Death of Mr. W. J Harling.
Tuesday morning about six o'clock
Mr. W. J. Harling, better known
among his friends as Jack Harling,
passed peacefully away after a brief
illness. Mr. Harling had been in fail
ing health for more than a year but
for the past several months his gen
eral health had been better than usu
al. The announcement of his death
was a great shock to his Edgefield
friends, for none of them knew of
his serious illness. When he and Mrs.
Harling were in Edgefield a short
time ago he appeared to be stronger
Mr. Harling faced the end bravely
being conscious almost to the last
breath. He conversed freely of ap
proaching death, stating that all was
well with him. In the death of this
exemplary citizen, not only Colliers,
but Edgefield county has sustained
an irreparable loss. As a farmer and
business man he was a pronounced
success, as a neighbor he was always
thoughtful and kind, as a friend he
was loyal and true, and as husband
and father he was affectionate, kind
and indulgent. Nowhere will he be
missed more than among the remain
ing members of the home-circle, and
to these bereaved ones the writer
extends sincerest sympathy. Besides
his devoted wife, Mr. Harling leaves
three sons, Roy. Edward, and Jack
Harling, and two daughters, Maude
and Susie May Harling.
The funeral was conducted by Rev.
I. W. Kesterson Wednesday morning
at Red Hill of which church he'was
a member. A very large number num
ber of friends gathered to pay a last

splendid patriotic work without re
nuneration. Too much praise cannot
ae given her for her loving, willing
service in this time of great peril and
