All christian parents are supposed
to try to raise their children to obey
the commandments of Ood, and to

endeavor to make religion sweet to
our children? If a love of duty and

hearts, much has been accomplished
for them. A man may lead a moral.

family or social pride, or for many
other reasons; but unless Divine
love prompts his thoughts and ac

we truly love (Jod. our duty to Him
will be always a pleasure. The home
conversation should tend to bring
the children into closer communion
with God, making them feel that
He is their ever present friend. An
exchange says: "When the home
atmosphere is religious, and the con
versation is seasoned therewith, the
children will irrow up considering
the high problems of personal duty
and destiny, and will not hasten
from godly speech, and act as if the
subject were too unpleasant for con
sideration. We have been privil
eged to know a few people who were
so sweetly abiding in Christ that
their heavenly-mindedness was
manifest to all."

The pinafore waists will be worn
to quite an extent. The upper part
of tliQ w aist being cut away permits
the wearing of a guiinpe of , very

What Woman Owe to Society,
Womau stands as the sacred
guardian of future homes and our
nation's prosperity, and to her must
we look for true reforms. To her
standard must society come. Let
her be sure to place it high and keep
it pure, and make it apply im
partially to all people. Let her
keep out those whom she knows fall
short of her standard, and never
condone in the stronger sex what
she condemns in the weaker. Let
her think not to elevate society by
hiding or condoning the evila which
surround her on every side, but only
by shutting out those whom she has
found it impossible to raise to her
standard. Then future generations
will arise who will bless her for
their heritage, instead of cursing
her for their misery. Dwight L.

Charm Woman' Mont Dmlrable Cilft.
In one of our most intimate and
confidential talks a dear girl asked
me to tell her what I think the most
desirable gift for a woman. She
spoke of several friends one of
them as having grace of movement ;
another, as rarely beautiful, with
brilliant eyes and lovely com
plexion; a third, as accomplished,
playing and singing, a id speaking
two or three languages besides her
own ; a fourth, as very clever. We
may multiply the list, and as we
look over our circle of friends we
easily see that nearly every one has
something bright and individual
which commends her to us; but the
sum of the matter is that the gift of
all gift9 for a girl is expressed in one
little word of five letters charm.
If you insist on my defining charm,
I am afraid I will disappoint you,
for it is as difficult of analysis as a
perfume. The better way, if I could
manage it, would be to show you
somebody who has it, as I would
show you a painting on the wall, or
a tiower in the garden. Very plain
girls and women are sometimes
endowed with this grace. Ex

FLEMISU FAMILY UKUNION.
An Historic and Interesting Paper Head
By W. S. Fleming.
Friday last was a day that will ever
he a pleasant memory "to those of the
Fleming name and blood who had the
good fortune to be present at the family
gathering which took place near the
old homestead at Zion Church.
The day opened with rain, and not
only the children, but the older people
wore looks of disappointment. Tele
phone bells in country and town kept
up a continual ringing, and the ques
tion, "shall we give it up?" passed re
peatedly over the wires. Finally it
was decided to wait until 11 o'clock and
see if the weather would change. Three
little tots in one family, John, Annie
May and Ruth, stole off to the nursery
and prayed in simple faith that the rain
would stop. About eleven o'clock it
seemed to be brightening up; the bells
again began to ring, and the messages
came and went, "The lunches are ready,
we cannot postpone; we will go." And
we went; at least those named below
did, although some of the older mem
bers were deterred by the dampness
and uncertain outlook.
Those present were, Jonn F. Stephen
eon and wife and two of their children;
Horace ltainey and wife and three chil
dren: Mrs. Adeline Fleming of Georgia
aud son, Oatman t'leming; Albert, son
of Knox Fleming; W. S. Fleming and
wife and four children; Mrs. S. G.
Dunnington, Miss Narcissa Williams,
Will Dobbins, Dr. J. G. Williamson
and wife and eight children; Julius F.
Fleming, BobeitG. Fleming, James A.
Fleming and David Flemiug; Walker
and Whitney, sons of Preston Fleming;
Geo. C. Mc Fall and wife and two chil
dren, and Dick Fleming, colored, who
nursed T. F. Fleming and afterward
went with him as body-servant during
The assembled host after the grave
of Chancellor Flemiug, the last to die,
had been decorated by his immediate
family with magnolias, sweet-peas and
poppies went through the church, had
a bucket of water brought by faithful
Dick from the old family spring, and
then the ladies spread the dinner 011
the benches in the rear room of
Stephenson Academy. It was a royal
feast, of fried and broiled chicken, old
ham, roast beef, dried beef, salads,
pickle bread, biscuits, sandwiches,
jellies, chocolate cake, nut cake, citron
cake, banana cake, lemon cake, lemon
and gooseberry pies and frozen cream,
tea, cotlee, cheese straws and candy.
After the cravings of hunger had
given place to feelings of full satisfac
tion, and the small boys had waded the
branch, chased stray pigs and made the
pony kick to their heart's content, all
assembled in Stephenson Academy,
which had been opened, and then com
menced a flow of fun and merry jest, in
terspersed with melodious songs from
Julius F., James A., Kobert and David
Fleming. Some of the children also
responded to requests for speech and
song, among them being George Wil
liamson, Mary and Addie Hainey, John,
Annie May and Ruth Fleming, and
During the evening W. S. Fleming
read a sketch of the family, quoting
from a book entitled "Higgar aud the
House of Fleming," published at I'.din
burg, Scotland, in l.Ht7, to show that the
family originated first in Flanders, re
moved to Scotland during the twelfth
ceutury, where they were called Flem
ings, because they came from Flanders,
ami about the year l.jiKS, were raised by
King Robert ISruce of Scotland and his
successor to the F.arldoms of Wigton
and Dumbarton and the estates of Hig
gar and Cumbernauld, which they re
tained throughout the reigns of the
liruce and Stuart dynasties. That
the family was allied to the Stuarts by
blood and allegiance, and followed the
fortunes of that unhappy line until its
extinction, being restored to the Earl
dom of Wigtom bv James VI, after he
ascended the KnglUh throne, bv letters
patent dated at Whitehall in liii'l. That
they espoused the cause of the Re
formation in Scotland, and that in all
probability, John Fleming, who wo
know went from Scotland to Ireland,
thence to South Carolina iu the year
17.10, was a cadet of the family traced in
the above book; especially as the facts
therein stated correspond with tradi
tions handed down to us.
This book was loaned to W. S. Flem
ing by Mr. J no. D. Fleming, of Kansas
City, Missouri, a descendant of the Vir
ginia branch. It is positively known
that John Fleming, our aneester, came
from Ireland to South Carolina in the
vear Yi'.to, accompanied by his son
James, his wife Janet, and' his father-in-law
John Witherspoon, who was
born in Dumfries, Scotland, in the year
1H70, and who was the ancestor of
Witherspoon, one of the signers of the
declaration of independence, and a
descendant of John Knox.
The family is Scotch; by sojourning
in Scotland was called Scotch-Irish, and
they are and have been since the days
of John Knox, Presbyteriaus almost to
James Fleming, son of John, married
Mary Stuart in South Carolina, and to
them a son, James, was born. This
second James married Margaret Frier
son in South Carolina. He fought on
the side of the patriots in the American
Revolution at an early age, and died in
South Carolin, leaving surviving him
his widow and four sons Thomas F.,
John I)., William Stuart and James
Sidney. These four came with their
mother and kindred of the Frierson,
Armstrong, Stephenson and Dickey
fitmilies, to Maury County iu H17, and
settled near Zio'n Church at the old
homestead which was held bv the
Thomas F. Fleming branch until lsiiti,
when it was purchased by James Sid
ney Fleming and still belongs to his
family. On this tract is the "Cave
Soring,'' from which ever since the land
whs tirst settled by them in 1S07, the
Fleming family have procured their
water. Near by is Zion Church, where
they have worshipped God all these
years, the present building being the
third erected on that spot; the
first one having been built before they
made for themselves dwellings. Iu
that church-yard near by all of their
dead have been buried. No wonder
then that they dearly love the spot, and
no place could be found more appro
priate for the meetings thn the
Academy lot where so manv of them
received'their tirst lessons in learning.
This place might well furnish another
scene, like Drumtoehtv, for the
sketches of love and faith, of happy
days and sad scenes, of strong and stal
wart characters so sweetly portrayed by
the pen of Ian McLaren.
Five generations were present, but
the first two were only there in granite
shaft, mossy mound and memory's
treasure halls. With them the Alabas
ter box of precious ointment lives
spent in service to God had been
broken, and the fragrance of their
noble traits inspired by simple faith,
yet tills the places thatonce knew them.
W. M. Fleming, the oldest of the name,
W. Ii. Fleming and Mrs. Ann W. Ket
trell belong to the second generation,
but were prevented by the weather
from attending. The third generation
was composed of fathers and mothers
whose hearts rejoiced to see their chil
dren romp and play together, enacting
amid the same surroundings the
same scenes that they themselves had
done. The fourth and fifth generations
were living in the joyous present, full
of buoyant life and heedless of the past.
From the youngest (who hid her
bottle of milk" under her little apron
aud drank it in supposed secrecy be
hind an umbrella) to the sweet girl
graduate who claimed and received the
gallant courtesies of her stalwart
cousins, the happiness was complete
and unalloyed. Some tears flowed, but
from eyes that followed the pleasant
past longingly into the distant beyond.
"God be with you till we meet again,"
was the parting song, and another
happy day must he numbered with that
part of eternity which lies behind us.
