Prompted the Deed.

with a handsome young lady in
Augusta, and spent much money
on her, keeping her supplied with
rare flowers and presenting her
with a number of jewels. ' When

with her, but his action was not re

fame on South Broad street by

Why Reynolds took his own life
is something of a mystery, It is
thought by some he did it on ac
count of his wife's unfaithfulness.
It is believed, too, that he put an
end to his career because he had
run through a small inheritance.
He was apparently under the in
fluence of liquor and seemed to be
in good spirits when he went to
the house. He was nervous, how-,
ever, despite his free and easy hu
mor. On several occasions he went
out on a piazza, but no special at
tention was paid to this, as it was
supposed he was only going out to
get ice water; But it was not ice
water he went out for.
He was worried in mind, and to
end his troubles took a large dose
sofa about 3 o'clock, and suddenly
fell t > the floor. Those in tbe room
rushed to his side and found him
jmconscious. This alarmed the
- inmates of the house, and ice wa
ter was freely applied to the un
conscious man. This and other
methods of restoration were used,
but to no effect.
Reynolds remained limp and
lifeless to all appearances. Toe
proprietress of the house summon
ed Dr. Nichols, who went imme
diately to the unconscious man,
but he found that there was little
or no hope for his recovery. A
general congestion had set in. The
doctor believes that the chill had
existed from the beginning of xm
consciousness. The congestion con
tinued until ensued. Upon careful
examination it was found from the
appearance of the pupils of the
man's eyes that very little of the
morphine taken had been absorbed
up to the time that the doctor had
arrived, this being prevented by
the congestive chill.
Although fully aware that the
man was beyond human aid, the
doctor made every effort to save
him by the use of the remedies
usually applied in such cases.
After working for two hours he
gave the case up.
.Reynolds was finally carried to
St. Joseph's infirmary, but he had
scarcely been in the infirmary
fifteen minutes when he expired.
A search was made of his pockets
and a red envelope containing
about a grain of morphine was
found. It is presumed from the
folds of tho paper that it originally
contained, five grains. The name
of the druggist did not appear on
the package, and it is impossible
to learn from whom the drug was

of the dead mart's trousers.
Reynolds was twenty-five years
old. He was originally from Edge
field, S. C., and came here some
months ago as a motorman on the
Barnard street line. He held the
place until March 1st, when he re?
ceived a legacy ftom his mother's
estate. He realized from this
$1,000 in cash, and a small farm.
He took the money and sold the
farm, and with what he could get
together went on a drunk. With
the going of his money went his
friends and he soon realized that
he was broke. He was out of "em

A Profitable Potato Season.
The Irish potato season, which
has just ended, has been most
profitable one on the eastern shore
for years past. The shipment has
been larger and the prices have
been and are yet the very top of
the market. During the past three
weeks over 2,500 car loads of pota
toes have passed over the penin

Cape Charles alone amounted to
between eight and nine thousand
barrels, or fifty car loads. The

A Wonderful Watch.
A mechanical marvel lately ex

Catherine. It is about the size of

with the. Roman sentinels. On
pressing a spring the stone rolls
away from the tomb, the sentinels
fall down, the angels appear and
the holy women enter the sepulcher,
and the. same chant which is sung
in the Greek church on Easter eve
is actually performed.

THE DISPENSARY LAW.
By Mrs. S. F. C Hap in in Southern
It was my privilege on last* Sab
bath evening, July 16th, to be pres
ent at the Citadel Square Baptist
Church, where the Rev. David
Ramsey, the pastor, was announced
to preach. His topic was to be
"Religion and the New Liquor
The day had been intensely hot,
and what seemed to be a gathering
storm was evidently, approaching,
but neither pretentious clouds nor
rumbling thunder prevented a
large congregation from filling the
house and occupying .the gallery. | j
Quite a number of colored people
were also present. All denomina
tions were represented, showing the
deep and universal interest felt in
the subject to be discussed.
Mr. Ramsey, after the opening \
exercises, read most impressively f
the 13th chapter of Romans, and g
took as his text part of the first t
verse : "The powers that be are or
dained of God." Ile said some
people thought the pulpit had no
right to discues "the temperance
question," but he believed that
everything connected with the wei
fare of society and the salvation
of souls came under the conscien
tious minister's line of subjects for | c
discussion; and as intemperance
was admitted bv all to be the great- t
est curse of tho age, he proposed 1
to speak from a religious stand- c
point of the new law passed for its c
First, he asked, what is the South T
Carolina law, and with whom did 1
This he answered by saying, not | .
by Governor Tillman or the poli
ticians, and yet it meets its bitter
est opposition from the ill will of
those who object to it because of
the great load of prejudice they
feel toward the Chief Executive
and his party. It is being most
bitterly attacked from every direc
tion. and if it lives it will havel9
ito Tjr\/aueBi '^Bsancsw' cr" any law
ever enacted in any State; but 1
Governor Tillman is not responsi- 3
ble tor it.
The liquor traffic had become so
law-defying and intolerant that
thoughtful citizens all through the
country felt and determined that
it should be crushed out, and by a
majority of ten thousand votes de
manded absolute prohibition. The
people in the State did it.
There has been a great educa
fcional force at work in the State
for years for the shutting up of the
saloons by law. The Legislature
did not pass the law absolutely
prohibitory, but provided for the
sale of liquor by responsible men,
guarded by restrictions almost
amounting to prohibition, or if the
freeholders preferred prohibition
out and out, all they had to do was
to refuse to sign the petition for a
dispensary. As a Christian man
and a prohibitionist, I could not
sign a petition for a dispensary,
although it is infinitely better than
the licensed saloon and a long step 11
towards absolute prohibition. I
have travelled this State from one
end to the other. It is my native
State. I have talked with the
warm-hearted, honest men who
wear the wool hat and support
this bill, and whatever a few poli-1 \
ticians may have in view I do be
lieve the bill was honestly framed
to benefit all the people, and with
no intention tc make money out of
the law, and with no malice in the
world against our beaatiful his
toric City by the Sea, so full of j g
valiant deeds and precious memo
ries. He deprecated any and every
effort to cr?ale division between
the sections ; and as he spoke ten
derly and lovingly of the little
State, with its head nestling among
the mountains and its feet laying t
in the waters bf our beautiful bay, 1
whose brave sons at the first signal i
gun which sounded in our harbor *
rushed from their mountain and c
midland homes to stand shoulder t
to shoulder with their brothers in ?
the City by the Sea for the protec- I
tion of their State, eyes filled with 1
tears; and when he said 'IL've t
my State, every foot of il, and as i
a Christian and a patriot I will c
respect those who by her votes are
placed in authority, and obey the
laws upon her statute books," the
looks of approval and acquiescing
nods from the young men, who
were out in force, showed Lincoln's
oft-repeated saying, "You can fool
all of the people some of the time,
and some people all the time, but
you cannot fool all of the people lt
all the time," was correct. Defiance
of law, he said, can only result in
anarchy and a reign of violence,
and no Christ ian patriot would ad
vise such a course. No matter if
the laws are passed by men of your
own choice or not. Hero was Em
peror at the time Paul enjoined
obedience to all law and said "The
powers that be are ordained of:
A strict execution of law is
necessary for the well-being of

BUMED TESASUEE FOUND.
A Pile of Old Gold Coins Unearth
ed in Spar tanbury County.
Mr. W. H. Lyles returned to
the city yesterday from a stay at
his summer home at Landrum's
on the Asheville and Spartanburg
road, the State .line. He tells the
story of the remarkable find of
buried treasure upon the plantation
adjoining his place by a poor
white farmer. The treasure is all
in gold coin, some of the coins
being 175 years old. All of it is
the coin of foreign countries and
the dates range from 1719 to 1792.
^?A few days ago a white farmer
was ploughing in the field. Hie
pl?w turned up two of these gold
coins. He picked them up and
went ahead. His wife came along
shortly afterwards, hoeing. She
dug up two mort-. Then they stop
ped work and went back to the
spo?i beginning to dig. In a short
time they unearthed a pile, with
no other covering than the earth,
of over 100 of the gold coins,
?ach one of them was as bright
and shiny as if it had just come
from the mint. The money value
of the gold itself is about $500.
Some time ago fhe same farmer
dug up an old skillet near the
same place. It it supposed that
the coins were buried therein.

found formerly belonged to

In spite of improved modern

they cannot so easily tread the

more manageable than those of the
sixteenth century. Even yet, how

Thought She Was 111.
An extremely ludicrous incident
occurred in a Lancashire church
on a recent Sunday. A young lady,
evidently astrauger, of a naturally
pale complexion, accidentally let
her handkerchief fall on the floor.
By repeatedly stooping to reach it
furtively she attracted the notice
of a gentleman in the pew behind,
who thought she was about to faint.
With the best of motives, there
fore, he took her gently under the
arms and raised her up, gently to
her surprise. As she tried to re
lease herself another gentleman
went to her assistance, and before
the young lady knew what was the
matter they were moving her out
into the aisle.
Naturally she was too much as
tonished to find words for protest,
and they had managed to half
carry, half lead her some distance,
when she directed an appealing
look to another gentleman in a
pew, as if asking him to help also.
He, too, promptly rose from his
seat and helped to lift her up and
carry her into the vestry room.
There she recovered her powers of
speech and mutual explanations
soon exposed the ludicrousness of

must be room for at least fifty. ?
As this is the oldest county workp*
in existence, there are yet many .
problems unsettled, and hence this.0
convention will be of great inter
est and importance.
Every Association in the county?^!
is urged to send a large delegation |B
of active members. Ministers of r
tho Gospel and members of even- J
gelical churches everywhere are
given a cordial invitation.
All the sessions of the conven-^
tions will be open to the public.
From the programme soon to be
issued, it will be seen that the va
rious subjects will be discussed by |
many of our ablest men at home M
and abroad. nj
The prayers of God's people are ||
asked in behalf of this gathering.
