Holiday Season One of Pleasure
and Happiness. Surprise
Marriage. Many Love
' The Christmas season passed in
pleasure and happiness to the town
in general, and it e??~.ed that this
season has never been more fitting
ly or beautifully observed before.
Appropriate services were held in
I all the churches Christmas eve, and
[ joyous music was an attractive fea
ture. Upon request that eve, many ,
. . candles burned in the windows.
. These not only gave Christmas
chepr, but had been placed there,
asking that as they burned, would
? pray that p^ace iu every sense of
the word come to the world.
x The Carolers were not able to
make the many rounds as they had
planned for, as the weather was in
(There were many, many beautiful
acts done on Christmas day. Those
not so blessed with all the good
? cheer that Christmas brings, were
well remembered, and the ?ick and
? shut-ins were all cheered with
Christmas flowers ard fruits. (
It seemed that many followed up
the thought that Rev. Brooke
brought out in his Christin?* eve
message-that of making Jesus1
birthday a happy one to Him. 'Por
in as much as ye have done it unto
the least of these, ye have done it
Mr. Brooke stated that in oin
Christmas expressions of May you
have a merry Christa)?-*." etc.. that
this one should be added, May ,
Jesus bave a happy birthday." It
is His birthday we are celebrating, ,
and Him, we should make happy? ,
Johnston truly made it a happy
birthday for Him.

Mr. Jackson's Loss.
Saturday night, December 23, the
residence in north Edgefield belong
ing to Mr. W. C. Jackson was de
stroyed by fire. It was occupied by
Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hammond but
no one was at home at the time tue
building caught. As there was so
much noise and excitement incident
to the Christmas season the alarm
was not heard when first given,
consequently the people were late
in gatheririg to extinguish the fire.
The building was totally destroyed
and Mr. and Mrs. Hammond saved
very little of their household ef
fects. Mr. Jackson had insurance
to the amount of ?1,000 on the
building bul it would require nome
thine like ?2,500 to replace it. Mr.
and Mrs. Hammond had no insu
rance. The people sympathize with
them in the loss sustained.

Happy New Year to all, a bad
day it is though. The last dar and
night of the old year were beauti
fully clear and cold.
Not as is usually the way, the
old year goes out. Generally, 'tis
so sorry to leave us, that it weeps
itself away. The year 1916 has
been a grand year for the most part,
and we hope for our new year to be
as good, or better.
Christmas has come and gone
very quietly with us. It being so
misty and cold, with occasionally a
rain, all the week, we have not ven
tured out to make any visits as we
hoped to have done, but stayed close
to a good warm fire, and were glad
we had it and a good home.
The roads have gotten so wet and
muddy the auto travel has stopped
almost entirely on the Martintown
road, but.the buggies .and wagons
do not fail to go and cut it up.
What a sad ending of the year it
was for the owners of the Hampton
Terrace Hotel wheu it burned to the
ground, before day, the last day of
the year. We understand it was
only insured for ?200,000, while the
value was estimated at $2,000,000.
They,had just put in a lot of hand
some new furniture and were hav
ing painting done, preparatory for
a fine season, as so many had alrea
dy engaged suites of rooms.
The dairy men had also made
great preparations to supply them
with sweet milk, which of course,
will cut them off. The housekeep
er and most of the servants had ar
rived, as the season was to open on
