DEATH'S HARVEST.
"An Unfortunate Accident.
One day last week, while the two
little boys of Air. Crome.r, who live
near the Arsenal, were playing with a
sling, the older one aecidently struck
his little brother on the temple. The
blow did not hurt very much, and
little attention was paid to the place ...
until Tuesday night, when the little
fellow began to have convulsions,
and upon examination it was found
that the skull was cracked. An opera
tion was performed, and, at last ac
counts, the little fellow was getting
along nicely.
Mrs. Susie Daniel Towler.
The many friends of Airs. Joe Towler
were greatly shocked and deeply
grieved to hear of her death which oc
curred Wednesday morning at Price's
Infirmary, Philadelphia Airs. Towler,
accompanied by Air. Towler went to
Philadelphia alxmt two weeks ago. to
have an operation performed. After
the surgical treatment Air. Towler re
mained until his wife was able to. sit
up in bed some, and then being assured
by Dr. Price that all danger was past,
he returned home, arriving on the 3
o'clock train Wednesday morning.
About 9 o clock a telegram came
from Dr. Price announcing AIis. Tow
ler's sudden death from heart failure.
The remains , will not reach here
until Saturday morning at 8 o'clock.
The funeral services will be conducted
at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon at the
First Presbyterian church, and the
burial will be in Rose Hill cemetery.
Mrs. Towler was one ot the most
popular and beloved young women who
has ever made her home in Columbia,
and many hearts are heavy with an
unutterable sadness at the sudden end
ing of her bright young life. Young
aud cheery, pretty, bright and cordial,
she numbered among her friends all
classes and all ages. She enjoyed life
and loved to live ; and yet she was
prepared foi death, and not afraid to
die. To such an one the end is but
the beginniiig ; the sleep of the hotly
but the resurrection of the soul. Pa
rents, husband and child survive her,
and how sadly she will be missed only
hearts that have ached like theirs can
tell. But with her all is well. Her
sweet spirit will grow sweeter still
through countless years of endless ages,
while her frail, tired body is at rest.
Mrs. A. E. Williams.
Mrs. Annie Elizabeth Williams,
wife of Dr. Williams and mother of
Airs. A. P. McFerrin, died Sunday
morning at 5 o'clock, at the parsonage,
from pneumonia. A beautifully im
pressive funeral service was held at the
residence at 4 p. in, conducted by
Revs. Jno. P. AlcFerrin, W. A. Pro-
vine and A. S. Pettie. The casket was
hidden beneath the mound of rich
floral offerings, and at its head sat the
u ,'V- 1 au "If 1- iml": feelingly, as the choir did, 'In the
Christian's Home in Glory." The
Tne Summer Hymnal a Winner.
The success of the Summer Hymnal,
Air. John Trotwood Moore's book, is
most gratifying to Air. Aloore's
friends, here aud elsewhere. Tne
"Literary Digest," a high authority, re
ports it among the thirty best selling
books in the United States for Septem
ber, while in the two cities of Phila
delphia aud Kansas City it ranked
third among the six best selling books.
When you think of the increasing
number of books on the Alarket, and
the thousands sold daily, this means a
great -deal.
