this fall awoke some of the atten- a

lion. J. E. Boggs at The Press Assoclai
We clip the follcwing from the
report of the proceedings at the
the late meeting of the State Pros
Association in Georgetown:
When the hour for the annual
address came a line audience was
present. President Aull was most
happy in his ii.troduction of the
Hon, Julius E. Boggs, who had
consentod to deliver the annual or.
ation. Mr- Boggs is a strong type
of the man fitted for ontertaining
an audience. His montal gifts are
well balancjd. His style is versa
tile, avitty always clear and strong.
Graceful in his argument, well
poised and thoroughly interesting
in what he has to say, he holds his
iudience with the gift of his own
power. His subject to night was
'Loyalty," the subject in itself
which stamps the character of the
nan who offered it. Mr. Boggs
ipoke on this subject with the fan
larity of one who had no stilted
hrasn, but with the naturalness of
mne who instictively had kowledge
vhereof ho spoke. lIe touched
ipon the delicato meaning of his
subject, ho brought fort its power
Lnd he recalled to his attentive
iearors the highest spirit of man
iness as a growth of loyalty. In
,he home, in the family circle, out
nto the wider sphere of patriotism
mid truth, the speaker brought the
rue meaning of his subject."

The Hope of the South.
The hope of the South is not in

who will pull off his coat, pull up
his sleeves and pitch in to accom.
plish the task before him, The
farm ma.nager and owner of the fu-.
ture requires brains in the manage
mont of the plow as well as the
professional or business man in
the commercial world or in the
weilding of the pen,.

Many hearts were made to fell
sad on the afternoon of June 2nd
when the news was spread that
Jas. 11. Ilughey had departed this
life. Though it was not a surprise
as he had been in bad health for
some time, caused by a cancgr of
the face and throat. He was an
old Limo honored citizen, a God
fearing man, and tried to lead
those with whom he came in con
tact in the paths of rectitude and
right, always putting his case be
fore God in all things and inquir
ing of him who doeth all things
well the way of salvation. He
served 4 years as a soldier in the
Civil war always discharging the
duties putl upon him to the
best of his abilty. And the life
our brother has led in the past
ought to be a criterion for every
one. le was the fathor of i; chil
dren of which the monster death
has snatched 5 leaving only one
son, John A. IHughey and his wife
to survive him. The bereaved
ones have the sympathy of a host
of friends in this their time of af
Iliction. The decoased was seven
ty-two years old at his death.
Just a fiw d1y s before his death
he expresbed linsel f as being ready
to meet God any time he should
call him away and requested his
companion aiid 01hers not to
glive but to follow the master

bo no parting.
