Marriage of Miss Beulah Cloer
to Mr. Julian H. Morgan.
The Advertiser has been interest
ed in this marriage for several rea

Cloer has been one of our valued cor
resdondents for some time since the
family of Mr. Cloer of the Meeting
Street section moved into our county
from Lenoir, N. C.
This is an incident like the shoe
maker's family never having shoes,
and the newspaper man's family nev
er getting a write up. A* Miss Cloer
was our correspondent, when her
marriage took place, there was no
one left "to tell the tale," and so we.
had to find it all out by hearsay.
Mr. Morgan is a son of our friend,
Mrs. Julia Morgan, and the marriage
took place at Johnston early in
March, the ceremony being perform
ed by Rev. W. S. Brooke.
Mr. and Mrs. Morgan will make
their home at the Kinnaird place
near Meeting Street.

removed to their former home in
North Carolina. We are glad to have
Mrs. Morgan remain in Edgefield
permanently as a member of one of
our best and most honored families.

Statement From Mr. Reese.
Dear Mr Editor:
Recently I had the misfortune to be
robbed while coming from Johnston
to Edgefield and had taken from me
one hundred and twenty-eight dol
lars; one hundred and fourteen dol
lars of which belonged to the state.
Though I regret to state such a
thing, it has been rumored that I
was not held up, and evidently some
of my enemies are responsible for
such report. I hope the public will
wait and see just exactly the state of
affairs before they allow themselves
to form an opinion. I have been liv
ing in Edgefield thirty-odd years and
my reputation for truth and honesty
has never been attacked.

Ransom and Mr. Fred Turner were
quietly married by Rev. W. P. Brooke
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John R.
Bryan, only a few friends witnessing
the occasion. These are progressive
young people and have a host of
friends who wish for them a life
crowded with our Lord's choicest'
blessings, and an ever deepening
sense of His presence and power.
