DEATH OF JOHN B. BOY I).
Fountain Inn Neighborhood Loses a
Fine Young Man.
John B. Boyd died at his home near
Fountain Inn Friday morning at tha
age of 83, leaving a wife and four chil
dren. He w88 buried at the new
churoh near Fountain Inn Saturday.

Tribute of Bespect to Mio Late Mr. E.
God performs his works and some
times deals with his people in myster
ious ways. A ilower may Woom and
nourish to-day, and to-morrow wither
and be no more. The creature is surely
the subject, as well as the product of its
Creator, a moment may find us enjoying
the blessings of health and bappinesf,
but a few hours may bring sorrow, sick
ness or death. Mysterious though they
are "all things work together for good
to them that love the Lord."
Thus it pleased God in his matchless
wisdom to deal with our devoted friend
and neighbor, E. J. Dendy. Monday
in health and prosperity, Tuesday In
siokness and gloom, Wednesday in the
arms of death. Truly God is no re
specter of persons, and wherever and
whenever we hear tho summons,
"Come" the inevitable answer is,
"Here am I."
On the 8th of October in the city of
Augusta, Ga , where he had been car
ried for treatment, Mr. Dendy sub
missively responded to this call. On
the following day, as the numerous
relatives and friends assembled at his
residence to perform the last sad rite
to this noble and generous hearted
man, many hearts looked up to God In
humble but inquiring wonder at his
mysterious ways. A devoted husband,
a loving brother, a true friend, an
humble Christian, a valuable clt'zen
and a bravo soldier had answered the
final earthly roll call. His noble work
of obliging neighbors, aiding the
needy, supporting schools, churches
and country was done. God had re
moved all pain, dried up his tears and
given him a home of peace and joy,
"a house not made with hands eternal
in the heavens."
Why should you grieve, dear wifo, at
this God's will and your loved one's
eternal gain? Take oourage, be true,
for "in my father's bouse sro many
mansions." There'll be a place for
Why should we weep when the weary
In the bosom of Jesus supreme,
In the mansions of glory prepared for
?t Vor death is no more than a dream.
Only a dream, only a dream,
And glory beyend tho dark stream;
How peaceful the slumber, how happy
For death is only a dream.

Words of Which Many
Smokers are Ignorant.
Technical Expressions of
How Differences iu Size, Color, rack
ing and Shape are Indicated
Laurena has a full share of smokers
but it Is rare that one finds a judge of
cigars. One of the local dealers told an
Advertiser man that several times he
had people to call for "Maduros" and
thon complain that they were too
strong and vice versa. Tho following
from an exchaugo will prove of inter
est to burners of the weed:
Whenever tho nveragc untutored to
bacco lover wishes to Indicate to his
envious friends that ho Is In possession
of a cigar of tho first quality, ho usual
ly soys that he has a perfecto. By
perfecto he means the best cigar ob
tnlnnhlo, and as a rule he applies the
namo to nil products of the Ilnvona
factories. But In truth, declares nn
Intelligent writer tn the Kansas City
Journal, a good many cigars that
novcr saw Havana are genuine per
fectos, and a good many mndo In the
most famous factories of the Cubnu
capital are not. Tho word, as a mat
ter of fact, doe" not refer to tho quality
of a cigar at all. It Is simply a term
used to describe the shape. A perfecto
may cost $1, and It may cost 2% cents.
There are half a dozen clgnr terms
thus misused by tho average smoker,
and there are soveral times as many
words of tho same sort whose mean
ing be is utterly unable to fathom.
What native, corn fed smoker, for In
stance, knows tho difference between
a panctcla and a Rclna Victoria? And
how many know whether thero is a
real difference between a maduro and
an oscuro? i'pt all or these terms nro
tho common property of cigar makers
all over tho world. Like many cigar
brand names, they ore of Spanish ori
gin, but tho wanderings of Havana
tobacco and Cuban cigars have taken
thcin into all countries and all lan
Tho great majority of cigars are put
up fifty in a box, with thirteen on tho
top row, twelve on tho row next to the
top, thirteen on tho next and twelve
ou the bottom row. When a londrea
clgnr is packed 100 in a box in two
bundlos tied with n ribbon, It becomes
a Heina Victoria, which is Spanish for
Queen Victoria. Early in tho late
queen's reign a Cuban manufacturer
invented this method of packing and
called the resultant bundle after Great
Britain's sovereign. The name has re
mained ever elnce.
Tho word perfecto Is a term Indicat
ing a certain shape In cigars. A per
fecto is a smoke having what Is gen
erally called tho "cigar shape"?that
Is to say, it is swelled near the end
which is lighted and tapers gradually
down to the point, or head. The end
of a cigar which a smoker puts In his
mouth Is known among cigar makers
as tho bead. Tho other end, that
which is lighted, is called the tuck.
When, as often happens In a perfecta,
tho tuck Is very small. It Is called ft
needle tuck or feather tuck. All other*
follow theso lines more or less closely.
A thin, straight cigar, with little
moro thickness in tbo middle than at
tho tuck, is called a panctela. The
averngo panetela Is slightly longer
than a perfecto, though the matter of
slzo has nothing to do with the shape.
Pa notelas are esteemed because they
burn more regularly and are usually
better because mos? easily made. Xh*
virtue of the perfecto Is that Its small
er tuck lights moro readily, and Its
moro artistic curves give It greater
A londrcs Is a sort of cross between
tho perfecto and tho panetela. It Is
a perfecto from tho head to tbo thick
est part, and from there on to the tuck
it is betwixt and between. Usually
tho slope from the thickest part to the
tuck has a gradual curve. The tuck
*as a rule is as large as that of a pane
A partegas Is a cigar shaped much
like a londrea, except that the slope
from the thickest part to tho head is
usually not so rounded. It is a shape
not now as fashionable as It used to
be, and even when cigars are genuine
partegas tho box la seldom stamped
with the name.
A conchas is a small blunt cigar. As
a rule it is a very satisfactory smoke,
and usually it lasts as long as a per
fecta This Is because that thin tuck
of the latter burns down rapidly. The
opera is a very small cigar of any
standard shape. It derives its name
from tho fact that it is designed lor
a short smoke between the acts, and
very often it Is called on cid r acte. The
brevas is a large, clumsy cigar, good
for an hour's puffing. Tho largest else
of all Is the Napoleon. Sometimes Ha
vana Napoleons are six or seven inches
In length. Tho blacker ones are posi
The better grades of cigars are usu
ally made In several shapes and sizes.
There may be, for Instance, tho La
Flor do Habana perfectos, the La Flor
de Habana panetelas, the La Flor de
Hnbnna operas, tho La Flor do Ha*
bana partegas and the La Flor de Ha*
harm conchas. The label 1? tho same
on all of the sizes and shapes, hut on
the front of the box the name of the
shape is stamped.
On one end of each box of cigars will
be noted another word. Sometimes It
Is Colorado, sometimes It Is claro and
at other times it is maduro. This indi
cates the color of the cigars within, or,
as uninformed smokers say, the
"strength." The lightest of all cigars
are a yellowish brown. They are called
claroa. Next in order come the Colora
do clnrqs, which are a darker brown,
and then come the colorados, which
are a bout-midway between black and
yellow. After tbo colorados come the
Colorado maduro*,, which are a dark
brown, and then the maduros, which
are well nigh black. Formerly another
color was In vogue. This was the Os
curo, and It waa a shiny black. Bat of
late the fashion has been for light
cigars, and the word oscuro has almost
dropped ont of use. ,?.
