* ONE DOLLAR A YEAR
Hereafter Tub Advertiser will bo
sent ono year for ono dollar to persons
who will pay in advance.
Numbers ol persons complain that
the price of The Advkki'isku is too
high. Thoy say that ono dollar a
year 1b onough.
The price of tho paper is placod at
one dollar a year only because sub
scribers refuse to pay for it in ad
vance. When Iho proprietor has to
tako tho risk of frequently getting
nothing for tho paper, and besides, has
to pay for collecting, thero is no profit
at all in publishing the papor at ono
dollar. If ali THE Advertiser's sub
scribers would pay ono dollar in ad
vance the profit would bo much bettor
than at one dollar and a half on a cre
dit. Thoreforo, In order that thoro
may bo no reason for complaint, The
Advertiser will be sent ono year to
any person who pays tho dollar In ad
Bub8crlbors In arroars who wish the
papor at ono dollar must cf course sot
tlo tholr arrears and may then pay one
dollar In advanco for tho twolvo months
This rule will bo rigidly adhered to.
The cash must bo paid boforo tho pa
por is sent, olso tho price will remain
ono dollar and a half.

Mr. Editor: I don't profess to be
one of "Slocum Qllsons" smart

thirty years experience in raising
oats I can answer his question
"Why Mr. Taylor's oats came
through the freeze all right, while
others woro killed." It is not the
degree of cold that kills oats. Oats
covered only from ono to two inches
With soil, and this frozen from ten
to fifteen days before the oats have
time to come up, the oats will rot
and not come up at all. While oats
covered from three to four Inches
and tho soil frozen two inches deep
from ton to fifteen days will como
up. They sprout bolow the freeze
and B8 soon as tlu-ro is a thaw they
come through all right. I have ex
amined oats ofton ufler a long
freeze and found nil rotten to the
depth of (wo inches. While ail
below that depth wero growing.
Oats that are killed after they are
up is caused by sudden freezes.
The soil is raised and tho roots of
Full oats havo stood the cold un
usually well this winter and it can
bo accounted for in this way. There
bus been less extremo changes in
the weather in twenty-four hours
time since January 1st., than is
Sudden freezes and cold dry

to be almost failures for several

A few mornings ago at .| o'oclock
we thought we heard Gabriel's horn
blowing but to our surprise it was
our friend B. A. Wharton with
twenty dogs going to Laurens C.H.
in day time and on a fox hunt with
his friend J. W. D. Watts at night
on his return home. He was asked
it* he caught anything, he said )cs,
and he was then asked was it a red
or grey, he said neither one, it was
white. The gentleman then said
he never heard of a white fox when
Mr. Wharton told him it was a
sheep and no doubt that is the
way a great many of our sheep go.
Our neighbor T. S. Tcague rang
his bell so soon the other morning
we thought his house was on fire.
So the same occurred the next
morning and negroes say after
midnight he sets up and sie ps like
a chicken ami every time he
wakes he pulls the bell cord. He
don't only disturb his own crowd,
but it is the neighborhood and we

11th of January. She had been
in ill health for moro than a year,
and though we realised that we
would soon havo to give her up,
still when the shock came wo wero
not prepared. Wo hopod and
prayed that she might live to see
the spring flowers bloom onoo
more. But nlos! for our earthly
hopes. Death oamo and claimed
her for Iiis own, und she left us
to go and dwell in that beautiful
world beyond the grave, where all

The dear old home is lonely and

From which men never wake to weep.

Edwin Cook, son of John C. and
Nannie Cook, suddenly came to
Iiis death February 15, 1807. He
was born January 80, 1S77. He
joined the Baptist church at Cross
Hill when quite young, and lived
a consistent member up to Iiis
death. He was a young man of
fine character; universally respect
ed by all who knew him. He de
voted himself with untiring love
to his friends and family. There
are loving hearts which still bleed.
It is hard to comfort them, for
th*ut loss is great and their wound
After all, isn't it sweet and com
forting that their loss has been his
gain? that he now calmly rests in
the presence of his blessed Saviour,
forever freed from the toils and
burdens ol* this world.
May wo not ask each reader of

Few people know that all plants
contain digestive principles. They
cannot absorb their food until It is
digested any more than animals
can. The Mount Lebanon Shakers
have learned tbo art of extracting
and Utilizing these digestive prin
ciples, and it is for this reason that
their Shaker Digestive Cordial is
meeting with such phenomenal
success in the treatment of dys
pepsia. Tho Shaker Digestive
Cordial not only contains food
already digested, but it also con
tains digestive principles which
aid the digestion of other foods
that may be eaten with it. A sin
gle 10 cent sample bottle will bo
sufficient to demonstrate its value,
and we suggest that every suffer
ing dyspeptic make a trial of it.

How forgetful we aro of tho un
certainty of our stay ou this terres
tidl globe! Death rules with des
potic sway, und love nud affection,
scienco uud skill cannot stay his
cruol dart. How often doos ho ou
ter upon the scone when all seems
lutniuous with love and bright with
"hopes only (urmod to fade away
in glad fruition; whon each eu>
chauted hour seems a glowing
heart-throb, and every deep drawn
breath iadcu with overflowing hap
piness," only to mar it with sable
and suffering. Sometimes when
sorrow thickens and troubles ter
rify death comes to give relief.?
Diutlh has no set time or occasion
to come. In the midst of joy or
sorrow; of happiness or misery, of
duty being performed or duty loft
undone, Death comes upon the
8ceno to close up the mortal career
of an immortal being. In the
home circle?in fact in any circle
tliero is no love that equals the
lov ? of u mother, and no loss
greater to tho children than the
loss of s\ mother, save that of tho
losa ol Eternal Life. How thrice
blessed will the children ho when
they 11 ml?"Mother and Homo in
Heaven." How often does tho
hearts of the bereaved children go
up in earuest prayer:
"Sweet mother from the blest unknown
Where thou art reigning brightly now,
Give back the lovo which thou alone
Couldst Image on our hearts and
Come with alleetion strong and deop
From that far distant, shadowy land
Above us still loves Vigil keep
And guido us with thy angel hand."
There is mingled sadness and
rejoicing in tho rocord of a moth
ers death. Deep, untold, unspeaka
ble sadness to tho fatherless chil
dren n<>w bereft of mother; re
joicing that free from sicknoss and
sorrow the loved one has risen to a
life "unmeasured by the flight of
time, and all that life is lovo." Wo
do not know why in tho dispensa
tions of God's providence a wo
man whoso Christian Ufo was so
exemplary; who had magnified
womanhood and motherhood by a
conscientious, unswerving dovo
tlon to Christian duty amid sor
rows, trials and perplexities as did
Mrs. L. E. Linson, was called up
higher on the 20th of January, but
in tho fullness'of timo wo shall
know "He doeth all things well."
Mrs. Linson was forty six yoars
of age at tho time of her death.
Four years ago her husband was
called from her side, leaving hor
with five children, three hoys and
two girls, the oldest boy now four
teen years ol age. She had a good
plantation, but her hoys were not
iild enough to manage or assist
her. It was a heavy responsibility
upon the mother, tho care of hor
children and the farm. Tho now
year saw all her laborers loavo
her, and when typhoid fever laid
hold upon her, depressed and de
spondent, despite the best medical
attention and nursing her over
taxed system gave way after three
weeks struggle. She was on ex
emplary member of Bethany
Presbyterian church, always pres
ent at church and Sunday School.
Her groat aspiration was to servo
hor Lord and Master with single
ness of heart, and dring up her
children in the nurture and ad
monition of tho Lord. She walked
witli God daily und loft her chil
dren in the hands of the Saviour
of mankind. Her lilo illustrated
supreme faith In the God of hor
Salvation and dos<
what she could'"
and burial and her loss will ho
deeply felt by tho church and com-,
munity. The Influence of her lifo
was great, and she hardly knew
the extent of the esteem in which
she was held. The faithful Chris
tian mother was called homo to
"immortality and God.'*
May God smile upon her grief
stricken children ami bless them,
and when thoy are summoned
hence, may there be a grand family
re-union "beyond tho smilings and
weepings" in that blessed land
"where partings are unknown"
and God is its. light.
