Smith Greater Shows.
The Smith aggregation of shows
will pitch their tents in Edgefield
on Monday next and will remain
throughout the entire week. The
Smith shows are coming under the
auspices of the Edgefield chapter
of the Daughters of the Confedera

ed whereby that organization is to
receive a certain-? per cent of the
earnings while in town. The
"Daughters" request the co-opera
tion of the veterans throughout the !
county in making their undertaking |
a financial succ?ss. Mr. Smith's
show gave an ^exhibition in our
town one week daring' January of
last year, leaving a very favorable
impression behind. In fact, this at- ]
traction is one of the few aggrega
tions on the road that receives
favorable notices frbm the press,
most of them being conrajmned.
Every part of the show is said to
be high-class, nothing obscene or
questionable being . tolerated. The
manager has told the mayor he
could revoke the license if any ob
jectionable feature could be found
in the entire aggregation.

Death of Major S. S. Tompkins.
Major S. S. Tompkins died.atlii?'ies
idence in Columbia Thursday \n?gn$
January 28, and his remains "were1 in
terred in the Edgefield cemetery Sat
Maj. Tompkins was the oldest surviv
ing member of 'the Tompkins family,
who were among the earliest settlers
of our county and who have had a prom
inent part in making, its history. He
resided here until about 18 years ago,
when he moved his family to Columbia.
Maj. Tompkins possessed ?strong, vig
orous mina and a robust body, eyen al
most to the end, . It/Cau hardly be said
that he was ill at all. He complained
of being unwell for several days and
gradually grew weaker until ? the end,
life becoming extinct just as the taper
Maj. Tompkins was in his ninetieth
year and enjoyed the distinction of be
ing the oldest surviving alumnus of the
South Carolina university. It was the
wont of the students and professors of
the university to frequent his home in
Columbia, plying him with questions
concerning the early history ana former
graduates of the institution. He will
be greatly missed by the members of
the univev ity family.
Rev. R. N. Pratt, one of the Baptist
pastors of Columbia, accompanied the
relatives to Edgefield, and stated that
during the past twelve years he had
been very intimately associated with
Major Tompkins ana that during this
time he haa never heard him speak un
kindly of anyone. On the contrary, he
always had a kind word for everybody.
Mr. Pratt also stated that Maj. Tomp
kins realized that his race was nearly
run, and was perfectly resigned.
Mai. Tompkins was twice married,
the children of his first marriage being
D. H., J B. Tompkins and Mrs. Henri
etta Carter. His second wife survives*
him; also two daughters, Miss Julia P.
Tompkins and Mrs. W. H. Walter, and
two sons, L. S. and T. W. Tompkins.
Among those who accompanied the
remains from Columbia were Misses
Isol?e Shaffer, Mattie 'May McIntyre,
Mr. S. T. Carter, W. M. Carter and
Hon. F. S. Tompkins.
