Yesterday afteruoon there was a
wreck on the Southern Railway near
Broadway trestle, about four miles
east of the city. It happened- to the
passenger train due here from Bel ton
at 3.40 o'clock. The train was made
up of a loaded coal car, an oil tank
car, a combination mail and express
car, and two passenger coaches. Juat
beyond the trestle is a very abrupt
curve in a cut, and I jre all the cars,
except the engine and one passenger
car, were derailed and turned over
against the bank. The train had a
number of passengers, hut, remarkable
to say, not one of them or nny .-one of
the train crew were injured. The track
was badly torn up for a di -tance of
fifty feet or more. The wrecking crew
and section hands soon reached the
scene and will clear the track to-day.
At an early honr this morning it is not
known what caused the wreck.
The hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs.
S. J. McGill, in Rock Mills Township,
on Christmas Day, was the scene of a
beautiful, quiet, home wedding, when
their eldest daughter, Miss Maude Pal
mer McGill, and Mr. James A. Stewart
were united in marriage. The beauti
ful, impressive ceremony was perform
ed at 8:80 o'clock p. m. by Rev. O. J.
Copeland, in the presence of members
of the respective families and a few
invited guests. It was our good for
tune to be one of the latter, having had
the pleasure of riding out therewith
our good friend, the officiating minis
ter. At the honr named the happy
couple marched into the tastefully
decorated parlor, which had been dark
ened by closing the blinds and then
brilliantly lighted by several lamps,
which lent additional beauty and sol
emnity to the scene. Immediately
after the ceremony a most snmptnous
feast of good things were spread, which
were heartily enjoyed by all present.
The bride is a most excellent and pop
ular young lady of her old home sec
tion, and the groom, who is a prosper
ous and energetic fanner of the Starr
section, is fortunate in winning her
hand and heart. May Heaven's richest
blessings bo their portion through life.
On Christmas Day, about 8 o'clock p.
m., Twine Thompson was shot and
killed by Tom Rutledge. Both parties
are negroes and live near the eastern
suburbs of the city very near each
other. The shooting occurred in a
field between their houses. The diffi
culty seems to have originated from
the fact that Thompson tied his cow in
Rutledge's field. The latter called to
Thompson and ordered him to take the
cow away, which, Rutledge aays, he re
fused to do, and advanced on him with
an open knife, when Rutledge fired,
the shot killing him instantly. Rut
ledge started to the city to surrender
to the sheriff, claiming that he killed
Thompson in self-defense. In the j
meantime Deputy Dillingham had
heard of the killing and started for the
sc?ne. Cn the way he met Rutledge,
whom he brought in and lodged in
jail. That afternoon Coroner Ban
ister held an inquest over the remains,
and the verdict of the jury was that
Thompson came to his death from a
gunshot wound at the hands of Rut
ledge, and that Pink Wallace, another
negro, was accessory after the fact.
The dead negro held in his hand loose
ly anjupen knife and vVallnco is feus
pected of having placed it there. Wal
lace was arrested-and*lodged in jail.
