TB MASONIC SANQUBT.
The Worshipped Master and Wardens of
Amity Lodge, No. SI, A. P. M. Enter
tain Their Brethren and Friends
A DelightfWl Affair.
One of the most delightful and pleas
ant affairs in the history of Masonry in
Newberry County, was the banquet in
the Armory Monday night tendered to
Amity Lodge, No. 87, by Worshipful
Master Wm. E. Pelham, Senior, War
den Geo. S. Mower and Junior Warden
I. H. Hunt.
Several prominent Masons through
out the State had been invited, and
among those present were Alessrs. W.
W. Lumpkin, of Columbia, J. C. Swy
gert, Master of Peak Lodge, Drs. G.
F. IHunter, C. T. Wyche and Mr. R. T.
C. Hunter, of Prosperity Lodge.
Several letters were read from per
sons throughout the State sending their
regrets at not being able to be present
and extending their best wishes and
congratulations to the officers and mem
bers of Amity Lodge.
The banquet was served by the dainty
hands of the fair members of the Bach
elor Maids of this city, and it was a
magnificent one. The large hall was
prettily decorated and the long tables
presented a beautiful appearance- every
detail being arrayed to a nicety.
The menu consisted of oysters, crack
ers, celery, turkey, cranberry sauce,
pickles, olives, beaten biscuit, chicken
salad, nuts, fruits, coffee and cigars.
Toasts were responded to by Maj.
Lumkin, of Columbia, Dr. Wycho. of
Prosperity, Mr. R. T. C. Hunter of St.
Lukes, Mr. Jno. C. Swygert, of Peak,
and Mr. E. B. Wilbur, of this city, all
of which added much to the pleasure
of the occasion and did much to instill
more deeply into every Mason present
the first essential in the Masonic creed,
the spirit of love and brotherhood.
The occasion will long be rerrem
bered by those who had the pleasure of
being one of the number as being the
most pleasant affair in the history of
Amity Lodge, and the Master and War
den of that body are to be congratu
lated on the happy manner in which
they entertained their brethren, all of
whom wish for them a most successful
year in their Masonic duties.

bats and dancing, also including, the
20th century sensation "the eruption of
Mt. Pelee," and other subjects pro
duced by electricity. This will be a
first class attraction, not an objectiona

opinion, the motor cycle whirl is a more
daring feat than the much taiked of

body. Popular prices will prevail.
