Splendid Lyceum Attractions.
Through the efforts of Mr. W.
A. Collett a large number of
citizens have subscribed for lyceum
tickets for the season but there are
yet others who should give the man
agement their loyal support. The
lyceum attractions for the approach
ing season are in a higher class than
any heretofore engaged and they
cost more money. The first attrac
tion will be the "American Girls"
on October 18. This entertainment
will consist of vocal and instrument
al music, readings and impersona
tions, all of the highest order. The
second attraction will be the "Car
roll Glee Club," a male quartette,
on November 8. This likewise is
composed of the best vocal talent.
The last entertainment of the course
will be given on March 6 by the
Hungarian orchestra, which is the
most expensive attraction of the
kind ever brought to Edgefield. The
Edgetield public can rest assured
that the 191516 lyceum course will
be the be>t Edgefield has ever bad.
There will be held at Sweet Wa
ter Baptist church, on the "second
-Sunday in September, memorial ser
The purpose of these services is

Marriage of Mr. Cain and Miss
Interesting to friends throughout
Georgia and South Carolina was the
?Marriage of Miss Myrtle Avenue
Armstrong ..a nd Capt. Richard Bee'
.Cain, which took place at the home
of the bride's sister, Mrs. M. H.
Usher, of Hephzibah, Ga., Thurs
day noon. Invitations were limited
to a very few close friends aside
from the members of the large
family connections of the bride and
groom, both of whom are related to
several of the leading families of
.South Carolina. Rev. Robert E. L.
Harris, pastor of the Hephzibah
Baptist church, performed the cere

The bride's wishes were carried
out in the matter of simplicity. The
i decorations were simule, yet very
effective, being artistically decorat
ed in pink and blue flowers. Scores
of ferns added to the effect through
out the rooms. In the parlor, where
the ceremony was performed, the
decorations were all white, a beau
tiful arch being formed at one end of
the roora, graceful ferns and white
roses formed a pretty background.
After the ceremony and congratula
" lions received the bride and groom
led the way to the dining room
where an elaborate buffet luncheon
was served, after which the bridal
party left in an automobile for Au
gusta, where :the bride and groom
boarded a Pullman car for Atlanta.
They will visit the Panama-Pacific
Exposition and other points of in
terest in the west.
The bride wore a beautiful trav
elling suit. It was a mont becoming
model of midnight blue and with
this was worn a blouse of Georgette
crepe and black velvet bat sailor
shape mounted by a lovely aigrette.
Gloves and shoes to match, complet
ed this stylish toilette.
Mr. and xMrs. Cain on their re
turn will be at home to friends in

is felt at the removal of the bride

Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman vice
president of the western division
then gave us a summary of her di
vision and something of the
work in each association in it. Thiis
was very interesting to every one.
After the appointment of some
committees we were dismissed by
Rev. P. B. Lanham and adjourn
ed for dinner. That dinner can
better be imagined than described.
ID abundance, variety, quality and
delightfully prepared, this was in
deed a magnifi?e:it one and beauti
fully served. Hot coffee and iced"
tea seemed to flow from vessels that
could not be emptied.
The afternoon session was called
to order by Mrs. Mamie Tillman,
superintendent of Sunbeam bands. (
Exercises by children are always i
interesting and on this occasion (
they all seemed to acquit themselves <
with more credit than usual. A pro- t
cessional of the Sunbeam bands ^
with their leaders marched in carry- (
ing banners and were seated at the L
front. "Be a? little Sunbeam" was t
then splendidly sung by them. Af- ]

lustrated Bible lesson which was t
enjoyed equally as much by the (
older ones as the children. Words \

The time for adjournment has
come again and it is an announce
ment that supper will be served on
the grounds and every one expected i
to remain,which thev accepted with- i
out any insistance. The homes ad
jacent to the church were throwu
wide open for the use and comfort i
of the guests. So free and genuine :
was this hospitality that every one
felt that they were in their own
home. Supper was announced just
at sunset and again the abundant
and delightful provision was en

chicken, hot biscuit and again the

There were songs by William Jones
and Eleanor Jd i ms, and recitations
by J. T. Littlejohn, Frances Jones
and MisB Florence Mims after
which Rev. T. H. Posey preached
a missionary sermon, using as his
theme "How shall we perform the
task assigned us." This closed the
night service and we were all soon
in what we each thought the best
home aronnd there, the assign
ments having been read out by Mrs.
J.O. Marshall whom we all felt part
ly belonged to Edgefield as we
knew her so well while at school
here. Another Edgefield faoe ,
