Death at Fountain Inn of the Wife of
Mr. S. A. Franks.
Mrs. Margaret Hairston Franks,
wife ?>t" Mr. Samuel A. Franks, died
at her home at Fount tain Inn last
Wednesday afternoon, aged 55 years.
The deceused had been In declining
health for several months and, while
her death was not unexpected, it was.
nevertheless, a slun k to her family
am' relatives, and Is regretted by a
lai circle of friends and acquaint
ances in Laurens county where she
spent most of her life, the family hav
ing moved to Fountain Inn about 12
years ago. In addition to her hus

The New Waltz.
The young people who Indulge In
the giddy mazes of the wait?, will
hear with Interest thai the heads of
Washington and New York society
have declared that a "sitting out"
wait/, will ho more fashionable from
now on than dancing. The "sitting
out" embodies the same position as
dancing, the only ulft'erence is that
you i- it instead of dance. The man's
tight arm is around the girl s waist
while his left hand holds her tight.
Her left hand is placed on his shoul
der, while her bead rests lovingly on
bis bosom and all they have jo do is
to sit and listen to the music.
Now, that is something like it. We
have always regarded it as quite a
nuisance to gallop a mile or two. a
room full ot people sitting around on
sofa^ hugging to music is more to our
notion. This will give the old rheu
matic brethren another good chance
to wait/. Most men waltz. Iiol for
the dance but for the position, and
while many a man may lose his appe
tite for dancing, he has to get power
ful old before be loses his appetite
for hugging a pretty girl. Greenfield
