TO PREVENT DISEASE.
Dr. C. T. Wyche Will Discuss This'
Meeting to be at Newberry.
The Couniy Medical Society. coi
posedi tfilbe phican- .f Newberry
countV. hlsi( mon2thlyI meet ing.s aliter
natin between Newber1Y and Pro".
peritv for these meetin s. The pur
pose of the physicians is a -good one
and they discuss diseases and their
treatment as well as get in closer
social touch with one another. and
apart from being pleasant, the meet
ings are instructive.
At the last meeting. which was held
at Prosperity, it was decided that the
next meeting should be a public one,
and it will he held in the Chamber
of Commerce rooms at Newberry on
Friday. August 9. At this meeting
Dr. C. T. Wyehe, of Prosperity, will
read a paper on the prevention of
diseases. Dr. Wyehe hopes to make
this paper not simply a technical pa
per for the information of the pro
fessional men, who may be present,
but a cleat and simple paper, which
may be understood and. appreciated
by the laymen.
Dr. Wyche has given considerable
thought to this subject, and has been
very much interested in the pure food
laws and secured the passage at the
last sessio onf the legislature of the
pure food law in this state.
It will be remembered that during
the campaign last year he would
touch upon the importance of, pre
venting diseases showing his deep in
terest in the subject.
The ladies are especially invited to
attend bhis public meeting of the
County Medical Society.
Dr. P. G. Ellisor is the president
of this society and Dr. W. E. Pelham,
Jr., the secretary.
Mr. Thomas M. Neel, who lives just
one mile west of. the city, has just
threshed 554 bushels of oats besides
having fed from the oats during the
time since harvest began, and leaving
a. sufficient quantity unthreshed .to
feed until harvest time comes again.
The yield is about 50 bushels per acre.
Mr. Neel has also about twenty-eikht
acres: on this small farm upon which
he resides, of as fine corn as was ever
grown in this ection..
Mr. John Henry Chappell also has
about sixteen acres of fine corn in
this same community. Mr. Chappell 's
corn is especially fine, though not
quite as large a body.
Mr. Ohappell e.xpects to gather
about seventy-five lbushels from each
acre. The Herald and News has a
photograph of the field, and hopes to
present the picture in one of the is
sues next week. The truth of the
matter is, even the farmers themsel
ves admit, that this year they have
one of the best corn erops ever grown
in this state, and in a great many
cases the eorn is made and remains
only to be harvested.
A. R. P. Services.
On next Sabbath there will be
preaching at' King's Creek at 11 a.
m. and at Cannon's Creek at 4 p. in.,
and at Prosperity at 8.30 p. m.
In Memory of Hugh Merril Daven
The Angel of Death visited our
home one year ago today and took
Merrill, July 29, 1906. Aged 17 years,
1 month and 1 day.
Farewell, Merrill, but not forever,
There will be a glorious dawn;
We s'hall meet .to part-no never!
On the resurrection morn.
Tho' thy darling form lies sleeping
In the cold and silent tomb,
Thou shalt have a glorious waking
When the blessed Lord doth come.
Thy gentle voice now is hushed,
Thy warm, true heart is still,
And on thy young and innocent brow,
Is resting death's cold chill.
Thy hands are clasped upon thy
We have kissed thy lovely brow,
And in our aching hearts we know,
We have no darling now.
We have lost our darling Merrill,
He has bid us all adieu;
He has gone to live in Heaven,
And his form is lost to view.
Oh, that dear one, how we loved him,
Oh, how hard to give 'him up!
But an angel came down for him
And removed him from our flock.
Peaceful by thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in thy grave so low;
Thou no more will join our number.
Thou no more our sorrows know.
et agaizn we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled,
And in heaven with joy to greet thee.
Where no farewell tears are shed.
