Miss Battle Will Sing Evening
of September 9.
The ladies of the library associa
tion and the guiid of the Episcopal
church are jointly preparing a beau
tiful entertainment to be presented
September 9. With these two
combinations Edgefield may look
forward to something good. Every
effort is being made to make this
entertainment a grand success. The
best talent has been secured.
The first on the program will be
the Anvil Chorus sung by the gyp
sies from that beautiful opera, Il
Trovatore. Two anvils will ring
out struck by the strong arms of
Capt. N. G. Evans and Mr. Willis
Duncan. In this scene Miss Mar
garet Battle as Azucena.will sing as
the gypsies gather around lier. Miss
Battle leads the Presbyterian choir
in Augusta and has one of the most
beautiful voices in the South. Be
sides singing in the choir she takes
the most prominent parts in all of
the musical entertainments in the
city. At a great deal of expense
the ladies have been fortunate
enough to secure this beautiful
singer and it is hoped their efforts
will ba appreciated and that they
will be given a full house.
The next on the program will be
an Egyptian scene, then a song by
Miss Battle. After this comes the
sextette from Floradora sung by
six young ladies and six young men.
This will be very attractive and
will be sure to bring an encore.
Between acts Mr. and Mrs.
Brooks Mayson with the violin and
piano will play some of the old
sweet music we all love so well.
The last on the program will be a
short play, "The Burglar's Alarm."
This play will be enjoyed. It is
full of humor and very taki?g.
Cast of characters: The heroine
of the play is Miss Ruth Tompkins
as Violet; Miss Mary, maiden aunt
of Violet, Miss Georgia Mae Wates;
Miss Martha, maiden aunt of Vio
let, Miss Jennie Johnson; Bridgett,
the cook, Miss Hortensia Woodson;
Tilly Craig, the stagestruck maid,
Miss Florence Peak; Jack, Violet's
lover, Mr. Wad Allen.
Reserved seats 50 cents; general
admission, 35 cents; 25 cents for
children under tweive years of age.

Mrs. John R. Tompkins.
Edgefield, S. C.
Miss Margaret Battle will de
light all Edgefield with her beauti
ful voice as Azueena in the anvil
chorus. The ladies of the library
association and Episcopal church
are fortunate in securing such tal
ent for their entertainment which
is to be presented September 9.
We copy the following from the Au
gusta Chrouicle/'Miss Margaret Bat
tle needs no introduction to a pub
lic that has already proved on every
opportunity its admiration of her
wonderfully beautiful voice."
"Ternina of New York spoke in the
highest praise of Miss Battle's
voice." "Miss Margaret Battle leads
the Presbyterian choir, one of the
finest in the south."
Historic Old Company Re
At a meeting Friday afternoon
the Edgefield Rifles were formally
re-organized by the election of the
following commissioned officers:
W. J. Duncan, captain; W. C.
Tompkins, first lieutenant, and W.
A. Collett, second lieutenant. The
non-commissioned ofiicers will be
appointed as soon as the required
number of men enlist. Already
more than 30 meu have enrolled
and it is certain the necessary num
ber can be secured. The company
is well officered and we expect to
see it prosper. The people general
ly are deeply interested and will
give the Rifles more generous sup
port than they have in the past.
The governor will do doubt re-in
state the company at once.
Young Woman's Auxiliary.
One of the things which I look
forward to as a Y. W. A. member
is the meeting of that body of girls
every other week. We were very
pleasantly entertained at the home
of Florence .Mims last Monday af
ternoon. The attendance was bet
ter than'usual and the parlor was
filled with bright, pretty girls, a
sight that is pleasing, especially
when they are gathered together
for such a noble purpose.
The program as usual was of the
kind that enabled several of the
girls to take part. The occasion
afforded a whil*? for chatting, as
girls are prone to de, after the meet
ing. The refreshments, I think,
truly refreshed every one, for what
is there more cooling than an ice?
We were also honored by haying a
number of Edgefield's visitors.
j Death of Mrs. H. H. Sanders.
For several weeks our communi
ty has been greatly depressed on ac
count of the serious illness of Mrs.
H. H. Sanders, and when she calm
ly and peacefully passed away Fri
day morning at nine o'clock there
were many expressions of sorrow
and profound sympathy for her de
Before her marriage Mrs. Sanders
was Miss Mattie Plunkett, having
descended from an old and honored
Aiken family. She and Mr. Sanders
cime to Edgefield to make their
home about 15 years ago. Both of
them made friends rapidly and soon
occupied a prominent place in thc
community life. They have always
been held in high esteem by the peo
ple of the entire community.
Though quiet, gentle and modest,
Mrs. Sanders was a woman of un
usual strength and force, being not
only a devoted companion lo her
husband but being also of valuable
assistance to him in conducting his
business interest". The scattering of
sunshine along the pathway of oth
ers seemed to be one of Mrs. San
ders' ohief delights. She always had
a smile and some kindly remark for
those with whom she met, making
them feel happier by reason of hav
ing I 'fen in her presence. She was
an a<- ive member of the Baptist
churi .i and, in company with r
husband, she always attended
church cervices regularly, incl ig
the m M-week prayer meeting.
The i iterment took place Satur
day af ti moon at Mount Pleasant, a
Baptist church near her former
home five miles south of Ridge
Spring. The funeral service was

Rehoboth Birthday Party.
One of the happiest occasions of
the Rehoboth oommnnity was the
birthday party of Marion, the only
child of Mr. and Mrs. VV. A. Winn.
In their hospitable home on Tues

lightfully entertained a number of
little folks in honor of Marion's
Promptly at three o'clock the
guests arrived and were invited bv
Misses Annie Lou Morgan, and Mary
and Maggie Winn down to the cool
and shady spring to play games
which they enjoyed very much.
They were then invited into the
dining room which was beautifully
decorated, the color scheme being
pink and white, where refreshments
The birthday cake looked as if
mother earth had been covered with
snow flakes and icicles clinging up
on a large mound, and bad written
the initials M. E. W. in raised let

upon it, and to glance at it with its
six snow white candles burning so
brightly seemed as if the sun was
just sinking behind the western ho
Nothing but artistic skill could
have had things decorated and ar
ranged so lovely.
The guests on this pleasant oc
casion were Marguerite Luxeraber
