Laurens county will poll about 3,801

By tho way, Governor Heyward, a
man of judgment, appointed Col. 'frib
ble a year or two ago to completo the
Confederate rolls and he did tho work
well. Thia old veteran entered tho
Confederate army from Lauretta and
fought the lour yenrs-and it is tolling
no talon out of school to bay that he
continued to light for a number ot'
years after Appomattox-because the
necessity for lighting did not cease in
Laurens until Wade Hampton had
been firmly praeed in the governors
First, because Col. Tribble mode a
highly satisfactory clerk of court for
Anderson County, an excellent post
master for Anderson city when Demo
cratic postmasters were in fashion, be

second, because there are few left in
South Carolina who so faithfully, so
bravely and honorably and at much
cost saved South Carolina, Laurens
County is for bim-and let it be to a

An Enjoyable Occasion.
Mr. Editor: Quite an enjoyable oc
casion waa the oyster supper given by
Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Bowie at their
beautiful country home, twelve miles
south of Anderson,on Saturday evening
17th inst., in honor of their charming
siece, Ming Rosa Lee Drake, of Don
alds, S. C., who was beautifully dress
ed foi the occasion in white organdie
trimmed with ribbon and lace.
After mingling together in social
chat for awhile we were invited into
the spacious dining room, where we
were received by our hostess, Mrs.
Bowie, SBsisted by Mrs. Parker Rob
inson, of Honea Path, S. C.
The long table was beautifully
decorated with a mound of violets and
tall vases from which drooped graceful j
limbs .of spiraea.
After being bountifully served to
oysters, delici?os cakes and charlotte
russe we re-aaaembled in the parlor,
where we were delightfully entertain
ed with music furnished by Messrs.
Ross and Ma^a Price and Sandford
Brown, assisted by Mrs. Robinson.
The hour of departure soon arrived
snd the merry crowd though loathe to
leave soon bade each other good-bye
and - scattered to their respective
homes. . -. > ;
The occasion afforded much pleasure
to all who attended, and we r opp that
lo the near future'Mr. and Mrs. Bowie
will return the favor again.
