brother-in-law, Mr.' Thomas E.
Byrd. He has been in feeble health
for more than a year. He spent some
time in Edgefield with his sister,
Mrs. Logan, and his friends here
were greatly distressed over his
steady decline. He went lo the hos
pital for special treatment some
months ago but nothing could stay
the steady progress of the disease
that had taken a fatal grip upon
him. Mr. Strom was quiet and un
obstructive in his manner and for
that reason was known best and ap
preciated most by those in closest
association with him. He was reared
and spent his long life of 02 or 63
years practically in the same com

was nevir married. The funeral was

lingsworth looked charming in a
costume of tan la-je.
Panic, a new game was played at
three tables, while those on the
porch played rook. Though the
game was new the guests easily
learned for at each table they were
told the whys and wherefores of the
crame. From the gay time the guests
had over the panic table, one is led
to think that it will take the place
of the popular rook game. The tal
ly cards served both for keeping
score and for souvenirs.
At the close of the games, Miss
Hollingsworth was presented with a
handsome cut glass powder stand,
with silver top by the hostess. At
the rook table, Miss Ilene Harlihg
won first prize which she presented
to Miss Hollingsworth. The prize
consisted of a lovely box of pink
tinted stationery. The first prize in
panic consisting of one of the latest
novels, was won by Miss Helen
Tillman- The consolation consist
ing of a box of correspondence
cards was won by Mrs. John Rains

spacious lawn, porch, hall and rooms
looked beautiful in their decorations
of pink roses and the further deco
rations of the pretty girls wearing
evening gowns, and also the hand
some young men.
As the guests entered they were
greeted at thc door by Miss Marie
Abney, while Mrs. Calhoun guided
them to the receiving line, there to
meet Miss Tarrant, who looked
charming in a pink gown, holding a
large bouqt at of pink roses. The

The guests then repaired to the
porch, where delightful fruit nectar
was served by Miss Ilene Marling.
The punch bowl was decorated in
bunches of delicious ripe grapes.
The porch was lit by rows of rain
bow colored Japanese lanterns.
Soon cards and pencils were dis
tributed, and great enthusiasm was
aroused when the girls were told
that since it was leap year that they'
were to make the dates. Many of
the boys bad all of their dates filled,
and some young men were popular
enough to have two young ladies to
escort them about. This game
proved very interesting and enter
taining. During the fourteenth
date pink ice cream and cake, iced
with pink, were served, thus carry
ing out the color scheme.
About twelve o'clock the guests
departed, having had the time of
CLEAR SKIN COMES FROM WITHIN.
It is foolish to think you can gain
a good clear complexion by the use
of face powder. Get at the root of
the trouble and thoroughly cleanse
the system with a treatment of Dr.
King's New Life Pills. Gentle and
mild in action, do not gripe, yet
they relieve the liver by their ac
tion on the bowels. Good for
young, adults and aged. Go after
a clear complexion to-day. 25c. at

Letter From Hardys.
As ray time is limited will only
write a little.
We were called to attend the fun
eral of another of our dear old la
dies last Saturday. Miss Fannie
Lanier passed away Friday morning
at seven o'clock. Very peacefully
she fell asleep after a short illness.
Was conscious to the last. Talked
of her garden the day before her
death, and said since she had not
been able to look after it the grass
had taken possession of it. She
has been feeble for some time,
though not confined constantly to
her room. Always took an active
interest in all that was going on
around. All who knew her, loved
her. She was a gentle, lovely
Christian lady, and has gone to meet
the loved ones, who have waited so
long for her coming. She leaves
two sisters, Mrs. Mat Shaw and
Miss Melvie Lanier to mourn her
loss, and many nieces and nephews.
She will be greatly missed by them.
We are sorry to hear of Miss
Mary Townes being 'sick wi'.h ma
laria and chills. She is able to be
Mrs. Milton Darker has been
complaining, but is better.
Mrs. J. M. W. Glover lias been
quite sick, but is improving some,
and we hope will soon be herself
Mrs. Minnie Lanham gave a so
cial last Friday night to her sisters,
who are visiting her, and they
furnished most beautiful music for
the enjoyment of the guests. Of
course there were delicious refresh
ments as well as music. We all
know the Lyon family are specially
gifted musicians, and would love so
much to hear them all together once
again. We hope Miss Daisy has
been heard from since the floods,
and she is all right.
