Wednesday, March 16.
Banquet in Honor of Mr.
Tuesday night the large, modern
ly appointed dining room of the Dix
ie Highway Hotel presented a lovely
scene. Nearly half a hundred ladies
and gentlemen attended an elaborate
banquet given by the superintendents
, of the several departments of the Ad
dison Mills in compliment to Mr.
Henry C. Everett, Jr., of Boston, the
treasurer of the company. Mr. T. A.
Hightower, the superintendent of the
mill, who acted as toastmaster call
ed upon Mr. A. R. Sharp to invoke
divine blessings upon the occasion.
.The bountiful menu was served in
courses and at the conclusion of each
-course. Mr. Hightower called on some
one to speak. Those who responded
were Mr. A. S. Tompkins, Mr. J. H.
Caughman of Columbia, of the South
ern Railroad, Mr. J. L. Mims and
MT. M. B. Tucker. At the conclusion
of the feast Mr. Everett, the guest
of honor, was called upon. After ex
pressing his great pleasure in being
able to meet and mingle with those
connected with the Addison mills, he
referred to business conditions, the
depressed condition of cotton mills
along with all other lines of business.
Mr. Everett explained why it had
been necessary to make two. reduc
tions in the wage scale of the mill.
The mill is making hospital material
for the government which is used in
dressing wounds. During the war this
sold for $1.43 per pound, while now
the price is 45 cents per pound. Mr.
Everett made a splendid impression
upon all who heard him. His open,
frank and very sincere manner in
spired confidence. The occasion was a
very pleasant as well as_ profitable
one, and all regretted when the time
for parting came. At the conclusion
all stood and Mr. Sharpe dismissed
the very auspicious occasion with a
''Death Loves a Shining Mark"
The poet spoke truly when he
penned these words: "Death loves a
shining mark." Not only was the pass
ing away of our beloved young
friend, Dozier Lynch, last week a
striking instance of death cutting
*3own a young man on the threshhold
.of a career of unusual promise, but
xwice before in Edgefield has this
statement of the poet been very strik
ingly exemplified. In connection with
Dozier Lynch, we refer to Thomas H.
Rainsford, Jr., and John C. Sheppard,
Jr., all contemporaries and about the
?ame age. Not since the writer has
been old enough to observe the af
fair? of Edgefield do we recall three
young men of such exceptional worth
as these. How often it is that young
men, whose parents, are abundantly
able and willing to give them every
possible educational advantage, fail
-to improve the golden opportunities
at hand. Not so with these. All three
were college bred men, completing
the full course with honors.
The first to be claimed by death
"was Tom Rainsford who graduated
from the Citadel with honors. The
next claimed was John Sheppard, who
likewise was an honor graduate of
the University of South Carolina, and
the newly made mound in the village
?cemetery marks the last resting place
'nf Dozier Lynch, an honor graduate
of Davidson college, the last of this
trio of young men who, during their
short span reflected such great honor
upon Edgefield. Truly, "Death loves
a shining mark."

Marriage ?f Miss Margaret
Cothran and Mr. Julian D. Hol
It has been suspected for some
time that Cupid had some plans in
Edgefield concerning the lives of two
popular young people but their
friends did not know that a consum
mation of these plans would be real
ized so soon. We refer to the mar
riage of Miss Margaret Cothran and
Mr. J. D. Holstein, Jr., which occur
red Tuesday afternoon in Aiken at
the residence of the officiating min
ister, Rev. Mr. Henderson, pastor of
the Presbyterian churchof Aiken. To
many of their friends the marriage
was quite a surprise. Mr. Holstein
and Miss Cothran motored to Aiken,
being accompanied by Misses Ruth
and Grace Tompkins, Elizabeth
Smith, and Margaret May and Mr.
Perry Whatley. Immediately after
the ceremony Mr. and MTS. Holstein
left for Florida to spend a month.
The bride, who is a beautiful and
veiy talented young lady, was the
only daughter of the lamented Mr.
and Mrs. Wade S. Cothran of Abbe
vilile, who since the recent death of
her father has been making her home
in Edgefield with her aunts, Mrs. Su
I san B. Hill and Mrs. W. C. Tompkins.
The groom is the only son of Mr. and
Mrs. J.. D. Holstein who has been very
successful in the automobile business.
The Advertiser joins his host of
friends in wishing that the future
may be fraught with all possible good
fortune for him and his charming
young bride. Upon their return from
their wedding journey Mr. and Mrs.
Holstein will make their home with
Mr. Holstein's parents, Mr. and Mrs
Julian- D. Holstein, on Main street.
Edgefield Music Club Has Dis
The Music Club was entertained
on Wednesday of last week at the
home of Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman,
when a most delightful program was
given, Miss Arual Lebby of Sumter
and Mrs. N. G. Cooner of Columbia.
Miss Lebby has a remarkable lyric
soprano voice, and added to this is
her personal magnetism and dramatic
gifts. She is a graduate of Coker Col
lege where she went to take the reg
ular literary course and piano. One
day as she was practicing or attend
ing to something in one of the music
I rooms she was singing to herself, all
unconscious that she was expressing
herself in a gift that had not been
recognized. The teacher of voice
Miss Rowland, passed the door and
overheard this spontaneous warbling
of one of nature's masterpieces, the
human voice. She immediately spok
to Miss Lebby and urged her to cul
tivate her unusual gift. This she be
gan to do and studied voice while
she was at Coker under Miss Rowland
who now has a private studio in Bos
ton. Miss Lebby studied voice two
summers in Greenfield, Connecticut
under a specialist of renown, and
the winter of 1920 in Boston study
ing voice. While there the beauties
of her voice were so recognized that
she sang in one of the most promi
.r.ent of the churches of that city and
was a part of the Boston Symphony
Concert during a part of the season
Miss Lebby is a cousin, of Misses
Minna and Annie Bee, and .Mrs. R
A. Marsh. She sang two selections
at the Baptist prayer meeting on
Mrs. Cooner was also considered a
musical prodigy at Coker, where as
Miss Lizzie Calais she finshed the mu
sic for a degree in two years, after
wards teaching in the Batesburg High
School. She then met Mr. Cooner of
that family of musicians by nature
andtraining and a romance culminat
ed. Mr. and Mrs. Cooner now five in
Mrs. Cooner and Miss Lebby were
entertained in the home of Mrs. Till
man, and at te3? with Mr. and Mrs.
J. L. MIms.
At the Music-Club, Mr. and Mrs.
P. P. Blalock were made honorary
members. They had planned to have
the music club to meet with them, but
on account of the sad death of their
friend, Mr. Dozier Lynch, they had
to defer this. The refreshments serv
ed at MK. Tillman's home were pro
vided; by Mr. and Mrs. Blalock.
It has been decided to offer musical
prizes for the pupils of Miss Fannie
Sheppard and Miss Margaret May.
Card of Thanks.
We take this means of thanking
our neighbors and friends for their
kindness and sympathy during the sad
death of our beloved husband and
father. If opportunity is ever afford
ed us we will return their kindness in

helpful talk, touching on the work

earnest workers, a work of carrying
good literature to localities where it
is needed and other uplift work. She
ended with the mottoes of her society
which stressed looking upward, not
downward, looking forward, not back
ward, and lending a helping hand,
typifying faith hope and love-the
last of these being the greatest pow
er for real service.

Use Only Pure Seed.
Clemson College, March 12.-Re
cent issues of the Weekly News
Notes stressed the importance of
purebred seeds, particularly those of
our main crops, cotton and corn. As
has been stated, only standard va
rieties of proven- merit should be
used, avoiding the so-called "specials"
which have been handed down from
one generation to another with only
limited local improvement.
The object of seed improvement
is to acquire the best yield and quali
ty from least land at minimum cost
of production, suggests J. F. Carhery,
Extension agronomist. Pure bred
?seeds occupy, no more land, require
;no more fertilizer, or care, yet yield
.larger and better returns,
i Keeping s?eds up to highest stand
lards requires field selection, identi-J
fication of plant and crop germina
tion test, and application of good
judgment,, each factor contributing
to success as a whole.
During the past few years, we
have been able to sell nearly every
thing whjch we produce and frequent
ly there was little difference between
the price of high grade produce and
I that of low grade. But we have reach
ed a time now when quality is going
to be very important in marketing
what we raise. It will pay to have
the best quality possible.
