Dinner at Perry Halfacre's-.
Communion at Colony.
Slighs, S. C , January 4, 1904.
Christmas passed off very quietly
throughout this section. No acci
dents happened, except that a ne
gro, Jeff Ruff, who lives on Dr.
Hunter's place, got his hand badly
toni up by the explosion of a gun.
Mrs. Nancy C.. Wise, wife of Mr.
P. L. Wise, died at her home or
Saturday night, the 26th, aged 34
years, 2 months and 16 days. Hei
infant babe had precededt her to tle
spirit land just a few weeks previom
to her death. Her remains wer<
laid to rest in Colony graveyard or
Monday following her death, hei
pastor, the Rev. P. H-. R. Derrick,
conducting the funeral services.
Mrs. Wise was a member of Bach
nian Chapel church, and her whok
life was a lif'e of peace and (uiietude.
She leaves a husband, one sister,
two half brothers, two half sistern
and a step-mother to mourn her de
parture. They have our deepesi
Anong my Christmas enjoyment,
was to accept an invitation to a
turkey dinner at the home of my
neighbor and friend, Mr. Perry

Henry H.alfacre, in the spring of

Any one who eats a dinner pre
pared by Mrs. Halfacre will no
wonder why her husband is so larg<
But, to go back to the relic, thi:
old dish, which is serving its tliirt
generation, notwithstanding it ha:

a hundred years, has not lost it;
