Joined Saintly Parents
On_ Wednesday. May . 12th, Mrs.
M. W. Roger*, dapped this life,
u or more than a year . her. health
had steadily declined, and during
the weeks just preceding thc end
she was a great sufferer. Before her
marriage Mrs. Rogers was Miss
Hattie Bell, the youngest child of
the lamented Mr. and Mrs. J. M.
Bell. Though she was cut down in
the prime of life, she had lived
long enough to reflect the teaching,
by example and precept, of her
saintly parents. And we doubt not
that, this the youngest member of a
once happy, unbroken home eircle
has joined her father and motlier in
that upper and better land. God
having called her, no human agen
cy availed to prolong the life of
Mrs. Rogers."Shehad the best medi
cal skill, and friends and loved ones
ministered to her unceasingly, but
nothing could stay the hand of
Death. The self-sacrificing devotion
of her husband during her long and
very trying illness was beautiful.
Our Rehoboth, correspondent pays
Mrs. Rogers a tribute, and writes
of the funeral service in his letter

A line of march' was formed'on
lower main street, and all marched
to cemetery where the graves of the
departed heroes were decorated. The
line of march was composed first of
the carriages containing the speaker
and other honored ones, then the
school children, each bearing small
confederate flags and garlands; next
the D. of C., each wearing the chap
ter badge, with the mourning side
upward; then the veterans.
A:cter the graves had been
decorated, all repaired to the audi
torium where the address of Miss
Grace Lumpkin, of Columbia, was
listened to. Miss Lumpkin is a rare
and gifted orator for one so young,
and charmed her hearers. Her youth
ful heart is filled with patriotism-;
and her address brought forth re
peated applause. At the conclusion,
she was presented with a hand paint
ed picture of L?eV home, ''Arling

The bestowal of the crosses of
honor was next on program, five

Work Weakens the Kid^
Doan's Kidney Pills Have Done
Great Service for People
Who Work, in Edgefield.
Most Edgefield people work every
day in ?orae strained, unnatural po
sition-bending constantly over a
desk-riding on jolting wagons or
cars-doing laborious housework';;
lifting, reaching or pulling, or tre
ing the back in a hundred and on?,
other ways. All these strains t?nd
to wear, weaken and injure the kid
neys until, they fall behind in their
work of filtering the poisons from
the blood. Doan's kidney pills cure
sick kidneys, put new strength in
bad backs. Edgefield cnres prove it.
Walter Dorn, Cedar Row, Edge
field, S. C., says: '? used Doan's.
kidney pills and consider them to be
a fine remedy for any trouble aris
ing from disordered kidneys. I was
a victim of kidney complaint for a
considerable length of time and my
back often pained me so severely
thai I could hardly do my work.
The kidney secretions also passed
too frequently and were unnatural.
Upon learning of Doan's kidney
pills, I procured a box and
since using them, 1 have been free
from pain irt my back and also from
the kidney weakness."
