Exercises preparatory to a.joyous two

held in the city schools last Friday.

and by which one of tho finest lessons
of Mfo were taught.-lhatthere is moro
real joy and true happiness in giving
than in receiving. Quite a number of

children did well, each enteriug with

better and been bappici had the pa

being taught that was intended to
shape the thoughts of every boy and

and tho girl a nobler woman. It was a
lesson in love, faith, memory, soi vice,

Tho deceased was Miss Eliznbeth
Williamson, daughter of Beubon Wil

Billie Nevitt. She was a native of An
derson County and graduate from the
old Johnson Female University of this
city. In June of 1057 she was married
to T. J. Webb, who for BO many years
served this county as Auditor. Six
children were boru to this happy cou

ert C. and Wm. M. Webb. May 4th,
1880, was the birthday of the deceased,
making her 08 years old. From her
girlhood she was a devout member of
the Baptist Church, and her useful
bapyy life was characterized by the
beautiful attributes of Him whom she
professed to know and love when a
child, tho blessed Saviour.
This noble woman sn ile red much
from ill health for several years past.
About four years ago she found it ne
cessary to enter tho Johns Hopkins
hospital in Baltimore. She returned
after a brief stay feeling assured that
she was fully recovered, but last spring
her health failed again and in October
oho made a second visit to Baltimore.
This time she was told nothing could
bo done that would be of permanent
benefit, and she returned home to pa
tiently wait tho will of the Muster.
With meekness, patience and perfect
trust she boro her sufferings, and when
death came it was like tho flickering of
a spent candle. In death she wears a
peaceful smile, whilo the marble fea
tures retain much of that remarkable
beauty that characterized her in the
youthful years of life.
The funeral services have not been
fully decided upon by the fntnily, but
they will most likely bo held Friday,
notice of which will be given.
