Constables Placed in Pickens County.
Acting upon a report by Chief
State Constable I lammet, Governor
Moy ward recently ordered Mr. Ham
met to agnin place dispensary con
st aides at work in Picketts county.
They will ho paid out of the pro
ceeds of a special levy of a half mill
ill that county. Mr. Hato met also
tonde a report as to Newberry, but
action as to that county lias been
postponed for further investigation.
Mr. Ilnmmet's report is as follows,
addressed to the Governor:
"At your request I paid a visit to
Newberry and Picketts counties last
week, and endeavored to gather such
information ns would enable me to
mak<> to you an impartial report of
the actual situation with reference to
tito enforcement of tho law, which
report I trust will prove satisfactory.
"At Newberry I conferred with n
number of the most prominent peo
ple, both for and against the dispen
sary, ami from a careful review of
what was "old me I am led to believe
that tlie local oflicinls and the bettor
element of the citizens desire the en
forcement of the law, and are en
deavoring to compel it in tho city,
lint at the same time I am forced to
the conclusion that it is being vio
lated in certain parts of tho county
outside of tile town, and I would
recommend that constables be placed
in tin* county where it is necessary
to prevent the trafti'i in whiskey aa
long as it may be deemed advisable.
"From Newberry I went to Diek
ens, where I found about the same
conditions existing, with the excep
tion that I satisfied myself that liquor
is being sold in the towtis as well as
in the country. Here, too, I inter
viewed a number of substantial and
well-posted citizens, eliciting from
them sufficient information t<> war
rant tin? above opinion. I learn that
the distillers are again active, and
that most of the whiskey being used
"In view ol* the above fitcts 1
recommend that constables be placed
in Dickens county where necessary."

Kneeling at the bedside of her

dying, Miss Elsie Anderson, a promi
nent young society girl of this city,
was secretly married on October 4
to Hubert Hutchinson, says a New
The ceremony was performed by
the girl's father, tho Kev. Thomas
W. Anderson, and was witnessed
only by the mother of the young
man and one other person.
On September 6 the young man
was taken violently ill in Iiis o til ce
and was taken to St. Luke's Hos-1

was suffering from appendicitis, and ,
an operation followed.

Curtis, the house physician, said that
ho could not recover. When tho
young man was told that he must
die, ht; asked to be married. The
girl knelt at the bedside of her
sweetheart, whom she believed to
he ?lying, and lifted him tenderly in
her arms, while her father pro
nounced tile words that bound them
together for the few hours which the
doctors had declared ho bad to live.
The doctor and nurse had been out
of the room during the ceremony,
and not a hint of what had happened
reached them until yesterday, when
a few intimate friends of the young
couple learned of the wedding.
From the hour of this strange
marriage the young man seemed to
take a new grip on life and, defying

that the penally was too severe for tho

held nobody could hu put in stripes or
