State*. Large Crowds Expected.
Colubla, Oct. 12.?Twenty thousand
posters of artistic design and execu
tion, printed in eight colors, will be
posted conspicuously throughout the
Southeast during the next few weeks
to call attention to the Fifth National
Corn Exposition here next January
and Fabruary. The design selected by
the Exposition management was that
submitted by .Mr. liristoin Adams, a
Washington artist, and it is believed
to be the most effective poster ever
gotten out by the National Corn Ex
position. Leading railroads ?of the
Southeast have offered their services
in the distribution of the posters, and
have agreed to post them throughout
their respective territories. individ
uals who wish to place some of these
posters eonspicously can obtain copies
by applying to the Exposition manage
ment at Columbia.
In addition to the excellent educa
tional facilities which compose the
Exposition, this event will afford an
Unparalleled opportunity for the gath
ering together of thousands of people
from many sections of the country,
together with the various attractions
incident upon crowded streets, carni
vals, gala days and other pleasures of
a social nature. With the State Leg
islature in session, South Carolina will

^ l OLD TIME MARRIAGES. *
For the next four months there will
be marrying all over the state. The
weddings of this day and time differ
rtiuVh from what they were one hun
dred years ago.
Then there were no showers, no
long practice by the musicians, no
cart loads of presents, on automobiles,
no array of fine clothes, and no di
vorces to follow.
A citizen of Cherokee County re
ports how his father and mother
were married about a hundred years
ago. The groom that was to he had
worked his farm and had a year's
supply of meat and corn on hand. He
also had a good horse and his fann
ing tools. He had saved a few dol
lars to carry him through the next
When the day came to marry he
put on his best homespun ' clothes,
mounted his horse and rode to the
bride's home where a few friends had
assembled. The ceremony was per
formed, the wedding dinner enjoyed
and the "infare" followed next day
at his lather's home. When the bride
left her home, she rode off on a fine,
?well groomed horse, belonging to her
father. All the guests rode horse
back or walked.
The third day, instead of a honey
moon trip abroad, the bride and
groom went to their own home. The
furniture consisted of his bed given
by his mother, and the bride's bed,
"with the quilts, sheets and counter
panes she had made with her own
Our Cherokee friend reported that
he had heard his mother say that
she cooked her first meals with two
skiilets, a small pot and oven. That
was about all the cooking utensils on
hand. There were two or three extra
chairs, perhaps. A water bucket and
wasiipan filled out the kitchen bill of
furniture. That is the way hundreds
of couples began life ? century ago.
There was as much love and real
satisfaction in such homes then as
brides and grooms find in steam
heated and well lighted houses these
It is doubtful whether present mar
riage methods, with all their pomp
and parade, furnish any better men
and women than the former simple
ones did. A few persons in the up
country In that day could afford car
riages, but it was a rare sight to see
one. Men and women rode horse
back, and it was very usual to see
wife or daughter riding behind hus
band or brother when horses were
You young people who take rides In
"?hug-me-tlght" bungles and automo
biles do not understand how hard It
was to hold hands or say sweet things
when riding horseback. You do not
know the methods of 'cutting out"
iPractlced by young men when they
would ride up and take possession of
??another fellow's girl.
?There was no throwing of rice and
told shoes for luck then, there was
;none of the trough treatment given to
:the brides and grooms which Is ad
ministered now in some places.
The simple marriages and the sim
ple life gave the country a sturdy,
(enduring population which has sur
vived and made the country what
