Vote Next Tuesday
The men and women of Edge
field county who enrolled for the
primary election should vote in the
second primary next Tuesday. In
stead of about 1,800 votes being
cast, at least 2,100 votes should be
.cast in the second primary election.
Those who remain away from the
polls are slackers in the highest de
cree. Voting is a duty that every one
m '.should perform who is entitled to
cast a ballot. Vote for the best men.
The men whom we put in office de
termine very largely the kind of gov
ernment w*e shall have. If you would
.have a good government, vote for the
best and strongest men. Vote for
right-thinking men. "When the wick
ed rule the people mourn."
Not only vote yourself ' but see.
that your neighbor votes also. Let
Edgefield county turn out en masse,
every man and every woman whose
name is on the club rolls, and cast
their ballots for the BEST MEN
from the highest to the lowest of
Delightful Family Reunion.
Monday was an exceedingly happy
day for Mrs. Jane Harling. Greatly
. to her surprise her children had ar
ranged to celebrate her 76th. birth
day with an elaborate dinner at the
borne of Mr. and Mrs. L. H. Harling.
Some time before noon Mrs. Har
ling's children, grand children, Rev.
and Mrs. A. T. Allen and a few other
friends gathered at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Harling to participate in
the pleasures of the occasion. Each
family represented provided a bas
ket of dinner ' and about noon a
great feast was spread picnic style
?n a long table under the trees in
the yard and all present were invited
out to partake of the princely feast.
In the centre of a small table was the
beautiful birthday cake upon which
.were placed 76 lighted tapers, one
for each year of Mrs. Harling's long
well spent life. She was seated at the
head of this table and next to her
sat Mr. and Mrs. Allen and other
The writer has attended many fes
tive occasions in Edgefield county at
private homes and on public occa
sions but never before have we seen
or partaken of such an elaborate
menu. Ham, fried chicken,, baked
chicken, chicken pie, chicken salad,
hash, pork, potato chips, potato sal
ad, corn, tomatoes, half dozen kinds
of pickle, sandwiches, biscuits, pound
cake, layer cake of several kinds,
pies of every conceivable kind, sliced
pineapple and iced tea.
This is only a partial list of elab
orate menu. One was impressed, too, .
with the bountiful supply and the
faultless manner in which the various
dishes were prepared and served. It
stands at the top of the list. No other
birthday occasion in Edgefield coun
ty can approach this one.
Just as all were ready to leave '
the table Rev. A. T. Allen arose and
gave expression to beautiful and fit- [
ting words in which he exalted moth- '
er hood and also spoke beautifully (
of this unique occasion. Mr. Allen !
"was followed by Mr. L. W. Cheatham
.and Mr. J. L. Mim?*, both of whom
On a table under the trees were
placed flowers and other tokens for
Mrs. Harling from her children and 1
Although she is nearing the four- !
score mile post along the highway of
life, IVJErs. Harling is wonderfully J
strong and active in both body and
mind. As her children, grand child- 1
ren, great grand children and friends i
gathered about her Monday and i
showered her with affectionate at- I
tentions her countenance was ra- i
?liant with happiness and no one en- i
joyed this red letter day more than
she did. Mrs. Harling's four sous, Os
car Harling, W. H. Earling, J. P.
.Harling and L. H. Harling and her
four daughters, Mrs. W. T. Reel,
Mrs. M. H. Deal, Mrs. J. L. Prince

were present, are an honor to her.
