products of civilization. Hie is a
master of the science of human ex
perience. I He sells his clients the
results of that experience and is*thus
the merchant of wisdom. The labors
of many generations of legislators
and judges enrich his stores. His
learning is sufficient to enable hini
to realize the comparative littleness
of all human achievements. A
great lawyer will not do a mean
thing for money. F-e hates vice
and delights to stand forth a cham
pion of virtue. Neither love of
friends nor fear of foes can swerve
him from the path of duty. He
proves that honesty is the best
policy and that peace pays both
lawyer and client better than con
trovesy. In a legal contest he will
give his client the best l)resentation
of whatever points of fact or law
in his power. but he will neither
pervert the law nor falsify the facts
to defeat an adversarv. The motto
of,his battle flag is fidelity to the
law and facts-semper fidelis."
. Such was the character of the
lawyers of Nwe.berrv. There was
Job Johnstone, a luminous star in
the galaxy of the greatly good:
Tin- 'e J. Caldwell. with clear in
tellect, logical mind. and conscien
tious soul: John Belton O'Neall.
of sound. sagacious. eloquent. un
tameable vigor. carrying everything
before him like a tornado. and ad
vancing every good word and work.
No wonder the state. .knowing the
profound ability and purity of these
lawyers, elevated them to the high
est judicial positions. There. too.
was Captain Jack Caldwell. the
most brilliant and gifted advocate
of his day: P. C. Caldwell and
cheery, attractive personality and
easy elocution: Simeon Fair.
strong, earnest, wise, and generous.,
physically and intellectually a
grand man: Thos. H. Pope, the
embodiment of logic ->nd energy.
with splendid abiTity an' intellec
tual powers: he was learned, ac
curate, just, andl industrious: he
should be named among the greatly
good: Silas L. Heller, a .cultivated.
gifted. fluent lawyer: Robert Dun
lap. solid, strong. pleasant. and at
tractive: Nicholas Summer. a bril
liant star of the first magnitude.
The only one I now remember im
mediately following the above was
that amiable. learned, faithful law
ver. Henry Summer:
*-A mani more pure and just and
WVas never born into the earth."
Ah! Newherry bad grand law
years in those o' I times. Is the bar
decadent and has its fallen away
from the high ideals of the fathers ?
As long as I knew it it had many
true and great lawyers, and I be
lieve from what L knowv that it still
maintains its high character. Oi
the present lawyers I may say I
knowv none. It is true 1 knew

that Y. J. Pope. for his ability and
purity. occupies the highest judic

mantle of his father has fallen
upon him. I know something of
George Johnstone from having
read all the proceedings in the Til.>
man trial, from which I concluded
that he was not only Tillman's rock
of defense, but was Tillman's de

..Proper Treatment of Pneumonia...
Pneamonia is too dangerous a dis
ease for anyone to attempt to doctor
himself, although h emay have the
proper remedies at hand. A physician
should always be called. It should be
borne in mind. however, that pneu
rmonia alwavs results from an attack
of the grip. and that by giving Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy the threat
ened attack of pneumonia may be
warded off. This remedy is also used
by physicians in the treatment of
neumonia with the best resuts. Dr.
W. J. Smith. of Sanders, Ala., who is
also a druggist. says of it: "I have
been selling Chamberlain's Corgh
Remedy and prescribing it in my prac
