The deep green of midsummer is resting
over the beautiful landscape-fair Nature

Just as surely as we watch the ripening

There are hearts in whose depths each

The question naturally arises, "Whence

cause is it due !"
Look around on our people, working to

sound logic. He utterances were conserv

and appropriate illustration of the feeling
existing among the white men of the State

A FUNERAL AND A FEAST.
Four Hours a Widower-How Dr.
Graham Drowned His Sorrow.
On last Sunday. Jnly 14, at 12 o'clock. at
Zion Baptizt church, near the North Caro

neighborhood, the funeral of Mrs. J.
Graham was was preached by the Rev. Mr
The bereaved husband .iith his three
little orphan girls went over from Dillon
Qn the train to the funeral of the departed
wife and mother.
Mrs. Graham was sick when she moved
to Dillon nearly two years ago. bhe was
never able to be up but very little from
then until the time of her death. She was
afflicted with consumption.
Quite a number of friends and relatives
assembled at Zion church to pay their last
respects to the departed Mrs. Graham. It
was a scene calculate~d to exite the deepest
sympathy for the sorrowing husband and
motherless little children.
In all the congregation of sorroying
friends there was no one whose affection for
the bereft husband and children was more
deeply stirred than of Miss Frances Camp
bell of Cotton Valley.
The many little attentions of kindness
to the orphan children were not wholly un
heeded by the observant father, and he be
came convinced that Miss Campbell would
make a good stepmother.
After the service was over he at once
sought and obtained the consent of Miss
Campbell to become his second wife.
Without further delay, at 4 o'clock sharp,
just four hours after the funeral of his first
wife, he led the blushing bride to the
ymeneal altar, wheic the twain were made
oe, and the 6 o'clock train brought the
happy couple to Dillon, where they will
make their future home.
