Mr. Hood and his crew were going
along at a lively clip on the lever car,
ind while in a cut near Adgers narrowly
escaped a collision with a
southbound extra. In this' cut the
;raeb makes a curve that prevented any
)f the men on the lever car from see

was almost on them. They all jnmped
for their jives and barely succeeded in
jetting out of the way before the car

SOUTH CAHOLIXA AND THE SHAMROCK.
Sir Thomas Lipton, the owner of
the yacht, Shamrock, which will soon
;rois the Atlantic to sail a scries of
races with the Colombia, the new cup
defender, ran away from his home in
Ireland, when about 16 years old,
came to South Cirolma and worked
for two years on a rice plantation.
The race in September is going to be
an international cftair and, of course,
we all want to see the American boat
simply walk away from the Shamrock.
If the Trish boat takes the cup, however,
lhe credit tor the victory will
belong to a man who once lived in
South Carolina, and who shows hi3
good judgment by fitting his magnifi

MARRIED FIFTY TEAS5.S
Rev E s and Mrs Lnpo Celebrate Their
Golden Wedding:
On Wednesday, the 26tb of July, it
was oar pleasure to be among the
number of invited guests assembled
at the home of Rev. and Mrs. E. S.
Lupo, near Monticello, to participate
in the celebration of their "Golden
Wedding." Although the day was
dark and clocdy and there was an almost
constant downpour of rain, all
of the invited guests were preseut and
not one had sent an excuse. The very
fact of rain, so much needed upen the
thirsty fleld3, served to increase the
joyfuloes3 and grateful spirit of the
occasion, and the merriment and laughter
within was a spontaneous and
happy accompaniment to the patter of
rain on the roof.
There is a ?p:rit of sad sweetness
that possesses the heart in standing
before a couple that has passed the
mueiu tune siunu vi luariicu m-.
When we reflect upon the contrast of
the first and second wedding. A
youth and maid in the strength and
hopefulness of youth stand before us;
and in the hope and faith of young
life look forward to a life rchose difficulties
seem email, wheire trials few
and the dark cloud of sorrow finds no
place ia their hesven of happiness.
The years have rolled. The joys have
been many, bat trials have come too,
a good fight has been foaght. Life's,
path was r.ot so smooth ?8 they expected,
and the bowed form, the
wrinkles and silvered hair but mark
the mile stones, and are witnesses to
the rough places along the'way. On
the occasion our hearts responded to
a feeling of profound honor and respect
a3 we stood in the presence of
such a noble pair. Two who had
through the years preserved such an
honorable name and bad so successfully
reared their children in the
"nurture and admonition of the Lord."
Of iiicse tbere are eight children and
twenty-six grandchildren, all of whom
were present 011 this bappy occasion.
Th3 number of guests pressut, including
children and grandchildren,
unmoored aoout sixty.
In iLe presence of the standing assembly
the couple entered when Ju.v.
II. L Baaksof the XI. E. Church iu
appropriate aud well chosen words,
remarked upon the honored and exemplary
life of this consecrated,*-^*
and recommended ihe exatrp' _
(heir lives to a!! present. Rc ~~A.
McDowell fittingly gave a eIi ^ review
of the life of this minister y.' the
gospel and gave praise to his worthy
helpmeet who would share not only
his worldly praise, but that to come.

very ssveetly "The Golden Wedc!iag"
a poem written for the occasion
and sejit by their friend Mrs. E. P.
Scott, of Longtown, to which Rev.
Lupo very touchingly responded.
Prayer was offered by Rev. Banks,
and the congratulations which followed
were sincere and appropriate.
Among the presents given was a iarge
comfortable willow rocker presented
to Rev. Lnpo by theMonticello Sunday
School. Air. W. D. Davis in a few
chosen words made the presentation.
Also a pair of gold spectacles apiece
from their children. Their daughter
Mrs. E. D. Lnpo, of Atlanta, brought
a handsome golden cake .vbich, with
an elegant centerpiece in gold, adorned
the main table. The dinner was served
at high noon and was all that a wedding
feast could be. In the afternoon j
Mr. Reckling photographed the lamny
group, after which the assembled
guests, servants and all were photographed
on the rocks in the yard.
This picture will serve as au appropriate
souvenior and happy reminder
of a pleasant occasion
The pleasures of the afternoou were
adaed to much by the recitations in
dialect of Miss Irene Lupo of Atlanta.
This yonng lady is one of the few who
has successfully attained the accomplishment
of dialect speaking.
To this honored couple we extend
our best wishes and desire that tney
may vet be spared to celebrate their
"Diamond Wedding."
