She was a very remarkable woman
in many respects, with many beauti
ful characteristics. Duty was a sub
lime word with her and she was al
ways found faithful. She loved to
serve others, and never thought of
self. Many are the kindly deeds and
little gifts made by her own fingers
that are now treasured mementoes.

church here of her faith, she was a

Pilgrims landed on a "rock bound
shore" with no greeting but the war
whoop of the. red man, and the
Finns nd Swedes arrive at a well
populated coast, but lonely, too, for
crowds are as unfriendly as solitudes.*
The Pilgrims were influenced by-la
desire for spiritual freedom but the
immigrants of today by a desire fm .
citizenship in a free country, and, a
chance to make a livelihood.without*

wearing her full dress, uniform." The- .
white birches stand like painted mile \
posts against the dense green, and
the golden leaves pf the slim white, j

itself. The trail was covered with au
tumn leaves and their dry crackle
under our feet was the Only sound .
that pierced the absolute stillness of
the forest, except now and then the
rustle of the frightened partridg?s .
mistaking us for hunters. It -seemed,
"as though all Nature was holding; -
its breath." Before the trail had end- .
ed the sun was setting in the west \
with, all the brazen splendor of ? ,
On the edge' of the forest we '
came upon a small farm house, sur- '
rounded by a rail fence. On stopping ]
to .prepare our supper, we always go '
to the nearest farm house for a buck? -i
et. of water. I remarked as I c?amr?*

Finnish home, especially in so un- '
ceremonious a fashion.
In asking for water we felt like <
the American soldiers must have felt ?
in France, asking for a drink if they <
did not know the French ^vord for 1
water. The Finnish woman came to
the door and carried on a prolonged |
conversation in what might have (
been Japanese or Hindu for all I (
knew. We looked at her, arid drank
it all in, not doubting for a moment j
that what she said was true. Then
we held our bucket up and started :
to drink water in pantomine, when ,
the little boy about seven years of
age, playing in the yard, approached
and spoke to us in perfect English.
Using him as an interpreter, we fi
nally made the woman understand,
and the three of us, my friend, the ?
Finnish woman and I, set out over (
more rail fences and through a pas- (
ture full of formidable looking cows, i
to the spring, about a quarter of a j
mile away. She carried,us to another j
farm house inhabited by Finns or ?
! Swedes who knew\ a little English. ,
I We asked the man of the family to ]
thank our benefactress for us, since
we had no way of assuring her of our ,
heartfelt appreciation. <

It is estimated that the average
man loses three days time each year
from inability to work on account of
having a cold. Much of this loss can
be avoided by treating every coldr as

Remedy has won a wide reputation
and immense sale by its cures of this

Elaborate Shower For Miss
The pretty, old Tompkins reti-?

one of the most elaborate parties of
this very gay season when Mrs. Hugh
Mitchell and Miss Marjorie Tompkins
entertained on Tuesday afternoon,
October 19th, at a linen shower for

Are You a Good Husband?
Do you want to know whether you
ire a good husband or not? Do you
aften wonder when your wife kneels
iown to say her prayers at night
whether she is thanking God for hav
ing bestowed you upon her as a life
partner or beseeching the 'Lord to
rive her grace and strength to en
dure you? If you do check yourself
by these points:
Do you treat your wife with the
courtesy and consideration that you
show to any strange woman whom
you happen to meet at ? dinner par
ty? You have quite a reputation
among th2 ladies for being gallant
and chivalrous. Do you keep that line
of conduct for society, or do you
hand it out also at home?
Do you remember your wife's birth
lay and the anniversary of your
marriage, without having to be re
minded of'these august occasions?
And when you are reminded do you
throw a few dollars into her lap and
tell her to get something for a pres
s?t, for you don't know what she
wants? Before you were married,
you thought her little fancies impor
tant enough to recollect. Do you oc
casionally bring her a bunch of vic
let, a box of candy, or the book she
has said she would like to read, just
to show her that you are thinking of
W?ien put an absurd valuation
on little attentions, and a very few
of them planted along the matrimo
nial road make it a primrose path to
a woman, instead of a track through
an arid desert.
. How do you talk to your wife? Do
you speak to her in a manner that
you7would not dare to use to a man
of your own size and weight? Do you
sneer at her opinions and tell her
that she doesn't know what she is
talking about, and call her a fool?
Do you yawn in the midst of her
stories, and remind her that they are
ancient chestnuts and that she al
Do you knock everything that she
ways misses the pbint of a joke any
does and enlarge with brut?l candor
on her faults and weakness?
Did you cease telling her that you
loved her on your honeymoon, and
has it been years and years since
you showed her the least particle of
affection, or given any visible sign
that you cared for her?
Women don't shed their sweet
tooth when they^ get, married, you
know, and a wife craved affection
from her husband ten times as much
as she did from a sweetheart. When
she was a girl there were plenty of
men to pay her compliments and
make love to her,vbut marriage nar
rows her visible supply of sentimen
tal bonbons down to one possible giv
er, *and if he withholds them, he
starves her heart to death.
Do you ever show your wife any
appreciation? The life of the aver
age married woman is a life sentence
at hard labor with mighty little pay.
It is one never-ending round of
cooking and washing, cleaning, sew
ing, and sick nursing, and baby tend
ing, and scrimping and saving, and
the only thing in the world that can
make it worth while for her hus
band to show that he appreciates her
and that he is grateful'to her for all
that slie does for him and his.
How many times a year do you tell
your wife that she is the most won
derful little woman in the world,
and the greatest manager, and the
best cook, and that you think that
your guardian angel must have been
working over ;timeSjyhen she made
up her mind to accompany you to the
Funny creatures, women. They
put great stress on words and any
one pf" them will cheerfully work her
fingers to the bone for a man-and
be glad to do it, if he will only kiss
her hand and tell her how he thanks
her for all she does for him.
Do you ever do any particular
thing to make your wife happy? Or
are you one of the men who think
that just being married to him is joy
ride enough through life for anyHvb
man. The treadmill is no pore mo
notonous than the daily round of ex-,
istence for the woman who spends
her hand and tell her how he thinks
of her home doing the same never
ending round of tasks.
Do you realize this and devise little
treats for your wife? Do you go with
her occasionally to places of enter
tainment without having to be drag
ged there, fighting and protesting?
Do you take her out to the theatres
or the movies on your own accord
now and then? Do you sometimes
spend a holiday in taking care of the
baby and the children and let her
have.? da-y"^f,.reaLirecdom to-be*
How do you act at home? Are you
a grouch or a ray of sunshine? Are
you one of the men who dump down
upon their family all of the nerves,
and irritability and temper and
swearing that they did not expend
upon their clients, or customers, or
boss? When you put your key in the
lock at night,- do your wife and chd
di*en conje .running to meet you or do
they groSv suddenly silent and tim
Do you sit up silent as a dummy
behind your paper, or are you chatty
and chummy with your wife and
children'.' Do you growl like a bear
when your wife asks you if you have
heard any news during the day, or
do you try to be entertaining and the
life of the party, as you are outside
,A woman can't make a happy
home by herself. That's a two-hand
ed job. Nor can she carry on a con
versation by herself, though many
wives acquire the monologue habit
of trying to break the awful silence
that pervades, where the man of the
house feels that home is the place in
which to gloom.
How do you act about money? Do
you go fifty-fifty with your wife, or
make her feel when the bills come in
as if she were a criminal ,who had
devoured every particle pf food and
monopolized all of the light and heat,
and was generally responsible for the
high cost of living? Do you gjve your
wife a personal allowance as her
right or make her come like a beg
gar to you for every penny?
Check over these little items of
conduct and you will have a pretty
good idea of how you stand with
your wife, and what she's telling the
Recording Angel about you.

Miss Parker Entertains With
Tuesday afternoon at four o'clock
Miss Helen Tillman was the'honor
guest at a lovely party and miscella
neous shower given by Miss R?sela
Parker at her home on Columbia.
_ Everything was productive of hap
piness and mirth, and the colors,
pink and white lent a charm to every
face and costume.
The color scheme in every room
was seemingly in combination to add
youth to those who had bade it
goodbye and to make more lovely,,
the already beautiful.
The hostess, Miss Parker and Mrs.
Leslie Kernaghan greeted the guests
at the door and two flowerets in pink
and white/ little Beulah Lee and
Margaret Asbill met the happy com
ers and presenter them with lovely
favors tied with white ribbon and1
on one side the afternoon musical
program. The guests entered the ?eft
room and were registered by Mrs.
LaGrone and Miss Virginia Addison.
Here the lovely table was decorated
in .pink and white roses and mints of
the same color.
Across the hall the merriment con
strained each one to hurry that they
might not miss-a moment of the
gayety to be afforded by contact
"with congenial companionship.
The program was, first a piano
solo, "Love's Golden Dream," Miss
Violin solo, "I Love You Truly,"
Miss Annie Wilson, accompanied on
the piano by Miss Ruth Lyon. ~_

Ransford, with piano accompaniment

gifts. The plane was a real one of
diminutive size and bore beautiful
presents for the bride to be. One of
the entertaining features of the af
ternoon was the reading of ways by
which husbands may be most easily
managed. The consensus of opinion
was to let them think they are having
their own way, and one even went
so far as to say, let him have the

Negroes Held Under Serious -
Four negroes have been commit
ted to jail from Johnston under a
very serious charge, one which if
proven,should cause them to receive
the maximum sentence under the
law. It is alleged that the negroes
wrote threatening letters to the own
ers of three public ginneries in that
vicinity notifying them to shut down
their gins. Such outlawry has appear
ed in several other States in the Cot
ton Belt but this is the first appear
ance in this county, and it is the wish
of the people that all such persons,
white or colored, be dealt with to the
fullest extent of the law. The people
of Edgefield county will not tolerate
such acts of lawlessness and those
who are so depraved as to resort to
means that will make an already bad
situation worse had as well under
stand it now". If the men who are
now in jail are guilty, and we under
stand that the circumstantial evi
dence is strong, they should be pun
ished according to the degree of the
Death of Rev. A. E. Cornish.
Charleston, Oct., 15.-The death
of the Rev. A. E. Cornish which oc
curred Tuesday night at an infirm
ary here, after an illness of two
weeks, came as a shock and brought
general grief to this community. Mr
Cornish was widely beloved and la
bored for many years as an Episcopal
rector in thi? city and vicinity. He
was about 5 9years of age and is
survived by his widow, whom he mar
ried a few weeks ago; three daugh
ters, and a son. He was'rector of St.
John's church and chaplain of the
Church of the Redeemer and the
Harriott Pirckney Home for Sea
men. The funeral was held this morn- ?
ing, with interment in the James Is
land Episcopal church yard.
In the years gone by Rev. Mr.
Cornish served Trinity Episcopal
church in Edgefield as rector and was
greatly beloved here. The announce
ment of his death saddened many
of his former parishioners and many
old friends in Edgefield.
