Following is an account from The
Greenville News of Governor Ansel's
visit to Ware Shoals Saturday:
f Greenwood, July 4.?Thousands of
'"''people attended the annual picnic held
at Ware Shoals today.
Gov. Ansel came up from Columbia
and as he arrived in Ware Shoals
thousands of cheers were heard. He
was escorted by Mr. Benjamin Regel to
the church where he made an address.
The program was opened by prayer
by Rev. James M. Dallas. The wel
come address was then made by Mr.
Benjamin Regel, at the close of which
he introduced Gov. M. P. Ansel.
He began by expressing his pleasure
at being invited to this occasion, where
he was able to see numbers of his
friends from the counties of Laurens,
Greenwood, Abbeville, Greenville and
possibly others awaiting his arrival.
He referred to the American people
and said that all should join in the
praises of America and the upbuilding
of this great country. The attention
of the audience was directed to the in
terests of education, material, indus
trial and religious progress.
The Piedmont section of South Caro
lina was paid a high tribute by Gov.
Ansel. He spoke of the progress and
prosperity that had marked its course.
The harnessing of electricity and many
other important advances have been
The educational interests were spoken
of and the old time school was com
pared with those of the present day.
Winthrop as a State institution was
praised by the Governor. Clemson Col
lege was also spoken of in very high
terms. He said that the good work of
these institutions would be prominent
as long as time exists.
Religiously, he said, marked advance
ment had been made. The old churches
that existed many years ago furnished
the material for the building of other
houses of worship thereby enabling to
spread the gospel into every dark cor
ner of our State.
"With all this progress and prosper
ity comes opportunity which stares us
in tho face." The above words were
dwelt upon and as Gov. Ansel ended his
speech he said that he was indeed proud
to bo the chief executive olhcer of this
giand old State.
Congressman Lever was introduced
and he made an interesting talk on good
laws, clean politics and the progress of
our country. Mr. Lever captured his
(*ftiudience and hundreds of people gath
ered to shake his hand after the meet
Death of Mrs. W. R. White.
Mrs. W. R. White, who died in Green
ville several days ago, was the mother
of Mrs. ,J. A. Copeland, of this city.
The Spartanburg Journal has the fol
lowing of interest to the many friends
here of both Mrs. White and Mrs.
Copeland. The .Journal says:
"JJoforo her marriage Mrs. White
was Alis* Mary Montague Moseley and
was horn in Abbeville county October
16th, I8<n. On October 16th, 1857, she
was married to Capt. W. R. White.
Capt. White died December 13th. 1898.

ing children: Mrs. W. R. Dillingham, of
this city; Mrs. J. A. Copeland, of Lau
rens; Mrs. W. E. Wright and Mrs. R.
Y. Heliums, of Greenville."
Rev. W. M. Duncan, pastor of the
deceased, in a last and beautiful tribute
to tho memory of Mrs. White among
other things says:
"Mrs. White was a devoted wife and
mother, a true and loyal friend, a de
vout and consistent Christian. In early
life she united with the Methodist
Kpiscopal church and her Christian life
was one continuous and beautiful illus
tration of the spirit and teachings of
the Christian religion. She was blessed
with an unusually bright mind which
was cultivated and trained with a sweet,
gentle disposition, and with that grace
and charm of southern womanhood
which commanded the respect and ad
miration of all who came in contact
"About one year ago she was made
an honorary life member of the Home
Mission Society, and she was also hon
ored by the society in having a scholar
ship in tho Brovard Industrial School
named for her The Mary White Schol
"Mrs White was a prominent mem
bor of the Daughters of the American
Revolution, being a charter member
and an honorary life member of the
Nathaniel Greene Chapter of this city."

Last Sunday wo wont down to Friend
ship church to worship with the Presby
terian brethren, and the visit called us
back to the ante bellum days of William
P. Martin, the Baptist preacher at old
Friendship. On one occasion Uncle
Hilly had been carrying on a protracted
meeting there for two weeks without
any addition to the church. One night
he invited up mourners and only one old
man came up. He cast his eye down
from the high pulpit and recognized the
man and said, "Brethren, lo we have
been fishing these many days without
any success until tonight. We have
made a haul and caught a frog." The
old man slipped out and the meeting
John Robinson next Idled the pulpit
at Friendship. He bad a way of beat
ing the Bible with bis list and taking it
up with both hands and bringing it down
on the book board. He soon wore out
the Bible. The members purchased a
new book and Deacon Bolt gave the
preacher a chat before preaching:
"Brother Robinson, we have bought a
live dollar Bible and we are few in num
bers here and cannot afford to let you
beat it up on the pulpit. 1 will get on
the front bench and when I see you
about to bring down your list on the
book I will shake my bead at you and if
you don't then quit I will rise up and
tell you that you must not hit the Bible
What a wonderful improvement there
is in the manners of the young people.
They sit quiet in t he church during Sun
day school and preaching; no going out
or talking during the service.;. In old
times a dozen hoys and girls would rise
up and march out of the church to the
spring. All during the sermon this
would be kept up and when in the house
they would not behave themselves too
well. Next thing you would see a negro
girl walk in with a pitcher of water and
a tumbler and hand it around to her
people. The children were mighty dry
in those days. 1 guess Ihov ate too
many ginger cakes. It did not annoy
Uncle Billy in the least. Ho would
preach right on and not notice the eat
ing and drinking. Today you would not
know there was a spring at Friendship.
They did not even water the pastor on
