Silver Tea for the F'?bl?c Li
On Monday afternoon the Civic
League gave a silver tea for the en
largement of the present library.
Miss Marie Abney, who has been so
unselfish in her work for the library,
and Mrs. W. L. Dunovant, the presi
dent of the Civic League were in
charge. A large number of ladies and
some of the gentlemen of the town
Miss June Rainsford explained li
brary methods to those assembled, in
a very interesting manner. Delight
ful iced tea and sandwiches with
mints were served. The silver offering
will go toward the sustenance of the
Child Bitten by Mad Dog.
Monday afternoon the little son of
Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Corley of the Cle
ora section was bitten on the upper
lip by a dog that appeared to have
hydrophobia. It was at once killed
and the head carried to Columbia and
an examination indicated that the
dog was affected with rabies. The lit
tle child was carried to the madstone
of Mr. Bush in the Philippi section
but the stone did not adhere to the
wound. The Pasteur treatment is al
so being administered. The parents
of the dear little boy have the as
surance that those who take Pasteur
treatment after being bitten by a dog
with rabies rarely ever become the
victim of the disease. There is every
reason to believe that the little fellow
is safe, yet his parents are taking
Mrs. Jas. S. Byrd Entertains.
Thursday afternoon Mrs. Jas. S.
Byrd entertained delightfully for her
many friends. The occasion took the
form of a rook and bridge party. The
hall, parlor and dining room were
filled with tables at which sat a host
of card enthusiasts.
Dorothy Perkins roses were used
for decoration. Refreshing punch was
served during the afternoon as the
guests progressed from table to table.
The out of town guests were Mrs.
Julius Vann, Mrs. Frank Miller and
Mrs. Addie Wise of Trenton and Miss
Hortense Marshall of Boston, Mass.
At the conclusion of the game it
was found that Mrs. J. D. Holstein
had won the first bridge prize, while
the consolation fell to Miss Annie
Bee. Misses Elizabeth Smith and Ju
lia Roddey drew for the rook prizes.
Miss Roddey was the winner.
'Delightful refreshments, consist
ing of iced tea and a salad course,
concluded the happy afternoon.

Birthday of Mrs. Ellen Young
blood as Written for the
An occasion of many pleasantries,
was the birthday anniversary of Mrs.
Ellen Youngblood at her home at
Blakedale, last Thursday, May 8th.
This is a superb suburban home, of
Greenwood and this excellent fam
ily, Mrs. Ellen Youngblood, her
daughters, Misses Bessie and L^lla1*,
also her son, Mr. A. W. Youngblood 1
and family live there. A smile of wei- 1
come from this lovable mother and i
family awaited us all and everywhere ?
was cheery with bowls of ?aul Ney- $
ron and American Beauty roses, ]
while tall vases held the fragrant <
pink and white peonies sent by \
friends of the sweet parent, grand i
and great grand parent to be with <
the loved ones who Had met in the j
home to celebrate this annual, and i
much anticipated occasion. <
The loved mother was just the ?
same dear self. She met the guests ]
and bade them "glad to see you."
And as the little tokens of love that ]
were handed her we could see that ?
usual smile play about her restful ?
face. All remembered her, and the
two sweet grandchildren, handsome j
Master Herman and darling baby, l
Mary, were not forgetful of her.
The noonhour brought a tempting
repast. Two long tables arranged for i
the picnic dinner, which made them .
fairly groan to hold the great dishes j
of ham, chicken, dressing, salads, (
macaroni, rice, cakes in abundance j
and many kinds, iced tea in abun- ?
dance. But in the cerite of the table
was the birthday cake, which was im- ;
mense all in pink icing, and illumined
with 87 tapers of different colors,
each taper to represent a year of this
dear mother's years, who is well pre
served, a highly cultured lady, as
modest as a lily, and just as erect as
'can be. She wears her years with
Christian dignity and her faculties
are ever quick and entertaining.
As a conversationalist, Mrs. Young

forgetful to entertain strangers. Be- :

Overland Model 90 Travels
Seven Days and Nights
COVERED 4,370.1 MILES
Gear Was Sealed in High,
Making Hardest Possible
Test on All Car's Work
Remarkable automobile perform
ances are not as frequent these
days as they were four or five sea
sons ago; the American automobile
manufacturer has attained so very
high a standard of product. That
may explain why so much unusual
attention has been attracted dur
ing the last few days to a new
world's performance record made
by an Overland stock car, Model
New from the factory, this Model
90 was taken from the salesrooms
of the Carhart Motor Company at
Oklahoma City, Okla., on March
29th, and driven to the lobby of
the Lee-Huckins Hotel. There the
gear shift lever was disconnected
from the low, middle and reverse
gears, and the gear-box was seal
ed in high. Thc motor was start
ed; the car left the hotel and did
not return for seven days; that
was April 5th. -
The Overland 90, driven by a re
lay of four drivers, ran night and
day, the motor never stopping for
168 continuous hours. The drivers
had no advantage of gear shifting
during the two days of rain on
muddy roads and the twelve to fif
teen hours they spent each 24 hour
day on good and bad city pavements,
in the rush of traffic, and on the
Oklahoma roads. It has been said
that if a motor car will stand up
on an Oklahoma road, it will endure
in any other section of the world.
In these seven days and nights
during which the gear could not .je
shifted from high, nor the motor
stopped for carburetor adjustment
or spark plug change, the Mode! 90
broke the world's record for a test
of this kind. The speedometer, care
fully checked, showed that it had
traveled 4,370.1 miles. That is prac
tically one-sixth around the world,
or a distance equal to a trip from
New York to Los Angeles and back
across the southern trial to Oklaho
This remarkable non-stop perfor
mance in high gear exceeded the
next best record ever made by 129.1 |
Another unusual record was afc
taincd by the four drivers of this
Oklahoma car. The A. A. A. record
for a 24-hour non-stop, gear-sealcd
i i-high run is 587 miles. That mile
