BACHMAN CUAPdL LETTER.
Death of Mrs. P. L. Wise -An Enjoyable
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, excFt that a ne
gro, Jeff Ruff, who lives on Dr.
Hunter's place, got his hand badly
torn up by the explosion of a gun.
Mrs. Nancy C.. Wise, wife of Mr.
P. L. Wise, died at her home on
Saturday night, the 26th, aged 34
years, 2 months and x6 days. Her
infant babe had preceded her to the
spirit land just a few weeks previous
to her death. Her remains were
laid to rest in Colony graveyard on
Monday following her death, her
pastor, the Rev. P. H. E. Derrick,
conducting the funeral services.
Mrs. Wise was a member of Bach
man Chapel church, and her whole
life was a life of peace and quietude.
She leaves a husband, one sister,
two half brothers, two half sisters
and a step-mother to mourn her de
parture. They have our deepest
Among my Christmas enjoyments
was to accept an invitation to a
turkey dinner at the home of my
neighbor and friend, Mr. Perry
Halfacre, on Tuesday, the 29th of
December. Just before dinner Mr.
Halfacre showed us a dish which
was bought by his grandfather,
Henry lalfacre, in the spring of
1SO3, wlen he first weIt to house
k'eepin. It w the,-1 boulgit and

occasion, fo you certainly missed
one of the best dinners of your life.
Any one who eats a dinner pre
pared by Mrs. Halfacre will not
wonder why her husband is s large
But, to go back to the relic, this
old dish, which is serving its third
generation, notwithstanding it has
been in continual use foi more than
a htndred years, has not lost its
beauty. The flowers on its face
look as fresh and natural as if
placed there only a short while ago.
The day was spent very pleasantly
with this kind family and I trust
that it may he my privilege to meiet
with again in like manner. To
say that Col. D). A. Ruff and Maj.
Ben H-alfacre were there is only
sayig that it added more to the
fun an p11lleasure of the diay. Perry
Hal facre is one among our best
neighblors and citizens, and to mueet
each one of his children is a plain
evidence of wvhat I say, for they
show that they have heeni broughlt
tip under good discipline.
There was communion service
at Colony church last Sunday. The
day was very cold, which made the
congregation comparatively small.
Our new pastor, Rev. R. E. Liv

from iCorinthians i:9. The sub)
