One of the prettiest weddings of
the season was that of Miss Virginia
Singleton Nelson to Mr. Butler Nor- I
man Kelly which took place at 6 1
o'clock July 15th at-the country home
of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Plowden. The I
house was handsomely decorated
with potted plants a::'i lovely roses,
just before the ceremony the assemb
ling guests enjoyed a musical pro
gram delightfully rencered by Miss
Caroline Brightman of Georgetown,
S. C. and by Mrs. lames Grayson who
sang Oh, promise me". Mr. Lewis
Sanders also sang a solo. To the
strains of the wedding march from
Lohrengrin the bridal party entered
in the following order from the stairs
Misses Gladys \Veeks of Pinewoodl
and Tiny Rogan of Sumter as bride's
maids attired in lovely white organ.
(lie dresses with pink tulle hats and
carried pink gladiolas and fern. Mrs.
Herbert Walters of Charlotte, N. C.
as dame of honor in pink tulle and
hiss Clara Tennent as maid of honor
in pink organdie and both wearing
pink tulle hats.
The bride who entered with her
brother, .James Nelson was lovely in
her dress of white embroidered "Geor
Bette Crepe" the graceful tulle veil
being hlvd in place by a bandeau of
pearls which was very effective. She
I carried a shower bouquet of white
gladiolas and fern, under a lovely
white bell she was met by the bride
groom who was attended by his friend
Mr. Lewis Sanders. The bride was
preceded by two litte flower girls
Misses Margaret Weeks and Tue
Lesesne and the ring-bearer little
Mary Virginia Plowden neice of the
bride brought in the rng on a little
I silver tray.
Delightful refreshments of cake and
cream were served by the following
young ladies: Misses Elizabeth
Fletcher Winston, Mary Broughton,
Pinewood; Lyne DuRant, Manning;
and Lillie Coskrey Summerton. Misses
I Anita McCutchen and Kathleen Bain
served delightful fruit punch during

For the past week we have had ex
cessive rainfall in this section and all
3 renorts say that this is very general
all over the Southeastern states. We
. note that some state that in some see
I tions that the rain fall has been so
very heavy as to ruin practically all
the crops. The crops in this con
I munity were above the average for
j the time of the year un.il this recent
rain fall and we cannot very well es
I timate the damage until the rainy
1 eason is over and the sun begins to
- shine with all its might in August
I delight. It is certain that cotton will
shed if this occurs anti it might be
- well inasmuch as we nave had such
excessive rainfall for it to stop grad
ually and not all at once. Flood
- warnigs have been issuedl by the
I Department of Agriculture and all
1 rivers are booming full at this writ
ing which will endanger all cattle in
the swvamps. The cou- crop) has
pretty wvell matured amal will not. be
affected so much by the tremendous
rains. Some farmers are much wor
riedi over conditions .lust nlow however
we always invariably over estimate
cron damages and in most cases
everything turns out all right. This
general rainfall all over the cotton
helt. will tend to raise the price of
'ot.ton which will pr'ove the best thing
in the long run.
