At an early hour on Saturday
morning Jordan Harp, a colored
farmer of the county, met with a very
painful accident at the ginnery of the
Southern Oil mill.. He was standing
above the conveyer with a sack in
his hand. He dropped the sack into
the conveyer, and in some way his
hand was also drawn in. Fortunately
the conveyer became choked and the
belt slipped, stopping the machinery.
Consequently he escaped with two
very deep cuts across the top of his
hand. Dr. W. G. Houseal rendered
the necessary surgical assistance.

The Oil Mill Thief.
The employees at the Southern Oil
mill give an interesting acocunt of
the way in which Mr. Harry Domi
nick caught the office boy who had
been abstracting money from the
cash drawer. The negro, Willie WVil
son, had been suspected for some
time, and it was for him that the trap
was laid. Mr. Dominick marked a
dollar bill, placed it in an envelope,
and laid it in the part of the drawer
from which the other money had
been taken. He then ordered the boy
to sweep out the office and made as
if to leave the premises, saying that
he would be gone for some time. In
about five minutes he returned and
found the boy still in the office indus
triously sweeping. He opened the
money drawer and found the dollar
gone. Having locked the door he
covered the boy with a gun, made
him shell out the stolen dollar auLu

DR. SCHERER IN AUGUSTA.
Address on the War Between Japan
The following report of an address
I by Dr. J. A. B. Scherer, delivered in
I the Holy Trinity church, in Augusta.
appeared in a recent issue of the
Dr. J. A. B. Scherer, who was in
the city yesterday. for the purpose of
I speaking at the Reforamtion Day cel
ebration at St. Matthews church in
the evening, delivered an interesting
talk at Holy Trinity Lutheran church
yesterday at the morning service, in
which he discussed at length the war
that is now going on between Japan
Dr. Scherer spent several years in
Japan as a missionary, and is familiar
from experience with the people and
the customs of that country. He has
kept up with the present war closely
and is almost an authority on the sub
ject. He explained to the congrega
tion yesterday the causes leading up
to the conflict, and the effect it would
have in that section,. relative to the
spread of religion in future..
The speaker was of opinion that
after the war the Christian churches
would have an excellent opportunity
for gaining ground in Japan. The
people then would be better inform
ed, and more readly to embrace the
faith. He stated that the country
was now very largely heathen.
The talk was interesting and was
enjoyed very much. Dr. Scherer has
a lecture on Japan, which he has once
delivered in Augusta. A movement
was begun yesterday, looking to hav
ing him return and again deliver it to
a local audience. It is pronounced
the best description of the Flowery
Kingdom heard before.
