Change In Mill Management.
Mr. L. L. Clippard has resigned
as business manager of the Beaver
Dam Mills and will leave this week
for Enoree,* Spartanburg county.
He ha? been elected vice president
of the cotton mill at Enoree. Edge
field regrets to give him up. Since
he came to Edgefield five or six
years ago Mr. Clippard has made
many friends and has made an im
press upon our community life. He
has served for several years as a
member of the town council from
his ward and it is generally con
ceded that be has largely been the
means of improving conditionsjn
that ward. The good wishes of The
Advertiser and a host of .other
friends will go with Mr. Clippard
to bis new field, where we trust he
will he as successful as he has been
Mr. Clippard has been succeeded
by Mr. James H. Tompkins who
has been in the employment of the
company for the past ,tive years.
He began on a very small salary
but being faithful in every duty
a nd applying himself closely he was
steadily promoted. He has merited
each time the promotion and he
has never failed to make good. His
friends have congratulated Mr.
Tompkins warmly upon his having
been selected for the place made
vacant by Mr. Clippard's resigna
Parksville Mourns the Death of
a Beloved Woman.
In the death of Mrs. Talbert, the
beloved wife of Col. W. J. Talbert,
Parksville has experienced a distinct
loss. A vacancy has occurred in the
community life that must remain un
filled. She belonged to the old school,
and being reared under the environ
ment and influences of the Old South
? fifi i
in the days when true refinement and
culture seemed to count for more than
they do in these latter days-she exer
cised a wholesome influence in the cora
munity. It was a force more telling
and effective in its conservatism than
are the lives of many of this day and
She was the bosom companion of her
bereaved husband for nearly a half
century. Had not death claimed Mrs.
Talbert, she and Col. Talbert would
probably have celebrated the 50th an
niversary of their marriage in little
more than a year. She was reared in
the Red Oak Grove community in a
home of wealth and cultuie, being be
fore her marriage Miss Susan Garrett,
a daughter of Mr. Thomas Garrett, a
lar^e, very wealthy and influential
planter. In the days of her young wo
manhood she made a public profession
of religion, united with the Red Oak
Grove church and was a devout Chris
tian woman throughout the remainder
of her life. She was quiet and unob
trusive in her manner, her virtues and
graces of character being appreciated
and valued highest by those who new
her most intimately in the home, find
ing there her chief joy and delight in
making others happy. The surviving
members of the home which this good
woman presided over for so many
happy years are her devoted husband
and affectionate son and daughter, Mr.
T. Garrett Talbert and Mrs. W. G.
Blackwell. To these bereaved friends
.the editor of The Advertiser extends
sincere and profound sympathy.
Our Parksville correspondent and
Rev. G. W." Bussey, the minister who
baptized Mrs. Talbert, both pay her
beautiful tributes in this issued
