Now that the last election hat

rom coroner to governor for at least
wo years, let's cool oif and resume
he even tenor of our way. Most of
is are prone to become too excited
n our eagerness to elect certain in
lividuals to office. Whether our
friends or favorites have been chosen
?r not, let's forget politics and turn
;o things that are more worth while.
" Whether satisfied or disappointed
vith the result, let's get back to nor

Loyal Officers Needed.
Under all circumstances law and
?rder can best be. promoted by having
efficient and loyal officers to execute
;he law, but especially during the af
;er-the-war period of demoralization
;hrough which we are passing do we
leed one-hundred-per-cent law en
forcement officers. Greenwood, along
vith some of the other counties, has
lad some flagrant violations of the
aw during the past few years and
iince it has come to light that a ru
ral policeman of that county has
)een indicted for spiriting away an
mportant witness in order to thwart
iustice one is not surprised that such
i condition prevails in Greenwood
Sworn officers of the law who wink
it crime are a hindrance rather than
i help in enforcing the law. In se
ecting men to become executive or
aw enforcement officers, the people
?hould give their support to those
vho are known to be foursquare and
oyal to the last degree. Law en
forcement is at a low ebb in any
sounty where men who are sworn to
?phold and enf oi-ce the ' law tacitly
mcourage its violation. Away with i

>eath of Mrs. P. M. Quarles.
The severing of earthly ties and
ie breaking of the home circle is
Iways sad, but when a mother, leav
lg not alone a bereaved husband
at small children, is taken in the
lidst of a useful life it is unspeak
bly sad. Monday Mrs. Quarles, the
ife of Mr. P. M. Quarles, died at
2T home in the Red Hill community.
he had been in failing health for
?me months, having spent several
eeks in the hospital in Augusta for
?ecial treatment. Nothing could be
?und that would bring relief.
Mrs. Quarles was a devout Chris
in woman, a member of Red Hill
lurch. She was a devoted wife, a
nder and indulging mother, and
3 greatest sympathy is felt for
cse who are left in the broken
?me circle to mourn her passing
The funeral was conducted at Red
ill church yesterday at noon by
rv. P. B. Lanham.
Delightful Social Gathering at
Friday evening "Englewood," the
rarely ancestral home of Mr. and
Mrs. F. F. Rainsford, was the scene
jf a brilliant social function, the
rirst of the autumn season. They
threw wide their doors to about 100
of their friends from Trenton, John
ston and Edgefield, including also
some out of town guests, and the
spirit of extreme cordiality, good
cheer and gracious hospitality per
meated the atmosphere. The color
scheme of the attractive decorations
was pink and white which was car
ried out to the minutest detail, even
in the refreshments that were served.
As the guests arrived they were re
freshed with delicious punch, a large
bowl being placed at each end of
the front piazza, where a bevy of
beautiful girls dispensed lavishly the
fruit nectar. Mrs. Sadie Johnson
Hill, the mother of the hostess, who
though now is regarded as one of
the older generation, yet surprising
ly youthful and sprightly in spirit,
assisted the host and hostess in greet
ing the guests at the front door, ex
tending a warm welcome with old
time Edgefield cordiality and gra
Progressive conversation was the
chief form of diversion for the young
people, the pink and white date cards
being pased by the two little idols
of the home, Sadie and Adeline
Rainsford. During the conversation
the latest victrola music, both instru
mental and vocal, gave added zest
to the occasion.
At the conclusion of the progres
sive conversation pink and white
block cream and individual cakes
were served, pink and white mints
being served from silver compotiers.
The occasion was faultlessly plan
ned by the host and hostess and noth
ing was left undone that would con
tribute to the pleasure of their
guests. The delightful party at "En
glewood" will be a source of pleas
ant memories to the guests who were
honored with invitations.
i On next Saturday afternoon there
will be an ice cream festival at Mc
Kendres church. Everybody is invit
ed to come.
Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Walker and
son, Mi. and Mrs. Zonnie Dorn and
