where early Monday morning L. K.

quantity of silk hosiery, neckties and
other articles of furnishing goods, and
a fruit jar full of fuses and caps and
a bottle of nitroglycerine, were in a
large box. The box with its articles |
was turned over by Mr. Carpenter to

"Great Mothers Produce Great Sons" That
thought has passed into a pro- c
verb, that is why I enclose it in quo- v
tation points. It has been verified in !
the history of the world. Every wo- 1
man, therefore, ought to aspire to be c
great?in intellect, morals, culture, s
and religion. The greatest need of (
the world today is great and pure a
motherhood. Genuinely religious 1
motherhood would solve nine-tenths (
of the moral problems of the world. ; *
Behethland Foote Moore was a 1 ^
areat woman and subsequert to the jc
period of her life already traced she ' '
demonstrated that fact, beautifully \ y
and most abundantly. The little bit! ]
of romance I have already related '
terminated in her marriage to Cap-' 1
tain William Butler in 1784. CaDtainj*
\ -J}
Savage, her step-iatner, opposea n ; but
she married the young officer in i 1
spite of the dissuasion of her sponsor. ' '
It is presumed that she had the good;
sense to know what she was doing and |1
after events confirmed her good judg-;j
ment.
Captain William Butler's father ;s
and brother were butchered by;5
"Bloody Bill Cunningham" and his <
gang at Cloud's creek in Lexington ! 3
* j
county?now Saluda--one of the most!
horrible butcheries during the whole i '
period of the Revolution. We will re- '
* t
vprt tn it in ire nronpv (
Therefore, after the war Captain ;
Butler took his bride of nineteen to 1 '
a little farm he had inherited in the j
vieinty of that ever memorable spot',
Mount Willing-, in Abbeville countv.'
?
Not memorable because of great bat-!
ties, or heroic deeds, but because of I
the log cabin known as WaddeH'sj
school, which sent out so many fam-}
ous Carolinians. The achievements of!
peace are indeed greater than those j
of war!
The development and management;
of the little farm devolved almost
wholly on the young wife, for Wil-i
liam Butler was almost constantly en-'
gaged in public service. From 1801
to 1814 he was a member of Congress,
and in 1814 he was made Major Gen-:
eral of the state troop mobilized in j
Charleston. It is said that the whole
care not only of the plantation but <
of all the business connections of her
husband rested largely on her. In
addition to these duties, she assumed
the superintendence of the education;
of her children and L'avc her closest
personal attention to their moral
training, which gave tone and character
to their after life. The career
of her sons is the best evidence of her j
wonderful success. She was the mo- j
ther of seven sons and one daughter.;
The daughter, Emmala E., became
the wife of Hon. Waddy Thompson 1
who was minister to Mexico a few
years prior to 1850 and from whom i
descended several honored sons.
The eldest son, James, was for a
number of years Sheriff of Edgefield
district and was also a colonel in the p
state militia. He died in ISlM?the h
same year it: which Iris distinguished l1
father died.
George, the second son, became a t:
major in ihe arniv but rei rned in (
181"> and became one of the most ii
prominent men in the state though he
died at the early age of thirty-three. K
He was a lawyer by profession. The h
third son, William, was a surgeon in tl

while very young:. The eminence of 0
the fifth son, Andrew Pickens Butler, A
for many years a talented member of
the judiciary of South Carolina, and
also a distinguished member of the ^
I'nited States senate;, is sriid, more
than all the other sons, to have inher- ^
ited the cheerfulness of his mother;
ivhich not only added greatly [0 njs ^
political popularity but continually ,j

Elizabeth F. Eilet, in wilting of him;P
in 1850. says: ; pi
"A hero in the best sense of Ihe i (;
term was that 'American Douglas.' j
He commanded the regiment of his ^
native state in the Florida war: and,.,"

subsequently received the highest \u
testimony of the people's confidence;^
in hi? election to the chief magistra- j |
:*y of South Carolina. He fell at the; "
iiead of the Palmetto regiment in o
Mexico. Few of our prominent men.
r.ave left any single condensed ex- J
pression that has become classic by!
ixir.g itself in popular remembrance. ! ~~

The voungest son, Leontine, died in
n early manhood. A single anec-'^.
lote of domestic management may,
erve to illustrate Mrs. Butler's pow- J
?r over the minds trained by her,!
nd her habit of u?es of slight occur- j
-pncps to mould the character. The
children of her son. Col. Butler, amended
school in the village of Edge- ;
ield, where she resided, then a wi- j
low. One day when it rained vio- :
ently, the children having been pro-'
/ided with cloaks and umbrellas sent
for the purpose, her grandson, elev-;
m years of age, observed that a lit-1
:le girl, the child of humble parents,!
lad no such protection. He gave !
if i ins iii in aiiu tuc aii^iLux VL
imbrella and conducted her home :
amid the jeers and laughter of hs
four:;? companions. The amount of,
noral courage required for this simile
act of courtesy and kindness can
ie estimated when we consider the
sensitiveness to ridicule in a boy of
>uch early age. His grandmother's
expression of approval was sufficient
eward, and she lost not the oppor-,
;unity of exhorting the generous
?hi:d never to be ashamed of an
lonorabie action, however humble!
:he object.
All honor to the heroine of the
canoe! She won great victories,
without destruction or bloodshed, j
