Mrs. L. S- Kernaghan Enter
tains Music Club With Miss
Miriam Norris as Belov
The September meeting of- the
Philharmonic Music club, with Mrs.
L. S. Kernaghan as the cordial hos
tess, was a very charming affair, at
which a gifted member, Miss Miriam
Norris, was the popular honoree.
Mrs. Kernaghan greeted the guests
on their arrival at her pretty home,
and Miss Genevieve Norris and Mar
jorie Tompkins served delicious fruit
punch in the wide hall, where potted
plants and asparagus gave a pleasing
Little Movte Parker Kernaghan
and Allen Samuels, Jr., gave the af
ternoon's cunning favors, little score
cards with a bar of music on them,
tied with pink ribbon.
The guests were seated in the liv
ing room, where potted ferns and
pink roses added to the dainty fur
nishings of the large room.
The program opened with a vocal
solo "The Sunlight of Her Eyes" by
Miss Margaret May, with Miss Gladys
Padgett as accompanist on the piano.
Mrs. B. L. Mims played Edward
Grieg's "Wedding March." "Seig
mund's Love Song" by Wagner was
rendered by Mrs. H. C. Mitchell. As j'
Mendelssohn's Wedding March was
played by Mrs. Mitchell, the double
doors into the dining room were op
ened by the two little boys, Motte
and Allen, Jr., who pulled the pink
silk ribbons attached to an artistic
love bow, fashioned of pink crepe,
releasing a shower of rice upon the
"bride-to-be, a:? she passed through.
Mrs. B. B. Jones then presented a
miniature bride bearing the instrip
tion "Love and Best Wishes from the
Philharmonic Music Club." Congratu
lations and good wishes were then ex
tended by the officers, who were the
reception committee presiding in the
.dining room: Mrs. B. L. Mims, vice
president; Mrs. Wm. Mooney, secre
tary; Mrs. M. B. Tucker, program
chairman and Mrs. A. E. Padgett.
The tea table was exquisite with
its cluny lace centerpiece over pink,
on which was an arrangement of
ferns and pink roses over which the
pink shaded chandelier cast a beau
tiful glow. Comports of pink and
white bon bons were reflected in
the polished wood of the handsome
table, which was sprinkled with dewy
Pink and white block cream with
.cake was served by Misses R?sela
Parker and Justine Cantelou.
The climax to the beautiful affair
came when Mrs. B. B. Jones gra
ciously presented the set of Madeira
napkins, which was a gift from the
music club to the gifted honoree,
whose membership in the club has
added so to its enjoyment.
The guests were invited to regis
ter in the Bride's book, whose every
page contained a musical quotation,
by Mrs. H. C. Mitchell and Miss
xThe favor for the bride was a dear
little Kewpie playing on a violin, re
presenting the great art, Music, an
appropriate souvenir for one who is
so gfited a musician from a club
whose existence is founded on the

^Warning to Sweet Potato
Clemson College, Sept. 19.-Sweet
potatoes should be dug before frost
or continued cold weather approach
ing frost, according to the Extension
Service horticulturists, who warn
that the sweet potato is a tropical
plant and that both vines and roots
may be damaged by temperature
above the frost point.
The prevalent idea that the vines
must be frosted before the potatoes
are dug is wrong and the practice is
dangerous. It is unsafe to wait later
than the dates below to gather pota
toes. Many growers who waited until
frost last year lost their entire crop,
regardless of the kind of storage
The approximate earliest date of
the first killing frost in the Piedmont
section is October 23, in the Sandhill
section November 1, in the Coastal
section November 9.
Of the two evils, immaturity and
frost injury, the former is least in
jurious, as the immature potatoes
can be kept, while frostbitten pota
toes cannote be kept under any con
Vines should not be removed ex
cept from potatoes to be dug the
same day. Experiments and observa
tions indicate that: potatoes so treat
ed are hard to cure. However, if
frost kills the vines before potatoes
can be dug, the main stem should be
clipped at the base of plant before'
thawing takes place.
The house should be filled within
two or three days, and curing should
fcegin on first day, depending on
weather conditions, and continued
ten to fourteen days depending, upon
There is more danger resulting
from under-curing than over-curing,
the latter being indicated by the ap
pearance of long sprouts, a condition
which is undesirable but more safe
than the absence of all sprouts.
Those interested in the building of
a sweet potato storage house or the
harvesting and handling of sweet po
tatoes, should write to the Extension
Service, Clemson College, for Exten
sion bulletin 47, Harvesting, Grad
ing and Storing Sweet Potatoes.
Sudden Death of Mr. Ed
The Edgefield friends of Mr. R. E.
Cheatham were deeply shocked to
learn of his very sudden death which
occurred at his home on the Martin
Town road about one o'clock Friday.
He was att his store as usual Fri
day morning, enjoying his normal
health, and went to his home nearby
for dinner at noon. Soon after leav
ingthe dining room he complained to
Mrs. Ch natham of feeling very un
well and she insisted that he rest for
a while instead of returning at once
to the store. He still complained of
feeling bad and in a short time be
came unconscious. Before medical
attention could be given him life be
came extinct. Heart failure is pre
sumed to have been the cause of his
sudden death, as physicians have in
the past treated him for heart dis
This sudden death of one who was
so highly esteemed was a great shock
to the community and to Mr. Cheat
ham's friends everywhere. For sev
eral years 'he had engaged in mer
chandising very successfully and be
ing generous and public spirited he
will be greatly missed in the com
munity. Mr. Cheatham was a member
of Red Hill church, where the fu
neral was conducted Saturday after
noon at four o'clock. He is survived
by his devoted wife, who before her
marriage was Miss May West, and
two small children of his former mar

Du ch Prophet Makes Forecast
September 25 is the central date
for a very decided change in the
weather from hot to cool-possibly
to cold, says the Dutch Weather
Prophet. In northern and northwest
ern latitudes, he predicts, it will be
cold with frost previous to even the
central date, which will move the
cold wave for the West forward to
Wednesday and probably~~to the same
date for the East and Southeast, the
time for the "germination" of the
cool wave extending from September
18 to 25. September 7 was another
period for a cool wave and it occur
red in the West and passed north
ward, having been deflected by the
San Antonio disturbance.
The coming winter will be the
coldest since 1917-18, he says. Three
snows are indicated for the territory
south and east of the Blue Ridge.
Indications at the same time are to
the effect that the snow will extend
far south, and the winter will be ac
companied besides by numbers of
"These forecasts will be confirmed
more decidedly October 1, together
with predictions as to possible
amounnt of precipitationn during the
winter and prospects for a grain
crop (wheat and oats) in this sec
tion," the prophet said yesterday.
Precipitation will occur September
in the Soi:'h and Southwest and it
may include Columbia and vicinity
in its progress northeastward, ac
cording to his prediction.-The State.
Artistic Shower Given by Miss
R?sela Parker for Miss
The Parker home on Columbia
avenue, where so many lovely parties
have been given in the past years was
the scene on last Thursday afternoon
of one of the prettiest functions ever
given in Edgefield, when Miss R?sela
Parker, that very accomplished young
hostess, entertained with a linen
shower in honor of the season's pop
ular bride-elect, Miss Miriam Norris.
Mrs. Hugh Mitchell and Miss Ma
mie Dunovant welcomed the guests
on the spacious veranda, at one eiid
of which was a punch stand, artis
tically decorated with fragrant pine
needles and burrs, where Misses Mae
Rives and Mary Marsh served fruit
At the front door little Motte Par
ker and Elizabeth Parker pinned
cunning golden wedding bells on the
The front hall and living room
were all thrown into one and exqui
sitely decorated in pink and white
chrysanthemums. The lights were
shaded with pink and had showers of
pink ribbons from them in which were
caught tiny blossoms. Myriads of
tapers in silver candlesticks added to
the pretty decorations giving an ex
tra soft glow.
Mrs. L. S. Kernaghan and Miis
Marjorie Tompkins assisted the hos
tess in greeting the visitors at^ne
front door. The bride was enthroned
in a beautifully decorated chair in
the living room, placed beneath the
wide mantel which was banked with
chrysanthemums, set off with the
gleaming pink tapers.
Mrs. M. B. Tucker; sang "At Dawn
ing," after the guests assembled in
the living room, and Mr. Fred Parker,
Jr., of Johnston, the very talented
young cousin of the hostess, played
a number of selections on the piano,
his brilliant performing adding to
Dainty score cards were passed
around containing a jumble of let
ters, out of wihch a bride's trousseau
list could be made. Mrs. Sam Nichol
son won first prize, a lovely bud vase,
which she presented to the honoree,
and to Mrs. Milton Parker went the
booby, a useful memorandum book
with attached pencil.
After the contest, to the strains of
Lohengrin's Wedding March, played
by Mr. Parker, came in little Eliza
beth Parker bearing an adorable
miniature bride for the honoree, who
then was conducted to the hall. Here
the dividing portieres were drawn, re
vealing a rustic scene in the rear
hall. Pines reared their rraceful
heads, cat tails and ferns nodded 'in
the summer breeze, grey moss add
ed its wonderful grace and an old
fashioned well gave a realistic touch.
The bride wa. invited to draw up
the green buckets from the cool
depths, and as she did Mrs. M.? B.
Tucker, Miss Margaret May, Misses
Sophie and Sadie Mims sang "The
Old Oaken Bucket." As the refrain
was reached the bucket appeared lad
en with lovely gifts for the bride,
an array which was proof of the deep
interest taken in the coming mar
riage of this popular honoree.
Mrs. P. P. Blalock, Jr., and Miss
Justine Cahtelou served a delicious
course of pink and white block cream
with angel food cake and pink and
white mints, concluding the elabo
