Tribute to Miss Alline Crouch.
Did you know Alline Crouch was
dead? was the question asked Sun
day morning. The whole communi
ty was shocked for it was hardly
known that she was sick. She was
taken ill Friday and on Saturday
evening as the day closed her life
ceased and the beautiful spirit that
it bore took its flight to God who
gave it. She was just budding into
womanhood, but the few years of
her life had been fraught with such
experiences that had proven to the
world that she was a girl of far
more than ordinary talent. Several
years ago her mother died and the
cares of the household with several
younger brothers and sisters to care
for fell to her lot. How well she
did her work is not within man's
conception to estimate. She proved
to be tactful and efficient in every
respect. She was of a modest dispo
sition, lady like in every respect
and possessed tnose traits of charac
ter that makes woman beautiful.
Her remains were laid to rest in the
Ebenezer cemetery Sunday after
noon. The funeral was conducted
by her pastor Rev. G. L. Knight,
who paid a most worth}' tribute to
her life as a Christian.
On Saturday afternoon Miss
Madge Turner's music class gave a

On Sunday, morning the Presby
terian church was filled with the
members of the churches of all de
nominations, and the young men of
the S. C. C. I., came together with
one accord to greet the new pastor,
Rev. E. C. Bailey, who has just
come from Timmonsville to Edge
field to take charge of the Presby
terian field in this section.
Rev. J. R. Walker, of the Metho
dist church was the only other resi
dent pastor present, Rev. |R. G.
Shannonhouse being out of town on
an appointment, Dr. M. D. Jeffries,
conducting a revival service at
Ridge Spring, and Rev. P. P. Bla
lock being in attendance on the un
ion meeting at one of his out of
town churches. In the absence of
all the others, Mr. Walker did not
allow the large congregation, nor
the new minister to realize any ab
sences, but in every way filled the
vacuum, and most effectively voiced
the welcome of all.
Mr. Bailey. ;u tho beginning, ex
pressed most hearty appreciation of
the welcome extended him. An an
nouncement handed him by the Wo
man's Christian Temperance Union
of their meeting on the morrow,
called forth some remarks in regard t
to the petitions which are beiug cir
culated in our county on the dispen
sary question. He said that ir the
dispensary were not voted out of
the town of Timmonsyille in the
next 60 days, there would have to
be a revolution. He said that he i
would rather his arm were paralyzed i
and hanging limp by his side, than
that he should sign a petition to re

establish a dispensary. His imme
diate and courageous stand on this
very serious question which con
fronts our people, was very heartily
commended. Mr. Walker followed
with s. few words of similar import,
most wisely and enthusiastically
A pleasing feature of the service
was a vocal solo by Miss Marie Ab
ney, with organ accompaniment by
Miss Ellen Dunovant, and violin
obligato rendered by Miss Thelma
Bailey. The music came from a
choir of all the denominations of
our town. The sermon was a most
interesting and instructive one,
showing the duties of a minister of
the gospel in his relation to the
church and community life.

THE BUSINESS MEN
Continuek from pagel
in Edgefield county, for it legalizes
wrong. From a financial standpoint
it is worse for nearly all our people,
for more liquor will be drunk arid
less money made by people gen
erally. A dispensary means less
bread and meat, less good clothing,
fewer shoes, less education, less
religion, more coffins, but cheaper
ones, more murders, more unclean
ness, moro gambling, more souls
There is no bitterness in my
heart against any man, but I do
hate wrong. I love every man, but
I hate and will fight sin.
