A senes of meetings for young men
have been inaugurated in the city
which are hold every Sunday afternoon
in the Central Presbyterian church.
The speaker for Sunday was Albert S.
Johnstone, now a student of the Uni
varsity of Virginia. The meetings
take the place of the Young Men's
Christian Association in the larger
cities, being similar in purpose. An
derson is large enough to support a
nourishing association, with gymna

Col. A. B. Andrews, the newly elec

road, was in tue city the tir?t of tho
week looking after the interests of his
road. Considerable importun?e was
attached to bia election iu view of tho
fact that it waa aunnounced that t he
Southern would extend its connections
across the mountaina and thus give
this city its long cherished route to
tho west. When asked about the ex
tension Col. Andrews said that it was
tho purpose of the Southern to tako
np this great work, but he gave no
definite news except to say that it
would be done. Col. Andrews waB
formerly connected with the Blue

The two storr residence of Mrs.
Annie O'Donnell, on McDuflie street,
was partially destroyed by fire Satur
day night. The fire was discovered
j uta before midnight bursting through
the roof of the kitchen. The family
had retired and the Hames had gained
considerable headway before some one
passing by saw the burning building.
The fire department responded prompt
ly but it had considerable difficulty in
extinguishing the flames. The main
body of the building was greatly dam
aged. The house waa fully covered
by immrance.lnnd Mrs. O'Donnell will
probably lose nothing from damage to
the building or to the furniture. As

to become effective the first of Septem

states that his growing law practice
demands so much of bis time that he

His relations with John G. Capera, the
District Attorney, and the other offi

very pleasant and ha regrets to cover
bia official connection with them.

Death of James F. McFall.
James P. McFall died at his home
four miles east of the cit}' Monday
night after a brief illness. He was
stricken ten days ago with appendici
tis, and an operation was performed
Sunday in the hope of saving his life.
Mr. McFall was a son of the late
William McFall, aud at the time of his
death lived at the old home place. Ho
was a young man of line diameter and
his in tl ne nee was always exerted for
the good in his community. His farm
ing interests were extensive and very
successful under his thrifty manage
ment. He wus 20 years old and un
married. He is survived by his moth
er, Mrs. Sarah McFall, two brothers,
J. Swilling McFall and Henry M, Mc
Fall. of this county, and a sister, Mrs.
Hettie Findley, of Greenville.
The funeral exercises were held nt

cemetery of the First Presbyterian
Church by the side of his father and

Arrests at the Barbecue.
Sheriff Nelson H. Green aud his i
Deputy, VV. N. Scott, received slight
cuts VVedneBday afternoon at the Far
mers' Harbecue while arresting lour
young men for disorderly conduct, at
the dinuer table. The men are: A L.
Whitten, Young Richey, H. F. Richey
and J. H. Richey, all of whom live in
the Pendleton section of the county.
They were lodged in jail after the diffi
culty, but they have been released on
bond to appear at the next term of the
Sheriff Green eays that the young
men were behaving in an un becoming
manner at the dinner table, and upon
being ?inked to quiet them he went
over where they were for that pur
pose. The oldest of the Richey broth
ers, it is said, interferred, and the
sheriff ordered his deputy to take tho
mun into custody. Some one drew a
knife, and both the sherill* and his
deputy were slightly cut in making the
arrests. Their wounds were slight
and in no sense of a serious nature.
The sheriff'had a narrow escape as che
knife inflicted a shallow out across tho
abdomen and, if it had gone deeper,
serious reBults might have followed.
The young men claim that the Deputy
HI drift" struck one of the Richey boys
..blow with a stick before the knife
..-OH used. The mutter will probably
come up at the next term of court.
