Garrett, was born April ,10th, 1861 and

memory, and his body was placed to
rest in the Robertson graveyard, near
He was converted and joined the Bap
tist Church at Highland Home about
fifteen years ago and remained a faith
ful member until the day of his death.
Brother Garrett had been a great suf
ferov for five yeai-s. For four years he
had been confined to the house. He was
one of the most patient sufferers the
writer ever knew. The grace of God
was manifested in his life and death.
He had a most satisfactory experience
of saving grace. There was not a
cloud upon his spiritual sky. He tri
umphed gloriously over death. He not
only expressed a willingness to die, but
a desire to depart and be with Christ.
He was an honest man, a true friend,
a valuable citizen, an affectionate hus
band and loving father.
He leaves a devoted wife, three sons,
three daughters, one brother, two sis
ters many relatives and a host of
friends to mourn their loss.
The writer thanks God for the beau

Answer to 0. W. Moore's Inquiry.
Waterloo, S. C, April 18th, '05.
Mr. G. W. Moore, Dear old Veteran:
In answer to your inquiry in last week's
ADVERTISER in reference to the battle
Hag of tho Third South Carolina Bat
talion and as to what became of the
flag of that Battalion, I will answer by
saying that I believe that it was cap
tured by the enemy at the battle of
South Mountain and will give you my
reason for believing so. You remem
ber that Mr. Willie Simpson, one of
our brave Laurens boys, was color
bearer at that battle. My brother, H.
C. Puckett was right color guard and
Mr. Jack Golding, left color guard.
My brother fell in that battle. The last
I ever saw of our Battalion flag, I saw
it in the hands of Mr. Willie Simpson,
our noblo hero. I saw him down on
the ground. I suppose he had been
shot down with the flag in his hands
and I saw some of the Yankees trying
to take it out of his hands. The staff
had been shot in two and he was hold
ing to it. I also s? / a few Yankees
going towards him with their bayonets
pointing at him and calling on him to
surrender, which I don't believe he ever
did. 1. was about thirty feet from him
when I saw this. About that time a
piece of shell struck a man and he fell
on ine. I was unconscious for quite a
while and latter fell into the hands of
the enemy. Mr. Joe Anderson told me
he saw Willie a few minutes before 1
did; said he was walking up the line
with tho flag in one hand and his pistol
in the other and that the staff of
the flag had been shot in two then. ?
Wo have had great Generals and brave
officers that have fallen in battle, and
while Willie was only a private, but
honored with our colors, I ask who
ever died braver on the field of battle
than did our brave heroic color bearer,
Willie Simpson, who gave his life be
fore he would give up his colors. If
our Battalion flag is ever returned we
will know it by the staff being shot in
two also at the second battle of Manas
sas the top of the spear was shot oil'
the flag. After our flag was captured
by tho enemy did not our Bat talon
have another one, if so, I ask if any
one knows what became of that flag?

Co. A., S. C. Battalion.

An Ardent Admirer of Col. James
Editor Advertiser: I see Capt.
James Armstrong is to be your orator
on Memorial Day. 1 am glad I will
have the pleasure of hearing him. It
has been my exquisite pleasure on two
or three Memorial occasions to hear the
eloquent son of the Lost Cause, lay
such tributes on the graves of his lost
comrades that you will weep with re
miniscent love and thrill with the burn
ing flames of a never-dying patriotism.
There was nobody, unless it was the
immortal Grady, that could say sweeter
and more touching things about the sa
cred cause and its dead comraces than
the eloquent Captain. A treat is in
store for you. The battle scarred Gor
don's eloquence was on such occasions
touching and pathetic, but nothing sur
passes the beauty and the love with
which the devoted "Jimmie" lovingly
garlands the cause and the memory of
Iiis comrades. His snowy, curly locks
are certainly a picturesque sight. Ora
torically wherever Armstrong stands is
the head of the table.

Since Last Roll Call Three Have De
parted?Addresses by Judge Barks*
dale and J. J. McSwain.
Editor Advertiser: The 19th an
nual reunion of the Laurens Briars was
held at Fairview, on Saturday, 16th.
Despite the unfavorable weather a
large crowd was on hand. Eleven sur
vivors answered roll call. Three mem
bers, Sergeant Win, Lamb, Jos. R.
Brownlee aim Robert P. Bryson have
died since our last meeting.
J. W. Stewart, Esq., presided over
the meeting. Proceedings were opened
with prayer by Jonathan Owings, fol
lowed by an eloquent address of wel
come by John R. Harrison, responded
to in fitting terms by O. G. Thompson.
Then came by far the most interest
ing and intensely impressive part of
the day's work, the address of Judgo
Barksdalc of Louisiana. For more
than an hour he held that crowd deeply
interested. His recital of the varying
and tragic scenes of camp and hospital
and battle field, and of experience, sac
rifice and suffering at home, during
and subsequent to the war, showed his
wonderful memory and above every
thing his ardent love for Iiis native land
and for his old comrades.
Judge Barksdalc was followed by J.
J. McSwain, Esq., as orator of the day.
It is no exageration to say that 1 don't
think that, as an elf ort from the stand
point of the younger generation, the
Sons of Veterans, in vindication of our
section, in portrayal of the achieve
ment and prowess of the soldiers of
the South, the immortal sacrifices of
her heroic women, and in appeal for
the perpetuation of the priceless memo
ries of the struggles of the sixties,
that I have ever heard it equaled, cer
tainly not excelled.
A bountiful dinner was furnished by
the good people of that vicinity.
Miss Parker and her school arranged
a beautiful parade and enlivened the
scene with the strains of "Dixie" and
other martial airs. The Babbtown
String Band furnished some splendid
