Mrs. Arthur Brunson entertained
the young ladies and gentlemen of
the town on Friday night in honor
of her nieces, Mrs. S. A. Burns and
Miss Speights. The lawn provided
ample room for the guests to play
various sorts of out door gaines.
After this the progressive conversa
tion took place affording a rest after
the exercise of the games. Delicious
cream and cake were served. Though
a short distance from town, it was a
pleasure instead of an inconvenience,
to ride out, for the night was beau
tiful. The guests left about eleven
thirty, having enjoyed the occasion
and being pleased to meet two more
of ,Edgefield's many visitors.
Mr. George Adams' Ham.
While we have not learned from
our own/palate, yet it is said that
wine improves with age. But we
never knew before that ham belong
ed in the class with wine. At the
Colliers picnic Saturday, Mr. Geo.
Adams, whose generous hospitality
is equalled only by the length of
his tongue, gave us some ham which
he said was two years old and it has
evidently improved with age. Its
delicious flavor could not be excell
ed. We do not know whether they
raise Berkshires, Durocs, Poland
Chinas, Tamworths, Essex, or the
old-time '"razor-backs," but we do
put Colliers against the universe for
raising, curing, cooking and serving
Progressive Conversation Party.
A very pleasant evening party
was given by Miss Helen Tillman
on Wednesday evening in honor of
Miss Ella Ha.vnsworth of Green
ville, her charming guest. A large
number of young people were there
to enjoy the happy occasion, and
the lawn and pergola, which were
beautifully lighted by Japanese lan
terns, were used most effectively for
the entertainment of all these hand
some and gracious young men and
maidens. The special entertainment
was progressive conversation, which
is a very wholesome and improving
method of amusement in this strenu
ous age. At the close of this pro
gram, ice cream blocks and angel
cake were served on the lawn and
in the pergola. Fruit nectar was en
joyed from the piazza, served
by Misses Genevieve Norris, Cath
erine Tannahill of Greenville, and
Marie Helston. j
Medal Contest Closes.
Yesterday afternoon the contast
of the blues and yellows came to a
close, when the captains, Mrs. W.
E. Lott and Mrs. E. J. Norris, en
tertained all the membership and
the new members. "Stand up for
prohibition" was sung and prayer
led by Mrs. Pendleton Jones.
The program began with the
medal winning song "Father dear
father, come home with me now,"
by little Daisy Smith. . This was a
beautiful and touching song by a
dear little girl, and many eyes were
tilled with tears as ?he concluded.
Miss Ouida Pattison gave the
medal winning selection, "Old
Soapy" which was greatly enjoyed.
William Jones sang "Youth's
victory" and won hearty applause,
as he always does when he sings.
Miss Plelen Marsh gave her med
al winning selection, "Why I sign
ed the pledge" and all the large
number of ladies present enjoyed
and applauded this beautiful se
lection so well said by such a sweet
and winning little girl.
Miss Mildred Glover of Bates
burg played an instrumental selec
tion from II Trovatore which added
novelty to the occasion. At this
time little Janie Edwards entered
bearing in her arms a pie, "the 4
and 20 black bird kind." and there
were whole birds of yellow and
black for everybody to have one.
On each bird was a question which
had to be answered. Ten minutes
was given for finding the answers
which were pinned on blue birds'
wings, roany of which had alighted
on the curtains and pictures and in
all sorts of places, and had been
there all the time, enjoying the pro
gram. But all these were captured
and the blue and yellow birds were
tied together with that bond of un
ion and comradeship, the white rib
There were fifty-three questions
about the W. C. T. U. asked and
answered, but the most important
ones were the questions about the
membership contest. When the
count was taken as to the number
of new members, strange to relate,
each side had exactly the same num
ber, eleven each, and 22 names were
added. These were most cordially
and affectionately welcomed. That
beautiful old song, "Listen to the
mocking bird," was sung by Mrs.
Ida Sheppard and Mrs. W. S. Cog
burn. The W. C. T. JJ. benediction
was repeated in concert; and after
the excitement of managing so many
birds everybody was invited to the
dining room and served most boun
tifully to peach cream and cake.
On the piazza, on entering and
leaving delightful fruit nectar wad
served by Misses Ouida Pattison,
Leila Quarles and Florence Minis.
