Death of Miss Jennie Hughes.
On Tuesday morning just before
dawn Miss Jennie Hughes passed
away at her home at Cedar Grove,
the historic old Hughes home-stead.
' Miss Hughes had always lived at
Cedar Grove and was known and
beloved by all her friends in that
section as well as at Edgefield,
where she had many warm friends.
She had been a member of the
Edgefield Methodist church for
years. The interment took place at
the Blocker cemetery on Wednes
day morning beside the resting
place of many loved ones. Edge
field will miss this genial spirit, one
who had been reared in an era of
refinement, and an environment of
culture. One by one they pass out
and are lost to us, but there is hope
of a continuing city, one that fadeth
Heavy Loss From Fire.
Mr. J H. Cogburn who resides
in the Long Cane section, near the
Saluda line, lost heavily by fire yes
terday afternoon. His smoke-house
caught from sparks from the stove
flue and his residence caught from
th J smoke-house. As the fire could
not be checked, tb? barn and sta
bles were also burned. It seems
that all of the buildings on the
premises were burned except the
store-house. Mr. Cogburn succeeded
in saving his piano and a few other
articles of furniture but practically
everything he had was consumed'
by thu flames. Even the woods al
most half a mile away were set by
flying sparks and embers.
We were pleased to learn that Mr.
Cogburn had some insurance, but of
course his loss will be very heavy. |
His friends deeply sympathize with I
him in the loss be has sustained.

The truck products of all kinds
are also suffering for the want of
rain, but if the rain comes within
the next few days they will recover
from the effects of the dry weather.
About the only thing which the
present state of the weather is do
ing for us is to afford us a good hot
sun, enabling the farmers to harvest
their large grain chops. Some are
using the improved method of the
reaper and binder while others are
still using the same old method of j
the hand cradle.
