Of great interest to a large num
ber of Edgefield friends was the wed
ding on last Thursday evening of Mr.

palms and ferns with large clusters
of pink and white hydrangeas around
the altar and tall candelabra-throw
ing a soft light from the numerous
candles on the beautiful scene.
Preceding the ceremony a lovely
musical programme was rendered by
Miss Sarah Gardiner, violinist, cousin
of the bride, and Mr. Charlie Curtis
and Mrs. B. F. Riley, who sang sev

As the notes of Lohengrin's Wed

party entered and were grouped in
an artistic manner around the chan
cel. The groomsmen were Mr. J. W.
Tucker, LaGrange, Mr. Crosland, of
Bennettsville, S. C. and Mr. Boyd
Bast?n. The maid of honor, Miss
Kate Perry wore turquoise blue tulle
and her flowers were Killarney ros
es, showered with sweet peas. The
bridesmaids in dainty pink tulle
dresses carried bouquets of pink
gladioli and roses and were Miss
Elsie Tucker of Conyers, Miss Rosa
Gardiner and -Miss Frances Scott.
The two little flower girls, Martha
West and Eleanor Binns wore lovely
pink organdie dresses and scattered
white flowers as they preceded the
bride who entered with her brother,
iMr. Dempsey Binns of Washington.
She was met at the altar by the
bridegroom attended by his best man,

^of white tulle and satin entraine over
Which her veil arranged 'in cap ef

graceful folds. Her bouquet, of bride

After the ceremony a reception
"was held at the home of the bride's
parents where a large number of
friends gathered. A salad course and
ice cream and cake were served. In
the living room a beautiful array of
presents was shown and of especial
interest were tokens from many of
the members of the Sunday school
class and Junior B. Y. P. U. of which

TEACHING THRIFT TO THE
The parents and teachers of every
child wish him to have the benefit
of greater advantages than they have
had. That is one of the reasons why
parents often make great personal
sacrifices to educate their children
for m". ? congenial work than they
themselves have enjoyed and interesf
in his pupils in one of the few com
pensations for the trials and insuffi
cient financial returns of a teacher's
To make the principles of thrift
effective to the child, they must be
put into constant practice both at
home and in school and must have a
direct connection with his daily ilfs.
Every educator realizes the tr?
mendous value of teaching thrift and
industry to little children both for
their immediate benefit and in anti
cipation of their future success. Par
ents who have not had a training in
personal economy are anxious to
have their children realize that the
practice of thrift and an appreciation
for the value of money are essential
to-success and self respect. Thrift
principles enter into every relation
ship and problem of daily life.
I Training in economy is equally
necessary for the child of parents in
poor or moderate circumstances and
for those who are rich. In our com
plex American life it is possible that
the poor child of today may be the
rich man of tomorrow, and that the
child born with a silver spoon in his
mouth may sometime be thrown upon
his own resources.
It is never too early in a child's
training to begin the teaching and
practice of thrift. Tales of the habits
of animals and insects furnish many
examples of this quality. The simple
story of the red squirrel will interest
any child. Tell him that before cold
weather begins the red squirrel
builds a comfortable and durable
home, that during the summer and
fall he gathers nuts and acorns to
provide food for the winter time
when snow covers the ground. Con
trast the habits of the spendthrift
rabbit, who saves nothing and! who
consequently suffers from hunger.
The thrift and enterprise of the
bee and the ant may be contrasted
with the laziness pf the grasshopper,
I and,, the butterfly. The Book of Prov- j
erbs and Aesop's Fables contain
many a story which shows the stu
pidity of extravagance and laziness.
Thrift may also be taught by the
careful use of materials, in the
??school room by economy in handling
fchalk, clay, paper and other articles,
and in the home by careful use of J
furniture and the elimination of I
waste in household necessities such
as fuel and light.
In every walk through the streets
to and from school, material for
consideration -presents itself. The ex
ample of the fire department, a
source of interest to every child, may
be used to show how loss of life and
property is prevented. The public
cans for rubbish are another public
economy, for by their use we de
crease the duties of the street-sweep
The means of practicing the prin
ciples of thrift are numerous. Child
ren may be encouraged to buy the
govenment Thrift Stamps issued bjr
the United States Treasury, or to
have accounts in Postal or Savings
Banks. Through these channels the
systematic saving of money may be
brought home to the child in an at
tractive and profitable way, and the
sums so saved conserved and invest
ed. Americans have been called a na
tion of economic illiterates. They are
spendthrifts by habit. It may not be
possible to eradicate the vice of ex
travagance in this present generation
but it can.be stamped out of the boys
and girls of the future by continued
The influence of economy is far
reaching, and instruction in thrift is
a personal, a municipal, and a patri
otic duty which both parents and
teachers owe to children, the com
munity and the country.
Why That Headache?
When you know the cause of a dis
ease a cure may often be effected.
This is particularly true of headache.
Headache often results from consti

the stomache which may be corrected
by taking a dose or two of Chamber

are easy to take and mild and gentle
