Tribute to Mr. Whitfield
"Whitfield Glauzier was born in
Edgefield District July 17, 1825,
and died Aug. 5, 1920. His parents
were John and Mary Glauzier. The
names of his brother? and sisters as
given by himself to 'ihis writer,
-were Margret, Jacob, John, Patsy,
-Betsy, Mahaly, William, and Aa
Though his education was limit
ed he had a good mind and a good
memory. He was an honest, in
dustrious, Christian man, had the
confidence of all who knew him,
and died in peace with God and
.men. He wrote out the scripture
text that he wanted used at his fu
neral, and selected the hymns he
wanted sung. The text he selected
were Psalm, 110:15, and 2 Timothy,
4:7 and 8 verses. The hymns were
"Jesus'-Lover of My Soul," "What
:a Friend we have in Jesus," and
"Asleep in Jesus." Such a man is
.worthy of a place in our thought

Child Cured of Bowel Trouble.
A child of Floyd Osborn, Notary
Public of Dungannon, Va. was taken
with bowel trouble. Mr. Osborn gave
it Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea
Remedy and it quickly recovered. In
speaking of this remedy he says "It
is the best I ever used."
"BACK TO GOD'S COUNTRY"
From the Story "Wapi the Wal
rus,",, by James Oliver Cur
wood. Sixteen Varieties
of Wild Animals.
NEVER A FILM LIKE THIS.
The story is taken from the novel by
James Oliver Cawood "Wapi the
Walrus," and included in the scene?
are the most thrilling episodes that
have ever been featured. Nell Ship
man, the famous star, in company with
a large cast, for months lived and tra
versed the barren wastes of ice and
3now that surround the North Pole^
and induced the great Dane Wapi to
love her to the extent of saving her
life,, despite his fierceness and atavistic
In the picture are shown bears who
fight one of the moat wonderful boxing
matches that ever thrilled great crowds,
whose prowess caused them t? be nam
ed Dempsey and Willard Cubby, and
the mountain lion, the lynx, and in fact
sixteen different species of wild animal,
all taken in their native haunts, where
man and beast battle for life in the ice
fields and snow wastes of the Arctics.
One cannot commence to elucidate
the dangers and patienc? that marked
each step in the picturization of this
film, but the fact the Nell Shipman was
awarded the Carnegie Medal for saving
lives three times during its course, will
give an idea of the actual terrors that
The excitement that thrills, the com
edy that relieves, the nature beauty
that causes wonder, the dark and gray
and snowy wastes v/here the Eskimo,
lives, and the fierceness of hunger
driven animals are all shown in this
wonderful picture. As an extraordi
nary film of unusual beauty, the critics
have been unstinted ia their praise.
When Nell, the star, places her arms
round the savage Dane, who is tearing
to ^leath two traders, one's hair rises
on end with the sheer courage of the
girl. In fact the elements that go to
make up this strong drama were so
unique and terrifying that Ernest Ship
man, the man responsible for the pic
ture, swore an affidavit which reads as
County of New York,
State of New York.
Personally before me, a notary public
in and for the above state and county,
appeared Ernest Shipman, who upon
being duly sworn deposes and says, to
wit, that all statements, conjments,
facts and notices, that he may publish
or cause to.be published at any time or
from time to time, in connection with
the moving picture entitled "Back to
God's Country," by James Oliver Cur
wood, and produced by the Curwood
Carver company, and to be released by
the First National Exhibitors' Circuit,
Inc., are in every form, shape and man
ner the absolute, authentic and positive
statements, comments facts and no
tices and are in no form, shape and
manner exagerated or overdrawn.
(Signed) Ernest Shipman.
Sworn and subscribed before me this
26th day of August, 1919.
