An Able Jurist, Fair and Fearless inC
The Discharge of His Duty.
Abbeville Press and Banner.
Although competent and active,
Judge Ernest Gary is to have oppo,
sition in 'he election of his successox
tt the approaching session of the leg
It will be remembered that Judge
Gary refused to oppose his predeces
sor, Judge Joseph B .Kershaw, in
ca-e he desired re-election and it was
oni;r after that able and faithful judge
had decided that he did not wish to
be re-elected that Judge Gary con
sented for his name to be mentioned
in connection with the 'udgeship. It 1
would be a pleasure to lonow that
Judge Gary would be treated with the
same distinguished consideration. 1
After the election, Judge Gary
commenced his judicial <.areer at 1
Camden, the home of Judge Kershaw,
who intrcoduced him to the bar in
open court as his friend, and paid
a high tr'bute to the~ q.ualifeations
fr that exalted office. In after years
no doubt Judge Gary would be proud
to show the same consideration to
his successor. Judge Gary had op
position when he was first elected,
but he received one hundred votes
more than his opponent.

justice, courteous to the members of 1
Ithe bar, presiding with dignity, and
ever regardful of the convenience and I
comfort of jurors and witnesses it
would be a matter of regret if the
state should be deprived of his servi
ces. The promptness wvith which he
dispatches the business of the' court
saves many dollars to the taxpayers,
and his ability is attested by the num
erous cases in which his decisionsj
have been affirmed by the supreme

ions. He is in the prime of life, of
obust constitution, and many friends

OID TIME COOKERY.
Ourious Receipts That Were in Use
In the Fifteenth Century.
An old volume, the "Noble Boolk

vritten abcut the year 1467, contains
nany rare and curious receipts in
ise in those days not only for ordi
iary dishes, but those to be eaten on
'ast and fish days. It is curious in
-eading this cookery book to find
hat there are birds, beasts and fishes,
he same courses and sometimes the
ame names to dishes as in a modern

Somc of the recipes in this quaint
