Wc are sorry to report that Miss
Bertie Ferguson is very ill at this
Since our last writing three
deaths have occurcd in our town
and vicinity recent. First was the
sad death of little Harrison, son of
Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Drummond,
which occurcd some weeks ago.
Harrison was a bright little boy of
six summers, and greatly loved by
all who knew him. He was
buiried in the Cemetery at Lanford
on Sunday, and funeral preached
by Rev. J. A.Martin, of Laurcns.
How sad, yet, how glorious the
thought that he is in Heaven to
day. Just one week before his
burial he was at Sabbath School
apparently in good health and
playing fondly around his lather's
knee and with his little school
males. The scene on the day that
this little boy was buried was sad
indeed; just as the bereaved family
and relatives marched slowly up
one aisle of the church and the lit
tle body of Harrison was being
borne up the other followed by
sonic of his school mates ami friends
carrying flowers to pay their last
tribute of love to their dear little
friend, the choir sang sweetly and
softly "Shall we meet beyond the
river,'' but as wc sat there in the
church with tearful eyes and swell
ing hearts the lesson was taught,
"Be ye also ready."
The second was the dcalii of lit
tle Mamie, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. R. P. Milam, which occurcd
on Saturday before the third Sun
day in JWay. This was another
solemn occasion which was wit
nessed with sad hearts. Little Ma
mie was beautiful in life, but was
still more beautiful in death. Be
fore she was taken ill on Monday
afternoon, siic had the line of health
in her cheeks, it did not come with
in the range ol human nought or
anticipation that hpr death could be
so near, but congestion of the
brain attacked her suddenly with
malignant force, and in spite of all
that could be done by medical skill,
in spite of all the prayers of grief
stricken hearts and all the ministra
tions of loving hands, did its fatal
work in less than one week. She
was buried at Old Field Church on

THE ItEAPElt DEATH.
Dr. W. J, Alexander Succumbs
to a Stroke of Paralysis*
On Monday night Dr. W.J. Alex
ander had a severe stroke of paral
ysis and remained in an uncon
scious condition until 10 o'clock on
Wednesday night, when lie quietly
passed away. From the first there
was no hope entertained of his re
covery, and there was hut little for
his physician and friends to do ox
cept to wait for the final Olid. He
had been unwell for about a week
provious to this attack and had re
mained pretty closely at home, but
thought so lightly of bis indispo
sition that ho did not call in the
services of his physician.
He was born in 1848 in Georgia
but for nearly twenty years had
been a resident of this State. Ho
graduated with distinction at Mer
cer University and after that took
the regular course in the Southern
Baptist Theological Seminary, with
tho intention of devoting his
life to the work of the ministry.
His first charge was at Edgofield,
from which place he removed? to
to Darlington in 1877, having re
ceived and accepted a call to the
Baptist church at this place. While
here his sermons, by their striking
originality and depth of thought
attracted marked attention, and
the clear and lucid manner witli
Which he would analyze and bring
out the salient points of his text
easily placed him in the front rank
of tho ministers of his denomina
tion. Even those who could not
entirely subscribe to Iiis views
were compelled to admire the log
ical and forcible manner witli
which he presented them.
In 1882 Dr. Alexander's ability
received recognition by his elec
tion to the chair of Ethics and Chris
tian Science in the South Carolina
College. It is almost needless to
any that be filled tho position with
credit both to himself and the in
stitution. During his incumbency
of this professorship, finding that
he could not subscribe to all the
doctrines that were recognized as
the creed of his denomination *he,
with tho courago and candor that
were characteristic of his nature,
withdrew from its communion and
connected himself with the Unita
rian Church. This change and the
intense political animosity that
prevailed at the time, forced him,
about two years ago to resign Ids
position in the College, and was in
strumental in his entering on a
business career, whioh gave every
promise of success had his life been
After his retirement from tho
collego ho, very much to tho grati
fication of his numerous friends
here, made Darlington Iiis home.
Confidence in bis business capacity
was so great that he was oloctod
president of the Phosphate Com
pany, which, ho was largely instru
mental in organizing, and managed
its affairs to the entire satisfaction
of the stockholders.
He had only a few months ago
moved into a new house, where in
the midst of a happy family circle
there was every reason to hope
that ho would spend many happy
days, and his dying just In the
prime of life is a sad blow not only
to Iiis family, but to bis large; circle
of friends us well. In the private
and social relations of life ho wa.j ,
a model in every respect^ ;,nd it is
