Yesterday was a "gonu-wlne" win
ter day in Anderson. Tho visitors
spending the day in tho city declared
that Anderson ls eaelly the eoldert
town In the world but this was en
tirely due to tho fact that they loft
homo before thc cold snap seized their
villages. All indications are that An
dbrson will experience a heavy frost |
this Thorning. 1
Anderson pcop'e yesterday receiv
ed invitations to the marriage of Miss I
Annie Lou McDaniel to .lohn Leon
Newman, which event is to take place
Tuesday evening, November 10 at G j
o'clock. Tho ceremony will be per
formed at Buncombe street Methodist |
church and will be ono of the princi
pal society events of tho month in |
Greenvjllle. Both tho bride and
groom aro well known In Anderson
and have a number of friends hero
and it is probable that several An
derson people will make the trip.
Notwithstanding thc fact that hun
dreds of people came to . Anderson
yesterday for the 101 Ranch show,
which was herc for, the day, splendid
order marked tho day on tho part ot
the visitors and there was quite a
difference in tho nnpearanco of the
pollco blotter last night and that of
a few weeks ago when Ringling
Brothers circus visited.tho city. The
crowd was good humored, there was
very little liquor In evidence and
nothing marred Anderson's second
"show day" cf the season.
