BEAUTIFYING COUNTRY HOMES,

par baskets, bar'ness, Sadd les, g4an
sacks, saws, axo, steolyards, wngg

lying around. And this will appi
also to some of our towna folk. \V
have seen all kind of clothing on

. Another point on thiS line is tIh:
the farmers very often locato the
barns, cribs, stables, ets., in front <
their dwellings whicb detrcts fro
the attractiveness and beauty of t1i
home. All out build'ngs t-hould I
in the rear of the dwelling. If ti
land has been cleared ny to the fror

oaks in front of the house.
Another point is that he fore
should never bo cut oin the nort
and went of a dIwelling and near li1
same. The timber serves as a win
brake in the cold weather and make
she home more comfortable. Otz
forefathers did not ny~e their bruit
sufficiently in locating their countr;
homes and clearing their lands.

Now Mr. Editor, you must knmo'

June 5th, 1855, in Pickens county,
near Six Mile, and died Soptembor

Mile river. Mr. Gassaway had do.

what is worth doing at all is worth
doing well. His well improved farm

successful above the average, and set
an examplo of thrift and onorv that,
has not been lost on his acquaint
ances. His constant el',rt was to
make every row do its.very best.
Ho was early married to Mliss
Leonora Reed, the daughter of a
a near neighbor. Together they
lived happily, and now she is left to
mourn her irreparable loss in his re.
Mr. Gassaway was a man of more
than ordinary force of character. In
him word and honor all who kaew
him had the utmost confidence. Ile
hated a mean, low thing. Those
who know him oest confided most in
his integrity. Those who were re

him, and 'eldoma wanted to leave his

His remains were laidl to rest in

funeral services wore conducted at
the grave in thie presence of a large

At tawny, Johnson, Finley and Sebaid.
He never connected himself with any

for the last, two years of hisi life, uundt
during this time endeavored earnest
