Wednesday, November 28, 1906.
Thanksgiving tomorrow and all
places of business closed.
Thanksgiving is a -ime for giv
ing thanks. There is no better way
of giving thanks than bylbelping
others. 1'bere are no others
more deserving of help than the
orphans. The contributions that
are being asked for the various
orphanages of the state should be
forthcoming. Times are never
too hard for helping on the good
work of making for better citi
zens in the coming years. That
is the work of the orphanages and
in this work there should be the
hearty co-operation of the people
throughout the State. If there
are any in this section who think
that the crops have not been such
this year as to make this a time
of Thanksgiving, they should re
member that even with them the
crops are far better than they are
with their neighbors not a hun
dred miles away in their own
State. Then too, things are nev
er so bad that they might not be
worse and this of itself should be
the occasion of thanksgiving to
everyone, in whose heart is em
bedded gratitude to the giver of
every good and perfect gift :or
every blessing that comes to
It was not our good fortune to
have more than a passing ac
quaintance with Paul M. Brice,
who passed away at the home of
his father here last Wednesday
morning. His close editorial
work necessitated his being con
tinuously at his post, and so he
was best known to those whose
work was along with him in
Columbia, where most of his
work was done. We never heard
him spoken of in any other way
than of the deepest appreciation
on the part of those who knlew
him best. We regret that we did
not have the privilege of com4ing
under the spell of his own re
markable personality, especially
since we know from his coJlaborers
what a brother he was to them.
The tributes< that have been
paid him by his newspaper
friends throughout the State have
been of the very highest order
and it is an honor to the town of
Winnsboro to have produced one
who by his personal character has
won such a strong coterie o f
friends among . his newspaper
workers and who has stood for
such high journalism in his long
career as a newspaper man.
His friends testify that there was
nothing little in him and this
statement is most forcibly sustain
ed by his editorial writings and
'in all his correspondence. Im
partiality and fairness were the
key notes to .his success in his
chosen field. 'Moze; te had a pen
-- from which flowed the purest of
English and there was a charm
about his style that was exceed
ingly taking'and attractive. No
editor in South Carolina write
better English and had a more
fascinating way of putting what
he had to say than the late editor
of the Columbia Record. That
he possessed physical courage in
the highest and largest measure
is most fully attested in t h e
heroic fight that he put up for
life and the way he continued
to work despite the fact that he
knew the end was so rapidly
approaching. A less heroic man
would have given up long since.
Death took a true hero when it

Paul McDonald Brice dieI at
2 o'clock Wednesday morning at
the home of his father, Mr. J. A.
Brice. He was cut down in the
prime of his life, being only 42
years old. Paul Brice was bo n
February 14, 1864, at this pla ce.
He was the son of James A. Bice
and Josephine McDonald a n d
received his early education at
Mt. Zion Institute. After com
pleting the course there he went
to Erskine College, Due WEst,

with high honors. He then took
a two-years post-graduate con se

After completing his education

School at Columbia and after
wards in Mt. Zion Institute. He

gan his chosen profession With
The News and Herald, then undeir
the editorship of Mr. J. Q. Davis.
After several years with The
News and Herald he went t o
Columbia in 1888 and accepted n
position with the Columbia
Record and, after a success:ul
career with them, went to Charles
ton in the capacity of reporter nu
The Charleston World. In 1891
he went to Savannah and was a
reporter on the Morning News.
In 1894 he returned to Columbia
and was telegraph editor of The
Columbia Register. In 1898, he
accepted a position with t h e
Daily Record and was afterwards
promoted to editor of that paper
which position he held almost
until his death. Only a few days
before his death he returned to
his old home here to die. He
had been told by his physicians
that his death was a matter of
only a few days. On last Tues
day morning, after exhibiti'g
heroic courage in all his intense
suffering, his "spirit passed over
the river and rested in the shade
of the trees."
The funeral services' were held
at the A. R. P., church Thursday
morning - in the presence of a
large concourse of sorrowing
friends. Rev. C. E. McDonald
conducted the funeral services,
which were simple, and without
eulogizing, as were the wishes of
the deceased. The remains were
laid to rest in the A. R. P. ceme
tery beside those of his mother.
Paul Brice was one of the many
men sent out from Winnsboro
who have risen high in the world,
and he was not by far the least.
As a newspaper man he ranked
among the first in South Carolina.
As a citizen he was a criterion.
Pluck and honesty were the main
supports in his make-up.
Many beautiful flowers were
p laced on his grave by those who
knew him but to love him. As

nah News and an old colleague
of Paul's voice the sentiments of
all his friends when he said,
"God will rest his soul as that

Sion's New Pastor.
When it was learned at Man
aing that Rev. M. J. Holladay
had accepted a call to Sion
church at Winnsboro, the follow
ing resolutions were adopted:
Whereas our pastor, Rev. J. M.
Holladay, has been called to
another field, which call after
prayerful consideration, he has
seen fit to accept; and whereas
he has requested this church to
unite with him in a request to
Harmony Presbytery to dissolve
the pastorial relation: Now,
therefore be it
Resolved, 1. That it is with
sincere regret that we feel com
pelled to accept this resignation
and unite with our pastor in a
request to Presbytery to dissolve
the pastorial relation. -
2. That we desire to hereby
express our deep appreciation for
the earnest and faithful labors of
our pastor for the upbuilding of
our church, and the advancement
of our Master's cause in this
community since his connection }
with our church, and especially
for his untiring efforts whichl
made possible the' erection of
this building, its completion be
ing a monument to his zeal and
fidelity in our behalf.
.3. That we pray God's richest
blessing upon the work of our
pastor and his family in his new

Fortune Park Heights.
The Fairfield Land Company
has been granted a charter. Its
capital stock is $5,000, divided
into 50 sharses of $100 each.
Its officers are Jno. H. McMaster,
president; L. E. Owens, vice
president; J. Frank Fooshe,
secretary and treasurer. As
stabed last week this company has
bought all the land in the north
ern part of the town, lying be
tween the Park and Vandrhorst
street, which is to be extended.
This land has been surveyed by
Mr. H. H. White of Rock Hill
and laid off into lots. There are
25 lots containing one half acre
or more. Vanderhorst street will
be extended. A street will be
opened by the Park and another
street will connecti these two
streets. This is a beautiful pro
prty and its opening will give a
great impetus to the building of
homes in* Winnsboro.' There is
a large force of hands at work
now opening these streets and
putting the lots in good shape.
The promotern of this suburban
property will spend a consider
able sum ou the same before they
put it upon the market. A big
auction sale will be arranged for.
at an early date and the terms
upon which these lots will be
sold will be so easy that it will
be so that any one can buy a lot.
The property will bear t Ih e
name Fortune Park Heights, be
cause of its nearness to the Park
and its high location with fine
drainage, which makes it a beauti
ful location and insures the .best
possible sanitation. The north
ern part of the town is a most
desirable residence section and it
is pretty certain that most of the
buildings in Winnsboro for the
next few years will have to be
in this section. This is an
opportunity to buy a lot here.
