A Perfect Life Finished.
At 1:30 o'clock on Monday night
there came an earthly end to a short
but beautiful life, when Willie Sul
livan Peak passed out from the con
fines of a limited existence to a land
eternal and full of joy. Willie was
born in September, 1900, and had
lived all her life in Edgefield. She
had been from her childhood on an
example of energy and studiousness,
with wholesome ambition for an edu
cation and to do the best things in
As a little girl she was not?d for
faithfulness at Sunday school, never
missing a single day for more than
seven years. She was a continual
prize winner in her classes for
scholarship and attendance.
In her graded and high school ca
reer she was always among the very
first in scholarship. Having finish
ed two years with honors at Win
throp College she was taken ill more
than a year ago. First she had influ
enza during her last winter at col
lege, but had apparently recovered
and was looking well when she re
turned for the vacation.
When the Students' Entertain
ment began in 1918, she took part in
reading, being gifted in this art,
and in 1919 when the rehearsals be
gan, she was one of the first to come
and to take part enthusiastically.
Before the time had arrived for this
to take place,, she had been taken
very ill with fever, partially recover
ing from that and going to the State
Sanitorium- in Columbia where she
remained for the fall and winter
In the spring she came home, and
was surrounded by her devoted fath
er and mother and her affectionate
sisters. and little brother, ? who gave
pt their best to her comfort and
cheer. She said before her death that
her favorite passages of Scripture
were "I am the way, the truth and
the Life," and "In my Father's house
are many mansions."
Willie was 19 years of age, which
reminds us of the life of Mary Wil
lard, the beautiful sister of Frances
Willard. Miss Willard wrote a biog
raphy of this dearly beloved sister,
and called it "Nineteen Beautiful
Willie became a member of the
church when she was seven years of
age and was baptized by Dr. C. E.
Burts. The last words she said were
"Oh Mother," as she was drifting
out into that beautiful land beyond
the stars "where the weary are at
The sympathy of all the communi
t}' and the county where Mr. and
Mrs. Peak are known, go out to
these bereaved parents and sisters,
Mrs. P. H. Bussey, Mrs. Otis Mob
ley, Mrs. David Britton and Miss
Royall, and the little brother, Ed
The funeral was conducted from
the Baptist church by her pastor,
Dr. R. G. Lee who came in his car
from Gray Court, where he is con
ducting a meeting to be present.
The pall bearers were Messrs.
Walter Cantelou, Claud Harris, Fran
eis Simkins, William Strom, William
Thumond and Douglas Timmerman.
A wealth of beautiful flowers cov
ered the casket and^he front of the
pulpit, designs having been sent by
the Young Woman's Auxiliary, of
which she was a member, the Wo
man's Missionary Union, Daughters
of the Revolution, Woman's Chris
tian Tempeance Union and Daugh
ters of the Confederacy, of which
organizations her mother is a mem
ber. Many beautiful floral designs
were there from her family v and
friends an agve evidence of the val

Death of Mrs Cornelia Glover.
On Wednesday of last week Mrs.
Cornelia Glover died at the home of
her only daughter, Mrs. R. C. Pad
gett, having ben an invalid for sev
eral years. She had also been denied
for some/years the privilege of sight
but was always cheerful and hospit
able when friends called, never fail
ing to show appreciation of a visit.
About two years ago she had a
slight stroke of paralysis, and had
never fully recovered from this, two
succeeding ones having occurred,
the last one only a few weeks ago.
Mrs. Glover was 72 years of age,
and a member of the Catholic chuch,
her funeral having been conducted
at this church by Father Ford of
Aiken, and her remains interred in
the Village cemetery by her own re
During the years of her invalidism
she spent most of her time with her
daughter, Mrs. Padgett, where she
received the most devoted attention
Mrs. Glover was born near Pine
Bluff, Arkansas and met her hus
band, Mr. Mitchell 0. Glover when
he visited that section on business.
After her marriage she spent most
of her life in the Meriwether section
of Edgefield, for a few years living
in Augusta to send her children to
school. Mrs. Glover was said to have
been a beautiful young woman.
Besides Mrs. Padgett, three sons,
Messrs John and Mitchell of North
Augusta and Wilie, of Sweetwater
community are left to mourn her
Death of Mrs. Lavinia Wright.
Our Johnston correspondent gives
a full account of the sad passing
away of Mrs. Wright, but we are
adding a few words. It was a great
shock and grief to Mrs. Allie Kin
naird to learn by a messenger from
Johnston that her beloved mother
had passed away suddenly on Wed
nesday evening at the supper table,
being perfectly well as far as any
one knew up to that time. Mrs. Kin
naird left Edgefield for Johnston at
ll o'clock, having attended prayer
meeting, not knowing of her moth
er's death. Her death was so sudden
that even the doctor did not reach
her in time
We are now ready to serve meals at all hours, day or night.
We invite the public to give us a trial. That is all we ask,
being confident that we can render service that will please.
We have a first-class cook and everything is served in the
best possible manner.
