Mrs. Wates Expresses Thanks
For Thoughtful Attentions
of Many Friends.
Mr. Editor:- Will you allow me
space iu your valuable paper to ex
press my heart-felt thanks to our
good friends for the many acts' ol'
kindness and attentions shown ns
during the last two months. Not
only the people of Edgefield, but a
lot of friends in the county, and
some in other counties, have kindly
remembered us. I wish I could
thank each one personally, but as
that is impossible at this time, I
fall back on the dear old Advertiser.
Surely no one has ever been bless
[ ed with better relatives, friends aaid
neighbors than I have. How such
sweet remembrances have helped
me to pass through the darkest
[days of my life!
In reading sketches of the life of
Talmage a few days ago, I was im
pressed with one of his expressions.
After his great Tabernacle had been
destroyed by fire, and all the other
denominations had offered him the
use of their churches for worship,
he said in referri g to it in a ser
mon: Tell m f.Q^ that there is no
kindness i-.veen churches, or that
tber n0 8uch thing as Christian
bi tnerhood." We know there is
such a thing as Christian sympa
thy, and thank the Lord for it.
Now to all our good friends, who
have been so thoughtful let me say,
may the Lord bless you every one,
and may the deeds of kindness done
be as "Bread cast upon the waters. "
Nothing but love and good will
dwells in my heart] for you every

Death of Mrs. J. C. Long.
The announcement of Mrs. Long's
passing away on Sunday morning
at her home in Trenton was heard
?with much regret in Edgefield
where she bad a number of friends,
and was well known for her inter
est in the religious and benevolent
work of our county. Mrs. Lon?
followed in the footsteps of her
mother, Mrs. Lott, as a pioneer in
work of the Trenton church, and
was one of the first active members
?f the mission society, and the
leader aad organizer of the Trenton
Young Woman's Auxiliary, to
whom she was a splendid example
of perseverance and heroism.
She was an inspiration and com- <
fort to those who were associated I
with her in the church life, and was 1
always ready to render aid. In her
home, as many of us can testify,
she was "given to hospitality," and
often extended it to those near and
far. Mrs. Long will be greatly
missed in the circles cf missionary
activity, in our county, where shep
was best known, and greatly be
loved. F. A.'M.
