at the home of Mrs. W. B. Cog
burn. This organization is prepar
ing for their fancy work bazaar
-early in March, fand ask contribu
tions ol this kind from all who will
aid them. Always encourage the
young in all their undertakings, for

in the words of George Eliot,
"every crucial moment is a climax."
[ New Spring Arrivals.
The attention of the early shop
.pers is directed to the announce
ments in Messrs. Rives Bros. ad
vertisements, in which ?they call at
tention to the many new spring ar
rivals. They have stylish oxfords
.direct from the leading manufactur
ers, large assortment of beautiful
?laces and embroideries, boys' knick
erbocker pants, ladies voile .erge
-skirts. Bunter Brown hosa, and
large assortment of spring: ging
hams. These goods %were all care

James T. Bacon.
lt is pleasing to note the monu
ment which has been placed at the
grave of Col. Jas. T. Bacon in Edge
field is a plain, modest cross. Any
thing ornate or pretentious, any
thing not of exquisite taste, would
?desecrate the memory of the simple
.hearted gentleman whose quiet rest
ing place has been marked by this
?ross. Col. Bacon's memory of
coarse needs no stone to perpetuate
it. He was long ago securely placed
ia the choicest traditions of old
JEa?ofieldv rich in traditions as
Edgefield is.-Columbia Kecorttr~
