An Interesting Occasion.
Several times each year, a custom
that has prevailed here for several
years, some one in Edgefield enter
tains in honor of the elderly ladies
of the community. The last one of
these very pleasant occasions was
held at the hospitable home of Mrs.
J. P. Ouzts who entertained the el
derly ladies of Edgefield in honor
of her mother, Mrs. M. A. Watson,
and Mr. Ouzts' mother, Mrs. Isa
belle Ouzts. The congenial corte
rie was composed of about a dozen
ladies who became reminiscent and
chatted pleasantly of the past. Sev
eral of the ladies .ittended the same
school in their girlhood and others
were more or less intimately asso
ciated later in life and this day,
made so delightful by the many
thoughtful attentions of the hos
tess, afforded an' opportunity to dis
cuss the things that took
place in the long and nearly-for
gotten past. The most pleasing
feature of the day w?s the bounti
ful feast that was served so beauti
tifully by Mrs. Ouzts. The guests
have been lavish of their praises of
her kindness and thoughtfulness on
Card of Thanks.
We wish to extend our appr?cia

tude to all our neighbors, friend,
and kinsmen for courtesy and kind

The scene is a district school of
fifty years ago somewhat in bur
lesque, but after all very nearly
true to the real school of that pe
riod. The intention is to secure in
this school the most prominent
business men and leading women of

selves to the siuiation. The Edge
field ''Deestrick Skule" has already
given great pleasure to the scholars
in that school and will amuse the
largest audience ever assembled in
the Edgefield opera house on April
On Tuesday afternoon, about
twenty-five guests assembled at the
home of Miss Sallie Parker, where
they had been invited for an after
noon of social enjoyment, but they
little knew what awaited them, nor
the pleasant surprise which would
soon be theirs. Everywhere were
the colors white and gold giving
evidence that something unusual
was taking place.
After most cordial greetings from
the hostess, each one was very gra
ciously served with fruit punch by
Misses Marie Key and R?sela Par
kes, whence they were seated at
tables where a contest was conduct
ed, naming the various articles of
a girl's trousseau in jumbled letters.
On th'3 souvenirs was the name of
her honoree and her fiance, these
also in jumbled letters o' gold.
While seated, as the fcontest
closed, most delightful refreshments
were served, a salad course, follow

food cake, cn which in orange let

Mr. John E.Perry,one of the old
est and most honored citizens of our
town died at his home here on Sat
urday nierht between ten and eleven
o'clock. For about two months he
has been in failing health, and a
day or so previous to his death he
suffered from acute indigestion, but
was able to be up again, and on
Saturday he was again seized with
an attack. During his weakness and
suffering the most loving care was
given him by those near to him. Mr.
Perry would have been 80 years of
age in May, and considering this
he was still very active. Especially
will he be missed by his neighbors
and immediate friends, for they
knew what his friendship meant.
He was a man who found delight in
the companionship of friends and
his ever ready help was theirs to
call upon. He was i devoted father
and husband, kind, loving and al
ways jovial. As a member of the
Methodist church he was consistent,
with an unfaltering faith in God,
for a few moments before the end
he said he had no fear, for he trust
ed the Lord. He was a brave Con
federate soldier. A t the first call to
arms, he was ready to muster into
service, and fought well for the
south he loved. The D. of C. placed
a laurel wreath upon his casket. The
funeral services were conducted Sun
day afternoon at the Mt. of Olives
cemetery by his pastor. Rev. 6. T.
Hutchenson and the D. of C. sang
softb'. "Our hero-soldier sleeping,
he'll never march again." Mr. Per

one daughter, Mrs. Alice Coi, a

A beautiful luncheon was given
on Friday afternoon by Mrs. J. L.
Walker for two of the brides-to-be,
Misses Lylie LaGaone and Frances
Strother. Those assisting the hos
tess were Misses Josephine Mobley
and Nina Ouzts and Mesdames
Miras Walker and W. B. Ouzts,
and after the arrival of the guests,
a half hour was spent each sketching
a picture of the kind of
home the bride-elects might wish,
with plans of the house and flower
garden. Mrs. Leon Stansell's plan
won the prize, a hand embroidered
collar. Much merriment was had
viewing some of the sketches. All
were invited into the dining room,
where 'n elaborate luncheon of sal
ads, pressed chicken, sandwiches,
olives, crackers and ice tea were
served, then tutti-frutti cream with
bride's cake, and lastly green mints,
the color scheme being green and
white. The idea was well carried
out, the china being decorated in
green and the lights had green
shades. In the center of the table
was a miniature home, with flower
garden and tiny shrubbery, and this
made an attractive centerpiece. The
place caids were of Cupid, prepared
for a.journey. Before leaving the
room the guests of honor were pie
