A Righteous Verdict.
The supreme court has decided
that an illicit seller of whiskey maj
not collect for the stuff by process
of law. A man in Charleston re-|
ceived and sold on commission
whiskey, in violation of the state
law. He failed to make proper re
turns to the shippers, who entered
?nit to recover the money. The low
er court held against such a thing,
and now the supreme court has
affirmed that decision.
This is a righteous verdict. When
parties enter into a combination to
violate a law of the state, certainly
they should not be allowed to in
voke another law to protect them.
Such a thing would be a monstrous
perversion of law to shield and en
courage law breakers.-Abbeville
Copper Cap For Dome.
A fine pieee of beaten copp2r
work has just been completed by
Mr. T. M. Divver of the firm of
W. S. Divver cfc Ero., of which he
is justly proud.
The piece is the cap dome of a
church at Edgefield, which this finn
has the contract for covering, lt is
about 2 feet in diameter at the bot
tom and 3 feet high and is gradually
rounded to the top on which is a
copper ball. The whole thing had
to be beaten out with a round ham
mer, to the shape desired, and is
nearly as perfect as if done by ma
chinery. In fact there is very little
of this kind of work done nowa
days by hand, but occasionally a
tinsmith runs up against a proposi
tion that he cannot get done by ma
chinery, and he has to go back tc
the old-fashioned way.
Mr. Divver was equal to tin
emergency in this case, and tlx
I finished part shows that lie is i
master of his trade.-Andersoi
