pleasant affair in social circles dur
ing this winter was on last Thurs
day evening when Mr. Charles H.

Mr. Godwin received bis guests
with his young son, Charles, Jr.,
and the cordial welcoming which
they were given caused the guests
to know that an evening of rare
charm was to be theirs. Mr. God
win, who is equally as popular in
business and social circles, knows
how to extend hospitality in a most
lavish manner, and the occasion of

already well known popularity as a
host. During the evening punch
was served by Mrs. B. F. Godwin
and Mrs. Kader B. Crawford.
At eleven o'clock the guests were
asked in the dining room, in which

corations were white and pink car
nations, and on the other, white
and red, and the centerpieces on
each table corresponded with these

in courses and between these, with
Mr. Frank F. Pagan as toast mas
ter, Messts. John L Hassell, Harry
Biggs, Clayton Moore, and Kader
B. Crawford made short speeches,
after which toasts were drunk to
the health, happiness and prosperity
of the host. Miss Essie Peele was
the only lady who responded to a
call for a toast, and she made a very
hearty one to Mr. Godwin.
The evening passed as pleasantly,
as one could wish, and those who
were so fortunate to be there will
long remember Mr. Godwin's
charming home and his pleasing
mannee on this occasion.

Death oi Beulah May LiQey
On Thursdav, January 23rd.,
just a few minuter past eight
o'clock p. m., the death angel en
tered the home of Mrs. W. B. Lib
ley, and claimed the Lcri's own,
by taking back to him who nave,
the soul of Biulah May LiHey.
She wrr» boru on Juue :01b.,
189J, and was twenty seven
months, and three davs oM. From
her youth life w.s marked with
promise and pnrocs?, and her lova
ble disposition wan her many
friends, a ho, with, '.he family,
mourn her departure
She was first taken sick three
years ago, and gradually Rrew
weaker until she was uu«ble to go
out from her borne, and finally,
her weakness confined her to her
bed. About a year and one-half
ago, though too weak to go out 1
ouly occasionally, she desired to
attend service at the school house
near her home and receive baptism,
after making a public profession of
her faith in Jesus Christ The
next day she was baptized by Rev.
A. J. Manning, but has never been
able to attend another public ser
vice, though several services have
been held at her bedside. Her
faith in her Master never wavered,
and one of her last requests was
that when the end came, a Bible
should be placed in her band, and
she expre-sed her wishts about the
services which would be held over
her lifeless form.
Oa Thursday, she asked to ste
her friend and pastor, Rev A J
Manniug, who was away. He
reached Jfanie>ville'on the late train
and drove out to see her. On his
arrival Le clasped her band and
she expressed her pleasure r.t seeing
him again, at d so with her hand in
that of the mat of God, she passed ;
away almost instantly.
Saturday afternoon in thr pres
ence of a large number of relatives
and friend-, her body was laid to
rest in the family cemetery, Rev.
A. J. Manning conducting the ser
vices. The expression of love and
esteem was clearly demonstrated by
the great bank of beautiful flowers
placed upon her tomb.
Loved ones and friends regretted
to see her go. and everything was
done with loving thought to bring
her back to health. Her physician
wasexceediugly attentive, and used
every in a skilful manner to
allay her sufferings. No mother
and sistei were ever more attentive
than who ministered unto
her, sparine hot themselves in
watchfulness and loving care;
friends also, with greatest hope,
waited with loving patience for her
recovery—every comfort that hu
man effort could give was hers dur
ing all the weary days aud nights
of her suffering, but the Lord call
ed back to himself that which He
Mourn not fcr her who calmly lies
By God's own hand composed to
For, hark! A voice from vender sky,
Proclaims her blest—supremely
Wtth her the toil and strife are o'er
Her labor ended, her sorrows]
For she has gained the blissful

Mourn not for her, tborgh like a

But let no secret grief be kept

Look After Seed Beds
The extremely warn weather,,
which has not been equaled for its
intensity and length in years, has*
caused all seed below ground to ger
minate. A cold spell when the
earth would freeze, will have a
tendency to render the plant gtrmg.
in sttd. weak and useless. This
is very true of tobacco seed upon
which the crop of the coming
season depends. Plants lacking
vigor tind strength will produce a
crop of little morey value.
It is estimated that seventy-five
per cent of the tobacco farmers of
the county have planted their seed
beds. The weather has, without
doubt, caused the seed to germinate.
Unless special care is taken, there
will be a lack of plants and a cor
responding loss iu value as stated
above. To remedy the loss, the
beds should be re-planted, thus in
t-uring good strong plants for sett
-1 ing time. The farmers should not
neglect the beginning if they want
the end profitable. The seed and
plants ot any crop must be strong
and healthy to insure the splendid
returns for which the soil of the
county is famous.
We urge eveiy tobacco farmer to
plant for a good crop this season
and cultivate carefully. Start with
the plant beds first to get results
worthy of the tithe, labor and money
to be expanded. Indications are
that prices will be good for all
grades ot weed, but it is the rafe
plan to raise the best, for which the
demand is always great Don't
forget the pluut beds—sow again
and watch the results.
