Surely the Baraca boys and their

Valuable Merchandise Stolen.
Friday night one or more persons
entered the store of Stewart & Ker
naghan and stole a considerable quan
tity of valuable merchandise. The
building was entered through one of
the rear windows, an iron bar that
held the window being removed.
Among the things that were taken
form the store were two -Parker guns,
one Remington automatic gun, two
Winchester rifles, two pump guns
and two Essex single-barrel guns.
Practically all of the cutlery from
the show cases was carried away and
a large quantity of loaded shells
were taken by the robbers. It is prob
able that other things were also re
moved. In a large hardware stock
such as Stewart & Kernaghan carry
it would not be an easy matter to mis*,
smaller articles. Up to this time no
trace of the robbers has been found
but surely they will be apprehended.
It should not be possible for any man
or set of men to steal and dispose of
merchandise such as was stolen Fri
day night without leaving some clue
behind. They should be apprehend
ed and punished to th<; full extent of

Highly Appreciated Letter.
The following is a highly appre
ciated letter from an Edgefield busi
ness man. Such expressions, 'as well
as such enclosures, help to smooth
the rough place in one's pathway :
Mr. J. L. Mims, Editor
Edgefield, S. C.
My Dear Mr. Mims:
Until I read the appeal to delin
quents in your issue of last week, it
had never occurred to me to notice
the date upon address of my paper to
show when I should pay up for the
"best weekly in South Carolina."
Now I have certainly enjoyed a great
deal of free reading at your expense,
for I find from my copy of The Ad
vertiser that my subscription expired
the twenty-second of last January.
You are a very patient and indulgent
My check is enclosed for $4.00
which will pay my subscription until
January 22, 1924.
Both Edgefield Teams are
Friday early in the noon the
girls' basketball team s football
team of the McCc. school
arrived to play the 1. eu teams.
Promptly at 2:30 o'clock the game of
'basketball was played on the school
campus between the visiting girls and
the Edgefield , girls. The game was
good from start to finish, the score
being 12 to 8 in favor of Edgefield
Those who witnessed the game have
pronounced it the best of the season.
Immediately following the basket
ball game the football contest was
held on the athletic field. Our boys
had an easy victory, as the score, 64
to 0, shows. Much of the time the
members of Edgefield's second team
played and still McCormick was un
able to make a score. The outstand
ing feature of the game was the
splendid playing of Edward Peak.
Mr. T. B, Greneker won fresh laurels
for himself also as a referee. The
coach of the McCormick football
team said Mr. Greneker was the best
referee he has seen this season. We
congratulate the Edgefield boys upon
their sweeping victory, and also our
girls upon their excellent playing.
They go to Aiken tomorrow to play
the high school team there.
? Card of Thanks.
We desire to give expression to our
deep appreciation of the thoughtful
kindness of our neighbors, friends
and the people of Edgefield gener
ally. Their sympathy, beautiful flow
ers and many kind attentions to us

we are passing on account of the
death of our beloved son and broth
er, Wallace Prescott, we shall never
