DEATH OF MIts. J. B.' NEWBERTY.
On the last day of October, 1922,
as "the golden sunshine glistened
among the 'bright colored foliage
which enveloped the earth, betoken
ing the death of the year, the sweet
spirit of Mrs. Tirzah Burdine New
bev y took its flight to the beautiful
mansions above. She had passed her
82nd birthday and was ripe and
tCady when the Great Harvester
came. Her body was afways frail,
but her bright, cheerful disposition
was almost a wonder to all Who
knew her. A year ago last February,
her husband was taken, but no mur
mur ever escaped her lips. Hers was
the most beautiful of lives, so full
of patience, mercy and kindness. She
was the eigth child of Rev. Jno. and
Charlotte Burdine and was born four
miles north of Piekens. In 1860 she
married J. 13. Newbery. Went to
Richmond in 1862 and nursed in a
Confederate hospital during the re
mainder of the war. She had only
thirty neices and nephews.
'fhe old home will miss her, the
good friends will miss her, the rela
tives will miss her, but, most of all
N:hc will be missed by her only daughc

be done."
IMISS DAVIS' DEATHT SADDENS
LIBER'l'Y.
Liberty, Oct. 27.-On Tuesday
morning, October 24, as the sun ray
wee rising above the eastern hills,
the spirit of Anna Mae Davis peace
fully glided into the Great Beyond.
She was some si:tecen years of a'e.
t' beloved and only daughter of Mr.
E. E. Davis.
Anna Mae had ben a su'.ffer(r for'
many weeks but she was ch( erful and
her.' up bravely to the last. leaving a1
life that was a ipronotunccdl blessimt
upon those of her home and communi
ty. She is survived by'her father an I
mother, E. E. and Annie Holder Davis
and an older brother, Arthur Davis,
of Liberty.
The day' following her death the
funeral services were held at the
First Baptist church, conducted by
her pastor, Rev. C. F\ Sims, imiter
ment being at Westview cemetery.
The high school, of whici Miss
Davis was a member attended in a
body. The following lovely girls,
arrayed in white. acted as honorary
raIlhearers: Mlisses Addie L. Davis,
Carrie Lee ro-rter, Janie, Addie, Kate
and Leander IHolder. These carried
the flowers which were quite beauti
ful. The active pall bearers were:
Messrs. DeWitt and D. H. Davis, Er
nest Port(r, J. D. Geelola and Albert
Iolder all being first cousins of the
dleceased.
"IHeaven hath our treasure now,
Earth the lonely casket keeps,
And the sunshine loves to linger,
Where our darling sleeps.'
SECONA CHIURCH
The pastor hopes that all members
will come promptly. on time next
Sunday. We wvill have wvith us Mr.
.J. L. Walker, the very popular presi
dlent of the Baptist Young Peoples
Union of the Central church in
Greenville. He promises to bring
with him two car loads of his mem
bers. They w'll come to tell our
young pcopkd about the good such a
union wvould (d0 in our churach. As
pastor of the church I want to say
that wve should p~rizAe very highly
sitheir coming. It will be some sacri
fice on their part to come twventy
miles and return that afternoon.I
am sure that wve have some as bright
and promiis-ing young people in Se
cona church as can be found in any
community, and we want them to
have the best thinks thats going.
The young people all over our State
are taking front rank in all the good
work of our dlenominatioyn. Our
piarents should be dleeply interested
in this movement, for it offers to our
boys and givrla an opportunity of
development that is- found no where
else in our churches. Let everybods.
come. There will be no admissior
fee at all. B. P. Mitchell.

wfo has started out in life with a
bright future and benig a man of
sound-judgment- readily saw a single
man could never save what he made
or be a useful citizen to his state
and county, and realizing also that
the first man God ever made had to
'have a help mate to help him eat the
bread that he made by tTiec sweat of
his brow after being driven from the
garden of Eden, he( wag entitled to a
wife to help him save as well as to
help eat the bread he inade. We

CHIARDD~S.
Liberty.--In th.s legion, but a few
miles distant from the Blue Ridge
mountains, considerable interest has
recently been shown in peach and
apple orchards. From present re
ports several large orchards will be
planted this fall according to J. C.
lHuntm'o, secretary of the Lberty
Chamber of Commerce.
One of the largest orchards to be
set out is that of 500 peach trees by
J. F. Bannister, president of the Lib
erty hank. This place is locate')
slightly more than a mile from01 town,
on the main highway from Liberty to
Easley. The hgh ground is consid
ered to le 'well adapted 5. a site for
an orchard aund it is expocted Mr'.
Bannister wvill make a success5 of his
orcoharid.
Mo'any farmeris from this sectiou
have muadle recent trips to the peach
belt about Cornelia, Georgia, with a
viewv of witnessing first -handl the
methieds that are being used in that
section of the country. The inifor,
muation that has been obtuained1 on
these trips has caiused many addi..
tional farmers to investigate the'
possibilities in the orchardl business.
The Liberty Chamber of Cormmere
which has sought to assist the farm..
ers in every practicable way, is co
operating wvith T. A. Ilowen, county
dIemlonstration agent, in dlispiensing all
possible information in regard to the
planting of orchards.
Next Monday is expected to, be the
biggest salesday in Pickens in several
years.
We have accounts of several birth
(lay elebrations which wvill appear in
next issue.
