Capt. Mike Salter, who fought
through tho late war, was active in

The morning they left he had made,
at his individual expanse, several large

it carried to the train. We wish Capt.
Salter could get a good appointment
in the army. lie would make a true
and brave soldier.

Contest at Walnutta.
The inclement weather prevented
many from attending the contest at
Walnutta, Tuesday night, but those
who ventured out were more than
paid for it All the young ladies did
remarkably well, and many compli
ments have hicn showered upon them.
The first priz-;, a gold medal, was
awarded to Miss Elcne Hiatt, and the
second, a subscription to the American
Home Magazine, was given to Miss
Fannie Spratt At the conclusion oi
tne contest, an old-fashioned quilting
bee was given, in which Misses Jennie
Wallace and Lucy Ramsey, took the
Honor to Them.
On Friday afternoon, R. H. Tomlin
son, J. J1. Uuncan, Judge liurnside.
and one or two others, suggested thai
a supper be spread for the soldier boys
previous to their departure. The sug
gestion met with prompt approval and
the work was quickly commenced.
Misses Mary Miller, May Hughes and
Dove Harris readily and cheerfully
undertook the task of soliciting dona
tions for the spread. The three noble
ladies walked all afternoon in a
drenching rain, going from house to
house collecting the provisions. At
eight o'clock that night a row of ta
bles in the hall at the Court House
were ladened with many kind of good
things to tempt the palates of the
young warriors. We nave never seen
a more bountiful public supper spread
than was there for the boys. The ta
bles were waited upon by Misses Ber
tha Burnside, Nellie Marrs, Mary Mil
ler, May Hughes, Elisa Lusk, Altie
Marksbury, Bessie Bush, Alberta An
derson, Dove Harris, Lula Anderson,
and many others of Lancaster's socie
ty folks. After ample justice had been
done the supper, the boys were ad
dressed by Capt Herndon, Hon. R. H.
Tomlinson, G. B. Swinebroad, Rev.
Henry Faulconer, W. L Williams, P.
W. Spencer, Lewis Walker and others.
The speeches were all good and full of
timely advice to the boys, wno ap
plauded the speakers frequently.
Too much praise cannot be shower
ed upon the young ladies for the pat
riotic work done by them. 'J he weatl -
er was miserable, and they ran the
risk of a spell of sickness by plodding
through the rain, but they worked
bravely through the entire afternoon
and 'til ten o'clock in the n'g'it to
give the boys a good send-off and
show them that our people apprecia
ted their bravery in risking their lives
for Uncle Sam's country.
