Fhe Edgefield Shrin? Club's
Friday, July twenty-ninth was
Shriner's Day in Edgefield. Nobles
from all over the county, South
Carolina and other states, ma^e the
historic old town their Mecca, and
were greeted with a welcome, which,
from the printed banners to the
hearty hand-grasp, was genuine.
Headquarters were established in
the commodious B. B. Jones build
ing opposite the post office. A get
together session was held here dur
ing the morning, bright music being
furnished by the Graniteville Con
Later the jolly crowd repaired to
the Graded and High Sschool build
ing, an ideal place for such a gath
ering, situated in its extensive, shady 11
A regular program was enjoyed If
in the auditorium, interspersed with | i
Capt- Less Moore, president of the
Edgefield County Shrine Club, a loy- t
al noble, and more, "one of God's r
noble men" opened the program with r
his usual genial manners. He in- s
troduced Noble B. R. Tillman, who a
was loudly applauded and lovingly i
hailed from the audience as a "Son t
of the Grand Old Man" and who
voiced the county's hearty welcome, o
Capt. Moore then gave ttfe chair a
to Noble A. H. Corley, who gracious- t
ly introduced the speakers. Judge s
William H. Thurmond was asked to e
?riye a little sketch of Edgefield n
county, in which he paid a beautiful c
tribute to Masonry and particularly
to the*Shrine order.
Next was Noble Frank Hart, of A
Columbia, who, though young in h
years, has earned the soubriquet tl
'Father of Shriners" by his splendid n
ivork. He is Past Potentate of Omar tl
Temple and Representative of the
[mperial Council. Noble Hart's talk ti
stressed the point that the Shriner's fi
Vlission was to make the world a f
setter and safer place. A
Solicitor-General A. L. Franklyn, b
if Augusta, a prominent noble in
Wee Temple, made an eloquent talk
jn the high ideals of. the Shriners.
Noble Z. V. Davidson, of Chester,
Uhief Rabban of Hejaz Temple, gave
i resume of the Shrine from its in
?piency-a sketch which showed
low this order, though thought af as
nerely social, has undertaken a mag
lificent work, and will spend mil
ions in its special hospitals, where
:rippled children can have a chance
;o be made physically fit.
Noble George T. Bryan, of Green
Mile, Past Potentate of Omar and
.iejaz Temples, was the last speaker,
t?is tender and expressive words,
:rys?allized in the poem "Glad to See
fou," fell like a benediction on the
After the concluding musical num
ler the 'cue was served in the spa
nous school dining room-which
,vas very elaborately decorated with
:he Shrine colors, red and yellow.
The several columns were entwined
with the colors, and bright garlands
were prettily draped around the en
;ire room, feathery asparagus being
used where the colorful festoons
:rossed between each window. MeJ
low Japanese lanterns suspended
from the beamed ceiling, gave a love
ly touch to the scheme, the alter
nating colors being used in their ar
rangement. Four tables stretched
across the room, on whose snowy
cloths, vases of rich red and yellow
cut flowers were spaced.
All the preceding night the savory
odor of barbecued meats had floated
out from the huge pits above the
glowing seasoned oak coals and the
cue proved to be a culinary triumph.
The menu consisted of hash, mutton,
pork ham, fricaseed ? chicken a-la
mushrooms, rice, Irish potato sakd,
sliced tomatoes with mayonnaise,
corn on the cob, cucumbers, Iceberg
lettuce, deviled eggs, French rolls,
egg bread, coffee and beer. Before
the bountiful meal Captain Moore
asked that everyone stand for the
blessing which Noble Frank Hart
One of the prominent character
istics of Shriners is the ingrained
charity which tempers the happy,
care-free atmosphere one associates
with the wearers of the Fez. With
customary thoughtfulness, the food
left after the some two hundred
guests had bountifully partaken,
was sent to many homes where there
was sickness and to those who need
ed a helping hand.
The Shrine has a wonderful mis
sion-that of keeping the joyous
nature of the boy alive in the man

Humane Society Needed in
Through the efforts of the lament^
ed Dr. J. H. Carmichael, a humane
society was organized in Edgefield
some years ago for the protection
and prevention of cruelty to dumb
animals. Such an organization should
be in existence here now. Many a
poor beast of burden would be saved
much suffering were there an active
organization of this kind in every
county seat. Even were the members
of the organization not very active,
its very . presence would be a re
straining influence upon those who
are so heartless as to neglect and
cruelly treat beasts of burden. The
Advertiser would like to see someone
;ake steps toward reviving the old or
ganization. In this connection, the
iddress before the annual meeting of
;he Humane Society of Augusta hy
ts president, Mr. A. W. Delquest is
nteresting, it being as follows:
"Since there is so much of impor
ance to be said on the subject of hii
nane work it may be well that I do
tot remain silent. I wtmld be glad tb I
peak of many matters relating to I
.nimals worthy of thought-such for I
nstance as their intellectual quail- I
ies, their language by which they
ommunicate their thoughts to each
ther,1 their keen perception of right
nd wrong in many instances, and of
he fallacy that they were created
olely for man and not for their own*
njoyment. But I will have to limit
?yself to the Augusta Humane j So
iety and its place in this community.
"A year ago I reluctantly accept
d the office, of the presidency of the
lUgusta Humane Society. I say "re
jctantly" because I well realized
hat we have many men in this com
iunity better fitted for the office
han I am. I waited in vain for somer I
ody else, but finding neither Chris- I
ian now Jew ready to take the chair 1
Dr the benefit of our dumb animal jj
riends, it became my duty to do so. I
.nd not an unpleasant duty has it I
"Augusta should not be without an
ctive humane society. I wonder if
mong all the good people of Augusta I
?ere is one who has, as Ruskin puts I
;, "looked up to heaven with an en- 1
re understanding of heaven's ways I
bout the horse?" Yes, there is one, I
know, and that is our untiring work- I
r, the secretary of this society, and I
think now I have other in mind.
"It- is not that the Augusta people
re not kindhearted. It is only a lack I
f understanding of the importance g
f a humane society on the part of
ur city fathers. If they knew what eg
; being done in other cities; if they
new the real service to the commu
ity any humane society, receiving ar
roper aid, can be; if they knew the *?
ood a humane society does, not only ^
) the animals, but how it protects - ^
ie health of the people and helps
) make better citizens, of our chil
ren, elp would not be withheld by ,
ie council, but would come forth ^
ere as in other cities.
"A fairly well-to-do community g
hould not leave the work to be done s^
y a kindhearted poor old lady at her p(
wn expense. (I refer to our secre- fc
ary.) The public sentiment is in full
ccord with the work of the society,
nd the people's representatives at
he city hall, though having many
ther duties, should not fail to do -
heir duty to this matter. All cities
hat are cities give aid financially to
heir humane societies, except Au- ^
;usta. Without aid the work of the
ociety cannot be properly carried
"It is not easy to estimate the .
nagnitude of the humane work a
lommunity like this calls for. Just q
insider for the present one animal
-the horse. We know that in our K
:ourts there are many cases of as
iaults upon man. But for each there ti
ire instances which call for at least n
wenty or thirty cases of cruel and
Ilegal assaults upon horses. Consider *
ill thc overloaded teams, fast driv- j?
ng, overworking, underfeeding, neg
ect of water, neglect to properly
shelter and protect from the weather,
tight checkreins, sores worn by im
proper harness, beating, kicking, bad
?hoeing, bad drivers and various
other forms of abuses which the
horse is subjeced to. Then extend
this estimate to the whole circle of
dumb creatures. Let it include the
cattle trains, on the railroads crowd
ed by cattle, hungry, thirsty, and
sleepless; the starving at the cattle
markets, the cruel plucking of live
fowls, the cruel methods of slaught- *
ering cattle, sheep and swine-the
destruction of useful birds; the abom- ^
inable treatment of wornout horses; ^
the cock fights; the almost unbeliev
able tortues practiced in the unnec- ^
pell much of the gloom which robs |
life of its joy. ]

ue|ce of which there would be le
ale by the bayonet, less wars ai
tore peace and prosperity.
"The grand work of humane soci
es is that they provide for the h
jane education of children in vario
pays. In connection with this I a
eminded of a little story about
reat king in the East who liv?
tiousands of years before the biri
f Christ. The story is very old ai
ras handed down from gen eratic
o generation before it was writte
own. The story is about a great kir
rho lived in India. When he came 1
he heaven of his people he toe
irith him his faithful dog. At the gal
hey were met by a shining ange
Che angel said to the king that i
vould have to leave his dog behind i
here were no dogs allowed in th
loly city. But that aroused the ire c
be king; for he was a man with
preat soul; and he said: "What! leav
ny dog? Nay, never shall a man sa
hat I deserted my faithful hound
?Vhen all my friends had failed m
?Vhen all my friends has failed me
ny dog was faithful; and in this las
lour, if he cannot enter heaven wit
ne, I shall go where he goes." Am
:he king turned to go with his dog
But then the dog changed his shape
ind rose up as a shining angel, say
ing: "Thanks, good king; I have beei
?roar guardian angel on earth anc
aow we will go hand in hand into thi
holy city." And together they went
into the holy place, where there is
no night, neither orrow nor crying."
That story is old, very old, older
than history-a story told among
heathen, to whom we send mission
aries! The story has in it honor as
well as kindness, sentiments of no
uncertain value. The Humane Society
is sentimental, but above all else it
is practical; and with all the encour
agement due it, we hope Augusta Hu
mane Society will be able to prove
itself for the coming year, more prac
tical than ever."
