V p: Tlift Ptass and Banner. BY HUGH WILSON. ABBEVILLE) S. C. d *$-Pabllshed every Wednesdp at. ?2 a year In advance. Wednesday, May 4,1904. Deatb Invadesonr Ranks. During the last week Abbeville has lost two of her best citizens, and the Jcareer of two merchants has been closed. William Shllllto Penney was called hence TOhllA T70* at thfi oortr throchnM nt llfo. Hflnri some in person, prepossessing In manner, and having an active mind and willing bands, he entered upon the duties and responsibilities of life, nothing doubtfng that good fortune would smile upon him all the way along a useful and happy life. William Shlllito Penney was bound to earth by all the beauty, all the hope and all the inviting prospects that could allure the young to a glorious future. Blessed In the love of an affectionate young wife, and having before bim the most plealng prospects, the world to bim was beautiful and lovely indeed, but on May 2, 1904, he died, surrounded by loving hearts. He had less than a year ago, married Miss Alma Spearman of Anderson, and it seemed that his cup of happiness was filled to the brim. But that was not all. Tbe business world opened up bright for him. Ahd he was, only a lew months ago, put at tbe bead of tbe Penney Clothing Company, and all i seemed well with bim in both his married life and bis business venture. But this beautiful picture is broken. His store is closed. Jtiis oriue is a wiuow, ana tue manly form which only a few days gave splendid promise of the pleasures, the honors and the realities of life, is no more. While we are all sorry on his own account for the premature taking off, yet a great multitude of friends are not forgetful of the aged parents whose unspeakable grief for the loss of their Benjamin, must be all that they can bear. He wbb the younger son of Dr. W. T. Penney of this city. He was a brother :of Mr. * George Penney, and one sister is .Mrs. J. L. Perrln, the other Mrs. Fred Hill. 1^0' ' The funeral services were held in the Methodist Church and William Penney now sleeps with his father at Long Cane. Active Pall Bearers?W. F.

Wilson, Lewis Perrln, James Hill. i Arohlhalfi flnnaloGB ttqb hnrn npnr the town of Abbeville, October 31, 1887, and died at bis borne In this city April 27, 1904. Suffering for months be died after long years of.honorable and ceaseless toll and anx ety. He fell aBleep as one who was weary, and who was ready for that rest which awaits the true and the faithful. fev In early manhood he was graduated from the South Carolina College, and for several years alter graduation he taught school In Abbeville. At the breaking out of tbe war be _ volunteered with the "Minute Men," under command of Capt. James M. Perrln. After serving for several months on Sullivan's Islftnd, the oompany was disbanded. On bis return from Sullivan's Island Mr. Douglass assisted Capt. Leroy J.Johnson In raising a cavalry company, which became part Of Black's regiment. Mr. Douglass remained in the service until the surrender at Appomat? Yv oue on ruriougti in 1863 be married Miss Ellzabetli WllBon, sister of Mr. Harvey Wilson. The surviving sonB are: George C. Douglass, now In the Philippine Islands, Wade H. Douglass, Harvey A. Douglass. The surviving daughters are: Mrs. Susie Evans, wife of John T. Evans of this county ; . .Mrs. Estella Hutto, wife of J. F. Hutto, of Livingston, S. C., and >llss Mary L. Douglass, who Is now living In Livingston, with her sis* i ter, Mrs. Hutto. The second marriage of Mr. Douglass was with Miss Margaret E. Lyon, daughter of Captain John Lyon who lived on theSavan. nah side of the county. She survives. In 1872 Mr. Douglass formed a partnership with Jacob Miller, and ever since then he has been In the general mercantile business. Mr. Douglass was noted for kindness of heart, as well as for evenness of temper. While he never aspired to be the leader of men, yet he waB never the follower of anybody. He had a logical mind and was a logical thinker. He always In his own way, reaohed the conclusions which he maintained as.^lght. In bis quietness and in his unobtruslveness, be wielded an Influence upon the mlndB of those who knew him. His stand ards of thought and action were the highest. Noman was ever more truthful or more honest than Archie Douglass. And if any man ever had a better heart within his breast we have not been Informed of the fact. The funeral service was conducted by his pastor, the Rev. P. B. Wells, at the home of tbe deceased. The body now rests in Upper Long Cane. Tbe Literary Club. ol The Literary Club met last Friday night at the home of Mr. Parker. Dr. F. E. Harrison read a most entertaining paper, reviewing the history of the club from its organization, (twenty-six years ago,) down to the present time. On motion Dr. Harrison was requested to deposit tbe copy in the archives of tbe olob. . *? Sv "The Lighthouse Kobbery." The above nlav was nut, on Tnpsdav and Wednesday nights at the Opera House, and received the highest praise and commendation from the public at large, and especially by those who had an eye for the stage and its beauties. Tuesday night, of course, drew the largest audience, and every one spoke in very flattering terms of our local actors and actresses. The scene of the rescue of the little waif by Tom, the fisherman, was beyond the expectation of the most critical, and tbeplay was in every way a brlliiant success, the actors and scenery were both true to life and recieved repeated applause. i ? ? - y., Letter to Gilliam Brut*. Abbeville, S. C. Dear sire: "Three-quarter paint" Is a good] phrase for the best outside of Devoe. la tha otunriorH mQflr it- 1(10 Tho next-best?there are several not far apart? are three-quarter paints; you may mark them 75 to Devoe's 100. The bulk of tbe paints in market are 40 or 50 or 60; a few are better than 60 ; a lew are worse tban 40. How do they act? They cover from one to 'three quarters as much as Devoe; and tbey ast from one to three-quarters as long as Devoe. What are they worth ? The same rule don't hold; it costs more to put-on some paints than they are worth; they are not worth anything; tbe "put on" oosts two or three times as much as the paint. Yours truly, 24 F. W.

T To cold draughts of air, to keen and cutting winds, sudden changes of temperature, scanty clothing, undue exposure of tbe throat and neck alter public speaking and singing, bring on coughs and colds. Ballard's Horebound Syrup is the best cure. Airs. A. Barr, Houston, Texas, writes, Jau.31, 1902: "One boltleof Ballard's Horebound Syrup cured me of a very bad cough.
