Tribute to Mrs. Charles F.
This beautiful woman, devoted
Christian, and gracious and loyal
friend-the friend in good works,
has left us. It is said that the most
lasting and the most loyal friend
ships are those relationships which
came by laboring together in a no
ble cause. This was the test of
friendship whioh she knew how to
[manifest. She did not desert in
the time of need.
Although she was so bright and
happy and much sought after for
her good cheer and. unselfishness,
she muBt have borne many a burden
for the works sake. Every one does
who works as she did. Her heart
was in every phase of the Master's
service, and she was intelligent and
broad in her views, and so magnan
imous. I do not know whether
everybody understood her or not.
Such souls are rarely understood.
She was'Tn tune with the Infinite,"
and therefore not always an open
book to the discordant notes of this
world. All ber life she had been
the idol of her home. The only
daughter and such an attractive one,
it was a well known fact that she
was the centre of a circle who loved
and admired and lived for her.
There are left the mother and fath
er and her devoted husband whom
she always spoke so affectionately
of as "Charlie" and when she Baid
it we knew that she was necessary
to his happiness. She qaoted what
he said often as if every word was
very dear to her. One beautiful
daughter is left to mourn for this
sweet companion of her youth, fori
they were both young.
For many years Bessie Pechmann
has been known throughout our
county, not only for her personal
charm, and goodness, and christian
character, but for her sound judg
ment, her taste and skill in many
ways. She was sought for many
services as one capable, willing,
self-sacrificing and for which her
name will never die.
On the sad occasion when the last
tributes were being paid to her mem
ory, Mr??. White of Johnston who
was her friend and neighbor and
comrade in loving service stood
over her last resting place and de
livered a sweet and tender mes?age
to the friends around, telling them
of the love and devotion to John
ston and her interests manifested
and expressed by this loving heart,
saying she had told her often that
she prayed for many of thtm by
name. At the grave there were
many, many who stood there grief
stricken or saddened or thoughtful
-but there was no dark and dismal
grave-there was nothing to shock
the sensitive grief in placing the
beautiful form in the uosora of
Mother Earth. What we saw was
pure white casket covered with
floral tributes, and under and around
a mass of beautiful and graceful
flowers, concealing the earth from
view-and there thus surrounded,
in the embrace of Mother Earth
who is kind and will take care of
the precious trust till God re-unites
it to the soul, lie.- the earthly form
of our friend, her soul ecstatic in
that glorious world for which we
She bore the burden and heat of
the day and counted her life as
nothing. She was one of those
spirits of which the world is not
worthy, but by her living she has
made them more worthy. We shall
see her"Over There," when our little
Bpan of time has merged into eter
nity. Till then farewell! Perhaps
the meeting is nearer than we think.

The conference was entirely free

"Mauldin & Chapman, contrac
tors for the Bailey Military Insti
tute, have completed their work.
The record made in erecting these
two buildings will be of interest to
the people of Greenwood, showing,
as it does, the hustling Greenwood
spirit. Actual work on the two
structures was begun on April 3rd,
and the contractors were to finish
the job August 20th. They have
completed it on August 5th, thus
showing that they were engaged in
the work practically four months.
Counting the number of days, it
will be seen that the Institute build
ings were completed in every detail
in exactly 76 days. Damage by two
windstorms delayed the contractors
27 days and there were 18 Sundays
in the four months, thiii making
the actual workiug time 79 days.
"When the Bewerage system is
installed the buildings will be ready
for occupancy. This work is to be
done by the city and was not in
cluded in the contract to Mauldin
& Chapman. As already staled.
Mayor Marshall hopes to have all
the sewerage connections made by
September 1st. This will give the
faculty plenty of time to make all
preparations for the opening of the

The prospects are all that could

are that the barracks will be taxed
