Beautiful Tribute to Mrs.
Boyd. Entertained Stew
ards. Little Holstein
The sudden death of Mrs. F. M.

afternoon at 6 o'clock, was a great
shock to the entire town.
During the morning she had been
out, and was bright and those whom
?he was with could hardly believe her
Upon har return home she was
heard singing "I heard the voice of
Jesus calling," and it seems prophet
ic. This song she was to sing at a
coming meeting of this week of pray
About 3 o'clock in the afternoon,
one of her little daughters, on enter
ing the room, found her where she
had just fallen to the iluur. She spoke
a few words and soon lapsed into un
consciousness dying at 6 o'clock. The
immediate cause was acute Brights
disease. . ?
Mrs. Boyd was one of the most be
loved women of the town, and was al
ways identified with every good en
deavor; was an earnest member of
the Baptist church and especially
from the choir will she be missed,
where she often sang the gospel in
to the hearts of listeners. She was a
sweet, modest and unassuming: Chris
tian woman, a devoted mother and
loving wife. She was a friend to every
one, and the great sorrow exhibited
by all as thuy came into the saddened
home, showed how she was loved.
Mrs. Boyd was Miss Beulah Stew
art of Chester, before her marriage
to Mr. Fletcher M. Boyd, and she
leaves three daughters, Misses Louise
Marion and Stewart Boyd, her moth
er, and one brother, Mr. John Stew
art of Chester. The body was carried
to Chester on Thursday where it was
interred Friday morning beside the
graves of h??r father and brother,

Institute, Ya., and reached Chestei
soon after -;he funeral party arrived
The caskot was covered with flow
ers from loving friends, and beauti
ful designs were sent from the churcl
the choir, Missionary Society, and al
of the local organizations to whicl
she belonged. She was literally laid t<
rest amid a wealth of flowers-s<
symbolic of the pure, sweet life.

Appointments of Agent Reve
Internal Revenue Agent J. H.
Courtney, announces the following
schedule for the purpose of assisting
taxpayers in the preparation of In
come Tax returns for incomes receiv
ed during the year 1918:
Aiken-March 5 and 14.
Edgefield- March 6, 7 and 8.
Saluda-March 10, ll and 12.

The time limit for filing returns is
March 15, and the first installment,
or one-fourth of the tax liability, is
due not later than that date, however
this one-fourth is due when the re
turn is filed.
There are many changes in the
new law and the tax-payer is warned
not to accept any previous instruct
ions as excuses for not filing a re
turn. Every tax-payer who filed re
turns last year should make careful
inquiry of the requirements of the
present law. In general the require
ments are as follows: All persons re
ceiving incomes of $1,000, if single,
or $2,000, if married, are required tt
file returns. Don't be misled by ex
emptions for children. In cases where
husband and wife have separate in
comes, the amount received by each
must be returned. Farmers should re
port inventories of unsold crops on
hand December 31, i. e. cotton, cot
ton seed, etc. Taxpayers should come
prepared to show a complete state
! merit of their income and expendi
tures so as not to delay the officer.
The officer is detailed to render assis
tance to the taxpayer and is not re
quired to make an audit of his books.
Every taxpayer desiring assistance is
entitled to his share of help and no
one person must expect the officer to
give him more time than can be rea
All parterships are required to file
returns regardless of the amount of
income. All perspns who .paid as much
al as salary are required to file a re
turn of information. This does not
i mean the p^vment to share-croppers
. j of the amount due them on their
; share of crops raised.
All corporations are required to
1 file returns, but the office cannot give
2 ?time for corporation work except at
. 'such times as he is not assisting th?1
- ?individual, however, he will gladly
-'render sue-1 assistance as possible.
1 i Don't exi?ct the officer to visit your
e j place o*"DUS'ness f?r the purpose of
o Lenders assistance as he cannot do
c ?this-n a^ cases a"d it would lead to
o L^arrassment to begin such favors,

pared with prepared statements.

Hope for Russia.
On last Sunday night I went out to
Cambridge to hear the great Russian
patriot, Madame Catharine Bresh
kovskaya, who has been tenderly call
ed the "Little Grandmother of the
Russian Revolution." Long before the
doors of the church were opened I
found myself in tne midst of a great
crowd of people standing in the cold
waiting eagerly and expectantly to
get in. The church was packed and
there was such a great crowd that
could not get in, that the overflow
was accommodated in the Parish
House, and Madame Breshkovskaya
spoke, to them first. Dr. Crothers
said that, true to the, Scriptures, the
last should be first, and the first
should be last, but we were glad to
wait while she spoke to those out
She is one of those rare spirits who
has grown old gracefully, and if feel- .
ing is a test of years, she is but a i
girl. The dear old lady came on the ,
platform wearing an unassuming
black dress, though she is a countess.
She spoke in her very broken English,
of the Russian siti-.ation, saying that
in her trip from Seattle to New York
she had seen, the great prosperity of
America, while her own beloved Rus
sia was scarcely more than a desert
after years of war.
America is their only hope. The
rest of Europe is ia a turmoil. What
a wonderful tributo to .ur land that
though she has been exiled and mis
treated by her Dwn people-she
trusts us, who are strangers to her.
She asked that we. have patience
with Russia with her ignorant mil
lions, for we are a country of enlight
enment and progress.
There are two types of patriots
htose who die for their country, and
those who live for it. Madame Bresh
kovskaya has lived ::or Russia, and in
her old age sees its prospects gloomy
with thousands of c-rphans.
I count it one o:: the great expe
riences of my life to have seen a char
acter whose love of country was so
deep that neither age nor discourage
ment nor obstacles could stop her.
After all, it is ths invincible spirit
of its men and women that make a
country grow. There is hope for Rus
sia because such ns she love and

The Waikiki Hawaiian Quin
Begin to plan ri;?ht now to hear
this Lyceum number. On account of
the interruption caused by the "flu,"
our course this year is being crowd
ed into the spring months. The Wai
kiki will be here on the 31 of March,
unless there are changes made later.
This company is a real bit of
Hawaii, and their music and instru
ments are the genuine articles. Do
not fail to see them and hear them.
In carrying the Lyceum course the
Civic League has a special object in
view. The cultivating of a taste in

You can eat trasli and chew gum
until you kill your appetite for whole
some good. You can read trash until
you have no taste fer wholesome lit

shows, and the- impossible in movies
and lose your appetite for what a
good course in any good Lyceum
Company can give you. We are not
after the money primarily-that is
secondary. The object of all our en
deavors is civic bettern: We are
especially anxious to get the co-oper
ation of every citizen, male and fe
