E. H. Barton Dead--Lecture at
School House-Mission
ary Societies Meet
Mr. E. H. Barton, one of Eas
ley's oldest citizens died after a
lingering illness last Monday
afternoon. Mr. Barton was 82
years old last July. His wife
preceeded him to the grave only
a few mcnths. Four children
survive them. Mr. James E.
Barton, of Anderson; Mrs.
Mamie McMahan, Miss Emma
Gunter, and Miss Nettie Barton,
of Easley. The bereaved fam
ily have the sympathy of the
community. The funeral ser
vices were held at his residence
on the corner of Hudson and
College streets Tuesday after
noon being conducted by his
pastor, Rev. E. V. Babb, assist
ed by Rev. D. W. Hiott.
A small number of people
assembled in the auditorium on!
the 13th instant, to hear an ad
* dress delivered by Col. V. M.
Flen ing, of'Greenville, on the
50th anniversary of the battle
of Fredericksburg. Mr. Flem
ing was in the battle and had a,
brother killed in the battle.
There were present four other
veterans who were in the battle
viz: J. W. White, W. F. Davis,
Laban Mauldin and T. J. Bow
en. Other old veterans were
present who enjoyed the ad
dress of Mr. Fleming. The U.
D. C. were present and furnish
ed music for the occasion with
Miss Fay Sellers at the piano.
Every old veteran ought to be
pensioned by the State. When
the call came for them to go to
the front, they yolunteered, left:
home and loved ones and made
bare their bodies to the the mis
sels of the enemy for four long'
years. When the war clouds
lifted and peace was declared,
these battle-scarred soldiers re
t irned home to find wreck and
ruin. With indomnitable ener
gy they went to work, and out
of chaos and deformity, they
h Ave brought order and beauty.
-God bless our veterans and may
their last days be their best.
The U. D. C. are to be congratu
lated on the success of the work
already done, and to be encour
aged to still greater achieve
ments. May their work con
tinue until in every school
authentic school histories shall
be taught, and our children
