Martin Luther Buliock was born in
Abbevile county about 18*6 or 1827
and died 'Monday night in Newberry
at the home of his son, Mr. W. W. Bullock,
with whom he had lived for the
past 12 years. The remains were shipped
to Cross Hill Tuesday where the
burial took place on Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Bullock was a well educated
and highly intelligent man and served
several years as county superintendent
of education of Laurens county
in which county he spent the
greater portion of his life. He took
a deep interest in ail public questions j
and having lived in the stirring days j
or' the "40s and '50s when Clay and I
Webster and Calhoun were the shiningi
stars in the nation's political
firmament, he was well informed and
Hsi] n rormm! t-:nr> wof men
iii-d issues of that period which made
di him a very interesting and
entertaining talker.
When the v.ar c? Secession came
3n he enlisted and serve! throughout
:lie four years of the war, fighting for
::ome and n.-tive land, a soldier in rhe
immortal armies cf Dixie.
After tne war Mr. Bullock, like his
Diave comrades, began life ever azain
md strugglesd as courageously in the ,
irmies of peace and industry as ia
laa m me armies 01 aeaia ana destruction.
He was ,a merchant the
greater part of his life.
Mr. Builjjpk is survived by the
following children: Mrs. Addie Hill
)f Laurens, Vrs. W. H. 'Workman of
Clinton; LVTrs. ^Ella Johnston of Clin
:on; M. L. Bulock, Jr., of Tampa,
Fla., T. S. Bullock of Bloosom, Fla.,
md W. W. Bullocic of Newberry.
One of the most pleasant and enjoyable
entertainments of the season
was the social meeting of the "Wesley
Bible Class," on last Friday even
ing at tlie ^home of its teacher, Mrs.
J. W. White.
After the guests had arrived and
assembled themselves in the parlors, j
a;;d library they were called to order !
by the President. Miss Rebecca Wicker.
A piano solo by Miss Ernestine
Wicker marked the beginning of an
interesting and instructive program.
A recitation by.4 little Miss Elizabeth
White,\foilo wed. with a vocal solo by
Miss Mattie Lou Wicker were very
much enjoyed by ail. A vocal duet by
Misses Lizzie and Minnie Salter, and
a piano solo by Miss Georgia Porter
did their part in making the evening
enjoyable. Then the climax was
reached in the cunning dialogue and
recitations by little Misses Elizabeth
Plitt and -Elizabeth 'White. The program
was closed by a piano solo by
Miss Annie Williams.
Then after .pursuing progressive
conversation for some time, cards
distributed and a contest announced.
The "Wear Ever " boys Messrs 0. E. j
Bass and E. E. Kerlong who are dem-;
osstrating ' aluminum utensils here .
offered a pound c>ke and the "Wear j
TT.vor" tv3 n in wTlifh thpv baked it. fcvr I
the most words made from the letters !
in "Wear Ever." The contest lasted
five minutes and the sound of a bell
marked its end.
Aftef enumerating and correcting
the words it was found that Miss
Corrie Lee Havird was the lucky contestant.
She had made twenty-nine
words from the two words "Wear
Ever." Mr. Dibble with a few well
chosen words delivered the cake.
Refreshments were served and conversation
At a late "hour and after a very
pleasant evening the light hearted
guests departed.
