Laurens, S. C.
Kindly advise me as to whose initial,
the groom's or the bride's, should be
engraved on a gift of silver table
Laurens, S. C.# Oct. 28, 1912.
Your inquiry regarding the cor
rect engraving for wedding silver
has just been received. There is no
set rule, nnd authorities differ as to
which is correct.
It is irguud by some that wedding
presents are gifts to the bride and
hot to the groom, but it is the opin
ion of the majority that the groom's
initials should mark the gift?for
why should the silver that she will
use in common with her husband all
her life bear the initial of a name
that is no longer hers?-in fact,
probably many of her guests would
not be familiar with her former
This latter custom prevails in the
fashion centres of Europe and
America, and has generally peen re
cognized by us as the correct form,
except, of course, where the gift
partakes of a strictly personal na
ture, such as ?Tbilet Articles, Jewel
Cases, Photo Frames, etc., when
the bride's initial is permissible.
Thanking you for this opportunity
of serving you, we remain

HIllBvillo, Nov. 4,.?Mr. and Mrs. W.
H. L. Thompson and son. Carl, were
the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew
Chapman, of Luna, Sunday.
Messrs. J. A. and K. C. Peden at
tended the Hoys' Corn club show at
Greenville. Saturday. E. 0. Peden won
a fine pair of shoes on the best, history
and secord of corn.
S. C. Weathors of Fair view was In
our section, Sunday.
W. H. Thompson and family were In
Greenville Wednesday, attending the
The Hillside corn club boys have
gathered their corn. Here are the
names of five of the seven boys and
the number of bushels each produced
on his acre:
F. L. Weathors, 46 bushels, 40 pounds.
E. C. Peden, 38 bushels, 13 pounds.
Andy Tolllson, 43 bushels, 8 pounds.
J. C. Wood, 34 bushels.
JuniUs Thomason, 43 bushels.
Their yields were remarkable ones,
considering how poor wero their
chances, owing to the long continued
dought in this section, which badly
hurt corn that was planted In May.
Their record yields on nh acre sets a
precedent In farming that should be
followed by every farmer who believes
Mr. and Mrs. W. H. L. Thompson and
G. W. Adalr, went to Slmpsonvllle.
Hillside Is getting ready for a
"bumper crop" in 1913. Hillside's two
score farmers will make a greater ef
fort?will go at more expense in mak
ing the yield of th* coming year
eclipse that of 1912, both In yield and
price. They will cause It to be worth
a greater value, In that they will be
more able to hold their cotton until
the price "suits their notion". They,
at last, have awoke from their long
sleep of backwardness, and' in this
progressive ago they do not, and will
not, belong to the roar. They must,
and will, go to the front. Four times
as many potatoes will be planted in
1913, as there were in 1912. If sea
sons prove favorable there will be
1000 more bushels of corn produced
next year than this. The production of
sweet potatoes in this section next
year, will be Increased 1000 bushels.
There will also be an Increase of about
1000 gallons of syrup. This means
progress. Our farmers are fast turn
ing from the Ideas of old, and In th'is
day of progresslveness. they wish to
try the new ideas. The land of Hill
side is valuable. With proper cultiva
tion, and favorable seasons Its pro
duction will exceed that of nny other
community in upper Carolina. We
need more progressive farmers in this
section. Our present corps of farmers
is alright, but our quantity Is not suf
ficient In twenty years Hillside has
been transformed from a wilderness
j Into a farming section that is surpass
ed by no other in South Carolina.
Hillside school will commence, Mon
day. It will start on Its task of teach
ing "young America" the new Idens?
the new thoughts?of the present day.
Miss Jones, of Slmpsonvllle, Is the
principal. Will Hopkins Is the as-,
slstant. This school has an enrollment
1 of 75. It is hoped Miss Joner. will en
joy her work here.
S. C. Cox and son. L. E. Cox, went

Donlds. Oct. 26.?Well V missed
Ringllng's show, I had been thinking
about it and the morel thought the
worse 1 wanted to go. I got up soon
that morning and hustled around
lively, but my good wife knew the
signs. She advised that I stay in the
house, as 1 was threatened with grip,
and it was raining.
I went up town but I noticed my
storm coat was missing and she didn't
hunt it up as usual, the show trains
was passing, and other folks wns
going, and 1 knowed If a clown stuck
his head out of a car, I was a goner.
But I remembered the rolling ?pln
message nnd turned my back on
worldly amusement, and went home to
cutting stove wood. But I heard about
one clown leading his little dog by a
well rope and another trimming his
corns, and I determined to see a show,
even If it caused conjugal infilicity.
So yesterday I slipped off to the Ab
beville fair, to see the man fly. It was
a great fair. The farm exhibits were
fine, the. racing good, then they had
Ita, the know all, there and the big
gest crowd ever. But most folks had
come to see the man fly, and he kept
cootrlng with his old concern until
every one thought it was like that
Anderson airship, but about half
past four he got his doofunny to act
ing and made a beautiful flight. He
went all around town and at last
got mixed up with a bunch of buz
zards he landed where he started and
in a few moments made a second
The fair was Hue as fairs ko. but
1 haven't gotten over missing the cir
cus. Capt. Smith the opera house man,
from Anderson, was in town today,
advertising "Baby Mine'' and when
Smith, comes fun follows: So 1 am a
going, and I challenge John CaUaham
to got up as big a crowd from llonea
Path as Donalds will send.
CaUaham says a chaperono is a
lady companion and a man companion
is a Chaperoner, so Donalds will have
both, and I am the chaperoner. So
boys get your partners you couldn't
take 'em to the circus on account
of the uncertain ways the clowns
dress and the onmanerly way the
act. But you can take them to the
settling of this baby difficulty.
