For she's not for sale or to loan;

completed the work down on thfe

completing this road he will n'ext

cooperation of the citizens of the
community, >Mr. Edmunds has put

Good Game of Ball.
The baseball team of the Edgefield
High School played the first game of
the season in Aiken Friday after
noon, bringing away the scalp of the
Aiken team. The score stood 8 to 7
in favor of our boys. Hurrah for
them! They are a fine, manly set and.
will make a good record this season,
both in score and as fair, high-mind
ed young athletes. v
. The line-up of the High School
team is as follows: Theodore Ai-thur,
manager and catcher; Robert Gray,
pitcher; Amos Moore, first base; Wil
liam Hughes, second base; Dixon
Timmerman, 'third base; Rhae Tim-;
merman, short stop; Earl Arthur, left
field; Clyde Arthur, center field and
John Wells, right field.
Prof. Tatum is taking a great in
terest in the team and encourages
them in every possible way. Their
new basebal: uniform is attractive.
A Tribute to Mrs. Samantha
A Mother of Israel has gone to her
reward. Mrs. Samantha Green was
born about five miles above Edgefield
village on the 27th day of October,
1841.- In early life she united with
the Stevens Creek Baptist church, of
which she remained for many years a
consistent member. In 1888 when the
church at Berea was organized she
with her husband removed their mem
bership and became charter members
of the same.
She was married on January 1st,
i861 to Newton Chiles Harling. Soon
after the marriage Mr. Harling re
sponded to the call of his country and
enlisted in the Confederate army,
and was killed at the battle of Chat
tanooga on September 20, 1863.
Of this mariage one child was
born, who in after years became Mrs.

sketch became the bride of the late
Henry Green who became a conspic

Haying been Mrs.. Green's pastor
for more than 17 years I learned to
know and value her. By nature she
was gentle, refined and poetic and
her life was one long beautiful poem.
I have re?d with pleasure verses writ
ten by her which expressed senti
ments and tender. But the
crown feature of her existence was
her religion. Never in my experience
have I known a more practical ex
ample of Christianity; her daily life
and walk seemed to be with God. In
my long association with the family
I have never heard one harsh word
fall from her lips; she was never
known to criticise or speak evil of
When her son, when taken away in
the very bloom of youth, was missed
so terribly by us all, her heart seem
ed lonely and she wept bitter tears
but not one murmur was heard.
In life she possessed both the
characteristics of Mary and Martha.
Like Martha she prided herself on
her domestic affairs, and it was her
joy to serve her friends, preparing
good things to eat and making them
welcome and comfortable. Like Mary
she enjoyed the one thing needful,
and it was her pleasure to be present
at all church services, and to enjoy
the kingdom of God and His right
