shot last Thursday at Denmark, is
now in a better condition,, and it is
"thought that after careful nursing
and treatment there will be no back

wounds were fatal. Mr. Mobley has
been at Denmark for sometime in the

We have had rain until there are
frog ponds in the cotton and corn
patches, even on the hills. Up to now
we have been able to turn the grass
over occasionally and keep the crops
growing but it looks as if we will not
get to move it any more. The heavy
rains of Saturday put Turkey Creek
over the bottom corn which was fine.
It was higher Sunday than it has been
for several years. Some people had
no corn planted except on the creek
bottoms. We have not had a freshet
in so long that they depended on bot
tom corn altogether. This will leave
them in bad shape for another year,
as it is too late to plant any more.

CARD OF THANKS.
To my dear friends:
I want to speak a word of grati
tude to all of you for myself and
family, for the numerous letters of
condolence that you have so thought
fully written us while we were try
ing to bear the severe shock of be
reavement in the loss of our dear boy.
We feel more than we can express
to y- .* in words, for this great source
of comfort. While it'is almost unbear
able, it is so consoling to know that
we have so many kind and loving
friends that sympathize with us
when the deep and dark shadows of
bereavement come into our homes
and hearts. I do not ;/e any one
could survive such a trial without
loving friends and an abiding faith
in our merciful heavenly Father.
Let me say to each of "you "that the
reflex influence of your letters may
bring joy and comfort to your hearts.
Remember the words of the Lord Je
sus when He said to His disciples:
"Inasmuch as you do it unto the least
of these, my brethren, ye do it unto

The announcement here Tuesday
morning of the death of Mr. E. C.
Winn which occurred at his home-in
Plum Branch Monday afternoon nt.^

row among his many friendsfin Edge

Mrs. Winn resided among us, about
five years, they made many warm
personal friends. Mr. Winn was the
oldest surviving member of this old
and prominent Edgefield county fam
ily. He was only a McCormick citizen
by adoption, having moved to Plum
Branch about 10 years ago to make
Mr. Winn was a man of sterling
qualities, whose word was his bond.
Most of his life was spent in. Reho

ly engaged in farming. During the
time that he served as county dis
penser at Edgefield, the affairs of that
institution were conducted in a
straightforward, business-like man

was buried Tuesda- .ernoon at five
o'clock. He is s' .ed by his wife
and two adopter children, Mrs. Evan
Cochran and Mr. Ralph M. Winn.
In Memory of Our Dear Little
We think, the Savour sayeth,
As long ago He said,
"Thy little darling only sleepeth,
She sleeps and is not dead."
We wonder why God took her,
We weep and wonder why
The lovely little blossom
So soon should fade and die.
And yet Thy will be done, O Father,
We know it must be best.
That pure and litjtle darling one
Sleeps on her Saviour's breast.
Forever free from sorrow,
Forever free from care,
Time shall not change her beauty,
In the golden years to come,
Oh, father's heart that loved her,
Oh, mother's heart that weeps,
Our Saviour is a shepherd,
His angels all He keeps. 1
She shall not want, nor grieve,
But in the pastures green
We'll meet her in the morning,
There's but a night between.
Dear one, you cannot come to us,
But you are ever in our minds,
And God be willing, we will meet
On the resurrection morn.

We have had so much rain till it
seems as if it will wash us, the crops
and all away. We are not complaining
though against God's work.
All are so rejoiced over the boys
coming home until we feel like God
was gracious by sending them home
to us healthy and hearty. So few of
them were wounded or killed and we
can't be t?oo thankful. Some of them
have tried to go to work on the farm,
but couldn't stand it.
I presume some of our boys got
water-bound Saturday and couldn't
get back till Sunday. Mr. James and

Lights for Farra Homes.
One of they many faults of the
Pharisees, as enumerated by the
Scriptures, was that though they
have eyes to see "they see not." The
same accusation might be made
against some f armers who have stu
dious and active children, anxious to
read, play indoor games and enter
tain themselves in the farm home.
Lights for the farm home are very
important. Farming is now a business
and none but business men and wo
men need hardly expect to n^ke a
success in farming. To meet the needs
in preesnt day conditions on the farm
records must be kept, inventories
must be made .information obtained
on the various problems. This means
that the farm must have light in the
evening and early in the morning.
Not only is a satisfactory system of
lights required for the modern home,
but the barn, the garage, the lawn
and the smokehouse should be light
ed. Busy people cannot afford to
"grope in the dark" figuratively
speaking or in actual practice. Much
less can we afford to deprive our
children of privileges of information
the farm paper, books, bulletins and
other sources afford.-Farm and
The arrangement of the farm
buildings has much to do with the la
bor cost of production in farming. It
is not generally appreciated that the
steps from the house to the barn and
the trip from the field to the house
and the tool shed costs money. But
such is the case when labor is expen
sive and farm equipment is high.
There is a demand for remodeling
of buildings on some farms. Many
farm buildings were erected in early
days when there was little ^.forma
tion available on farm planning and
when farm labor was a much smaller
item in the cost of producing crops
than it is to-day. On such farms, il
might be economy to plan the farm
stead and move and remodel such
buildings as the new idea may re
Where buildings are old, in need
of repairs and inadequate for presenl
needs, one may feel that it would be
but a few years at most until new
and, better buildings must be erected,
Then in order that time and money
and fatigue, all of which must eb ex
pended in successful farming, the
buildings should be replaced by sub
stantial and suitable structures, 01
they may be remodeled as the need
may require.-Farm and Ranch.

fore Chamberlain's Colic and Diar
