1 OWN THAT DOES THINGS
Sad Death?Baptist Missionary Society
Whitmire, Sept. 3.?Our community
is sad over the death of Mrs.
Margery Bay who was buried here
yesterday. She had been a widow
for 27 years and lived a long and useful
life. When a girl she joined the
Methodist church and ever afterwards
was a consistent member. Her
whole life was the embodiment of
charity and good deeds. She is survived
by two daughters, Miss Jessie
Bay and Miss Nora Bay, and one
son, John Bay, who is farming near
Prosperity. A profusion of flowers
and great concourse of friends at
her interment witnesed the high esteem
in which she was held.
Our brass band, one of the .best,
will give a concert this afternoon in
the park. Some of our laymen may
Dr. C. L. Busbee is spending a few

is accompanied by his wife and sweet

and e ahs gone down to get

The Baptist Missionary society met
here Friday last. The attendance
was large and much interest was
inanifested. A fine dinner was
spread in the park, which unlike
their communion, was free to all.
Mrs. W. H. Runt and Mrs. John Kinard
were conspicuous by their good
lucks and activity in the proceedings.
It is 25 years since we saw these fine * 1
ladies and we were glad to see that

2S with his new Dodge car. For two
claps he forgot to go to dinner or
that he had a splendid wife. We hope
his attention to his car will not increase
the sale of tombstones.
Dr. W. R. Barron of Columbia
was the guest last Sunday of our
Laymen's Brotherhood. Ke delivered
the monthly address and it was a
good one. The doctor is president
of the Billy Sunday club of Columbia

We are on the "tip-toe of expectation''
as to the coming of the Newberry
boosters. Whitmire will give
them a royal welcome and agree to
anything they propose as to the welfare
of our grand old county.
Miss Gertude Smith of Kinards is
the guest of her sister, Mrs. J. W.

that Miss Gertrude may become
a citizen of Whitmire.
