Friday afternoon from five to
seven Misses Ouida and Lillian Pat
tison gave a rook party in honor of
little Miss Elizabeth Craig of Ander
son who is here visiting her grand
mother, Mrs. Lizzie Cogburn. The
decorations were pink and white

test detail, even in the refreshments.
The chief form of diversion for the
sixteen little guests was a spirited
game of rook, four tables being ar
ranged on the porch. A beautiful
prize was presented to the guest of
honor. At the conclusion of the game
of rook refreshments consisting of
pink and white block ice cream, pink

Last Campaign Meeting.
The last of the series of six coun
ty campaign meetings was held in
the academy grove at Edgefield yes
terday. The attendance was as large
as was expected and the speeches in
the main were very creditable. The
five candidates for legislative honors
spoke somewhat at length setting
forth their views upon the public
questions, varying but little from
former speeches made in the cam
paign. But all of them have greatly
improved in the effectiveness with
which they present their claims to
the people. Following the legislative
candidates, the candidates for mag
istrate for the first district spoke.
Mr. Turner was presented first, he
being followed by Judge Tompkins.
Mr. J. S. Smith was the last number
of the speaking program. Next came
the barbecue dinner which was ser
ved by Mr. A. A. Edmunds ard Mr.
W. E. Ouzts. It was well prepared
and was greatly enjoyed by those
who feasted over at the academy.

Chautauqua at Johnston.
Commencing Friday night, August
25, a summer Chautauqua will he
held at Johnston for five nights, ex
cluding Sunday hight. The exercises
will be held under a big tent and a
splendid miscellaneous program has
been arranged for each night. Friday
night the program will consist of a
grand opening concert and a lecture
on "Immortality of Influence," will
be delivered by Mr. George L. Bar
ker, and each night thereafter an at
tractive program will be given. In
addition to the lectures and musical
features, several popular comedies
will be given by talented actors and
actresses. The fourth night the play
"It Pays to Advertise" will be given.
All proceeds from the chautauqua
above actual expenses will go to the
Johnston school. The Johnston Chau
tauqua deserves to succeed.
Commencing Friday night of this
week and lasting for five nights,
Sunday night excepted, a chatauqua
will be held at Johnston and the net
proceeds will go to the Johnston
school. We trust that it will be a
great success financially and from
every other standpoint.
The people of Johnston are to be
commended for putting on the sum
mer Chautauqua, which will begin
Friday night of this week. The in
fluence of such entertainment is al
ways wholesome and helpful tb a
community. Even if they only break
even financially, it will have paid the
people of Johnston to hold the Cha
Be sure to attend one night of the
Chautauqua at Johnston if no more.
You will find the lectures inspiring
and the other features of the pro
gram altogether pleasing.

The London Failure.
The allied conference at London,
called n afinal effort to settle the
question of German reparation, end
ed in a flat failure, as nearly every
body expected it would. And if any
more conferences are called, they
will end doubtless in failure just as
complete-unless the conferees are
willing, on both sides, to face facts.
Those facts are plain enough to all
the world outside of France. Surely
they must be plain, too, to French
statesmen, when those statesmen al

obligation is there, and Germany
considered as a business institution,
with great assets and productive
power, might be supposed able to

Germany is cleaned out of cash.
She is no longer able, to obtain any
cash worth speaking of by selling
paper marks for gold. The allies will
not take paper. She could pay them
in goods, but they do not want
goods. That is all there is to it.
