As .has been the case throughout,
during the lyceum course, the audi
torium was well filled on Friday
night, when Prof. Angelo Heiprin de
livered a highly interesting lecture,
with illustrations, of the terrible
cataclysm which wiped out the city
at the foot of Mount Pelee. The chief
interest in the lecture, aside from its
really Lremdous scientific value,
was the fact that Prof. Heiprin had
obtained his views and his knowledge
at fearful personal risk.
"Great oaks from little acorns
grow," and the product of the tiny
seed astonishes the world by its giant
dimensions. The growth of J. A.
Mimnaugh's business for the past ten
years has been just as remarkable
as the rearing of any giant tree
whose towering majesty ever graced
a forest. Ten years ago all there was
to J. A. Mimnaugh could have been
crow-ded into a small-sized wagon,
and if the wagon had been dragged
over a rough road the contents would
have rattled. His business was very
much like the tiny acorn. But ten
years passed. and the little acorn.
fanned and encouraged by the gentle
breezes wafted from fluttering leaves
of judicious advertisement, and wat
ered by the grateful and steady flow
of a liberal patronage. grew and
strengthened itself and spread, until
now this progressive business house,
like a mighty oak, has spread its ever
lengthening branches to the four
winds of the heavens, with the result
that business firms of lesser dimen
sions have been put forth literally and
figuratively "in the shade."
Mimnaugh's business is like the
proverbial oak in some other respects,
too. It doesn't stop growing. This
spring it is going to put out some
new and green and healthy sprouts
that will reach the zenith of fair
dealing and low prices. His name has
been synonimous for honest prices
and remarkable bargains for several
years, but he is going to fairly outdo
himself in the year 19o5. He still
believes in the salubrious effect of the
advertising breezes, and the tide of
liberal patronage is on the flood.

Mr. John J. Mayer, for years the
dispenser at this place, breathed his i
last in his apartments at the Crot
well hotel at 8 o'clock Friday night,
after a serious illness of only a few
days. The cause of his death was
congestion. Mr. Mayer had been in

Adam Mayer and two sisters, all of
whom reside in the county. His
wife preceded him to the grave a I
year ago. He was a memberof Grace 1

Popular in Augusta.
The following is taken from the
Augusta Chronicle of Sunday:
An engagement which has just
been announced, and which has been 1
anticipated with greatest interest in
Augusta, is that of Miss Myrtie
Schumpert, of Newberry, to Mr.
Charles Earle Bell, of Augusta. Mr. 1

have formally announced their daugh
The date of the wedding is not as
yet fixed, beyond the fact that it is
to occur in April. Both Miss Schum
pert and Mr. Bell are popular and
prominent in Augusta society.
During her visit last season to her
aunt, Mrs. Jiles M. Berry, Miss
Schumpert was among the greatly
admired social favorites of Augusta
and by her gracious and attractive
manners as well as by her charm of
her bright and winsome beauty, she
has made numbers of devoted and
loyal friends, who are eager to wel
come her here as one of the young
matrons of Augusta.
For the past two years Mr. Charles
Earle Bell has made his home in Au
gusta and has identified himself with
the social and business life here. He
has made numbers of friends and is -
esteemed and highly appreciated by
all who are associated with him in
busin.ess and in society.
Capt. Billy Smith Returns.
Capt. "Billie" Smith, the well
known veteran conductor of the
Greenville branch of the Southern
railway, will soon return to active
railroading. He has been living in
quiet at his home in Anderson for
about three years, but his fingers
have begun to tingle to feel the clip
of the punch again and he has asked
to be given a run.
Capt. Smith was given a leave of
absence for one year by P. I. Welles
while superintedent of the Savannah
division, with the privilege of retain
ing his relative rank. This was ex
tended for another year when it ex
pired. The extension was, made by
Superintendent H. A. Williams, who
had succeeded Mr. Welles wvhen the
latter resigned--The State, 9th.
Capt. Smith will resume his old run
on the Columbia and Greenville di
