In the notice of the death of Mi

Advertiser stated that he was
nephew of Col. Preston Brooks an
of Capt. J. Hampden Brooks, omit

his other uncle, Capt. James Cai

The resolutions which follow thi
short sketch are the loving expr?s
sion of the members of the "ON
Niuety Six District chapter Daugh
tere of the American Revolulion"fo
one of the charter members of tb ii
Emeline Rebecca Mirna was bon
near Meeting Street,Edgetield coun
ty, February 8, 1877. When yet s
child her parents, Mr. and Mrs. M
H. Miras removed to Edgefield am
occupied the ancestral home of th<
Minis family.
Linie Mims was married Apri
10, 1906 to Mr. J. Horde Allen
Two children, John and Rebecca
died in infancy. This fact is easy t<
record, but the experience was bit
ter. No human pen can ever portray
the peculiar sorrow of father and
mother bereft of their children ol
tender years.
Mrs. Allen after a very short ill
ness with pneumonia, passed a wa}
from her happy home in Edgefielc
in the early morning hours of De
cember 31, 1916, having succumbed
to the disease on Christmas day
she had enjoyed the preparation*
for the holidays and had helped tc
till the Christmas stockings for tht
two children. Margaret and Albert,
the comfort and delight of the home.
As a charter member of the "Old
Ninety-Six" chapter, D. A. R., Mrs.
Allen was a descendant of several
lines of Revolutionary ancestry, all
of whom had been among the early
and honored makers of Edgefield
town and county.
One of the last meetings which
Mrs. Allen attended just before
the Christmas holidays was a meet
ing of the D. A. R. There she was
looking so well and found such.real
enjoyment in the program that those
who saw her theu remember her as
haviug been unusually happy and
young and full of hope. Her pass
ing oat has caused great sadness
in the chapter.
Whereas our Heavenly Father,
through His unerring wisdom and
unfathomable dispensation and
through thal perfect foresight which
is so infinitely deeper and superior
to that of man, realizing that the
time was ripe, and the fruit ready
to be gathered in, folded back the
veil of eternity, set the gates ajar,
and beckoned unto Mrs. Linie M.
Allen with the hand of love, bid
ding her to cross to the other shore,
and there to entei into the hom^
prepared for,her, to which home in
the far away spirit land, w?fted up
on the gentle zephers of God's eter
nal love, the soul of that noble wife,
mother and member of the D. A.
R's. took its flight.
And whereas Linie was one of
our most valued members, always
responsive to the call of duty, ever
ready to do her uart.
And whereas we realize that her
vacant chair will be, always, a
source of many pleasant memories
as well as of greatest madness, to
our membership, Therefore be it
resolved :
1st. That whereas God has seen
tit to send the messenger of Death
into our ranks and remove there
from Linie Muns Allen, our order
h:is suffered a great loss, she beii g
one of our most faithful workeis,
but realizing that He doeth all
things well, we therefore submit
most humbly to his will.
2nd. That in the death of Linie
Mims Allen the Ninety-Six District
chapter has lost a member whose
untiring efforts and zealous labors,
and whose faithful discharge of
duty as registrar, have added much
to the material progress and wel
fare of our organization, and that
she will be greatly missed; and
though she be absent, the fond and
cherished recollections of the past,
will linger in our midst.
Be it further resolve! that a page
in our minute book be left blank
and dedicated to her memory; also
that a copy of these resolutions be
spread upon our minutes and that
a copy be sent to the family of de
Respectfully submitted.

being a fine Christian woman of the
best type of our Chinese Baptists.
And now this will particularly
interest you there at horne. When a
committee of South Carolina breth
ren, most of them members of your
church, undertook the support of
Mr. Sn negs and his wife until they
were re-appointed by the board and
sent to open up a new work at Pak
Hoi in another part of this same
Canton province (or state) he, with
the financial and mural support that
some of us could give, as in Honan,
fitted it up for a Baptist chapel, es
tablishing another schools for giris,
that was three quarters of an hour's
walk from one other school there,
so there was no possibl? semblance
of conflict, established a school for
boys; located a Chinese pastor
baptized a little band of converts
and finally organized a church, the
fifth Baptist church of Canton city.
Just before our return from fur
lough. Brother Suuggs having gone
to his new field, where he has now
gotten a good start, I am glad to
say-he deserves success-the mis
sion, at the board's suggestion, vot
ed to put the work on Honan
(South Canton) in our charge and
we came back to take up that and
all our former evangelistic work
(field work), and more, and we were
rejoiced to find the Honan church
getting a good start, having 48
members (14 of them added by bap
tism and four by letter in 1915,)
having raised the equivalent of over
8100 in American mouey towards
self-support during the year, that
was a good start, and having a:
Sunday school with eighteen mem
bers. In other words we found a
live, growing church which reflects
ureat credit on its builders.
Several months ago a fire Rwept
up the street to within one house of
the chapel, a narrow business hou"e,
whose walls adjoined the chapel and
was extinguished partly with water
from the baptistry. On the other
side of the very narrow streets, as
most Of the .streets are in Canton',
the fire destroyed the house exactly
opposite our chapel and was put
out. Now listen
A few days ago wife ind I re
turned from a two week's trip which
I have just written up for the
Courier, to find, that, a large fire,
destroying -sixty-four houses, had
swept dowD that street, both sides,
from the opposite direction from
which the other tire had come, had
destroyed the house opposite the
chapel again, and had also destroy
ed the one next to the chapel, their
wails also adjoining, damaging the
chapel, but not necessitating more
than rebuilding a cracked wall, re
pairing the roof, &c, and there the
lire was put out partly with water
from the baptistry, for the native
pastor had baptized a convert two
hours before. The heathen are say
ing that it pays to be a Christian,
and others are saying that it pa>s
to be a Baptist! This much is true,
if Edgefield got a better church
after her fire, and Honan thus nar
rcwly'escaped two tires since then,
we ought at least to rejoice tba?all
things can work togetbei for.gd?d?
And we do, and as we'lookiforward
to worshipping with that lillie con
gregal ioD again to-morrow and
regularly, between trips to the oth
er churches and chapels and schools
committed to the charge of us two
with the help of some splendid
native preachers and teacheus aud
Bible women and cilporters, we do
so with renewed faith and hope and
love. We can count on your prayers

to belipve it at first hearing, we
feel secure in accepting its truth
now. The following experiencej>f
an Edgefield woman is continued
after thr-t years.
Mrs. K L I jowe, Cedar Row,
Edgefield, says: "My back had both
ered rae for months and I became
weak and all run down. From other
symptoms, I knew tl at mv kidneys
were at fault and as Doan's kidney
pills had rid another of my family
of kidney trouble, I d Td n't hesitate
to try them. They gave me quick
and positive relief." (Statement giv
en April 12, 1911.) No trouble
since. More than three years later
Mrs. Lowe said: *I have had no oc
casion to use Doan's kidney pills
for some years, as they cured rae of
all symptoms of kidney disease.
There is no better medicine for kid
