A PLEASANT OCCASION.
The Men's Banquet at Central Meth
odist Church-Several Visitors
Made Inspiring Addresses.
The social side of church life has
been very much magnified in Central
Methodist church since they have had
as their pastor Dr. J. W. wolling.
Genial and happy in his own disposi
tion and temperament, it is ever his
study to devise means and plans to
give pleasure to others and especially
to those of his own congregation.
On Wednesday night the parlors of
Central church were indeed changed
into a scene of beauty under the skill
ful and artistic hands of about twenty
ladies of the congregation, who were
most loyally assisted by a committee
composed of several of the geitlemen
of the congregation.
Places were provided for about one
hundred guests, and it is safe to say
that this number was very nearly
reached. Before the beginning of the
banquet the main auditorium of the
church was opened and a short and
impressive devotional service was
conducted. Immediately following
this, the men came in a body into the
adjoining room and after being seated
at the three long tables they were
served to a delicious oyster supper
followed by cake and coffee.
Mr. Z. F. Wright was the grac
ious toastmaster for the occasion
and sat at the head of the middle ta
ble. On his right sat the Hon. C. C.
Featherstone, of Laurens, and l4ev.
Melvin B. Kelly, of Greenwood, and
on his left Judge J. Fuller Lyon, of
Columbia, and Dr. J. W. Wolling. The
visiting gentlemen were the guests of
honor, and after a most happy and
laughter provoking speech by Mr.
Wright, into which he also threw
some splendid sentiments as to the
wise government of church relations,
the Rev. Mr. Kelly was introduced.
Mr. Kelly is known and loved by
the Methodist of Newberry as well as
by a large circle of friends outside of
this particular church. He was lis
tened to with the closest attention, be
ing a man of wonderful magnetism
and entertaining style, and his sincere
greeting to his friends was one of the
greatest pleasures of the evening.
Following Mr. Kelly, Judge Lyon
was introduced and he made quite a
houhtful and eloquent address on
the subject assigned him, which was
the modern church and Sunday
Mr. Wrig'.:t thecn presented the lion.
C. C. Featherstone, and it was a pleas
ure to many to have an opportunity
to hear this talented and gifted speak
er. He said that as the hour was al
ready late and the speakers who had
preceded 'him had gotten "th-e first
blow,'' that he would only make a few
brief remarks. However, he said some
very good and sensible things, and
was loudly applauded. His very in
formal talk was along the subject of
social life in the church.
The occasion would not have been
complete without hearing from Dr.
Wolling, and as he is ever equal to
the task assigned him, he measured*
up fully to this festive occasion. He
complimented the guests, the toast
master, the men of his congregation,
the ladies who had prepared the re
past, and in fact the doctor was all
smiles and was happy with the whole
At the eldse of his remarks a round
of applause was given to those who
had had the banquet in charge, and
with this.elosed the second and so far
the most enjoyable banquet yet given
by the members of Central Methodist
Mr. John Wicker was chairman of
t.he committee of gentlemen to make
the necessary arrangements, and Mrs.
R. D. Wright was chairman of the
committee of ladies who assisted the~
pastor in' getting up the very enjoya
County School Association.
On Saturday, February 20,' the
County School Association met in the
ew court house. About thirty-five
teachers and .trustees were present.
Dr'. 0. B. Mayer made a very in
teresting lecture on school sanitation.
This lecture was not only interesting
but helpful. We learned that t.he
two ways by which disease germs are
most frequently scattered are by
means of dust and the drinking cup.
The floors of most of our school
rooms, are very dusty. In this way
disease germs are carried from one
child to another. The trustees of the
school should see that their school
houses are kept clean, and they should
have the floors of the school room
oiled, in order to keep down this dust.
A school house should he so situated
that t,he morning and afternoon sun
could find way into it. fo there are
some disease germs which you may1'.
freeze, but still they have life in them
mntil the sun shines upon them.
Dr. E. B. Setzler continued his dis
ussion of English Grammar.
SPECIAL SALE OF PIANuoS.
Announcement by the Cable Piauo
Company-A Carload of Pianos
Arrived at Newberry.
Lovers of music have been ol the
quia vive anticipating the great
sale which is to be con
dm-ted by the Cable Piano
Company. When the word went torLh
that a carload of the finest instri
ments made in the great factories of
the Cable Company, Chicago and Srt.
Charles. Illinois, had arrived at the
Southern railroad freight house, it
was the signal for much discussion
among prospective piano purcaaszrs.
It i; not surprising that so m.ch
interest has been shown as the fame
of the Cable Company's makes of
pianos is firmly established nt > ony
throughout the entire State of South
Carolina, but from coast to coasL. So
great indeed has been the demand for
their pianos that the Cable Company
had to build a great addition to their
St. Charles factory which wi ei:able
them to add to t.heir output mvore than
thirty-five hundred pianos a year.
So many inquires have come to he
Cable Company at Charle.,n from
prospective buyers in Newberrv and
vicinity, that Mr. Wallace, presideat
of the company, has decided to make
it easy for everyone in thi.. part of
the country to select a piano to the
best satisfaction. The carload which
has arrived contains the famous
Conover, Cable, Kingsbury and Wel
lington Pianos, and also several of
those marvels of invention made ex
elusively by the Cable Company and
known as the Inner Player pianos.
These instruments are all shown in
the latest and most approved designs
and are made up in %woods of the
richest grain and most attractive fin
ish. If there is a home in Newberry
today that is without a piano, there
will be no reason or excuse why it
s.hould remain destitute of music for
the price inducements and the easy
terms which are to be features of this
sale will make it possible for people
of even moderate means to own a
Several of our musical people have
expressed deep gratification at this
decision of the Cable Piano Com
pany to bring to our very doors such
a splendid collection of pianos, and it
is to be hoped that every one who is
not now provided with a good instru
ment will take advantage of the op
portunity while it lasts. It will not
only be a chance for these who have
no pianos but also for others who
have organs or ot.her instruments that
they would like to trade. in as part
payrent for new pianos.
Mr. 'Wallace announces that this
sale will be held at 1204 Main street
in building formerly occupied by
Watts' Racket Store and will con
tinue one week.
