Death of Mrs. Dasher. Meeting
or Ridge W. M. U. Cotton
Weighers Elected. Tacky
Mrs. Annie Yonce Dasher, the
wife of Mr. E. B. Dasher, died at
her home here last Wednesday
morning at 7 o'clock, and in the
passing away of this noble chris
tian woman , there is an irreparable
loss, and the town has been sad
dened. Mrs. Dasher was the only
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence
Yonce, and was about 35 years of
age and had been married ll years.
She was the sister of Mr. W. P.
Yonce. She was a member of the
Lutheran church, and in this work
she will be sadly missed, for she
was one of the faithful laborers.
She was the organist, a worker in
the Sunday school and missionary
society. She was true to the cause
of Christ-true to all that was good.
In every duty of life she was a true
exam pl ar of exalted womanhood,
and through the web of her nature
ran a silver ribbon of inherent gen
tleness which raised and purified
everything she touched. The world
is better for such a life. Never has
there been sweeter companship and
happiness than has been found in
the home which she made such a
haven of comfort and joy.
The funeral services were con
ducted on Thursday morning in the
Lutheran chureh by her pastor,
Rev. M. L. Rester, assisted by Rev.
Pleasant E. Munroe, a former pas
tor. Rev. Kester spoke feelingly
of the departed and his thoughts
were based upon the following sub
ject: 13th-Hth verses, 4th ohap 1
These. The tribute to her was beau
tiful, "it is well with my soul, do
not sorrow for me," were her last
words, and the loved one's sorrow
not as those who have no hope, for
she is sweetly resting in the Savor's
mansion. "It is well with my
soul" and "asleep in Jesus," was
sung by the choir, and Mrs. M. E.
Norris sweetly sang, "Sometime,
we'll understand." The floral
tributes wore beautiful, the mission
ary society and Sunday school send
ing designs. When the services
were concluded, the white casket,
bearing the mother, with her infant
son clamped iu her arms, was carried
to the Mt. of Olives cemetery and
she was gently laid to rest embow
ered in fragrant blossoms. The
pallbearers were Messrs. W. C.

Mr. W. D. Woodward died on
early Monday morning at' the hos
pital in Augusta, and his body was
brought here to his home on the
afternoon train. About two weeks
ago he went to the hospital for
treatment, suffering from paralysis
of the nerves of the eyes, and the
cause of his death was found to be
from an enlarged artery at the base
of the brain, an autopsy having been
made. During his entire illness his
daughter Miss Alma Woodward
was at his bedside, and at his death
all of his children were with him,
each of them visiting him. The
other children are Mrs. Henry
Whitaker, Messrs. Clarence Wood
ward of Aiken, and William, Pick
ens and Albert Woodward. Several
brothers and sisters are also left.
Just three years ago, on the same
day, and almost at the same hour
his wife died. Mr. Woodward was
held in highest esteem by all who
knew bim, and none knew him, but
to like him. He was gentle and
kindly, aud in the home he has
been a loving and good father. As
a neighbor, he was ever ready with
a willing hand. He was a member
of the Baptist church, nor was he a
member in name only, for he strove
to live according to the precepts of
the Master, doing unto others as he
would be done by. He has gone
but he will not be forgotten. Hav
ing lived an upright life of honest
endeavor and strictest integrity has
sufficed to impress his memory
on the hearts of friends.; The
funeral services were held Tuesday
afternoon at 5 o'clock, at the Mount
of Olives cemetery, and the body
was laid to rest beside the grave of
his wife. There w"ere many beau
tiful floral tributes sent by friends
and his grave was literally covered
with flowers. The hearts of ail go
out to these young friends in their
hour of sorrow, having lost both
mother and father, but there re
mains for them, the sweet hope of a
re-union in the celestial .Home
where partings are unknown, and
there is no death or sickness.
About ll o'clock Tuesday night
the store of G. M. and P. A. Tim
merman north of Pleasant Lane
was totally destroyed by fire. They
carried a stock of about $2,500 and
nothing was saved, not even the
books. It is presumed that the
fire was caused by a lamp exploding.
When the fire was discovered and
the door opened the building was
filled with a dense smoke which
made it impossible to save anything,
not even near . the door. A small
amount of insurance was carried.
From what we can learn the loss of
this popular firm will be heavy,
which is deeply regretted by their
Inoculation for Cover Crops.
Messrs. W. W. Adams <fc Co.
announce this week that they have
on hand a full supply of Malford
cultures for the inoculation of vetch
and all the clovers. As the time is
near at hand for planting winter
cover crops, farmers should con
sider the purchase of cultures for
inoculation. The yield can be al
most doubled by inoculating the
se.id before planting. Farmers who
read and keep abreast of the times
fully appreciate the advantages de
rived from inoculation. Read
