CO GRESSMAN\ LEV ER TO WVED.
3iss Lucille Scurry Butler to Become
Bride of the Hon. A. F. Lever
Lexington, July 3.-Of State and na
tional interest will be the marriagE
of Asbury Francis Lever, the 7th dis
trict congressman from South Caro
lina, and Miss Lucille Scurry Butler
of Lexington, the happy event to bE
solemnized on next Wednesday even
ing, July 5, at 6 o'clock. This an
nouncement will come as a surprise t(
Mr. Lever's friends throughout th4
State. He came to Lexington a day of
two ago presumably on a business
trip, and nothing was known of his in
tentions until the announcement wa:
The marriage is to be solemnized ai
the home of the bride's father in Eas1
Lexington, and will be very quiet, nc
formal invitations having been issued
However, the public generally is in.
vited to witness the ceremony. Miss
Butler will be attended by her three
sisters, Mrs. W. A. Wright, of Atlan
ta, and Misses Alice Mae and Lillie
Butler. M. E. Zeigler, Esq., of Orange
burg, former private secretary to Mr.
Lever, will be the best man. The cere
mony will be performed by the Rev.
William H. Hiller, of Columbia, a col
legemate of Mr Lever, assisted by -the
Rev. T. S. Brown, pastor of St. -Steph
en's Lutheran church, Lexington.
The bride-elect is the second daugh
ter of Major John Wilson Butler, who
comes of the old and distinguished
family of Abbeville and Edgefield But-.
lers, and is a relative of the late Gen.
M. C. Butler, the famous Confederate
leader,-and later prominent in the his
tory of the State-both in the days of
reconstruction and later in the United
States senate. While a resident of
Athens, Ga., she was a student at Lucy
Cobb institute, and was later graduat
ed from Due West Female college, of
Due West, S. C. Aside from any fam
ily connection Miss Butler is a woman
of rare charms and a pleasing person
ality. Since coming to Lexington she
has, by her uniform kindness and
courtesy, endeared herself to all, and
the number of her close personal
friends has steadily increased.
Mr. Lever has been a member of
congress for ten years, sudoeeing the
hamented Dr. Stokes, synd his popular
ity is a~mply attested 'to by the fact
.that he has been repeatedly re-elected
by overwhelming majorities.
Im!mediately after the ceremony Mr.
and Mrs. Lever -will leave for a ten
Sdays' trip to the mountains of North
Carolina, after which Mr. Lever will
.return to Washington to resume his
Washington Friends Surprised.
Washington, July 3.-When Repr
sentative Asbury F. Lever, of the 7th
South Carolina district, left Washing
ton last week he innocently explain
ed that he was going homne for a short
rest until the house took up the cot
~ton schedule. He did not intimate that
Cupid had anything to do with,his
departure. It swas, therefore, a great
surprise when the news got out that
Mr. Lever is to return to the capitol a
bridegroom. The wedding will occur
next Wednesday afternoon at Lexing
ton, S. C., and the bride will be Miss
Lucille Butler, the very attractive and
accomplished daughter of Major J. W.
Butler of that town. The success with
which Mr. Lever had concealed his
romantic purpose is evidenced by the
fact that even his r,acretary, Mr. Wing
ard, in response to an inquiry today,
said that he possessed no inkling
whatever of the coming marriage, and
was as much surprised as the rest of
Wie congressman's many friends here.
Mr. Lever is chairman of the house
eommittee on education, ranking
member of the house committee on
-' agriculture and one of the most in
* fluential men In his wing of the capi
tol. It was feared that he had become
a confirmed bachelor.
The unfortunate isolation of the
Hon. John Barrett and the Hon. Frank
-Hitchcock is now more conspicuo1's
DEL AY i CLOSING MILJL.
Situation Complicated, Says Chafrman
Sanders, of the Penitentiary
Columbia, June 29.-The first public
statement from the board of directors
of the State penitentiary, since the an
nouncement that the hosiery mill
would be abolished, was made this
morning by Mr. Arthur K. Sanders, 01
Hagoo, chairman of the board.
Chairman Saiiders said thatn in viev
of the position taken by Governo>
1Blease that the hosiery mill should bf
immediately abolished and the corn
ments and criticisms of the course be.
ing pursued, he had determined to ex
plain the board's position. This thi
board had not intended to do until af
ter the regular meeting on July 12
when the hosiery mill proposition wil
again be taken up for consideration.
At the recent special meeting of thE
board that announcement was made.
Three Propositions From Graham.
Chairman Sanders explained that
the board now has three propositions
from Capt. J. M. Graham, the lessee of
Capt. Graham is willing to close the
mill under certain conditions. The
hosiery mill under certain conditions.
The hosiery mill contract is of force
for five years, and no provision was
made for either side withdrawing
therefrom. Some time ago it was
stated Capt. Graham himself at the time
of the signing of the new contract
w&nted to put a clause in that either
side could withdraw with. certain no
tice, but Governor Ansel did not wish
was not framed that way
this to be allowed and so the contract
"Of course," said Chairman Sanders
today, "it is a case of give and take.
We have to make some concessions.
The mill could not very well be closed
down arbitrarily. When we met re
cently we found the legal complica
tions that were in the way and are
now seeking to adjust them. At the
last meetiidg we did not feel able to
decide the matter and postponed ac
tion until the 12th of July, when our
regular meeting comes. At that meet
ing Governor Blease, the chairman of
the State board of health and the at
torney general are invited to be pres
Will Arrange Then.
Chairman Sanders continued:
"At that time we hope to make ar
rangements that will be satisfactory
to all parties. We will arrange a way
to get out of the legal and binding
contract that will meet all require
ments. We have no desire to delay the
matter, and if we are allowed to settle
it we will do so with credit to our
selves and so as to satisfy all interest
ed in the lease."
Chairman Sanders explained that
the board had asked for legal advice.
The attorney general's office has been
asked for an opinion, as was publish
ed a few days ago% The State board
of health also asked the attorney gen
eral's office for an opinion.;
Mr. Sanders did not explain the na
ture of the Graham propositions, but
he said that certain concessions would
have to be made to Capt. Graham in
order to have the contract legally
Children and Flies.
This is not too long to read. It is
from the Charlotte Observer.
"I believe," declares Dr. Woods Hut
ehinson, the noted writer on medical
topics, "that we could utilize an enor
mous amount of good enthusiasm and
good human activity now going to
waste under the name of 'mischief' if
we could put the boys to work on the
fly problem." In the fight waged
against yellow fever by American phy
sicians in ou.r sub-tropical dependen
cies the children were found to be of
'the very greatest assistance in de
stroying the breeding placs of the
death-dealing mosquito. Older people
were apathetic, but once a child's in
terest in 'the new kind of sport was
developed, he or she became indefati.
gable in pursuing it, with incalculable
benefit resulting to the community.
San Antonia, Texas, inaugurated a
thorugh mosquito campaign in its pub
lic schools, feachink tale children the
natural history of the insect, illustrat
ing its growth in well-equipped aquar
iums and suggesting the best ways of
attacking them. The result was that
in the neighborhood of I0,000 active,
,energetic mosquito destroyers were let
loose upon the San Ant9nio breed with
very gratifying results.
'The same step is practical when it
comes to the campaign against the
house-fly. Almost any child at odd
times may be found pursuing flies
merely for the pleasure to be derived
from tearing off the wings. This prac
tice is an example of the absolutely
thoughtless cruelty to animals which
is every child's inheritance from a
remote past but it is also evidence that
children would not be hard to interest
in the fly campaign. Instead of pur
suing individual specimens and de
stroying them the chilldren could eas
lily be led to recognize spots especially
adapted to th.e breeding of flies and
taught how to a,bolish such sources of
The thing can not be done if the
~practical part of the enterprise is
brought too prominently to the front.
This would make the children's ef
forts resemble work too closely." We
think that any community which ac
tively interests its younger member-s
1in the anti-fly campaign will be destin
ed to obtain results which will sur
prise even the most optimistic.
