The Rev. P. B. Lanham writes
of the death of Mr. Jacob Floyd
"Mr. Floyd died on the 6th inst,
and was buried at Sweetwater

Baptist Courier: The friends
of Rev. J. S. Jordan, of Phoenix,
S, C., will regret to hear of the
death of his daughter, Mrs, Nannie
Goldsmith, which ocsurred in
Winston-Salem, N. C., on June 4lh.
Mrs, Goldsmith was a young wo
man of rare qual ties of intellect
and soul, and by her amiable, af
eectionate disposition, made many
friends wherever she lived, She
attended school in Greenville,
where she was very popular. Wc

bereaved husband and to Bro. Jor

One day last week George Norris
was given a note by Col mel Jim
Tillman to be carried to his house
ID town for his horse and buggy.
Through some misunderstanding
George carried the note to Senator
Ben Tillman, at Trenton, Beven
miles distant. George walked all
the way aud when he reached the
Senator's house he delivered the
note feeling B?ro that he would
have a nice ride back to Edgefield,
and when he found out his mis
take the air was made sulphurous
with his bad talk, and hitting the
cross ties he kept it up all the way
back to Edgefield.
The startling sensation of last
week was the marriage of Miss
Marion Hill to Mr. Luther Jones,
both the children of old Edgefield.
Without leave or license, this
young couple, after the graduating
exercises on Wedneeday even
ing in the opera house, repaired
to the residence of Rev. Richard
Anderson, rector of the Episcopal
church, whom they selected to tie
the Gordian knot. They doubt
less thought theprecopt of the im
mortal Shakespeare as good as any
they could foliow: "If it were
done when it is done, then it were
well 'twere done quickly." And
if the young people of the future
wil. just get their pnrents' consent
first, and then run away, this is
probably the best way after all. If
it is romance they wish, .his way
is most full of it, if novelty, to this
we must yield the precedent, if
economy, where is a better way ?
If style, they can enjoy that after
ward. It prevents much of the
foolish nonsense which so many
people think is tho necessary ac
companiment of a wedding, and
gives the public a pleasant sensa
tion, and something interesting to
talk about. The public is much
indebted to Mr. and Mrs. Jones for
this abatement of its monotony,
and wishes them all good fortune

Every woman loves to think of the
time when a soft Huie body, all her
%\wn, will nestle in her bosom, fully
satisfying the yearning which lies in
the her.rt of every good woman. But
yet there is a black cloud hovering
about tho pretty picture in her mind
which fills her with terror. The
dread of childbirth takes away much
of the joy of motherhood. And yet it
need rot be so. For sometime tiiere
has been upon the market, well-known
and recommended by physicians, a
which makes childbirth as simple and
easy as nature intended it. It is a
strengthening, penetrating liniment,
which the skin readily absorbs. It
gives the muscles elasticity and vigor,
prevents sore breasts, morning sick
ness and the Joss of the girlish figure.
