EDGEFIELD, S. C., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24,1915
Death of Mr. Moyer. Mrs.
Wright Entertained in Hon
or of Brides. Meeting
of P. A. R.
Mr. Alden Moyer died at his
home here on Thursday morning
at ll o'olook, the end not being un
expected as this had been evident
for several days. For about three
years his health has been failing,
and for the past few months was
confined almost to his roora. About
5 years ago he was married to Miss
Lessie f-^tbbs of Lexington. Mr.
Moyer was scarcely more 30 years
of age and it is sad to contemplate
that the life of one in the fullness
of manhood should be cut down.
He was a member of the Lutheran
church. Besides bis wife is left his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Moy
er and several brothers and a sister.
The burial took place on Friday
morning a; Mt. Calvary Lutheran
church, a few miles from here being
conducted by' his pastor, Rev. M.
It was quite a surprise to many
when it was learned on Wednesday
thu Miss Bertha Woodward and J
Mr. Whittaker had been married.
The happy event took place in the j
borne ol the bride and was witness- j
ed by only a few friends, the RHV. \
Tnacker performing the cermony. j
After congratulations they left in a j
car for Batesburg to board the
north bound train, being accompa
nkd bv Miss Alma Woodward and
Pauline Lewis. The brid<^ is one of
ihe town's most pleasant and at
tractive young women, and sincere
good wishes are extended to the !
happy pair. Mr. Whittaker is local
telephone manager, having been lo
cated here for several months.
A communication has been re
ceived from Hon. Lever by the
Mary Ann Knie chapter, D. of C.,
stating that he would be pleased to
deliver the memorial address before
the chapter on May 10.

Mrs. M. R. Wright for the two
April brides, Misses Josephine Mob
ley and Helen Thacker, was so beau
tiful that the g?ests were yharmed
and it was only the lengthening
shadows, that caused the happy
guests to depart. This day being St
Patrick's day, the hostess carried
out in lovely detail the ideas that
characterize the day and under the
soft green lights with shamrocks
everywhere, and the ' Blarney
stone," which each kissed to try
their future, the guests felt them
selves transported to "'Erin" as
soon as they stepped within the por
tals of the home. The hostess was
assisted by her sisters, Misses Luelle
and Sara Norris, and after cordial
greetings, four irresistable Irish
maidens in green, Misses Marion
Mob!ey, Virgie Courtney, Maud
Sawyer and Johnnie Thacker, serv
ed coffee and shamrock shaped
cheese straws. The coffee table was
lighted by a circle of Irish potatoes
with a burning green taper in each
on*. The brides-elect were both at
tired in pretty costumes of green.
Progressive rook was enjoyed and
the score cards were decorated with
the shamrock. Mrs. J. W. Brown
made the highest .score and re
ceived a pot plant. The honor prizes
were dainty pieces of hand em
broidery. Block cream in which the
shamrock was moulded was served
with pound cake, also shamrock
Miss Bertha Stihn of Chester is
the guest of Mrs. F. M. Boyd. For
the past two months Miss Stahn has

on Friday afternoon at the High
School building and it is hoped that
all interested will be present.
The historical meeting of the
Mary Ann Buiechapter will be held
with Mrs. C. D. Kenny on Thurs
day afternoon at four o'clock.
The regulor monthly meeting of
the Emily Geiger chapter, D. A.
R., met with Miss Zena Payne on
Monday afternoon. The reports of
the officers aud committees showed
that the chapter was actively en
gaged. Marking the graves of
Revolutionary heroes was up for
discussion, and inquiry was to be
made to ascertain if there were
any without the slab-? or markers,
lt bas bein the desire of the chap
ter t<> pl iee the tla<: on the Iliuh
School building and as a result
from the recent play 1)eld tor this
purpu>e a good sum was realized.

way towards showing the andience
how in campaign states for prohi

been sung into the people by the
voices of many children as well as
older young people.
There will be an expression in
