largest in the cotton belt in propor

Both Furnish Bond
As Sheriff W. R. Swearingen failed
to give bond as he said he would do
when apprised that a bond charging
him with assault and battery had
been issued, Judge J. B. Tompkins,
acting upon the advice of an attorney
sent the warrant to C?roner T. E.
Byrd. Although in feeble health, Mr.
Byrd came to Edgefield Saturday
morning to serve the warrant and
found that Mr. Swearingen had gone
to the campaign meeting at Colliers,
so he waited until his return in the
afternoon and served' the warrant.
Mr. Swearingen at once gave bond in
the sum of $500, his bondsmen be
ing Mr. J. R. Timmerman and Mr. W.
Mr. Swearingen then had a war
rant issued before Judge Tompkins
for Mr. A. A. Edmund, charging him
with assault and battery with intent
to kill. The warrant was served Sat
urday afternoon and Mr. Edmunds
immediately gave bond and demand
ed a preliminary hearing. His bond
was signed by Mr. L. S. Kernaghan.

Entertained Friday Night.
< Friday night the members of the
Old Maids' Club of Edgefield (we
would not dare iattempt to say who
the members are) gave an elaborate
tea at the home of Miss Virginia Ad
dison (not that she is a member but
merely consented for this important
function be held at her home.) T^e
honor guests were two Edgefield
young ladies (not members of Old
Maids' Club) who have been residing
for some time in Greenville, Misses
Virginia Simkins and Ruth Timmer
man, and are spending their vacation
in Edgefield. It has been said that all
who were honored with invitations
Friday night were the gayest of the
gay-scarcely, if at all, out of their
teens. At any rate, had not the so
cial feature made the guests' cup of
joy overflow, the elaborate feast,
served in courses, would have been
sufficient to make the occasion linger
long in one's memory. Probably some
of those present were just a-wee bit
older than they once were, possibly
old enough to have enrolled for the
primary, and yet the merry peals of
laughter that burst forth from door
and window of this superb home
made the passerby imagine that the
younger set of Edgefield were hav
ing a sort of debut party. The two
honor guests were presented by the
members of the Old.Maids' Club, who
ever they are, with two beautiful,
