MISS ALICE DURISOE.
Miss Alice Durisoe is no more.
She bad lived in Edgefield allh.r
life, and has been exteemed by ail
our people for her Christian graces
of character, and her sociable dis
position, thus making friends in
?Hs world-but her best friend
was the Saviour, whom for mau /
years she had loved and served,
"and whom she glorified in ber
death, and sufferings, for during
the one hundred and twenty days
and nights of her illness, she made
uo murmurings or complaints
against the afflicting providence of
ber divino friend. Through it all,
ehe was -patient and. trusting,
knowing that "all thiugs work to
gether for good, to them tnat love
God." The tears we shed, the suf
ferings we endure, the wound that
is forever reopening within us as
we think of those we have lost,
may well be only the conditions
imposed by a superior will upon
our future happiness.
The tomb that closes o'er the dead
Opens the tirmament,
And that which we below assume to
be the end,
Is only the beginning.
Miss Alice left behind many
friends and near relatives, but
those most near are : Mr. Roper
Durisoe, of our town, Mrs. Shealy,
of Batesburg, Mrs. jBteve Holland,
of Trenton, Mr. John Durisoe, of
Washington, D. C.. and Mr. T. P.

ones the community extend their

There is no school unless the father,
the mother, the teacher, and the pupil
keep school together. The old fashion
used to be that when a child was
punished at school, he got another

Mr. Sossaman engineer in chief of

There is one characteristic of men
seeking cheap notoriety that is
disgusting to every body-that is
a disposition to disparage and
criticise the deeds of men of real
. ability. Any one going to any kind

j is trying to capture the belief (ha!

j S.C. audience. Yoi when he lecturec
i in Newborn* and Prosperity a few
weeks ago one R. P. F. writing tc
the Greenville News compared
the leoture to all kinds of dry.dead.
and out-of-date things. Now a
thing like R.P.F. who sets himself
counter to cultivated public opin
ion, thinking thereby to gain the
laurel chaplet of genius for his
shelling head, I emphatically say
is a nuisance and compared with
which the "New woman" is an
angel of light.
I see that the Saluda
Sentinal and Ne-.'vierry paper are
having a friendly tilt about the
questens of ferries and steel .'bri
dges. The Newberry papers say
the eagerness of their merchants
for free transit over Saluda river
is in no degree traceable to the
! fact of our attaining new county
hood and building up (he town of
Saluda. Now it is strange, passing
strange that we Saluda people have
been paying ferriage for years and
yer.rs without one ray of hope io
cheer our darkening paths, until
ihn town of Saluda began to build
up-then suddenly our way was
Hooded with gentle beams from
those dear business men of New
berry, who then began to talk
about the burdensomeness of fer
I i age.
The grim reaper has plied
bis "sickle keen" in our midsl
with fearful rapidity in the last
few months. Mr Robert Willis, ono
of our best known young men, has
passed from the glttering uurelitea j
of earth into the peaceful realms
of bliss. Tritely we are on the?l
brink of the grave every day. If|
life is short, how infinitely shorter
is our memory afler we are dead.
The good man dies and no one
layeth it to heart." If anyone "is
cherishing the hope of being
thought pf after death ;t is a
delusion. Our dear ones will weep
for awhile, but little by little
the '.urea of life will erase
our images from their minds.
Hut fame is not tho true object of
life-it is duty-loyally to the
better part of ones nature. Well
has Avon's Bard/-fancy's sweetest,
child uttered this sentiment .First
of all,to thine own self be true,
and thou canst not then be false
to any mau." May the oil of heal
ing be poured upon the many
bleeding hearts yeaning for loved
ones "beyond the Silver tide.
Soup of Fruits.
Fruit soups, says Miss Anna
Barrows, are appetizing and health
ful, and common m foreign coun
ties, particularly S-?veden. For one
of lhe.se Boups take ono table
spoonful of raisins, two table
spoonful of raw rice, three whole
cloves, and.a cupful of dried ap
ricots, the apricots being thorough
ly soaked. Cook the ingredients
together in three pints of water for
an hour and rub I brough a sieve.
Add half a tespoonful of salt and
a tablespoonful of sugar. The
seas? ning depends largely upon
the acidity of the fruit, apples re
quiring more sug.ii* than apricots.
Timeservers exist in every lin-'
of business and perfunctory sei vice

to do good work. The mau who

When Columbus discovered America,
he found tho Indiana carrying f,? b ade
from tribe to tribe with wampum. Any
thing that has valuo may bo u?od RP
money. Ina cient Syracuse and Britain
tin was used as money, and we Hud ri:at
iron was so used at one time in Sparta,
pieces of silk in China, calilo in Ro ne
and Germany, leather among the Car
thaginians, ni. is in Scotland, lead i:i
Burma, platinum in Russia, cubes of
pressed tea in Tartary, slaves among thc
Anglo-Saxon?, salt in Abyssinia, otc.
Wampum is fi om an Algonquin word
meaning "white." The Indians have
ewr been fond of ornaments, partiru
larly of beads. They used to make beads
of seashells in tho following way: A
fragment of stone was with nreoh rare
"worked down" to the size of a small
nail, having one end quite pointed, and
it was then fastened to a piece of cane
or a reed. With this simple tool tfcw In
dian workman cdnjincd^ff_a^itj?fthe
insicl?Tof. a conch, shell or a part oi the
6hell of a hard clam and rubbed it down
to the size desired. This bit of ebel! he
held in his hand, placed the sharp end
of the stone against it and then tumi d
the stone around and around until a
hole was drilled entirely through thc
The shell beads thus tediously manu
factured were called wampum. Those
beads were either white or of a purple
color, tho last being valued much higher
than thc first. It was the very laboi ii
way. of making wambuin that paye it
value. The wampum was artistically
strang upon hempen threads and used
as necklaces, bracelets and rings. Often
it was woven into belts about 3 inches
in width and 2 feet in length.
The wampum "belt served many pur
poses. It was sent from tribe to tribe
with solemn promises and messages, it
was used in making peace, masking for
aid in time of war, for personal adorn
ment and also as a "circulating medi
um. " Tho coa::t tribe Indians were tho
wampara makers. The interior Indians
spent their time hunting ami excha:
game of all kinds for tho wampum mado
by tho coast tribes.
For a long timo after white pi opio
had settled in the new world small
coins were scarce and wampum was
used as "change." Finally the "pale
faces" set up lathes by treadles for tin
parposo of making wampum quickly,
and soon the Indian wampum makers
were, as we say nowadays, "cut of a
job. "-Philadelphia Times.
