Died in Columbia, S. C., April 12,
1906, John Adam Kinard, son of Mr.

remains were taken to Fairfield coun

of which church his parents were
members. The deceased was born
November 6, 1897. Thus has passed
from earth to heaven one of the
brightest and sweetest children we
Shave ever known. Johnnie was en
dowed by nature as few children are.
He possessed a rare degree of intelli
gence. He had a kind and affection
ate disposition that made him a pet
and a favorite with all who knew him.
It is sad thus to see a life cut short
that promises so much-to see a bud
plucked before we were permitted to
look upon the flower, beautiful and
full-grown-to see a harp broken be
fore we were permitted to enjoy its
delightful music; but God's ways are
not our ways. Hie knoweth best. He
knoweth when to gather the buds and
flowers. We will not murmur at our
loss but look to Him who hath said:
''I am the resurrection and the life,"
confidently believing that he will one
day reunite us with the loved and lost.
At no better time could he have r'ob
bed us of our darling treasure.
''Ere sin could blight or sorrow fade,
Death came with friendly care,
The opening bud to heaven conveyed,
And bade it blossom there.''
CONSTABLES ASKED FOR.
The Law Enforced In City But Help
Needed In the Rural Districts
Some weeks ago the citizens of
Prosperity requested the governor to
send a constable to that community to
assist in the enforcement of the law
against selling whiskey and one was
sent. The Herald and News has here
tofore called attention to the fact
that the illicit selling of whiskey
since the voting out of the dispensary
has been transferred from the incor
porated towns to the rural districts.
So 'far as the town of Newberry is
concerned, the city authorities are
watchful and have been enforcing the
law very vigilantly, and whenever
any violators were found the fine im
posed has been sufficient to make an
impression upon them that would not
be temporary. The following corres
pondence is self explanatory.
Of course under the law the one
half mill tax will be levied whether
it is used in paying the expenses of
constables or not.
Newberry, S. C., April 16, 1906.
Hon. D. C. Heyward,~Governor,
Columbia, S. C.
Dear Sir:-After conferring with
a number of those who led in 'the op
position to the dispensary in this
county, and who are in favor of law
and order,- I am writing to ask that
you send constables to this county to
enforce the law against the illicit
traffic in liquor. The law is enforced
in the town of Newberry, but not in
the country and smaller towns.
It is bootless to argue whether the
law is more openly violated now than
under the dispensary system, for what
the county needs is an enforcement of
the law now. ^And it has become clear
enough that the law will not be en
forced outside of the towns unless
constables or other officers are -ap
pointed for that special duty, and un
less the officials so appointed are in
sympathy with the law. For my own
part, I am in favor of enforcing the
law against the whiskey traffic in this
county, if it takes every dollat of the
half mill tax.
I am aware that from the nature of
the case you cannot have persona)
knowledge of the character and in
linations of the constables, but you
will pardon me for suggesting that we
hope that Mr. Hammett will do his
best to give us men who will do their

My Dear Doctor :-I am iir receipt
of yours of the 16th instant, and con
tents carefuly noted.
-Some little time ago, upon the re
quest of the intendant and wardens
of the town of Prosperity, in .your
county, I instrnicted Chief Hamnmett
to send a constable thers; and I un
derstand he is now stationed in and
I appreciate very much the tone of
your letter, and in reply beg -to say
that I will use every means in- my
power to have the law enforced fair
ly and impartially in Newberry. You
will perhaps remember that I recoin
mended in my last niessage to the
general assembly that the constables
be appointed by local authorities and
that they be placed under local con
trol. The legislature did not see, fit
to adopt my recommendation, and
now all I can do is to do the best 1
can under the circumstances.
It is very hard for one at a distance
to judge of the number -of -constables
satisfactory work, I will be very glad
glad at any time to receive your
views and advice in this matter.
I will talk over the situation with
Mr. Hammett; and if at any time the
men sent to your county are not doing
satisfactory work, I will be very glad
indeed to be informed of it.
Again thanking you for your let
ter, believe me,
Very truly yours,

A more ideal day for an Easter
tide wedding could not have dawned
than that of Saturday the 21st, when
Miss Elizabeth Legare Simmons be
eame the bride of Mr. Charles Rivers
Stone. The marriage was solemniized
at the home of the bride's mother,
Mrs. Joshua Wardl Motte Simmons
in Calhoun street. a beautiful and im
pressive ceremony being performed
by Rev. J. L. Williamson, of the
Presbyterian church. It was a per
feet home wedding in every detail.
The entire lower floor was darken
ed and numberless wax candles lent
their soft radiance to the scene. The
reception hall carried out a pink color
scheme and was lighted with pink
candles in old fashioned silver cande
labra. The drawing room where the
ceremony was performed was in white
and green. Graceful bamboo,vines en
twined the pictures and window crev
ices and the mantel was banked with
snow balls. A bay window was con
verted into a veritable bower with
ferns and cut flowers for the bridal
party, and from the middle of the
bamboo draped arch was suspended a
shower bouquet. of snow balls tied
with uhite tulle.
Promptly at 11 o'clock the bride
zroom attended by his brother, Mr.
Eugene Stone as best man, entered to
the strains of Mendelsshon's wedding
march, beautifully rendered by Miss
Laura Bowman. Then came Miss Mil
Ired Simmons as maid of honor,
wearing a becoming gown of soft
white mull. She carried white car
nations tied with white tulle. Pre
ceding the bride came two cunning
litle flower girls, Misses Sarah Sim
mons and Margaret McIntosh, in
dainty white frocks with dresden
sashes. The bride, tall and graceftil,
was gowned in white liberty satin,
princess effect witfi bertha of real
loniton lace. . Her ornaments were
pearls and she carried an armful of
Easter lilies, tied with white tulle. A
filmy veil falling in natural folds com
pleted her toilette. She entered on
the arm of her brother, Mr. Ward
Immediately after the ceremony a
delicious wedding breakfast was
served. The bride's table was most
artistic with handsome lace pieces
and decorations of smilax, ferns and
white carnations. Several bunches of
these .flowers were suspended high
over the table, long tulle streamers
extending to the corner's of the table
where they were caught in fluffy bows
with carnations and asparagus ferns.
The candelabra used on the table were
the possessions of the . great grand
mothers on both sides of the family.
The presents were numerous anid
bandsome, and bespoke of the bride's
ppularity both at home and -else
