Mr. Bacon's Funeral.
Probably not in the entire history,
of -Edgefield has the doath of a citi
zen been more deeply or-more uni-j
versally mourned than that of Mr.
James T. Bacon. This fact was evi
denced by the closing of all places
of business on Friday during the fu
neral services and by the great
throng that assembled at Trinity
church to do honor to the distin
guished dead. The organ over
which Mr. Bacon had presided for
moie than forty years was draped
in white and the entire chancel was
20vered.with beautiful floral tributes
from friends not only in our town
but from all parts of the county and
Instead of following thc regular
Episcopal burial ceremony, more
than an hour was consumed in beau
tiful tributes.. First, Rev. Royal
Shannonho?se, the rector of the
church, spoke of Mr. Bacon as a
member and officer of his church
ind of his faithfulness as organist.
Others, who made appropriate and
pery feeling remarks were, Rev. T.
P. Burgess, Dr. C. E.. Burts, Rev.
L. D. Gillespie, Rev. Ernest Cornish,
Df Charleston, a former rector of
Trinitychurch, Messrs. J. C. Shep
