Mrs. M. P. Wells entertained the
local chapter, TJ. D. C., at her home
on Tuesday afternoon, when an un
usually pleasant and profitable
meeting was held with about thirty
The meeting was conducted by
Mrs. Lovick Smith, and the histori
an, Miss Mamie Luke,was in charge
of a very interesting program. This
was as follows: "Causes that led to
the war between the states," Mrs.
B. E. Nicholson; "Stonewall Jack
son," Mrs. J. W. Peak; "Why did
the southern states secede?" Miss
Hortense Padgett; "Formation of
the southern states," Miss Ruth
Tompkins. This was followed also
by a poem dedicated to Gen. Mar
tin ^ary, rendered by Miss Ruth
At the close of .he program a de
lightful sweet course, consisting of
Charlotte Russe and cake was serv
W. C. T. U. Convention at
The people of Trenton and the
unions of Edgefield county enjoyed
a delightful day together at the
Methodist church on Tuesday last.
The object of the meeting xwas to
call the unions together and through
a program to become better ac-!
quain ted with the work and as Mrs.
Amy C. Weech of Alexandria, Va.,
was in our state, and could visit
only one point in Edgefield county,
it was deemed a very desirable
thing to hold a meeting centrally
located, convenient to as many of
the unions as possible.
At eleven o'clock the meeting was
called to order by Mrs. J. L. Miras,
and the devotions conducted by
Mrs. Lucia Larimer of Johnston,
who by her own consecrated spirit
of service transmitted to the audi
ence an inspiration to more activity
and devotion to duty.
Unions were called upon to tell
of their work since the iMoren-'e
convention last October and the
Loyal Temperance Legion at John
ston sent their response throuirh
their faithful and efficient leader
Mrs. James White who made a very
interesting talk on childhood in
general, and her own Loyal Tem
perance Legion in particular.
A very practical aud convincing
talk was made by Mri. Rainsford,
on "The value of essay contests in
making prohibition sentiment."
This method of agitating questions
of public inter?s: was recognized
many years ago by the W. C. T. U.
and is now being used by many oth"
er organizations as a means of scat
tering information broadcast. The
children of this genet ation are be
ing especially benefitted by the hy
gienic instruction in the public
.schools in reference to the evil of
alcohol and tobacco, and the essays
are but added impetus to investiga
tion, reaching parents, teachers and
Mrs. W. E. Lott read some splen
did facts in reference to the evils of
cigarette smoking, and why they are'
an enemy to the boy. Her informa'
tion was takt'ii from the very best
authority in science and observation
and made it very clear that the boy
of the future will be compelled to
forego tht! cigarette if he really
means to succeed.
Miss Eliza Mims, by special re
quest, sang that favorite sont-, "In
tho secret of his presence." "Why
should we plan for co-operative
meetings?'' was most splendidly
presented by Miss Zena Payne. This
is the department of cooperation,
with missionary societies, and was
convincing evidence of the very
close relationship between the two
christian organizations of women.
Mrs. M. P. Wells gave a most
thrilling reading entitled "(TO feel
what I have felt," written by a
young girl who had been accused
of being a monomaniac on the sub
ject of strong drink.
Mrs. W. H. Cogburn, state su
perintendent of literature, was un
able to be in attendance upon the
meeting but sent a mest excellent
paper, which was read by Mrs. W.
E. Lott, entitled "Sowing temper
ance facts." One fact that she quot
ed was that "Maine never gained 1
her prohibitory law until the state
had |>een sown knee-deep in temper
ance literature.1' She said that tem
perance facts in leaflet form or on
the printed page, while silent mes
sengers can never be discouraged or
rebuked but with gentle persistence
continue to scatter their good work.
At this time Mrs.. VVeeoh was
called upon for the address of the
morninir.Her personality was charm
ing and every word she said was
pertinent with words of wisdom and
inspiration. Evey who came was
I glad to have had this unusual op
portunity of hearing this gifted and
eloquent organizer of the Woman's
Christian Tem pei ance Union.
At the close of the arid ress a num
ber of gentlemen who had come in,
were introduced, and Mr. P. N.
Lott, whom we all knew to be a
great sympathizer and prohibition
advocate,came forward and express
I ed in his gracious manner his grati
fication at having been present.
* At this time the hospitality of
the Trenton ladies was most cor
dially extended, and in the church
all w?re seated and the lunch was
served. If there are any people in
the world who do as little as they
can do, they certainly did not live
at Trenton on this occasion, for the
dinner waa abundant and elaborate
and of superior quality. There was
a salad course, coffee with whipped
cream piled mountain high, and
cake of that peculiar Trenton-Har
rison variety which has never been
At the afternoon service Mrs.
Weech presented the subject of
"The Union Signal," while Mrs. T.
R. Denny of Johnston distributed
sample copies and secured new sub
scriptions. Mrs. Weech also dis
played some beautiful flower mission
verses on cards which she said were
the composition of her mother who
is still living in Washington, D. C.
Mrs. Tillman made a very pleas
ing and effective talk on the "Value
of music in a meeting,'' which was
followed by that inimitable song,
"The perfect day," by Mrs. R. a.
Shannonhouse who has been of such
invaluable aid to the W. C. T. U,
at Edgefield, in the generous use of
her great gift in song.
Mrs. J. L. Mims presented the
Palmetto White Ribbon, and Mrs.
M. P. Wells by special request, gave
that encouraging selection, "The
south is going dry," and received
Much regret was expressed at the
absenc* of Miss Cleo Attaway, who
was detained at her home in Saluda
on account of the death of Mr. W.

the Saluda union and the husband
of the president of the uuion at that

of ladies from Johnston, Edgefield,

The Edgefield visitors who re
mained in Trenton for the evening
ser vise were entertained with Mrs.
J. D. Mathis, M rs. Scott and Mrs.
T. P. Salter, returning home after
the meeting. Mrs. Weech was enter
tained also by Mrs. Mathis and
The evening service opened
promptly at 8 o'clock, Rev. J. R.
Walker conducting the services and
introducing Mrs. Weech, having
veiy kindly come over from Edge
field for that purpose.
The music was very effective,
there being two vocal duets, Prof.
Scott, principal of the Trenton High
School singing with Mr. Vann of
Trenton and later with Mrs. Shan
nonhouse. Miss Moore, one of the
teachers of the High school was or
Mrs. Weech made a very inter,
esting and appealing address, tak
ing as her subject, "Bones," and
making some very practical applica
tion of the use of the wrist hone,
the jaw bone, the huck bone, in or
der to awaken the "dry bones" and
li nally thereby to oller up at last
as a trophy of victory the ' bones"
of king alcohol. The collection
amounted lo about $J2 and as many
