A dispatch from Greenville says
that Thomas Austin, a well known
resident of Greenville, vas perhaps
mortally wounded in a fight with
Thomas Ross, a well known plumber,
Sunday afternoon in Tanner &
Wood's livery stable on west Wash
Autin and Ross prior to the difficul
tv are said to have been the best of
friends. Ross dined with Austin at
the latter's home on Washington
stret Sunday, and everything was go
ing along smoothly between the two
men until they engaged in a scuffle,
and Austin, becoming angry struck
Ross several bloWs in the face. Ross
is a good-natured man, and it is said
it takes a great deal to provocate
him. He became angry, however, at
the rough treatement Austin gave
him, 'and picked up a rake leaning
against the wall nearby.
Austin continued ta abuse him, and
he struck him a blow over the head
with the rake,. which will probably
prove fatal. At the time it was
thought Austin was not badly injured
but upon examination of the wound
by a physician it was discovered the
skull was crushed.
Austin's physicians decided that an
operation was necessary, and the op
eration was successfully performed,
but the man's condition is extremely
grave. The skull was crushed in the
centre of the crown and the physi
cians took from the brain several
pieces of crushed skull. .
Ross regrets the occurrence very
much, and is doing all within his
power for the injured man.
It is said that Austin was drinking
heavily Sunday, and that he was
doubtless lost to all reason when he
Austin is a son of Col. Frank Aus
tin of Fork Shoals. He Was at one
time a member of the police force.
A Sensible Marriage.
Mr. Henry Page and Miss Annie
Crouse were married ' Thursday.
It was a marriage ..dnd unique.
There was nothir. fthe same-old
thingness about it. The bride was not
dressed in a handsome going-away
gown and did not carry a lovely bo
quet of maiden hair ferns. The color
scheme was not pink and white,
neither was Mendelssohn's rendered
by the accomplished Miss Anybody
at all. I' was all primitive, simple
sincerity. Good old Father Wyatte
performed the ceremony. He had
known them all their lives. He just
talked to them sensibly, soothingly,
as to a petted child. They had never
been married before and were bashful
and timid. Henry, do you take Anne?
Anne, do you take Henry? to live to
gether and love one another so long
as ye both shall live, world without
end, Amen. Two sensible people
were married at a sensible age and
Peverybody is glad.

which they have come together,

"Before the war," said Quay, "whe:
I was a young man, I taught schoc
for three years in Mississippi, I mad
my home with the parents of this wc
man, and they treated me as a mem

unfortunate, and the daughter need

that your answer is not final."
The president shook -his head.
"I regret it very much," he sai
"but under the circumstances no oth

"Very well," said Quay, quietly, a

There are few diseases that inflict
more torture than rheumatism and
there is probably no disease for which
such a varied and useless lot of rem
edies have been suggested. To say
that it can be cured is, therefore, a
bold statement to make, but Chamber
lain's Pain Balm, which enjoys an ex
tensive sale, has met with great suc
cess in the treatment of this disease.
One application of Pain Balm will re
lieve the pain, and hundreds of suf
ferers have testified to permanent cures
by its use. Why suffer when Pain
Balm affords suc.h quick relief and
costs but a trifle? For sale by Smith
