Though it is now Congress- g
man Hobson, it should not be i
forgotten that it was once Hobson, f(
the soldier, and one of the very L
bravest that the world ever knew. I
A. C. Jones of Newberry has 'r
fully met the expectations of T
every one and withrawn from the a
gubernatorial race. Good for
Jones and the people. r
It makes no difference how il
big a fool thing a man may start; t
if for any reason he comes to his I:
senses and pulls out, he at least h
deserves credit for that much. C
So Father Sherman is to be com

his father. 0
If the United States senate
roves itself as much in favor of I
enaturalized alcohol as the
senate of South Carolina has a
proven itself in favor of the
natural stuff in its various forms, i
then there is great hope of cheaper j
fuel and close competition for 1
the Standard Oil Company. d
Fairfield folks will be at the
reunion in Columbia next week
in full force. They just can't
belp going to the Capital city on
these special occasions, and they 3
are pretty good at it at other C
times too, for there are so many I
Fairfield people in Columbia, 3
though not more than in Fairfield 3
as it is sometimes expressed. 3
To-night and to-morrow Winn- c
sboro will have as her guests the 3
veterans of Fairfield county. 1
This community counts it no
small privilege thus to have an V
opportunity of honoring these a
old heroes, who fought so val- h
iantly upon the field of battle c
and have fought no less brave s
fight in redeeming their state c
politically and -industrially.
Durig their brief stay in ourt
midst the town belongs to them.
The town officials and the va
rious committees will count it a
favor for them to make their a
wants known so that their stay
may be made as pleasant as a
posible. Not all of them can
bhere. Would that they could- C
Bul a few have already notified y
the committee that on account h
of the infirmities of age they will g
be detained at home. These few I
we can not welcome in person, 'y
but they may rest assured that si
at their homes they will not be d
forgotten by their old comrades, a
who are more fortunate and that j
in every heart their will beat a c
feeling of sympathy and there d
will go up from all the prayer
that their remaining days may d
be days of peace. Present or ab
et the veteran is not forgotten. c
The Cross of Honor that will be a
pizaned upnn those -who are pres- i
ent by the daughters of their
comrades and will be sent to the s
absent ones to be pinned an, per- t,
haps by her who has bein his
stay upon the field of activities 53
and ministered to him in the 5
time of sickness, will be remind
ers to their sons and to their0
daughters that they were fol
lowers of Lee and of Jackson, t'
of Hampton and of Butler, of
7 Bratton ~and of;Rios, and that as
such no honor is too great for
them while living and that when i
they have crossed over the river
their brave deeds will yet linger
with us as a priceless heritage.
