A wedding of unusual beauty
took place here Thursday afternoon
at the horne of Rev. and Mrs. P. P.
Blalock, when their second daugh
ter, Miss Marion Blalock, became
the wife of Dr. William Sims Boyd
of Greeleyville. The ceremony was
performed by the father of the
bride and the invocation was offer
ed by her pastor, Rev. E. C. Bailey
of the Presbyterian church.
The guests were received at the
door by Miss Royall Peak, Miss
Elizabeth Waring, Miss Margaret
-Gourdin and Miss Mary Anderson.
The entire lower floor of the
home was thrown en suite and
tastefully decorated for the occa
sion. In the west parlor the color
scheme was yellow and white, daffo
dils being used in great profusion.
In the east parlor, where the cere
mony was performed, white and
green were used, and in the dining
.room, yellow predominated. The
bride's table was outlined with yel
low daffodils and a huge basket in
the centre was filled to overflowing
( with the same flowers, the choicest
of the Edgefield gardens at this
season. The shade over the electro
lier was a yellow shower effect,
shedding a soft light about the
After the guests arrived they
were entertained until the appointed
time for the ceremony by several
musical numbers very sweetly ren
dered. Miss Nannie Gunter of
Batesbnrg sang *vAt Dawning" and
"Because," and Mrs. R. G. Shan
nonhouse sang "Veronese Sere
nade," Mrs. Mamie Tillman accom
panying both on the piano. At the
conclusion of the musical program,
Mrs. Tillman sounded Mendels
sohn's wedding march and the bri
dal procession entered tbe parlor in
the following order, having formed
in the upper hall: Descending the j
stairway like two .little fairies, the!
the flower girls, Katherine Stewart
and Elizabeth Bailey, entered the
parlor. Next came the ministers,
Rev. P. P. Blalock and Rev. E. C.
Bailey, these being followed by the
ring bearer, little Ned Nicholson.
Mrs. P. P. Blalock, Jr., of Atlanta,
the matron of honor, clad in a rich
gown of yellow, carrying a bouquet
of daffodils, next eutered. Then the
groom was accompanied by his best
man, P. G. Gourdin, of Kingstree.
The bride and ber maid of honor,
Miss-Ed-wardina Blalock, her sister,
were the last to enter.
At the conclusion cf this beauti
ful weddiug scene, made the more
beautiful by the father of the bride
uttering the words that made them
man and wife, Dr. and Mrs. Boyd
were showered with congratulations
and good wishes, not only fromi
Edgefield friends ,but from friends'
from different parts of the state.
During the social half hour that
followed the guests registered their j
names in the bride's book and view- ?
ed the large assortment of rich to
kens that had been bestowel by j
relatives and friends. The bride's j
book was in charge of Mrs. S. A.
Morrall, Jr., and Miss Virginia Ad
dison. A buffet luncheon was serv
ed by old family servants, followed
by ice cream and cake. The color
scheme, yellow and white, was re
flected in the cream.
Following a custom of long
standing, the bride's cake was cue
and the peals of laughter meant
that the future of some present had
been revealed by the article which
fell to their lot. The slice handed
to Miss Ruth Strom contained the
ring, the coin fell to the lot of Mi>s
Elizabeth Waring and the thimble
to Miss Ruth Timmerman.
Soon after leaving the dining
room where the bridal party were
served, the bride ascended the stair
way in the hall and tossed her bou
quet among the eager friends who
were standing below and Miss Ma
rie Andersou became its happy pos
The gifts were very numerous
and beautiful in design. The one
bestowed bv the groom's brother,
Dr. I. N. Boyd, a set of Haviland
china, was especially admired.

Marie Holston and Miss Willie
Peak with a dainty little wedding
ring suspended from a bow of white
ribbon as a souvenir of the joyous
Clad in a rich gown of white sat
in, with train, the bride never ap
peared more beautiful than she did
on this occasion. The grace of her
slender form was heightened by the
conventional veil. Later in the even
ing she donned a handsome travel
ing suit, ready for the departure
upon their wedding journey of sev
eral weeks in New York and other

I believe nearly every home in
our section is visited by the Edge

like receiving letters from friends
over the county makes for it a
special welcome. Special features
are brought out by your correspon

socially as w? ll, that help us to
improve in many instances.

It was quiet on our street yester
day only at mid-day. At Mr.

Pat Bussey, Mrs. Martha Dorn,
Mrs. Lizzie Timmerman, Mrs. Da

We have in mind now, our beloved
and honored pastor, Rev. G. W.
Bussey, his life and what it has
stood for in Edgefield county alone,
having baptised and married pa
