A Relic of the Lost Cause.
A letter from a neighboring town

last week enclosed in an ancient look

"ConfederateStates of America,Treas

lege extended by that Government to
its officers having ceased twenty year:
ago the official character of the envel
ope was not enough to carry it to its
destination, and in another corner
was the familiar stamp-"U. S. post
age, two cents."

The shooting and killing of Mrs.
Sloan by her husband, John P. Sloan,
Tuesday between 12 and 1 o'clock, was
one of the most brutal and fiendish
acts ever perpetrated in Newberry. It
appears that he had been ill-treating
his wife for a long period, and a day
or two before the murder, the wife had
fled from her home In the country to
the house of Mrs. Christian, in town.
They had seven children, and the old
est a boy nearly grown, frequently re
sented his father's treatment. Monday
the father struck the boy with his fist,
drawing blood. The mother wished
to keep all the children to which the
On Monday night Sloan went to
Mrs. Christian's house and took three
or four of the children and carried
them home. The next morning, in
company with Mr. John Lane, he re
turned to town, and remarked on the
way that "the difficulty between him
and his wife would be settled that
morning." This was only a short time
before the murder was committed.
It appears then that he went to his
wife's house, as we are told, and find
ing her seated on the steps of the back
plaza, said, "d-n you, I have got you
at last, at the same time leveling his
pistol a few feet from her breast,
firing two shots immediately upon her
appeal to an old family servant who
was in the yard, to save her life. Sloan
told the man to keep still or he would
blow his brains out. Mrs. Sloan
immediately sprang forward and fell,
a little daughter supporting her mo
ther's head upon her lap. The mur
dered woman died almost instantly.
The Sloan% had a comfortable home
abundantly supplied, and it ought to
have been a happy one, but the father,
brooding over imaginary wrongs in the
settlement of property, descended step
by step to the dread inferno, whence
he has bereft his children In a moment
of dark passion of both a mother's love
and a father's care.
Sloan, who is about 40 years of age,
immediately fled on foot, evading his
pursuers. The Sheriff's posse is in
pursuit, but up to the hour of going to
press he has not been captured.
The General Health.
We learn from some of our exchan
ges that much sickness prevails in lo
calities. In our own county and im
mediate section some fever prevails
and we regret to add in several cases
it has been attended with fatal results.
Owing to the irregularity of seasons of
late and atmospheric conditions, there
are perhaps an undue amount of
malaria and disease-producing germs
in the atmosphere, to guard against
which, successfully, would require a
knowledge of physiological law and
hygiene,and an application of them,to
gether with comparative good health
on the part of the people to ward off
the approach of disease.
While we may not entirely over
come these evils, we can go a great
way in preventing some forms of dis
ease. Pure air, light and sunshine
are potent factors. A wholesome dieta
ry, light and nour!shing, together with
proper clothing, the bath, &c., alter
nate rest and recreation, when neces
sary, and seasonable:sleep, are all es
sential. While a cheerful, even tem
per, free from anxiety or a spirit of
unrest, will add very much to the
health forces. We all know the effect
of mind over matter. How the ever
renewed tale of- hope quickens the
pulse, brightens the eye and mantles
the cheek; and how on the other hand,
fear or grief can blanche the cheek
and stay the heart's beat. How corrod
ing the effect of the "ravel'd sleeve of
care," upon the weak and nervous.

Heaven's Best Gift.
There are more prizes than blanks
in the lotter of marriage. The giving
of Eve to Adam in the garden of Par
adise showed the love of God. She
was intended to be a help-meet, a comi
panion, a solace, a joy, a beauty, to
Adam, and so it has been down to the
present day. Heaven's best glt to
man is woman, and happy is that man
who is blessed with a good wile. She
Is everything to him, the very best
part of himself ; she shares his troubles
and griefs, soothes his pains, and in
the sell-sacrificing spirit of her love
takes upon herself more than half of
the trials of life. A good wile is a
treasure beyond compare, and, as we
said above, there are more prizes than
blanks, the Divine economy having so
ordained it. But there are women who
by birth, education and habit are en
tirely unfit for the, relation of wife and
mother, and none but fools would
enter the bonds- of matr'imony with
them, and they are so easily recogniza
ble that it is unnecessary to describe
them. Neither is It necessary to show
the qualities of those "best gifts."
There is a distinctive mark about them,
altogether unmistakable to a man with
his eyes open. We are led to these re
fleetitons by the too evident want of
appreciation on the part of some man
for their wives, and how It Is so we
can scarcely realize ; the clinging,
sensitive, delicate nature of woman
should appeal to the best feelings of
the heart of man ; her boundless love,
her sacrifices in a thousand little ways
are enough to touch any and all but
the hardest, most callous heart. To
the man who is blessed with one of
these prizes we say, show a greater
appreciation of the "gift" than ever
you have done before, and It will come
back to you in a much larger measure
than you can dream of. And to the
other class our advice is just the same.
