Sad Death of Mrs. James T.
Tuesday night at ten o'clock, after
a short illness, Mrs. Kate Hill Mims
passed away into the great beyond
from her happy home in South Edge
field surrounded by all of her devoted
Mrs. Minis contracted influenza,
and from the first,-the worst had been
anticipated, as she was not strong,,
and had suffered a number of severe
Mrs. Mims was a member of the
Edgefield Methodist Church and was
kown for her sweet and gentle, yet
firm Christian character, loved and
esteemed by all who knew her and
the object of devotion in her own im
mediate family. She was 58 years of
age at the time of her death.
On New Year's day, she was well
and happy, attending that day a fam
ily reunion at the home of her son,
Mr. B. L. Mims where all of her fam
ily were together for the first time in
many months, her two sons, James
and John having just been discharged
from the army and were present to
make merry on this happy occasion.
The remains were laid to rest Wed
nesday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock in
Willow Brook cemetary amid a large
concourse of sympathetic friends
and sorrowing relatives. The services
were conducted by Rev. R. G. Lee of
the Baptist church, Rev. A. L. Gun
ter, her pastor, being sick.
There were many beautiful flon.l
designs sent by friends and loved
ones, and the Daughters of the Con

James T. Mims, four daughters, Mrs.
Henry Hughes Hill, Mrs. P. B. Day,
of Trenton, Misses Sophie and Kath
erine Minis, three sons , Messrs. B.
L.. James T. and John Minis. And a
brother, Mr. Whitman Hill of Au
Service for the Old Folks.
A beautiful service waa held in the
Baptist Church on Sundav afternoon
January 5, at 3:30 for the older peo
ple of the Baptist Chur'-h and the
community. The weather was very
cold, but in spite of that thc meeting
was very well attended, about twenty
five of the special guests of the occa
sion being present.
A number of the mos1" gracious
young girls of the church were invi
ted to meet the guests of honor and
pink carnations wera pinned on each
before they entered. Inside another
group further adorned them with
souvenir cards which contained a com
fortir.ir verse of scripture, that solace
for the young or old.
j The music was beautiful and in
Ispiring, most of it being the obi time
songs which will never grow old in
the sense of being out of .late,
j The quartette sang among other
^hinps, "Seeing NeittS Home'' and a
j lovely number was ' In the Chris
tian's Home in Glory," hummed by
the choir and the chorus sung, which
Mr. Lee said he had heard his mother
do so sweetly many timos in his child
Two features of the program were
the singing of "Long, long ago," by
little Carolyn Dorn in the becoming
costume of the GO's, and "When you
and I were young. Moggie"' by Mar
garet Lyon arrayed in the costume of
an old lady, both charmin cr thc hear
ers by their sweet faces and singing.
Miss Miriam Norris sang that gem
of ?ld love sonirs, "Silver threads
among the gold."
The sermon subject was "The Mel
low Year" preached by tho pastor,
Rev. R. G. Lee, whose kindly thought
and planning had made thc meeting
so helpful and so comforting to all,
both old and young who were fortu
nate enough to be present and partici
pate in the delightful occasion.
A quaint feature of the meeting :
was the lining out of the old hymn, j
"There is a fountain filled with
blood/' and the singing without or
gan accompaniment by the congrega- '
Many expressed themselves as ben- j
efittcd by this service and are hoping 1

Bowles Morgan Writes His
Parents from France
November 16, 1918.
Dear Pa and Mamma:
I suppose you all think I am not
going to write any more, but we have
been on the move ever since I wrote
you the last time, and I had no
chance to write, but as the war is
over now, and we are settled down
?for a while, I will drop you a few
i lines. The good news was a relief to
you, I suppose.
I cannot say just when we will be
sent home, bu.. I do not think it will
be long, I hope I can get back by j
j Christmas, but I will not bet on it
itoo strong, because I may get disap
pointed. You ca. look for me now
?when you see me coming. 1 know we
?will get back sometime this winter.
I was in the last battle that was
fought and could have almost pitch
ed a rock across in the German lines
when the last gun was fired.
Well, I will wait until I get home
to tell all the little details. I hope all
of you are well. I am just fine, get
j plenty to eat and don't have much
?work to do.
J I've just finished reading Mamma's
llctter that was written the 20th of
October. I will answer in a few days.
I think I can write oftener now, for
la while anyway. I suppose you are
'through gathering by now. Know you
will get a good price for your cotton.
I Hope you made a good1 corn crop.
?Save me some for next year.
Well, as the boys are talking so, I
can't write. With love to all.
Your devoted son,
Corporal W. B. Morgan.
The Best Cough Medicine.
When a druggist finds that his cus
jtomers all speak well of a certain !
'preparation, he forms a good opinion
of it and when in need of such a med
icine is almost certain to use it him
self aral in his family. This is why so
many druggists use and recommend j
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. J. B. j
Jones, a well known druggist of Cub-1
run, Ky., says: "I have used Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy in my family
for the past seven years, and have
found it to be the best cough medi- j
cine I have ever known."
This is to inform our friends and
th' public generally, that I have pur
chased from thc estate of my forme1*
partner, the late Mr. B. B. Wilson,
his interest in Merchandise and Live
Stock, and will continue the same
line of business at the same place.
His estate will retain one half in
terest in all notes, so parties owing
notes now due and past due will
please call and settle.
