The Advertiser carries a number of
bank statements in its issue today.
While one not versed in banking, ex
cept in giving notes, cannot tell all
that there Is to be known about a
bank by its statement, still one can
tell whether conditions look healthy
or not. We believe that a istudy of
Laurens county banks will show that
they are more than ordinarily sound
and that they are in a strong tposi
tion to carry on the work they are
called on to (1o. All of them, no doubt,
have had trying situations to face but
the conservatism that has charac

good stead during the past year.

'Iaiford, July 1 I.-In the beautiful
grove around tli residence of Mr. and
Mrs. J. D. Johnson on Tuesday, .1tiy
i was a scene of gay festivity and
mirth, when ,the relatives and friend,;
of Mrs. Julia Lanford Johnson gave a
surpriso ;picnic in ho)or of the 76th
birthday anniversary of their much
beloved "Aunt Julia".
After greetings, hearty congratula
tions and an hour or two of pleasant
conversation, the 'merry party re
paired to a table beautifully and taste
fully arranged under a magnificent
old oak tree which ,was literally
groaning under a wealth and bounty
of -good things to eat.
'When the party was seated Capt.
J. W. ;Lanford made a few well chos
en remarks, announcing a very ap
propriate paper which was read by
Mrs. J. L. Higgins in behalf of the
Bible Class of which Aunt Julia is a
faithful member. The paper was
swell written and suitable to the oc
casion, telling dear- "Aunt Julia" of
the iplace of honor and high esteem
she holds in the hearts of her church
and Sunday School associates and re
calling her. many words of encourage
ment and cheer, the countless deeds
of love and kindness she has shown to
others along her pathway of life. Af
ter this reading a poem composed by
Mrs. J. W. . 8ohnson, wa. beautifull,y
delivered by Ir. It. Yates Waldrep, a
recent graduate of Wofford College.
This poem added much merriment and
fun to the occasion, qgiving just the
touch of humor needed to restore the
smiles to faces saddened by the
pathos of Mrs. illiggins' address.
Mr. and Mrs. B. W. Johnson, of
Arcadia, Mrs. J. W. Johnson, Mrs. r.
S. Higgins, Mrs. C. 'D. Cox, Mrs. C. L.
Waldrep and Mrs. Alice -Moore served
as a committee to wait oil the table.
Then kodaks of the crowd, repre
sentiug the 3rd and 4th generation,
were made by Miss .Nannie Mae -Lan
ford. They were honored with the
presence of Mrs. J. T. littlejohn, of
Scranton, whose husband is a leading
pastor of the Baptist denomination.
Late in the afternoon big waiters of
delicious ice cream refreshed the
guests for their homeward journey.
