WEDNESDAY, APR. 1, 1896.
JULIUS J. FLEMING ESQ.
' In tlie year 1892 the subject of this
notice disposed of his possessions in
the town of Sumter S. C., where he had
lived for forty odd years, and, together
with his wife, in June of that year re.
moved to Edgefield to spend his re
maining days with his daughter wJio
had provided a home for her parent8
Mr. Fleming was born in Charleston
seventy-three years ago; Was educated
in that city and in Philadelphia and at
the University of Georgia where he
graduated with distintion. His ex.
penances in life were many and varied
Ile taught school for a number of years
and for rt time was president of a college
in Greenville Tenu. In the Of ties he
settled in Sumter S. C., and was there
editor of the Sumter Watchman and
Sum'er News. About the year 1865 he
was engaged oh the editorial and re_
portorial statt of the old Charleston
Courier-and his contributions to that
sterling old journal, of the ancient re
gime, were always gems of clearcut
thought and classic beauty. We heard
a distinguished South Carolina Judge
sav, on one occasion, that his writings
in the Courier \*ere "perfect models o'
pure English undefiled," and that he did
very much towards driving Radicalism
and the vanpires that fed on our theo
prostrate State from her borders. He
gave thc name "ringrstreaked and
striped" to the republican legislature
that first assembled in Columbia after
the reconstruction period of our history
and his description of the personel of
that body was of the richest and raciest.
In the sixties he was sent by the
Courier to Florida to write up the Land
of Flowers and eighteen letters en
titled "on the winff and on the wave*'
added much to his already high reputa
tion as a writer. Later he was sent by
the same paper with the Georgia Press
Association to write up the mineral,
industrial aud commercial wealth of
the Empire State-a work he did so
well that an ovation was tendered in
the city of Atlanta.
, Mr. Fleming became a member of the
Sumter bar in 1S67, practiced in the
courts of the eastern parts of the State
for twenty years, and his triumphs in
that arena were his greatest achieve
ments. Thc same Judge alluded t0
above, told us that the Sumter courts
were sometimes "called Fleming's courtg
because he had all the business."
And he also had travelled much,
had met many great ones of earth, had
seen and heard Calhoun and Clay a'nd
Webster; bad visited at their homes
Longfellow and Bryant and Holraes
and of these and of many others of the
dead past he had a wonderful store and
?ur.d of memories and incidents-a
most delightful raconteur. But there
is an end of all thing's ! Our old friend
esme to EdgelieId^o,die ; he told us so,
4nd"thaThe was prepared. His checks
on time bad all been cancelled/and hp
was ready for the last accounting. Hie
triumphs and his failures alike, "a*
prayers r,nd deeds, pierce starward like
t- sor g. and yonder skies hold records of
his toils and tears."-On Wednesday
morning last at the gray dawning he
died; on Thursday his remains were
laid to rest in our Baptist cemetery,
"where heaves the turf on many a
mouldering heap." But his spirit, ran_
seined redeemed disenthralled, i"l
already enjoying what, in mortal life,
the eye of faith alone can explors.

Mr. Brabham Last Sunday.
The great subject of missions isbehf
more and more agitated. The Christiar
world is awaking out of its apathy ant
indifference to the coming of the king
dom of Jesus, the Lord of Lords anti
King of Kings. On Sunday morning
last Rev. Mr. Brabham in the Metho
dist church II-ged the increase of mis
sionary interest, zeal, and enterprise.
He said "that the word of God had
lived to witness the Hebrew nation
descend from its exalted height among
the great peop'zs of antiquity to be
scattered as sheep without a shepherd;
that Grecian cities which had hated
God's word were crumbled into dust;
that proud Rome had lived to seethe
King of Zion hold sway over all her
conquered possessions, and kings of
armies did flee apace." Today great is
the company ol' those that publish
abroad the gla l tidings and "many of
the poor among men rejoice in the Holy
One of .Israel."
