- A Masonic Relic.
Mr. A. R. Hamilton, of Eas
1ey, was in town on the 18th and
exhibited among his Masonic
friends a Masonic apron which
is at least ninety years old. It
is of home-made silk, and is in
a fine state of preservation. It
is a Master's apron, and has fif
teen of the emblems nicely
worked in it by hand. They
are so worked as to give the de
sired color. It is a rare piece of
art, and very few pieces of nee
de work that will equal it.
It is the property of W. H. H.
Ariail, who lives near Easley.
It is a family relic which he
prizes very highly. It formerly
belonged to his and Mr. Hamil
ton's grandfather, John Arialil.
John Arial came to this country
from Connecticut by way of
Charleston in 1804. He lived at
Pickensville, and followed the
mercantile business until his
death in 1836. The apron was
made by his wife while they
lived in Cofineeticut. * * *
