interesting contest which added mucl
-to the merriment of the occasion
Then the guests were invited to thi

a bevy of attractive young girls.

d Wednesday morning an informa
i and delightful porch party was giver

- attractive home in Harrington street
S.n interesting feature of the morn

.twas a "millinery contest" conductedl

s was given magnolia leaves from which
a to fashion hats. A various assortment
I of pretty Southern flowers had been
y provided and the "price' of each

)purchases and went to work on their
i hats to see who could secure the most

When these "creations" were finished,
all proved so becoming to the fair

the "touch contest." A large number

to get to the "cue" at Silver Street
on the 4th are to be commiserated;

I ever am so fortunate as to own a

After dinner, though really too full
for utterance, Rev. Mann, a candi-'

ISpeeches were called for from the
legislative aspirants, which was re- h
sponded to by Higgins, of Newberry, to
in his usual retiring and somewhat b
bashful manner; also by Messrs.;
Wyche and Harman, of Prosperity. lu
These last two were called with some,T
trepidation, and largely as an experi- a
ment; and, resulted just about like: t
we allowed, for sh'ortly afterward the fr
oratorical afiatus, in its effort to t
spread over the siTrrounding pre- o
cincts, came very near blowing away b
the rising young city of Silver Street. in
Probate Judge Schumpert, being a a
man of good judgment took time by' g
the fetlock and got to a place of safe- r
ty, leaving "Bishop Leitzsey," his op
ponent, behind to report such casual-' tc
ties as he saw to be inevitable. The vi
Bishop gave some very fatherly ad-' in
vice to the voters in regard to what b
he conceived to be a judicious line of
proceedure for them, about the last o
of the month.

As to a Decision in Anderson.
Great Sachem 0. Klettner is warm
in his praises of the Anderson affair.
He says he never was more highly
honored or cordially received in his
travels over the State than he was on c
his visit 'to Anderson last week. But
what Great Sachem Kiettner wishes s
the reporter to enlarge upon is that B
be overheard the remark in Anderson ti
that Mr. Jno. K. Aull was not only a
Red Man in name, but also in deed and
action. It came about from a decision N
of the judges, of which committee to.
award prizes Mr. Aull was chairman.
It was on the awarding of the prize
for the best equipped tribe of Red
Men. After the decision had been'
rendered no complaint was heard. ar
Everybody seemed to be pleased. even
those who lost in the contest for the
wo:-hy itviw of :hs f1'er that it is
so difficult to render a decision which t1
will be agreeable to others than the tr
