Tuesday, May 22, 1917.
We see it stated in the papers that
all of the county chairmen of the
State except four were present at
tie meeting called by Gov. Manning in
Columbia on April 30. We suppose
this means The Democratic county
chairmen. Wc would like to ask if
these four who were noj present
"were invited to be at the conference.
And who they are. We know at least
one of the four who offered to do
anything that might be in his line to
4o and to cooperate with the governor
who received nc invitation to attend
the conference, but he happened not
to be a supporter of the governor in
his last race. Wonder if that had
anything to do with his failure to re
ceive an invitation to the conference.
As stated in the last issue of The'
Herald and News Mr. and Mrs. Jacob
Luther Aull have been on a visit;
to their son, the editor of The Herald

There are very few there now who
were members of the congregation j

memories of other days.

pathway and shared its joys and its
sorrows, its hopes and its fears, us?
sunsmne ana its snaaowB, ior turee
score years and one, hand in hand to
gether. their children and their chii
dren's children, and their children,
and all their friends and loved ones,
bring gresung on uns me vita auui
versary of their marriage.
A union extending through two gen
erations, and well into the third, lived
in simplicity and love and honor! A
long journey through a country frag
rant with the flowers of happiness be
cause enriched with the usefulness of
service! Truly the God of their fath
ers nas aean geuuy auu mum/
them. And now they sojourn in the
polden land ot the sunset, where ten
cler memories of happy aays pami iue
landscape in the soft purple of twi
light, and in fv faith which knows no
fear they look out upon that vast
ocean >ft-hich bounds it, somewhere in
w hose expanse they se dimly the
"island-valley of Avilion; where falls
not hail, or rain, or any snow, nor
ever wind blows loudly; but it lies
tieep-meadow'd, happy, fair with or
chard lawns and Dowery hollows
crowdn'd with summer st?a."
"U-'hon thr? hictr?rv nf this r_nntinpnt
was in the making, long ere it had
entered the minds of the fathers to
found a republia in the western
world whose fla<* should be for all
men an emblem of liberty, their fore
fathers, in search of political and re
ligious freedom, journeyed here,
across the Atlantic, from a land with
tfvirtcck l^r-o +V>io noHAn ic tiaiv at
war. Nearly 82 years ago, Jacob
Luther Auil was born on the old home
place, in the lower part of Newberry
county. More than 85 years ago,
Julia Haltiwanger first saw the light
in old Edgefield county (now Saluda)
rear where Trinity Lutheran church
points the way. On May 22, 1856, they
were married, and they lived in the
Aull homestead until 1872, when they
moved to their present home in Green
wood county. Their union was made
happy by the birth of seven children,
all of whom are living but one, who
died in infancv. Good health has fal
len to their lot, and today they exem
plify what manner of sweet old age
comes in the declining years of a life
lived simply and well. Born on the(
farm and reared on the farm, they
have remained on the farm, free from (
clamor and grind of thickly populated;
communities, and they have pursued;
the even tenor of their way, in the
fear of God, as taught by the Lutheran
faith handed down to them from the
centuries that are gone, loved by their
ciate Reformed Presbyterian ladies on
Friday evening at the dining room of
the Savoy hotel. About 80 were
present. The following program was
carried out immeditaely after the sup
Toastmaster, B. F. Kaiser, president
of the junior class; "The Class of *17,"
Miss Teressa May-bin; response, 0. B.

st Anniversaryi
Three-Score Years Mr. \
7 Have I rod Lite 's
I neighbors and respected by all who
have known them.
! Descended from a race which in
whose creed labor is holy, the work
of their hands has been g'adsomely
, and zealously done, ana tneir mmus
! and hearts have been kept pure by
; clean living ajd right thinking. They
! are of that sturdy citizenship whose
i onmhinpri efforts have made the na
tion great in resources and have
glorified It with high ideals.
It is fitting that on the anniversary
of their marriage they should have
come among th^ scenes of their young
er years. It is to them a hallowed
lend, which holds the dust or tneir
people of other days; in whose fields,' ^
spreading out before them smiling
and sun-kissed with memories,-stands {
the home where G1 years igo today;
thoy began life together, wiuh hopes *
running high, and with love painting ^
the future a roseate hue; where still <
live many of the friends and near'i
ones of yesteryear. U
And now, it only remains for me to
say that tlie prayer of their children
and their children's children, and
their children, and all their friends
and loved ones, who have brought
this greeting, is that they may be
gpared yet many years of health and
of happiness; and "when the dark:
does comes, that still above the shad-!
ows, will linger God's white thought
for them, to .light to perfect paths." j
And I know that their prayer for!
thedr loved ores todav "is that, thev'
shall know and hold each joy aiid(
hope they long to have?not the wist-!
ful-wished desire that shall come
awhile and tremble in its beauty and
flicker back to emptiness from which1
it came, but that the dreams that God(
has made for them, shall be and linger,
with and bless them. For these are
not the wishes thnt a common world
would give, but the pleading that(
shall always be for them; that shall
abide by them at every corner of their
life that waits. And even along the]
straight, glad-wide stretches of their j
days shall it be above them; in the
dark and drearied ways of shadows,
that, mayhap, shall come again, shall
it hold out its hands for them; and
as its reward shall ask that they be
stayed; that they be upheld by God's
eternal arms; that life's rough step
ping stones be gentle for them," until
that time shall come when, life's jour-j
ney over, they shall reach that land
where they shall "never get tired at
"And only the Master shall'praise us,
And only the Master shall blame,
^.nd no one shall work for money,
And no one shall work for fame,
nut each ror tne joy 01 me aoang,
And each in his separate star,
Shall paint the thing as he sees it,
1- or the God of things as they are."
Prof. Cannon Prof. Derrick, H. G. J
Gotschall, E. K. Bodie, H. W. Boozer,
Van Oxner, R. L. Riser and H. H.
Wyse. The banquet was complete in
every way and was one of the best
in vftara. The hall was neatly deco-1
rated in garnet and black, the senior
class colors, and blue and gray, the,
junior class colors.
