The Thanksgiving season has been
celebrated in. true spirit in Newberry.
Many were the dinings given among
its citizens, and there was scarcely
a home where the inmates did not
either entertain or were invited out
to dine with friends. So each year
it is found that the custom of cele
brating this national holiday is grow
ing in significance and importance.
On Tuesday the Bachelor Maids a
ushered in the Thanksgiving festivi- 1
ties at their regular meeting which
was held at the elegant home of Mrs.
P. E. Scott on college street. The
post cards used on this occasion were e
decorated with a picture of the
"thanksgiving bird." Each ' guest
was given a card with the request
that she write in verse the things for
which she was the most thankful
since last thanksgiving season. At
the close of the meeting a dainty
sweet course was served to the fol
lowing young ladies: - Misses Jeanne
Pelham, Blanche Davidson, Cora
Dominick, Fannie May Carwile, Ber- t
nice Martin, Gertrude Carwile, Eliza- a
beth Dominick, Lilla Martin, Carrie t
Jones, Caiolyn Cromer, and Eula e
Walker, of Elberton, Ga. a
Jn Thanksgiving evening Mrs. S. 8
B. Aull at her beautiful and spacious
residence gave a "Harvest Home"
entertainment. Mrs. Aull is an ideal C
and charming hostess, possessed with 3
the sweet graces of making everyone a
feel comfortable and at home. This b
entertainment was given under the e
auspicies of the Woman's club, and i
the proceeds are to be used for the b
benefit of the library. The decora- t
tions were all in'the beautiful autumn t
colors, being mostly natural and thus e
their beauty was greatly eghanced. In
the reception hall over the center of v
the mantel was a sheaf of wheat t
around which were clustered corn t
shucks and other wheat. In the par- y
lor the decorations were all in autumn a
leaves, and nothing is prettier than s
these many colored leaves, reflecting
as they do the most exquisite colors
in nature. In the dining room on the ~
table was a large pumpkin filled with r
all kinds of autumn fruits, and among 1
the red autumn leaves were* placed ~
red candles which shed their soft, '.
bright, i-adiance over the room giving s
all a most pleasing effect. Delicious
-refreshme. .ts were served by a num- a
her of little girls, and coffee and
choeolate were served by Mesdames
W. H. and I. H. Hunt. A most charm- I
ing musical-program had been arrang- e
ed which was greatly enjoyed. Mrs. E
Roy Z. Thomas sang two beautiful
selections, Mrs. Alice Robertson also
sang two lovely songs. Mesdames
James Kibler and Sam Jones render
ed a beautiful duet, Mrs. W. K. Sligh
recited "h'First Thanksgiving,'
and Miss Carrie Pool delighted all
with an exquisite violin solo. 1
Dr. P. G. Ellesor entertained a
number of his friends at a stag din- a
ner at six o'clock on Thanksgiving E
The children also were entertained C
on Thanksgiving. Little Miss Trox- ~
elle Wright, daughter of Mr. and J
Mrs. R. D. Wright. celebrated her
fourYn birthday with a delightful I
party to which a large number of the t
children in town were invited. Mrs. 1
Wright knows how to entertain chil.- a
dren as graciously as she does her t
host of grown friends, and all the. C
little "tots"' were happy.
One of the most enjoyable occas
ions was the celebration of the sev
enty-third birthda.y of Mrs. Jessie
Dickert which was held on Thursday
at the home of her second son Mr. J.i
L. Dickert. There were present six
Ssons and one daughter, forty-six chil-'
dren, and nine grandchildren. In
eluding the immediate family connee
tion there were seventy persons pres
ent and they all sat down to dinner at
one time. It was a day to be long re
