decided to join the Federation,
which will mean much to it, for
this personal contact with the rep
resentative women in the State will
give life and warm interest to any
club. The afternoon's study was
devoted to "Mid-Summer Night's
Dream," there being several good
papers read. The hostess served a
Mrs. Archie Lewis entertained
the Young Matron's club on Friday
af ternooD, and two very happy hours
were spent with these congenial
friends, several new members hav
ing been added. The time was oc
cupied in chatting, sewing and
music. The hostess, assisted by
Mrs. J. H. Payne, served a salad
course with coffee. Mrs. Edwin
Mobley is president of the club.
During business it was decided to
make a separate office of secretary
and treasurer, as the work of the
club had branched out on larger
lines since organization, the secre
tary and treasurer being Miss Zena
Payne. Mrs. Tom Hoyt was elected
treasurer and Miss Clara Sawyer
The club has a most delightful
year book, and the subject for the
afternoon was "Ancient Orators,"
Mrs. O. D. Black giving a good pa
per on this. The chief singers of
this period were told of by Mes
dames J. W. Marsh, C. P. Corn
and Miss Harms. The musical se
lections were by Handel, and were
given by Mrs. G. D. Walker, Misses
Heyward and Bouknight. The hal
lelujah chorus from the "Messiah"
closed the program. During the
social period the hostess served
tempting sandwiches and punch.
Southerners are noted for their
warm heartedness and chivalrous
nature, and this element is found in
other States also.
The Pi Tan club met on Thurs
day afternoon in the home of Mrs.
E. K. Mobley, and at this occasion
little Nina, the daughter of Mrs.
Frank Williams, one of the mem
bers, was given a surprise shower by
the club. This box was filled with
many pretty gifts, and the mother
thanked each one for this lovely
thought of her little baby girl.
Awhile was spent socially and all
enjoyed the repast served.
On Sunday evening as a few W.
C. T. JJ. delegates were returning to
their homes from the Stale conven
tion at Aiken, and were waiting at
Graniteville for the Columbia train
it was learned that there had been a
wreck, aud that it would be ah hour
or more before a train .could get to
them, and midnight before home
was reached. Graniteville offers no
conveniences for passengers, there
being no fire or lights, and the few
ladies stood out in the star-light
shivering and cold, afraid to sit in
the daik wailing room. Near by j
was a uniformed soldier of camp |
Hancock of Augusta, waiting -for ?
the South bound train. He heard
one of the ladies speak of how cold
she was, and stepping up, be took
his overcoat off, and placing it on
her shoulders said: *I am not at all
cold; wont you please put this
around you? I wish I had some
further way to show my apprecia
tion of what good Southern women
are doing." He came and stood
nearby the group, as if for protection,
for there were many loafers, and
factory people around, as is seen at
This soldier was from Pennsylva
nia, and he spoke in highest terms
of praise of how these troups were
faring down South.
He was deeply mortified that a
few of the soldiers of his State were
not conducting themselves in a gen
tlemanly manner, and hung his head
in shame as he told the delegates of m
one of his company having per- ?
suaded a civilian's car to elope with
This soldier, with the delegates,
said he was returning from Aiken,
having had a three days' furlough.
Said he had read of 1 'possum
hunts," and of the queer, furry
things caught, and that he had act
ually been on a hunt and caught
two, and was going to give a 'pos
sum dinner to a few special soldier
boys. This seemed to be a very
great incident to him, and the din
>ner was going to be a great event,
as none bad ever seen or tasted
'possum. He w as told to have pota
toes roasted around it, and as a bev
erage serve "branch water," as this
has been said to be the only thing
that goes along with the o'possum.
This courteous soldier stood near
by until help did arrive, and he saw
the little group safely on board.
This was only an incident, but it
goes to show that the soldier is not
what we sometimes think.
Every uniformed man should be,
and perhaps is, a protector and de
fender for his country in more ways
than shouldering a musket.

That's What John Bunyon Johnson,
the Well-Known Automobile
Salesman, Says of Martin's

that I have taken Martin's Liver
Medicine and obtained most desir
able results. Martin's Liver Medi

not gripe nor inconvenience the
taker in any way. It acts positively
and yet gently upon the liver and it
is my opinion that it is superior to
any liver medicine sold."

vegetable in ingredients, contains
no poisonous calomel, is pleasant to
take and is sold with the standing
guarantee that if it does not give
the effect desired, the empty bottle
