Looper Famil
A great day at Mr. Joseph Loop
ex's, near Mt. Carmel Baptist
church, August 1 7th. It was his
76th birthday. His children, with
out his knowledge, had arranged to
surprise their father by bringing in
dinner and inviting his kinspeople
and a few friends to enjoy the oc
casion with them. A long table was
spread under the shade trees in the
yard and in good old country style
a hundred and fourteen gathered
around and did full justice to the ex
cellent dinner. After dinner Mr. J.
Adger ?mith, the photographer of
Easley, made pictures of the group.
This being over the people were call
ed together' in the house and around
the piazza and divine services were
held. Singing, led by Argus Looper,
joined in by the great throng, read
ing of the Scriptures by Rev, D., W.
Hiott and' prayer by Rev. B. P.,
Mitchell, both of whom made short
talks. Mr. Mitchell and Hiott were
both former pastors of Brother I
Looper's church at Mt.. darmel.
Rev. Ben G. Field, son-in-law of Mr.
Looper, offered the closing prayer.
Not many dry eyes were seen after
the services were over and the crowd
dispersed, each going to their own
