in Pickens, and greatly enjoying
the many advantages accruing
from a sojourn in our lovely lit

our town-youth, beauty and
wisdom-young ladies and gen
tlemen, are all vieing with each
other in assisting Miss Vesta
Ashmore, who is a most charm
ing hostess, in entertaining her
fair guests. The young ladies
constituting this house party

Mrs. A. J. Boggs Entertains.
Last Friday night Mrs. A. J.
Boggs entertained her guests.
Miss White, of Augusta, Ga.,
and Miss Sholer, of Easley, with
a lawn sociable, on the magnifi
cient lawn of Mrs. J. H. Newton.
Quite a crowd of the young folks
of the town were present and an
enjoyable time was had.
The lawn was well lighted
with japanese lanterns, rustic
seats around the trees and in con
venient nooks and corners.
Youth, adorned by beauty and
with chivalry on guard, could
be found perambulating the by
ways, or seated alongside 'the
hedges, and( all enjoying each
moment, as all too fast the witch
ing hour for parting drew nigh
when chivalrous youth and love
ly maidlen must bid adlieu.
The refreshments were served
on the lawvn. Ice cream, sher
berts, cakes, and other dainties,
in the utmost profusion of plenti
fulness was there as was the
hum of joyous pleasantries, and
the peals of laughter caused by
the ready badinage of frind to

scene which would bring regret
to him who has mounted to the
summit the ridge pole of life and
now casts his eyes along the
decline before him.
Mrs. Boggs is a most charm
ing hostess, who knows full well
how to make it pleasant for the
young folks, and while she
might be classed by some, as be
longing to the "older set," yet,
when it coies to looking after
the joys and pleasures, she is
youthfulness personified and can
well be classed with the "sweet
sixteen" set. Verily in a sense,
today Mrs. B. is younger than
any of her daughters, and to her
in great nieasure, are the young
folks of our town indebted for
many of the enjoyable occasions
they have heretofore had. Her
heart beats with joy at the in
nocent pleasures of youth and as
she will never grow old in its
truest and severest sense, the
young folks of our town will al
ways have a helper and ally in
anything looking to their joy
and pleasure. In her charming
daughters this charm of .the
mother is being developed, and
shoul1d the cares and burdens of
life (if they ever) set heavy on
