Mr. and Mrs. H. Kv Sanders have

Mr. Sande1 . ^Jiperintendent of
the Antioch i_-Jay school and yes
terday he gave a barbecue at his
stately home for the benefit of the
Sunday school, defraying all of the
expense himself. Besides the mem
bers of the Sunday school, he invited
some of his personal friends, includ
ing a number from Edgefield. Not
withstanding the lowering clouds and
the early downpour of rain, more
than 100 people gathered to enjoy
the gracious hospitality of Mr. and
Mrs. Sanders. Following his life-long
policy, that of doing in the best pos
sible manner whatever he undertakes,
Mr. Sanders requested Mr. A. A. Ed
munds to superintend the cooking of
the "cue," which he did in a one
Sometime before noon the people
began to assemble and the ladies were
^^.-^fifieived in this ideal old Southern
mansion^Mrs. Sanders and the men
- were welcomed by Mr. Sanders and
seated under the ti ees out on the
lawn. Mr. ?anders had provided a
stand for. th? candidates to regale
; themselves tpon and arranged seats
for the aufiience. He "broke the ice"
/.? however, for the speakers in a very
apropriate welcome address, in which
.he ur?ed all present to forget dis
'JXfi*w&!&i&$jot 1920 and l&2A~:in. L
to grow long-faced, and enjoy them
selves for a day. He said he wanted
to see people . laugh and be happy
again. That this desire was what
prompted him to provide this day of
pleasure. He then took in his arms
his beautiful little one-year-old
daughter, which occasion celebrated
her first birthday, and intorduced
her as the sweetest little baby in all
the world, and everybody present
heartily agreed with him. Mr. San
ders called "Uncle" Norman Young
blood, the faithful old colored man
who was in his employment in Edge
field for about 15 years, and had him
sing a religious song in his unique
way, which was greatly enjoyed. As
"Uncle" Norman mounted the plat
form, he said, as he turned to Mr.
Sanders: "White folks, dis is my
young Boss Man. I love him and al
ways will." This brought forth hearty
cheers from the audience.
Mr. Sanders next presented Rev.
P. B. Lanham who spoke briefly and
appropriately. He was followed by
Hon. James O. Sheppard and in the
- midst of his speech rain fell so heav
' ily that all had to rush to the house
for shelter. After order was restored,
Mr. Sheppard completed his speech
standing upon the front porch. He
was followed by Mr. C. T. Burnett,
Mr. P. L. Cogburn, Mr. L. T. May,
Mr. W. W. Fuller and Mr. S. Mc G.
Simkins. Not a word of politics was
uttered by anybody, be it said to their
Dinner was now announced. On
account of the wet ground the la
. dies and children were served in the
house and the men gathered about
the long table under the large oaks.
Barbecued meat and hash a la Ed
munds was served in endless quanti
ties. After the individual trays were
filled, great dish pans piled high with
meat and hash, together with pyra
mids of bread, were placed at inter
vals along the table. Great pains
were taken to place .one of the larg
est pans near George Swearingen
and another nearly or quite as large
close by Paul Cogburn. However,
"Uncle" Charlie Key and Chesly
Wells were their close seconds. Huge
vessels of ice water were placed near
by and were frequently visited.
Several hours after dinner were
spent in delightful social intercourse,
just what people greatly need now.
A get together meeting is needed in
every community, enabling people
to have pleasant diversion and, as
MT. Sanders said, causing people to
have confidence in each other restor
ed. It was, viewed from every stand
point, an ideal occasion, given by
ideal hosts at an ideal place. By the
way, it is worth traveling many miles
to see this stately old Southern home,
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sanders,
which was erected 125 years ago but
is as well preserved today as if it
were only erected a decade ago. Of
course, Mr. Sanders made many im
provements upon it after purchasing
it several years ago, including re
painting inside and out. It is said that
a former owner of this rare old home
was offered $500 for one of the hand
carved mantels which is a real work
Edgefield people realized and ap
preciated the worth of Mr. and Mrs.
Sanders when they lived here, giving
them up with reluctance, and we are
pleased to know that the good peo
ple of Antioch also appreciate their
unselfishness and real worth to the
community. [Would that our town
and county had more of their kind.

Large Still Destroyed.
Friday Sheriff W. R. Sweraingen,
accompanied by Mr. Wallace W.
Wise and Mr. Warren Paul, destroyed
a large still about 500 yards from the
Plank road just below the farm of
Mr. E. M. Padgett. It was a large
s'team outfit that had been in opera
tion a short time before. Several
hundred gallons of mash were de
stroyed. There was no one at the
still at the time the raid was made.
After destroying the still the raiding
party learned that two negroes from
that neighborhood had carried some
whiskey to Johnston in an automobile
Friday morning, so they left for
Johnston. About midway between
Trenton and Johnston they met the
two negroes, Robert Gaines and Bill
Terry, returning and upon searching
their car found a quart and a half of
liquor in fruit jars. They then went
to Johnston and searced the place of
William Bryant, another negro, find
ing something over a gallon of whis
key which was sold to him by the two
negroes in custody. They were all
three brought to jail but William
Bryant was released on bond. The
other two, Robert Gaines and Bill
Terry, are now in jail awaiting trial.

Marriage of Miss Mattie Lyon
and Mr. William Wingfield.
A beautiful home wedding was
celebrated at noon Wednesday, June
28th at the residence of Mr. and
Mrs. Matthew Daniel Lyon, when
their daughter, Miss Mattie Lyon be
came the wife of Mr. William Wing
field of Augusta. The occasion was a
delightful one and a congenial com
pany consisting of the family only
and out of town guests filled the
spacious home. The sons and daught
ers and grandchildren of Mr. and Mrs
Lyon were all present except one
son who was unavoidably detained.
As the guests entered the door,
their eyes met a most charming pic
ture, and realized the touch of an ar
tist in the lovely decorations. The
hall and parlor were made into a
bower of daisies and asparagus, and
a table against the hall screen over,
which hung a basket of tulle and
daisies, held the wedding presents,
the gifts of friends and family. A
bank of asparagus fern and daisies
covered the space between screen and
table and with the overhanging bell,
and the cut glass and silver, made a
One of the most inconspicuous
looking gifts, but the most valuable,?
was a check for five hundr _ dollars LJ
from the groom's brother, Mr. Wing^f J
field of Augusta.
The same design was carried out in
the parlor, where a large and grace
ful wedding bell of tulle and daisies
hung as a centerpiece, and high from
the windows, and mantel were dis
played groups of daisies on aspara
gus. Dainty baskets were seen occa
sionally filled with daisies and mak
ing one dream of shady dells and
running brooks and green lanes and,
happy lovers. The arrangement of
the decoration was planned by Miss
As the strains of Lohengrin's Bri
dal Chorus was heard on the piano-lil
where Miss Ruth Lyon presided, the
bride and groom unattended, came
down the winding stairway, the bride
bearing a magnificent bouquet of
brides' loses and lillies of the valley.
At the altar they were met by Rev.
Mr. McFerren, pastor of the Green
street Presbyterian church of Au
gusta, who performed the wedding
ceremony. The bride was dressed in
a most stylish travelling suit of blue
and a becoming hat to match.
As soon as the marriage ceremony;
was over, the friends and relatives all
gathered around and greeted the)
bride who has been known and loved
troduced fr ' om wnom they all
believed had trophy in
this splendid young lady.
As the minister began the cere
mony which united the two lives, Miss
Lois Mims on the violin with piano
accompaniment by Miss Ruth Lyon,
played "Traumerei," that soft and,
enchanting selection which grows
more beautiful each time it is heard,
and especially under the artist touch
of Miss Minis. After the ceremony,
the whole orchestra, Mr. George F.
Mims,? Miss Lois Mims, Claude Lyon,
Mrs. Walter Cantelou and Mrs. Leoni
Warren and Miss Ruth Lyon contin-j|
ued to play some of the most beauti
ful and appropriate selections, "Al
Perfect Day," "Tenderly," "Love's]
Old Sweet Song," and other charm
After music, block cream and
pound cake were served, and the
bride and groom left in a car foi
Trenton where they took the north-^
bound train for the North Carolina
mountains. They will return to Au
gusta for a few months and will late? |
build a home in North Augusta.

Power of Sight in Animals.
The two familiar expressions, "An
?agle's eye" and "Blind as a bat," '
ust about sum up the average per
on's knowledge of the sense of sight ?<
n animals. The popular impression 1
s that all large, dangerous animals 1
?f the jungle have powerful eyes-, <
mt, in fact, many are decidedly weak .'
The elephant has poor eyes, and re- 1
ies on his other senses, mostly on
smell, to compensate for this. Also .
;he rhinoceros sees but a short dis- ;
ance, *>nd depends on his sense of
smell, e^* * in charging an enemy.
The buffalo has good eyes, but those
af the bear are so poor that when a
little confused he will run directly
aver the hunter he is trying to avoid.
Bears'-eyes are dramatically describ
ed as "red. rimmed and savage," but
bears, ordinarily, are not quarrel
some, and prefer to use their eyes in
Power of the eagle's eyes is pro
verbial, but the hawk's are nearly as
remarkable. All birds that are speedy
travelers have fine sight-a provision
nf^nfyirp to prevent their collision
as thrushes, warblers, vireos, ' etc.,
see well, as is proved by their going
to any place they choose. The fact
that they often fly against lighthous
es and are killed is no proof that they
do not see, but indicates that the
light confuses them, and as they near
it, blinds them to the house itself.
You and I can see an automobile sev
eral yards away, even on a dark
night, but if the headlights are on and
extremely bright, we may see only
the light as the machine bears down \
on us. Moths fly into a candle flame
because of confusion; their sight is
strong enough to avoid the collision,
but when the flame blinds them to
everything else, they become panic
stricken and dash straight for it.
Even game birds act as though blind;
a covey of partridges, if flushed near
the sea, will sometimes fly out and
light on the waves. They can swim
but little and are generally drowned
by this act which ordinarily thay
would assiduously avoid. The gun's
report excites them beyond self
I think we would be safe in saying
that on an average, birds see one hun
dred times better than man. By watch
ing each other's actions birds will go
a hundred miles to a carcass; and'un
der favorable atmospheric conditions
a bird can see a worm on freshly
ploughed ground at a distance of j
three hundred feet.
The bee, though the strength of
its sight is not remarkable, has a won
derful ocular equipmnet-five eyes,
a cluster of tree on top of its head,
and one on each side. Zoologiste say
that the compound eye on top is so
made as to be specially adapted for
detecting moving objects; and this
seems reasonable, as the bee has
many enemies that fly above it.

The American fag still flies over
Dooze, thanks to A. D. Lasker.
Mr. Lasker is an advertising agent
?vho took the solemn oath to support
the Constitution and laws of the
United States and administer the of
fice of Chairman of the Shipping
Now he is engaged in the busniess
of advertising in every port to which,
he can send an American passenger
ship, that the United States permits
its officials openly to flaunt its laws.
Liquor, all kinds of liquor, has
been sold for months on the Shipping
Board liners. Mr. Lasker by devious
methods sought to prevent the sub
ject from being discussed publicy.
He failed. His defense, when the
charge of impeachable violation of
his oath of office was made, was the
weakest imaginable. He fell back on
the plea that the liners could not sus
tain foreign competition unless li
quor was sold, and in addition the
Supreme Court had not finally ruled
that the Eighteenth Amendment to
the 'Constitution was applicable to
ships on the high seas. ^
Iormul?te sucTi excuses. The. com
mercial side of prohibition with the
question of its financial necessity to
government and individual was argu
ed for years while this country was
for long years while this country was
considering prohibition as a policy.
The overwhelming sentiment which
compelled the enactment of the pro
hibition amendment to the Constitu
tion and the laws for its enforcement
have settled that argument, and made
it the fundamental law of this land
that neither government nor individ
ual shall profit from an outlaw in
As for the lack of a high court de
cision, that excuse is nonsense, and
deserves a worse name. United States
district courts have ruled the law ap
plies to United States ships. The De
partment of justice under a former
chief ruled likewise, and Mr. Lasker
has sought no opinion from the pres
ent Attorney General to the contra
ry. He doubtless fears that Mr.
Daughterty could only repeat the
former opinion. It has been the ac
knowledged law of the nations since
earliest times that a ship on the high
seas is territory of the nation in
which it is owned.
The United States has held itself
out as a nation intent on abolishing
the evils which flow with liqor. There
are a very, very few, public officials
who still express openly their opin
ion that the enacment of prohibition
was a mistake and that the country
should return to license. These few
have the right to their opinion and
I the right to express it.
But Mr. Lasker's offense is differ
ent: He is the only official in public
life who has dared openly to an
nounce that he will not enforce the
Constition and the law of the land.
