Edgefield'e soci* ty is composed
of several circles or sete. . Tbera is
the young set, the younger set and
the youngest set. and it is reported
that the latter is preparing for a
grand Christmas ball in the opera
house. Would it not be well foi
the nurses as well as the chape
rones to att?nd to take care of some
of these very young ladies ?
The brick layers have passed the
first story on the Tompkins build
ing and unless unfavorab.e wpatber
retards their progress the second
story will be completed iu a very
short time. The .wails of this
buildirg are very thick and the
timbers very massive, and it will
require a considerable earthquake
to crumble it.
Mr. J. H. Bouknight, the presi
dent of tho Bank of Johnston, was.
in Edgefield on Monday- attending
to iundry business matters. Mr.
Bouknight * says that collections
have beeu exceedingly good this

Let us not forget the inmates of
the county home. For several
years'the ladies of our town have
prepared at. Christmas a feat>t of
nice things for these aged and
feeble ones who are not blessed
with this world's goods. Who will
take the. matter .up?. - Would it
not be well for a committee of
ladies to be appointed from each
church and then kt these several
committees come and solicit con
tributions for this Christmas gift
to these poor people. Heretofore
the pe?ple' generally have given
generously .and gladly to this cause
and we are confident that.this year
will prove to. bs-no exception.

Mrs. Sallie Leigh Thompson, the
mother of the late Mrs. Carroll

her age on Wednesday evening last
Sire; wau a resident of Hampton,
but at the time of her death was
witb ber daughter. Miss Addie
Thompson, at the late home of thu
lamentedTjarroll Rainsford. Mrs.
Thompson was a kind, gentle, sweet
spirited Christian woman who was
the very*hp?rt and soul of culture.
She was a typical representative of
the *'low country" pioneer families
whose t ADDRB for generations have
been synonyms for genuine culture
and refinement. This long life,
had nt t* been devoted to serving
the gods of earth but the affections
of this good . lady bed been, fixed
upon things heavenly and now she ,
has gone to receive the crown which ?
awaits those who love and serve
Him. Mrs. Thompson was a rae.n- |

having joined iii Savannah in her ,

Death of Mrs,. Carr Williams.
-The friends and loved ones had ?
tenderly watched at the bedside of '
Mrs. Carr Williams throughout the <
long days and night* ->f the three <
months of her illues . d the fact 1
that she had, thro- thnaid of
the best medical-sk resisted the
ravages, of that dread disease, ty
phoid fever, for so long a time led
them to hope and tn lieve that she
w?uid finally gain' the mastery.
Not so, however. Heaven had de- 1
creed otherwise. Owing to certain
unforseen complications Mrs. Wil
liams grew suddenly w?rse ?nd not .
having the strength to offer fur
ther resistance passed away early
Monday mornitg. This death is
peculiarly sad and, as we view it '
with dur-finite visionfit seems very ?
uucimely, leaving six bright and
promising children ..who will not [
longer have a mother's love and .
kisses bestowed upoir them. Io ail !
things, however, we must trust
Him, the AlUwise Ruler of the
universe. He nae a great plan
which when worked out will oe
for the best, and while we cannot
see the' wisdom of it pow we shall
see at that day.
