to tho depot whoro tho circus was

parade could be witnessed, thoy
pushed and jostled each othor without
ceasing, but in tho main, with all good
humor. Tho circus did not arrlvo on

in Spartanburg County on the 15th of
February 1841. and was educated in
Asheville, N. O.
She had been an invalid several
months previous to her death yn the
morning of October 25th. From the
beginning, her disease was incurable.
For more than 20 years she had at in
tervals neuralgia of the heart. Her
suffering at these times was excrucia
ting. She was always resigned and
literally kissed the rod of her affliction,
saying in spirit "Thy will be done."
About May 1st her disease became
greatly aggravated. Her physician,
Dr. J. it. Culbertsori,called mauy other
doctors to his aid, but it was plain that
the inevitable could only be postponed
a few days or weeks. There remained
only alleviation of pain, ami soothing
of the mind preparatory of the last
moments which could not be long de
ferred. These were done with great
skill, tender affection, and faithful
ministration by her physician, her hus
band and children, and her pastor, lie v.
J. B. Parrott. Her neighbors were
assiduous in their attention.
Mrs. Knight was a daughter of Har
rison Drummond who was a descendant
of a man of that namcwho came with a
colony of Scotchmen near a hundred'
and fifty years ago and settled on the
three Tygcrs. Those .who settled on
North Tyger established a church near
Tanner's Shoals and called it Nazareth.
It is Presbyterian. The Drummonds
and others who settled farther South
became members at Bethel which is
Baptist ; another evidence that envi
ronments affect us greatly in many
other than physical ways. Drummond
is of pure celtio origin, and the name
in Scotland is suggestive of, and synony
mous with bravery, courage, and patri
Several Baptist preachers have
sprung from the original Scotch im
migrant and they have done valiant
and effective service in evangelizing
this section of our country.
Mrs. Knights father died while she
was quite young and her mother, who
was a member of the Martin family of
Warrior Creek, married Sanil Meredith,
Esq. She first married Burwell Bobo
and he was killed in the war leaving
two boys, William and Charles, in
18(18, (Sept. 27th,) she married M. Au
gustus Knight by whom she became the
mother of six children, five of whom
She was in all respects a good wo
man. Her pastor says she was a model
woman. It comes within the writer's
own knowledge that her pastor states
the simple truth.
She was conscientious and faithful
in all the relations of daughter, wife,
mother, neighbor, and Christian work
er. She had positive ideas as to the
right, and the moral courage, to per
form it ; and it only.
She was precise in her conduct, and
never forgot the proprieties and the
amenities of social life. She inspired
her children with a tender reverence
and love ; her husband, with a confi
dence and devotion that never faltered ;
and these will linger with him during
life as precious memories. At the last
she passed away suddenly and calmly.

Maintain the Health
No subject is of greater impor
tance lo the happiness and useful
ness? of every human being than
the matterot physical health. Of
course when a person is sick he de
sires to get well, and remedies in
tended to restore his health are
administered, but people who are
fairly in good health seldom think
of medicine. Tho (act is, every one
needs to have a good medicine
always at hand, for by Its timely
use prolonged sickness aud suffer
ing may often bo averted.
The most healthy person in the
world is liable to bo seized with
acute indigestion when certain
kinds of food are taken under un
favorable circumstances, and eveiy
one is in constant danger of head
ache?, colds, aud various ailments
which result from exposure, over
work or somo indiscretion about
diet, sleep or exercise. It is these
little ills that load lo chronic
disease. An undigested dinner
may bring on a stomach or liver
trouble which will cause many
years of suffering. A succession of
sleepless nights will Inevitably toll
upon tho nervous system, and will
perhaps bo tho precursor of ner
vous prostration. A sudden cold,
a chill, or exposure may bo fol
lowed by most serious conse
Henco tho Importance of attend
ing promptly to littlo ills and over
coming at once the slightest indis
position. And It is just as essential
that a rellablo medicine bo em
ployed I u ami n tain log health as in
curing disease. In the first place
your bluod must bo pure, and the
medicine that is lo keep you in
health must bo a good blood puri
fier. Tho most prominent blood
purifier in tho public eye tc-d.iy la
Hood's Sarsaparille. This medi
cine has gained the front rank in
tho medicine world by its power
to mako rich, pure and healthy
blood, and this is .?hat will keep
tho hotly in a vigorous condition.?
Hood's Sarsaparllla prevents dls
easo from getting a foothold be
cause It quickly overcomes the
minor ailments which disturb the
functions of tho body.
By keeping the blood pure with
Hood's Rareaparllla and regulating
the liver and bowels by the use of
Hood's Pills, tho danger to bo
feared from changes in tempera
ture and variations in dir t will be
avoided. Hood's Sarsaparllla, it
should be remembered, is tho one
true blood purifier. It is by Hs
power to make pure blood (hat it
cures, and by keeping tho blood
pure it fortifies the system against
all danger of its attack.
