One of the prettiest and most enjoy
able affairs of the season was the
beautiful birthday party tendered by
Miss Alice Aull on Saturday evening
to the members of the graduating class
of Newberry college. The home in
Boundary street was brilliantly
beautiful in its Valentine decorations,
the motif being the red heart, the dec
orations carrying out in every detail a
harmonious color scheme of red and
white. Electric lights shone through
red chryansthemums, lending a
charming effect to the decorations.

ENTINEL OF THE SENATE.
3. Fred Schumpert for 16 Years Ser
geant at Arms of Upper
Columbia State, 13th.
J. Fred Schumpert is rounding out
16 years' service as .the sergeant-at
arms of the- senate. To serve 16 years
in such a*position and retain the de
votion of every senator who has been
,in' the upper branch in those 16 years
is a noteworthy feat, but that is what
this minister of war of the senate has
accomplished. Mr. Schuimpert has a

His most valuable asset is his good
disposition, but hardly less valuable
is his justly distinguished appearance.
Without "FAed" Schampert latt the
head of the procession with the no
less dignified sword of state, a visit
from the senate to tne TrOuse would
fail from a dignified standpoint. Mr.
Schumpert was unanimously reelected
sergeant-at-arms at the beginning of
this session, and in placing his name
in nomination Senator Alan John
stone, of Newberry, said that with
"Fred" Schumpert at its head the sen.
ate could always feel assured that a
-triumphant march to -the house would
be accompanied by exceeding great
style and dignity. As Senator John
stone is the representative on the floor
of the senate of the county the "min
ister" honors wilth his presence in the
off season, this disproves "A prophet

Mr. Schumpert has seen many a
senator come and almost as many go.
In his 16 years of guardianship over
the senate he has given his' arm over
1,000 times to the presiding officer of
the senate and always with the same
stately tread that today characterizes
the march of Messrs. Schumpert and
Smith has he escorted the officer to
the chair of staite. He has sfiown sev
eral hundred senators to the bar to
receive the oath of office and no mat
ter who the senator might be has al
ways lent dignity to this performance.
If South Carolina were a State of
many advocate of woman suffrage'
the fact that "Fred" Schumpert is ser
geant-at-airms of the senate would
cause a tremendous upheaval in South
Carolina politics, for . the women
would want to vote just to give him
an office. With no sacrifice to dignity,
but just a trifle more politeness than
usual; the floor manager of the sen
ate is at 'his best when the senate is
honored by feminine visitors. With
Chesterfieldian grace 'he finds com
fortable seats for these visitors and
the cordiality with which they are re
ceived brings themn all back again.

"Mrs. Mary Bloom died yesterday

West avenue. She had geen in bad
health for years; but her family were

nitions of the end were noticeable for
only a'few hours. Mrs. Brloom was 'in
her 78th year. Shie was a member of
St. Mark's Lutheran cohurc'h and was
one Oi the most saintly women in the
church. She was a devoted wife and
mother, and lived close to the faith
he professed, and sto all that made for
good and no(ble womanhood. -Mrs.
Bloom's husband preceded 'her to the
grave many years ago. He was killed
in the memorable wreck at Indiain
Creek in 1880. The trestle gave way
and the train with its 'human freight
went to tie depths below. Mr. Bloom,

Snow in Spartanburg.
Sunday's Spartanburg Herald says:
i "The first snow of the winter fell in
Spartanburg yesterday afternoon. For
'an hour or more large snow flakes
swirled through the air in such pro
fusion that if the snowfall had con
tinued the ground would probably be
knee deep today."

'The Voice that Breathed O'er Eden,'
and the- happy couple, just could not
