Memorial Day Exercises Great
" May 10th, is always a red letter
day in Edgefield, when the Daught
ers of the Confederacy set apart a
time to pay tribute to the soldiers
who died in battle, and the,veterans
-who still live among us.
At ll o'clock Wednesday in the
Opera House, a large audience gath
ered, including the faculty and stu
dents of the High and Graded school.
JRev. G. W. M. Taylor presided over
the meeting and Rev. A. T. Allen led
Mks Gladys Lawton gave with ten
derness and expression that Southern
selection "The Jacket of Gray."
The Greek orchestra and Miss
Lois Mims gave a very attractive se
lection, Mr. Contipidis accompanying
with a vocal number.
The Memorial Wreath was filled
"with a flower for each Confederate
soldier, daughter of the Confederacy,
and wife of a veteran who had died
- since last Memorial Day. The signifi
cance of this Memorial was explained
by Mrs. A. A. Woodson and she plac
ed .the-roses as the names were called
jandvthe wreath was later placed on
the monument. w
Mr. J. L. Mims introduced the
speaker of the occasion, Mr. Henry
C. Tillman of Greenwood, who made
a very appropriate and entertaining
address. He was applauded when he
was introduced as the "worthy son of
an illustrious father." As he took his
seat at the close of his address, many
comments of approval were heard. A
most fitting close to his address was
when he expressed the opinion that
Hight should be the rule of every-life,
and said as an expression of his
Jaith in Divine leadership, "Lead
Kindly Light, Lead Thou Me: On."
Mr. Tillman left Edgefield immediate
ly after the program was finished to
meet speaking engagements at other
Automobiles were in waiting at
the Opera House steps to carry the
veterans and their wives to the Ad
dison lawn where dinner was most
bountifully served. Hash in abun
dance, and as Mr. George Adams said,
made by the finest cook in the world,
Mr..A. A. Edmunds, pies and cake,
. salads and bread, pickle, tea and cof
fee was served in convenient style
and plentifully. One veteran said
they had good dinners at the first re
union and all the successive ones,
but this was the best of all.
The Daughters of the Confederacy
appreciated the 'generosity of Mr.
Abrom Daitch in very graciously giv
ing them the use of the Opera House
.free of cost.
Those seated on the platform dur
ing the exercises were all who took
.part on the program, Mrs. J. M.
Wright, the president of the chapter,
and Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman, chair
.man of the program committee.

WAS NOT HIS LUCKY DAY
Trolley Car Patron Got Into Trouble
When He Attempted to Get
Away With Umbrella.
Young Bob McIntosh had always
prided himself on his honesty and up
rightness, but it was a rainy night
when he saw an umbrella apparently
deserted on a seat In the trolley caf.
Hs picked it up and examined it. It
could not be very valuable, ft was
hardly worth while turning lt in to
the motorman of the one-man car and
-the walk from the trolley to the
home of young Bob McIntosh was a
good four blocks IE the pouring rain.
As the car neared the stree?, says
the New York Sun, the honest young
man looked arouna and seeing that
none of his fellow passengers was
noticing him he picked up the um
biella and walked up to the motor
man's platform. There with the glib
ness of one. with a guilty conscience
he conversed with the pilot until the
?ir drew up at his street.
"Well, good night!" said young Bob
McIntosh as he lightly stepped from
the car and raised his umbrella.
"Good night" quoth the motorman,
bat as Bob njade his way across pud
dles to the curb he noticed that the
cc.r had not continued on Its way ; in
deed, feven the door had not yet been
closed. He had started down the
street to his home when a mighty
"Bey!" made him turn.
^'How far are you goln* to ^o with
that umbrella, young man?" shouted
the motorman. "This time it hap
pened to be mliie." said that worthy
as he slammed the door Amt and shot
the car forward.
ADAM AND EVE GO SHOPPING

Imagination in Describing Re
Let us imagine our scapegoat an

stroll through Drang's ten-story de
partment store. Can we not hear the
tense ejaculations of our first mother
before the mountains of unknown
things, wools, satins, silks, challies,
organdies and muslins, piled celling
high before her? Even Adam, who
hus a reputation as a namer of things,
might well drop all his Miltonic airs
of superiority, and say for once In
some dainty form of Edenic language,
' "Eve, dear, I certainly am out of
soundings. I can find names easily
enough for birds, beasts and fishes,
but all this" (with a gesture of meek
hopelessness) "is out of my zone. Yet
I am sure It ls all Intended for your
sex; for I'm thinking no man would
gear himself up in any of this
duffle"-If one may help him to a
Then Eve, If true to her old Edenic
form, would retort:
"But Adam, dear, you can't deny
that It ls all most tempting, and I am
going to pick out right away some of
that soft, cloudy stufl*, the color of a
sunrise; Tm sure lt would be much
prettier, than fig leaves for a dress."

Sporting editors, Judging by their writ
ings, must be the most serious of men,
and their earnestness Is often amus
ing. The defeat of a college football
team recently called forth a lugubrious
utterance from a correspondent who
evidently felt that the educational In
stitution had received a blow from
which Its scholastic reputation of a
century and a half would hardly be
a^le to save lt. The writer asserted
that the football trainers of this Insti
tution were paid Insufficiently, and,
after taking the authorities to task,
reached his climax In these significant
words : "A young, Inexperienced coach
has been asked to assume the respon
sibility of the team, who could be
hired at a salary no greater than the
average professor In the college re
ceives." In the present state of
American school athletic affairs this
might be considered an extremely high
compliment-Christian Science Mon
When the World Is/Filled.
A member of the Royal Geographic
society in England estimates that the
fertile lands of the globe amount to
28.000,000 square miles, the steppes to
14.000,000, and the deserts to 1,000,000.
Fixing 207 persons to the square mlle
for fertile lands, ten for steppes and
one for deserts as the greatest popu
lation that the earth could properly
nourish, he arrives at the conclusion
that when the number of Inhabitants
reaches about 6,000,000,000 our planet
will be peopled to Its full capacity. -
If the rate of Increase shown by
recent census statistics should be uni
formly maintained, it is shown that
the globe would be fully peopled
about the year 2072. But such calcu
lations do not allow for unknown
sources of error, and therefore cannot
be taken too literally.

Another day we tried to put dull care
And reveled building castles of the

And from the heights looked down on

If only I had told you all I meant to say!
