The following announcement
which appeared in the Augusta
Chronicle Sunday morning was read
with much interest in Edgefield be
cause of the wide popularity of the
. "Mr. and Mrs. Charles Elliott May

gagement of their daughter, Marga

Asheville, Fla., the marriage to be
solemnized in June."
Few, if any, young ladies who
have been reared in Edgefield have
had more friends than Miss Margaret
May. From her childhood she has
been by common consent one of the
community's favorites. Being always
gentle, amiable, sweet spirited and
; having a smile and pleasant word for
all with whom she met, she has made
herself universally beloved. .This ac
counts for the very keen interest al
ready being taken in her approaching

The Death pf John Graves.
On Friday last, March the thirty

home of Mrs. Charity Lou Graves and
took her only son, "Little" John.

Elizabeth and Evelyn, to care for,
her husband having preceded the son
about six years ago.
Little John was such a good child,

power to stay the hand of death, but

Services at Antioch and Red
Dr. C. J. Thompson of the GenerT
al Board, Columbia, Rev. A. T. Allen
and Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman of the
First Baptist church of Edgefield vis
ited Antioch and Red Hill churches
last Sunday, April 2. Although the
"flu" was raging in the Antioch sec
tion, a goodly crowd was present.
Talks were made by all three visitors
in behalf of the 75-Million Cam
paign with special emphasis on the
necessity of systematic giving. The
church readily responded to the ap
peals and adopted the semi-monthly
plan of giving. After the service, a
bountiful dinner was served by the
good women of that church on the
grounds. There was no sign of hard,
times appareat and the good things
provided would tempt the appetite
of the most fastidious. This thought
fulness and kind hospitality was
greatly enjoyed and appreciated by
the visiting speakers.
At three o'clock a similar service
was held at the Red Hill Baptist
church. This is one of the largest and
best country churches in the asso
ciation and a good crowd greeted us.
This church formerly had this plan of
[riving but it had not been kept up.
After listening to the advantages as
well as the necessity of adopting the
scripture plan of giving, the church
voted to revise it In this time of de
pression, it is realized that this is the
only means of adequately financing
the kingdom. We feel that the day's
service will set forward the work of
the Lord in these churches and all
others where representatives of the
General Board spoke.
