In Memory of Mrs. A. G. Burk
Just when nature had walked
forth in her most attractive garb
and the sweet voiced bird of the old
southland was echoing back from
the hills his glorious song of praise,
for the mere pleasure of living, the
light of a home slowly,
?calmly and majestically went out;
for a time the aching void is great
for all those to whom it was given
the privilege of knowing Mrs. Burk"
halter. In these days of shallow hur
ry the world has set aside the faith
in the God-given blessing of friend
ship; not so she of whom all knew
but to love. Like the dew of the
twilight her acts of kindness were
silent, forceful and beneficial. She
had perfected the great charm of a
true friend since she always forgot
what she gave,but remembered keen
ly the most trivial thing she receiv
.ed. Coming of a race of people who
had furnished many soldiers, states
men and professional men she was
as simple in her manners as a little
.child. The advantages of truth had
.chrystalized in her the virtues so
needed to build up a nation. As a
'home maker she shed a light almost j
divine. When you passed within the
portals of her home she made you
ieel that you were the one she was
most charmed to be with and if cir
.eumstances with |you were not]
bright, there was a remembrance to
carry with you of absolute help.
Virginia gave her the soldier en- j
durance for South Carolina oan not I
forget the help LeRoy and Samuel
Hammond gave in the Revolution
when Gov. Rutledge from Charles
ton came for their aid to hold this;
section against the enemy. Nor can
.Georgia be less proud of the family
.cf the mother for history speaks |
well of the Cook name. A woman
like Mrs. Burkhalter is a blessing!
?to the race. Her life was a perfect |
?-example of the highest ideals. Her
.sorrowing relatives can only shut j
the door where memory holcls ' tne
picture of her, for they will "never
look upon her like again." Hei
friends cherish the fact that to j
know her was a liberal education.
To daughter and sons, I can only
^say that her loss, will be to your
.eyes, a sadness and times effac
ing fingers can not cease the staunch
-adherence to high principles, she at j
?every rung of li fe's ladder impress
.ed upon your growing mind, her ]
:parting praise of you, "I am proud
.oftvou," will be like the shadow of a
jgreat rock in the dreary waste
asp?te that come in every l?ife. A's
the mound was hidden by the tok
ens of living gifts, I knew that the]
just life she had lived would out
last these beautiful flowers that
the memory of her kind deeds
would go down the years smelling
sweeter and growing brighter as we
lived up to her standard.
Sleep on in rest sublime
Thou great and sainted dead,
From every heart, from every clime,
Thy children'sede?is by thy deeds are
Mrs. J. M. W. Glover.
We're Going Some.
[By Geo. P. Bible.]
I don't know what we're coming to,
Or where it all will end;
We're going some, I tell you now,
On this you can depend.
We try the earth a little while,
And then we try the air;
A set of speeding fools we are,
Who will not take a dare.
We run into a farmer's horse,
A cow, a calf, a child;
We turn a turtle down the bank,
We go as though we're wild.
We speed the limit every time,
Regardless of the law;
Sill any one it matters not
But save your mother-in-law.
We crank our engine on the earth,
Then sail into the sky;
No limit to our speed up here,
But bird-men must fly high.
We sail the azure blue, we-do,
We dip, we slide, we glide;
Upon the clouds of snow we ride,
And down our spiral slide.
We'll sail to Mars in course of time
Or send a wireless there;
. Oh, yes, we're going some, you see,
Its progress everywhere.
The Hootchy-Cootchy Tango Slide,
The vulgar Turkey Trot;
And other dances to be seen
Should speedily be fought
We're getting back to nature now,
In dress, we're on the Eve;
Of greater changes yet to come,
A gown without a sleeve.
Some empty heads, get up our styles,
That vanity must follow;
Skirt is slit the hose are seen,
Mock modesty is hollow.
We're building upward toward the sky,
No limit yet 13 seen,
We tunnel under liver beds,
Achievements are supreme.
The Telephone and Telegraph,
Unite this world as one;
And common brotherhood of man,
Through all this n?h will come.
FOR COTTON WEIGHER.
I hereby announce that I am a can
didate for the position of public cotton
V weigher for the town of Edgefield, and
, respectfully solicit the support of those
1 who market cotton at Edgefield.

the flag- whenever called upon.
