The Advertiser is pleased to see that)
a tablet will be placed in the court
house at Winnsboro to the memory of \
Sheriff Hood, the officer of the law who
lost his life in the fearless discharge of j
duty. We believe that suitable recog
nition should be taken of his faithful
ness, but we believe also that some ex
pression of commendation should be
given while an officer yet lives. All
.f the flowers should not be reserved
for his bier. Let the faithful officer
of the law know that you appreciate
his efforts to bring the guilty to jus
tice. Tell him so as you chance to
meet him going here and there in the
discharge of duty. Your words of j
sympathy and commendation will not |
only help an officer over many rugged
places but will inspire him to render j
even better service.
Map After the War.
The entire universe has in one way or I
another been affected by the war that |
is being waged in Europe. The na- j
tions of the earth, as has been shown ?
by the war, affect each other and are
dependent upon each other as are the j
the members of the body. It matters
not how the war results, whether Ger
many and her allies win or whether j
the members of the Great Triple Al
liance are victors,, many parts of the
earth will be permanently changed,
commercially as well as geographi
Africa is camparatively remote from
the war zone, and yet Africa is almost
as vitally involved as the European
countries, for the reason that the Dark
Continent is composed largely of colo
nies rather than powerful independent \
nations. Then, as a result of the war,
it matters not what that result be,
there will be permanent changes in

In Memory of a Precious Little
linnie Elizabeth Nixon: Three
years and six month aim Han ie, a
little sunbeam of beauty and love,
came to gladden the borne of her
parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Nixon,
of Clarks'* Hill, S. C., 'their hist
and only little. daughter.
Raby Hattie so full of love, .joy
and sweetness became the sunshine
of her home, of the neighborhood,
the church and Sunday school, for
even in babyhood her Christian pa
rents brought her every Sunday to
tte house of the Lord, and at the
age of three she recited her Sunday
school lessons. So wee and ?weet
she always attracted attention, and
often the superintendent would take
her to her class in his arms.
Fair haired and beautiful, this
child of God lent to us just a little
while that we might through her
sweetness have a glimpse of Heaven,
for God has taken her back to be
his nwn little lamb, not any longe,
in her sweet home with motherr
father and little John. Not at Sun
day school, but around the Great
White Throne, Hittie sings, "I ara
an Angel." We were not prepared
to part with our little blossom, like
a bolt frcm a cloudless sky came a
telegram sayiug ''Hattie is dying!"
The father who adored his little
one reached her yet a little while
before the end. Suck a shock! Ten
days or less mother had taken her
on the much looked forward to
sweet visit to her aunt, Mrs. Horace
Dorn of Edgefield.
When the message reached Clark's
Hill, it was the first morning of
the union meeting, a gloom was
cast over the entire community,
words of sorrow, regret and sym
pathy were expressed by every
one who knew this sweet child. j
Prayers poured forth, prayers that
our baby might yet live and come
back to UH and if not His will, to
comfort her sorrowing parents. Sun
day morning came with its tidings
that Hattie had passed away! Be
fore the crowd had gathered, un
knowing to any one came a sweet
dear woman, who does beautiful
things for others with her hands.
The altar was draped all in white,
and a crown of rose buds left in
memory of the little angel in
Heaven. In memory baby foot-steps
were heard and at roll call baby
tongues lisped "God is love." Chil
dren in groups together would say
Hattie is dead! Sweet little Hattie!
Her mother told me all through her
i lin ess she would pal her hand and say,
"Mother me love you." Another
time said, "Mother me want to go,"
You have gone precious child of
love. Hearts are aching, yet the
sweet words of thy baby tongue
"God i s love."
