Success In Every Particular-Seve
ral Visitors Present.
The banquet on Thanksgiving
evening, given by Oconee Conclave,
No. 827, Improved prder Hepta
sophs, was a great success.
About forty members of the con
clave, and visitors, were present on
this Joyous occasion. \m^ng the vis
itors present were Dr. J. H. Craw
ford, Martin, Ga.; Mr. Townsend,
Cleveland, Ohio; J. B. Sloan, Rock
HUI; L. L. Litt man, Anderson; Mr.
Dunlap and R. C. Mattlson, Honea
After the supper, which was boun
tiful and very elegantly prepared,
speech-making was indulged in until
. about 12 o'clock.
J. B. Sloan, D. D. S. A., of Rock
Hill, made a splendid address on
the growth and general prosperity of
the Improved Order Heptasbphs. He
stated, among other things, that the
Supreme Conclave now has in its
treasury over $800,000 applicable to
the payment of death benefits, and
that the organization only began the
setting aside of a reserve fund in
1901, the year Oconee Conclave was
instituted. He showed that frater
nal insurance was the poor man's in
surance, and the only safe way tor
the working man to save his money,
and lay up something for his family
when he shall be called from this
Thle was Mr. Sloan's fifth vltdt to
the conclave on the occasion of its
annual banquet*, and be said he be
lieved they were better each suc
ceeding year. He concluded by wish

The next speaker was Louis L.
Llttman, of Anderson, who ls the or
ganizing officer in charge of the work
In this territory. At the outset he
paid a glowing tribute to the mem
/ory of the late James Thompson,
who was wPh us a year ago, but
who has since answered the call of
the Supreme Archon of the Universe.
Mr. Llttman also spoke, of the un
precedented growth of the o-der In
this territory. Also that he expected
to be in Walhalla in January for the
purpose of recruiting tho conclave at
this place. Mr. Llttman is a good
speaker, and entertained the assem
blage for nearly an hour.
Dr. J. H Crawford, charter mem
ber of the conclave, but now Past
Archon ot Stephens Conclave, Mar
tin, Ga., was also one of the speakers
of the evening. He looked on the
humorous side, and royally enter
tained the guests for half an hour.
He gave the boys to understand that
ere another twelve month had rolled
around he would have taken unto
himself a Ufe partner, and that, too.
from the Palmetto State. In advance,
we wish to extend congratulations.
The doctor ls a genial, whole-soulel
fellow, and he numbers his friends In
Walhalla by the score.
Mr. Townsend, member of a con
clave In Cleveland, Ohio, also made a
few remarks. Mr. Townsend is vis
iting his friend, Mr. L.ttman, In An
derson. He is president of a large
coal and coke company In Cleveland,
and a man of considerable financial
ability. This ls his second visit to
South Carolina. He is a very pleas
ant gentlemnn, and lt was a source of
great pleasure for the members of
Oconee Conclave to meet ihm.
Other speakers on the occasion
were R. W. Grubbs, Prof. J. W. Rey
nolds, L. B. Shockley, Mr. Dunlap,
John A. Ansel and D. A. Smith.
It was deeply regretted that Su
preme Secretary Tattersall could not
be present, he having been called to
his ' ame In Baltimore on Sunday on
account of serious Illness In his fam
ily. It will be remembered that on
last Thanksgiving the Supreme Or
ganizer was to have been with us,
but could not get here, being injured
In a wreck on the Southern Railway,
in which Samuel Spencer, president
of that system, was killed. And now

A SQUARE CONTEST."
W.a9 Sallie 8tribting Delightfully En
tertains the G. G. dab.
One of the most elaborate affairs
of this season's gayetles was a de- I
lightful luncheon to which Miss Sal
lie S tr! bli UK invited the G. G. Club
on last ,Saturday morning-' Every
one was charmed with the anticipa
tion of being entertained at Miss
Strlbling'8 lovely suburban home,
"Liberty Lodge." The guests were
received at the door by Miss Strib
ling and ushered into the large front
parlor,, handsomely arranged with a
large square table in the center of
the room and smaller ones, each
holding a large bowl of golden chrys
anthemums, on exquisite squares of
Battenburg and drawn work, the
color scheme of white and gold be
ing tastefully carried out through
out the entertainment.
The hostess treated all "fair and
square"-"square," as each realized
when she was presented with a dain
ty square booklet, on the front page
of which was printed in squares
these words, "A Square Contest." On
each of the Ave pages was a very
novel and unique and somewhat
startling question, at least the con
testants thought so when they were
asked to "draw a man of 7 squares
and 4 straight lines," and "build a
house of 7 squares." There was no
concrete builder within reach, so
each wont to work to build one for
he. ..elf. This was an excellent op
portunity to display one's artistic
talent, so no one failed to do her
best, even if the result happened not
to be artistic. All were dell?iht-id
with this contest on account of' its
being original and amueing, as well
as Instructive. As soou as the names
were signed in as few sq ii ares aa pos
sible, the papers were taken up and
turned over to the square ;udgen.
After the papers had heeu col KM t
ed three little girls, Misses Lowery,
Elizabeth Strlbling and Tnbitha
st ri bli UK, dressed in becoming frockB
with square white plnaiorea, served
a "square meal." The tempting salad
course, consisting of squares of liver
pudding, fruit salad, square Saratoga
chips, and Uneeda biscuit, with salted
peanuts served from a square dish,

Badly Mixed Up.
Abraham Brown, of wi nt or ton, N.
Y.,had a very remarkable experience.
He lay?: "Doctors got badly mixed
up o vor me. Ono said heart disease;
two called lt kidney trouble; the
fourth blood poison, and the fifth
stomach and liver trouble; but none
of them helped me; sp my wife ad
vised trying Electric Bitters, whloh
are restoring me to perfect health.
One bottle did me nure good than

j Found Dead in a Cotton Patch.
The dead body of William Cleve
land, colored, was found in a cotton
patch, near his home, in the Ebenezer
section, on last Wednesday afternoon.
The discovery was made by a small
colored boy, who while out hunting
in the field, stepped on the feet of
the dead man. Coroner Holleman
and the Sheriff went to the scene, ac
companied by a physician, but after
examination it was not thought nec
essary to hold an inquest, as the doc^
tor's opinion was that he died from
natural causes. The man had been
dead about two days. He lived in a
house by himself, hence nothing was
known of his disappearance. Cleve
land was about 70 years old.
Muscular Pains Cured.
"During the summer of 1903 I was
troubled with muscular pains in the
instep of my foot, ' says 8. Pedlar,
or Toronto, Ont. "At times it was
so painful ll could hardly walk.
Chamberlain's Pain Balm was recom
mended to me, so I cried it and was
completely cured by one minali bot
tle. I have since recommended it to
several of my friends, all of whom
speak highly of it." For sale by J.
