Capt. W. C. Tompkins and the
detachment from the Edgefield Ri
fles who spent last week in Colum
bia engaged in target practice re
turned Saturday night. They were
greatly pleased with their stay in
the capital city. Being on duty on
ly a short time each day, gave the
soldier boys much time for sight
seeing and pleasure seeking gener
ally. The highest score among the
Edgefield boys was made by Mr.
John Batten, who will probably go
to Charleston- to participate in the
practice thereat an early day..
In the write-up of the commence
ment exercises in The Advertiser
last week an error, which was alto
gether unintentional, was- made in
giving Miss Couch and her pupils
credit for the splendid concert on
Thnrsdayevening,when the program, I
with the exception of two numbers,
was rendered by Miss Fannie Shep
pard's pupils. Miss Francis Bur
gess, who played a very difficult se
lection without notes and of whose
skillful performance special mention
was made, bas been Miss Sheppard's
pupil for four years. It Ava s Miss
Sheppard Avho introduced the four
pianos in the S. C. C. I. After
graduating from the S. C. C. I.,
Miss Sheppard attended the Brenan
Conservatory' of Music and comple
ted'the full course in that institu
tion. She is not only a very talent
ed musician but is unusually gifted
in the art of teaching. That her
services in connection with the mu
sic department of the S. C. C. I.
baye been of the highest order is
attested by the Arery marked
progress her pupils have made.
Her Works do Praise Her.
Frequently persons pass away
and.are soor forgotten, leaving no
impress, nothing that is enduring
by which they can be remembered.
Such was not the case with that
saintly woman, Mrs. Elizabeth Day,

eternal sleep on Thursday last at
her home near Trenton, where she
passed her entire earthly sojourn.
Her good deeds and consecrated
Christian life will be an imperish
able monument to her memory. In

upright, exemplary lives of her sons
Although she bas at last been
called up higher, Providence dealt
kindly Avith the kindred, friends and
neighbors of Mrs. Elizabeth Day in
sparing her to them for so long a
period. Every .life that came in
contact with hers became truer and
nobler by reason of the association.
Her beneficent influence was not
confined to her immediate commu
nity. EA'en those who did not enjoy

Graduates From Davidson.
The editor of The Advertiser has
watched with very keen interest the
college career of our young friend,
Mr. Dozier A. Lynch, who tQ-day

vidson college to-day. Ile has made
a good record at college, ranking
easily as the leading orator, of the
student body. He it was who won
the trophy in the oratorical contest
this spring between Davidson and
Besides being an exemplary young
man in every oilier respect, Dozier
has been a hard student from thc
very first day that he entered school
as a bare-footed boy. He has laid
a good, solid foundation for his fu
ture career. We understand that it
is his purpose to take ap the law as
a profession. During the summer,
he will do som? engineering in
Georgia, and will probably enter
the law department of the South
Caroliga University in the fall.
Delightful School Picnic. ;
During the past session the school
at the mill village has been .very
successfully taught by Miss Sophie
Abney, assisted by her sister, Miss
Marie Abney. Several weeks ago
Miss Abney began planning to give
the children a picnic at the close of
the school, having selected Centre
Spring as the most suitable place
for the day's outing. Everything
being in readiness the little folks
came together Saturday morning
and boardsd the buggies and wag
ons that Mr. B. F. Zimmerman had
very kindly provided. They thor
oughly enjoyed the ride out to Cen
tre Spring, that ideal spot for pic
The day was very pleasantly
spent in romping, playing and en
gaging ?i. all sorts of gimes. At the
noon hour the Misses Abney spread
a great feast for the little folks and
every one of them enjoyed it to the
fullest extent. The last item of the
menu, but by no means the least,
was ten gallons of ice cream, with
cakes of all kinds in like propor
As the shadows lengthened, the
little folks returned to their homes
in town, being profoundly grateful
to their very kind and faithful teach

Death of Mrs. Day.
On Thursday last our community;
waa saddened by the announcement j
of the-tj?eath of Mrs.' Eliz?befh Day.
Mrs. Day has been ill for the great
er part of the year and only one of
temperate habits and a strong con
stitution at such an advanced age
could have held up so remarkably
well. She spent her whole life where
she wa* born. If we were to write
only one sentence expressive of her
life it would be, "She went about
doing good." She came from one of
the oldest and most prominent- fami
lies of old Edgefield district, the
Hatchers. Before the war she was
married to Julius Day and to this
union ten. children were born, of
whom si* preceded her to the grave.
Those, surviving are P. B., B. J.,
Mrs. W. M.*. Yann and Miss Kate.
Her life was blessed with many
years andv.she used them for a bless
ing to those about her. Whenever!
her name is mentioned it will re
mind us of some good deed, some
act of friendship, some kindly ad
vice, some Christian service. Her j
life was as. noble as it was gentle.
Her words of encouragement have
made many rejoice. Her advice has
given hope to the doubtful. Her
cheerfulness has gladdened the heart
burdened with sorrow. Her Chirs
tian life has led others to seek their
peace which only heaven can give.
To her church she was dutiful; to
her Lord faithful unto death. In the
last hours she called each of her
grandchildren separately to her bed
side and gave them her farewell
words, words of hope, encourage-1
ment and ?Christ'like advice and a
request that they should bear her
body to its last resting place. While
her life has had its share of sorrow
and tears we can but say, "Surely
goodness and mercy hath followed
her the days of hsrlife and now she
will rest in the house of the Lord
forever." May the young look upon
her life to emulate those graces of j
Christian character that makes life
worth the living,
The funeral services were con
ducted at the church of Our Saviour,
ol' which she has been a member for
years, and the body laid to rest in
Ebenezer cemetery. The concourse
of sorrowing friends and the floral
offerings bespoke for the esteem in
in which she was held. All Trenton
is bowed with sorrow.

Educator as Well as Gardener.
"The Rev. R. G. Shannonhouse,"
The Edgefield Advertiser, says, "is
the Burbank' of Edgefield. He is,
not only the earliest and best gar
dener, but, his garden contains plants
and vegetables that hitherto have
never been grown in Edgefield. It
is indeed wonderful how plants
respond to his magic touch." N
An expert gardener is an educa
tor in a community and, moreover,
he is nearly always a teacher of
other things. The man who pro
vides an object lesson in gardening
contributes to the elevation of his
neighbors. Wherever are well kept
and well tended gardens, the people,
are progressive. Good gardens and
civilization go hand in hand.-The
Doctor: " Now, don't worry,
whatever you do; a man with heart
disease can't afford to Worry. Avoid
