Sad Death of Mr. H. L. Bunch.
When the news was passed from
friend to friend throughout our coun
ty that Herbert Bunch was very ill
many expressions of concern and anx
iety were heard, but "hope which
springs enternal in the human breast"
mingled with our fears, and our ap
prehensions were partially allayed.
This, however, was only temporary,
and without foundation, for on Tues
day afternoon the message came to
Edgefield that this splendid citizen
and valued friend had passed away
at his home about seven miles from
The funeral took place at his home,
and was conducted by Rev. P. B. Lan
ham. Many sorrowing and sympa
thetic friends gathered to do his
memory honor, and to show their
love and loyalty to the dear mother, j
Mrs. Sallie Bunch and the sister, Miss j
Lilla and cousin, Mrs. Baynon who
constituted the immediate home cir
B#fore the death of Mr. Bunch, his
brother from Charleston, Mr. Walter
Bunch, came and remained by his
bedside till the end. His brother, Mr.
H. G. Bunch, who resides near the
old home, was constantly at his bed
side. Of the large family of nine
children, there remain but three now
to comfort the declining years of
their mother who is now in her 80th
The remains were laid to rest in
the family cemetery near the home,
beside those of his father and broth
ers and sisters. His immortal soul has
gone to a better country where one
by one his family and his friends
will go to meet him.
Mr. Bunch had been a consistent
and devoted member of Hardys
church for many years and was a
faithful, loyal and useful citizen and
was taking an active part in all the
calls of his country which the present
time demands of all the true and

Sudden Death of Mr. Julian
Saturday morning on our streets
Mr. Julian Strother was greeted by
his many friends, apparently in his
usual health and good spirit. Sunday
night the Death' Angel visited the
happy home, and took from the fam
ily the beloved father and husband.
About four ojclock Monday morning
he passed away almost before a phy
sician could be secured.
Mr. Strother was born and reared
near his present home, and was an
honored citizen for all these years,
beloved of his neighbors and family
for his kindness of heart and his loyal
yet unobtrusive friendship.
Mr. Strother was married many
years ago to Miss Ellen Walker, a
daughter of Rev. Edward Walker
who was a rector of the Episcopal
church here for a number of years
and who was honored and beloved.
There are three sons and daughters
of this marriage, Mrs. W. L. Duno
van?, Jr., and Miss Charlotte Strother,
and Lieut. Julian Strother. The latter
had visited home a few weeks ago
and Jiad returned to his military du
ties in Iowa. He was too far away to
reach Edgefield before the sad rites
were performed, but came as'soon as
he could reach here:
The funeral was conducted at the
home by Rev. R. G. Shannonhouse,
and the remains were brought to
Edgefield for interment in the village
cemetery. The body was carried to
the Episcopal church, of which Mr.
Strother was a member, for a few
hours to await burial. Many friends
and relatives went to the home and
to the grave to pay their last tribute
to his memory and to carry sympa
thy to the bereaved family. Beauti
ful flowers covered the last resting
place of our lamented friend.

well at the time they wrote to me.
Mary said she certainly enjoyed be

I could have seen you before I left

down to your house. I think of you
all every hour t>f the day, though.
You must take good care of Mary
and Mama until I see you again.
When I see you-all I will have a lot
of news to tell:
Tell Rupert I said he can write to
me some time. It won't make me mad.
Give all the children my love and tell
them to^write to me. Well, you know

you all write to me every chance you
get. You know how it is with me. I
have so many to write to that I can
hardly get around.

good bye for today. Hoping to hear
from you soon.
Your loving brother,
Josh J. Flinn.
