Friday night last Mr. James R.
Smith who resides near Trenton
lost two barns and their contents
by fiie, and had it not been for the
rain tliat fell a short time before
his residence also would have been
consumed by the flames. About
11:30 o'clock Mr. Smith was in the
act of letting down a window on
the side of his house next to the
barn when he saw lightning Rtrike
the building. He ran out at once
but almost before he could let the
mules and horses from their stalls
the entire building was enveloped
in flames. A valuable milk cow was
burned. The barn contained 1,000
bushels ol ".ats in bundle, 2.50 bush
els of corn, 50 bushels of peas, a
quantity of fodder and hay. He car
ried insuranee to the amount of
$400, but his loss will exceed 81,000

Death of a Saintly Woman.
"None-none on earth above her!
As pure in thought as angels are:
To know her was to love her."
As we sat meditating upon the
death of that saintly woman, Mrs.
Mary A. Wates, (for whom the edi
tor of The Advertiser has from
eirliest recollection entertained an
affectionate regard, she being our
first teacher), these lines of one of
the poets came to mind. Yes. to
know Mrs. Mary Wates was to love
her. Everybody loved her.
She succumbed early Saturday
morning to a lingering illness, but
to her death had no sting, nor has
the grave won a victory. Her life
in the community was a livi r\g epis
tle, all who came under its b?n?fi
cient influence being impressed wit h
her deep piety and entire consecra
tion. Her goodness and greatness of
heart and soul was universally rec
ognized and appreciated, being fre
quently referred to as a fitting ex
amplar (as far as any human being
can be) in the church and commu
nity. She loved her church and
every department of its work, and
was always loyal and faithful to
every duty. She was one of the
pioneers in the woman's missionary
work in the Ed gu field association,
never, it mattered not how lower
ing the clouds of discouragement,
losing interest or zeal for the work.
Mrs. Wates leaves three daugh
ters, Mrs. George W. Bushev, Jr.\
M.sses Effie and George Mae Wates,
and one son, Mr. Charles M. Waua.
The funeral was conducted from
the Methodist church, her pastor,
Dr. M. D. Jeffries, of the Baptist
ohurch, officiating. The interment
took place in the village cemetery
