The Death of a Good Woman and Her
The many friends ol Mr?. Ella Shirley,
the beloved wife o?' Mr. A. II. Shirley,
will regret to hear of her death, which
occurred on Wednesday, February 23d.
She was sick a Jong time and her death
was not unexpected to those who know
her best. She had that fatal disease, con
sumption. She was about seventeen
years old when she married and lived in
Newberry at; the time. Soon alter her
marriage she with her husband moved
to Piedmont, where she remained until
her death. She leaven a husband and
two small children..
But in their sorrow they .sorrow not as
those who have no hope, for their loss is
beaven's gain. She joined the Episcopal
Church when she was about eleven years
old and lived a consistent member until
her death. She bore her pain with
Christian patience; never murmured
nor complained. She told her friends a
little whde before she died she hud always
trusted in Jesus and was still trusting
Jesus. She was a loving wifo and a de
voted mother, a kind neighbor aud al
ways met everybody with a plea-ant
face. She was ono of those who never
spoke a harmful word of anybody. She
was about 27 years of age. Her remains
were interred in tho Piedmont Cemetery j
Her mother, Mrs. Sims, passed away
Monday preceding the daughter's death.
Last September she spent a month with
her daughter and ioft siek and never was
well again. She lived in Columbia at the

local theatre-goers tnat he has secured for
to morrow, Friday and Saturday nights,
the highly commended Frank B Rhodes
Merry Makers Co., one of the best modern
comedy repertoire organ zuioos now tour
iog this country. The Merry Makers are
composed of strictly first-class attists.
They produce farce comedy, comedy
drama'and pantomime as only artists in the
front ranks can, and anything that this
Company is announced to produce at any
of their performances can be relied upon
as being new, novel, refined and up to
date. The Merry Maker's have won for
themselves the highest praise from tbe
press aDd people of Columbia, S. C , At
lanta, Ga., Montgomery, Ala., and in fact
from every large city in which they have
appeared throughout the South. To mor
row night, tbe Company will open their
engagement here with the latest metro
politan melo drama success, ' The Heart
of Cuba," correctly portraying the life of
the Insurgent and bis battle for liberty.
Here is what tbe Atlanta Constitution, of
Feb. l?.h, says in part:
"'The Heart of Cnba,' a strong melo
drama, was put on last night at the Co
lumbia theatre by tbe Merry Mauere.
The play has some stirring scenes, and the
climaxea were weiland intelligently work
ed up. A good performance was given."
Daring the engagement of the Merry
Makers, popular prices will prevail. Seats

The sukjeot of this sketch was born in
Anderson County about tbe year 1845
and died at her home in Brushy Creek
Township Feb. 25, 1S9S. Her maiden
name was Maggie Stott. As her pastor
for tbe last two years, I can te-tlfv to her
Christlike spirit and life. Though deli
cate in health like the Master, who seemed
to f irget hi? own sufferings in the inter
est 0 e others, so was it m :he life of Hist or
Oats, ?oe seemed to live for others and
for tbe honor of Christ, whom she pub
licly claimed as her Savior twenty-five
years ago How often has her pastor felt
by her attendance at Church that he had
a personal help and hope in the life of
the deceased. She daily lived the gospel
of Christ. Early in life she put her chil
dren under the influence of the Sunday
school. Don btless as a result of this, the
oldest child, a boy only eleven years old,
gave his heart to God and was baptized
into the Easley Baptist Church last sum
mer. A little over two months ago the
family leftEasley and located nearCorinth
Church. But the short life sister Oats
lived among strangers was long enough
to convince her neighbors of the reality
of religion, for her new neighbors said
she was a Christian woman. In that
community, among strangers, she never
put her light under a bushel, but let it
shine out so that people recognized the
fact that she had been with Jesus. She
left a dear husband and one little son and
daughter, besides other relatives to mourn
her loss. Her funeral was preached on
Sunday from Rev. 14:13. "And I beard a
voice from heaven saying unto me:
Write, blessed are the dead which die in
the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the
spirit, that they may rest from their la
bors, and their works do follow them "
Bereaved ones, look not upon your
precions one as dead, but as one who is
now realizing tbe blessedness of that
promise Christ made to Martha, "Who
soever liveth and believoth in me shall
n?verdie." Her Pastor.

The Seaboard Air Lino Scores Another
TheSeabonrd Air Line has. for a long
time, contend-d that as it. could not get its
sUepors Month of Atlantic and north of
Washington, while other lines were allow
ed this privilege, it should, therefore, be
allowed a differential rate. This maltor
was t?ken up recently with the Southeast
ern Passenger Association, the Trunk
L?ne Association and the Association of
Virginia and the Carolinas, and the Sea
board Air Line's claim for differentials
The tariffs just published by the above
associations uhow standard facts by all
lines between the North and South as
well as the differential rate via the Sea
board Air L'ne. which rate is $3 less than
that shown by other lines. The standard
rate between New York and Atlanta is
$24 ; the differential rain via the Seahoard
Air Line is $21; the ratp between Wash
ington and Atlanta is $17.50 the differen
tial rate via the Spaooard Air Line is
$14.50. This differential applies between
ail important cKif-s in the (Southeastern
Passenger Association's territory, the
Trank Line Association territory.
The Seaboard Air Lire now has the
matter up with the New England Passen
gar Association, looking to th6 publishing
of these different rates in their tariffs As
soon as this is granted it is understood
that the Seaboard Air Line will then go to
the Mississippi Passenger Association
with a request that they oublish like rates
from their territory. When this is done
the Seaboard Air Line will bave a differ
ential on all bujiness which it is rorapeti

One More Murder in This State.
CHESTER, March 7.?Just one month
ago to-day, the murder of Capt. J. K.
Marshall was reported from this place
and another, not quite so foul, how
ever, has been committed here to-day.
This morning about 8 o'clock Henry
H. Marcus shot McDuffic Pastes three
times with a 38 Smith & Wesson,
once through the abdomen, then above
the hip, and lastly in the throat.
Estes lingered until 5:30 o'clock this
evening and died. Drs. Pry or and
McConnell waited upon the wounded
man and did everything in their power
to save him, but to no avail.
Estes was a sober, honest, indus
trious young man, of 23 years of age.
always attending to his business,
which he had built by hard licks from
a small fruit stand to a good-sized
grocery and beef market. Marcus
was also a sober, honest, hard-working
blacksmith, and was a very quiet
citizen. Both were neighbors, living
alongside of each other, each with
their families. Both were young,
well-to-do white men. They had had
several misunderstandings and dis
putes relating to their domesti? affairs,
but their differences were always set
tled amicably. Last Saturday night
a dispute arose over an account owed
Estes, and this culminated in this
terrible shooting affray, the result of
which is death. Marcus has been
lodged in jail, and claims he had to
shoot in self-defence. The coroner's
jury has just been empannelled, and
it will be impossible to report the
