Wife of Sheriff N. M. Buford Dies Af
ter Long Illness-Good Wo
Mrs. Sallie Boll Buford. wife
Sheriff M. M. Buford, died at aboiLt
10.1-5 o'clock Saturday morning at her
home in this city, after a linger
ing illness of tuberculosis, in the si\
tieth year of her age, and was buri-d
Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock at Fair
view church cemetery, service con
ducted by the Rev. D. P. Boyd, assisted
by the Revs. M. L. Banks and G. A.'
Mrs. 'uford was a member of Sar
dis ::reh. in L.:rens county. Siw
kept 7nr mrship in tat ch-ich
although frequently urged to change it,
after leaving the neighborhood, but.
she invariably answered that it was:
her desire to keep her membership
where her mother's was. She was
the daughter of the late James ai!
Polly Bell, of Laurens county. Mr.
M. M. Buford and Miss Sallie A. Bell
were married March 15, 1870. She was
a .devout Christian and had many fine
traits of character which endeared her:
to the hearts of all who knew her.
During the time of her long illness she
bore her trials with great patience and
meekness, exhibiting the strong forti
tude of a dying saint, prepared for
A good woman is dead. She "went
through the world living quietly, de
voted to the interests of those who
were dear to her, but she is missed
from her wonted place, her work is
done and she is gone." Much of the
latter part of her earthly life, due to
ill health, "was spent in the valiey,
beneath the clouds of suffering and
sorrow." Her long sickness and the
expected death which came to her re-:
lief, reminds one of the beautiful inci
dent "an Alpine traveller tells of
climbing one of the mountains in a
dense, dripping fog, and standing at
last in the clear air, under a cloudless
sky. In the valley below him lay the
fog like an ocean of white vapor, and
he could hear the chiming of bells, the
lowing of cattle, and the sounds of
labor coming up from the villages that
were hidden beneath. Now and then a
bird would dart up out of the mist, fly
about a little while in the joyous sun
shine, sing a few notes of sweet song,
and then fly down again and disap
pear." The subject of this sketch was
long in the valley. How like a bird
her released spirit has soared into the
radiant sunlight and disappeared in:
the unseen regions of eternal peace
and rest. A mother dies, and it has
been said by some writer that when
a gentle mother goes out of a home the
loss indeed seems irreparable. But
there comes this thought, as so tender
ly and truthfully breathed by Dr. J..
R. Miller in his Year Book: "Heaven:
Snot far away. One of the chariots'
-from the King's country came dowL;
that day to carry Elijah home. An
other came to the door of your house'
when the baby died, or when father or
mother or brother or sister died."
'To die? it is to rise
To fairer, brighter skies,
Where death no more shall his dread1
To soar on angel wings
Where life immortal springs,
For so he giveth his beloved sleep."
There is a cmofort in that and in
this: "One cold autumn day I saw an
empty bird's next on a tree. It looked
desolate and forsaken. But I kne N
the birds that once were there were
living yet, living no win the warm
South, beyond the reach of winter's
storms, and singing there their sweet
songs. There is an empty love nest in
many a home, in many a heart, but we
know that the dear one who is gone
is living with God in heaven."
Mrs. Buford sleeps. It is the quiet,
restful sleep that knows no earthly
waking. The sympathy of the public:
Is natural and right in its bestowal up
on the troubled hearts of a sorrowing
household, yet such sympathy is,
mingled with consolation to the be-:
Sreaved in that their sorrow, of a night's
duration, may and will be turned into
the joy of an eternal morning under
'the hand of resignation and patience.
At the funeral there was a great'
throng, and the flowers were there in
abundance to show the love and re
spect held for the departed one.
The surviving children are: Messrs.
Will T. and G. Fair Buford, of the,
Bush River section, Mrs. W. W. Crom
er, of Newberry, Mr. R. Hayne Buford,
of the Southern railway service,
Messrs. Pope L. and Munson L., and
.Miss Sallie Bell Buford, of Newberry.
A wvomn passer!aer on a transat
h:tce ling' bo+hered the officers an<l
hundred times a day she asked to be
called if one was sighted.
"But, mada:n," expostulated the cap
tain, finally, "why are you so anxious
about this whale question?"
"Because," she -replied, "all my life
Fve wanted to see a whale blnhher."'
