GONE TO HIS REWARD
I
Wrn F Jeffries who was a Promi
S nent Business Man Passes
Over the River of
5
Death
MANY FRIENDS ATTEND THE FUNERAL
The announcement of the death of
Mr W F Jeffries on last Wednesday
evening brought expressions bf sorrow
and regret from as many people as any
death that this community has sustain
ed for a long time His sickness was
generally known throughout this part I
of the country and many inquiries
were daily made as to his condition and
while death was not unexpectechyet its
announcement saddened many hearts
He had been confined to his b dfOr
twentytwo days and only at short in
tervals was really conscious of his real
condition The cause of his death was
bilious poison though for a few days
when first attacked some fever was
evident All that njeflieal lskilI and
good nursing coUldK failed to accom
plish the purp sought
As a tnwinifight citizen a man of
convictlbnd courage without policy
rigedly honest and thoroughly reliable
under all circumstances and conditions
ha had no peer As a business man he
enjoyed the good will and wishes and
shared as liberally hrthie patronage of
the people in this part of the country
as any man could hope to enjoy and
well and truly he deserved the confi
dence of every one Having been xintf
mately associated with him in business
and afterwards almost as closely in
touch with his trapes ambitions and
desires we feel that no one more fully
appreciated his real worth a dwe can
only say that Columbia has never lpst
a truer or more upright man He had
as many true friends as any man in
this section and none were acquired or
held as an asset by deceptive means
but only through plain living and square
dealing
s
S
He was born in Russell county No
vember the nth 1848 but removed
with his parents to this county while
very young andwas reared on a farm
under the inspiration of energy and
honesty which he retained through all
his life He was amember of the Zion
Baptist church and lived up to his pro
fession all along the trying periods
of life and died in the faith that beck
on on to a happier existence
Forming a partnership with his two
sons and engaging in the Hardware
business success has been attained to
a marked degree and while in activ
life before age had time toreduce hs
energy with a prpsperous business a
well provided home and happy family
thesummons came His parents Mr
and Mrs T P Jeffries passed over
the n ver some f e wyears ago A broth
I
er two pr three sister wif two sons
and two daughters survive
The funeral services were conducted
J at the residence by Eld Z 1 Williams
Rev Hulse and assisted by Rev Cur
rie in the presence of many relatives
and friends who met to pay the last sad
rites to an honest upright man who
will be greatly missed in the moral
social and business circles of our town
A husband a father whose good name
is a priceless heritage a legacy that
will abide and be an inspiration
We feel that one of our best friends
has been taken and our sympntfiy as
well as a great host of others are with
the bereaved family It has been said
that an honest man is the noblest work
of God and truly Mr Wm F Jeffries
was honest in all his dealings
The interment was in the city ceme
tery a large circle of friends and rela
tives present and beneath a mound
covered with flowers his body rests
Love for his memor tand sympathy for
the bereaved wife and children

i Suppression of News
ISuppression 5
One of the problems an editor has to l
Ie
meet is the often repeated requests of
prominent citizensfsometimes valuable
I
patrons of the paper thai this or that
j item of news be withheld from publica
tion This is a problem of special diffi
culty in the smaller cities and towns
In the larger cities such requests are
not so frequently made and it is easier
to follow a general rule on the subject
l Speaking of cases of this kind in which
the matters whose suppression sought
constitute legitimate items of newEL
r the Oberlin 0 News says
j People come at the newspaper with
i the timeworn warning that it will do
no good to publish these things
Publicity is regarded as being almost if
not quite as potent a preventive of
law breaking as the fear of punish
I ment and the effect of publicity should
I be considered before rather than after
the commission of offenses Tms fear
makes the work of the officers of the
law easier and the publics hould know
what is going on in the local courts
Newspapers usually are glad to with
hold the publication of news which
might prove injurious to the good
names of any individual or work harm
to his business but there is a class of
peoplewho make a habit of trying to
suppress everything with which some
of their friends are connected Many
years of experience teaches us that rid
newspaper ever made any friends or
realized any benefits from suppressing
the legitimate things the public ought
to know
