Death of Thus. Lake, Esq.
This estimable and honored citizen,
the only son of the late Dr. Thomas Lake,
died athis home near Fellowship Church,
of which he was a deacon, one day last
week. He was buried at Fellowship.
His sister, Mrs Cely, of Greenville, had
died only a few days previously.
Two Aged Sisters Die In the Selfsame
Miss Lucy Whatley and Miss Asia
Whatley, two maiden ladies, sisters, died,
at their home, one mile from Republican
Church, on Friday last. One was aged
about ninety-two years, the other about
ninety. They wero both sick, but one
noi. very much so. The latter asked the
Rev. J. P. Mealing, who was with them
how her sister was. He replied : " She
is quiet now." Raisins: herself up in
the bed, the living sister looked across
the room, and seeing a sheet drawn over
the lace of the dead one, immediately
yielded np her spirit to God. This is
very touching. These two aged sisters
were pious members of the Bap .?st
Petit Jurara for October Term, 1?84.

Magnificent Farm and Homestead fur
One hundred and twenty-five acres

with orchards of peach and apple, and
vineyards of " White Niagaras." Wita

It always seems to u? profoundly use
less to exalt the horn of Wm. Mulhorin
in Edgefieid. Because, forsooth, that
horn can rise no higher. As a boy, Wm.
Mulberin began his career in Augustin
1854, and with the exception of the peri
od from 18G1 to 18C5, spent in the South
ern army, he has been identified with
the Shoe business of Augusta, and
been shoeing two-thirds of the people of
Edgefield County. His two partners,
Messrs. A. J. Gouley and P. H. Rice are
men also well known to these, " two
thirds," and honored by them. They
have two stores, up town and midway
the city. Both stores handle all glades
of boots, shoes and slippers, also ?ente,'
boys' and children's hats. And now. as
announced in another column of this
week's ADVERTISER, Mulherin ?fc Co.
are " on the narrow gauge track." Read
them. Stud them well-and rejoice !
An Honored Landmark iu Graniteville.
For many years "James E. Cork's"
was the most honored landmark of Gran
iteville. And now, as "James L. Quinby
<fc Co's.," it is equally prominent, equal
ly enterprising, equally reliable. Indeed
Quinby <fe Co. carry on a business scarce
ly second to any even in Augusta. Their
patrons believe in them heartily, and
they have every right to do so. They
invariably meet with courtesy and atten
tion at Quinby's, and have long since
come to know that tho goods they buy
there are always just as represented.
There In much satisfaction in doaling
with such an establishment as Quinby's,
and it is not strange that their bini ness
increases steadily from year to yea: For
the new card from Quinby & Co., in an
other column, we beg special attention.

The Culminating Point.
Signally, brilliantly successful have been
the Dime Readings inaugurated by the
Baptist ladies early last spring. Interest
in them has never waned ; and truly they
have been powerful literary and musical
motors in our community. The last one-at
the residence of Mr. Alvin Hart-on Friday
evening of last week, was emphatically
the culminating point in the series-the
mo6t numerously attended, the brightest,
the most fashionable, tue most artistic,
the most panning-out. Was this becauEe
it was in the bower of the gallantest, most
generous; most popular young bachelor :n

by a fair lady whose beauty and grace
lend a halo to everything upon which she
lays her dainty hand or turne her beam

Criminal Business ot the Coming Terni.
In our jail at present there are but
seven prisoners. One of these is serving
out a term. The other six, two w. men
and four men. all colored, are awaiting
trial at the coming term. The charges
against them range from murder to
chicken-stealing. But notwithstanding
thia small jail contingent, our criminal
business in October will bo heavy, inas
much as at the last term not a single case
was tried in which the accused was out
upon bond. For instance, the important
case of the State against Washington,
James and Perry Hamilton, will come to
trial during the first week, as will also
the important case of the State against
Wm. Glenn. Besides these, there are
numerous other accused parties out upon
bond, in fact almost too numerous to men

bo heavy. Judge Wallace, of Union, will
