Good Football Game.
Friday afternoon a goodly number
of people gathered at the old fair
?round to witness a football contest
between the high school team and a
t.jam composed of young men of the
town. The game had been the talk of
the town sports for nearly a week
and as a result there was much inter
est and enthusiasm. While both sides
played a good game, the score was
overwhelmingly in favor of the town
team, which outclassed the school
team in weight. Although they lost,
we have heard the school team highly
praised for the manner in which they
played, and too, the young men of
the town who were almost entirely
without practice deserve to have
bouquets tossed al: them. We see no
reason why othe? contests could not
be arranged. Outdoor sports should
be encouraged by every community.

A marriage which was a great sur
prise to many Edgefield people was
that of Miss Elizabeth Smith and Mr.
Douglas DePass of Columbia which
occurred Sunday afternoon. They
motored to Aiken where the cere
mony was performed by the resident
priest of the Catholic church. They
were accompanied by Miss Jeanie
Simkins and Mr. S. B. Mays, Jr.
The friends of these young people
have had reason to suspect that Cu
pid's plans would be consummated at
some future time but were not ex
pecting it so early. Miss Smith is a
daughter of Mi., and Mrs. H. A.
Smith who is genuinely loved by a
large circle of friends in Edgefield
who deeply regret chat she will hence
forth make her home in Columbia. It
ii; with reluctance that they give her
up. j ,

Mrs. S. W. Gardner Buried
The many freinds throughout the
state of Mrs. S. W. Gardner, and es
pecially those of the Sweetwater, S.
C., church community, were shocked
and distressed to leam of her death
which occurred at her residence Mon
day morning at nine o'clock.
Mrs. Gardner has been in poor
health for a number of years, but was
able to be up and about the house, so
her death was unexpected and a
great blow to her loved ones and
The funeral service? were held this
afternoon at 3 o'clock from the res-|
idence. ,The interment will be in the
Mrs. Gardner was 79 years old, she
and her husband have lived in this
community all .of their lives, and she
was loved and honored by both young j
and old. Mrs. Gardner was a conse
crated Christian woman, a devoted
wife and mother, and one of those
beautiful characters that are an in
I spiration to all who come within their
influence. She was the soul of kind
ness and hospitality and she will be
greatly missed in the church and
neighborhood. She and her husband
were such a devoted couple that the
greatest sympathy will now be ex
tended to him and to her children
whose loss is so great. ?'
The pallbearers yesterday were
Messrs Wiley Glover, W i?T Williams,, |
John Reese, T. J. Briggs, John -Mun
dy and John Mealing. The funeral
services were largely attended and
many beautiful flowers were sent to
cover the grave where she was laid
to rest.-Augusta Chronicle.
The announcemnt of the death of
Mrs. Gardner caused genuine sorrow
among her Edgefield friends. She was
a devout Christian woman. Before
her marriage she was Miss Mollie An
derson and was reared in the commu
nity in which she has resided through
out her long life. Mrs. Gardner was
the mother of six children who reflect
lasting credit and honor upon her and
her aged husband who survives her.
The Edgefield friends of Mrs. Gard
ner did not know of her illness and
were greatly surprised to learn of
her death. Besides her devoted hus
zand with whom she had passed so
many happy and helpful years, Mrs.
Gardner is survived by six children,
five sons, S. W., Jr., J. A., J. M., H.
S., and S. Q. Gardner and one daugh
ter, Mrs. J. S. Reynolds.
