Enjoyed the Reunion at Richland.
Editor Keowee Courier:
The county reunion of ex-Confed
erate soldiers at Richland on Friday:
Aug. 12th, was a perfect success and
most enjoyable. Tho good people of
Richland fully sustained their well
deserved reputation for hospita li ?y
and as bountiful providers. Able and
interesting speeches wore delivered

son Smith and Harry R. Hughs. .1. <").
Armstrong and Capt. S. K. Dendy
also made short talks.

to find that our young men aro no

statements and omissions, but aro

between tho North and South in
Resolutions of appreciation and

New Ideas for Summer Curtain??.
Unusual and lovely are the^ win
dow curtains and drapes made from
ginghams, in checks, plaids or
stripes, unbleached muslin, voile,
barred dimity, Japaneso crepe, pop
lin, linen and other materials which
we commonly think of as materials
for dresses and other purposes. They
are Inexpensive and simple to make,
yet the effect ls quite aa pleasing as
if they were mado of the most costly
Unbleached muslin is being usod
In so many lovely ways. Sometimes
it is dyed in some of the soft, dull
shades of rbse, old blue, old gold,
green, wisteria or brown, and deco
rated with embroidery wool. It makes
lovely curtains when ornamented
with Moral designs cut from cretonne,
applique flowers, bands of chintz and !
gingham or animal and bird designs 1
in patchwork for the nursery.
Curtains made from mill-end un
bleached muslin and trimmed with
bias bands and 'triangles of checked
gingham aro very effective. Thc cur
tains are charming and dainty, and
add tho correct touch of color that
makes the all-white kitchen or bath
room a Joy to any woman's heart.
These curtains can easily bo made in j
an hour.
Choose a good piece of mill-end j
muslin li? inches wide, ll costs from |
IO to 12 couts a yard. Split the
muslin down the center and finish
the edge with a tiny hem. Cse an
inch and a half bein for the bottom
of the curtains.
Purchase one-third of a yard of
tho checked gingham material. Cut
the banding on the true bias, one
and one-half Inches wide. Match and
seam. Turn in the edges one-fourth
of an Inch and baste. Sew in posi
tion on the curtains ono and one
half inches from the edge, being
careful to miter the banding at the
corner. Cut the triangles the size
desired from the scraps of gingham
left. Turn in 'the edges and baste.
Stitch these triangles on the curtain
three-fourths of an inch above ?he
gingham bands. Tho triangles ari
may be cut tho same size, or the
center one may be larger. Squares,
circles and diamonds may be used
instead of the triangles, or 'the band
trimming alone makes an effective
trim ming.
(The above very interesting and
useful hints aro taken from "The
Farmer's Wife," issue of August.)

Night-They Were Taking Law Into
Own Hands to Regulate Visitors.
Ton young men of Westminster
were lodged In Jail last Sunday night
on a charge of misdemeanor on the
public highways.
It seems that two or throe young
men of Walhalla went to Westmin
ster to call on young ladies, and it
also seems that thc young men of
Westminster objected to Uhe pro
ceeding. Some time after the Wal
halla boys arrived at their destina
tion-they were called on the phone
and Informed that they must loave In
fifteen minutes, so we are Informed,
or that they would be roughly hand
led. The Walhalla boys did not noe
flt to "beat lt" at the moment, but
instead got Into coniunlcation willi
tho sheriff's office In Walhalla. In
forming the sheriff of what had ta
ken place. The shoriff went over and
awaited developments. When the
Walhalla boys got started homeward,
so tho story is told currently, they
were overtaken on the road very
close to( some say In) Westminster,
und it began to look as if the threats
were to bo made good, but Just then
tho sheriff's car hove in sight, and
3ti investigation he decided to bring
Ibo Westminster boys to Jail with
lilm on a charge of misdemeanor on
the highways. The boys spent tho
night in the Oconeo Jail, and were re
leased Monday morning on bonds ior
their appearance before a magis
trate on September 2d.
lt is quite an unusual sight to see
en well-dressed, gentlemanly young
non Ale out of tho county jail under
escort, and wo hope it will never bo
leen again. Roys, take a lesson from
his Incident, whatever the outcome.
Yow wore thoughtless, and doubtless
/on were totally In tho* wrong. Rut
lowever that may be, learn tho les
ion while it is cheap. Lot tho law
uko care of grievances, if grievances
boro lie - and don't try to tako.lho
aw Into your own hands. There ls
io reason why Ibo young men of tho
wo towns should not be the best of
rlonds, and como and go In tho two
owns ns freely os in their own
lomos. If there ls something back
>f this Incident that needs "cleaning

Richland, Aug. 15.-Speclul: Fri
day, the 12th of August, was a glad
day for Richland in that sho m,ade
merry for the Oconee Camp of Con
federate Veterans. The academy hall,
with late improvements and a fresh
coat of paint, was made ready for
their coming. Tho Stars and Stripes
and Stnrs and iBars wore unfurled
together to decorate tho cosy little
stage. Capt. A. H. Ellison, as presi

as local manager, had charge of the
Tho exercises were opened with
the song, "America,'* hy tho audi
ence, and prayer was offered hy Rev.
J. P. Striating delivered the ad
dress of welcome. Ho opened the
Richland heart enclosed in the Oco
noe mother bosom and assured the
veterans, that this heart, in dimen
sions of love and veneration for them,
is as large as Stump-House Moun
tain, the geographical heart of Oco
nee, and that this Richland heart is
as firmly .and deeply imbedded in tho
doctrine of State's Rights and Seces
sion-the loyal New South- -as tho
Stump-House Mountain is imbedded
in the everlasting hills. On this heart
a placard is stamped bearing tho
word "Welcome," in letters so large
that their age-dimmed eyes could
read without glasses, and the sun
shine and rain of ages would not ef
face or wash off.

young orator, than whom South Car

He touchingly passed in rapid review
many stirring statistics, incidents
and scenes tn Confederate struggles,
and paid many beautiful and deserv
ed tributes to tho soldiers who wore
tho gray.
The "Cillison Stringed Band" gave
