A Tragic Death.
So rapidly uow-a-days does all
intelligence or news, especially
that of a startliugor tragic nature,
spreads, that doubtless all of our
readers have learned of the death
of Mr. T. B. Bailey which resul
ted from a fail from a tree on Wed
nesday afternoon last while squir
rel hunting with Borne friends in
the Horn's Creek section. Hie
sudden demise wat a great shock
to nie friends, who when they
last beheld him looked to be cer
tain of an earthly sojourn of
man's allotment, three score and
ten years. Mr. Bailey was one 01
the leading and most prominent
citizens of the southwestern por
tion of our county. He married
Miss Sallie Tillman, a daughter
of the lamented George D. Till
man, who preceded him to the
other shore several years ago.
The three bright little children
who ar? the only surviving mem
bors of the family will be cared
for by their grand-mother, Mrs
Geoege D. Tillman.
The remains were interred with
Masonic honors on Friday within
the Clark's Hill cemetery,' the

friend of the family officiating ai
?'After the Carnival is Over".
On Salurdav night the carnival
company "folded its tents like
the Arabs and silently stole away".
And, gentlemen of the town coun
cil, we add our voice to that of
the overwhelming majority of
Edgefield's citizenship, beseech
ing and imploring you never
again, for the snkeof (he business,
educational, moral and religious
interests of this community to
vot?1 to allow carnivals to come
co our town. If the balance in
your treasury gets h w and you
need the license that a carnival
would pay, it would be to the in
terest of the farmers, merchants,
housewives and pations of the
schools, to come to your rescue,
relieving your embarrassment in
order to keep out carnivals. It is
'.he consensus ofopiuion wherever
they have been that they are busi
ness and town killers. Instead of
our merchants needing extra
clerks last week to serve the large
crowds that were in town their
regular forces were idle a great
portion of the time._ .

SHEET IRON STOVES,
Extracts From an Interesting:
; Several days ago tba writer re
ceived an exceedingly interesting
letter from Rev. John Lake who
is now a missionary OJ China's
soil. Being unable for lack of space,
which we deeply regret, to pub
lish the letter iu full, we publish
the following extracts from it that
will interest our readers:
"It was a great. pleasure on step
ping ashore in China for the first
time, at Shanghai, to clat-p the
hand of a former neighbor and a
valued friend, who was the first
foreigu missionary, I suppose, to
go out from Edgefield-Miss Jun'j
Nicholsou. I find that she is in
charge of the McTyeire school, a
large and flourishing college for
Chinese girls of the upper class.
I had the pleasure of dining with
ber-and of spending some time
talking of you friends in the old
town and county so dear to ns.
How many Edgefield men and
women who have lived for self
aud for tho world, have found
nothing but disappointment, while
chis splei.d:d Christian girl has
made the heroic sacrifice that she
ha3, and 1 ??aw abundaut evidence
that iu this giving all, she has
received au abundant reward.
What will I he reward be when, up
yonder, the Master shall place
upon ber jrow the missionary
"Aud oh, the heroic meu and
women we aaye met while over
here 1 Misunderstood often, not
only by the natives, but by the
people in the homelaud, they have
toiled on and will toil ou, until
they are called up higher. What
a privilege to come and put one
more shoulder to the wheel."
"Well whenever you work in
your vegetable or flower garden,
over there, ;hinkof mo down h-^re,
just below you ! We are still neigh
bors, next c.oor neighbors indeed,
for your lot goes to the centre, of
the eartb,Ja jd so will the one I live
on. That viii make the lots meet
