3lt. Olive, June 27.-The little body
o($ trvo year old child of -mr. and
Mrs. Frank Cannon, of Abbeville, was
brdught to this place for burial Sun
day afternoon at 2 o'clock. The par
ents of the little one are natives of this
section of the county and moved to
Abbeville only a few years ago. The
large number of friends who accom
ppanied the remains from Abbeville
and the profusion of flowers which
cov;ered the new-made grave are ex
pressions of esteem in which the fam
I1y are held in their adopted home.
Though interrupted soinewhat 1,y
threatening rain Sunday afternoon a
large congregation assembled at the
cemetery to witness the unveiling
ceremonies in honor of Travis Dald
win whose sad death occurred last
Alarch. The program was in charge
of the local camp of W. 0. W., led by
C. A. Power of Laurens, who dl!!v
ered a short address. An appropriate
reading by Virginia Alltebell and a few
well selected songs by a group of
young people added to the interest as
well as to the solemnity of the ceca
sion. The veil concealing the Wood
man monument which marlis the rest
in, place of Sovereign Travis Bahl
win was removed by two little chil
dr'n. brot her and sisteril of t!he de -
Ceased. The numnber of young m1e0:1.
still in their ten ss, associates of 1the
((reeased brother, was quite not iceabcle
in the ceremonial procession. The
exercises were to be held at 1 o'clot
'but a slight sprinkle of rain caused a
delay of one hour.
