WkEKLY NEWS LETTER
FROM WINNSBORO MILLS
An old land mark is passing out
of existence at the mill. The old two
story brick building used so long for
offices, store, lodge rooms and pic
ture hall is being demolished this
week. The building has been stand
ing for many years. The brick and
other materials show effects of long
exposure. Decay has found its place
there as it finds its place in every
physical and material realm.
The old building has bowed to the
inevitable and come to its end. Not
however until it has served a career
of usefullness. It has gone the way
6f all the earth. As this old build
ing has gone so must all things ma
terial and physical go. One thing re
mains, and that is a memory. The
building had a character-a material
personality-and in a few days, only
that will remain. It reminds us that
in a few dags this physical building
also must gd the way of all the earth

ashes to ashes", and only one thing

eviiably to all men-an end must
come. The bricks and motor and

be dismanteled and shall crumble into
dust. But the sould of that building,

its reward.' We believe that rewards
