But sweetly. gently.
He passed away
From the world's dim twilight
'To endless day.'
It is hard for Edgefield to realize
that Col. James T. Bacon, the loved,
the admired, the benefactor of all, has
passed a way.
Only a few days since. as he lay
on his bed of suffering, lie gazed lov
ingly into the eyes of his sister. who
was dearer to him than aught else on

"You and I have gone hand in hand

In the peaceful grave they have laid
him to rest--in the village cemetery,
near his sainted mother, Mrs. Sarah
Agnes Wigfall, who died a few years
ago, and close beside the resting place
of his grandmother. It seemed like
giving 'him back to the arms that had
cradled and caressed him. He never
we,.ied speaking of their love and
goodness to him. His face would
soften, his voice tremble, when he re
corded incidents of boyhood's days,
and his great love and devotion to
.hese noble women. Not as the wit,
not as the journalist, not as the bril
liant editor. will the memory of James
T. Bacon linger longest in. the village
to which he gave his life, but as the
helper of the helpless, the comforter
of the afflicted, the uplifter of the
desolate, the support of the needy, the
widow, the fatherless. In his whole
career tiere was no thought of self,
only of what he could give or do for
When sojourning a few years ago
in Europe. surrounded by wealth ana
adulation, his letters home all breath
ed of loving devotion and a vearning
to shield them f.rom care and trouble.
His amusing letters,. written to The
News and Courier, describing New
York's subway, his ocean voyage, his
obseivations of Europeans, seintilated
with .a freshness and originality pe
culiarly 'his own, a quality lacking in
many world renowned humorists. The
editor of a New York daily copied an
article written1 by Mr. Bacon, describ
ing a party in Edgefield and added:
'The person who wrote that piece
ought to leave the small vi-llage of
Edgefield and come to New York,
where he would make a fortune.'' His
European letters always brought
tears of laughter to the eyes of the
readers. The same mail would bring
a letter with a foreign stamp to tie
home folks-so full of pathos-of
heart-sickness, to join the dear circle
that its pages would be blotted with
Artistic in every sense, Mr. Blacon
had a passion for music. He had
studied in Germany under famous
masters; his technique was thorough,
his execution faultless. He played
with the 'expression of one to whom
music was a soul's prayer.
One of his chief pleasures was gar
dening. His lilies and carnations
were beautiful, but his roses were like
the little children he petted atnd
gathered around him, the loveliest ever
seen. Among them he seemed like a
loving, dreaming boy; no traces of
age or suffering lined his brow, when
looking into the fair innocent' faces
of God's elildren.
A man w;ith his talents, his genius,
could have gone into the big world
and earried anl immortal name fo>r
himself on the tower of fame, but his
deep love for his own people made it
impossible for him to leave Edgefield.
He is sleeping now with the flow
ers he loved so well above him, but
his spirit will live forever in t'be
hearts of those who. knew him.
