OUR eyes are dim this Yuletide morn;
The tears we couldn't help but shed
When o'er the wires the message flashed:
"Bob Gonzales is dead!"
Robert E Gonzales
With thousand& of other friends in
every walk of life and in every section
of the country, The Sentinel bows its
head in'borrow over the death of Robert
*E. Gonzales, which occurred last Tues
day night, December 19, at a hospital
In El Paso, Texas, where he had gone as
ergeant in the machine gun company
f the Second South Carolina Infantry.
eath was due to pneumonia. In civil
ife Mr. Gonzales was paragraph writer
of the Columbia State and was univer
sall .recognized as the most brilliant of
thM all. Tho only 28 years old, king
of his field and much praised, he was
t and unassuming and a man of
lovi~ disposition. He was South Caro
lina's brightest and best-loved journal
istic star. Good old Bob; he made the
world a better place to live in.
The Old and the New
The old year of 1916, with all of its
joys, sorrows, prileges and opportuni
ties are all numbered with the past, and
now the "New Year, " with all of its
responsibilities, is upon us. How shall
we meet them? is the question con
fronting us. As we look at the past we
remember with regret. perhaps, things
we did that ought not to have been
done, and many things wo failed to do
that ought to havo been (lone. Now
let us profit by our mistakes anld fail
ures of the past and turn over a new
leaf' and try to make a better record
during the next year.
During the Christmas holidays many
of our loved ones came in to see us and
our old homes were made bright and
cheerful again; but now the children
have all gone back again, and as we sit
by the fireplace so still and lonely, we
wonder how it will be next Christmas.
In many homes when the children come
back liext Christmas many of the old
folks will be gone acros.s the river, but
if prepared by grace .divine we shall

$ Once I wrote a girl a letter,
Bdn~t it causedi a great up~roar;

For this'lady shows my letter
To ev'ry Tom or Jack;
I'd thank her very kindly
If she would send It back.

But he'll have to do soie running
Before he catches me!
