ISucc?s? Without Money. -
^Unfortunately, a considerable
amber of people measure success
aly by the yard-stick of dollars and
mts.- If a man has amassed a for
me, his life is pronounced ? suc
?ss, and if he has gathered about
im but little wealth his life has been
miserable failure, according to the
jan dard cf some.
'Thc recent ending of ? useful and
rilliant career in Columbia contra
ints such a statement. The lamented
r. Babcock's life was a success. Few
ten achieved-more in their ctiosen
eld- cf activity than did this man of
reat mind and great soul. Yet Dr.
?abcock did not amass a fortune. His
state was estimated to be worth
25,000. Had he made the amassing
f wealth the chief end of life, he
ould have accumulated a fortune ten
Lines that amount. He 'had practical
j a monopoly in this section in his
pecialty and he could have exacted
irge sums from unfortunate mer
nd women. But he did not. Doubt
?SS he said, as other great men have
aid, "I haven't time to make money."
But why should any man be puffed
ip over his ability to make money?
Lfter all, it is not a high order ol
aient. Frequently the most unlet
ered man can "drive a bargain" anc
ake in the shekels more successful
y than men who are equipped foi
Away with the false standard thal

TO ESSIE MAY SCOTT
(By Mrs. J. M. W. Glover)
Quite a fortnight now has sped
away, leaving in the home of H. H.
Scott a void, so big, so empty that
not all that India's treasure holds
fill the dreary ache.
The voice cf the most unselfish
(after the dear Christ) is no longer
heard even in echo, for the dark, un
fathomable eui Lain of death has low
ered upon the once love giving moth
er forai of Essie May Scott, she who
in the days gone by, was a wellsprnig
of sunshine and unselfishness, who
brightened the old plantation home
of the widely known and well-to-do
William Mays, in the hospitable
township of Meriwether, Edgefield.
The happy friend of all who knew
her, the helpful, thoughtful mother
who never wearied in her untiring
love for her only son Judson and
daughter, Mrs. Lawrence, but reach
ed out to the adopted son George
Spires with kindly affection and who
returned with loving thoughtfulness
her devoted care.
As the hours become days and the
golden light of coming weeks speed
on their way, the religion of Essie
Scott reached beyond the gray lightt
of hope defsrred to the straight but
narrow road whose way she trod, pa
tiently, smilingly, trustingly through
the dark and- the light never ques
tioning the how' or why, but doing
her best, believing that some day she
would reach Him bye and bye. And
so as life is of God the leaves of our
rose of existence fall and fade, each
petal a thought of the dear one de
parted, and we mourn the rose that
is dead, but through fyie shroud of
the withering leaves a tiny bright
spot is seen and the winter of despair
fades swift as the spring draweth
near, and so in the heart the tiny
bright spot is the hope of God planed
in each life, and the change of our
dear one, serves but to lift us up
higher and through the mist of sor
row, we joy in the faith that guides
us upward to God and to our loved
To Essie: The winter of your life
is past; The eternal sunshine of eter
nal spring is yours. ;
Somewhere above on some beauti
ful shore, the night is spent and you
rest forevermore. -Augusta Chron

Death of Mrs. Henry Green.
Wednesday afternoon the long life
of Mrs. Henry Green was brought
to a peaceful close at the home of her
daughter, Mrs M. B. Hamilton. Being
in her 81st year, her life passed out
like a flickering taper. God had spar
ed her to her friends and loved ones
for a long period and now called her
up higher/ She was a devout Chris
tian woman whose influence, especial
ly in y . younger and more active
years, was always a force for good..
Mrs. Green was one ?f the constit
uent members of Berea church, all
of whom have passed over the river
except Mrs. Jane Harling, who with
her lamented husband gave the site
for the church. In her forgatfulness
of self, Mrs. Green was never happier
than when she was making some one
else happy. During her declining
years she received the most devoted
attention in the home of her daught
er, everything possible being done
for her comfort and pleasure. Be
sides Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs. Green is
survived by another daughter, Mrs.
William Hart, a daughter of her first
marriage. The funeral was held at Be
rea church Thursday afternoon, be
ing conducted by Rev. H. B. White,
Rev. P. P. Blalock, and Rev. Mr.
Brooke, and the interment took place
in the Berea cemetery.
