BEAUTIFYING COUNTRY HOMES, 'The farmers as it class do 11ot Uiv< enough attettio'i to imilkoig ih<-ii homes attractive and biautiftil. 'ic cultivation of catton absorbs. tot much of their mnind. It ip verv s in pressive-and delights the taovelilc. public to pass a beautifully pnn1 c country home, with a nlice front iiyir of choice flowers or grove in lras Y,..ry often we see the front varand used for it barn. w,- see cotton, hin: par baskets, bar'ness, Sadd les, g4an sacks, saws, axo, steolyards, wngg cushions and buggy umbrellas etc lying around. And this will appi also to some of our towna folk. \V have seen all kind of clothing on lino in the front viranda on the mai streets. This is not good taste an gooi taste means using good sem and judgment. . Another point on thiS line is tIh: the farmers very often locato the barns, cribs, stables, ets., in front < their dwellings whicb detrcts fro the attractiveness and beauty of t1i home. All out build'ngs t-hould I in the rear of the dwelling. If ti land has been cleared ny to the fror gate, plant elms, mnples and wat< oaks in front of the house. Another point is that he fore should never bo cut oin the nort and went of a dIwelling and near li1 same. The timber serves as a win brake in the cold weather and make she home more comfortable. Otz forefathers did not ny~e their bruit sufficiently in locating their countr; homes and clearing their lands. There is nothing so impressive and pleasing an a fancy (olnltr'y home and nothinlv paVs so well in dollart and cents if the propelty is veI traded. Brains, paint and trees art what it requires to mioake i lo ely home. Again, the dwelling should neve be in less than 75 to 100 yards of th public highwvay thereby leaving root for a fine driveway proi'erly shiade< A landscape gardner shouild 11 emplloyed to lay out the location the dwelling, walk and divoway.

The editor of an Illinois paiper r, ceived the following note from a sul scriber: And it is applicable to mot everytown and we give it, hoping I give no offense to anyone. "A lady wants to say a few wor'i to the grocery merchants, and reall it is a delicate sub)ject to hamndl You know it is now time that or grocory men set their vegetables en side on the pavement, and you kno there are so many tali dogs in tont and it operates as though thes dram from Saratoga Medical Springa Now Mr. Editor, you must knmo' what I want to say and if you will will do the public a gr'eat favor. Whw we want is the vegetables or boxes, o in other words 'above high wvate mark.' For tbe good of wvomnen am mankind, the grocers wvill please at tend to it. Those screins therY 'mu over barrels and baskets are not 'w.: ter tight.'

It. and C(Itra Gantisaway, was born June 5th, 1855, in Pickens county, near Six Mile, and died Soptembor 21st, 1905, at his home on Twelve Mile river. Mr. Gassaway had do. voted his life to the farm and do lighted in his occupation. His farm wIs condcteld on the principle that what is worth doing at all is worth doing well. His well improved farm will show th marks of his industry for many years to ome 16 HO Was successful above the average, and set an examplo of thrift and onorv that, has not been lost on his acquaint ances. His constant el',rt was to make every row do its.very best. Ho was early married to Mliss Leonora Reed, the daughter of a a near neighbor. Together they lived happily, and now she is left to mourn her irreparable loss in his re. cent death. Mr. Gassaway was a man of more than ordinary force of character. In him word and honor all who kaew him had the utmost confidence. Ile hated a mean, low thing. Those who know him oest confided most in his integrity. Those who were re hated te him as tenant had the ul most respect for and confidence in him, and 'eldoma wanted to leave his 1)lce after a your's residence there lie will be inissed, for lie was in every sense 4 good citizen, a kind Ieigh bor, a loving husband and friend He leaves ono brother, .J. E. Gassa way, of Far mersville, TexI , and one sister', Mr's. Rosa Madden, of Clem' son, S. C.; also three nM1ce8 and one nephewv. His remains were laidl to rest in the old Gassanway cemetery near Central, wh'ere lies the dust of his mnother and other retatives. The funeral services wore conducted at the grave in thie presence of a large concouase of friends, by the Revs. At tawny, Johnson, Finley and Sebaid. He never connected himself with any church, but was alwvays a sincere be liever in the Christian religion and a true friend to the church and the ministers. He was greatly unlicited for the last, two years of hisi life, uundt during this time endeavored earnest Iy by penitence and prayer to pre- j pare himself for the great chnage I wvhiich he knew inevitabuly awaited him. Peace be to his aishes, and ( bh-assings rest upon his loved ones. _ A Friend. Ktowee Courier please copy. *HAIR BALSAM o Cheap Rati toTexasor Gy o A rkanshs, Louisiana, anid the Sou th. west.
