DEATH OF AN AGED LADY.
Mrs. E. Jane Reeder Passes Away at
Home of Her Son in Golumbia.
Interment at Bush River.
Mrs. E. Jane Reeder, who was well
known to a large number of people
in the town and county of Newberry, i
died in Columbia on Friday, where
she was living with her son., Mr.
James C. Reeder. Mrs. Reeder was!
a little more than 77 years of age.
Her body was brought to Newberry
on Saturday afirnoon. A short fu
neral seryice was held; at the resi
dence of Mr. Cannon G. Blease on
Sunday morning and the interment
was had at the grave yard of Bush
River Baptist church, the deceased
for many years being a member of
that church and a resident of that
community. The services were con
ducted by Rev. Geo. A. Wright, pas
tor of the First Baptist churph, of
which Mrs. Reeder was a niember,
assisted by Rev. M. L. Banks, pastor
of the Central Methodist eliurch.
The deceased was the widow of
William D. Reeder, who died more
than thirty years ago. All of Mrs.
Reeder's children-, except Mr. J. C.
Reeder, preceded her to the grave.
Besidsthe son who was living withI
her in Columbia, she leaves a sister,
Mrs. Elizabeth F. Blease, and three
grandchildren, Messrs. Reeder, Clar
ence and Ernest McElveen, to miss
the mellowed inuuences exerted over
loved ones in the family circle by the
old member of the home who has
reached the distant mile-post in the
journey of life to shed a halo and
leave hallowed memories for those
left behind in the struggle and bat
tle of living. And thus another. de
parted soul has taken its' everlasting
flight, and one more grave , is newly"
maide and numbered among t9e fresh
mounds of young wives and husbands
and others to add to the glooin of the
solemn hush that surrounds us and
-bids us pause in. the mad rush and
reflect that "in the midst of life we
are in death."
Notes From Allendale.
By Rev. J. W. Wolling.
No dbubt some of the friends in

Allendale is at the junction of the
Southern Railway with the Carolina

The-Lyric Glee Club.
The Lyric -Glee Club, the fifth
number of the Lyceum Course, will
give a concert in Holland Hall, Feb-;
mary 16th, at 8:30 p. -m. We unhesi
tatingly say that this is by far .he
best musical attraction of the season.
Their singing is of the highest 3rder.
The instrumental music and readings
are also 9f high class.
The managers of the Lyric Glee
clab have this to say:
"In presenting the- club we do so
with the confidemee born of the
knowledge that no male quartetta in
the Lyceum field has attained a more
enviaible reputation as a company oi
cultured and charming singerk. T.iey
are known from coast to coast as one
of the strongest and most popular
musical organizations in America.
There are two readers in the compa
ny and sketches will be given, read
ings in costume, and the. bass. quar
tette will be-one of- the strong fea
tures. As a singing organization, the
Lyrics cannot be surpassed."
The Lyric Glee clab appeared in
Laurens a few nights ao. The uni
versal4eport is-that it was the best
musical attraetion Laurens has had
for a number of years and they have
already engaged these men for next
season if it is possible for them to
Aside from the quartette work,
two favorite features are the deep
rich basso solos of Tom Polk and the
artistic trombone solo work' of Mr.
Doolittle. Mr. Covert is tenor and
dute soloist. . Mr. Hendry second
tenor, cornet soloist and reader. Mr.
Doolittle is Baritone, trombone so
oist and pianist. ~Mr. Tom Polk is
basso, reader and manager.
This is the best musical of - the
eourse and is one of the. very strong
est companies of its ,kind on the
platform. We urge all who are in
the least interested in vocal music,
instrumental inusic and readings to
attend this concert.
Perso4p not holding season tick
ts will be charged the usual general
admission ab'the door. Please bring
