Bedenbaugh Is Ill.
According to 'the report of In
spector W. J. McCartha. who made a
thorough examination of the affairs
of the Pro-sperity dispensary yesterday
there is a shortage in that dispen
sary of S1.075.41. less $110.25. which
the inspector :ays he understands is
in Hawkin- Brother' safe.
The dispenser. Mr. A. Lester Bede.i
ba.gh. is c(nined to his bed with ill
ness. A warrant has been sworn (utj
by Mr. Jacob Senn. chairman of the
county board f.r his arrest.
The sureties on his bond. which is for
three thousand dollars. are Messrs.
A. H. Hawkins. G. Y. Hunter and E.
Mr. Bedenbaugh's sickness led to
the discovery of the shortage. Mr.
Bedenbaugh became unable to attend
to the affairs of the dispensary and
left it in charge of Mr. Preston
Cannon. Mr. Cannon in selling
the liquor came across a number of
empty cases under the boxes which
contained liquor. Upon making this
discovery he went to Bedenbaugh's
father, who told him he knew nothing
about the matter. He then locked the
dispensary. Inspector McCartha was
sent for and he with the members of
the county board on Wednesday and
yesterday morning made an examina
tiori of the affairs of the dispensary.
As stated. Mr. Bedenbaugh is con
fined to his bed with sickness. and
The Herald and News was not able
to secure any statement or explana
tion from him.

Solicitor T. S. Sease.
In an important case in the court
at Greenwood last week. the Green
wood Journal has the following to
av of Solicitor Sease:
"Solicitor Sease handled the case
admirably and added new laurels
to his brow for his faithful and
clear presentation of the facts
as brought out during the trial.
H is speech was such a one as
is not heard every day in a
court room. A gentleman who lis
tened to it remarked after leaving the
court house that he could not see for
his life how that jury could fail to
convict, and be it said to their credit
tht they did not fail."
Mr. Sease has made a very efficient
and successful prosecuting attorney.
The attorney general's report shows
that he has secured more convictions
in his circuit last year than were had
in any other circuit in the state.
He is a Newberry man and his
Newberry friends are gratified at
the success he has attained. He is
a candidate for re-election and it
goes without saying that he will carry
his honmecounty practically unani

6"WITHIN T VAIL."
High Appreciation of Mr. John A.
Chapman's Book by a New
Mr. John A. Chapman has received
a letter from a gentleman in Man
chester. New Hampshire. who ex
I presses such high appreciation of Mr.
Chapman's poetical works that a
few extracts are made from the let
ter. as follows:
*1 have all the poetical books you
have published. I am fondest of
'Within the Vail.' I ought to value
the Bible more, but I declare to you
that I do not read it as much as I
do 'Within the Vail.' Do you not
realize that in it is the outline of the
true and entire pbilosophy of the spir
itual. the real world. While not ex
haustive. it is suggestive, clear and
correct. I keep 'Within the Vail' at
my pillow and my last thought at
night is found somewhere in that
book. Some poems in 'Poems for
Young and Old' I like. and many
stanzas from the 'Wandering Jew.' I
am speaking to you unconventionally
and as if I knew you intimately when
I say that if I only had the means I
would like to place about as much
more matter from the other books
as in bound in 'Within the Vail' with
most all that it contains. making a
work of 400 pages and suggesting the
grandest related themes of the New
Age. Of course I like the shorter
poems that do not bel6ng to that
class. I only meant to select those
of deeper spiritual import."
