This was one of the most pleas
ant ? e have ever spent. Our congre
gations contributed much to our
happiness. Our family were the re
cipient of necessities of life, much
of the luxuries, personal gifts to
each of the family, a purse of fifty
dollars and last (not least) the love
and esteem of the churches. In ad
dition to all that our present charge
(Edgefieid, Trenton, Johnston) con
tributed, our former congregation
remembered us as if we were still
living in their midst. For all these
things we are under many obliga
tions; and trust that we may prove
worthy of such friendship.
The Baileys.
A large crowd of relatives and
friends gathered at the residence
of Mr. Will White of White Town
on Christmas day, December 25,
to celebrate the marriage of their
daughter, Miss Effie Mae to Mr. Ed
win Guy Jennings. At two o'clock
they were happily married by Rev.
J. Earle Freeman, and then an old
time wedding dinner, which the
newer-customs have not been able
to supplant, was served. A splendid
graphophone furnished music
throughout the occasion. When there
were no words on the tongue, or
pleasurable thoughts or sayings to
provoke the lips to smiles or laugh
ter, the ear was entertained with
the well selected music. The occa
sion was a pleasant one, and while
this scribe ?vas loath to leave his
family to eat his share of the turkey
dinner at Mr. J. R. Bodie's, yet he
was bountifully fed here, while Mrs.
W. H. Parks' dinner on Thursday

Gone to Her Reward.
Mrs. Virginia Addison, whose
name has been loved and honored
since the memory all the present
generation, has passed out to that
haven of rest towards which all
earthly pilgrims are travelling. Mrs,
Addison bad reached the age after
which the scriptures tell us there is
but labor and sorrow, but she had
continued her daily duties which
she loved up toa fortnight before
her death. She had always been a
comfort in her home, and in the
whole community. For years there
was not a sick or suffering one that
she did not minister to in life and
lament in death. She had been the
solace to hundreds of broken-heart
ed friends and neighbors as the
years had come and gone. As long
as she had the strength, she was
one of the most active members of
the Baptist church, and was always
in her place until the feebleness of
age made her going impossible.
She was of a very sociable disposi
tion and loved the company of her
Mrs. Addison raised a large fam
ily of children, but at the time of
ber death had in the home with her
but two who are still unmarried,Jno.

sides these two there are Mrs. Rose
Murrell of Florida, Messrs. Joseph,
Walter, and Bacon Addison, and a
number of grandchildren.

Sheppard-Lyon Marriage.
On Wednesday afternoon at five
o'clock the 18th of December, a
marriage of very great interest to
our town and community, was cele
brated at the Baptist church, when
Miss Ethel Lucile Sheppard was
married to Prof. Thomas Jordan
The prelude to the happy occa
sion was a musical program on the
pipe orgai', "Nevin's Love Song"
played by Mrs. Mamie N. Tillman
announcing the approach of the
bridal party, and on the eve of
their entrance to the church, a beau
tiful selection from Lucia Di Lam
mermoor pleased the expectant au
The decorations were unusually
original and appropriate fora win
ter marriage, the colors being white
and green. The chancel, aisles, choir
gallery and windows were covered
in white with tasteful addition of
southern smilax, most gracefully
applied. Magnificent palms and
ferns adorned the chancel, and from
the corners of the church a drapery
of filmy white, edged with a long
and graceful fringe of pine needles,
gave a beautiful and unique effect.
Promptly at five o'clock "The
Bridal Chorus" gave the signal
that the bridal party were entering
and the ribbon pages on the oppo
site sides of the church entered and
marked the aisles. These were four
very fair and handsome little boys,
Mobley and Wallace Sheppard,
nephew and cousin of the bride,
George Evans and Dozier Tomp
kins, and were followed by the
ushers, Capt. Roraanelle B. Curry,
and Capt. H. Kerr Taylor of Edge
field, members of Jthe faculty of
the S. C. C. I., Mr. .Thomas H.
Moffatt of Columbia, and Mr. W.
Wallace Harris of Abbeville enter
ing from opposite sides and stand
ing in pairs, having crossed at the
After the ushers came the brides
maid, Miss Hannah Rogers of So
ciety Hill, and down the opposite
aisle the dame of honor, Mrs. Percy
Pratt Burns, of Birmingham, Ala.,
a sister of the bride. Following the
danie of honor was the maid of
honor, Miss Fannie Sheppard, also
a sister of the bride. Just preceding
the flower girls, Margaret Lyon, a
very beautiful little niece of Prof.
L^on, bore to the altar a silver
plate on which lay the wedding
ring. She, in turn, was followed by
two little beauties of the brunette
type-^June Nicholson and Mary
Marsh, tarrying tastefully decorated
baskets from which they scattered
the pathway of the coming bride
with roses and carnations.
As a climax to the transcendant*
scene bf beauty, the bride entered
on the ann of her father, Mi. Or
lando Sheppard, and was met at
the altar by the groom and his best
man, Mr. Percy Pratt Burns of
Birmingham, Alabama.
While the pastor of the church,
Dr. M. D. Jeffries, spoke the sol
emn service, a beautiful soft-toned
organ accompaniment made a con
cord of sweet sounds and the clod
ing was the ring ceremony and a
prayer, the wedding party passing
out in reverse order to the strains
of Mendelssohn's wedding march.
The attendants wore dresses of
white charmeuse with elaborate
bouquets of American Beauty roses
with graceful maline bows of simi
lar color. The bride wore a magni
ficent gown of white charmeuse
with real lace and pearl trimming,
and carried a shower bouquet of
bride roses and lillies of the valley.
Immediately after the ceremony
a reception for almost one hundred
guests took place at the handsome
colonial home of the bride's parents
Mr. and Mrs. Orlando Sheppard.
All of the first floor was thrown
open, and beautiful and unique
decorations, different in each room,
surprised and pleased the eye, as the
guests went from one to the other,
viewing the elaborate array of hand
some gifts, and partaking of the
abundant and delightful three
course refreshments.
The guests from a distance were:
Mrs. John Lyon and W. R. Brad
ley and W. Wallace Harris of Ab
beville; Dr. and_ Mrs. John Lyon,
Jr., Ninety Six, Thomas H. Moffatt,
Columbia; Mrs. T. Ellison Simpson
and Miss Hannah Rogers, Society
Hill; Orlando Sheppard, Jr., Atlan
ta, Ga.; Mr. and Mrs. P. P. Burns,
Birmingham, Alabama.
Mr. anc" Mrs. Lyon left Wednes
day evening for a wedding journey
of two or three weeks through the
north and east. After their return
to Edgefield they will be at home
in the beautiful cottage recently
built by Mr. Lyon near the college.
A Drunken Cow.
A Virginia farmer wrote to the
Missouri station, reporting that his
cow was drunk. He didn't think she
really was, but he said so in his let
ter. When the case was investigated,
it was found that she was actually
intoxicated-drunk on silage that
had not been kept as silage should
be preserved.-Farm and Fireside.
