the cold weather and the dry com

early oats, and the late sowing ie

any good, as the wind followed it,
and it does not show to-day. Our
farmers are as backward or worse,
than last year, but we are still hope

will improve in the near future.

There is some sickness out of town.
Mrs. Hampton Parks was taken to

she was doing well.
Mr. Len Lyon6 was also taken to
the hospital for an operation to be
performed last Wednesday night
and at the last accounts he was get

up and able to go out in town and
we hope to see him as stout as for

enjoy the meeting and especially the
hospitality of the people of Aiken.
They fed bountifully and furnished

was one unpleasant incident. One

I heard that he died Wednesday
night. We' heard several good
speeches. Among the speakers was
the Hon. John C. Sheppard. He was
orator of the day and gave us one
of his good talks, such an one as he
is able to give. Yes and Coley was
there with body guard rigged out
with their paraphernalia which I
muBt admit did not create any ex
citement of note. Yes Coley made
a short talk and very appropriate
with a little touch of politics but
nothing to mar the occasion. The
occasion as I look at it, is solemn
and really is a sacred occasion. Ihe
oldmen are passing away and soon
there will not be one to celebrate
the re-union, only the sons and
daughters. They should every year

memory of their fathers. There was
one thing that was noticed by some
of us and that is there was no
drinking or drunkenness anywhere
among the old soldiers or any one
else.It has been said that old soldiers
at the re-uuion some times would
get drunk. I am happy to say there
