Death of Mr. Henry C Watson.
After suffering for nearly a year,
the life of Mr. Henry C. Watson
came to a peaceful close Friday
mi-rning at. the home of his mother,
IV rs. Virginia Watson, in Johnston.
Everything possible known to
science and human skill was done
to stay the malady that steadily
sapped his strengt!) but there was
no permanent response to the treat
ment. Since Mr. Watson was first
taken ill, nearly a year ago, there
has been a steady decline, Iiis loved
ones and friends were prepared for
th? worst, having been assured some
months ago th \t the end was only a
matter of time.
Mr. Watson had a host of friends
in Edgefield. He came lo the coun
ty-seat in 1894 to make his home,
having accepted a position in the
ofiice of cleric of court while the
late John li. Hill filled this posi
tion. He afterwards gave up this
position to engage in the livery
and livestock business. This he con
ducted successfully up to the time
he was seized with the fatal illness.
Mr. Watson was not only very
popular here but he numbered his
friends by the hundreds in. all
parts of the county. He descended
fiom an old 3n honored family, one
that has had a large part in making
the history of Edgefield county in
the past. His father,Mr. J. H. Wat
son, served the county very faith
fully as treasurer for two or more
Besides his mother, Mr. Watson

Shelton Sawyer and Miss May Wat
son, of Johnston, and three broth
ers. Mr. Edgar Watson of Ridge
Spring, Mr. Mr, S. J. Watson, of
Johnston, and Mr. L. G. Watson
The funeral was conducted Satur
day morning by Dr. E. Pendleton
Jones and Rev. E. C. Bailey, and
the interment took place in the
Spann cemetery at Ward.
Another good man, .Mr. J. M.

''For a number of years Mrs.
Roberts suffered acutely witiftttd

she was generally run down in
health, ond was forced to undergo
an operation, which, however, gave
her little relief.
"She perhaps suffered equally as
much with liver troubles and du

her liver. Daring the past five

efforts to find relief had failed, we
became discouraged. We saw almost
