Woman's Christian Temperance
Thursday afternoon at 3:30
.o'clock a large number of the com
Tades of the White Ribbon gather
.ed at the home of Mrs^ Chalmers
?Hoghes for the December meeting,
and to bring a contribution for the
annual box to the "Door of Hope."
The program differed somewhat
from the conventional one laid down
for our December topic, a3 therei
were so many things which had to
be heard from. The devotions, in
the absence of Mrs. Wells, was con
ducted by Mrs. E. P. Jones and
was a Bible reading ou "How We
.'Should Teaoh the Christmas Spirit
to Our Children," which led to re
maiks from several along this line.
One called attention to the faot
that the word Xmas should never
?be used instead of Christmas, for if
we take the Christ out of Christmas
what will be left to us?
At this moment little Frances
Caroline Rogers, of Blenheim,
who is a White Ribbon baby, was
'brought in by her mother, Mrs.
Raymond Rogers, and introduced
by Mrs. J. L. Mims to the interest
ed assembly. ;
A reading on the subject of Res
.oue was given by Mrs. J. L. Mims,
.that being the stated subject for
December. Quite a nice contribu
tion of packages were piled in the
?hallway to be sent to the Door of
Hope, thus continuing the custom
?pf many years standing of remem
bering this institution.
As it was near the Christmas
time, the year book committee had
thought of the Christmas Eve more
than forty years ago, when the pio
neer crusaders in temperance reform
had braved the animosity of the
whole world to launch the Holy
Cause, and Mrs. D, B. Hollings
worth brought some sketches of the
early crusaders. So full of pathos
were some of these early incidents
that there was' scarcely a dry eye
?mon? the listeners.
This was followed by a enthusias
tic report of the great progress of
the prohibition movement as exem
plified by the recent wonderful Na
tional Convention in Indianapolis,
when four great states and the ter
ritory of Nebraska sent victor* mes
It was decided to send the Union
Signal, tbe national organ of the
Woman's Christian Temperance
Union, to the ministers of the town
as a Christmas gift.
The hostess* served z delightful
.course, consisting Charlotte Rasse
and several kinds of cake.
The January meeting will be held
on the 14th with Mrs. W. R.
Swearingen, the date being a week
later on account of the week of
prayer for missionaries at the Bap

Death of Miss Paris Munday.
A newly made mound in the
Sweetwater cemetery marks the
resting place of Miss Paris Mun
day who died while visiting rela
tives in Harlem, Ga. Her body
was brought homo and interred in
the family square within the shad
ow of Sweetwater church, of which
she was an active member. Miss
Munday made her home with her
brother, Mr. John W. Munday, and
her death will be keenly felt in the
Roper's community. She will be
greatly missed in the community
where she was reared and passed
her life. There yet remain of the
immediate family one sister, Miss
Fannie Munday, and three brothers,
Mr. Pierce Munday, Mr. J. W.
Munday and Mr. E. J, Munday.

Dr. J. D. Chapman preached on
Sunday last at the Baptist church.
For this month he is representing
the Edisto Academy, and the cause
that he presented was well received,
and a good contribution was given
for the Institution.
The last meeting of the Mary
Ann Buie Chapter, U. D. C., was
held with Mrs. E. D. Moyer, Mrs.
James White presiding. The meet
ing was a most encouraging one,
this being tjge largest attendance of
any meeting! during the year. All
reports of officers and committees
showed each one actively engaged.
Four new members were added to
the Chapter Toll, Mrs. W. E. Lott,
Edgefield; Mrs. Ida Stevens, Meet
ing Street; Mrs. Ollie LaGrone and
Miss Eula Taylor. Tber.e were cor
dially welcomed into, the Chapter.
Mrs. Lott is a charter member of
the organization, 1896, but after
making ber home elsewhere, she has
had her name withdrawn. It was
her father. Capt. W. D. Allen, and
father-in-law, Mr. William Lott,
that brought about the organization
of this Chapter. So it is a peculiar
pleasure to again have her name on
I the roll.
The visit to the County Home on
I Thanksgiving was told of, and the
service held for the inmates.
Plans for the Lee Celebration
were discussed, and|the matter was
left with the historian, Mrs. O. D.
Blaok. Several other matters per
taining to the Chapter welfare, were
The meeting was turned over to
the historian, Mrs. Black, but she
stated that as the reports from the
General and State Convention were
so fall of informing matter for the
members, she had arranged only a
She gave several points of inter
est concerning the recent Conven
tion in Union along historical lines.
A flag will be offered next year for
the best historical work, and she
was very ambitious for the Chapter
to again have the distinction of be
ing the first in the State. She was
a guest of honor at the Convention,
and upon reouest, gave a paper on
"How We Did lt."
The report of the General Con
vention given by Miss Emma
Bouknicht, was very interesting.
The Chapter was delighted to have
her go, and thus not be represented
by proxy. The report of the State
Convention wafs told by the dele
gates, Mrs. M.T. Turnerand Miss
Zena Payne. Mrs. White, who at
tended, also gave what most im
pressed her. Awhile was spent so
cially, and the hostesp, assisted by
Misses Clevie Moyer and Maud Saw (
yer, served ices and cake, which wa?
greatly enjoyed. 1
Mr. Will Sawyer attended the
Southern Commercial Congress in
Norfolk, Va., on Dec. ll, 12 and
13th, going as the representative
irom South Carolina. He was ap
pointed by Gov. Manning.
Spelling Bee a Success.
The spelling bee which was giv
en in the court house Friday night
by the Daughters of the American
Revolution was well attended. Sev
eral hundred, besides the large num
ber who entered the contest, assem
bled to witness the spelling. Mr.
E. H. Folk acted as schoolmaster,
deporting himself with the ease ol
a veteran teacher. The referees
were Prof. Lyon and Mr. Thur
mond, who decided all matters in
dispute. It was a surprise to many
that Edgefield has such a large num
ber of good spellers, several hours
being required to "spell them down"
The record showed that the capi
tal prize offered for the best speller
wa3 won by Miss Annie Clisby.
The best speller among the ladies
was Mrs. J. G. Edwards ano! there
was a tie between Hon. B. E. Nich
olson and Col. L. W. Cheatham for
the honor of the beat speller among
the men, so they cut the big cake
offered as a prize. Among the gra
ded school pupils the honors were
won by Isabelle Byrd and Benjamin

GEORGIA WOMAN GAINS
TWENTY POUNDS ON
FOUR BOTTLES OF
SUFFERED 15 YEARS.
DOCTOES HAD TOLD HEB THAT
No MEDICINE WOULD DO HEE
"I i have gained twenty pounds
since taking Tanlac and ray im
provement in every way has been so
great that when I stand before the
looking-glass I am actually amazed
and hardly know myself," was the
remarkable statement made by Mrs.
Elizabeth Jennings, of Hepsibah,
Ga., to the Tanlac representative at
Howard's Drug Store, at Augusta,
Ga., a few days ago.
"Fifteen years ago," continued
Mrs. Jennings, "my health began
t ) fail, and the mor? medicine I
took the faster I seemed to go down
hill. My troubles multiplied until
they were many, and my condition
became complicated and very seri
ous and no one seemed to under
stand it. My stomach was.in such
bad shaoe I could not digest any
thing, and what I would eat seemed
to poison my system.
"My blood was thin and my arms
were covered with spots. My back
about my kidneys ached and hurt
me dreadfully, and I was told I bad
spinal ?effection. The rheumatio
pains all over my body were so aw
ful they were hard to bear, and my
bead ached me constantly. I lost
flesh and strength until I got so
weak I could not walk to my gar
den without help and I kept going
down until I was simply a physical
and nervous wreck, and I believe I
was all but dead. My condition
w?s too awful to even desoribe and
[ cannot tell you half of my suffer
"When a d.vy wQuld close on my
miserable existence I could think
ii nothing but another day of sui*
fering tomorrow, and I was so nerv
)ur and racked with pain I could
"I wanted to live, and my hus
band spent thousands of dollars
trying to get me well, but nothing
iid me any good. The doctors said
Lhere was no medicine that would
help me. Finally, I became so
weak and out of heart I prayed to
"When I read about the wonder
ful help other people were getting
from Tanlac I bought a bottle and
began taking it, and I began to im
prove a: once. I have t ken fou_
bottles now, and honestly I would
?ot take ten thousand doLars for
the difference in the way I feel now
and the way I felt the day I bought
my first bottle of Tanlac.
"I oan eat now and enjoy my
meals, and when night comes I can
lie down and sleep like a child. I i
do not bava any more trouble with
my kidneys and the hurting I used
to have in my back has left me and
all the rheumatic pains have gone.
My blood has thickened ap and
seems to be in good condition and
those ugly spots have left my arms
aud my head does not aohe me any
more. I do Bot know what all was
the matter with me, bat I have been
relieved of all my suffering and, as
1 have already said. I gained tweu
