TO PICNIC AT ROSEMONT.
Greenwood T. P. A.'s Arranging for Pic
nic at Home of Col. R. N. Cuningham.
The following news dispatch from
Greenwood will be of interest to many
people in Laurens:
"Greenwood, June 15. ?Greenwood
T. P. A. 's are getting busy. At a meet
ing of Post F Saturday night there was
quite a lot of interest shown. There
were several good talks made, and the
board of directors was appointed a
committee to make arrangements to
have a big T. P. A. picnic in August,
the plans now are to have a basket pic
nic at Rosemont and have a special
train to carry at least 200 men, women
and children to these beautiful picnic
grounds to spend a day of fun, fishing,
eating and let every one know some of
the good things tho T. P. A.'sare doing
in this State.
"We think a big basket T. P. A. pic
nic will help the T, P. A. cause in this
section and get tho ladies and children
interested in our grand order. If we
succeed in getting them to give us
their good will and kind words there is
no telling what tho T. P. A.'s can do in
this State. We believe that the social
feature should be given more attention
and get all the local people to know
what and who we are. There should be
I lots of honorary members in each post.
Let them join in all the public gather
ings. We want every T. P. A. in this
i Slate to keep on the lookout for new
members so we can have at least 1,500
of the boys in good standing by this
time next year.
"We are glad to note the interest
shown in Columbia and Darlington
posts and hope every post will make a
I special effort this year, for we are al
ready a great power in this Slate and

Miss Daisy Helle Robertson, a most

a lingering illness of several months,
died at her home at Cross Hill on the
( Veiling of the 28th ultimo.
She was the lovable daughter of Mrs.
Mary H. Robertson and the late Van B.
The visitation of tho Sable Monarch,
Death, ever brings sadness, mourning
nnd tears, but when it gathers within
its cold embrace one who had scarcely
more than reached the age of sweet,
lender young womanhood, as in this In
stance, then indeed such dispensation
seems doubly sad and mournful. And
thus one wdio pens this feeble tribute
lei her memory feels it a personal grief
and sadness he who had known and
seen her from tender girlhood grow to
womanly grace, beaut y and intelligence.
Put she was called hence. The Great,
Omnipotent, finger touched her and she
sleeps the sleep of tin* just.
As she languished with true Christian
resignation upon her couch of sickness,
slowly but surely dying, (of which she
was (dearly conscious,) she spoke cheer
fully of its approach and seemed to
gladly welcome its coming. Why, then,
should mother, sister, kindred or fro nds
mourn f >r one wdio has only exchanged
a lorrcstrlal for an eternal, celestial
life beyond the stars?
Daisy Robertson was a young lady of
most ffcntlo, sweet disposition, combin
ing all the virtues and womanly graces
peculiar to her sex, and was loved and
admired by all who knew her, leaving
behind troops of friends to mourn her
departure to the realms of everlasting
rest and happiness.
