A. J. McKISSICK.
Well Known Young- Man of the Brew*
erton Section Dies After a Long Ill
ness.
Ware Shoals, June 27.?Mr. A. J.
McKlsslck died at his home In Brew
erton on June 20th after a long ill
ness which was borne with- cheerful
ness and Christian resignation. He
was a man of high principle, of genial
disposition, well liked by all who had
the pleasure of his acquaintance. The
deceased gentleman was a young man
only in his twenty-ninth year when
he met his untimely death. Mr. Mc
Klsslck was the only son of W. I.
McKlsslck of Union, S. C, and was
raised and educated in that town. Af
ter attending the public schools there
he went to the Military Academy at
Auburn, Ala., where he spent several
years In study. He afterwards became
an expert electrician having filled Im
portant positions in South Carolina,
Georgia and Florida. On account of
failing health, Mr. McKlsslck had to
give up his chosen profession and re
tire to his farm near this town. Ow
ing to his education and Intelligence
he became a very good farmer, until
through weakness he was laid aside
altogether, being unable to look after
his affairs. Mr. McKlsslck was unit
ed In marriage In 1908 to Miss Ernes
tine Pitts only surviving daughter of
Mr. J. Y. Pitts, who is left to mourn
the loss of a devoted husband.
The funeral o fthe deceased husband
and friend took place at Friendship
cemetery last Saturday morning and
was attended by a large concourse of
mourning relatives and friends. The
handsome metallic casket was cover
ed with flowers, gifts of those who
loved him well. Services were con
ducted at the church after which the
remains were carried to their last
resting place by six stalwart broth
ers-in-law, the Messrs Pitts. At the
grave the beautiful and impressive
ritual of tho Presbyterian church was
recited by Rev. J. M. Dallas while the
body was laid to rest near the dust
of his kinsmen and friends.
The following gentlemen officiated
as honorary pallbearers and walked
beside the bier: W. Y. Watkins. P.
L. Abrains. T. T. Wood. J. P. Sim
mons, J. W. Simpson and H. O. Walk
er. Mrs. Anna West, of Poplar looked
after the many details of the funeral
and very kindly helped In various ways
Among those present was Mr. W. I.
McKlsslck of Amerlcus, Ga? father of
tho young man who had lost his only
and well loved son.
Mr. McKlsslck was a member of
Memorial Presbyter' - n church, Ware
Shoals and took an active Interest In
Its welfare, as long as his health
would permit.
By W. D. S.
Times do surely change. When I
was a lad. most of the milling was
done on horse back. The ten year
old boy, up to the aged grand sire
would mount old Chorkey and sot
astride of a two bushel sack of corn,
and off to the nearest mill he would
ride for his meal. The good man of
the house would ride his horse to
church on the Sabbath day, with a
child in his arms and another child be
hind him on tho horse with his arm
around his waist. His wife would be
on another horse, with two children,
one before and one behind. Some
farmers had ox carts. Uncle .lackey
would often come to our mill, driving
the captain's cart with two black oxen
hitched to It. Thornton would drive
up with tho squire's two wheel cart
and yoke of yellow steers. Ho envari
ably came with two strong home made
meal sacks, each with three and a half
bushels of white flint corn, for family
bread, would have no other kind of
corn. They kept a standing turn nnd
every Wednesday the cart would come
In and unload and load up the meal,
so as to lose no time! Now the old
black mlllor would grumble and
grunt under those big 3 1-2 bushel
sacks. The next milling period, wag
ons were mostly used, the horse back
man decreased. After the war, when
everybody got rich and proud, the rub
ber tire buggy came in for a mill
wagon. How funny it looked to see
a man drive up with a flour barrel
of oar corn sitting between his legs
in his buggy.
Last Saturday friend Bob was ex
tremely busy with his mules, killing
the grass in his crops. Late in the
evening he found the meal barrel was
empty. "Son, crank up the auto, place
six bushels of corn In It and go and
get us some meal." Miller Dick was
waiting for him. He soon turned his
corn into meal, and before you could
Bay scat many times, the meal was
at home, ready to be boiled into mush
for supper. Everybody guess what
will be used for the next milling ve
hicle?

SOUTH CAROLINA.
Georgia Fitch in the Wisconsin
State Journal.
South Carolina is a state of per
petual Iritation, situated between
Georgia and North Carolina, and
somewhere between the Revolution
ahd the War Between the Sections.
It Is the lighting state in the Un
ion and is the unsafest spot between
the Atlantic and the Pacific in which
to discuss the emancipation procla
mation or to edit a newspaper with
a trenchant pen.
South Carolina Is about as big as
the front yard of a Texas cattle king.
It contains 30,000 square miles, is
shaped like a 5-cent cut of pie, and
has 1,500,000 people, Including Re
publicans, Chinese and Indians not
taxed. The population Is almost
equally divided between whites and
negroes, but one white Carolinian
when he gnashes his teeth and draws
in his breath with a low, hissing sound
can make 100 colored residents go
away In search of rest and a change
of climate without waiting for the
next train
South Carolina was settled about
250 years ago, but has remained
unsettled ever since. It has always
been noted for Its nervous disposi
tion and its, willingness to rise up
and smite the universe on all occa
sions. The British were having an
easy time in the Revolution when
they struck South Carolina, but Gen.
Marlon soon made them look like
a Republican who has criticised Gen.
Lee in Charleston. The state helped
win the Revolution, but threatened
i i take its doll tilings and go home
m Jackson's administration, and In
1861 it opened the War Met ween the
Sections by seceding with a prodi
gious explosion. Later it contributed
Tlllman to the United States sen
ate and has listened to the uproar
ious results with pride ever since.
?OUth Carolina was severely shaken
by an earthquake In 1886, but did not
secede at that time.
South Carolina raises cotton, ice
and sweet potatoes, and supplies
turpentine and rosin to the world :'t
large. It begins at the Atlantic ocean
in a modest way about six feet below
high water, and for many miles inland
is so moist that the farmers keep
life belts handy on their wagons. It
has many fine old towns, full of po
lite and chivalrous citizens, but the
population peters out in the western
mountains, where the people eat clay
Instead of ice cream and lobster, and
empty the hookworms out of their
Sunday shoes by pounding the soles
with a stick. There are three religions
In the state?Protestant, Catholic and
State rights. Between the Savan
nah and the ePe Dee rivers John C.
Calhoun is still the greatest man in
the world and history closes in 1865.
Charleston, a beautiful petrified city
on the seacoast Is the metropolis of
South Carolina. The hope of the state
is In its public school, but the cotton
tqills, which are spreading all over it
like a heavy rash, are driving hun
dreds of teachers out of employment.
During the summer months mothers
of young children should watch for
any unnatural looseness of the bow
els. When given prompt attention at
this time serious trouble may be avoid
ed. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy can always be
depended upon. ?For sale by nil deal
