The college auditorium was tilled on Saturday evening with students, and many interested friends and ac quaintances of Misses Clara Sauls and Georgia Mae WateB, on the oc casion of their graduating recital in the school of expression. ~ je varied program gave play to the diversity of gifts of these two popular young women, both seniors in the literary department of the South Carolina Co-Educational In stitute. Miss Sauls was especially attract ive in "Telephone Romance," reach ing her highest attainment in hu morous selections. Miss Sauls is from Florida, and is one of the most popular students of the col lege. Miss Georgia Mae Wate? bas been a student of expression for some time, and bas always pleased her audiences, but more than ever on this occasion. She was very pleasing in the lighter vein, but in Hiawatha that strangely rhythmed song of America's most beloved poet, she carried the audience back to the early days of our great coun try, casting a halo of romance around the wigwam cf the Indian maiden and the heroic brave. Miss Wales expects to make teaching a profession,and in her literary course at college, as well as in expression, she has won honor to herself and the memory of her father, the late P. R.

Bussey, Modoc, S. C., R. F. D. 5-7-41. Music Recital. Monday evening in the college auditorium, a delightful occasion attracted many friends and students, being tho graduating music recital of Miss Sallie May Miller, very gra ciously assisted by Miss Thelma Bailey on the violin. A number of accomplished oian ists have received their instruction from the gifted musicians connected' with the S. C. C. I., but instruction does not make the musician-the gift must be inherent-and yet the gifted student can bot become pro ficient unless ably instructed. On the occasion of this music recital there wa6 abundant evidence that both requirements had been lavishly supplied. Miss Miller has been a student of music here for several years and in her first term, gained for herself the reputation of possessing unusual musical gifts. She is a very gra cious, refined and pretty young wo man, and in every way titted to adorn any occasion. This mnsicil accomplishment will be an added .barm lo her promising young life. In every number on Monday evening, all of which were difficult selections, and played only by ar tists. Miss Miller in style and tech nique, and heart, manifested every indication of the musician. The numerous and beautiful flowers which surrounded the footlights in dicated Miss Miller's popularity among the students as well as tb? Edgefield friends. The program follows: Chopin_Ballade in a Flat Op. 47 Beethoven.Sonota Op. 106 Allegro Wagner."To the Evening Star" Liszt.:.Rhapsodie No. 15 D??ela..5th Air Varie Moszkowski..Tarentella Death of Little Child ?Services at Republican Church-Pic nic at Key Bridge. Last Friday afternoon the baby girl of Mr. and Mrs. Wyley Floyd was buried at Red Hill. The child was sick for only a few days. All was done that could be done to eave its life, but God saw fit to take it; we bow in submission to His will. The Lord gave, the Lord hath tak en away, blessed be the name of the Lord. There was a good congregation at Republican last Sunday morning. The tieroi<es by the children were splenuiu. After a short sermon on missions preached by the pastor, a good contribution for foreign mis sions was taken. The congrepa tion at Red Hill Sunday afternoon was i?ood. The pastor has been preaching a series of sermons to young people which we hope will be helpful to all who attend. The young peop'e of Red Hill gathered at the Key bridge on Tur key creek last Saturday morning for a picnic. The day was spent in fun and frolic, bolt riding, swim ming, seining, jumping the rope, fishing and talking. Your corres pondent arrived on the sec?, about 12 o'clock and it was no?, long be fore he stood on the great high bridge and shouted that '"dinner was ready, all come," and they came by fifties, Uns and twos, and such a dinner!

Doing one thing well brings suc cess. Doan's kidney pills are for one thing only. For weak or disordered kidneys. Here is Edgefield evidence to prove their worth. T Gray, Edgefield, S. C., says: "A few months ago kidney trouble came op me with torturing pains in my back and sides. The passages of the kidney secretions were ir regular and I felt so tired and worn out that it was only with great effort that I was able to get around. My back became lame and sore I could hardly stoop or straighten. Fortunately Doans kidney pills were being advertised at that lime and some one advised me to try them. I did so, and the results were very satisfactory. The contents of one box made me feel like a different man, driving away my ?pains and aches and improving my health. Doan's kidney pills certainly de serve endorsement and I give mine willingly.'' For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents. Foster-Mi lburn Co., Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the United Sutes.

Bryan to the diplomats at Washington in honor of Ambassa dor Bryce on the eve of his return to England, nnfermented grape juice was substituted for wine which is usually si-rved on state oc sations. The incident was imme diately seized upon by critics the country over as an unprecedented "break", and the comments called forth a statement from .Mr. Bryan in which he explains how tho''toe total" customs of his house have been observed and how they will continue thus in his official rela tions with the government. |f Mr. Bryan does not drink wine ? and he does not propose that it j should be served his gue.-ts, no|< matter what the custon: or the oc casion. He is not attempting to establish official precedent only in so-far as the custom effects the house of Bryan. Notwithstanding the criticism the "wineless dinner" has provok ed, at hume and abroad, the exam ple will be far reaching in its influ ence for temperance. Here is Mr. Bryan's state ment: "We do not intend to magnify, by mentioning it, the importance of the non-use of wine at the dinner to Ambassador Bryce Monday night, but as the papers have made, some inaccurate reference to the mat ter the fact might as well be known. "This was the first dinner which we have given the members of the diplomatic corps, and therefore the first time when we came into con flict with the social customs of serving wine at dinner. The seven other ambassadors then in the city and their ladies were invited to meet Ambassador and Mrs. Bryce and as all the gentlemen guests present were from foreign countries I thought it proper to explain to them the reason for our failure to con form to what seems to have been customary in the matter. Believ ing that the issue should be met frankly in the beginning, I told them, when we sat down to the ta ble, that Mrs. Bryan and I had been tee-totalers from our youth, as were our parents before us, and had nev er served liquors at our table; that when the president was kind enough to tender me the portfolio of state I asked him whether our failure to serve wine would be any embarrassment to the administra tion and be generously left the matter to our discretion. "I suggested that I thought it unfair to assume that those coming to us from abroad would judge us harshly, as being unwilling to tolerate the maintenance of a tra ditional custom, and expressed the hope that our friendship would be made so apparent to them and our hospitality so cordial that they would overlook this weakness in us, if they regarded it as a weak ness. My remarks were applauded by the company, and we never spent a more enjoyable evening. "That is all there is to the mat ter and we consider the incident closed and the custom established so far as we are concerned."-^-Lau rens Herald. Best Medciine for Colds.
