- The 20th of October.
We have planned 10 have a
"Work Day" offering in favor of
the Epworth Orphanage, on Oct.
the 20th, inst. WVe desire to have
as many people as will to donate
their earnings of that day to the
support of the Orphanage.
There are thousands of men and
women, boys and girls, who could
-well afford to give the earnings of
one day to the support of a cause
so worthy and deserving as that of
providing for the more than one
hundred fatherless little ones placed
under the care of the Methodist
church in South Carolina, for support
and training. It will be a small
matter to the individual to make
this contribution, but the gifts of
the many will aggregate a helpful
sum for the care of the orphans.
Let some one be appointed in every
community to take charge of the
Iofferings and remit to us, but if
prefierable the individual may send
his own offering. WVe hope. the
chidreni throughout the state wil]
be encouraged to take an active part
in this matter, and that all the friends
of thle Orphans will co-operate with
Ius in making the day a success.

WILL NOT HANG.
Sentence For Hoyt Hayes Commuted
To Life Term-Governor
Hoyt Hayes will not be hanged.
Gov. Heyward has commuted his
sentence to life imprisonment in the
state penitentiary. This action was
based principally on the decision of
an expert examiner of questioned
handwriting. Hayes had been can
victed of having kilied his wife, and
the evidence was purely circumstan
tial, with nothing to show motive,
and for that reason it appealed to the
governor that there might be cause
for doubt; the statement of the ex
pert increases that feeling of doubt
to such an extent that Gav. Heyward
is unwilling to see the man suffer the
death penalty. On the other hand he
does not grant an unconditional par
don for that reason that there are so
many circumstances unfavorable to
the accused that a commutation of
sentence seems to him to be the only
The whole question seemed to rest
on the truth or falsity of the state

woman had been written by her.

Heyward submitted the matter to an

then came to his decision. The gay
