more attention seems to be given to
cultivating flowers now than in
former years. Two of the most
beautiful sights the writer's eyes
have beheld this spring were the

Should Act Speedily
To. the Voters of-the G th Ward:
For six years ? have'served the
town of Edgefield as warden, which
public service' during that time
has involved no small degree of sac
rifice on my part. And now that
the work of my office and the de
mands upon my time have so ma
terially increased, I am forced to
decline to serve another term. It,
therefore, behooves the citizens of
ward six to take the matter under
consideration at once, nominating
some one to be voted for in the aj>
proaching election. As the time is
limited, I have deemed it my duty
to apprise the voters of my decision,
abd to urge immediate action.

Remained Faithful Ur.to Death.
While the .Confederate veterans
are being honored let us not forget
the faithful slaves, for whom the
veterans themselves have a very
tender regard. Wherever they are
found, the few- remaining slaves of
former years should receive kindly
consideration, not only for past
faithfulness as servants but for their
protection of the wives and chil
dren at home during the.war, which
fidelity is without a parallel in his
tory. In this connection, the wri
ter desires to pay a tribute to "Un
cle" Alfred Butler who died last
week. He it was who slept many a
night during the Civil war upon the
front piazza of our great grand
mother, protecting the inmates of
the house. Soon after the war "l??
ele" Alfred entered the employment'
of Mr. A. .T. Norris and remained
with the .family until his death.
During the prolonged illness of Mr.
Norris "Uncle" Alfred was constant
ly with him, rendering in his hum
ble way whatever service he could.
Remaining, true to the promise
made Mr. Norris, "Uncle" Alfred
has been loyal and faithful to Mrs.
Norris and Mrs. Tillman. He al
was carried the keys and protected
their property as if it had been his
own. When a suspicious noise was
heard about the premises he would
get down his old gun and stay up
the remainder of the night, saying
"Miss Mary, you all go to bed. If
anything harms you, it will be over
ray dead body." Who does not ad
mire and honor such loyalty, such
faithfulness, such devotion to duty?
The.faithfulness of "Uncle" Al
fred was not without reward and
?incere appreciation on the part of
those whom he served. Mrs. Nor
ris and Mrs. Tillman gratified his
every wish when in health, and
when the good old man waTstrick
en, occupying a house in the yard,
they ministered to him with their
own hands, personally seeing that
nothing was left undone that would
contribute to his comfort or allevi
ate his suffering. In bis death they
have lost a life-long friend,"-which
loss has been very keenly felt. As
an expression of their appreciation
of his faithfulness and valuable ser
vices, Mrs. Norris and Mrs. Till
man will erect a modest but be
coming monument over "Uncle"
Alfred's grave in Macedinia cem
May the virtues and noble traits
of Alfred Butler be emulated by
the members of his race who shall
come after him!
Sewing Club Entertained.
Miss Ora R'res entertained "the
young: ladies' sewing club very beau
tifully Wednesday afternoon last.
The musical program and the spirit
ed contests that were engaged in
causad the time to speed rapidly by.
Before adieus were said elegant re
fresh ment? were -served. So de
lightful was the occasion that the
members of the club would be
pleased to have Miss Rives' home
made the permanent meeting place, j
