A Beautiful Home Wedding.
Sunday afternoon a large number
of relatives and friends gathered at
the hume of Mr. and Mrs. A. A.
Edmunds to witness the marriage of
their daughter, Miss Rhea Ed
munds, to Mr Belton Rambo of Au
gusta, The afternoon was ideal, the
bright autumn sun apparently smil
ing upon the beautiful occasion.
The front parlor in which the
ceremony was performed, Rev P B
Lanham officiating, was tastefully
decorated with pot plants, cut flow
ers and smilax, the latter being
gracefully draped from the ceiling
to the windows and doors. The
mantel contained large vases of cut
'flowers. The beautiful decoration
formed an attractive background
for those who'gathered to witness
the impressive ceremony. The wed
ding march was played on the piano
bj' Miss Julia Linson. "Hearts and
flowers" softly during the ceremony.
Immediately after the words
which united the lives of these two
young people were said, they were
showered with congratulations and
good wishes. According to the cus
tom of lon? standing, they were
pelted unmercifully with rice. In
order to save themselves from the
repeated showers of rice the bride
and groom had to rush from the
The bride was becomingly clad
in a beautiful tailored suit of blue
broadcloth with large picture hat to
match. She carried a bouquet of
huge pale yellow chrysanthemums.
The groom who is a prominent
young business man of Augusta, a
descendant of au old Edgetield
family, was clad in a conventional
black suit. After a social hour, fol
lowing the ceremony, Mr and Mrs
Rambo left in their touring car for
home in Augusta,
More than a dozen young ladies
and young gentlemen, relatives and
friends of the bride and groom,
came up from Augusta in autotuo
mobiles. They returned soon after
tbe bride and groom departed.
Mr and Mrs Edmunds served an
elaborate dinner just preceding the
marriage ceremony to the guests
in their home who had come from a
distance to attend the marriage,
which was one of unusual pleasure.

All the male citizens between the
ages of 21 years and 60 years, except
those exempt by law, are liable to a
poll tax of One Dollar each. A capita
tion tax of 511 cents each is to be paid
on all dogs.
The law prescribes that all male citi
zens between the ages of 18 and 55
years must pay $2.00 commutation tax
or work six days on the public roads.
As this is optional with the individual,
no commutation tax is included in the
property tax. So ask for road tax re
ceipt when you desire to pay road tax.
