meeting on Monday for the purpose of
deciding upon the best way to raise
money for a med.ai to be preserited to

young officer with a sword these
ladies have felt that he should receive
some gift from his State in recogni
tien of his gallant behavior during the
war and have gone to work to raise
the necessary funds. At this meeting
a lady was appointed to collect money
for the Blue medal and Mrs. W. D.
Dougla.ss was appointed .to collect in
Winnsboro. No doubt there are,
many who wish to contribute to this
fund and who would like to help the
ladies to do for Lieut, Blue what the
legislature was not willing to do. It
is hoped that . Winnsboro will not be
behin.d her sister towns in contributing
to this fnnd.

A GOOD SUGGEsTION
The good roads quiestion is being
agitated by the Greenkville News and
it is proposed in this paper that the
* State farm be abolished and that the
convicts in each county be hired out
to build good roadR. This plan sug
gested by the Greenville News will
meet the approval of every one who
has to travel over bad roads. The
roads in this county are at present in
great need of improvement, and from
the different counties comes the same
comp.laint. So much is said on this
subject that some good ought to come

pblished elsewhere in these columns
rs. C. Ladd died at her home in this
eunty on Monday. Only a short
tme ago we published a sketch of this
emarkable old lady at the request of
ome of her friends. For s ears Mrs.
Ladd lived in Winnsboro and during
er stay here she conducted a school
which was attended by many wh'o are
till livingihere. lSte was in many
espects a most wenderful woman,
,d during the lastyears of her life,
hen she was deprived of her eye
ight, her patience and resignation
er. the admiration and wonder of
hose around her. The entire comn
2nnity has been saddene-i by the news
ftMrs. Ladd's death.
EACHING CHIEDEEN GOOD MAN
Good manners-cannot be learned in
.moment. There are certain forms
rhich society has agreed people must
~onform to if they wish to appear
ell bred, and these are often not at
1ll what the natural inclination would
~rompt one to do under the circumn
tances. Children must be taught
bese conventions, andlwe must not
e surprised ifjthey are sometimes
slow in learning them, nor despair if
fter much teaching they at times re
pse into native barbarism. Patient
erseverance in training them will at
ast produce the desired result. The
onstant repetition that seems so irk
ome, combined with tha silent force
f daily example, will effect the end in
iew-a well-bred child.- February

. BEYOND THE NIGHT.
"The lark-like voice that sang so long,
Through bitter days or bright,
Has found the source of deathless song
Beyond the night.
The l6yal heart that beat so true,
Uauhanged by earthly ills,
Has rvacbed the everlasting blue
Of God's own hills.
The poet soul that clearly saw
In every mcrtal thing,
Twin miracles of love and law
Has taken wing.
The eyes by stress of time made dim
Death's mystic border passed
Beyond the far horizon's rim
See liebt at last."
'I his beautiful poem was written
by W. H. Hayne, Esq., and as it is so
app ',%le to our friend Mrs. C. Ladd
I ha i copied it as a tribute to her
wen: .wy and hope that you will give
it s! ace in your columns.
