WINNSBORO, S. C.
Wednesday, June 7, 1905
"Make hay while the sun
shines" is an old adage that is
full of wholesome truth. But
in order to have hav to cut
when the .sun is shining, it is
best to plant something for mak
ing hay. Therefore, be sure to
sow peas in abundance.
Notiing as yet has come of
the suggestion that steps be taken
for organizing a chapter of the
Daughters of the Confederacy at
this place. It will not do for
Winnsboro to be behind in honor
ing the veterans. It only remains
for some one to take the initial
The State summer school at
Clemson College promises to have
an enrollment of more than 500.
Applications for rooms have been
coming at a very rapid rate.
Those teachers. who propose to
take advantage of this opportu
nity for professional advance
ment should send in their applica
tion at once. Fairfield should be
well represented at this State
gathering of teachers. Those
teachers who do not attend the
State summer school should at
tend the Catawba district summer
school to be held at Yorkville,
June 15, notice of which will be
found in another column.
The college commencement sea
son is now in full blast. The
large graduating cla4sses of the
present year are suggestive of the
increased interest in education in
this State within the past few
years. With so many we ll
equipped young men and young
women entering upon the duties
of life, there are better hopes for
the development of the State from
every standpoint. The greatly
increased attendance upon the
colleges also suggests the need
for more and more high grade
preparatory schools so as to meet
this growing demand. The en
largement of Mt, Zion at this time
is a step in the direction of sup
plying this need.
The best profits are not always
direct. For instance, in addition
to the direct profits, there are
also the indirect profits that
come from the improvement ol
the land. Every farmer should
diligently apply himself to the
problem of making his lands
more productive. There is ne
better way for accomplishing
this desired end than by the sow
ing of peas. With this great
land restorer so cheap at this
time, there is no reason why
thousands of acres of land in
Fairfield should not be upbuili
during the present season. Sow
ing peas in drills or broadcast is
the kind of farming that is needed
The enlargement of Mt. Zion
Institute by erecting a dormitory
on the lot adjoining the present
principal's honme is now fully as
sured. It is rarely ever that an en
terprise starts out with more rea
sonable assurances of success thar
does this. The unanimity witla
which the citizens responded tc
the appeal made to them to as
sist in making this enlargemeni
possible will count no little it
again winning for Mt. Zion thal
place of prominence among pre.
paratory schools it so long held
So instead of looking backward
always, let us face about with thE
determination to make the Mt
Zion of the future more glorious
than the Mt. Zion of the past.
The establishing of the board.
ing department in connection witi:
the Mt. Zion Institute is in nc
wise antagonistic to the move
muent of the public school trus
tees of the county for establish
ing a county industrial higlb
school. The policy of tbe twc
schools wrould be so distinct as to
necessitate their being kept
separate. This does not mean,
however, that Winnsboro will not
lend its support for the establish.
ment of the industrial school.
For that she will surely do, and
ifithe effort to establish the in
dustrial school succeeds, she wil]
be on hand with the necessary
inducements for having it located
at the county seat, where it
would motproperly belong.
For a Farmers' Institute.
In compliance with the notiec
sent out by the Clemson authe-ri
ties, a petition signed by fifteen
farmers has been sent to them
requesting that they hold a farm
ers' institute at or near Winus
boro the last week in July or the

Columbia entertained the waiting
friends with several choice selec

first notes of the Lohengrin bridal
chorus, rendered by a quartette
of beautiful voices, pealed forth,
an expectant hush fell upon the
audience as the ushers, Messrs
Will Evans, Henry Cathcart,
W. C. Swaffield and Claude M.

maids entered from the side doors
of the pulpit, crossing a.nd de
seending the steps. First came
Miss Emmie McGee of Greenville,
who appeared queenly in a
handsome gown of blue chiffon
over blue taffeta. She was fol
lowed by Miss Eloise Bollinger
and Miss Katherine Kellam.
Miss Bollinger a sister of the
groom, was lovely in an elegant
gown of pink chiffon over pink
taffeta with point lace: Miss
Kellam of Richmond, Va., was
also beautifully attired in pink
chiffon over pink taffeta. The
bridesmaids carried bouquets of

Mrs. Theodore Quattlebaum of

white chiffon over pink taffeta.
The groom attended by his best
man, Mr. Charlie Bruce of Colum
bia, entered from the left of the
pulpit, meeting the bride at the
foot of the steps.
The bride's gown was an ex
quisite creation of white embroid
ered net over handsome accordion
plaited taffeta. The veil was
caught with a spray of orange
blossoms. She carried a shower
bouquet of bride's roses. The
ceremony was performed by Rev.
J. L. Freeman, assisted by Rev.,
Jabez Ferris of Batesburg.
Throughout the ceremony was
heard the soft sweet strains of a
duet rendered by Dr. Gordon
Quattlebaum and Mrs. Wilkins.
To Mendelssohn's wedding

church and repaired to the home
of the bride, where an enjoyable
reception was held. The house
was beautifully decorated in
green and white. An elegant
