! ENGAGEMENT OF MISS j
GEORGE ANNOUNCED '
Mr and Mrs Samuel B George of ! J
Lexington, a few days ago, announced j
: the engagement of their daughter,
Miss Celeste, to Mr Henry Weinges, ,
! of St Matthews,
? rw> f * I
j The wedding, one of the most bril- j
I liant and interesting ever held in j
Lexington, will be solemnized the ! _
latter part of June. 111
No announcement in recent years !
has occasioned more widespread and ,
j sincere congratulatons. Miss George
| is not only a young woman of supreme j
j beauty and personal charms, but she j ?
possesses many unusual literary at-i
tainments and is a social favorite;
wherever she is known. She is an j
honor graduate of Columbia college;
of the class of 1917; and it is but fit-'
ting that her marriage should follow ^
upon the first anniversary of her grad j
Mr. Weinges is a prominent young'
business man of Saint Matthews, and|
is equally as popular as is his charm- j
ing young bride-elect.
! SAMMIE GARDNER i Ja
WRITES LETTER TO MOTHER j
| Sammie Gardner, son of Mr. and;
j Mrs. L. W. Gardner, of Pelion, who j
is now stationed at Newport, Rhode | ^
Island, in the United States Navy, j
wrote an interesting letter to his mo- j
ther on "Mother's Day" and we takei
pleasure in giving it space.
Sammie Gardner was a student at j
Wofford College when he answered
the call of his country, being a member
of the senior class. Though unj
able to attend commencement and1
receive his diploma, the college per-j
mitted him to be among the list of j
j ^lavuuaico, mo iia? uccii
| forw&ded to him.
Hje! letter to his mother follows:
^.Newport, R. I. May 12, 1918.
My Dear Mother;
> Today being Mother's Day I can-j
not let it pass without writing you a:
letter. You are the very best friend ;
I have on earth and it gives me great' -n
joy to be entitled to wear a red rose, j
even, tho I happen to be deprived ofj
j the roses as well as being deprived of I
j your presence. Many boys have lost
j their best friend?their mother but ^
! I am so thankful that mine is still 1
! spared, even tho dutv calls me man- \z
miles from you. I know that no mr ^
| ther where I may go your prayers and
j love follows me, and many times " B
j may go wrong, but for this great |
i force which pulls me toward the right
' way, and to high principles.
I Few people know how much the
j love of ones friends at home and es!
pecially mother counts far to one
! far from home. Don't ever think I
j will get far enough from you and my j
; other folk to still love you. I never
knew before I left just how dear you
! were to me, but as I am separated
1 from you farther from time to time
the more I realize how dear to my
heart you are. It has been and shall
! be my desire and aim to do nothing
that would bring shame on you. In .
; the other hand I like to do the things j
that would please you. I admit tho! .
! that I have, and shall do, things prob-1
ably that would not exactly meet with ;
your approval, for if I did I would be j ,Q
an ideal lad and don't claim to be j
such. | p,
I am as ever your loving son.
Sammie Gardner. ! .
