Death of Mm. J. Kit troll
Isom, Feb. 1. After a long absence I
come again to the sanctum of the "Only
Hkhald," and knock for admittance
into the family of correspondents. We
have lust passea tnrougn me inosi
fearful spell of weather for many years.
Manv cases of la grippe have been re
ported throughout the entire country
and death has played sad havoc in
It is our painful duty to record the
death of one of our nearest and best
neighbors, Mrs. Mary J. Mttreii, wno
died, after only a few days sickness, on
the 18th day of January, 1S',". A coinci
dence connected with the death of Mrs.
Kittrell is, she died lust two years arter
her husband and only two hours differ
ence in the time of day. She was a kind
and accommodating neighbor, a dutirui
wife, and an affectionate mother. The
writer knew Her an nis me, naving
been the playmate in childhood, the
schoolmate in boyhood, and in tne ma
ture years of manhood the friena anu
admirer of her only son, William A.
Kittrell. who died about four years ago.
She leaves only two children living-
Mrs. E. Jones, of Isom, and Mrs. Josie
Kittrell, of Denton, Tex; also several
grandchildren, two brothers and two
tisters, who will grieve for her, but not
as those who have no hope, for she made
her calling and election sure many
vears ago, having been a member of the
Christian church more than 40 years.
She led a faithful and consistent chris
tian life at all times and under the most
trying circumstances. After a beauti
ful talk at the church by Elder Ander
son, of Beechgrove, she was laid to rest
in the family cemetery near the church,
where she had worshipped all her life.
It is to be hoped that all who kmw and
loved her, will profit by her example
and be prepared to meet and rest with
her under the shade of the trees.
There are still several cases of sicK
ness in our community. Mr. . I. Wil

Then why do we mourn departing

To call her to his arms.
To the heart-broken father, mother

not shrink, but will bear us to our

which binds us closer to heaven. May

cogent reasons for believing that the
mikado's subjects soon will lose the for
eign customers they have gained unless
their code of commercial morals is ma
terially and rapidly improved.
Already Japanese consuls have re
ported that the country's foreign trade
is seriously injured by merchants who
send abroad matches that will not strike,
rice that is not up to sample and stuffs
the only merit of which is cheapness.
Guilds have been formed to introduce
better methods of business, but they
have not wrought much improvement,
and the situation cannot lie radically
changed so long as there is no publio
opinion to supiort the application of
morality to business. At present the or
dinary Japanese trader has no con
science, and until ho acquires one the
expected competition of Japan in the
markets of the world is not likely to
bo worthy of serious consideration.

Japanese Commercial Morality Rld to Bo
It has long Ijccu known to those who
had dealing with the Japanese that
commercial morality in Japan stands
almost on the lowest plane jxwsible to a
civilized people. With few exceptions
even those Japanese who prove estima
ble and high minded in all other matters
are not to be trusted in busineastransac.
tioiL In Japan the man who fails to
take advantage of his neighbor in a bar-1
gain is looked upon as a fool. The ex
planation of this state of things given
by Robert Young, who edits a Kobe pa
per, is that merchants in Japan have
hitherto occupied the lowest rung on the
social ladder, being deemed inferior to
the tillers of the soil and but little above
the pariah class. Up to a comparatively
recent period trader was but another
name for trickster and the pursuit of
commerce was held to argue a lack of
With changed commercial conditions
this low standard seems to have re
mained unaltered, so that the Japanese
trader is always thinking how he can
"best" the foreigner, and he will not
The South Carolinian.
The South Carolinian has always ar
rogated to himself the name Carolinian,
and he has never been on very familiar
terms with his northern neighbor. His
feeling for his southern neighbor, the
Georgian, is also one of mere tolerance,
for the latter has long been called the
southern Yankee and fairly deserves the
appellation. He bus much of the
shrewdness and piitm that mark the
typical "down easter," and be has a
considerable share of that worthy's
moral earnestness. In addition he has a
good deal of the Virginian's geniality
and love of comfort, of the North Caro
linian's unpretending democracy and of
the South Carolinian's tendency to ex
hibitions of fiery temper.
But over and above everything else he
has an honest and hearty and not un
founded pride in Georgia, and a sort of
Masouio affiliation with every person,
animal, institution, custom in short,
thing that can be called Georgian. He
may not always stand for culture, but
he does always stand for patriotism,
state and national. He loves success,
strength, straightforwardness and the
solid virtues generally neither is he
averse to the showy ones but above all
he loves virtue in action. Though pos
