Death of Mrs. Hilton.
Mrs. James G. Hilton died last Fri
day night at her home near Fellow
ship church in this county. This was
the saddest death of the year, as Mrs.
Hilton was in her usual health Friday
morning, had prepared a picnic din
j ner for the family, and Mr. Hilton and
the children had gone, enjoyed the oc
casion and returned, finding ber still
well. But before the shades of the!
evening fell upon the earth the good
wife and mother was stricken and in j
midst ot' the night the precious life
departed. How strikingly troe was
the inspiration of Wilder when he
wrote these lines :
"My life is like the summer rose
That opens to the morning sky,
And ere the shades of eveningclof e
Is scattered on the ground to die."

Sunday morDing with Mr
Walter Gillion as pilot we bead
ed for Wards. After a rather
warm drive of two hours through
a magnificent section of our coun
try we arrived at the pretty little
town of Wards on the Southern
Railroad. We drove at once to the
pleasant home of Capt. Clinton
Ward, whose doors are always
open to strangers as well as to
intimate friends and acquaintances
with that hopitality born of a
typical South Carolina gentry.
Refreshing ourselves with cool
water, and still having a few
moments to spare before church
time, we took a stroll into his
superbly arranged and well kept
gardens and vineyards. The
flower garden bespoke taste and
refinement; the vegetable, thrift
and energy; the vineyard, ease
and luxury. In the latter there
are one hundred varieties from
the sour fox and wild bull to the
delicate flavored malaga, luscious

Services bad commenced when
we got to the church. We found
about as many people outside the
shade of the spreading oaks as
there were in the church. At the
same time the church was full, so
that we had to take a seat on Btep
of rostrum or stand. We preferred
the steps. Rev. Reamy of John
ston preached an excellent mis
sionary sermon from the story of
After the devotional services,
everybody was invited to a splen
did dinner sumad under those
shady oaks. The representative
of The Sentinal was looked after
by the ladies and right royally
did he fare. In the aftenoon the
last subject on the program,
"Which is the better method of
teaching the Sunday Scnool
lesson,' askiog question or .lettiog
the sc?olars?" It. was noted that
the query was worded wrong and
it should have been ''lecturing"
instead of "letting." However
this little error only added to tbe
interest of the debate and tho
speakers all agreed that moio
interest could be created in a
recitation by giving the children
an opportunity to , ask questions.
Mr. S. J. Watson opened with a
neat little speech laden with good
practical suggestions for successful
teaching. Capt. Joe Edwards
introduced Mr. H. S. Cunning-,
ham of Saluda, who made a few
remarks on ?he practical side.
Kev. Reamy, Mr. M. W. Peurifoy
and the Moderator. Mr. P. N.
Lott, made short, but interesting
talks. After a little more routine
business and resolutions of thanks
to these good people for taking
care of them so well during the
convention adjoured. being one of
the best and largest ever hold in
the Union. After a sojourn of a
couple of hours with the genial
captain and his estimable wife,
who, by the way, might bo called
the motb.jr of this church, we
ordered our horse. While waiting,
we were shown many ancient and
valuable relic of the family.
We have often heard the expres

OUR HOSPITAL SHIP.
Tho Solace, our hospital ship,
was a fine steamer of the Morgau
Line, fitted up with 500 spring
beds, and several hundred ham
mocks, medical and surgical stores,
delicate food especially prepared
for the 6ick and wounded,, with
a iot of surgeons and nurses aboard.
It accompanies the war ships as
an angel of mercy. Tho other ships
go out kill and destroy; she to
receive the maimed aud dying.
The Solace is painted white and
green, the most conspicuous colors,
and stands high out of the water,
RO that she can be seen at a long
long distance, while at her mast
heads float the flag of the Red
Cross, which will protect her from
all civilized enemies. This is a
new idea in warfare. In the midst
of a battle she will stand by out of
danger, but within signaling
distance, and when the fighting is
over, the othei ships will deliver
to ber the wounded to be cared
for'and the d<;ad to be prepared
for burial. If a ship of the enemy
is captured or sum*, she will offer
her merciful hospitality to it offi
cers and crew.
