All-Night 'Possum Hunters.
Monday night "No Man's Land,"
somewhere down in the Horn't Creek
community, was invaded by a bunch
of Edgefield 'possum hunters, some
of them real blooded sports. They
journeyed to the hunting ground soon
after nightfall and, losing their way
about midnight, wandered in the
woods till broad day, when they re
turned to Edgefield weary and worn.
But their midnight meanderings were
not in vain, for they brought with
them eight fat marsupials for a feast.
Among the hunters were Wesley
Stewart/ Bunch Timmerman, Chal
mers Hughes, Willie Dunovant, Foy
Vause, Bud Bryant, John Mays and
a colored man. While all of them at
times slipped and slided on the straw,
first up and then down, but Mr. Vause
was the only one to completely lose
his "understanding," with the result
that he in the twinkle of an eye
found himself going over the bank of
the creek with a broadside splash in
the water, which was of October tem
perature. Being a game sport, he was
undismayed by this and help to "tail"
as many marsupials as any of the
