which occurred last week in Green
wich, Conn., at the home of her
daughter. Mrs. E. A. Schnell, was
learned here with deep regret, and
when the body arrived here on Thurs
day and was carried to her former
home, sorrowing friends came to pay
a last tribute to her, and to place
flowers- on her bier.
Mrs Ivey was one of the earliest
residents of this place, coming here
from Winston, N. C.. with her hus
band. Capt. John R. Ivey.
She was a woman of much intel
lect and talent, and was of the old
school of the type of polished, refined
and cultured women. She was a writ
er of meric, and her non-de-plume
was "Daisy Dean." The productions
of her pen have brought great pleas
ures to numbers, her chief produc
tions being popular fiction, plays and
articles on current* events.
During her days ot' activity, she
was always identified in everything
that was for the good of the town.
She was a pioneer worker of the
W. C. T. U., and what she has done
in interest of this, has been of lasting
good. She was a member of the Meth
-odist church and was faithful to it,
and was always found in her pew as
long as her health permitted
About three years ago she became
so feeble, she went to stay a while
with her daughter, Mrs. Schnell, but
was never sufficiently strong to re- j
Her children were devoted to her,
and every attention and luxury was
given her that she might be happy
and comfortable. Although so far
away, the other two living children,
Dr. Hugh Ivey of Atlanta and Mr.
Preston Ivey of Columbia, made
visits to her when she wanted to see
them. The. loving care of her daughl
er. Mrs. Schnell, was beautiful.
The funeral services were conduct

lar of the Methodist church in th
home and later thc body was tender
ly laid to rest beside the grave of he
husband, two sons, John and Rains
ford being buried here also.

Would you not like to feel that
j your stomach troubles are over, that
:you can eat any kind of food that
you crave? Consider then the fact
that Chamberlain's Tablets have cu

many who have been restored to

A Faithful Army.
May the Lord bless the faithful
mail carriers! They brighten many a
home these cold, dreary days by car
rying to their very thresholds, every
morning, something new and fresh to
read. It may rain, hail, sleet - and
snow, but in the splash of mud and
ice, this army of humanity-blessers
never fail nor falter. And whatever

engaged in army service and border
duty are the only ones who are serv
I ing their country. This army of car
j riurs is likewise rendering service of
inestimable value. Be kind, courteous
j and thoughtful to your mail carrier.
