and were quietly married by Rev.
A. L. Gunter. Miss Johnson has

Edgefield from Greenville to reside
several years ago. Miss Johnson has
made many friends who wish much

Mass Meeting in Interest of
Monday afternoon a goodly num
ber of Edgefield's citizenship met
in the court house to devise ways
and means of equipping the high
school building with a new heating
plant. The old furnace which has
been in use for the past 12 years is
practically worthless and steps
must be taken to heat the building
before cold weather is upon us.
Considerable time will be required
to purchase and install a new plant.
After a full discussion of the sit
uation it was decided that the prop
er way to raise funds for school
purposes is by taxation. By such a
means the burden will fall equally
upon all property owners. When
money is raised by popular sub
scription only a few contribute,
causing the burden to be horne

Beautiful Wedding in Methodist
Church Followed by Bril
liant Reception at Home
A lovelier scene bas never been
witnessed in Edgefield than that
which greeted the eyes of those
who gathered in th? Methodist
church Wednesday evening to wit
ness the marriage of M?SK Lura'
Mims and Pierce Butler Day Jr., of
Trenton. Although simple and
chaste, yet the decorations were so
lovely in design and were so artisti
cally arranged as to make one feel
that they had been transported
from this earthly sphere. Green
tulle was gracefully draped from
the large electrolier to the windows
on each side of the rostrum and
smilax and asparagus were festooned
upon the snow-white wall on each
side and back of the rostrum. From
the centre of the arched windows
and above the swinging doors that
separate the Sunday school room
unique and artistic baskets were
arranged. About the chancel and
altar amid ferns and palms number
less candles were placed, the crown
ing feature being the graceful arch
across the recess to the rear of the
rostrum. As the bridal party en
tered the electric lights were turned
off and the soft light from thc num
berless candles added to the
enchantment of this living picture
of surpassing loveliness.
Mrs. John R. Tompkins presided
at the organ and rendered several J
appropriate selections while the rel
atives and friends weie assembling.
During the prelude... played byi.Mrs.

neously thu groom entered from the
rear of the rostrum, accompanied
by his younger brother, George
Day. Thu officiating ministers, the
bride's pastor, Rev. A. L. Gunter,
and Rev. R. G. Shannonhouse, the
groom's pastor, quietly came upon
the rostrum from the rear entrance
of the church as the brit al party
first entered from thu front. Their
troths were plighted by the use of
the beautiful Methodist ceremony,
which was impressively read by Mr.
Gunter, al the close the invocation
being offered by Mr. Shannon
At the conclusion of the ceremo
ny, the bridal party caught step to
the organ and marched from the
church in the reverse order. Imme
diately after leaving the church a
large number of friends repaired to
the home of Mr. and Mrs. James
T. Mims, the bi ide's parents, where
a reception was tendered them.
Upon reaching the threshold of
this hospitable home the guests
were greeted by Mrs. Henry H.
Hill, Mrs. Thomas H. Rainsford,
Mrs. H. N. Greneker and Mrs. B.
E. Nicholson and were directed into
the parlor where the bridal party
formed the receiving line, the bride
and groom standing under a large
wedding bell. After showering
Mr. and Mrs. Day with congratula
tions the guests leisurely passed into
the library where the wedding gifts
were arranged on large tables across
two sides of the room. One rarely

The bride quietly withdrew and
