The Old Maids' Association.
The Old Maids' Association, a far
cical entertainment will be given in
the Opera House early in July for|
the benefit of the Episcopal church.
In this wonderfully amusing and
mirth giving entertainment a large
number of old maids band together
to devise means for securing hus
bands. The reports of the committee
on Matrimonial Outlook, and the
committee on Persuading Brethren,
are intensely amusing. Each spinster
advocates some plan whereby the de
sired end may be accomplished, but
none appears feasible.
In the moment of their despair,
Prof. Mekerneux, the inventor of the
marvelous rejuvenating machine, of
fers his services. One after another
enters his machine and a moment
later steps out completely transform
ed 'into a charming young lady. A
full cast of characters will be an
nounced next week.
Just received a nice line of ladies'
white canvas and kid slippers which
we are offering at reduced prices.

Death of Mr. John Brimson.
Edgefield friends w?re deeply sad
dened by the announcement of the
death of Mr. John -Branson Friday
afternoon at the home of his daugh
ter, Mrs. Cinnie Sewell, in Augusta.
While he has been making his home
1 in Augusta with his daughter for sev
eral years, Mr. Brunson was an Edge
field man and he spent most of his
long life of nearly 86 years in this
county, making his home in Parks
ville before moving to Augusta. Be
fore becoming greatly enfeebled a
few weeks just prior to his death,
Mr. Brunson possessed wonderful
strength and vigor, both m mind and
body, for one of his advanced age.
He was the eldest of eight sons of
the lamented Rev. D. D. Brunson,
one of the sturdy, strong, virile and
consecrated characters of old Edge
field, a man who impressed as but
few men not only his generation but i
the generations that have come after j
him have felt the influence of the
ministry of Rev. D. D. Branson.
Mr. Brunson was a Confederate
veteran, having rendered faithful
and distinguished service during 'the
years of the Civil War. After the
war closed he had a leading part in
restoring order out of the chaos that
followed the strife of the sixties. He
was for many years a member of the
Baptist church of Parksville. The
funeral was conducted Saturday
morning at the home of his daughter
in Augusta and the body was carried '.
to Parksville where it was interred in
the family square in the cemetery .
Sunday morning. L
Mr. Brunson is survived by his de
voted wife, four uaw jhters, Mrs. Cin
nie Sewell, Mrs. Clint Parks, Mrs. n
Joseph Edmunds and Miss Emmie D
Brunson and four sons, Mr. S. A.
Brunson, Mr. C. A. Brunson, Mr.
John Brunson and Mr. Joseph Brun- j j
