County Democratic Convention
If the little interest wich was tak
en in the county Democratic conven
tion Monday is an indication of the
state of mind of the people, politi
cally, the campaign about to open
will be about the quietest one ever
held in Edgefield county. Hardly a
score of people, besides the delegates
from the clubs, attended the conven
tion and a sort of indifference seem
ed to permeate the atmosphere that
-was positively chilling. Certainly it
-was in very marked contrast to many
convention of the past, when enthu
siasm and partisanship waxed to a
white heat. However, of the two ex
tremes, we greatly prefer the one of
Monday. Better not enough "pep"
than too much ginger.
The convention was called to or
der by Mr. J. L. Mims, the retiring
' county chairman, and the invocation
was offered by Rev. G. W. M. Taylor.
A temporary organization, which was
afterwards made the permanent or
ganization, was effected by the elec
tion of Mr. J. H. Cantelou, chairman
and Col. S. B. Mays, secretary. Mr.
James 0. Sheppard, upon the sugges
tion of Col. Mays, was made perma
nent secretary. Col. Mays was elect
Six delegates to the State conven
tion were elected by acclamation, as
follows: Ex-Gov. J. C. Sheppard, Mrs.
J. H. White, o:: Johnston, Mrs. J. L.
Mims, Hon. M. P. Wells, Hon. S. T.
Williams and Mr. C. T. Burnett. Mr.
B. R. Tillman was elected a member
of the State executive committee and
TMr. J. H. Cantelou was elected coun
ty chairman. No resolutions of any
kind were introduced.
Among the delegates from the lo
cal clubs were- i.fr 1 i |, 1

ty at which women sat as members
clothed with equal authority with

Mother dear, you're getting feeble,
And your form is bending, too;
In many ways you're fast fading,
But your heart still beats true.
Your hair once so black and wavy
Is now streaked with silvery white,
And your eyes are growing dimmer,
Which were once so blue and bright.
On your brow are lines of trouble,
That you bore for us all;
And the cares that caused these fur
Are too numerous to recall.
Your hands are stained and shriveled
From the toilsome hours you spent,
To make our home bright afld cheer
And to keep our hearts content.
Though in looks you've changed a
You wear that same smile on your
And to us you grow even prettier;
No one can ever take your place.
