Death of Splendid Young Man.
The home of that good man and
and sterling citizen, Mr. D. E. Lan
ham, is again bereaved. The peo
ple bf Edgefield were shocked Mon
day when they leaaned that Fred
Lanham, the youngest son, of Mr.
D. E. Lanham, died early Monday
morning. He had been ill but a
a few hours, acute indigestion be
ing the immediate cause of his
Fred was deservedly very popu
lar and was widely beloved. Full
of energy and ambition and being a
young man of exemplary habits, it
seems strange from a finite stand
point that he should have been sud1
denly cut down on the threshold of
young manhood. He was just nine
teen years of age and completed
the course in agriculture at Clemson
last year. We are told that "Death
loves a shining mark." The Great
Giver of every good and perfect
gift had some plan for this young
life which the human understanding
and vision can not discern.
Fred was a member of Republi
can church, where the funeral was
held Monday afternoon, his pastor,
Rev. J. T. Littlejohn, officiating.
The Advertiser extends sincere sym
pathy to the bereaved father, sisters
