cough remedy is used. It has a world wide reputation for itt* cures. It contains no morphine or other sedative.
