They tell us that Tom Watson is a

will remain one? Both Graves and
Watson are very unstable in politics:
While there seems to be a deficiency
in the number of June brides, the

Wind storms are not the only storms

The County Home, commonly known

that South Carolina's splendid record

While it is true that farmers are now

the amount subscribed. That is the
spirit that builds towns and cities.
Mark our prediction that Saluda will
-soon have railroad connection with the
outside world and is destined at no
very remote day to be a town of large
; Very soon the promoters of the
Greenville, Greenwood and Augusta
Railroad will come to Edgefield looking
for a location of the route from Green
wood to Augusta. Let's give them
our fullest co-operation to the end that
the road be continued to Augusta, thus
giving Edgefield additional railroad fa
cilities. We have been "bottled up"
long enough. The town can never hope
to grow and develop as it should until
we have a competing line built. Fur
thermore, the proposed road will open
up a splendid section of the county that
also greatly needs a railroad.
. .Russia's Unwarranted Cruelty.
t Dispatches from Russia state that
Jews are being driven out by the thou
sands. Without any warning, they are
made to leave their houses and pos
sessions. After receiving such cruel
treatment at the hands of Russian offi
cials in the past, the wonder is that all
J ews have not voluntarily withdrawn
from Russian borders. Just as the
United States stopped Spanish tyrany
in Cuba, so ought the nations of the
earth cause Russia to change her poli
cy in dealing with the Jewish popula
tion. Dispelling people without notice or
warning, causing them to abandon or
sacrifice their possessions, is altogether
unwarranted on the part of any na
Anti .Whiskey Sentiment Strong.
Whiskey advocates in some quarters
would have people believe that prohi
bition sentiment is on the wane in
South Carolina. We have been a close
observer of the trend of affairs and
have seen no good reason for such a be
lief. The "straws" point to a strong,
wholesome public sentiment condemn
ing the sale of liquor by the individual,
county or state. One of the strongest
evidences that the predominant senti
ment in South Carolina is in favor of
prohibition is found in the line-up of
the candidates for governor and lieu- j
tenant ^governor. The biggest and
broadest plank in most of their plat
forms is the anti-whiskey plank, which
is a mighty safe acd sound one to stand ?

Very Brilliant Home Wedding
* m Edg?f re?d Tuesday Even
Easily one of the most brilliant
social events that has occurred in
Edgefield in many months was the
marriage of Miss Ida Katherine
Sheppard and Mr. James Boat
wright Kennerly last evening, at the
home of the bride's mother, Mrs.
Ida F. Sheppard. The ceremony
?was performed by Dr. C. E. Burts.
Rarely indeed'does one's eyes fall
upon a more brilliant or more en
chanting scene than that which
greeted the guests as they
crossed the threshold of this
very hospitable home. The hall
and parior, were moat artistically
decorated for this nuptial occasion.
The decorations consisted chiefly
of green and white. Asparagus fern
and Southern sraila- were graceful
ly draped over doors, -windows,
mantels and about the walls, form
ing a beautiful background for the
handsome gowns that adorned the
ladies. The crowning feature of the
decoration was the improvised arch
of white . roses and ferns beneath
which the troths were plighted.
The ribbon bearers, sweet little
Margaret May and Sheppard Miller,
formed an aisle leading from the
hall to the floral arch. % This,
together with the sounding
of Mendelssohn's wedding
march by Miss Fannie Sheppard,
an noun CPU that the suspense of the
eager, expectant guests woiild now
be broken. - The first to enter was
the dame ol' honor, Mrs. William
S. Cogburn, a sister of the bride.
Next came the bride upon the arra
of her youngest sister, Miss Josie
Sheppard, the maid of honor. The
groom entered upon the arm of his
best man, Mr. B. T. Boatwright.
The bride was never more beau
tiful, nor appeared to better advan
tage. Her gown was of rich white
messaline satin with pearl trimming'}
and the conventional veil, hanging
so gracefully about her slender
form, lent additional charms to the
exquisitely beautiful toilette. The
dame and maid of honor were both
becomingly clad in white mulle
with lace trimmings. The beautiful
bonquet that was borne by the bride
was composed of Bride's roses aud
fern, whilo those of the dame and
maid of honor was made of white
sweet peas and ferns.
After the usual congratulations
and expressions of sincere good
wishes so lavishly bestowed by kin
dred and friends of theseliappy and
widely beloved, young people.- A
delightful salad course was served
buffett style. .
The ssweltering temperature of
thi? typical June evening was offset
by the delicious )tnd very refreshing
fruit punch that was served by Mis
aba-A?axcie Sheppard and Mazie
from a flower-embanked cor
the rear hall. This cazy cor
roded to be an exceedingly
ir rendezvous through out the
i only did the nuptials of these
' people, now Mr. and Mrs.
^"?rco B. Kennerly, call forth many
tokens of love and esteem from
friends of our town and vicinity
but friends from all parts of the
state sent tangible expressions of
esteem. Two large tables were re
quired for receiving the presents
that consisted of cut glass, china,
paintings, silver, cutlery, table lin
en, etc. Conspicuous among the
gifts was a handsome silver salad
dish, the gift of Mr. Kennerly's
employers. This of course was very
highly prized by him.
The bride is deservedly very popu
lar, having renderecl herself so by
her lovable traits and attractive per
sonality; The groom was born and
reared in Edgefield and is held in
very high esteem because of his
sterling qualities, being" a most ex
emplary young man from every
standpoint. For several years he
has represented large shoe manu
facturers of Chicago and has been
signally successful as a traveling
salesman. Both of these young peo
ple are to be sincerely congratulated
upon their good fortunes. The Fates
have indeed dealt kindly and gen
erously with them.
