In tho United States Circuit Court

county, charged with peonage. Judge
Brawiey >n his charge touched on the
special act of congress directly nt tho
practice of imprisoning people tor debt,
and said that the jurors must enquire
carefully into the facts of tho cneo be
fore them and find a true bill if they
were of the opinion that the cato should
be tried by the court; otherwise they
would be at liberty to throw it out.
Thia is the second peonage case that
has como up for trial in South Caro

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs.

pleasure and interest :
"Mr. George A. Wagoner returned to
Charleston yesterday morning after
an absence of several months, spent in
Germany and other places in Europe,
delighted with his trip and greatly im
proved in health. Mr. Wagener, ac
companied by M ra. Wagener and their
daughter, ?fies Louise Wagener, left
Charleston in July, sailing from New
York on the Holland-American liner
Noordan, the trip being taken in the
interest of Mr. Wagenei'a health. Tba
parly touched at Rotterdam. Holland,
and thence went direct to the famous
B id Nauheim, in Germany, where they
remained three mouthe. Mr. Wagener
waa Butlering with heart trouble, and
when the wonder! al improvement that
was wrought in bia physical condition
during his stay at Bad Nauheim ia con
sidered it is but natural that he should
be enthusiastic over the treatment.
He improved rapidly from the begin
ning of his stay, and thia improvement
continued during the whole of the
throe months he spent at Bad Nauheim.
The treatment ia entirely by baths,
reducing the frequency and increasing
the force of the heart action. Mr.
Wagener took the treatment under
the advice of Herr Prof. Dr. Schott,
who standa at the head of his profes
sion at Bad Nauheim, and whom Mr.
Wagener feels perfectly safe in recom
mending to every one going there.
"There were about 25,000 visitors in
Bad Nauheim during the past season,
and during hie three months' stay in
the village Mr. Wagoner came in con
tact with people representing nearly
every nation on the globe. The place
ia 448 feet above the level of the sea,
is beautifully situated, and is very at
tractive. With BO much to interest
and entertain of course time passed
..The party returned via Hamburg
to New York, op the atearuer Blucher,
encountering miserable weather dur
ing the whole passage. From New
York to Charleston the trip waa made
Mr. Wagener said last night that he
waa glad to get back ' to Charleston.
He was warmly welcomed by hia macy
friends, who were delighted to note
the great improvement in his health."
