REV. WILLIAM MOFFATT GRIER.
D. D., LL. D.
In thj deit^j or ihe Rev. Dr. Grier,
president of Er*ki?ie College, and
senior editor of tbe As-ociate Reformed
Fresbyterian, Ihc Srate loses one of her
best and noblest citizens The death
"of snch a man is nothing less than a
calamity to the Stale. Tho news of
Ma will brine deeo sorrow to
many in our community, for be bad
many warm personal friends among
oar people. He was well known all
over th*> State, and none knew bim
bat to love him, none named him our to
praise. He died at his home in Due
West, Abbeville County, at 8 o'clock
Sunday afternoon, Septembir 3rd,
from a stroke of appoplexr. Ho had
preached at Bethlehem Church, three
miles from Doe "West, in the morning
and was stricken shortly after reaching
home, and died in forty minutes.
Dr. Grier was the second son of
r>~? ? n Cnoi1 T> TV. for manv
IVC? 1|)? U* m~r . j ^
years president of Erskine College,
and one of the leading men of the
State iq bis day. He was boro February
il, 1848, and was therefore in
bis fifty-seventh year when be died.
He graduated from Erskine College in
July, 1860, and when the war broke
out the following year, be entered the
Confederate service as a private in the
6th Keglcaeot, S. C. Volunteer*. At
' the battl# of Williamsburg, Ya., May
5,1862, he was severely wounded, and
lost a leg in consequence of it. He
was taken prisoner and confioed for a
, time in Fortress Monroe, aDd was
afterwards exchanged, and honorably
discharged be :ause oi* the loss of his
limb Oar lamented General John
Bratton was a prisoner at tha same
time in Fortress Monroe, and in their
prison home there' grew up a friendship
between the two that lasted all
" their lives. A Federals officer, by the

in the bov prisoner, and showed
hioi mack kindness and many favors.
A few years ago they exchanged visits,
and renewed the friendship begun in
those bloody times.
Entering on the study of theology
the close of the war, he graduated
from Erskine Theological Seminary,
and was licensed to preach in April,
1S66. He accepted a call from the Associate
Reformed Presbyterian Church
at Allen ton, Ala., and there remained
until called in 1871 to take, the place.of
his father, who had tfied in March oi
that year as president of Erskine College.
In this honorable position he
remained until he died. He was also
professor in the Theological Seminary,
located at Due West, and was priocimi]
ft/K.'nr of the Associate Reformed
Presbyterian, the organ of the A. 11. P.
Synod of tbe Sonth. This is a brief
outline of tbe life of this good and
great man, for truly he was good and
he was gr^at.
In the home, be was gentle, loving,
and kind, a model husband and father.
In the councils of the Associate Reformed
Church be stood at the top,
and was the acknowledged leader in
?ii nrrtrb- Ac nrofiirtent of "Rrskine
College he wa3 a signal success. Of
brilliant intellect ^nd exceptional tact,
\ he inspired the ro3pect and gained the
love of ali the students. All over this
southern country are men whose lives
were touched and moulded for good

College in the dark days just after the
war* and through his ability and zeal
he has placed it in the front rank of the
institutions of oar State, flis loss to
the college will be very great. As a
preacher of the gospel, Dr. Grier had
few equals. He was a peerless orater,
anfl moved the multitudes with strange
power. Who that has ever heard
eim, in the palpit, or on the platform,

quence! His los3 to religious journalism
is very great, for his paper was
one of the very best of all the religious
papers.
A* we stand in the shadow of his
'loss to-day, we instinctively recall the
words of KiDg David, and feel that
they are appropriate now: "Know
ye not that there is a prince and a
great man fallen this day in Israel?'7
The Church and the State are better
for his hiving lived, and are poorer
since he died. Everywhere among us,
meD will be sorry for his death, but be
ha9 left a rich heritage of which his
* family and friends may well be proud.
To the college of which he was the
president, to the church of which be
was an honored leader, and to his
family bereft of its lovin.j head, we
extend our sincere sympathy. The
State will feel bis loss indeed, bnt
amnntr his own DeoDle will be felt the
keenest loss.
Ian Macl&ran tells as in bis book,
"Beside the Bonnie Briar Bush," that
when they came to bury George Eowe,
his mother standing beside the^coffln
of her son, thanked the neighbors for
their kindness to him. Drumshengh,
in his reply, voiced the sentiment of
the glen when he said: "Marget Hoo,
this is no the day for mony words, bat
there's jaist ae heart in Dramtochty,
and it's sair."
We are sure that these words are
trie in all the Associate Reformed
Chnrch to-day.

THE DREYFUS TRIA?
The Dreyfas trial is wholly unintelligible
to the average American.
The French system 01 aamimsiermg
justice is-ridiculous to us, win have
been accustomed to the English system
of jarispr.i 1e* se. j
On reading the detailed account of
| the trial from day to day, ths Amerijcan
can not help laughing at the
| strange rules of evidence which govern
the introduction of testimony, and
one naturally contrasts the mode of
trial with our own system. The contrast
is exceedingly favorable to our
method. The comparison tends t?
oive us a higher appreciation of our
n-' - ? - w __
courts and the laws administered by
tbem.
it sounds fanny to read how a witness
in the Dreyfus trial jumps up,
interrupting another witness with the
accusation that a lie has been told,
ft i<? strange to us that ,tbe accused is
a<?ke.J to reply in a mue speeuu u
testimony a? sooa a? it is concluded.
Perhaps the strangest thing to ns in
the Drey-fa* t-ial is tint witne>se* a^e
allowed thd greatest Ir.iitude in u-Kt*
in* hearsay evidence aui th?n **i.d i<
by expressing their opinion or it. For
instance, Col. Cordier testified Tncs lay
"thit he *vas absent from the intelligence
department when the bf-rI
dereau arrived, bat thht he believe'! it
I was received by Heury." Such evidence
as this would never haVv.* been
rece"v.->d in an fiagnsa or American
tribunal. If he was absent, he did
not know wben the bordereau arrived,
and as he vas not thore, his belief is
worth nothing.
Of cou-se, it impos?ibie. upon
6uch tesii-'uonv as i< adduced before
the French court, to predict svhat will
be the result of the trial. Strange
verdict* may be expected from courts
that empjoy such strange methods
in the search of trutn.
For quick work the Americans excel.
A few months ago the Britisk
Government wanted some steel bridges
placed in Africa. Time was an
important considera;ion and the United
States mnutacturers alone seemed
able to erect the bridge.in the required
time. A few days ago one of the
bridges was completed, and Lord
Ketchener made a speech and paid
this high compliment to this country:
"As regards this magnificent bridge,
it can fairly claim a record. Every
efiort was made in November and
December to place tlis order for it in
England, but it was found imposjible
to have it completed in tin necessary
time. Bat where Englishmen failed
1 am delighted to find that onr cousins
across the Atlantic stepped i". The
opening of this bridge to-day is due
to their energy, ability and the power
'the? possess in so marked a degree of
turning out work of this .magnitude
in less time than it can be done anywhere
else."

of trouble ."moogr cattle in the South,
and even in the North in summer, so
the governmen t wa? obliged to take a
hand in ir; there buve been several
stations established in various r>arts of
the counti y where Southern cattle
which are known to be infected with
the disease are dipped in a solution
which provt s a complete cure.
Up to this time most of the Northern
States have quarantined against
Southern cUtle, except when they

to he slandered at once Now quarantine
is raided for all cattle that nave
been dipped. In the North there is n?
danger in Winter, frost stamping out
the disease. It spreads among the cat,
tie by means of ticks; when first
batched thev are very small, bat grow
fast until whan of adult age they are
as large as a kernel of corn. The
femele then drdps from the animal to
the ground, lays scores of eggs and
then dies. The -eggs hatch in three or
four weeks and immediately begin to
climb upward on grass or weeds wailing
until an animal brushes against it
when it clings to it.
The first symptoms of the disease
are high fever, loss of appetite, arched
back and sucken eyes; the disease
developing rapidly and death ensuing
in a few davs. - The dipping cure is as
follows: Ziac lined tanks 40 ft long,
10 ft deep and 3 ft wide, are made with
zinc lining a.id high walls on each side
to prevent the solution from splash
ing. The tan? is nuea aimosi mu ul a,
preparation of dynamo oil with one
$nd a half per cent of sulphur. The
animals are driven to the tank where
they stand o-i a drop platform which
plunges them down into the tank.
They come out thoroughly wet and no
more trouble is experienced with the
ticks.
An experi-nent station has been established
here to test the cattle after
dipping, an t several hundred head
were shipped here last season, after
beiDg dipped at the Fort Worth, Texas
station. The ca?tle on arriving here
were placed under the supervision of
an assistant State veterinary, and be
lately gave .in account of the work
before the f t>mers' institute. Whtn
the annimalt- came they were divided
into five lot--, being sent to as manv
different fir ns and were allowed to
mix among Wealthy cattle. All sum'
mer they ran together but neither
Northern or Southern cattle showed
any svmpton s of disease, and though
they were in pected every week no: a
living tick was found on them. More
i than this (he veterinary brought somt
of the living ticks with him from the
Sonth and placed them on healthy
Northern cattle; in six days they began
to show a quicker pulse action,
their temperature gradually rose and a
tttooI- thpv died of Texas fever.
This di-covery is a great thiog for I
Southern cattle raisers as they have |
been practically at the m^rcy of the
bayers when sending cattle Xorth.

SOUTHERN COTTON MILLS IN DANGER
The American Cotton Trust, through
their representative, Johh E. SeiHes,
toe magnate ox ioe sugar u u??. uuu
promoter of the round bale, is putting
forth hi.s K<pneroies to secure' the
control of ii.o c-.Li.yj lactones of tbe
East. The New Yotk World, of
August 24th, referring to certain deah,
now in progress says: "The SearlesFlint
syndicate is acting for the American
(-otton Trust and the purchase of
the Fall liiver Mills, bonsisting of
2,235,312 spindles, is the peginning of
rvlanf ahsnrhintr all r.otfon nrint
mills hi the United States."
Some of tbe largest operators in cotton
cloth at the trade centers believe
that the Cotton Trust will succeed in
effecting the eonsolidation of the mills
under one general management thereby
largely increasing the productions
and materially lowering the price and
cutting the throats of the Southern.
spinners.
. Will not the same trust who are trying
to control the raw material in
round bales amalgamate the mills of
the South?
Farmers, ginners, manufacturers
and all persons interested in the cotton
business in the South .should make a
determined effort to thwart the plans
of this American Cotton Trust, tbe/
greatest octopus ever originated in our
country which may turn the profits of
Southern mill industry into the pockets
of the combination and deprive
our Southern stockholders from sharing
