machinery being out of the way, and
will tfrind the cotton grower more

has not been heard from since.
What he said was this : "That if

this was a slander on the South,
for we invariably spell the word

Accident to Rev. J. C. Abney.
Rev. J. C. Abney was one of the
party who started from here yes
terday at noon to attend Governor
Ellerbe's funeral at Sellers, huton
account of a bad accident he was
preveuted from going. While the
special was flying past Congaree
station at the rate of 40 miles an
hour Mr. Abney, who was sitting
next to au open window ou the
right side of the car, was stiuck on
the arm by , some object which
fractured the radius, the exterior
bone of the forearm. The acci
dent was rather mysterious. Mr.
Abney was rPdting his right arm
on the wiudow sill when something
struck it with such force as to
break the bone. It is thought that
a stick of wood fell from the tender,
struck a box car on a side-track
and rebounding, bit; Mr. Abney.
The marks of the lick were plaio?y
visible on the window sill, and it
wu8 evident that the blow inucd
have been accompanied by consid
erable force, so that one supposi
tion is that the object was thrown
at the train, but tb.it. seems im
probable.-'The State. June 9.

Address Fruin the Governor.
To the People of South Carolina:
In the. providence of Almighty
God, his Excellency, Wm. H.
Ellerbe, late Governor of South
Carolina, has passed to his reward.
I regret the sad eveut. which makes
it necessary for me to assume the
duties of Governor of South
Carolina. The constitution, how
ever, is mandator}\ 1 have taken
?the oath ol' office and assumed
formal control of tho executive de
partment to-day. I have thought
it proper to.addr^ss a word to the
people of the Slate.
I realize fully the responsibility
of the postion. I shall endeavor
to be faithful and conscientious in
the discbarge of duties which
! shall be mine.
ID the wisdom which devised
i our system of government three
distinct departments were made
-the legislative, the executive,
the judicial-to make the laws,
to execute the laws, to interpret
the laws. Under our own con
stitution they are to "be forever
separate and distinct from each
other," and no person exerising the
duties of tbe one shall assume to
discharge the duties o?: tho other.
It is a wise provision. My duty
mainly is to see that the laws aB
placed on the statute books by the
legislative department are en
forced. This I shall attempt todo
faithfully and impartially, and
without fear or favor, following
only where duty points.
lu doing so, however, I ask and
shall expect the hearty cooperation
of every officer in South Carolina,
whether he holds a State office, a
county office, or an office under a
municipality. Not only so, but I
ask the hearty support and encour
agement of every citizen of South
Carolina in the enforcement of
law, in the promotion and advan
cement and progress of our own
commonwealth. I realize the
impotency of of any officer, however
faithful" he may be, who does not
have this support.
We are on the eve of a gi eat
industrial advance-in manufac
ture, education, commerce, and
agriculture-and I stand ready to
contribute; my part as citizen and
officer lo this forward industrial
movement, and to do anything in
my power for the welfare of my
people- I have no political
punishments to inflict and no
polifical rewards to pay. It shall
be my aim and steadfast purroso
to give the people of the State a
strictly business administration,
and to be the Governor of all tho
people. To this end I seek their
sympathy, their counsel, and their
prayers, praying myself that peace
and happiness and prosperity may
como to every home in South

A Magnificent Home;
Aiken, June 6.-Judge George
Beckwith, a New York millionaire
banker, merchant and jurist, has
just purchased Kalmia, a beauti
ful suburb of Aiken, S. C., upon
which he will erect a residence
which will be second in the South

N. C. The residence will be sit

seventy-five t:cies of land; There
will be thirty-seven rooms, above
the average _si/.e, fronting * hall
way twenty-two feet wide and

room will be a dream of luxury
and spaciousness. It will be nine
teen by. thirty-seven feet, and ad
joining a dining room nineteen by
t'venty-four feet and a consHrvra
toiy eighteen by thirty-two feet.
From Judge Beckwith's hospitable
board may be viewed this conserva

which will supply lights Lot only

Tis a weary world, dear boort, I know,
There's many a cause for a sigh,
Buh, surcease comes for the work and
In the beautiful bye and bye;
And the tired heart and the fevered
Will find from the stern behest
Relief from all the rack and pain,
For "over the stars is rest."
For the trial here is a triumph there,
For a pain is a palm on high,
And a laurel wreath f jr a thorn of care,
Awaits in the bye and bye;
And a jeweled crown for the cruel
Is kept for ihe faitnful blest,
A crown of gold-no earthly dross
And "over the stars is rest."
So the labo^of love is never vain,
Or the.weariness or the sigh,
And the purple blood from the heart
Is the pledge of the bye and bye ;
Tnen work away,;; dear heart, and
If ever we do our best,
For all of the wealth of work and woe
