A Very Capable Man.

W. Fowler ol Parksville is a candi
date for superintendent of education
cf McCormick county. He is a
very capable man, and the people of
the ''baby"county will make no mis
take if they elect him to this impor
tant oosition, as he will properly
organize their educational system.
Mr. Fowler is unusually well fitted
for the duties of this position, being
a graduate of Rutgers, the Sute
college of New Jersey, and of Co
lumbia University and the Teach
ers' college of New York. He has
also studied iu England and France,
and has had considerable experience
in teaching. Possessing the power

Y. VV. A's. Entertain College
The Edgefield Y. W. A.'s held a
delightful meeting at the Baptist
church Friday afternoon led by
Mrs. Kate Dennis president of the
Y. W. A., in honor of the college
girls of all the churches.
Tile program was in charge of the
young women entirely and was
opened with "0 Zion Haste" with
piano accompaniment by Miss Mar
garet May, as all the members
marched in singing.
A very pretty banquet was given
on the platform at which all the
nations of the earth served, imper
sonated by the pretty girls of the
Y. W. A. Miss Ruth Strom gave a
reading, and all the guests repaired
out under the trees and were served
delightful cream and cake by the
woman's missionary society.
I Tuesday afternoon Miss Lizzie
Hollingsworth gave a miscellaneous
shower at her lovely country home
in honor of the bride-elect, Miss
Natalie Padgett. In spite of the
thunder storm that came up at the
hour of the shower, there were a
sidficient number of young ladies
present to make the occasion one of
unusual pleasure. The parlor was
decorated with a profusiou of dai
sies. A musical contest afforded
pleasant diversion, as many of the
guests were talented musicians.
Miss Nell Jones played several se
lections on the piano the titles bear
ing upon or being suggestive of
the approching nuptials of the guest
of honor and each one prtsent sup
plied a name for each selection, a
prize, a beautiful box of stationary,
being awarded the one giving the
most correct names. This distinc
tion fell to the lot of Miss Natalie
Padgett. At the close of the con
test the climax of the very pleasant
occasion was reached when a little
pickauinoy, clad in white with yel
low paper arranged about his form
to represent a yellow daisy, his
black head representing the black
centre, entered the parlor bearing
on his head a large waiter upon
which was arranged the beautiful
collection of tokens that were be
bestowed upon the guest of honor
by her friends. The hostess served
ice cream and cake. So thoroughly
enjoyed was the occasion that the
congenial coterie were unmindful
of the lowering clouds and the elec
tric display without.

Y. W. A. Rally at Parksville.
A party of Edgefield ladies inter
ested in the Y. W. A. rally at
Paiksville left Edfiefield at 8:30
o'clock Thursday morning, having
been belated by the hard morning
showers. The party reached there
just as the norning session closed,
meeting our beloved state superin
tendent, of the Young Woman's
Auxiliary at the door, and Miss Em
mie Lanham associate superintend
ent of the Y. W. A. for Edgefield
association aud other kind friends
and residents of Parksville. The
dinner was a very pleasant opportu
nity for social intercourse, and was
a manifestation of the kindly hospi
tality of the Parksville people.
Miss Emmie Lanham made a very
efficient presiding officer and was
highly commended for her faithful
ness in being present under great
difficulties and in so wisely conduct
ing the meeting.
At the close of the meeting the
Edgefield delegates were hospitably
entertained in the homes of Mr. and
Mrs. Garrett Tal bert and Dr. Black

they caused great trouble in the end.

A College Graduate.
A young college graduate said
the other day, "Now that I have
completed my education, 1 must de
cide on a vocation."
The chances for that young man
to make a success in life are not
very bright, for two reasons. Ir. the
first place, lie has not completed his
education; and in the second place,
his vocation should have been de
cided ou long ago.
Going through college and se
curing a diploma and 'a degree does
not make an education. Knowledge
gained from books is not worth
much unless the knowledge thus
gained is applied in tho every day
affairs of life. A college course
is not an education in itself; it is in
tended to enable one getting it to
more readily acquire education later
on- It is intended to be a means to
ward an end, and not the end in it
The young man who waits until
he-bas'comt>l?t?d his college course
before deciding on a vocation is
greatly handicapped, in that he has
wasted some of the most valuable
years of his life, lie should decide
on his vocation first, and then shape
his college course so as to fit him
self for his vocation. The young
man who doesn't do this makes a
It is useless to worry over this
young college graduate who is still
trying to decide on a vocation; but
other young men who expect to en
ter college this fall might do well
to ponder over his mistake.-Ander

Entertained! in Honor of Charm
Tuesday afternoon ?at her home
on Main street Mrs. Bettie Cantelou
entertained with bridge in honor of
her charming guest, Mrs. Frank
Myers of Atlanta, who has been a
visitor in the home of Mrs. Cantelou
before and is pleasantly remember
ed here. Five tables were arranged
by the hostess for the animated
game and at the conclusion the
highest score was made by Mrs.
James H. Tompkins who won the
first prize. The consolation prize
on this occasion fell to the lot of
M iss Annie Bee. The hostess also
presented the guest of honor with a
beautiful token, which will be priz
ed as a souvenir of the delightful
afternoon. Delicious ices were
served at the close of the bridge
