WEDNESDAY, JAN. 20, 1897.
MR. '1. G. LANHAM.
On Friday morning last Mr. T. G.
Lanham, one of Edgefleld's most re
spected citizens, departed this life, to
be no more among the friends and
kindred here, but with those other
friends and loved ones who are dwell
ing :n another land, the one beyond,
where there is "no more pain, neither
sorrow nor sighing." Mr. Lanham
was formerly a resident of the "An
tioch section, and was a member of the
Antioch church, but for some years
has been living in our town, and at
the time of his death belonged to the
Edgefield Baptist church. For many
months he bad suffered as au invalid?
but it was not expected that he would
be so soon taken away. Yet so it seem
ed to be the will of the Almighty and
tender Sovereign, and all things in
His hands are direeted wisely and
"work together for the good of those
who love him." He leaves behind those
who will ever keep his memory in sa
cred trust, his wife, and a son, T. B.
Lanham, and two daughters, Misses
Mary Lou and Minnie Lanham. Their
many friends do not forget their afflic
tion and feel for them-a tender and
earnest sympathy. May their faith in
.the wisdom of their omnipotent guide
give them peace and patience.
JAMES F. GRIFFIN.
James F. Griffin, who died at his
home near our town on last Wednes
day, was the last male member of the
Griffin family in Edgefield county, a
family that stood in the forefront in
the days that are gone, first in good
words and noble deeds. The deceased
was the only son of the la^ Stanmore
B. Griffin, Esq., and the grandson of
Col. Nathan L. Griffin of sainted mem
ory. Everybody liked Jim Griffin and
if he had an enemy in the world it was
himself. His life was a Hfltful fever,"
after it may he sleep well, and awake
in a habitation-a glorious home,
where unalloyed happiness shall be
his forever and forever.
EDWARD PENN PAUL.
Mr. E. P. Paul, who died at his home
in the Antioch section a few days
since, was a son of the late Abner Paul
of our town, was about thirty-three
years of age at the time of his death,
and leaves a wife and one child and
several sisters and brothers who will
?orely miss his genial smile and pres
ence. For the last six or eight years
Mr. Paul had been living in Augusta,
but failing health caused him to re
move to his home in the country,
where he died as above stated. He
was buried at Antioch church. Peace
to his memory !

Spot on the Sun.
Have you seen the big spot on the
sun? Here's the latest in regard t(
the phenomenon: "A peculiar hazi
ness of the atmosphere in St. Lou ii
last Friday made it possible for ob'
servers to see the new and big spoi
on the sun with the naked eye. Prof
H. S. Pritchett, of Washington Uni<
versify, measured the spot, and said il
was 27,040 miles long and 9,.r>00 mile?
wide. The next largest one ls 9,10(
miles long and 4,070 miles wide, and
there is quite a flock of others, from
500 to 1,000 miles in diameter, strung
along like a sort of tail to the big one
The entire disturbed area is about 08,
0i>0 miles long and 40,000 miles wide,
The main spot, it will be noted, would
cover just three worlds the size of ours.''
Here at Edgefield we can see this spot
through a smoked glass.

School Commissioner Nicholson
requests us to say that the delay
in making and publishing the

can get the necessary information,
perhaps next week.

throat of a child make the room
close, ther. take a tin cup ahd pour
inio it a quantity of tar and tur
pentine, equal parts. Then hold
the cup over a fire, so as to fill
the room with fumes. The little
patient on inhaling the fumes will
cough up and spit out all the
membraneous matter, and the
diphtheria will pass off. Tho
fumes of the tar and turpentine
losen the matter in the throat and
thus afford the relief that has
baffled the skill of physicians,"
