charge the jury when Juror Willis'
head was seen to fall backward.

A DESERTED INFANT.
Pathetic Story Comes From Richland
Columbia, August 2.-At the court
house in the county supervisor's of
fice, a two months old girl baby was
the mu-te witness of a pathetic story
of desertion. The baby was brought
here from a small settlement near
Eastover, in this county, and unless
the county officials can get some one
to care for it in a few days it will
have to be cared for at the alms
house. The mother of the child is
known, but she is now in Sumter
county, and will hardly be brought
Mr. James Addison. a well known
farmer, brought the child here and
stated that it had been left at his
father's house by a woman named
Beele Robinson. The wo'ian had
always lived in that community and
had been married twice. The Ias-t
husband deserted her, but turned up
again and seemed to take a dislike
to the child and said that he would
no't live with her as long as she kept
The woman then, it seems, deliber
* erately planned to get ,rid of the in
fant and day before yesterday left it
on the door step of Mr. H. D. Addi
son's house. The baby was recog
* nized at once and a visit was made to
the woman. It was found tha-t she
was arranging to leave and was
warned not to go. She promised
that she would not leave and tha't she
would go for the baby at once. and
the men took her word for it. When
everybody had gone she went to the
next station and flagged a train and
left the neighborhood.
The county supervisor will endeav
or to get some one to adopt the
baby. and if that is impossible it will
be sent to the poor house.
Good Work in Getting Anderson
Man Appointment in Marine
Washington. August 3.--The ap
pointment Tuesday of Jeter R. Hor
ton, of Williamston, Anderson coun
ty, as a second lieutenant in the U. S.
Marine Corps is an evidence of the
influence of Congressman Wyatt
Aiken with the government author
ities at the national capaal.
To secure a second lieutenancy in
the marine corps it is necessary for
the applicanit to first be designated
by the secretary of the navy for an
examination mentally. morally and
professionally. It was through Mr.
Aiken's influence, assisted by Senator
Tillman, that Mr. Horton secured
his designation for an exammnation in
March of this year. Mr. Hor'ton
passed a successful physical examina
tion in March. but failed on the sub
ject of mathematics in the mental ex
amination. He was re-designated for
an examination in June. In this ex
amination he failed physically, but
made the highest mark of the entire
class in the mental examination. Con
gressman Aiken then wvent to work
and secured another physical exami
nation for Mr. Horton.
-The surgeons again made an un
favorable report. but Mr.* Aiken was I
determined that his man should land.
He again took the matter up with the
navy department: In fact. he came
tu Washington in Mr. Horton's be
half and secured the consent of the
secretary of the navy to waive thc
physical defects and commission Mr
Horton. Such zeal and determination
on the part of Mr. Aiken in behalf of
his constituents has characterized
his work throughout his term of of
lice. South Carolina needs more

GREENVILLE'S COTTON CROP.!
it Has Been Attacked By Strange
Pest-Leaves Turn Brown and Die.
Greenville. August 4.-Cotton
plants in the field along the Augusra
road, from this city almost as far as
Princeton in Laurens county, have
been attacked by some kind of
blight which resembles rust, bu*
which appears to be far more pernic
ious and baneful in its effects, than
either rust or what is usually known
as blight. In fact none of the plan-t
ers, familiar with the various diseases
to which the cotton plant in this sec
tion is heir, has the least idea what
this new e%-emv can be. It attacki
the tender leaves, and in a few days
they turn brown. wilt and die. The
boll is not attacked and the new
scourge is evidently not the cele
brated and greatly dreaded weevil.
First, small spots appear on the un
der side of the leaf. They grow thick
er rapidly, as though innumerable lit
tle insects were feeding on the sur
face. and soon the entire leaf is brown
and dead. It is not devoured by the
inesects, or whatever the cause of
the destruction may be, but seems
rather to be poisoned.

A (log at Hagenhof, in Brunswick,
Germany, has led to the detection of
a child murderer. The victim wvas
the eleven-year-old daughter of a
farmer. She was found dead in a
shed, and it was supposed that one
of the farm hands, of - -yhom there
was a score, had committed the
crime. They were summoned by the
police, and placed in a row in the
farm yard, The dog was then taken
into the room where the body of the
murdered girl lay, and then to the
shed where the body was found.
When led into the farm yard the ani
mal rusherd straierht at a laborer
named Duwe and bit his leg. Think
ing this might be a mere matter of
chance, the police ordered Duwe to
change his clothes and take a dif
ferent position in the line of men. A
second time the log rushed at him,
and hit his leg again. Duwe was so
overcome that he confessed his guilt.
